I'd be embarrassed to say something so mean.

"I'd be embarrassed to even claim that I made this game =x"

Is that why you haven't made anything?

This looks interesting. Downloading...

I would download the demo but I have no idea how big it is.. and with very limited quota this is a problem. I stopped downloading after 50mb. Can someone tell me how big the demo download size is?

Demo is 135mb.

Thanks for the feedback, all.
I've learned a lot of lessons during development, and after release of this game. It's had mixed reviews, thankfully mostly favourable.

But I don't think I'll attempt to develop something like this again. Just too hard for my wee little brain. A lot of quality has been affected while trying to do most of it myself - too many shortcuts had to be taken to preserve any remaining sanity I have. Hehe

But I'm glad it's out now, and after a break I'll get back to work on episode two. With improvements in mind.

Hehe, yeah like how I did that?

Well, The following episodes for this title are already under way, and most of the 'programming' is there. I just won't start a New project the same way.

It'll be interesting to see the day you finally submit something (if that will ever happen that is), since you're setting the standard way beyond anything even reasonable, so you're actually just building up the flaming of the century since you won't be even near those standards to start with. Ha ha!

You only talk, you know that? So instead of you being here, go ahead and lurk for another ten years and come back when you've actually done something to back up your ridiculous attitude.

@RD: Great work! Downloading...

it's gamesterxii, why do you people bother replying ?
Posted by Eternal Man [EE] 18th December, 2010

Since GamesterXIII is not a usual troll, he ACTUALLY THINKS he is that good, and thus won't stop behaving like the biggest douche if ignored, like usual trolls.

But you're quite right anyway, why bother? TDC is getting more and more douches anyways, and THE ADMINS very seldom speak up in any of all the forum-wanking going on. So again, why bother?
It's much easier to give ol' TDC a big F*** OFF for xmas instead of voicing the fact that abusive a**es won't stop being abusive a**es even if you give them all the room in the world.
I just think it sucks.

I like the demo. My only gripe was that I could not use my joypad.

Posted by Johnny Look 18th December, 2010

I don't think he really thinks he's able to do something even close to this, he's just the average troll who posts inflammatory comments in order to get a reaction.

Thing is the admins are allowing him to do so. 90% of the threads or newsposts he replies to end up in a flamewar, yet no one does a thing.

He even took the time to send me a pm calling me idiot out of the blue, which apparently doesn't qualify as "abusing other members" (as it is in the site rules), and nothing was done about it either which is puzzling to say the least, specially considering he already had a warning before that.

Before he appeared out of nowhere this community was really pleasant to be in, with very few to no fights and everyone acting mature.

Ever since he felt like making his presence felt this turned into a constant battle field.

But well whatever, I surely won't lose any more of my time with this, just let him to do whatever he wants, I'll be in the background watching the fireworks.

So it comes down the lesser of two evils, eh?

Make the decision that someone is a troll and silence them, and have the hordes rain down on you for abusing power.

Or just moderate the extreme insults and have people claim you're not doing your job.

You're right, EE. It does suck. TDC has too many of these catch 22s. I believe politics are the main reason people cease being admins here, after all.

By the way, let's not clog up Robert's news post too much.

I don't really get it, so no one bans him because admins are afraid of people complaining you are abusing your powers ?

Moderating the insults won't do much once the harm is done, wouldn't it be much better if the insults weren't there in the first place ?

Don't get me wrong, I don't usually question the admins's decisions, but this is getting seriously out of hand and nothing is being done.

Gamesterxii already had a warning but since then he proceeded to break almost all the rules in this website, from having a nazi avatar, harassing members via pm, causing countless arguments on purpose and so on.

I can't see anyone complaining he was banned unfairly.
Posted by OMC 18th December, 2010

That's a bit of an oversimplification, but fair enough.

If you want to blame someone for "being afraid", pick on me since I'm the one who said that. The other admins may not necessarily agree with my evaluation.

Feel free to address me via DC Mail if you'd like to add something. Let's let this news post be.

I tried the demo. The gameplay seemed a bit ish, but the presentation was very nice. The style kind of reminds me of an old puzzle game called "sanitarium".

As far as Gamester goes, I don't see any reason to care what he has to say. If he's really that great at developing games, awesome, if not, who cares? Either way, it's one thing for him to say some of the stuff he says, and another thing for everyone to blow it out of proportion.

As far as moderating goes, no one is perfect. Of all the swearing I've seen on this site (which I really don't care about), most of which is used in a negative manor towards another member, a majority of which is not moderated, I remember getting warned for swearing in a stupid little joke, which wasn't used in a negative manor. But who cares? The minute you give someone authority over others is the same time you assume they are mature enough to be able to handle that power. And of course most people like to assume that moderators are at all places at all times, which they aren't.
