Steam community mods are absolutely worthless human beings. I learned today exactly how pointless it is trying to enforce any sort of principle or good practice on the platform, which in its moderation/content control aspect is far shittier than any of the social media platforms.

today, someone attempted to scam me and hijack my account by impersonating a mod. first time I've experienced this in my 16 years on Steam. they tried this roundabout bullshit process that relied on instilling fear in you about your account being suspended, which immediately raised red flags. I played along for a bit and took screenshots of everything, then told the guy to fuck off and reported the profile he used to contact me. I then posted the whole story with evidence in the general community forum, thinking naively that someone should know and do something about this, particularly since it was a real mod being impersonated and the methods the scammer had used could reasonably convince more vulnerable people of his false identity. not only did nobody give a shit about what I posted, but I got flak for bringing it up since it apparently happens all the time and all the real mods have scammer doppelgangers running around with impunity. apparently I should have known this already. the cherry on top: I posted a direct link to the scammer's profile and said to watch out for him, and I got a warning for identifying him individually. lol. his profile's still active.

I wish I could push a button and wholesale annihilate the gaming community while still being able to play video games.

You can report someone by using the menu on the top right of their Steam Profile.
Your report will then be reviewed. But it can take a while.
In the meantime you can block them.
But yeah, the Steam forums themselves are not a really nice place in general.
I find it better to stick with the Community Pages of the Games themselves: their Reviews, Screenshots, Discussions,...
Or reddit. It's usually more wholesome.

yeah, I reported the guy first before posting about it in the forums. again, in detail. I don't expect anything will be done.

Got up to about 60% of the way through Wily's castle in Mega Man II after work before I got tired of it.

Also slowly chipping my way through Gremlins 2, maybe 20 minutes a week.  Up to 4-2 so far.

Finally finished Black Mesa. I can kinda see why it took 15 years of development now. The design and detail that went into the game is insane. These guys pretty much pushed the Source 1 engine to its limit.

Beat Miles Morales. Got to I think final boss of Streets of Rage 4 and can't beat the damn twins.

So I assume it's worth playing? (Miles) SoR 4 is great - keep trying!

Bah, who cares - who wants a 720P OLED?

Good. Hopefully no new Nintendo console until next year or 2023. 

If the chip shortages continue (which is likely why this "upgrade" came now so they would have something for this holiday season to compete with the non-existant PS5 and Series X/S shortages.

Not even a screen upgrade, really - a bit larger, but still 720P.

Oh, the nerds are angry because they didn't get what they demanded? What else is new?

I think it's more a case of "why?" than anything else...

I platinumed the original, so more swinging around is always fun for me. Story slightly better than original, some new abilities, definitely shorter. It's pretty fun.

I have yet to play through the first one (glad I waited and got all the PS5 enhancements), so hence why I haven't played Miles Morales (yet).

Yeah do that first. May even have a bundle still.

A Plague Tale: Innocence - PS5

 

I don’t normally play stealth type games unless they have a more guns ablaze route but got it free with the PS Plus subscription this month.

 

I stuck with it as it looks good and I’m enjoying it now. About half way thru I think.

XCOM: Enemy Within

My gaming activity has to be limited for the next week or so though, so no games that require WSAD movement. Still trying to recover from this carpal tunnel shit. Getting old sucks (at least physically)

I also need to get a new gaming chair soon, or at least an office chair with armrests. My current chair I've been sitting in for the past five years doesn't have any. Could be partially the cause of this CT in the first place.

      This is just a rant.
       
      I am so fucking sick of people dismissing Ae's post-Chiastic output ("where are the tunes?!") and recommending their early albums instead as "absolute masterpieces" with "soul" and "melody" and "blah blah blah".
       
      It just screams "I am a stupid, impatient, close-minded, casual, basic, stuck-in-the-past, not-capable-of-listening, knowing-nothing-about-music-melody-rhythm-and-structure, accidentally-bumped-into-IDM-when-I-was-young-and-now-I-am-old-and-tired-with-kids-in-need-of-easy-fun, rather-listen-to-boards-of-canada-because-deep-emotions-tunes-nature-and-geocatching-for-rare-eps, I-can't-hum-it-in-a-shower dumbass".
       
