    • I enjoy stimulating discussions about Friday the 13th's sociological functions. (Not mere "catharsis," as some are quick to conclude -- but complex allegories.)

    • I'm -not- a "Jason fan," per se, but -am- a fan of survivors overcoming their oppressors! (With a more-level -- and therefore empowering -- playing field in the video game, than in the films.)

    • Beyond that, I cannot really promote "my interests" without going "off-topic." (Gun Media -is- watching, after all.)

  1. Ugh, another double-post for JPops to merge! Such a shame. Anyway, I'll saunter-off until more voices have chimed-in.
  2. Aha, not just the people who play disruptively, but also the lounge lizards who just hang-out in the lobby and insult people over the voice service... In another word: loiterers. It's a shame anyone can loiter in the lobby without playing. But if the the server were to force lobby-loiterers into a game, such as by automatic assignment after a fixed time of just being in the lobby, then that would convert every negative lobby-dweller into a griefer at some point. My casual use of the term "griefer" is, therefore, correct. Nevertheless, I won't bother defending my point any farther (at least not on these boards, maybe on a separate blog) because staff don't like it when I debate the meanings of terms. -Q.E.D.
  3. Some players / stream viewers / customers have expressed dissatisfaction at both Black characters being assigned to low-intelligence archetypes. I've a remedy for this! Make a "speedy nerd" archetype for an eventual DLC release. Make his character "skin" resemble Steve Urkel from the TV show <i>Family Matters</i>. If Gun Media gets the rights to use Urkel's likeness, then he could say, "Did I do that?!?" and other Urkelisms when messing-up a skill check. But if Gun Media is unable to license the Urkel character, then perhaps give his substitute character some green-rimmed glasses and suspenders in lieu of red; a crew cut instead of a flat-top; avoid the Urkelisms; etc. Whatever the subtle tweaks necessary to avoid licensing issues, the Urkel knock-off would provide both a unique look -- Jaleel White in fully-buttoned polo shirt; hiked-above-the-waist shorts; <i>Wall Street</i>-style suspenders; and Coke-bottle eyeglasses -- and a blend of stats not-yet released as an archetype: namely, 10 intelligence with 10 speed. The Urkel expy's other stats might be logical for an easily-startled, accident-prone bookworm who barges into his neighbor's home very loudly: 1 stealth; 2 luck; 3 composure; and 5 stamina. (The "5" being for when he lasted 2 minutes, sheerly by running around like a scaredy-cat, with the boxer who knocked-down Theo in one episode.)
  4. I believe it is more fun to let the griefers play, so that we see "mob-rules justice" when they get ganged-upon by other players. The only real -material- drawback is that counselors who massacre a fellow counselor, even a notoriously troublesome peer, are penalized -200 CP under the "Betrayer" heading at match's end. And of course, some people live for such a spectacle. They think along the lines of, "So many people tried to kill me today! I -love- this attention." But if the options came down to a "vote system" versus a "host insta-bans" for -only- that host, then I choose the host-specific ban lists, rather than a general blacklist of people who might, or might not quite, deserve their reputations as griefers. Tendentious Tendencies != Necessarily Griefer
  5. Yup, it's not like he edited his posts or anything. Or failed to create an introductory thread. (Or made parenthetical remarks, the ultimate peccadillo on these boards!) Is anyone required to make an introductory thread anymore as their first post? Or has that formerly enforced rule been abandoned, due to the volume of users?
  6. Yes, team-killing is allowed. However, you receive a "Betrayer" penalty of -200 CP at the end of the match.
  7. Although I've enjoyed the tête-à-tête between RevolutionBlade and Bee-Where-Uh-Bares, it's time to euthanize this bête noir! Let the Litmus test for determining an "accurate-enough mask" be this: Is the level of detail sufficient for us to correctly identify which "Part [N]" Jason is appearing in a screen-grab of gameplay, based on the mask alone? ...As for the fences: Breaking in them in one swing is -very- generous, as realistically, those ain't snow fences!
