Rather nervous/anxious at the prospect of meeting/conversation a bit overwhelming, but probably wouldn’t hurt, I live in Ohio so phone call would probably be best.
I’ll probably spiral into a bunch of game specific stuff. Like how I’ve suggested to GSL (The main Starcraft pro scene/tournament managers in S.Korea) to get an iMax setup for their studio and VR feed for us folks at home.
I figure that it’d have to be implemented in SC3, or to rewrite SC2’s code to interface with the iMax display properly. Never have I heard of a game that’s playable on an iMax theater, or anybody with that level of home theater either.
The kind of socialism I want is where Jay Leno with his 50 vintage car garage (and super elites like him) give back to the consumer - a world where “they” enrich their fan base, the very people that make them what they are. So that we/the people can actually have the at home iMax to enjoy their works with. Instead we get some whitewash/one size fits all “tax the rich” campaign that punishes success and somehow portrays the AOC’s and Bernies of the world as heroes/geniuses, for coming up with the bright idea of using govn’t threats+force to steal from and shame the rich, who are the ones actually creating the things that make our plush lives so enjoyable.
Will probably just end up repeating things I’ve already written here on the forums. Or worse, talk about suppression of technology.
Things like implementing RFID chips instead of barcodes at grocery/retail stores. Technology that would sense what you put into your cart/leave the store with and charge your credit account with the store. Paying for your goods as you leave the store automatically, eliminating the need for cashiers / checkout lines.
Would probably have to roll out new/more strict anti-theft measures AKA watching customers more closely so hackers/thieves don’t reprogram the RFID chips with their smart phones and change prices.
I presume you’ve looked at my “Featured Topic” - that has a pretty good idea for revolutionizing the arcade. I want gaming to get to the point of actually being realistic simulations vs going off noticing when the pixels are out of place (map memorization), alerting you that there’s a baddie.
I want games to move toward more realism instead of perks and loadout metas ruling the day. I think with all the global surveillance that humanity is capable of that the whole world could be “captured” via drones and satellite imagery. Instead of making maps from scratch in engines, take microcosms of the real world capture and use those with additional terrain features and polish with overlays + texture aesthetics to give the desired immersion outcome.
If games were capable of sampling and making random configurations from this real world capture people could play on a new map/sandbox every match eliminating map memorization.
