Happy 2009 !!!

January 1, 2009 -

Best wishes for a fab 2009 to everyone in the GamePolitics community!

I'm taking Mrs. GP to a movie today (Milk), then dinner with the folks and maybe catch some of the Rose Bowl (rooting for Penn State).

How are you spending your day?

Heh, I got RickRolled on New Year's Eve only a matter of minutes before midnight (maybe over an hour, since I don't remember when it happened), and I laughed harder than I had in a good long time.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Spent a good portion of the time watching the all day Looney Toons marathon on Cartoon network, one wonders why they show tom and jerry regularly yet never show looney toons.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Spent the day getting my head around the Java Observable Interface and trying to bend my old Z80 head around Object-Orientated programming.

It's a very useful way of coding, but so easy to let things fly out from under the radar, you have to keep a close eye on the design specs.

I think languages can get to a stage where they become too inter-connectible, for example, Java interfaces make for a useful tool, but unless you design with them in mind from the start, they can cause more confustion than assistance. This is not good when you are a University student who is learning the language whilst writing a project, since time is limited and it's a pain to keep going back and re-writing sections based on newly gained information about the language.

From what I recall the Swing interface doesn't implement Hardware graphics acceleration, so I might also have to learn JOgl in order to do the main screen of my Uni project, yet more to add to the ever-growing list...

I'm glad I'm not the only person that Swing engenders that reaction from ;)

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

My day was spent wondering why instead of going into the nice warm house, I slept in the backseat of my car. I blame 2008.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Played a little GTA IV, but mainly watched the Rocky movies.

I watched LSU whip Georgia Tech 38-3 in the Chick-Fil-A(Peach) Bowl last night.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Well, I just finished one file that needed to be transcribed for work and am going ot put off the other one until tomorrow -- it's the holiday, I can do that!  Also, just got Guitar Hero World Tour for Christmas from my hubby, so I'll most likely play a few rounds of that.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Playing video games and watching bowl games (including the Rose Bowl).

I'm not a big movie-theater person, but I would like to see "Frost/Nixon" sometime.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Frost/Nixon makes me laugh.. Frost has a reputation here in the UK for being a decrepit old senile presenter, and in the film he's some trendy young go-getter. xD

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Well it's not set in modern times, Nixon died in the 90s. According to wikipedia the interviews it was based off of took place in 1973.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Yeah I know.. but it's like imagining your parents as children. Just doesn't work in your mind.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

I got beaten up and had my glasses nicked on New Years Eve, so mostly I've been loafing around, squinting at Prince of Persia.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

bummer... on the beatdown, not the game...

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Heh thanks.. chance of me getting the specs back though, a couple of people helped us out and one of them got hospitalised; so the police are getting involved, taking a statement from me tomorrow.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Working. Yey, it sucks, but i do get paid double time and and half for it.

Playing Tetris. Just like how I celebrated the Obama victory. Damn I promised I wouldn't do that. Oh, and I might go see Milk, looks pretty awesome.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

One thing for sure; I won't be going to see Sean Penn's newest shitty movie.

Visiting some relatives, and otherwise relaxing.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Reading GamePolitics of course.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

I'm probably going to spend today, and my day off tomorrow, working on leveling my paladin in WoW to 80.  I should get to 73 by today, and with any luck 74 by the end of the weekend.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Well, I have to replace the breaks on my van, finish setting up my dev server among other things.

TechnogeekYet, you're going to be hard-pressed to find anyone other than insecure 2EDGY4U teenagers seeing it as anything other than an extremely fun game.05/25/2015 - 8:36pm
TechnogeekSplatoon's probably the best example at this point. Gameplay-wise, it's a team-based third-person shooter with a significant online component. It's rated E10.05/25/2015 - 8:36pm
TechnogeekThe silliest thing about most of the Nintendo hatred is that they may be the last company that interprets "family-friendly" as meaning "fun for more than just the really young kids".05/25/2015 - 8:33pm
ZippyDSMleeWell it could be worse, like skyrim out of the box, a shame DAI dose not have that level of editing...05/25/2015 - 5:58pm
Zenpretty well without getting "nasty". Many people are disappointed in the decision and the about face on the status of the games development.05/25/2015 - 4:22pm
ZenEvery market has horrible people...but being like this towards all of them in a group is not a way to garner support and can make people more hostile towards you. Ironically his response was to someone that wanted to state a disagreement, but worded it05/25/2015 - 4:22pm
Goth_SkunkAs demonstrated by Ian's remarks, that 'market of possible fans' is apparently negligible.05/25/2015 - 4:18pm
Zeninformation while other versions had everything talked about openly.05/25/2015 - 4:15pm
ZenYeah, I've read through it and wanted to make sure I had it quoted correctly. I get there are issues, but this is horribly unprofessional and just burning a market of possible fans..many of which supported them and were waiting while getting little to no05/25/2015 - 4:15pm
Goth_SkunkOh wow. That's not even misquoted, he actually said that. Though for additional context in previous pages, he truly does not think highly of Nintendo console owners, and claims that in the industry, he's not alone.05/25/2015 - 4:12pm
ZenI also took a screenshot of the statement in case it is taken down (via my Twitter): https://twitter.com/zenspath/status/60293960536562483205/25/2015 - 4:05pm

ZenProject Cars basically canceled for Wii U, Slightlymad Studios Head, Ian Bell, states "Yup, and if you need to pass this on, we really dislike Nintendo users" on Forum to Wii U players waiting for the game and disappointed in the news.05/25/2015 - 4:03pm

Goth_SkunkGranted, most of that feedback is going to be vicious, but if a novice dev knows full well not to expect their hastily strewn together game as the next Grand Theft Auto, such curmudgeonly feedback shouldn't deter them from their ultimate goal of becoming05/25/2015 - 3:45pm
Goth_SkunkAdditionally, Steam is a platform whereby these novice devs can showcase what they were able to put together and see what kind of feedback they can get from the community.05/25/2015 - 3:44pm
Goth_SkunkI don't think it's wrong for a novice dev to want to recover any losses from people willing to pay money for what they have produced, either. After all, every game dev had to start somewhere.05/25/2015 - 3:41pm
