minutiae Posted 2012-04-06 00:20:45 by Jim Crawford
Mar 01
  • Virt's FX4 disk debuting at 10 tonight on Arecibo Radio. biglionmusic.com/...
  • RT @konjak If you had to write "queue" being yelled, which vowel would you extend? #hypotheticalquandries
  • You know you're doing interactive storytelling right when players ask "is this actually a video game?" arstechnica.com/g...
  • The sooner we can distinguish between "games" and "interactive storytelling" as two independently viable media, the better off we'll be.
  • The ubiquitous hybrid form that tries to do both has produced some awesome stuff, but more often than not one half drags the other way down.
  • RT @TNG_S8 Q's back: he's wearing scuba gear and needs Picard's help dumping his girlfriend. Barclay accidentally locks himself outside the ship.
  • Man near me says "hey baby" to his phone. Woman in front of me looks back in my direction, mildly alarmed. We make eye contact. God damn it.
  • Oh, er, FX4 is just out already anyway. Downloadable as NSF! ubiktune.org/rele...
  • @polpo @textfiles All's well that ends well!

Mar 02

  • Paypal cracking down on the BDSM fiction market. Buh? m.zdnet.com/blog/...
  • Had I read this short story about Adsense-based surveillance in 2007, when it was written, I'd've called it ridiculous. blogoscoped.com/a...
  • "Why Anti-Authoritarians are Diagnosed as Mentally Ill." The Saul Alinsky anecdote here is awesome, if irrelevant. madinamerica.com/...
  • RT @checker The difficulty ramp from teaching a computer to blow up a spaceship to teaching it to pick up a book is absurd. It's sitting right there!
  • I get that the point of a social site is the community, and the community is on Pinterest. I get that. *Why* is the community on Pinterest?
  • RT @badmachinery Recent TNG commission produced in collaboration with @TNG_S8 flickr.com/photo....
  • @MammonMachine Maybe if developers gussied up rock-paper-scissors *even more*, it would become a fun single player game?
  • For a week or so I've had unexplained stinging pain alternating with limb-waking-up tingling in my left shoulderblade. So that's worrisome.
  • @benprunty Had no idea he still existed! ducker.org/~jrodm...
  • "North Korea halts nuclear programme in return for US food aid." aljazeera.com/new...
  • @MammonMachine Yeah, and arguably Starcraft *is* RPS further gussied-up. But fighting games are *so* inherently RPS, that if you e.g. took
  • @MammonMachine their control scheme and put it in a brawler, it would become something else entirely.
  • "YouTube's Content ID Disputes Are Judged by the Accuser" waxy.org/2012/03/...

  • Finally, someone's addressing the insidious cat-router problem. i.imgur.com/vRyvS...

  • I *love* how they wrote in an analogous word-stumble to the one Vincent made in the hallway when explaining the dangers of foot massages.
  • @Eliot_L Every 8-fingered cartoon character is bad sci-fi now. Thanks a lot.
  • South Bay Game Jam soon! Hoping to get the less-spoilery half of Frog Fractions complete enough to play through today.
  • HEY GUYS PROGRAMMING IS FOR COOL KIDS NOW. I"M GONNA GO SLAM A JELL-O SHOT AND GROPE SOME FAKE BOOBS. sfgate.com/cgi-bi...
  • @mrasmus @Satchamobob What if they spelled it "Krush Kode"?
  • RT @Vectorpark Protip: If you know a movie character's "555" phone number, you can call and interrupt him in the middle of a scene.
  • @Satchamobob @mrasmus ... or a Loading Ready Run cover band.
  • Added to Frog Fractions bug tracker: "refruiters going crazy in space"
  • Overheard: "Learn to spell real words while getting rained on by bullets."
  • Overheard: "May contain traces of grandma."

Mar 04

  • So much progress on Frog Fractions today. It is totally in a demoable state, if I seemed reluctant to show it to you before.
  • @benprunty Figured out where the arrows were coming from in the second loop! Those were the arrows you hadn't hit the first time around.
  • Had a great discussion with Francisco Cerda earlier today. He pointed out that Jamestown's music has a big advantage over most game scores:
  • With fixed length levels, each level's score can be an actual song, with dramatic structure, rather than an indefinitely-repeating loop.
  • (I also witnessed Francisco Cerda sign what he said was his first fan autograph today. A surprisingly emotional moment for all involved.)

