  • Plague Inc has recently been banned in China. Is it linked with the COVID-19 outbreak, or is it purely conicidence? I have no idea.

    Yeah, supposedly because there is a resemblance between the cartoon and president Xi, and some joker made side by side comparisons as a meme. I'm not saying I think Corona will end up being "Virus X" or whatever, but I fully expect it to be worse than we think simply because of how heavy-handed the Chinese government have been with stifling the flow of information and obfuscating.

    That being said I don't mean to fear-monger. I think most likely they just shut down their updates when it broke quarantine so that fears of the virus wouldn't scare off trade and damage their economy, and our governments who have constantly covered for them likely did so because spreading a global pandemic was preferable to interrupting trade for them as well.

    Had a dream in which I couldn't get anything done because a giant rat kept wanting my attention. xD

    Dreams are weird. I had one I was turned into a spider. I woke up before I got to see how that turned out.

    I made a mini-game a long time ago, like the shooting ducks game, where you used a bowling ball / rock to bowl spiders. Then I had to change it to rats because Amanda liked spiders. Or the other way around.
    Helldivers is so much fun!

    Yes. Yes it is. A bit stressful to input the strategem commands and with friendly fire on, but a fun challenge. Even though I've mostly used the laser-shotgun thing with friends, I'd wanna try other weapons by myself, if I had the game. The plasma pistol from one of the DLCs sounds up my alley.

    @RachelTheSeeker I'm usoing the laser shotgun thing too!. xD It's the easiest gun to use, I just end up without ammo when using the other guns. lol. I'm enjoying using that, the flamethrower, and a flamethrower pistol.
    French folk trying to pronounce English words. I loved how the man pronounced squirrel as 'square friend'.
    Seems like people have stopped looking both ways before crossing the road nowadays. Blindly walking out into a into a road only ends in disaster.
    Apparently, it's illegal to be drunk on licensed premises: pubs, etc. It's illegal for keepers of public houses to permit drunkenness and disorderly conduct. lol.
    Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders is finally being ported to PC. I loved playing that game on the original Xbox.
    I think I still prefer RPG Maker over Dreams. Been playing around with it, and the controls are really the biggest flaw for me.

    Lack of dimensions, as well as simplicity, is probably why I stuck with RPG Maker. I've tried quite a few easy to use game makers now, and only one even comes close to being as easy to understand as RPG Maker - SMILE Game Builder. With RPG maker, I know how to use it, and I know how to make it do things I want it to do; and there's no annoying camera manipulation. lol.

    That's fair, I too look at other engines. And I'm not going to lie I look at Unity with envious eyes a lot.... a whole lot. But having already built so many systems in RM, really what keeps me here is I'm not very far off of my goal. Then I have the systems already built for future games.

    I do hate being reliant on very specific plugins though whose authors are gone from the scene though. Feels like I'm building a house of cards. So that does keep me looking and contemplating other engines. I'm almost certain that if I switch it's going to be Unity. It's built in systems eliminate the need for Yanfly Self Variables, QMovement, QSprite, and SRD HUD Maker just to name a few big ones.
    Please don't create long, boring cutscenes in which characters do nothing but stand around talking.
    Another unhelpful visit to my useless psychiatrist. The same old song and dance every couple of months. No solutions. Nothing. Why do I bother...

    Hang in there man, do anything that will distract you and influence you in a positive way. Play games or work on your projects, go out and take a nice walk, eat something nice and for the love of god please change that useless psychiatrist.

    a pill can never (and will never) be able to pick up that noisy neighbor and fling them to another county.
    you can't possibly take a pill, to treat a condition, that the doctor doesn't know about, when common sense dictates that you don't tell them about them, when common sense establishes that they can't possibly do anything *about* them.

    if you tell a psychiatrist "this person is bothering me", they'll tell you "ok, so stop meeting that person!"
    there's no pill that can deal with *people*.
    psychiatric conditions are *environmental* in nature (especially *social* in nature), not *biological*
    I wish there was a search function, or at least a filter, for my purchases. It's so tedious clicking on every order to see if it contains the product I'm looking for.
    So, for whatever reason, I wondered if a Donald Trump body pillow existed. Yes, yes it does. Seems you can pretty much find anything online. xD
    Who'd have thought creating a water dripping animation would be so satisfying. xD
    If they ever make a sequel to Vampyr, I really hope they don't focus so much on combat. I want more social manipulation via nomming people!

    If you follow her around after eating the doctor, you can see her sometimes find a quiet room to cry in. She becomes a doctor, but she also becomes depressed. I want a game filled with stuff like that, not the annoying bosses and constant combat in the streets. Oh and no forced romances either.

    I read that as more social interaction via mooning people, and was like what kind of game is this? I think I need more sleep.

    @bgillisp I'm sure you'll get interaction that way... Social or A-social xD
    I like it whenever I hear someone pronounce yoghurt as yo-ghurt. That emphasis on the yo part makes me smile.
    Seems like people aren't too impressed by Warcraft 3: Reforged.

    @Dalph I remember you saying you were really looking forward to playing Reforged. Must suck to get such a broken, half-arsed product in the end. :(

    Sadly I'm very disappointed, yes. Warcraft 3 was part of my childhood and it pisses me off how they ruined it, in its current state the game is a royal mess.

    The more I age the more I realize that indie game developers are the future, these greedy AAA companies all deserve to fail.
    Why do I keep trying to play RTSes? I suck at them, and they do nothing but frustrate me. Guess I'm a glutton for punishment. xD
    Been watching videos about IRS phone scammers. Some really scummy people in the world.

    I'm from Canada and we also have those scams over here.

    And yes, I also enjoy watching videos of people wasting the scammer's time on youtube haha.

    A thing to take into consideration is that some of the scammers come from poor countries and those scams may be one of the only ways they have to make money and feed their family (there was one scammer that had a talk with a youtuber that caught him). I'm sure they could find other jobs, and I'm aware that being in a hard situation doesn't justify a wrong, but it just shows that the situation isn't black and white.

    I would still condemn the scammer and think of him as dishonest, but at the very least I won't assume that he's pure evil and a psychopath that only wants to scam us for fun and egotistical personal gain.

So, uh, has anyone tried buying any resources from KokoroReflections? Because I've been looking for a 'buy' button on the site for like 10 minutes now and can't find one.
Any also thought it's too cringy to put the word "and you" in your credit as a special thanks?
Cause that's what I thought...
Everyone in the US right now: Please stay safe.
