  1. Greetings folks! I'm Animator Zee and I'm yet another freshmeat here. I'm an artist and costumer, and currently I'm studying animation. And also I really think Double Fine is super awesome otherwise I probably wouldn't be here. In fact, I often wonder why I was never here earlier. What incredible wonders have I been missing out on...?

    I had something witty for this introduction but I forgot what it was going to be. Oh well. I'm sure I'll remember it at some point! My mind is pretty wonky like that.

    Anywho, hello!

    Animator and costumer? YOU SOUND AWESOME ALREADY.


  2. Spacestation Silicon Valley

    The game starts out with the two main characters, EVO and his human friend, crashing onto a hostile planet/spacestation called 'Silicon Valley', which was apparently an experiment to place artificial intelligence into robotic animals that went haywire and the animals ended up turning on their scientist creators and destroying them. The two main characters were advertised as 'heroes for hire' and sent to take control of the space station. Really, it's sort of a goofier Jurassic Park concept, when you think about it.

    In the beginning intro of the game, a robotic dog is killed in the crash, and EVO, now being a microchip without a body, hops into the corpse of the dead dog and takes control-- And that's where the game begins.

    So basically, you go through the game killing and taking the forms of various animals across the world in order to complete your objectives and finally get your body back. A few examples of the crazy animals you get to play as are: A fox on wheels, a rat that can drop explosive poop, a polar bear tank (that shoots cannonballs) and a wolf on ski's. And that's just one of the many ridiculous animals on the space station.

    The difficult part was always actually KILLING the animals so you could take their form, since some of them were especially hard to take down and you literally had to sneak up on them half the time, or else they'd spot you and kill you first.

    Anyway, I always thought it was a pretty fun concept and one I'd love to see redone and made better someday. The game was unfortunately, full of glitches and flaws and could've been so much more than it was.


  3. You know what my favorite game in the Legend of Zelda series is? It's not Ocarina of Time. Nope. It's Majora's Mask. I have so much sympathy for that game. Everybody overlooked it (or worse, dismissed it) becuase it had the misfortune of being the next Zelda game released after Ocarina of Time. But in all honesty, I think it's just as good, if not better. It's a pseudo-sequel to Ocarina of Time, and the story is probably the darkest one in a Zelda game yet. The characters are, for the most part (cough*TINGLE*cough), not annoying, the individual stories going on around the land are full of emotion, and the gameplay, using various quirky masks, is entertaining and unique. There's only four dungeons, but all four are lengthy and well thought out. Seriously, if you want Zelda action with an actually gripping story, play Majora's Mask. But I digress!

    I'm actually in the process of playing Majora's Mask for the first time and I have absolutely fallen in love with this game. There's just something incredibly intriguing about the world, characters and sense of dread over your head the entire time with the moon hanging over Termina. It really puts a realistic spin on things to have the three day time limit and creates a feeling of responsibility to the people around you in the game, and I've found that really neat. I also find the characters in the game very three dimensional and relatable, which I enjoy.

    While we're on this topic though, has anyone else heard of the Majora Opera project?

    That being said though... Oh man, I know a buttload of great games that were/are overlooked. Gonna try and type up a post for later!


  4. Honestly it looks really mediocre to me. Do love the amount of gothic family films coming out though. I just think Frankenweenie and especially ParaNorman look better.

    Totally ecstatic about those as well.

    I loved the original Frankenweenie as a child, so seeing it hit the big screen again is beyond awesome.


  5. Yeah,I'm sorry.

    My art is just pretty important to me.

    Heck,One time I became so depressed about it I had to take a drawing break because everytime I touched a sheet of paper,I got the urge to rip it apart.

    And you know what? Screw it,I'm gonna post a link to three of my Psychonauts fancharacters here.

    CLICK ON IT,I SAY

    If anyone wants to know: Yes,They're asylum inmates.

    Hi, Martina! Honestly, I just wanted you to know that I get how you feel, seriously. What hurts the most is that what you're feeling so frustrated over is also the thing you enjoy doing more than anything. It's hard to deal with, and I'm still learning to get through it, myself. But if it means anything, I think you have a cute and colorful style and I would be very happy to give you feedback on the things you post.

    Also, seeing your characters takes me back to when I used to do a lot of stuff with my own Psychonauts fancharacters-- it'd be nice to bring them back again, haha. (:


  6. I figured HEY! There's a thread for Wreck-It-Ralph so I guess it's fine if I make one for Hotel Transylvania.

    Anyone heard of it/seen the trailer? Think it looks ridiculously awesome or just average? Share your opinion.

    Personally, I'm ecstatic about this film. I love the interesting take on the classic monster concept. It's the sort of thing I can see being a lot of fun. I went to see Brave last week, (which I loved, btw) and this trailer was one of the lineup of previews before it.


  7. Same here, and when I try to stay up the whole day to sleep when I'm suppose to I always fail :(

    Like Koco said, it feels so wrong and uncomfortable to be waking up past noon ugh

    TBH, I feel kind of guilty when it happens because I keep thinking I could've used that time for something productive/I wasted the precious daylight, etc.

    For example, I'm eating supper right now and it feels like it should be 1:30, not 6:30. It's like the day's been stolen from me.

    WORST FEELING EVER. I really just need to get in bed sooner at nighttime so this doesn't happen anymore. But I'm such a night-owl so it's difficult for me.


  8. Great Crispin, Koco! That picture of him there makes me think of Brain from Pinky and the Brain. Cool to see you back on DFAF!
    Yeah, this is truly excellent.

    I wish I could colour stuff half as well as this.

    Thank you both!! <3


  9. I'M SAM! I CALL DIBS!

    Seriously though I love you guys so much never leave us again. And if you do, promise you'll visit.

    FF, FINE. Lol. :'D

    I really plan to stick around this time. I mean, I set the forum as my homepage so that says something. ;D

    I missed ya'll too, seriously. Even after three years have passed, I still recall the good times I had on here. //sentimental sob
