  • Anyone else find it amusing that people watch videos of tragedy and then try to take the "moral high ground" by having sympathy for the victims? Dude, you watched the tragedy for the same reason everyone else. People being injured is an instinctive human curiosity.

    I dont know if I would say I find it amusing. It's true that I've been curious about that sort of thing, but I dont really see anything wrong just with the curiosity itself. I imagine if it were not for curiosity, other misfortune might befall the victim. What if we just kept on going by without checking to see if someone might still be alive? I think that might be the real failing.

    ... But just watching someones misery for some ghoulish thrill? I cant recall ever experiencing this, nor do I wish too. :<

    There's a difference in seeing an accident and and thinking, "I should stop to help" and seeing one and going, "what is going on?". One comes from a place of legitimate kindness. The other a place of morbid curiosity. I find it amusing that people who stop to watch out of morbid curiosity try to take the "high ground" by later saying that it's a tragedy and we should feel sorry for them.
    If you get everything you want, when you want it, it kills your creativity. If you never get anything you want, you're forced to be creative with what you have.

    Amazon, why you be sold out of Xbox Series X? :( I wanted to preorder one.

    @KakonComp a lot of clever but unscrupulous people bought out dozens of consoles since there was no limit and artificially created scarcity...you can find these consoles for sale on Ebay for like a grand right now if you really want one, because people will pay it. This is why you limit how many consoles individuals can purchase if you don't want these shenanigans.

    I was fortunate enough to win an extra console off of a streamer who ended up with an extra one during the initial scarcity on accident and chose to raffle it off to his viewers rather than send it back. Wasn't even planning to buy a next gen console, funny how life works sometimes.

    I mean, I'd love to have one on launch day, but if I can't, I still want one in time for the next Halo (even if I'm pretty sure it will be garbage). I'd just like to be able to preorder one for whenever they're in stock or whatever.
    It is weird that I get subscribers on YouTube when I produce no content except adding to my "favorite music" playlist, or commenting on videos.

    I don't mind grinding too much nor that the world levels with you. I hear that it is quite humurous which I also look forward to.
    A nice story is always something that can win me over. The one thing I fear most, is that the gameplay might be too boring - or rather - a 1:1 copy from pokemon with no new mechanics.
    Tai_MT

    Um... I don't know. Combat feels sort of dull, though it does "last longer" in most cases. Level ups grant far less power than they do in Pokemon (each level, so far, has only granted me 1 Attack and 1 Defense for basically all my mons). It does seem to rely heavily on "super effective" as well as "critical hits". States are slightly more powerful, but more difficult to inflict too.
    Tai_MT

    On the up-side, however, the "catch mechanics" are a lot better and more well-thought out. There are items which give you "passive buffs" to capturing specific elements of mons, you can feed mons (with each mon having 3 food they like and all others they hate), and specific type capturing devices to increase odds. Not just "weaken and throw" now. Lots of factors involved.
    I sometimes wonder how many people have thought "I won the argument!" when I walk away and feel pretty good about themselves.

    I still confusing with the new directory of the day. Disagree is meaning the slander, libel, and sedition now. I hear all of you are clear if someone get emotional during so call debate, we should stop and ask Are you still leaning? If that person doesn't leaning anything, it is clear time to go the bed or get your followers to help you attack that person's credibility or moral character.
    I can tolerate ignorance. I can tolerate stupidity to an extent. I CANNOT tolerate INCOMPETENCE. I just can't. If you can't grasp the basics of something, you shouldn't be paid like you're a professional in it.

    This is especially true for drivers. Seriously, if you can't control your own car, get off the public roads before you kill someone. Gets old seeing people take turns really wide when there's no way their vehicle needs to.
    If you need an endorsement to play a game... Satisfactory is so enjoyable to me, that it's one of the few games I'm enjoying without achievements.

    I've played Satisfactory so much. I used to struggle to run the game on very low at like 15-20fps with my laptop but after I built my new desktop from scratch and running everything on the highest setting it was like a whole new experience.
    I wish Satisfacory ran a lot better than 15-25 frames a second on my computer.
    Wow, lots of RPG Maker MV stuff on sale on Steam for 50%-75% off. Steam, why you not tell me?!
    kako05
    STEAM RPG maker mv is bugged. It'll ruin your project database and make your project unusable resulting in project crashing a lot, database loading 5x-10x longer. My guess its something to do with how steam saves data. It's possible to recreate by following a few steps, copy a project and open it. Both copy and original are busted. Not a problem with Degica version. Avoid steam release.

    I'm not using the Steam Release (I buy directly from this website when possible). But, all the DLC is pretty cheap right now, which is nuts. Usually Steam sends me an e-mail when stuff on my wishlist is on sale.

    Yeah. Cheap assets are pretty nice.

    It is several dozen posts I've made on the subject. Many of the core tenants haven't changed over the years, but I've refined some of them. It might be worth looking at each individual post I've made in the topics as well as reading Wavelengths replies to me to see how the discussions went.
    I am looking forward to the day that all "loot boxes" are classified as "gambling" and developers can no longer put them in their games if they want to make money.

    We should make sure to consider trading cards, gacha capsules, and of course randomized assortments of flavors in candy packages to be gambling as well!

    Because we all know that just like the loot you get from loot boxes, some of it is valuable (red flavor, green flavor) and some of it isn't (purple flavor).

    That honestly wouldn't bother me at all. The UK itself is taking steps to get Loot Boxes labeled and regulated as "gambling" now though. Which is FANTASTIC. The only reason Loot Boxes ever existed to begin with is because some people discovered that they found a way to legalize gambling for children.

    I dont think gambling is the right word for it when it comes to ingame loot boxes, but I still agree that its problematic.
    "Appeal to Popularity" arguments are always amusing. Not sure why people make them anymore. They're admissions that marketing was good, but the product was crap.

    @Tai_MT, isn't the ad populum fallacy used for the political rallies? But some listeners to use those political rallies choose to believe these as the facts. Because you can search for information in the internet.

    @Kupotepo It's used fairly frequently in the video game industry as well, which is where I see it most often. "X game is great because look at how many sales it has!". "X game is great because look at how many positive reviews it has!". If you are appealing to popularity as an argument, you've already lost.

    @Tai_MT, that is true in the marketing. I see the new AAA games released. I see people like it and buy it, despite how much I do not like that genre. That is true the game industries are to show positive aspects of their games.

    I basically automated construction of Logistic and Construction Robots and then assigned them a complete overhaul of my entire factory as well as set up new supply lines... and then just had to wait for several rocket launches. Came back to 3 supply lines run dry... and about 5000 of each bot roaming around. :D Good times.

    I was terrible at managing my facotry in that game. Always ended up with conveyor belts filled with materials, and nothing moving.

    A lot of the game is tearing your factory down over and over again and reworking it as you get improved tech and supply lines change. You also eventually gain enough basic knowledge that it's easy to figure out why things aren't moving or why they are full, and you know how to fix those issues. I look at it as beneficial when all my belts are 100% full at all times.

Welp, ended up at the hospital with the oldest so mebbe might make the game jam's deadline. Maybe not. Regardless, really digging MZ.
I had lots of fun! Kids loved me, and some took pictures. Unfortunately, the videos didn't send... but you'll see Chica in action when I do a trailer for Fandom Scouts!

Hi
Thanks for your review.
I was checking the trailer for details and as the woman shut the door at the exact moment the song I was hearing said "you slim the door" and I couldn't resist to add it there. :D And I used this idea one more time on another scene.
Just doing some tileset tinkering again...
