Ved 2010-09-17 15:10

Now taking suggestions for more arcade highscore announcements for the Shoutbox. I like the ones we have but more variety never hurt. Think of this as a mad libs experiment.

The following must be included in the one-liner: [name] [score] [game]. Name must come first, after that anything goes.

B L 2010-09-17 16:32

[name] just got popped [score] times in the pail by [game]. Ouch!

[name] peed for [score] minutes straight after a marathon session of [game].

[name] sent [score] tweets announcing a new high score at [game].

[name] just agreed to accept [score] dollars to get naked with [game].

JangoFett 2010-09-17 16:55

[name]'s lack of productivity just cost the economy $[score] by playing [game] instead of working.

b0rg9 2010-09-17 22:01

[name] is never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never gonna run around and let you score [score] on [game].

[name] has [score] facebook fans but no real-life fans because he's still living in his parents' basement playing [game].

[name] just drove off the road while texting and playing [game] on their smartphone. At least they still scored [score].

These have been added.

"Pepsi Football" balls are deflated, and it don't work even...it's the same game as "Finger Footy" any way though, and "Finger Footy" works just fine.

Gear Jammer 2010-09-20 20:17

I think "Rib Challenge" should be the lowest score wins, not the highest, it seems to be based on the time it takes to complete the course, thus the lowest time would be the best.

Ved 2010-09-20 20:39

Fixed both of these issues (removed Pepsi Football, changed Rib Challenge scoring to low).

The highscore champ (method) was stuck though, so I had to wipe scores on Rib Challenge. :sad: I laid down a new beatable score for someone to take over though.

Ooh also I'm starting to finally put games into categories. Yell at me if something belongs in a different category, once I get it out of "Unsorted".

b0rg9 2010-09-20 20:51

Ved, I'm looking forward to the "holiday" games back in if you still got 'em. That drunk santa one, for instance, was a hoot and fun to play!

Ved 2010-09-21 13:14

Yeah I found a few of the holiday games when I redid the arcade last month, but there are a few missing. I'll find 'em somewhere.

Hey b0rg9, are you and Jangofett stuck in the Fly Sui tournament? You're still tied; does it give you a link to play again to try and score higher than "1" in that game? If not, I could just hit the mysterious "Force winner to advance" link I have and see if it explodes. (Actually I think it will give the match to whoever got that one-point-game first)

B L 2010-09-21 13:49

[name] just crushed the previous record holder's dreams by scoring [score] at [game]. What a prick.

[name] just played [game] [score] times without a break. Can you say "obsession?"

[name] has found that at least [score] hours of enthusiastic masturbation is required to loosen up for [game].

[name] just heisted [score] jars of urine from the [game] room.

[name] has contributated [score] dollars to our [game] fund for expandation of vocabularitude.

JangoFett 2010-09-21 14:16

[name] has found [score] grammatical errors in [game].

The Fly Sui tourney isn't giving me an option to resolve the tie, so I guess you will have to force it.

Ved 2010-09-21 15:11

Okay between you and b0rg9 which one of you is more awesome?

Actually the most fair thing to do would probably be to use the real gamescores as the tiebreaker - whoever has a better score in the Arcade.

Or I could go with the tried and true "Reverse Alphabetical order".

Ved 2010-09-21 15:34

Actually the "Make the winner advance" link isn't tied to a specific person, just the match. I'm going to click it and see who the arcade chooses.

OK, it made b0rg9 advance, probably because he entered the tournament before Jango :sad2:

Edit: Also what is going on here AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

At least this tournament is working smoothly

Yeah, the bowling thing came unglued a little bit. I only did two games and got my ass eliminated. Better get some taint remover in there because that tournament is definitely tainted big time.

I'd prefer to see a round robin tournament with a championship game rather than the random seeding. Is that even possible?

Ved 2010-09-21 15:55

It's not an option but could be programmed in some day maybe

Ved 2010-09-21 16:06

Ok I fixed the bowling tournament. The problem was method's advancement double-posted so it filled him as both spots in the 2nd round (championship). Piece of shit code probably.

Anyway akaMonty's highest score was 116 it appears (I hope) and method scored higher in one of his 2nd round games, so I'm setting him as the winner.

b0rg9 2010-09-21 18:00

Hey Ved,

No it doesn't. I thought we'd just keep getting alternating extra single games given to us until the tie broke, but now it has stopped at "completed" for both of us.

Fwiw, I think Jango played before I did so he should get to advance. Good luck, Jango :freak:

EDIT: Or not

JangoFett 2010-09-21 18:25

Don't punish me by making me play Fly Sui again. I'll be good, I promise!

Gear Jammer 2010-09-21 18:27

Blast Billiards Gold :hail: method.

My cue has shriveled up and died.

Domestic Goddess 2010-09-21 20:01

[name] just saved [score] dollars by switching to Geico after playing [game]

b0rg9 2010-09-21 20:21

Finished it -- and ran up the score Florida Gators style...

[name] just filled up [score] pee bottles while playing [game].:bottle:

HAXXOR!!!

That was my tourney to win...

Ved 2010-09-22 16:53

The Arcade overhaul is complete.

- New header and navigation tabs, which are now present and consistent across every page of the entire site.
- Yellow
- Removed the "Ruler of the Arcade" and "Leader of the Leaderboard" boxes since the Ruler was redundant (it's shown at the top, complete with avatar), and I have no idea what Leader of the Leaderboard means.
- Yellow, and lots of it.
- All games are now in categories, and you can now once again view ALL games via "Unsorted". This is also the default view when you first enter the arcade.
- Did I mention yellow?

Watch for new games every now and then in the left column of the arcade homepage. I've got dozens of games that we haven't had before, but they shouldn't be rushed in too fast.

:nod: Like I said in the shoutbox last night, there was a fluke with my browser that put the game in slow-motion -- thereby changing that game completely. Involuntary Haxxor I guess!


Also, Ved, the upgrades to the Arcade are great! Sometimes, after a grueling game of whatever, I'm really wanting to say my :twocents: over the game experience or give a piece of my mind about whatever and to whomever that had/has the high score, etc.

Is there any easy way to make a little "smack talk" area like the shoutbox within the arcade area for some "arcade community"? It seems to me like it'd be a lot of fun and might inspire some tourneys and otherwise add a new facet to the arcade area.

Twiggy 2010-09-22 22:51

I like your idea, b0rg

B L 2010-09-23 0:44

Ima just put my smack here, bitches.

method 2010-09-27 19:09

"Midi Golf v2", despite being a golf game, should list high score as best (it automatically generates an 'arcade score' which is higher when you have a lower score in the actual golf game, if that makes sense)
