Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Made my otherwise dreary monday!

    Did anyone else have problems with the "clip" from the movie at the end (or was the distortion there intentional and am I missing the punchline here?).

    Funnily enough, this was the first I'd heard of Blizzcon being cancelled, so this show is even providing me with Actual News(tm). Who'da thunk it.

    I want more angry Graham, btw. Headshots (over on ENN) was great, his opinion segment that he's done a few times on this run was funny as all hell, and he's just plain kickass when he goes into full righteous angry nerd mode.

    Btw: Kathleen... your hair... it is fading...

    Heh, loved the bit on CoD DLC. That zynga bs is amazing how blatant they are about ripping off other games.

    COD DLC OMG made me laugh pretty hard.

    Graham, if you read this, the delivery of the COD DLC story was absolutely perfect. Also, hilarious.

    This might be the best episode you guys have done. The timing and tone on jokes was absolutely perfect. I love pretty much every episode of this show anyway, but you guys have managed to go that extra mile this week.

    yeah, I got a couple of distorted points in there too. the punchline is that the commercial is real and terrible.

    I wonder if they've finished level 4 yet. I hope the graphics are tight enough!

    That commercial is actually real?

    Not...like a really terrible parody?

    Well then, I learned something today from reading a forum post about the news(tm). o_O

    yep, it ran on tv during the normal times for ad breaks and everything.

    Graham nailed the DLC delivery, yeah. Paul seemed kinda flat this week, though.

    you're = you are
    your = belonging to you

    their = belonging to them
    there = not here
    they're = they are

    ... a Maverick, a Mustang, a Montego, a Merc Montclair, a Mark IV, a meteor, a Mercedes, an MG or a Malibu, a Mort Moriarty, a Maserati, a Mack truck, a Mazda, a new Monza, or a moped....

    Also a key indicator that a Zynga game is a blatant copy of another IP: it contains the word "Ville"

  • jackaljackal Registered User regular
    It's not just that Zynga steals game mechanics. That would be ok. Everyone does that. Zynga copies design decisions. They don't say, "ok, let's make a tower game" and then start designing what they feel would be a good tower game. There is no design. They look at Tiny Tower and copy their design decisions as closely as possible. This isn't like Angry Birds where they refined the concept and added a lot of flavor and original mechanics.
