Thanks. Its not perfect but its something I think I did good on for a first timer. The photoshop design on the graphics was mine and my wife who is better with vectors and cleanup work polished it to remove any blemishes and touchup any inconsistent spacing or measurement errors. She's really structure oriented and I'm really into design. Came together well even if I can't stop looking at the few things I know I can improve upon.
High quality stuff. Very polished and durable vinyls. He quotes based on what you send him. Not only did he do these but my wife was making amiibo NFC cards and we also got sheets of those graphics printed as well to sandwhich NFC chips between blank playing cards to make a custom rolodex of amiibo that took up less space than all of the figures we owned.
Everything he printed was already sticker backed too and very good with the adhesives. Dude's work is great and I highly recommend anyone here with questions on getting any gaming graphics printed to email him sometime. He even double checked on me since I had a top plate instead of a stick I needed graphics for in my arcade. He wanted to be certain it was really what I wanted or if I hadn't laid out my holes yet for a stick on the graphic I sent him.
So...yeah. You want graphics for a stick, arcade cabinet, card game, or whatever you've designed or need to design graphics for hit him up. He's helpful and does great print service stuff fast and prices based on what you sent him.
GamingThreadWhich game was most constrained by console power, in your opinion, and why?

Red TextMod Edit: This post has been reverted to its original warned content.
Sure, a super powerful console on-par with the 360 and PS3 and ahead of the curve because of an innovative idea that would have sold regardless (given that most people bought the Wii console for wii sports alone) would have been a terrible idea.
Slap on a DVD player at the least, and it would have done well.
You’re elitist prick attitude is shitty and unwanted. Get bent.
Sorry mods, one insult for another.
ReasonUser warned: creating an intentionally misleading and inflammatory thread title
Red Text[Mod Edit: Renamed the thread to prevent others from being mislead. Don't troll by using intentionally misleading thread titles]
Has anyone read this?
Despite the terrible title and that fact that Bill Clinton (!) is listed as a co-writer, this is getting pretty good reviews. Seems like a no-brainer for a writer like Patterson to team with an actual insider to create an authentic experience.
I combed through the last few "What are you reading" threads and couldn't find any mentions so I thought i'd ask the question directly.
ReasonUser banned (duration pending): advocating a game banned from ResetEra
Red TextMod edit: removed a picture of a game on Resetera's ban list
A rather short but fullfilling experience.
As entrepeneur of an erotic start-up it is your job to expand your company, satisfy the desires of a diverse field of customers and earn capitalist valuepapers.
You do so by managing the time, health and addictions of your employees in the style of a "clicker" game, these mechanical depictions of an employees hard work are served on an asthetic inspired by classical japanese drawings displayed in beautiful contrast to the Lars von Trier inspired contents found within.
It finds itself as a criticism both, our modern capitalist values - Entfremdung as taken straight out of Karl Marx's theory of alienation - and the commercialization of our human desires.
I'm very thankful for having had the chance to play this bold statement of a game, it gave me a new and deep appreciation for Lana Rain's webcam artistry and her unique struggles.

EtcetEraThreadDefensiveness Over "Generalizations" When Discussing Systemic Issues (AKA #NotAllMen)
ReasonUser Warned: Off-Site Baggage
Red Text[Mod Edit: Off-site link removed]
I just think other should know if they are dealing with a sexism lite person.
But here is your quote:
"Not a change. GG always was kind of a mixed bag, with a lot of well intentioned and a lot of ill intentioned individuals.
The perception that it's strictly bad was manufactured by old gaf and portions of the gaming press."
Imo someone who calls GG a mixed bag and "manufactured by old gaf and portions of the gaming press." while defending white cis males from generalizations is just SUUUPER transparent.
ReasonMember has been banned (24h): inapproptiate GIF. Please do not post it anymore despite your strong feelings for it.
Red TextMOD Edit: Removed inappropriate and off-topic gif.
Remember my post from the original thread on the peace talk announcement? I posted this, and it was misinterpreted to just be treating a serious event sarcastically and disrespectfully and was subsequently removed with warning given:
On the contrary, what I meant it to convey was a combination of both "it's a trap" with something that on the surface looks off the charts pleasing.
Looks like this feeling was dead on. Still one of my favorite gifs of alltime.

