Drop Rate – “Donut Land” by Hitstun

Wednesday, February 17th, 2021 at 7:00 pm | Video

Drop Rate has this super nice dude who plays Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 custom parks and some indie games. He has a knack for finding cool stuff, and he found my PS4 park, Donut Land! Um…I think I broke him. Sorry.

Magnetro – Marvel vs Capcom 2 – Ataraxia Combo Video

Tuesday, January 26th, 2021 at 11:54 pm | Video

We’ve seen tool-assisted Marvel before, but Ataraxia takes it to new heights with camera hacks so we can see some previously offscreen setups. Combo scientists like Magnetro treat MvC2 like a puzzle game where they can create a bouncing Colossus, interruptable Ruby Heart supers, and Dhalsim’s rapid-fire turban attack. Leave it to Magnetro to put out a five minute video that takes a 38 minute video to explain.

Bill Wurtz – here comes the sun

Monday, January 18th, 2021 at 11:59 pm | Video

We made it through 2020! Better times await! Bill Wurtz disappeared for a year, and as it turns out, he spent the year learning Blender. This glorious 3D acid trip is just what we need. I love this style and I want to make a game that looks like this someday. I’m getting back into creative stuff, too. See you soon!

THPS 1+2 Donut Land

Friday, November 13th, 2020 at 12:00 am | Video

For the past two months, I’ve put an unhealthy amount of time on my PS4 building my Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 park, Donut Land. It’s a city with the size of a normal THPS2 level, filled to the brim with ramps, combos, tunnels, transfers, and giant gaps. It’s in the community’s hands now, so I’m curious to see what lines and remixes they come up with.

Tenacious D – Time Warp

Tuesday, October 27th, 2020 at 8:46 pm | Audio | Video

Hi, y’all; I’m back! Between rounds of THPS 1+2, Tenacious D rallied the troops and recorded a cover of a classic Rocky Horror Picture Show song to get people to vote. I’ve already voted, and if you’re in the US, the whole world really needs you to vote, too. Don’t let anything stop you. This country needs a jump to the left and not a step to the right.
