the wait for Super Mario Maker 2 is killing me. 

truly going to be the best game of all time ... 

I'm not lying, when I bought the first one for wii u the disc stayed in the system for over a year. That's all I played, lol. :crazy:

Amid Evil is now complete with all 7 episodes. I left off on Ep. 5 back in December. Might be time to jump back on.

And Ion Maiden is supposed to be finished any day now. The official 3D Realms site said Q2. But it's almost July. Hurry tf up Void Point.
Then again, I hope the lawsuit from Iron Maiden (really) didn't hamper their progress..

Mario maker level creating is damn near impossible on the switch without a stylus.

I loved Super Mario Maker on Wii U and yet I'm really not hyped for SMM2 on Switch. I don't know why, maybe it's because I clearly won't have the time to create levels as much as I want to ?

I'm trying the Japanese ver. of Castlevania III

had to use savestates on the last three levels but i beat it and immediately bought bloodstained. shame it plays really well but it looks awful. i take so many hits from not being able to differentiate enemy hitboxes and projectiles from the environment. maybe i'm just getting old

Do u have Curse of the Moon?  It's the better of the Bloodstained games imo.

Curse of the moon is a fun throwback and i'd probably recommend it to anyone looking for some castlevania flavoured nostalgia. But it also didn't hold my interest much. I found the visual style to be pretty lacking. A lot of the enemy designs just seemed either uninspired or just badly drawn and confusing to look at. Castlevania being so rooted in classic movie iconology goes a long way in easily identifying "oh, that's a werewolf man." "oh, that's a mummy." "oh, that's a fish man monster." and i just didn't get any of that from the bloodstained game. 

I've still never beaten Castlevania 1 and 3. So i'd much rather just replay one of those then return to Bloodstained i think.

(( having said that, i am keen to getting around to checking out the new Bloodstained SOTN game. i'm sure it's totally fine and fun to play through. i think finding the balance in difficulty in 80s/NES style videogames is just a harder thing to pull off maybe))

omg you can "Boo/Unlike" levels in Mario Maker 2. this will probably help go a long way in making the playing random levels go a lot smoother in the long run (i imagine???). also funny how much the tutorial repeats the idea of "Don't make shit levels".

Atari Flashback Classics on Switch has a lot of great retro 2600 titles, some I totally forgot about like Haunted House, etc.  A few titles are timeless; Pong, the Breakout games, Warlords, Asteroids, etc.  The arcade titles obviously look the best, and there are a few remakes I've never played before.  Two glaring omissions; they couldn't license Space Invaders, which was synonymous with Atari in the 70s, and they included Red Baron but not Battlezone?  Fail.  But 150 games for $40 is a pretty good steal, and including Space War, the first video game ever, is a little bit of gaming history.

You might want to wait if you were planning on getting the Switch version... loads of bugs and framerate issues

I thought it was already released to shit reviews? Or is there another game that looks identical?

 

Yes, Agony. That's the one. I always thought it was the same game.

      This is just a rant.
       
      I am so fucking sick of people dismissing Ae's post-Chiastic output ("where are the tunes?!") and recommending their early albums instead as "absolute masterpieces" with "soul" and "melody" and "blah blah blah".
       
      It just screams "I am a stupid, impatient, close-minded, casual, basic, stuck-in-the-past, not-capable-of-listening, knowing-nothing-about-music-melody-rhythm-and-structure, accidentally-bumped-into-IDM-when-I-was-young-and-now-I-am-old-and-tired-with-kids-in-need-of-easy-fun, rather-listen-to-boards-of-canada-because-deep-emotions-tunes-nature-and-geocatching-for-rare-eps, I-can't-hum-it-in-a-shower dumbass".
       
      I fucking hate those idiots (especially when they talk about melodies when they actually mean timbres...).
       
      I absolutely get they don't like the music (and that is perfectly fine, don't get me wrong) but their arguments and points are asking for a punch in their faces. So fucking stupid it actually hurts.

      So for the next day and a half, Humble Bundle has a cheap deal on some shitty games as usual, but more importantly this deal includes a copy of Gamemaker, which is a seemingly entry-level game making application. The bundle altogether is only $12 to get the Android Export portion which I'm guessing means you can publish your games on Android for like 10 zillion people to not see. Here's the link: https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly to the bundle.
       
      I watched a couple tutorial videos about the absolute basics, doesn't seem too crazy. The code is something I've never delved much into, though I can dabble and not fuck shit up too much (I can use Processing okay for a beginner, and I could usually do really simply HTML shit...)
       
      Anyway, is that actually a good deal? And would I be getting in over my head? Like, I'm thinking of it as a means of just trying my hand at getting some simple/weird game ideas down, not like making Call of Duty for Android or anything. And more so just to try my hand at some more advanced code-style project stuff. Obviously Gamemaker's whole appeal is that you don't need to know code, but I'm quite sure I'd have to use some to really get through to an end product 'finished' game.
       
      Has anyone used Gamemaker? Or, have any of you made little games yourselves? Advice, thoughts? I mean, yeah, it's only $12, but I'm just curious about any thoughts on that system or if I shouldn't waste my time unless I would really wanna go head first down that path of making games (which I don't).

      Anyone else been playing Elite: Dangerous recently? I've got it and have been enjoying it like hell. I've recently been playing around Alliance territory in my ultra-modified Viper Mk III destroying any wanted ships in my path. Although it's amazing, the game still feels a little empty, but I'm sure the developers will flesh it out more soon enough.

      And the winner of the poll is: BOSS BATTLE THEMES
       
      So, as with other WATMM music projects this is a call-out to all producers/composers/musicians on WATMM and beyond interested in contributing. The theme of this album is 'Video Game Boss Battle Themes' which are often characterized as being grandiose, foreboding, intense, etc: an ambient album this will NOT be (though you can do an ambient interpretation if you want)! Mini-Boss themes work as well: pretty much any confrontation with a powerful enemy where the music changes to suit the situation!
       
      There is such a tremendous pool of amazing material to cover and/or remix for this project! That being said I am not adverse to original compositions so long as they would sound suitable during a 'Boss Battle' of sorts. Also, feel free to submit as many tracks as you'd like!
       
      So, here are the important rules:
       
      1 - Due date for submitted tracks was November 1st, but I want to get more submissions in without people feeling too pressured so it's now JANUARY 15th, 2015!
      2 - Submit your completed track(s) to [email protected] using a file sharing service like WeTransfer, Mediafire, etc.
      3 - Submit your track(s) in a lossless format such as WAV or FLAC. Do NOT add a huge amount of compression (unless this is the effect you are trying to achieve) or otherwise attempt to master your track as all the tracks will be mastered for the album so as to have a more cohesive sound/volume. In your final mixdown please try to leave at 1-2dB of headroom.
      4 - Album will, at the very least, be a free release on Bandcamp. If there is sufficient interest I may look into a physical pressing, but we shall have to see how this goes.
       
      In the spirit of WATMM's Xmas comps all submissions will likely make it onto the final album unless I get a ridiculous # of them and then we may have to whittle the # down a tad to keep to a reasonable playtime.
      In order to avoid a situation in which everyone makes covers of the same track (e.g, a 15 track album of covers of SMB 3's Boom Boom Theme) feel free to post in this topic with regard to the theme you'd like to cover, that way people will not all chose the same ones hopefully.
       
      Alright, I am very excited to hear what you all come up with!
