      So once again it is that time for me to post at a weird random time when i have been inactive for some time. I still troll around here but not on a regular basis. I kinda miss the old days of the forums but as i have seen the biggest day here is the community which seems very intact. Wish i could have been at RTX to meet the guys and gals again. But that was not possible this year because I found a very great gal to which i am marrying this year and weddings are not cheap. I am very luck because she is much into the same things as me. Such as RvB as one of many things. one day i want to meet up with some of my closest friends again.

      So once again it is that time of year. i have got a year older. so what does a 23 year old do on his birthday. He goes to school and the work and then to his room and listens to the Protomen Act II. wow what a great birthday. not really. I tired to have a party over the last weekend but all my friends are kinda week and only a few showed. But it was filled with much great food and large sum of beer..

      well just a small update. Back to the protomen.

      So the new red vs blue series is showing some promise but we need to see more to give a true jugdement of it. But i did find a new machinima series that is very well made. It is called The Leet World. The videos are all free and of really high quality. Give them a chance and check it out.

      myheadhurts

      So after playing left 4 dead all weekend after one hell of a house party i have come to the conclusion that it has now become a perfect comp. game with the addition of the surival mode. Which is great. Tell me the idea of using that mode in competition is not a bad idea. I think it is great. And that is all for now.

    • The stages of a gamer

      10 years ago

      myheadhurts

      So a friend posted this on facebook and i thought it would be cool to post up here.

      Stage 1 -

      - The Beginner -

      At this stage the gamer is learning the ropes and rules of the game. Strategies at this point are simplistic and revolve around the most basic aspects of the game (See a Fighter for D&D, New York Giants in Tekmo Superbowl, etc.). At this point the player will play with anyone and is elated with even a false win, since they will lose majority of the time. After all it's all about learning the game.

      This stage is the shortest as the player through experience will begin to move to stage 2 quickly.

      Stage 2 - (2 varieties)

      - The Wannabe -

      At this stage the gamer has learned all the basics of the game and has started to move into advanced tactics of the game. The player will earnestly try to win, and will triumph some of those times. The player still does not have an understanding of the purest principles of the game, but knows enough to put on a solid tactical advantage against those of stage 1.

      Competition becomes about proving yourself, and losses are taken a little more seriously. The urge to prove oneself is undeniable at this stage. However when playing against a stage 3, it will take luck to win.


      - The Know-it-All -

      This type of gamer has been playing a week, and thinks they understand all the tactics associated with every aspect of the game. No coaching from anyone will be processed. Instead their steadfast ways they've learned from stage one will be their final tactics. They will get irate when someone varies from their perceived function within the game (GoW= Hey why didn't you guys revive me when I was on the other side of the map grabbing a grenade in the middle of a wave?... etc).

      This stage sadly describes the majority of gamers everywhere. They've become set in their ways and will stay there no matter what happens around them.


      Stage 3 - (3 varieties)

      Once stage 3 is reached the gamers' true personality comes forth. So whether the person be a douche at heart, a fun loving person or some variation fully comes into play.

      - The Winner -

      This player has learned how to play the game, and which tactics go towards winning. The end goal of any game is to disseminate the competition, and achieve the most complete victory imaginable. These player are regularly seen obsessing on ladder servers and tournaments... always with the intention of winning. Any loss is taken as a personal insult to their ability to play the game and will get defensive against anyone beating them (play it down as luck, poor draw/weapon/lag, etc).

      This type of player will obsess of finding the latest killer strategy and be the first to implement it within a game setting. For them, if they don't win it's not a game.

      These players utilizing the most ruthless tactics gain notoriety as being such a person, and will in the end only find players as themselves to play against. After all, someone gloating on fragging a person of less skill doesn't gain many friends.


      - The Frustrated -

      This player never gained insight on the inner workings of the game. They have stuck with what has worked for them in the past and are hard to try anything new. These players are accustomed to losing and usually end up not staying with the game, instead opting for a game where their ingenuity will not be called into question. the tactics used fared well against opponents of lesser skill, but they somehow didn't continue learning.

      Most of the time, these players are rare... as they continually switch games until they find one they are good at. Then they usually fall into the Winner category, after losing for so long.


      - The Contented -

      This is the rare gamer in it only for the fun and experience of the game. Of all the types this type of gamer is the best for any (minus the Winner) to play against. As at this point, the Contented has learned most if not all strategies associated with the game. They are usually very proficient in it as well, and if they chose could give the Winner a run for their money.

      However, instead of winning being the goal, having fun with the game has become their primary objective. They will experiment with weaker, tedious and ridiculous tactics that may have little to no chance of winning, just because they seem interesting. They do not mind losing, and will gladly point out the mistakes a newbie is making... even if it costs them the win.


      I may have left out some of the various shades between the stages and paths of the gamer... but I think this pretty much sums up how gamers of any game progress. However remember that not all gamers progress to stage 3, many stay at stage 2 for their entire lives... and you can tell by talking with someone for a few minutes what type of gamer they are... and everyone is a gamer, although your game might be drastically different than any that I have posted here.

      So i just got my copy of Nerdcore Rising. If you don't know what nerdcore is it is really called nerdcore hip hop and that is what it is. Hip Hop that is nerdy. The movie follows the first tour of Mc Frontalot who essentially created the genre and it is awesome. that is all i need to say about it. It is great and cool cause it is nerdy.

      myheadhurts

      so i was looking at the gdc 2009 info and this came up. So if you have not heard what onlive is yet it is a service that lets you play new games and such streamed from the internet. The better the bandwidth you got the better the game resolution. All though i see the merits in a service like this there are to many problems that i see with this. the best info for this comes from our good friend Tim of ctrl-alt-delete. in the following link is is his view on it and i share all the same concerns he does .
