That should get me into enough trouble for now.
anyway I guess we are doing #introductions again right? I'm a game dev, writer, and critic. I make games about horror, space, and currently horror in space, and I write for sites including Zam and Waypoint. You can check out my work at http://brunodias.space and http://voyageur.space
Oh #introductions time again?
I’m Robbie, a #webdev who makes super niche-specific #webapps (http://robbie.antenesse.net), a #gamedev who made some #videogames and is making #boardgames and #cardgames (https://alamantus.itch.io), and a #linguistics and #conlanging enthusiast who’s made some #conlangs (https://zirka-language.tumblr.com, https://gobahai.tumblr.com) and is interested in non-English languages (https://lexiconga.tumblr.com)!
I also have 2 cute #dogs I post pictures of sometimes. 😊
As a long-time fan of #strategy #videogames, I'm becoming more and more aware of the fact they are a channel through which the predominant, hierarchical and capitalist worldview is delivered to teenagers and young adults around the world.
What if, for a change, we developed a strategy game where #cooperation and mutual help are rewarded, instead of conquest, exploitation and wealth extraction? Would such a game be boring, or fun to play?
#gradschool question: is animal crossing new leaf #acnl easy to balance with the work load? I keep wanting to play dragon age but it always feels like it needs to be a multi-hour commitment (partly because I need to hook up everything whenever I want to play).... the sims can be kind of stressful and pokemon is definitely stressful because I grind all the time in it haha
what are #videogames I can play for stress relief/escapism?
hot video game take, abuse mention Show more
nick robinson and his sudden face-heel turn is only a symptom of the inherently reactionary and patriarchal spectacle of "gamer culture" and the fact that people are shocked (me included) shows how much we need to work on burning it to the ground along with all its cultural defenders.
I found out that I could emulate PlayStation games on my GCW Zero handheld console I got for Christmas a few years ago, so I spent the whole evening setting it up and loading disks onto it so I could play some cool-as-heck PlayStation games that I vaguely remember from my childhood like Tomba! and other games I've wanted to play like PaRappa the Rapper.
I also found out I can mod the console to make the d-pad not squeaky anymore! So that's good! Yay!
Politics: Government is a lobby-style #MMO video game where there's lots of players waiting around but almost all attempt to extort expensive DLC items out of you for the privilege of playing with them. They argue that you're free to otherwise play the practice/tutorial mode all that you want. #gaming #satire #videogames
