online multiplayer

anonymous asked:

So is using these online services consoles have for online multiplayer like paying for an MMO? I've never played one but I know you have to keep paying for the game. Its a big turn off to me.

There is one important distinction to make with Xbox Live and Playstation Network, and that’s that you don’t actually pay for them monthly. I mean, I suppose you could if you really wanted to, but the “accepted” way to pay for them is to buy a 12 month subscription once per year ($60). That comes out to about $5 a month.

But, yes. In order to connect to the network and play these games online, you need a subscription. You also usually need a subscription for other online functionality, too – I remember the first Forza Horizon demanded an Xbox Live Gold subscription in order to access their repository of player-created vehicle skins. And, for the duration of the Xbox 360, you needed Xbox Live Gold in order to use Netflix (which in itself had a separate subscription fee). Thankfully, when the Xbox One was announced, even non-subscribers could finally access Netflix as long as they had a Netflix account.

Either way, it’s all ridiculous.

OKAY BUT CAN WE ALL PLEASE ACKNOWLEDGE THE FACT :

THAT THERE IS A MERCHANT CAT IN CALPHEON’S CITY MARKET

THAT SELLS TINY FISH TO OTHER CATS IN THE MARKET.

I feel that Steven Universe fighting game could realistically happen, or maybe even a fan game lol. The characters in this series just have so much move set potential to just ignore. I feel it would be best if it was a 3 man tag team like the marvel vs capcom series, and the bigger fusions would take the spot as 2 or even 3 full characters. Who would you main if this was real? I’d main a Sardonyx instantly!

WOAH DUDE

I GOT A NEW LEVEL PROTOTYPING WORKFLOW. IT USES ROBLOX BECAUSE I’M A CHILD.  I UNINSTALLED PROBUILDER BASIC BECAUSE IT FUCKING SUCKS AND FAKE LEGO IS WAY EASIER. ALSO WHY IS IT EASIER TO IMPORT A LEVEL FROM ROBLOX THAN BLENDER? SERIOUSLY, IT’S 1 TO 1.

I MADE AI THAT ISN’T TOTALLY BROKEN (A LITTLE BRAINDEAD, BUT THAT’S BECAUSE I NEED TO ADD STUFF, THE STUFF THAT’S THERE WORKS.)

NEW GUNS GOT ME LIKE 😍😍😍😍 (A SHOTGUN AND A REALLY SHITTY TASER DESIGNED PRIMARILY FOR BOT USE. IT’S SUPER DODGEABLE. I MADE THE TASER MODEL THREE YEARS AGO AND NEVER USED IT.)

I GOT BORED WITH HOW SLOW THE GAME PLAYED SO I DOUBLED EVERY STAT IN THE GAME.

I REMOVED LIMITED AMMO BECAUSE IT’S BORING. IT’LL STILL BE IN THE CAMPAIGN (LOL)

THINKIN’ ‘BOUT RELEASING SOMETHING SMALL IN A WEEK. WHICH WOULD BE THE FIRST TIME I’VE RELEASED A GAME IN OVER A YEAR.

THE NETCODE IS BROKEN, BUT THAT’S JUST KIND OF WHAT NETCODE DOES. (FOR SOME REASON ON ONE LEVEL ONLY WHICH IS NO DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER LEVEL THE GAME PLAYS LIKE YOUR INTERNET CONNECTION IS A CUP PHONE)

I MADE AN ACTUAL TEAM DEATHMATCH LEVEL, RATHER THAN A CUBE WITH A WALL WHICH HAS BEEN THE PRIMARY TESTING LEVEL FOR. UH. EVER.

I’VE BEEN TALKING WITH A FRIEND ABOUT CAT MODELS FOR THE CHARACTERS, B/C EVEN THOUGH THIS IS A GAME ABOUT CATS SO FAR THERE HAS BEEN 0 CATS.

