    I feel like I remember hearing this was in early discussions a few months ago as well.

    Oh neat, it's on sale at the moment on steam. Definitely worth they price. I got it on Android when it was on sale for $2, which was honestly a steal. I might buy it again on steam or switch one...

    Oh neat, it's on sale at the moment on steam. Definitely worth they price. I got it on Android when it was on sale for $2, which was honestly a steal. I might buy it again on steam or switch one day when I have more spare change, just to support the developer.

    I just played through Gorogoa on my phone. It was short, but honestly an incredible game. Never seen anything like it. The central puzzle mechanic is just so cool. I almost want to play it again...

    I just played through Gorogoa on my phone. It was short, but honestly an incredible game. Never seen anything like it. The central puzzle mechanic is just so cool. I almost want to play it again even though I just played it.

    If you haven't heard of it it's hard to explain honestly. There's 4 panels, each its own navigable scene, and different panels can fit together or overlap depending on what you're looking at within each panel, and rearranging them is how you progress thorough the game.

    Apparently one guy developed nearly the entire thing, it was his first game, and it took him 5 years or so. He did everything but the music/sound. Pretty impressive. The game does have a pretty singular vision.

    Loved the game.

    Super Hexagon, if you count beating hyper hexagonest as finishing the game. I've gotten back into it recently and now I can't even been normal hexagonest. That mode just kicks my ass. No idea how...

    Super Hexagon, if you count beating hyper hexagonest as finishing the game. I've gotten back into it recently and now I can't even been normal hexagonest. That mode just kicks my ass. No idea how anyone beats the hyper one. I absolutely love the game though.

    I know this thread is a bit old (I don't use Tildes very often), but if you still have Broken Age, I always wanted to try that one. Either way, thanks!

    As for something unusual, Super Cloudbuilt sure looks pretty out there! You wouldn't mind if I took it off your hands?

    Anyways, thanks for running this thing! You're doing a mighty fine service here.

    Cities that you can easily navigate without a car. I mean I know there's some of them, but they should ALL be like that.

    This could work in a one-on-one debate, but is there some way for the public to combat this tactic on the much larger scale it's at right now?

    In the US at the moment, it also seems to have the intended effect of keeping the media focused on him, and providing a constant enemy for him and his supporters to fight against. That last part is actually rampant in political parties and even ideologies.

    Another reason this is effective, is that it's difficult to know the truth unless you're invested in the specific subject in question. And there's so much information out there that no one can keep track of it all. It's easier to just listen to someone you like and put your blind trust in them, especially if you don't have the time, energy or will to investigate things on your own. People are guilty of this in all facets of life to some degree, and this method uses it to their advantage.

    I've been going through the whole Beatles discography in chronological order. Well, almost chronological. I was looking at a list that put Magical Mystery Tour after everything else, but apparently since the list was specifically UK albums that's just when it was released there, it was actually released elsewhere in '67.

    I also realized there were some singles that weren't on albums that I had missed, and apparently some of those are on MMT, and some are on "Past Masters".

    I figured out I missed some songs while on the White Album, got to the song "Glass Onion", and John started referencing a bunch of songs I hadn't heard. Colored me confused. Looked up a couple of the singles (Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields). Finished the White Album after that. Now I'm listening to MMT.

    Really diggin' Strawberry Fields Forever. Hadn't really heard much of it before, has a pretty epic feel to it. Let me take you down, 'cause I'm going to...
