  1. The Blue egg is dropping in the Alpine Biome - the Green egg drops in all Biomes

    Right, but when? I know it's *supposed* to be on the hour, but I keep checking at the start and the alpine biome is always empty, I just sit clicking around to each biome. I'm wondering if the cave time is off or something.


  2. Toast, fried eggs, and bacon. Typical big Saturday morning breakfast with my family, although we usually do pancakes or waffles instead of toast.

     

    When my mom woke me up this morning to ask how many eggs I wanted, for some reason, still mostly asleep, I told her, "Three!". I remember saying it, I just have no idea why. I have never eaten three fried eggs for breakfast before. xd.png


  3. I'm O+. My sister always had thought she was A+ for some reason, but she was finally old enough to give blood this year, and learned to her surprise that she's actually O+ as well.


  4. 38.19188% - Major Geek

    Wooo! Not that bad!

    Most of my lack of geeky semblance was due to lack of opportunity, not lack of wanting! My parents have me on a really short leash, so...yeah. :'( Still, I have been a Web developer (amateur) before, and I am very geeky, so I guess...I had it coming! <3 geeks!

    ^ Same here pretty much. Mine was 39.11439% - Major Geek.

    Probably lost a bit because I've never really been into Star Wars or comic books, but being a computers double-major helped.


  5. I played the old Commodore computer and died a couple times in the games.

     

    - "Death Sword" (a fighting game): I was in the middle of a battle and had cookies in the oven when the timer went off. As there's no pause function, I decided to just pull the cookies out and then go back and finish the fight. Could probably have finished the fight even with the low health, but the computer cut off my fighter's head in the meantime. xP

     

    - "Slinky" (you play as a slinky and have to hop on all the squares to turn them to another color while avoiding enemies): Got thrown off the map by a magnet, accidentally jumped off on my own once, and then an enemy kept appearing at my respawn point so I got stuck in this endless loop of dying, respawning, and instantly dying again and just had to turn the darned game off.


  6. I've just started playing the mobile game Rage of Bahamut, and I discovered that I should not, in fact, evolve my cards instantly, but rather enhance them to the max level first. Evolving them to the final stage without doing any enhancing would give me only something like 36% of the potential attack/defense power that fully-enhanced cards would give - at the most. Wish I hadn't done my super-rare cards that way. :/


  7. So I posted earlier, about a page ago, how I bred a silver egg. I was wondering this evening when the last time I bred a silver egg was, and it turns out that it was exactly one year ago today - and the egg I bred a year ago is the one that laid the egg today.


  8. The video game for the movie Ice Age 2. (This was back before I knew that movie video games are usually poor; I liked the Harry Potter ones so I didn't know!)

    Due more to the insane difficulty than anything. The point of the game was to rescue all the animals in the area; the map was difficult to traverse and required special skills of the three main characters (Diego can make huge leaps, Manny can knock down trees to create bridges, Sid can climb ladders and can create fire. This wouldn't be so bad if you could switch characters at will, but nope, you had to find these special panels on the ground to switch. And then it was timed as well, way too short a time limit. I think I got 3/4 the way through before I finally gave up. It's one of the few games I never finished.

     

     

    Oh, and the DS version of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon. It's extremely watered down from the Wii version - is just a side-scrolling thing rather than the move-around-everywhere from the first two DS games, doesn't quite follow the same storyline as the Wii version (and takes quotes out of context), and doesn't allow you to fly at will (well, there are flying levels that basically work like on-the-rails shooters, but still.) My first playthrough took me 4 hours. During speed runs I can beat the game in about 50 minutes.


  9. On Skyrim, my character got caught in a Wall of Ice that this Falmer Shaman had cast, so I couldn't move out of the way or turn or raise a weapon/spell fast enough. Between the ice and the darned Falmer swinging at me with a sword, my health depleted very rapidly - it was a waste to use potions because it would be gone again right away.


  10. ... I'm just... Mad. They're THIS hopeless. ANYONE would be willing to give money to them to help keep Wolfquest up! And now they're officially stating that it's over. How can they give up so easily? I'm blowing my head off. >:I

    They didn't give up easily. Like StarSea said, it costs a lot. The original grant from the National Science foundation was $508,253. With that AND money from the merchandise store AND plain old donations from regular people like us AND bigger donations from things such as the Best Buy Children's Foundation, they were at least able to make what they did. They were able to fund the game itself, pay the programmers and artists and composer and whatnot, they had an admin/coordinator paid position, kept the website and servers running, etc. for five and a half years. It's lasted longer than they'd expected, and it reached far more people than they'd ever hoped. Unfortunately, as the entire thing is run on donations, and isn't all that cheap, it was inevitable that this was going to happen eventually, but at least it had an amazing run while it lasted.

    I feel especially sad for Cana, the coordinator, who is losing the job she's had for the last couple years. I had posted a goodbye message on the thread where she announced the whole thing, remembering some good memories, and she sent me a personal private message back; it was really nice.

    I've seen sites close before, and even though I wasn't one of the people that posted every day, I was pretty involved what with being a beta tester and all, and this site/game coming to its close is the one that's hit me hardest so far, I think. sad.gif
