    Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams

    I can't believe this hasn't been mentioned on this forum yet. A third Giana Sisters game has, after a stormy development, just been released. Although its predecessors were little more than the original Super Mario Bros. in drag, this game features entirely original gameplay: Getting around is...

    Lucky Day Forever

    Before I get too much into this, I should say that the following links are not work-safe, so don't click on them if you're in the presence of the boss-man or anybody else you want to make a good impression on. Also, if you're squeamish about such things, the links specifically contain nudity...

    Turkey Genocide '11

    So, another year has passed and we in the US once again feel obligated to take a day or more off of work and school and stuff our maws and collapse in front of our television sets. How is your Thanksgiving holiday shaping up to be? Mine was fairly typical. My grandmother takes a lot of pride in...

    Webcomics you would recommend.

    Because we've had this topic for movies, so why not for webcomics? Subnormality is a gorgeously drawn comic strip by one Mr. Tree (not his real name). It is about the human experience in general, both the things we tend to say and those we don't. Also, there's a man-eating sphinx in there. Can...

    Electronic Addictions

    I think this thread will be ironic and contradictory for a couple of reasons. Also, there will be some whining, and the text will be long. Here goes nothing. I currently have what I consider to be an unhealthy addiction to electronic media, specifically to the internet and to videogames. I...

    Good, but old, games

    Scary as it seems, I think I might actually be maturing. Well, maybe not. Let me set the scene for you guys. I recently sold off a lot of the games I've accrued in disc form, including Sonic Adventure DX and 2:Battle and Heroes. For various reasons, though, I held onto a few select games of...

    Who are your favorite musical artists?

    I suppose I've been trying to... expand my musical horizons lately, for a lack of a better term, and I think you guys might be able to help. I've recently been enjoying DJ Shadow, whose Endtroducing was introduced to me by the discussion facilitated by Bigboi in the Colosseum. So, what artists...

    Something Mildly Interesting in Knuckles Chaotix

    So, I'm finally playing Knuckles Chaotix and am generally hating it. But that's another post for another thread. Anywho, I was wondering if this has happened to any of you who have played the game. The player partners with other characters, the two losers of which are Heavy and Bomb. I'm...

    Best program for recording videogames?

    So there are some freeware games, like SRB2, that I would like to record during gameplay, with sound. I'd also like to be able to easily upload the recordings onto YouTube. Can you guys suggest some good programs to do this with? I've tried WeGame already, but I can't seem to open the resulting...

    "We're looking for a couple of good villians..."

    I posted a topic like this long ago, but my first post derailed and it never really got anywhere. I suspect that some people, myself included, generally enjoy villianous characters more than their corresponding heroes. For me at least, it's in part because villians tend to be more bombastic...

    Uncut Subbed Sonic X on Hulu

    Yeah, so there's a topic like this on Retro. Bite me. Anyway, I've never had a chance to watch the Japanese Sonic X, always hearing that it was much better than the English version. But now Hulu has episodes 1 through 26 in their uncut, unaltered glory and subbed for your convenience. If you're...

    Evil Otto and Other Videogame Villians

    Note: To skip a very large and irrelevant essay, please scroll down to the "tl:dr" section. Thanks for your cooperation. "Gather 'round children, and you shall hear The tale of Evil Otto. If you ever see his smiling face, 'Run like Hell' would be my motto." The year is 1980 and the game is...

    The Classic Tracks You Love

    Ladies and gents, I'm curious: What are your favorite musical tracks in... uh... videogamedom? Myself, I've always been partial to the mesmerizing vocals of Palmtree Paradise, Wario Land 4... ...Conversely, this ear-piercer from Sonic Spinball is one my personal favorites... ...And who...

    rRootage: Bullet Hell on the Cheap

    I was going to post this in the Touhou topic, but everyone seems to be pretty enveloped in discussing that series. Anywho... http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~cs8k-cyu/windows/rr_e.html Here's a freeware bullet hell game entitled rRootage. It's similar to the Touhou games in that it's vertically...

    "Held by the Taliban" New York Times Article

    I don't often read the paper, but this particular story in the New York Times caught my attention. It chronicles the capture and captivity of a journalist by the Taliban, and his eventual escape. Here are the appropriate links: Part One -...

    What are your favorite comic strips?

    This is totally copied and pasted from the DeviantArt forums, but I want to hear what you guys think and don't want to retype this ridiculously long post. Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis (http://comics.com/pearls_before_swine) is probably my favorite comic strip still in circulation...

    Sonic the Hedgehog *Level Creator*

    http://www.playsega.com/editors/ So, uh, Sega has released a 2D Sonic level editor. It features badniks and gimmicks of Green Hill Zone. You can share your levels on Sega's website. Playing other people's levels is free. To create your own levels, however, you must have a paid VIP account...

    What's Your Style: Abstraction or Realism?

    Once again, I'm commiting plagarism by ripping another idea from the GHZ forums. Somebody suggested a poll to gauge people's preference for the art styles of Sonic games. Although each game has its own unique visual signatures, all arguably fall under two broad catagories: The wildly abstract...

    Quick question...

    Hi. Is it possible to make rotating platforms in SRB2, or something approximating them? Thanks in advance for your responses.
