Re: Book Summary Help?

Seriously, you have a guy that can fly, traveling with his girlfriend, and her sister is after them both. Why not say that instead of some made up crap word that no can possibly understand, that makes zero sense? With all due respect you've got to play down to your audience, us dumb ones who haven'...

Re: OK I admit it mobile gaming sucks

Thats not wholly true of music. The labels tried to feed kids white guys like Pat Bokne doing covers of black artists songs, but kids wanted the originals. MTV didn't really want Micheal Jackson for a time. Wolfman Jack made his name because hhis station was the end around labels too. Wasn't Motown ...

Re: Super Retro-Cade (Retrobit)

Hurrah! Count me among the Retro Cade owners. All I have done is unboxed it. I was happy to see it came with an HDMI cable, and it has AV output. The AV out was unexpected, and nice for me as I often game on a CRT. Its about the size and weight I expect of these units. I think AT Games intentionall...

Re: OK I admit it mobile gaming sucks

I have the argument on both sides. Without much of a barrier, anyone ca publish a youtube video, an ebook, record a song, etc. Having a middle layer between content creator and consumer can both block things that they don't like, but also filter out the crap. I have played great mobile games, like t...

Re: Dragster record being questioned

When that was posted, 5.57 was not tying the world record. Now it is. I notice he is using a Genesis controller. You should have to do it with a joystick, as God intended As Dave pointed out, how would we really know these days? The whole thing would have to be witnessed by trusted people, whoever t...

Re: Book Summary Help?

Try to reduce the number of made up words and names; it makes the description sound corny. Floating Circus instead of Seventh Swordfish, the land instead of Yasmik, etc. I agree. I think I noted that before too. You have to lead people in to strange names slowly. Harry Potter is a world of muggles ...

Re: OK I admit it mobile gaming sucks

I want to draw a distinction of portable gaming (Game boy, PSP, 3DS, maybe the Switch) and mobile gaming (iPhone, iPad, Android products). The portables are built for gaming, and may be built around physical controls. Mobile products are communications devices that game, or built using those operati...

Re: Superhero shows on Hulu?

Awesome write up scotland! If you want inspiration maybe consider reading some of the best? Good luck! Thanks Actraiser. I agree, read some of the best. I also found a book on my bookshelf - "Writing for Comics with Peter David", written in 2006. Comics has its share of both famous writer...

Re: Superhero shows on Hulu?

I'm looking for more traditional superhero stuff. That's what I'm trying to write, but with my own twist to it. Traditional? I am not sure what they means. Here is a rough breakout for comics: The early stuff to about the mid 50s is the Golden Age. Its a big mix there, from silly stuff with talking...

Re: Superhero shows on Hulu?

Also, think outside the cape and cowl set. The Shadow radio show, the Dick Tracy comic strip, Doc Savage or Tarzan novels, etc Indeed. Knowing where the genre came from is a good idea. Besides, Edgar Rice Burroughs is cool. :) ERB gets some bad press these days, for not being PC. Its kinda hard to ...
