Lol, I was wondering why the page loaded up slower than usual as I was coming in here, but now that I know what YouTube videos can do to the pages it all makes sense.
Anyway, I know the feeling Gowi -- I've been getting swamped on my end too (not that I'm not always) thanks to this PC being an asshat, and also with the role-play I'm hosting. It's the main reason I'm not all that active in here.
On the subject of the role-play, I'm thinking me and tsukune will do one more post (or do a collab one) before you run into us, if that works for you Pudding. I wasn't sure if you were planning on encountering us literally in your first post or not.
Babymetal is probably the only "metal" music I can tolerate to. Normally I'm not a fan of metal, but Babymetal feels different from those conventional metal stuff. I think the one I liked was "Gimme Chocolate"? It's nice and weird at the same time, lol.
Meanwhile I've been up the whole night making and debugging this game for school work:
Retro game is already hard af enough to make. No need to even mention those AAA titles.
@tsukune I remember having to do that in school, fuck that. I made a tower defense game back when I had to, lost of people made platformers cause of the ease. Triple A titles have like 30 person teams with a head who knows how to do everyone's job at least as well as they do, if that were not the case most triple A titles would never come out.
I wanted to be a game Dev at one point...I had that dream crushed. Honestly not unhappy about that but yeah. You got this though, debugging is the hardest part and honestly most tedious.
@Eidolen Yeah. The maze game is a solo assignment (like any normal homework for school, lel), so everything from the maze design, the coding, to the debugging/QC are to be done individually. Of course, AAA tiles would comprise of much larger teams of people to do specific tasks (one group only focuses on programming a particular scene or dungeon, the other only works on modeling certain characters or monsters, etc), but it's still a hell lot of work to do.
People can complain about how certain games may be designed poorly (because a bad UI can affect the UE), but I don't get people who trash talk about delays and unconfirmed release dates, especially if you realize how much work is going on behind the scenes just to make one fucking game. ONE. Nowadays game companies are so afraid of morbid gamers and fans that they are becoming more reluctant to stamp an official release date in their teasers and trailers until they felt they are ready enough to release the game. :/
I'm not sure if I really want to become a GameDev once I finished college, not even sure if I want to go indie or work for the big companies (DigiPen is out of the question - I heard it's extremely hard to get in, even if you join their academic program), but even if I ever take up game-making, I'm more interested in the pre-production work (story and setting, concepts, scripting, etc) than the production (modeling, programming) or post-production (debugging, quality checks) parts. I am considering other industries that works on pure design or pure writing too.
@Shoryu Magami@Gowi I'm not really that obsessed with music, just a form of personal enjoyment as much as other media types (be it games, movies, books, etc). I'd say I don't have a really specific genre that I'm most into, because most music nowadays would comprise of more than one genre or a mesh of as many genres as they can squeeze into one song. Though, I largely enjoy those with orchestra, Celtic-ish or jazzy feels. I do like certain songs of many other genres, whether it's rock, pop... and even metal, which I wasn't interested in originally. I guess it's more of personal resonance with the individual songs rather than looking collectively based on genres.
I don't do any deep studies into music, even if I have military and symphonic band background, lol.
@Shoryu Magami@NekoMizu@NekoMizu@NekoMizu@NekoMizu@NekoMizu@NekoMizu yes, all 7 of you did i miss something i kinda saw what u talked about i hate solving bugs on my games idek if its worth it ya i like ol myusic but certain types of rock. believe it or not today i plugged in my mic (NOT WHERE U THINK I DID, JUST IN THE USB TRACK PERVERT *throws fridge at you*) and i recorded mysself singing Hirari Hirari just like a diarrhea sheep but guess what i really like it and i kept listening to it @NekoMizu ILL TELL THEM ABOUT IT HAAA hey guys i also wanted some stress relief so i wrote some more mindf*ck sta.sh/02655rowlrjt 21 more of those to come i made the hirari cover into a wav you can dl the cancer and listen to it here ufile.io/13b301 I swear on me mum if u post it on yt ill suffocate you i hope i did not disturb this classy conversation with my energetic stupidity...but u know im bakamusume. im just doing my job lmao
