  1. Do you know who Ellsberg is without having to look him up? Please let me know, I'm checking to see how well-known this historical figure is before referencing him in a script

      It appears Daniel Ellsberg isn't as well-known as I thought. I'll probably reference Snowden instead. Thanks everyone!

      It could also be because we're not smart.

  2. Congrats on turning 2, d4mo! Thanks for buying me CS:GO all those years ago

      What a pal, giving it to you before he was even out of his mom's womb!

      Yet somehow he was still older then your average teammate on voicechat

      Age is a social construct anyways

    Doodles on my mediocre drawing tablet

    Your animations are looking so great TOGE! It’s amazing to look back at your earliest posts in the thread and see how much improvement you’ve made in a mere two years. Just think where you’ll be another two years from now!
  4. I had to generate a 16-team tournament for a business eSports class, and I named all the teams after SPUFers! https://challonge.com/2h6nvw58 (Don't blame me for how you placed, blame my nickel.)

      I'm disappointed in myself for doing so poorly. It's probably because you cured my AIDS.

      Some of those names make me nostalgic for bigSPUF.

      It still screws with my mind how aabicus is actually the medic and the medic is actually some sort of dragon lizard.

      The outfit turned out so great! I finally got to bring Archimedes with me to a social event :D

    Happy Jump Day!

    Happy Mersopolis-version Jump Day! (Medic, let me know if you want a TF2 key, since you were the first person to remind me of Jump Day)
  7. Looking for advice on the 1-minute trailer I made for my current game project (link included). Can you understand the gameplay even if you've never seen the game before?

      @Tails Thee Fox Good call! We swapped one scene out for a third-person shot to show what the game looks like while playing. :D (It's the scene at 0:24)

      Does it make sense if I suggest you need shorter clips? Each clip feels a little bit too long, giving one too much information rather than making them want more?

    4. aabicus


      Yeah, I can believe it. I used a premade song so the clips are synced to the rise and fall of the beat. Only afterwards did our sound guy tell me he wants to try making custom music for our trailers, so going forward we can make it faster and at whatever pace we want

  8. That’s crazy considering how many articles you’ve written! I thought you’d been here longer than that tbh

    Barely Useful Superpowers

    This seems a decent time to shamelessly plug my downloadable card game The Just Us League, which is all about saving the world by coming up with uses for seemingly useless superpowers
  14. Today's SPUF of Legend is about Why Overwatch Contenders is better than Overwatch League!
  15. This week's SPUF of Legend, SCRUBG, chronicles the highlights from my first three games of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds! Also new articles from Medic!

  18. Post if you want me to name a Pokemon after you, offer available while supplies last

  19. I'm disappointed Medical Necessity was cancelled, but I can't say I was too surprised either. For my first attempt at being a creative director, I made a number of mistakes that was affecting the development of the project. I have a post on my private blog that goes into more detail about Medical Necessity and why it failed, but in a nutshell I spent most of my time on the marketing aspect and not enough time leading the team. It's part of the reason I quickly accepted a fulltime marketing position for Major League Magic, since it turns out marketing was my favorite part of developing Medical Necessity, and the role I did best. But I gained a lot of valuable experience from Medical Necessity, and it was a good life lesson overall. In other news, two more announcements for the SPUF of Legend! First, we hit 100 subscribers, which qualified us for a custom URL! https://www.youtube.com/c/TheSPUFOfLegend (turns out you don't get to choose that custom URL, YouTube just gives you one with your channel name, but it's still better than the cavalcade of random numbers and letters you get by default). Our latest video is a presentation I gave on Procedural Generated Content in Left 4 Dead 2, which the L4D2 subreddit liked so much they stickied it :D
  20. https://strawpoll.com/zy6cd6a1 Would appreciate any opinions! My team is trying to name our game

    1. TheOnlyGuyEver


      "Magic Fight"

    2. aabicus


      My personal suggestion was Brawlosseum, but the team didn’t go for it :P


      But I also suggested we go for an Osmosis Jones-style setting and call it Fightochondria so I don’t think they trust my suggestions anymore
