More fun will come

I am looking forward to tomorrow and at the same time I'm a little nervous because I've never done such a thing before. Today was annoying trying to edit some audio and near enough everyone talking and me barely able to hear my audio.

Lately we have decided still to keep it 2.5D, and adding load of killing moves, but we should be talking about the presentation we have to do next Friday. Well I need to introduce ourselves due to being the team leader and the accountant, but mostly the leader. Well other then continued talking about the game I still think we are heading in the right direction.

FNV is now completed

If you are wondering what FNV is it's Fallout New Vegas. Yep completed this shows how much free time I have. I think this game could of been better, such as the robots voice should of been kept the same other then getting new voices, the major thing that would make it better is to get rid of all the bugs, etc.

Well I now have time to think about the demo and we've decided that they are going to be 10 weapons over all and need 3 kills with each weapon. This could possibly be a bit of work but I'm sure it's gonna be worth while. Other then that we still need to discuss many other things but that can be sorted out when we next discuss

The Joy of depression

Tis nothing worst the a random depression that sneaks past and makes the one feel bad. Kind of how I'm feeling at the moment, but enough of that. Today I have done a little research into 2.5D game engine I found one call DxIce that supports 2D/2.5D/3D but you have to sign up to get it. I have also emailed the creators of "Blade Kitten" cus its the newest 2.5D that I know of. I only asked what the engige is called is and if its free or has to be brought. I am waiting for the reply, But I hate it when I'm not paying attention and get a email from Facebook, Newgrounds, or others. And I finally got an email back about the cost of advertising and it's the most basic answer ever and I qoute;


It could be from ten pounds to to millions of pounds depending on what the advertising budget is and what media the adverts will run on (posters, radio, TV, Google ads etc).

Thanks and regards,

Tristram Defries
Digital Communications"

But then again it depends how much the comapany wants the game to cover.

We have decided that our demo will not be 3D but 2.5D and make look a bit retro. I think this a good idea because;

A) This will knock some money off the accounting.
B) Makes it easier to program, art, etc
C) Less stressful.
D) More fun.

Still keeping the story and everything but adding a few retro touches like a health bar, timer points, etc

Is in love with The Big O soundtrack

People may know that I'm a bit of a fan boy when it comes to The Big O, This is true and recently I felt like listening to music and decided to put some on YouTube. After a while I thought of The Big O and I'm in awe of the complete AWESOMENESS of the music. I would like to see a game of The Big O or possibly the movie. If they did come out I would be rather happy. Most of the music is made by a piano and if I knew how to play them I would play them all the time. Putting orchestrated music in anime or games just lifts them up to a new level. Even though not many people has heard or seen The Big O. The music fits in so well and makes the viewer more involved.

I would like some music like this into a game possibly the demo, but it needs to be discussed. We've not talked much about music within the demo. This might be the topic of discussion on Monday, but more likely what going to happening in the demo. I'm guessing music will come later in the developing stage. We have been dealt a massive blow with our main weapon within the demo. I cannot think of many idea for the demo, sometimes I can think at the spur of the moment while listening to the other members. Soon we should be making a presentation which I'm not looking forward to but it MUST be done so I shall not falter.

Blog time

Right the college weeks has ended and now for time being by ones self. I continue to wait for the new Fallout but it wont be long now.

Today in lesson I got in contact with 3 game publishers asking how much advertising was. I asked Rising star, Capcom and 505 Games and waiting for a reply for them all. But I also edited the accounting again from getting it down by calculating how much would we save if we used low spec computers. All I can say it was a fair bit, Other then that I was grumpy while was looking up any other game publishers. Most were for MMO or something like a Facebook game. I wonder if we could use a social site as an advertiser. It could possibly work.

Yet another day

Yet another day stuck inside but at least today I've had a good walk to Bulhell, Aren't I the lucky one. But other then that Ive been playing Fallout 3 GotY. Nothing is more fun then shooting "ol' painless" into the head of some unsuspecting people/beasts in V.A.T.S and watching their cranium explode and looting the corpse for caps or ammo. I am playing Fallout 3 due to A) that its in my gaming pie (once forgot the L in pile) and B) that the new Fallout is coming out soon which I am looking forward to.

I do think I have been playing it a bit too much of late due me referring myself to Fawkes in my last blog. And now feeling in a slightly better mood then last time I wrote my blog. There are things are still upon my mind which still need to pondered about but they will come to me in due time.

