Natural Disasters in General
Warrior

I lived in the panhandle of Florida (pretty much literally right on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico) and even now I only live about 100 miles north of there, so there are near-constant streams of hurricanes at times. In addition, even though I now take slightly less damage from hurricanes, I have a heightened danger of tornadoes; for those of you who are familiar with it, Enterprise is only about half an hour's drive away. It also storms a lot during the late spring and early summer months, but I think pretty much the entire power grid has been replaced due to lightning damage since I got here, so danger from that is minimal unless I go outside. There was also a massive wildfire burning somewhere nearby in Florida for a while. I'm not sure if that's still going on or not.

It's amazing I can be so blasé about that all the time and yet be afraid of knife murderers and poisonous bugs sneaking into my house and waiting for me. Do animals count as natural disasters?

Toshiba Games... in General

I discovered Spiderweb when Exile: Escape From the Pit first appeared on a MacAddict disc around 1995 or '96.

Anyway, Toshiba is a legitimate electronics company, so this isn't some group of pirate resellers or something. I guess they're finally offering some kind of direct-software service, too. Hmm, I wonder what the benefits of offering games through something like Gametap would be...

Hmm. I do all of my image editing in The GIMP, so I checked that, but I do my linework in the tablet-friendly OpenCanvas 1.1, which is also the only version to support network use (can you call it Netplay?). Sometimes I also start from a pencil sketch, but even then I use OC if I decide to retrace it. I can use either OC or GIMP to do what little I know of coloring, though. =^.^=;

In summation: GIMP and Photoshop are good for heavy-duty editing and OC easily produces anything from soft, smooth lines to hard and solid ones and lets you show off or do it with a friend! But as far as I'm aware OC 1.1 has no vector pen tools, so it's up to you which is best for the job.

You could work gears in if you went with some kind of mechanical backpack or as a steampunk cyborg. As for the headgear, were you thinking that the goggles would be a seperate piece from whatever else might be included?

Maybe a welding mask...

I played a few sessions of D&D3 via IRC a long time ago. They didn't really go anywhere, but I am an avid reader of rules and settings. So far I think my favorites are point-buy systems. I've also played the video game adapations of Shadowrun and a few D&D Gold Box games, but honestly I don't really like Shadowrun's concept of essence loss with cybernetics. If I ever played it or anything similar, I'd love to ignore that rule and play a Decker who used magic inside the 'net.

What's the general feel of your setting, exactly?

The giant robot thing is serious. Haven't you heard of the Landwalker? They're already part of the way there.

How are you supposed to answer this question, though? The US already has an established infrastructure, but China's isn't exactly brand-new either, and both are ambitious. Many operations aren't revealed to the public. (I'm not just trying to shoot down the debate before it starts - if you have a way to figure this out, tell me.)

Right now mine is Sociology, but that's a temporary measure because this campus doesn't offer the major I really want, or rather the major for which some of the classes I'd be most interested in are required and which is most relevant to my chosen pursuit - art. When I transfer I'll change it to something else, either arts or a hard science.

I've been reading Thuryl's Let's Play Phantasy Star! semi-novelization thread. I actually really enjoy it and the format is conducive to good storytelling: there's a screenshot or three and then Thuryl expands on the situation, often making it up from scratch because the game has an absolute bare-bones plot or in the case of certain memorable fights. I'll link to it if I get his permission. Yep, got it. Thanks! =^.^=

I'll play anything, at least as far as genre goes. My least-played genre are probably sports games, which I'll usually only play if I know they're exceedingly, laughably bad, and survival-horror, because I don't like excessive gore. My most-played would have to be RPGs and platformer/exploration-type games, like Metroid, Castlevania, and even Sonic-style stuff, as well as Zelda.

I just finished out my first semester of actual college classes on Thursday the 3rd, actually. I think I'll be getting something like three As and a B.

Finally, all that stress just from having to go there is relieved. =x.x= I can focus on what I really want to do for a while.

EDIT: Turns out it's three As and two Bs. I got a B in Western Civilization, but forgot Physical Science counts as two grades due to the lab. This brings me to an even 3.5. =^.^=

Learn how it's done. in General

(1) What's your main goal in life?
I want to be able to do the things I enjoy and just go live with my friends somewhere. Also, it would be great if I could inspire someone to create something really neat. Teleportation would be nice, too.

(2) If you won a million dollars, what would be your first thought?
"...huh?"

