What is your favourite colour? Do you have any pets? Favourite video game? Your worst enemy on this forums?
I have no pets, unless now deceased Sea Monkeys count. I really wish I had a kitty though.
For singleplayer, it's Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow on the GBA. It's just everything I love about video games in one neat little package. I've played all the other metroidvanias in the series and AoS is still my favorite, there's just something I love about the atmosphere and music and the fact that it's on GBA rather than PS1 or DS. I'm a big fan of small sprites, I think it's so much more appealing when the artists manage to squeeze the same lifelike feel into less pixels. It's all the sidescrolling brainless hack & slash action I've ever wanted, mixed with just enough subtle RPG elements to make it feel significant to keep slashing through enemies as you run through the castle rather than just running past them.
For multiplayer, it's pretty hard for me to pick seeing as my tastes have really been evolving. I have a lot of good memories playing Call of Duty World at War on Xbox (don't hurt me), it's the game that got me to love shooters. My favorite FPS is probably Battlefield: Bad Company 2, it's a perfect blend of run & gun and teamwork. You can go off on your own without constantly getting raped by helicopters and jets like the older BF games, but playing as a team is still heavily rewarded. I have been losing interest in shooters lately, though. Ever since I started playing League of Legends I haven't really been able to play much other than those dota clone games, and I recently made the switch from LoL to Dota 2, so I guess I could say that's my favorite multiplayer game at the moment.
He is no longer with us, but Skye for making me feel self conscious about making edited screencap pixel rule 34
I jest though, there's really nobody here I have anything against.
How do your eyes make people feel? Which Glee character are you?
What is melodeath? It sounds like death metal but... melodic? Melodramatic? If you listen to death metal soap opera soundtracks, I don't even know what to think.
What exactly are you learning about vidyogams? You're studying to become a game designer, right?
Who's your favourite pony based on 1.5 episodes and fans having "NO THIS PONY IS BETTER" fights?
What's your favourite kid's cartoon?
What's your address, full name, social insurance number, and blood type?
Who's your favourite furry artist?
Yakkers who do you have a crush on
You are correct sir, it's melodic death metal. Rather than mindless fast drum pounding and brainless angry lyrics, it's got a more slow and chugging sound to it with actual melodic drum patterns (rather than the Slayer style kick snare kick snare kick snare that I hate so much), paired with a more powerful and emotional mood and lyrics instead of just angry and fast and heavy. It's quite nice.
My major calls itself "game development," it's pretty much just a computer science major with a little more emphasis on graphics and a bit of design stuff tossed in. Thus far, my only major related classes have been general C++ courses and a few art classes. I'm always pretty self conscious about it because most people don't take game majors very seriously, but I've been doing this stuff on my own for years now and I know it's my thing. I say this because I know a lot of people think "I like video games, I'll go learn to make them!" and then they stop having fun once they realize it involves math and drop out. I can assure you I am not one of those people.
I know she's everyone's favorite, but I'd probably say rainbow dash. I've always liked that tomboy character archetype in cartoons growing up, and from what I can understand the appeal of this whole thing is that it (somehow) makes me feel what cartoons used to make me feel rather than just having me remember and miss that feeling, so there you go. Plus I like her colors hurrggfdgf I'm faggot
Ed, Edd, & Eddy all the way. But before I got into that, it was Dexter's Lab.
I'd also have to throw Hamtaro in there somewhere.
Hard to pick one, but I say this guy named Itadakicat, who unfortunately doesn't really draw anymore.
Here's a fun Cave Story related sample! Yay! http://i.imgur.com/SmSP7.jpg
Also route9 but I'm not linking anything because they're all very not safe for work
I get lots of fleeting ones irl, but I have to ignore pretty much all of them.
mind expanding on this a bit?
like, classes you're taking, if you're enjoying it etc.
do you like the animes?
also what's your favourite genre of music and vidya?
Fab asked a similar question so you can read about the program itself above, and yes, I'm enjoying it so far. I like that it's taking the programming side seriously and teaching us a real language instead of using silly game engines and such.
