GDC Free Talks
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on March 14th, 2017 @ 10:56AM

Video game conference. Anything without a star is free to watch. Post in the comments if there's anything good. 12 pages.

GCD

Zelda one to me yesterday and I’m finding it insightful: http://gdcvault.com/play/1024562/Change-and-Constant-Breaking-Conventions

The art, engineering, and design leads talk about Breath of the Wild – specifically how to create a sandbox that lends itself naturally to problem-solving using the tools available in your environment (everything from “chop down a tree to cross a river, because wood floats and trees can be chopped down” to “use balloons and a raft with bombs on it to float a bomb raft into an enemy camp, using the wind leaf, then shoot the bombs with an arrow shot through a fire to explode them”).

The lessons about creating multiplicative design are useful for anyone making endgame sandboxes that wants to get the most out of their content – TLDR: create simple mechanisms that can be used in a variety of contexts.

Nintendo Switch
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on March 3rd, 2017 @ 8:25AM

Everyone is going crazy for it.


For it or for Zelda? The Wii U was a bum deal, sure there were a few fun games on it, but Nintendo's Catalog was so shallow as to make it pointless. Yes, Skyrim will be on it, but I already have a PC. Yeah multi-player stardew valley will come out on it, but that will be on the PC.

This time, I will not be suckered into buying it until it is successful.

Wii was pretty bad too. Commercially it was a success, but my friend said it was like a bread maker appliance. When you first get it, you are pretty excited and use it a lot, and you maybe use it when you are getting guests. But mostly it just sits there and collects dust.

If they would only get the 3rd party support like MS and Sony have, it would be a better machine to get. I'm not even talking about exclusives, even the cross platform games would help it out. The first party games like Zelda, Metroid, and Mario, while great (this new Zelda is getting phenomenal reviews), can only carry the system so far.

I know at least 3 families that bought the Wii. When the honeymoon was over, they kind of regretted their choice. Some of them were casual players that would have never bought a console and ran out and bought the Wii because they played it at a friends house. The stopped playing and said they weren't going to ever buy another system again. I personally think that is why the WiiU did so bad.

Switch may have a chance, but after playing Zelda, is there anything else that you would want to play? Are you going to have to wait for that next big title? Do you really want to spend $360 to play ONLY Zelda?

When friends ask me about it, I tell them to wait for the next BIG game to come out, pay a bit less for Zelda (and maybe the Switch itself) and at least you will have 2 big games to play right off the bat. Let the early adopters pay for it.

Steam early access. Catz picked it up for $10 on a steam sale. It looks pretty amazing. It's single player. He's been playing it beside me. I like people who make games that aren't the same old stuff over and over. That's how games used to be in the console days before we got stuck on PC games of like 8 types.

Las Vegas: Pinball Hall of Fame
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on December 13th, 2016 @ 8:53AM

I've heard a lot about this place over the years. One employee quit and was forced to move to Las Vegas but said "at least I still have the PHoF"

So finally I decided to check it out with the kids. They loved it. We spent about 2-3 hours in there. I got to do about all I wanted before I was sick of it. We spent about $25. It's non-profit so the donations go back to the place which is nice. Two people were running it and they were really nice. I just worry about punks/jerks going in there and wrecking the place instead of appreciating the cool games they've restored or kept going. But I suppose that's not my problem. Let's just wish for the best for them.

They have a FEW arcade games.

They have some really weird ones.

They had this awesome combat pinball game where two players stand on opposite sides of it, and it rotates whose turn it is and the players fight pinball vs. pinball. That's pretty cool. They had one VIDEO pinball game where it rotates between what looks like 100+ pinball games. But the virtual versions/animated, etc., kinda bite in my opinion.

I'd say for sure give the place a shot and take kids. There were a bunch of work people there.

I finally quit. I got up to level 30. I was the last of (3) hardcore people even playing it. All thanksgiving a teen kept telling me, WHY ARE YOU STILL PLAYING THAT.

The problem was you collect all the dudes then have nothing to do with them. Gym fighting takes too long and isn't especially fun. Then it was hurting my Ingress careers.

Send me your email for an invite. Pretty much Ingress but it has 4 factions, classes, and portals you can build wherever. Game is from India. The desperation is there for a REAL game of this gameplay type.

You can join my Google spaces for the latest pokemon news https://goo.gl/spaces/EVqAaV9ABqutwW8C9 (click here) I have 15 free subscribers now.

  • 10/21 - up to level 28 and 1/2. I have 0 fun. It's just business.
  • 9/1 - Says 900 days to level 40. What a rip. I'm seeing a lot fewer players now. My 87 channel cleared out to 4 people. My other 50+ channel cleared out to about 27 people. It's dying. The huge mistake they made is disabling all the methods for FINDING POKEMON which gave people such excitement. + the grind to max level is 3 years.
  • 8/29 - level 26 finally. 15 days at level 25.

I really don`t understand the hate. Or the pride in not doing something that is popular. You guys are hipsters or something right? That`s what hipsters are right?

Why the fuck do you care what other people do in their spare time? I don`t play Overwatch, but I don`t wear that as a point of pride or complain that other people are wasting their time on their chosen recreational activity. Holy shit.

Tomb Raider

8/4 - OK I beat it . As everytime, I spent too much time upgrading, and it wasn't as hard as I thought. I couldn't get the sound to work on any of the final scenes. Guess I have to youtube the ending to see what happened. I have no idea.

8/3 - 82%. You get to the end and you still have tons to upgrade so I'm scouring the map for things to upgrade.

I've been playing the new one I got for $38 on steam sale. It's pretty cool. The aiming is really hard on controller though.

Games I need to get
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on June 15th, 2016 @ 6:21PM

Now
No time to play them but I still need to get:

  • Far Cry Primal
  • Tomb Raider: whatever latest

Future

  • South Park
  • Battlefield 1

The new South Park looks to be just as good/funny as the first one - trailer

Battlefield 1 is definitely on my list but the game I'm really looking forward to is the new Ghost Recon Wildlands - trailer (such a great trailer!)
