2007.07.16 - 80s Chair Band

I got bored and made a video of the chair demo. Why not? 😀

So here it is:

And, if you prefer to watch it in non-youtube-uglyvision, you can get a higher quality (6mb) WMV here:

So. Much. Chair. (I suggest you download rather than try to stream, it’ll go faster)

2007.07.08 - Missile(?) Command

I’ve been playing Missile Command on XBLA.

One thing bothers me, though:

Where ARE the missiles?

The enemies are like these fireball things.
When I shoot, I shoot these weird lightning bolts.

How can it be “Missile Command” without any actual missiles?

Personally, the lightning is stupid – in the original, the missiles launched at a certain speed, and you could get a really good feel for how fast they were getting to where they needed to go. In the new version, the lighting charges, sure, but you can’t see how close it is to actually going off. I think that’s a step BACK from the original’s gameplay.

Oh well, I’m still playing it. 🙂

PS – I hate the smart bombs.
