Never did get past the first screen of this darn game, but wouldn’t it have made for an awesome ’80s college movie?
On the final day of Supanova Brisbane last month the friendly folks at Ultima Java came by and asked me to talk into the camera a bit about anything I wanted.
So, I chose to talk about the clubs you need to join and the permissions you need to get from people before you can make a webcomic.
God DAMN it Sony will you hurry up and make a new one of these I would even buy a PlayStation 3 for it.
I guess there’s no room in today’s world for games that rely on charm, wit and inventiveness instead of blood and gore and being a pretend army man.
Poor little Frogger, he’s got a high score but never scores.
As a game designer I look at Superman with immense dread. I hope I never have to make a Superman game. He is the complete opposite of how you make a video game character – he is invulnerable and has, like, every power ever. You’re basically reduced to covering every enemy with Kyrptonite and introducing arbitrary time limits on everything since they’re the only two things he can’t handle, and even they’re not as formidable as they once were.
I love the character as a comic reader, though. I was obsessed with the John Byrne reboot at the time and they were a bunch of great simple Superman stories where Superman fought bad guys. Have you read a Superman comic lately? Sheeesh. What a mess. Time for another reboot…
(I’m still not getting any better at drawing the guy, though)
I feel bad about this one because Peanuts is not crap it is AWESOME but you gotta be ruthless in this dog eat dog world of comics.
You know, there just aren’t enough comics about wife beating drunks out there these days.
(I will admit to this comic influencing how I draw glasses of liquid to this day though)
I really hate this comic. It’s never about being cavemen, it’s always some stupid bumper sticker saying the cartoonist saw while shopping at Tescos the day before like “Never count your chickens before they’re hatched” or some thinly veiled religious claptrap. Go away B.C. you are a stupid comic.
(Actually if they’re talking about Jesus all the time the comic is literally called BEFORE CHRIST?)