Mar 05

Mar 06

  • Bioware heard you bitch about mining, and instead you have to play online multiplayer and buy DLC to get a good ending. pcgamer.com/2012/...
  • @thealawson Yeah, everyone would probably just assume it's a porn site anyway.
  • RT @rstanek This is your occasional reminder that the autism-vaccine link was faked, and that vaccines save lives: cnn.com/2011/HEAL...

  • P.S. build your own and let me know how it goes. brmlab.cz/project...
  • A year and a half later, I finally figured out the "statement" I was trying to make with Futility Pong:
  • Even if your interaction has no impact on the outcome, the mere fact of interactivity can still be crucial for the game's emotional effect.
  • (If someone figures out what I meant with Futilitris please let me know.)

Mar 08

  • Doing audio work for Frog Fractions tonight. Looking for a certain command line audio tool that might not exist. Good thing I can code.

Mar 09

  • Sleep still basically doesn't make sense to me.
  • RT @SorenJohnson Irrelevant tutorial messages cost us the player's trust. Future messages might be ignored. #gdc
  • RT @westquote Hey everybody! My GDC talk is at 2:30 today in North Hall 130. It's about continuous prototyping - join me! :)
  • If your robot manufacturing process necessitates the occasional murder, the R&D guys fucked up real bad. youtube.com/watch...
  • P.S. If your robot R&D necessitates the occasional murder, your PhD program fucked up. Shit needs to be provably nonsentient at every step.
  • RT @ForneusLex I wish that Ruby would allow is_an?() as an alias to is_a?(), just to slake my OCD. You guys have no idea how much this bothers me.
  • @ForneusLex Just slap a C preprocessor build step in there and you can #define it yourself!
  • @_peterdn I don't know! Hopefully the grad students making mathematical models of problem-solving general intelligence will, though.
  • @_peterdn It's going to be a lot easier to think objectively about the human mind once we've got a working model of it :)
  • MOBA players say the community is getting friendlier. My theory: you're getting better at MOBA games, so the community is nicer *to you*.
  • Half an hour into Asura's Wrath. Pretty goddamn amazing. Between the barely-interactive machinima scenes they have manga-style interludes.
  • "Epic Rap Battles of History" These are surprisingly well-made, for an idea so bald-facedly pandering and on-the-nose. youtube.com/playl...

Mar 10

  • Teenagers have no money, but somehow they become loyal lifelong game, film and music consumers. How does that happen? PIRACY AND USED SALES.
  • Actually successfully stopping piracy and used game sales will absolutely kill games as we know them -- fifteen years from now.
  • Goddamn, but I would love to see a game that tries to do mechanically what Asura's Wrath does with scripted fight sequences.
  • Just added two major features to Frog Fractions in under 3 hours. Have I mentioned how impressed I am with Flash/AS3 as a dev platform?
  • @xobs My experience with it pre-AS3 was pretty miserable. So it's only been good for a few years at most.
  • RT @KayinNasaki Dys4ia makes me realize my issue with most art games is that they never have anything to be honest and sincere about... but Auntie does!

Mar 11

  • "The 25 Most Awkward Cat Sleeping Positions" buzzfeed.com/paws...
  • Anna Anthropy makes you feel it. (It being gender dysphoria.) newgrounds.com/po...
  • @_peterdn It seems to me more and more programming these days is done by people who aren't intimately familiar with the tools they're using.
  • @_peterdn Even by people like me, who've been coding for half their lives, it feels like a luxury when a new project uses familiar tools.
  • @_peterdn And so I think there's an argument to be made that maybe "dangerous if abused" isn't safe enough. Most abuse comes from ignorance.

  • "Japanese researchers build a gun capable of stopping speakers in mid-sentence." No, not that kind of gun! technologyreview....
  • Goddamn, Killer 7 is gorgeous. Too bad the good stuff is all hidden behind terrible play mechanics and level design. deadendthrills.co...
  • I could say the same thing about No More Heroes. Or 99% of video games, really. Why is it we can't press a button to skip gameplay again?
  • @TiffanyTurrill I know, it's weird! Actionscript 3 is a decent language and the Flash 10 API is a decent API now! Where's the hidden camera?
  • Journey, Asura's Wrath, Dear Esther, Dys4ia: what a great month for "games" that shouldn't have to pretend to be games to reach an audience!
  • RT @Johnicholas @mogwai_poet Forced artificial scarcity works. By locking narrative in challenge-gates of dexterity, you find it better than it would be.
  • @Johnicholas Absolutely true. But notably, interactivity by itself *also* works. E.g. Dys4ia. I hold that it would be a terrible "movie."
  • I've come to the depressing conclusion that the dual beard is just not sustainable. Can anyone direct me to a qualified beard consultant?

