Shamus Young on Games for Windows Live

Shamus Young on Games for Windows Live:

it’s a buggy mess that crashes more often than a drunken Stevie Wonder playing Grand Theft Auto with a Wii Remote.

I almost had to buy a new laptop as I read that and the follow-up:

If this is Dancing with the Stars then Steam just came out and danced like Fred Astaire on moon gravity. Then Games for Windows LIVE came out on crutches, knocked over the scenery, and threw up on the judges.

Rymdreglage – 8-bit trip

Posted in english, Funny, Games, Video with tags , , , , on May 9, 2010 by NachtVorst

WARNING: Extremely geeky video!

Amazing video, made mostly out of Lego, featuring all things related to the 8-bit era. I love the sprites from International Karate +, one of my favorite C64-games. The PacMan and Pong sequences are very well made too. (via twentysided)

Chainmail Bikini Bonus

Shawn and Shamus just uploaded the final bonus episode of Chainmail Bikini!

It’s a fitting epilogue to the story. If you haven’t read it yet, this is your chance to read the whole thing in one go!

Chainmail Bikini: Special Edition – now with all new Bonus Commentary!

Posted in english, Funny, Games with tags , , , , , , on February 24, 2010 by NachtVorst

Anyone enjoying D&D and roleplaying games has probably already read this, but for the few that missed it like I did: Go and read Chainmail Bikini by Shamus Young and Shawn Gaston right now!

Chainmail Bikini: The Nightmarish Legend of Deuse Baaj.

It’s a comic about an RPG-campaign where the most epic conflict is between the players and the DM, a bit like in Shamus’ hilariously brilliant DM of the Rings (but with real drawings instead of screens from LotR) with a big dose of Dork Tower and Knights of the Dinner Table. (If you haven’t read DMotR yet, shame on you! Go read that too, like right now! See you in a week or so). I love how the look of the characters changes when they’re in and out of character, very nice touch!

I missed this great series on its first run and after a while it was completely lost after the server the comics were hosted on was reorganized. But once again there’s proof how hard it is to remove anything from the Internet: the images and most of the original comments have been recovered and Shamus and Shawn have been so kind as to provide us with bonus comments, a bit like a director’s commentary.
