  1. I call for the immediate termination of Zircon and demand he step down from the panel. ...I gots my reasons. >
  2. Thanks everybody! I'll try to sneak in some One Girl into Rage if I can. Or better yet, maybe I'll do what I've been doing for the past month or so and renovate the site and make some more goddamn music :/
  3. At the risk of somehow deluding the nature of the conversation at hand, gentlemen, let me ask you a pressing (yet absolutely poignant) question: Did you just fucking put baby in the corner?
  4. That's all well and good, but onbehalf of the Industry, allow me to say you're that .00001% of gamer that makes us rofl.
  5. I am greatly enjoying JoeFu's one-man crusade against Infinity Ward, particularly the part where nothing came of it.
  6. I always play a girl without fail. If her hair can be white, I do so. And I always name her Una.
  7. I'm happy for you, and Imma let you finish, but John "The Wingless" Burnett needs his own birthday thread. Kthkx
  8. A few people at work play this religiously. So I had one give me their 21-day free trial and have been at it for four days going on five. I still berate them for playing such a fucking stupid, prosaic, and laughably entertainment-less game. Having said that, please, can I hear your best Eve stories. The things that can *only* happen in EVE?
  9. posting this again, because the thread is moving too damn fast!! -- So the hospital where Michael died at was literally a few blocks away from my work. So I took a minute to go down there and take some pictures of what is, ostensibly, one of the more pivotal moments in entertainment. http://www.thewingless.com/06-25-09_1625.jpeg http://www.thewingless.com/06-25-09_1626.jpeg -- It wasn't quite as heavily populated as I would've thought. The hospital is right in the middle of UCLA, and even though only summer school is in, I would've though many more people would've been about. Instead, there was a seemingly endless stream of news vans down the street (a street that feels like it hits then dips below the horizon). on the small little steps of the hospital there were hundreds of people with their cameras. Not quite taking pictures insomuch as waiting. It was an atmosphere of extreme intent. Nothing quite a surreal as you would've expected for such an event. But strange, nonetheless.

  11. I have some pictures of the hospital. I'll post later. It's surreal and inherently, perfectly LA
  12. LA times has confirmed it. I'm within walking distance of the hospital. None of you will be able to profit from his death like I will. kbye http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/31552029/ns/entertainment-music/

    Star Trek

    The only things I didn't like -Nero is an intensely forgettable antagonist -There are some rather glaring plotholes, plot omissions, and flat-out parts of the story that are utterly forgotten over time -The most nonsensical UI design I have ever seen... but that's more a matter of professional pride Other than that, the hardcore trekkie in me was thoroughly satisfied... Although the timeline is going to splinter Trekkies into a full on Civil War. Believe that.
  15. Yeah but see, when he says POWER, you can raise your hand above your head and clench it into a fist and listen to that bass QUAKE DA EARF.
  16. I'm so glad somebody posted these guys. I love the megaman one to death "What I lack in speed I make up for in POWER"
  17. this N-word gets a billion replies on his shmup and I only get a million?! FUDGE THAT!!!
  18. Hello all! I'm working on a little flash shmup (oh and sidenote: that ad you see on OCR this month is another one of my games. Feel free to click and buy) and I'm doing what a lot of the big-boys in the Industry do: collect lots of data and redesign accordingly. So I have a working build and an online survey ready. For those of you who are interested, I'd love it if you played around with the build for a bit, then answer the very brief survey. It would help me immensely, and plus, you get to be part of the Game's Industry... tacitly! ------------------------------ Here is the working build (give it a few seconds) http://www.thewingless.com/allegiance/Changeling6.html And here is the online survey. http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=dx7GlYrmjPN_2fQnZEFB8pXg_3d_3d ------------------------------- Oh, and for those of you interested, here are some screens and mockups! http://www.thewingless.com/allegiance/mood4.jpg http://www.thewingless.com/allegiance/hud1a.jpg http://www.thewingless.com/allegiance/hud2.jpg http://www.thewingless.com/allegiance/enemy2.jpg http://www.thewingless.com/allegiance/enemy3.jpg http://www.thewingless.com/allegiance/enemy5.jpg http://www.thewingless.com/allegiance/enemy6.jpg THANKS!!
  19. Dudes, it's about as hardcore Starfox as one can get. I recognized it instantly Deduct 50 points if you didn't hear it the first time through!
  20. So while perusing games on Gametrailers, I looked at what I assumed was a relatively unknown game called Metal Rage. Much to my surprise, no less than twenty seconds in, I hear a VERY familiar and rather long effect from a completely different game. Check it out for yourself http://www.gametrailers.com/player/47523.html The effect starts at 0:20 Can you guess what the stolen sound effect is?!?!?!?
  21. I don't understand... how... how do I profit from this?! TELL ME!!!
  22. olawdie, wat is dat ad I sees ovah in da cor-nah!?
