For everyone who has a Wii, on your remote does the FCC ID code on the side of the remote have the word "POO" in it? I only just discovered this on mine!  :lol:

It might just be me :crazy:, but do the tree's in the mobile game 'Bobby carrot 5: Forever' look like a rip-off of the chaos engine's?

Chaos engine from the CC topic of it: http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e106/masonbond/crit_chaos/ChaosEngine1_s9.png

Bobby carrot: http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/8787/98180864ln3.jpg (jpg unfortunately)

If you notice also, part of the tree stump is the same shape and direction as the chaos engine's.

( source of image of bobby carrot - http://www.projectnext.eu/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=13076 don't think the game is released yet. ).

  • It's critique, don't take it personally.

hmmm... it certainly looks similar... but I wouldn't be at all surprised if it was inspired... after all the BMB stuff is quite seminal.

Inspired may be an understatement...



Looks like a bad trace job with "family friendly", non-mixing color ramps  :mean:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Alex Henson-White the one who worked on Bobby Carrot? They look very similar to a mockup on his page, including the rocks and mushrooms.

I could be perfectly wrong though.
"Baboy" is Filipino for pig.

hmm the dollar is going in downward spiral.. to those who are working as free lancers, have you thought of asking for more than you usually get paid in the future? or in a different currency like euros?

dude, that is so strange, I was just checking that out yesterday! I was like, whoa, lololol, it says "POO"

also, I think only the remotes that came with the wii has that, since my other one doesn't and I got it as a standalone.  ???
