General / So I got shot at today..
« on: June 23, 2013, 08:52 pm »
We were riding through kansas city (which is mostly in Missouri thats weird) heading to Wyoming on vacation. Anyway we where driving on the interstate an apparently some guy shot at us with 4 bullets and one popped the window and the window shattered. Me being right next to the window was super scared and worried was still in shock. Anyway we pull over and call the police and they said 19 people were shot at last night and two were killed. They also mentioned I was lucky to be alive so yeah. I'm not really in trauma or anything I just thought I let you guys know what happened. Were at the hotel and are about ready to leave so thats why I have internet anyway I'll let you know when we get there. This is matthade2 signing out

General / Going on vacation for a week!
« on: June 22, 2013, 04:18 pm »
I'm heading to Wyoming for a week so I won't be back until early July. I will be back before EGD and I'll still be able to publish my game so I'm not dropping out of EGD. I don't know if we will have internet over there so don't expect me to be on sploder much. As for my affiliation with the sploder video crew and the nexus gameshow I hope you guys will do okay without me for awhile. But don't drop me out just yet. I might do an episode of the sploder show in Wyoming! That should be fun to do. Anyway I just thought I let everybody know and I'll be back soon!

Since I'm now a reviewer I figured I would set this up for anyone who has good PPG (physics puzzle maker games)
games that they want to see reviewed. I promise that I will look at every application and try to review good quality games. So what are you waiting for post your PPG games today!

Rules:
1. I can accept or deny your game if either I can't get far enough or I just don't like your game. Don't argue with my decision.
2. Reviews take time so don't complain if I'm going to review your game and it takes me some time. I want my reviews to be of decent quality and in order for that to happen it will take me awhile.
3. Once the list is full I will not be accepting more applicants
until I have another spot open.

List of games I'm reviewing:
1.

General / I just got my reviewer badge today..
« on: June 17, 2013, 03:10 pm »
Has it always been pink or did they just change it recently?

Anyway yeah I just noticed it today I probably won't be writing any reviews until EGD rolls around then I might try to help out and take a look at some of the ppgs and try to review one of them.

That being said I just thought I let you guys now I'm almost finished with my enormous checklist of things to do. The last thing I have to do is finish my EGD game. Here is the entire list of stuff I've had to do.

Matthade2's list of things to do:
Make a trailer (Finished)
Make 2 posters (Finished)
Send a reviewer application to tbremise
(Finished)
Finish editing a 30 minute podcast
(this one took the longest but finished)
Make another episode of the sploder show for the video crew. (Finished)
Send a recording of my game for the EGD trailer. (Finished)
Make a hype thread for my EGD game
(This one was the easiest so finished)
And finally finish my EGD game
(Not done yet for obvious reasons I just mentioned above.)

So yeah I've kinda been overworked and after the whole EGD thing I plan on relaxing awhile. The bright side to this is that my family vacation is coming up so yay! Sorry for dragging this out to long I just thought I let everyone know whats been going on recently. Now if you excuse me I'm off to work on my EGD game. 
^-^ ^-^ ^-^

General / Ok I need someone to interview for the sploder show!
« on: June 15, 2013, 05:13 pm »
This video will be on my channel and the sploder video crew. But before I can work on the sploder show video I need someone to interview. Here are some requirements.

Requirements:
1. You need to answer my questions via pm as fast as possible. Don't take an eternity.
2. If you've been on the sploder show before I won't accept you sorry!

I'll accept the first person that answers so hurry!

WOOHOO OH MY I GOSH GOT ACCEPTED!!!!!!!
YEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!

