Anyone who hasn't played Rocket Knight Adventures and it's sequel Sparkster, do so now.



Done?  Good, now you're as excited as I am about the prospect of this :D

Wikkity! / Flashmobs are teh funnage

If you haven't seen the Xbox 360 gun-fingers ad before, watch it now:

Done?  Good.  Well, a few friends and I thought it looked like fun and that we should try and recreate it.  So we did -

Unfortunately the best bit - when we all got up and walked away as if nothing happened when a number of security types came running about 30 seconds later - isn't on camera (the guy in green got the most attention, surprisingly - his top gave the game away as it says BANG <_<).  Also bonus points for anyone who can tell which one I am :)

Green Hill is now my desktop <3

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to discover The Truth(tm) about any issue you like, from one who is never wrong.  Ask away (unless you're genus, in which case form a coherent question first please).

First answer to the womenfolks here (and most of the menfolks too really): sorry, I'd rather just stay friends.  Except with RPG, obviously - he gets to be neither.

I want to know how he types with his wheels.*

*for the thickies, this isn't our genus, it's the Hyundai Genus and I'm dicking around >_>

Competition Central / In Memoriam: My Competitive Integrity
« on: August 19, 2008, 06:58:25 PM »
To scalp or not to scalp, that is the question.  Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous n00bs, or to take arms against a sea of h4x and by opposing end them? To play, to game - no more - and by game to say we end the heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks that pr0s are heir to, 'tis a consummation devoutly to be wish'd. To play, to game; to game - perchance to pwn - ay, there's the rub.

So I quoted this in the chat, and nobody knew where it was from, and it turns out Google doesn't either.  It's from something of an obsession of mine, so anyone who get's the reference wins a prize (and a good one, as soon as I think of it):

It's time to play a new game - it's called HAVOC!

General Sonic / Dark Brotherhood trailer
« on: June 04, 2008, 08:22:46 PM »

Yeah, the structure of the thing is cheesy as hell, but there are some decent production values going into it which makes me think they actually give a shit (the dramatic voiceover guy is OTT for this, but meh).  I still hold out hope this won't be the first sucky Bioware game.

This fad is now officially over.

General Sonic / More positive news about Unleased!
« on: April 30, 2008, 02:44:09 PM »

Sonic Team are not doing the Wii version!  Dimps, the team behind Rush are.  Methinks this means Unleashed might well be a very different game for Wii vs everything else, which means it has 2 shots at not sucking.

Gaming and Grazing / ITT the world fails at games
« on: March 05, 2008, 12:35:57 PM »

FIVE.  MILLION.  COPIES.  And we wonder why the market is flooded with franchised crap that's only sales point is it's marketed to hell.  DO NOT WANT.

Ah well, it could be S1GBA doing these sales, it could always be worse ;)

Gaming and Grazing / Mass Effect coming to PC!
« on: February 12, 2008, 12:18:41 PM »

Given that I have a bitchin PC and am getting a PS3, there is now officially no reason for me to own a 360 :)

Gaming and Grazing / What kind of cheater are you?
« on: April 23, 2007, 09:08:08 AM »

Interesting read, this one.  I tend towards the puritanical side of things, although I do read game guides if:
1) the game is large and I want to find all the hidden stuffs after I'm done with the main game (Oblivion, Zelda)
2) the game is an online competitive one, and it's for strat comparison (I read a lot of ZH stuffs)
3) the game is a strategy one like Civ4 or FM07 as above
4) the game design is broken and/or retarted (good call eggFL :)

Where do you guys stand on this one?

That's right, I've knacked one of the tendons in my airdash finger, so I'm under doctor's orders not to play Advance 2 for a bit.  I like to think that's indicative of my dedication to pwning and not of the fact I'm a tit :)

It was worth it - you'll see when submissions come back up . . .

Beef / I'm a pillock (vid upload mistake)
« on: October 15, 2006, 07:48:52 PM »
I was going through my vids and found a couple I hadn't uploaded, so I thought I would.  I also thought it'd save time to use the back button when submitting them.  I did this, forgetting to change the level, and so appear to be claiming to have got 5:58 for EU1 Sonic - I haven't, that's an Aero Egg vid.  Could someone please change it so I don't look like quite such a tit?  Thanking ye kindly.

Oh, and could someone please explain why my submitting an improved EU1 time has resulted in Quartz gaining 3 points and tying me for the championship?  Seems a bit odd.

Gaming and Grazing / PS3 to cure cancer

I kid you not -

Just another reason why Microsoft and their fanboys are evil*.

*This is not true, the fanboys are usually okay :)

General Sonic / Since fangames seem in vogue at TSC . . .
« on: July 11, 2006, 08:53:07 PM »
. . . here's mine -  Only the first two levels are working, and it's quite possible that won't change since MMF is such a horrible development environment and I've so much else on right now. 

My current records are:

Great Forest: 19.38
The Plains: 19.81

Use the Time Attack button in the bottom-left, and press R mid-run to die so you can retry a run.  If anyone can beat me they win an amazing prize*!

*this is a lie

There goes my secret: I slow down time to win.  Damn, now I'll have to start obeying the laws of physics on speedruns.

The best thing about this guide is: there's three of it!  Hooray!

Thank you Chaos Vegeto (or perhaps Captain Obvious would be more appropriate).

Competition Central / Possible Overall Rankings ideas
« on: April 24, 2006, 07:29:04 AM »
On a slightly random note, with the current points system, would it not be possible to see who had the lowest score overall?  Like a TSC Grand Champion *shot*

Obviously games with less competitors/stages would be weighted less so it wouldn't be reflective of people's different skills, but I reckon it'd be interesting anyway.

Gaming and Grazing / Would you play this game?
« on: March 16, 2006, 05:08:39 AM »
Okay, I'm probably going to be entering a game design competition this summer, and I have a concept. My question is: would you play it?

The game will be an action-adventure style game akin to Zelda, except that your character will advance in a non-linear manner as in an RPG and you can have an AI party with you. It's set in an epic fantasy-adventure world, predominantly within a city (that'd likely be as large as any in the GTA games).

Now the slightly different bit: it's trendy for games to have multiple endings depending on whether you're "good" or "evil", but I want to build a quest/dialogue engine that will be dependant on many factors: things like humour/seriousness, greed/selflessness, bravery/cowardice and so on. In essence, your character would have a well developed, constantly changing personality, and different paths through the game would depend on certain aspects of your personality (eg a serious character might not get a dialogue option to tell a joke).

So it's a bit like The Sims meets Zelda meets Neverwinter Nights. What I really want is to create a game world more immersive than anything anyone else has done, although I'm not sure that'll work Smile Anyway, any thoughts? Please don't say MMORPG, the world and his wife are making them at the moment and I want this to be unique!
