fantasy writers with conlangs or fake words that still use sounds common in imperial languages aren't allowed to use mid-word apostrophes. it serves no purpose and makes your bullshit worse to say

ff 13 is like one of those RPGs clearly made by 1 person who is not a writer, that just spout expository nonsense you don't understand with no context at all nonstop

5G exists so mobile companies can tell their shareholders that the numbers are much higher now. The numbers are so much bigger, guys. thats why you should give us money so we can waste it

I want batman to hear about a crime, find that it's just a riddler thing and sigh with relief because at least its deterministic

Show thread

I call them puzzles for clarity, not as an accurate descriptor of what they are. The riddler does actual puzzles

the joker should just make Sierra adventure game puzzles in real life; which is to say create problems that are hideously contrived and can only be solved in hideously contrived ways, but because he operates in a physical reality the weird contrived nonsense he sets up always kills at least a dozen people

also characters don't really need to be deep in fiction, they just have to serve the narrative. the Joker can absolutely be compelling as a random crisis generator for hypermethodical batman

I don't think the joker should ever present coherent reasons for what he does. he shouldn't have a traumatic past or any past at all. I dont think he should strictly even be intentionally criminal. I think the joker should just be someone who continually does things with no clear connective logic or purpose

doom eternal spoilers, politic 

i really appreciate the narrative thread where authority and those subservient to it both excuse industrialised genocide and blame the Doom Guy for it, despite the fact he is trying to stop it, and him trying to stop it has no effect on whether they do it, and they could just not do it.
It's like how in real life when you point out that a politician is murdering people for no reason and a bunch of scum come out the woodowork to tell you well maybe you shouldn't have been so rude to Oldmoney J. Turbohitler it's not his fault that he had to kill all those natives in order to poison their sacred land sucking some inefficient fuel out from under it with a massive dangerous machine

on one hand I'm glad for fairly standardised computers with similar layouts from the RPI0 up to weird carbon fibre water cooler computo-pyramid from alienware
but on the other hand im gonna miss weird architecturally unique machines


trying to figure out good AI behaviour primitives to do

as a non-american, theres a lot of things in The Simpsons which i thought were surreal jokes, but turned out to actually be real and normal in america
