    In fairness, I'm sure the which-objects-to-render algorithm is tweaked based on the normal minimum flight level, which this mod probably doesn't change. Hard to say whether the high altitude was...

    But there's absolutely nothing to it. It's purest busywork, it's the very definition of "grind" which people are eager to complain about in an RPG or other survival games, but seems oddly overlooked...

    I get bored of Hearthstone after about three matches in a row, even if I'm winning. But I enjoy watching the more likable streamers (Kripp, Kibler, Day9), sometimes as a kind of background noise,...

    How, though? If there's truly about 10^19 systems, the odds should be incredibly low. Maybe they're not properly randomizing the starting locations. Maybe deliberately.

    But. Indie = independent = no (big) publisher. This has been the definition of indie music since forever, and it applies fairly well to games too.

    When you've got fucking Sony doing AAA-level...

    You're right about TV, which has changed a lot for various reasons. But I would really strongly dispute your assertion for literally every other medium. Both in terms of sheer quantity (there are...

    Wait, were the "streamlined" fetch quests and vendor trash in DA2 also a deliberate joke? I always thought they were just absurdly bad design, but if you squint I guess it could be a meta-commentary...

    This is such a bullshit characterization of Star Citizen, I don't know how people believe it. They're not doing anything especially new or difficult.

    Ultima Online was insanely ambitious for 1997,...
  9. Just a quick aside about A Song of Ice and Fire,...

    Just a quick aside about A Song of Ice and Fire, since people have been talking about it. Again, not an example of immaculate writing, but very good in certain aspects.

    Petyr Baelish. As far as...

    Except I have played nearly everything mentioned here, and it still falls short.

    VTM: Bloodlines is actually the closest comparison to Angel (the TV show), both superficially and thematically....

    I'm kind of incredulous that anyone thinks there are real examples of genuinely good videogame writing. I've read a ton of "genre fiction", as the cool kids say, and yes there's a lot that isn't...

    I was watching Day9 play this, and even though he's apparently a bit of a football fan, there were at least three really obvious times in a single game where he should have anticipated a cross and...

    Now that Microsoft has their own entire cloud platform (Azure), it makes very little sense to kill off old game servers. Keeping a lightly-used server running forever costs almost nothing, and really...

    On an infinite timescale, it's easy to imagine a lot of things. I'd put money on a single VR metaverse becoming a really big deal in the next couple decades.

    You need something that captures the...

    Aw, it's just an expansion for BG:EE. That's much less interesting. Also their Twitch stream is a technical disaster.

    Yep. All kinds of businesses fail for all kinds of reasons, very very frequently. Not having a good, complete business plan is one major reason.

    But...I think aspiring indie developers who don't...

    Apple still buys a ton of components from Samsung, despite their bitter rivalry in the mobile phone market and in patent court. I'm just saying, Microsoft potentially buying AMD is pretty unlikely to...

    That's an exaggeration (Hearthstone requires some skill and thought to make the best plays), but it is severely crippled by the high level of randomness present in many of its most powerful cards....

    If they're using the name, they presumably have the license to Forgotten Realms, and hopefully the D&D 5e ruleset as well. I haven't played the latest edition of D&D, but response seems generally...

    The dictionary is one thing, but in practice nobody actually uses the verb "default" like that outside of a financial context. At best, it's a really confusing title. Fun game tho.

    This is so true. I've actually dug through bits of Football Manager's match engine code in a dissasembler (this is easier with Mac binaries because you can see the original function names, fyi for...

    Buy the game with what? Your credit card / PayPal account that already got flagged when you were abusing refunds with your previous account?

    Okay, let's be honest. We've all done some illegal downloading at some point, right? Does scamming the Steam refund system honestly sound like a better option to any of you, personally, knowing that...

    A few indie developers are now complaining about this publicly on Twitter. Mostly the usual suspects who complain about everything and hate their customers.
