Okay, screw that other blog…

It’s just as dead there as it is here. And it requires a Google account, and for me to sign in every single time I go there, and it doesn’t have my archive of this blog. I could just go on MSN and click "My Space", instead. Tongue out
 
I am STILL gonna post here, because A: I can, B: Some people may still read this and find it funny, and C: Because I like to talk to myself sometimes. Tongue out¬†So ha. And besides, I can have some fun conversations with the dragon inside my head. No, really. Tongue out¬†He’s REAL!¬†You can tell when he’s talking. I’ll add asterisks to show you. Open-mouthed
 
I’m like a 6-year-old kid, aren’t I? Tongue out
*Yeah, but they don’t have cool things inside their heads. They just have¬†A voice. They don’t have dragons in their heads. Tongue out*
Aye, true. If you ARE a 6-year-old. and you’re reading this, then please tell me… HOW THE CRAP DID YOU MANAGE TO GET ON THE INTERNET?!? Surprised¬†Absolute genius, mate. Mum, Dad, GIVE IM A PEANUT! Open-mouthed
*Best… saying… EVER. Open-mouthed*
‘Tis.¬†Open-mouthed¬†Apart from the DJ button. Open-mouthed¬†Anyhoo!
 
Did everyone have a good Christmas? If yes, good. If no, Santa says sorry. Tongue out I had a good Xmas, and I got some pretty nice stuff!
 
Let’s see, got this remote controlled polystyrene plane that can only be used outside if you don’t want to break anything, and that won’t fly in a straight line or not stall, and can’t be flown in a light breeze…
I got a book which shows you how to draw some fantasy characters, the most interesting of which is a dragon, but I’m kinda hesitant to pick it up, because it has a 98% chance of saying and showing that it’s SO EASY, when in actual fact, it’s not.
Still on the subject of dragons, I (predictably) got two new dragon models, one of them is small and green, but I’ll be honest, he’s not that striking. The other one, though, wow! She’s beautiful! And yes, she is a¬†female, because she blatantly looks female. She’s different, because most other models show the power and force of a dragon, and show their destructive side by roaring fiercely, or having bones and skulls littered around their feet… but this one, no! She’s stood on a small rock in the middle of a lush field, smiling, and she looks so peaceful! I love her. Open-mouthed
What else… oh yes… I got some WEEK SOCKS! Ooooh yeah. Open-mouthed¬†So now, I can tell what day it is by looking at my foot! Well, okay, my ankle, but still… Tongue out
And for my main present, I got some driving lessons! So watch out y’all, MONGMASTER’S GONNA BE CRASHING SOON! Open-mouthed
 
That’s all I can think of, apart from the shower gel and sweets and stuff. Open-mouthed
 
Right, what else has been happening… oh yes, firstly, I quit WoW. Why? Because after reaching level 80, I realised that there isn’t a single thing that a sane person would want to do anymore. Questing is so easy, and so monotonous… it’s not¬†a challenge anymore. After hitting 80, you’re supposed to set your own game objectives… yet whatever I set mine to, I found it pointless. You can go through instances and get better gear to go through harder instances to get better gear… but there aren’t that many instances, and you REALLY must be bored to want to go through all the instances SEVERAL TIMES. If you ARE that bored, and you make it to Raid level, the groups you will find are stupid, slow, obnoxious, and not the slightest bit fun to play with. And if you want to go AGAINST other players in PvP, you have to have done ALL ^^THAT^^ before you even stand a chance, and even if you DO stand a chance, it’s all about luck and statistics, not skill. If you are a rogue, and you meet a warrior, you are (to put it simply) FUCKED. Likewise, if you’re a warrior, and you meet a spellcaster, you are fucked! You don’t even stand a chance against certain classes. AND all the people on your team are retarded and can’t take orders. You only need¬†5 or¬†10¬†people out of 40¬†to beat¬†the first¬†boss on some battleground, and we said that in chat. What happens? 35 people run into the boss room. Grrreat teamwork…
Then¬†there are the classes that always win. If you run into a paladin as any class other than a paladin, you LOSE, because they deal damage so fast, you can’t do anything about it. If you DO manage to get a Paladin down to low health, he will bubble, making him invincible, and they can cast any spells in that bubble, including healing spells. And by the time the bubble fades, they are back at full health, and they WILL own you, unless you are a hacker.
I wish I could have posted all of this into the box that asked "Why are you quitting World of Warcraft?", because it would have been SO MUCH FUN. Instead, the box limited me to this:
 

