Let's hope they never export the Gem to Russia.

My 9 month old daughter might be entertained by such a thing.

You might want to redact that sentence.

Not really PLAYING a game, but I did get the draw code and movement code functional in Boolean RPG again. Now I just have some abstraction/interfacing concerns to deal with on one of the classes and then I can re-implement Lua and do the scripting system.

And THEN I should have enough in place to start making a single-level game.

DQ8 was still in my PS2 and that's a bad thing because it means I haven't played a PS2 game in over a month.

My PS2's at home and I haven't played it since sometime in early October.

Anyway I think I got a new highscore in Rogue. Goddamn vaults. I ALMOST got away, too, except for a centaur/minotaur/something blocking my retreat. Fucker.

Make it like Nocturne where you get 8 skills and that's fucking all you ever get.

SDL. Also it was actually in an issue with me defining a destructor to free the SDL_Surface without defining a copy constructor that would, er, ensure that the SDL_Surface was getting passed by value instead of by reference, so that when the destructor ran, it wouldn't delete something in use.

However I'm not sure if you can pass SDL_Surfaces by value.

Rogue is interesting.

I've mentioned this before but in really oldschool IF -- Zork and Adventure in particular -- there was a trend to view the games not as stories but as... a kind of simulator. A model. A system of interactions.

This has not, unfortunately, really been in vogue for some time. It also never really entered mainstream RPGs on the whole. A few--Ultima 7 comes to mind--come up, but...

Rogue is a very pure distillation of this idea. And it applies to other well-developed roguelikes as well, but Rogue, in particular, has a very clear and well-defined sort of world logic to it, that does cause it to behave more like a very internally consistent simulator than just an outright game.

I need to keep this in mind when designing that game I'm working on myself. Rulesets, interactions, and a consistent world model.

R.E.M. - Camera. Reckoning as a whole, really.

03:54   Mesh   I got this CD the summer my grandpa was in the hospital, before he died.
03:54   Mesh   never listened to it much then.
03:54   Mesh   wasn't really into it.
03:55   Mesh   that's sort of weird, going back and listening to a CD you got six years ago but never listened to much.
03:55   Mesh   You have SOME memories tied to it, slightly.
03:55   Mesh   But not enough to have anything... meaningfully attached.
03:55   Mesh   It feels very gappy.

I've lived my whole life surrounded by rust belt collapses, factory shadows, and the ghosts of the Black Swamp. I don't care much for political dramas -- they don't speak to me. I want to see an RPG without grandiosity. Where the main character's only goal is to find a reason why his life's just a long sigh and a tired slouch. No heroes. No larger-than-life villains. Just rock quarries, refineries, junk yards, highway, and field.

You know. A game about raging at the sky when there's nothing left on earth worth getting mad at.

Preferably without awkward half action-RPG/half repainted ATB mechanics.

Also FFXII needs more nipples.
