That's the way the bee bumbles.

What Dickie giveth, Dickie may taketh away.

So much drama in this run through. For every foe Larry bests, two more rise to take his place! Everyone want's a piece of ScotBird, and they're trying to cut it out of his midsection with shards of broken glass. But our Lazzah is more than a man. He's more than a woman. He is... RADICAL!! I can't wait to see how you turn this around!

He was paralysed. He did not have a recovery date. You paid ten grand to halve the recovery time of never.

I assume that weekly expenses is based on some function of the amount of money you have in the bank? Apparently wrestlers are incapable of budgeting for the future.

I like that in the chaos of Larry's death, two otherwise great things happened - a Neighbours character started a wrestling career, and a wrestler chastised you for using the weapon "none" in a match. Any other time and those would've been great.

They generally are, that's why you still see old wrestlers from the 80s performing for tiny crowds at lovely indie shows to make a few bucks.

And if Legends House on the WWE Network has taught me anything, wrestlers are also incapable of using basic household appliances.

Liam Neeson and Coach Emerson are both part of a plot to ruin Larry's career. Larry took Neeson's hand, Emerson taught everything Larry knows. Of course Emerson comes to paralyze Larry after Neeson leaves MLG. He also knew Larry would have the Inter title stripped from him for his inability to defend the title. Of course Ghetto Child is there to gloat as Larry musters the effort to stay alive (Ghetto Child still gets his poo poo kicked in not only by Larry and his partner Gordon Chan, but his own tag partner as well). And this all happens right after Larry signs a contract that was originally planned to be a single payoff with zero salary. It was only Larry's negotiating that got him a salary at all. In the books, it would've looked like fair compensation for an 18-week contract.

The MDickie wrestling universe is conspiring against Radical Larry, this run has been full of grudges, feuds, and intrigue, and I goddamn love it.

edit: A new sign to mark this turn in Larry's history.

Also since you were wondering, the game will never give you a shot at the world championship while you still have the intercontinental title, if you want to be world champion you have to deliberately lose the inter title. That's why when you wrestled the world champion before it didn't say the title was on the line.

Congrats, Simo, you made it onto the official mdickie mods list http://www.mdickie.com/mods.htm

I'm guessing he didn't see your videos where you raged against him or he'd probably expunge your chair texture and your tiny-fonted name from the credits. Seriously, what a knob, putting your name in size 6 font because he wants to make sure people know you aren't as important as the Dickster.

I'm surprised MDickie even has a mod section on his site. I figured he'd be like "Feh, these guys think they can make my game better somehow? What a bunch of losers. I'm Mat Dickie, dammit "

I think it's an inner struggle between that and "Mods mean I'm a real game maker!". I notice he describes simo's mod as "staying true to the cartoony visuals whilst still managing to steer things in a refreshingly different direction." as opposed to "makes the game not look like a blind person with no hands made the textures"

If I tried to make a 3D wrestling game, or any game really, it would come out looking much worse than Wrestling Mpire, or even his earlier stuff. I think MD has turned into a solidly mediocre indie developer, which is not bad for a one man amateur shop. I haven't seen how he interacts with his fanbase and with the internet in general, so maybe he's a giant rear end in a top hat on top of it all?

He's pretty good at what he does. Simo frequently points out that his item interaction and emergent story stuff is better than a lot of what ends up in the official games.

edit - Think of Dwarf Fortress, another single man project (with significant issues) that still manages to do things which "real" developers would baulk at.

edit 2: I mean, what real developer would include a gun in their wrestling game that you can actually shoot people with?

I made the mpire mall in 2004 and kept making mods til about early 2006, the forum and other members kept it alive to this day. I'm not a fan of the forum-style mod site, I tried to make a traditional modsite but my free time and attention simply cannot sustain a site like that, and quite simply the interest isn't there.

Mdickie used to / still does hate mod sites, as the mpire mall forums used to hate dickie too for some reason, u never had a problem with him [funnyness asside] . It's a work when I say dickie stole my textures as he did come to me and ask. I wish he would work with me so the new game could have that crispness that [imo] it lacks.

He's tried to get it on steam [remix] but I think gaben probably looked at it and said yuck.

No idea why but I just like making clean cut style textures and they fit nicely into dickies games. I will be remaking all of the Feds and textures when the new 3d game comes out . Looking forward to re-designing the promotion logos and ring aprons. It's all about that attention to detail brudda.

The Dickster's obsession with being a one-man development team is really hurting him if he's turning down the opportunity to have you make his new game look clean at release. Maybe he doesn't want to have to risk sharing that sweet sweet app money with you. No chicken balls for simo tonight.

Hell, Mpire would be vastly improved with just some additional dialogue and storylines. Mix the promos and trash talking a bit and have rivalries and other relationships and previous matches get mentioned now and again.

Ex: "I'm going to crush you like I crushed Ghetto Child last Monday!" It's one of the strengths of the game already and a dedicated writer or at least some outsourcing could work wonders.

E: a love triangle subplot with a grand "win their heart in the ring" match between the two rival suitors would be neat.

It probably doesn't help the one-man-development situation when MDickie is aware that people do like the way his games "work", so I guess he figures adding someone is a potential for changing the games?