"After clearing all the 70-80 instances, there is NOTHING that a sane person would truly want to do anymore! Gearing for heroics is extremely boring, because it’s based on luck and the ability to persist going through the same boring area over and over again, gearing for raids is the same, during raids you get obnoxious people and idiots who can’t follow orders in the raid group, and PvP is MORE irritating than a Rubik’s Cube!

Oh, and please, PLEASE don’t mess up Diablo 3 by shoveling WoW stuff into it…"

If they ruin Diablo 3… I WILL hack into Blizzard’s servers and fuck up WoW¬†COMPLETELY. Diablo has ALWAYS been better than WoW. I don’t fully get it, there are about 50k people on BattleNet playing Warcraft III, StarCraft and Diablo II, while there are 11m players on WoW. WTF? GET OFF WOW AND PLAY DIABLO II FOR GOD’S SAKE! D2 is ALWAYS different, because two maps are never, EVER the same, and it is extremely rare you’ll ever run into the same Unique Monster twice in a row. Unless they’re Super-Unique Monsters, Sub-Bosses¬†or Act Bosses, then they appear in every act on any difficulty. AND it’s more fun, AND it’s less laggy, AND you have 20x the monsters of WoW charging at you at the same time, AND ALL the classes are overpowered, AND you can’t heal yourself in a duel by using anything but a potion, which takes time to work. Unless you use a Full Rejuvenation Potion, which are the shiz. Open-mouthed

Wonder if I can sell my WoW account… Open-mouthed¬†Would help me save up for the new computer case I want. Open-mouthed

WOW! I can, as well! Some site quoted me $98 for it! Surprised Not bad.

Oh, yes, the¬†new computer case. Well, the one I’ve got is very nice… but it’s not got a lot of room in there, unfortunately. Wires are all over the place, so that affects the airflow, and that affects the temperature of my CPU. It’s at 40 degrees now, which is fine, but If I want to upgrade my PC with a new graphics card, I’m gonna have to buy a Full Tower case to make sure everything’ll fit! Open-mouthed

Here’s the case I have in mind:

It looks like TEH SEX! Rodney Reynolds even rated it a 100% KICKASS PRODUCT! Open-mouthed¬†Thanks Rodney! (KICKASS! Hard drive, hard drive, hard drive, RAPTOR X! Hard drive…) It’s not just how it looks, either, there’s so much room that you can build a space shuttle in there! AND it can have up to SEVEN fans in there, that’s FIVE more than mine! And as it’s so big, I can arrange the wires better so I can have better airflow! That’s the reason for buying it, along with the fact that it’s so big that I can fit a ATI 4870HDX2 graphics card in there, which is the biggest and most powerful¬†graphics card in the world today. Open-mouthed

Anyhoo, what else… Oh yes!¬†On Xmas, Courier Wars was REBORN!! Open-mouthed

Courier Wars? Remember? Well, okay, probably not, but it was an awesome game in the making, where it was an all-out war to get the crate and deliver it to the base to earn credits. The thing is, it was extremely laggy, and had a huge amount of bugs that caused the game to crash. I HAVE FIXED THAT, and during a quarter-hour play test with two others, the game didn’t crash ONCE! We found a couple of bugs, though, if someone logged in while someone had the crate, they could steal it from them by picking it up from the crate pad again. That rendered the person¬†who originally¬†had the crate unable to pick up the crate until they¬†dropped their invisible crate. There was also a lag¬†bug¬†where two people could pick up the crate at the same time. We also found that an insane amount of star powerups appear in the top-left corner of the map, and that sometimes¬†your laser stops working and won’t fire until you fully¬†recharge your¬†energy. Not sure what caused that, but I’ve tried a few things, and all we have to do is hope it doesn’t happen again. Tongue out¬†The crate bugs were easily fixed, and I’m gonna fix the star powerup bug soon. Open-mouthed¬†Then I’ll try and sort out the bladdy lag issues, but other than that, it seems just fine! Open-mouthed¬†OWNAGE!

