I spent the better part of an hour going through our PAX East pictures. I rounded up the cosplay pictures, grouped them, gave them titles, tagged them, and put a funny caption on each. Then I created a slideshow and discovered that Flickr doesn’t display any of that. It just shows pictures. At a fixed rate, moving from one image to the next whether the viewer is done or not.
There is no way to share or embed these pictures in a way that preserves the captions. I can’t even point you to a link off-site that will accomplish this. And I’m not going back into that clunky interface so I can copy & paste all my captions here.
Now I remember why I don’t use Flickr. It’s a pain to share photos (it requires at least four clicks to get the URL for a picture to share, so alt-tabbing back and forth can get to be very tedious.) Any site dedicated to sharing photos ought to be at least able to share photos as easily as YouTube share videos.
Juvenile and Proud
Yes, this game is loud, crude, childish, and stupid. But it it knows what it wants to be and nails it. And that's admirable.
If Star Wars Was Made in 2006?
Imagine if the original Star Wars hadn't appeared in the 1970's, but instead was pitched to studios in 2006. How would that turn out?
A Lack of Vision and Leadership
People fault EA for being greedy, but their real sin is just how terrible they are at it.
Spec Ops: The Line
A videogame that judges its audience, criticizes its genre, and hates its premise. How did this thing get made?
The Dumbest Cutscene
This is it. This is the dumbest cutscene ever created for a AAA game. It's so bad it's simultaneously hilarious and painful. This is "The Room" of video game cutscenes.
