Topic: Kongregate / List Of All Zombie Games

No, I don’t actually have a list yet. But it’s Halloween and since zombies dwarf all other movie monsters, I thought it might be fun to put together a list of all zombie games.

Obviously there are the misleadingly named Decision and Decision 2, and it’s hard to forget Rebuild and Rebuild 2. Personally I’d say the Sonny games barely count, since being a zombie hardly impacts the plot or gameplay at all (Sonny could’ve just as easily been a vampire or an alien or whatever, there was no trace of any reference to horde behavior or infection). I also remember Zombies Took My Daughter. And there’s the Boxhead games, from before zombies were cool. Plus there’s the Last Stand games. Also, of course, Infectonator and its sequel, which flip things around.

I’m sure I’m missing at least a few. Anyone else remember any other zombie games?

People who misspell words still visit the site, look at ads, and provide revenue for Kong. People who don’t log in do not.

Topic: Kongregate / Nerdook Games

Nerdook games are fun. If you don’t like them, chill for you, but personally I love a lot of his games, even though I don’t really keep track of who makes what games (I actually had to look him up to see what games he’d made besides Cluesweeper and the new Kong one). It’s already been mentioned that Cluesweeper was great, so was Zombies Took My Daughter, Guy Of My Dreams was…An interesting change of pace, I guess, Vertical Drop Heroes was pretty good, Dungeon Developer and Orbital Onslaught are both in genres that the Flash platform is positively starved for, I Am An Insane Rogue AI was a lot of fun, Cat God and Sun King and Ninja Hamsters vs Robots both dragged on towards the finish but were still generally pretty good. Out of all the ones I’ve actually played, Guy Of My Dreams is the only one I’d be willing to give a 2. The rest are all easily in the 3-4 region, occasionally peeking out to a 5.

I’ve Halloween-ified my avatar, but Kong’s auto-crop went a bit wonky. The head got cut off.

Come up with a better argument before submitting the forums to your whining.

And you shouldnt criticize since you werent here when the changes were made mr signed in jan 2011. You are failing at your own debating points

What do you mean he wasn’t here? He’s been here way longer than you expect. It’s just that he’s on an alt.

Even if he wasn’t, his point is that the OP hasn’t been around as long as his rant implies, and it doesn’t actually make any difference whether or not Cammy’s been around for however long so long as he’s right.

Nice hipster rant, but you should see if you can work the word “sheeple” in somewhere.

Topic: Kongregate / Taken Gamertags

The distinction between a Kong account and a patent is that a patent is owned by the person who registers it and the account is owned by Kong. It’s spelled out in the terms of service that Kong can delete an account for any reason they want. It’s spelled out in the law that you get to keep your patent for as long as is legally allowed no matter what you do, even if you violate the laws. So no, the two aren’t really comparable.

The Senatry picture is sexist because it depicts women as speaking in stilted, poorly written dialogue.

I am not. How many girls are actually on here right now on this forum, none, because they would be commenting here if there was.

Read the post again, and when you figure out what I was actually saying feel free to write a response to it. Context is your friend.

Topic: Kongregate / sexism

Watching the OP trying to be a moral paragon while arguing for an incredibly selfish and petty position is amusing and all, but it ignores a basic pragmatic issue: How exactly do you plan to enforce this policy? Completely banning any game that makes use of art you disapprove of? Even ignoring the fact that this would slaughter Kong’s pageviews the instant a good game that also happened to have some big breasts in it came out on another site, how do you plan to determine what counts as sexist? You? What gives you the right to speak for all women? And why should games that hurt your feelings, personally, be banned when you could just stop playing them? Do you really think that the premier platform for fighting sexism in society is a freakin’ flash portal?

Whether or not the intent behind the complaint is moot, because the proposed action is absurd regardless of the complaint’s legitimacy or lack thereof.

Topic: Kongregate / So, what do you guys think about the new Kongregate layout?

Originally posted by Gomo_Psivarh:

The points progress bar in “my profile” should be (current pts – pts needed for current lv)/(pts needed for next lv – pts needed for current lv) instead of current pts / pts needed for next lv

For example if level X need 18000 pts in total and next lv need 20000 pts , you have 19000 points, the progress should be 1000/2000 = 50%, not 19000/20000 = 95%

Seconded.

Topic: Kongregate / So, what do you guys think about the new Kongregate layout?

Generally speaking, I think the new layout is a huge step up from the old one. Pragmatically there’s less clutter at the top, and it also looks more streamlined. One thing, though, is that I currently have the version that doesn’t show my avatar next to the My Profile button. I’d like that version, since having an icon I’ve chosen myself in the top right corner of the page reinforces that I’m logged into a personal account. Makes me feel all special.

Huh. That’s odd. These are usually pretty popular. I think maybe this is a sign I should stop trying to make games on these forums.

And I’ll go ahead and take my first turn now. Remember you can only move once every 24 hours, you heal one for 5 points and hurt another for 10 points. Check the person above to make sure they haven’t made any mistakes.

My last two games haven’t gone so well, for various reasons. Regardless, I’m going with something less experimental this time. If you don’t know how to play Hurt and Heal games, it’s pretty simple: Every twenty-four hours you can hurt one option for ten points and heal another by five. Once one of the contenders hits zero points, they’re eliminated from the game. Last one standing wins!

Some of the people mentioned in the mob that took out Chuck Norris were cut because not many people know who they are and the list was gigantic. Some of these aren’t mentioned in the lyrics but can be seen in the video during the second chorus. The original can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WgT9gy4zQA

Topic: Kongregate / I Can Haz Kong Stats?

I’m almost level 32 on Kong and, in fact, there’s decent odds I’ll be there by the time you read this. Of course, thanks to cheaters and such, Kong level must always be worth nothing but bragging rights. But how much bragging rights would being level 32 actually grant me? What percentage of users are level 32 or above? Is there any way someone better at coding than me could whip up a script that can find out, if we don’t already have a way of knowing?

I am very rapidly coming around to the opinion that you are too confrontational a person for me to have any fun running a game with. For? I dunno. I lost track of that sentence’s grammar about halfway through.

1. The update is still trivial.
2. I know how my own voting system works, actually. That was just the implication I got from his posts.
3. No, TVTropes is not safe for work. No one ever gets anything done within three hours of being linked to TVTropes.

You can’t actually determine that on your own. The character’s actions are determined by the audience at large, not just the creator. Giving him a lethal weapon as a power does kind of limit options towards traditional heroism, though. I’ve decided the update to EN’s profile isn’t a huge difference as to whether people will vote for him, so I’m not going to bother updating it unless he wins. By the look of things, Adeeb prefers EN even to his own hero, so we’ll probably go with him, and I’ll post the updated profile if we do. I’ll leave it open for another few hours though.

Also, seriously, you’ve got to put some kind of warning or disclaimer of something before linking to TVTropes.

Actually, that gives me an idea.

I’m resetting all the votes to zero and you cannot vote for your own hero.
