Everything Else / Lego, Knex, Construx, oh my!
« on: September 13, 2009, 08:25:25 pm »
I was sitting at home bored one day, and started sifting through the back of my closet.  I stumbled upon nearly 300 pounds of building toys including Knex, Zoobs, Legos, Construx, Mega Blocks and Lincoln Logs.

The point of this thread will be simple:  Gather up all your old building toys and start making stuff!  Upload the pics and display the product of your boredom.  Don't make me feel like I'm the only one playing with toys!

Phew, now that I've made this I have something to do other than work, here, and DDO.

TV / Wipeout!

Don't know if anyone's been watching this show, but it's freakin hilarious.

The basic premise is an obstacle course, but they went up a notch.  The idea is to make sure there isn't a single perfect run.  Time is your only limit, if you fail you gotta keep on embarrassing yourself anyways.

Then you get the accompanyment of the two commentators, John Henson and John Anderson.  These guys spend the whole show mocking the contestants, giving them nicknames, and drawing on the screen to accentuate the constant stream of jokes.

Imagine Ninja Warrior, but in english, hosted by comedians, and making sure that the bad ones get as much screentime as possible.  For example, one regular event is the Sweeper, a giant foam stick that spins over a circle of ten foot high pedestals.  The contestants each have one pedestal to stand on and must jump over the sweeper arm as it passes or fall in the water.  Last six move on to the next round, but they keep going until everyone falls and the last person gets a bonus thousand dollars.  They even get to humiliate the winners.

Overall it's a great show.  If you haven't caught an episode yet, you should definitely see it.  It'll be worth your time.

Forum Games / Name the Biography of the Poster Above You!
« on: September 10, 2009, 12:04:10 pm »
Just as it sounds.  If someone would write a book about the above poster's life, what would it be called?

As no one's above me (or are they), I'll just have to be written about first.

PC Games / Dungeons & Dragons Online: Ebberon Unlimited
« on: September 04, 2009, 10:49:13 am »
For those of you who do not know, DDO: Stormreach has been redone with loads of new features and is now free to play.  Ebberon Unlimited does have a cash shop now, but each story arc you complete gives you the DDO store currency.  There is also a VIP subscription available which gives you store cash allowances as well as unlimited access to the normally pay/per/character prestige races and classes.  It's also worth noting that these are unlockable via PvP honor.

In any case, the came is set to go live in a few days (beta players and previous stormreach players are playing already) and it is DEFINITELY worth looking into, even more so considering that it's F2P

Storytelling and Roleplaying / Dreamworld OOC
« on: August 29, 2009, 11:52:48 am »
Ah well, did it in the wrong order.  In any case, this topic is for posting characters for my Dreamworld RP, found here.


For creating your character, use the following form:

Name:
Age:
Gender:
Appearance:
Fighting style/weapon of choice:
Other:

A short background, maybe a catchphrase, or some form of personality trait could go in the other category, or you can just leave it blank of course.  It is important to also note that although the dream has started, there is a constant stream of new dreamers entering the game and you may join up at any time.

Character list:
Thaze Thunderstaff (dndfreak)
Freddy Krueger (Kenobro)
Fenrir (Badger Man 22)

Storytelling and Roleplaying / The Dreamworld RP
« on: August 29, 2009, 11:44:52 am »
The concept: You are all denizens of the Dreamworld; a place where your willpower is the governing factor in all that occurs.  In the Dreamworld, anyone can do anything at any time.  Think of it like a magical version of the matrix.

The Dreamworld takes the form of just that: a dream.  It starts formless, and grows or expands as explored by those in the dream.  The average person take a trip here each night, only two separate dreams never intercept.  It's your jobs to find out why this case is different, and to return to consciousness before it turns into a nightmare.


First, Identify yourselves here.  Since this IS your dreams, you can take the form of, well, whatever you feel like.  Mind you, for the purpose of this RP let's keep it to something human.  You can do whatever you want, so there's always the option of turning into something else later.

My job?  I'll be keeping the narrative moving via my own character, named Thaze Thunderstaff.  Let's see... I'll make him 22 years old and give him a lightsaber.  Ooh, a lightsaber with a flamethrower on the bottom of the hilt.

Like I said, once this gets rolling anything goes.

Oh, one last thing:  Although you can do anything within the Dreamworld, you still lack the ability to get out of it.

Everything Else / Multimedia Fusion 2 and other Clickteam products
« on: August 03, 2009, 09:36:18 pm »
I was searching around for one of these topics and couldn't find one, so here it is...

For those of you who do not know, Multimedia Fusion, The Games Factory, and Klik n' Play are three product lines designed for game creation.  Now, I'm not talking the typical 2d crap that others like it make, this thing is used to make commercial games.  I use multiple scripting languages often, but rely on my MMF2 Dev edition for game creation.  Why?  Think of it like flash, but meant just for games.

The tool is an entire coding language in itself, but is much faster than typical methods.  Basically, You give it the psuedocode and it translates the whole thing into VB.  That one little trick is the gem that makes MMF perfect:  Even though the software already can do whatever you want it to, anyone with VB can make an 'extension' onto it, or create an object to be loaded into MMF.  It literally can do anything.

The original engine is made for 2d, yes.  However, I've seen the source code, there's even a guy out there who remade the entire original Wolfenstien 3D in TGF.  No matter what you want to make, it's there.

MMF also has a built in gfx editor and sprite creator, although it's also possible to import premade files.  MMF also comes with a huge library of premade objects and a large sound library, although you're better off using your own.  It can layer up to 33 sound files at once, and keep up to 10,000 objects onscreen while running through your infinite amount of code once every .002 seconds and maintain a constant framerate.  This thing is GOOD.

I recommend it to anybody, and if you ever played a game and thought "they should have made it like this" it's definitely worth checking out.  In fact, the program is also a great creator for presentations, like a more code-focused version of MS Powerpoint.

Does anyone else here use one of these programs?  Just curious.

PC Games / Wonder King
« on: July 18, 2009, 12:18:16 am »
Wonder King is this new NDoors mmo that looks kinda like Maple Story, except better.  It's in closed beta right now so you'll have to search around a bit for a key, but so far I kinda like it.  Anyways, here's a link:
http://wonderking.ndoorsgames.com/center/default.asp

What do you guys think?

I'll admit it's not the kind of mmo I usually play, but it's pretty cool.  It's pretty well polished for a closed beta too.

Community list as of 7/18:

dndfreak: Thaze
kidsoldier: repuS
Lippy: Lippy

Wow, that's a really pathetic list...

c'mon guys, get enough and at the legal level I'll start a GamingSteve guild :P

PC Games / s-CRY-ed anyone?
« on: April 19, 2009, 06:44:34 am »
I've been desperately searching to see if anyone knows of a scryed game.  I've looked for a long time trying to find one of these.  If anybody has one PLEASE let me know!  I've batted around the idea of doing it myself, but good luck to me getting the sprites.  I'd ask Kaizer to make them, but he's lazy, unreliable, and quite frankly I don't trust him enough.  If you're reading this, IN YOUR FACE!!!
