I loved it, but I couldn't find some last few gems since the gems restart everytime you lose to the nightmare, I was only able to beat him once thanks to a glitch.

Re:Level Up
I'll get Duncan to write up his thoughts on Level Up and put them somewhere. He did it partly as a critique on grinding in rpg games if I remember correctly.

I love all the hate people have for Shadow, considering the fact you don't actually need to ever fight her to win the game...

Not me. My financial situation isn't great and I have lots of work to do, so I am glad I never committed ^_^ That is if it's the thing I'm thinking of and by deltas wordsies I'm sure I'm right and I'm pretty sure that's this month.

I loved the game, but the nightmare sequence comes out of nowhere and there's no instruction on what it is.. that annoyed me :P Does it last a predefined amount of time or something? (Yes, I closed the game after a good 3 minutes of 'huh? wha?').

You get instructions on how to beat her after fighting her for the first time in the Codex. You effectively have to make her walk into her own meteorites, and collect the black gems she drops. I believe this was done so that you have to use every single one of your core six skills (running, jumping, taking damage, healing, collecting and health/relationship) in the boss fight.

Of course, she levels up during the fight too. Which makes her attack patterns a bit tougher to get around. Dash certainly helps for the invulnerability after taking the first blow feature, as does double jump and Hardy for just plain getting out of the way. Ultimately though, it's designed to be as frustrating as possible - it's a nightmare after all. Fortunately your Knowledge skill and your Sleep skill don't drop if you lose to her, giving you more time to level up at a faster rate even if you do fail. Par for completing the game is about Day 3 (which is what I managed to get in testing. Still haven't beaten Shadow yet either).

Bingo, even the Farmville CEO admits to it. Dunno how business saavy their ceo is but he doesnt seem to do pr that well. 'I knew that i wanted to control my destiny, so I knew I needed revenues, right, fucking, now. Like I needed revenues now. So I funded the company myself but I did every horrible thing in the book to, just to get revenues right away.'

Anyway long story short they are fighting some sort of lawsuit right now for their scammy ads so maybe that 1 billion was short lived.

Bull.
Explain yourself. IMO It's not bull. It just depends on your definition of a good game.

You have to be a pretty fundamentalist capitalist to claim that how good a game is is just proportional to how much money it makes. Especially in a creative scene like this, quality and profitability aren't exactly comfortable together.

I never claimed a game's quality is proportional to how much money it makes, in fact I have no idea how much money Farmville made the developers. What I said is that the amount of people play a game has some sort of linkage with its qualities. And in my defense, you people have a narrower (more artistic/creative) scope of a 'good game' than I do. Apparently Farmville has some sort of addictiveness to it, which imo is a quality as well.

Besides, I never agreed with the fact so many people seem to think it's an enjoyable game. I'd rather play something that's more creative/artistic, where you can see the developers spend tons of effort and sprinkled copious amounts of love on their product (like Okami, Ico or Uncharted). Just wanted to get the point across that a game being either good or bad isn't as black and white as some of you make it sound.

yeah, you can beat the game in like a minute or so. Then nightmare sequence really isn't that hard, it's just something you have to get used to. But I've really been lovin' the games Tom posted yesterday.

I'm a little too shy to just try to call attention
to my posts and whatnot every hour of the day.
I'm pretty outgoing at events with my friends and whatnot, though.
So I'm not a total party killer.

Why did you go out of your way to act rude? Couldn't you have just as easily said 'He might not like the attention'?

I personally don't like having the first post because it makes me feel like I'm talking to myself and not part of the earlier conversation.

I wasn't looking for you to feel sorry, I was asking a question. Of course, I was foolish for expecting a mature response on the internet, my mistake. Carry on.

I think that's a bit of a stretch, but I can see what you're saying. I wish I had a copy of those old gaia ads when they were advertising the waterballoon fights, those things were borderline hentai.

Advice ?

Yea so I planned out my forest game and shit and realized I'm going big with it, meaning the games that take more than 5 mins to beat.

Now what I'm wondering is since its one of those adventure games, should I go with animated cutscenes to go with the story ?

If your thinking "are you able to animate them ?" then yes I can so what I'm wondering is if I should add them or not.

Unless they're really short, or VERY catchy, then don't bother I say.
I always just tend to look over them, I'm too impatient.

When I say short, I mean like Meat Boy short.
The intro there went straight to the point,
and didn't bore me for a second.
