The first 2 Batman Ps 1 Games ( Review and Tips )

So, after a long time of nothing for me, i decided to give a little retrospective to two Games i played trough, the first 2 Dc Comics based Playstation 1 Games, which are both based on Batman. I will give my personal Opinion on them and give one hint for each game, to make the game easier. Batman Forever - The Arcade Game This game is based on the Movie Batman Forever, not only would it be better to watch the Movie first, it is required that you watch the Movie first, because this is one of those Games that explain nothing. There are no real cutscenes, there is no real Dialog except for some Audio Clips from the Movie, which are like 4-5 Catch Lines and thats it. The Levels seem unrelated to each other and if you dont know the Plot of the Movie, you will probably dont understand anything that goes on in this Game. Apart from the lack of Story telling ( except for the Manual maybe ), the game also lacks a save feature. Yeah sure, you can save, but only your Highscores. In the Game itself you cant save anything and you have to play trough the entire game at once, without passwords, without stops and no way to recover continues. And the Highscores are so easy to beat in contrast to the actual game, that you dont even have to play the entire game to already break every record. So whats the point in even trying? You get nothing if you beat the game, except for some Credits. Apart from these negative things, the game is kinda fun. Its just that the difficulty is so high, even on the easy setting, that i wasnt even able to beat this game. So the game was fun for like 2 Days until i realized that i wasnt getting anywhere and i looked on the Internet for help. I am no gaming god and those beat em up games, specially arcade ones, are just to difficult for me. So all in all, the game was just okay. It was meh. Mediocre. Was fun for a few Days then it turned into frustration. HINT: Get a second Controller, once you run out of Continues for the first Player and are on your last life, press start on the second Controller and you get the same amount of Continues again, that you had with the first player and then you just continue the game as the second Player. If you choose 7 Continues on the Menu Screen, you get 14 Continues in total with this play method. Batman & Robin Oh, Batman and Robin...made by the same People that made the other Batman Game. Based again on a Movie of the same name, this game shares some similarities. With that i mean, that even if this Game now has Cutscenes, it still explains barely anything and some cutscenes dont even make sense because they didnt even happened in the Movie that way. EXAMPLE ( SPOILER ALERT ) : The very last cutscene, Mr Freeze is defeated and on the ground and Batman just trows some Jewelry from his sick wife on the Ground. Um...in the Movie he explained that they cured his wife from a disease, in this game this scene could also simply mean, that his wife his dead and Batman just trows her Jewelry on the Ground to really break Mr. Freezes spirit or something. Also it explains freaking nothing, if you havent watched the Movie. Apart from the lack of Story telling again, this game is also lacking in telling you what the heck you are supposed to be doing. Instead of giving you Missions, this game is basically telling you, that you have to find that out by yourself.  By collecting Clues...which most of the time tell you nothing about the place you should be going. I started this Game so many times over again, because i got stuck with the hints and had no idea where i was supposed to be going...i dont get it. Some People defend this Game by saying : "Just get the clues, dummy !" I DID! I FREAKING DID AND THEY TOLD ME ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!! Most of this Clues arent even Mission related and just tell you Story stuff, that might have been better explained with some cutscenes. So, let me get this right...in order to even be able to play the damn game, you have to collect every single Clue in the game, because of so many unhelpful ones, while at the same getting shoot down by constant spawning enemys and dying constantly. Okay...maybe this would have been fine, if this Game wouldnt also have a TIME LIMIT! How the heck are you supposed to do all of this? During a time limit? Every single time, before every Mission? This game is so unnecessary complicated, difficult and outright frustrating that i really wonder how anyone would have fun while playing this. Sure, the Graphics look nice, the Cutscenes look alright, the Music is great and the Grand Theft Auto Style of Gameplay is impressive for Ps 1 Standards! I love it ! But everything else pulls this game way down. All in all this game gets the same rating as the other one, its okay and i really want to say that its kinda good, because of the good graphics, the interesting gameplay, but its confusing and frustrating game mechanics make this game almost unplayable without a guide. Its really a shame, i really would like to say that the game is good, but without a guide...its horror. HINT: Apart from the obvious Hint, to just use a Guide or Walktrough for help, there is another thing. I only tried this on the third day in the game, but it should also work on the other days, i hope. To get Full Life and every single Life Ball for recovery, just go into the Museum at any point ( after you have beaten the first Mission in there of course, otherwise you fail the mission if you just go in and out of the museum while there is a robbery XD ). Go straight forward to the closed main Door, go to the right side and press the Button on the wall. A platform on the left side will go down, quickly run to the left side, glide down to a small room before the platform goes up again and once your down there, get the red item. It will give you 2 Life Balls or Life Pallets or whatever they are called. Go out of the Museum and go back in again, the Red Item will appear every single time. With this Method you can get your full life back before every single Mission, which makes this game so much easier.

