General / Buy Revolver360 Re:actor, is top tier bullet hell.
« on: June 01, 2018, 06:09 PM »
Here's my scrub tier gameplay to try and sell it.

The game is absolutely gorgeous in person, and the skill cap is pretty darned high.

Given the looming death of Adobe Flash, and by extension the site. I felt that it would be nice to record my previous games and analyze their design and creation (or just tear them to shreds). Starting with my oldest games, and moving onto my newest ones. Skipping over any that have been deleted (with possibly one or two exceptions).

First """Games"""|Astrone, Battle for the Fire Crystal 3| ~10 minutes|
First Features|Grand Quest, Grand Quest 2 Dark Hour (not the good ones)| ~12 minutes|
Chasing Success (upcoming)|GrandQuest3 The Sky Temple Of Draco, GrandQuest 4 Revival, GrandQuest 5 The Dawn of Time, GrandQuest 6 The Final Hour|
The War Begins (upcoming)|Raviwars, Raviwars 2|
...| ...|

Astrone|Mainsite quality spam at the purest. A poorly constructed box with random objects strewn about does not a game make.| Grade: F- |
Battle for the Fire Crystal 3|A crummy 'maze' with little thought put into the flow, enemy composition, or balance.| Grade: F |
Grand Quest|Massive for the time, but suffering from broken signposting and progression (and being kinda boring to play).| Grade: D- |
Grand Quest 2 Dark Hour|A refinement of the first game, but still suffering from lesser forms of the same issues and overall bland design.| Grade: D |

General / Sunday TV/Movies discussion Thread.
« on: March 11, 2018, 02:25 PM »
Yo, It's Sunday. Discuss/share any cool shows, movies, or videos you've watched recently.

Also, vote for next Sunday's topic (and sorry about the delay). I've added some new random options for variety.

Real talk, 25% of this thread is probably going to be Steamed Hams memes.

I'm on break, that means I might actually get a chance to sink my teeth into something meaty and play through something...

Just kidding, I have an algorithms project to work on over the break X_X. However I may have been slowly cooking up an overhaul mod to a little known indy game called Good Robot for larks (pm me if you have the game and want to playtest the mod, it's about 70% complete).

Either way, post about games and stuff.

General / Sunday Daily Thread Change Announcement
« on: February 25, 2018, 04:07 AM »
Since threads in the middle of the week don't seem to attract much if any activity, and the Sunday threads are not working out as planned. I am making some changes to the daily thread format.

New Schedule:
Monday- Music
Friday- Video Games
Saturday- Inner Rage
Sunday- Voted Topic

Basically, every Sunday the thread will be about whatever topic was voted on in last week's thread. The poll will not contain an option for the current topic (so no consecutive tech sundays, for example). If y'all have ideas for topics to include in future polls, pm me.

I would have something interesting to read, but I don't atm (unless you count the occasional piece of political news/op-ed).

Deep Fake technology (using machine learning neural networks to swap faces in photos/video) has some some troubling ethical implications and is mostly used for some rather... unsavory stuff.

But... I am enjoying the insertion of Nick Cage into any and all movie scenes.

General / /MMG/ Monday Music General: Neurofunk Edition /MMG/
« on: February 12, 2018, 10:17 AM »
Share/discuss musiks here. Y'all know the drill.

Reminder to put warnings on music with explicit lyrics.

Either way, some Neurofunk/Techstep for the soul. The toppest tier DnB subgenre:
Noisia & Phace - Program:
Apex - Energy Lines:
Emperor - Monolith VIP:

Maybe it will actually lead to something constructive this time.

Edit: Nope.avi

Is it really inner if you post it here?

Sorry about the lack of thread yesterday. :/

Either way, convince me that the best car in Gran Turismo 6 *isn't* the Chaparral 2j. Or not, you can just discuss other games I guess.

General / /WLG/ Wednesday Literature General: Freedom Edition /WLG/
« on: February 06, 2018, 11:21 PM »
TFW Haven't gotten to read anything interesting recently because 4 tests and 2 projects are around the corner.

