Umbrella Man at the Masked Symposium

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 28, 2011, 6:32 AM
Umbrella Man has something important to say...  www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLjicl…

This video was only uploaded today, but the performance itself is actually several years old at this point - I'm just pleased that for once a video of one of my live performances was uploaded that I didn't hate.

Enjoy!



Rather marvelous addition to the Umbrella Man library provided by :iconquest007:

Got three minutes to spare on a short documentary that a couple of gentlemen from the University of Newcastle made on me and the Umbrella Man?

Let's face it, video game bosses kick ass - specifically, yours. It's all well and good to root for the hero, but you can't deny that some of the most colourful and interesting characters in all of gaming are the Bosses that stand between you and victory.

Let's see if you can live up to that legacy! (Before you delve into this contest, it might be a good idea to remind yourself what sorts of Bosses there are! tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php… )

Now - this is a pretty laid-back contest, and to make it easy for any number of people to get involved, there will be three different paths you can take:

#1 - Present yourself, or one of your characters, as a unique video-game boss.

#2 - Present yourself, or one of your characters, doing battle with a video-game boss comprised of one of My characters.

#3 - Present yourself, or one of your characters, taking the place of an existing video game boss and battling the hero.

This contest is open to both writers AND picture-makers  (and comic artists, gmodders, whatever tickles your fancy) - so long as you acknowledge the following tips:

You will gain points for: pretty much anything under the sun - so long as I can enjoy seeing (or reading about) your boss character, and how they would slot into the theoretical 'overall' story (which is also up to you). Obviously you'll do better if you can make it feel like your boss not only belongs there - but would be a fun challenge, but not unbeatable... lest they become 'that One boss'.

You will lose points for: quoting tired internet memes - copying age old jokes that have long since ceased to be funny - claiming that your 'character' is original, when they're clearly just a variation of an existing one... As much as I Love team fortress 2, your Engy with a rugged and manly beard does Not qualify as 'your character'.

And of course, you will more than likely gain points if you include Umbrella Man or Lady Cane somehow (even if they're just sipping tea in the background). They are NOT compulsory, as I don't want to stifle your creativity - but it certainly won't hurt your chances :P

The contest will end whenever I decide to end it - and I reserve the right to call it off if only a couple of people enter (those 16 prizes aren't going to give themselves away for free y'know! ... speaking of which)

PRIZES!

As you might have guessed given the 'game' theme of this contest, ALL 16 PRIZES are games! (And Yes, that means that there can be up to 16 winners - so for the love of God, ENTER! You might win if only because of the sheer laziness of your fellow artists/writers). Here's the list in full - the first place winner will have first choice - followed by second, third, etc etc. Any leftover games...... I'll deal with later.

Well, greetings from the 2014 Spore community!

I'm guessing it's long gone from your system, yes?

I have actually been playing it a bit recently 'cause I got a bit hooked on the idea of it once again.

I was disappointed that a lot of the old mod sites have shut down, 'cause the 'expanded space' mod was absolutely brilliant.

Honestly, the only reason I stopped in the first place was because I got a bit grouchy at the total absence of customer service.

They had an achievement-server meltdown at one point, and everyone lost their awards - not a problem for the most part since they restored them within a few days.

The difference was that I'd been given one of those 'must-be-given-to-you' achievements for having an adventure featured on the front page of the Spore website - and when the achievements were reset, I didn't have mine anymore.

I sent them a few emails about it - but to this day it hasn't been restored, or the emails even acknowledged.

At the time I was in the middle of university, doing several shows per week and still working in amongst all that - and I just didn't have time for a game whose creative team didn't have time for their customers... Which in retrospect was a darn shame, 'cause I loved making those old adventures.

I loved slipping in all the hidden side-quests that weren't actually required to beat the mission, but rewarded exploration with a more elaborate story. Good times.
