I'm still waiting to see if my attempts to sign up for EI have gone through or not. Phone lines are impossible to get through.

@  furrykef : (23 March 2020 - 05:58 PM)

There's talk that they may have found a cure for the virus. Here's hoping.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 07:27 PM)

Yeah, our D&D sessions and just going out for drinks at local breweries is basically gone right now. We're thinking of doing remote sessions but it's still not the same.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 03:28 PM)

It just sucks cause my friends and I can't do our usual weekend stuff cause most of the restaurants we go to are closed or takeout only

@  furrykef : (22 March 2020 - 11:20 AM)

I know exactly how you feel.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Yeah, there's a part of me that, as an introvert, should be totally OK with the concept of staying home. But there's also a huge part of me that is incredibly unnerved by the concept of having the choice taken away. Before, it felt like something I wanted to do, but now it just feels lonely and sad.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Ah, no worries. Thanks for clarifying. <3

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 05:31 AM)

I absolutely recognize that this is going to have a change in how we do things, for better or for worse. There's going to be some positive changes out of this and some negative changes as well. I get this is something we haven't seen in 100 years.

 

If I came off as insensitive, I should apologize and explained what I meant a bit more.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 05:23 AM)

You misunderstand. My daily life consists of me going to work and going home. When I order food out I usually get take out anyways. See I work 2nd shift so my options of what I can/can't do is limited by time anyways and hasn't effected me as much, the only real thing being I can't sit down at the diner when I get out at 11pm-12am on a Friday night. So when I say I'm not changing much of my daily life it's because my routine is at a point where my interactions with people, in person, are limited to begin with

@  A Fox in a D... : (20 March 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Regardless of how you feel Covid affects you personally, there's an absolute change this puts on everyone globally, especially small businesses and at-risk people. It will influence how we look at the media landscape, how we deliver entertainment and services, and workplace practices going forward, some long term, some short, some good and some bad. These sort of pandemics don't come around with zero wake, and we've already seen that and are seeing it right now. If you don't think anything is different, then you aren't looking hard enough.

@  A Fox in a D... : (20 March 2020 - 10:09 AM)

No, Covid is it's already costing businesses and lives, and it's made life difficult for just about everyone I know, particularly in my industry where we've having to scramble to ship games from home. What you're doing is unwise and irresponsible, and you're not the only person in existence, so you can keep your "not really".

@  Wulfsbane : (19 March 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Not really. I'm still going about it as if nothing's different

@  GetCrazyWith... : (18 March 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Covid is going to screw up all our lives

@  RedAuthar : (17 March 2020 - 09:43 PM)

I know your pain Ben, I know your pain...

@  Shadow : (16 March 2020 - 08:13 PM)

Lucky you.

@  Wulfsbane : (16 March 2020 - 05:16 AM)

I still gotta work

@  A Fox in a D... : (16 March 2020 - 12:03 AM)

It's only boring if you make it so. I'm stuffing my quarantine with as much art as I can muster.

@  furrykef : (13 March 2020 - 07:16 AM)

Stupid COVID-19 got chess club canceled. I guess I should prepare myself for a particularly boring next few months.

@  furrykef : (24 February 2020 - 08:05 PM)

Don't post videos in the Shoutbox.

From what I've heard, Bollers and Penders did not like each other very much.

 

Yeah pretty much. I heard a story, so dunno if it's true or not, but basically Penders was a right prick to work with. Penders expected Bollers and other writers to follow what he had laid out in the series and what he was going to lay down in upcoming story arcs, despite the fact that Penders wasn't the editor. So he wanted them to follow his work and read his scripts, but he refused to follow any of their own work if he didn't have to. And supposedly knowing this, Bollers did that storyline which resulted in a bunch of Echidna characters being killed off by using them in those Egg Grape things. Ken was supposedly really butthurt about that. And if that story is true, then it's all the more awesome.

 

The Egg Grapes made Eggman a psychopath. Might as well have had him built a bomb powerful enough to destroy reality itself.

You know this might be old news, but I discovered Penders was the cause for why the game Dark Brotherhood was so awful. The lawsuit he filed it caused severe budget cut backs, and the game never fully finished past the beta stage. The bad midi music in it was meant to be placeholders to get an idea of what the real music would be like, had they were able to even pay to have a soundtrack made. Much of the expanded worlds were scrapped, as well as the gameplay locked in while still in its rough beginning stages.

The first time since Spinball Sega flirted with the western Sonic franchise and Penders cucked everyone over for original the enchilada donut steel destiny.

I wouldn't blame Penders for that. Yeah, it'd probably have been a much better game if he hadn't sued, but the lawsuit really shouldn't have affected the game's budget in that way.

You forget BioWare is a small company, and probably not used to lawsuits.

Or at least it was before EA bought it. I don't suppose you have a source though, Shadow?

Back then they were a small company. But then they caught fire with Dragon Age and Mass Effect

Good one!

 

But, to clarify, I think he wants a web link (url maybe?).