Introduction

Introduction: Rimworld in an indie construction and management simulation game created by the team at Ludeon Studios that is about a group of unnamed characters who are stranded on a planet in the frontiers of space (known as a "rim world") where their ship crashed. The game is set in a universe where faster than light travel, supernatural communication and other things are not possible, thus making intergalactic empires impossible. (source: Wikipedia) Since mentioning the game in @SparklingSwirls's ask page, I have decided I would like to start a game of this with members of MLP Forums, and tell the story through this blog, which is separate from my personal blog. List of members who want to be part of my Rimworld game: @SparklingSwirls Myself (duh) @Twisted Cyclone @King of Canterlot @TheTaZe @woodchunks66 @Prospekt @Rikifive @Kyoshi @Totally Cerberus @Berry-Bliss-Sundae @Jade Fire @StrawCherry @Zayfen @Nightfall Thunder @Victoria Sponge If you would like a character in my Rimworld story, or have any questions, please comment on this blog.
 

Back to Writing

I just got back from vacation in northern Europe, so I will return to writing the story. I should have the second chapter and a partial rewrite of the first chapter up in a couple weeks. I will not give a date for when either thing will be released, as that would rush me and result in poor writing, which is why I am planning on rewriting Chapter 1.

To all my friends

This is a message to all my friends and others who are on this forum. I've seen that from time to time people are a bit scared to speak what they really think. For me, especially I get a bit irked when no one tells me something that I did wrong. I personally would like to be told if I ever did something wrong to someone so I can correct my mistakes in the future and improve as a person. So this is a message to tell everyone that if I ever somehow wrong you in anyway, I want you to tell me what exactly I did wrong so I can improve! This is for myself to prevent future arguments and potential loss of friendships to a miscommunication issue. Have a great national hug day everyone!

Pets, Pets, Pets!

Well first blog entry so I guess I should talk about something semi relatable. So my brother acquired some Guinea Pigs today and guess who did NOT read up on how to care for them. He will not leave them alone for a second, not even for them to settle down in their new home. Its frustrating because I know I hes the one who got the Guinea Pigs but I hate to see them like this. on a lighter note, my pet Jacks the Bearded dragon is fairly happy with my room and his tank. welp looks like my first blog post isn't that long...eh ill just put artwork where writings suppose to be, Thanks for reading!

BGP DevLog #178 (Refocus on the Hook)

Starting to build out all the actual tile maps to be used in the beginning segment of the game, up to the first badge and a little beyond, just to get players hooked and hungry for more.      Now, while the completed Alpha won't be a thing until the entire game is playable start to finish, I do believe I can get the first part of the game out within the month of July. While everyone is enjoying the new story, learning the mechanics, interacting with the world, and getting that first badge, I'll be working on getting the demo in as many Let's Player's hands as possible by day and implementing the rest of the design notes by night.      Time to put everything I've got into a super-polished build that'll make people go nuts when they try it. Time to make sure every 30 seconds of the game gives players a Ben & Jerry's sized chunk of fun to chew on. Time to get Battle Gem Ponies on the map!

