Half-Life Alyx Stream 2!

I played again back on the 4th on and the game was a bit frustrating this time but still fun. Have a look!

Half-Life Alyx Stream 1

I played Half Life Alyx on my stream at last night! It’s super fun! The controls are tight and this really is a great experience so far!

Tenk Werz

I’ve been working hard over the past month, using NaNoWriMo combined with a Trello board as a goal tracking mechanism. The goal? I made a game, of course!

Tenk Werz is a 3/4 perspective artillery game. The goal of this exercise was to re-create one of the originals. Tank Wars for DOS.

I started vlogging around the same time as I started this project, so my vlogs were mostly about the process of developing Tenk Werz and what I did to keep myself going.

All in all it’s been fun, and I hope you give the game a try on!

Left 4 Punk’d 2

This troll Bluto and his buddy came on to my expert game just to boot everyone off it seems.

Dear Valve,

I have a huge problem with one of the server mechanics of this game. Every time I go online to play for the expert achievements it seems like some troll is out to screw us over.

The worst kind seems to be a new technique. Log onto a server that others have been playing since the beginning, almost at the end of the game. Get a friend to log on too and vote-kick all of the players off.

Since you’ve been vote-kicked off, you can’t report the user for abuse. But you still have been taken advantage of.

I just wasted the past hour trying to get through a campaign only for someone to pull this prank on me.

Someone named Bluto on server 7:30PM EST Monday April 8th, 2013.

Please fix this part of the game so that only users who have been playing since the beginning have vote-kick privileges. New players have to play through a level to get vote-kick privileges. That seems fair to me and it would mitigate this problem