(3) When you are mad; do you usually stay angry or do you yell to release the anger?
I don't really release it, I just let it fizzle out on its own. Sometimes I'll turn it into a humorous story if that's possible.

(4) Tell us an anecdote of anything that happened to you today.
I'm finally free from essays for the rest of this semester. That's pretty much it for that one event.

(5) What's your current Philosophy on life?
Look at the future. Don't idolize the past, and just try to get better at everything and enjoy yourself. Learning is fun.

(6) If you created a deadly disease, what would you call it?
Vanheim. Or von Karma's Disease. I'm just making stuff up.

(7) What should you be doing right now?
Sketching.

(8) If this were Southpark, what character do you think you'd be?
Sir Not Appearing In This Film, probably. =^.^= I have never really watched South Park.

(9) What occupations you wanted to be when you were a kid ?
This goes back a painfully long way, but first it was a scientist, then a computer programmer. Then I basically became sort of listless in my early teen years until I was finally both inspired and self-motivated to become an artist. I haven't entirely given up on game design either, though.

(10) What happened to those dreams?
I'm executing at least two out of three right now, actually (the artist and science ones, and hopefully I'll get to make at least a simple game someday).

(11) Describe the last dream you can remember.
...uhhh, lesse. Something about high-speed running, R'sheena, and Mashato Busuka, I think? =^.^=; They told me I had to follow them somewhere and do something urgent, but I can't remember what right now.

(12) If you were a supermodel, which supermodel would you be?
One of my own design. Nothing less could suffice. Too many unknowns. Hey, I know what I like.

(13) If you had to live in a hole, what kind of creature would you be?
I'd be me. In a hole. With high-speed Internet access, refreshments, and a full gaming assortment. So I guess it's really not so much a hole as a really cool hole.

(14) If you could have one thing right now, what would it be and why?
I...I actually can't decide. You might have to get back to me on this one.

(15) Name one thing about you that embarrasses you.
My high typo rate. It fluctuates up and down occasionally.

(16) Do you usually walk around your house with sandals or barefoot?
Barefoot, unless I already have socks on.

(17) Have you ever gotten something you really wanted but thought you wouldn't get?
Oh, wow. Where to start? Half my game consoles, the potential to have a job I really enjoy, good friends and emotional support...

(18) Name one thing you are presently excited about or fascinated by.
Did I mention I'm done with essays for the moment? On top of that, the semester's over in just a week and a half, too.

EDIT: to make my first sentence actually make sense.

I was talking with Thuryl about this a while ago, and he said companies usually wait so they can retool advertising campaigns in case they don't do well, especially in another region with the same language. This seems like a reasonable explanation.

At first I didn't realize my playlist wasn't properly shuffled, so I got this!

This song will be playing when I meet the love of my life:
Haruka Kanata. Woo! =^.^=

Right now, I feel:
DiscoWC. Uh, not quite. =^.^=;

What makes me happy is:
Baan Gaan - Brave Flash. Imban's corrupting me. =;.;=

My love of life was inspired by the song:
Moon Fight. Again, no complaints here. =^.^=

My message to the world has always been:
Don't Wait Until Night. Because it is, of course, a horrible night to have a curse.

Next time I'm in front of a crowd, I'll say:
Heart of Fire, Jorge Fuentes version. Um, what?

My friends see me as:
Dracula X- Richter's Theme (it's actually called Opposing Bloodlines). I'm on a roll.

When I'm drunk I say:
CVHoD-VK2k2. I'm afraid to find out whether this is accurate or not.

My alter-ego is:
Bloody Tears! Um, ew. But still cool. Maybe.

My deepest secret is:
Theme of Simon. Yes, it's true. I have never actually finished Castlevania IV. Or...even made it past stage IV. (By the way, the reason all of these are clumped together is because iTunes is sorting by album.)

My day will be like:
Out of Time. You can say that again. =>.>=

When I'm in the shower, I sing:
Art Tower. DOOT DEE DOO DOO DOO DEE DOO DOO I don't know the song very well~

My favorite thing to do is:
Introduction. Depends on what kind.

My parents are like the song:
Legacy of Darkness (Part 1). No comment.

My ultimate song for dancing is:
Water Dragon. One, two, three, chomp! One, two, three, fireball!

At my wedding they'll play:
Komm, susser Todd. ...uh-

The story of my life is:
Panzer World Galient. *boom*

My innermost desire is:
GO!!!. How appropriate!

To cheer myself up I sing:
Robot Hell Bonanza. Yep! In my head, mostly.

