Sophie Christmas 2008

Before last year closed out, we were able to organize two gatherings, one of which is the topic of this post.

This early Christmas party, held last November 29 at Leperman‘s house, was to be more of the same stuff that RR members have grown accustomed to: AC and Tekken, among other games, delicious food, and of course, each other’s sick/funny/retarded company. People signed up and confirmed, and it was destined to go down as another great congregation.

The RR Last Supper

Thank you Big Rigs, the best game ever made. If it weren’t for your greatly detailed textures and spot-on collision detection, as well your tight controls and realistic physics, this shot would have never happened.

Sausage Fest

Late updates seem to be the norm around here. Gotta change that for the New Year, RR!

Sophie - Tongue

PACT III: ah, the day finally arrived. After planning the new regulations for so long, we finally got to try it out in a real tournament situation. And the results confirmed what was lingering there all along, but no one really pointed out… that the format was pure genius. Forcing players to create three distinct (and by distinct, I mean really distinct) ACs was the key to refreshing the way we approached the game as a whole.

Think about it: every round, a different AC to face. That means readjusting everything: your strategy, the tactics you will use, what kind of game you’re going to play, and so on, all while taking into account your opponent’s personal and general playing style. Quite a challenge, and as beastkiller said, it really forces you out of your comfort zone, which is always a good thing.

The matches were great. We had good variety of designs and playstyles.

Eventually we had a winner, and surprise surprise, who else would it be but the best among us? Congrats Leperman!
