Why does a man who built a device to escape reality need hundreds of millions of dollars?

I'm just asking questions.
 
2017-04-20 09:44:09 AM  
Why would anyone give money to someone who claims to be a billionaire?

Luckey, who is worth an estimated $730 million

I bet he still doesn't get laid.

I know he isn't associated with the Rift directly anymore, but even still, his actions have tainted the brand irreparably in my eyes.

/was already leaning towards a Vive, its got Steam in its corner and that's a behemoth in that industry

I assume he abhors the concept of sharing his money with a woman, so he starts each date with an NDA and pre-nup.

He's 24 and throwing his money down the toilet for Trump. With any luck he'll be broke by 30.

Heh.

I respect the guy for his work, I'm a programmer and I of course never achieved what he did. But he wears his farked up politics on his sleeve and he looks like a douche so I win.

He was two when the game first came out. He either played the shiatty PS1 port or was a bandwagon person who claims to like old video games because they're cool right now.

It's impressive that this bullshiat lost him his job and potentially his fortunes as the moneyfaucet got turned off along with making his name poison in the industry, yet he's still a genuine True Believer and is hitching his wagon to this nonsense.

That's a good point.

You ever notice that while Chrono Trigger is a great game, the biggest douchebags in the world are inspired by it?

Every time I play a game made by some developer "Inspired by Chrono Trigger", it is invariably a crap, unplayable game. By far the worst and most infamous game "inspired" by CT is Daikatana.*

It's too bad, because I remember watching Vinesauce wax one day about playing ChronoTrigger as a teen kept him from "Turning into a Guido" and "Made him look at the world more deeply". It's too bad this guy learned nothing from this game.

*FWIW--The only game "inspired" by Chrono Trigger that actually got it right still remains Radiant Historia.

I always assume people are filming me. That's why I take showers and use the bathroom fully dressed.

On an unrelated matter, people keep avoiding me. Probably so they can film me.

That's what I was coming to post.  This, if anything, proves that the rich can afford higher taxes.  Because if you have the money to give $100,000 to a billionaire so he can have a party, you can afford higher farking taxes.

Vinny. Love 'em all, but Vinny's thoughts on CT were nice.

But when thinking about my own experience with CT, I'm kinda stunned at the behavior of this Shiatposter, I bet he didn't finish the Robo/Lucca "Green Dream" sidequest--Which is the inherent problem with Chrono Trigger--Some of the best, most moving parts of the game are wholly skippable.

FortyHams: I really liked Chrono Cross.


Except for that final boss fight. Although all those spheres and music prepared me for the ugliness of Drakengard. And the fact that the game had too many characters. Ended up finishing the game with an Alien, a Poodle creature, and that weird girl in the opening scene whose name escapes me because it's been over 15 years since I played that thing.

So you can't see the pair of hands wagging the cat's paws like that.  Unless you believe that's a real shiatposting cat.

Yeah, it was lousy with alternative endings and if you took this path at this point you have access to these 30 characters and not those 30.

Still played it like 4 times.

Me too. The soundtrack is the one place where CC shines over CT.
(Although I personally enjoy the soundtrack of Radiant Historia far more than either)

FortyHams: Yeah, it was lousy with alternative endings and if you took this path at this point you have access to these 30 characters and not those 30.Still played it like 4 times.


Speaking of Radiant Historia, at least that game allows you to return to those "singular points". It always bugged me in CC how you couldn't re-write or reverse a lot of those arbitrary "permanent decisions" that supposedly can exist in a time-traveling game.