I’ll upload a copy here soon¬†that you can test if you want. You might catch me online at some points, as well! Open-mouthed

Anyhoo, I think that’s it… ya, that’s all that’s happened. Oh, apart from renting Sonic Unleashed. No, it doesn’t suck, it’s awesome. Don’t listen to reviewers, they have no sense of humour, and take everything seriously. Tongue out

Right, I’m off for now. See ya! Open-mouthed

Changed blogs!

Right, I’ve changed blogs, if any of you peoples that I know want to continue reading the awesomeness. Open-mouthed
 
 
And if I get no-one interested in that other blog, I might as well just give up. Tongue out
 
Oh, and by the way, FUCK WoW.¬†After hitting¬†80,¬†I’ve just realised what a pile of¬†shit it is again.

Zzzzz…

Okay, so the ULSG video is now on YouTube, awaiting some hits and people to comment on it, then I might make a developer blog for it.
 
As for this blog, well, it’s pretty much¬†safe to say that it’s¬†totally dead. So, goodbye everyone! Smile
 
PS: The music studio on GH4 is SHIT.

*tumbleweed*

… anyone there? Confused
 
I think it may be time for me to drop this blog and move on, maybe to a new one. Or, when I manage to get the new ULSG trail… no no, I’ll use a seperate blog for posting about that. Smile
 
Okay, what’s left to say… apart from that it’s nearly Christmas (woot! Open-mouthed) and that I made a new video of ULSG with the ULTIMATE FRUIT FRENZY and the Balls of Steel powerup in it, but I don’t see much point in uploading it here, cuz no-one’ll watch it. Tongue out¬†I’ll try my hand on YouTube, see if I can get any¬†people interested in ULSG. After all, that Tay Zonday guy managed to get about a zillion hits on his crappy song, and some people really like him. I like the song for one reason, cuz it’s stupid, hence it goes in ULSG! Tongue out
 
Right, I’m off. I may be back, or maybe not. Bye! Smile

You peeps on the net REALLY DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE MISSING!

Seriously! I mean, come on, I’ve just packed a LOAD of new features into ULSG today! It SHOULD be called "UESG", the Ultimate Epic Ship Game, but that means I would throw away it’s history of being lame! Yes, it started lame, but now it’s awesome. Open-mouthed¬†Annoyingly, I can’t find versions 5-9, which is a shame, cuz I was gonna do a little video about the history of ULSG as an unlockable. Sad¬†But don’t worreee!¬†I have V1, V2, V3, V4, V10, V11, V12, and of course, V13 to show off. Open-mouthed
 
Today, I added THIS:
 
 
OH YES, it is the ULTIMATE FRUIT FRENZY!! Open-mouthed¬†You can score up to a 5x multiplier in that, but um… that’s impossible, I can only get as high as a 4x. Tongue out¬†Which isn’t bad, only 400 trillion¬†points… Tongue out
 
It’s too awesome. And that cow that flies across the screen, that’s EXTRA RANDOMNESS to make the Ultimate Fruit Frenzy seem even MORE insane! Just look at this screenie that I managed to get!
 

That’s INSANE! I’ve never seen that much action in ULSG… EVER! Open-mouthed

Anyhoo, I’m gonna put an improved trailer on YouTube soon, see if I can get anyone else interested. Open-mouthed¬†That should be fun. Open-mouthed

Right, I’m off for now, but I’ll see yas later! Smile

WHOA, WHAT THE CRAP?!

MICROSOFT! You ACTUALLY updated the Spaces! And you’ve also edited it so that my name is now "F U"! WTF!
 
