Aw, you ruined it.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:58 AM)

@robowang, I would have laughed at the joke if I knew who is Brian Kilby

I love this board. I'm still convinced you're all Brian Kilby.

beetleman, if you read this I'm not saying this as a fact, it's just a thought.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:42 AM)

*Beetleman logs on and reads this*

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:40 AM)

I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

@  Touch My Thighs : (24 May 2016 - 05:00 AM)

No need to ban him, just remove his ability to post new topics. Problem solved.

@  Msol : (24 May 2016 - 01:01 AM)

So what's the over/under for when beetleman is banned?

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2016 - 03:03 PM)

is anyone watching more web original shows and streamed TV shows than actual TV channels?

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2016 - 10:49 AM)

I wanted to charge my book, but couldn't cause my brother was charging his cigarette... the future is stupid.

@  Pennpenn : (22 May 2016 - 09:05 AM)

I hate that situation where you spend ages to find something, then realize it isn't charged, but you can't find the charging cable.

@  Locoman : (22 May 2016 - 09:00 AM)

Only cartoons I keep up with are RID2015, Rescue Bots, Adventure Time, Steven Universe, and Rick & Morty

@  Locoman : (22 May 2016 - 08:59 AM)

no, I don't really watch cartoons on tv no more

@  tffan01 : (22 May 2016 - 03:54 AM)

@Locoman, have you watched the cartoon I was talking about (Supernoobs) though?

@  Telly : (21 May 2016 - 10:34 PM)

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:34 PM)

Unless we're talking about the guy from Hunger Games, President Snow. He has feet.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:33 PM)

Snow doesn't have feet. It's just piles of frozen water.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:29 PM)

you wish, bud. let's see those bastards operate under six feet of snow

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:28 PM)

What I got out of that was that Canada really wants to have a plague of locusts unleashed upon them.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

y'see, under canadian law all broadcasting corporations operate under a mandate that at least 40% of the content they broadcast must be Canadian content. Naturally, this applies to kid's cartoon channels as well, which is a fairly niche market these days. So animators slap together very cheaply animated flash cartoons and air them in the daytime hours to fill the quota. Hence endless reruns of Johnny Test, Almost Naked Animals, etc.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:25 PM)

Chaos is bad for business, y'see.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:17 PM)

You're a criminal mastermind. Shouldn't you want to wreak havoc?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 May 2016 - 09:16 PM)

You really want to be responsible for the creation of giant radioactive moose?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:13 PM)

Well, I didn't wanna have to do this, but it looks like we have to nuke Canada.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 09:12 PM)

Johnny Test isn't even the worst of it? Mother of God...

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 09:04 PM)

But in Canada, Johnny Test is just one of many terrible flash cartoons. It's not even the worst one.

@  ShadowMan024 : (21 May 2016 - 08:49 PM)

Pft. Cartoon Network aired Johnny Test TEN times a day for a loooooong time.

@  The Doctor Who : (21 May 2016 - 08:01 PM)

Mayhem Hangouts is Go! I repeat the loonies are converging on Google! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

@  Foffy the Sheep : (21 May 2016 - 07:52 PM)

My condolences. It's always sad to hear of the death of a loved one...or someone's sanity.

@  Locoman : (21 May 2016 - 07:44 PM)

Back in the days when I watched TFP on TV, they sometimes aired it six or seven times a day.

I saw this on CAD this morning, and felt the need to share.

http://projectzomboid.com/blog/

Alright, I know there's some hate for him going on here, so let me set the record straight: Tim buckley has nothing to do with this game, I simply found the link on his website. Being a huge fan of all things undead and survival, I then felt the need to SHARE.


Anyway: Indie dev, being released in patched stages much like minecraft, and featuring the zombie survival we all crave. Whats not to like? I'm going to watch this for a while, but probably still end up buying before beta.

