@MllePilgrim @infinite_ammo Gotta be quick about it if you want to keep up with me. (Today)

@MllePilgrim @infinite_ammo they were delicious (Today)

Luigis new final smash is pretty weird t.co/5DNaLrZLRr (Today)

@Demruth My small rural home town in the US got a roundabout a few years ago. People actually protested it, and take routes to avoid it... (Today)

@infinite_ammo The rich get richer. (Today)

@infinite_ammo "hey guys if we split this 500 piece sushi party platter 5 ways..." (Today)

@snakepixel His recovery is insane (like almost all chars in this game) You can do your air jump, then side B and jump cancel out of it! (Today)

@snakepixel Bowser Jr is who I'm trying to get good with! I love his back air and his air attack after ejecting from the flyer thing. (Today)

@ADAMATOMIC @MattThorson [187] xX Crosspwned j0nEz Xx (Today)

@MattThorson Billy Barnacle (but his business card says William Barnacle) (Today)

@MattThorson Crossbow Jones (Today)

@rabbit_nabokov Or I guess just a script that takes in a number as an argument and spits out the string for 0 - 9? (Today)

@rabbit_nabokov If you want 1 to give you "One" then the best bet would be to make a ds_map with the numbers as keys and the string as value (Today)

@rabbit_nabokov Key string should be a string of characters pressed by the keyboard, or are you talking about the number keys? (Today)

@rabbit_nabokov can you use the most recently added character to the key string? (Yesterday)

@SteveSwink that would be so amazing but sushi is so hard to make. We need to become bffs with a sushi chef (Yesterday)

@dannyBstyle bro what headphones are you using these days? my DT770s are now four years old and are finally completely falling apart RIP (2 days ago)

@rabbit_nabokov @konjak We really want to preserve the characters as they are. That's why Olimar is his original height of 4cm in the game. (2 days ago)

@AdventureMtn After (2 days ago)

@nickyonge @theBanov If you recall Fredrick Durstman is the one who said "..a redneck fucker from Jacksonville bringing on the dumpster..." (2 days ago)

Evo Hype and Sickness

Evo Hype and Sickness

On Monday I returned from the hellish nightmare that is Las Vegas where I was attending EVO, the largest fighting game tournament in the world (I think!) It was pretty crazy as it always is, and I'm totally exhausted from being in Vegas for four straight days.

EVO has an indie games showcase now and my friends at Team Colorblind were demoing Aztez for the EVO crowd once again. The indie game showcase featured a bunch of awesome titles ranging from competitive multiplayer games to single player action beat-em-up combo-centric titles. TowerFall and Samurai Gunn I think were my favorite multiplayer games at the show.

On Saturday night I started to feel a little sick but I fought it off for the rest of the Vegas stay with food and ibuprofen, but on the drive home on Monday I felt pretty sick. Monday night I got hit hard with a fever of 101 and I spent most of yesterday slowly climbing my way out of the depths of the "Evola" virus. There were a handful of people wearing face masks at Evo, so I wonder if they were already sick or were expecting the Evola.

Attending EVO every year is something I really look forward to. I used to just tune in on the live stream, but when I realized that it's not actually that far of a drive to Vegas I made it my mission to be in the EVO crowd every year. It's a totally different experience to be a part of the huge crowd during the finals day, and even just walking around the room during the pools play. I really recommend any fan of fighting games make it out to EVO if they can! It's a pretty awesome experience even as just a spectator.

Since I just got back from the fighting game world championships, I'm itching to play some fighting games again. If you want to throw down at some Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition ver. 2012, then add me on Xbox Live kpulv or on GFWL xxerus. It'd be cool to have some people to play with every once and awhile. I played a little bit on MANvsGAME the other night and it was a lot of fun!

Okay I'll get back to making a game now I guess.
