I just got myself FOUR (4) Copies of Torchlight on STEAM. The awesome indie dungeon crawl lootfest by the amazingly talented crew over at Runic Games. It is for PC and MAC.
With Torchlight 2 coming out soon this is the perfect time to see why I am so excited for the sequel.
I’m going to give 2 copies away here on tumblr, and two on twitter.
Since this is the tumblscape I will do one of those ever so annoying contests where you can like and/or reblog for a point. I’ll end this sucker at ooohhhh? 10PM PST Tomorrow?
A select few characters from the Mega Man Universe, including Mega Man himself, get a female redesign in deviantARTist dcwj’s fan art illustration. This was created for last years Asiagraph Mega Man.
Heh, Mega Woman! And ProtoWoman! You know, I think the designs look well for woman characters. I know this isn’t the first time this concept has ever been suggested or done, but I must say, I find this to look really good. I also find it interesting that Roll’s hands clearly look mechanical when they usually don’t, and look like they have ‘skin.’
It looks like the only other change is IceWoman. ;3 Boy…BombMan looks….kinda beefy.
Here are the three sprites i made yesterday - didn’t come out too bad. These are for a new shirt design i should have up later today :)
Ha ha, these are cool! I’ve wanted to try pixel art before, and I’ve looked up ways to do it, but….ugh, I don’t think I have the knack for it. Maybe I’ll try again, some day.

Well, it’s too late to get the shirt now, but I love the art work!
IDEA FOR A VIDEO GAME
A Paper Mario-style RPG… wherein the princesses of two different kingdoms get word that the other princess needs to be rescued, and they simultaneously set out to rescue… each other.
Like how Paper Mario would switch between the viewpoints of Mario and Peach, this game would switch between the two princesses, culminating in the final chapter where it’s revealed they were tricked into being captured by…. another princess! Or something like that
I’d play the shit out of this.
That actually sounds really good. I’d love to see a game like that made!
My comic, Incongruous Gears, has been updated! Check it out!
Here we have Comic the 6th! Welcome!
So yeah, Infamous….sure was a game. As indicated here, I didn’t play it myself, but I watched it being played. These terrible, terrible jokes honestly wrote themselves. It really was that easy. And oh yes, Alex felt the pain, and he did surely suffer greatly.
I’m sure they will never regret my presence here.
[In case you’re not aware by chance, Infamous is a PS3 game in which your character, Cole McGrath, gains strong electricity-based powers, and can do things such as fire bolts, drain generators, and ride along powerlines and rails, as mentioned in the comic.]
Very little digital enhancing or edits on this page! I’m honestly pretty happy with it; it’s pretty clean, really, and I like how the line art flows, for the most part. What I will probably do with all the pages though is slightly adjust them so that they are easier to see, as I did here. That was it, really.
More next Tuesday!
Figma’s Armored Samus - Available for Pre-Order
(via: Super Punch)
THAT IS AWESOME. Check out the site for a Zero-Suit Samus, too! Purrrrrrrrrrr…. <3
Here’s a short-ish article about Xenogears, specifically in defense of the game’s infamous second disc. A lot of those who played it out-and-out hated the second disc, and thus, ruined most of their overall view of the game, period. This is because, *Le Gasp Magnifique* there was talking in the second disc, and a lot of it early on! Wow, you mean there’s an actual story in this game?? And it goes down pretty and deep and winding?? What kind of shit is this?!
The writer here defends the game though; “Some found this disjointing; I found it refreshing. After 50-something hours of the JRPG formula, it was nice to change things up a bit….a series of scenes that skipped all the gameplay in favor of talking heads and pictures. It was energizing, a much-needed triple espresso shot just when I was about to doze off and stop playing.”[emphasis added]
I don’t agree with the ‘about to doze off’ part; I never felt that way while playing. I do agree that I liked this change too, especially because I found the story so fascinating, and I was really invested in it. I wanted to keep going until the very end, so longer story segments here were okay with me. It may not be a format that’s best or appropriate for every game, no, although notice that games are becoming more ‘cinematic’ and have a lot more exposition now. For Xenogears, I thought this worked though.
I really do love Xenogears; it’s one of my favorite games ever, and I highly recommend it. Yeah, it has its faults, like needless leveling (as is common in a lot of JRPGs), and some of the hardest boss battles you’ll come across (my blood pressure rises at least a little bit every time I see or hear the name ‘Miyang’…Ah, there it goes now…). Still, I call it an overlooked classic. It’s on the Playstation Network now! Get it. Get it now, if you don’t have it. Do eeeeeeet.
