Re: Hard Modes

I remember once attending a panel by Jerry Lawson where he bragged about working dynamic difficulty out on the Fairchild Channel F. I think it was for a helicopter game? The player shoots down a lot of enemy helicopters and the enemies get faster, they get shot down a lot and the enemies slow down. ...

Re: Animotion and Car Tunes

And he was wrong to do so, because Grant is rad and doesn't get enough credit.

But I guess after a literal decade no one cued him in that Grant's not actually a pirate.

Re: In the Land of Wonderful Dreams

I dreamed it was sometime around the early 80s, and a visitor came from the future. She had evidence warning us that terrible things would happen if this certain family was left to their own devices, but while she knew who the family was she had no idea what they needed to do or not to to avoid her ...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior III: you mean they made a sequel to that one game with all the instant death monsters?

I'm just here to link the Yuji Horii interview early. Going back to DQII for another moneyshot... Nakamura: Yeah. You yourself didn’t even have time to play the game all the way through! Horii: I had to write the scenario and adjust the game balance at the same time, so I was very busy. I too playe...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior II: Warrior Hardier!

As promised, a Yuji Horii DQ2 interview. It's less spoilery than I remember, but I think at the end is still a good time to look at it. Some quick interesting things: Naturally, game balancing isn’t something you get right after one pass. We repeated this process over and over. At first it went in ...

Re: Let's play Dragon Warrior II: Warrior Hardier!

There's an interesting interview over at shumplations about the making of DQ2 that I was going to post at the end (because spoilers) but basically they were working on the balancing right up to the very last minute. It's entirely possible they just didn't have time to fully balance out Rhone.

Re: Hottest Disney Song Ro68

I don't know how to feel about Pink Elephants on Parade. As a song, it's not great. As song+animation, it's quite possibly one of my favourite sequences in a Disney film. If I'm voting on this for pure musical quality, I'd have to skip it. But since these are as much about feelings as anything else ...

Re: Star Wars

The comparison feels unfair to fanfic generally without some kind of negative adjective. Fanfic is often bad, but it's rarely safe and never feels like fantasy by committee. It's starting to feel more like the original movies are good fanfics of the Disney universe. Well, yes, I mean fanfic in a ne...
