  1. I think there's another side to this auto-generated merchandise. My previous job title was "Systems Tester", and at one point I started getting these ads on facebook: Job titles on facebook actually have their own pages, so presumably this tshirt store is just scraping facebook for job titles, creating the post/tshirt, and then purchasing an ad targeted at people who have that job listed on their facebook profile. Most of them don't get any hits but occasionally there's one with a comment where someone is tagging all their work friends. I guess sometimes people also put dumb things as their job title on facebook though:
  2. Jurassic World Evolution - Nick's GOTY.cx 2018

    The only way this could be more of an Idle Thumbs game is if the map of your park is a piece of paper on a 3D-modelled clipboard.

    You know when you're filling out a web form and you accidentally hit back on the page, or close the tab, and all the text you entered is lost? Lazarus Form Recovery saves all the text you entered so you can instantly refill the form. If you use any software like JIRA then this thing is an absolute lifesaver. There are firefox and safari versions as well.
  4. Citymapper is incredibly useful for getting around big cities with public transport. I just moved to London and it's been a huge help. I'd warn anyone who wants to use it that because it's using your mobile data and your GPS it'll drain your battery very quickly, even while your phone is suspended. If you're planning on using it you should probably get a backup battery charger for your phone.

  6. One thing I haven't heard talked about much that I really like is how everyone on Talos 1 has a name. This is exactly the sort of game that could have repeated alot of lazy environmental storytelling tropes involving corpses, but they've put so much care into presenting the game world and a big part of that is acknowledging that every dead body you find was a person involved in the story in some capacity. It tells you far more about the world to see the bodies of people who were clearly running to the shuttle bay when they died, than the old Fallout trick of putting a corpse next to a pistol and a bottle of whisky. It seems small, but in this sort of game that's absolutely a detail you need to get right, and they've clearly spent alot of time thinking about it.
  7. WIZARD JAM 5 // Welcome Thread

    These dates match up perfectly when I'm selling my PC and moving across the country, so I'm going to sit this one out. But if anyone needs any miscellaneous assets/voicework I'd be happy to help!
  8. Jurassicanji reminded me that I was also a garbage child who filled my creative writing exercises with creatures from Final Fantasy 8.

    You also get alternate history texts in the beginning of episode 4. I don't think you get them anywhere else, but those were the only two places I checked.
  10. Endorsements from Thumbs Readers

    I'd like to co-endorse this. I'd never tasted miso soup until today, but I tried making it on a whim and it's delicious. Plus, once you've got the basics, you can use it as the soup for a ramen bowl.
  11. (Screenshots from fourth dungeon) Occasionally Yusuke says stuff like this and it slays me.
  12. There are probably already threads about previous incarnations of Prey, but there doesn't seem to be one about the Prey that's actually being released next week. This isn't Space Cherokee or Space Bounty Hunters, this one seems like a spiritual successor to System Shock 2. There's a demo on PS4 and Xbox One (But not PC unfortunately) that lets you play the opening section. Some thoughts after playing it:
  13. Post your face!

    There's a map of the world in the background. The "world" of course being planet Earth, where most science fiction was written.
  14. If everyone is planning to write Hey Ya, then the odds are that when you go back to being a baby, someone older than you will beat you to it. Ideally you'd pick multiple songs and hedge your bets. On the other hand, that's a really fun (if convoluted) plot for a film. Twelve people from all across the world have gone back in time, and they're all racing to remember the lyrics to Hey Ya and bring them to Andre 3000 before any of the others.
  15. Crota 2Day: A Destiny 2 Forum Thread

    Here's a teaser. It's a trailer for the trailer! The full thing is coming on thursday.