Musical Manslaughter: Listen To This, Ed

Hello everyone. Woohoo here with another entry of Musical Manslaughter, because you can't spell 'slaughter' without 'laughter' and these songs are jokes. Well, here I am once again not torn into pieces. It's been a while since I've done one of these. No, the last one doesn't really count because silence isn't really a song. Plus, it was April Fools Day. Anyways, on to business. The reason I haven't made an MMS in a while is... well, there isn't a lot of songs that make me angry. I could rant on more Taylor Swift songs but I don't wanna be labeled as "that guy who always rants on Taylor Swift" so I'm trying my best not rant on the same artist(s) over and over again. I just don't wanna be a one-trick pony.  Anyways, I finally found a song that makes me angry, although not really at first. I didn't really pay attention to it until late last year. The more I heard it, the more it angered me. If you haven't already guessed from this entry's title, which is probably none of you, this song is by an artist named Ed... No, not that Ed. He's not even a musician... or real... Wrong Ed again. Great guitarist tho... That's the one. The messy red haired singer known as Ed Sheeran. Yep, I'm ripping apart an Ed Sheeran song. Oh boy, this will be a doozy. I can already hear those fangirls' keyboards tapping. Which Ed Sheeran song am I tearing into? None other than his #1 hit from last year, "Shape of You."  Alright, I've shucked and jived long enough. So why do I hate this song? Let's break it down. So the song starts off with... Actually,  I don't know what you'd call it. Anyways, this song starts off... with this... * Bing, bong, bing-bing, bong, bing-bing, bong, bing, bong-bong-bong * What... the... fuck... Seriously?! There's no way... unless... is this supposed to be the melody? Or is it the beat? Could someone in the comments tell me if this is a melody or a beat? Or even what instrument is being used? For now, I'm just going to call it the "bing-bong." Whatever the "bing-bong" is, it's fucking horrible! It's so bland, cheap, lazy, and unprofessional! Hell, it sounds more unprofessional than Lars Ulrich's snare on St. Anger. At least there's some heart behind that snare. Here, this "bing-bong" sounds so vapid, soulless, and it just sounds an unfinished demo. Alright, enough on the "bing-bong." Hopefully the music will change in the chorus. But then the lyrics come in...  The club isn't the best place to find a lover, so the bar is where I go... I... actually agree with you, Ed. Clubs sucks! They're loud, crowded, obnoxious, and in no way the best place to find a lover. Bars are much more manageable... Wait, why am I talking about clubs and bars?! I need to stay focused. Me and my friends at the table doing shots
Drinking fast and then we talk slow
Come over and start up a conversation with just me
And trust me I'll give it a chance now
Take my hand, stop, put Van the Man on the jukebox
And then we start to dance, and now I'm singing like... So far, the lyrics don't seem too bad. They're generic, yeah, but not infuriating like the songs I tore up earlier. It's just a song about a lonely guy going to a bar hoping to find a lover and eventually finding one. Also, who is this Van the man? I'm just gonna assume it's Van Morrison since you list him as one of your influences. However, after this verse, things go downhill fast...  Girl, you know I want your love
Your love was handmade for somebody like me
Come on now, follow my lead
I may be crazy, don't mind me
Say, boy, let's not talk too much
Grab on my waist and put that body on me
Come on now, follow my lead
Come, come on now, follow my lead What the actual hell, Ed?! Are you singing about... sex!? How could you?! Did you ever think of the children?! OK, I'm overacting but... how do put this. The idea of Ed Sheeran singing about sex feels off to me. I can't really explain why. Why, Ed? Why did you make a sex song? Is it because sex sells? If so, I ain't buying. I'm saving my money to buy peace. Also, and this is just me, this song almost  feels like him selling out. Well, let's just hope he doesn't start twerking. Also, if this is a sex song, then it's one of the most unsexy sex songs ever. Hell, "Dead Skin Mask" by Slayer is eons sexier than this! Ugh, I'm already going crazy and I'm not even at the chorus yet. Speaking of which... I'm in love with the shape of you
We push and pull like a magnet do
Although my heart is falling too
I'm in love with your body
And last night you were in my room
And now my bedsheets smell like you
Every day discovering something brand new
I'm in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I'm in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I'm in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I'm in love with your body
Every day discovering something brand new
I'm in love with the shape of you Where do I even start with this?! Let me break it down... You're in love with the shape of her/her body? In other words, you just like her for her appearance. *sigh* Ed, didn't you parents, teachers, or anyone ever teach you it's what's on the inside that matters? I learned that in like diaper school. Loving someone just for their "shape" comes off as extremely shallow. What if this girl you love for her "shape" actually has a terrible personality inside? Or STDs? What do you think about that? I guess you didn't. "Push and pull like a magnet do"? No, Ed, it's "like a magnet does." Did you really forgo basic grammar just to make a cheap rhyme? This line could've been easily fixed with "like magnets do." Granted, it doesn't flow as well but it makes a lot more sense. Also, I can't believe I'm complaining about the grammar in a pop song. Fuckin' magnets...  I should've brought up this issue in my "Shake It Off" entry so I'll bring it up here. The chorus is too damn long. By itself, it's 40 seconds. With the pre-chorus, it's a whopping 52 seconds long! Are you trying to bore the listeners?! Long choruses should not be in pop songs. They're not catchy. In my opinion, the chorus should've ended after the first "oh-I-oh-I" part. Oh, and remember when I hoped the "bing-bong" would stop at the chorus? Nope, it keeps on playing throughout the chorus. Are you kidding me, Ed?! Are you trying to bore and annoy your listeners?! In pretty much every song I've listened to throughout my life, the music changes with the chorus and/or verses, even if the change is minor. This has to be one of the laziest songs ever, both musically and lyrically. It's even lazier than "Shake It Off," and that's saying something. Then again, maybe the second verse might change my mind... One week in we let the story begin
We're going out on our first date
You and me are thrifty, so go all you can eat
Fill up your bag and I fill up a plate
We talk for hours and hours about the sweet and the sour
And how your family is doing okay
Leave and get in a taxi, then kiss in the backseat
Tell the driver make the radio play, and I'm singing like... Nope, it's more the same shit. More unsexy lyrics followed by that long-ass chorus with that relentless "bing-bong." Do I need to complain any further about the "bing-bong"?! You can make a drinking game out of how many times I say "bing-bong." I haven't been this enraged at a song since "Shake It Off." It just begs the question: What the hell were they thinking?! *sigh* After that, we get to the bridge... I think... Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on This is the only part of the song where the "bing-bong" isn't heard. I would say it's refreshing, but not really. It's just one line repeated eight times, and you all know how much I hate that. Also, I never understood why 'baby' is a pet name. It sounds degrading if you ask me. Alright, I think now's the time to wrap this up. And that was "Shape of You" by Ed Sheeran. Do I hate this song? Well, if you made it this far, you should already know. Now let me break it down for ya. My biggest issue with this song is the music, more specifically, the "bing-bong." Whether it's a melody or a beat, it's one of the worst pieces of music I have ever heard. Aside from the bridge, it's played throughout the entire song. Unacceptable. The lyrics don't help much either. Ed Sheeran's attempt at a sex song comes off as either generically bland or extremely cringy and it also made me feel dirty inside. Overplayed? Hell yeah it was is! I heard this song multiple times a day in late 2017 and I still hear to this day. Just the first note makes my blood pressure skyrocket to Yugopotamia. Now some of you are probably wondering if I hate Ed Sheeran. Surprisingly, I don't. I don't find him as irritating as most other pop stars, but boy, did he make quite a stinker of a song. Now for the final score. And that concludes this entry of Musical Manslaughter. How do you feel about this song? If you like it, that's fine. This is Woohoo, signing off.

