      After more than a decade of serving this community well, these forums have finally run their course and it's time to close them down. That doesn't mean we want to close the doors on our community, quite the opposite!
      Our discord server grows ever busier by the day, and we encourage all Double Fine fans to meet us over there www.discord.gg/doublefine In a short time these forums will become a read only archive and will remain that way until they become needed again.
      You never know, it might happen.  There is... a prophecy. Thank you all for being part of these forums, and remember that the fun is definitely not over - so please join us on Discord! Love ya, Spaff, Tim, Info Cow, and all of Double Fine.

  1. I like mutts. My grandfather's dog was a Schnauzer-Poodle mix, and she was the most intelligent (most of the time), nicest dog you'd ever meet. We need more Israeli/Palestinian or Jewish/Muslim feel-good cooperation stories. I still need to make a resume. I've been putting it off because I was too busy, or because I worried that I had nothing to put on it.
  2. This is why I don't have my own review show, I'd be so tempted to do this from the get-go. I don't know if it's because of the influence of other people, or because I want to see the good in most things/hate being negative, or what.
  3. I've never played HALO, or really watched anyone else play it, but a former classmate once put it on while we were working on homework. It's beautiful. But I don't think I've ever disliked an orchestral soundtrack for anything.

    Thanks, friend! I'm glad you do. I always imagined him as a biker or a spaceman with a kick-ass rainbow scarf.
  5. Offtopic rant: Fans in various fandoms I am in are doing dumb things. I do not blame the fandoms for this, as I have seen several people who do not even associate with each other doing the same dumb things. I therefore blame human nature. I was editing a fan-wiki for a game. There are wikis out there that post fan-speculation and fictional info, and this is not one of them. This person logged in and started uploading a ton of 'this is what is going to happen in the next game because I really want [insert company here] to combine all of my favorite characters together' articles, or just copying articles wholesale from TVTropes. Whatever you think of the site (and believe me, it has its own problems), just copy + pasting their articles is not a thing that sits right with me. If you do not have the info to write an article from scratch, don't write the article, and especially don't erase someone's article and replace it with something copy + pasted from another source.
  6. Medacris is going to go crazy over this. Yes, I enjoyed this immensely. And I agree with him, Walter Peck definitely has a point. It's just that he goes around acting like a total dick and putting peoples' lives in danger, while the 'Busters, despite being reckless, cowardly, and harming the environment, are much more likable people. Also, I think it's totally in character for them to spend money on pinball machines and arcade games instead of food. Jon's review of Foodfight! was better, but I think the Brentalfloss-as-Mr.-Clean cameo fits better as a Nostalgia Critic joke, being that Brent has shown up in three different NC videos already, two of where he was cosplaying. I think the film was infamous before it came out as well, if mostly for being stuck in high-profile Development Hell for a decade, and because prior to Wreck-It Ralph and The LEGO Movie being released, the idea of another Roger Rabbit-type mascot crossover was a very uncommon idea. A lot of the commenters are also pointing out that Charlie Sheen was 30-something when he filmed this, while Hilary Duff was 15. Even though she's in her 30's now, that's still creepy.
  7. Has it been said what's going to happen to the Colbert Report when Stephen takes over? (Also hello, sorry, I've been busy with school lately. Sorry I haven't been on.)

    Don't be afraid, Slenderfan. Just post your art however and whenever you want, and only compare your current art to your previous art. Life is not a race, it's a hike. I'm sure what you've drawn is great. This isn't new, but I finished coloring and compiling it together. Good old Egon Spengler. I was devastated by Harold Ramis' death. I shipped the heck out of Egon and Janine as a kid. Still do. Mystery solvers, teaming up to fight the supernatural. TF2 comic reaction drawing. I love the heck out of every new update.
  9. Ahhh, owning these is my dream! I've never gotten to play either, and I don't feel right emulating them.
  10. I am here, friend. (Also, thank you for finally adding me on Steam, I was hoping you would for awhile.) I am sorry I have been away. I was dealing with midterms and also being sick at the same time. I appear to be better now.
  11. @Retro: I would have gone with Danganronpa, because it's the only one you picked that I know well, and it's the kind of game I want to see people putting money towards, so we get more of them ported to the West in the future. @Fhqwhgads: Perhaps. I consider myself an Agent Scully with an Agent Mulder inside. I want to believe in the supernatural, but I just haven't seen anything that wasn't proven a hoax, and I haven't seen anything with my own eyes that I could consider proof. I was mostly upset though because she talked to me like a deluded idiot who knew nothing about science, because her belief is that anything not definitively debunked therefore absolutely exists. @Darth: It's okay for a storyboard, but definitely unprofessional for a finished work. The bearded man reminds me of Obi-Wan's design from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. @Alcoremortis: That's an equally appropriate .gif. I'm reusing that later, thanks. @Upcoming movies: Skeptical about the Peanuts one, but it doesn't look as bad as I had worried. Excited for Pixar sequels. Incredibles was one of my favorite films of theirs overall, and I actually sort of like Cars and its sequel. Cars 2 was interesting, because it got away with a lot of things that I don't think would have been deemed 'appropriate' with human characters.
  12. Dealing with a person who's trying to convince me that because science says "there's stuff out there we haven't discovered yet", that her belief in fairies and unicorns is totally valid ("Everything that hasn't been proven also hasn't been disproven, right?"), and any scientist who doesn't realize that hasn't even passed their 101 courses, and she, with no science degree, is clearly much more well-educated than me, someone who is about to graduate with a Bachelor's in Psychology. MFW:
  13. The interesting thing about horror, Carl, is it can be both a gameplay motif and a story motif, so why not a horror game with an easier-to-manage genre? Horror platformer or RPG?
  14. No worries. She's been really vacant for over a year, and we barely got to talk, and when we did, she snapped at me, without me knowing why. I feel like I got over the breakup before we had actually broken up. @Fhqwhgads: I hope things work out better for your grandmother. @Feddie: I'm glad your mom's alright! @Cool/Feddie: I've heard several women claiming to be the nurse, all with conflicting stories. IDK what the real story is, honestly. @Carl: Best of luck on the project. I have the same problem whenever I'm in a group. It sucks. :<
  15. Costumes you want to see

    +1 for this. Even if it's just a silly DLC pack, I'll buy it. There's so much good material floating around their games, it's too good to pass up. Yes, definitely. Add to that list an Eddie Riggs costume with some cool guitar attacks I drew a couple concepts of this idea here awhile back. This was before Broken Age was finished, so the outfits might need to be brushed up a bit.