      I fucking hate those idiots (especially when they talk about melodies when they actually mean timbres...).
       
      I absolutely get they don't like the music (and that is perfectly fine, don't get me wrong) but their arguments and points are asking for a punch in their faces. So fucking stupid it actually hurts.

      So for the next day and a half, Humble Bundle has a cheap deal on some shitty games as usual, but more importantly this deal includes a copy of Gamemaker, which is a seemingly entry-level game making application. The bundle altogether is only $12 to get the Android Export portion which I'm guessing means you can publish your games on Android for like 10 zillion people to not see. Here's the link: https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly to the bundle.
       
      I watched a couple tutorial videos about the absolute basics, doesn't seem too crazy. The code is something I've never delved much into, though I can dabble and not fuck shit up too much (I can use Processing okay for a beginner, and I could usually do really simply HTML shit...)
       
      Anyway, is that actually a good deal? And would I be getting in over my head? Like, I'm thinking of it as a means of just trying my hand at getting some simple/weird game ideas down, not like making Call of Duty for Android or anything. And more so just to try my hand at some more advanced code-style project stuff. Obviously Gamemaker's whole appeal is that you don't need to know code, but I'm quite sure I'd have to use some to really get through to an end product 'finished' game.
       
      Has anyone used Gamemaker? Or, have any of you made little games yourselves? Advice, thoughts? I mean, yeah, it's only $12, but I'm just curious about any thoughts on that system or if I shouldn't waste my time unless I would really wanna go head first down that path of making games (which I don't).

      Anyone else been playing Elite: Dangerous recently? I've got it and have been enjoying it like hell. I've recently been playing around Alliance territory in my ultra-modified Viper Mk III destroying any wanted ships in my path. Although it's amazing, the game still feels a little empty, but I'm sure the developers will flesh it out more soon enough.

      And the winner of the poll is: BOSS BATTLE THEMES
       
      So, as with other WATMM music projects this is a call-out to all producers/composers/musicians on WATMM and beyond interested in contributing. The theme of this album is 'Video Game Boss Battle Themes' which are often characterized as being grandiose, foreboding, intense, etc: an ambient album this will NOT be (though you can do an ambient interpretation if you want)! Mini-Boss themes work as well: pretty much any confrontation with a powerful enemy where the music changes to suit the situation!
       
      There is such a tremendous pool of amazing material to cover and/or remix for this project! That being said I am not adverse to original compositions so long as they would sound suitable during a 'Boss Battle' of sorts. Also, feel free to submit as many tracks as you'd like!
       
      So, here are the important rules:
       
      1 - Due date for submitted tracks was November 1st, but I want to get more submissions in without people feeling too pressured so it's now JANUARY 15th, 2015!
      2 - Submit your completed track(s) to [email protected] using a file sharing service like WeTransfer, Mediafire, etc.
      3 - Submit your track(s) in a lossless format such as WAV or FLAC. Do NOT add a huge amount of compression (unless this is the effect you are trying to achieve) or otherwise attempt to master your track as all the tracks will be mastered for the album so as to have a more cohesive sound/volume. In your final mixdown please try to leave at 1-2dB of headroom.
      4 - Album will, at the very least, be a free release on Bandcamp. If there is sufficient interest I may look into a physical pressing, but we shall have to see how this goes.
       
      In the spirit of WATMM's Xmas comps all submissions will likely make it onto the final album unless I get a ridiculous # of them and then we may have to whittle the # down a tad to keep to a reasonable playtime.
      In order to avoid a situation in which everyone makes covers of the same track (e.g, a 15 track album of covers of SMB 3's Boom Boom Theme) feel free to post in this topic with regard to the theme you'd like to cover, that way people will not all chose the same ones hopefully.
       
      Alright, I am very excited to hear what you all come up with!
