Topic: Kongregate / Will Kongregate follow the European standard

By that definition we should just fully allow all vices such as addictive drugs and so forth as well.

But then the issue simply becomes where to draw the line, clearly in this instance the EU has drawn the line elsewhere than you did bobby and crow.

They’re not saying you can’t have those games anymore btw, you simply can’t state that they’re free anymore, which in all honesty, they’re mostly not and they most certainly try to pull out all the stops to get you to buy. ^^

As someone who plays a lot of mobile games with in-app purchase options, I never feel pressured to spend. The vast majority of these games don’t pressure you into spending, and the ones that do tend not to survive for very long.

I actually do think drugs should be legal, but that is another story.

Point is that almost all free apps with in game purchases give you a solid free game with completely optional purchases that anyone with self control would never be tempted to use. You can’t police self control, that is just something people have to learn on their own.

BECAUSE ASEXUALITY ISN’T NORMAL, RIGHT? HE MUST HAVE A DISEASE OR SOMETHING!

It exists, it just is not normal.

You realize everyone is on the asexual spectrum, right? Some peeps just have no sexual attraction to others, some peeps just really want to [expletive] everyone they meet. I’ve just never really cared about physical intimacy with other peeps and after having done so, kind of solidified how I’ve just always been.

Sorry, haven’t really given up since I do still like peeps. I just don’t want to do anything more than kissing or hugging them.

You will. Maybe you are just a late bloomer.

19 is still young enough for it to be plausible, but if you still feel this way in 5 years, I would be concerned.

Topic: Kongregate / Will Kongregate follow the European standard

I hope not. It does not take a genius to figure out that just about all free game apps have in-game purchase options that can be set to be impossible to use by just a small setting change on your device, or simply never linking a credit/debit card.

I want it to stay as is. Tag it by what the entry fee is. If it’s free to download, it’s a free game. If it costs $1.99 to download, it’s not a free game.

At some point you just have to let stupid people be stupid. If someone puts $8000 into Candy Crush and then complains later that Candy Crush ruined his life and he ended up getting evicted because he couldn’t afford the rent, then who’s fault is that?

Don’t even get me started on this rubbish remark of unbearable uselessness. Ignore what bobby said just now. These things are happening specifically to you for specific reasons. This is not just some random internet happenstance. And you have more options other than “mute”. Other options just require more effort.

Going to assume sarcasm.

This is not the reason that this is happening to you. It is happening to you because you are on the internet.

All you can do is mute. You literally have zero other options.

(I don’t actually care about the badges, but if they want to be consistent, it should not have badges)

On that basis Bullseye (Interstellar Marines) should have its badges revoked because the developer isn’t willing to update the unity requirement of the game so later computers using more up to date unity cannot play it.

I can’t play that game either, it should have it’s badges revoked too.

Inferno Legends runs so badly that it makes Wartune look fully optimized.

Topic: Kongregate / Idle game badges

That article is one persons opinion. He is not wrong, but he is also not objectively right.

All games serves a purpose. Playing games that you are not too fond of simply because they have badges is a way of challenging yourself. You take pride in earning many or all of the badges and it makes you feel good. Given enough time, however, the passion for that leaves you, just like anything else in life. I use to be a badge hunter, now I have no interest in badges. Do I regret the time “wasted” on it? Of course not. It was merely one of the thousands of phases I will go through in my life.

I currently play a lot of mobile games. Many of those games could be broken down like this: " I must earn this upgrade, too earn that upgrade, to earn the one after it……oh I am maxed out, time to play a new game". One of the games I play most is Clash of Clans. Every time I raid, or attack in a war to get resources, I am just upgrading more things so that I can upgrade them later. You are literally always upgrading because the cap takes a very long time to hit.

Thing is though, is that you are gonna have a hard time putting hundreds, if not thousands of hours into a game if you do not genuinely enjoy it. I play games that are fun, and I do not play games that are not fun. I would like to assume that most people follow that basic idea.

If a game has no upgrade system and is entirely skill based, then sure, that type of game appeals to some, and that is alright as well. I am not one of these people, as I am not very competitive, but to each their own.

Idle games should get badges if they meet rating and api requirements.

Quite a few do meet those reqs.

