  1. In the event you missed it... http://larrylaffer.net/archives/3392
  2. With more and more people being asked to remain inside with the current state of things... I figured I'd mention it here specifically, I do a web series using the Neverwinter Nights game engine. I wrote the story, filmed the series, edited the voices, did the whole bit - and had my friends, and even some professionals (Al Lowe, creator of Leisure Suit Larry, Greg Johnson creator of Toejam and Earl, Lindsay Archer, professional artist and good friend) - all lend voices to the series. I originally started it in 2004 (late, so closer to 2005) and "finished" it in 2013. It ran 65 episodes. Just a few years ago, I got it in my head to go back and refilm the series (because originally it was 800x600, then 1024x768, then who knows what - but all of it using a free editor so the quality really suffered). Now I am redoing it all - in 1080p (1920x1080) - with all new footage, cleaning up the audio where I can, etc. It's been wonderful revisiting this series. I am currently (as of Saturday evening) on Episode 49 out of 65. Seems like a good time, for anyone who may have time on their hands to catch up on the series. And please, by all means, if you enjoyed any of it - please share. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising, because it's coming from a trusted source, rather than a paid source. Much love, Tawmis. Play list on Youtube (starting from Episode 01) - begins here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Wr4-u9-zw0&list=PLbRG7dzFI-u3EJd0usasgDrrFO3mZ1lOZ&index=1 (Don't forget to click the gear icon to set it to 1080p, because it typically defaults to 720p on Youtube) If you're more the "I have a ton of bandwidth and want to push the limits of your website and download these" type of person, you can do that too: http://neverendingnights.com/nenvideos/all-hq-episodes
  3. I admit, Pope shutting down his Facebook and Twitter not to long ago, didn't send the best feeling in the world. Felt like someone who knows it's not working out. But at the same time, could just be someone who is tired of hearing "When is it coming out?" I am more than sure he wants this off his shoulders just as much as everyone else wants a copy of it. What probably started out as a fun idea has become a massive burden. As for health, if you follow Scott Murphy on Twitter, he posts frequent updates about his health issues.
  4. Well, since the Original Post was in 2016... pretty sure the Kickstarter is already done.
  5. Roger may well be a virgin; but I don't think that screenshot would indicate either way. The "ladies your mom told you about" is said more in humor. As for having a previous relationship, that's never been said, to my memory.

  12. I've always wanted to write some Sierra Fanfic... Instead, I did this for Space Quest... "Episode 01" if you will... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--1ioK6ekG0 Episode 02... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpYIMuIhJa0 It was all a test to do machinima using Sierra games... so there wasn't a lot of effort put into it, since it was a test. But still fun to do. Which led me to making these silly videos during the SpaceVenture Kickstarter... Episode 01: Who is Tawmis Vohaul? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PylKTDO5JLQ Episode 02: Guest Stars Mark Crowe & Scott Murphy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SF2XWrndog8 Episode 03: Let's Talk About Cock. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiP0C6x8F6Y Episode 04: The Vlog https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nAV8_pGC-o
  13. I have made a play list now - that begins with Episode 01 (and currently goes to 03, the newest Episode). Sierra fans (that's you!) should recognize something that's "Sierra Related" in Episode 03...

  14. So back in 2004 (November) - my friend and I began a trek of creating a Neverwinter Nights machinima series called Neverending Nights - and much to our surprise, found folks who enjoyed the madness we had created. The series concluded after 65 episodes (ending in Jan 2013). I have bounced back and forth with returning to the series and beginning a new adventure - but a lot of the original actors have long since moved out of San Diego. (And I dislike recording over Skype or other means; when it's not a controlled environment where it's very quiet), because several episodes suffered because of it (in terms of audio). Well, the other day - someone had mentioned that the series is still pretty fun - but pretty rough at 800x600 resolution when they expand it to full screen (it blurs horrible and pixelates). So then I thought - why don't I re-film the entire series and do what I can to "fix" the audio (as much as possible; in some cases, there's just going to be no helping it, for example when some lines were recorded by someone who lived on the other side of the US and recorded their lines on an iPhone). Here is the original Episode 01: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3LXflc9np4 And here is the re-filmed 1080p (true HD) version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Wr4-u9-zw0 I plan on re-releasing each episode every Saturday (for the next 65 Saturdays, as time permits). If you enjoyed the new HD version; please share it and help get the word out. I'd GREATLY appreciate it.
