And when are you gonna press both buttons on the same side at the same time? Holding shield plus pressing parry, maybe.

If I had to do that I'd expect the game to do some seriously impressive poo poo in response.

Very yes. Because all the other combinations were also in use, so you'd regularly throw your gun, spin awkwardly, etc.
It was amazingly poorly designed.

It unlocks your mech's reactors limiter giving you nigh unlimited energy for flying around and shooting energy weapons for a short period of time, then you are completely helpless for the equivalent of an eternity because if you didnt win, youre dead.

Wait actually no thats not it.
It drops off all extension parts, so you can do a cool anime armor purge

Spintires is best with friends, and when you're all role-playing drunken Soviet-era truck drivers. Also when you are all as drunk as you imagine Soviet-era truck drivers in rural Russia could be.


I played it once while sober and alone and it was one of the most unpleasant and boring gaming experiences I've had.

I can only assume that wild physics like that is a result of the limited calculations the computer can make with regards to kinetic energy and energy transfer. At some point it isnít coded to transfer any/enough/all energy from on thing to the other (like the ground or tree) on top of the fact that there isnít an energy loss equation built in so then the physics calculations become an echo chamber and maybe become exponentially worse until a 20 ton truck flops around like a feather and bounces off of trees.

No?

Nah, generally physics system freak outs like that are due to models clipping into one another. The collision system attempts to separate them by imparting force in a direction to one of the objects. This force is then applied but the objects don't separate because they're still connected or the collision system models another collision, which reduces the force on one, imparting it to the other object so now they're moving together.

Next time physics calculations are done the same thing happens and you end up getting huge phantom forces that make the physics object go batshit crazy like that.

And then it's going fast enough to clip into something else and then WHOOPS and it applies more force and keeps poo poo going.

Yep. I forgot about how unity engine games accurately calculate the standard model, but don't take into account the 8th dimension, so some weird collision can happen as it works it's way up the fields and super symmetry isn't maintained.

Another thing that can cause problems is when two things are connected by a joint but they also intersect each other. The physics system will attempt to push one of the objects out so they aren't colliding, but the movement of that object imparts force on the object it's connected to, oftentimes retaining the collision.

This clip is an example of intentional abuse of similar physics glitches. The player (PJ DiCesare, a fairly well-known speedrunner and breaker of games) made a "vehicle" that's a loop of four components connected by flexible joints. It has no motive force -- no engines, sails, etc., but after being allowed to exist for a bit, it builds up a feedback loop between its components and starts to spin like mad. He uses this to complete a "long jump" challenge where you have to move the protagonist as far as possible -- not end-to-end, but total movement even if it backtracks. He just jumps off the end of the skijump and vibrates for awhile.

Iím late for controller chat, but the real mystery is why the PS controller has a pink color for the square button rather than yellow, which would make more sense next to the other colors and also make the buttons match the original PS1 logoís color scheme, which was RGBY.

Does Kotaku have some kind of obsession with finding the most inappropriate header images for their articles or something because jeez

e: To add more content to my post, as funny as that particular bug is, the patch also breaks the game in various ways for people, a bunch of popular mods need updating and the patch has apparently ruined people's saves and caused other serious issues. EA rushed this one out after already delaying it by a day and it's such a loving joke for a company that's been making Sims games for over 20 years now. They should've delayed the expansion pack this patch was for to avoid this exact scenario, but of course profits are more important so gently caress it, we'll take the bad rep and hopefully game news sites will just meme about burning piss instead of actually calling us out.

There was about a month where fruit above the base quality would just disappear from your inventory because the game wouldnít correctly fill out fruit quality when you loaded. It looked fine, but as soon as you loaded a second time, it would be gone. The workaround was to move every stack of fruit from one type of inventory to another and back every time you loaded or switched maps. It made farming miserable for a while, and farming is one of the best ways to make money.

It also affected death flowers, which are essential in keeping sims alive and bringing dead sims back, and also can control a simís age. If you have Seasons, you only get 1-2 death flowers per plant per day, so it could take ages to build up a supply of them.
