And the good lord sayeth: Come forth The Talk Thread XVIII!

This forum can be a scary place, 'cause we got lax rules: let's see your war face. Take a breath, and roll the dice, you might find out we're really nice.

Even a slight code modification in an engine can cost thousands, and moreso when developers have to accomodate their games to fit the exec's outrageous standards, this means we're getting only triple a bland releases and less memorable entries like psychonauts because the console market has it in their minds that everything must be bombastic and everything must be pushed to the limit.

This will hurt the next gen library of games badly, it simply will.

It's not how complex the code is, really, games could have the simplest code but still triumph if the game covers the first requirement of every game ever made ever: Being fun.

Kickstarter is only so useful, but it's already being taken over by actors and musicians with money to finance their pet projects or even worse using as a preorder service, combined with projects that never delivered I think it's going to be undermined.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Kickstarter has revolutionized the way in which ambitious creators get their projects off the ground. Now, you can help us get our idea off the ground and into space, for the best (and last) Kickstarter of all time. Help crowdfunding make crowddestroying a reality!

PROJECT FAQ
Q: So after the Earth blows up, what about you guys?
A: If all goes according to plan, the immense amount of energy channeled through the doomsday laser will also vaporize the station itself. What a bonus!

Q: But isn’t suicide wrong?
A: Agreed! But the worst thing about it is the grief it causes for those left behind. Sooo…!

Q: Why don’t you pay for this yourselves?
A: Sure, as syndicated TV stars and independent industrialists our combined net worth is well over $600 billion, but we’d rather not absorb all the risk of building a giant-space laser entirely by ourselves.

Q: So wait, is this a Death Star™?
A: No, the Death Star™ is a fictional weapon in some other universe, far, far away. We are talking about a very real tool built for the express purpose of destroying the planet Earth. The Death Star™ was a failure because it only destroyed one planet; if we destroy one planet, it’s a huge success!

Q: But wait! I don’t want to be blown up by a space laser!
A: Don’t be silly. No matter what you’re going to die someday, so it might as well be along with everyone else. Also that wasn’t a question.

Q: But–
A: Thanks for the questions, everyone!

so today in south london two men attacked and beheaded an ex-soldier and then hung around until the police arrived - at which point they attacked the police. it's some extremist muslim thing. i dunno, i think these guys are just delusional and would've taken any justification to lash out at the system.

I don't normally do this, but...

This is probably one of the best things I've seen for Skyrim.

Why the fuck did I write Orlando when I was thinking Oklahoma? Oh well.
How much was the damage? I hear there were a couple of houses destroyed.

Oh you know, around 30 deaths, lots of homes/property destroyed. Just a typical tornado natural disaster.

I don't know what you think of me, Mirak, but frankly, I don't mind.

I wish nothing but good will on you. You deserve it, as does everyone else. Just keep going, though, or you won't see the light at the end.
