Hello and welcome to the 40th Mod Report! It’s PAX week, so there’s really not much to talk about, but I’ve still gotta at least tell you that, so here we are again!
Halloween Build Challenge
Well, we’re not starting yet. But, we are quite close to announcing it officially (I guess, technically, this could be considered an official announcement, but you know what I mean.), so we figured we’d give you a little hint of what’s to come! It’s going to be another week long build, but think big. Turbo-Tastically big. And, from ISo: “And we’re denying everything in the Halloween Suggestion thread that’s already up.”
Quotes/Videos of the Week
Well, despite much actual work getting done in Mod Chat this week, we still managed to find the time to goof right the hell off, so we’ve got plenty of Quotes of the Week!
First, from Chris, we have a line that needs no introduction: “I never thought in my life I’d be googling Drunken Robot Pornography” (It’s a game, Chris says)
Then, from ISo, something that bears repeating, even if the answer is yes: “Did we already say in a mod report that when the zombie apocalypse happens we’ll be the best zombies? I feel like we did.”
We also have another Casual quote! “bah. I shall never be queen of switzerland. The Kaiser of the Holy Roman Empire is too much of a tyrannical dickcheese”
And finally, kshade gets jelly about PAX Australia but no PAX Europe: “I bet they think we all speak Europeanese and are too dumb to lern us enlgish or something.”
And now to the Videos of the Week! We’ve got 3 this week, because I couldn’t pick just two. First, the best voice over ever. Second, we have a new video from the guy who made the best cover of “My Heart Will Go On”! And finally, a song that really makes more sense if you watch these live.
Alrighty, that’s all for this week’s Report, as always, join us live at http://www.twitch.tv/themodreport every Sunday at 7 PM Pacific!September 2, 2012 at 10:31 pm #50935
Yeah! We do pretty good enlgish here!September 2, 2012 at 10:42 pm #50936
I… don’t really understand the “we’re starting earlier because it’s going to be bigger” thing Fraser said if we’re only getting a week.September 3, 2012 at 5:50 am #50954
Looking forward to see what you guys come up with this year for Halloween.
Also that last video = <3 I love that song. ;3;September 3, 2012 at 7:23 am #50958
So everything that was posted in the Halloween suggestions thing is being boycotted and we’ve got to come up with fresh ideas?September 3, 2012 at 7:46 am #50959
I think its just a joke khroalSeptember 3, 2012 at 9:36 am #50966
iso doesn’t joke (except when he does)September 3, 2012 at 10:08 am #50972
I’m also curious of how we are getting a week? i would understand that for the trick or treat. But I’ll keep my mouth mostly shut in case this is the first planned timeframe.September 3, 2012 at 10:30 am #50976
this is a good point you bring up cogswell, I forgot it was iso who said thatSeptember 3, 2012 at 11:50 am #50980
Last year a month was barely enough to finish the build. How are we gonna make it this year with only one week?
@khroal If people start discussing ideas on the forums beforehand, then other people can steal them, get them approved and someone will be very angry. Keeping discussions off the forums until the official thread is up and instead handle it on Skype or a Google document is probably the best way to go about it. This has been adressed by the mods on multiple occasions in the past.September 3, 2012 at 12:28 pm #50981
“week-long” and “think big” may or may not be related.September 3, 2012 at 1:53 pm #50990
a week is way too short for a build. the last 2 we had about 3 weeks to a month to get everything done on time and some people still had to rush.
Also, the ban of the ideas for the halloween build sucks because it takes away a ton of ideas for builds that people had agreed to work together on. but it will avoid the “you stole my idea you jerk” thingSeptember 3, 2012 at 2:08 pm #50992
ISo’s thing was a joke, I’ve been told. As for the week-long part, I know I was the first to bring it up (most peoples’ reactions will be the same, I think), but we should probably just wait and see when the topic goes up. We may be worrying over nothing, given ISo’s post.September 4, 2012 at 7:35 am #51075
Don’t worry, I highly doubt it will end up staying a week long anyway. I recall our previous four builds have all started out as week long and got extended to weeks and months. It’ll be fine.September 4, 2012 at 11:35 am #51089
