Would you like some Steak with that Sauce?
Ah yes, the age old metaphor: In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is randomly handed a BFG to unceremoniously defeat the bad guy. Sho'nough, it done looked real perrty and all, but I suggest investing in a story next time.
Even better on Mute!
It's especially entertaining if you view this page's comments as part of this 'piece;' Her commentators, members of that faceless sea. Each sharing the same group think. Each feeling it necessary to expound on the obvious; fueling their egos under the subtle delusion that they have something significant to add, some greater insight or unique perspective... Even as their own words expose the fraud of single-mindedness and cultural allegiance sworn to this modern market zeitgeist of self-adoration.
His days spent text-messaging shallow, abbreviated thoughts to shallow, abbreviated acquaintances - all the while absolutely confident in his perfect uniqueness: his incredibly unreproducible individuality.
What strange beast this: Capable of believing that he is somehow standing out, even as he desperately struggles to find and follow the patterns set by the corporate conglomerates, international bankers, and Telecoms he calls god. He downloads another ringtone and sets his eyes on that new car or TV or computer he wants; She buys another pair of skin-tight jeans, shoes, and a belly-shirt... and everyone in the world imagines it must be everyone else the advertisers are getting to. Must be the neighbors who are follow the trends... because, "if I'm found following them, well, I'm not really. I just happen to like these things! And it's not because I've allowed my world view to be shaped and crafted by too much Ruport Murdoch sponsored television and too much Clear Channel censored radio. No... No. I'm above it, even if it may appear that I'm smack dab in the middle of it. Even if it looks like I'm the cause!!! Really! I'm telling you: Of all people - I'm unique!"
A long time GMan Follower
I haven't really poked around NG for some time now, but I ended up scanning my old reviews tonight which led me to this (now very old) latest George Man installation.
First some comments: It's been a while since I've watched the series but I don't remember George Man being this obscenely violent. Not that I have anything against violence necessarily - it just didn't sit well with me here.
The suddenly angst filled content of everything is seriously off-putting. Part of what I originally enjoyed in GM was it's sometimes campy nature. Oh for the happy-go-lucky days of George Man's youth; But I digress.
Animation was very nice, timing was overall good, and I did quite enjoy the slow motion bullet build-up; if only for the teasingly funny result.
That said... What happened man?! Why no GM eps. for two years? I know how it goes, you get bored with it, you 'grow up' and get a 'real' life. But damnit man! You developed some excellent flash skills here. The motion and fluidity of even the characters eyes in this last installment speaks to that. How can you walk away?
Don't leave me hangin' here. Get out the tablet (or just grab the mouse) and show me the old care-free George Man I know and love. I'll accept nothing less!
Ya' bitch. ;)
I voted 4... Because that is the number of hours I've been poking at this damnable game. Even with help from the thread at nordinho.net I am still unable to beat your contrivance.
-PSUEDO SPOILER ALERT-
Seriously, you're killing me over here. After this much effort, the only bugs I'm bouncing off of had better be in my head and not in-game. I'm about to restart and test the possibility that, though I am allowed, maybe I am not intended to mix both dust types together.
After that, I give... maybe.
Well done actionscript. Excellent maze generator. I can't fault the code -- however, where playability or even testing is concerned: I would've enjoyed it more with better responce time in sprite movement.
Still - nice work. 12k! Rock.
Yeah, im not sure what was with the lag, it was all looking good till I put the little character in. Any ideas what I did wrong?
