AdventureQuest 3D - Legend of Lore Alpha Test
In a surprise twist, our crazy and unscripted Sock Puppet show ended with the start of our 1st alpha test for AdventureQuest 3D: Legend of Lore. The alpha test server is currently offline, but this test is not over yet. So if you have not gotten your 250pts yet -- do not worry! We will continue the test next week after making a bunch of fixes. This really does feel like the start of a new "good ol' days." Minimal and I recognized so many of you from the AQWorlds Alpha and the PTR. It was almost like a reunion. A lot of familliar names were missing though... so looking forward to seeing the rest of you very soon!
Hanging out with players near the Chapel.
There are SO MANY BUGS to fix. My favorite, though, is when one person jumps EVERYONE jumps. That is almost a feature. The server crashed 3 times during the test. But overall, things looked really promising. If you look to the right (soon) there will be a link and "server status" for the new 3D game. Please check here often to see when the alpha is playable.
American Ninja Warrior... Chairman Platinum on TV!?
On G4 this Sunday, the TV show "American Ninja Warrior" will be showing its southeastern regional qualifier episode. Which we should all watch because there is a REALLY good chance that Chairman Platinum, wearing his black suit, will be running the obstacle course. If you want the FULL STORY... read on!
My good friend Roam (you may recognize him from the HeroMart video) told me he wanted to be on the American Ninja Warrior show. Realizing this was a terrible idea... I immediately joined him and we filmed and made submission videos. Chairman Platinum found out about this -- and apparently made a submission video too. The people in charge of the show approved ALL three of the videos and invited us to compete... provided that the Chairman wear his evil black suit, Roam wore renaissance gear and I wore my armor. Excited about being able to compete against Chairman Platinum in person, we made an agreement that if I won, we got Oversoul back. However, the stakes were high, if Chairman Platinum won... he got our entire game studio. O_O You know what they say, "Go big... or go home." We anxiously awaited to find out when they were going to film the show... but when I got the call... I WAS ALREADY 6,314 MILES AWAY IN JAPAN! (I am not making this up.) Unable to return home in time, the only option was for Roam to compete against Chairman Platinum on my behalf. He did. But contestants of the show are forbidden from revealing what happened or posting pictures until AFTER the episode airs. The rest of the staff and I will not know what happens until the show is on TV. They were filmed in Miami and that episode is airing this Sunday night at 9pm EST on G4 TV. I was anxious to announce this earlier... but, you should know, there are literally hundreds of contestants that went to the qualifiers in Miami. They only show a handful of the people who compete on TV. So before I went announcing this all over the place we needed to verify that they were actually going to appear on TV! But when Roam and I called the producer they were unable to tell us. So... we do not know if Chairman Platinum or Roam will appear on the episode or not. If they do... they will be easy to spot! So there it is, the whole story. The team is going over to my house to watch Sunday night... we will see you on Twitter!
