    Now you're missing the point. Duh, likes/dislikes are subjective. The problem is that many people assume custom, (and therefore "good") graphics = good game, which encourages hacks to be half-ass in every other department. The community as a whole needs a new mindset... Which then leads into the issue about why this particular community is slowing down, but it's not really relevant at the moment.

    TLDR; I disagree with your point about people caring more about graphics than substance. Sure, it's awesome to see great new graphics in a hack, and those that are considered to be hacking's "noobs" are normally drawn in their hundreds to hacks such as that, but if that's quite literally ALL it's got going for it, then it won't hold. If a hack's substance is good enough without new graphics, it can be easily as successful, I believe.
    First off, I don't think that good graphics = bad game, or vice versa. That would be a ridiculous mindset. You'd be surprised to find that many people will put up with a mediocre game just because it's flashy, however -- it's not just "noobs". Just by how a game looks (and sometimes even how the thread looks) can influence someone to play a game or not; the idea being that games that look better must have more effort put into them, and therefore must be better. People will often see it through, even if the game doesn't live up to their expectations, all the while HOPING that the game will improve and be as good as they initially thought.

    Well, I'm sure modding keeps you pretty busy. I can see if there's some way to revive my old hard drive, or find the backup USB for HT, or maybe I'll just revisit the whole idea. Or maybe I'll actually write the papers I'm supposed to be working on for summer class. Decisions, decisions...
    That's right, I think you were doing some music work before I left--very cool. My 'music work' has been learning the Irish whistle.
    Have any notable projects popped up since I left?

    It's all right, the friend's doing well now. I've been keeping busy here--I'm working for my college's IT department over the summer. I haven't done much hacking either; all of my HT files went down with the hard drive... (do you have that ROM sitting around somewhere?). I'm thinking about getting back into it, either with an HT remake or a minihack idea I've been batting around... we'll see.
    Hey, it's great to hear from you again. Good luck with the job search. Maybe Game Freak will hire you as a spriter for BW 2

    O Broshi, how long it has been indeed. Nm- making painfully slow progress in school, and working part-time. I'm keeping on keeping on, so to speak I need to get the poke ball rolling again and start posting! How is life creeping along for you, Owe.. erhm.. I mean Eoin!?

About Me

  • About giradialkia
    I'm the guy whose name you have to look at before typing it.

    I love electronic music of many kinds. I make music myself- the link in my usertitle links to my SoundCloud profile, where you can see my tunes.
    (In the event I become forgetful and end up deleting the usertitle link, here it is):

    Aside from that, I just love Pokemon games, haha. I joined on April 4th, 2009, and somewhere along the way I got into ROM Hacking. Until February 2014 I moderated the Emulation/ROM Hacking section, and it was suhweeeeeeeeeeeeeet. :)
    Playing music, listening to music, enjoying music :P

    ROM Hacking, drawing (doodling), reading, watching movies, going out with my friends at the weekend, etc.

    My Pokémon Y character is the same as my username. If you see me as a Passerby let me know! I tend to get a lot of Passerby requests and I often wonder if it's people from this site.

So, if you like electronic dancey music, check this link out:

I've had it as my usertitle for quite a while now, but.. well, I could do with using my blog a bit more often, haha.

That's my soundcloud. I've been playing music (piano) since I was about... five? Five. And for about four years now, I've been producing music electronically. I can play a bit of guitar/ukulele too, but...

I'm actually quite suckish at using my blog, but... I really don't care. I rarely have anything interesting to post but this is something I HAVE to write down somewhere, because it's just too weird.

So in the late 80s, my parents moved from Ireland to Canada. My siblings and I were born there, and we lived there til I finished Senior Kindergarten at age 5. We then moved back to Ireland, where we lived in the sorta suburbs. I went to school there for about two and a half years before...

Here I am with a slightly more controversial blog post. Definitely in comparison to my previous ones anyway, which have all pretty much been little notes about my life.

Anyway, with the death of Apple dude Steve Jobs a few weeks ago, and now with the recent passing of world-reknowned (have no idea if that's the correct way to say it) singer Whitney Housten at the age of 48, it's got me thinking; when it comes to celebrity deaths, there's something that really, really annoys me....

So, it's been a little while since I last posted in this little blog, and... well, I still don't really have that much interesting things to say, but oh well :P

So if it hasn't become clear by this stage, I'm a Scrubs fanatic. (How one could be anything but is totally beyond me). Most people who know me will also know that I'm quite into music in general. And so, when you cross these two fantastic things, you get...

(In case the first wasn't enough to make you notice, my title's will all start in "My", like Scrubs episodes).

So yeah, yesterday I met up with my buddy DrFuji, who came to Ireland all the way from Upside-downia :) We had a pretty awesome day, which consisted of much walking around, then sitting down, then walking around some more. It was odd to talk about the things we usually talk about, but in person :P

So a fair bit happened during the day. We got some food...
