it doesn’t exactly work that way. unlike say, disgustilarious fetishes, it doesn’t start existing just because it can be conceived of.

You realize semiotics is one of the largest fields in academia, right?  Language evolves.  If it doesn't, it dies.

Not that it's necessarily evolving in the right direction... http://www.theatlanticwire.com/entertainment/2012/08/meet-dictionarys-new-words-f-bomb-sexting-bucket-list/55745/

Dictionaries still can't decide if it's videogame or video game either.
Sophistry, Talbain. At the time, you wanted to dress up your cynicism in the more respectable clothes of “skepticism”.

Not all compilers optimize (though this is getting much rarer than it was 20 years ago). And not all compilers that optimize do it well! :laugh:

Cruft left over from debug code can also leave puzzling artifacts, particularly if the developer was not that assembly-minded (or just didn’t care... I mean, sometimes it’s really just a few instructions on a processor that does millions a second and doesn’t mess up caching or anything).

In that case for PSG2, it’s possible that the return value wasn’t the point of that particular call to the function. It isn’t unusual to call a function that returns something when all you wanted was the function’s effect. But again, it could just be partially-dummied debug code. Only way to tell is to look and see what it does.

Time is a popular choice but there are other seed sources you can consider, because sometimes you don’t want the player to have any (reasonably easy) influence over the seed.

I don’t know what you mean by “reestablish”, but srand() just seeds the generator, and rand() keeps getting new numbers from the generator. Pretty much just set it and forget it.

Talbain I think you have a lot of good ideas about games as art.  It's just the one thing you do that annoys me, is when someone debates with you, often times you seem incapable of recognizing the point that person is making.  Instead you choose some other intangible and often times unrelated aspect of the debate to latch onto.  And then you vehemently defend that position whereas the other person keeps trying to debate the original point, which has now become lost in the illogical digression.
This one time in ’07, he argued with the dictionary ;)

The point is this board consists of many highly intelligent yet curmudgeonly dorks who just want to be the rightest of the right.

Hotline Miami is a game that is about ultraviolence for ultraviolence's sake.  Hotline Miami's not intentional about violence, but incidental.  What's more is that you're never made to feel ridiculous despite how ridiculous the game is.
okay but not everyone agrees with that assessment...

He did mention it in the title ;P

SE doesn’t really C&D fan projects left and right. I’m actually rather appalled that people in this community seem so eager to mention it. It most certainly IS a “speak of the devil” kind of thing.

Don’t be so literal. That just means that games should communicate that kind of stuff like movies do, but he doesn’t want to say “like movies do” because seriously who isn’t sick of hearing that.

I was simply tailoring a phrasing to a specific request in my capacity as a translator. My providing a translation is never necessarily an endorsement of the original statement or the translation itself ;P

My bullshit translator is suffering from extreme wear and tear so maybe someone can translate that quote for me?   
“I am not convinced that muggles can’t play most games, but we need to get more customers who aren’t neckbeards.”

As for console gaming dying, is that really true?
As we’ve known it, yes. Actually dead, no.

Let’s never forget those tragic moments when that beloved noble pulls that lever reserved for him alone that might do anything. Anything!


so today I beat a game called “Watch every episode of Star Trek”, a game so indie it only exists in somebody’s head, but I bet you could remake the whole thing from scratch if you wanted to

anyway, a great burden has been lifted

I have patented fonts in the color of purple for the use of sarcasm/sardonicism/facetiousness.  Had to beat Apple to it.
