1. The Art of Sidescrolling Platformers 101

    This is kind of a favorites list, but it's meant to be a suggestion for what you should study and know as builders in LBP, especially now that 2 lets us go all out and break the mold. It's like if you were going to tell someone to study the 90's, they'd need to pick up at least one Nirvana and 2 Pac album. These are what I consider prerequisite crash courses.

  2. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Alucard bot started today

    For anyone that cares about sackbot logic and knows/loves Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, today I sat down and got a perfect double jump + wings + shadow, AND the down-up-X sky rocketing gravity jump to work as well on my Alucard (also with shadowy, trajectory trail).

    jackofcourse would be 2 Pac... the guy who can do everything, appeals to everyone, had ...
  4. My Top 5 Creators... and why

    Ok, I think I'm gonna man up and rank some people and put all politics aside... seemed too long to not be a blog :P

    1.) [B]sighwhatever [/B]- my personal fav... his early timeframe of excellence, balance of quality aesthetic, character, storytelling, design, innovation, and continuity gives him an edge because I feel that his best works are what my next choices slowly came to stand on equal or better ground with but not without alot of practice and time. I feel like he set the standard ...
