This is of course correct.

He strikes me as a "South Park Conservative." You know, someone who doesn't take politics seriously and who doesn't think too deeply about their assumptions, so progressive kind of shit seems silly in general and the current crop of wokies look like they're from another dimension. They'd rather laugh at the weird shit and half-ironically lament how crazy the world has become instead of questioning why it is the way that it is.

I think that without Mike the show might have had a more woke angle (given shit I've heard Jay and Jack say). I'm glad that among all the movies and TV discourse there are people who don't lend the woke marketing shit credence and even mock it sometimes. I think the discourse may be starting to turn on this thanks in part to the 2016 US elections using idpol and the 2020 election flaming out hardcore on that front already. From a strategic ideological perspective, having people just be largely neutral is good because it helps weaken the perceived hegemony of liberal ideology. Also, Mike was the one who started the whole thing and still does a lot of the work, so without him there probably wouldn't be a show at all.

The male gaze objectifying people to consume them is absolutely an injustice, any Marxis should oppose the commodification of women. Of course brosocialists hate "woke identity politics" so they'll never talk about how Hollywood contributes to the ongoing rape of women in porn lol 2. How many white settler colonialist people will point out the obviously CIA funded movies, or the inherent fascism of heroic myths for Iron Man/Black Panther/etc This is a redpill for morons who don't understand capitalist systems.

free retro homebrew gaming Anonymous Comrade 01/20/2020 (Mon) 17:19:29 No. 5479 [Reply]
Do you have an emulator for NES, anon? Mine Shaft: A very simple game, just push left or right as you descend. What's your score? https://www.romhacking.net/homebrew/34/ Nova the Squirrel: Don't be put off by the picture of the lame title screen. This is a full-blown side-scrolling platform adventure that would haven been worthy of official publishing back in the day. https://www.romhacking.net/homebrew/114/ Star Evil: I don't even. https://www.romhacking.net/homebrew/101/

Get It! is a very old-school game (the level = the screen). Catch items, avoid the baddies. http://www.gravelstudios.com/getit/ What I found very unusual about is that the speed of the player is the same as the speed of the items and enemies bouncing around. So my initial reaction was that it's "objectively" a design mistake, but a few minutes later I got into the flow of things. You just have to anticipate a bit how the things are bouncing. Also has a two-player mode! Remember those dubious cartridges promising to contain a truckload of games? The promised number of games turned out to be a very postmodern way of counting, with different modes or levels of the same game being presented as two or three different games. Graphic assets and sound was also shared between the titles. In this wonderful tradition is 31 in 1 Real Game! by, once again, the Mojon Twins, featuring utterly pointless low-res nudity (I'm not complaining) and parodies. Download is right at the top of this list: http://www.nesworld.com/article.php?system=nes&data=neshomebrew I found Rendezvous and Zombie Calavera Prologue the most interesting. One little thing that irks me about many homebrew titles is how moving diagonally works. They often just add together the movement of each axis, so you move faster diagonally. I'm pretty sure that's not how it works in real life… I also believe that the programmers of the old games back in the day usually took care to avoid that counter-intuitive issue. For example, your spaceship in R-Type does not move faster diagonally and the player can make more precise movements by hugging the left edge of the screen and pressing diagonally.
>>6167 >It's just larping We're talking about video games here, so I don't see why that's a problem, but I've got other points to make. Another thing I've noticed is that higher resolution makes the game a lot laggier. playing the game with the original resolution completely gets rid of the lag (but then the screen is tiny). it's not like the game looks any better, we still use the exact same sprite the only difference the higher resolution make is showing more of the map than you should actually be able to see, at time it even results in you being able to see a black void on the screen which you wouldn't be able to see in the original game.
http://www.nesworld.com/article.php?system=nes&data=neshomebrew I had a look at some other titles on there. What Remains is a short 2019 "adventure" (or rather walking sim) set in 1986 with a plot like Captain Planet on cocaine. They did not try for a very authentic 1986 feel (for example, I don't think "paywalled" was a term in use back then). Got a few sensible chuckles out of me and the same number of eyeroll moments. This is really an actual piece of software that one could unironically label Cultural Marxism.
>>6167 You are thinking about polygonal games. Original Fallout doesn't use polygons and isn't a first-person shooter. (And even with polygons it isn't always sensible to increase the framerate, since the shoddy programming practice of tying mechanics/physics to framerate which often happens with console games when there is no thinking ahead about potentially porting that to other platforms.) Anyway, here's a new NES game: In Böbl, you play fighting er trying to survive despite the attacks existence of your enemies, which are all very hard edge, know what I'm saying. While playing, I often said out loud when dying: Ow, the edge! http://forums.nesdev.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=19718

Anybody here play an instrument or have musical talent of some kind?
Play banjo and sing in the scots tradition. Wys?
I have been told I am the incarnation of Less Claypool on the bass.
>>6529 i really want to learn the accordion but have honestly no idea how to start doing that, especially considering how expensive instruments are
>>6529 I used to play alto saxophone when I was still in grade school. Because I really liked the idea of playing Jazz music because it was so cool. Though my original pick was going to be a flute because it would have been super cool to learn that from watching cartoons and such. But glad I didn't as flute is very hard to play with huge hands like mine.

