    My god, if Korg returns with Valkyrie in Avengers 4 I'll be the happiest person ever.

    I liked it a lot! Was expecting a mess, but found it surprisingly coherent and easy to follow. And it was so much fun. Very solid laughs throughout the film. I'm someone who really enjoys almost all of these films so I guess I was always going to like this. But I thought they did a great job of spending just enough time on each pair-up that it never felt disorienting. The only one that felt really underused was Captain America, although he reminded me of why I love him when he meets Groot. A+ exchange between the two. I for one am super excited for Avengers 4 now. Thoughts on where Avengers 4 is going, based on some set photos:
  3. I am not a person who has a super high threshold (or time for) frustrating games. I was expecting it to be more frantic and frustrating (and at certain portions it can defintely feel a tiny bit frustrating) but it was actually very fun and rewarding and everything is finely-tuned so that you always feel like you *can* make it in 60 seconds.

    Yeah, just looking at some of the highlights of S1, the only one that stuck out in my mind was the diner showdown. I might not be watching this very critically, it's such an easy show to just devour and have fun with because of the half-hour format. There's already one magnificent fluid-related setpiece in the new season that feels like a sequel to the Morgue. That is a great interview. What a bummer that it seems like DiGregorio had to fight the producer just to get the morgue stuff in, for example. It's a bummer the lasting impression of S2 was the final episode.. It seems like that soured what was otherwise a really fun season in my head.

    Nice! I think S2 has some awesome setpieces but it falls way too hard into its own lore butt.. Look forward to hearing what you think of the season by the end. Maybe I’m misremembering S1.. weren’t there any fun, gross, inventive setpieces in it?

    Huh, I might have to rewatch it, because I *felt* like the balance was heavily in favour of practical deadites/creatures and gore-effects, impacts. I just remember being happy when they summon a big demon from the underworld and it's actually a nicely-made costume creature. They do dip into CGI creatures later on, which mostly look rubbish.
  7. Movie/TV recommendations

    I don't think it improves much. I really liked the first season. I don't particularly feel like it looks cheap.. I guess I just *really* love seeing practical effects work/makeup stuff at a time when TV ususally goes for cheap-looking CGI. The second season was fun but sort of lost its way half-way through. Third season just started and it's fun, but I feel like I'm basically just watching it for the fun, creative practical effects by now and the occasional well-timed gag. I do like the half-hour format, meaning it doesn't have to pad out the plot too much to get from A to gross, fun, practical fight scene to B and rarely feels slow-paced.

    Don’t you mean soft distinction?

    I edited together all the random 3d stuff I've been doing for the past year.

    Video Update! MAILING LIST SIGNUP! Alright, might as well have a thread for any future updates about Tiny Tires, my Micro Machines-like arcade racing game that is slowly being put together in my free time. I've taken a big break from this game but with Unity's new multiplayer features I thought I'd take a stab at implementing some sort of online component. Turns out getting the cars synced and fooling around with them with people on the internet was easy enough. Now to.. y'know, actually implement player colors, names and.. well an actual Race with laps and shit. Come and hang out in the Idle Thumbs IRC channel where I occasionally will organise some Tiny Tires multiplayer tests every once in a while! Some vines (where you can't really see it's online, but TRUST ME IT IS!)

  15. Star Wars Episode 8

    Yes. This. That's what I was trying to say way back when I said the theme was "failure", but I guess I wasn't clear enough about it.

    Thanks Dinosaursssss! Here's a little video update showcasing the latest assets and spline track updates. The sounds are temporary and were quickly made just before I recorded the video and are literally just me making "vroom!" noises with my mouth.. It's hilarious checking out this old 2014 Tiny Tires video now. Sometimes it doesn't feel like it, but I have made *some* progress on this after all.

    If you wish *really* hard for it, it might come true! Did a bunch of editor scripting to make my life easier when making tracks. Placing elements on the track spline now works and I've added some start positions.
  22. [DevLog] Tiny Tires

    Oh hai! I've actually been working on this occasionally for the last month. Until now my track I was trying to generate rounded corners using Bezier Splines when it finally occured to me I should just.. actually just calculate a circular arc for the corners. So now the corners are sweet and smooth and perfectly round! And then I decided to finally model the bottom of the Tiny Tires car. But then.. I thought, this model is old as shit. I should just remodel the whole thing! Then I discovered Substance Painter and started doing all new textures. Two days later the game is basically the same, except now it has a sweet, new car chassis in it.
  23. Star Wars Episode 8

    I really like your take on this and agree with all of it. Very excited for this to be out on Blu-ray so I can finally watch it again.
