Either.
I seen Han first, but I like merging the exploration treasure hunter of Indiana Jones.

It was inevitable.
As all other technologically associated. If not that in particular, eventually another would take it's place. But with this existing, the same mistake wouldn't be repeated so soon and improvements made.







Yet sometimes, there are exceptions. Hard exceptions.

Random question of the day:

Do you think that the Tiger Electronic Games shouldn't have been made?

I loved those things as a kid because they were so cheap in stores and I couldn't really afford things like a DS or a PSP. Granted, my mom did buckle down and decided to start buying those things for me and my sister, but for awhile I definitely didn't own any handhelds besides one of these.

Yeah. AVGN claimed those things were the poverty version of handheld gaming, and that for a lot of people, it was either that or nothing, and that nobody minded.

Subjective.
Maybe, no, yes.

The true answer can only be given by yourself.
Free your mind.

south park is actually about the tortuous existence of being a libertarian — if anyone anywhere starts to care about anything, you have to get mad about it and say "you can't be offended by my offensive humor, it's my right, also i am very smart" because that's all you've got

also like half of the jokes are just "dude, weeeeed". ok, gen x-er.

Random question of the day:

Is South Park really as good of a social satire as people make it out to be?
I don’t personally watch the show. From what I’m told of it, at least some episodes have some some interesting points. I’ve never been a big fan of those “let’s convey our points by doing bad shit and let the people outside puzzle out our intentions” approach, though.

Because 90% of its content is faked and some subreddits are nothing but lies and smear campaigns.
Yeah, reddit is full of bubbles, but making it illegal is excessive if not outright impossible. Furthermore, discerning which are which is an effort which proves time and time again to not be something any one entity can discern. I agree that much there sucks, especially these latest policies I'm hearing about, explicitly giving people permission to post hateful content against people quote "in the majority". Nonetheless, dumb and worrysome though it might be, reddit is still a private entity and relatively fringe. I wouldn't call it a public forum the way something like facebook or twitter clearly are.

What are ya, a 1984ist?

But jokes aside sadly no. There's some of us that feel pretty much the same, but that's not going to happen. It has it's fair share of greater communities not filled with parasites and the pathetic but not always talked about. It is also where people can find and keep their friends or have new ones. This stops the idea from having a grasp to begin with. That sucks and some groups can be filled with the same idiots that cry about trivialities and thinking everything is so offensive that they want to become what they preach against and repeats history, but this isn't the way. Regardless of how a group makes it seem like it's a good cause on a surface level. To illegalize it is to set a precedent, which others will follow for their own needs. Then as has happened before, shall so it will be yet again but not for any true good cause. And in of itself, for a public forum and not a publisher, an absolute failure of it's job to do it even to a single one of it's own threads without real justification.

Understandable to want to resolve the tumor that be, and sometimes there's a whole lotta crap that really pushes ya for a joke. But that's the point. A true Chad deals with it, and gets rid of the rubbish that actually counts such as death threats or trying to force an idiology onto someone else when unprovoked. A joke of a person smites it, and won't even let a discussion take place even if it is against the topic, because somehow forgetting it will prevent it happening apparently. A clown however takes it down, the person behind it down under label regardless of intent or meaning, labels the action as righteous, and brags about it.

Don't get me started about actual jokers. You know, the good usually individual people that randomly joins a random thread or server periodically for a joke and fun. They're not the problem, only mass spam is and/or when it has an actually insultive intent. But they're equally all also thrown into the category of "undesirables" as a whole to try getting rid of. We have since lost the gusto and humor previously found upon several forums. I for one, will not join that mobbish purge. It's a bigger joke than any true joke made is, and a valid example of exactly what is complained about.

Way too many exclamation points!!!
It depends on the size of the game. Whenever you create any sort of story, including a game, you're going to put at least a bit of yourself into it simply by the nature of creating. This includes your values. If you're working on a AAA title with tens or hundreds of people contributing along with corporate meddling (e.g. God of War, Uncharted), that bit of yourself will probably get lost in the crowd, and the work will more closely reflect the wishes and values of the director or company. If you're making the entire game yourself, however, or as part of a small group (e.g. Undertale, Celeste) the game will be a better reflection of you. In addition, many smaller games and even some larger ones are created with a specific philisophical/moral theme in mind, so those games deliberately reflect the creator's values.

Does a developer's work reflect their moral viewpoints (Example: Toby Fox > Undertale)?
I would say yes and that this is true for most cultural products (including video games); most art mirrors the conditions and ideologies of the artist and (one could argue) its viewers- so i would say that all art has ideological aspects to them, however directly or indirectly.
