Episode 11

After a few hiccups uploading and re-uploading. Episode 11 is here,in all its non Halloween themed glory.

For those that noticed, when I first uploaded the video it only showed the first 3 minutes or so. Somehow me re-formatting the file made it better, go figure. Been busy getting back home for the weekend and dealing with some lame ass haunted house deal earlier today. So didn't even notice until Krimsin commented, so thanks a ton man you saved my ass.

As for the rest of you. YOU SAW NOTHING!

Somebody also just mentioned my LP of Half-Life using the SMOD Tactical modification might have a chance of resurrection! I'll check this out but it sounds promising.

I Got a Better Idea

Remember that Point Man sprite I made not to long ago? How I said it was a stupid idea mainly due to the fact I can't draw...good... to save my life?

Well I found a way around that problem by simplifying things. I won't spoil when this will happen as its still further in the game and this is a long process. But suffice to say The Point Man's adventures into drug abuse won't end when he reaches maximum.

Thought of this mystery idea after some VO recording trouble forced me to give up for the day. Even got bored and made Point Man a few pixel friends (it was for fun, I haven't talked to anyone about it.).

I'll leave the guessing up to you guys. Till then!

Halloween is Coming up.

And I completely forgot about it.

Sorry guys, If you were looking forward to a Halloween themed special episode I kinda dropped the ball on this one. I actually haven't payed attention to Halloween in 5 years so I guess it was a force of habit.

On the bright side, I'm hoping to get episode 11 out by the end of the month just in time for the holiday. And this is one of the creepiest/scariest parts of the game too! So that kinda works out.

I still feel bad for letting anyone down though. So I've already begun work on a special episode that's a few more months down the road. Hopefully that makes up for this.

I'm not the only one doing a scary game!

MightyPirate finally released Harrison's mind Episode 1.

Cool stuff. How he did the intro was a lot more like the movies which is good. I actually thought about doing something similar myself for the atmosphere, but FEAR isn't based on an existing franchise so that wouldn't work out too well. All in all I like it.

I always forgot how big the maps were compared to the player in the campaign. Proportions always looked off for the player character's perspective compared to everyone else.
Besides all that this is pretty cool, nice to see I wasn't the only one who thought shouting "clear" in these lone wolf situations was stupid.

I miss Online Multiplayer

In case a lot of you weren't aware, when I moved out so I could attend college there were a few setbacks. I already mentioned the sound issue which is more or less fixed...sorta.

What hasn't been fixed is that the internet service I get up here is wireless and provided by the school campus wide. Meaning I can't play any of my games online with anyone and any games I have that require me to be connected to the internet even for single player are useless.
I'm back home for the Thanksgiving weekend (Canada remember?) so I can get back into gaming again but only while I'm here. As soon as I leave I'm shit out of luck. Only option I have to get around this is to get an entirely separate ISP to provide me with a fast connection, which will cost me money I don't have.

It does work out a little well because this way I can focus on my work more. Still though, I'm pretty sure The Shining started out like this and we all know how Jack Nicolson's character handled it. Did I mention I don't get any TV either?

Anywho, just me feeling like bitching about stuff that's completely irrelevant to you guys. This doesn't prevent me from recording footage or playing this my purely offline games either. So don't worry about it.


If you don't cry man tears after seeing this then you need to play Mass Effect 1 and 2 now!

10 is here...Finally!

Hell yeah! Got it done! And with a little extra to boot. Hope you guys enjoy this. Gotta work on 11 now, I'm hoping to get to the end of Interval 3 in at most 2 more episodes so we get at the real meat of the game.

Until then!