  8. You're not entitled to a game that -doesn't- star Millennials. Heck, based on your attitude, I'd say that if you programmed a horror game to mock Millennials, you'd have the default gameplay mechanism be, "Call Text helicopter parents, and then play video games until they show-up to save me from this dire predicament." http://senatorjpo.com/f/Friday_13th_Choking_Animation_(Great_Bait_Mate_Extended_Final)_350X250.gif
  9. Jenny's deformities are a karmic balance to her high "luck" stat. And speaking of hands... ...It's not -that- unusual for women to have huge hands. I work in manufacturing, and a few of the shorter women have hands that are comparable to those of taller men.
  10. Not to sound overly sensitive, but I'm glad Gun Media chose to have the police off-screen and therefore be immune to assault. While the developers' rationale might have been to keep the game mechanics concise, my reason for keeping the police off-field is to prevent players from trying to kill cops as Jason. (There -are- states considering making crimes against police into "hate crimes," due to polarized opinions on the role of law enforcement in a modern, diverse society.) Being unable to attack police in-game will help stave-off the sociopathic fantasies of those who've a grudge against law enforcement. Any who -really- need to scratch their cop-killing itch, can play Grand theft Auto.
  11. Steve Christy seemed like the stereotypical "dumb rich guy." Besides the points mentioned -- notably, not realizing a stigmatized property is a poor investment -- Stevie C. failed to realize that someone stalking towards you with a hunting knife, even if a recognized an acquaintance, should probably be run-away from instead of warmly greeted.
  12. So, who's the lucky first-one to get an enema with that thing? #FreddyGotFingered
  13. Changes that I notice: • Signatures are gone. -I do see -some- merit in this, as having multiple animated GIFs among signatures does lag browsers. • Background images no longer wrap-around the background on profiles. -They're more like "header" images. No more ruining the foreboding theme of this forum, by having a bright, expansive wallpaper covering the background gloom. • Thread viewers are no longer displayed. (Many of you remember, they used to appear the bottom of threads.) -If you want to know who's viewing which thread, then you must visit the profile of that individual. This, of course, will encourage more profile views.
  14. "...My recommendation to you is to cool it and maybe try to interact casually." This doesn't make sense to me. "Cool it?" I'm not the one accusing others of being "condescending" (what "JPops" called me); a "troll" (what "Camp Voorhees Hockey" called me); or anything. There's -literally- nothing to "cool." Show me otherwise! Cite examples. For instance, do you take umbrage with me questioning your "recommendations?" Don't just say, "Cool it," because that's too vague. What do you mean that I'm not "casual" enough? "...You can type well..." Thanks! I'll accept your compliment. But in terms of following your advice to "be more casual," as you've iterated in another thread... ...-What- does being more "casual" entail? Use more Internet slang? Use poor grammar and omit punctuation? Because honestly, I don't know what you mean! "Casual" might mean different things to you than to me -- and because -you're- making the mandate, I need to know -precisely- what you're demanding, in a sense of, "Here's -how- you act more casually on -this- forum." P.S. Yes, I underlined a few sentences in my post. There's -nothing- in the forum rules that says, "Don't underline." If you want to interpret an imperative in the rules that -doesn't exist-, then that's "on you." P.P.S. By posting specifically about my posting style, -you- took the thread off-topic. This thread is about the once-considered game mechanic of having failed skill-checks on the phone box resulting in player electrocution. It sets a poor example to the rest of the forum, when the -administrator himself- goes off-topic.
  15. "Hockey" guy is "revenge trolling." Two wrongs != Right Except, I never insulted anyone. And if your kids get messed-up by your stewardship, then that's on you, no matter how many times you say, "SenatorJPO is a troll." Yeah, keep saying that! Because others will "report" you, and you'll get "warning points." [Edited once: Accidental double-quote.]
