Forum Games / The GS Nomic
« on: June 02, 2014, 01:35:43 pm »
Welcome to the Gaming Steve Nomic! A nomic (from the Greek for "law") is a special kind of game, which is created by being played. In other words, we make up the rules as we go. We begin with a bare-bones constitution, which I've set out below. The constitution is the sum of all rules, and any "move" is legal as long as it operates within the current rules. Part of the fun is trying to exploit loopholes. Everyone is welcome to play, and it's hella fun. Without further ado...

NOTE - There is nothing sacred in this game. Every aspect of it can be changed.



THE GAMING STEVE NOMIC CONSTITUTION

1. Every member of the Gaming Steve Forum (heretofore the GSF) is a Potential Player of the Gaming Steve Nomic. (heretofore the GSN). Every Potential Player who participates in the GSN at any point then becomes a Player.

2. All Players must always abide by all the Rules then in effect, in the form in which they are then in effect. A Rule is defined as any of the points listed in the Constitution. Primary Rules are listed as numbers, Amendments as alphabetic characters.

3. At any point, any Player may introduce a Rule-Change, which will then either be Passed or Defeated. A Rule-Change is any of the following: the Enactment, Repeal, or Amendment of a rule.
          a. An Enactment is the creation of a new rule, numbered subsequent to the highest numbered rule.
          b. A Repeal is the destruction of a current Rule. The Rule will be removed from the Constitution and all subsequent rules will change their numbering appropriately.
          c. An Amendment is a change to a current Rule, and upon passing, the then-current Rule will change to reflect the new amendment.
          d. All potential Rule-Changes are referred to as Motions and must be proposed in the following format, in bold italic type. "I make a Motion to..." Additionally, Motions must end with "For the purposes of voting, this motion shall be referred to as [username]'s motion to...", followed by a summary of the motion's actions, with "[username]" replaced by the Motion-Maker's username. Note that any Motion not proposed in this exact format is invalid.

4. The Passing or Failure of a Motion is predicated upon the first 3 agreeing Votes of 3 unique Players. (That is to say, each Player may only Vote once on each Rule-Change.) All Votes must appear in the format, in bold italic type, "I vote yes/no on [username]'s motion to..." Note that any Vote not raised in this exact format is invalid. A successful Motion becomes a Rule-Change and immediately affects the Constitution, even if it has not yet been added to this post.
           a. A Motion is Defeated if two Players Vote no on it. A Defeated Motion may not be proposed again, unto perpetuity, though an amended version may be proposed.
           b. Introducing a Motion automatically counts as a Vote for that motion by the Player introducing it.

5. The first Player to 100 Flargles Wins.
          a. In the event a Winner arises, the game continues, and only ends on the emergence of a Victor.
          b. The winner will have their GSF nickname changed to "Danny Stinkfist" through abuse of moderator powers.
          c. Flargles are freely tradeable between Players.  One Player may gift Flargles to another by posting "I transfer [amount] flargles to [username]" in bold italic type, wherein [amount] is replaced by the number of Flargles being traded and [username] is the username of the Player receiving the Flargles.  This Transaction occurs instantaneously upon posting.  All Players begin with 10 Flargles, and at the time of writing, 4/6/2014, 00.53 GMT, all current Players have 10 Flargles.

6. All Rules save Rule 6 may not be retroactive, that is to say they only apply to posts, excepting the Constitution, which follow the introduction of the rule chronologically.

7. Mods cannot use their powers to interfere in any way with normal gameplay. This includes editing or deleting others' posts.

8. Players cannot edit their posts.
          a. Except Tesla with this post.

9. Krakow Sam cannot use articles or pronouns in anything he says, and must end every sentence with an exclamation point. This does not include policy.

10. Regardless of any other conditions, the GSN may not be won by anyone until 00:00 GMT on June 5th 2014.

11. Every 96 hours, an election is held for a Prime Minister. Each Player is allowed one vote in this election. This Voting Period lasts 24 hours, the last of the then Prime Minister's Term. The first Voting Period takes place on the 24 hours following enactment of this Rule. The Prime Minister is allowed to veto one Passed Motion during their 96-hour Term.

So there have been rumours of a new Civilization game being announced at PAX today, and there was recently this gaf leak. Basically Civilization 5 on alien worlds? Like Alpha Centauri 2? (Note - can't actually be called that. EA owns the IP.) Get hype!

PC Games / Spelunky
« on: September 07, 2013, 05:54:29 am »
Website.

So Spelunky HD is out on Steam and I've been playing it like crazy. It's really fun especially when you start getting good at it.

The new version has an interesting feature - a "Daily Challenge." Every day, a level is generated that all players can play once, allowing people to compare their skills without any element of randomness. There are also personal, friend, and global leaderboards.

And yes, I'm making this thread so more people might buy the game and play those challenges. Currently it's only me and Celdur.

(If you want to see it, there are a billion and one let's plays for the challenges. Or you could just pirate it. I did at first but it just made me compelled to buy the game to access the online component.)

EDIT - Oh, if you liked the Binding of Isaac, you'll probably like this too.

TV / Utopia
« on: January 28, 2013, 03:23:15 pm »
It's so weird that this show isn't more popular. It's a channel 4 miniseries. 2 episodes in now.

It's best to go in not knowing much, but it follows fans of a graphic novel which contains encoded government secrets, on the run from a mysterious group of killers ruthlessly hunting them down. It sounds a little clichéd but it's executed very well.

The first thing you'll notice is the production value. Great soundtrack, acting, and a really interesting colour palette - green and yellow.

Give it a try! I think there's only gonna be 6 episodes, but there's lot of intrigue, lots of cliffhangers, and lots of death. :P

Everything Else / Patrick's Day

It's almost St. Patrick's day, the day that was originally intended to celebrate my country, but has become deeply offensive to us! Woo!

As we say in Ireland; "is maith liom a chur mo bhod i meilteoirí feola!"

PC Games / The Binding of Isaac
« on: November 27, 2011, 10:39:39 am »
Wiki / Steam

Anyone else finding this game incredibly addictive? It's a procedurally generated top down dungeon crawler dealy, with a ton of unique items and permadeath. It's also very strange, with lots of Christian references (if the name didn't tell you that) and horrifying monsters.

I'm getting annoyed.
