Blog 569: The Final Push of Y4

The big reason I released Project Y4 R01 when I did was because I wanted it to exist in some finished form. I knew that the day would come that I would reach the end of the motivational line, and that day might come before I had implemented all that I once dreamt of implementing.

R02 has been dragging its heels for too long. It’s time to admit defeat and close the door.

Blog 562: The Balance of Y4 R02

I freely admit that Project Y4 has not been particularly well balanced so far. I don’t want it to be, necessarily — certainly not the point of eSports blandness like UT2k4 or Starcraft II — but on the other hand, comments about its difficulty have run the gamut from sheer impossibility to I-could-beat-Drizzt-with-both-hands-tied-behind-my-back.

Yeah, so Arena Y4. Sure, I spent a whole day doing a massive binge, and to be fair, did accomplish the bulk of the work; but after the bulk of the work, came the bulk of the work — fiddling with it and sanding off all the rough edges. I kind of played rather a lot of Fallout: New Vegas and its myriad DLCs instead of working, hence the delay.

But now, ladies and gentlemen, I would now like to present to you… Arena Y4.
