$20 for a pair of socks???

#### Your selection: Limited Stock

Limited stock of an item that hasn’t even been produced? Isn’t that like limited supply of JPEG’s of ships?

Well they ain’t going to make them forever so I guess in one sense they are limited!

Remember when game design used to be about designing games rather than seeking new and innovative ways to milk people?

Are they going to sell JPEGs of stickers to complete the socks or something?

BDSSE.

Best Damn SOCS Socks Ever.

I have paid about that for very high quality socks from specialty manufacturers like Solmate, though admittedly I have bought them from people doing Dragonboat when a portion of the price went to that worthy group. The socks, by the way, like their hats, are incredibly comfortable and durable, and really good looking. My wife loves them as well.

Game design, yes. This is pure consumer capitalism. As I tell my students in our Game Studio (well, and everyone else too), while there are things about the game industry that are unique to it, in the end it’s still built on the same principles of selling consumer commodities as any other creative media business in the modern age.

Yeah, I’ve paid that for merino wool snowboarding socks.

Never underestimate the value of warm and dry feet I always say.

But when will we see them sell milk?

From Whales!

Whale Milk!

Considering what their whales must look like… eww. Just eww.

For all the talk of jpgs, Inside Star Citizen has just released a look at 3 cool new moons created with the latest tech in about a month.

It also has a tour of the soon to be released Carrack. It’s a lot of ship and it looks awesome.

There are actually a ton of fully flyable ships in the game already.

Is it easy to crash these ships?

It does look fantastic, although I would have hoped for a more stable framerate than that. It was pausing and hitching all over the place. (I’m speaking of the outdoor shots with all of those rocks. The indoor shots appeared smooth.)
But hey, at least they didn’t try to hide it, which I’m sure they could have.

And at 7:08, the faucet layout is confusing.
One sink has hot on the right and cold on the left, while the sink next to it appears to be opposite.
And yeah, I’m nitpicking now. :)

Everyone knows that cot is on the left and hold is on the right.

dammit I didn’t want actual socks, I just want a jpeg…

I think someone is missing the advantages that Derpsocks might add to their own long-awaited space game experience.

Choggle socks?
