  1. Huh? My post from earlier this week is gone... Odd. Well, anyway, I'll repost what it was. Basically, no one voted last month aside from me. Can't have a competition without votes, so I have no results to post. All you people submitting need to vote, or else there's little point in having the competition. I'm disappointed. It's a new year, and that means FREEFORM submissions are open. Please, submit AND vote in this one. Dates for the submission and voting periods are in the first post.
  2. Just completed this game on Owata Mode (aka 1-hit-death mode, aka dew-dew-dew-on-contact mode). It was rough at times, not going to lie. I think the most frustrating part was the boss of the first Dr. Mad stage. Infuriating. Took me a good hour to finally kill them. Dr. Mad himself was also tough, but mostly due just to figuring out the 2nd form's pattern and where the holes were. It's a satisfying feeling, finally beating it like that.
  3. Yeah, I was gonna ask whether the Mumble server was still around... Still, it's hard to say it'd be worth it. Right now we don't have very many regulars, and in my experience, it's only been worth using when there's about a half-dozen people on it or more. Any less and it doesn't really stay active. And then there's the separation of conversations thing. If we could get more people active in it, even if they're not playing Minecraft, I'd be all for it.
  4. The real world, probably. We're all getting older, getting into jobs... less time and energy to really get into community gaming all the time. We need something to rekindle the fire so more people make it something they feel the need to do. I'll help just as soon as I have the money to buy the games everyone's playing now.
  5. What's your thoughts on how good it is now that it's been a few months of playing it (I assume)?
  6. In my Music folder, there's a folder for Game Remixes. In there, albums go in Remix Albums, and individual OCR stuff goes in the OCR folder. Inside that, if there's enough mixes for the game(s), it gets its own folder with the name of that game or, if it's a part of a series, the name of the series (Mario games -> Mario folder, Chrono Trigger/Cross -> Chrono Series folder, etc.). The rest goes in the Misc folder.
  7. I'm liking this game quite a bit. I'm playing with a gamepad, which is a lot easier to manage, so take that into account. The difficulty seems about right. However, I haven't actually played the NES Rockman games, so I can't really compare it to them. Fun game, hope there's more to come.
  8. What problems? As far as I know, the only thing that needed fixing was replacing the glowstone the buttons were on, which I did maybe a little less than a week ago.
  9. The new terrain generator also came with new biome code, so now everything is based on that new code. I got off relatively easy in my area, just a few inconvenient spots of swamp.
  10. Thank you. I needed a good laugh tonight.
  11. Mentioned this to my mom and got told that I sound like a "radical leftist" for making a big deal about the issue. That hurt, in more ways than one...
  12. Voting period has begun! Got a bunch of last-minuters this time: Unnamed Limerick by Mirby Unnamed Poem by A-RoN Spellbound by evory Monochrome by AlmightyArceus (Lack of) Original Thought by Jax Mandrake Get your votes in by the end of the 30th. I mean it. You submitted, so vote, dagnabbit!
  13. Mojang-related: A trailer for the alpha of Mojang's new game, Cobalt, . I'm... tempted. We shall see once I have a few spare bucks.
  14. So what's the direct IP address of OCR? As I understand it, the bill only provides means of removing the DNS entry from your internet service, not removing the site itself, so getting to a site by the IP address would still work. I've taken to gathering up IP addresses for many of my frequented sites just in case. What's OCR's?
  15. No, but you only have a few days left to submit if you're going to. Submission ends on the 14th, and only because I don't want to see this competition wither and die; it should've ended on Nov. 30th. Regardless, we need two more submissions to even have a vote this round, and I'm too bogged down in job applications to even think about something to write. Not that I write poetry, anyway.
  16. Not like that hasn't already been enabled by most people since day one... What I'd like to see is larger amounts. They know the game is going to get modded to hell for years to come, which is what will give the game its longevity, and having that extra RAM available beyond just 4GB would help that along immensely.
  17. Is anyone actually planning on submitting this round, or should we move on to the next?
  18. Out of curiosity (since I likely won't be able to get the game for a while and I have a Wii to play it on), do you think it would play well on a Quad-core 2.83 GHz with a GeForce 9800 GTX? I know next to nothing about Dolphin and I'm not sure where to look to get a straight answer (main project page doesn't say much).
  19. Just wanted to say that I appreciate how you're supporting the Desert Bus for Hope charity. For the children!

  20. Oh god I just nostalgia'd. I see Gundam 00 on there. If you liked that, you may like Gundam Wing (another show in that Toonami commercial). Similar feel to Gundam 00 in that it's got more emphasis on action than most other Gundam series (still recommend those, as well), and the plots a quite similar, too. I personally feel that Wing and 00 weren't as strong as those other Gundam series, but I tend to focus less on action and more on the characters, so you can somewhat base your decisions regarding the various Gundam series on that. EDIT: If you're liking Bleach and One Piece, then shows like Trigun, Yu Yu Hakusho, Outlaw Star and Rurouni Kenshin are probably right up your alley.
  21. What have you watched? I can't remember if you've seen some of these or not. Anyway... Of the things in the image, I can personally vouch for Kenshin (up through the second season; the rest beyond that is... um... yeah.), Outlaw Star, Slayers, Gundam 08th MS Team, Black Lagoon, Azumanga Daioh, Suzumiya Haruhi, FLCL, and Big O. Slayers, Azumanga and Haruhi may not be everyone's cup of tea, but they're generally good. I've heard good things about Zeta Gundam, Ghost in the Shell, Trigun, Sword in the Stranger, and Ergo Proxy, but I haven't gotten around to watching them yet. As far as things not on that image, Yu Yu Hakusho is a classic Shonen anime that has many cliches from the time period but is quite well done. I hear Gundam 0080 is good, and I'm currently watching Gundam 0083, which so far is good (if a bit odd with pacing at times). Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 is a really good one. Finally, Bubblegum Crisis and Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040 are pretty good in my opinion, though they don't stand out in any particular way.
  22. Daniel and James are currently doing a Q&A on the Desert Bus for Hope charity stream. Check it out!
  23. Of course you aren't. Minecraft 1.0.0 has been officially released. If you're planning on playing on one of the servers here, though, don't update until the server has been updated; we'll tell you when that happens.
  24. It's because if you have more than two cores, the computer can essentially completely dedicate two cores to the game and use the rest for anything else running on the computer, including the OS. If you only have two cores, then some of at least one core will be taken up by those processes, leaving less for the game to use.