This is amazing… I thought that Microsoft didn’t even care about them. Tongue out¬†Then again, that’s probably a better idea, cuz JACK ALL people come on here… I don’t get why, this MUST be the most uber space on Windows Live Spaces. It’s not depressing, and it has LOADS of random crap on here, like ULSG and random videos I find on YouTube! You couldn’t happen to make this a featured space, could you, Microsoft? Wink
 
Anyway… after I’m done writing this, I’ll change my name back, and check out anything Microsoft have added. Open-mouthed
 
Right, so what I was going to say was… I FINALLY HAVE A NETHERDRAKE! Open-mouthed
 
 
Ooooooooh, yeah. Open-mouthed¬†Took a LOT of grinding… but heck,¬†just to be able to fly on¬†his back…¬†it¬†was worth every second. Open-mouthed
 
Anyway, I will be having great pleasure tomorrow, because I’m going to be gloating about my Netherdrake. Open-mouthed¬†Perhaps saying "Hey Ped, look what I got." and then landing on his head. Open-mouthedOpen-mouthed
 
(EDIT! HAHA! I removed that review of everyone’s game trailers. I didn’t mean that.¬†Tongue out I was being hyper-critical, and wasn’t looking at the entertainment scale.¬†Tongue out Jujitsu, Sock Puppets, Wac A Mole, Warhammer, Fish Game and Call Of Duty 4 were all still EPIC FAIL, cuz they were boring. ‘Specially Sock Puppets. The others were not THAT bad. Nightmare Forest was actually quite funny, I just couldn’t hear half of the dialogue through that crappy college projector. Legend of Zelda Rush was funny, again, when I could actually hear the dialogue. I still think it ended a bit weirdly though. Tongue out

Please don’t hate me. Tongue out)

 
Anyhoo, I’m off now. See ya later! Open-mouthed

I would like to announce…

…that ULSG ACTUALLY HAS A FANBASE! Open-mouthed
 
Ya, rly! Let me count people that like the game, excluding me, of course… let’s see… Aaron’s one… Paul’s two, Dean’s three, Lourie’s four… add the teachers and helpers in, that’s seven… seven people off the top of my head!
 
Well, it’s a start! Open-mouthed
 
It’s kind of a small phenomenon at college! Even though no-one can even get CLOSE to the score cap, and the highest 2 Player co-op score is about half a quadrillion… only a quarter of the way. But I blame the bug that we discovered that wouldn’t let you go over 999×999 multipliers. Tongue out¬†I am unbeatable in Duel Mode… when we’re playing fairly, not sticking me on 500 difficulty while my opponent’s on 0… Tongue out
 
So, it seems like ULSG is my main focus at the minute, cuz it’s so full of win, and a fair few people are interested in it. Open-mouthed¬†It’s hardly ever tedious to make, either, I find it quite fun! Open-mouthed¬†There’s still a lot to do for V13, I’ve gotta make the Lame Adventure Mode, for a start, and that’s gonna be massive. Probably not gameplay-wise, but coding wise, HOLY CRAP, it is gonna be big. Lots to do, and lots of confusion in store… Open-mouthed¬†I’ve also gotta make all the achievements for the challenges, cuz I’ve finished the Single Player achievements! Open-mouthed¬†Oh yes, all 20 of them. Even though I’ve already got a couple of ideas for more. Tongue out¬†Maximum multipliers (Mult-teasers), hitting the 999,999,999,999,999 point mark (The End…?)… still more to come, I bet. Open-mouthed¬†I also need to polish off Duel Mode, it’s NEARLY out of Alpha, just a couple of bugs to sort out and powerups to add, then I can start with the thorough Beta¬†testing! Open-mouthed¬†I also need to update Two Player, cuz that’s being a bit neglected cuz of Duel Mode, but it’ll be sorted. Open-mouthed¬†Finished the Combo System, which is extra-awesome… and I added a new powerup! It’s called… BALLS OF STEEL!! Open-mouthed¬†Oh yes. When you pick it up, Duke Nukem says "I’VE GOT BALLS OF STEEEEL!" and you get four spinning Balls of Steel around your ship, which deflect bullets and destroy enemies! Open-mouthed¬†AWESOME! Open-mouthed
 
Anyway, that’s my ULSG update. I’m gonna post a game trailer on YouTube at some point, cuz I’m THAT confident.¬†Open-mouthed¬†Who knows, maybe people will be interested in it? Open-mouthed
 
I’m off now, but I’ll see you alls later! Open-mouthed
