Warhammer World in Nottingham had that concept down for years. I'm sure I did play something over a pint, years ago
Uuuuuhhhhh...sssssoooo, aaaabbbboooouuuut tttthhhhaaaaat.I think video game bars will be popping up in more and more places soon. I know there's a barcade in my city (or at least there used to be) which mostly focused on arcade games like driving simulators and the like, and board game bars are popping up all around the city with great success. This latest generation of young adults doesn't seem to enjoy the idea of getting hammered while watching baseball or basketball as much as the older generations, so I wouldn't be surprised if we start to see a rise in them. There's also the fact that being a nerd is cool now to help the idea along.
I speak from experience: yes....drunk D&D sounds like a nightmare.
Oh thank god, I get to cite my source:In the context of reviews at least, requiring off-site reading to understand it is kinda unnecessary. However, I have no problems with people linking to off-site articles for discussion in this thread!
Found a happy (?) news article for you:I need to stop playing gacha games. The temptation to spend even just a few bucks is hella strong
So maybe spend the microtransaction money on Super Mario Run? Or just download Pokémon Playhouse and do the minigame where you bandage cute Pokémon, it's the best one. Not that I would know anything about a Pokémon game designed for toddlers. I certainty don't have Pokémon Playhouse installed on my phone. I certainly haven't spent four hours playing it. By myself. I haven't done that.https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2019/03/nintendo-to-smartphone-game-makers-you-can-only-gouge-our-players-so-much/ said:“Nintendo is not interested in making a large amount of revenue from a single smartphone game,” a CyberAgent [gacha game developer working under Nintendo] representative told the WSJ. “If we managed the game alone, we would have made a lot more.”
When asked by the WSJ, Nintendo's Japanese arm replied with a statement that apparently confirms CyberAgent's allegation. “We discuss various things, not just limited to payments, to deliver high-quality fun to consumers,” the Nintendo rep told the WSJ.
Why did I not know this was a thing? I need this in my life!Or just download Pokémon Playhouse and do the minigame where you bandage cute Pokémon, it's the best one.
What version of Windows are you running? Off the top of me head, if you set OBS to Display Capture and just watch the video fullscreen, you can get a full-quality rip that way. But there might be an easier way, depending on your version of Windows.Also, I've been watching a lot of YouTube videos with text-to-speech voices, and I'm still looking for a way to both preview and download those voices because I want to make parody videos. Apparently there's something pre-installed on Windows?
Just to clarify; what I'm talking about is legal fair use, not YouTube "fair" use. In theory, the law trumps YouTube's copyright system. In practice...ugh.\>you need to actually violate copyright laws to get a strike on youtube
Buuuuuut if you can't afford an attorney, you're stuck in YouTube's copyright system. And I am not going there.District Judge Katherine B. Forest said:Fair use is an affirmative defense to copyright infringement. It “is a judicially created doctrine . . . first explicitly recognized in statute in the Copyright Act of 1976.” On Davis v. Gap, Inc., 246 F.3d 152, 173 (2d Cir 2001). In determining whether “the use of a work in any particular case” is fair use, courts must consider non-exhaustive factors:
(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.
17 U.S.C. § 107. No single factor is categorically determinative in this “open-ended and context-sensitive inquiry.” Blanch v. Koons, 467 F.3d 244, 251 (2d Cir. 2006).
