Thread Twin Peaks : 30 years of mystery finally explained
As someone who knows Tomm Huelett in real life and saw in person the kind of vitriol and hate thrown his way, even as far as shouting slurs towards him and his wife at E3 of all places, I find it incredibly disheartening and frustrating that people allow these fuckheads to spread their gatekeeping fan theories so freely here. I understand one of them apologized, but they knew what was going on, going down and what they influenced as it happened with glee. And this was even after several attempts from Tomm to reach out and treat them with the respect they never deserved in the first place.

Thread Digital Foundry - Ion Fury - Every Console Tested - How An Ancient Engine Stresses Current-Gen CPUs
John is doing well and just taking the necessary steps away from here that is for the best. I wouldn't expect either him or I to post anything here related to future DF Retro projects we do together and the like however since I will also be stepping away since I haven't really been enjoying reading forums much in the last few years and stuff like this just cements that it's better to focus on work and family.

Thread Id Software addresses the controversy regarding DOOM Eternal's OST release
How is Bethesda "wrong" here? They clearly stated the amount of time to him, even extended it while keeping his bonus intact and he still didn't deliver. There are no both sides on this particular issue. Gordon didn't deliver to terms he agreed to multiple times. Also regarding people bringing up "Why wasn't he under contract", it is fairly normal that game musicians work for hire and on short term agreements and handshake deals. While it's not recommended as you can clearly tell from this situation, as someone who worked a long time in video game music it's not uncommon and Bethesda didn't do anything really out of the ordinary there.

Thread Digital Foundry Retro: Bubsy
That is happening sometime, but it's gonna require a lot of transport and careful packing. I already caused a security alarm crisis at the airport transporting the CD-i Peacekeeper gun to his place. Also, a video game music centered episode would be fun on a off week, focusing on underappreciated composers and highlighting their work.

Thread TMNT x Justice League: Out Now
Is this a MUGEN based fighter? It clearly uses sprite rips from Justice League Task Force and TMNTTF and everything looks a bit stretched and mangled... though maybe thats just cause they rendered the video to widescreen? I dunno, but these videos don't really give a good first impression as hardcore TMNT/fighting game fan.

Thread Era please recommend awesome YouTube food-related shows
Probably not an original pick, but I been really enjoying and successfully replicated recipes and videos from Chinese Cooking Demystified. They explain the process and techniques well, and seem like nice ol' folks. I'm not a health nut though, and I see people always complain that they use too much oil and whatever.

Thread Panzer Dragoon avaliable NOW ($24.99, Switch timed exclusive)
As a huge fan of the series, I am pretty let down by this release. The first stage was such a spectacle in the original, and beautifully underlined by that sweet score, and this game just feels so flat and cheap out the gate. I am getting some frame dips when around the rocky areas and on some enemy patterns as well. And WHAT is up with the shoulder button delay?! The colors being off is the biggest turn off here though. That water should sparkle, shine and just ooze atmosphere, color reflection and blue blue skies. Instead it just looks like my local river from inside my window.

Thread Trials of Mana PS4/Switch/PC (2020) and Mana Collection Switch announced
As someone who has worked with Kikuta several times and have remained friends for over a decade now, Kikuta just doesn't care about fame or success as such. He sees himself as an artist, not just in music but illustration, design, clothes, you name it. He feels more at home in the independent comic market scene than mainstream gaming. That being said, he's a fantastic composer, and not at all shy. He just walks to the beat of his own drum and literally does what comes to mind without much of a thought if it will be successful or not. In the last few years he's come to realize how much his music has meant to overseas fans though so he's been more accepting and focused on that.

Thread Castlevania Season 3 | OT | Out now! (Mark spoilers for two weeks)
I'm a bit confused by people saying the relationship between Trevor and Sypha was a surprise or took them off guard... Wasn't it shown and stated clearly at the end of Season 2 that they were falling for one another and beginning a relationship when on the wagon after the fight with Dracula? I felt like they were quite natural and the relationship was handled fairly well with the right amount of playfulness and differences you'd find yourself in after a few month dating. I know at least my wife and I fought night demons together one month into our relationship, or drunk farmers in the weekend as we call them here in Norway.

Thread DF Retro Play: Batman Forever PC. It's a let's play episode, not the regular tech analysis ep.
After we recorded this video, I actually sat down to play the other versions (to capture the comparison footage) and came to realize that the Mega Drive version, especially when played with the 6 button pad, is not that bad. In fact I had a bit of fun with it.Don't give him ideas, I already get the cold sweats when he invites me over to "have fun and play games".

Thread Love is Blind on Netflix is pure fuckery
Is it just me or did they purposely make Jessica look waaaaayyy older via makeup just to drive home that point? She is the same age as me but I look like young Asterix compared to her. It felt like the show wanted her to be 45 rather than 34 honestly.
