Re: Negative Events and Occurrences 3.0

The number of fillings I have tripled last Friday.

Although I got my own back on the dentist by getting water everywhere when I tried to rinse my mouth out! :P

Re: Worms Clan Wars

Such as? I don't believe you can reasonably deduce the underlying mechanics that govern a game from a few videos. In particular, I don't believe it's reasonable to assume disjoint rules for governing the behaviour of objects at this stage.* You've assumed strong similarities between the model W:A u...

Re: Worms Clan Wars

My immediate criticism isn't so much the background clutter, but that it doesn't immediately differentiate itself from the foreground; it's non-trivial to separate terrain and background. Actually, scratch that. In some instance it's downright difficult if you don't already know what a typical worm...

I have one crying to the Tetris theme.
Not sure how I'll get two to work. Need to hook up another 4-pin to my PSU first.

Re: Worms Clan Wars

I've not played a Worms game since Reloaded...
I think that was my last T17 beta as well (it was after Alien Breed right?).

So erm... I have no idea what this class thing is. You say another Worms game already uses it? How does that play out?
And is the Ninja Rope still going to be a pile of shite?
