I’m getting sick of arguments like this. Not on the subject of kongpanions, but just in general. If you want to make an argument, don’t say “why don’t you just make your own game?”

It is an argument.

I never said it wasn’t.

And yes, the point that kongpanions are disappointing has already been established enough.

I like how the Kongpanion hunters are now breaking the site each week with our F5 spamming at update, lol.

I still wonder why people care about so much about getting a lower number for a useless kongpanion.

People are weird.

Yes, yes they are.

I gave it a 5 out of 5 based off of the physics game play. The original Red Remover is one of my favorite physics games. But honestly, Red Remover Blast? I don’t know what the Game Homepage was thinking on that one. Red Remover Blast is the worst of the Red Remover series. The player pack games are pretty good though.

What’s the point? There are really no unique ones made.

They all are unique seeing how there is now way you can get them after their week has been up.

That doesn’t make them unique.

Exactly.

Watch it here:

A topic I think should be discussed on an episode would be how the Hot New Games List seems to just be more Mmos and idle games rather then games that would seem to deserve the spot light. I know some people like those genres but they just aren’t my cup of tea.

I agree that that should be a topic addressed next time too. There have also been issues where MMOs are released, and then months later, they show up on the hot new games list. I would also like to know why we need Staff picks and a Notable Games section. I thought Candyman told me that notable games were chosen by Kongregate employees, so wouldn’t that make it a second staff pick section (which seems redundant, which is why a I think a further explanation is needed)? But I would agree that the most important topic suggested so far would be the Hot New Games list.

Actually he was dressed up as John. A really good John costume to. Clearly a store-bought costume, but incredibly realistic. The shirt he had was a kiwi anatomy shirt, that had nothing to do with Ninja Kiwi (I really like the shirt though).

Ya but maybe there is a guy at ninja kiwi named John and that same person would wear a shirt just like that.

Hmm…he never did specify which John he was dressing as. I see how your idea could be likely.

At this point, Kongpanions are for collecting, showing off, and carving into pumpkins. They aren’t going to show up in many more games, if any.

Well, at least make us able to collect them when we want, like badges. I missed the first 6 Kongpanions, some people missed a lot more, some missed only one, etc. Collectibles should at least return. Or maybe allow us a non-shiny past Kongpanion if we get all 7 badges in one week.

This idea is being suggest all the time, and it is a good idea, since kongpanions are and have always been for collecting. They are not really suited for games, if you couldn’t tell already, aren’t considered sidekicks, and just wouldn’t fit in most games (like kongpanions in Run 3).

Originally posted by player_03:

Proving that Kongpanions and online flash games just don’t fit:

If it wasn’t obvious enough, obviously the idea that kongpanions could be sidekicks was just an April Fool’s joke, just like the Kongbot Gameplay Service and Kong Plus (okay, sadly kong plus wasn’t an April Fool’s joke, but one of the first posts in the thread asked if it was, which I found humorous). So, as player_03 said, enjoy kongpanions for what they are, collectibles that can’t all be collected if you are a new player or a person who missed the original update.

I wonder why…

It can’t exactly increase, can it?

No it can’t. New members can’t get all of them, and neither can people who missed the beginning of the kongpanion feature. That wasn’t entirely what I was suggesting though. I was suggesting that less people are getting all " shiny kongpanions" because there isn’t much fun in collecting them anymore (…not much of a sidekick really, but extra lag in games is always helpful), and there is no point to them in the first place (unless of course you are obsessed with collecting them, then maybe you do find fun in collecting them, but the feature probably won’t last much longer). Maybe a few more developers will make games based around kongpanions, but the probability of a developer integrating them in a game is probably pretty low.

I think Reincarnation: Riley’s Out Again gets 4 stars. I like point-and-click games of that style, though I don’t like all the Riley games. Some Riley games the developer clearly didn’t put a lot of time or effort into (the LEET one takes less then four clicks).

I’d say 3 out of 5 for today’s game of the day. Honestly, I don’t like side-scrolling games (StrikeForce Kitty is an awful game on so many levels), but 300 miles to Pigsland is much better than most games of this type.

How?

Before K plus, when you achieved a certain level, you unlocked beta-testing. K plus took that away from ordinary users. Now there is no point to leveling up but “bragging-rights”, which is ridiculous.

Topic: Kongregate / Why does Kongregate suck?

Some things that I hate on here:
Kongpanions (why jmtb02, why?)
When K plus ruined the level system.
Rating system for comments.
The dying community.
That popup rate-this-game that is still present.
Game Spotlights (it is ridiculous that they show up in the favorite list and other game sections. Seriously, an advertisement for an MMO doesn’t belong right in the middle of a puzzle game section. It is inconsistent, and all these ads have led me to one conclusion: Kongregate is trying to bully me into getting adblock).
Notable Games section (Which is confusing. Candyman told me that it was like a staff picks section. There already is a staff pick section so…now we have two staff picks sections. Apparently. Isn’t that kind of redundant?)

Topic: Kongregate / TIP: Don't do (>9) kred offers

Here
You are not the first to have trouble with kred offers, and you certainly won’t be the last.
Surprisingly, most of the kred offers I have tried have usually worked. But honestly, I would recommend avoiding them (half of the things I try warn me that there is malaware). Basically, don’t do that “install this and get 6 kreds” crap.

Topic: Kongregate / October '14 Suggestion Thread

It’s not as bad as it was before, but get red of that rate popup window. People asked for it to be removed.

Never pull stuff like this again.

And finally: Get rid of Kongpanions.

If you played Curl Up and Fly, you would notice that they serve no purpose in the game whatsoever.

I assume you are being sarcastic, but regardless, they actually slow down the game (no offense, but it is a very boring game as well, and honestly one of the worst launch games I’ve ever played, but I’m getting off topic).

Don’t worry, you’re not missing out on anything.

Nothing except, well, um…help me out here Kong. What? They don’t have a use except as an ego-stroke for people who are obsessed with being one of the first to get them every week? Ok.

Yep, that is literally what it has come down to. " I sit there till twelve refreshing, but then 40 people get it before me? D: Life sucks!!".

Cursed Treasure: Don’t Touch My Gems! honestly deserves 3 stars in my book. Honestly, the concept was very banal, and the developer proceed to make crappy sequels that were no different from the original game. There are some cases where flash games really don’t deserve sequels (for example: Space is Key Hell is clearly just the original Space is Key, but the developer wanted to make more money, so he colored his game red and called it a new game), and Cursed Treasures is a good example of that: a flash game series that, when new games are introduced to the series, all what the developer really did was just change up the art, which is truly lame. Like Kingdom Rush, do you really think that game needed a sequel?
