network-maker

so im making a steven universe based rpg game..

..using rpg maker.
right now i have nothing on the table OBVIOUSLY but you would be able to play as steven, and the members of your party will be extensive, and all different gems w different skills and stats etc;… the main villians could be the homeworld gems maybe.
i have experience with rpgmaker so it should be super fun to make, and id release it on gamejolt.

the humour is basically gonna be all sorts of poop jokes and memes and “tumblr mannerisms”, maybe the humour that youd see from five nights at f**kboys (another rpgmaker game)

this is obviously all a starting-out idea but

I NEED PLOT/GAME MECHANIC IDEAS! little tidbits of any sort would help! thanks

Recently, were asked by the boss to re-evaluate our core values. For those of us that did it- cough cough- this was an easy task! But we all found one common trait: there were obsolete items on the list! So basically we’re operating on values we don’t need, aren’t using and just plain forgot! Blow the dust of those values! Revisit the reasons you started in the first place! Doing this may even jump start your creativity and passion for what you do! #professionaldevelopment #audience #engagement #brand #authentic #emotionalintelligence #mediatraining #strategy #consulting #inspiration #tips #creatives #business #networking #entrepreneur #innovation #thinkers #startup #music #entertainer #ceopresence #creators #makers #tastemakers #identity #theknackbrand

Technicolor Buys Cisco’s Set-Top Box And Home Broadband Unit: Reports

Paris-based media and entertainment technology company Technicolor is buying computer networking giant Cisco Systems’ set-top box and related home broadband equipment business for roughly $600 million, Bloomberg reported today.

The deal will result in Technicolor becoming the No. 2 company worldwide in what is called “customer premises equipment” — phone gear, cable and satellite TV set-top boxes, routers and switches, and home monitoring/management devices — with total sales of roughly $3.3 billion and a 15% market share, vs the 25% share of the business that will be controlled by U.S. network gear maker Arris Group and British set-box maker Pace, when they complete a merger.

“Video is what is driving traffic today,” Technicolor CEO Frederic Rose told a conference call. “All this is fueling a massive demand for customer premises television equipment.” Technicolor said it would pay Cisco about $450 million in cash and about $150 million in new Technicolor shares, according to the Wall Street Journal. Deal is expected to close in the 4th quarter of 2015 or 1st quarter of 2016.

The acquisition will double the annual revenue at Technicolor’s connected-home unit, giving it a business that ships 60 million devices a year and has an installed base of about 290 million set-top boxes, Reuters said. Cisco will continue to partner with Technicolor in related areas but will focus more on the broader business of cloud and global networking.

The transaction will also boost Technicolor’s footprint in North America, where the combined company is expected to make 57% of its sales. Technicolor stock was up roughly 20%, pushing the company’s market value to about $2.66 billion.

Google stock surges 16 per cent to create record $65.1 billion in shareholder wealth in 1 day
By Michael Liedtke And Marley Jay, The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO - Google’s stock roared out of a long slumber Friday to produce the biggest shareholder windfall in U.S. history as investors rewarded the Internet company for promising to curb its spending on risky projects.

A 16 per cent surge in Google’s publicly traded stock translated into an additional $65.1 billion in shareholder wealth, on paper at least.

That barely topped the previous record one-day gain of $65 billion by Cisco Systems Inc. in April 2000 after the computer networking equipment maker had suffered a steep drop in the previous week, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices. More recently, iPhone maker Apple Inc. posted a $46.4 billion one-day gain in April 2012 after its quarterly earnings wowed Wall Street.

Google’s gigantic run-up came after the Mountain View, California, company reported quarterly earnings that topped analyst estimates for the first time since late 2013. The company’s inability to hit the targets that steer investors had raised doubts about Google that had caused its stock to lag the rest of the market since the end of 2013.

Investors were even more impressed with a message of newfound austerity delivered by Google’s new chief financial officer, Ruth Porat. In prepared remarks and in responses to analyst questions posed in a late Thursday conference call, Porat repeatedly stressed that Google intends to control its costs more diligently.

The words placated investors who had become increasingly frustrated with Google’s penchant for spending on projects that had little or nothing to do with its man business of Internet search and advertising — areas that the company has long dominated.

The expansion into more experimental areas, such as self-driving cars, Internet-beaming balloons, and Internet-connected eyewear, had been contributing to a pattern of Google’s operating expenses increasing at a faster clip than its revenue growth.

Although Google has still been making plenty of money, many investors believed the company needed to clamp down on expenses. Google CEO Larry Page and fellow co-founder Sergey Brin, who wield voting control over the company, resisted the demands until having an apparent change of heart in March when they lured Porat away as CFO at investment bank Morgan Stanley to take the same job at Google.

Porat, known for astute budget management, didn’t start working at Google until late May, but she has already quickly justified her pay package of roughly $70 million.

“People are feeling pretty good about Google now,” said S&P Capital IQ analyst Scott Kessler. “People are saying, ‘Wow, look at what we are already seeing with Ruth there. Let’s see what happens when she has time to make a really positive impact.’”

Google’s Class A shares gained $97.84 to close at $699.62 to leave the company with a market value of about $469 billion, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices. That’s still a distant second among U.S. companies to Apple, whose market value stands about $747 billion. That’s still as Google’s Class C shares rose 16.1 per cent to $672.93.

The biggest beneficiaries of Google’s rousing rally were Page and Brin, whose already vast fortunes each climbed by more than $4 billion Friday. Google’s 57,000 employees already also were feeling richer, too, because they all receive stock as part of their compensation packages.
