Contests Galore

With the Prop-A-Thon Contest (Jay_Rawker), Special Item Contest (Zoomer_McTraveller), Elimination Contest 7 (TheThing) and Dispo Declaration Battle (Love_Child) it seems there is more than enough player created content to ignite our competitive natures. Up for grabs are millions in Urbos and specially made gear, so I hope everyone is inspired to participate.


There is a variety of reading material in this issue from some surprising sources. I was quite entertained, myself. And there is also a couple of pieces kept in their original formats as I refuse the sort that mess out. Happy reading!

Bomb Digity Review

Graphics - 9/10

These are pretty good graphics for a Flash game, nice and clean. The time when the character is thrown onto the screen is annoying (With her tongue sticking out...), and that makes me feel ehhh. Overall the quality is really good for a flash game.

Sound - 5/10


It gets annoying after a while, and at least you can turn it off. The sound effects are sort of good and they fit for the style of the game.

Design of the game - 6/10

The platforms are like ICE. They are so gosh darn slippery. And, when a Henchling punches you, you end up falling too far back! What is this, a physics simulator gone wrong? Pretty much.

Improvements

You should be able to choose different characters and the there should be more superpowers.

Total 8/10

An Urbanville Love Letter.

I'm gonna keep this short...

A lot of you reading this may not know who I am. My name is Puncherjoe. PJ to my friends. I'm what you'd consider an "Old Dog". I came to Urbanville a very long time ago. Back before Henchlings got the nerves to jump you on the street, before Johnny Law graduated law school. Nearly 6 years of my life have been spent as Puncher. It shows in my old Chronicles articles. I'm not around as much as I like (I'm off getting my degree in Funkanomics), but it warms my nomadic heart to know that you're here. It brings a tear to my eyes to know a very major part of who I am is still standing.

Urbanville, I love you.

Six years... It doesn't seem that long but yeah... It is. I remembered when I first showed up here. Some snot nosed kid who thought he knew everything. But you obviously showed me that wasn't the case. You took me in like your little kid brother. You were there for me. I'll never forget that. I miss you. I really do. I come visit every so often in a trench coat, watching you from the shadows. Yeah, sounds creepy but it's because of love. But, I digress. I miss you, from the bottom of my heart and the soles of my feet, I miss you. Always have, always will.

This is Puncherjoe saying I'll see ya when I see ya.

New Subway!

Never have we heard of such a thing... A healthy restaurant in Urbanville?
Gonna have to hear this for yourselves, folks! A Subway is coming to Urb!
Give your fellow Love_Child the round of applause here for making it possible.
You must come to try out this new franchise owned by our deputy mayor!
Up to no good, GoatFist has tried and tried again to stop this new shop.
Never has he supported healthy eating... He's a carnivore, after all!
Gonna have to stop him, we are. If you see him, send him a diss!
Let this new restaurant be the buzz of Urbanville!
You guys, after all, are what keeps up alive. Don't let Goaty take it away!
Down went the bank and Subway is soon to follow unless you diss him!

Interview With A Kelvin

ManDude: So, mister Kelvin, what's it like working for Goaty?
Kelvin: Yuh strait upz bruh!
ManDude: ...?
Kelvin: You pikn up wat I putin dwn bruh?
ManDude: Not exactly. Anyway, how's life going for you? I hear you destroyed the bank. Is that confirmed? How was it?
Kelvin: Yuh it waz us strait up beatin dat bank dwn bruh! It waz likez "HEY MONEYZ! YUH BE MINE NOW BRUH!"
ManDude: So, yes?
Kelvin: Koooooool.
ManDude: That's all the answer I need. Take him away boys! *suddenly the whole police force bursts into room, cuffs Kelvin and throws him in a jail cell*

ManDude: That was this week's interview with a Kelvin. Next week, we interview a potato.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ManDude: Thank you to the Urbanville Police Force for making a guest appearance and thank you Kelvin of the henchling community.
Kelvin: Not a problem good sir. I must say this was a positievly INVIGORATING experience!

Dear Inside Poop

It is I, Sacred_A!

Did you and the rest of Urbanville miss me? I assume so, because everyone has left to search for me. Now Urbanville is weak and ripe for the taking. Goatfist destroys the bank and the citizens cheer. This is definitely a spectacular time in our history for us villains.

Mayor DaMan has been kidnapped. I would know, it is I who feed him bread and water every other day. He looks so sad in his cage that no one is looking for him. I told him he should just resign. I even drew up the paperwork for him to transfer the city into my control but he has yet to sign. Soon though, I'm sure.

Oh, what else is new? I see all evidence of the great Family has been swept under the rug. How disrespectful. Fear not though, I have a sneaky suspicion that it will return.

Not really many new games on the site since I left on a secret mission, yet a lot of new gear. These noobs stats are through the roof in only a few months. I guess with no one here they have to make it easy for people to feel powerful when they really are not.

Masked Editor bit the dust I guess, haven't seen that creep in a couple of issues. Or maybe you stuffed him down the garbage disposal? I knew you were a great villain Scoop. It's the smart thing to do.

So with no further delay, I present to you and the rest of the city of Urbanville the official return of sinister Sacred and welcome you all to the time that shall be known as the Dark Days.

Stay stinky!

Forever Vile,
Sacred
