Jackalotrun Plays - Super RMN World


























Posts

The thing is, normally I'm the same - I genuinely get annoyed at people who see me playing an old game and say something along the lines of it being ugly and look entirely past the gameplay, but the gameplay of RMN World genuinely never really falls at any point, it's always consistently good, so graphics and gimmicks tend to become the easiest thing to talk about

If this level was in say one of the RMN Bros trilogy, I'd have talked a lot more about the levels gameplay quality because the gameplay quality in the original three tended to differ a lot, you got some crap and you got some masterpieces

are my levels good

I'll get back to you on that tomorrow, I'll have to play the levels again to refresh myself and right now I really should be getting some sleep

All right, that's a much more fair assessment. I apologize for getting uppity myself. It's sort of a pet peeve of mine when style choices are griped about. As a giver of critique, I try to look at consistency over form. Even this final level has a couple things I'd alter now (like those Snifits). It's a personal philosophy thing and it just struck a nerve, that's all.

Also, I'm well aware your actually very good at SMBX. I know most of the troubles you had here were due to tiredness and the length of recording. I'm sure you'll demolish it next time.
Now see, there's a reason I like to dance around my words when I record, and often try and correct myself if I feel I judge too harsh so lemme set a few things straight here

For starters, yes - I was tired while playing, editing and uploading, this may have caused me to be less careful about my words and I obviously am not going to blame anyone for that

Let me be clear that when I said I held you responsible for the level kicking the bejesus out of me I was joking - I'm not going to point fingers because waaaaaaaah level hard, I knew it was a hard level going in, however I will accept that, quite clearly, I should've stopped at an earlier point as my patience did in fact clearly get the better of me

Look, you're defending your creation here and I respect that, but please do not gauge my ability as a gamer as the right to whether I am allowed to criticise work, yes I was impatient and clumsy but that does not mean that I don't have a right to state my opinion as much as you have a right to defend your work

Hali, you have, as head judge, created a game here with an incredible array of interesting levels created by a large array of talented hobbyist game designers - your final level is fine, incredibly tight and well designed and at no point is it unfair or ugly, but after a game of incredible looking levels, to have the final stage, the pinnacle, be aesthetically something that has been in every SMBX game I've ever played multiple times isn't going to be all that interesting to look at, I didn't make the level so I don't know why I am expected to understand why you went for a universal tileset without it being told to me prior

Quite frankly actually, the level itself is a near-perfect refinement of the SMW castle if you ask me, genuinely the best SMW Castle stage I have EVER played, and that is not hyperbole, small sections that play off their specific gimmicks in a great way that means the level does not fall flat at any point and the multi-stage boss fight is great too

I think in my excitement to actually finish this 5 year project of mine, I recorded when I really shouldn't have, I should've waited until a day when I was more alert and awake

All right, I watched the whole thing. Now, I know you were tired while playing, and I know you're in a bit of a rut right now, but I refuse to be held responsible for your impatience, clumsiness, and general demeanor. Personally, I think you might've deserved it for insulting our 'plain-Jane' SMW castle. I chose that theme because the World Gallery is also an SMW castle, and since all the judges made a piece, it gave us a universal tile set so the level would be consistent. You may be bored of these graphics by now, but we used them just fine, and there's nothing objectively wrong with the stage's aesthetics. I'm glad you're almost done and have mostly enjoyed the game, but failing to 'wow' you is not a criticism I accept as valid.

It's supposed to be hard. And the other judges contributed the trial sections themselves. I'll see how it went down soon enough.
Episode 24 is up, clocks out at 1 hr 9 minutes
Hali the last level kicked the bejesus out of me and I'm holding you accountable
I actually have episode 24 rendering now, but I feel as if I need to note a few things first

A) It's an hour
B) I get really annoyed doing the final level so I've had to replace a good section of commentary with music because no-one wants to hear me cuss at the top of my lungs a lot
C) I start, but fail to complete, the final boss
D) The next episode, for the fact explained above is most certainly the finale

Noice! I'll be sure to check this out tomorrow!
This might be late in said evening but I did say I'd have content up this evening
I now have episode 23 up and I've updated the ol' Youtube Banner and Logo Pic

Also, meant to say sooner that I read your blog entry and it's really sad to hear you've had such a rough time of things. I hope you're able to get your life back on track soon.


Also, also, meant to say sooner, appreciate it - sounds like my first recording session will be monday not next week - week after, so I'm hoping to have some content up that evening

I will personally slap the crap out of you if you fail. My slaps don't do much damage, so it will be a slow and painful death. But rest assured, your crap will be slapped out of you.

So don't fail! :D
So, I understand it's been nine months since my last video, I have come back with the intention of finishing this let's play once and for all with plans being to make my Youtube Channel a much larger aspect of my life again (no delusions of grandeur this time though)

To explain why I'm doing this and because I do actually enjoy writing, I have created a blog, obviously whether you view it is up to you but I would greatly appreciate it (and possibly a cheeky bookmark, I do intend to do some actual game blogging on there) https://jackstermurphy.wixsite.com/thejackalsden/home/__why

In about two weeks time, my ability to create videos without distractions will increase so that is when I'm aiming to record the next episode, for the love of everything, hold me to it god-damn it

You skipped Toadly's speech?! How could you pass on the most ridiculous tirade in video game history?!

I don't even know you, man. I don't even KNOW you.

j/k it's fun to skip it too
Whoops, accidentally dropped the wrong vid on here by accident Saturday, y'all like that old Minecraft vid?
We'll see how long I can keep this workrate up, I'm not a horrendously busy person these days but it does take up a large chunk of time to record, edit, render and upload these things
Which yes, means new video, I have yet to find a way to notify people I have updated the LP without leaving a proddy comment, would be nice if maybe there was a way to sent out a page updated notice or something, but me suggesting that would require me to not be an introvert

I support this.
I elected to make the completion of this let's play my New Years Resolution
The same look of doubt in everyone as a new gym membership with none of the price!

Edit: I feel as if I should point out that yes, this does mean a new episode

Looked pretty darn smooth in that new vid!
So, less in a rush now so, to sum up
Old computer RIPed
New computer came
Video is good quality (I think)
Audio needs syncing better
