    • I'm a Big, Fat Liar and I Have a Confession to Make

      2 weeks ago

      LadyOddDuck

      I've been lying to a lot of you for a while now and it's time for me to come clean.


      I've told people many times that I've never played a Fallout. Well, I have played Fallout. Actually, I've played a LOT of Fallout.


      Fallout-76.gif


      I am incredibly excited and unbelievably proud to announce that I am working on Fallout 76. The hype and excitement of the public reveals these past few weeks have been incredible. I am delighted and humbled to see such a positive reaction from so many people I know from the community and whose opinions I hold in high esteem. It is such an honor to work with one of the most talented groups in the industry at a studio that is so supportive and committed to making great games.


      I encourage you all to join the B.E.T.A. to help make this game even more awesome.


      I cannot wait to rebuild West Virginia with you.

    • Another Busy Weekend

      1 month ago

      LadyOddDuck

      I've had a jam-packed 3 day weekend and we're only 2/3 of the way through!


      On Saturday, I did another volunteer meetup with some awesome nerds from RT Austin, Rooster Teeth, and Screw Attack. It was a ton of fun. I touched so much meat.

      DeJ4lWdV0AA5AX0.jpg


      Today, I launched a new group for women, POC, LGBTQIA+, and disabled devs (and aspiring devs) in Austin. I'm hoping it takes off because I have a lot of fun ideas and I'd love a group to share them with. If you're interested in joining, let me know and I'll shoot you a link.


      I also, finally, bought a new vacuum which is cordless and super convenient. Here's hoping it was worth the money. Makes me itchy just thinking about spending so much on a vacuum.


      I wonder what tomorrow holds...


      How have you been spending the weekend?

    • I Get Anxious About the Strangest Things...

      3 months ago

      LadyOddDuck

      Y'all know me... Saying I'm nervous is an every day occurrence. Anxiety is my constant companion. My baseline level of nerves will probably always be higher than everyone else's. But recently I've been nervous about something very specific: One of my friends is moving here.


      Weird thing to be nervous about, right? Some of my nerves are due to the fact that they're partially moving because I live here. That means if something goes wrong and moving here turns out to be the worst decision of their life, it's kinda my fault. But, to be honest, there's something more nagging at me...


      I don't know if I can be a good friend. My last in-person friendships ended when high school did. My friendships since have been based online. I haven't had a "real life" friend in a decade and I'm horribly rusty. Sure, I've met/hung out with my online friends a few times over the years. But I'm super awkward and very slow to warm up. So what it all boils down to is that I don't know if I'm capable of being as good a friend in person as I am online. What if I flub it all up?


      Just something that's been on my mind.


      <3 Duck

    • Archives

      3 months ago

      LadyOddDuck

      According to Mike Quinn, VP of Engineering at Rooster Teeth, inactive or defunct groups will be archived in the next iteration of the RT community site. Archiving implies that data will be preserved, but given that we lost all our PMs in the last switchover, well... I'm a little concerned. So I've spent most of today going back and archiving (aka copying and pasting) all the journal and forum posts in The Angels/The Nerd Nest group here on the site.


      All 297 pages worth.


      Good God, that's a lot of words. More importantly, that's a lot of memories. Seeing as I'm now just 6 days away from my 5th year on the site and today is RT's 15th birthday, I think it's fitting to reminisce a bit. And what better way to do it than to look through that group. To see all those conversations we had. To recognize names I haven't seen in years, and to wonder where they are and what they're up to now. To see the beginnings of the friendships I've developed over the last few years and hope to maintain over a lifetime.


      If you had told me 5 years ago that I would have had all these amazing (and some heartbreaking) experiences with this community, I would have thought you were crazy. If you had told me 5 years ago I'd be living in Austin working in the games industry (and for Bethesda, no less), I'd have told you to shut your freaking mouth.


      What a weird thing life is. Life will take you so many places you don't expect and it will be filled with so many wonderful things. Like our experience as a community here, the road will never be perfectly smooth. But those lumps and bumps and battle wounds remind us of how strong we are and how far we've come together.


      I intend to go through the same archiving process with my personal journal here, cause there's a lot I don't want to lose. I suggest you all do the same and take some time to look back and see how you've grown.


      But seriously, don't trust that everything you put on the internet will stick around forever. And don't assume that something you delete will ever be gone. It's one of those strange paradoxes I don't think I'll ever get used to.


      Are you reminiscing today? What are some of your best memories from this community?

    • A Week in the Life

      4 months ago

      LadyOddDuck

      It's been a really full week for me. Lots of announcements and whatnot, including the community stuff at RTX (which I am still super hyped for). In that journal, I mentioned wanting to rant. Well, I started the week with only 1 rant, but now I've got a couple built up. I guess these aren't really even rants; they're more "Hey! Don't do this, butthead!"


      1. Don't act like an authority figure unless you actually have authority. I've noticed men do this more than women. You can hate me for calling that out, I don't care. You know what happens when you assume authority? You confuse the people who don't know better and alienate the ones who do. You don't have to step on other people's toes to show you can be a leader. In fact, doing that proves quite the opposite. Be helpful, yes, but also be humble. You will gain nothing by pushing yourself into the spotlight when you haven't earned it.


      2. Volunteering is hard work. I don't know why some people expect it to be fun and games. It is quite often either physically or emotionally exhausting. Sometimes it's both. Know what you're getting into before you get into it.


      3. This has been bouncing around on my Twitter timeline recently, but it also affected me personally this week. Criticism and bashing are vastly different and being negative in public isn't the most prudent idea. If you're going to be overtly negative about something, maybe make sure you aren't doing so around the people who worked on it? Or even the peers of someone who worked on it. Like point 1, doing this will only get you alienated. Nobody wants to associate with those who are disrespectful of the time and energy of others.


      On a lighter note, this week has been exceptionally nice for me. Started the day yesterday by co-hosting RT Austin's 2nd charity meetup. Everyone left smiling and we made a positive impact on the organization we volunteered for. I'm going to call it a success.

      I am ridiculously sore today, however. Who knew gardening was such an upper back workout? Kinda loving it, though. I've been looking for ways to strengthen the muscles in my back.


      Now I'm off to work on a game pitch for my mentoring meeting!


      How's your week been?

    I actually don't have any experience with the app. :/ Based on what I see on iTunes, it does seem to be meant for FIRST members, but I would assume it should at the very least let you log in and upgrade your account? Try Support and see if you can get the answers you need.