Topic: Off-topic / Autism doesn´t exist.

Completely bogus. Autism is brain related, and one of the most significant things that will affect your brain is if your birth had no complications, and what the mother did while pregnant.

It is not the same thing as being bad socially. Social interaction is a learned trait, but you don’t learn autism, you kinda just inherit it.

I was born with a bone missing in my left foot, so I walk somewhat crookedly unless I compensate for it. Some people are just born imperfect(relatively speaking). Autism is a real thing, and I would bet that the primary cause of it could be linked to negligent mothers.

Mommy issues ?

The cause and cure to autism have not been found because autism doesn’t exist. The diagnosis also fails to define a neurological disorder. Furthermore it does nothing to explain the way a mind works. Why bother treating Temple Grandin for autism, when a brain scan shows her too-small cerebellum is probably the real cause of her occasionally dysfunctional behavior? People with obvious impairments may indeed be commonly diagnosed with “autism” but it doesn’t change the fact that autism serves no scientific purpose. In fact, Temple Grandid’s actual disorder is Cerebellar Hypoplasia.

This explains it tho :http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/cerebellar_hypoplasia/cerebellar_hypoplasia.htm

Cerebellar hypoplasia is a neurological condition in which the cerebellum is smaller than usual or not completely developed. Cerebellar hypoplasia is a feature of a number of congenital (present at birth) malformation syndromes, such as Walker-Warburg syndrome (a form of muscular dystrophy. It is also associated with several inherited metabolic disorders, such as Williams syndrome, and some of the neurodegenerative disorders that begin in early childhood, such as ataxia telangiectasia. In an infant or young child, symptoms of a disorder that features cerebellar hypoplasia might include floppy muscle tone, developmental or speech delay, problems with walking and balance, seizures, intellectual disability, and involuntary side to side movements of the eyes. In an older child, symptoms might include headache, dizzy spells, clumsiness, and hearing impairment.

I can’t prove you exist, so therefore you don’t exist.

Also, you are lost.

Topic: Kongregate / Chat Rooms that will be Closing on Nov. 3

Originally posted by wattro:

hey, sorry to bring up an old topic… but my room has been inundated with noobs at a higher rate since you closed these other rooms. i get it, it makes sense, chat is moving towards game centric rather than general room centric (which really seems like social centric gaming is losing the battle on this site to gaming centric social, but that’s a completely different topic).

my point is that you should filter all noobs into noob specific rooms and let them navigate themselves out of the noob rooms. if one wanted to restrict level 1’s for the purpose of filtering out like 60% of trolling, then you could put a level 2 requirement on it. this might even have the effect of showing noobs how annoying it is to be with noobs and they can cut their teeth in junior rooms before jumping into rooms with established regularships. plus kong could select some users who specialize in dealing with noobs to moderate these rooms. think of it like classrooms, if you will.

/shooting from the hip; haven’t really thought this out, but i imagine it will receive the usual distribution of replies. :p

Sure, it’s a great idea that an open minded company could theoretically consider, but this is kongregate where everyone is treated equally, even when they shouldn’t be.

I don’t have any problem with restrictions. Never have, never will. Someone who has been on kong for 10 minutes should not be treated the same as someone who has been here for 5 years.

Of course, there is always the easy way to stop people who are being annoying, but as we all know, it’s so easy that it is impossible!

Topic: Off-topic / What kind of people annoy you IRL

Primarily people who don’t take controversial topics well. The kind that would rather go with the majority and never use their own thinking capability.

I kinda tone it down online because it just loses a lot of the fun if you can’t see the person directly, but in real life I am quite a troublemaker.

Topic: Kongregate / Where are my Kreds ???

Seems like you have had this problem on at least 3 separate instances. I’d consider stop supporting a game that unreliable.

It sounds like you received your kreds when you bought them, you just did not receive whatever in game things you used them on. I think that is the responsibility of the angel wrath devs, but I could be wrong.

Topic: Kongregate / Does Kongregate regret the idea of Kongpanions?

Regret is a good word. It’s clear that kongpanions failed, that really can’t be argued at this point. Nobody wants to use them in games, and they are not even a good collectable because of how stupid easy it is to obtain them.
