Search - "good vs evil"
It was not me doing the screaming but one of my colleagues. He is a super programmer and joined our team early this year as my partner on frontend development.
We're a React/React Native dev house and he has always been uncomfortable with how loose it goes here because of dynamic typing. He has been advocating typescript and Angular since he started and I even allowed him to use typescript on one of the projects.
A month back I started to make jokes about how dead angular was (trigger alert) and he almost lost it. We are good friends so he as been taking it in good spirits.
Last week our boss allowed him a chance to propose a Tech stack for a new project. Naturally he started comparing Angular vs React. I chime in to trigger him again with "why would we work with a bloated zombie framework", he picked up his chair and almost threw it at me while screaming " React is just hacky ". I was laughing so hard and in the end we both did some research. We are proposing Jquery to our boss... (Evil laugh)1

WE SALUTE YOU ALL!!! ∠(^ー^)4
I'm starting to see this way o much today, first @Root, now @Bubbles.
Today... is going to be an interesting day.11
Since I'm getting back into gamedev, here's more gamerant for you. Today's topic?
Sometimes the baddies are not as cool, not as memorable, not as satisfying to fucking kill and then teabag their decaying corpses.
And a bunch of times the enemy is a downright pain in the ass rather than a challenge. Like the fucking lost souls in DOOM, screw those flying bitches a million times up the fucking ass.
But then take the kind of foe you actually ENJOY fighting. THAT is your classic enemy. You have a goddamn blood feud with these fucking bastards, you have a reason to face them and perhaps even the motivation to carry out mass genocide.
This is not to say you would want to *always* have to fight only this type of enemy; some variation is alright -- but when they DO show up, shit gets real. But what happens when they STOP showing up altogether?
WELL, you know what happens don't you? "I'd rather be fighting X than these annoying pieces of shit"
I like bashing in some fucking goblin skulls, that is my reason to live. I'll go through some skeletons and zombies, SURE. But when I get back to the surface, you let me spill some more GOBLINOID blood. OR ELSE.
Eh, and what about those times when you fight other humans and that's very nice but midway through the game some demonic/undead/otherwordly bitches pop up and you'd rather restart the game and go through the 'good part' one more time than face a single satanic nazi magical zombie ever again? Yeah, fuck that.
Change it up and all that if you will so the pacing and atmosphere and whatnot isn't always the fucking same; but FUCKED if sometimes you mess the whole goddamn thing just for a breath of 'fresh air'. Well, sometimes, we DONT want any fresh air you fucking idiot.
It's like the 'do the unexpected' bullshit in TV and cinema. Specially if you're doing it at like, right at the end of the fucking thing. We're too goddamn close to the ending you can't just do a narrative 180 at this point you fucking moron. YOU have led me to draw some CONCLUSIONS by now. Betray them and you betray ME.
As in, WHY should we trust the story if the story's only aim is to "suprise" us? There will always be a """TWIST""" that ooooh we didn't expect, except it doesn't make any fucking sense and is only there because I wouldn't see it coming, precisely because it doesn't make any fucking sense.
So RESPECT your audience. If we're playing GOOD vs EVIL, then make EVIL interesting. Don't make me campaign against EVERY FUCKING FORM of EVIL. Give me a LIMITED EVIL. An EVIL I can HATE. An EVIL I can feel like FIGHTING.
In conclusion, give me FEW but GOOD fucking enemies.
I don't need """THOUSANDS""" of anyshit. I only need SOME foul sons of bitches whose names I can pronounce and more importantly fucking remember. I need GOBLINS.
BRING ME some NASTY fucking GOBLINS, for my SWORD is at the ready. I will BATHE in their VENOMOUS blood and DEFILE every last one of their SANCTITIES. THAT is my mission.
But WAIT. What is that?! GOBLINS?! THEY'RE AT THE GATES! And they brought some WORG RIDERS?! AAH, you GREEN pieces of SHIT! I will SLAY you ALL!
*multiple stabbings later*
Ah, doesn't that feel nice you whores. When 90% of what you do is fighting and the fighting isn't a PAIN in the ass? When you're HAPPY and WILLING to take part in it?!! EH?! ISN'T THAT NICE?! ISN'T IT???!!!
Fuck every developer that doesn't understand CLASSIC ENEMY and has me deal with their new dumbass, ill-conceived idea of what a foe is and then change it up for another terrible fucking idea, never to be consistent with who the fuck I am facing. FUCK. THEM.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to ride this horse into the sunset. TA-TA!4
