      I have been slowly going through the IMDB top 250 list since December and just saw your reviews in the movie thread. I've very glad that I'm not the only dumbass in the world who is trying to get through it all the way. I look forward to more of your reviews of the list. :)

        I very well might skip ahead to where you're at and join in. The motivation of keeping up might give me the motivation of getting through the doldrums of the foreign films which always seem to slow my progression.

        Like... I really have been caught on Cinema Paradiso, and I just have been skipping around the list for the past month because I don't want to get through it. xD

        Nope. I've just been reading classic lit since the start of the year. Turns out that was a pretty good idea.

      your posts got me thinking: I think there are people who have problems with their introversion, but they 'cope' by self-diagnosing/identifying themselves as 'slightly' autistic or aspergers or w.e (I don't really know how to negotiate all the terms tbh).

        And those people also try to find excuses for not having empathy and social grace.

        Self-diagnosis is a problem, but not as much of a problem as people trying to write off autism as a bunch of people self-diagnosing. As well there are as many people who think they can ignore autism by saying that it's just a self-diagnosis for assholes as there are people saying it's a self-diagnosis for the shy. The best thing is for people to be diagnosed if it actually factors into their lifestyle, but whether or not they are autistic is not really a call anyone should be making.

        Aspergers is no longer an officially recognized term because there is no meaningful difference, rather it was used to appeal to people who were very functional and didn't want any social stigma. I'm not even fond of the idea of a spectrum, it all runs off the idea that autism is based around low IQs when the IQs of autistic people are no less varied than those of neurotypical people. An autistic person with a mid level IQ is just a minority with less privilege than a white guy with the same IQ.

        I was actually backwards in my post about introversion/extroversion, I meant I was social as opposed to antisocial (don't know what you think about those terms either), but if you define introversion and extroversion as whether a person is energized by being alone or in a group, I definitely believe in and feel the effects of that. Maybe that's a more modern interpretation but I don't know another word for it.

        What you have to understand about autism and socializing is that it's not about nature vs. nurture, it's about being on a completely different page sense-wise in a world that preys on the weak and punishes differences. Every sense I have operates differently than yours, and that'd be true even if you were a fellow autist. Human communication works on an astounding number of basic levels that are taken for granted by 99% of the population, and communication between a NT and an AT will always feel somewhat off without significant learned mimicry.

      ok, so let me be honest: I have not finished playing Bravely Default, but I still want to move forward and make the mafia game. I am back from Thailand and now that I got a job, I know what hours are available to me. It'll be easier for me to plan around being up at certain times in the day and developing this game. Do you still want to do this?
      1. Acklow
        Acklow
        Otherwise, we can look at other options for making games if you'd rather go a different route. I'm just itching a little to make a game (albeit just a little), basically...

        Yus. December is gonna be work heavy for me but I'll have time to at least design the game, and hopefully run it early next year. I'm on IRC atm, I saw you just got off. I should be available at times four the next four days.

        Contrary to what that thug trax has to say, I'm not actually a dontnod employee. I meant to make that thread before the steam sale and there was just some happy timing. Thanks for bringing it up though.