I've never been too big on anime, mostly because I lack the attention span to watch entire series when I'm given the freedom to watch as many episodes whenever I want, as often as I want. If it was something aired on a set TV schedule, I could probabaly stick with it more. I've never finished any series, but I liked what I've seen of Wolf's Rain and Gurren Lagan.
I mentioned melodic death metal, but to go into more detail on the electronic side I'm pretty into electro-industrial and aggrotech.
More fun samples!http://www.youtube.c...h?v=B2iuuFEqE3Mhttp://www.youtube.c...h?v=5XgcRBRNWsI
I like first person shooters for both mutliplayer and singleplayer, shmups, and pretty much any action games with RPG elements. Also moba/arts/whatever the hell they're called
Favorite video game console?
Coolest looking are in Cave Story (in your opinion)?
Favorite kind of soda, or any drink?
What do you do when you're bored as hell?
What do you consider a late time to go to bed?
If you had to be blind or deaf, what would you choose?
What was the happiest moment in your childhood?
Gameboy Advance, I love 2D and a lot of my favorite games have been on the good old GBA.
My favorite sodas are store brand diet colas and Mountain Dew Pitch Black, and in the non-carbonated department my favorite drink is that Arnold Palmer stuff. It somehow manages to be the most refreshing liquid possible on the planet when you're extremely thirsty and it's ice cold. I'm also a pretty big energy drink junkie, I used to be really into Monster but now I'm more into Full Throttle and Rockstar, with the occasional low carb Monster thrown in.
When I'm bored as hell, I usually put headphones and start blasting music and see where things go from there. It usually leads me to playing some kind of time sink multiplayer game. Usually Dota 2 as of late, because it's always sitting there on my desktop looking pretty and making me want to hear more of that lovely gold clanging last hit sound and drink in more delicious draining health bar action and fuuuuck make it stop
Any time after 4 AM is late in my books. I shoot for between 3 and 4.
Dayum, that's a hard one. I think I'd go deaf, it would hurt to sacrifice music but I'd rather lose that than vidya gaems and purrty nature views.
Hmm. I honestly can't remember too many specific happy moments. I guess I could say any year I went to visit my family in California, we used to go every summer but I haven't gone in maybe five or six years. I loved it so much when I was younger that I'd cry for days when I got back. It just wouldn't be the same these days without my childhood glee and without my grandparents around.
Why do you not hang out with us all the time? We have servers up frequently and we'd love to have you play with us some time D:
What's your favorite type of music?
What's a skill you wish you had?
I really don't have a reason for that, because honestly I'd love to be doing more with you folks. I guess I feel a little out of the loop seeing as I don't really keep up with the forums as much as the rest of you. Plus I never really got to know any of you on a one on one basis, which is also something I'd love to do. ;w; Also, servers for what? I'm guessing Terraria for one, and I don't play that all too much because I hardly know anything about the game and I don't have any characters with any nice gear so it's kind of hard for me to play on actual servers. A few times in the past I've played on fresh servers with everyone using fresh characters and that was a lot of fun, so I'd love to do that sometime if anyone else would be up for it. It's Summer, I don't have much better to be doing.
I'm happy to play pretty much any other game I own though, I wasn't aware we had regular servers for much else.
I've got a few links to the electronic stuff I like above, so I'll use this as an opportunity to give some linked samples of my tastes on the metal side.http://www.youtube.c...h?v=LzjW--KUH1ghttp://www.youtube.c...h?v=xhjF48xGnm0http://www.youtube.c...h?v=wUdbr1qSn-s
Those happen to be my three favorite songs of all time, in no particular order.
And for that, I really, really wish I could draw better. More specifically, I wish I could draw people and animals. I like to think I'm decent at drawing objects and architectural things, but I almost have a fear of drawing anything alive. I've practically never even tried it before. It feels like I'm creating false life when I draw a character and it looks off, which gets me feeling all shameful and I end up giving up and erasing it as quickly as possible.
I'd give anything to be able to do nice little simple sketches of mimimgas being adorable.
