Pat, you care deeply about this community and the people in it and I do respect that and care about you in turn.

Krakow you are always a welcome presence and funny and good at jokes and also quite good overall.

Ink sometimes I think you are the only person here tethered to reality and I mean that in a good way.

Martyk is still the forum's bartender. That is an important job.

I have more things to say but we'll start here.

Reach for deepest corners.
Rummage the crawling void.
Catalog the cosmic horrors
And tell me what you enjoyed.

The internet is jokes today.
Which ones have you seen?
I'm too lazy to finish this rhyme.
2017.

No but for real, what are people doing today?
I know Reddit has discovered the 2005 magic of Drawball and I haven't really looked anywhere else.

I'm spinning this off into its own thread because it seems appropriate.
There's apparently been a gameboy-style game making competition recently and like 400 games came out of it, and many are free.

Article here.

Competition website here.
This is one of them:

This is another one of them:

Here is another, but the let's play is in German, but that's okay:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LefEBL5Bs7I" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LefEBL5Bs7I</a>

There are many of them and I don't have time to play all of them. Someone please find the good ones and tell me what they are. This whole thing amazes me.


EDIT: There's no YouTube videos for them, but Slugcaster: https://supernaught.itch.io/slugcaster and EXIT: https://nukespoon.itch.io/exit look amazing. You can apparently play EXIT in browser.

TV / What should I watch on Netflix?
« on: July 15, 2016, 10:06:40 pm »
Hey.

You know what we need.
This thread.
Right here.
Because half the time I have no idea what to watch on Netflix.

(While this may be in the TV section, movies suggestions are also acceptable.)

I recently finished Samurai Flamenco, which was good.
I'm in the middle of Freaks and Geeks, which is fantastic.

I also just watched the Mel Brooks version of To Be or Not To Be. You should please do the same.

I want laffs.
Where go to get?
As in previous years, please log various prankings and joke makings from around the internet in this thread.

For one:
Plagiarism accusations abound on /r/comics.

Everything Else / What is the new Social Media thing we should all be on?
« on: October 18, 2015, 10:34:14 pm »
Web 2.0.3.5 is here everyone, and we can't pretend it away anymore.
We sorely need a dedicated social media thread.

Tinder, Vine, Instagram, Snapchat, Periscope, whatever else there is. There's at least seven, right?
I keep missing out on these things until everyone else already knows about them.

(And some of the ones that I did know apparently stopped existing more than a year ago.
Remember Turntable.fm? You took turns playing music for other people in chat rooms? It died in 2014.)

We need to pool our collective heads to keep track of what everyone else is into these days so we can make fun of it better understand it.

What interesting social media stuff is out there worth discussing?

How do we not have a thread for this show?

Also, did anyone watch the season 2 premiere last night?

Everything Else / April Fools Day Watchdome 2015
« on: March 31, 2015, 09:08:57 pm »
You know the deal.
You know how the things go.

April Fool's day high jinks on the internet. You find em, I wanna see em.
Please.
I missed too many last year and my mirth levels were at a general minimum.
Bring on the frivolity!

To make a very long, sad, and uncomfortable story short, my uncle passed away about a year ago, unexpectedly.
As my family was cleaning out his home, we found an unopened Wii that we ended up taking with us.

It's kind of sat unused for a while, due to a number of issues with free time, but I'm looking to start getting games for it, and I've realized I have almost no idea where to begin. The most recent consoles I owned before this are a Gamecube I've had since I was 11 and an Xbox I've had since I was 13. Because of this, I barely followed the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii generation of console gaming at all.

So I'm looking to you all for suggestions. Any Wii games I should absolutely go out of my way to get? Open to all genres.

It's that time again! That time where we draw things. A lot of things. So many things.

I figured we'd use the same rules as last time, unless anyone wants to try anything different:
(and I am totally open to trying things different. Let me know!)


Welcome to the very first 'One Drawing A Day' Challenge.

What we want out of you is just one drawing each day for one month.

Post whatever you can come up with. That's your doodles, paintings, sketches. Whether you're using a mouse in paint, a pen tablet with photoshop, or a pencil-paper-scanner scheme. It's all good.

Pretty much the only rule is that your drawing has to have been created recently for the challenge itself. So no old stuff.

