[b]Get It![/b] is a very old-school game (the level = the screen). Catch items, avoid the baddies. http://www.gravelstudios.com/getit/ What I found very unusual about is that the speed of the player is the same as the speed of the items and enemies bouncing around. So my initial reaction was that it's "objectively" a design mistake, but a few minutes later I got into the flow of things. You just have to anticipate a bit how the things are bouncing. Also has a two-player mode!

Remember those dubious cartridges promising to contain a truckload of games? The promised number of games turned out to be a very postmodern way of counting, with different modes or levels of the same game being presented as two or three different games. Graphic assets and sound was also shared between the titles. In this wonderful tradition is [b]31 in 1 Real Game![/b] by, once again, the Mojon Twins, featuring utterly pointless low-res nudity (I'm not complaining) and parodies.
Download is right at the top of this list: http://www.nesworld.com/article.php?system=nes&data=neshomebrew I found Rendezvous and Zombie Calavera Prologue the most interesting.

One little thing that irks me about many homebrew titles is how moving diagonally works. They often just add together the movement of each axis, so you move faster diagonally. I'm pretty sure that's not how it works in real life… I also believe that the programmers of the old games back in the day usually took care to avoid that counter-intuitive issue. For example, your spaceship in R-Type does not move faster diagonally and the player can make more precise movements by hugging the left edge of the screen and pressing diagonally.

>It's just larping
We're talking about video games here, so I don't see why that's a problem, but I've got other points to make. Another thing I've noticed is that higher resolution makes the game a lot laggier. playing the game with the original resolution completely gets rid of the lag (but then the screen is tiny). it's not like the game looks any better, we still use the exact same sprite the only difference the higher resolution make is showing more of the map than you should actually be able to see, at time it even results in you being able to see a black void on the screen which you wouldn't be able to see in the original game.

I had a look at some other titles on there. [b]What Remains[/b] is a short 2019 "adventure" (or rather walking sim) set in 1986 with a plot like Captain Planet on cocaine. They did not try for a very authentic 1986 feel (for example, I don't think "paywalled" was a term in use back then). Got a few sensible chuckles out of me and the same number of eyeroll moments. This is really an actual piece of software that one could unironically label Cultural Marxism.

You are thinking about polygonal games. Original Fallout doesn't use polygons and isn't a first-person shooter. (And even with polygons it isn't always sensible to increase the framerate, since the shoddy programming practice of tying mechanics/physics to framerate which often happens with console games when there is no thinking ahead about potentially porting that to other platforms.)

Anyway, here's a new NES game: In [b]Böbl[/b], you play [i]fighting[/i] er trying to survive despite the [i]attacks[/i] existence of your enemies, which are all very hard edge, know what I'm saying.

The amazon basin civilization(s) probably lived in green cities kind of like this but they died because people like Fancisco de Orellana coofed up and down the amazon river, and plagues did the rest. By the time later European explorers came around, the jungle had overgrown and hid all the ruins and everyone thought the early explorers who reported dense populations and developed infrastructure were bullshitters talking about el dorado and the fountain of youth and whatever. The evidence now suggests that the rainforest is at least in part man-made.

Permaculture isn't more labor intensive if you set it up correctly. There's more up-front cost design-wise, but once the system is going, it's going and you just harvest and do a little maintenance. It's not only the method of agriculture that has to change, but the entire ethos. People don't realize how little (i.e. not at all) humans understood biology and nature at the time agricultural practices were formed and how much of the work was unnecessary or wasteful. With capitalism, wasteful practices become effectively set in stone because the process is commodified and there are financial interests to protect regarding the wasteful processes.
>pay someone to remove "waste" from the system
>pay someone else to get "fertilizer" to put into the system to keep it alive
If you set up the system according to how organisms naturally function you aren't fighting upstream the entire time. You let the "waste" turn into fertilizer, as it does naturally in any ecosystem. You alPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

That was just a fucking parallel you mong. If you are too illiterate to understand, let me use another one. Nature and Earth is like our house. Sometimes we want to demolish a wall in our house to make a larger room, or we want to attach an expansion to it. There is nothing wrong with that - the "original" form of the house isn't sacred. However, if the wall in question is load-bearing, or the expansion would destabilize the foundations, you DON'T do it, lest you be an utter idiot as you are putting your home in danger of collapse. Same shit applies to nature.

