Not Everyone Is Mourning The Queen’s Death…

“Queen Elizabeth II’s death prompts mixed responses across the globe”

Yeah…it’s complicated…She really just rubber stamped whatever the British government decided to do.

I’m no expert on the power divide…but I’ve been under the impression that the crown delegates all legal matters to the government…even though, everything is happening under their sovereignty…which, theoretically, is power they could take back whenever they wanted…They don’t have to just allow the government to do anything.

Obviously…this makes the crown responsible, for whatever the government does…as well as how badly the government allows things to get for the public…various instabilities of society, etc.

Part of me wants to be sympathetic…but honestly…she has a lot of blood and treachery on her own hands…So, it’s not that simple.

I expect a lot of people are glad she is dead.

Gothic: Playable Teaser…

“In 2001 a legendary game series was born: Gothic!

In 2019 the series became part of THQ Nordic and being fans of the original games we began thinking and experimenting with what could be done. While exploring we realized Gothic is still iconic but simply remaking it wouldn‘t work.

Therefore we tried a new approach: re-imagining the whole thing. In order to be sure that is the way to go we decided to approach this situation totally unique: We want to give you an early prototype of the game and ask you to let us know and give us feedback. We called it Playable Teaser!

We are here to make this game great for you!”

“Bianca Gracia, founder of Latinos For Trump, says Trump clearly isn’t surrounded by evangelical latinos and God is furious with him. Just a few months ago she was singing his praises. Now we just need Lawyers For Trump, Plumbers For Trump, and all the rest to follow.”

How is it that so many deeply mentally ill people, have managed to seize the government?…

…It’s good that this one lost, but still…

AD&D Unlimited Adventures: Selling “Mods”…


….

Date: September 14, 2022

Legally selling content made with this software?…

My understanding of “mods” with these types of games/software, is that they were meant to be created and freely shared among the people who legally own the base game/software. I don’t believe there was ever any intention of allowing individual users to make a financial profit.

I’d not venture this, but one “hair splitter” (provided you were good at scenarios and story telling), is the question whether legal owners of UA could pay you for your time and effort, in creating scenarios and stories for UA. I wouldn’t be shocked if the software copyright owners still tried to force you to stop. In addition, I’m not sure how large that market would be.

I’d not treat UA like RPG/Game Maker software, however.

Personally, I’ve only ever intended on playing UA content made available for free, and I kind of see paying more money as contrary to the base spirit of the software. One of the biggest draws of this type of software, is that you get to play a lot of additional content for free.

The quality may be a mixed bag, but the whole concept revolved around hobbyists being able to create and share, and having a theoretically “endless” supply of new content to play.

(I mean no shade towards anyone in what follows. It’s just that with software of this nature, created for the hobbyist, I feel the sentiment is pertinent.)

Seems a lot of people these days want to turn these things into money making ventures. What’s depressing about this, is that we already live in a world with too much content for anyone to play in a lifetime. Not to get philosophical or depressive, I just really miss the days when getting video games was simple, the options were clear and professionally complete. It wasn’t all about endlessly sucking money out of peoples pockets. Or more darkly, exploiting the addictive nature of in game purchases, service subscriptions and endless DLC expansions.

There’s a lot of great/good games out there, but I’m not the biggest fan of where the video game industry has evolved to. I couldn’t imagine trying to credibly make money in the modern video game industry. And I wish more people were involved on a hobby level, for the mere joy of the experience and craft.

I have several pieces of software for making and editing games. I guarantee everyone, if I ever stumble into making a coherent end product, it will be released absolutely free to all.

…Whether or not anyone actually wants to play it?…Well…that’s their bit of insanity to work out. 😉

Biden Gives Speech On Ultra MAGA…

“President Biden recently gave a speech about the dangers of extremism in our country right now. He called out Ultra MAGA specifically but specified he wasn’t talking about all or even most republicans. Naturally, the Ultra MAGA crew lost their minds reacting to this speech.”

I’d take issue with a thing or two he [telltale fireside chat] is saying here…in fact, there are a few deep divides between us, which sometimes makes me hesitant to share his content…But I like the way he is staying on the troubling issue of MAGA unhinged extremists.

Mo Lyin’ made various gaffs in that speech…and it was disastrous, in a few regards…

…It’s also an insane notion, that democrats are good, while republicans are bad…when they’re virtually the same party, in real world practice…They’re both extremely bad.
