OK, back now, more drunk than I was before, and Id say what is the new frountier?
So much computer power put into graphics. The new frountier is AI.
A conversation tree can be done on an IBM XT. How many numbers needed to be calculated to get a pixel on whoever this idiot Rhyder's face is...
In a dream future of hover cars and quantum computers I'd like to get away from the whole idea of a conversation tree.
I'd like conversation to be something put through our modern techniques of syntax analysis and semantics and then sentences could be translated into weighted effects on NPCs...
Just the Elves mention made my day.
And what better Christmas movie is there than a story of incest, Nazi created monsters and Dan Haggerty? The elf also stabs Santa in the balls.
Happy Christmas, CecilT.
This one made me laugh my arse off, I have to say.
Thing is, I'm not a creative or anything, I just fucking hate my job. There's always an argumenmt in my head, Gollum style:
"I can't believe we're doing this again. Find a better job."
"We will, let's just get this week done first."...
I got some good laughs from that one, good episode, but I'm beginning to wonder if it's worth putting in the "grizzled white dude" complaint in every time it occurs in an action game.
May as well complain that every Big Mac Meal I get comes with fries. I think they do offer carrot sticks now...
The Children of Ravensback is also called The Children and I think in the film it calls itself The Children of Ravenscroft - even the film itself doesn't know what it's called.
HD upgrade of Elves - I need that to see that ridgid elf puppet in all its HD glory.
BTW, Elves is actually on...
Lol. I love these 80's horry films as well. It all started to go downhill when things became ironic more than CG, in my opinion.
I'm thinking of some old horror films I used to both love and laugh at.