Ok so let me explain I post my application and about two months go bye then tbremise shows up saying this:

I'll tell you what, you typed this like my second appliction, which almost made it for me but just barely didn't, Why don't you pm me a separate Application, I will look at it and then let you know if you can be accepted.
I want to see if you will be willing to look at your reviews more than once before pming me, trying to catch as many mistakes as possible. Try to word things differently than you normally would once in a while too. A final word of advice and some complitments, I advice you to maybe just rid yourself of titles for each paragraph, and just have them hinted, it breaks the flow of the read, the compliment, I liked your intro paragraph, not bland like most I've seen.
(So just pm me another, when you get the chance, and pm if you have any questions too.)

so then I send him this epic application via pm:


Snowfall
Reviewed by: Matthade2


  Game design is an alchemy, a mix between an art and a science. It's an enduring craft in one of the most interesting mediums out there. Sure you can make a game by the books adding the right number of enemies and puzzles to make your game interesting but there is more to it than just that. Sometimes a game has to blow us away with its atmosphere and presentation while thinking outside the box with its puzzles and concepts. Snowfall is one of those games. This game was made by Tbremise of Tbremgames in the Physics Puzzle Maker and was shortly featured afterwards. Now why does this game strike so many chords with me in its design? Well stick around as I go into the psyche of Snowfall and talk about both the pros and cons that make this game one of a kind.

  First let's go into the story of Snowfall and like many of the games of old its plot is not exactly complex. You are Schnee the most adorable snowman on the planet, seriously its the pinnacle of cuteness you just can't resist it. Anyway unfortunately for Schnee his friends have been captured and his village has been ravaged by the possessed Snowhead. You being the awesome friend you are decided to go save your friends, fix up your village, and most importantly put a stop to Snowhead. Now while the story is pretty minor its worth mentioning because it plays to the game's biggest strength its atmosphere. The story also makes you the player feel more attached to our snowman protagonist Schnee. So with a plot to get us into Snowfall lets see how the game fares out.

  Now like I said in the previous paragraph where Snowfall really shines is in its atmosphere and presentation. Right off the bat you will fall in love with the protagonist but what else makes this game's atmosphere stand out? Well for starters the world or rather snow village in this case stands out. The graphics for the snow village and the NPC's are really great to look at. From the trees, to the little houses, to even the enemies they all fit perfectly into this game. Not only that but even the music adds to the atmosphere! Each track fits in every level and captures the mood of every situation. From the peaceful levels in the village to the spooky graveyard and even the climatic bosses. All these things make you feel immersed in the world to a point where you feel lost in every moment this game gives you. The presentation here is simply amazing and I wouldn't have it any other way.

  Alright so with a fantastic presentation lets see if the gameplay lives up to the atmosphere. You control Schnee moving in all directions using the arrow keys. Your method of attack are these snowballs which you aim at with the mouse and fire with the space bar. Obviously that's a lot of input and more often than not you will be aiming first then running up to an enemy and shooting. The goal however is to collect these presants which will then lead you to a teleporter. Do that for a few levels and then fight Snowhead using a few timed shots and your done. Other than Snowhead and a Ice witch boss the game is not that challenging it just has a lot of surprises. Its more about taking your time with your shots and the puzzles not just go in their snowballs blazing and once you do know what to do with the boss and puzzles its pretty easy. I don't really have a problem with this I just felt the game lacks substance. Only counting the levels where you actually do stuff this game is pretty short too. Sure the game has a bonus level, intro, and a cute little ending level but to me there are only five levels in this game and two of them are boss fights so I can't say that the gameplay is quite up to par with the gorgeous presentation.

  It's not all bad news for Snowfall though as the game once again shines through in its placement. Like I said before the game forces you to take your time with your shots because the presants are in direct danger zones. I really like games that force me stop and think things out not just rush through a game. Not only does the placement force you to think it also rewards you through exploration. For example when you fight the last boss Snowhead you can get killed pretty quickly if you just try to charge up to him but there are these lives near these trees right before you face him that really help you out in the fight. Not only that but thanks to the placement there are these walls right next to him. Now Snowhead has projectiles and bodyguards so maybe trying to go up and fire isn't the best idea but your just close enough to where you can fire at these walls. Sure enough you find out the walls are bouncy and you can kill him without even getting too close. This is using placement to help a game out not hurt it. Not only that but now because of the placement the game is even better than what it could have been without it. Overall placement is another key reason to why I just adore Snowfall.

