  1. I'm tempted to take a crack at Jake's generated Frasier idea, well the text-only part -- so the simplest part. The idea of feeding the original script back into the generator with Frasier's lines removed and asking it to guess them might make for a nice middle ground between silly nonsense output and the actual script. But my beefy GPU is busy mining Reddit's new Garlic based cryptocurrency... What a world we live in.
  2. It sounds like you already decided to launch a brand new show instead of keeping this feed. And that you took some feedback earlier? I guess I'll chime in anyway. Many of my favorite podcasts have completely gone off the rails from the original format/topic/genre and that's cool. Would probably prefer just keeping the existing feed. Whatever though.
  3. Episode 367: Bite-sized Strategy

    I think you guys wrote off Clash Royale too quickly. It's a 3 minute Lords Management/RTS game. Perfect little bite sized strategy. The f2p stuff never prevents you from playing a match. Matches are real time and PvP. And most importantly, my personal experience is that there's absolutely no impulse to ever consider paying any money for it because it would only raise the equilibrium point I hit on the ladder. Unlike a game like Hearthstone where I can make perfect copies of pro decks if I just put in a little more money, I will never max out my Clash Royale cards since it would take something like $20,000 dollars so there's no reason to even try. Paying money just means you hit an equilibrium point on the ladder slightly higher. I strongly dislike any f2p game that has me constantly wondering when and if I should put money in so this works out surprisingly great. Now Clash of Clans and Mobile Strike and those others are dreck.

    Volt Disruptors still don't have a cooldown as far as I can tell. There is also new item the DLC adds which is halfway between a volt and a neuro, it uses a certain amount of power per armor penetration needed, and does have a cooldown though.

    The DLC adds a couple extra days if you have it enabled, which nearly doubles the playing time of the campaign. As I understand it - I haven't reached the end myself.
  6. Invisible Inc.

    This game is just fantastic. I started on Beginner, but at Day 2 I restarted the game on Experienced, and the difficulty is pretty solid for learning the game with the three rewinds. I did start with the DLC and I kind of wish I hadn't, so I could have played one short campaign and then done the longer campaign on Expert, but so it goes. I'm sad that it doesn't seem very popular - I can't even find anyone streaming it on twitch and I think the permadeath and tension would make it an exciting game to watch. This forum is also the only gaming forum I've seen active discussion on it, other than the Steam forums.

    I think the UI might be hard to see on a TV, unless you can force it to run at 720p or something?

    This game is free this weekend on Steam, and on sale. I'm loving what I've played so far.
  9. Designer Notes 13: Jamie Cheng

    I love his chess analogy. You wouldn't play a game of Chess (or soccer, or Civ for that matter) and if you happen to lose the game, you don't think "well since I lost, I wasted all that progress in the game and now I have to play the whole game again and catch up." But that's how people treat many games where loss is a possible outcome or even inevitable.

    Wonderful post. You should combine your recent comments into a medium article or something. I can't even count the number of hot takes I'm seeing this week on pc culture run amok, the same pundits going back to the story multiple times in the same week. For me, the issue thing was summed up by someone on twitter with: "If I got into an argument with my condominium manager would it make national news?"
  12. Heroes of The Storm Thumb ID swap

    Azzo#1265. NA Server. Playing way too much of this game.
  13. Hopefully this continues to it's logical conclusion and the show continues to mirror the structure of the first season, because that would means the next episode is a time jump 17 years into the future. The rest of the series takes place in a dystopian cyberpunk 2032. Vinci is a corporate free-commerce zone fully independent from the United States. Everyone's smoking ecigs and "robot dick" is no longer just an expression -- it was foreshadowing.
  14. Her Story

  15. I've now played more Hots than any other Lords Management. The short games really help take the sting out of all the faults. Just about ready to jump into Hero League, though I can only play maybe 3 heroes competently. I find I'm way less annoyed by the free-to-play stuff than I expected. My inclination is just to play the same hero over and over again regardless!
