  1. I thought of a good like, subtutle, or tagline for the 'cast. Important if True, Apocryphal if Poo Anyway I really have to try that just, roasting some garlic and spreading it on bread. That sounds great.

    Yeah I'm probably gonna get a 2DSXL (and not a switch, funnily). They come out with a new console and I get the latest rev of a 5 year old handheld instead (I mean i've never had a 3DS though)

    I was surprised but happy to see metroid news. I don't have a 3DS though, but I've considered getting one. Might for whatever the thing is. Metroid Prime isn't really the metroid I want either, but maybe they will have 2D parts? I'm not sure, ill have to see. I'm glad they remembered Metroid exists though!
  4. On my way home from work today I was walking down Mission street to the train and saw a man remote and a strange white box robot he was remote controlling crossing the street at 17th, and I thought of this podcast. Then on BART i started listening to this episode and hear the discussion of how San Francisco now just has a bunch of weird robots. That's the whole story I just loved the synchronicity

    Oh no! THis is fantastic but I just started a new job. Maybe I can find a team, but also, I've never done any gamedev. Or, not this kind. I've worked on a server backend for a networked mobile game, but that's not very transferrable to user-facing game work.

    lol I used to work in the building right next to that, every time I walked past I thought about beppo's hole

    What are we thinking re: date and time?
  8. Readerwatch 3v3 Triwizard Overwatch Tournament

    I also signed up! For anyone reading this, most of our organization around this is probably going to be done in Slack, I remember some people who weren't in there missed out on some things last time.
  9. GDC 2017 Meetup (Update: 2018 info within!!)

    I've been to Whitechapel the part of London, but not the bar near where I live, and i've been meaning to go for a while but haven't, so that sounds fantastic. Count me in.
  10. I've only played a few games with Ana on the team (I haven't played her myself). I don't think people have figured out how to use her effectively yet, she hasn't been useful in the games ive played, and also hasn't been difficult to play against.
  11. I'm working on getting better at mei... haven't really gotten the hang of using the ice block when I should, or positioning of the wall, but I like her a lot.
  12. this is deffo the best view of that, it was awesome. I didn't really do a ton that match, mostly got killed a bunch by Boodoo.
  13. I have a pretty specific memory of having an opinion based on something I heard and then completely changing my mind on it. When I was a college sophomore, I was listening to the Giant Bombcast and they were discussing Demon's Souls, mostly focusing on how bad and impenetrable it was. Later, I was at a friend's house and he had demon's souls, I mentioned that "oh that game is terrible" because I had formed that opinion based on what I thought of at the time as an authoritative voice on video games. I ended up playing it anyway, as like "haha ill play this bad game let's see how bad it is" and fell in love, it is still one of my absolute favorite games, and I've been a fan of every souls game since.
  14. WIZARD JAM 2016 // Welcome Thread

    Hey y'all. I work at a game company now but I just do backend, want to learn regular game dev but can't rn. But, if anyone wants to make some kind of multiplayer or game that otherwise involved a networked backend, with any degree of game of matching of business logic at all (leaderboards, server side content, w/e), hmu. I'll even host it. Not usually a jam thing I know, but that's what I'm good at so putting it out there.
  15. GDC '16 / SF thumbs hang out

    Hi I haven't posted in here yet, and, although I am not attending GDC, i do live here (and now even work in the games industry) so I will be down for various forms of hanging out. I'll be at the Saturday night thing, though I'm going to see the first F1 race later that night.
