  1. Wow, now I'm really feeling old! SSMB was my first main forum home. I had been around GameFAQs just a bit but this place is the one I went to most often. I was super active here for 4 years from ~2005-2009. Nice to drop in every now and then and see how people are doing. Other than random SegaSonic Radio moments with various DJs from the olden days, I think I'll always remember the elaborate April Fool's day pranks the most. Anyone remember Knuckles DS? 😆 Happy 20th TSS! Here's to many more.

      IPBoard went "social media style" a few years back. Post counts became way larger across the board to the point of not meaning much anymore as posts and status updates were merged as "content," the friends list on profiles was changed to followers, the 5 star member rating system is gone, along with other things I can't even remember, etc. It was alot to get used to at first.

      Does that mean we LITERALLY cannot be friends on this website? Those monsters!

      We're now a cult.

      Now we must sacrifice someone to the SANIC gods.

  7. It's hard to give you much concrete advice without knowing what types of traversal mechanics you plan to have. Can you walljump, double jump? Can you slide down a wall and input a wall jump later? Air dash? Do you have any idea what type of enemies you'll have? Different enemies can make the same level design very different to traverse. Since it's a metroidvania, will you be traversing these areas repeatedly throughout the game? Putting really challenging platforming sections in an area that players are expected to go through repeatedly should be avoided; put those in areas where you're hiding a specific progression upgrade or potentially as a leadup to a boss. Or otherwise somewhere a player only *needs* to go there once. How will your platforming sections build complexity over time so you can prepare players for more complicated sections as they progress through the game? I'm a professional game designer (though I don't do level design specifically), maybe these will help you think of something really awesome

      Thanks! It's been a while since I last saw you here, how've you been?

    2. Strong Bad

      Yes, it's been a while hasn't it? I've another internet home that I love very much, so I spend most of my time there. I'm glad I can simply drop in and say hi to a few people here and catch up every couple years, rather than being a bother. 

      To your question, I am doing very well, better than ever! Some bumps in the road no doubt since last we spoke, but what is a destination without a journey? Lots of personal growth all throughout, and still learning as I go. 

      How about yourself? How have you been? 

    3. Sean


      I've basically been spinning my wheels in San Diego after coming back from Korea a year ago, and not a lot has happened since. It's been a rough time not knowing what to do with myself.

      I'm really sorry to hear that. I hope you find something you have passion for soon!

      I hear good things about San Diego from some of my friends who live there. I'm over in Los Angeles, home to slightly worse Mexican food and more traffic.

      It's pretty okay here. Considering there's not a lot I can do while going to school and not having a job, the most excitement I've had the past few months was visiting my relatives nearby lol.

      I'm glad you've been able to visit your relatives! That's one thing that's been a bummer since moving to California, all of my family lives in the midwest... I only get to see them for the winter holidays haha. 

      What are you going to school for?

    7. Sean


      What are you up to in LA anyway? I can't remember the last time I've been there aside from coming back home via LAX.

      And I'm trying to do something related to computer science or programming. Haven't really fully committed to a major yet.

      I'm a professional video game developer, I work at one of the many studios in the Santa Monica/West LA area. It's an unannounced title, which is super exciting! Funny you mention LAX, I'm actually like ~4-5 miles from LAX haha. 

      Programming is awesome and very valuable. Do you enjoy it?

    9. Sean


      Wow that's really cool, had no idea you managed to get into the industry. Congrats! Can't wait to hear about what you're working on in the future.

      and I haven't really done much aside from random experimentation with stuff on my own lol. I'm still taking prerequisites so I haven't actually signed up for any programming classes yet. Not really sure where to begin in a school setting either.

      I'd say you should try to sign up for a programming 101 course if it's offered at your school. If it's not, you can take some free courses at Codecademy or similar to see if it's something you'd even enjoy. Most games use C# or C++ if you're interested in that specifically. 

    11. Sean


      Thanks, I'll look into those. I think my problem is that I've been hopping around different directions and majors over the years that I find it difficult to commit to something, and a lot of stuff I think I might want to try out seem way over my head.

    12. Strong Bad

      Those are all really reasonable feelings to have. It's hard to be sure about anything. 

      I always thought you were a pretty intelligent person, I think if you set your mind to something that you think you'd really enjoy, even if it may be challenging, you could push through and shine. 

    13. Sean


      Thanks man. Same to you, it's great to hear that you're making a name for yourself.

  10. I hope you are doing well!

  11. Happy birthday, TSS! Thanks for makin this thing a million years ago, @Dreadknux. Was one of my first forums back in the day, good times for sure.
