Looks ridiculous, but that's the point. I could see this killing me with hysterical laughter if I was back in my smokin'/droppin' days :p

Oh man that looks hilarious...I see that as a source of a few kajillion youtube clips, seeing who can record the most hilarious situation in that game. Might have to get it myself...LOL.

I know, right? Workload yesterday wiped my memory of early access but tried it today. It's like Tony Hawk Pro Skater only.. ya know... yer a goat.

Half the hilarity is how un-polished it is. Climbing a ladder with what looks to be a flaccid neck/head? The occasional collision bug which results in a goat folded in half doing a belly spin on the floor of a pool? I'll go out on a limb here and say that the "flaws" in the game are intentional. They would send the normal retail game masses into a nerdrage but I say they are in the spirit of the goof.

Plus, only $9.99 USD.

Dude!
Thanks!
Game's a riot! Hop on the rocket yet and fly across the map onto the power lines?
Find the sumo wrestling ring?

No worries, bud :)

Accidentally found the rocket, have yet to find the Sumo ring, lol.

Have been causing mayhem when I discovered how to use the mechanical baseball pitcher thingie as a gun, and the axe (that's kinda tough). Also trying to figure how to make use of "lick" (that apparently tethers things to your mouth).

I find the game best used as a way to unwind after (or before) playing something more stressful or frustrating.

I'm now in need of the Sumo ring, now!

I'll get some time in on it over the weekend....I'm running a few long days in a row doing server migrations at a healthcare client. (you should see this server I built...6x drives RAID 10 just for the data volume....15krpm...she SCREAMS!)

Didn't notice axe...will keep an eye out.
The drained public pool with the tramp....and the slide above it...gotta get that timing down and figure out how to catch some air from that!

Primary game I'm into now....War Thunder....you should check it out. Free.

I tried War Thunder maybe 6 months ago and discovered I either a) can't fly for sh|t or b) I can't fly for sh|t.

Other games I don't do so bad but there's something about the game I am missing. More than likely that missing thing is practice, but just can't seem to translate my BF/DC skills into anything useful other than flying my arse into a position to be shot down.

I may have to fire it up again.. hopefully I am not so full of the suck I can find the fun, lol.
