Not crushing so much as slamming :P You sickhead :)

I always had a slightly nicer image of people being randomly bodyslammed. You could make a hidden camera show about it.

Seriously, right now I'm watching some movie where a guy sends a porn picture to his girlfriend and has to get to his gf before the picture does...

Another really weird movie is Meatballs (its like an alien dude...and he's made outta clay...)

They're all trying to come up with something that gets rid of any use for a coder. Just trying to make our lives torture, and are slowly getting there, but I hope it happens no time soon.

I dont necessarily see that as a bad thing... the games you can make on popfly are very mundane and enough to satify someone too lazy to invest the time in learning to create anything innovative or even engaging. The way i see it, they are mopping up the developers who've been spoiled by creating cookie cutter lame games. Guess youll just have to push yourself now! the torture of having a challenge! Lets be honest theres some laaaaazy ass developers out there making money off of shit games.
Their days are numbered they are expendible now and always were. They ruin the scene.

Yeah, that's what I mean by it. It's not like it's really screwing everyone, but some of those people that make quick games. I'm thinking about making one a bit closer to jmtb02's type now, but I'm not exactly sure right now. After that though, I'm going to go closer to big things like Multiplayer Online, etc.

You sound like an evil genius :P The alternative is, their shite developments become much, much faster and more financially viable and open to more and more lazy people, thus flooding the whole scene in an innundation of greyness and drowning any remaining developers who put their hearts into things.

Anyway, new topic:

Random game idea #1204

I'll just throw this idea out to see what anyone thinks of it:

Game without the first three quarters

Luis' and BoM's Pico game gave me this idea. The last quater or so of a game is usually the best, so why not cut out the first bit?

I was thinking of like having a fake menu with a broken 'New Game' button so the user would have to click 'Continue', with cutscenes and stuff set out to give the illusion that the user is just diving back into a previous save file. The only problem is that some viewers might get confused and think that it's a bug that they can't start a new game, so you'd probably need some disclaimer.

Still, it'd the a good way of throwing the user straight into some intense action without having to convey a bulky plot or learning curve. I was thinking that the 'save file' could commence right after a penultimate boss battle:

Main character: Wow, I can't believe I made it out of there alive!
Helper guy: Good job! You managed to beat #AMUSING_NAME!
Main character: All those colours... That was the single most beautiful thing I've ever seen. I could hardly bring myself to raise my gun!
Helper guy: Well, get over it. You're unlikely to see anything of that intensity again.
Main character: Yeah, you're right. I'll go on...

Meh. You know, flash multiplayer online games never catch on as well as some large single-player games. The big thing about them is that casual gamers just dont care about playing online or whatnot.

Lately I've started to realize very few people even care if there are highscores in a game, as long as it is fun and keeps you playing, you don't need to see how well you fair against others (this discludes puzzle games).

That's why I haven't put in highscore tables for the last few of my games, it's a waste and doesn't even urge the player to play again. Otherwise, when a player wants to win against himself or win challenges within the game, then they feel they have a purpose.

Not to say multiplayer is bad, but just to give you a view of where casual flash gaming is leading. Thankfully, no one will even want to play the games made by popfly, as far as I can tell you use preset engines that have been done TONS of times YEARS ago. Boring.

Now I'm off to continue coding. Bai.

Random Game Idea #957

Make a game totally of bosses. All you are able to do is fight the last boss of every level and there are no average badguys that you fight constantly.

Well then anybody that actually tries and does something different and good should have a game that stands out even more. The only thing that would worry me is that the dime-a-dozen Breakout clones would get more recognition and plays than a genuinely unique and good game, most likely. As for your 3/4 skipped idea, it sounds cool. As for the first 3/4 of games sucking, well, it depends on the game I guess. Sometimes the build-up of story and other elements are what make the end so good and enjoyable, unless it's something like the end of Half-Life 2. That was awesome fun.

As for only bosses in a game, how was Shadows of the Colossus? I'm assuming the idea would work since that was apparently a good game. I don't know though, I don't think the rest of the gameplay has to be bad. Bosses are always fun, but if the core gameplay itself is fun, the trip there should be enjoyable too.

Bosses are fun. I like it when they go BANG and splatter to lil' bits... just like the possum I hit with a hammer today. >:3

Microsoft Popfly

I have no interest in it whatsoever. I'll stick with flash and the usual. I can't see it making much of an impact anyway. We'll no it's a problem when their's a "Popfly" forum on NG. :P

Tankies/Nominees

I like it. I like it a lot.

Many good games and movies. Very pleasent line-up and interesting panel of judges.
Congrats to all our reg peeps who got in a panel. ^^
