I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

ESBY I have bad news. You are actually softlocked in that spot. Your game design career is over because you can never leave the desert and get back to your computer.

[RM2K3] Collabing with someone!

Wrong section of the forum, but it's definitely nice to see a newbie who wants to join a collab project and actually has something to contribute. Most of them want to be the "idea guy."

Head over to the Job Board section and talk in some more detail about yourself and your work. A short post like this isn't going to convince anyone to work with you, since about 95% of newbies flake out before finishing anything, and 95% of the remaining ones are totally incompetent. You need to really sell yourself.

[Poll] Metroid Prime 4 To Open World or Not to Open World that is the question

The Four Horsemen of the Gaming Apocalypse:

Open World
Procedurally Generated

Oh my god, the worst part is that I can very clearly visualize each of these.

Here are some more horror story ideas to make you recoil:

  • Metroid Online, the MMORPG where you can see fifty other people solving the puzzle you need to solve, right in front of you
  • Metroid Souls, where you lose all your powerups when you die and have to recollect them before dying a second time (despite not being able to actually get to that spot because you don't have them)
  • Metroid Go, the mobile tap-to-win game with an awful gacha system. Pay $50 hoping to get morph ball but instead just get six missile expansions, two super bomb expansions and three chunks of metroidite ore to refine your items with if you ever get any. All actual gameplay is completly automatic.
  • Metroidcraft, the ultra-low-poly building game that lets you create your own expansive Metroid-style levels for other players to get through. Except instead of solving them, they'll just tear them down with a mining drill and use the parts for their giant penis sculpture.

What's your favorite X-Files episode?

Haha. I just started watching them for the first time last year. I think I just have really hokey taste.

What's your favorite X-Files episode?

In season 4 or 5, the stretchy guy actually escapes from prison and shows up in another episode.

What's your favorite X-Files episode?

Comic about Ice:

I think one of my favorite episodes is probably the one where Mulder finds his sister for like the third time, except she hasn't aged in 20 years even though she was an adult in a previous episode, and also there are a hundred clones of her:

the new christmas toy that nobody will ever see on shelves (spoilers it the snes classic)

The version of Star Fox 2 on this thing should be a finished version that hasn't been seen before. I don't really expect being complete to make SF2 a great game or anything, though.
That'd be nice if they somehow improved the game; my understanding was that the prototype was 99.9% done and just missing some things like minor bug fixes. The biggest thing that might be an improvement is if the SNES Mini has a better version of the SNES hardware that doesn't have any lag or framerate issues.

But I actually hope that's not the case, because if the other 20 games all run faster too, then speedrunners will get PISSED. These are 20 of the most popular speedrun games, and speedrunning is what's keeping the SNES relevant, and it'll be pretty awful if they just effectively wiped everyone's records by releasing significantly faster versions of all the top games.

[Poll] How do you like to run in ARPGs?

Hmm, we're talking about action RPGs, so it is different. But I think mostly the difference is that if you're going to have different movement speeds, they need to actually affect the action.

If the only reason you have multiple movement speeds in your game is because normal movement is too slow for exploring the open world, but fast movement is too fast for combat, then I suggest adding vehicles or horses to your game instead. This serves a similar purpose to fast travel - letting the player skip the action when going through an area that doesn't have any - but lets you keep your open world concept and have the player feel like they're still actually traversing the area. World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy 14 and the 3D games in the Zelda series all do this, and it works more or less flawlessly.

[Poll] How do you like to run in ARPGs?

Uh, the other 99% of the game where you want to move as fast as possible is when it's bad.
