DEDICATED WAM

I submitted a clip of "dedotaded wam" a while ago and no one voted on it.

sad face.

I've been trying to find and archive SuperKai64's online presence, because you know the poor guy's about to get trolled to death.

"HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE AUTISM?

....

....

Yeah, we're not gonna answer that..."

I didn't make it much farther. This is one of the most painful things I've seen.

I'm thinking that kid thought he was doing some epic level troll that would allow him to go down in 4chan history or some bullshit and it just didn't pan out how he probably visualized it. (hence the camera and his smart-ass "Don't all answer at once!" taunt)

Jet Bin Fever
These fucking people. Oh man. If it makes them happy to play the game, I'm all for it. But, I feel like there is a lot of exploitation on display here.
badideasinaction
I've started to really regret my involvement with fandom stuff, because I can't shake the feeling it's exploiting and enabling people who can't balance these things. It's all smiles and "oh wow, fandom is so awesome" in public, but I keep speaking to a growing number of people involved in it with careers, homes, real-life responsibilities and we've been privately expressing that this is seriously fucking a lot of people up.

Thank you.

Next time I have to speak in front of an audience, I'm going to watch this right before. I have a mild stutter and my mouth goes bone dry when I'm nervous, but compared to these kids I'm the perverse lovechild of Martin Luther King and Adolf Hitler.

Wow, that is one *perverse* lovechild

The money this game has made is infuriating.
ashtar.
Yeah, and it's a total rip off of Dwarf Fortress, which is even more autistic and free! Also the graphics are ascii.

Really? I'd say it's awesome. With next to no marketing budget, it's made millions, it continues to update with new features, it's moddable out the yin-yang, and I'd say playing it is far more worthwhile (if not fun, if you're into sandbox/construction) than the latest bro-shooter or gazillion-dollar AAA game that doesn't pay a decent wage to its devs/creators and is a clone of something that's already out there anyway.

If the game's not your idea of fun, that's one thing, but you can't deny its success is honestly earned.

EvilHomer
It's both awesome and infuriating. Awesome because the game is brilliant and Notch deserves to be rewarded for it. Infuriating because Notch is a fat lazy fuck who pretty much abandoned the game once it became clear that the beta was a hit, leaving us with half finished product that went through sporadic bite-sized revisions and never delivered on many of it's promised features.

memedumpster
Your devotion to a game that sucks doesn't add any balm to my irritation. Love you guys, though!

Once again, I agree with SPK and disagree with meme. I've never played Minecraft, but I've also never seen a Minecraft commercial on my TV with a song by Eminem playing over it.

Cummon md. The only bad thing about this game making buckets of money is that every indie dev thinks their shitty game will make money too. But instead you've got a wide-open sandbox that lets you build logical circuits. I'm with SPK. And I'm more of a Notch apologist than EH. Development did not really slow down when he started looking for the next big thing (and I'm sorry the space game got abandoned). The game has practically doubled in features since then, with no additional cost to players.

Speaking as someone who's burnt a couple of years on an unfinished rpg, this video was a cautionary tale of success. I couldn't take my eyes away.

Fair enough. I'll still take a game like Minecraft where you're given an environment, an objective, and tools over a game like Call of Duty where you're given a straight line and a button to move along it.

EvilHomer
I'd just like to stress that I love Minecraft, finished or not, and I too have burnt two years on it. As much as I hate Notch for being an incompetent developer who needed the modding community to sort things out for him, the game itself is more than good enough as is. For example:

http://fav.me/d6w7hfy

That's a screenshot of my main city. It's not a perfect screenshot, as you can only get a clear view of one of the city's nine districts. The Japanese school is on the left, the Arena is on the hill in the foreground, and you can just barely make out the giant statue of Pedobear that dominates Kuma's Forum in the north. The main port, the market district, 80% of the low-lying homes and shops, and most of the details on my castle are not visible, but it should give you some idea of the level of autism involved here.

I've got two other full sized cities, each with their own castles and tourist attractions, plus over a dozen smaller villages and settlements, including extensive inland farming communities, a mountaintop airship forge, and a forest village dedicated to the worship of a sacred statue of Fluttershy. There are also at least three major mining complexes, two archeological digsites, and a network of vaulted, deep-subterranean rails that connects all of the mines and cities together.

exy
I meant two years developing my own unfinished rpg, actually (flip that cautionary tale around), but I'm sharing the MC love. I don't think Notch "needed mod devs to sort things out." Rather, he built a moddable game, let people mod it for free, and incorporated some of the most popular mods into the game. He's a pretty good developer, from what I hear reported of his screencasts.

Nice-lookin' town. I built an ugly castle and a lighthouse. Never got around to a hot-air balloon.

Not that I disagree with Memedumpster, but this digression has interrupted a continuous DiMaggiean stream of excellent comments

memedumpster
I love that you guys teamed up and complicatedly crafted a blocky line in the sand. Achievement unlocked : warm fuzzies and a shout out to your touch therapies!

Think of all of the real, tangible stuff you could have done with that amount of time.

SteamPoweredKleenex
Like surfing the net?

EvilHomer
Yeah, if I wasn't wasting my time on that, I would have been wasting it on something like porn or laughing at Sonic fans.

Hooker
God damn do I hate the "think of all the stuff you could have done instead" comment. Do people just not understand what a fucking hobby is? You don't do hobbies to produce something. You do a hobby to have fun.

It's a short skip from "you spent time not producing something, idiot," to full-blown objectivism. As a culture, we should be far more impressed with people's hobbies and far less impressed with their joyless production.

spikestoyiu
Whhhoooahhhhhhh.

As someone who has multiple hobbies and is also alive, I do know what hobbies are. I promise! I can't speak for any of the other people who may have joked or suggested that spending hours building ugly, virtual versions of real things is kind of dumb. It's your time, obviously. Spend it as you wish. I don't think there's anything wrong with playing videogames as a hobby (hey, I do this!), but dedicating the kind of time required to do some of these things is just an insane waste. Especially when all it takes is a faulty hard drive for them to disappear forever.

Sputum
everything dissappears forever

You could, for example, lift a hunk of cast iron over your head a few hundred times. Or build a city in mindcraft. Either piece of wankery is a form of exercise, depending on which head you find more useful.

memedumpster
You guys took this to a lot of places. I only thought that for all the cash this person raked in off of autistic people doing mindlessly repetitive tasks, it should have given you all more.

Spectacular. Spec-fucking-tacular.

I made it two minutes until the pain was just too much.

The things the internet says about Minecraft fans are true. All the rumors, the mean spirited jokes, the autism wise cracks...it's all dead on true.

I can't even laugh at this or feel better about myself at these people's expense. It's just saddening.
