I believe their plan is to continue to slide backwards, until they hit negative development and eventually overflow to a completed game.

I don't think that black ship has any other pictures or models of it. I know they made a model of the super old concept art of that thing, but I don't remember it actually having any details or anything in terms of texture.


I think :gary: probably saw this as pretty low risk. Like, you go get paid a hojillion dollars to be in some filthy Crobbitses' game, and there's three outcomes:

It comes out and it's terrible - nobody making casting decisions is gonna give a poo poo when they're looking to hire Oldman. He might get negative press in the gaming industry but who gives a gently caress.

It doesn't come out at all - kinda same deal.

It comes out and it's amazing - this one's the only one where anybody outside videogame-land is even going to notice.

Based on what they showed, we can safely discount option three.

I get the feeling that a lot of redditors are really investing their ego into this and take someone making fun of something they love as a personal threat. Also they post on a place where anyone who criticizes them gets downvoted so it makes them more sure that they're "right." As opposed to SA where everyone shits on everyone so you either learn to deal with it or leave.

I highly recommend getting poo poo on/making GBS threads on everyone. It's good.

Holy poo poo they can't even print things without loving it up - what did they do? Build a new loving office complex to house their own printing machines and some how still gently caress it up that they can't cope with printing a few thousand copies of something? How many hundred thousand of what are basically laminated business cards would they have to loving order to overwhelm a printing facility? gently caress off that's too dumb.

When you are preaching to the whale pond why not go with what works? Create an artificial sense of scarcity and watch the :10bux: roll in.

A state's Attorney General is the top lawyer for the state, is legal representative of all the state's citizens collectively, and is appointed by the Governor.

Edit: Correction, they are either popularly elected or appointed by the governor, the state legislature, or the state supreme court. 43 states elect them, one of which is California.

It's what they tried to print on them, but they picked a pretty poor word to convey the meaning so it came out more as “loyal until we quit/stop/cease”.

Loyalty until they quit and abscond with the rest of the money sounds pretty accurate.

Plus, is there really anything wrong with being videotaped being tickled by somone? It's not a crime, it's not indecency, it's not an indictment of her character or fitness, it's just weird and funny.

I don't think anyone cares about the actual tickling but it fleshes out where this team of bungling scammers comes from in hilarious fashion. Chris, the washed up game developer/director/car salesman who met his wife through a tickle fetish production company. Sandi, one of the multitude of migrants who wash up on the shores of LA to try and make it big, only to end up marrying some has-been autist after making a few commercials and working as a softcore pornstar. Ortwin, the hack lawyer/porn producer with shady business connections.

Then they all team up to fleece nerds out of over one hundred million dollars while displaying such staggering incompetence that you can only laugh. This really should be a movie after it all burns down.

Well I don't go into the discord chat so instead of what you said it's more of a "I don't give a gently caress about what happened somewhere else what are you even whining about it here for?"

Because I said the discussion was creepy? Since all the people posting here about it was creepy enough but there is a whole other creepy section you don't know about?


So then shut the gently caress up telling me that I don't know what I'm talking about if you don't even know half the discussion that's taking place?

Why is it that everything that Sandi and Chris and Ben and Batgirl do everyone laughs at and seems to enjoy, but the content posted by your site founder nobody is laughing at now. Nobody plays the video game of the subform leader, but loves to hate the game that Derek hates he can't be known for.

It's really frustrating to me to love something so pure and to see the most hateful hypocritical people attempt to destroy it with insult and complaints to the authorities. Maybe somebody should make an infographic on how to call the authorities to protect children. Surprised if there isn't one already because SomethingAwful like to hate on Reddit. But look now at what the dear leader is up to!

Actually most of us probably don't give a gently caress because Lowtax's life is a well documented rolling car fire.

You however are aggressively unfunny which is a far greater crime.

Unless I'm misunderstanding you, the article mentions they do have shaping of some form (bolding mine):

You can and should make it so a single client can't open infinite connections or eat more than a small slice of your total bandwidth. It should have been detected as an attack and killed since that's what it basically was.