Mar 13

  • Frog Fractions playtest session with @westquote basically changed my life.
  • @mrfb If only! That, I could cope with. Not sustainable as in: I can't make it look good and not also slowly kill it.

Mar 15

  • Gamespot acquires Giant Bomb. So, um, that's kind of fucked up. neoseeker.com/new...
  • RT @MammonMachine Remember: It's the publishers forcing the unreasonable weight on metacritic, and then blaming journalists for ending jobs.
  • Morality isn't universal, like physics; it's the nebulous system of rules each community builds around its collective sense of what's right.
  • A culture can fairly be judged only by its own moral standard. With that out of the way, this culture is way fucked-up: news.bbc.co.uk/2/...

  • One pattern I've noticed talking to Google employees is that they tend to assume that everyone at least *knows* someone who works at Google.
  • (After all, everyone *they* know knows someone who works at Google.)

Mar 16

  • RT @dresdencodak American comics are bizarely mono-genre. Imagine if 95% of bookstores only sold pirate romance, with every other genre labelled as ?indie.?
  • RT @dresdencodak Novelists wanting to do historical fiction or other non-pirate romance books still could do so, but Pirate Romance is still paying the bills
  • RT @dresdencodak And of course, when you tell someone you write books, they always say ?That?s cool, but I?m really not into pirate romance.?
  • Kickstarter users gives another sequel to a beloved game the green light. kickstarter.com/p...
  • This American Life retracts the Foxconn / Mike Daisey story. thisamericanlife....
  • You know the trick where you use Comic Sans or Papyrus, to motivate the real designers to fix it with real design? Sometimes it backfires.
  • @KayinNasaki See, it does *usually* work!
  • Bret Victor demonstrates a mouth-wateringly-interactive new coding interface, and it only gets better from there. vimeo.com/3657936...
  • Mouths. heyokay.com/image...

Mar 17

  • RT @WstonesOxfordSt To find out your author name simply take your first and last names, write a book, get it published and read the name on the cover.
  • First thing you see booting up Journey is a EULA that takes 15 seconds to page through. Stay classy, PSN.
  • (My second and third observations about Journey were also complaints, but it's been pretty amazing since then.)

Mar 18

  • Finally wrote the last check in my checkbook. I've had that checkbook since the last millenium.
  • Mike Daisey and the Apple Factory: the retraction episode. thisamericanlife....
  • I kept waiting for Journey to become more than it was. It's gorgeous and well-made, but it never actually *goes anywhere*.
  • Still processing, but one factor was that the apparently-intended meditative mood was destroyed every time some dude showed up in my game.
  • I stopped taking in the landscape and wondering what was behind the next hill, and started wondering whether that's AI or another player.
  • Then I wondered whether it was rude to hang back and explore. Then I wondered whether he's judging me for repeatedly failing that jump.
  • Even at the end, in the snow, I was thinking about the other player, specifically about how weird it was that we were so synchronized.

Mar 19

  • @Satchamobob I'm *pretty* sure that that's not what the developers were intending me to feel at that moment.
  • I guess what saying is that I wish Journey was on XBLA, where my silver-level Live account would've kept xXx_SNiPeRWoLF_xXx off my lawn.
  • @KayinNasaki Did it also make you wonder whether maybe you should look into anti-anxiety medication?
  • @BrianNumberOne Frickin' wifi!
  • @Satchamobob @KayinNasaki In that the multiplayer made me think thoughts I hadn't previously thought, it was a total success.

Mar 20

  • @aerothopter Hm. It makes me feel like that was an explicit goal of the developer, to bring widely disparate people together emotionally.
  • I've never seen Connie Chung more excited. youtube.com/watch...

  • So, um, Spriter is a subset of Flash, right? The animation tool that's already existed for over a decade? kickstarter.com/p...
  • Is the idea that it's cheaper? Or that since it does less, there's less of a learning curve? I could totally get behind both, if true.
  • @westquote John Nesky broke it down on Facebook. Short version: Flash doesn't expose skeletal animation data, and exporting is harder.
  • @jonbeilin Looking further into it, it seems like that's possible to do, but decidedly nontrivial, by writing an ActionScript exporter.
  • John Nesky broke down Spriter's advantages for me in a Facebook comment, which this margin is too narrow to contain. TL;DR: backed.

  • The guitar lead is a little bit flat. Chris and I are discussing whether fixing it would ruin the charm.