Cars should be a secondary option, for people who need it. 1 car per person if they need it. Most people own and drive cars because of necessity. If, after public transport is established properly, they still need or want a car, then they can have it.

claims that everyone who touched "black snow" got thyroid cancer in 6 years, which isn't true, because the "black snow" was the result of the fires in reactor 4, there is no fire nowadays but you still get radiation poisoning from the radiative decay. You also can't treat radiation poisoning if you reach that stage (thyroid cancer) because once it's in there you are fucked, developing thyroid cancer depends on the dose and genetics, If you don't absorb radioactive iodine, you don't need to treat yourself with iodine tablets either

David Attenborough just put out a new documentary that was really well done, and was actually pretty realistic about the coming climate crisis. Didn't pull any punches like most hopium filled publications do, and as far as I know I don't know why a >90 year old man would want to spend what are the last years of his life bullshitting people about something he's done for half of his life or more.

Talked about the desertification of oceans, of land, of sopsoil being exhausted by our farming practices, overpopulation, temperature rises and what that means for humans and the wider ecosystem at large. These are things we have to consider as communists. Personally, it has always been my belief since I became aware of just how big an issue this was right around the time I left college that human society as we know it globally will be knocked down a civilization or two even. It was a pretty tough thing to realize, as I was also awash with enthusiasm for the material I had read from Marx, Lenin, Engals and coming to learn more about the USSR, China and such. Anyway, what I'm ultimately saying is that when I post on here ultimately its from a dark place because I feel like while capitalism will die any hope for what we know as socialism very well goes with it.

Ultimately though for the purposes of this post the documentary was well done and while it had some liberal solutions at the end, I know a socialist world order (that won't exist in our lifetimes in the developed form we need to beat this issue) could have been able to beat this issue. Producing for use value would be a huge first. Capitalism won't, and I know liberals can't even face that prospect. I think the conclusions cannot be ignored just because of hope and belief socialism will triumph somehow, and at least acknowledging a possible end to everything we know has to be considered.

NOTE: While the documentary is available through a certain paid service, I don't see why certain free platforms wouldn't have it. I hear there are things called trackers that carry it in high quality and other formats, and a certain bay. If you haven't seen it, do it for the knowledge, for a love of animals or a combination of both.

If you're an OK web developer, you've read stuff about writing clean code, and are constantly thinking about how you could've made your work cleaner, there is more than enough work.

I know a lot of developers, most of them are mediocre and I wouldn't hire them at my own company. 20% are really bad, 80% are mediocre at best, 20% are good and I would hire them. Of around 50-80 developers that I know, only 1 has a shitty paying job. The rest have jobs that pay pretty good. None have trouble finding jobs.

I've tried scouting for frontend developers, there are none that actually know how to code, 90% of them bullshit their way through jobs and are very very unkowledgable about the craft. I suck at frontend development, and I still know more than they do. There's a shit ton of jobs out there and not enough developers, let alone competent ones.

Finally, to become a good developer, you have to practice a lot. The best practice comes from work. Don't be scared of asking for jobs that don't pay well at first.

Instead of buying a course you could try pirating it. if you can't get a VPN try direct downloading. You can find a bunch of sites hosting rapidgator, nitroflare, etc. Just use duck duck go to search 'Rapidgator/nitroflare java tutorial' The best thing to do is install Jdownloader2 and let the downloads play in the background. If you have to buy a premium account use link snappy

If you don't want to pirate you can try edx free courses or 'free CS degree' list made online

Just get Sony Vegas or Adobe Premier Pro. I used Sony Vegas with almost no experience back in the day and it worked for me.

Button "Poetry" kept getting aggressively recommended to me in ads on Facebook, so I decided to check it out, and I have come to the conclusion that it is the most vapid psuedo-intellectual bourgeois spectacle I have ever seen (pic related)

Libs eat that shit up when the poems aren't even well-written because it tells them what they want to hear. Sure, you can like what a "poem" is talking about, but that doesn't make it a good "poem", and the stuff they talk about is basic bitch lib shit anyway like "a cashier looked at me funny once at the grocery store, it was probably because I'm LGBT". Or stuff about muh depression. Newsflash; we're all depressed, honey. It's hard not to be in a society this alienating.

If this is what's considered good modern poetry, can poetry be saved, or is it dead and buried? All of the examples of modern "poetry" that I can think of are similarly vapid, but I am very okay with being proven wrong.

Rap is going through the same exact evolution that rock did in previous generations: it's gone from a grassroots, anti-establishment genre of largely proletarian origin to one that has been co-opted and thoroughly assimilated by the mainstream music industry, and as such is becoming stagnant and losing its potential for further creative development.
