1. [RP Favorites] The Blood Bowl

      written by Ray Benefield
      Welcome to the first article of a new series. RP Favorites are just that... a bunch of things that I found fun, awesome, unique, or just downright magnificent. This series is going to consist of smaller sized posts with one or two paragraphs talking about whatever it is. They could be maps, gametypes, screenshots, films, etc. Note that this stuff is what I like. We may have different tastes. I won't guarantee that the selection is going to be biased free, but its my personal blog right? So I do what I want. If I like it, you may like it too. If not, then move along... these are just recommendations. Their favorites and not features. Feature implies that they are perfect and awesome. Favorites implies that I enjoy them. So take what you will from this series. The series is here to give you a little something more to read and throw out recognition where it's needed. Originally I was going to write a Forge Lesson today, but I was gathering my thoughts and I'm not quite ready to post it. So instead I'm changing up the schedule and posting Lesson 32 tomorrow. Before I start, I wanted to throw out a special thanks over to Louis and Grim over at http://halo.bungie.org. Those guys have been very supporting by front paging the forge lessons as well as Hoarders. Thank you guys very very much... it means a lot. Too much talk... on to a dish best served cold. ;)


      Let's start with a video of The Blood Bowl made by Prodigious 7K, shall we?

      Not bad at all. This my friends is a blast to play and I'm honored to have playtested it before it came out. So how does it work? Simple... the FFA version (Monday Night Goosin') is infection based. The infected start in the little rooms on the side and then shoot explosives down into the bowl. The humans race around the bowl in a mongoose trying to stay alive as long as possible in order to score last man standing. There is a custom powerup that spawns in the center that "unlocks" the armor ability that you choose as a loadout. You can use that armor ability to help you stay alive, but you have to leave the safety of your trusty mongoose. When humans die they become infected and add to the chaos.

      The team version (Tuesday Night Goosin') on the other hand is KOTH based. One team works like the zombies and just creates chaos in the bowl trying to eliminate the other team as quickly as possible so that they don't earn too many points in the hill... and then it switches. In the team version you only have one life so use it well. Pretty simple right?

      Prod has been a loyal reader of RP ever since I started this ages ago. He is a great friend of mine and deserves the attention. Prod... I love The Blood Bowl. Keep up the great work. I hope the rest of you enjoy it as much as I do. And now for the download links.

      This looks really good, I can't wait to try it out next time I have a big party together.

      One of the most beastly mongoose minigames ever. I mean, really, we're circling around in a giant bowl getting shot at by rockets, fuel rods, and other various explodie things. It has the "End of the World" and "Hurricane Katrina" feel, but with a point.

      Btw Brik... did you want me to Favorite Reverb soon or did you want to do some changes to it first? Also if you could get a video done for Reverb, I would love you forever. :P

      Give the world these abilities and Blood Bowl happens.

      We can never have enough of any.

      Haven't gotten the chance to play it, but I got to take a look around in Forge. Everything is very clean, and the idea is a very unique take on Infection. As soon as all my friends manage to break away from New Vegas and Fable III, I'm going to rope them all into a game or two of this!

      very much like what I've seen on halo 3, however the bowl makes it a original take on it. Can't wait to play it sometime. good work prod.

      So much crazy fun. Its great to try and see if you can figure out a safe route as a mongoose. And even better to create a coordinated "All zombies use ConcussionRifles!" attack

      This seems like TONS of fun. Downloading it right now.

      Prod said...

      As long as you mention me somewhere if you post it, go for it.

      I've already told a couple of my friends that they can use it if they want.

      As long as if you post it, i get credit for the parts i made, then go for it.

      anANGRYkangaroo said...

      Thanks :) Ill be sure to put your name in the description for credit, and I extremely rarely post anything online...
