Beware the Frog

Everyone (rightly) dunking on that Forspoken teaser even though this writing style was already quite evident in the first trailer everyone loved a year ago.

So if your RPG character or fantasy hero walks into a tavern with ‘30 gold’ in his pocket, there’s a good chance he could buy the inn with that - check out the prices on some of the buildings in the 14th century here: medieval.ucdavis.edu

But as a small coin, it packs a big punch; valued at 25 denarii an aureus represented probably a bit more than a month’s pay for a skilled worker. It was 1/9th of the ANNUAL pay of a Roman soldier in the time of Augustus. 4/

I’m honestly surprised it doesn’t have a better handle on dragons.

The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life the Universe and Everything #midjourney

Just realized that in my previous attempt I’d copied and pasted the phrase with commas, which causes Midjourney to separate it into three different clauses, de-emphasizing the “question” part.

Everyone’s already thought of generating D&D character portraits with Midjourney, but asking for tabletop miniatures makes the result so much cuter! twitter.com

Awww look at these shiny animated gifs the gundam editor in Last Call BBS generates 😍

(I got my YouTube backdrop done today, I could go and buy an IRL kit, like, tomorrow or something 🫣)

Oh, scratch that, there’s only 12,000 new D&D levels. That’s a lot more manageable. Right?

Turns out they also released a whole ‘nother campaign for X’BPGH two weeks ago, which means I’m gonna have to come back to the last three levels I didn’t complete.

Hurray for infinite Dungeons & Diagrams levels in the last-call version of Last Call BBS \o/

(I’m saving the new gundam for last. Only 99999997 more random levels to complete. And then I have to check the other games for new content.)

@zachtronics

Our latest (and last!) game, Last Call BBS, has left Early Access!

In the past month we added a ton of new puzzles, fixes, and features, and even a new model kit.

Look for an update on Game Pass shortly, and DRM-free releases in the next week or two.

Ah, I guess it makes sense as a sort of “hard mode.”

Is Sea of Thieves about to start selling in-game gold for real money, or have they just been infected by ambient games-as-a-service design? 🤨 eurogamer.net
