  1. I suppose the follow-up question is which fantasy author is JV most similar to?
  2. This game never ceases to amaze me. On the other hand, the last time we discovered a bug like this, it lead to Blades of Rogue being possible. So who knows how we could exploit this one.
  3. I'm a week too late for this topic, but I've finally gotten my site working again, so the BoA Design Tutorial is available again. It doesn't cover everything, but it walks you through creating a (very) simple scenario from start to finish.
  4. Granted. I wish I didn't have to cancel a games meet-up that I set up months ago.
  5. Granted, you are now a Hasbro employee creating uninspired novelty versions of The Game of Life. I wish I could have a sandwich right now.
  6. You're probably already familiar with the story, but it's simple enough if you're not. A cursed magical item that grants whatever wish you make with it, but never in the way you want, and always in a way you regret. The classic example is wishing for money, only to receive it as a settlement after the death of a loved one. If you had such an item, would you tempt fate? What wish would you make? As far as posting games go, this one's pretty straightforward. Look at the wish made by the person above you, and decide the twisted, ironic way their wish is fulfilled. Then make a wish of your own, and see how the next person in the thread grants it. Two quick rules that will make things more entertaining: No lawyering. If you really wanted, your wish could be pages and pages long, trying to ensure that it's granted exactly how you want it. But that's no fun. Wish makers, try to keep your wish to a sentence, at most two. No giant meteors. So many wishes, from "I wish I was happy for the rest of my life" to "I wish to end child poverty" to "I wish I never had to see my ex again" can be granted with the same rote response: "a giant meteor hits the earth and kills everyone lol". This works but is a bit uninspired. Wish granters, try to come up with something more tailored to the wish, rather than a giant meteor (or something similar). I'll start us off with something well intentioned but probably easy to twist. Have fun!
  7. Mmm, I could go for some cabbage right now...

  9. A while back I read Identity: the Demand for Dignity and the Politics of Resentment by Francis Fukuyama (I was trying to read The End of History and the Last Man, but my library didn't have a copy). I went in expecting to not agree with Fukuyama, and that's pretty much what I got. More recently, I finished Mark Fisher's Capitalist Realism: Is There No Alternative?, which I also was not a big fan of. On the fiction side of things, I picked up two more trades of Astro City, which continues to be Very Good. Only missing two trades from the Vertigo run now.
  10. Accessing the assets isn't that hard, even for AAA games. If you wanted to prevent that (or at least make it more difficult), you'd have to use DRM, which Jeff is against. The best way to deal with another company copying your digital assets is a lawyer.
  11. Oh, it pays fine, especially for temp work. It's a decent gig, not complaining. And good luck with things over there. It's nutty all over these days.
  12. Alas, it isn't a holiday. And even if it was, I wouldn't have the day off -- I'm an election officer again.
