Music / Personal Favorites (Recommend an Artist)
« on: February 08, 2009, 10:11:08 am »
Alright, this section is pretty dead, sadly, so I'm gonna try to do my part to help it out. The rules are simple: recommend one artist here, someone who may not be necessarily well known, but you really like. Giving a brief description would help, too.

I'll start: Andrew Bird

Really lovely lyrics, with an "intelligent" feel to it. Oh, and he whistles too; really well.

Music / Looking for Indy that is actually Good
« on: October 08, 2008, 05:51:47 am »
Yep, heres the deal: I love indy music. Dunno why, but it tops anything with a major record label, any time, any day, in my opinion. The problem is, it's indy, and impossible to browse for using normal means. Here's what I love to listen to:

1. Andrew Jackson Jihad (like, my favorite.)
2. The Cat Empire (less indy, I actually found an album)
3. Electric Six (awesome)
4. Gogol Bordello (coming to my home town!)
5. "Teardrop" by Massive Attack (I don't really like the rest)
6. Modest Mouse (again, less indy)
7. Streetlight Manifesto (like Cat Empire, more epic)
8. Tally Hall (good, weird music)


These are in alphabetical order, if nothing else.


Any suggestions?

Spore: Sporepedia Exchange / Mae's Marginally Inferior Creatures
« on: June 16, 2008, 06:31:12 am »

The Zergling.
Built for high charisma and slash, from the best of my abilities.



The Strider.
Again, from the best of my abilities.



The Assassin.
Sneaky as bejeezus and as lethal as a pair of scissors thrown at 9000 mph.



The Chariotman.
A pretty cool creature IMO. Dunno how to describe it.


So, yea. Comment, I guess.

PC Games / Crap, Nexon's games are getting good!
« on: June 09, 2008, 06:05:12 am »

Combat Arms is a *checks* MMOFPS with an aire of COD4, but it's free!!!


(Unfortunately, it's only in closed beta, so all I did was look at the mildly pretty video.)

Alright, first of all, allow me to justify the title:

Mabinogi: Name of the game.
The: English determiner.
Half Decent: As in, the game is quite enjoyable.
Nexon: Yes, it is made by the people who made Maple Story, but put that behind them- this has very little grind! (High experience quests move you right along.)
Pseudo-Runescape: The game is based on the same concept as the game we all know and mildly despise, at least to a point. However, this game manages it slightly better, with even more concepts to master (I'm a bard!) and better (mind you, not great, but you can identify facial features AND fingers!!!) graphics.
Extravaganza: I ended it with a bang.

Anyway, here's a link: mabinogi.nexon.net/

Pictures shall come later, of my poorly-clothed axe-wielding minstrel.

Oh, I forgot to mention, I'm on Ruari server, so join me there.

PC Games / EVE online (Now bigger and better than ever!)
« on: September 01, 2007, 05:03:26 pm »
Alright. I've checked (and double checked; EVE comes up with 300 pages of results (duh) and EVE online has 32 pages) and all I could find on this game is a Card game. So, here goes:


EVE online is a (not free, sorry, only a 14 day trial) massively multi player space MMORPG set in a different galaxy. Everyone starts out as a fairly open character (in this game, there are no classes, nor any levels), flying a small frigate. You can, from then, carve your way into the player-based economy, by either mining, fighting, crafting, or other professions (such as hacking, salvaging, archeology etc.). Quite a few of the stations on the outer rim of 0.0 (no police, free for all combat) are player owned, and epic battles come quickly and often in this wilderness. Also, the game is featuring constant updates, one of the next coming up being the ability to leave your ship and walk around stations.



My Battlecruiser; the Pride of Maeus (You can name your ships), currently docked in a station.


Another one of my cruisers, taking in the midst of a PvE battle (I won't post screenshots of PvP for security reasons on my location and alliance)


Anyway, if I get enough players, we could form a corporation, maybe eventually build our own station.

Spore: Creation Corner / The Bards
« on: July 28, 2007, 07:55:38 pm »
The Long Awaited ( ;)) Bards have finally arrived!



