Every game should be CoD, BF, AC, FC, WoW, Destiny, or some variation. That's it.

FTL? Trash.
Darkest Dungeon? Rubbish.
Cuphead? Inartful.
Minecraft? Too blocky.
Terraria? Too pixelated.
Broforce? Derivative.
Rocket League? Unrealistic.
Gorogoa? Too artsy fartsy.
Machinarium? Too gray.
Star Citizen? A scam.

Okay, some may argue that last one.

I believe every single one of those were made by people who'd had experience in the industry. His #1 point is that if you aren't talented enough to get experience in the industry, you likely aren't talented enough to make a great game, and likely don't have the experience to be able to project manage a great game, therefore you shouldn't put your financial wellbeing in jeopardy.

He goes on to say you shouldn't get an expensive yet worthless degree in game design (100% accurate), and you shouldn't start big but learn fundamentals first.

All of this feels like pretty good advice. Anyone that's put money into a video game on Kickstarter can probably relate, too.

I'll admit that the article has some good advice. However, one of his main contentions is you need 10 years in the industry to be successful. The FTL team had only two years at 2K before they quit to form Subset games. George Fan only had a couple of years of experience before making PvZ. I'm glad those guys didn't wait, because those are some of my favorite games.

Yeah, if we're trying to break a record for most corruption and criminal activity in a single administration. He's definitely the best at that, and always has been.

No wonder he never released his tax returns like all Presidential candidates have done since Nixon started the trend.

You need Republican votes to impeach. They'll never do it.

Here's how much fast food Americans are eating. Too much.

Been saying this for almost 20 years. I truly believe the majority of health problems in kids and young adults can be linked to the consumption of processed and fast food. Generation X has the sickest kids with heavily over prescribed medications. Our bodies were never meant for that stuff.

It's all true. The majority of disease and illness that humans suffer from is caused or exacerbated by food choices. Sugar and corn syrup are subsidized to make them cheaper. Instead, they should be taxed like alcohol and tobacco. The factory farmed meat we eat is nothing like what our ancestors ate: it's cheaper and more fatty, so we eat a lot more than our ancestors. Add to that our sedentary lifestyles, and it's a recipe for illness and poor health.

No, thank you. It was a great thing President Trump was elected, and I will keep saying that.

It will be a bad thing for the United States if the popular vote, or mob rule by the naive idealists, ever takes over.

Yes, instead we have rule by a conservative minority. Much, much better. Rolleyes

The main problem with the EC is that it gives certain (basically rural) states more voting power per person than other states. That's inherently unequal, and needs to change.

I hear Xbox is getting k/m support, I wonder how they'll fuck that up, because they will, it's what they do.

The keyboard will cost $200 and have a proprietary cable that only connects to Xbox. Ditto for the mouse at $100.

I actually liked the sequels. Not as good as the original, but still a lot of fun.

Justification for ridiculous behavior seems like more and more the norm...

One only need look as far as whom the people elected as president...

People need to stop saying that. He wasn't elected. He was appointed by the outdated electoral college. He lost the popular vote by over 3 million votes. It was the same with Dubya. He lost to Gore, but was appointed by Republican judges.

This instance is just par for the course for lazy people. She probably doesn't brush the snow off the roof of her car in the winter either and lets it blind the vehicles behind her.

It was a little more overt with Bush. But yeah, the EC has got to go. Good luck with that though. Rural states will not vote to give up their own power.

That's still low and way off from a living wage. Min wage here is $14 and becomes $15 in January. That's only $11.71 US atm. Living wage is $20-$25 US depending where you live, and the same here.

Hey, if you sleep in a cardboard box, technically that's still "living." I hear the funeral homes throw out really nice ones.

Set in an epic world where magic exists but only women can use it.

WTF? Men and women could use channeling, they just had different styles and couldn't teach each other.

Yeah, but the women did all the work to learn to use the magic. The men just lazed about drinking mead and watching football.

I've never read the books, but from what I've read women can use it responsibly, but men get driven insane by using it, so men can technically use it, but by sacrificing their sanity.

Given that the rest is following the reborn Dragon or whathaveyou, sounds like it does have men using magic, just, you know, insanely.

Well the men would say that, sose to have an excuse to drink mead and watch football.
