That sounds alot like campers in Halo 3. All I want to do is take a rocket launcher or several stickys to them. I die before anything happens though. When people are of that mindset it doesn't matter what crutch they think they have to use to help them "win" the game. There is no convincing or surprising them. They just think they're good because they "win" all the time. The real winners are those that are successful and conquer the game as it was intended. Everyone else just sucks and found a shortcut. I suck, but at least I try to win the good way. All I try to do is at least score once. Then I can get blown apart and die for the rest of the game. The reason is when I kill you, and I suck, it doesn't matter how many kills you had before hand. It mean's yoru straight back to zero and have to kill me again. Otherwise your gonna let a sucky player beat you. And ya, some of them do play like that. That's why I like playing with "real" players.

Yes pretty much all I can say is play L4D with friends only, Rox. It's not that difficult to find 3 buddies online to play if you've been networking even a little over in publics for a while. One tends to create a userlist of sane, friendly people pretty fast.

I am not saying LOL GET FRIENDS LOL to insult you. Just letting you know that whatever game L4D2 turns out to be, it will not be griefer-proof and you'll still be getting killed by people not respecting your time in the game. Co-op games need friends, not randomers.

Normally I'm of the "pay for what's in the box" mentality, but Valve promised to offer bug and content updates for L4D, referencing the support they've given to TF2. I hope they don't consider the one tiny level they recently released to be a fulfillment of that promise, especially considering the extensive updates they've given to TF2. As long as they continue to fix bugs and maybe add a campaign for L4D, I don't care what they do with the sequel. Make it a "horror" game in broad daylight with frying pans and fiddle music for all I care... oh wait.
Sadly, I don't see much reason for them to expand on the original after the sequel is released(or even prior), as it would be counter-productive.

Co-op fps with friends is the crown jewel of computer gaming. Screw everything  else. Even Tetris.

Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory was awesome because you HAD to co-op with randomers if you wished to get any points and upgrade yourself. Lonely wolves found themselves being not only lonely but very low level after a couple of maps.

Square design is so meh... it's the main reason I can't play my DS for more than half an hour -- cramps the hell out of my hand. Also, just be wary. You might want try to find an in-depth review that checks out compatibility and such.

Also, pity it doesn't support GB. I'm curious how they handle the many different resolutions, though. Should post your personal experience with it when you try it out, though.

Hold off on buying that thing. It's actually just a black Dingoo A320, which is a chinese handheld with emulators preloaded. There are huge problems with it right now, but the user community is kinda growing, so it might turn out okay. Not the moment to buy it yet though.

SNES emulation is pretty awful for starters and "pressing Y and B at the same time doesn't work, we call this a feature"

So yeah, some great guy is porting Linux and it promises to be excellent to fix the awful standard emulators and such, but it's still miles away. Right now he's got the kernel loading and if you're a decent linux guy, you can get some games ported on it already, but it's going to take a while to get it working on all the different hardware versions.

I'm rambling. Point is, it's not good... yet.

I'm going to buy one though, once it matures a bit and still exists.

Aw that's a bummer, I checked out some reviews for the A320, and the buttons sound good though.
It looks like it has the power for the emulators to run at full speed, they were just rush jobs, once the community comes out with a nice snes emu I'll be buying I think

Apparently the look, feel and insides of the hardware are perfect, so yeah, here's hoping the userbase gets it fixed up good. I want one.

I flipped a page from my sketchbook today to find what I've been suspecting - that my drawings slant. It looks like someone stretches the top right corner of some drawings up. Here you can see it on some of the faces, specifically the portrait, armored goblin, and bald dude. It's flipped so I could see it.

It's kind of embarrassing to think that I've been oblivious to what must be obvious to most people.

It isn't terribly obvious to me. If you hadn't pointed it out I probably wouldn't have noticed.

Actually. I just flipped it again and it looked way more skewed. Very weird...

Atnas most artists I know naturally tend to draw with a slant. It's something that always must be fought against but the fact that you are able to recognize it is a good thing.

You are not alone!111111 My drawings slant so much it's not even remotely fun! Goddamnit. Sadness. Drawing things like faces from the front is more or less impossible for me, it just seems to be embedded in my pen/cil strokes or something! It's horrible.

Anyone seen the new trailer for Brutal Legend? It's Tim Schaefer's(DOTT, Full Throttle, Psychonauts, and more) new game and it looks pretty hilarious. I'm not a big fan of Jack Black or Heavy Metal so I wasn't sure what to think of this, but the new trailer won me over. I had a look through a gameplay video, and although it looks a bit underwhelming, I've found I can count on the story/humour/characters of a Tim Schaefer game to carry me through any lackluster gameplay issues. Hopefully it ends up on Steam at some point at a similar price point as Psychonauts.