  15. Final episode of the series finally posted... http://neverendingnights.com/archives/1506
  16. Heh, you either saw it on here or on the SQ BroomCloset... I think that's where I initially pimped these out.
  17. http://www.facebook.com/TheSchoolForHeroes Get ready for more awesome.
  18. This is true! My only regret is tasting the twinkie (that I didn't use for my nose since they come in dual packs). Lots of great and fun pictures all around, and that makes it worth it.
  19. No, it doesn't make you an "ignorant gamer" (nor was I implying such) - I was merely marveling at the idea of a shooter that could make ME2 look "generic." Shooters, are just that. Shooters. Go into an area, kill, rinse and repeat. What makes one stand out - is the story as to why you're character is there doing this. To me, this is what makes ME (1,2 and 3) stand out above the rest. It's not just ONE story. You can go through and do different dialogue options that could result in different things (siding with one alien race over another over geneophage and such). And for the most part, if you import save games from the previous ME games, it "remembers" (almost everything) you did previously (if you sacrificed "X" ally in the previous game to save "Y" ally). and... Agree with Dat. I own and played and beat EVERY Halo game. From the first one, down to ODST, Reach, etc. I enjoy the Halo games. The difference is, the Halo games don't have that complex of a story (ODST did better than the others in terms of story). I think the reason for this is - Halo is all about Master Chief. Just Master Chief. Everyone else is going to be cannon fodder. ME offers you allys that have distinct personalities and different dialogue things that they will say when you speak to them (and sometimes, when you're walking around they will say things). To me, this helps me get more involved in ME. It's not just about me shooting up people and things. It's about my allies that are with me, who have these personalities that seem pretty real. It's not about keeping me alive, but it's about keeping my team alive - not because I want to, but because I come to a point where I care about these characters. So to me, ME is anything BUT a "generic shooter." It's by and far, a superior shooter in my opinion. I get some don't dig the mechanics, and prefer a more realistic type shooter (Battlefield 3 and such being extremely popular). That doesn't concern me. I play shooters for the story that I get - WHILE I shoot stuff. You praise HALO. It's good. But in my view, not even close to ME. Gears of War, for that matter, to me is much more superior than Halo. (Gears of War being my second favorite shooter, sometimes beating ME, depending on my mood).
  20. That's pretty awesome that he made it... Because chances are he won't get recognized as Roger Wilco... so that he took the time to do it probably means he did it because he's passionate about the game and not the recognition.
  21. I wasn't questioning it - just wasn't certain. I only played ME2 in normal mode (beat it with several different character builds). But with ME3, on the second play through, I did switch it to RP Mode (where your team mates are stronger since combat isn't a main concern).
  22. I know you can do that on ME3... I didn't know you could do that in ME2?
  23. Um. Generic? You get to play action games where you can make different choices, via dialogue, that impacts how various things will turn out? And that selecting certain things will actually change how it all impacts everything? That's generic action? I must have a list of these generic action games you have played. Because ME is anything but my "generic action" type of game.
  24. hahahah! Not a Minecraft player (but I recognize the graphics) - pretty awesome stuff.
  25. Yeah. It really did. Nothing ever came of it, despite me and Alan's numerous submissions (usually at least one a week until SpaceVenture got funded). No idea what they're going to do with it, if anything, sadly. In the end, it was fun to do - and learning (once again) that Twinkies are the most vile thing to eat in this world.
