magic_lobster_party,

I played both in my childhood, and I don’t think I’ve ever returned to Tooie after I beat it first time. It’s a good game, but doesn’t have that same lasting appeal as the first game.

You touched a bit on the why: the game is too ambitious. The levels are too massive and too intertwined. Smaller isolated levels fit the collectathon format better.

I remember having lots of fun with the multiplayer though, so that’s a bonus.

If you want to continue the collectathon journey you should try out Donkey Kong 64. It’s also a game that falls under its own ambitions, but in different ways. Still a good game, but nothing beats Kazooie.

magic_lobster_party,

DK64 is sometimes accused of killing the collectathon genre. While I’m not sure if the accusations are deserved, DK64 was too ambitious with the amount of collectibles and the size of levels for its own good.

It’s still a great game. I think I prefer DK64 over Tooie overall.

Because making proper executables working on all machines is just extra maintenance work. They probably just wanted to code something and share it to the world without that extra headache.

magic_lobster_party,

It’s not if you want to compile for Windows, Linux and Mac at the same time, with x86, x64 and ARM support. Cross compiling can often be a big annoyance to set up.

And this is a Python project. Making stand alone executables for Python projects is rare.

I’m pretty sure “chat” means Twitch chat. Streamers usually asks “chat” for questions, and teenagers have adopted this vocabulary for everyday use.

magic_lobster_party,

It’s not about elitism. It’s because most developers don’t want to spend that time on the extra maintenance and QA to ensure it’s working flawlessly for the end user.

Most FOSS are just things people initially wanted for themselves, so they developed it in their spare time. Then they thought it might be neat to share the code in case someone else might find use in it, so they uploaded their work to GitHub.

If you want an exe you can always contribute to the project, or at least make a fork.

Could be like Mario 35, which was pretty fun

magic_lobster_party,

100 player survival mode could be fun. It worked for Tetris and Mario, and I can imagine something similar would work for Crazy Taxi.

As long they manage to maintain a steady player base and stay away from predatory monetary practices - which probably is just wishful thinking.

magic_lobster_party,

Side note, I’m impressed Vimm’s lair is still going strong. I remember using it to get SNES ROMs for ZSNES early 2000s.

magic_lobster_party,

Avatar 2 is still one of the most successful films of all time. Barbie and Oppenheimer did well as well.

I think the main problem is that Hollywood doesn’t have that many big blockbuster franchises ongoing. There aren’t that many new movies that attract viewers. Superhero movies are finished. Star Wars is mostly TV now. Hollywood hasn’t managed to find any replacement for these franchises.

magic_lobster_party,

According to which criteria? No doubt he’s better than Trump, but 14th place feels way too high.

magic_lobster_party,

We don’t build pyramids anymore because we’ve figured there are better things to spend the money on.

magic_lobster_party,

I’m at least happy head hunters stopped spamming my LinkedIn

magic_lobster_party,

Not too bad, but could be better.

A funny story about my not so great love life: just matched with a girl on Tinder which I managed to have engaging text discussions with and it felt quite genuine. This is rare for me, so I was happy about it.

Well, in the end it became obvious to me it was just a pig butchering romance scam when she started to talk about how she can help me invest in cryptocurrency.

I guess I’m going to be a failure in love life for a bit longer lol.

magic_lobster_party,

Thanks. I’m content with my own solitude, but I can admit the affirmation I got from this event felt nice, even though it was all stimulated.

magic_lobster_party,

Latest one for me is Disco Elysium. Didn’t really like its form of story telling. Played it for about 6-8 hours without feeling that the plot had made any meaningful progression.

The trailer was also misleading, selling it more as some form of detective thriller. Most of the dialogue is about stuff unrelated to the ongoing investigation.

I also didn’t like how some actions could randomly kill you. Oh, got a bad dice roll? Too bad, you must reread the dialogue of the past few minutes again. In the end I actively saved the game over and over again to avoid losing any progress.

magic_lobster_party,

Only time Doomguy talks in Eternal is during a flashback, and one word at the end of the second DLC. During the flashback he only says how he must kill more demons.

magic_lobster_party,

Teardown is a really solid game under the technical gimmick. It plays more like a puzzle game, but way more open ended.

magic_lobster_party,

It’s been 2667 days since Musk promised fully autonomous cross country trips: https://elonmusk.today/#autonomous-cross-country-trip

And 2954 days since he promised cross country summons: https://elonmusk.today/#cross-country-summons

magic_lobster_party,

I can’t speak from the British Commonwealth perspective, but from a Swedish perspective my opinion is this regarding having a monarch:

Yeah, it might not reflect our modern values well, but since the (Swedish) monarch is mostly ceremonial and completely unpolitical, there’s actually quite little to hate about it. They’re just the mascot of the country. There’s far more pressing issues in our country than having that confused old guy as head of state.

At least he doesn’t possess nuclear launch codes.

magic_lobster_party,

Hopefully they won’t come up with some kind of a Rust/CLI, a version of Rust with GC support.