About time

Finally I have reached level 70 on Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and has decided to give it up, It's nothing more then arses with grenades and shotguns these day and this is partly the reason that we must do part. Many a time I had killing shot and yet the enemy does not die. Nothing has ever has got me as angry as that and thus i will be saying goodbye to all the rage I spewed forth at my television. Here's an idea for Genius (BBC 2 I think) COD power, somehow tap into people anger and make the body shout and lob their controller and convert that into energy. If everybody did this. There would be free energy for 10,000 life times in one day and think of how much we could accomplish.

Enough of The Rage Game, lately I have been in an a foul/down mood due to a number of reasons these that I will keep to myself. But most of all that I keep getting the idea in my head that I am rather useless. In our group I have done the accounting and came up with some ideas. It seems like I'm not doing much at he moment. Thanks to all of them we have a possible game idea. They are working hard to get this idea off the ground. They all deserve a pat on the back so with all the detail that they are putting into the demo. This shows that they are dedicated and continuously pushing themselves forward.

It's been a long time.

It has been such a long time since I wrote something upon this blog, and now I am now going to keep this as updated as possible. Lately I have playing games within my pile such as Fallout 3 Game of the Year, Red Dead Redemption, Skies of Arcadia Legends, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and finally No More Heroes 1 & 2. But have occasionally I've played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. And last night found out that to my dismay that the only revolver in the game is far more inaccurate then it's handgun counter-part the Desert Eagle. But thinking of weapons shouldn't the revolver be more accurate if it had a longer barrel such as 6 inches due to the barrel being rifled which should put more spin onto the bullet which in the end make it more accurate.

Anyway enough about guns for the time being, I am currently looking out of the window to see a wonderful blue sky and I decide that I should stay in on a day like this, Oh the maddening thought. I have pondered that I still have too much free time on my hands, People say "live life to the fullest" and if anyone would ask me "What have you done with your life?" my only answer would be so far "Steering at TVs/monitors most of my life." I try to comprehend the amount of time that has slid by me while being a voyeur to a portal to another world which I cannot lose myself in. I now know how Fawkes feels trapped within 4 walls for an accursed amount of time. But all I do these days is play games and continue with my work from college.

Tis my attempt on 200 words.

Apon the many activates that I attend, many people would see as dull and tedious, but in the case of I, they amuse me, such activities include walking looking around at the scenery that is rarely seen by modern eyes. But after a day at a learning establishment an old friend got into contact with me to go for a walk, so I replied back with no haste and agreed to go on such venture with madam. We met up and started to walk through the thick wood that I have the pleasure to peruse around at my leisure. Apon exiting the wood we decided to walk even further. I knew of an old mansion that needs to be looked upon. After looking at the splendour we decide to walk further, we saw a lake which people like to fish at. After we entered upon another thick wood but this one I knew nothing about. We walked and walked into the wood with a worn out foot path beneath our souls of our feet. We saw wild life and flora which we miss these days we saw a hedge that looked easy to slip through and ended up in Hucknull.

LRU 2: Domination

This is an RPG that I used to play a lot when I was younger. But I stopped playing it after I completed. So I played it once again and all I did was fight monsters get money and experience. What can you buy more weapons, armor, potions, upgrades for you weapons, magic spells, elements for your sword attack, transformations that's about it. Very repetitive by pressing up in every red section to up to 3 times in one move. Kinda annoying to get money, say you just killed a level 20 snake and all you get is 15 gold for a LEVEL 20 SNAKE FOR CRYING OUT LOUD but you get 100+ exp and you have to pay 100 gold to upgrade you base weapon then 200, 300, 400 etc last is 900, just think how many fights you need to go through to get the last upgrade. There are 6 weapons so alot of money spent upgrading, the most expensive items is armor, the 4 uber armors cost 8000 gold each, you have to be playing the game 24/7 just to get 1 uber armor. so i've turned this little game log thing into a rant. Maybe cause i'm watching Charlie Brooker newswipe and kinda turn into him for a few mins while writing this. To whomever plays this game prepare to be bored by repetitive.

The P's & C's of Frantic 2

Frantic 2 is a vertical shooter flash game, Yes I'm doing mine about a flash game.

The P's

It has a good sound track to while playing and in the menu.

It is a quick game meaning it would be finished in a few mins so a teacher might not see it.

Rather an addicting game so you can keep playing it.

Power ups are plentiful and so is the money.

To be able to buy perks.

unlockable like new weapons and new ships.

Upgradeable weapons.

2 controller styles such as mouse and keyboard.

The C's

A little short saying that there are 3 or 4 levels per episode and there is 3 episodes.

Money system is kinda an arse you have to collect when everybody is shooting you.

Can confuse power ups and money as the enemy projectiles.

4 lives but you can keep them for a while if you know how to play.

That all I can think of at this moment.
