Top 59?

Weird number for a “top -number here something something-” video. That’s because I am unconventional and cool. If you’re not convinced, get this: it’s also a prime number.

If your mind is not yet sufficiently blown yet, know that this very video has all the shit great Newgrounds games that appeared in the Flash Wednesdayren series, sorted by rating into a comprehensive list. Wow!

That’s not all though! Listen here: there were only 58 games that appeared in the Flash Wednesdayren episodes. What is this madness?! Did I lie in the video’s title, am I that scummy of a fucker? No my friend, the video has a really spooky twist to it! Without any further spoilers, go on, watch the linked video to find out! Unless you already did and are reading this after the fact. In which case, damn.

And as a usual reminder, the theme of the next 10 episodes can be voted for here. I have originally estimated the date wrong, so the dealine has been extended to the 6th of August.

Pecan is love

So, the latest Wednesdayren is out, this time with another great theming/holiday selection. The usual. Besides that, it however is the 9th episode of the current Newgrounds series, which could potentially switch for the next 10 episodes, were you willing.

It’s a crude idea of how the series function, to not have the topics rot and become stale – the base material changing after 10 weeks. Coincidentally, it’s the people, you, voting and deciding what gets played. Really. Unbelievable perhaps, but it’s true. Here is the poll even! https://goo.gl/Q7evtG

This one even has custom answers! Keep in mind that it has to be game-related for me to consider, so if somehow “hot homemade prono videos” gets the most votes, I reserve the right to reject the notion.

But yes: do feel free to vote. And possibly watch the newest episode:

Ultra realistic flash games

I have to say: personally, worst episode yet contender. Learning for exams, extra work and trying to boost Gut in Overwatch while coming down with an illness of some description does not contribute; simply put, I am quite tired and I think it shows, the commentary being worse than usual. Unlike previously, however, (aside from the fact I have no time on Thursday), I am not liking the idea of publishing those on different days anymore. The whole point of consistency is not to do that, or so I am told, and that honestly is one of the few purposes of this series.

So, have a rather underwhelming episode. I promise I’ll come back next week, sweeping in with the cool memes and yokes the hip kids use nowadays. Also special effects. Sparkles, confetti. Good things.

Newgrounds gets worse, somehow

If you asked me a week ago what are some really questionable PR practices, chacnes are “promoting a gamedev program by making a game creation contest with a tight time limit aimed at people with no programming experience” would be pretty high on the list. But mistaken once again, the masterminds behind Construct 3 proved me wrong.

In the newest Wednesdayren episode, I exlore the great world of hastily made Construct 3 games, half of which are apparently based on pre-existing templates only with minor edits and some (BEAUTIFUL) custom sprites added. Looked at Construct 3 after recording – have to say it’s atleast not as bad as Construct 2 and there seem to be some nice new features. In light of that, this C3 game jam endeavour perhaps seems even more tragic.