  After playing Snowfall something weird happened to me. I had just finished the game and for some strange reason I stopped. I mean I loved playing this game but I couldn't figure out why I enjoyed it so much and then it hit me. Maybe game design is more than just a science. Maybe its more than simply a medium just to have fun. Maybe game design is an art. Something we can't explain. Something mysterious yet fun and new. Snowfall was one of those games. It just made me happy and blew me away with its atmosphere and great presentation. It maybe too short and sure it does lack substance but the good stuff is just too good. So for that and many reasons more Snowfall definitely deserved its feature and I'll be playing it a thousand times again.

Ratings

Story: 7 out of 10

Presentation: 10 out of 10

Gameplay: 6 out of 10

Difficulty: 5 out of 10

Placement: 9 out of 10

Final Score: 37 (24-37)

A solid game that stands out on its own. The game gets the most important things right and while there are flaws they don't break the experience or the game. Overall the game is pretty good and it has a good ideas which warrant at least a playthrough or two.



Then after that I waited for awhile then he sends me a pm and I'm all nervous going oh my gosh could this be it? I was so nervous so I went to tinychat and thanks to the support of extbear and glowingbluewolf I finally decided to look at it. Here is what tbremise said:

Well, you sure know how to butter a guy up. lol. Other than a few minor errors and some wording issues in the fourth paragraph, I like it, and covers what I like to see.
ACCEPTED.
(though you may want to not use this as a real review... it may look fishy if you get accepted by me and this post this. lol)
I will add you to the list.

Ok so at this point I'm bouncing off the wall so happy and so excited princess windeh is on tinychat now and hes being awesome as usual and wow I finally did it! I'm so happy and so excited at the same time. I just wanna thank everybody for being awesome and reading my applications and being supportive and all that stuff. So yeah free thanks for everybody! WOOHOO!  :) :) :)

He just private messaged me something very inappropriate that I'm not going to show you guys here. Later I went on tinychat and figured out he was private messaging the same inappropriate photo to a bunch of people on the forums. Either way could a mod or someone stop this?

General / I have a quote for you guys..
« on: April 13, 2013, 10:01 pm »
I liked it a lot its from a man named John Donne. You might have heard of him before but this quote made me stop for awhile and think.

"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee."
 
~John Donne

General / Anyone want a trailer done? I can make it!
« on: April 13, 2013, 08:05 pm »
It could be for a game coming out or for a rpfg or anything really just let me know! Here is some of my work in these links here:

best trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IstGuuJWEYs

other trailers:

Just say what game (and send me demo or something) or event you want a trailer made for and I'll do it no questions asked!  ;D

General / So its been exactly a year since I joined the forums.
« on: April 12, 2013, 05:50 pm »
I joined the forums on April 8th 2012 so yeah. I can't believe its even been that long it all feels like a month. Needless to say I've accomplished absolutely nothing!  :D

28
General / So..I like anime now.
« on: April 07, 2013, 05:41 pm »
Its actually pretty strange considering I use to just assume most anime was just a bunch of weird bizarre stuff. Its actually pretty good! The level of storytelling and action is second to none. The Animation is great to look at and some even try to change your outlook on life and philosophy. Now some animes yeah their bizarre but when you find a good one they just do everything right. If anyone just think anime is just garbage just because you never seen any you are seriously wrong.

Anyway if your asking yourself which one changed my mind it was Full Metal Alchemist! In like on month of watching the show I've memorized each opening and was invested in every single episode and character. Its funny yet sorta touching cause I have a brother so yeah. The alchemy and science behind it was pretty cool as well.

Anyway that is what I've been doing these past couple of weeks. I just thought I update you guys on what was happening.
