Idle Thumbs 67: Dot Gobbler in Idle Thumbs Episodes & Streams Posted August 4, 2012 I'm amused when Jake is giving the dateline and he says "2012" as if he thinks that's my name. "It's August 3rd, Twenty Twelve!" "Stop calling me Twenty Twelve!" *** Famous asks: "I don't know if players want to have a character with lots of baggage. Maybe they want a blank slate like Gordon Freeman?" That's the last question I want to hear from a developer. I want to hear you say, "We've got an excellent idea for creating a game around this character who has lots of baggage, and we're going to polish it until it works so well that even players who don't like that kind of thing will be BLOWN AWAY (ign.com)." Actually, I don't want to hear you say that either because then the internet will just poop on you for sounding too cocky. But you should definitely be thinking that. Don't give me what I want. Give me something I didn't know I wanted until I played your game.
