Hah! Saw you playing PA the other night, Seph. How is it creating the shower gang-rape gameplay?

I think I just finally created a prison that's somewhat stable. First few attempts resulted in my prisoners killing the guards when they realized dinner wasn't going to be ready. Working on getting the first cell block up and running since they're currently hanging out in the holding cell. I really like how detailed the simulation is but it can be frustrating because it takes a while to get the bare minimum up and running since the workers need to construct the rooms, get the electricity and water running, place the doors, lights, windows, desks, chairs, everything. A bare minimum prison requires a holding room, showers, kitchen, canteen (cafeteria I believe), yard, and utilities of course. And each of those room designations require certain items to be placed for them to be operational. In just need to save more often because I've repeated that initial construction many times now.

I bought the new one thinking "Oh here's that indie/amateur dinosaur game that I've been hearing about over the years, the trailer looks pretty awesome." But in the back of my mind I kept thinking, "This is a dumb impulse purchase, there's something terribly wrong with this game isn't there?"

Haven't tried it out yet. Been playing some Prison Architect which is pretty challenging.

What pattern? Are you suggesting that this is all part of some far-reaching conspiracy?

I think he just meant the pattern of passing unpopular legislation while the nation is distracted. I don't know if that's necessarily on purpose or not but it does happen.

Add in the fact they are Islamic extremists...

This one didn't get a number because you made it up right?

Link below, there's plenty of proof the bombers were Islamic.

Yep, it's a known fact that they were Muslims.

Also mentions out there they were extremists (if you don't think bombing innocent civilians is an extreme act...I can't help you there). You guys can google facts for yourselves too

I kind of figured you would go into a, "they're Islamic and committed an extreme act therefore they're Islamic extremists" line of logic but that's not how the designation is typically applied. By that reasoning, "Christian extremist" would cover a majority of the America's most extreme criminals.

But having said that, I must admit now that you are correct. Initially the only thing said about it was the mother's claims of prior FBI investigation but she also claimed the whole thing was a setup. Now I see that much more information has been released concerning the gradual radicalization of the older brother. A good summary of the facts can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dzhokhar_and_Tamerlan_Tsarnaev

I'm still curious to know whether he hatched this on his own or if he planned with extremists online or in his travels to Russia. If you want to go the conspiracy route, he was played by the Russians so that he would commit a terrorist act against the United States so that Russia could crack down on Chechnya without too much complaining from the U.S.

Just recently hit the 1 year anniversary of my laser eye surgery... Of course it was a year where glasses seemed to reach a new height of hipness.

It has been a long time of uneasy quiet on the terrorism front - we all knew it was only a matter of time but it still is shockingly horrible to see the images coming out of Boston.

And I can guarantee that none of the runners, spectators, and security personnel (least of all the 8 year old child who died today) had anything to do with "American Imperialism", so how about we drop it.

My heart goes out to them, but it does have everything to do with that or it wouldn't be happening to begin with. This stuff doesn't occur in a vacuum.

We don't know that it has anything to do with that. It could be some ass against taxes, or that believes the stupid rumors that there's an ammo shortage due to the government, or that thinks the government is about to prevent abortions.

I'm pretty sure it's going to turn out to be the Mooninites.

I love that link from the SimCity Nissan article.

The way to get 1.8 million happy citizens? Put tax rate to zero, and provide no services at all.

To call SimCity "broken" would be giving it too much credit. It apparently doesn't actually simulate anything.

Creston

That looks like bullshit. If you don't provide both power and water, your sims will move out. I suspect someone's been hacking their copy.

Possibly using the offline hack/mod and the game is assuming regional cities will eventually provide the services but the data never arrives to update.

Just got the very last $20 pledge. I feel special, like 1/14995 special.

What's the difference betwen the $20 and $25? Did they recently add the $20?

Jesus, some of my favorite games were made by LucasArts. They haven't been that same company for a long time now but this still sucks

TIE Fighter, Grim Fandango, Dark Forces, Maniac Mansion, Monkey Island, Full Throttle, The Dig, etc. So many great games

Brings back memories, there needs to be a Classic LucasArts Adventure pack released asap!

Here's an incomplete one: http://store.steampowered.com/sub/2102/

edit: And after some searching, here's the one that got me into adventure games as a kid: http://www.amazon.com/Lucas-Archives-Volume-1-Pc/dp/B00000K50T

I'm sure some relative must've picked it up because "Hey 6 games for the price of one!" one was Star Wars screensavers though. But holee shit Day of the Tentacle (includes original Maniac Mansion too), Fate of Atlantis, and Sam and Max... That was enough games to last for years before the days of internet walkthroughs.

So you love gratuitous violence for violence sake, huh? I guess you think things like Sandy Hook were amazing entertainment value then.

Wow tone it down there guy. Apparently if anyone likes violence in sports (any player-player contact really) they enjoy school shootings. Fuckin nut.

I bet it was the club where the party was held that did the hiring of the females. They can't turn away dudes at the door like they would on a regular night so they brought in outside talent to maintain the ratio

Utter laziness or console memory limitations gone crazy is what.. that's all. It takes about 2 minutes to modify a face texture to be slightly different and another 2 minutes to modify certain parts of a face model up or down, left or right. And another 30 minutes to create different colors and patterns for clothes, and however long their art pipeline from export to import into the engine takes. (If it's unreal engine, that's probably less than 10 minutes)

Creating UNIQUE art assets is expensive, modding them for slight variation is not. And hair and eye color is one of the easiest things in the world of art to change when you have a done model of someone to work with.

But worse than the people, all children in this game (per gender) are clones. It is so absurd to see a downscaled clone in the arm of that women on battleship island and 10m along you see 2 of them playing with a girl that looks like all the other girls (ugly as hell to boot). The models of the children are anatomical incorrect (sometimes bones are displaced and stretch/bend in absurd ways)

This is such an absurd stylistic break too. The world is unique, and they squander their worlds impact with laziness like that.

;/

You're not supposed to be paying that much attention the rabble. I haven't noticed it much and I think there are more models (or at least I've been given that impression) than people here are implying.