At my funeral they'll play:
ROCKS. In a good way. I hope. =^.^=

However, after learning how to properly shuffle my playlist, I got this:

This song will be playing when I meet the love of my life:
Crapsnake. ...yeah.*

Right now, I feel:
Inuyasha - Change the World. Uh, I guess that means I'm feeling slow and very filled. =^.^=;

What makes me happy is:
Albuqerque!

My love of life was inspired by the song:
I Lost on Jeopardy. Revenge is mine!

My message to the world has always been:
Negai Kanaeru Kagi. I don't know what it means, but I'll say it proundly!

Next time I'm in front of a crowd, I'll say:
DiscoWC. It'll be worth it.

My friends see me as:
Water Dragon (Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness). There must be some way I can use this. Rarr.

When I'm drunk I say:
Don't Wait Until Night...for the fun!

My alter-ego is:
GO!!!. My alter-ego is an Orz space marine...and a ninja?! That is freakin' awesome!

My deepest secret is:
Jerry Springer. BLAAAUGH. So horrible even I didn't know about it!

My day will be like:
Art Tower. This is...surprisingly apt.

When I'm in the shower, I sing:
Robot Hell Bonanza. Because no one else can hear me.

My favorite thing to do is:
Like a Surgeon. Eww.

My parents are like the song:
ROCKS. So they're unshaven drunken people with backup singers. Nice.

My ultimate song for dancing is:
Baan Gaan - Brave Flash. It doesn't even have much of a beat!

At my wedding they'll play:
Perfect Hair Forever theme. I can't think of anything to make this funnier than it is.

The story of my life is:
Zero Wing Rhapsody. Hope I don't explode. =;.;=

My innermost desire is:
Ore wa Mazinga. ...Uh, no comment. =^.^=;

To cheer myself up I sing:
Haruka Kanata. Actually true, if playing it in my head counts as singing.

At my funeral they'll play:
Crazy Sunshine. Oh, come on. =^.^=;

*crapsnake is a MIDI rendition of Snake Man's level them from Mega Man 3 that's, well, crap. There's also an accompanying file of Shadow Man's, which is my favorite level theme from the game. You can find them both here! http://megaman.net/index.php?item=midi

Make sure the hand icon of your character isn't selected. Also, you might want to refrain from going berserk for now - try activating the "D" icon to lower the scorpions' hit rate. It will also lower your attack skills, but that shouldn't be much of a problem with Sandra's knife.
And by the way, Sandra's not dead - she's the Mysterious Woman in the inn. (But you're not supposed to know this until you've finished the first part of the game.)

Well, I actually didn't know that, but I eventually decided to write the narrative with only the knowledge and meta-knowledge my character would have from experience up to that point, so I still won't bring it up until later. Thanks, though. =^.^=

Rate Homeland : The Stone of Night in General
Warrior
Member # 4537
Profile Homepage #38
I became curious by reading this thread and decided to try out Homeland for myself. Not wanting to splurge on money or hard drive space by seeking out a fully paid version right off, I decided to track down a demo first, which I found at a site called Dragonlord. I downloaded the Zip file, installed, and opened the game...

In the not-too-distant future...

You see, I sometimes like to see how bad things are for myself, especially games and movies. So anyway, given the comments I've seen here thus far, I expected a relatively bare-bones title screen, but what I got was actually pretty elaborate, complete with rendered graphics that were rather crude compared to the cutting edge of their time, but not abjectly horrible. Unlike Sorcerer Aran, I didn't have any problem getting the menu or screen to display, and so I happily clicked my way through to a new game, renaming my main character "Trogdor" and allocating all of my ten bonus points to Strength. I accepted my stats...

And then the fright began

The next thing I knew, I was in a house, talking to a father. I mean my father, apparently. He said some typical disturbing fantasy things about soil and wanting to live on a farm that doesn't actually produce anything forever and chuckled a lot. Then he directed me towards the town and proceeded to wander around the homestead for a while.

The newfound freedom of movement revealed a new problem, however; namely, that everything except me moved way too fast. I assume this stems partially from the game and my computer getting along uncannily well and the application managing to take full advantage of my system's specs. Anyway, I soon got a handle on clicking to move ("click-walking") and managed to stumble around, walking into people because I was trying to left-click to talk to them. Shortly afterward I tried right-clicking and mastered yet another invaluable skill: mimicking my dog.

