    Also, buy turnips for 109. Go to Nooks Cranny the next day. 55 and then 58. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

    Happened to me last week. Bought in at 96, and they dropped to 35 by Tuesday. Had a spike on Wednesday and sold for 145. It'll get better, hopefully

     

    Also just checked my prices: Bought in at 94, down to 83. Yay...

  2. New NIN released out of nowhere again today! They dropped a follow up to 2008's GHOSTS I - IV.

     

    GHOSTS V - VI

     

    Released for free today. Hopefully a cool physical edition will hit at some point, but who knows? Download it for free on nin.com, check it out on youtube right now, and it'll hit the streaming platforms later today.

    any idea how much content is there? 

    They've said that it's the length of Half-Life 2, so quite a bit.

     

    I had to stop again because it scared me. Like, the zombies and headcrabs are unsettling enough when they're freaking life sized, but then they had to go and add a "find a flashlight and walk through the pitch black sewers" section. I made it about as far as my adrenaline would let me. I'll pick it back up tomorrow but God damn is it good.

     

    Also, you can pick up markers and draw on things. Sent this screenshot to my office mate:

  4. Half-Life: Alyx is overwhelming. Being in those environments is absolutely astounding. The level of care and obvious love for the material is evident. I want to take my time with this game and dissect it, piece by piece. I don't even know how to describe it, I got chills when the game started.

     

    It is the single greatest VR experience I've come across thus far, and is a piece of art.

  6. Update to the promised hollabox upgrade - v2 is still in beta for public sites (not us...) - v1 is available for self-hosting, but is 100% unsupported and generally not recommended by the devs. Hopefully we'll have something soon. Sorry for the multi-month delay...

    wait, so there hasn't been a generation of valve games since...when was episode 2, '07?  that's a long ass gen! 

     

    and portals totally worth motion sickness!

    That would be correct...ish. We've seen bits and pieces of the Source 2 engine here and there (DOTA 2 / the current CS:GO UI was actually done in Source 2 and then ported back to the Source engine), but we haven't seen a full fledged game, nor have we gotten the dev tools for the engine. 

     

    I would imagine we'll get something from this. Valve is really good at fostering a mod community based around their tools, this keeps their engines at least somewhat relevant for a while. The Source engine was used for everything from Half-Life 2 to CS:GO (don't quote me on that being the last title that used /uses it), and has been significantly upgraded along the way. That being said, I think this is the first step out the door for what Valve is trying to be now.

    wouldn't portal have made more sense here?

    Each new generation of Valve games has been heralded by a Half-Life game. I'm expecting all the Source 2 tools and other such goodies to be a part of this.

     

    Also, I think Portal would probably cause a shit ton of motion sickness.

    Oh the most inaccessible of all platforms too. Fuck you Gaben.

    I'm not so sure about this one. It looks like it'll probably run on just about any VR type (Index, Vive, The varied Oculus, Windows Mixed Reality) system (again, just about anything you can hook up to your computer and play stuff on Steam with), and I don't think it's necessarily unreasonable to be expected to play a 2020 AAA game on at least somewhat decent hardware. 

     

    Certainly the goal here is to sell more Index..es...Indices?...but people are freaking out about "needing a $1000+ thing to play it" when most of them probably have a PC that's vr ready, at the very least. That's just my two cents on that, though

  9. Actually, long story, but the people that actually cared the project now have control over it. The hosting stuff had little to do with it. It's in beta for "big sites", but should be pushed our direction soonish. Hopefully we'll have a fix in the next few weeks.

    sumb question but since i have them partitioned off now, can i grow grass or something else they can ear besides constantly buying hay for the silo?

    Build a Silo - harvest grass with the scythe. TADA YOU'VE GOT HAY. At this point, the barns and whatnot should start autofeeding the animals each morning. Forgot about that part.

    also ima finish the community center and prolly chill for a while, the desert dungeon is neat (and helping me fill out the museum when it's not kicking my ass) but there's not a lot left for me to do but uh, save up for catalogs? upgrade tools to iridium after using enough for sprinklers?

    I mean, that's the endgame, basically. Minmax the whole thing, and try to make the most efficient farm. Do all the friendship stuff. There's still the 

    Spoiler

    witch, and all that stuff that I don't think you've found yet. Plus a bunch of endgame content was added with the multiplayer update, so I don't think you've got to that point yet.

     There's still a bunch of stuff left to do - but I have the most fun minmaxing the shit outta my farm.
