Roboforge

Hi, I would like to show you a good download called Roboforge.

Roboforge is a game where you build robots to compete in online tournoments against other people. It closely resembles the veichle editor in spore (but the veichle editor doen't have AI).

In the Roboforge tournoments, you can win up to $10,000.

My latest robot called Catcher.

Although the Roboforge online servers were totally dead the last I checked, years ago, and the last site update was in 2003. I used to play with this game just for the hell of making bots and fighting them against each other. Its good, but setting up the AI can be a little frustrating, and learning to deal with the w***** (w8) of the bots, and getting a few decent attack patterns set up, takes a little bit of getting used to.

Still, I was getting bored recently. I think i'll re-download this.
For those of you downloading the free demo on their site, you wont have the ability to fight bots, or do much more than set attack patterns and build the bots themselves. Unless they finally made it free. Shame I lost all my old bots, some of them were really good. xP

Edit : Why is the word, for the number between seven and nine, STILL censored?

Eight is censored?

I used to play Roboforge. My favorite was this ridiculous robot that stood in one place and had massive arms with spinning spikes on them that branched out about 10m away from the chasis.

I always preferred bots that gave a good fight, and looked cool, rather than abstract cheapness machines. Just winning isnt always fun, but thats just the way I see things.

***** is censored?
Yeah, ***** is censored for me. I had this in another post before, too. Maybe its just uncapitalised that it censors it? *****.
Edit : Nope, guess not.

A wise Surface to Air Missile once said about marrying 9 year olds in Saudi Arabia "Its pretty hard to tell if a 9 year old is going to be hot when she grows up, kids change a lot, usually, seems like a bad system. That cute little nine year old you married could end being a fat, zitty teenager."

That's very strange because eight is not on the list of words to censor. I don't know how or why this could happen.

This is pretty fun. I went and viewed the hall of fame fights, and there was this one crazy robot. It started the fight as and anthroporphic robot, waving to the crowd. Then when the fight began it folded out into this huge monstrosity that literally transported its entire torso behind the opponent to attack. The tactic it used to win might have been kinda cheap, but it did it with such style I could forgive it :D

Sometimes, computers just dont like me :P
Edit : Tried again using IE instead of Opera.
Editedit : No such luck. Put this right next to the other odd hiccups my PCs tend to get, and it looks like I might need to call an exorcist...
