glimse,

Twitter was great and I think anyone who thinks otherwise either curated it to be awful or didn’t really use it at all. Your Twitter experience was defined by who you followed. There was sports Twitter, political Twitter, science Twitter, weird Twitter…there were thousands of different spheres to put yourself in.

If you followed political accounts…yeah you set yourself up for a toxic experience. But I followed funny people so my experience was great. A seemingly endless series of one liners, comics, and weird observations.

Rumor: Deadlock. Next Valve game. Previously known as Neon Prime, Citadel. Competitive third person hero-based shooter. 6 vs 6 battling on huge map with 4 lanes. Usable abilities and items. (twitter.com)

Deadlock. Next Valve game. Previously known as Neon Prime, Citadel. Competitive third person hero-based shooter. 6 vs 6 battling on huge map with 4 lanes. Usable abilities and items. Tower defense mechanics. Fantasy setting mixed with steampunk. Magicians, weird creatures and robots. Fast travel using floating rails, similar to...

glimse,

Trend?? Competitive shooters have been around forever and never went away. What are you talking about

glimse,

So that’s just a couple of games over the past decade.

And TF2 is definitely a class-based team shooter. So was Team Fortress Classic.

glimse,

What I’m saying is that zombie games, open world, and battle royals were big trends but class-based shooters have always been around. The uptick in titles after overwatch’s success happened for sure, but they were still too few and far between to really be a trend

Qualified experts of Lemmy, do people believe you when you answer questions in your field?

The internet has made a lot of people armchair experts happy to offer their perspective with a degree of certainty, without doing the work to identify gaps in their knowledge. Often the mark of genuine expertise is knowing the limitations of your knowledge....

glimse,

This was true for a brief period but the podcast bubble popped a decade ago

The artist’s name is cropped out so I can’t even go see when it was made…hopefully not recently

glimse,

HMMMM DO I WANT THE GUY THAT ISN’T GOING TO STOP OUR SLIDE TO FASCISM or the guy who is going to accelerate it??

It’s such a tough choice! I don’t know what to do! Maybe I should just not vote so the second guy has a better chance???

glimse,

Doesn’t this kind of imply taking a swing at it will result in serious bodily injury?

glimse,

I guess you might as well have fun for 5 seconds before you die!

glimse,

I had such high hopes for that game and was perfectly ok with it being a straight L4D clone with updated graphics. Unfortunately, they did not copy the parts of L4D that made it really fun and replayable.

I don’t know what they were thinking with that pvp mode. We played a round or two after beating the campaign and that was the last night my group played. Really disappointing.

glimse,

I actually kinda liked the deck system…the idea of it anyway. I didn’t love picking the cards while playing, though.

glimse,

Do the melody on vocaroo

vocaroo.com

glimse,

That sounds familiar…but the first song coming to mind is not very similar (and also newer - “Pretty In Possible” by Caroline Polachek)

It’ll think more about it today

glimse,

As I was preparing to lock up my bike, a thief ran up behind me and grabbed it! I chased him down and threw the bike into the river to reclaim my stolen property.

glimse,

Ok so I’m not saying it looks GOOD but…wow, this car is so much less ugly in black.

I have even less respect for people who buy the plain silver knowing this is an option.

glimse,

I looked it up before commenting because I thought the same thing and it seems Tesla started offering it as an option late last year

shop.tesla.com/…/cybertruck-color-paint-film

glimse,

I was a little surprised because I’ve never seen one before. I had two snarky comments lined up depending on if it was first or third party lol

glimse,

What about the aesthetic reminds you of N64? If it was light gray I’d definitely agree but it just looks industrial to me.

glimse,

Ah fair enough, it does indeed look like it belongs in Mario 64 or something. I was only picturing the console itself for some reason

glimse,

Hating olives is pretty common. So yeah, it would fit right in there!

glimse,

To make them not turn to dust in transit, they’d need to be in a hard shell sleeve wrapped in plastic like Oreos…and they’d still likely get crushed a bit.

I’m not a packaging engineer but that seems like more plastic with little added benefit

glimse,

That’s pretty much Vaudeville. The only things you can do is click on locations and talk to people, each of whom has some bit of information you need to figure out.

It’s basically an experiment to see what works and what doesn’t with the idea. I appreciate that they kept the scope small (no quests, no WASD movement) and have been implementing changes as they discover the shortfalls (like the ones I’ve mentioned). If it ever does get released as a finished game, it’ll be more like a proof of concept for other games to build off of.

glimse,

Nah because then you actually have to talk to them at lunch

glimse,

I don’t mind those unless I’m busy…but I’ll make time if it’s a topic I’m into.
