  1. My little project

    This concept reminds me of a sort of forum game I used to play with some people on the official Dreamcast forum back when there was such a thing. We called it The Running Saga. It was an ongoing story with multiple writers in which each writer was a character in the story. It started with the first writer introducing themself as a character and creating the initial conflict, then every subsequent writer introducing themselves and advancing the plot with the other characters. I don't think anyone would actually want to read the finished product, but it sure was fun to work on.
  2. Mad Catz Cyborg Rat

    Is it just me or do they look just a bit like the Bat-mobile from the latest Bat-movies
  3. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

    What's funny is if you replay you can switch Drake's model to the 400 pound 'Doughnut Drake', and it suddenly makes a lot more sense why every platform collapses as soon as you step on top of it.

    I can't deny that Top Gear is good entertainment, its just that things like the America episode, and the one with the camper strain credulity to the point where I have difficulty suspending my disbelief. It seems like the closest thing you'd have to rednecks in London would be soccer hooligans, but I don't think any American could be persuaded to learn enough about soccer to figure out how to enrage those guys.

    Oh come on now, you don't think that America episode was really real do you. I thought they were legit before, but when redneck gangs piled in pickups are just summoned out of the ether, I have to call bullshit.
  6. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

    Clearly you did play on easy, because on anything else that boss is a real long rough slog.
  7. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

    At this point I think that is the Uncharted series's greatest weakness. These games need a catchy theme. So much of these games are like Indiana Jones, why can't it have a theme like him?
  8. Wizaaaaaards!!

    Your instincts are right Rodi, both the setting and the main character were directly inspired by Brutal Legend. Hilde's design was originally based off of Lita.
  9. Wizaaaaaards!!

    I just completed making a comic that just so happens to be about wizards AND Christmas, so I thought this would be the perfect place and time to show it off. If you liked that there are more comics like that one on my site:
  10. Wizaaaaaards!!

    Well obviously you're a wizard, which is an unfair advantage (13/16)
  11. I've gotten through the first two dungeons, and I love the dungeons but the train is like desert bus. It's long and boring and I wish I could leave the game to finish itself but evil trains and snowmen keep getting in the way. Also I don't like being able to equip only one item at a time. it makes comboing them a real laborious task. I don't remember whether or not this was also an issue with Phantom Hourglass, but for some reason here it's particularly noticeable.
  12. PixelJunk Shooter!

    I hate when that happens, you're like two thirds through a level and then BAM some guy some guy comes out of nowhere spewing magma and sends you right back to the start. It wouldn't be hard at all except that there was no way to see the guy until he pops into existence two inches in front of you.
  13. PixelJunk Shooter!

    I hate Hate HATE that guy. Everything else about that game is about cool interactions of physics objects, but that guy is just boring and long. Easily the worst part of the game.
  14. PixelJunk Shooter!

    I love the mechanics of this game, the way one element of the environment can react with another and another, this is what physics in games should be all about. My one gripe is that too often the game comes out and ambushes you with some deadly substance suddenly spilling from off screen, or a boss pulling out an insta-kill move late in the already too long boss fights. After all was said and done this is a game that really left me wanting more. As far as I'm concerned they can't continue this series soon enough.

    It may have been pedantic, but I didn't know Auto-Tune was a piece of software, and now I do. Knowledge is power!
  16. Other podcasts

    I recently started listening to Tweet Me Harder, it's a comedy in which listeners use twitter to send in comments or questions during the recording. I've started listening from the beginning and am currently 13 out of 27 episodes deep, highlights include Garfield's subconcious desire to be cooked alive, a discussion of how submarines apply to time travel, and a couple of raps about simple machines.

    I'll give you Ghost in the Shell, but Eva is a master's thesis on how animes use constant existential navel-gazing to ruin perfectly good shows about giant robots. And if you're going to be talking about anime how can you leave out the one in your avatar? Mushi-shi is an excellent show, and it's available in its entirety for free on FUNimation's site.
  18. Other podcasts

    After going through the Hardcore History podcast I tried Dan Carlin's other podcast; Common Sense with Dan Carlin, It's like Hardcore History but about politics and current events. I found it quite enjoyable. However whether you like it will probably depend on your political viewpoint, and since Carlin's politics bypass the typical right/left divide I have no easy means of summing up what his opinion is. If you're interested in politics give it a listen, you may not like what you hear but at least it'll be interesting.
  19. Movie/TV recommendations

    Well you're right about that. We even have a show called Ugly Betty starring a woman who is quite attractive in real life.
  20. Cool music to impress my friends

    Well if we're posting videos there's no way I cannot share this. XGjO9d211VQ
  21. Movie/TV recommendations

    No, that comes over as insulting, which is pretty much how I intended it. But it's not only me that feels this way, try showing up to an interview (for something other than life guard) in flip flops and you'll see what I mean. Nope. American

    There's being fat and there's being a slob. You should never leave the house without a shirt that covers your entire gut, even if you have to knock out a wall to do so.
  23. Movie/TV recommendations

    It probably helps that in TV and movies ugly is still pretty good looking.
