Blue,

There's an Amex credit card ad that autoplays at ear-splitting volume showing today. (on the side banner). (Edit: It may have been the greenies dental chews ad, as that now just played...)

Can you see if you can at least get the damn thing not to autoplay? I'd like to enjoy my ear drums a little longer.

News Comments > Greg Zeschuk Returns to Games
4. Re: Greg Zeschuk Returns to Games Feb 19, 2015, 12:38 Creston
 
Eh, it sounds interesting enough. I know several parents who are constantly lamenting that their kids are only ever interested in sitting in front of either the TV, or are playing games on a tablet, or on a console, etc. (I never make the obvious comment that said parents trained their kids to do so, but whatever.)

Playing outside simply isn't as cool as playing Minecraft. This isn't that hard to figure out. I much prefer playing games on my PC to just kind of 'being outside' (exception: playing with my dogs outside is awesome, and I can't wait for spring to start again), so I understand why kids would rather play games too.

So any kind of effort to make being outside more exciting for kids, even if it comes with having to strap a lens in front of their face (seeing as how it's AR) seems interesting. Whether it'd ever work, who knows, but it's not that hard to see someone programming MS's hololens for that exact purpose.

unspecified this on unspecified that running unspecified whatever. Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and take that with a fairly large bag of salt.

Unless a game was specifically coded to take advantage of DX12, it won't even make any difference, right? I'll get excited about it in 2019 when some games may finally use it.

saying he can "really relate" to some of the nasty accusations this has involved

You mean like when you said, "Yeah, DF9 (?) isn't making any more money, so we're just not going to work on it anymore, fuck you who donated to it."

I would hope you can relate to it. The big difference is that PM has a much longer history of lying, and for you it was hopefully a one-off.

I would heartily recommend not siding with PM too heavily, nor following down that poorly trodden path.

The crazy cat guy agrees. I've spending upwards of $500+ a month right now to keep one of mine going. But she's not in pain, and is about 90% of her usual self (other than sleeping a bit more). On the surface, that's nuts...but when it's one of yours...we'll quit when she's ready to quit, and not before.

Yeah, I totally get that. I've probably spent in excess of 12K in the past three years on my two dogs. My girl dog has twice needed a $3500 surgery to fix a torn ACL in her leg. (both sides)

And every time I see her running happily in my yard, I think there wasn't anything better I could have done with that money.

How freaking insane do you have to be to give Facebook shit like your passport information, or your driver's license, etc??? All to get your account unbanned from a site that provides 100% verbal diarrhea?

Enjoy having Facebook store that information indefinitely until they eventually get hacked and your identity gets stolen.

People are so fucking retarded on the internet, it defies description.

Hopefully someone will shoot this piece of shit in the face someday, since that was obviously what he was hoping to the people he 'swatted.' His family will have much lulz.

Glad they got funded. Looked at this other place, but not really sure why they'd go there, unless they plan to have every KS backer register there to help with automating all the shipping etc?

In any case, I hope when I just buy a copy later I can still get the mini-campaign.

News Comments > Anachronox & Other Square IP Pitches Sought
14. Re: Anachronox & Other Square IP Pitches Sought Feb 17, 2015, 12:04 Creston
 
Why ask gamers to pay for a game to be made if itís using our IP?

In other words: Please make games for us, please give us 50% of the profits, but go to Kickstarter for the monies.

I understand that independent devs can't just ignore any potential source of work, but I really kind of honestly hope that everyone tells SE to get fucked. (As much as I want a sequel to Anachronox.)

Skrillex making music for the new Tron game? *facepalm*

bringing Daft Punk on again would've been a better choice.

Daft Punk probably costs quite a bit more money.

I definitely hope they'll make a new Tron game, as Tron 2.0 was a really fun game.

It makes sense now that they went for 30fps. If they'd gone for 60fps, the game would have been 2.5 hours!

while PC accounts for just 3% of boxed units.

Finally decided to back it, only to find out that their brilliant new Shady CC Middle Man no longer accepts discover. Ergo, I can't actually back any KSers anymore.

It sure was a BRILLIANT decision to switch away from Amazon Payments.
