How would I fix The LEGO Movie Videogame?

Posted by McJobless , in Other 14 April 2014 · 84 views

(Warning: Spoilers for The LEGO Movie ahead)

http://i.imgur.com/g1FlmrX.png

As a studying game developer, this kind of challenge is important, and I'm glad somebody asked me to do it. Being able to identify weak areas and have solutions to try resolve the issues is important. Therefore, let me make a few suggestions that I think would improve the ga...

My Character Flaws

Posted by McJobless , in General Information 31 March 2014 · 141 views

I went ahead and made that Creativity topic in LEGO General a few minutes ago. It's been on my mind for years, but only now have I really thought the problem as a significant issue. Anyways, sometime after writing the topic, I went ahead and did some chores, and it got me thinking about some of the other problems I've been facing within myself...and poten...

Fourth-ward March.

Posted by McJobless , in Rock Raiders United 27 March 2014 · 241 views

I totally didn't even plan that pun 4 years ago.

So. 27/03/2014. Heh. Never really thought I'd make it this far without dying by train, being sent to a loony bin or wasting away on alcohol. And while those things have all been pretty close to happening, here I still am.

The Austrexican Lives. The Pants Enforcers reigns supreme.

4 years ago, I found a l...

QW: Why Legend of Zelda is already one of my favourite games.

Posted by McJobless , in Quick-Writes 09 March 2014 · 187 views

This is a entry in my "Quick-Write" series. Basically, just some minor thoughts quickly thrown into a blog entry as a kind of progress update on how I'm doing.



Anyone familiar to Creative Theory on RRU or the Skype chats would know that Jamesster's been doing a lot of LoZ stuff recently. He found that brilliant essay, and recently he's been playing the...

Apparently I Need to Fire Myself

Posted by McJobless , 07 March 2014 · 131 views

Ohboy. It's Spam Message of the Day time. I removed the link at the end, since I sure as hell don't trust it.



MESSAGE TITLE: Why you should fire your boss

Hey there,

Ezekiel here again.

I want to PROVE to you why my Forex 3-day webinar on 9th, 10th & 11th April 2014 is going to be life-changing.

Can We Talk About How Terrible Java Is?

Posted by McJobless , 19 February 2014 · 237 views

It's a useless pile of s***.

The f****ing thing won't work correctly on my sister's machine, and barely runs correctly on mine. The main problem on my sister's machine is that it keeps deleting the core .exe files. Java.exe, javaw.exe and a few others are constantly deleted anytime you try to run a Java app after installation. Putting copies of these fil...

Life is an interesting beast.

"And remember, the universe has a wonderful sense of humor. The trick is learning how to take a joke. "
~ Orvus, Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time

Life is one of those insane things that happens.

It's like, there for years, and then it's taken away. It's pretty crazy. And the older I get, the more I look on it and think about what life really, trul...

The End of an Era

Posted by McJobless , in Other, General Information 12 December 2013 · 271 views

It feels. Empty.

The closing of the old Quotes topic, is rather fitting, given another thing that happened today. Had the Quotes topic not closed, I probably wouldn't even have posted this update, due to the CoS that arrived to wreck havoc on the forums. But, in the weird way that the world works, it's best to talk about it.

For those that don't know, t...

Wot I Fink: Video Gaming

Posted by McJobless , in Wot I Fink 31 August 2013 · 330 views

Original post with comments that clarify some of what I've said: http://www.steamgift...rash/page/31337

I don't like the gaming industry as it is. Everything sucks. AAA is less about trying to take chances on making something incredible and more about pleasing the lowest common denominator, of which ma...

Wot I Fink: Stories in Gaming

Posted by McJobless , in Wot I Fink 02 July 2013 · 274 views

One of the biggest problems I come across in gaming is story. It's a tricky element to get right, and people are both going to want it or going to hate it. The biggest problem is that if you go for a story, you either have to keep it basic as a way to establish why the player is in the game in first place (I call this the "Call to Suspension" trick), or i...

Game Survey Results Are IN!

Sorry about the wait guys. The results from that survey are finally here, so do have a look through the raw data.

Wot I Fink: Copying

Posted by McJobless , in Wot I Fink 31 May 2013 · 328 views

*sigh* Peer pressure.
http://i0.kym-cdn.co...22/c6f.gif  I'm going to be honest. A certain part of me has been both laughing and cringing at the recent influx of members who have taken to the blogs to express their feelings after certain events transpired (and a lot of me didn't want to acknowledge it with a Wot I Fink). How...

Wot I Fink: Family

Posted by McJobless , in General Information, Other, Rock Raiders United, Wot I Fink 25 May 2013 · 427 views

I never thought I'd have to do this kind of entry, but my feelings on the matter are quite high, and I think I have some explaining to do. I'm sorry in advance. Hopefully it will never come to this again.

I remember first joining RRU. It was just before dinner on a school night, all the way back in 2010. I had just gone through my emails (this was my se...

How to create my old signature.

Just in case you ever wondered. One day I'll rebuild this, but it'll look cleaner and with different images.

Wot I Fink: Games shouldn't be called "Games"?

Posted by McJobless , in Wot I Fink 19 May 2013 · 353 views

We're only three episodes in, but I'm sure everybody is already clambering over each other to slit my throat. Nonetheless, opinions must be shared. There's plenty on my mind, and I want to share it all. That said, looking over this argument, my brain is a little too scattered to note if I've forgotten anything, which I probably have. There will probably b...

Wot I Fink: Women in Gaming - In-Game

Posted by McJobless , in Wot I Fink 13 May 2013 · 265 views

NOTE: For now, I just wanted to put out a couple ideas on my stance. I also only covered women in actual games. Another time I'll go more in-depth with more examples and talk about the women who surround gaming.

I've rewritten this argument so many times I've lost count. Every time I attempted to write it, I always came off as hypocritical or plain mad,...

Wot I Fink: Modesty and Maturity

Posted by McJobless , in Wot I Fink 12 May 2013 · 755 views

NOTE: For this episode, when I say "Modesty", I mean it in a professional, clean sense. People being modest, for example, "I'm terrible at singing" when they actually are really talented, is totally acceptable to me, and supposedly I am very modest in that sense of the word in real life.

I wanted to start off talking about women in gaming, but Tracker pu...

Wot I Fink: Introductions

Posted by McJobless , in Wot I Fink 11 May 2013 · 144 views

They always suck.

But seriously, from now on, Wot I Fink is a new segment I'll be writing every once in a while with my opinion on an issue in the world, mostly covering gaming. Issues you can expect me to dump on:
Sexism in gaming
Casual Games/Gamers
Nintendo/EA/Ubisoft
Story vs Gameplay vs Graphics
Indie Developers
New Technologies (like the Oculus Rif...

I really don't understand this.

I got this spam message the other day, and I was hoping it would be something at least barely intelligeable for me to pick on...I was lied to. Simply called "The best DISH offer EVER!!!", it reads:
