    Aye, well, I had some help with the music (as credited). Mushrooms! Eat em'
  2. Plug your shit

    Hello there everybody, In my spare time, I've been working on an HTML5 roguelike/rpg game called Wayward. Today I released Wayward Alpha 1.1. It's still very early in development and lots of things are seemingly missing, but it's turning into more of a game with each release. It's kind of like a mash-up of Dwarf Fortress, Minecraft, and Ultima Online. Except, don't expect anything that good, yet, haha. Try it out here: http://www.unlok.ca/wayward/ See controls and more information here: http://roguebasin.com/index.php/Wayward
  3. Tribes: Ascend

    I've been pretty much luke warm with this one until I seen the gameplay trailer a couple days ago. I played the original very briefly, but after seeing the openess, speed and timed shooting, i'm really surprised this really hasn't been how first person shooters eventually went. I guess it's similar to Halo in terms of landscape, but gameplay wise, most shooters you are a static grunt on the ground. This takes me back to the Quake 3 and Half-Life Deathmatch days of speed and precision and I love it. I'm in! Video in question: wAwt-hMNFlw
  4. PETA are sick @#$%ers (Mario kills Tanookis)

    Mario must be using a pretty huge frog to be able to squeeze his body inside of it. Looks like the video was banned from YouTube. Good job flaggers I actually just beat the flash game. %#$% YOU MARIO! THIS SKIN BELONGS ON ANIMALS! PETA: Trolls gonna troll.
  5. Anyone got into Glitch Beta yet?

    I played it a bit more, as in, a lot more and discovered that my main points were pretty much spot on. That doesn't stop me from playing it though. The gameplay is so rewarding. Every minute you are getting a weird quest, a randomized rare item, getting resources, an auction that you started has sold (auctions are amazing by the way), getting an achievement, finishing a quest. It's like a sensory overload, but I guess that's what they need to do to get players from realizing that it's just a clicky-click-click game. That may not be a bad thing, because overall, this feels more enjoyable than a lot of full-scale MMOs that I have tried recently. The quirkiness and oddness of it is definitely playing in it's favour as well. I doubt it will be anything other than fleeting come a week or two, but the aspect of skills keeps you coming back for more even when inactive (strategic email notifications).
  6. Anyone got into Glitch Beta yet?

    It's definitely quirky and weird. That's kind of what it is banking on. It does seem limiting in some ways from what I've played so far... limiting gameplay wise I mean. Obviously not a direct "cow clicker" game, but in the same school of thought. I'm glad it's not forcibly tied into Facebook directly. Here's me: http://www.glitch.com/profiles/PHFVG1UTQ2D2GCS/
  7. In which they will force you to sign up with Origin to install? I forsee this as being the way they are going to handle this. Can anybody confirm?
  8. VVVVVV 2.0!

    Just finished it with 12/20 trinkets, but that also includes the keyboard smashing one. I just couldn't let it go. Took me about 1 hour and 500 deaths... ish. I found the end pretty tough as well. In the end I had 1200 deaths. Not sure if I want to go through again to get the trinkets, I don't even know where I missed any (considering the whole map is visible). Great game, great atmosphere (C64-esque), and great soundtrack.
  9. Dungeons of Dredmor

    This is definitely interesting. I'm not sure if I will actually pick it up or not yet, but considering I am working on a roguelike game, and this is another modern roguelike, I may have to for "research" reasons, haha. There seems to be some genuinely cool/unique mechanics going on. The strange thing I am finding about the visuals; although they are great and cool looking. They don't seem smooth, but this is inherently because it's a turn based game. It makes it appear very rough and harsh for people not understanding the underlining mechanics of the genre. It seems like if they want to have a fully animated game, they should have added some type of animation system where each turn transition would be animated, so it doesn't look so disconnected for the roguelike-unfamiliar player that this game hopes to attract.
  10. The sad sad tale of Tim Langdell

    Ugh... I thought that was a joke at first.
  11. Nintendo 3DS

    Also this: LDBn3-VgEIM I'm surprised at how candid this looks. It doesn't seem too forced, which is good. Nintendo is weird.
  12. Nintendo 3DS

    Wow, I just found out about this holding start and select thing on the game booting up trick. Is this new? Why did nobody know about this after launch? This even works for DS games! Sweet! Also, about the Pokedex 3D thing. So really, they modeled all these Pokemon in 3D, with their actions and animations? Is this all 500-ish of them? Or just the new 150? And released it for free? You just know there's going to be a 3D Pokemon game coming out. They spent too much time on these "free" assets.
  13. Yoshi's Cookie Eastern Conference Finals

    I'm so happy and depressed (at the same time) that this exists. How is this a thing?
  14. The Nintendo Wii U is Great Thread

    Two words: Horsebag II
  15. What cross-platform third-person or first person game this gen doesn't look low-poly? It's been this way for years.
  16. Capsized

    Looks right up my alley. Unfortunately, the amount of times I have been burned buying indie titles as stand-alones, months before an indie pack or humble bundle came out is too high. I will have to wait out of fiscal resposibility
  17. Sony Shitshow

    With the hash, they have to dictionary/brute attack everything; however, since they have unlimited time, they could potentially find out the passwords; also however though, you are required to change the password on PSN now. That won't stupid people from going from "password" to "password1" or something like that though. There's 70 million people and changes are, not all of them are smart. Having said that, you should be 100% safe as long as you change your password to another non-dictionary gibberish password.
  18. (IGN.com)

    That can be my next tweet just predicted the best game concept ever: "I've bought this game? Peter Molyneux, Hideo Kojima, & Steven Spielberg had a mailbox. -IGN."
  19. Nintendo 3DS

    That sucks because I am coming up to Calgary this weekend and was going to try to score some at the mall or something. If Medicine Hat and now Calgary doesn't have the density for StreetPass, where the hell do you need to live to have this thing be useful in any capacity?
  20. Sony Shitshow

    I think they just worded it terribly. As I said in my "technical" blurb, they can't store the security code, but they have to ask for it on the first purchase you make. So basically, my assumptions have all been correct so far. The CC's were encrypted, the CVC were not stored, the passwords were encrypted (but the hackers still got the encrypted data to reverse at will).
  21. Sony Shitshow

    It's hard to say. I shouldn't have been so sure either with my statements, my statements implied Sony was complying, legally speaking. According to this log and conversation, they weren't. If CC information is being past like is shown in the conversation, not only are PSN users screwed, but technically, everybody would have the right to sue Sony, every single person that gave them CC information. You are not allowed to store (or pass) unencrypted CC information, it's illegal in all developed countries.
  22. Sony Shitshow

    *EDIT* Wrote this before seeing above 2 posts. Where is it being reported that the passwords and CC were stored as plain text? Coming from a tech perspective here: Your password is encrypted (why wouldn't it be?) Your CC is encrypted (legally has to be, there's standards for this) Your security key (for Visa) users is not allowed to be stored on Sony's end (legally can't be), so that is safe - the reason you don't have to enter this each time is because Sony talks (not literally) with the CC company to allow direct transactions. That being said, if they can crack your password somehow, if for some reason they are using a terrible encryption, which again, there's no reason for them to be, they can make purchases on your account. They can't steal your CC Unless of course the hackers got access to the encryption methods and their "salt" and are reverse engineering everybody's passwords and CC numbers via their own method. I doubt this scenario, but again, would be nice to hear something solid from Sony themselves.
  23. Sony Shitshow

    A lot of bad things have happened in this generation for Sony. PS3 gets hacked, PSN goes down/comprimised, PSPGo, Poor PS3 sales, Poor PSP sales, selling consoles at a huge loss and with the mother-ship leaking money like a sieve, they are not in good waters.
  24. Portal 2

    From what I am gathering here, I should of looked harder for easter eggs/hidden sections. The only 'hidden' thing I found was the .
  25. I should of clarified further, aesthetically and gameplay-element wise it's the same old MK humor. You are right though, this is the most seriously an MK has been in terms of tournament/competitive gameplay since UMK3 (after playing in some online matches). By the way, anybody else find it very lengthy to find an opponent online? Even after that, the gameplay is laggy? I'm on XBOX 360. Maybe it's just Canada.