Domestic to their home planet of New Edonae, the Bards have adapted to the thick and hazy atmosphere by not adapting sight, nor smell, but sound. The Bards have, as their name indicates, became intricately adapted to the vibrations in the air of their dense atmosphere. They communicate not by normal methods, but by the vibration and air blow through the membranes of the thick, hollow spines on their thorax. Although they have eyes, they are very weak, picking up only black and white. There are three holes in their externalized skull-mask, which is the only skeletal structure external to the skin.

The first set of holes (the top one in the picture) indicates their sense of smell, which, although weak, helps to transport all necessary materials throughout the body. The second set (outmost, also the smallest) is their primary inhaling node, which brings gases into their system which also aid the circulatory system. The innermost hole is used to consume food, utilizing spine-like hairs that prick and break down food into digestible portions, within the hole.

Their fingers and toes are also a strange adaptation. They can easily retract into the thick skin of the appendage, forming a club-like limb that is used for self defense. The toes (as well as their reproduction apparatus) can also do likewise, but for what purpose is unknown for now.

The holes along the spine and abdomen are the "ears" of the creatures. They vibrate and trigger neural reactions which are then sent to the brain.

The abdomen itself is an interesting feature, where the secondary hub of the creature is located. The heart, a small secondary brain specializing mainly in analysis, as well as a massive air sac and hole-riddled bone, which amplifies this creature's capability to create noise, which are what powers this creature's capability to create the massively powerful noises that is it capable of.

Their spinal structure (picture coming soon, hold on) is also unique, utilising only 3 major bones: the skull, the spinal node (a unique bone that is capable of sliding up and down the spinal cord, thus extending or compacting the body), and the air sac bone, which is again riddled with holes and canals specifically designed to create (with ease) the large amount of highly complex noises in their language.

PC Games / Chore Wars- Making Amazingly Lame Quests For Eachother
« on: July 23, 2007, 07:45:07 am »
The game's called Chore Wars. Lets get that out of the way. Also, items don't do anything. They just make impressive trophies. However, this game allows you to create your own quests for you and others in your party to epically (more or less) undertake, for the phat lewt that you also made (yes, I've already added the Rocket Propelled Chainsaw, for those who ask). You also create you own monsters, and characters. The party I made is "GamingSteve". Anyway, if you want to join, go to this URL: http://www.chorewars.com/index.php, create an account, login, and add this party code: 65f97c021868.
Then, create and adventure away! (yay!!?)

I'll even create a screenshot:

and another:


Sorry for the low rez.

EDIT: If anyone actually cares about this topic, the server is currently down on the game. Sorry 'bout that.

Spore: Creation Corner / The Desert Praetorian
« on: March 10, 2007, 07:32:00 am »
Hey peoples, I'm new to the forum, and really interested in Spore, so i decided to show you a few pictures that I sketched, along with some background.

Unevolved, Using scythe-like claws and hooves to take down it's prey.


Fully Evolved, Losing its hooves and gaining hand-like claws.


The Desert Praetorian is a small reptilian creature that dwells in the vast expanse of desert on it's home planet, Praet. It is primarily an egg eater, but also acts as a swarm creature, attacking mid-to-large sized creatures throughout it's planet. They are skilled archers, firing off arrowheads with fragments of their own tusk, as well as any other hard substance they can get their pointy little hands on.

The Praetorians senses are especially keen, being able to hear from hypersensitive holes on the side of their head, with also act as basic nostrils. They also have very weak muscles in their back toe, allowing them to pick up vibrations in the ground. This gives them a way to coordinate hunts.

Their skin is both hypersensitive and hyper adaptive. For example, if a creature falls into water with high chlorine, the top layer of skin falls off, letting a new flesh of different mix of cells take it's place, which is completely immune to chlorine. Also, if an object is slowly pushed into the flesh, the skin will consume the object, thus allowing Praetorians to give themselves extra "horns" with rock and bone. However, this should not be overestimated, because anything moving too fast will pierce the skin like paper. This is why they commonly wear untanned hides as armor. I'll think about showing its full process of evolution if you guys like it.
Also: The only bipedal hoofed predator in existence.

Note: Sorry it's huge. I'm horrid with these kinds of things.
