All About dog64
Hi all, I've been playing around with the new simple editor in Portal 2 and have been having fun making test chambers. So far, I've made three and I'm happy with the way they turned out. They may not be the most advanced, but I'm very impressed with the puzzles I can think up. I'll briefly describe each one:
Triplet - This was the first one I made, and it's the most simple. Most will probably get through it in a few minutes, but it was a nice way to get used to the tools and interface.
Cyber Climb - This chamber is the most complex, in my opinion. This chamber also required the most tweaks and testing, making it clock in at about four to five hours to make. It's also the largest file size at 10 MB. But I'm happy with the mechanics I used here, including a simple but fun basketball-like puzzle.
Cyber Labs - This chamber I just finished today. Sticking with the Cyber name, this chamber includes the use of gel. Some may not like that this chamber requires a bit of back tracking, but I tried to make what would otherwise be a simple and quick solution a little harder. This one took about three hours to make.
If you play any of these chambers, feel free to leave comments, suggestions, or things that need fixing. As fpr the editor, I'm very happy with how easy it is to use. I wish you could add more things with it like new doors or energy balls, but maybe that'll come later. I'll definitely be using it again.
I tell ya, the past few days I've been gaming hard like I haven't gamed in a long time. I bought the game of the year edition of Borderlands from Steam back in October during their Halloween sale (It was only $7!) and I played it for a few hours that day and then stopped. Now, four months later, I get the desire to play it again and now I'm really diggin it. According to Steam, I've played the game for nine and a half hours since monday. There are so many quests and guns to collect that you can easily spend a couple of hours playing and still feel like you've just started. I was skeptical when purchasing this game but I'm so glad I did.
I also snagged Modern Warfare 2 from Amazon for only five bucks. I've never seen it that cheap, not even on Steam, so I got it and activated it on Steam. I just finished the campaign today after exactly 7 hours of gameplay time, and what an ending it was. Now I kinda want to play MW3, but I'll wait until it's 5 bucks :p
So, lately I've been pushing my PC pretty hard. My first-gen quad core and GTX 460 can't run the games at a smooth 60fps, but I don't think it ever dips below 30fps on high settings, which isn't bad for a four-year-old processor and two-year-old graphics card. Next, I plan to get back into Bioshock.
After being my user icon for a few years, Scrooge McDuck has accepted his pink slip. He will resume watching over his nephews (who should be like 30 years old now but I digress) and attending to his money bin. I also hear Launchpad has invited him over to play Big Rigs, cause he's really good at it.
So, I'd like to introduce you to my new parter, Chip. He's a Resuce Ranger and says he'll help me with my Ranger duties, when he's not eating his nuts that is. Welcome aboard!
