I thought that was taking the piss when I first saw the post, but then when I watched the video, I knew it was legit as soon as I saw the PlayWay logo. That’s the guys who make Car Mechanic simulator, and it’s fucking legit. That’s probably going to be a pretty good game.

Same, never heard of them but also assumed it was a joke, at the very least they know how to make hype trailers.

[/quote]I’d bet the game will be pretty quality. They’ve had a fair amount of practice mastering the “Take mechanical things apart and fix them” style of play, and while there is some quibbles, they’ve got the entire thing down pretty tight. Car Mechanic simulator is one of my Zen games, when I’m feeling shitty, I’ll fire it up, fix a few cars and chill out.

How accurate is it? Like can I learn useful things from this game?

[/quote]Well, it’ll never make you a diagnostician, and it is simplified, but also decently accurate. You’re not going to turn yourself into a whiz-bang home mechanic with it, but if you want to learn about how cars work and what different parts do, it is reasonably educational - kind of like a detailed, interactive cut-away book with puzzles. You can learn plenty of useful stuff, especially if you don’t know much about cars, but it’s no substitute for, say, actually getting in and wrenching on an old shitbox.

Persona 5 getting really good reviews. Pretty stoked. Now to spend the next two years trying to finish that game. Or at least I’m assuming it’s gonna go the same way it did with me and Persona 4.

Saw this at PAX a bunch. It looked good. Should provide a few days of fun. Still not buying it until I’m done with the games I have already. I’ve learned my lesson.


#50

Also from PAX, new DLC for HackNet is coming out tomorrow.

(How do I do the shiny embed?)


#51

You just have to put the URL on its own line all by itself.


#52

This game is currently out on Steam it basically looks like Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes but if Zachtronics made the game Steam Link:


#53

Just saw this on Twitter. Comes out tomorrow. Too bad there is Zelda and hearthstone expansion. Still, I’m gonna keep it on the Steam wish list so I can play it after I play all the games I’ve already bought.

Little Witch Academia the game:


#55

Holy shit, those animations! I feel like I’m in the 90s again.


#56

I am hoping that this trailer is partially an animatic for a proper full Sonic CD intro but the question is would they go for something more “Toot Toot Sonic Warrior” or “Sonic Boom” for the song if they have an animated introduction.


#57

Screw Sonic Mania there is a new 2D mascot platformer coming back into town:


#58

Final Fantasy Picross


#59

Don’t get hyped over The Last Night, the developer is (was?) Gamergate supportive. The game was designed to have a plot ABOUT Gamergate ideologies.

The Wolfenstein II trailer is weird.
