Printed and framed.

There are people who enjoy it. I think it's unsafe to say 'because I didn't like it, you won't' when there are also people like it.
Sorry, I know. I was kind of joking.

Skyroads.
It's kind of like 3D Sonic done right, disguised as a racing game. Or something. Anyway, it's awesome.

Maybe we should get a poll running with, say, five of these options.
Well, let's wait until the VGNG comp is completely finished. But I am all for starting another one sooner rather than later since I really want to get a chance to participate in one.

This looks like a Fable sort of game. Lots of promises, but whether they will actually materialize or not is another matter. Still, this looks a lot more feasible than Fable "you can buy everything and become emperor of the world" 2. I hope it does turn out well because if it does it could be a must buy.

I like the visual style a lot, and it seems like you have some good dialogue going on as well.

This guy should be locked up in an asylum and given ECT every day until he agrees to make a game rather than trash like that.
Well, not really, but you get what I mean. As a game this would have been incredible. As a movie pretending to be a game, it's really pathetic.
One thing I thought was unintentionally compelling was the phrase 'an animation for future generations'. Considering the way our entertainment industry is going, I wouldn't be surprised if this brand of strobing, shaking, intentionally-offending gore-porn is exactly what kids of the future will be into.

some stuff

By the way, I've been meaning to ask... is your user name a Donnie Darko reference?  From that asian chick who was always telling Donnie to "Chut up?"
Why yes, yes it is...

It is rather nice to meet someone else who likes your incredibly obscure favourite book/game/etc.

Oh, man I love Alan Moore's stuff a lot.

Watchmen is gold...can't wait to see how bad the movie will fuck it up :D

Yes, although I want to like the idea of a Watchmen movie, I can't see it going well in the hands of the director of 300.
And, you can say fuck here? Awesome.

Zombie Sniper Project was one I particularly liked.

I really like the movie game idea, though for maximum freedom, I think it should extend to any movie that doesn't have a game adaptation. That way, rather than just making joke games (i.e. "LOL! a game of Casablanca! LOL!") we could also choose to make movie games that really should be made (personally I would go for a Doctor Who point and click adventure, though I think it might already have been done back in the days of yore.)

The retro look is certainly not just nostalgia. I never had a SNES or NES. The first game I remember playing is Rayman 2. But I still like pixel art a great deal. I don't really know why. I guess, some things just look better pixellated i.e. Street Fighter.
3614  Developer / Design / Re: Standard button mapping? on: April 01, 2008, 05:26:38 AM
It's really a different standard for every console. For example, 360 games will invariably use the right trigger to shoot, whereas PS3 shooters will use the upper right shoulder button, despite having perfectly serviceable triggers in the same place as on the 360's controller.
Even though it's logical to determine what button does what by its position, I think in practice, developers usually decide by the name of the button. For example, the A button has always been the first button on Nintendo's controllers, used for jumping, accelerating and interacting. Then on the DS, B became the first button and A was placed to the right. But in DS games, A is still used for jumping, accelerating and so on.
If you're making a game for a certain controller, you should definitely put in some hours playing games with that controller to work out how it feels and where you want to map your buttons. Is that why you're asking or are you just curious?

Thanks for your help everyone Grin

What is a good graphics program to use that can draw at low resolution and scale up without blurring?

Photoshop.
Yes... in a perfect world, that's what I would choose. And by perfect world, I mean a world where I have a job Tongue
