Re: Politics and the Vague Fear of Something Called Donald T

The way I see it now the end result will be Trump v. Clinton. And Trump just gets trounced in the actual election. Thing is, everyone was saying Trump would get trounced during the pre--presidential-election election back when it started. Now it's looking like he's going to win that. I don't think ...

Re: Gaming General Chat Thread

My problem is that it had the main character be a complete ass for no real reason. Yes, his reaction was similar to the one he had during the first copy process. But, if anything, that makes me feel like it makes less sense. He started throwing a tantrum despite it being the same thing as the first...

Re: Gaming General Chat Thread

Just finished watching Alex play SOMA. It was a really interesting narrative, though it feels like the medium was... poor-suited for telling the story. Mostly because it felt like the story had to take long breaks just to be a game (not the puzzles, but the slowly moving between places, just becaus...

Re: What is a videogames?

This is why I also add the "choice" element to the list as well. It can be small. It can be as simple as picking up a rock or not. It doesn't even have to affect the outcome. But I believe that the element of some sort of choice needs to exist for it to be called a "game." The o...

Re: What is a videogames?

On the other hand, by refusing the label you're instead limiting the creative potential of the medium in general. All you're essentially arguing is that we should find a new name for the entire medium that we currently call 'video games' because you want to use the term 'video games' to refer to a ...

Re: What is a videogames?

So why make the distinction at all? Beyond the pedantic rationalization, I think trying to label any "virtual experience" as a game stymies their creative exploration. How many horror games have been made with arbitrary "find the keys" and "puzzle locks" crammed in to ...

Re: Fantasy Mafia: Game Finished

I must admit that I was hoping you'd pick up at least one myself. I should reuse the necromancer role at some point so it can have another chance at demonstrating how powerful it really is The problem with the necromancer isn't that it's not powerful it's that it's inconsistently powerful. If it hi...

Re: Fantasy Mafia: Game Finished

I'm also surprised by the sheer power level of the game (though that's not a complaint; just an observation). It was pretty unexpected for me to functionally have 3 investigators, 2 (or maybe 1.5) villain groups and a pair of secret society members as well as a roleblocker. That's a lot of power be...

Huh, and here I was preparing to break down my list of 'reasons Jamfalcon is totes a revenant' :P I figured it was my best chance, especially since Jam's ability doesn't seem like it'd have been affected by my ability. Plus, since it only worked until I did a kill, it would help if anyone tried to d...

Re: Fantasy Mafia: Day 4

Hey Metric, just a thought... there's always the slim possibility that there's another twist in the roles or something we're not seeing, and maybe we're both innocent and are just going at each other's throats needlessly. Just in case that's true, I'm going to follow you tonight. If you still have ...

Re: Fantasy Mafia: Day 3

I think we should completely disregard Memo's actions; we have no way of knowing how deep the(Double/triple/quadruple/...) bluff goes. So, disregarding it all(At least for now) would probably prevent him from playing us. I dunno, watching him repeatedly goozle himself is a little amusing :P Anyway,...

You're the one who said: It also seems highly unlikely that the pack leader wouldn't have an ability beyond 'nightkill' I did. Although you'll notice that 'immune to faction checks' is a passive ability rather than an active one, and that there aren't many other powers it would make sense for the s...

Re: Fantasy Mafia: Day 2

I don't recall a 'godfather' ever being immune to investigation. That's generally what they're known for being . There is also the fact Snorsh specified investigation abilities are reliable, not that they were accurate. Which would imply that if there was anyone who had an ability that said they re...

Re: Fantasy Mafia: Day 2

Does revenants die if the necromancer does? Memo said earlier that he could still win if he died as long as the person he raised survived to the end; which suggests they don't. Do Jam or Metric have any information to give us? Well, something's been bothering me since we lynched Duckay. Specificall...

Re: Fantasy Mafia: Day 2

Priority number one right now is that Robo and Smeghead need to find out from Mono_Snorsh if their telepathy ability would let them know if the other cultist changed faction or not.

Re: Fantasy Mafia: Day 2

Personally, I think that keeping Memo alive is better for the mafia than it is for the town. Consider that Smeghead and Robo don't just need the town to win, they need the town to win and still both be alive when that happens. This means that eliminating a killing role is by far their highest prior...

Re: Fantasy Mafia: Day 2

Anyway in regards to the necromancer I’m in agreement with Robot hat it isn’t a problem at the moment; mafia is priority 1 as the necromancer cannot do night-kills. As for voting, it’s a bit of a mess. If I follow Robo’s vote then that accomplishes nothing; ducky still gets lynched and Metric goes ...
