:/ our power meter was ripped out of our wall. one of the wires is draped across the driveway into a tree - it could have been the wind but like, right off the wall?? there were no big branches around as if something fell on a wire hard enough to pull it out..

in depth last of us 2 trailer review: Show more

extremely mixed reaction on cyberpunk 2077... the world is cool looking, but i'm so tired of gritty man with gun with ambiguous backstory

as someone who doesn't play elder scrolls, that trailer is hilarious. it's a mountain.

as someone busting my ass to make it out here: Lord grant me that level of iconicism

i was playing overwatch as Winston and got potg, and someone said i did good!

@vivaizix i think storytelling falls short if every interaction is a puzzle piece or a metaphor. there needs to be emotion, reason, and consequence.

on the other hand, a delve straight into the cheesy aspects of those movies is all good too, just, do it to this trope please.

@vivaizix the final girl trope also relies on believable interactions between her and others, and real relationships and background which makes you care about her survival. another tough sell for popular horror games.

@vivaizix is it because films were/are known (regardless of personal immersion) as being the director's vision, or the viewer's story, so it is safer to put a woman through hell, when it could be easier for people/men to objectify her?

it is especially hard for horror games to properly have a believable female protagonist when they often suffer from trying to make the main character to 'relatable to everyone' (ie, the developers idea of everyone, a white dude)

@vivaizix despite horror games growing along with and constantly borrowing back and forth from films, it's really the one big theme that is HUGE in horror films and barely ever touched in horror games

it suddenly intrigued me that 'the final girl' theme hasn't translated from horror films to horror games.

@eishiya wanted to thank you again <3 and give you a beep with this remake. i followed your tips and relooked at my references while redoing it, without quite following your example so i could get an idea of it on my own.

finally through a huge chunk of editing this. still some tweaks to do but looks lovely.

the game i'm most proud of -

β€œa long time alone” is a game about watching an eternity pass, about progression and entropy, and states of mind.

i used to play basically pictionary on a site called isketch, which is still up but hasn't worked for me in years
i tried a new similar one called doodle or die, some of it can be shitty but a lot of it's neat, it's like a game of telephone but with describing drawings + drawing them
this one killed me
