Return of the Golden Ratio

Posted by supercomputer276 on February 1, 2011 at 7:10 PM Comments comments (0)

If you take a look down at the bottom of this page, you'll see one of my older articles around there showing my explaination of the "fan-to-comic" ratio of Smack Jeeves comics and what the ratio was for all of my comics at that time. Well it's been a month shy of two years since then, so let's see how everything stacks up now!


(If you want to read any of these comics, make you way to the Webcomic Gallery.)

All the Myriad Ways

Posted by supercomputer276 on January 16, 2011 at 12:43 PM Comments comments (0)

I'd like to take a moment to talk with out about possibility.


It's my firm belief that, in some form or another, nothing is impossible. If there is something that is impossible in this world, such as, say, a handheld portal-creating device or a giant talking TV-obsessed gecko, then there exists a world where it is possible.


Yes, I believe that video games are a window to another universe. But not just video games, no; books, too, and movies and television. ...

When Warren Spector signed on for this game, he said "You know, this is probably impossible, we're probably going to fail." Did they? ...A little.

The Acara in the Mirror, and Why We Write About Her

NOTICE: This entry was originally written as an article for the Neopian Times on Neopets. As they seem to have discarded it, it will instead be posted here. This article was written for that audience.

 

I have always been a dedicated Neopian Times reader, enjoying the various comics and stories it has had to offer for a good long time. Indeed, I believe my knowledge into the art of writing and literature more than makes up for my lack of physical prowess and Battledome...

Sly as a 'Coon

In case you completely missed the whole site revamp, I've changed my site around from Mt. Majesty, the Internet home of the Game Over and general video game fansite, into Lone 'Coon Productions, a more personal site through which I showcase my works, Game Over or no. The name pulls from my fursona change a few months or so back from former author avatar SC to an anthropomorphic raccoon, and my tendancy to do everything by myself. For those wondering about Game Over Productions, that'll still ...

Genius! (written July 11, 2010)

One day not too long ago, I was browing through TV Trope's Wild Mass Guessing pages for various video game series I had interest in. One of these was WarioWare's, and one of the theories was that the majority of the series's main cast were geniuses as defined in a tabletop RPG game, Genius: The Transgression (its TV Tropes page

Split Paths (written 3-22-2010)

During this past week or so, I read about the webcomic Sonichu on TV Tropes (trust me, DO NOT look it up until you finish reading this). Given what I read there, I'm not willing to go look up anything else about it beyond reading the first few subchapters redrawn by someone who is a very good artist.

 

To summarize: the comic (supposedly) centers around a Pikachu-Sonic hybrid called Sonichu (appropriately enough) and his life in CWCville. He has a girlfriend, a Raichu-...

A Look at Sonic in Two Parts

Posted by supercomputer276 on July 29, 2009 at 4:03 PM Comments comments (0)

Part 1: My View on Eggman v Robotnik

Let's set up the groundwork here: in Japan, the main antagionist of the Sonic was named "Dr. Eggman". Always have been, always will. However, trying to avoid choking on a copyright (on a Beatles song, no less) when they were trying to compete with Nintendo, Eggman was renamed Dr. Robotnik in the English localizations. In recent times, I've heard many old-school fans want Eggman to go by his last name instead of his nickname already (canonically, hi...

Not Exactly GOLDEN Ratio, But...

Posted by supercomputer276 on February 21, 2009 at 11:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Whenever I'm browsing Smack Jeeves and see a recently updated comic that catches my eye, the first thing I check is what I call the "fans to comics" ratio. Calculated by dividing the number of people that have faved the webcomic to the number of individual comics, I believe that the ratio is a good measure of webcomic quality. Sure, there are a few exceptions, but generally if you have more than one fan for every comic you post, you're doing something rig...
