GTA IV
My life beyond Flash is being a historian of early video game culture and adoption into mainstream society... and GTA IV is already heading down the path of raising concern over gun control and teen homicide rates again in real-life affairs. I find it amazing how mainstream culture adopts video games as tripwires for advocating gun and violence safety. I believe the graph below may be one piece of supporting evidence for this reasoning... or just an indication that we have replaced violence in real life with violence in a virtual setting.

EARLY PICO DAY:

My feeling is that early submissions are a little against the grain of the spirit of the day. It's supposed to be about honoring the character(s) on his day, not about beating the competition to the punch or ensuring you get a trophy.

Plus it's like a huge gift to Tom on his birthday, an overwhelming rush of high-quality stuff in the medium he knows and appreciates.

I don't believe that people were just mistaken about the day or had extenuating circumstances, I see it as a selfish move on those authors' parts.

Do you have something similar for violent crime?

But yeah, we have something similar (albeit slightly less nonsensical) over in the UK about alcohol :s It's all silly really.

Very true. It really does seem like a living city. There's so much that can be seen and heard, and so many ways to go about things.

My highlight so far (besides the cutscenes in general) has to be picking my girlfriend up in a stolen car that had the blood of the people I had just ran over splattered across the hood. She didn't care.

RE: Early Pico Day

Hmm, I was kinda thinking about this too...I mean there is a better chance to get trophies and recognized more today. But that ruins the fun, doesn't it? Its not about trophies or recognition its for Tom Fulp, for creating this site and for creating pico

But I'm smart so I get it (except I was going to just say that optimus prime would be awesome...but I realized it would ruin the newgrounds part...I had to think about it)

Now I'm off to play FFX, and ITS ALL YOUR FAULT? How does that make you feel?

hopefully you don't feel bad

RE: Early Pico Day

Mebbe its the people on the other side of the globe for whom it is already April 30th. But I'm betting some people just wanted to beat the others to the punch. I see little point in doing so.

Anyways, I didn't make anything for it. I feel bad. :(

Time lapse de-suckage
Does anyone ever do this? Come back and redraw a character or a picture or something that they drew a year or two ago. It's pretty encouraging, for those of you who don't think that your work is paying off or showing any change.

It does, but it unfortunately also sounds like Kongregate.com's idea :P They've had it up and running for months now - it's pretty cool actually.

I was thinking of making something similar to Xbox achievements, but for Flash. Basically, a developer could put some code in his game and set achievements at whenever he wants. Users can also make accounts on the site, and when they play a game that uses this achievement system, they just enter their username and password to get the achievements into their account (when they ear them). Does this sound like a good idea?

I know some people are already far into a project like that. A friend of mine has been working on something like it the past month.

South park?!

Anyone got the feeling that there slowly but surely going to run out of ideas? i mean i enjoy the earlier episodes like "Pip" when it's a nicely packed episode of character building.

I dunno it's just lately seems like tray and stone are running out of things to rip on, will it be the end of south park sometime soon? Lets hope not.

Screw your guys I'm going back to /art :D

I'm pretty sure NG could capitalise on it as well. With that API and all it wouldn't be too hard for games to access it, and for the API to check the game's score [yknow, quality measures and all that jazz], take the session ID of the user, add gamer score to your EXP... someone put it on Tom's "after I trim my beard" list...

GTA4
Worth every penny if you already like the game franchise. Otherwise, probably not going to appeal. But I've yet to know anyone who's not played GTA for more than ten minutes and not loved it.

sorry for the double post, I just noticed this and thought to post...

Illegal Porn
An act which threatens or appears to threaten a person's life
An act which results in or appears to result in serious injury to a person's anus, breasts or genitals
Sexual Abuse
An act which involves or appears to involve sexual interference with a human corpse
Illegal Necrophilia
A person performing or appearing to perform an act of intercourse or oral sex with an animal
Illegal Bestiality

So mostly, this stuff is illegal. The only two major things I noticed that were new is that things which "APPEAR" to ______ are illegal, which is odd. I would've thought it could be like fake violence and just be passed off as it is in video-games.

I don't know - at this Tom seems like the sort of person who wants everything major about this site to be pioneering, original and ahead of the competition. If they did stick in some kind of API, it'd have to be something so radically new and out of the box that people dismissed Kongregate's one as chalk drawings.

Is it me or is the UK becoming more and more fascist? I mean, in a polite, multicultural, British way, but fascist nonetheless.

That's a pretty major difference. I'd go as far as to say that it's a gargantuan difference which changes the whole idea of the law :s I'm not a porn freak by any stretch of the imagination, so I don't want to make any assumptions, but would that extend to hentai and junk like that as well? I mean whatever happened to 'to each his own'?
