It's easier to make a jump button and infinitely generated levels than to actually design something well

Making procedurally generated anything is a logistical nightmare, which is why 99% of them suck, because they think it will be easier to have the game make the levels instead of doing it themselves but it's not

I've been playing a lot of The Surge recently so I decided to make the med bay song in Guitar Hero because I can't get it out of my head. Now I can play it whenever I want! It was actually kind of a pain in the rear end to chart because it's very dense note-wise, there's hardly any breaks in the strumming at all during the song, so I mitigated that a bit by using hammer-ons for most of it. I think it turned out great, it's a lot of fun to play!

Multiplayer lol

People are starting to speculate that this is what the arg is leading up to, true actual multiplayer- so far it seems the arg is all about like, connecting to others and creating a new era of humanity and the old timey "what makes a person"-question-coming-from-a-computer cliche. Also a hamster is involved and it's the real star of the show. But personally I doubt it.

Crash1 was hard for how precise the jumping is in certain levels.

I loving hate High Road.

It's even more precise in the HD remake because they slow you down in the air after you bounce off something for some ungodly reason

edit: The Crash HD remake is good even in spite of that but man is that a really, really bad design decision. Especially because it's not how the original games worked, but they're still designed with the originals' physics in mind, coming from devs who were really pushing that they weren't changing anything????

The accusations have ranged from actual pedophilia to him just being a creepy "u spoke to me once so we should gently caress" dude in twitter DMs, and it turned out that the guy is pretty much just a desperate creep and that's it. The only really bad thing he did that we have demonstrable proof of is asking someone not to tell anyone about his lovely tactless failed flirting which is weird but after seeing the proof I can understand why because wow that's embarrassing

Edit; this is all it was:

The same thing happened with youtuber Tobuscus a while back where friends immediately cut ties with him, his sponsorships ran off, and his views skyrocketed temporarily and then dwindled. There were very serious sexual assault accusations, and then it came out that actually he's just kind of a lovely boyfriend and doesn't understand that having to convince your SO to try drugs with you means they don't really wanna do it.

ONE YEAR LATER posted:

Well when the women who are being asked to send nudes come out and say that it made them uncomfortable and they didn't say anything for fear of harassment and finally opening up felt like a relief, like a weight had been lifted, yes it's kinda bad that you don't get it. The majority of women who are sexually harassed don't get harassed by strangers, it's "friends" who do these things.

You just posted 1,000 words about feeling uncomfortable because of people around you making racist comments, you don't see a parallel between your situation and one in which a person is made uncomfortable by being asked for nudes by a friend?

To be fair, in those screenshots she is pretty clearly joking around with him about it while also poking at him for being a weirdo, so I can understand why someone might look at them and think it's really not that bad in the grand scheme

inferis posted:

The evidence of whatever polygon is looking into never got out. The screenshots being spread around are other women who noticed the big controversy and shared their own weird creepy interactions with him.

That is what they're looking into, it's the same thing.

edit: When they said they had suspended him and were looking into it, it was after the initial accusations but before any actual evidence of him being a creepo came to light. The former was a lot harsher sounding than the latter. Now that it has, it seems like that's all there is. If there's more, it's yet to be seen.

Video games work story: I played kickball with a bunch of people from my workplace once after work and it was fun, we drank beers on a middle school playground at like 9:00 PM and my legs hurt the next day from falling all over myself to kick that ball. Then we went to one of my co-workers' friends house and passed out after playing Rock Band 3.

To be fair it's a pretty big part of the multiplayer and an incentive to play, so it being busted by pairing you against your same team all the time is kinda important. Maybe not for news coverage but it's a nintendo game and they're really loving popular so they make news for minor things

I assumed Callie and Marie being basically the same character was the joke, and probably done to get around people picking a fav character automatically to win ninty's fun little week to week stuff.

edit: And like, it's not really that important to be able to say "I picked Pearl because I like mayonnaise" instead of "I picked Pearl because I like Pearl", but you'd think they would have the foresight to try and make it turn out like the former if they're gonna do that kinda stuff.

Okay sorry for bringing up the Nick Robinson bs again but can someone directly link me to pictures of the bad dms he did? Because the one that was linked a couple times only seems to be 2 pictures and says nothing like 'send nudes' or 'don't tell anyone about this'

I don't doubt he's been lovely but I actually don't understand where people are getting that particular stuff from

The ones I posted, slightly more here:



Are all that has actually come of it so far (edit: There was one more tweet with a different screencap but it was basically just this again). The same person who posted these is the one that he asked not to say anything about it, or so she said before she made her twitter private. There's no evidence he actually said that but I believe it given how embarrassing this is.

Too many people use skepticism as an excuse for withholding empathy. You can be skeptical while also being empathetic just in case, because I mean worst case scenario you were wrong to feel bad for the people involved and that doesn't really hurt anything. But it's not something you see often.

He was being accused of everything but murder yesterday with no one giving details. It's hosed up people's private business had to get trotted out in the street so everyone could gauge the amount of outrage they should be feeling. Everybody glad you know now? Should we see what pictures she sent him? Should we dissect the history of his fakku account?

See I was under the impression people other than her were tweeting about it which forced her to be open about it which I don't know if she was comfortable with being public about it. I haven't seen her twitter at all cause I don't have an account.

Well, nobody should be coerced into giving away their information to the public, and it's not very reasonable to expect them to want to. I was just saying that there's nothing wrong with wanting to see something conclusive so that you can make informed decisions about how to feel.

babypolis posted:

sounds to me like facebook is vastly better for that than twitter, considering it doesnt have the asinine character limitation or the possibility of being harassed by tons of people at once, or being doxxed and having your life destroyed because you said something people dont like

I mean they seem pretty much the same in that way to me, with the exception that you have to be friends with somebody to do tons of stuff on Facebook which doesn't have an equivalent requirement on Twitter. Either way Facebook is better for keeping up with people you know in real life imo
