    • D&D for days

      3 years ago

      Sax

      So back in March I started playing D&D on the reg and it might be the most fun I've ever had playing a game in my life. If you've never tried it, I highly recommend it. I just found a group of people who meet weekly at a comic shop and they're all amazing people who have helped me learn and grow as a player.


      Since then I've decided to try my hand at DMing and that's actually quite fun too. Since starting to DM for @FableRunner4 (and soon @hlawlinat0r4) I've been having fun with different uses of social media to augment our game. The most fun I'm having is with twitter where I basically start drinking and see what sort of shit I come up with. All of which will become cannon at some point. I'm going to probably keep this up until it gets me into trouble. If you'd like to see what I mean: www.twitter.com/CoppingFeelsLLC

      Now I'm 27... So I think that gives me a +1 to wisdom, but for some reason I must have triggered a trap because I now have a -1 to Perception checks when not wearing glasses (My vision has suddenly changed).


      Oh well, take the good with the bad.

      Hey folks,


      So I went out to see a great band a few weeks ago and ended up really enjoying the band that was playing before them. They're called Polyphia and they are of the heavy jam rock variety. Take a listen if you're interested in expanding your musical horizons.

      I want to start by saying I loved the movie. Given a limited budget and the amount of community push it took to get the movie off the ground, I enjoyed the final product and thought it was kept fairly true to the Deadpool universe.


      If you haven't seen the movie and plan to, I wouldn't read this post. I may or may not ruin things for you.





      (Intentionally left blank as not to spoil the movie)




      One thing that bothers me about the movie is the ending. For anyone who has read the comic books, Deadpool rarely (if almost never) finds resolve. If anything goes his way, it's more a product of the previous problem has exploded into a hell-fire and no longer poses a threat to him than prince charming saves the day and he gets the girl. So the ending although cute and nice, just doesn't seem like a Deadpool ending to me. I would have expected some last ditch effort by the villain to have killed Vanessa. That could have been leveraged into a second movie where it plays more on Deadpool's obsession with death and why he sees it as a tempting mistress.



      My other issue with is was the lack of multiple voices going on in his head. I figure they could have added the voices into the moments when he broke the 4th wall to add some more flavor. Maybe this is meant to come later, but I think it's a key part of who Deadpool is; which is something I think the movie lacked.


      Otherwise it was a good movie, I still will be buying it for my collection. Deep down I'm hoping that Hollywood doesn't misread its success and try to turn all Superhero movies to R-ratings. For Deadpool it makes sense, for Batman v Superman it doesn't (take the hint Waner Bros.)

    • Pit People Prediction

      3 years ago

      Sax

      So I have no idea if anybody will see this because I don't know if any of my friends on here still use the site (except for @Raf, that dude rocks), but I have something that is exciting me and I'd like to put it out into the ether.


      For those who don't know, The Behemoth is developing a new game. You may recognize that name from their other games like Alien Hominid, Castle Crashers, and BattleBlock Theatre. These games are all fantastic and the explore a different style of game play with each installment (beat-em up button masher, RPG, Puzzler respectively). Their next installment has been in development since 2013 after BattleBlock Theatre (BBT) was released. It was formerly titled "Game 4" until last year when the Behemoth landed on the title "Pit People"; which is set to be their stab at a turn-based tactics and strategy game. I have been waiting for this game to hit the market ever since it was announced in 2014 and have been following the news updates religiously since then.


      The reason I'm so excited is because I have a prediction for when this game will finally come out, and based on my calculation it should be this year! Here's the logic:


      Yesterday The Behemoth ran 3 articles (well it's really 2 b/c one is from a French company and who can read that shit?) from companies they invited to play their demo and write about it for The Xbox Spring Showcase. Their blog has confirmed that there will be a closed beta this year, but more specifically one of the articles states that the closed beta will happen sometime this summer.


      "But Brad, it's just a beta. That doesn't mean the game is going to be ready soon."


      Au contraire, mi amigo (Spanish & French in the same sentence. And Kanye said it couldn't be done*). Let's take a look back at what happened with BBT. The Behemoth claimed that BBT was the most developed game they had to date before they brought it into beta testing. They have made the same claim for Pit People. BBT had it's closed beta test slated for February/March of 2013. Due to how far along the game was in development when they hosted the beta test, The Behemoth was able to release the game to the Xbox community on April 3, 2013. Which is a turn around time of approximately 1 month from beta!


      So now we have to make a few assumptions:

      1) 1 month is a very quick turn around time from beta to launch. Let's build in some cushion and assume 2-3 months lag from Beta to Launch

      2) The beta date will occur in the "summer", so let's go with the midpoint and say it'll happen in July

      3) Finally, let's assume that The Behemoth isn't lying about this being their most developed game pre-beta to date


      If my assumptions are reasonable, then we can reasonably expect to see Pit People launching sometime in Q3 of this year!!!!!!!!!!!!


      This is why I'm excited.

      I've put in almost 4 days of playing time since it has launched. I'm sure that's not at the top end of the scale for the truly die-hard gamers, but 4 days is a lot of time.


      That being said, the game is fantastic and I love it. What are you guys playing these days?

      This is true.

      The second half I noticed just kept leaning to calling out one person rather than keeping the subjects unknown so I figured I'd leave it out until I could work that bit out, lol

      It's def been kept though. I love re-reading old versions of my poems. ^_^

    • saygoodnight

      Thanks ^_^

      I miss writing poems. I've been so consumed with writing reports for work, a business plan for ACID & storyline for ToaW that when I do finally find the time to write a poem, I'm so sick of writing that I can't find the power to write out what I feel.

      That's part of why only half was posted today, lol.
      The other half I'm still not pleased with but it's all I could come up with today so it's been filed away for a later revise

      Not too bad. Thanks for asking. :D

      I nearly failed my first one and did better on the second one (both were multiple choice).
      This one I got an 84 on and it was short answer so I'm improving. But I get frustrated because I don't usually make low grades. I mean, I made all A's (except one B) on my philosophy papers last semester and made a 106 on the exam, but psychology and the amount of studying I have to do is running me into the ground lol.

      But now I know what I need to do so I'll be fine.
