- @mrasmus Receiver totally counts as educational. ↲
- @videocrab Like set up in an Imax theater? What a gorgeous idea. Still 640x480 resolution, presumably. ↲
- It doesn't look like it at first but this is definitely a video game. candies.aniwey.net/...
- @LorenBednar Oh, is it yours? ↲
- @LorenBednar @aniwey Ah, yeah, that's probably part of why I liked it! ↲
- @aniwey @LorenBednar I am curious to see your reaction! ↲
- @aniwey @LorenBednar A mouse helps, yeah. Good sound is also important, if that's possible to arrange. ↲

- @mad_maw Really, any game+golf seems like a solid idea. A friend of mine made a Quake Golf mod in 1998 or so. It was hot shit! ↲
- For Frog Fractions help, call the Beard hotline at (469) BEA-RDS4! We will be compiling a set of "frequently asked questions," or "FRASQUE."

- @PedroLP_ Depends on what you mean by "attended" and also "hot." ↲
- @rachel_sala You might enjoy this product! en.wikipedia.org/wi... ↲

- Fez is now available on PC. store.steampowered....
- @alexremington If you want to do the port, I'll work with you to make the necessary design changes! ↲
- @leighalexander Interpreting this tumblr as being about privilege is pretty generous. My reading is more like "HA HA LOOK AT THE GEEKS" ↲
- @leighalexander Staring at your phone for the entire train ride, everybody does that, but wearing *glasses*? Cue the Weird Science theme! ↲
- @leighalexander Sorry, I grew up in the 80s so I may be oversensitive to traditional anti-geek imagery. ↲
- @IvanDashSmith Yeah. I'm stuck on the Castle Keep! ↲
- @rachel_sala @haydencd Don't forget to wait for lollipops too! ↲

- I used to have the Prime Number Shitting Bear as my desktop. Finding new primes eventually killed system performance. alpha61.com/primenu...
- Rarely have I gotten a syntax error as simple as "; expected" and stared at my code for so long trying to figure out what's wrong.
- So many of the abilities I value are utterly unconscious; if I suddenly lost them I'd have no idea what went wrong or how to get them back.
- I get glimpses of this with twitch games like Rock Band or Super Hexagon. Suddenly I can't play at all. Will I ever be able to play again?
- (It turns out that the mysterious missing semicolon was the editor not displaying the line the error was on. Restarting Eclipse fixed it.)
- @snickelsox You should practice being ambidextrous. You could be like the only guy in the office who can type in Dvorak! ↲
- @Arc208 I bet there was an episode of The Twilight Zone about this. ↲
- Receipt Racer: youtube.com/watch?v...
- @KommanderKlobb Not if you play with disappearing ink! ↲
- @KommanderKlobb Or you could have it print onto a roll of toilet paper, then when you want to rage quit you can wipe your ass with the game. ↲
- Turns out, life without the Internet is actually a lot like life with the Internet: theverge.com/2013/5...
- OH: "Have you ever been sweaty at a butterfly farm?"
- Man, did I tell you guys about the time when I only watched a movie for like two hours straight? Not multitasking: the skill of the future.
- Experimental result: the last customer's leftover sausage meatball doesn't work to prop up a wobbly table. Can I get some peer review?
- @frank0127 Hrm, actually, wasn't Polygon part of The Verge for a long time? ↲
- @LorenBednar A good trick! I should learn that one. ↲
- @YouOldSoAndSo Just because I liked one movie, I'll like these, is that how it works? ↲
- @NicholasGolden I couldn't do this when I was telecommuting, but now that I'm mostly writing code locally, I disable wifi while working. ↲
- @LorenBednar Sounds delicious! ↲
- @frank0127 "Insidious." It was okay. The best part of the experience was finding out I was capable of not checking my email for two hours. ↲
- @NicholasGolden You could play the whole family, trying to cover the human visitor perfectly with as little overlap as possible. ↲
- Can't-fail startup idea of the day: cat wigs.
- RT @BenBrocka @mogwai_poet too slow kittywigs.com/wigin...
- @Pattoe89 Form a dumb startup and we'll exchange stock. ↲
- I was actually thinking about full-body cat wigs, for hairless breeds. But I admit that scalp-only wigs probably has broader appeal.
- @Noxonomus Me too, now! I'm also really scared of the idea. ↲
- @Kraznor Both! ↲
- @Pattoe89 Well, except that it would look like cat fur rather than clothes! ↲
- @Pattoe89 I liked the idea of a spider that would subsist on your body hair. No more unsightly razor burn! ↲

- @dislekcia Glad I was helpful! ↲
- Petsmart takes a dark turn. twitter.com/mogwai_...