Woohoo

Woohoo

Post Surgery Experience

As I'm sure a lot of you are aware of, I went for surgery yesterday morning. The surgery in question is known as a pilonidal sinus excision. I won't explain the procedure in full detail here, but you can research it if you choose to. After the surgery was performed, I spent the remainder of that day and the majority of today in my hospital room, accompanied by my close family. I got discharged at around 2pm today, after being provided with further medication to control my ailments. I will require assistance for my day-to-day activities until the recovery is complete and I'm essentially confined to my couch until then. The fact that I will need assistance doesn't bother me majorly, due to the fact that my disability requires me to have a carer on a normal day anyways. Although, the fact that simple affairs such as sitting or sleeping are now hassles, isn't very fun to deal with. Don't get me wrong, I'm ecstatic that I get to sit around and play video games and watch videos all day long.  I just feel so strange that I can barely do anything else, without causing immense damage to my body. I'm unaware on the time period that the recovery process will eat up, but hopefully things will be back to normal soon. I'm due for a check up, on the next two consecutive Tuesdays. I would like to leave a thank you, to the folks who wished me well under the circumstances that I was in. Words cannot describe how grateful I am to know you. While I don't think that I'll ever be able to match your deeds, just know that I appreciate everything that you've done for me.

Wanting to express some gratitude

Note:  I meant to post this as an entry weeks ago but didn't realize till now that it was in the about this blog section. Right, so this is probably one of the only blogs I will ever make since I'm not entirely into the blogging thing. I wanted to clarify somethings that some might want to know about me. I refound this site again a few weeks ago and started to become active on it. I started with a few posts and maybe like 10 reputation points. In these past few weeks, I have been greeted with some of the most friendly people I have ever came into contact with. I as of recently have tried to look for other people who had interest in ponies like I do since the friend group I participated the most in had some very annoying internal drama with it. I would like to also express my gratitude towards the WPCC and how welcoming they have been in the past few weeks. I hope to stay with you guys for as long as possible now since almost all of you have been incredibly friendly. I would like to especially say thank you to @The Recherche @Wannabrony @Califorum @Harper @SnakeEater and the many others that I didn't mention in here. You all are great and I hope you guys keep on being great.

