    Also, SpeedTree is dope because it uses fractal math to generate beautiful foliage and saves you from the mind-numbingingly boring task of making trees. It gives you an alarming degree of control over...

  • PurpleOddity posted a message in the forum topic How do they make all this JUNK that is in games?. on the General Discussion board

    The primary studio will usually only work on set piece art, while most of the simple work is done elsewhere. There are a bunch of royalty-free content packs out there, but most major studios will outs...

  • PurpleOddity posted a message in the forum topic Take-Two has now declared all modding for any GTA game illegal.. on the Grand Theft Auto V board

    'Illegal' is kind of a strong word for something that is at most a civil matter. You could theoretically be sued for modding a game, but it would be a huge waste of time and money--and good-will for t...

    I'm afraid the game does make good on the Sin = Jecht thing. You are going to hate how much sense it makes.

    @zombiepie: I consider myself to be a prominent Blitzball expert and I have no idea how you managed that. You were supremely lucky. There's sort of a hidden 'crit' system, where even if the stats ough...

    Yeaaaahh, finally FFX gets its due from Zombiepie. The narrative picks up after Luca, and I'm pretty sure you'll see that Tidus is largely intended to be portrayed as a moron at the outset.

    Great podcast this week. But Rorie, man, I really wish he'd be a more considered and concise speaker. Often he's hard to listen to and makes ill-considered points that slow the conversation way down. ...

  • PurpleOddity posted a message in the forum topic Bungie's garbage marketing strategy. on the Destiny 2 board

    Publishers tend to dictate the marketing for the game, not developers. All Activision cares about is CASH MONEY, and thus Bungie's outward persona does not necessarily reflect the will of the devs. Ju...

    Final Fantasy X is still probably my favourite game. I'm used to people shitting all over it, but MAN this thread is harsh. I love the sphere grid, and Blitzball, and I even think the voice acting is ...

  • PurpleOddity posted a message on the post The Giant Beastcast - Episode 93.

    Vinny's attitude toward BotW is very frustrating. It is, of course, totally fine to disagree regarding the game's quality. That said, he hasn't played the game, and at feels as if he's questioning the...

    Giant Bomb is just like real life when you think about it, people come and go but the memories are forever. Drew is a real American hero!

    This might be my favourite Giant Bomb video of all time. Dan and Vinny have this teenage kid/cool dad dynamic going on that's really working for me.

    Why do people immediately think 'ghost' whenever their senses are unreliable? Hallucinations are common, are not just visual, and anxiety doesn't help matters.
