Verizon iPhone 4…and 5? “Yeah right,” or, “Yeah! Right!”

January 4, 2011 1 comment

So, it’s finally the new year, that is, “early 2011”, the time when the Verizon iPhone 4 is (yet again) expected to appear. Incidentally, as many of you may know, Jobs likes to announce his shiny new iphone-related products in the summer, but more than likely if the VI4 does come out this year as expected by many writers (see this, this, this, and all the other google results…I can’t do everything for you!) it’ll be early on because, well, more time on the market = more money.

I gotta be honest. I’ve been waiting for this for a while. Ever since I’ve started developing apps for iPhone, I’ve developed a sort of techno-crush on it. So the VI4 would be a dream come true for me. However, supposedly Apple is planning on releasing the iPhone 5.

Megaman Battle Network Chrono X 3rd Demo OST now online!

March 27, 2010 1 comment

That’s right! Now that the third demo for Chrono X is out on the official Battle Network Chrono X site, I figured it was time to upload the rest of the Demo 3 OST (15 tracks total) to my youtube account.

Check it out here:

Chrono X Demo 3 Out for download!

March 24, 2010 Leave a comment

You read correctly! After much anticipation, the highly awaited third demo is out for the Chrono X project! In this demo, you can play all the way up to the first boss, and then enter Demo+ mode for more fun such as testing out the navicustomizer AND the mysterious Me.m.e.n.t.o system!

Dozens have already downloaded the demo (including me), now it’s your turn!

Go for it!

As with any project, there will be some issues, so MaxRock (our programmer) MIGHT end up releasing another version of the demo. But we shall see. I’m already incredibly pleased with all the work he’s done on the demo thus far though, so I think he deserves a break.

And now that the project is out, I will be uploading the rest of the music to my youtube channel ASAP ^_^_^_^_^_^ (yes, that was a chain of ^_^ smileys…deal with it. I’m just THAT excited =D)

The SoulScroll Lives!

Yes, I’m back in the world of blogging! However, there are a few conditions. I’ve got a number of things I’d like to go over in this post, so here we go.

First of all, further posts will be focused more towards music and general game design, rather than Game Maker itself. Since I’ve moved on from programming to music design, that’s what I’m going to be talking about for the majority of my posts. Remember, though, I said “majority”; I’ll still be writing quite a lot about stuff on the GMC, yoyogames, Game Maker in general, etc. so if you like to come here to read about that kind of thing you don’t have to worry. I’ll also probably put up a new tutorial every so often. However, music is a large part of my life, so most of the discussion will be about that; a lot of it will be about music in video games since that’s what I intend to do, so at least there’s that.

Yay for beatboxing

This is just…crazy. I can’t explain it any better. Crazy. Oh, and good.
I know that they’re old, and they have absolutely nothing to do with game maker or game design, but I couldn’t help it. Part three is my favorite.

Yes, Agalag. As in, my yoyogames competition03 entry. As an alien overlord, you must naturally go head to head with the most horrible foe of all time – the Player. If you’re going to keep him at bay, you’ll have to command your ships to work together smoothly. Collect trophies, earn new models, and unlock two new game modes. How long can your fleet survive?

Now that I’ve finished typing that out for a fifth time, here’s a link:

It was a great day for me, until I ran into the bug and online highscore security holes. I rushed out an update (V5), which sadly rendered old save files incompatible, and also rendered old versions of the game to be unable to submit highscores. However, everything should be dandy with the new version.

EDIT: And of course, it wasn’t.  Found another bug which most of you probably would have never run into, but still, I removed it and released a new version.

The game’s currently rated 2.3/6 stars. Considering, though, that the average for the best games in the competition is 2.5, I’m not very depressed.

Here is the GMC Topic.

Note that the game can now only be downloaded by going to yoyo and downloading it from there.  As I released inevitable small updates it began to become a nuisance to modify the links in every thread in every forum I posted this game on.

So check it out, and report back if you happen to find any bugs, holes, etc. Thanks.
