  1. I know this isn't probably the most helpful answer, but have you tried calling DF about this?
  2. Would Crash Bandicoot qualify as a proper adventure game? That was my very first game and a treasure it was I still play it occasionally too!
  3. I live in the states, currently. :3 Does that mean I get priority--hahahaa... because, you know, everything seems to come out first over here than anywhere else.
  4. Wait, Sly cooper: Thieves in time are is already coming out so soon?!! Skool, stahp takin all ma tyme!! D:
  5. Personally... I don't see how that could be bad? I mean, it's causing you to do something good; even if it is for what people may categorize as the "wrong reasons."
  6. If time had a direction, would our world map look upside-down? If it didn't, then what does "back in time" or "Back then" or "The time when" mean?
  7. I have noticed that of late. It's a shame |: It's funny how 2000ish everyone wanted multiplayer in games because it was fun and gave more of a challenge and team work.Now I wish everything was single player again cause only idiots plays online. Says the guy who is constantly pestering everyone to play online with him.Haha, that is true! But that's because playing pubs with random people is impossible. I sware their either retarded or stupid, and they never talk and when they do talk it's to bitch at everyone. Perhaps we could become a dynamic duo?
  8. I can relate to that too. Although, believe it or not, I mostly played WoW for the social aspect and I was always the scrub with the worst gear and lowest level in my guild. I usually would just grind and talk on the guild chat or LFG chat just to talk people. Sadly, after WotLK people have become less social and more focused towards getting to end game or maxing out their rep or running raids to get best gear--constantly. I still remember vividly how I quit the game and somewhat regretted that I never got to play the new content. My highest level ever was with a level 66 warlock. I never actually did a raid before either. ahah... It irks me how large communities can eventually go to crap. /:
  9. And I must say (sorry for whomever actually enjoys LoL), it is the worst game I have ever played online. I say that solely because of its player base. I have played 4 games and every single one of them I was called a troll because I was "feeding" or something like that. I couldn't even just enjoy the game! And, to pour salt onto the wound, they used a lot of lingo and expected me to understand it! I was mocked the entire game T___T Anyway, I don't want this to be a rant. I'm just curious. Is the LoL community really that crass? Or was this some very bad coincidence.
  10. 0_0 These are amazing?! How long did they take you to make??
  11. Aw, man. You can't be serious. X was one of my firsts and, in my own opinion, had one of the most heartfelt stories in the entire series. I really felt an attachment with Tidus (and Wakka especially) throughout the entire game. To me, it feels like all these new FF characters have horrid attitude problems. YES, I am looking at your Lightning! >___>;
  12. That's a pretty wicked lookin' Raz! I like it!
  13. Is this how process food is prepared? o___________o I'm scared.
  14. Oh, worry not. I will be active. I mentioned in my OP that I'm sort of new. Funny story too. Lol the sole reason why I came to this forum was to get a little insight on Grim Fandango. I recently bought that game and have been playing it(which is,btw, an uber fantastic-superflously-dazzling-chic game).
  15. Hmmm... Well my math skills are leet, and I have been checkin' out SDL for a while. I may use that to learn and make a a game out of. Thank you for the replies guys! :3 And thank you AnAnemoneInAnonymity for the article--I liked it. It actually restored a lot of confidence in me. I'm glad to know that you can use almost anything to program a game. If it is all for everyone, I may post my progress on here and perhaps links to builds if people don't mind me potentially rezzing this in the future. Ahah...
  16. Thanks for the reply guys and you both are absolutely right. I must start somewhere and build myself from that point. Practice, practice, practice. But what I was seeking for was what tools, as a programmer, would be most useful for me. Like I mentioned in my previous post, I do not want to spend my time practicing a library or way of programming that is very obsolete or impracticable. I'm sorry that this question is very specific and difficult to answer, but I'm-a-searchin'!
  17. Hey guys, I know that this is probably not exactly the best place to ask this, but honestly I am far too frightened to ask on a professional programming forum. I get the feeling that this is a very drawn out and annoying question that is asked a bunch on there. So I thought to myself... "Hey, I've recently joined the double fine forums and it seems like a nice place with, I am sure, some programmers on there who have experience and may be kind enough to share that with me." Let me also state as well that I have been on many "Herp-derp-game development websites/tutorials-herp" and have not really absorbed much on them because they basically tell everyone on them to go back home, buy a book of your favorite programming language and master it. Then, once you do master, go download a stupid library and master that too. Not very enlightening and I can probably understand why they say that. So, to my point... I have a strong background in C/C++ and some Python, and let's just say that I am at the stage where I am trying to figure out if it would be worth my time to pick up on an API like QT or master something a little more rudimentary like SDL or OpenGL or even Allegro. Believe you me, I having been searching on this topic for a while and no one seems to have given a very concrete answer. What're you opinions? What do you think is worthwhile? Thanks
