Title: No way
Post by: Hoffenlarft on July 26, 2010, 10:34:11 PM
This has to be the most dissapointing fan game ever.  After seeing all those beautiful 2D sketches I thought I was in for a treat, but this??? All you have to do is pick 3 things, talk to 2 characters and that's it. I have to say this is just laim.

What you played was less than 20% of the actual game. And the project has been 3D for many years now.

The team put in countless hours of unpaid work on TSL for us, the fans. Seriously, show some respect.

I'll step up and say that you've actually played significantly less than 10% of the entire game.

And I recommend keeping the feedback mature, we're more than happy to take it when it's presented on an adult level.  And it also saves me from having to clean up after you.

Seriously, have you not read the rest of the forums regarding the length of epidsode 1 and why it is shorter than what's to come? Did you think you were done?

Just wait. And the screenshots from today for upcoming were great. I've never looked forward to a game so much as this.

You can't assume that everyone reads the threads on the forums, even though there is a sticky for it. There are always people that just can't be bothered.

I do wonder what wilco edited out of the opening post  ;)

I do wish people would realize they should look around on a forum before posting to it. Chances are their question has been asked & answered, in most cases.

Yes bunches of it, it had just been a really odd day already and I wasn't in the mood to even consider leaving it in the heavily censored state it was in.

True that it would be nice if people would at least read the basic information in sticky threads, especially if they're going to go off on a rant like that, but sometimes it just doesn't happen.  What we do rightfully expect is that people act at least semi-maturely around here.

I was a little too at first, then I realised - This is just the tutorial level.

And all of a sudden, it looks maginificent, and I can't wait for more.

At least our "tutorial" doesn't last 10 hours... *Glances at his copy of Final Fantasy XIII*  It is a bit of just getting your feet wet so to speak, but be prepared for us to go around throwing everyone fully into the pool in the next episode.

Whoa whoa whoa.  Where did this "us" stuff come from?  Weren't you just a die hard suck up defender when this came out?  Is that all it takes for mod status around here?  I'd drop the "us" and say "the designers" or something else.

Nope.  He is mature and kind, plus he knows his technical shiz.  The Powers That Be felt that he was knowledgable enough to be a mod, so that's how it worked.
Title: Re: No way
Post by: KatieHal on July 27, 2010, 07:20:48 PM
As they said. Almost immediately after the release, Weldon jumped in to help out with tech support--unasked even! We made him a mod so that would be easier, and he's quickly shown to indeed be mature, polite, fast-acting and overall quite helpful indeed. He was recently promoted to QA Lead. :)

Holy crap I'm totally blushing all over the place.  Stop already.  :P

And I am also a die hard suck up defender too, before I was a mod or QA Lead I thought was just about the coolest concept ever, and I still do.  A free project of this scope is pretty impressive, and I've just been happy to help out and pitch in my talents in any way possible.

Wilco has also been taking care of The Silver Lining board on GameFAQs. Quite a few interesting discussions over there.

Do your talents include being a professional pizza order guy for the team?  If so, I'd like to take that job off your hands.

Job Description:

1. Order Pizza for Team
2. Order Pizza for Self
3. Get early releases of TSL episodes at same time as team

Like that guy in "Gone in 60 seconds" said, we gotta eat and SOMEONE has to order the pizzas.   ;D ;D ;D
Title: Re: No way

lol, and with online ordering, you can order from a distance these days!
Title: Re: No way
Post by: KatieHal on July 28, 2010, 05:43:31 AM
If I get a pizza delivered from Weldon at my house, I'll double his salary. Just sayin'. ;D

I'm certain the pleasure of your company and
friendship would be payment enough, Katie.  :D

Weldon's a really nice guy, for the brief moment I've
had the chance to talk with him.  Very professional
as well.

ohh Tolin! that is really cheesy indeed!  ;)

I heard Katie eats babies for breakfast *shivers*
Title: Re: No way
Post by: KatieHal on July 28, 2010, 07:33:29 AM
Noo! Not cute adorable mini-humans!

I'm actually quite excited about babies because I'm going to be an aunt in February!!  ;D
Title: Re: No way
Post by: wilco64256 on July 28, 2010, 08:57:25 AM
Double-pay?  Nice!  I was thinking of asking for a 10% raise, but double works too I suppose.
Title: Re: No way
Post by: waltzdancing on July 28, 2010, 09:27:43 AM
Wilco is totally great! It's also cool to have someone working in the same time zone with me, requires less thinking. He has helped out a bunch and is doing awesome work getting Episode 2 ready for release. You are doing great work!

Katie is also one of the nicest people I have met, she doesn't eat babies for breakfast, she's to sweet for that. Congrats on becoming an Aunt!

Aww, shucks. :blush: Thanks Adrienne! And you have also been great to have working with us (as well as fun to meet!)--we'll be missing you next week!

I lol'd here.  I actually find it hilarious how this topic turned from a really inappropriately worded complaint to a compliment topic.  For the record, I'm loving working with this group of people - one of the best teams I've ever been on.

"Awww, you beat me to it."
