The "whatever's on your mind" thread

posted by GuruGuru214 on - last edited - Viewed by 183.5K users

One of the things that's great about this forum is its randomness. Well, this is the epitome of it: a thread for whatever random thought happens to be passing through your mind.

For example, I've just been struck by the most random craving for Taco Bell nachos.

    Good. Good.

  • Funny story. I worked with that guy on Picaroon. And by worked I mean did nothing to help and did more to stall the project than do anything worthwhile, to my regret. So I think he hates me.

  • If they offered free beer to intelligent people, and you're intelligent, how much beer can you drink before you no longer qualify?

  • Finally a screenshot of the PC version of FEZ:

    Remember kids. It's a console game for consoles. PCs are for spreadsheets.

    Nonono, Warpy. Not "free beer to intelligent people". "Free beer for intelligent people"! As in, a good exchange, just hand them over the counter.

    I think I play enough of THAT game already.

    Lol. How did you stall it?

  • Well, when you're supposed to be doing something and you're doing nothing, and people are expecting productivity from you.....

    That does kind of stall things until they realize you're a lazy prick.

    You were just... Busy planning your own game.

    The two biggest things causing me to not do well were such:

    I just kept doing shitty art
    I was supposed to write, but I kept getting writer's block and then did nothing

    They used one of my designs (an inventor), but Zyndicate had to polish it, and he basically ended up taking over for me on art. This was a few years ago now, though.

    I've learned a lot of lessons, and I'm more responsible. I still fall back into lack of focus though. It was a really valuable experience, even if it paints me in a really shitty light. I don't run away from my mistakes, though.
