I still like the idea, but it’s ugly and has visibly unaliased lines. Sign textures tend to get scaled down in-game anyway, but I thought it could’ve been better so I decided to redo it for the assignment thing. Plus, doing little propaganda posters in the TF2 style is so fun
Here’s the intial poster I did, clean and PRE MODIFIED
see how much better that looks? and with EXTRA EMPHASIS ON BALD. The quote was supposed to be based off an email to Robin Walker that inspired the hatless items in the first place, and I got it incorrect the first time. So I fixed that
in any case here’s what it looks like with the wear and tear to fit into the game better
This is absolutely golden. They took some of the nonsense edits people have made to various pages on the site over the years and crammed them into a page. It’s worth reading.
Some notable ones:
"It is said that the pyro is in fact a female and the backscratcher is a rake where women usually attend their gardens and plants in their free time."
“The Engineer is the only class to mention a Combine in Team Fortress 2.”
"Heavy’s Belt Bullets may be Crayons."
"The name One Thousand and One Demoknights is a refence to the 300 battle because there were a thousand Persains fighting 300 Spartens."
"While most likely a coincidence, ‘Ullapool Caber’ bears certain verbal similarities to the Arabic phrase ‘Allahu Akbar’, also known as the Takbīr. A common Islamic Arabic phrase, literally translating as ‘God is Greater’, the phrase has, following the September 11 attacks, come to be associated with Islamic Extremism; in particular suicide bombing."
"Ze Goggles are the only hat with Ze instead of the. This is the reference to the German language."
"Miss Pauling’s Revolver looks much like that of the Spy’s Revolver or even Big Kill."
Yesterday I spent all day nailing out a Portal 2 map. Steam says I’ve spent 7.2 hours in the Portal 2 Authoring Tools, but I do not believe that at all. It was an all night dealie I tell you what. And as it turns out, Valve is hosting a mapping contest, so I’m tossing it in.
In any case, here it is! Extract the BSP file to C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\portal 2\portal2\maps, then when you start up Portal 2, punch “map sp_gottagofast.bsp” into the console and bam you’re in. (You don’t need the other two files in the ZIP, those are just requirements for the contest entry.)
Well hey there’s a cool new feature open with Pokemon Black and White where you put your Pokemon up on a website. You can also visit other people’s Pokemon in their houses! Welp let’s just stumble on into this guy’s h—
Furries aren’t the only thing you need to beware of on the Pokemon Dream World, however. There are SERIOUS PROS out to get you.
I felt belittled the moment I saw this guy. It was at this point I realized my life was a sham—I am but a Simisage UNDERSTUDY. The Dream World can really eat at your self-esteem with players like this. You can tell it’s gotten to a few Japanese players over time, too, as not many of their nicknames seemed positive to me.
