Great news on the Mii editor improvements. I haven't managed to obtain a Switch yet but hope to. If it encourages a revival of Mii creativity then I'll be happy to continue to review and filter submissions.

My apologies about outages. The GamerCreated.com server has some issues as a result of age that can be challenging to manage. I have been making small improvements and adjustments behind the scenes to combat these problems and I can't say that my work is finished -- that means outages are still a possibility and I apologize for them in advance.

I get asked this a lot. I never took the time to program into the site the idea of a deleted account, and so users in the past have simply changed their name and password and stuff and disappeared.

I don't encourage this. Certainly you can remove personal details about yourself as a safety precaution, but if you've contributed to the Mii gallery, you should at least leave your username for the credit. :)

Well, I gave it a shot, even got my Wii working again to test it. The publisher no longer supports the title and the developer no longer exists, so I can only fiddle with things on my end.

I've always condemned game companies for discontinuing online support too soon and hoped to support Blast Works as long as I could, unfortunately there is something in the game preventing an SSL handshake with the server, and I can't seem to workaround it. This all started when the original SSL certificate for Blast Works expired. :(

Sorry, everyone, it's not looking like it will come back soon and I don't believe there's a way to transfer the individual files to SD card for use in the game, as they are not stored separately on the Wii file system, they are instead written into a single large file when downloaded.

In my free time lately I've been doing a lot of gaming (and a lot less work, but hey, life's short). Happy Wars, my addiction for the last 7 months or so, has recently fallen prey to it's own developer's greed and stupidity... so I've been playing the other F2P games on offer. Ascend is really neat, but it needs more content because it doesn't take too long to complete... WSOP: Full House Pro is pretty fun, I like poker so I'm trying to get all of the achievements in it. Battlefield 4 Beta was so great it's now my most anticipated game this holiday. Other than that, I've been playing BattleBlock Theater and Trials and a few other easy pick-up-and-play Arcade games I can blow time on while I anxiously await the new systems.

Oh, and I find GTA 5 to be extremely boring. It's like GTA 4 with a new skin... nice work, but no thanks.

Update... still investigating. This may take me some time to solve since Budcat Creations closed its doors many years ago. :

I think the more they could make it like Super Mario 64 with a touch of Super Mario Kart the better, those two games remain my favorite in the series due to track design, an emphasis on racing over battling, and the awesome simplicity of the items (shells and banana peels) and rarity of the power weapons.

So I'm trying to get into Halo 4 just because I bought it a few months back for cheap... and Happy Wars because of a friend. Feel free to send me a message to join me if you're playing these games. Other than that, time to clean up the back log of games to prep for incoming PS4...

I've been working on a few projects, nothing at all exciting, but working hard enough the last many months that I should have some free time in the near future. I have a personal career-oriented project that needs some attention (a Content Management System for web sites and other data sources), as I'd like to get it to the point where maybe I can release it publicly. I've also setup a streaming channel that I'm going to be working hard on to build up. As you all know I play a lot of games and like creating things, so in less than a month I've already generated about 40 videos. It's been bugging me that there's no great way to put them on here... ...hint hint...

n8BitMan, I'll be looking forward to seeing a prototype of your game.

And Eben, my best suggestion is 20 minutes of cardio 5 days a week and stay away from sugars (alcohol, candy, or starches like potato) for a few months, usually that's enough to drop unwanted weight without beating yourself up about it. I've been researching treadmill desks to avoid blaming my lack of exercise on work demands, but I work from home so that's not an option for everyone.

So I recently started streaming http://twitch.tv/thenerevarine

I'm still mostly just playing Borderlands 2 until I get ahead of the projects I'm working on, I'm in post-game play so it's not as distracting as starting new games (I have quite a few of those). Now you guys can eavesdrop on me! If you "follow" me on that site it will email you when I go live, which is usually around 7-11pm EST.

I recently got a capture device and have been recording whenever I play video games. Unfortunately I lost my Forza 2 save data so I can't make videos of my custom cars because they're gone... but maybe I'll have some time to remake them in Forza 4 at some point... Until then, here's a random video of me playing (not terribly creative but whatever):

No, I usually pull up Google Images on my laptop and have that up as reference. I don't think you can trace, can you? Would that work putting paper on top of the phone and tracing it? I use my finger anyways, but I suppose you could trace with a stylus... never really thought about that.

This is actually not one of my favorites, it you look, his chin is too far from his eyes, he has a super long head. I started straight in with the black background and I should have sketched out the guy first to get the proportions right.

But yeah, I just pull up google images and then finger paint this stuff. I don't upload the bad ones.

You guys know Tocci, I play Draw Something with him in my free time. I haven't taken a turn in almost two months because I've been working for the weekend since, but this is the last thing I drew and I hadn't uploaded it here yet.

I wish I could help you out, I'm pretty good at games but schmups are a whole other story. There are some resident experts here who check in time to time, hopefully one of them will respond to your request, or you may be able to find the answer by digging through old forum posts in the Blast Works forum.

I've mostly been playing Borderlands 2 (as I already mentioned) because my friends play it and I am inundated with other commitments, but I've had some time to check out The Walking Dead from Telltale. It won Game of the Year from Spike VGA (which I don't really take seriously/watch anyway) but it made me curious because it beat out some worthy titles.

It's a cool game. Aside from the cartoon gore, it's pretty much accessible to anyone in that it is very "easy." I have no idea why it won GOTY... it's littered with technical issues, weird gameplay elements and ultimately is more of an interactive storybook/'choose your own adventure' than a game. While I am definitely enjoying my time with it, I feel like giving this "GOTY" over just about any other game released this year is a real slap in the face to game developers and my opinion of the Spike VGAs is now at the ultimate low point.