- Are drivers *really* more friendly and helpful in Russia, or do they just have more cameras to catch it happening? youtube.com/watch?v...
- @Pattoe89 To play Frog Fractions, you must subscribe to the Twinbeard Suite, featuring games such as Pogo Grapple Racecars: Havana Nights! ↲
- @LorenBednar You can't afford NOT to! ↲
- @arara_ @RobThez Yeah, that makes sense. ↲
- The Bolton Strid is by far the most fascinating and terrifying item on this list, because it's *not* spectacular. cracked.com/article...
- RT @kobunheat ACTUAL QUOTE "Every developer dreams of creating games for the Star Wars universe," said EA's Frank Gibeau. And EA has made sure they can't.
- @NicholasGolden I like them too, in that they're polite enough to look scary so passers by will know to stay away. ↲
- @NicholasGolden Next build: post credits, the rip current in the Hearst Castle Pool dashes you against the rocks and you die instantly. ↲
- @rachel_sala @NicholasGolden It's how we justify sending you to hell for the Doom clone! (Man, should I be tweeting this idea in public?) ↲
- The average human lives in the Earth's core. Or inside the sun, depending on your reference frame.
- @louroboros @smestorp I didn't think of that! ↲
- @Pattoe89 We've secretly switched their Folger's Crystals with the surface of the Sun. Let's see if anyone notices! ↲

- @vogon Right, okay. ↲
- @vogon How are they going to fit another star on the flag and not send the design into a spiraling mess? ↲
- @AmyDentata Oh right, like that time congress voted that the Boston strangler was a pretty cool guy. ↲

- @aleczandah Oh, cool. ↲
- @nickd3000 Could be a golem. Or a scorpion turned to gold by a King Midas-like force. I'm sure there's fan-fiction explaining its backstory! ↲

- . @PTibz You know what's easy? Copying an existing design! Let the art and music guys worry about originality. ↲

- @Michipoo18 Yeah! He was scary in the sense that he was effective at killing me, but too silly looking to be thematically scary nowadays. ↲
- @ForneusLex That was basically my takeaway as well. Very much of the "throw some systems together" school of game design. ↲
- @ForneusLex Notably, Binding of Isaac provides you with wildly variable drops but it's tuned so you never feel like you wasted your time. ↲
- Working out of a coffee shop, I heard normal-person TV news talking about this. TV watchers care about it, I guess! http://t.co/b85pqpoeQ9

- @NorthernlionLP Hm. Now I think I need to read a primer on how Let's-Play monetization works. Do you have one of *those* handy? ↲
- @NorthernlionLP Yeah, that makes sense. It must suck to not have clear boundaries for what's okay, though. Rug could be pulled at any time. ↲
- @NorthernlionLP Yeah, indies love it. Hell, the AAA devs themselves do too; problems start when corporate gets involved. Peace, love, dope! ↲

- @fiddlecub To be fair, we *did* see a lot of idiots bitching that there were no guns/trench coats. It's just that the game was bad *too*. ↲
- @CPriestman No guns, just mechanically identical paint thinner! It's not a platformer, it's just that the primary game mechanic is jumping! ↲
- @fiddlecub Minecraft and Red Faction Guerilla come to mind. Hell, Solomon's Key and Zoo Keeper, if you want to go way back. ↲

- What's the pattern today? Poorly-conceived economic systems encourage exploitation?
- @UndeadManWalkin I think we just said the same thing. ↲
- @illustruction Thanks! Oh man, if that's where you left off, stay excited :) ↲
- @UndeadManWalkin You can only exploit in the context of a system you're exploiting. Systems can be good or bad at discouraging exploitation. ↲
- @UndeadManWalkin Are you? I'll take your word for it :) ↲
- @NinjaMarion @ZackScott I love and want to encourage LPs. I think all devs do. Nintendo's decision stinks of the legal department. ↲
- @NinjaMarion I get that concern, but I think let's-plays getting the word out resulted in more people seeing the twist fresh, via sharing. ↲

- Everyone's desperate for parking at Maker Fair, so uh, half a dozen cars just kind of commandeered an empty field and parking in rows.
- No coordination, they just all showed up at once and parked near each other. i guess this is how parking lots are made.

- Protip: "be yourself" only works for the effortlessly-attractive. If that's you, you're the last person who should be giving dating advice.
