      Oh man, this is not helping the image of a programmer in the slightest. What a crock of shit.

      Definitely, I'm glad it's this way. I'm learning a crapload and getting paid for it at the same time :D

      I still have mine, I vacuum it every month and replaced the HD with a huge one. It just keeps accumulating psplus games I never get around to playing.

  9. So, the interview is here at last. I'm 45 minutes away from my hour to shine and convince them I'm God's gift to Traffic Management. Wish me luck guys!

  10. Well, that's that. Just gave my employer my notice following weeks of deliberation, interviews, and stress. Now ready to start a new chapter of my life! Oh, and spend more time on MapCore. xD

  13. Whew finally have my first game in the Sony store. That was an intense development process. Learned so much and am looking forward to doing it again with the lessons I've learned.

      I have a lot of trouble believing that asm.js can come anywhere near native speeds.

      That said computers are so fast these days that doesn't really matter. Very cool that people can export the game to web. I'd like to see how asm.js compares to Nacl.

  15. Surf maps are astonishing to me.

    1. AlexM

      AlexM

      Awww yeah. Aphex Twin on the soundtrack :D

      I've never been able to surf on these maps. So I'm more impressed the guy managed to stay up for more than half a second.

  16. I submitted my first commercial game to Sony today. It was hard mentally to transition from hobbyist game developer to treating it like a business.

      I'll post in work release when it actually makes it through the approval process. I think you may have seen screens on my twitter.

      Nevertheless here's a shot :

  18. Starting to notice accounts where their only post is for funding kickstarter or advertising a game. I hope this doesn't become a trend. I've seen some other forums get swamped in "check out our new game on the appstore" or "kickstarter this" by accounts that don't contribute outside of posts advertising their projects. One of the main things I like about mapcore is that there's a lot of varied discussion. Am I being too anal?

      Just to clarify I'm talking about account with 1 post advertising something. It's quite possible it's a bot.

      dont think there's any rules in particular. For instance on tigsource it really started spilling into a lot of the discussion forums so they made a separate forum for that kind of post.

  22. Just had my first hot yoga class in 18 months. Pretty brutal but I havent been in shape in the last 6 months so it's gonna be tough getting into it. Luckily I took one of the easier classes to start. There's one class that's basically military pushups in a sauna for 75 mins.

    1. AlexM

      AlexM

      Oh yeah, that's true. The class was me and 20 gorgeous women in yoga pants.

      I think it was really obvious how hard I was trying to act cool about it. I have the worlds worst poker face.
