Slot machine behaviors
« on: October 09, 2019, 06:40:29 pm »
The behaviors of slot machines in the Game corners are so much more complicated than meets the eye (Gen I, Gen II), and with many oddities that may be considered as glitches. However, our wiki's documentation of them is woefully incomplete. Presumably this is because: (1) It is difficult to argue whether any specific oddity should be a glitch, given that those behaviors are intended to be obscure, and (2) it is difficult to even describe any particular glitch about the slot machines without first explaining their behaviors in normal cases.

Given this, should we just have pages titled "Slot machine behaviors (Generation N)", with a section named "Oddities" or "Potential glitches", and let the readers decide for themselves whether they should count?

ooh, hold up, relevant media incoming:

Gen 2: https://youtu.be/ojq3xqfRF6I

(for context for new readers seeing this thread)


Ask me about betrayal.
Ask me about depression.
Ask me about death.
Ask me about destruction.
Ask me about hardship.
I've been through s**t.
If you need to talk to someone, my PM inbox is always open.

Sounds wise. Yes.

✿ Hi, I'm Evie. Transgender woman but spiritually doesn't believe 'male'/'female' needs to be defined; lives more stereotypically like a woman/I'm a 'girly' nerd who discovered herself. Call me whichever pronouns you like. :)

Feel free to contact me here about anything regarding the site.

Forgiveness. I feel that the more people pray to our greatest source/God/mathematical equality for world peace, the more and more it manifests into reality (until our next spiritual death).

Thank you Nyapon for this lovely artwork. :3
