  • Someone: "I'm not mad, what about the way I replied to you makes you think I'm mad?"

    The best lies are a variation of the truth.

    And then a 15-year-old kid, bored of school, decides to do a research project, and finds out what the lie is.

    or, lie all the time and with great exaggeration, so the next time you lie to cover a really bad fact, nobody will give it a thought.
    OR, lie around threads of truth, so the next time you're telling a story, people will listen until the end to figure out whether you're lying or not.
    and even then, you will still fool most of the common people, because they're already brainwashed most of the way.
    I think my new argument against people who decide to question the voracity of my character is just going to be to link them to my music playlist and challenge them to figure out who I am based on the music there.
    Facebook: "Let's host a video of someone comparing Cyberpunk 2077 to GTA5!"
    Me: "Why? They're both crap games for different reasons. What's the point of comparing crap to crap?"
    Most hype you'll get out of Cyberpunk 2077? Opening intro. Look man, Pacifica is still Pacifica. Yes, I let it play every single time.
    As a writer, one of the most annoying things I encounter is people who write "future technology" as if it were magic. "I don't have to explain how it works! It's so advanced it's like magic!". Uh, no, you need to explain how you're breaking the laws of reality. Write Fantasy otherwise.
    Don't forget, aspiring writers: Personality isn't what your characters do, it is WHY they do it.

    And how. Everyone needs to cook their meals but someone might add a little sprinkle of love and friendship while some will remove the bacteria from their means of nourishment to prevent their own death if you get what I'm trying to say.
    Why "Games Journalism" is a joke. A journalist for Cyberpunk 2077 admits to playing almost no part of the game at all, gives the game a 7/10 after not playing it, gets called out by people on YouTube... then turns off comments on their video.

    Well, it used to be, once upon a time, people were Games Journalists because they enjoyed playing games. In fact, they were gamers. Now, it's just what people do when CNN won't hire them. Or... I dunno, insert big name news outlet instead of CNN.

    I trust game "journalism" (and for that matter mainstream news) as much as I trust an article written by throwing darts at a dart board with random words written on it. Actually scratch that, the dart board might be accidentally correct, so I trust it more. :LZSwink:
    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?

    It was a lot of fun as a kid tho lol
    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?".

    Funny that you find your nemesis: crafting, not functional and some people find it fun :kaoswt2:

    @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

    @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.

    Some people are that thankful to have said playlist, maybe. I remember a few people subscribed to my old Youtube channel for that reason.

As soon as I'm able to get out of bed I'm probably gonna go so hyper from being too cooped up, and burn myself out into another awful flare. lol
It makes me feel proud whenever an RM game does well. Even though I had nothing to do with it.
Make a Game in MZ, Episode 11 is now live! This week, I'm going to show my process of turning a draft map into a finished map. (Which most people don't do, but I'm weird). Join in the chat and ask me anything:

Someone: "I'm not mad, what about the way I replied to you makes you think I'm mad?"

Gonna announce the OCC3 winners tomorrow. Though really you can just go look at the polls and tell :)
