Of course this was years after the Angry Birds phenomenon, but still..

Admin Prime : (13 February 2016 - 06:00 PM)

lol no. Rovio has hundreds of- welp

Lame Plant42 87421F : (13 February 2016 - 06:01 PM)

lol

Admin Prime : (13 February 2016 - 06:02 PM)

They've been bleeding staff since then though.

Admin Prime : (13 February 2016 - 06:03 PM)

Probably about half that size. They got arrogant and grew way too big to be sustainable, thinking Angry Birds would keep forever.

Admin Prime : (13 February 2016 - 06:03 PM)

Same shit that happened to Zynga, and that will happen to King.

Lame Plant42 87421F : (13 February 2016 - 06:04 PM)

Angry Birds was their 52 game? I guess that's a shitload of trial and error. I dunno how shallow/terribad the rest of their games were prior to AB, but at least we know it wasn't someone fiddling with shit and stumbling across fuck-jillions of dollars, like (I believe) that WoW-ripoff Minecraft guy did.

Admin Prime : (13 February 2016 - 06:05 PM)

Fun fact: Angry Birds is a clone of another game.

Lame Plant42 87421F : (13 February 2016 - 06:05 PM)

I don't see the point in expanding so much. Did they have so many ideas that they wanted to keep hiring more people to make new IPs? I guess they did make a shitload of spinoffs and adaptations... I guess that's where they allocated their resources. That's prolly what they did with their money.

Lame Plant42 87421F : (13 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

I'm not sure I knew that clone, thing, but cue Ngamer's TV Tropes page to "everything is a ripoff of something that came before it" or whatever. :P

Admin Prime : (13 February 2016 - 06:07 PM)

Crush the Castle served as a template for the gameplay.

Lame Plant42 87421F : (13 February 2016 - 06:07 PM)

yeah, that's definitely it. :P I did see it before, and I think that was precisely the time when Ngamer posted that link

Admin Prime : (13 February 2016 - 06:08 PM)

Basically 1:1, and they've admitted they were "inspired" by it.

firefox keeps crashing, lol. twice now. It doens't *CRASH*, but the screen blanks out and I have to minimize/restore the browser to make it show shit again. :P

"Display driver has stopped responding and has recovered." (again)

Admin Prime : (13 February 2016 - 06:21 PM)

Update your driver. A recent Win10 update (I'm assuming you're on Win10) partially broke a lot of video drivers and they had to be update.

Lame Plant42 87421F : (13 February 2016 - 06:26 PM)

Not sure how to update the driver, but I'd assume it's on that "update fukken evrythng" page in the settings. :P

Lame Plant42 87421F : (13 February 2016 - 06:27 PM)

ALso, it just happened a 4th time

Admin Prime : (13 February 2016 - 07:07 PM)

Right Click your Start button, click Device Manager

Admin Prime : (13 February 2016 - 07:08 PM)

Click the drop-down next to Display adapters, right click what's there and click Update Driver Software

Admin Prime : (13 February 2016 - 07:08 PM)

Search automatically, follow through

Lame Plant42 87421F : (13 February 2016 - 07:19 PM)

lol, I've never right-clicked the start button on Windows 10 before now :P

Lame Plant42 87421F : (13 February 2016 - 07:21 PM)

"The best driver software for your device is already installed." :|

Lame Plant42 87421F : (13 February 2016 - 07:21 PM)

:\*

Lame Plant42 87421F : (13 February 2016 - 08:22 PM)

I need to get your cell number so I can text from various phones asking you or telling you shit and addressing you by a name other than your own. Then I can make it to your fb feed. :P

Admin Prime : (13 February 2016 - 09:12 PM)

noh

Lame Plant42 87421F : (13 February 2016 - 09:16 PM)

Lol, it's happened like 2 or 3 times in a short window now lol

Lame Plant42 87421F : (13 February 2016 - 09:19 PM)

I could be like, "Hi, Jessie. I didn't mean to use your number so soon, but I just felt like saying that that I had fun with you today. :)" And then you could be like, "Better start looking for a new bitch."
