IGN AH Coverage Aug. 25th, 2004 @ 06:47 PM Reply

IGN just posted a very positive progress report on Alien Hominid! They said a lot of great things about AH, and the only complaints they have center around issues that have been resolved since their build was sent out!

Check out the IGN AH PROGRESS REPORT!

Also, if you haven't already, be sure to check out the AH Gamespace on Gamespot, complete with developer interview!

Today I continued updating old pages with the new layout. It has been a very aggressive week. I also posted series pages for Weebl and Bob as well as Kegel!

The video game parody pages need major updates. I finally added a few exceptional works to the Megaman page. Be sure to watch those first three if you've never seen them!

Vote pages have been updated, but have a couple of issues. One I mentioned before was that the flash buttons do NOT consistently load a refreshed copy of the target page. I can get back to the Portal page fine, I just have to hit refresh every time I get there to ensure that I haven't missed out on new entries.

The "stamperized" layout on the Vote page needs to get tweaked ... it constantly flashes a white screen before grabbing the images to put on it. The PID screens start out with the grey background, and the Vote screens need to do so as well. The strobing from that is already giving me a headache.

Awesome. That's cool such a small game is betting so much attention. I hope it sells well.

That is quite exciting. I remember when AH came out as just a flash game. Played it a few times, forgot about it... Now it's feels like an old high school chum that you've lost touch with has suddenly become the hottest new celeb...

Okay, not exactly, but you get the drift. Part of the progress report said a little something that was definitely UFA related. Heh, go read it now!

I also have this problem, and it starting to really annoy me. Sometimes i forget, and sit waiting for a few minutes, then refresh only to be hit with 11 new submission i havent voted in.

Otherwise, the updates are looking great, the site is progressing nicely and AH is getting the attention it finally deserves.

Pfft, the hominid's attacks are identical to the ones in Metal Slug? Sound like they forgot about something.

CHOMP!

That's a browser quirk. I'll try and think a way around it.

The PID screens

You forgot a really good megaman-zero-sonic-link series. The glitch ones. IT starts out with megamans glitch. Then after that season it goes to zeros glitch. then sonics glitch, then links glitch(currently worked on. You have to have seen them since they have been on the front page

Man, I cannot wait to play the consol version. I was playing AH on the computer the other day with some friends, and we were all like this game is so kickass, I introduced it to a couple friends who are obsessed right now.

I seriously, need to play the consol version of AH, it's going to be insane!

Portal ID screens ... when you click a link to bring up the /portal/view/XXX page. They flicker all-white for a couple of milliseconds before loading the graphics, while the vote screen runs 1/2 second up to a full second stalled on white.

It's nice to see the site finally getting some attention after you have been ignoring it since AH production started.

Six days!?! Wow, time sure flies when you're 20.

Oh, and congrats on unifying the layout and updating the collections. I hope to see to see the new content and BBS text search fixed.
