Shame Block Wars cut that scene out and was made too late.

In fairness I cut the Jawa scene due to time and relevancy to the plot. I really just needed 3P0 and R2 to get to Luke and I always felt the entire Jawa sequence I had written for the 2009 version was a little bloated and not a lot to parody.

I also cut the trash compactor scene for the same reasons.

However, on topic, this sandcrawler looks sick, if I were to ever "special edition" Block Wars I'd consider writing in some more Jawa stuff just to include this bad boy.

I know this is a repost from the official topic but I'm putting it here as a quote text for those who don't frequent general discussion:


That's right, as of this Friday, December 22nd, 2017, Block Wars will have officially turned 10 years old:


Now I dunno about you, but that's actually kinda fucking scary and reminds of my inevitable mortalityreally cool!

So, how are we going to celebrate this monumental occasion? This Friday, around 11am EST to 11pm EST (ALL DAY) I'm going to be throwing up a live stream on my blockalnd channel (youtube.com/swhollibl) where we're going to hang out, talk about block wars, star wars (last jedi spoilers probably), and you're going to get to see behind the scenes the filming of the battle of hoth! I'll show you how I shoot scenes, how I edit, and how I pretty much coerced all these people into helping me make these stupid movies!

Mark your calendars! May the 4th December the 22nd be with you.

I've been experimenting with an idea for a topdown shooter- fast paced, very much inspired by cool online flash games from 2005 (xgen studios)- and I've come to a point in my prototype I'd like some feedback.

So as I have it now, the camera follows the mouse crosshair (it being in the center), and the corsshair can never move more than something like two times as far as the player (the player sprite is 32x32, so the cursor can only move the camera up to 64 pixels away from that). The reason I did this is because in a lot of top down shooters I always feel like my camera never shows me enough of the screen to get an accurate shot.

The problem is, this method also feels pretty disorienting. I'd like some input from you guys if you have any about how I might go and fix this problem or if I should just scrap the idea all together.

Here's a playable demo: http://swholli.com/games/topdown/

EDIT: I fixed the camera! I was using a far too linear method, jumping the camera's x and y coordinates in a square instead of a smoother way that creates a boundary radius the camera can travel on. The demo now shows the more fluid system in action if you care to check.

Sorry to have to use exploits to keep this thread alive, we've just been busy planning the movie.

I've finished the script officially, Cowboy has modeled an ingame, functioning ATAT (if you've seen the production topic), and I've slowly gotten all the voice actors to contribute their full parts. We've shot some scenes but none that are enough to cobble a trailer together. As soon as I have one though I'll post it immediately.

All BLC members, if you have any ideas for smaller videos you want help with, let me know. We could always stand to have some little projects going during our large ones so this topic (and clan) doesn't need necro bumping again.

What?

What started back in February as an idea I had for Freek and I to do a collab video soon turned into a stand alone venture as a pilot for a new web show I was working on. So, the maiden voyage of The Swholli Show turned into this. It was originally gonna be one long episode, but I realized quickly that 700+ games in one video, even at 30 seconds devoted to a game, that'd be a fucking five hour video.

This should prove to be a daunting task to finish, so the idea now is to just have it be an ongoing series where I play about 20-25 games per episode and finish it over the course of a couple of months.

Right now there's only one episode (split into two parts because it wasn't originally supposed to be uploaded) but you can watch those here now:





As always, feedback is always appreciated!

The Scores

By the end of the series the idea is to take my top ten favorite games and my top ten worst games, and seeing how I'll have experience playing every goddamned game my list probably won't look like everyone's list. I'll give more in-depth reviews of the twenty best/worst games at the end.

Here's the games I've played so far, and the scores I give them out of ten, in alphabetical order as according to Wikipedia.
