Let's talk about toxic fandom for a minute, particularly the reaction against the new Monkey Island game's art style, and how negative fandom reaction is actually just a natural (yet irrational) sociological fear response to loss.
First, let me say that I am super jazzed to get another Monkey Island game from @grumpygamer himself and I will buy and enjoy whatever it is. I know it's going to be great. #videogames
Second, I don't get the crazy reaction to the 'new' art style. I can't see, objectively, what's wrong with it. Did people only want pixel art because that's the way the first two games (over two decades ago!) were made?

How 1 brave esports host sacrificed her multi-million dollar network, career & the careers of her associates to complain about imaginary misogyny🔦

OH.....& how she mentioned G4 hosts don't play the games they have to review😬 #gaming #G4TV #gamers
Gaming world spiraled into outrage earlier this month when Indiana @Froskurinn Black, host of Comcasts new gaming network @G4TV lectured viewers on finding her less “bangable” than previous hosts

Lecture so shrill & destructive,
Must be seen to be believed👀
@FDRLST #frosk #rant
Outburst racked up millions of views across social media & gaming outlets covering the story

Old fans of G4, unaware the network had relaunched, were blasted w/ the decadent state of their old favs 😵‍💫

"The worlds of culture and gaming are largely separate."

I've never read anything more profoundly wrong. A (mini)thread.
This piece in @bopinion that came out today argues that games are not culture because they are a closed system that is more about "participating in an event than watching an event." (Umm.. @Twitch anyone?)
Games are not and have never been closed systems. They are, by definition, GAMING CULTURES.

Generally speaking, facets of culture include behaviors and beliefs characteristic of a particular group. The major elements being symbols, language, norms, values, and artifacts.

1/ $NTDOY's price has been getting pummeled recently...and I couldn't be happier!

I already thought $NTDOY was cheap prior to the recent decline, but now it's an absolute bargain.

This thread will cover my thesis $NTDOY's immense value potential.

#valuestocks #videogames
2/ $NTDOY is one of the most beloved companies by gamers, and also one of the most misunderstood by investors.

Recurring comments about the company for almost a decade are things like “highly cyclical”, “archaic management”, “missed the opportunity”, “unable to adapt”.
3/ The console market is notoriously cyclical, especially at the level of individual companies.

Nintendo is the poster child of this pattern, with an almost perfect track record of a super successful console launch followed by a relative commercial failure for the next model.

Most of these creative businesses people daydream about are vanishing small, but none is so tiny as #TTRPGs. There are perhaps a hundred or so real, workaday-world jobs in the whole “industry”. And once you get past WotC, Paizo and Chaosium, that ground grows very sparse indeed.
People like to imagine some complex creative ecosystem of pros and non-pros, but in #TTRPGs, that line is blurred so much as to not exist. A nobody with no backing can win game of the year, and sell more than enough to make it all worthwhile all on their own.
I have worked professionally in #comics, #books, #videogames, and #cardgames and none of them approach the level of freedom and ease-of-liftoff of #TTRPGs. It is quite literally something you can just choose to try without a huge wind-up or buy-in from some tastemaker.

I've asked you about the best ways you know to market your game. Here are your answers:
#indiedev #indiegame #indiegames #IndieGameDev #gamedev #gamedevs #GameDeveloper #gamedevelopment #videogame #videogames #gamers #gaming #indiegaming
Leading Answer: Build a community organically. You can do this by doing two things

First off, stay active and consistent in posting progress about your project. Gifs and Videos are best. Post even if you feel like you have nothing to show
Secondly, engage with other creators - help them when possible, be social, try to grow THEIR project. What goes around comes around

Hoy tengo el placer (junto a otros desarrolladores de #videojuegos valencianos) de presentaros los #ValencianIndieBundle, unos estupendos packs de #Steam con #indiegames creados en la Comunidad Valenciana. ¡Os lo cuento todo en un HILO!

#indiedev #gamedev #videojuegosEspañoles
Hace unos días Steam anunció la posibilidad (todavía en beta) de crear “Packs colaborativos”, es decir lotes de juegos de diferentes desarrolladores que al comprarse en conjunto salen más baratos. Tenéis más info sobre el tema aquí: steamcommunity.com/groups/steamwo…
Como ya sabéis, a mi me gusta mucho probar este tipo de cosas. Hace tiempo ya había probado los packs de Steam con los juegos de @DevilishGames y os conté la experiencia aquí:

An article was published in the @nytimes today entitled "Children’s Screen Time Has Soared in the Pandemic, Alarming Parents and Researchers" and I have thoughts.

A thread.

nytimes.com/2021/01/16/hea…
As expected of mainstream journalism it is far more moral panic than actual information.

It’s a lot to digest and for the sake of brevity, I’m going to just hit the major points here 👇
I think the part that got edited out was how much parents appreciate that their children have the privilege of technology to stay connected, educated, and informed.

