Good points!

I think it's a good practice for any developer to take a step back from the objectives/progression of their work, and focus on the sensation of play.

I think calling all pieces if interactive electronic entertainment "games" is a misnomer. Many of them are better described as "simulations" or "toys", since you play WITH them, and not THROUGH them.

It's interesting that you bring up this point just as the industry seems to finally be (re)embracing challenging video games like Dark Souls, Super Meat Boy, XCom (Ironman mode), and the litany of rouge-like-a-likes. Maybe your feelings reflect the inevitable fatigue with this trend?

I love how quickly the comic book nerds in the comments dashed this story to bits.

Good stuff!

Q1: I was surprised you have all sounds stacked in one project, what are the advantages to this? Isn't this costly for memory?

Q2: Could you explain how you catalog your sounds so you can find the one you need later?

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply!

I also figured you may have global audio settings/levels that you wanted to maintain through each sound effect. I use an old pro, so not much RAM :-P

Thanks again for the tips and video, gave me a lot to think about.

Finally beat GTA:V ("Ending C") and really dug the song choice for the ending credits. It really captured the feeling of the moment. The accomplishments. The pay offs. The betrayals and redemptions along the way.

If there's one thing about this game I really want to tip my hat to, it's the economy. Sounds boring, right? But it's something that SO many other games (including past GTAs) have struggled with; breaking the economy when making money is just too easy.

GTA:V solved this problem by, frankly, having you get screwed time and time again. Missions rarely pay, no matter how trust worthy the mission giver seems. The only way to get a big payout is to take the money yourself (the heists). The sense of desperation not only is conveyed in the story, but is mirrored in the game play; I took on jobs I wouldn't normally because there MIGHT be money, and there rarely was. So when you finally organize a team and do a heist, it's like a huge payday. You start buying up all of the things you thought you'd never afford, and that keeps you going.

For my musician friends out there, this looks really excellent! I'm sure the $15 price tag will be too steep for most people, but IF it does what it says it does, it'd be worth it.

It'd be great if there were a demo (light) version out there so I could try before I buy. That goes for pretty much all apps and app stores everywhere. I fell like if demo's where made standard for apps, people would be more comfortable paying more than $.99 per app.

I hate to leave a bad review, but this is not a good store. My girlfriend had to see an orthopedist after she injured herself running with the shoes these people recommended (which I had paid for, as a gift). They wouldn't allow her to return the shoes and fought her on doing an exchange when she didn't have the box they came in. I've worked in customer service before, and this is unacceptable. If a product lacks a box you can easily return them to the vendor for an exchange, or new box. You don't insult your customer, who injured themselves on a product you sold them, for not holding onto the box like a hoarder, and make them jump through hoops to simply replace their purchase. I can't speak for all Fleet Feet stores, but I'd recommend avoiding this one.

For a franchise, Primo is often better than local delis. The Turkey Diablo is one of my favorite sandwiches...anywhere! My only problem is the hours; this place tends to be closed before I'm even hungry (7:00pm).

One of those "hidden gems" you always hope to discover. My girlfriend and I tried Felicia's on Friday night, and ended up having it for Saturday and Sunday too. Tony (the owner) is friendly and passionate about the food he makes. After seeing that I was ordering rather plain choices (pepperoni, sausage, cheese, etc.), he circled a few "must-have" items on his menu. To prove he wasn't just trying to up-sell me, he gave me a sample of a single sliver of the caramelized onion from one of his suggestions, and I nearly melted: it was like candy! One more example of their dedication to great food: they make their own SODA! I have a feeling I'll be going back their many, many times to try everything they have to offer.
