Should Video Games Cost More?

Hey Folks...!   There is a golden rule with questions in headlines. If a headline asks you a question the answer is almost certainly no. We can see that I've opened this post with a question but perhaps...maybe this time we are bu...


Imagine being a spam bot for tourism in the middle of a pandemic. That has to be one of the saddest robo existences.


Finally beat Shadow Tactics on the day it is leaving game pass. Good game, moderately frustrating, but the high points are fairly high.


The stars have aligned! You must both now battle to the death!


Whenever a YouTube channel I like uploads and I see that it is Cyberpunk content I get such whiplash. Because I'm thinking "Yay! New stuff to watch!" then "Boo! I already know I want that game :'(..."


Thought yesterday was Friday. Woke up today thinking I didn't have work. That's a real sticky wicket!


He collects the coin forever as the 10 second timer keeps killing him over and over. Someday he will be free. Someday the game will be done. #bassjamthing


https://www.twitch.tv/oafkad Streaming for the next hour or so for anyone interested.


If you've ever built a platformer you'll probably understand why this (almost) working is such a big moment for me. Slopes are...extremely non trivial. #bassjamboreethingy


Welp! That's Ni No Kuni 2 Platinumed! I'm gonna take a brief pause probably from the next game to try and complete the Bass Game Bash thing.


All done! I'll upload the video to YouTube for folks that would like to watch on their own time. We've got a dude who jumps, wiggles his butt, and a clock that counts. The world is our oyster.


Alright. I'll be streaming for the next hour or two. There is no real plan but I'm gonna see what gets done and answer coding questions that anyone might have if I can. https://www.twitch.tv/oafkad


For me the mixer thing is pretty disappointing. Folks I met on that were *so nice*. I even had a viewer check up on my health when I stopped streaming for a bit. They were concerned I had gotten covid. Facebook is an enormous downgrade.


Alright. I've worked out what I'm gonna make for this Bass Jam thing. I'll be starting tomorrow after work and streaming it for anyone interested in C# Unity development. Work ends 6PM my time, so stream should start 6:30 to 7PM.


Got to see my favorite dog on our short walk today. We saw him going both directions on our walk. First way he was confused by these masked strangers. But after he got a sniff and recognized our smell it was party time.


Huh. "Online Trophies: 0, Number of missable trophies: 0, Does difficulty affect trophies?: No." I guess I'll be getting TLOU2? Neat.


I struggle to reconcile just how good the CNC Remaster is. The idea that a fairly priced and open source remaster of some of my favorite games would happen under EA is beyond belief. I expect to wake and be like "Oh! I've been in a coma since 2016!"


Basically every game looked cool. I guess I'm getting a PS5.


You ever stretch upwards and nearly faint? Curious if when my muscles tighten if they are cutting off circulation to my brain. Wild shit.


Now that I'm officially a bigger gunpla and gundam fan than Torchman I think I should write a c-blog on the topic. It is tough being at the top.


I'm still surprised that Bass loved Owlboy so much he is reviewing it twice! Talk about love. This is sticker star all over again.


Looking forward to the DLC. That was quite a journey.


So you might not know but the quiet leaving option in Animal Crossing (the minus sign way of leaving) is a really bad idea when multiple people are on an island. It can end up DC'ng many, or all, of the other people when you bail. Use the airport <3.


One of my favorite things to do when I was younger was to write short stories on whatever forums I was active on. It died with the death of forums but I think I might try bringing it back now that dtoid has brought back the superior online chat tool.

A lot has changed since the last time I was here. And yet if you slapped two pictures of me beside one another you'd be hard pressed to see them.

If you really enjoy following someone that is almost unbelievably inoffensive I'm glad to offer. It isn't that I avoid controversy I'm just genetically predisposed to being boring.
