Well, I'm still here with my girlfriend...
And though I've been definitely intending to get work done on at least one of my games, I've actually got little done at all, unfortunately.
The mere idea of work on them seems stressful, so I sort of want to just not work on them at all while I'm here, have this as a much-needed holiday, but I'm so CLOSE to finishing MARDEK 3 that it seems so wrong to take a break now!

Still, I've decided that I probably SHOULD consider this as a break, but I've got a lot of time and we don't have all that much to do all day, so I'll probably want to work on things at some point anyway... Hmm. We'll see.

I've been playing a lot of games though. ROMs of SNES and GameBoy games, mostly. For the sake of inspiration. RPGs and Platformers... It's been a while since I've really played any games, so it's inspiring and motivating.

Oh, but that reminds me about the last news article where I asked for people to mention Flash platformers... It was, uh, sort of disappointing, apparently, since not only were most of the games linked to not even Flash, but I'd actually heard of and played all but one of the games that people had mentioned, which is surprising because I don't often play games because I just don't hear about them. I was expecting people to mention loads of games I'd never heard of so then I COULD hear about them, but have there just not been any good Flash platformers in ages, then? Or do you people just not play Flash games? I thought people here WOULD if they play my games... hmm.
Anyway, I can't really play Flash games with this horrible dial-up internet I have here, so it was probably rather silly writing that article anyway!

So, uh, sorry I've not got a lot done recently; I know this trip thing was so badly-timed (since originally we wanted to meet in April or something), but hopefully if I have a break NOW, I can get a lot done quickly when I do get back in about three weeks.

I'm not complaining or anything, but pesudo hasn't posted in a while. This probably means has taking advice from some of us and actually resting and doing his own thing. So kudos pseudo!!

Either that or I'm going to refresh the page and there will be a new post...

Well, I haven't been to this site for.... 7-8 months I guess :/. Looks like I left around the time Raider 2 was released... so about 7 months sounds right. I thought Pseudo would have released Mardek 3 by now, but it looks like it's coming along nicely but still not finished. This somewhat makes me wonder... as the development time increases, the expectation level of the general audience increases. Say the reception of the game derives from the actual quality minus or divided by the expectation, it may be the fact that the expectation's growth rate exceeds the growth rate of the quality of this game, meaning, it's not, in the long run, beneficial for one to drag on the development of a game for this absurdly long, because you're not going to get the responses that you wanted from the more hardcore fans. Just saying this because nothing in life can be perfect, and there's no reason for one to strive for perfection only to drift further away from it.

In response to my own comment, I think my economics class is really getting to me -_-. Gotta purge myself in a long journey called Spring Break.

Take all the time you need. I have seen plenty of sad stories of games releasing early before they were really done. I know that waiting a long time for a game to release can be annoying, but it is better then having a game that is released quickly and is not very good. Honestly, I'd rather wait a while longer and have Mardek 3 be really done.

There's a saying, that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything. I'll admit, it has its merits, but I prefer my own adaptation: If you don't have anything new to say, shut the hell up! I think nearly everyone here agrees that there are too many delays on this release, and that it's irritating. What's more irritating is the complaints people are making that don't contribute anything to any discussion and when I say that they don't contribute, I don't mean that it doesn't improve FigHunter in any way, I mean that they're all repetitive and unoriginal I mean, my God, out of all the complaints that have been made so far, there are probably only about, four, that aren't more or less identical to one another so, I'm going to go ahead and tell you something I've already said twice: find something better to do than parroting the whining of other people!

You may have noticed the run-on sentence. I was trying to do a Perry Cox-style rant, which means that if you were in any way offended by what I said, you've caught me at a time when I could not possibly care less about it because I would have to try to care less, and if you have to make an effort to not care about something, then you show enough interest in it to not want to have any interest in it. Also, what's with the POPs; you have bubble gum or something?

The POPS! are the way the site filters swear words. For example if I were to say "F*ck you mate" It would come out as "POP! you mate" Or "smeg you mate".

Well, then if you can't say anything, then what's the point of being here in the first place?

M3's gonna be sweet pseudo, but I'm sad that by the time it comes out, I won't have my computer, and I haven't been allowed to access game sites since I accidentally clicked on a virus.

I think I have the same problem finishing things as you do. I have been putting things off for months, sometimes years. Then I regret not doing it much sooner, but fail to change. The only thing that works for me is to just REALLY push myself and force myself to do it.

But on a different note, in an earlier post, you were talking about ad revenues. I think you should put the ads in the game itself, like Battalion Nemesis or Sonny 2. Usually the ads are really close to the buttons you click on for gameplay, they are annoying to players but they really work.

Um, if it's annoying to the players, then they won't play future games....and even though it gets more money RIGHT NOW, it'll prevent him from getting any in the future...

I've played Sonny 2, and it isn't that annoying to have the ads where they are. What kind of player would not play a game because the ads were nearby? If the game is any good (and these are Psuedo's games, they will be good) then the players will return.