GamingThreadLay It Omni: What REALLY Stops Women From Going Pro in Esports?
ReasonUser banned (duration pending) - sexism
Red TextMod Edit: Please do not edit posts to remove the context for warnings or bans.
The average woman's reaction time is approx 100millisecond slower than the average male's (the gap is smaller among young healthy athletes in their prime but still of consequential value). In today's social climate it might not be politically correct to point this out - but the fact is that the way some competitive videogames work, people with faster reaction times will have a sizeable advantage. (esp in certain e-sports like counter-strike where reaction time to peeking corners/peeking players is to the millisecond)
During the CGS, (the championship gaming series, no longer around), there was a reaction time test machine and the e-sports pros who tested on it almost always showed that the pro guy gamers would have about 80-150ms faster reaction time than the pro girl gamers. is one of the easier ones to read on this topic, as most of them use scientific jargon which isn't meant for public consumption.
It would be great if everyone, no matter their sex, was 100% equal on biological footing so we didn't have to deal with these discrepancies - one possible solution would be a setup similar to the NBA/WNBA, have a 'everyone' league and a 'women' league (though money talks and it will only happen if some suit sees profit in it)
GamingThreadValve requesting sexual content be censored in Steam games, or they'll be removed
ReasonUser Banned (1 Month): Posting outright pornography, even behind spoiler tags, is never appropriate
Red TextMod Edit: NSFW removed
But even if it's censored by pixels like Japanese porn, it's still incredibly graphic in some of these games
I'm assuming it looks like this during play?
NSFW (I blurred it myself)
Yet the dev is on twitter saying
I wouldn't really call that tame even if it is censored. "Tame" is the likes of The Witcher 3 supercut video I posted above.

The playstyle is completely different to other BGs, as there is less emphasis on actually killing enemy players (this allows them to respawn and then fly wherever they want) and more on slowing them down. The BG is RNG in that the nodes spawn randomly and you can sometimes have a bad streak of inconvenient spawns.

ReasonUser Warned: Console war post / Inappropriate offensive content.
Red TextMod edit: removed a nsfw meme.
There seems to still be quite a lot of people defending a very unconsumer friendly decision....
If I look at roblox and Minecraft those games have no issues between pc..android and iOS.. and kids love to play them
As these kids get old they start to ask why they can't play with their friends on xxx third party title
And these kids will be the target market for gaming companies
I think things will change..but as long as sony is number one I don't think it will.

EtcetEraThreadUniversity of Florida accused of racism after celebrating black graduates are physically removed
ReasonUser Banned (1 Week): Doxxing.
Red TextMOD EDIT: Removed personal information.
The man physically grabbing and pushing the excited graduates seems to be an employee or lecturer/faculty member of UoF but every part of the video and his behavior I find troubling.
Regardless of his given direction or the degree of supervisory authority he was lent by the college the sheer physicality here seems wrong, excessive, and completely inappropriate. The popular hot take by people posting up defenses for this man is online (ya know the type... slightly racist bottom dwellers who love harsh law and order more than anything in the world when it involves POC) is that these ceremonies are incredibly long affairs and he was just doing his job. The speculation abounds but there are concrete accumulating details that would lead one to believe that YES this was a racist moment.
Simply observed in the videos the students were committing no crimes, they were reasonably excited for the day and their accomplishment, and none of them really seem to be dragging the proceedings down at all. This whole thing seems messed up and extremely unfortunate but people rushing to victimize/defend the official online and admonish the graduates makes it even grosser.
All I have to say if I was in the audience and saw my kid being touched or manhandled like this I'd have very, very stern words for both the school and the faculty member. SMH