TheTaZe's Thoughts

I'm going to use this blog as a journal like place for me to express my thoughts that may not be appropriate for a status update or a thread in itself.   Let's start out with something that has been bugging me personally. Do you ever have thoughts of your past haunting you to this day? I've gone under many names during my years on the Internet and this current alias has been the one I've been under the longest. I've had this name since the very beginning of 2014. Admittedly, I have done bad things under this name in the past. I've a jerk to many people and have done some just ugly things that no one wants to know about (not sexually charged or anything, god no). I am admittedly not a fan of my past self. It hasn't been until the recent past year that I wanted to move past my "troll" like behavior and branch out to people. MLPForums is just another stepping stone in my harrowing journey as a person. I thanked you guys for almost a month of support in my last blog and I mean it entirely. I just hope that if any of you do somehow find out about the certain things I've done in the past that it doesn't take away to how you view me as a person.

Trailer music:   "In all seriousness, this was a wonderful conclusion to your reign as King, Jack. I'm glad I wasn't completely erased from your mind following your newfound position of power." Twilight Sparkle. Once Zagreus is stopped, and Equestria reaches the peace we strive to achieve... Starswirl the Bearded. "He is immune to magic in that form. I told you to employ other means!" Zagreus. "But you'll all have each other for support and comfort. And I'm sure Twilight would likely indulge herself into paranoia when no one's looking around..." Stardust Balance. "My student and her wonderful friends gathered the Elements of Harmony, saved my beloved sister, and restored the world to balance time and time again. On that day where she met those five amazing friends, became the catalyst for a safe and bright future for us all!" "You can maintain that body without Starswirl's power constantly being drained to keep you that way. You would become a full Equestrian for the rest of your life. Would you like that?" "On that same day, they encountered a lost pony, whom arrived in Ponyville with neither friends nor protection. Time and time again, this lost soul willingly helped my former pupil and her friends overcome many obstacles, asking nothing in return and learning the values of friendship alongside them." "His original body is unaccustomed to the magical realm; it must be a negative reaction!" "Jack!" "Some may know him, most may have heard tales of this stallion's exploits. The pony who defied the likes of Queen Chrysalis, King Sombra, Lord Tirek. Even my own sister in effort to spare his loved ones the danger. It is time we fully acknowledge, and officially welcome this brave explorer to our world." "Jack's magic originally centered from the heart. Balance operates differently than regular magic, drawn from the emotions of the user rather than the horn of an Equestrian. My first deduction was that if we could direct the spell to whatever possible magic may now lay dormant in him, it would reawaken that power and assist us in changing Jack back to normal."  "Is this how you behaved before we first ever met? Because I'm starting to miss the more energetic non-human Stardust." "Keep your attention focused on what Father Pooper has to say children. His wisdom is a matter be to taken to heart." "Correct, my fellow Equestrians. The pony currently courting the Princess of Friendship; whom you might know as the Hero of Canterlot, Crystal Champion, and, to some, the Twilight Warrior, is not from around me. He traveled to Equestria from beyond the stars, and has done nothing but protect and aided us since that same day my young student and their friends have done the same." Their warnings to the founders - That of Commander Hurricane, Clover the Clever, Smart Cookie, Private Pansy, Chancellor Puddinghead and Princess Platinum - were left unheeded, for the founders have already declared a new age of peace, and wish it to be kept that way, fearful of the creatures lurking, waiting for the spirit of friendship they bestowed to weaken so the land would be taken into the cold yet again. Disgruntled, but not yet defeated, those whom predicted grave danger to the land gathered all their followers and, using ancient equine magic, rose over the heights of the heavens and constructed a new haven for all to be safe from the machinations of the land below. "Why do you insist on helping me?" "Do I need a reason?" "I don't think I can hate anyone, even those who wronged me..." "You're still you. The appearance outside never changes whom you are on the inside. And inside; you're still the same compassionate, knowledgeable, kind and thoughtful, brilliant, considerate, strong amazing Twilight Sparkle I've... Well, I think you know." "I think we may both agree that you were never truly deserving of any friends... Were you Jack?" "Two lonely pathetic people, brought together by their own doubts and sheer stubbornness to fight the inevitable. A match made in heaven, surely." "After all this is said and done, you'll go back home. You'll go home and be with the ponies who love you, you'll give up this crusade of tackling your own problems, and you'll be happy for the rest of your life with them." "Don't do this..." "I know I'd be happy to have them, and you, to call my friends..." Season Seven. First chapter: The Hand Balance Deals With Us. July 7th. 0:00AM. "Stardust... You're crying." "I'm just happy to have you all with me, my family... I love you all." (Cover by the talented Raven Rawne once again: https://mlpforums.com/profile/35911-raven-rawne/)
 

