Hey the PS1 GitS game wasn't too terrible! (I actually really enjoyed it.)

Having only watched the film at the time I didn't understand what the gently caress those little red robots were or why I should care but other than that yeah, fun little game.

Any time you see the words "Procedurally generated" you can just mentally sub in "Boring and really loving generic" and be completely right 99.99% of the time.

(I'm not actually certain of a procedurally generated system that results in cool and interesting stuff but I'm sure at least one must be out there somewhere).

I wanted to argue with this but I literally couldn't think of a single one. Closest is stuff like FTL but that's really just 'open the door and see which designed encounter you get'.

wyoak posted:

FTL's encounters aren't designed (beyond the boss), there's a random set of weapons/defenses/etc that opponents draw from which fits the definition of procedurally generated pretty well. Roguelikes use procedural generation if you're into that sort of thing. Left 4 Dead was pretty fun. The Civ series has always used it well, same with XCom. But yeah the core gameplay has to be fun.

I was thinking more in terms of the nature of encounters rather than the badguys themselves, i.e 'you meet a bandit!' 'You meet some space poors who want money' ect ect but you're not wrong. There's the argument that that's just a veneer of randomisation within a fairly strict set of rules (such as no more than 2 shields in the starting system) but I guess that depends on where you draw the line.

I just looked up LoD tactics in the android store and most of the top reviews are all saying 'This game is fun but wtf you have to pay for it?!'

D_Smart call the dad.

I'm no internet lawyer but if this kid is actually opening his arsehole up for a law-loving then calling the dad would actually be the cool option.

Because we all know that just ignoring it isn't a possibility given the parties in question.

Reddit, what are some red flags you saw but ignored? Do you regret that decision? posted:
When you're the only one trying to repair a relationship and they've obviously cashed out.

When someone has wronged you and doesn't do anything to make up for it or try and fix things.

When someone lies and misleads you and leads you on.

When you already turned your back on them because they weren't there for you, but you give it another go because you love them.

When this has all happened before but each time you think it will be different, that they'll be different.

When you let all this happen because you don't have anyone else.

People will die over this game.

I wonder though, if Sargent Smarty wasn't on the scene would all this pent up anger over the total lack of progress be getting directed towards Chris by now?

Having an easy hate figure is probably helping keep the faithful in their church for further self-owning after all.

I'm actually with Derek on the whole 'having a physical disability isn't an excuse for being an online shitler' thing. I'm not sure how I feel about his actual reaction, but the thought process leading up to it is pretty cool in a 'treating people like people despite their disabilities' kind of way.

I think even Octopode has a faint contempt for the vocal Star Citizen fanbase now, the active members become far more extreme since they feel they are under attack. Not helped obviously by terrible moderation on RSI and that horrible Star Citizen reddit.

Goonfear was still at max hysteria even when everyone here was still excited for the game so I'm thinking that some people are just special. Raging autists and space games do go hand in hand I guess.