Alright, starting to like the... possibilities of this game. It's a tech demo right now, so you die and quick no matter what. I made it all the way through the toturial without getting bit, hurt, setting the house on fire, anything, and some guy walks in with a shotgun and decides he wants the house. He kills the wife, and I ran for it. Right out the front door, round the back, in the kitchen, turned on the oven on my way out so the house would burn down, out the front and into the rest of the city. They actually programmed quite a bit of space to the place, so lots of undead, good terrain...

It's a buyer, thats for sure.

I just ran it on my little netbook (1.6 ghz, 1 gig of ram.) and it ran at basically full speed. I did encounter some problems: namely the wife wasn't on the bed (though you were still interacting with her.) and it couldn't zoom. These might be because the netbook is running xp, because java isn't all up to date, or any number of other things. Going to make sure everything is up to spec and try again.

Edit: updated java, restarted the computer and tried again. Same errors, but it could related to the OS or configuration. I wanted an excuse to upgrade this thing, so I guess I got it. Either way, it runs at full speed (or ridiculously close to it.).

Hmmm. So I installed windows 7 on the netbook. It was a portable edition, now the damn thing boots in about 30 seconds, easily half the time of before. And I ran the game (You just lost it.) but it took far longer to load, was jerky and laggy, and was still missing the wife on the bed.

So, there you go.

Alright. It's now firmly an alpha build, and the first patch has made it... pretty hugging great actually. Zombie behavior has changed some, they tend to wander now, which makes for packs as they have a chance of capturing the attention of meandering zombies in a small number of them go by. I actually got cornered in a building while scavving, and had to retreat up stairs. Ran out of ammo, and that's all she wrote, about a hundred of them descended on me. I killed about half with 11 shells though, so... go me? I wanted to go back and kill the som'bitch what killed my wife, but... yeah.

Go, play it! Fun!

Still have not gotten this yet. I noticed it's in pounds or something rather than US currency. How does this work? Does Google check out take care of this for me? If so does it tell me how much it's going to be in $ before I buy? If not, does anyone know the conversion rate?

Google check out knows the conversion rate of the day, so if you use a credit card like I did, then its all automatically covered for you. It wound up costing me 10 bucks about a week ago.

Spiked bat=love. I killed hordes with it, and only died when I got too far, too tired, carried too much and couldn't find a quiet unlocked place to hunker down. 4 days, 8 hours.

Sounds really interesting. I'll get it, but I think I'm going to wait a bit untill it is more developed to avoid Minecraftitis bordem. You know, you play the content, then a patch comes out, entertaining you for another day... I want to wait just a bit so I have more content at once.

There's no save in the beta version either. It's SUPPOSED to be that way... right now anyway. See, the point of the game isn't winning, its how long you can stave off losing, so no save at the moment. I think the forums mentioned implementing a basic save functionality later, but what form it will take is a crap shoot.

I get that, but it also means that its not possible to play for long periods of time.

Just because you can save doesn't mean you can go back to the last save after you die.

But there needs to be a way to suspend progress while you aren't playing.

I might play more later, but right now I only have a few minutes here and there.

I can last about a half an hour anyway before I do something stupid. Yeah, the lack of any kind of save file is... limiting. I figure they should make it so that it saves when you quit the game, and then deletes it after reload. No reverting to save file that way, but you can still get up and walk away if need be.

Okay. Had my first real playthrough
Spoilers for anybody that may be spoiled by things.


Bandage-Check
Painkillers-Check
Raiding houses-Check (even made a sweet bat with a nail in it)

Got back to the house... was very overloaded...
Couldn't figure out how to make soup! I was just expecting to be able to open the can with a canopener.... I didn't realize the bowl was needed too.

Got really sleepy when I was trying to unload my spoils into my cabinets (I really felt the interface was very awkward here) and make soup.

Got so sleepy that I started having (zombie) halucinations! Cool touch.

Went to bed, figured out the soup thing in the morning.
Heated up the soup, went to put more things away...
And caught my house on fire. I couldn't figure out how to put it out... and I got caught on fire too... Didn't see how to move the girl so I ran. As soon as I opened the door BAM pack of zombies... I laughed.
It was fun.
(but not quite how real ovens work)