Episode 15 - Movie Trailers Today

Hey.  Y'know what really grinds my gears?  You notice how they never show movie trailers on tv anymore?  They used to show legit trailers back in the day, and it got me all excited for movies.  Now, the only way you see movies advertised on tv is when they pair it with some other product.  I know you know what I'm talkin' about.  They show an add for a f*ckin car or a fast food burger, and then show some movie character shoehorned into the ad, or maybe they show some idiot suburban family driving to the fast food joint when their car is attacked by aliens from the movie, and then they're all like, "Come to IHOP and try the new Grand Slam, and see Independence Day Resurgence today!", or "Buy or lease the all new Hyundai Elantra today, and see The Last Jedi, only in theaters!", or, "Ask your doctor about Cialis today, and see The Incredibles 2!" Celestia dammit!  I f*cking hate that sh*t.  Why does everything have to be sponsored and crammed full of products?!  I want to actually see a flipping trailer for the flipping movie.  Now, I realize that all the actual trailers are online now, and that's fine and all, but I still resent this whole situation.  It's a symptom of the larger problem we've created with this whole ad model world.  Nothing can stand on its own without product placement.  I remember when sports stadiums were actually named after teams, instead of being the Pepsi Center, or Coors Field, or the Staples Center, etc.  I remember when you'd watch the Olympics, and the sides of the figure skating rink or the gymnastics arena would be emblazoned with creative and attractive designs made specifically for those games.  Now what do you see plastered all over the rink?  AT&T, Almay, Neutrogena, S.C. Johnson a Family Company, Time Warner, Cover Girl, Pepsi, Coke, Domino's Pizza, Geico, Allstate, eSurance, H&R Block, Chevrolet, Honda, Dodge, T-Mobile, Verizon, Comcast, Spectrum, Cox, Taco Bell, Carl's Jr, Este Lauder, f*cking on and on and on and on.... I HATE IT.  And that, ponies, is what really grinds my gears.
 

[Poem] Wandering

The moon rises, I'm growing to fear it Darkness serving as a reminder that I haven't escaped this pit Wondering how the flame that once burned bright is now barely lit Silence fills the empty space around me, I grow tired and my mind wanders Wandering... full of questions and regret and pain Didn't even notice my tears that began to rain down Can't even fake a smile, at this point- it's a permanent frown How did this happen? I used to be a king with a crown Now I've fallen and the world's laughing like I'm a clown How did I get here? I was happy and hopeful But now I break down at the thought of being social I fucking had it all It hurts to watch myself fall The world surely does bring you to your knees You feel immobile when pushed, like you didn't even feel a breeze Wasn't always like this, but now I'm grown In a world where you're expected to work through it all alone Falling behind, I think my gas tank needs a refill Just like my bottle of pills to satiate the mind of another who's mentally ill Sometimes it's the only saving grace when everything seems to be going downhill I wish I was normal, to lead a stable life Because my own mind is backstabbing me, and I'm the one holding the knife So I could leave my house without feeling like the world is crumbling down on me And stop feeling isolated as if I'm lost at sea A prisoner of my own mind and I want to be free It comes back to the question, how did I become this? I miss being younger, before I fell into this abyss Suddenly, ringing fills my head, the thoughts turn to static and I'm pulled out of my mind as the worries become erratic The night is growing darker and my head is left pondering I can't sleep with all these thoughts in my mind, wandering.

BGP DevLog #177 (Sculpting a World)

It's finally happening! Converting the maps from graph paper notes and doodles into working sandboxes that I can actually roam around in the Unity engine! Every single map in Battle Gem Ponies is coming to life AS. 👏 WE.👏 SPEAK.👏

     Getting all the different tiles, placeholders, and animations setup took days longer than I expected, but I finally have the process down and can get to work! I'll be using mostly borrowed and temporary tile sprites to have a basic but functional version of the entire game world up and running. This is one of the Top 5 remaining extremely tedious tasks of the game's development I'll be glad to have off my back. (Read to the end to see the other 4.) 

      So I hope to emerge next week with another monumental task behind me. To see what hills have already been climbed in the last 7 days, why don't cha take a look on the official blog?
