Honestly don't mind it myself. The setup there looks convincing but then again the logo placement looks a bit too convenient. I don't see what's so wrong with just plopping down products which look like they fit the world in ways we would plop them down ourselves. That's my problem with product placement, it's done in… » 3/13/15 3:35pm 3/13/15 3:35pm

That's one of my biggest problems with older RPGs. I play them almost exclusively on emulators just to ramp the speed up to 2 or 3x the original game speed. Usually dialog and/or movement is painfully slow compared to modern RPGs. Almost always make sure I play the original first the way it was meant and then rip it… » 3/13/15 3:08pm 3/13/15 3:08pm

Considering the brightness, loudness and size of the burn. Pretty sure it was heating the ground around the entire area but the smoking we see is likely from temperature difference between the ground and the air above it. Just look at how hot the ground under the burn got, looks molten. » 3/12/15 5:20am 3/12/15 5:20am

I could have used that diagram when I was around 10 or so. Used to take copper wire and wrap coils around things like toilet paper rolls then provide charge to them with battery chargers. Incredibly dangerous for two reasons. 1) This is how you build an electromagnetic accelerator. 2) As you can see things get very… » 3/11/15 4:13am 3/11/15 4:13am

Another thing to consider is that it's very easy to identify bad meat just by looking at it. Produce however is a bit harder to determine, often requiring knowledge that is far from common. I noticed this a lot working at a grocery store as a bagger, identified a lot of bad fruits and veggies which looked, smelled and… » 3/10/15 9:45pm 3/10/15 9:45pm

It's looking more like response to hype to me. At first I was reading that you get a car early on like in FFVIII but for the most part it would be a typical FF game. Then the internet reacted to that with hype before hearing any concrete details (so typical). Next up we'll see it focusing more on the "bros" since… » 3/10/15 11:09pm 3/10/15 11:09pm

No, no it's not. Most RPG gamers switched from consoles to PC after the Xbox360 and PS3 turned out to be a bust for RPGs. Because there are a huge amount of RPGs for PC and the vast majority of them are beer licensed or creative commons. You just don't hear as much about them because they aren't advertised all over… » 3/06/15 5:02pm 3/06/15 5:02pm

That's going to depend on the game. It's entirely possible to load multiple input libraries side-by-side and use them like that. I do it all the time in my programming projects. The computer don't care, the OS don't care (anymore), all that's left is mainstream game developers since they seem to want to cram a… » 3/05/15 4:15am 3/05/15 4:15am

Yeah, it's nice to see artist that consider the concept of integrity when drawing their characters over time. Princess Zelda looks more like a princess than the majority of princesses from save the princess themed games. I would love to see her (reluctantly) attending castle matters with whichever sycophant tries to… » 3/03/15 9:46am 3/03/15 9:46am

That's a good point. Too often we see people do things and stating a reason that equates to "because god wants me to". I don't like that myself, tells me the person isn't confident in their own judgement or is looking for a scapegoat when things go wrong. To me it doesn't matter if you believe or disbelieve as long as… » 2/28/15 10:01am 2/28/15 10:01am

What I'm worried about is sharing game patch/update related torrents that are for competing platforms. I've had to copy and paste the updater links for a few games to people over Steam when some random update patched in the wrong address. Also used as a way of opening up unofficial fan run game servers for games that… » 2/17/15 2:54am 2/17/15 2:54am
