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 ...

Re: Dragster record taken away

Twin Galaxies has thrown out the 5.51 Dragster record as technically impossible and thrown out all of Todd Rogers records. All of them, and banned him from even trying to set records again. A tweet from Twin Galaxies called it damning information. Some of that evidence is the analysis that 5.51 is j...

Re: I really hate Windows updates

The frequency and involuntary nature of Windows 10 updates is really annoying. I know they want people to have the latest patch, but you wake up to get a weather report and your computer needs to finish installing and configuring a Monday night update. If it at least asked, I could get my weather re...

Re: Predictions about the Death of Consoles

One of the times I felt consoles might be going away was in the mid to late 1990s. basically the 5th generation. I was gaming mostly on PCs at that time. From Doom to Myst to Mechwarrior to Star Wars, the best games seemed to be on PC. Windows PCs had overcome being business machines, and had become...
