About
Hi, my name is Matt, but you can call me doctor insidious, because that is much more awesome.
My top ten games:
10. SBCG4AP
9. Sam and Max
8. Gears 2
7. Tap Tap Revenge
6. We <3 Katamari
5. Castle Crashers
4. Persona 3
3. Braid
2. Crayon Physics
1. Cave Story

I am one of the few people who actually know how to program in this world. And by program I mean know how to use pointers.

#include <stdio.h>

#define COCKS 0

int main (int argc, char **argv)
{
printf("Hi I'm doctor insidious\n"
"This is the most useless program I have ever seen\n");
return COCKS;
}

Here is a wallet I painted on for my friend's birthday (My friend will announce his birthday tomorrow)....

Front is nothing special... but the other side:

Bam! Booyah!

I was going to do the p4 logo on the front but I messed up. Also the inside's a bit messy still...

but I will fix that in a little while. What do you think? I think im going to paint one for him every year!

One day in gym class, I told the eventful story of a man and another man at a hot dog stand in the city (fictional, I made it up). Per request of my friend, here is a comic version (my drawing sucks, I didn't want to get the tablet out). If you don't like it, blame him.
The image is a little big, so I suggest instead (in order to get the full story) clicking Here.
Second order of business, go on to facebook, go to the groups page, and search up eggnostic:
We are willing to accept that eggnog exists, we're just not totally convinced.
until next time... bye.

How many of you are reading this seething with anger just at the thought that somebody could think that the Nintendo DSi wasn't all that great. I mean, sure, all the new additions look pretty cool and well executed,but I continue to get the eerie feeling that Nintendo is moving away from being a video game company and more of a media company. For example, some of the new features include: Cameras (2), Image editing, wireless browser, bigger screen, download shop, music, music editing-thing, share you image, and NO MORE GBA SLOT (sure there downloadable games on the shop, but come on, minus points for being a dousche bag). Not many of those new features are related to games.

So now I introduce to you this: The GP2X Wiz:

Pretty nice, eh? What it is is an open-source hand held game console. some features are: Touch screen, SD card slot (for developers), Really-loud speakers, video, music, ebooks, calender, 3D card... never mind me, here's a list for youself:

Now your thinking: pish, that thing must have so few games, why would I ever want something with so few games??
Few COMMERCIAL games, yes, but the gp2x is not lacking in indie games and emulators, for example, CAVE STORY! YAY! My favorite game! As for emulation, here is a video of the Wiz emulating some games:

(Also let me note that since the SDK is free, games will flow in rather quickly)
So any way, GO PREORDER THIS THING: http://www.gp2xstore.com
The company that makes them is a Korean firm called Game Park Holdings. They will be at E3 for all of you interested.








After A couple of Days of hard labor, I have come up with a final draft of the male character in my game titled "d". If you don't know what I'm talking about, here are two prior blog posts: Dev Blog One, The Game's premise. Done? Good, now here here is the male character in phase one, Keep in mind I'm trying to make the characters as hip as possible so the kids can relate to them:

Pretty hip, huh? Here is the male character in phase two:

very hip indeed. Some time eventually, I will be showing off the game sprites & the female character design.
Contest of sorts: Write a story for "d" in the comments and get featured in the game!
That's right! In the game! Here are the rules:
-Must include 2 characters (male and female),
-The 2 characters need to have sex at one point (build up their relationship)
-The characters must have questions which they go to "The All Knowing Old Man" to answer,
- And you must include this phrase of dialogue to be spoken by an enemy: "MATURE? More like IMmature!

That is all for now. See you in some time eventually!

Im sorry to say but this will be a relatively short blog post, as I wanted to get this out as fast as possible. This is the first of many dev blogs relating to the video game I am making titled "d". For more information about the game and its premise, please click HERE. Enlightened? good. Now on to the game.

I wanted the characters to be as hip as possible. You can tell by their T Shirts that they are "Hip". Their shoes are vans, so they are therefor "Hip".
Game Mechanics:
The only way this game can be made, I feel, is as a top-down, Zelda style JRPG. The combat will be Final Fantasy style, but the bush-trimming combat will be Zelda style.

That's it for now. Bye. Please leave any thoughts or suggestions in the comments section.

It recently has accoured to me that there are a lot of movies and television shows based off games, many of
which are good, however, there are not many video games that have been made (Aside from retro capcom
knock offs) that are really good. There is no movie game that subjects the player to a deep thematic question
that was unquestioned in the origional film.

This is a problem

Which is where I come in. This should probably been stated in the title, but this blog is also a dev blog. I could
never make a spin off of a movie, the indie community would hate me (due to this game being one of
complete serousness and not a parody). So instead I am going to make a game based on a genre that only
movies have been able to explore the extreme intellectual, thematic, and questioning of.

Health/Puberty movies

I know you think it can't be done. Maybe you think that the player will not be able to comprehend such varied
emotions the main character goes through, maybe you think the game will not be as nerve racking and
psychologicaly miss-matching condensed into a 30 hour gameplay experience, maybe you have some other
reason, but whatever you think, I assure you I am up to the task. And even if the game does not make it up to
the mega monuments of achievements whish have been built by the films (most notably "Nightmare on
Puperty Street", which even has a theater adaption of the first), isn't it worth exploring? How are we to finally
see the day where children are encouraged regularly to go out and JPG? Friends, members of the vast Dtoid
community, this is our chance!

In the next dev blog I will be exploring the game mechanics of The Game. Please post any ideas you have for
a name in the comments section.