I MADE A VERY CUT DOWN VERSION OF HOARD MODE CALLED SURVIVAL, BECAUSE THE ACTUAL VERSION IS COMPLETELY BROKEN. INSTEAD OF TARGETING A SPECIFIC THING THEY JUST LOOK FOR PLAYERS AND SHOOT.

SCREEN_SHOTS (FROM THE SHITTY LAPTOP I’M MAKING IT ON, IT LOOKS WAY BETTER ON A 1070, I ALSO NEED TO BAKE THE LIGHTING. AGAIN, I’LL DO THAT ON A 1070.)

1. tdm_courtyard, mid rocket jump

2. surv_talldark. You can see a bullet tracer in the distance there

3. surv_talldark. While trying to get an action shot of the shotgun firing mid air I got murdered by that taser round.

Splatoon has no voice chat. #DealWithIt

For those who keep complaining about Splatoon not having any voice chat: they already released the game. Adding voice chat would mean reconstructing the game entirely. If you really are angry/sad that Splatoon has no voice chat, then let’s see you do something about it other than gripe about it for days.

Sure, I’m also sad that voice chat is not in Splatoon, but is that going to stop me from enjoying what the game already has? Does EVERY game nowadays need online play, voice chat, and/or downloadable content in order to be a hit?

You laid on your belly atop your bed, groaning into the sheets. The day was nice, the sun was shining, but what were you doing? You were in bed watching Jungkook play his video games. Yeah, you loved video games too, you even considered yourself a pretty good gamer, but playing games were what the two of you have been doing for the past few days. The same thing, day in and day out. Games, games, games. 

Jungkook sat with his back leaning on the edge of the bed, intensely focusing on the television before him. He was playing some sort of online multiplayer shooter game, “YAH! YAAAH! OOOH, YEAAAH!” You could tell by the way he was screaming that he was definitely winning. This boy had a huge competition complex and never accepted taking second place.

You crawled over behind him and nestle your head in the crook of his neck. He was so into the game, he hadn’t even flinched when your sharp chin made contact with his neck, “Koookie, can we pleeeeease do something else?” He just made some weird grunt sound in response, “Kooooookie!” You wiggle your head playfully to snap him out of his gamer trance.

“Jagi, I’m…kinda….in….the middle….of something…YAH GOT ‘EM!” He was harshly pounding on the buttons in between each word. He really loved winning, this boy. Your eyes lit up when an idea came to mind.

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: Nintendo needs to make another Kirby Air Ride game, with multiple larger city trial maps, more mini games, an option where you can spend more time powering up in city trial and then competing in a series of mini games and races, and online multiplayer.

What’s coming up next?

Well we’ve completed most of the major systems that we promised for Beta. However, these systems are not fully complete, and need a lot of polish, testing and debugging. Here is what we are working on next month

1. Building up the world environment
2. Working on Multiplayer
3. Launch Steam Greenlight
4. Test playing and debugging

Instead of demo videos possibly in March or April  we may start doing livestreams which should be fun. Beta testing will remain closed until the game is as polished as we can make it. We’re not going to release until we feel like we are ready. Kickstarter bakers will be the first to test play it and then later it will be to the public. Development is still going strong, no major hiccups.

Thanks again for your support. Keep following to stay updated.

No More Martyrs

Can you imagine a world where Wendy Carlos was murdered for being trans?

Electronic music would still be in a lab as a curiosity. There would be a different soundtrack to Clockwork Orange and Tron.

Can you imagine a world where Martine Rothblatt was murdered for being trans?

There would be no satellite radio.

Can you imagine a world where Lana Wachowski was murdered for being trans?

There would be no Matrix or Cloud Atlas.

Can you imagine a world where Danielle Bunten Berry was murdered for being trans?

There would be no multiplayer online games.

Can you imagine a world where Lynn Conway was murdered for being trans?

There would be no modern microchips, no small computers, no smart phones, virtually no modern electronics.

When trans people are murdered, we lose our future. Imagine how much we’ve lost already.

We need no more martyrs.
