Ahem. I know.
First off, it doesn't show the payoff for the AI for the last move. What does it get out of that? I know, but the game doesn't show it.
It seems sort of like a random thing to do. It doesn't show how you can then get 10^10^large paperclips afterwards, thus hammering the reward function.

I'm super excited about the forthcoming Phoenix Point. Cthulhu-ish XCOM thing from the designer of the original. They were some of my faves and Gollop seems pretty ambitious with a complex strategy layer as well as the tactical turn-based combat.

First that, and now Fred and Paul with some new Starcon. All my Christmasses, etc!

I backed that game! I also wanted in on the investment program...but unfortunately it was only available in the USA...THe poor Canuck in me was disapointed.

Interesting. I'm fine to back a game but don't think I'd ever invest. Seems chancy.

In the long interim before Phoenix Point's arrival, I am playing the Final Modpack for the original UFO: Enemy Unknown. It really adds a lot of cool shit to the base game. A bit of item clutter but overall I think it's a significant improvement.

I've been playing the crap out of Smash Ultimate since release as well, but I don't play online. Your recent avatar change kind of gave that one away, though.

I've been taking a break over the past couple of days to play Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap. Fantastic remake of what was probably the best game for the Master System (which admittedly, probably isn't saying much). I always wondered why they left this game out of the Monster World collection from a few years back, but definitely not sorry to have it now.

I recently purchased and beat Hollow Knight... I think it might be one of my new favorite games!

This game is one of my favorites music-wise.

Oh yeah it's great. Ironically didn't pay attention to it as much while playing though. I'm just glad it had a creature log... I found it like 20 minutes after lamenting there being no creature log. A creature log is like...one of the top things a game needs to have to increase my enjoyment. I've completley filled it out with the exception of bosses that don't count for it.
