New Play Control! Metroid Prime: Differences Between It And The Original.

Posted by Kothra , Mar 17 2009 · 12 views

The New Play Control! version of Metroid prime has been released in Japan.

I have been watching videos of it on the "Video Site that is no to be named".

New Things
  • New menu style. Similar to Metroid Prime 3.
  • New control scheme (duh).
  • Metroid Prime 3's medal system.
  • Voice acting (kinda). At the beginning of the game, when you see Frigate Orpheon, there is some speech-thing, and when you start the game from a save room, and it says on-screen where you are, a voice actually says where you are. I suspect it to be Jay Ward, the guy who did the announcer-thing for those two Metroid songs in SSBB.
  • When your ship sends you objective data, the "Beacon recieved" from Metroid Prime 3 can be heard.
  • I think there was something else...

Name Change

Posted by Kothra , Mar 10 2009 · 28 views

Yes, I changed my name. Get over it.

Aulus is a Latin (Roman) name of unknown origin.

Kothrius is an alteration of Kothra ro make it llok more Latin looking/sounding.

I'm making an armoured spritesheet of me. Roman legionnaire armour.

Oh No...

Posted by Kothra , Mar 09 2009 · 12 views

My main computer doesn't work, and restarts every minute or so.

If we can't fix this, we're getting a new one. Which means all of my games and stuff won't suck, graphic/performance-wise. BUT I will lose much of my art stuff. sad.gif Lucklily, much of it is on Maj/Brickshelf, but still...

I can't come up with any ideas to blog about.

Except that in Rome: Total War, I actually made it to the Marian reforms without quitting. And I'm still going.

The time has come. The latest addition to the Total War series is coming out in America TODAY.

But haven't the cash to buy it. dry.gif

But when I do, I'm going to own the world as the unstopable red legions of Great Britain.

Yeah. I'm too lazy to post the info here, so google it or something. tongue.gif

Information On Kalarii Infantry Units

Posted by Kothra , Mar 01 2009 · 32 views

This entry is an addition to the previous, and gives a semi-dtailed description of each type of Kalarii infantry type.

UPDATE: IMAGES AVAILABLE! CLICK THE NAMES!

Light infantry

- Line/Combat Trooper - these soldiers are usually the most common in any Kalarii combat group. They wear lightly armoured, black, Hoplite-class jumpsuits (same thing as Hoplite body armour)and carry light energy weapons.
- Auxilia Trooper - Auxilia troopers wera light power armour, giving them much better protection in combat than normal combat troops. Auxilia can carry heavier weapons, and are often assigned to hold choke points, provide a second firing line, and carry out support roles.

Heavy Infantry
- Legionnaire Trooper - Legionnaires wear heavy power armour, giving them maximum protection, and allowing them to carry weapons like heavy repeaters and even light cannons. These units are not abundant on the field of battle, due to the cost of the armour. They are often sent to attack and hold key positions or fill commando roles. Legionnaires are equipped with jet packs to provide maximum mobility.
- Praetorian Elite - Praetorians are the best of the best. They are equipped with a variant of the Legionnaire power armour (jetpack included), a heavy handgun, and an energy tower-shield. Praetorians are often found as bodyguards for high-ranking officers, or in the vanguard of an army.
- Shrike Trooper - Shrikes are armoured troops that specialise in close combat. They often carry firearms, but their main weapons are the 3 foot long retractable energy blades built into the wrist gauntlets. Shrikes are equipped with jumppacks (different from jetpacks) to quickly engage the enemy, or (should it be necessary) retreat. Shrikes are used to break through the enemy's front lines, or to flank the enemy

Super-Heavy Infantry
- Gladiator Trooper - Gladiators are equipped with massive suits of power armour. The complexity of the cybernetics and mechanics of these suits make them so costly that no more than a handful are often found in an army. Normal Gladiators have a heavy repeater cannon on the left shoulder, with a six foot long energy blade on the right wrist. They also have a shield generator on the back. This shield, in addition to their armour, makes them nearly indestructable. Some troopers, however, opt to replace the shield generator and cannon with a light/medium artillery gun, and the energy blade with a medium repeater cannon. Others choose to replace the shoulder cannon and blade with a pair of Wave-quake generator gauntlets (like Elite Pirates, Phazon Elites, or the Omega Pirate). Gladiators are either found in the vanguard, tearing up the enemy lines, and smashing/mauling vehicles, or in the rear, providing cover fire.

Special Infantry
- Arcani Operative - Arcani are espionage agents sent out to infiltrate enemy or neutral installations and camps.
They are equipped with light stealth field generator units the mute sounds originating from the immeadiate surroundings (lets say, a 3-4 foot range). These generator units also disrupt light reflect from this same area, relying on microscopic camera/projectors (if someone is on one side of the operative, they would only see what they would see if the Arcani weren't there, as the cameras relay the view to the projectors on the other side of the operative's body. This is covered at all angles). Arcani often work alone. Their normal weapons include an energy pistol, and a long, katana-like vibro blade.

To be finished at a later date.

Kalarii Federation Information

Posted by Kothra , Feb 18 2009 · 27 views

NOTE: The following entry is information that accompianies a (hopefully) future CoT RPG
This will be updated, and currently needs to be fixed.

-IMAGE GALLERY ADDED

Federation of Kalarii States


Measurement Notice
All measurements of time, size, and distance in this text are those of the Human civilization on Terra.
Note that some things covered in this guide are from the Star Wars film series. The entire "Technology" section was inspired by some Star Wars book.


Gallery, when public.


The Kalarii Race
The Kalarii are a race of anthromorphic (humanoid) otter-like alien beings from the planet Kalaras. The Kalarii are a resourceful people, which may account for their extreme advances in technology, among other things.
A normal Kalarii stands at about seven feet tall, with a tail about 4 and a half feet long.
Kalarii have larger brains than humans, allowing them to process information quicker, which partially means that they have faster reflexes.
The Kalarii may be seen by some as fearsome warriors (think Mongols, but with laser rifles), but this is far from the truth. Though the Kalarii are a largely militaristic civilization, they prefer to stay at peace with nations unless:
1) the other nation is seen as a threat to the preservation of the Kalarii Federation
2) the other nation has attacked any Kalarii vessel (military, economic, or civilian)
3) there has been a formal declaration of war from the other nation
or
4) the other nation has assisted another nation in making war against the Kalarii Federation, even if the said nation has not actively fought against the Kalarii Federation.

Kalaras
Kalaras is a planet, similar to Terra (Earth), and has a surface that is about 60%-70% water.
The planet is closer to it's sun than Earth, giving it a slightly warmer temperature (Kalarii room temperature is equivalent to 76 degrees Fahrenheit), and giving it a shorter year (Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion tongue.gif ).
Kalaras is slightly smaller than Earth, and spins faster, with a whole day-night cycle lasting about 21 hours.


Kalaras has two major continents (no names yet), and many large islands. Most landmasses mountain ranges, or isolated volcanic peaks
Kalaras has a slight axial tilt giving it subdued seasons: only a fraction of one of the polar regions is frozen at any given time, it almost never snows south (or north, if you're in the southern hemisphere) of the 70th parallel. Because of this tilt, Kalaras maintains a nearly global tropical climate.


Kalarii Federation Military Ranking System
