    [–] FINAL FANTASY XV: EPISODE ARDYN – PROLOGUE PeteOverdrive 12 points ago * (lasted edited 8 hours ago) in Games

    FFXV is maybe the worst game I played this gen. I have an unhealthy compulsion to finish every game I buy, but I dropped that one. The story is incomplete, what’s there is poorly written, the world feels artificial, the combat is merely tolerable, and the mission design is dedicated to removing player agency so that a not particularly remarkable developer vision for the missions can unfold as intended.

    The fact that it took so long to develop is an absolute embarrassment. To say nothing of how projects like it were privileged over others like Sleeping Dogs, Deus Ex, etc. - which were better, produced on shorter schedules, on lesser resources - were considered failures due to unreasonable expectations by Square Enix, so that projects like FFXV could continue.

    I’m somebody who largely prefers Japanese design values over Western ones, but Square should really be woken up by how poor their Japanese output has been of late. Because this gen, Nintendo, Capcom, etc. (have you PLAYED Resident Evil 2/7, BOTW, Mario Odyssey, Monster Hunter, etc.) sure seem to have gotten the memo, and produced some of the best games this gen.

    But I know who Bobby Kotick is. I don’t know who the person who rigged the animations, or helped keep the frame rate reasonable, or wrote the Facebook posts. This is despite the fact that the latter had a much larger influence on the final product.

    Only to find that the robot was able to create a new battery on its own, and also that the robot was a pedophile.

    Also, there are conservatives that love AOC (other than Ben Shapiro)?

    I guess, of you really stretch it, blue and IAGO are kinda similar, when said in an English accent? ...sort of?

    Yes, which is why they explicitly say they don’t want to do it.

    However, if we can at times reduce air travel by replacing it with more sustainable alternatives, why shouldn’t we?

    [–] Copyright Office Refuses Registration for 'Fresh Prince' Star Alfonso Ribeiro's "Carlton Dance" PeteOverdrive 1 points ago in Games

    The three circle shape MM hats tend to use is an abstraction of the silhouette of the character’s head, and the character himself, whose original creator died decades ago, takes its design from mice, which are a natural occurrence in our world. There are a lot of reasons why it shouldn’t be as protected as it is.

    The Carlton isn’t anymore inspired by other 80s dances than Steamboat Willie, the original Mickey cartoon, is based on Steamboat Bill (same premise, jokes, name).

    The mickey mouse ears are literally just three circles. I wouldn’t argue there’s anything particularly more detailed about them, it’s just about the fact that people can identify them. And people can identify the Carlton. And the game identifies is as “Fresh,” a fairly direct reference to the Carlton.

    It’s not in the GND, it’s in an explainer issued by her office as a quick explanation for the uninformed. She didn’t even necessarily write it, it’s not a legal document, and though multiple conservatives have suggested that she’s proposed a government initiative to take everyone’s cows away, it pretty explicitly says they’re not doing that.

    We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast, but we think we can ramp up renewable manufacturing and power production, retrofit every building in America, build the smart grid, overhaul transportation and agriculture, plant lots of trees and restore our ecosystem to get to net-zero.

    Honestly do it, and advertise it accurately this time. Just lean into it.

    And neither could the citizens of the titular town of Deadwood, HBO’s critically acclaimed drama. But perhaps they finally will when the network releases their new film continuing the series in Spring 2019. The film will star, you guessed it: Ian McShane!
