  1. Making Simple, Fun Games with Beginner Tools. Full Time!

  2. I was shocked and appalled as a kid when Super Mario Bros stopped getting more difficult after the third iteration of the levels. People forget that Atari games treated gameplay like a sport or a board game. You don't "finish" a game: you master it.

      I always tried breaking my games by seeing how far you could push something. Or by not following the instructions. Or by running up the score counter. I was like 5 years old at the time.

      hehe, strangely enough I never cared about that. Even on Atari I imagined an "adventure" when playing, never mind scores or challenge. So it came natural to me when games actually offered something like that with an end.

      Nintendo brought in a new way to play games. It also catered to a different crowd. I love both for different reasons. I would have not wanted to see what we would be playing if it was not for Nintendo.

  3. Dracula: It was not by my hand that I am once again given flash! Dracula: I was called here by MARKETERS, who wished you pay NINTENDO points! Richter: "Points"?! You steal users property rights, and make them update! Dracula: Perhaps the same could be said of all platforms. Richter: Your EULAS are as empty as your soul. Gamers ill needs a system such as you. Dracula: WHAT IS A EULA?!? *goblet toss* A miserable little pile of secrets! Dracula: But enough talk...

      Yeah, I really hated that new Nintendo EULA. Everything froze up until you agreed to the terms, even Miiverse on PCs. This is crap, Nintendo!

      Nevermind Dracula, Howard Lincoln has risen from the grave...

      I was thinking that a EULA that literally bricks your property if you don't agree would not be acceptable to anyone. I guess people don't read EULAs. I'll never give anyone permission to alter my equipment without consent.

  5. Just had two quarts of veggie juice. All that bull about juicing making you full is actually true.. too true infact.. *burp*

  6. No more locked down forced firmware DRM online only garbage for me. Fighting with Sony PSP firmware keeps reminding me why.

      First time I hear AA had some arrangement with Atari or anyone. For all I know AA is hosting those games simply because they think nobody will complain. And that has proven corrrct, yet it is still not technically legal. I agree that some definite stance on the matter by AA would be welcome. I suggest PMing Albert.

  11. Why is it when you plan to make a simple game it turns out to take over 4 months?

      4 months? Don't you know that you can make a game that is cartridge-ready in a single weekend? No need for bug testing and polishing.

      You'll never forgive me for that Cyber Willy game I made, will you? :)

      You need to work in "I'm a midnight POKEr" into that somehow. :)

      Oops! Right on :)
