FLAVA FLAV!!!!!

I would ask this in a general questions thread, but I don't think there is one for games.

Apparently this guy has released tons of games that pretty much all look the same while each of them being pretty unique in that you manage yourself in various aspects of gameplay. The only game I have played of his sort of is the wrestling one, but I believe a goon overhauled various aspects of that

But I also hear that he is an apparent shithead? I think I have heard that somewhere around the forums. What did he do exactly? Or is it just his personality that is lovely?

Everyone should play DUKE games.



Was his final game The You Testament? I can give him a pass for almost anything if he went off on that note:

He followed it up with Making of a Prophet, which was somehow even more dumb than TYT.

It's a mystery.
Broken into a jigsaw puzzle.
Wrapped in a conundrum.
Hidden in a Chinese box.

A riddle.

This is what I am talking about. I can't think of any other games out there that have systems similar to Mdickie's but it always makes them unintentionally hilarious. But the thing is that the guy doesn't just have 1 or 2 games out, he has like 7 or 10.

We're marooned on a small island in an endless sea, confined to a tiny spit of sand, unable to escape.

But tonight, on this small planet, we're gonna rock civilization.

He has written no fewer than three books about himself, and how amazingly awesome, enlightened and spiritual he is.

quote:


Gaming's most outspoken character finally speaks out about himself! For almost a decade, Mat Dickie electrified the games industry with his prolific output. He used unconventional methods to create unconventional games, and redefined what could be achieved by one man. Audiences responded accordingly and ensured his underground rumblings would resonate around the world. For the first time ever, the true story behind that fascinating period is documented in this comprehensive book. In his own words, Mat takes us on an emotional journey from the childhood dream to the adult that lived it out. Along the way, we learn about the life experiences that shaped his character and fuelled his resolve - and we get the final word on why it had to come to an end. You've played the games behind the life. Now get acquainted with the life behind the games...

This is the same man that made a completely straight-faced game (running on a barely-repurposed wrestling engine) where Jesus teaches you that we all live in the Matrix.

Needless to say, he does not take criticism well.

We did You Testament so thoroughly MDickie changed his loving name.

General Ironicus said this during the Uncharted 2 Retsupurae. Although i'm not sure if he meant his internet handle or his legal name.

This was part of Chip and Ironicus' LP of The You Testament; a reading of MDickie's journal entries.
It will tell you everything you might wish to know about him.

All I know about him is he put out a bunch of his games on OUYA. I never played them, but I can give you a review if you need one.

Well how the hell can you post this and not show us how he responds to criticism?

Now I absolutely need to see this guy flip out and have his frail psyche broken in a blog post or something.