Still, there was the problem of me not being able to walk very fast even with everything else whooshing by at blinding speed, so after addressing both my father and mother with my concerns and receiving only thinly-vieled pleas not to leave town and abandon them to their own helpless devices in return, I decided to head out and explore. Even though it was my first time outside of the house, the speed of walking was so unbearable that I might have cut my adventure short much sooner were it not for a timely discovery. By pure luck, I managed to figure out that if I double-clicked (or presumably also double-tapped a movement key) I could sprint like a madman! So I did.

Skipping through the town and whistling a jaunty tune, I was shocked to find out that there was actually a whole villiage here instead of just the starting house and the inn I had been told out. Perhaps this game wasn't as bad as the rumors made it out to me, I thought. The first building I came across was just to the west of my home - a tanner. I stepped inside and engaged the owner in a battle of wits, but was quickly laid flat by his borderline pirate-speak. Somewhere in there I think he told me his wife the level 10 Night Elf Huntress had died of hunting too much and all he could do was loot her corpse. And it was thus that I received my first weapon, Sandra's Knife, and a promise of one gold piece per snakeskin I brought back from the woods.

Continuing my merry escapade through the town revealed that most of the townspeople were only interested in not giving me a job, that I could not attack myself with the knife, and that my girlfriend was only interested in sniping at my ego as usual. I'm not sure what the villiagers are so afraid of. It's not like all the other shepherds were scarred for life, and besides, the paint did wash off eventually. I did notice something a little awkward, though, and it occurred to me that the ground of my entire world was divided up into squares that didn't behave properly, only allowing me to move diagonally by clicking instead of using the appropriate keys, and mapping on a different axis depending on which direction I moved on the same one. Anyway, I decided to head out into the forest and test my new weapon ...

It is a horrible night to have a curse

...except that this wasn't a forest. Um. I seemed to have stumbled into the field east of the farms, which had been cleared some twenty years ago and then never used, because crops had been poor ever since...ever. I soon found a river, which I recalled was supposed to have some flowers near it, so I followed it north past all of the unsuitable flowers and right back into town. Then I turned around.

Once again setting out bravely into the unknown forest, I encountered the rare and exotic Large Rocky Tree. Often taking the form of a rocky crag roughly twice the height of a human and easily mistaken for a small mountain range, the Large Rocky Tree grows so densely that it can create a literal maze with only one winding path between rows of trees. I powerwalked into the woods and took a left turn to the north, then a right to the east, then a right to the south, then a right to the west, then a right to the north...and naturally I hit a dead end. Being the completionist that I am, I became determined to map out as much of this mysterious forest as I possibly could, so my concussion and I stumbled back out of the dead end path and took another route. After finding two or three more dead ends, I suddenly heard a strange and unfamiliar skittering around the next bend. Leaping at breakneck speed around the corner, I encountered the most horrifying sight I had ever seen since the blinding light outside my front door...

We are Many, We are One

Scorpions! Immediately three of them sprang from their nest, and upon ascertaining that I was there, they proceeded to rock me like a hurricane. Thinking quickly, I drew Sandra's knife, hoping that it would save me where it had failed its former owner. I took one swipe at the lead scorpion, and...was hit twice in the same space of time. I crumpled to the ground, defeated. The last thing I saw as my vision faded was my dog staring blankly into space, as if to say "You should have read the manual first, moron"...

All in all, the game's basic engine wasn't quite what I was expecting. It does have some usable elements, like basic movement and dialogue, that might make it playable, not to mention that your dog travels around with you. Maybe tomorrow I'll give it another try, because there's surely no end to the comedy. =^.^=

The recent Mega Man games have become so crazily difficult to complete properly with all bonuses intact that I honestly can't imagine anyone actually trying, but if you want a ridiculous challenge you could look there.

I agree, I really liked the old Mega Man games, except MM1 and I also enjoyed the MMX series. These games were relatively difficult, but you didn't have a bunch of stupid bonuses to get in the way, like all the chips on MM Battle Network. (I still enjoyed it, but I didn't go get all the stupid chips or anything, even though I normally like to get 100% on games, it wasn't any fun to even try)
Ah, I had almost forgotten about those. I meant more along the lines of the MegaMan Zero games, where you get mission points taken off for every little slip-up to the point that to get a perfect rating, and all of the items and skills, you'd have to go through the entire game without getting hit. Get ready to save and reset, I guess!

(Of course, you can just use your Cyber-Elves and play it like a normal Mega Man game, but I felt guilty about killing them. For a while. Until I got a taste of how hard it is without them.)
