Dav's saving that commentary for the new TTS. TTS now has become public domain since it was abandoned by the original creator.

It's interesting, though the hype is a bit extreme.

Is that a fact? Interesting...

In my deluded state, yes, this is happening. FACT.

Well shit. I had no idea these guys (Warhorse, developers of Kingdom Come: Deliverance) support Gamergate. I might have pirated the game had I known earlier.

Ugh. Well that's fucking gross to know. I was a Kickstarter backer, so my money was in their pockets long before that article, but still. Yuck.

I agree that the lockpicking on a controller is just atrocious. Like, unplayably bad. Fine with mouse and keyboard, though.

Mags, I never played through Gothic 2, but I've heard other people compare this to Gothic in feel and tone, so you may be pretty close to the mark there.

This may be a very Thursday thing to say, but now more than ever, the world needs a sequel to To Wong Foo, thanks for everything! Julie Newmar.

I'd heard something about that and that they've tried to explain the lack of minorities in the game as 'being historically accurate', which is a load of hooey.

It's a shame since the premise is pretty interesting, but I'll probably take a pass unless it's super cheap later and/or part of a bundle, both because it sounds like it's a little rough and also the whole dev situation.

Also, there's no way I can afford the $72 it's costing on Steam right now. Spigot's a little broke right now

I've just been watching RuPaul's Drag Race. It serves the same function for me (pure happiness).

Anyway, went and saw Black Panther with the wife. It is very good. Very, very good.

You're welcome, and I like your idea of a special save. I think some games have implemented a similar system in the past, although I cannot think of a specific example off the top of my head.

I got some of those vibes from the little I've seen about the game, but from what I understand this is meant to be "historical" whereas Gothic is very much fantasy.

If your boyfriend is told that he can watch a movie with Patrick Swayze, Wesley Snipes and John Leguizamo in drag throughout, opening the minds and hearts of a small rural town, and needs further convincing? Then I got nothin' for ya.

He wants to see it, we just haven't gotten around to it yet. I wish it was on Netflix.

Edit - So in a strange twist I got an e-mail from Netflix letting me know that To Wong Foo is now on there, yay!

Wouldn't a VPN do the same thing just a little bit cheaper? And with less paperwork?
