I'll grant Tetris itself has that sort of thing, but many falling block "puzzle" games—for example, Puyo Puyo or Doctor Mario—do not. They're just uniformly shaped blocks.

I feel like I played at least one version of dr mario that had a puzzle mode.

Toaster has plenty of time to prepare the first part of their thesis.

AWESOME News!!

 

Out of nowhere, Greedfall 2: The Dying World has a new trailer and a Steam Page now up.

 

This is a prequel, taking place 3 years before events of the original Greedfall game.

 

Trailer:

Why are games that focus on stacking falling/rising blocks—such as Tetris—referred to as puzzle games? There’s nothing to figure out—like a puzzle—, the focus is entirely on planning ahead and reacting to circumstances as they arise. Or... is the fact that they’re called puzzle games the puzzle?

To early anywhere to try and wrap my head around this...it's like the old Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy...probably showing my age at this point

Good idea. I need to get back to the original Greedfall and get working on it.

You should always carry two sacks around with you, that way if anyone asks for your help you can say "sorry ive got these two sacks".

I will try again.

 

Maybe the puzzle part is being able to strategically arrange the items that randomly appear in such a way to maximize combos?

 

Perhaps quick thinking strategy game would be more appropriate? 

 

I know I catagorize these types of games as strategy when I add them to folders on the PS4 since I don't really have enough of these "puzzle" games to make a seperate folder.

Some old & early thoughts on it, when I bought base-game cheap on Epic Store.

I liked it enough - but it's tough. I really should re-check it out over on Steam, since I got one of the DLC's there too.

Kind of feel burned by the whole Borderlands/ Tina Tiny Wonderlands games.  They get discounted (or free) super quick and haven't even played them as much as I did Broderlands 2.  

 

 

Is there a known sickness for having to get the latest games on release day while also being a part of CAG? :whee:

If anyone is playing Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong on Epic, can you check if it supports cloud saves? If you have the game installed, click the three dots next to the title. There should be a "Enable Cloud Save" toggle if the game supports it.

Good not great BUT it's from a small team. I would LOVE for them to have a bigger budget and try a true seamless open world. 

I really enjoyed it but once you learn/crack the game you realize how small it is.

I wish society was a bit more accepting of adult entertainment versus pseudo-adult entertainment, i.e. everything needing to be violence focused.

Make love games, not war games. :P

True that. I mean it's whatever everyone is raised on. In the USA there is so much violence in all types of media (games, movies, the news, etc...) that you become desensitized. In somewhere like a European country like Germany, the adult type stuff is generally embraced and all. Just depends on the places, but I am tired of seeing mass violence happening all the time (I know this isn't the place for it), but it just flows down into the entertainment, like parents getting GTA V for their 10 year old or whatever. Stuff like eroge where the person is just in high school (have to be 18+ in the states), and falls in love or whatever is a no no. Also there is just random nudity in the games like GTA V (the strip club if I remember) or like God of War on the PS2 with Kratos going at it in the beginning of the game. No one batted an eye at those though.

On a personal note: If you don't already have this by now, you're truly an embarrassment as a CAG, so don't let us know when/if you successfully activate it. Also, DON'T YOU DARE SAY THANKS, because that'll give you away (duh), you Fake-Ass Gamer, but... you're welcome, I guess. Whatever. Fuck it

Probably should let that go to collections and then pay small amounts until you wait so long they let you negotiate down the debt.

 

Look into it at least.

 

We at CAG are CAG's in more ways than just games.

Being a leech on society, which is what people who don't pay their bills are, is not remotely the same as being thrifty.

It's not about not paying bills. It's about paying a reasonable bill in an unreasonable system.

 

I (and many other CAGs) visited Mexico and (now unfortunately) Russia to get cheaper priced games. Being thrifty, yeah, you could say that. Gaming the system, absolutely. Ethical...that's down to one's perspective, much like everything in life.

Get off your high horse and educate your ignorant self. I work in American healthcare, it is 100% a scam against the public. Corporations make billions in profit on the death, suffering, reduced quality of life, and fear of bankruptcy of their patients. Imagine if you bought a game on Steam and it said it was $60, but then when you went to play it, suddenly the price is $24,000 and they dont let you get a refund. You wouldn't be a leech right? You'd pay the $24k that you owe to Gaben right?? You sound like the coddled man-baby who has never worked an actual day in their life, had everything handed to them, but will claim "I pulled myself up by my bootstraps" when called out on it.

And to be totally off topic, can I say I'm kinda bummed that the Epic coupon is 25% off and not the previous straight $10 off.  Lame.
