I find this incredibly stupid.
This is the trailer for "Sonic 4".
And this is a recently made FAN depiction of what a next gen Sonic game could look like.
After nearly 2 months in the USA, I'm finally heading home to Perth, Western Australia. It's been a rather great trip, a little bit more relaxed then last year.. But still fun regardless!
At the start of the trip I attended Anime-Expo, which was just a bit of silly fun. I'm not terribly interested in Anime, but hell it's just something fun to do with friends. After that I spent most of my time in Burbank, with Egoraptor, Jaxxy, Tomamoto and Suzy. I got to watch Ego do a lot of random animation shit. I was also standing next to him as he recorded the lines for War for Awesometron.
One night I had a dinner with some friends where we jokingly had the idea to make Vuvu Hero. At the time the world cup was still in full swing. I started doing the graphics and everything, but after a bit of convincing I managed to get ChannelCat working on it with me. I'm extremely happy that my first flash game, even being it as sarcastic as it is.. Was received so well. I was even recently told that Kotaku did an article on the game, which was very flattering! Due to other obligations, we weren't able to get the game out till the day after Comic-Con. Which kind of sucked because I really wanted to get the game out during the world cup. Oh well! We're planning another game right now, so far I like it. I don't really want to say anything about it just yet though!
Comic-Con was fun. I found myself doing much more exploring and panel shit then I usually do, so I didn't really get to talk to many people. Sorry about that. It was still really fun though.. I did miss out on a lot it seems. A bunch of my friends got into the world premiere of "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World", which I was uber jealous over. Though I think I'm seeing that a few hours after arriving back home.. COOL BEANS.
Oh yeah and our friend Faye aka Princess Aurora is going to be staring in a reality TV series called "WCG Ultimate Gamer". Faye has been doing voice acting here on NG for many years now, she's really good.. So yeah, get her to do stuff. Before shes too famous.
Anyways, I don't know why you're reading this. I'm basically just typing a bunch of shit to keep myself awake. I'm doing an all nighter so I can burn myself out and fall asleep on the plane for the 13 hour flight to Melbourne from here. Yep. Anyway. Uh. Egoraptor, ChannelCat and Princess Aurora are seeing me off at LAX in 6 hours. What fun. Well not really. It's kinda sucky to be leaving. OH WELL. Yeah. So whatever. TIME ZONES ARE SHIT.
How has your day been?
I've been in California for the past few weeks and I've been having a blast. I went to Comic-Con recently, which was rather fun. Bit more hectic then usual, but still enjoyable. Sadly I didn't get to see much of everyone, spent a lot of my time just walking around by myself and chillaxing. Sorry if I didn't get a chance to talk to you!
Also me and my friend Mike recently released a goofy little game called Vuvu Hero. It kind of went under the radar on release because we had some huuuuge problems with compatibility issues.. So the game wasn't working properly for a loooot of people. But we've managed to fix that, though we still get the odd complaint. If it doesn't work for you, update your flash player (some people have even suggested trying Chrome).
I'm leaving to head on home to Australia in 10 days, which is depressing to think about. Hopefully I'll be moving here next year, we shall see!
Also myself and ChannelCat have started on a new game. I'm not going to say much about it.. Other then that it has online multiplayer and it may more may not have something to do with this Crab.
Also Gameoverse 5 is out. View it here!
ITS BROKEN APPARENTLY. It'll be back up tonight.
I have no idea what the problem is with the menu. It seems to be working for everyone on our end. We'll look at it tonight, I suppose.
It seems that if you can't get past the menu, you NEED TO UPDATE YOUR FLASH PLAYER.
I'm currently collaborating with my friend Channelcat to create a flash game called "Vuvu Hero". We all know how much you miss the World Cup, so we're creating a Vuvuzela simulation game. The aim of the game is to ruin perfectly good songs with this amazing instrument, whilst attaining note streaks which reward you score multipliers.
The game is already quite far along (more so then the picture posted below), so we're looking for songs to be included in the game. We already have quite a few songs, but we'd like to get more of a Newgrounds musician presence in the game. Preferably we're looking for songs with lyrics. If they're humorous, that's a big plus. Even if it's a theme for a cartoon series you've made, we're totally fine with that. The Girlchan theme is already a part of the lineup. So if you're mad enough to let us butcher your song in this horrible game, then please shoot me a PM. We plan to get it out next sometime next week. We of course will link back to where ever you request within the games track listing.
My local friends Luis and Bec recently entered a competition called "Trash my Ad". Basically they had to produce a short advertisement to raise awareness for littering. You guys might remember Luis for his animation "Legend of Miyamoto" and "Legend of Miyamoto 2". I'm not sure if Bec has any of her work posted here yet though (but she's really fucking good).
I'd really appreciate if you guys could quickly drop a vote or two for their submission. I think you can vote as many times as you like.. The system seems kinda unbalanced to begin with.
I'll be attending the Los Angeles Anime-Expo in a few days with Egoraptor, Tomamoto, Jaxxy, Suzy, Channel Cat and Princess Aurora. We'll be there for the first 3 days, then we'll be off celebrating the 4th of July elsewhere. Should be good fun! If you see me there, come say hello!
I've been in America for a week now and it's been awesome, really enjoying myself. Looking at a school next week, I'll hopefully be aiming to do my Bachelors here next year.
I also brought my CINTIQ with me, so if I can get it to work again on my laptop I'll spend my spare time animating. I've been having problems with it, hopefully I'll get it to work again. If anyone knows where to get the installation instruction PDF for a CINTIQ 12WX that'd be a great help.. I use to have it and now I just haven't been able to get a hold of it, even from their site. I think I've forgotten a vital step, but I can't remember what it was. Installing as a display device or something? Shit I don't remember, it's been ages.
On a random note I played Blur and loved it. Also I'm hopefully going to play War for Cybertron in the next few days. Anyone played it yet? What did you think so far?
Just chilling at Tomar, Jaxxy, Suzy and Egos place. Defeated jet lag in one night, so I'm pretty stoked about that. Woo!
I don't know what I'm going to do though today.
If you're looking for me, I'm probably on a plane. :D
The Sony one is starting soon..ish?
Anyways, I leave for LA on Friday. Quite excited :)!
