who fucking cares who's talking in a video
this is the new reality of the unconsole. our old ways and words have no meaning anymore. children no longer hug their mothers. there is only kickstarter.

It's always the little details that make a Superb Joe post.

synthesiser music fills the air, it sounds like john carpenter fucked kate bush and the baby came out retarded, a swirling mass of people, all wearing identical sunglasses, dart hither and thither in the great marble reception. nobody speaks, and nobody listens. they are all deaf to each percussive step on the polished floor, and the bad synthesiser music that permeates the aether.

we are not sure what our purpose is, we copy one another, a great herd, and give off the appearance of life. but we are dead. we have backed the ouya, we have embraced its iconoclastic principles and torn down the temples of our old gods. we look now to uhrman and the masters of the universe. surely, the games will come.

Ugh.  Just watched that SXSW vid.  Wow, completely off putting.

In response to concerns about extracting the OUYA ROM and flashing it on a phone or other device:

Quote from: @22:35
OUYA's a controlled environment.
Every piece of content that you will buy and download needs to have -- you, know -- is behind the server; Needs server authentication.
We're doing other tools.

We will be as secure as other Android devices (which probably doesn't make everybody that thrilled), but I think we will be more, as well.

Translation: Pay To Win + Always Online DRM == OUYA!

Quote
But it's the ecosystem, it's the developers that are coming.  We've got Exclusive Content that you're not going to find anywhere else.
[cites two games that will be coming to OUYA, not necessarily exclusives.]

I mean, there's some real excitement and momentum behind this open game console.  That is the momentum that we're just trying to keep leveraging and delivering on.

Ah, so you're "leveraging" the hype for all its worth then?  Great plan.  What happens when you ride a wave of momentum and excitement is that the wave crests eventually...

So, it's open, but it's a controlled ecosystem?  Hmmm, isn't it impossible to "control" that which is "open"?  Sounds like it's just an App store with always on DRM to me.   

I just want to put a $0.99 price tag on my game and just distribute & sell that, but I can't on OUYA.  I have to devalue the game with a free demo that I'll have to waste time (money) creating.  How is this giving me the freedom to choose how I sell my game?  Sounds like taking away some choices to me.

Quote from: earlier
[Holds up a dev unit]
There is NOTHING special about this board!

Yep, It's just an app store plus DRM non-features, minus the prime benefit of an app store since OUYA won't host my "full version" data, I have to do that myself... Why am I giving them a cut then?  Advertising?  The opportunity to be in their app store?  I mean, if it's so "open" and "hackable" then folks can just sideload my games from my website then, and I get 100% of the profit -- OR, add another App Store to the OUYA that'll host my full version files for me -- you know, like ALL the other ones.

I really hope I'm just misunderstanding the ramblings of a crazy woman.

O-Day, the day that changed our lives forever. There I was, a college-aged male doing college-aged things - wiping the sweat off my balls with my hands, sniffing it, and then describing the aroma to facebook, twitter, or some combination of the two - then it happened. It was so gentle at first as to be imperceptible. Then the gentle rolling of the Earth made me feel the familiar safety of childhood, the embrace of my lost mother, and the torrent of emotions intertwined with this. It grew more violent. Soon children were crying, buildings shaking, shards of glass, dangerous and beautiful, raining to the ground with a mellifluous tinkling chatter. What once I thought were cobbles breathed with the spark of life, Jelly Bean I'm told reliably, and began to avail themselves of the air. The small rounded cubes on which I'd trodden for all of my ambulatory life were in revolt, they were no longer to be dismissed underfoot, the world is changing, now they crowd me into a corner and demand I pay 99 cents for Angry Birds. Now I am the impassive stone beneath the feet of the mechanical overclass, now I serve only the soles of the soldiers marching with designs on ousting our old values. This world is upside down. I no longer fear death. Pressed down into a great human lattice, I hear wails, lamentations, odes to a life long lost. But amongst them I hear supportive whisperings, those who had wanted this, who had hoped for this day. "Keep an eye on your inbox! The first @playouya shipment is en route and a steady flow will ship for the next several weeks," they intone. Perhaps I am already dead inside, and await a second, more permanent death.

Through happenstance and twin stick shooters, I am awakened. I am he of such great power as to take the sting out of death himself! Press A to Respawn! The other A, in the different position! My skin is vacuum metalised. My chromed lips crack and peel. Feed me, telecommunications. A double helix of piss, hose me down, the goose flies at midnight. Who are we to stand in the way of a shining and vibrant future? Zombie themed games for all. One where you jump. One where you shoot. One where you strike out in a wagon for the promised land. This is our world now. This is who we are. The blood boils, and builds, and such feeling does not dissipate into the tender mist of eve! The irascible avians! How comes it that they are flung this way and that, squawking and chirping with misgivings towards us and our kin, and we sit, motionless, in front of our Ouyas? This cuboid monolith staking claim to our lives and standing so boldly in representation of our most base desires! Fuck, I cry to the heavens, fuck! Everlasting fuck! I've had sex.

"Come on out from behind that in app purchase, Adolf, I know you're in there!" I rasp from the back of my throat. Every vein in my face and neck leaping out as if poised at the starting line of a race that may never be. He fires wildly, like a blind man seeking sight at the edge of reason. He cries out at us "pigs", how droll. He's just given me the green light. For only 99 cents I get an extra one of the ones that lays an egg in mid air when you press the button. You're mine now, Hitler-san.
