    There's Not Much Role-Playing in Role-Playing Games These Days

    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...

    There's Not Much Role-Playing in Role-Playing Games These Days

    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...

    Blizzard Celebrates 20 Years of Diablo With Events Across All Games

    Forget this, they need a Twitch live stream like the Sonic Anniversary. "That's the sound of 20 years of Diablo." *silence*

    Judging By The Cover: Judging the Christmas Nativity Round 2

    I love these classical art ones, there's so much to work with. Nice one, Yahtzee, and Happy Christmas.

    Good Bad Flicks: Santa Claus

    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.

    Good Bad Flicks: Scanners 3

    Lol. I'm having a shitty day at work and this made me laugh on my break. Good work, mate - interesting and funny again.

    Working For a Living

    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."...

    Zero Punctuation: Gears of War 4

    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...

    Good Bad Flicks: Trapped

    This film is actually on Youtube but I just had a look and the sound and video quality is poor. Still, it's free, so...

    Zero Punctuation: Mafia 3

    Good stuff, the review made me laugh quite a few times, just a pity that bloody music is back at the start of ZP.

    Good Bad Flicks: Deadly Eyes

    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...

    Zero Punctuation: Paper Mario Color Splash

    Thank Christ you got rid of that intro music. I hated it and sometimes missed the first few words of the review as I turned the mute button off. Good move.

    Good Bad Flicks: Deadly Eyes

    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. Elves (ft Dan Haggerty). The Vinyard (ft James Hong) 976 Evil (dir Robert Englund) The...
