Addictions

I'm not addicted to anything at the moment, and haven't been for about 3 years. But I have been addicted to habbo and runescape. But this was when I was about 10-11, so don't judge me :P

Wait, you are going to college right?

No :p I'm in sixth form, where laptops aren't neccessary/essential... but it still might be nice to have one.

buy an xbox 360 for halo 3

I'm not into shooters, I prefer colourful family games that Nintendo is great at.

MMO addictions

I don't think I've ever been addicted... wait, I don't think I've ever truly played an MMO either :p

Laptop is ESSENTIAL to college life. Seriously, I regretted every minute I had a desktop.

I used a laptop at home for a while and it wasn't worth the mobility. It ran far worse than a desktop of similar price, touch pads are absolute jokes, the USB stuff I had plugged in came loose if you looked at it funny and the RAM was too low to realistically produce any serious Flash products without constant crashing and snail's pace running. The desktop I have now is far superior and like half the price. Plus sitting at a desk is more comfortable and better for your back :)

I wouldn't get a laptop unless you're hardly going to get any access to your desktop in free time, and having something mobile is completely necessary. Otherwise just get an awesome desktop.

I hadn't noticed. I've not been on the forum a lot lately, though. I remember occasional threads like that, and they're pretty annoying unless there's something specific they need help for.

The way i see it, if you post one, that should be enough. If you really want, you can post updates in it and ask for feedback, if people don't give you any, making another thread probably won't help.

MMO Addiction

I used to play Runescape a lot. I quit about the same time I started using Flash. I also played Kingdom of Loathing for a while.

RE: Laptops

i have Flash 8 installed on my laptop...it's a piece of shit, though - 850 mHz and and has 256 megs of ram. i mostly use it for API practice when i'm not at home, since exporting code doesn't seem to take a god damn hour.

RE: MMO Addiction

my brother got a 60-day WoW card for his birthday...he's pretty much obsessed with the game. he keeps telling me to get the demo, but i think i want to keep my social life.

by the way, hai.

RE: MMO Addiction

Yeah, I absolutely hate when people tell me to try out WOW or get the trial/demo because I don't want to play something that I'd get addicted to, especially something that I pre-hate.

They're great! But mine is a tad slow, but it still can run Flash 8 pro, Fireworks 8 pro and play Heritage of kings the settlers, and thats all I use it for so its cool.

Addictions

World of Warcraft (puzzle pirates was actually pretty cool but they make ya pay so might as well pay for WoW).

Nooblets updating on their stupid Flash Projects

I love how they all just keep updating, most of them will never even finish their Flash.

Only if you do no actual work and the project never even nears completion.

If anyone's curious about my *actual* current project, here's another wee screenshot. Things are progressing well.

RE: Gaming Addictions

I obsessed myself with Battlefield 2 back in June. Here's my stats. I soon after got into Dungeon Runners from NCsoft, but that was killed when I realized that, although paid membership is optional, it's a requirement if you actually want to have fun.

I play CS:S, DOD:S, and Garry's Mod on-and-off sporadically. Bioshock stole me away for a good two weeks, and now I'm crazed over the Enemy Territory: Quake Wars demo. It's wicked fun, go download it if you have a decent rig. To sum it up, imagine Battlefield 2142 in the Quake universe, but better.

christmas movie or short?

hey guys i havent really posted in a while, i guess im turning into a renae, anyways i really liked that bumblebee video it was uber tight :O, also i have given up on making games and making money, nothing ever finishes and ive decided im jsut better off making movies for fun than games for profit, plus you would see more of me. which leads me to a question, ive always wanted to make an animation for christmas but i always start like a week before, im asking you if i should make a long (30-40 min :O) movie with ok animation, (im planning on animating like 5 mins a week so nothing uber nice looking) or a almost as good as i can do super polished short 3 minute movie.... pick now >:C (also this is probably going to turn out like the turd sandwich vs giant douche epsiode of southpark, in which it wont really matter since it probably wont happen but a guy can dream...)

Well, I've actually browsed your site (since Websense doesn't block it at school, btw, your link to Johnny Rocketfingers 2 doesn't work, it opens another swf), I've seen a lot of your artwork.

While you are really well known for being a coder, I was really blown away by some of your BG artwork and character design. No lie, some of that shit was Adam Phillips quality.

The only reason I asked if Luis was doing shit for it was because the other day he rattled off a list of about 3 people he was doing game sprites for and you have worked together on at least 2 games (Mucusmorphobia and NG Rumble). Glad to hear that you're doing your own shit though. I can't wait to see it!

Maybe if I kiss your ass enough I can beta test :3 I'll talk to you on AIM sometime maybe.

GMod
I'm curious. Anybody here play Garry's Mod? I'm addicted to the damn thing. Mostly Zombie Survival though (mod for gmod).. If anybody doesn't know what gmod is it's just a physics sandbox. Well, the game is just a mod for HL2, and you just build things in the game. But people make mods to the game, like CTF, ZS, and other crap.. so anybody here play it?

Laptops

I got a used laptop 4 or 5 years ago... and at the next oppurtunity I bought myself a desktop, much easier to work on and the fact that my old laptop is 700mhz made my new at the time beast like computer great.

In general laptops are around 2 years behind the ghz of desktops... so you have to think if a two yeard old computer that's portable is worth the money to you.

I use my laptop for notes soccasionly at school and its a godsend. Mine was free though, don't know if I'd pay for one now...

Totally worth it, to me at least. Being able to just throw it in a case and take it anywhere trumps performance. My laptop is, maybe, five years old, I got it used off a friend. I'd been moving around a lot for awhile and hauling a bulky PC with monitor, speakers, keyboard and having to deal with setting it up again every time I moved would have sucked when compared to placing it on a desk and plugging it in. Mu laptop works perfectly with Flash, a little laggy with Photoshop, but I just added some ram to fix that, so it does pretty much everything I want it to do. Yeah, I'd like to be able to play the latest games, but a desktop from five years ago would have the same problem, so I don't really care.

I have no doubt that my next computer will also be a laptop as well.

Pics or it didn't happen.

Also, I hate clothes shopping. it forces me to admit that I am fucking huge (in many ways).

I also dislike how I have a pair of jeans that are comfortable/maybe a bit large, and I tried to get another pair of the same brand, size, and style, yet somehow the new ones don't fit at all. What the fuck? I know jeans can stratch a little, but that's fucking ridiculous.

And fuck shopping at American Eagle, Abercrombie&Fitch, Hollister, and Aeropostle. I do not have money to piss away on shit like that. JC Pennys for Life. And Maybe Hot Topic for the occasional shirt (I got a pretty sick Venom T-Shirt for 15 buck ^o^).
