    There are probably more elegant ways of doing it, but the way I've made the melee attacks work at the moment is to set a variable called HitCheck to "true" at the same time as registering the key...

    They are nice trees. :) The darker values on the "sunny" side of the darker coloured ones make it look like they're entirely in shadow and don't really "pop" from the background like the lighter ones...

    Not so sure just pairing it with a "killer app" would be enough to bust the market wide open in the way Steam did, seeing as this is likely to be a rather expensive extra cost to bolt onto the...

    His twitters say he's writing a comic book with Karen Gillan but that he's still "firmly in videogame world". Hopefully that means he'll still feel the occasional fancy to write about them on this...

    Since it hasn't been mentioned yet, Crate and Crowbar is a good gaming podcast by a bunch of PC Gamer and RPS writers.

    Forced by whom? I haven't been following Gearbox, but I was under the impression that they bought Duke Nukem on their own initiative and that Colonial Marines was largely farmed out so that they...

    Thanks, it's encouraging to see an improvement from attempt to attempt, and people said nice things on the twitters, which was heartening.

    First level is done (by which I mean I tested some stuff and can't be bothered fiddling with it any more), and I made an unnecessarily long video with a lot of talking about what I've got so far.

    Anything without a lot of dialogue or un-mutable music tends to work fine. I usually have either music or a podcast on while playing Action RPGs.

    By the maths he himself gives in the interview they couldn't have kept development going for 9 months on the money they asked for, even disregarding the Kickstarter cut, payment fees and paying for...

    So you make a rape analogy, then say it's nothing of the sort, just the same kind of argument (whut?). Then you say he's viciously attacked by mostly baseless and subjective accusations. By whom?...

    No, it is not the job of PR to lie. We have laws against that, so what you're saying is nonsense. Kindly explain which accusations were baseless and subjective and why.

    Yeah, a phone conversation where a man who seems to have lied in his professional role is asked if he lied in his professional role is so much like sexual violence.

    From a legal standpoint I'm entirely with you, and I think it's silly to be calling for refunds. That doesn't mean people shouldn't feel disappointment in how the project has been managed and that...

    Don't be daft, I'm saying there's a big difference between someone running a dishonest business and someone getting crucified for making a stupid joke or remark on the internet.