Unlike those who do not who and are being disproportionally left behind: theconversation.com/not-all-kids-h…

For #indiedevhour I'm sharing some findings on everyone's least favorite topic: marketing. Specifically, on Imgur. Many devs ignore Imgur, as I did until seeing @DavidWehle's GDU content, but I’ve been testing it and I have some data that might convince you to give it a go!

1/
Before I share numbers, understand that none of this is meant to sound like bragging! I don't enjoy marketing, I'm not good at it, I don't think I'm a guru or anything like that, it's just important and I've had a little bit of success recently that I believe is reproducible.

2/
First, one big difference between Imgur/Twitter is people on Imgur don't really follow eachother. This is actually great, because every post starts on a level playing field, with just as much chance to make it to the top.

You don't need to build a following to be seen.

Actors: a few thoughts regarding games acting. Thread. Firstly, it’s a great industry to get into if you’re not already & it’s continued to thrive through lockdown. I’ve been lucky to direct hundreds of games and it’s seeing me through this tough time. Maybe it can you, too.
Performance capture shoots are fewer during Covid. However, voice recording is busy. Many actors ask me how to get a voice agent: this is tough, as many don’t want anyone extra just now, but it’s also important to put a reel on @SpotlightUK (UK based).
Casting for games is very very fast: clients (ie games developers) often send a brief to an Outsourcer (studios who specialise in games and bring the ‘talent’ on board, ie you and me) or to the CD, fairly close to the date they want to start auditions.

The #COVID scenario would want you to try new gadgets. In life, it is really important to explore and settle for optimal solutions rather than the "stated best" and so these are 5 reasons I opted for @LGMobileGlobal #G8xThinQ #dualscreen compared to @SamsungMobile #Fold2
1. Like any other foldable phone , ThinQ is also bulky but Dual screen comes as an accessory which is detachable when you want to not multitask but use a simple phone. Thus instead of using bleeding edge and expensive tech, LG has made something less impressive but more practical
2. Although both phones does different things better than the other, for multi-tasker as me, it is more practical to use two apps like Whatsapp + Google or Google Maps + Restaurant reviews on two seperate screens rather than Samsung requiring split-screen software implementation Image

We have been added to @giantbomb, the largest video game database online!

Why does this matter?

@Twitch uses GiantBomb to list all of their games available for streaming! This was the first step to get us listed on #Twitch so users can start tagging the game. Image
& we will start showing up in the Twitch lists and categories!

We have already submitted new box art to be displayed on Twitch which should start showing up as soon as tomorrow!

Now begins the process of targeting mid/top tier Twitch streamers to get them to play & live stream

Ok so here's a long ramble of thoughts from the team behind #UPLINK. GET READY....
We talk a real big game. Like #SHAQ big.  For NY's biggest videogame exhibitor, you need to. It's NY after all and it's ONE TOUGH PLACE TO BE.  Luckily we always try to back it up.
But the reality is, we're really just a small group of volunteers who really, really love #videogames. Videogames, PC games, tabletop games...heck probably even the games on cereal boxes. It shaped who we are and our friendships.

So before kids, my wife and I got a wii. Our bro-in-law (an adult) create a character named Dildos. I didn’t remember this. I do now.

I came home and my kids were playing bowling and I thought, of their dusted off the wii. And then I head them calling each other Dildos. Smh.
And I had to be really calm and be like let’s delete this discreetly. And I know they are onto me. And so I’ve block google traffic like a third world dictator. And I had a very angry call with my (adult) brother who proudly declared it a joke years in the making.
And I had to give credit where credit was due. He certainly played a long game. In unrelated news, I’ve just started Super Mario 3 and I’m going straight through to the end. This is the best video game ever made. Don’t @ me. #videogames #wii #safesearch

My biggest hurdle in life is I am so damn interested in EVERYTHING. I want to learn more about it all. This impacts all aspects of my life. Here are some examples. (Thread?)
#RPG: I want play/GM so many types and genres of games. D&D, Star Wars, Star Trek, Vampire the Masquerade, Changeling the Dreaming, etc. If I could, I'd do them all simultaneously. But my time is limited. Plus I move on to the next thing that interests me, leaving stuff behind.
#boardgame: See above. Theme is a big attractor, but I love all kinds of board game mechanisms.

#videogames: Also same.

I don't exactly know what possessed me to do this right now - but as a #FormerQATester this is what happens in my head every time I run into a clipping/collision "bug" in a game.
LOW - Clipping/Collision - Boralus - Sanctum of the Sages : Player character's feet clip through green rugs in the Sanctum of the Sages portal room in Boralus - 5 of 5

When a player walks into the Sanctum of the Sages portal room in Boralus, there are two green, oblong rugs with
gold trim on the East (by entrance) and West (by the Silithus/Nazjatar portals) ends of the room. When a player character stands on top of these rugs, the model's feet partially clip through the rug. This bug occurs at 100% reproduction rate, with all Alliance classic and Allied
