Following up on my earlier post about freeware RPGs, “Pom Gets Wifi” was released five days ago and has already become the most downloaded game on rpgmaker.net with over 25,000 downloads. For comparison, the three games I mentioned earlier (1, 2, 3) ranged from 4,000-8,000. I’ll have to try it to see if it’s more than a cutesy novelty. Games I’m looking forward to? I hold out hope that Konjak will finish Iconoclasts and Fighunter will turn out another Mardek game.

I’ve been playing freeware RPGs in very different genres: Star Stealing Prince – Traditional fantasy with excellent atmosphere and a tweaked battle system where effects wear off quickly, the damage spells can cause effects, and the effect spells can cause damage. This shakes up the old battle system enough to make it interesting again. I Miss The Sunrise – Sci-fi with strong worldbuilding and characterization and a novel battle system. Lunar Wish – Comedy with a RPG tacked on. In this one the gaming is...
Anyone who claims that the fault rests entirely with one side is misguided at best. Sorry, that’s just wrong. The fault rests entirely, 100% with the Arabs. There is nothing close to moral equivalence here. The local Jews are the aboriginals. The immigrant Jews bought their land. The Jews obtained the state land from the Ottomans through treaty, by way of the British and the League of Nations, and they established a nontheistic state with equal rights for everybody. The Arabs are fighting to...
Obligatory Sluggy Obligatory Penny Arcade Quick thoughts: Dumb users bring down the reputation of everything. Half of everyone is below average. Bad drivers don’t mean cars are bad. “Twitface” is a funny term for generic social media.
Remember my question from page 1, can the Giants pitch? After all, they’re a pitching team. At the break, starter ERAs are… 3.02 – Madison Bumgarner 4.26 – Tim Lincecum 4.88 – Barry Zito 5.06 – Matt Cain 7.19 – Ryan Vogelsong There are two new starters replacing Vogelsong: 2.39 – Chad Gaudin (6 starts) 10.61 – Mike Kickham (3 starts) And the “secret weapon” Jeremy Affeldt has a respectable but not great 3.55 ERA, but let’s look at that per month: 5.79 – April 0.73 – May 5.23 – June So with...
Chocolate’s gettin’ old… vanilla just leaves me cold
Farmers Insurance commercials are dumber than Progressive’s. They even sing “dumb-dumbdumbdumb-dumb-dumb-dumb” at the end. Geico’s caveman and pig commercials are dumber than that. The first ones were plays on phrases, but the later ones made no sense.
Grumpy cat. Take a funny test? NO.
Here are some pro-Zimmerman arguments: A discussion of Florida’s law on the legally acceptable use of deadly force. This was a backwards trial where the prosecution witnesses bolstered the defense’s case. Trayvon Martin used racist terminology to refer to Zimmerman. For relevance, imagine how it would affect public perceptions of intent and probable culpability if Zimmerman had used racist terminology to refer to Martin. The state withheld evidence from the defense. The feds staged protests against...
The Bloc Quebecois, a single-issue political party devoted to the secession of Quebec as an independent French-speaking state. They used to be a major party until they took a severe beating in the 2011 elections and lost all but four of their ~50 seats in parliament.
Screenshot is from Cursed Treasure 2, a tower defense game by IriySoft. Notice the Amazon’s “charm” technique whereby removing her armor will distract your nearby towers. It’s all G-rated and Hays-compliant, but this is mildly ecchi. Very mildly ecchi. Someone could, in theory, get off on this if they really set their mind to it. I just now noticed that the game refers to “his armor” in the description of the Final Rush skill. It’s a trap? They probably have one...
He was pushing the Brotherhood’s Arabization and Islamization policies in a country that has been under European influence and/or direct control for most of the past 200 years and has had a taste of liberal values. Apparently there are enough people in Cairo who like to drink alcohol that they could organize a mass rally to give the appearance of public support for a coup. Also, the chaos of the Arab Spring crashed Egypt’s economy so people are angry about the price of basic necessities. The generals...
a silly imagedump that will die in less then a week. Like… potato salad?
The Giants are on a roll in the sense that someone stuck them in a trash can and is rolling it down a hill. Props to Bailey, maybe this will wake them up.
I think we have them under Safety Instruction Parodies.
Recursion in the C programming language, by Kernighan and Ritchie and Lovecraft. Sample: Exercise 4-13. Write a function reverse(s) which reverses the string s by turning the mind inside out, converting madness into reality and opening the door to allow the Old Ones to creep forth once more from their sunken crypt beyond time.
Nothing, in all its glory.
Brucker: The new Superman movie. The answer to my “shy guy who swears a lot” from the first page was supposed to be The King’s Speech. Here’s another one: There’s this famous guy who doesn’t like to speak but it’s really important for his job that he learns to speak.

The Snowden situation smells like a foreign intelligence operation with a public relations campaign wrapped around it. First, we have the news that falls into three categories: 1. Evidence of potential invasions of privacy whose legality may be arguable, presented without the opposing argument. 2. Accusations of clear and large-scale violations of the 4th amendment with no evidence. 3. Blatant propaganda praising Snowden as someone the public should emulate. Second, we have the manner in which the leak...