Nonetheless, I am currently playing The Walking Dead and despite my criticisms, would recommend it to anyone who meets the age requirements. It's $25 for the complete set of downloads or $30 for the disc which comes out tomorrow.

I also recently acquired (but have not had a chance to try) Dishonored, Halo 4, Forza Horizon, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Risen 2 -- all of which I got at incredible prices on or around Black Friday. Hopefully I'll have some downtime after the holidays to check some of them out.


... Also, these videos you guys are making are cool. Keep posting them! I'm learning all about fighting games I never even knew existed.

I played it at a local retail store, if that counts. I got to try the Rayman game which was more or less a 2D XBLA game... I was unimpressed honestly, and couldn't believe the giant Wii U kiosk only had one demo of a 2D game... I would have liked to try Zombii U... but it seemed that Nintendo was more about marketing the pad thing than the games and that had me a bit turned-off given that hardware gimmicks have been (in my opinion) dampening the video game industry the last few years.

There's a slim chance I might acquire one prior to a Mario Kart or Metroid release, as I have no personal interest in it as a game console for now and the Mii stuff has not really been changed much over the 3DS upgrades (according to Tocci)... and moreover, Nintendo is doing this limited-supply approach again like they did with the Wii AND they're not selling it through Amazon, so they basically missed my impulse-buy twice. I'll be keeping an eye on it and it'll be interesting to see what people have to say about it after six months have gone by, because it will probably be that long before they're on store shelves anyhow.

I found a touch of free time to play some Trials Evolution over the weekend, and next week Borderlands 2 comes out... I have a social obligation to play Borderlands, so I'll be making some time for that. I also pre-ordered Resident Evil 6, but I still have FFXIII-2 in it's shrink-wrap from the beginning of the summer!

I still have two personal coding projects I need to finish before I allow myself back into Skyrim, which is what I'd really like to be playing. Once they're done, I'll have a lot of catching up to do playing games and fixing bugs on this site.

I was unaware of a press conference, do you have a link?

I'll buy one if it has backwards-compatibility with my digital purchases and Wii/Gamecube discs... although I might buy one anyway if there's something to do with Miis or another way it could benefit this site for me to own one. I've preordered Pikmin 3 just in case! :)

I have it, it's very easy and sort of lacking in the exploration and adventure departments compared to other Mario games. It's still a solid game with tight controls and nice graphics.

I've been coding my spare time away for the last few weeks, fixing up a program I made a few years ago that needed some love. In doing so, I'm generating some new code, so this will probably result in some very minor updates to the site... I updated some code yesterday that will keep you logged in longer if you select the 'Remember Me' box... a full year, to be exact.

I wonder how Noodle is fairing?

If the graphics are good and there's some return to normal controllers, it will be hard to resist when a Mario Kart or Metroid comes out... especially if it supports 3D...

This game has mixed reviews, so I was hesitant to pick it up right away despite my AR card kick-start. I'm also a bit busy these days but I'll have my eye out for a good deal on it. It's good to hear a positive review.

Hi bobomb, thanks for the suggestion. Are you referring to this http://gamercreated.com/games/blastworks/1334

It doesn't violate the rules set by the publisher, in fact, it's just a girl riding what appears to be a rocket, and she's clothed.

That said, you're still welcome to click the 'Flag Inappropriate' button and if enough people agree it will be removed.

Does anyone play this? I've been posting my best drawings in the "Images" section, and on Tocci's new web site somethingdrawn.com.

You can play a timed/multiplayer version over at omgpop.com which can be pretty fun, as well. I'm not usually one to play web games but I've played it more than once.

If you upload them to the images section we can rate them and they'll likely appear on the front page. When I get some spare time I'll add this and "Draw Something" to the games database so a game can be attached to them.

So about two or three days ago the database server basically went AWOL, created about 50gb of junk data to fill up the drive, and resultantly corrupted a lot of data.

Thankfully after much hair-pulling and brief periods of cardiac arrest, Jose (yours truly) was able to revert the data that was corrupted to a backup from the 19th of March. Most of the data like uploads and users and all the important stuff was retained right up until the site was taken offline, the only thing that you may notice is that if you earned a badge just before-hand, you may need to earn it again.

I'll be using this coming weekend to setup a true mirror of the database so that if the database does have issues in the future, the site will switch to the backup, instead of having the site go down while under repair.

Even though updates have been slow-coming lately, I would like to remind everyone that GamerCreated.com will not up and leave you because of some pesky technical issue, and I am committed to future endeavors with the site when possible!

Thanks for the understanding, if anyone notices anything amiss, please contact me about it as soon as possible!

The top 5 most active people in December were... (drum roll)

celery
Eben-Frostey
King Galaxy

(No surprises there)... and...

UltimateGamer
Cryo

If the winners could contact me I'll see what I can do about setting you up with the rewards. I meant to distribute Wii Points but that plan fell through.

Since this was more about community spirit and 'thanks' for years of loyal Mii-critiquing, and one user has already requested it, if you'd like your reward to go to someone else I will oblige.

I'll make a more official announcement on the home page soon.

I've been playing this recently with a friend, and I retract my "better than Mario Kart" vote. The controls are just not as tight as a Mario Kart game, and it's frustrating sometimes.

That said, I downloaded your tracks Eben... my response: "What..!?" ;)

It's certainly not the same, primarily (I think) because the 3DS has had a rocky start; but also because Miis are already known.

Either way, the 3DS has increased traffic to the site since it's release and the site's not going anywhere: if you build them [Miis], they will come.