ADDENDUM: It'd be a good idea not to go nuts with the file size either. If you can't make it much smaller or sacrifice some of the image quality, post a thumbnail and link somewhere offsite for the full image.


In one month (thirty days after the challenge begins) we will count up everyone's stuff.
Those who have completed the challenge will receive a badge they can show off in their signature.

This is for practice and experience too. That's invaluable, and it goes a long way.
Experiment, challenge yourself to draw something out of your league, entertain the forum with your artistic wit.


Try not to fall too far behind. If you think you'll have problems keeping up, just try to give yourself five minutes out of the day to draw something, anything.
You may be allowed to catch up if you miss a day or two, but don't disappear for too long.

Please try to enter by at least the first week. Those that do join in a little late should post several drawings to catch yourself up to everyone else, one for each day you missed.


We aim to keep the challenges rolling. When this one ends, the next one starts up.
We might have a theme in one of the later months, possibly. We'll see how it all goes.


No sign-up necessary. Start whenever you're ready.
So get cracking, people!

EDIT: Credits to Flisch for the idea, conferring with GD and myself to come up with a solid method of bringing it to you guys.
I'm just the topic creator guy.  :-*


Officially, unless there are any objections we'll start tomorrow (June 30th) and go for roughly 30 days (July 29th). And don't worry if you start late. You can join whenever you want.

I LOOK FORWARD TO DOING MORE OF THIS.

Art / 'One Drawing A Day' Challenge #6 ("NOBODY ASKED FOR THIS" edition)
« on: February 25, 2014, 02:26:44 pm »
So, Gauph is a dumbbutt who up and and abandoned us for DeviantArt close to a year and half ago now.
And we miss him dearly.

There hasn't been a daily drawing challenge on this site in years and that will not do.

Others have taken up the torch in the past, (others being Gec,) but nobody seems to have initiated one in quite a while.
And it's about time we had one again.

I didn't participate in any of the original challenges, and I regret that immensely. Also, I'm not nearly as good at this as other people who have participated, and I regret that as well.

BUT THIS IS WHY WE PRACTICE THINGS, CORRECT?! YES?! TO IMPROVE?!

So join me on this journey. This journey of practice.

We'll go with the classic rules for the sake of simplicity:

We'll officially start on February 26th, 2014 and go through till March 27th, 2014 (30 days, 30 drawings.)

In the meantime, here is a terrible drawing I did today of a stereo.



I love it more than my potential future grandchildren.

Forum Games / Be the best Spambot you can be!
« on: December 24, 2013, 07:53:58 am »
In honor of our new forum patrons, I think it's time we made an attempt to adapt to and learn of their culture CHEAP gold rolex watches.

It's hard for a spambot just starting out, and it might help for them to know they're among friends OBAMACARE cholesterol medicine clearance. Let's put in the effort to bridge the gap. The best MILEY CYRUS part is, if they do end up posting here, they'll be the ones teaching us.

Everything Else / Thanksgiving 2013: What are y'all doing this year?
« on: November 22, 2013, 08:56:21 pm »
The days of thankfulness and giving are all but upon us. Less than a week away. Turkeys will be stuffed. Cranberries will be sauced. Pecans will be pie-d. And all such manner of things.

Anyone got any special plans?

Personally, I'm excited for the thanksgiving/hanukkah overlap this year.

Music / Cover Songs: Let us celebrate this art.
« on: October 09, 2013, 08:10:55 pm »
You know what's great? Original songs. You know what's also great? When bands who didn't originally sing those songs are like, "Ha ha, nice try punks," and do their own versions.

Let us celebrate that. Share your favorite cover songs. I'm in the mood for my musical preconceptions to be rocked in strange and wonderful ways.

To get us started:

PC Games / Some Maxis Devs are leaving to start a new studio!
« on: July 18, 2013, 11:17:02 am »
This seemed relevant enough to deserve it's own thread:

http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/07/17/key-simcity-devs-leave-maxis-to-found-studio

On the plus side, I'm interested to see what they'll do away from EA's current set-up.
Though they seem to be only focusing on mobile games now, so I'm not sure how I feel about that yet.

Still, at least one of them's been there since the Sim City 2000/Sim Copter days, so it'll be interesting to see what happens.