I slant alllll the time.  Actually, what I usually do (which is probably bad) is I unconsciously tilt my drawing surface so it straightens out.  Also I have a crooked personality  ;D :D :-X
lol @ jjnaas and helm.  That would be a good activity.  And JJNaas' av was bugging me, I like helms edit.  And I like teh noms.

I tilt more than I slant.  When the page is rotated counter-clockwise (about 5-10 degrees usually), things are generally in OK proportion.  It's a similar problem though and hell when working in a frame...

in my sketchbook things like buildings and characters (anything which needs to hit the ground solid) almost always have a cross added after the initial sketching that shows the drawing's orientation (usually like i said a few degrees behind the page).

Yeah, the movies weren't quite as good as the show, I think it mainly came down to the format, but it seemed like they were testing the market and I have no problem supporting them.

Hopefully this time the show sticks.

I figured it's about time I took a real initiative to improve my drawing skills, and I thought I'd ask here if anyone knows any good resources online or offline. My skills right now aren't completely non-existant, but I don't quite know if there's somewhere preferable I should start. I dunno, general advice always help, so if anyone got any ideas, I'm all ears.

I'm not sure of your age, but to start off try "Fun With a Pencil" by Andrew Loomis. You can't find it in stores, but there's a billion people hosting it and his other books online now. FWAP is Loomis' first book and doesn't go into much detail on correct human anatomy and the stuff comes across as pretty cartoony. The point of the book is to get you thinking of the body as 3d dimensional shapes. My first time through I sort of glanced at a couple pages, drew some stuff and then headed onto the next book because it had all the anatomy stuff I wanted. I only realised recently that I really missed the point and I've since gone back to FWAP. There's probably some good info to be found in the Official Anatomy thread so have a look there if you haven't.

I'm 22, I'll check out the book if I can find it. I've been trying before to study anatomy and drawing it, but I believe I could benefit more from it if I knew more "basic techniques", sorta (Guess I'm a bit afraid of starting in the wrong place). So yeah, starting from the bottom and going up. I lurk alot and read all new threads and replies, so I'm familiar with that thread, it's a good one :)

Cool, I'm the same age. I've had the same desire since last summer to really learn the basics, so I've kinda shelved the pixels and been concentrating on my pencils. The Loomis series is really great for that and I enjoy them a lot. If you aren't already checking it out, conceptart.org has a fantastic atmosphere for artists looking to improve. If you want to PM me your email I'll send you some links to art threads and articles I've found interesting. It's got some book recommendations as well.

Ahahaha just came across this.

Garfield Minus Garfield



Garfield Minus Garfield is a site dedicated to removing Garfield from the Garfield comic strips in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle. It is a journey deep into the mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb.


I have always found the Garfield comics pretty depressing but couldn't quite pinpoint the source directly at John.  This confirms it.  Garfield is just the fat lasagna fiending apparition that haunts his mind as reality.
Thanks Mush, adcrusher524, Ego, and iLKke!

Long time reader at Conceptart.org, it's an amazing site filled with not only skilled people, but nice people too. If you have time to email me those links that'd be fantastic, I'll send you my email.

Neat app for changing your Windows bootscreen

XP only allows for a 16 colour 640x480 image, so it's a good opportunity to display some pixel art
Pretty simple too, all I did was paste my image over C:\Program Files\Stardock\WinCustomize\BootSkin\skins\TimeWarp\warp.bmp, run the app and select the warp theme.
You can create your own themes but that's the easy/lazy way to do it.

Sadly, it seems as though Windows will resize that image with bilinear filtering, which will just blur it. At least, that's what my windows logo looks like when my XP boots up.

Is your image 640x480?
Mine isn't stretched or anything, and I'd assume if you used a smaller image it would just be given black borders.

I'm finally 18! Ahh, strong alchoholic beverages, drugs, drivers liscence. Thousands of new ways to potentially kill myself!

Happy birthday, Opacus!  You only get one more landmark age birthday in your life that gives you more 'liberties', then after that they're the stereotypical closer to death ones.  Enjoy!

HI JJNAAS I FIXED YOUR AVATAR



That's awesome. The least I can do is return the favor:



These two made me laugh-snort-cry and should be immortalized somewhere. Also we finally have an Xbox360 of our own with GoW 1&2. Same username as here. Feel free to pwn me, but if my Su is playing too be sure to fall down and pretend she got you or she'll stop playing with me, and whatever you do don't run away - or move around much, she still gets dizzy watching FPS games. >_<

Also HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Opacus - but what landmark birthday comes after 18 with more liberties when he's already got booze & cars? A mid-life crisis one someplace?
Now reading: Animator's Survival Kit, Drawing On The Right Side Of The Brain, Fun With A Pencil. No time to pixel!

Well I suppose it only applies as an American, when they let you accrue your very own alcohol legally at 21.
