Take a look at what our Editor noticed throughout 2011!
Posted by Henley on Dec 20th, 2011
ModDB and IndieDB see a lot of new content, everyday more being added, everyday never slowing down. It is enough to make a man go postal, however unlike the post (hence postal getdit?) our lovely sites see their fair share of quirky uploads, odd groups, awesome/mind blowing news, OCD content creators, shitty trolls and WTF moments to quell the rising psychopath inside me, only slightly however.
The Making of Afraid of Monsters/Developer commentary
Golly gosh, who would have known that AoM had such a detailed and colourful history. Any onlookers might has mistaken some of the direction the mod took as short-cuts or the ramblings of a diluted watered down version of Patrick Bateman. However that is not the case, AoM and AoM DC had quite a lot of thought and work put into the game, well worth the watch!
Why we removed High School Shooter
We should have seen this coming, yet our best hopes for humanity were drained when we were mistaken as the creators of this modification by people in a position far greater then our own to falsely report the story of the modification. You can read more in the article itself, but know this. It was not-so-awesome.
We do smashing comps, partly because we do a good job editing and arranging the comp itself but the real star's are you guys.
We had a converstation with the CD Projekt RED guys about how best to promote their new Witcher game. The answer was for you guys to sharpen up your photoshop and slice the two heroes of the game into moments of history. The submissions were fantastic especially the winners.
First they shun us, then they take us in with open arms, then we are banished again! WTH! First Battlefield 3 told modders we are too dunce for their SDK (hardware limitations on normal PC's), then Diablo 3 gets greedy with players being needed to be online all the time to buy virtual items (functionality for a modern gamer), finally we get a bone with Doom 3 Source Code being released with RAGE (nothing to rage about here) and Modern Warfare 3 gets dedicated servers (gun shooting).
Come in, come in. Sit down, now tell me what are you doing here? Do you know what you are doing? Did you know in 2011 a few modders added over 130 skins for AvP 2010 with a very short timespan? There were days I thought the onslaught of predator faces would never stop!
