Yes, I'm aware I have a weird taste in music/music videos

Talking Heads- Road to Nowhere

avaiihn  ·  1569 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Everyone has one: What's that one song you want the world to hear?

I'm not necessarily expecting anyone to like these songs like I do, but here you go:

XTC- English Roundabout

Bombay Bicycle Club- Ghost

Echo & the Bunnymen- Siberia

Wolfmother- Vagabond

Bad Suns- Cardiac Arrest

Switchfoot- Dirty Second Hands

Sorry this turned into more of a collection of music than one song. Maybe someone will enjoy this.

Just noticed that trump's hair looks like it has a blur censor on it. I can't not see it now...

For sure. As someone who isn't overly creative when it comes to plot, I'm not sure I can really help you with that, but if you have questions about gameplay and stuff, I might be able to help. It seems like (from what you've said) that you are looking for a faster pace game. Are you thinking like a bullet hellish kind of thing? More puzzle based? More strategic gameplay? Or a mixture of all of them? You have a metric fuckton of options with this, and with rogue-likes booming like they are, you have a good chance of doing well for yourself if you can make at least a decent foundation for a game. If things go well and at any point you feel it's polished enough to be put out into the indie community, send it to a youtuber named Rockleesmile. He does reviews of indie games and has a good deal of experience with rogue-likes. Hope this helps :D

Slow Down My Heartbeat -- Switchfoot

Yo, it's not like it's impossible. The Binding of Issac told an extremely thought out and detailed story. I'd say the rogue-like nature of the game, slowly discovering new bits of the story over time, made the plot much more compelling. It's definitely not everyone's idea of plot though, so it might not be the kind of thing you are looking for. Other than that I can't think of any other rogue-likes I've played that had a very good story off the top of my head, so it's definitely not a common practice. At least not yet. Plot definitely helps/would help those not familiar and in love with the genre to get through the beginning (seeming) monotony and repetition that by nature rogue-likes have, so in my opinion it seems like a really good idea overall. However, if the game is focused solely on the plot then it might lack replayablility. Just a thought.

Yo. As someone who didn't really use reddit to much, some of this is a bit confusing to me. If I want to make certain text link to a certain website, I gather from this that i would to the / before the text thing. My question is, where does the link go? As in, how does it know where to link the text to? Furthermore, does imputing a link to a video automatically paste that link as the video itself in the post?

I've played melee, brawl, and 4 but only ever owned brawl. No doubt 4 I'd my favorite but since I'm primarily a PC guy I got into this game called Brawlhalla, which is not only free in Steam but also my favorite game in the genre. There are a few different mechanics and it's overall more focused on movement than smash, but it's still really easy to get into.

First off, I will say that I am for gay marriage. One of the reasons a large number of people are against the ruling is because of the way it was decided. I, too, find the process through which the ruling was made in-just. The job of the Supreme Court is to judge a law and see if, by the Constitution, a law is legal. Anything outside the Constitution is decided by the states. Many states were already making gay marriage legal. Since there is no law in the Constitution regarding gay marriage, the law was supposed to be made individually by each state. The Supreme Court overrode the States' right to chose whether gay marriage is legal. That is one big concern. Furthermore, since the decision was made by the supreme court, which is picked by the President, many felt that the decision was biased and not properly though through. Again, let me state that I believe that gays should have the right to marry. However, the method with which the ruling was made was objectively unconstitutional. TL;DR States are supposed to have the right to decide on gay marriage, meaning that the method used for the ruling was unconstitutional.

Same. Right now rogue-likes are big but my personally favorites are games like jazzpunk.

Same question on the upvote bit.

I'd be interested in recording drums for this but I don't have any real recording devices (feel like recording on my phone would be a bit to lo-fi). Any recommended equipment?

I've been playing drums for about 6 years now. My brother and I play in the band of our high school's show choir together and it is a ton of fun.

I have one of those. I mostly play drums but whenever we do a acoustic kinda set, just hop on the cajon for a different feel.
