The RonCo infomercials always made me want every single stupid RonCo product even though I was like 6 and why the fuck would I need a chicken rotisserie?

I should add this was my first job out of college, so I didn't know about any of the many, many red flags I should have watched out for. They had some pretty peculiar attitudes towards a lot of things, including the entire interview process in which they offered me the job, sight unseen, without an on-site interview, and I had to pay my own moving expenses all the way across the country.

Oh, also even though I was fresh out of college they hired me as a "senior software engineer" but the pay wasn't all that great for the industry or area (but I didn't know any better).

This whole company is amazing.

Or at least, 15 years ago when I (briefly, for about three months) worked there, they were a games studio that did government subcontracting to pay the bills. Only because of their setup, they structured it like: you worked 40 hours per week on subcontract work, and then you were expected to work another 40 hours per week, at home, on your personal equipment, on game stuff. (I "still haven't gotten my setup going" the whole time, and they kept on admonishing me, saying that I wouldn't get the AMAZING stock options if I didn't. They still haven't ever actually been listed on the SEC.)

They hired me as an engine programmer, and insisted that their next-generation graphics engine was "almost done" and just needed a little work to be finished, but the previous programmer left unexpectedly. So, during a couple of hours of downtime during the subcontracting work (which mostly involved writing a little bit of glue code to go between established, expensive pieces of software and claiming them both as our own) I finally looked at the purported engine. The dude had just imported the entirety of the Microsoft DirectX SDK examples into their source control and pointed people at a couple of key trivial-but-neat-looking samples and said "Look at what the engine can do!"

The other fun thing was they kept on bringing in investors to show off their games in development (which were mostly along the lines of combat-training stuff, the idea being that they could always parlay their military expertise into gaming and vice-versa). One of these games was an attempt at making an RTS, only the "game" was just a bunch of scripted events built in an existing third-party engine that was basically a 3D version of PowerPoint (you could trigger animations and sound and some very simple interactivity but you certainly couldn't build a real game out of it), and most of the assets were, let's say "borrowed" from commercial games (mostly Half-Life). All that was built was a single scene where you could click the mouse and make the dudes walk forward, throw a grenade, and have the grenade explode.

Whenever investors came by, they showed off this demo, and talked about how amazing the game engine is and how great the graphics are.

At one point (when I was getting ready to quit) I asked one of the highers-up, "So why do we demonstrate this game based on our engine when it's just [other engine]?" and the answer was "No, we're showing off the concept and assets."

I asked another higher-up, "SO why do we demonstrate this game based on the concept and assets when the concept is just Command and Conquer and the assets aren't ours?" and the answer was "No, we're showing off the game engine."

When I put in my two weeks' notice they convinced me to stay "until the project you've been working on ships, in case we need your support." I agreed. Then as soon as the project was delivered and paid for, without any warning they said "Okay you're done" and escorted me out, never giving me a chance to even say goodbye to the couple of coworkers I liked. Oh, and that day happened to be the last day of the insurance cycle, and due to COBRA rules at the time I was ineligible to continue it, so this meant I was suddenly uninsured with a bunch of expensive preexisting conditions. HOORAY.

Anyway somehow they're still around.

Good to know, thanks! So if I preorder the vinyl version on Amazon I'll also get a download voucher?

Yeah, I liked her older self-effacing humor a lot better than her crotchety old bitch "humor." Don't forget her weird thing about calling Michelle Obama a "tranny."

It really sounded nothing like him, JHM. But I have a pretty good ear for voices (part of how my brain compensates at being total shit for faces, I guess).

Okay, buying the hell out of this when it drops.

Is it true that there's no high-quality MP3 purchase option though? Bleah. (Yes I know "high-quality MP3" is an oxymoron, get off your goddamn high horse you audiophile wanker.) I'd be most tempted to buy the vinyl version if it comes with a digital download. CDs are just installation media for ripped audio, and I don't even have an easy way of ripping anymore since I don't even have any computers with optical drives at this point.

There are people on this site who don't know who he is? I thought having watched the Recobbled Cut was a prerequisite to being here.

So weird seeing farbrausch do a demo that isn't fully-procedural.

Also, holy crap have scene party invites changed since I last watched them all religiously.

Sabrina Online? Yeah, that's by Eric Schwartz who is an incredibly annoying Amiga diehard.

Amigas were pretty ahead of their time, but other technology has moved on well past it. And yet the Amiga fandom will never die.

Also EvilHomer, isn't Homer's age canonically 35? (per the early heart attack episode)

That means I'm older than Homer. :(

The current animation is way smoother, but also way less dynamic. Once upon a time the characters showed emotion, and had so much expressiveness in their eyes and movements and so on. Now they just seem incredibly rigid.

Look especially at the grocery scene:

There used to be a really good side-by-side comparison video floating around but it seems to have disappeared from the Internet thanks to copyright lawyers. (There are others out there now but they've all been degraded to avoid the auto-copyright stuff in ways that completely ruins the comparison in the first place.)
