I don't understand the paper hud. The computer one makes sense because Merc Mc. Genericpants might have some digital glasses or something. It wouldn't make sense to have paper glued to your face.
Paper HUD looked better to me, in term of aesthetics. Or maybe I just got way too used to color brown in games.

You should get a twitter since that's what all the cool people use. I prefer the C64 font over the VGA font, but that's probably because I started off on a C64 and then got a PC (and the C64 font has dingbats like a love heart and Pac-Man!)

I'd prefer twitter. If I'm on the go I can open a twitter app instead of safari and painstakingly browsing to the thread, letting images load, going to the last page, scrolling through dozens of posts. I'd prefer a twitter, I think.

In the UI when you need to show a picture of a gun you could equip you should do something like MGS:PW's gun icons [img]http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs50/f/2009/319/6/9/MGS_PW_gun_icon_improvements_by_kliefox.gif[/img] Just something in this style looks like it would fit perfectly on the HUD

I was thinking more like if you were looking at a gun and wanted to pick it up, you could see a icon that represents it, a la call of duty series.
[QUOTE=UnknownDude;28878697]That would be unnecessary because the HUD is supposed to be minimalistic.[/QUOTE] Those icons are minimalistic
yeah yeah, i'll see if looks good or not
Or even in the buy menu when you're selecting guns to buy.
[QUOTE=gufu;28869031]Paper HUD looked better to me, in term of aesthetics. Or maybe I just got way too used to color brown in games.[/QUOTE] This way it's a bit more subtle, the fact that it isn't projected perfectly (chromatic derping), the retro text and fingerprints imply both limited technology and dirtiness in general. Simply putting cloth and sand on because, hey, there's a bunch of sand around is way too direct and reminds a bit too much of a 90's RTS game. [QUOTE=Samuelgames;28878734]Those icons are minimalistic[/QUOTE] I think he meant minimalistic in the sense that whatever magical device that is projecting those items can only do text, not images. Although it might fit anyway.
[QUOTE=H4ngman;28458812]Oh boy. Here is the dog head robot concept I promised. Just a vague inspiration. Should I go ahead and make a detailed one or is there no need? It is basically a model that looks more like an actual industrial robot with a huge counterweight and battery pack. As for animation, I figured, it would move really jerky and slow like a stop-motion puppet. The meele spear would jab upwards while moving. The thought of that thing stalking a dark corridor gives me shivers... I took the inspiration from a nightmare. The megaphone emits really fucking loud crackling and static when starteled, maybe with a bit of barking mixed in? The only way to kill this fucker is to shoot the head. Is that too easy? Put a more resistant protection glass bowl over it. If the meele attack is too weak, I already had an Idea on the left. The other thing is the dog head sentry thingy. It rotates and makes terrifying sounds if enemies approach.

I don't see why you need to know the full, detailed name of the guns in the HUD. I mean you can see them in the inventory if you need that much detail? Simple icons such as those above would make more sense in my opinion.
Yeah Icons is a better idea.

The bad jokes makes this thread special
In Soviet Russia, special makes jokes on you.
