i hate this mod so much but it has given me clarity because nowhere else do you get to see people making the EXACT same game with “modern” music and level design so that it’s obvious just how much those things suck

i wish whoever decided to migrate the MTG wiki *TO* fandom.com a very fuck off forever

out of town for a week visiting polycule in undisclosed location

… i have kind of needed a vacation for three years now

Impromptu take (aka hypothesis): the reason game design has suddenly leapt forward and become a discipline in the last 40 years is exactly *because* of deregulated capitalism. a bunch of systems-oriented people who are really good at figuring out how to do economic incentives for particular goals got locked out of putting that skill to the use of bettering the world in the West and turned it into a creative and academic outlet instead. QA leads could be fixing the tax code, system designers could be reinforcing the FDA, but politics in the US got captured from the top down.

The reason my job sucks so goddamn much is because I’m supposed to help people fix problems, but I do not often have the resources at my disposal to ensure problems get fixed and instead have to get hung up on things like “contract does not cover hardware” or “billable hours”.

Okay, I’ve gotten into Fallen London, Homestuck, and Umineko. What am I supposed to do next? Is it too late to add blaseball?

prisoners: hijack a prison bus while being evacuated, resulting in it crashing and exploding, causing godzilla to notice and turn back towards Japan

godzilla raids again contains the line “we’ve spotted a Godzilla-like object” and I’m going to be thinking about that for a while

even if it’s probably just the subtitler being overly literal