In contrast to this, going to recommend Free to Choose by Milton Friedman if you want to learn more about glorious free markets. Granted, it is a bit simplistic compared to his other works since it was made with a more general audience in mind (and it's also nearly 40 years old and econ has advanced quite a bit).

What fresh hell awaits us this Sunday?

First reply will hold the answer.

Post your annoyances and inner rage here.

Y do professors always seem to schedule tests at the same time X_X

8am classes murdering my sleep cycle.

So... Todd Howard demanded that I tell yall that Fallout 4 is on sale on steam.

Also, Fallout: NV is best fallout game.

Share/Discuss any interesting videos, movies, or TV shows you have watched or want to watch.

Y'all know the drill.

I'm planning on keeping weekday threads (Mon-Wed) up for an extra day to see how it goes, since they tend to be fairly slow.

Either way, anyone read any particularly good short stories y'all read recently? I quite enjoyed The Writer Will do Something (warning: contains profane language), it does a good job of capturing a tense board room meeting for a failing project.

General / Sunday daily-general feedback thread.
« on: January 28, 2018, 04:21 PM »
Breaking the cycle briefly to ask for feedback about how everyone feels about the daily 'general' threads I've been running to try and incite discussion about things that usually sink.

The biggest issue I've noticed is that the midweek threads (tuesday-thursday) tend to be very slow. Slower than predicted.

Either way, leave feedback regarding anything you dislike about them or would change about them.

General / ~~~Vidya Friday: Brawl Edition~~~
« on: January 26, 2018, 08:15 AM »
So, can someone explain the appeal of Brawlhalla over Smash Bros (or smash clones like Rivals of Aether)?

Also, playing a copy of Watchdogs I got for free. It's trash, don't bother.

Also, discuss games and stuff.

« on: January 25, 2018, 01:08 AM »
I actually used this as my phone alarm for a little. No joke.

Discuss any interesting/not-so interesting movies/shows/videos. Link to whatever (within the rules, of course).

General / /WLG/ Wednesday Literature General /WLG/
« on: January 24, 2018, 10:33 AM »
Discuss any interesting reading material here, fiction or non-fiction.

Bonus points for agreeing with me that "The Road" was overrated and was carried critically by the name recognition of Cormac McCarthy.

With the crypto bubble finally bursting, GPU prices might eventually fall back down to reasonableness! Ram prices are still nonsense, however.

Either way, discuss anything relating to tech here.

« on: January 22, 2018, 01:20 AM »
Discuss any swell auditory experiences you have found over the past few days. Not just limited to powermetal.

Links with explicit lyrics must contain a warning.

Some power metal to get yall started. It's reasonably heavy with coherent lyrics:
Dragonforce - Revolution Deathsquad
Sabaton - Primo Victoria
Sonata Arctica - My Land

Aren't you angry that this thread is late? Vent about that and whatever else here.

It's friday my dudes. Discuss like games and stuffs.

Far Cry 3 > Far Cry 4 from what I've played so far. It just had more engaging writing (and the gameplay is basically the same in both). On the flip side, Far Cry 4 is gorgeous.

Also, the PC port of Forza Horizon 3 is horrendous. Microsoft ples fix.

Share/discuss videos and shows ranging from the most recent episodes of whatever (I recommend The Grand Tour; its sorta like Top Gear except it still has Jeremy Clarkson) to 7 second bits of nonsense.

Links containing explicit language must contain a warning.

General / /MMG/ Monday Music General /MMG/
« on: January 15, 2018, 06:21 AM »
Post or discuss music of high (or low) quality here.

Links containing explicit lyrics must contain a warning.

Starting off the thread with some black midi; a genre named after the appearance of its sheet music:
Scub Domino - Flight of the Bamboo Cutter (black midi remix)
MusiMasta - Unity (black midi remix)
TheSuperMarioBros2 - Pi
