Pirates of the Caribbean: TOW Gameplay - Android / iOS
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on June 25th, 2017 @ 3:34PM
6/25 - Game on Google Play (or Iphone). AND found out this week you can play the game on your computer with "Facebook Gameroom" looks better, the only weird thing is the vertical view. So awesome. Our guild is major bad ass. Alliances., group attacks.
Remember the days when we would all pile on a game? Subspace? Those days are lost cuz you are living up to your deal. Play pirates, it rules. Our base is amazing.
I'm at level 13, stuck on upgrading to L14. I discovered some mistakes. When you go to trade, you have to pick "automatic sell" or you have to manually do it. So like 30 voyages my ships were returning by doing nothing before I figured it out.
I'm up to level 13. It's mostly just basic clicking/busy work. Still pretty addicting.
Some guys at work said play this game. This is MY type of game. I have to try it. Server #18. I haven't had time to start it yet.COMMENTS | GAMES | DIGG

Ingress is the most cheated game I've ever played
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on June 20th, 2017 @ 4:35PM
Disclaimer: I'm an employee of Blizzard Entertainment. The opinions below are my own and not representative of the company.
I've played games since 1980, 37 years. This game is the most cheated game I've ever played. Even FPS games where you have a wall hacker, aimbotter, IN EVERY ROUND YOU PLAY are LESS CHEATED than this game. I've played Ingress for 4.5 years now. I am near top 200 globally, and was rank #91 at one time. And I was I think the 13th person to Level 16.
Ingress is cheated by spoofing, by multiple accounts (you can create as many as you want and use as many as you want simultaneously with hacks.) One high level reported this bot has been sitting in the same location for 3 fucking years, and they haven't done anything about it.
The game is a GPS "game" where the intention is you go to the locations and play. However, people fake their location on their phone or on their computers at home and completely ruin the game play. So many people have been driven out of the game because they don't want to spend mine/time going places only to have some jerk at home spoofing to counter them. A few months back, someone spoofed the entire New Zealand. Niantic (NIA), creators of Ingress and Pokemon Go, took the extraordinary action of fixing those. But typically they do nothing to help.
A single spoofing person can control and affect the entire area, making the game unplayable at times.
The main problem is, players learn who spoofs, all report them via their ingress help system. The company's support just closes your ticket and marks as "solved" without even doing anything about it. We all know who spoofs (both sides) and we can never get anyone to do anything to help us against the spoofers.
This one spoofer has been spoofing for FUCKING 4 years. Who the fuck cheats for 4 years in a game. This guy is diabolical socipath. We finally got him banned for 1 and 1/2 years. He just created a new account and had it back up in a month, then also had 8+ more accounts one either side. A normal company would go, oh well we see you were banned before, we'll believe that you're up to this again especially as shitloads of people report you. But not Niantic. They keep doing nothing and let the person now have (2) main accounts and 8+ alts. + storage on all those alts while the cap is supposed to be 2,000 per player. Instead they're running around with at least 20,000 inventory space. It's impossible to ever run them out of gear. They loot with all their alts, they refil from their alts. They loot keys x accounts on portals so they can always link to a portal when a regular 1 person would not have the key everytime.
So the problem is, there's ZERO help and ZERO support. Two people can control an entire town with spoofing and no one can do much to stop them. That's when you need the game creator's help, and they never give it. One time, a now deceased employee said, "we don't like to ban cheaters because they'll just come back and cheat more."
Each person they've banned for cheating/spoofing, they allow to just create a new account and it's 1-7 days until they're "max" usable level again. And they never keep track of who was banned before and treat every account as a new person. It's so dumb.
I've completely given up trusting or expecting them to do anything about cheating. They've also mistakenly banned (4) major players so far for cheating who were not cheating. So they ban the people who are just playing and don't ban the people who are obviously cheating.
So pokemon Go launched and the people cheat even worse at that game. It's like 80% cheating. They tried various game methods but everyone was cheating. In most situations it didn't affect you except in the case of battling over gyms which was the only combat in the game. You were facing people who are level 30-40 when the possible level was more realistically 20-30 at the beginning.
So, Niantic has really redefined mobile gaming by creating GPS games. They've captured how cool a GPS game could be with more gameplay or actual cheating inforcement. However, both games have little to no gameplay, and they do nothing against the cheaters which pretty much ruins the game. I kept waiting for them to add a game designer and start adding fun gameplay, but it never happened. The game hasn't had any new content in like 2+ years when they added Level 16 back in 2014. The creator said ingress is a "tech demo" and it remains as such, waiting for them or someone else to build an actual game on the GPS game format. They are working on multiple projects so maybe they'll partner with someone who can create an actual game. I look forward to the day when a "REAL" game comes out using that format.
So why keep playing? Monopoly. There's no other gps games. There's one beta of a game from India but it's not up right now. Additionally they made (5-6) year achievements. I'm on year 4 of 5 year achievements. Also there's only 3 or so defenders vs. 60 enemy players (they do nothing to help even the teams) so if I quit, everyone will quit.COMMENTS | GAMES | DIGG

Women + Ingress
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on May 17th, 2017 @ 1:50PM
The enemy (and some of the allied) women sure hate me at this game. I'm on 4 years and 5 months. They stalk the SHIT out of me. Their entire days revolve around where I go and what I'm doing. You think, oh there's no way anyone would get in their car over me would they? But it's been happening for 4+ years. I think I drive them crazy with my epic arrogant shit talking skills in chat. 22+ years of IRC/etc. If they really hate me, they should just ignore me, and not care what I do. That's the best defense.
Why women like this game so much, I don't know. It's barely a game, it's officially a tech demo. I did notice the quality level of women went up massively going to Pokemon. I started to see hot women.
- Some follow me in their cars
- Some try to follow me on foot while I'm on my bike. Dumb b's
- They will go anywhere that I go, often right after or at least the next day.
- If I go somewhere stupid, where it would make no sense to get in the car and go there because I went there, THEY STILL GO there. Even if the points make no sense on the map. They will drive an hour for a single portal that I take.
- One time I went to an island, AND THEY FUCKING FOLLOWED ME TO THE ISLAND later on. hahah.
- One sat outside the portal by my house for 2 hours the other day. Nutjobs. haha.
- Few times they will somehow gain access to our work courtyard then sit there hours, camping the place.
- Some will come back to the portal by my house upwards of 3 times in a day to get me.
- This one sea hag, I like to call her. The bridge troll, didn't like that I might get a badge, so she sent someone from another CITY to come follow me around. hahaha.
I'd love to leave them all behind and move to a different game. Many of them are super fat and ugly and one of them even gives me the falling feeling every time I see her face. I prepare myself for how ugly she is, but it always catches me. Her voice sounds like she gargles rocks.
One thing is clear, it's the most women harassing the shit out of me game ever and it's the most women I've ever pissed off at anything. haha. I seem to have this amazing gift of causing them to go crazy in real life.COMMENTS | GAMES | DIGG

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.

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.COMMENTS | GAMES | DIGG

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.COMMENTS | GAMES | DIGG

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.
