Holy Cow! 200 Followers! Thanks to all of you.
In celebration of this I guess I’ll release my Remake of the classic Macenstein mod “Amerika the Beautiful”. Have fun!

Run with GZDoom, since dynamic lights.

Got this working, turns out I had an outdated version of GZDoom. Whoops.
I’ve never played the original mod, so maybe it’s just me, but the enemies seem overly vicious; they tear through your health harder than Chaingunners and take a lot of ammo to go down. It’s really kicks in at the third map, which had more than a few points where I was pinned savescumming behind crates, unable to grab more ammo because I’d be ripped to shreds the second I ran to grab some.
The final boss seemed to drag on a bit too; I was nearing the end of the ammo boxes by the time he finally died.
I think this is a really cool concept, I’m just not sure it was executed perfectly. I’d love to see a slightly toned down version.

Apparently gay supporters of #GamerGate are traitors who should die.

As a gay supporter of gamergate

This is more homophobic than they perceive videogames to be


“Shock Culture is dead.” Ben Kuchera, as his site puts out an almost constant stream of articles about Hatred, proving it is not dead. (via loltaku)

If someone cares enough about you

spookmaster-general:

aimingtobepurified:

They will find time to spend with you, even if it’s 5 minutes out of the day. “Busy” or not.

YES

NO

It’s just not true.

If the trust is reciprocal, than you don’t need to talk every day. Sometimes people are busy. lives happen. Jobs happen. People happen. It’s harmful to friendships and relationships alike to uphold this sort of paradigm; if they care about you they will still care about you no matter how busy they are. And if you trust them you’ll know that they still care even if they can’t squeeze out some time for you. 

I love the shit out of my friends, but I haven’t seen them since July. I’ve hardly talked to them at all, whether because our schedules conflict, they’re too busy with work/I’m too busy with my mom and my personal projects, or just because I don’t have the spoons to get up, get dressed, and go out.

It’s important for people to realize that a lack of contact doesn’t mean a lack of love. Someone like me, who suffers from mental illness, can’t always be available to hang out with friends. I love my friends, but I’m not taking my medication right now (I’m out), and, on top of that, I’m an introvert.

We’ll get together and have fun whenever we can. Part of having friends is compromising and recognizing that you can’t always be together every day. Being friends doesn’t mean being together 24/7, or seeing each other every day, or talking every day. Some days, you might want to be alone. Some days, you just don’t get a chance to see them.

Your friendship is valid. If you love them, that’s what matters, and you’ll see them whenever you can.

So it turns out the Talking Time forums, especially the people who made the Bros. series, are Anti-GamerGate.

Can someone tell me if the majority of the Talkhaus is too? Because if so my life is just a straight up lie.

Now Loltaku, it wouldn’t be anything like that at all!

By the way, senpai noticed me again. And missed out on the free lives that accidentally wound up at the end of the video game.

All (but the last) of the dancing palm trees.

Legend has it that in the Universe Thing there is a singularity of unimaginable power. Fortunately, it seems to be content with just dancing and watching you from a distance.

Pacing

thefeelofavideogame:

Let’s talk about pacing.

Pacing is probably the number one biggest concern you should have if you’re making a narrative work. We only have so much time on this tiny blue pearl, after all. If your audience is giving you their attention (and possibly their money) you should try not to WASTE THEIR…

I think devs stretch games out to try to justify selling them for $60

Rebellion’s Original Aliens vs. Predator is Free on GoG Galaxy
All’s you have to do is provide your email to GoG.com and a free copy of Aliens vs. Predator Classic 2000 is yours.
Relinquishing your contact also gives you access to the beta form of GoG Galaxy — an online gaming service aiming its double-jaws at Steam’s jugular. Though the full version of Rebellion’s FPS monster mash is being made available — including the single-player campaigns for the marine, xenomorph, and yautja (the term you never knew was used for Predators) — GoG wants players ripping each other apart in multiplayer in order to test their servers.
It’s free, and it’s modified for contemporary devices. What’ve you got to lose? Besides your life over and over again to snarling, 2000-era polygons. Get on it now because the offer is only valid for 48 hours.
