Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on Yesterday, 04:34 PM

That made it worth it, honestly.

Once again, the only thing I get out of the big "video game" (with very few video games) extravaganzas is Ocelot's commentary.

Wow, dude! You are seriously incredible at painting these. :o Awesome work!

"Naughty Dog's most ambitious game in their 35 year history."

 

My ass. I'm sure you want to believe that, Druckmann, you disgusting weasel of a human being. I can't believe this guy and what he was allowed to get away with. It makes me so deeply ill that he's allowed to continue doing that and stroke his own ego, and everyone else strokes it with him, after he threw the gaming industry's oldest and greatest woman writer and developer under the bus - and no one noticed or cared.

 

I hope TLOU2 flops on its face. He's a despicable creature and doesn't deserve any of this. He didn't earn it himself, he won it through complaining, lying, hardcore and downright evil manipulation, and attempted blackmail, and then he was allowed to cover the whole thing up so that no one can tell the truth without getting other people in irreparable trouble, so he made himself his own little game development paradise.

 

It's probably the single most incredibly underhanded thing anyone's gotten away with in the gaming industry so far, doing what he did and destroying a beloved game franchise, several people's years and months of very hard work and stress, tearing apart devs and friends at a game studio, and then getting only accolades for it.

 

UGH.

 

Sorry. I try not to rain on the parade with TLOU. I will recede back into the dark waters of silence and let people enjoy the games. But that little self-affirming comment really made me sick, I had to get it off my chest.




#488902 Werewolf's Writing Tidbits

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 21 August 2019 - 02:10 PM

Gee, I haven't posted here in a while.

 

I now post pretty much all my writing on my Patreon, some of it free, some of it paid. I offer 1k word ficlets at a reward tier, if you want to get writing of your own. I'm also willing to negotiate writing commissions.

 

Also on my Patreon is early access to upcoming Caiden short stories! Those will be going public sometime soon.

 

I'll consolidate some of my better pieces and post them here in the future, maybe. And I'll definitely be posting in this thread when the short story collection is available.




#488901 Werewolf's Art

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 21 August 2019 - 02:07 PM

Haven't posted here in a while, since the crossover on the SSLF Discord is strongk, but I figured I'd post here, too, for those who have left our fold (unfortunately).

 

I'm a crazy person and opened potential commissions:

(be sure to view the full image for details)

 

Contact me for pricing info! PMs here on SSLF are fine.

 

 

I also drew a sketch of my friend's dragon character, in dragonborn form:

#488799 What Are You Currently Playing?

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 13 July 2019 - 11:20 AM

Oh man, Ocey. If I had the time and energy right now (I don't, I feel very weird rn actually), I could go into so much detail about just how much the "Nathan Drake collection" broke every single one of the Uncharted games into tiny pieces and only very vaguely attempted to glue them back together. Everything. All of it. From the gameplay to the lightning (they completely screwed the color keys of every level), every aspect of the artistry, how the AI works, how the cover systems work, how the melee systems work, how the triggers work (entire sections of dialogue and music are just gone because the triggers to cue them were REMOVED and sometimes sections glitch out that never, ever had trouble before in all my 450+ gameplay hours of single player experience in UC2 alone), and gosh don't even get me started on the character models and how they completely effed Nate's model all to hell and back using the lowest quality crunch time unfinished thing from UC3 and porting it into every other game and thus removing not only how beautiful his models were but how he progressed artistically and characteristically through the series (looking older, and how his model was altered based on each game's art style, etc), and just...

 

Ugh. I want to write a giant, giant post on it someday. That collection makes me the saddest person on the planet.




#488741 Errant Discord Server

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 13 June 2019 - 02:58 PM

It isn't actually done or active yet, but I figured I'd start sending out invites to the upcoming Errant discord server, so people can start asking questions and familiarizing themselves with how it works.

 

Join it here:

#488725 E3 2019: Whoever wins, we lose

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 11 June 2019 - 10:57 AM

Microsoft ties with Sony for Most Gameplay Shown

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh.

 

Someone call emergency services, Microsoft needs something for that burn.




#488694 E3 2019: Whoever wins, we lose

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 10 June 2019 - 07:45 PM

It's time to say it.

 

I never asked for this.




#488649 E3 2019: Whoever wins, we lose

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 09 June 2019 - 04:43 PM

So the protagonist of Dying Light 2 is being voiced by a totally new guy whose name I already forgot. It's not Roger Craig Smith again ( :( ), and it's not Matt Mercer. I was bouncing between the two in the trailer, couldn't decide which one it might be. I was leaning toward Roger, since his voice is pretty amazing.

 

But no, it's a new guy.

 

Guys.

 

I like him.




#488640 E3 2019: Whoever wins, we lose

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 09 June 2019 - 01:44 PM

Cyberpunk brings:

- cool hot protagonist dude

- he's voiced by Josh Keaton, who emphatically isn't Nolan North, but is okay

- awesome looking setting

- BLADE ARMS OH GOD

- Keanu freaking Reeves

 

I was already sold but what is the word for sold ten times over?

 

Please inject it into my veins now.




#488612 Scorp's RPG Corner - now reaching The Outer Worlds

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 07 June 2019 - 02:56 PM

Too bad it's only called "Baldur's Gate" because it happens to take place in Baldur's Gate (and because they want to try to grab people with nostalgia).

 

Might be fun, though. Who knows. I can't say I like 5e, but whatever. I just wish they'd not pretend it has anything to do with the BG saga, because that's just annoying.




#488597 The Video Game News Thread

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 02 June 2019 - 10:19 AM

I am here for the E3.

 

I will probably not be able to watch the stream (again), but the only part of E3 I legitimately enjoy anymore is Ocey's commentary, anyway. :P




#488538 Fresh start

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 09 May 2019 - 03:48 PM

I'll set up a discord server, then. I'll post here again with an invite link when it's done. It might not be done for a while, as I'm going to revamp it some, simplify, and move all the info here onto the discord.

 

There WILL be changes to the way Errant is run now that it's getting a fresh start. You'll see other big announcements about it later.
