General / List Your Famous "Catchphrases" Here
« on: June 28, 2012, 01:40 pm »
As the title suggests, post your "catchphrase" here.

Npc10000 here to give you an npc10000 review. I’m reviewing “Through the Steel and Rubble 2” by giratina8000.


Who?: To be honest, I have never heard of giratina8000, and I’ve never played his games. So I don’t know what to expect from him. Is he an undiscovered member who makes great games that no one plays? Or is he a popular one that I’ve never heard of? Or…is he an ALIEN?
…my failed attempt at an alien.

Thumbnail: Wow, is what I’m thinking as I stare at this complex design. The thumbnail looks GREAT. The background and scenery are astounding, and my expectations for the game are doubled. The title is pleasingly intriguing, too. Time to play this game.


Story: Due to the fact that this game is a sequel, here is the storyline from the first “Through the Steel and Rubble (which I didn’t review because it was too small of a game):

“One day you were taking a walk and suddenly you fall into a truck! The next thing you know you are in a strange factory, in which you need to escape!”

It seemed that there was no story in this game, though. However the first level’s description of “You just woke up…you don’t know where you are, but you need to get out” seems to qualify. A vague story, but a story nonetheless. Moving on to the more important parts of the review…

Playing the Game: As the story suggests, you’re trapped in some kind of factory, and you have to uncover who captured you and why you are here. The game revolves around your valiant efforts to escape the factory and hopefully confront your captor. The levels are always changing and are always keeping you on your toes. “Through the Steel and Rubble 2” is fun and all, and fairly challenging, but a big flaw in this game is – some of the levels are scathingly short. I mean, some levels involve going a couple of feet, jumping, avoiding this enemy or hazard, then jumping, and scoring. It just seemed disappointing, and I thought that much, much more could’ve been done with it to make it more interesting and enjoyable.

But on the other hand, the game was cool: some parts were really tricky, and it took you a couple of tries to get the hang of it.

Scenery: The scenery is the best part of the game – it looks absolutely superb. Giratina8000 included every little detail in this game that makes it fun to look at, from the custom-made brick texture, to the pipe junctions scaling the screen, from the trusses supporting the platforms, to the gears spinning in the background: in scenery, “Through the Steel and Rubble 2” wins a perfect 100%.

Puzzles/Traps: The first puzzle in this game was the character itself – a little teal sphere with swallowthesun eyes. Instead of setting the object’s movement on “slide,” giratina8000 set the player’s movement on “rotate and slide” – meaning that a small tap of the arrow key would send the player careening across the screen. You really had to be careful not to go to fast, or you’ll spiral out of control and most likely die or, well,…die.

But anyways, I actually liked the puzzles and traps in this game. “Through the Steel and Rubble 2” features elements and different sorts of puzzles/traps that I don’t see anywhere else. Like for instance, you take a little ride down a couple of yellow (why yellow?) ramps. You have to have expert precision and speed, or else you’ll fall into a seething pit of lava or get smacked in the face by a moving black brick embroidered with skulls-and-crossbones.

In another part of the game, the level is littered with red spikes, and touching one would ultimately send you flying into another one. You would need great hand-eye coordination to jump over them, and to slow yourself down in time so you don’t hit another spike via momentum. There is also a gap in which you must fall down, and the walls are peppered with spikes. It takes one, clean, straight jump to perform a safe descent, or else you’ll undoubtedly bounce off the spikes and lose all your lives.
That was just a small sample of the puzzles and traps in the game, and in conclusion, I was pleased by them.

...and when I came back to check on it, the line was snapped.

General / The Noob Survival Guide: Chapter 1

Please keep in mind that this thread is used for more entertainment than instructional purposes. Thank you.

They come in mobs. They don’t stop. They cannot follow simple commands, and they are ready to assault anyone they see. What are these creatures? Zombies? No. Unlike the undead, ravenous, flesh-and-blood-machines zombies are, these monsters can think independently and cunningly. And they are real – too real – if you look at the Main Site. I’m talking, of course, about noobs.

When the term “noob” first surfaced on the Internet, it was a derogatory term for a “newbie,” or a member who has just a community, group, or server of some sort, and has little to no idea what he/she is doing. Experienced (or immature) members would shout the title to said member if they made a stupid or careless mistake, or if they ask a stupid question.
Now, the term “noob” refers to a member who intentionally and independently breaks the rules or ToS (Terms of Service) of a certain community, group, server, etc. A noob can also be categorized as any one person who has terrible grammar or poor sentence structure.

1.   Excessive spamming (SPAM: Stupid Pointless Annoying Messages) – noobish.
2.   Bypassing – aka expressive obscenity/vulgarity – noobish.
3.   BOT’ing – the exact opposite of DBOT (Don’t Bump Old Threads) – noobish.
4.    Improper grammar – like “Me likez a elephant” – noobish.
5.   Excessive use of emoticons or acronyms – like OMFG ROFL :D :D :D :D LOL – noobish.
6.   A complete ignorance to understanding, reason, and/or discipline – noobish.
7.   One who gets demoted constantly – noobish.

There are three types of noobs: noobs, newbs, and nubs.

NOOB: A member who, on his/her own accord, shows any of the above signs willingly. He/she acts in such a manner repetitively and unceasingly. These kinds of noobs are the worst. There is little to nothing that can be done to save them.
NEWB: A fresh, new member. He/she may not intentionally act like a noob. A newb most commonly shows signs of #4, #5, and maybe #2 and #3 in the HOW TO RECOGNIZE A NOOB list. Newbs are not hopeless cases: with guidance and discipline, they can easily become unmarked as a newb and branded as a mature member.
NUB: This is not an official term: “nub,” pronounced as either “noob” or “nub (with “U” as in bathtub),” is a term used as kind of like a slap to the face: whether jokingly or seriously.
TROLL: Although a troll is rather classified as a sub-species of noob, it is the most dangerous. A troll has intentions to cause an emotional upheaval from a community via messages or offensive pictures. A troll can be a noob, and it cannot be one, either. Trolls are cunning and smart, but they are much more unlikely to occur than a noob, newb, or nub.


They can appear in many different shapes, sizes, and colors, but if there’s one thing that is similar in most noobs, it’s what’s inside.

BRAIN: If there’s one thing a noob lacks mentally, it’s common sense. A noob has only one thing on his/her mind: keep on going. They will never stop flaming or spamming or noobing it up.
EYES: A noob’s eyes are usually squinted from staring at a computer screen all day. They are incapable of seeing anything past the rectangular dimensions of their computer screen.
NOSE: A noob has no need for its nose. Usually, in an effort to preserve it, the body of the noob flushes blood towards the vessels in the nostrils, swelling it up a considerable amount.
TASTE: Noobs cannot distinguish tastes anymore, so the taste buds shrivel and cease to perform their basic functions. The only things that the body accepts as fuel are Mountain Dew and Doritos.
BODY: The noob is deprived of healthy food, so it’s in no physical condition to fight. The only thing a noob can do without breaking a sweat is type, blink, and move its head.
