  • Microsoft: Hey, let's waste money advertising the Xbox Series X when nobody has any in stock, we don't seem to be making more, we aren't taking preorders and you can't get on a waiting list. BEST. IDEA. EVER.

    People just need to learn a little self-restraint. If people weren't so rabid to have the "latest and greatest" immediately then this whole scalping thing wouldn't work, the idiots who botted all the consoles would be stuck with them until they dropped the price back down to what they paid Sony/Microsoft for them.

    People's inability to delay gratification is what opens the market up to such exploitation in the first place. This kind of rabid hype is why large swaths of the industry are simultaneously quasi-monopolistic and in constant decay in concurrent fashion.

    "Scalping" only works because of artificial shortages. When there are no shortages, artificial or otherwise, there's nothing to scalp. I got an Xbox One without issue and had it preordered almost a year in advance (Day One version, even, which was a limited run). There was no preorder list to get on this time, nor a waiting list. Just a, "hey, every store gets a couple, and hope you get lucky!", which is silly.
    EA: "Kids are buying currency, not using money to gamble. It shouldn't be illegal!"
    Me: "So... kids should be allowed into casinos to buy poker chips and not spend them at the blackjack table? Pretty sure, even buying currency used to gamble is illegal for children."

    How...how many mental gymnastics does it require to pretend that a virtual wallet of points spendable only on lootboxes constitutes a literal currency in the first place? Forget the moralizing and just make sense of that first, because it doesn't make any sense.

    where is that money coming from, that the kids are using to buy whatever thing?
    forget the object, follow the money chain... where does it come from?
    if the provider of that money agrees with the final administration of said money, where's the problem?

    I'm always sort of amused when people use a word incorrectly and then use the argument "language is always evolving" rather than admit that them and their tiny group of friends use the word wrong while everyone else uses it correctly.
    What you believe is not your personality or a part of your personality. WHY you believe it, though? THAT IS your personality.
    There are 37 issues with this game. 10/10 Perfect Game. Would justify my own purchase (waste of $60) again.
    Devs spend too much time worrying about "is this functional?" rather than testing for "is this fun?".

    @BK-tdm the problem with crafting is that it's... not actually fun. It simulates having an actual job. So, you know, for kids who don't have their entire lives revolve around "grindy work", grindy systems are "fun" for them. Anyone who is an adult... Yeah, we don't want to spend our "off time" doing what we did in our "work time" without getting paid for it.
    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.
    Philosophus Vagus
    Philosophus Vagus
    @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.

    Lately, I've taken to smashing random nouns/verbs together as insults. It's sort of amusing how many people don't really know how to respond to that. You bottle shaker!

    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 think the debate today definition is different than acient Greek. I think the debate today is using for cross-examine and win at any costs. Yeah, sometimes I forget to just not saying anything. The favorable words are only allowed to say and anything negative is conspiracy theories lol.

    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 did a bit of a remake on one of the maps, also I made a particle for jumping into the portal, and one for traveling through the portal. I'll probably add more sparkles later to embellish it. :LZSwink:
Polished the animation and added details :kaojoy:

What do you think about the Wood Bridge inside of Volcano?
Yet another gaming question, i'm currently playing Last of Us 2 and want to get another game to play next but can't decide between Ghost of Tsushima, Miles Morales & Jedi Fallen Order. After the latest mandalorian i AM on a star wars kick, but i also LOVED the last spiderman game that prequels Miles Morales. Ghost of Tsushima is the bottom of my list but i heard it was AWESOME. Just want a good story & fun gameplay.