Yes, an old "Melody King" 3/4 (parlor) guitar I got cheap on ebay. I had a Stefan Grossman instructional DVD on fingerpicked blues guitar, in which he said for this genre either get an old battered one from a junk shop, or a cheap new one. Pic related shows the guitar complete " bits of paper modification" to lift the strings high enough to stop fret buzzing. When I've got some money together I'll get a proper guitar "set up" done at a guitar shop. But in the meantime it does the job. I used it to record this : https://youtu.be/9sd0Hd3PygE

I am. But AFAIK it's not really peer to peer, is it? The files are stored on regular computers but the index of files is stored on some central servers. There's now something on i2p called MuWire that IIRC at least claimed to be actually decentralised, but I'm not sure. I couldn't manage to get it working anyway.

I'm sick of seeing stereotypical "california lifestyle" shit in concept cars. Here's a few examples: http://www.diseno-art.com/encyclopedia/concept_cars/honda_extreme.html http://www.diseno-art.com/encyclopedia/concept_cars/gmc_pad.html Yes, the examples are a bit dated but the dated nature of them just shows how stupid this all is. And, as it directly pertains to Leftism: in the 1930s the government created a specific architecture for rural areas, known as National Park Service Rustic. NPSR-national is just a styled blend of everything, but it was adapted by California's government for various uses around the state: in the north CA Park Rustic tends to lean towards clapboard-looking shacks while south of Fremont (a notable place, it's where the first railroads went through to Oakland) they went for plaster-based spanish designs. Both prominently feature the state's colors: white, red and brown. Spanish buildings trended red while Norcal ones trended brown. Why does this matter to leftists at all? Well in transportation specifically these colors were used to create what is now Caltrain's logo, back when the state government decided to just take over service completely from it's disinterested private operator, Southern Pacific. Notably SP's first class passenger colors were silver and red, and this transition marked an important step in American cultural development as (wait for it) Americans, including stereotypically rural ones that voted for Reagan all six times, voted for the government to provide a service that private industry was unwilling to continue. This was a hard fought victory, while Amtrak had already existed at that point this was a step in forcing the President to not stop Congress from buying Amtrak their own equipment (at the time, Amtrak was still using 30s-era legacy cars given over per the terms of it's creation). On a similar point, same goes for SF's Muni whose choice of grey/red reflects the growth of Norcal's economy relative to LA's; Muni's old yellow/white paint existed in response to LA's rise and LA is associated with warmer colors. None of this is referenced in automobile concept cars, because car concepts are what companies want people to be and not what they are. Though I find it ironic that with all the concept RVs, none of them depict the reality of RV homelessness which is propane tanks, small generators and a strong septic smell. In short as all this godawful bullshit over trying to make a "Californian" car happens, California already built itself it's own railway so to speak. And this happened while everyone was still drinking the oil industry's spookery about communism. The current attempts at making a "California" cultural automobile are as stupid and ridiculous as trying to make a "California" cultural soda can or "California" cultural mobility scooter. It pisses me off. By the way, pic related is what Californian architecture was from 1950-2000: a 10-lane freeway built on top of cut down railroad (originally it was four tracks, turned into four after a nearby tunnel fire). In LA I-10 flanks the Sunset Route.
Anon I might be stupid but I don’t get it. Interesting post though.

>>5979 Here are some more examples of what I'm talking about, from railroad stations around CA. Most were torn down since it's owner, like all companies, has little respect for what they create as it's all in service of profit. Car companies are the same but their concept designs are more alien and have essentially no relevance to Californians. It doesn't need to be for them to make money, and it's infuriating because they probably could design a "California" automobile in the same way Sacramento built a "California" railroad, so to speak.

>>5980 Anyway, compare it to anything found in one of these magazines. Generally speaking, the magazine's commissioned art will be way off base as to the reality most Californians experience. I use railroads as an example since class struggle is more obvious there. As it pertains to Socal architecture: modern capitalist architecture tends to be far, far less practical than actual Spanish architecture. This is because actual Spanish structures (and high-quality copies, like train stations) were built with plaster, masonry and concrete not timber covered with plaster. As a result actual Spanish designs have to be more conservative, and they have a much hardier look. Conduit has to go on top of walls, not neatly packed within them. This is extremely evident along SF's Embarcadero where old industrial warehouses remain next to brand new hipster cafes and "tech" spaces.
>>5981 Hey OP it’s dumb anon here. Thank you for explaining something so interesting. Architecture is way more indicative of things then people’d thing. Cheers g
