And here I was enjoying a nice, mild winter before that front blew through :P

@  MoKat : (26 February 2017 - 03:25 PM)

Definitely long-sleeve shirt weather here today >.<

@  Sandata : (24 February 2017 - 02:30 PM)

Ditto. I also wear long-sleeves all year though...

@  furrykef : (24 February 2017 - 12:04 AM)

I don't ever walk outside without my shirt, 'cause nobody wants to see that.

@  Ishapar : (20 February 2017 - 10:31 AM)

True...but I guess I never walked outside without my shirt during February.

@  RedAuthar : (19 February 2017 - 09:41 AM)

Not too weird. A lot of Sunburns happen when it is cold because people don't expect it.

@  Ishapar : (19 February 2017 - 05:00 AM)

I got sunburned the first time this year. In February! Weird...

@  Ishapar : (17 February 2017 - 06:20 AM)

That must have been a pain in the neck. Sorry to hear that.

@  Sandata : (17 February 2017 - 06:15 AM)

Yep. Wound up having wilted flowers delivered to my Mrs. Very poor form ProFlowers...

@  Ishapar : (17 February 2017 - 05:55 AM)

Yeah, at least that holiday's over.

@  Uncle Ben : (13 February 2017 - 04:54 PM)

I'll admit it eats away at me

@  Ishapar : (13 February 2017 - 12:16 PM)

Pfft....major humbug to valentines...staying single.

@  Sandata : (13 February 2017 - 03:44 AM)

Then you get to save your money. It's a win-win!

@  Uncle Ben : (12 February 2017 - 08:20 PM)

Or if she's already taken...

@  RedAuthar : (12 February 2017 - 03:09 PM)

What if I haven't met her yet?

@  Sandata : (12 February 2017 - 09:46 AM)

Attention procrastinators! 2 days until Valentine's! Buy her something already!

@  Ishapar : (09 February 2017 - 03:17 PM)

Bring on the snow!

@  Ishapar : (20 January 2017 - 05:04 PM)

You're good, Red.

@  RedAuthar : (18 January 2017 - 11:14 PM)

New Avatar for the start of the year.....Only half a month late....

This analogy gets a little muddled because game designers in the indie scene usually take on other tasks like programming. But they're still considered separate jobs.

Any thoughts on the new Jumanji remake?

It does little to grab my attention. I'm very skeptical about remakes though. Last one I remember getting excited about was Total Recall and it was a serious let down for me...

Eh. I dun really think it needs a remake. I mean I'll probably go see it, but it's not exciting yet.

Also it's kinda a reboot sequel thing. So you don't really know what side of the line it falls on.

It was the same premise, but with a sci-fi theme and it all takes place in a house. It's worthwhile as far as being funny and entertaining.

I really enjoyed the original Jumanji.  Looks like the remake is taking ideas from the short-lived tv series.

Why not just a re release of the original Jumanji but this time have better looking CGI animals?

Because that went over so well with Star Wars. xD

But in all seriousness, just adding better effects doesn't necessarily improve a scene. In fact it can worsen a scene if they don't fit in with the rest of the show.

You can't take for granted that it'll be better, either. The dinosaurs in Jurassic World look way worse than the dinosaurs in the original Jurassic Park, even though JW was made over two decades later and had a larger budget even after adjusting for inflation. Well, the dinos look fine, actually... but the way they move is uncanny.

This is why Steven Spielberg is a great director. He knows the limits of his technology and how to work around them. A lot of directors today still haven't learned that lesson.

Agree with JP:  those dinosaurs still look real.

The tyrannosaurus and indominous looked pretty realistic, but the raptors looked very fake. But for the sake of outdated CGI, theirs no harm in polishing it up to look less crude.

 

Here for example. Neither can replace the real Jabba puppet, though.Jabba03.jpg

Yep, Jabba should stay a puppet.  It convinced me enough.
