Happy 2009 !!!

January 1, 2009 -

Best wishes for a fab 2009 to everyone in the GamePolitics community!

I'm taking Mrs. GP to a movie today (Milk), then dinner with the folks and maybe catch some of the Rose Bowl (rooting for Penn State).

How are you spending your day?

Heh, I got RickRolled on New Year's Eve only a matter of minutes before midnight (maybe over an hour, since I don't remember when it happened), and I laughed harder than I had in a good long time.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Spent a good portion of the time watching the all day Looney Toons marathon on Cartoon network, one wonders why they show tom and jerry regularly yet never show looney toons.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Spent the day getting my head around the Java Observable Interface and trying to bend my old Z80 head around Object-Orientated programming.

It's a very useful way of coding, but so easy to let things fly out from under the radar, you have to keep a close eye on the design specs.

I think languages can get to a stage where they become too inter-connectible, for example, Java interfaces make for a useful tool, but unless you design with them in mind from the start, they can cause more confustion than assistance. This is not good when you are a University student who is learning the language whilst writing a project, since time is limited and it's a pain to keep going back and re-writing sections based on newly gained information about the language.

From what I recall the Swing interface doesn't implement Hardware graphics acceleration, so I might also have to learn JOgl in order to do the main screen of my Uni project, yet more to add to the ever-growing list...

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

My day was spent wondering why instead of going into the nice warm house, I slept in the backseat of my car. I blame 2008.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Played a little GTA IV, but mainly watched the Rocky movies.

I watched LSU whip Georgia Tech 38-3 in the Chick-Fil-A(Peach) Bowl last night.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Well, I just finished one file that needed to be transcribed for work and am going ot put off the other one until tomorrow -- it's the holiday, I can do that!  Also, just got Guitar Hero World Tour for Christmas from my hubby, so I'll most likely play a few rounds of that.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Playing video games and watching bowl games (including the Rose Bowl).

I'm not a big movie-theater person, but I would like to see "Frost/Nixon" sometime.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Frost/Nixon makes me laugh.. Frost has a reputation here in the UK for being a decrepit old senile presenter, and in the film he's some trendy young go-getter. xD

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Well it's not set in modern times, Nixon died in the 90s. According to wikipedia the interviews it was based off of took place in 1973.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Yeah I know.. but it's like imagining your parents as children. Just doesn't work in your mind.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

I got beaten up and had my glasses nicked on New Years Eve, so mostly I've been loafing around, squinting at Prince of Persia.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

bummer... on the beatdown, not the game...

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Heh thanks.. chance of me getting the specs back though, a couple of people helped us out and one of them got hospitalised; so the police are getting involved, taking a statement from me tomorrow.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

I'm probably going to spend today, and my day off tomorrow, working on leveling my paladin in WoW to 80.  I should get to 73 by today, and with any luck 74 by the end of the weekend.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Well, I have to replace the breaks on my van, finish setting up my dev server among other things.

Papa MidnightWith GTA5 (to date) failing to even provide indication of a PC release, I'm realising that this might be the first GTA game that I have not played (outside of Chinatown Wars) since the series inception.04/19/2014 - 8:14am
IanCSo im guessing a bunch of edutainment games, which a lot of people elsewhere are going gaga over, dot count as classics? Okay. If you don't mind me, i have a sudden urge to play Putt Putt....04/19/2014 - 6:15am

Matthew Wilsonit is a video talking about why certain games/products/consoles do well, and others do not. he back it up with solid research.04/18/2014 - 3:56pm
Andrew EisenI'm not keen on blind links. What is it?04/18/2014 - 3:45pm

MaskedPixelanteNumber 3: Night Dive was brought to the attention of the public by a massive game recovery, and yet most of their released catalogue consists of games that other people did the hard work of getting re-released.04/17/2014 - 8:46pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 2: If Humongous Entertainment wanted their stuff on Steam, why didn't they talk to their parent company, which does have a number of games published on Steam?04/17/2014 - 8:45pm
MaskedPixelanteNumber 1: When Night Dive spent the better part of a year teasing the return of true classics, having their big content dump be edutainment is kind of a kick in the stomach.04/17/2014 - 8:44pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.giantbomb.com/articles/jeff-gerstmann-heads-to-new-york-takes-questions/1100-4900/ He talks about the future games press and the games industry. It is worth your time even though it is a bit long, and stay for the QA. There are some good QA04/17/2014 - 5:28pm
IanCErm so they shouldn't sell edutainment at all? Why?04/17/2014 - 4:42pm
MaskedPixelanteNot that linkable, go onto Steam and there's stuff like Pajama Sam on the front-page, courtesy of Night Dive.04/17/2014 - 4:13pm
Andrew EisenOkay, again, please, please, PLEASE get in a habit of linking to whatever you're talking about.04/17/2014 - 4:05pm
MaskedPixelanteAnother round of Night Dive teasing and promising turns out to be stupid edutainment games. Thanks for wasting all our time, guys. See you never.04/17/2014 - 3:44pm
