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!

Oh, [chat] is a place on Earth.

    Oh hey!

    I just realized I could skip the final today and still get a B in the class (it's non-cumulative and he drops the lowest exam because this class is softball as fuck).

    So that takes a lot of the burden off my shoulders.

    I dunno man, weren't you bitten in the ass by such things before? Wouldn't it be safer to take the test anyway, even if you get a shitty score?

    Oh, I'm still taking the test.

    I just am incredibly less afraid of failing it.

    Why would you write a book called The Mongoliad?

    That's like calling it The Retord.

    As a part Mongolian I find this incredibly offensive.

    I love 4X

    But I am the turtliest of turtles after my initial expansion rush.

    Every game I play the same: Scout like mad, rush the best spots to build, do just enough to defend borders while I try (and almost always succeed) to tech and economy ahead. Then in the final 10% decide how I want to win.

    I know the best way to play Civ IV, for instance, is to tech to iron and take out your nearest neighbour that doesn't have it with a load of axemen. But I almost never do it. Gotta have those settlers and workers, get that ocean/river spot near the luxury resource.

    Also I love the first phase the most by far. Once I'm actually managing an entire empire it gets a bit tedious.

    If I could, I would design a game that is much like Civ V early turns with raging and teching barbarians, a large map where big parts of the map are not settleable and many 'goody huts' and loot that is more random, and can be bad.
    The Civ IV mod RifE plays a bit like that, except that it has insane balance issues and the AI can't handle the difficulty and fails at economy.

    Pony, your concerns about Whedon and the Avengers are misplaced. There characterization is consistant with the previous films. Cap didn't suddenly become a smart ass teenager for instance. Black Widow doesn't pull off any waif-fu execpt was she would in the comic. And she isn't horribly abused to make some weird feminist point.

    None of his normal sins are in the film.

    this is heartening to hear, thom

    i'll probably still pass on seeing it theatrically, but that's good to know

    Jacob and I both loved it. And while the trailers didn't do a lot for me, the film was much better.

    No emo, lots of organic fight seqences, and a sense of scale. It's worth a look on the big screen.

    ehhhhhh

    i think i'll still pass

    i'm pretty sure the theater here only has it in 3D and i'm done endorsing that garbage

    I will admit 3D does not add anything to the film. Thank god for the solid script.

    Meanwhile, I approve of Tube's latest action in the Awesome Forum.

    Seriously. Take the damn test and stop half-assing just because you can. Learn to put the extra effort in now before you are forced to do it at a crucial juncture.

    Edit: you learned your lesson. <3 <3 <3

    The problem with 4x games is that their scope is appealing but 80% of the actual gameplay and thus time spent with the game is fucking dreadful meaningless tedium. You only rarely get the chance to do something exciting or fun; they are mostly bureaucracy and administration simulations.

    Interspersed with lovely bouts of genocide.

    at least, that's how I play them.
