What do you consider your greatest achievement and what is your top goal... on Newgrounds and off?

Cyberdevil responds:

My greatest achievement on NG was probably getting pentalisted recently, and my top goal... hmm. It might be getting hexalisted, or getting to the top of all lists, or getting to level 60, or just putting stats aside and spending effort on creative work that I'm proud of.

As for life, my greatest achievement so far might be the woodshed I timbered by hand last summer. It's not very big or complex, but it's a stable construction that will probably still be standing long after me, and it was made without any motorized tools. :) As for my top goal, I've been searching for one the past few years, still haven't found it.


2013-02-24 15:56:23

Do you like to party?

Cyberdevil responds:

I'm a quite quiet and contained individual so... hell yeah! :D


2013-02-24 16:03:32

What's the best number there is?

Cyberdevil responds:



2013-02-24 16:05:05

Okay, how do you think about NG BBS regulars?

Cyberdevil responds:

All the really regular regulars that have been regulars for a long time are awesome. :)
And some of the new ones.


2013-02-24 16:16:07

Why is your username Cyberdevil?

Cyberdevil responds:

I used to play Doom a lot, and when I signed up here the viciously demonic Cyberdemon was fresh on my mind. Also because it sounded cool. Considering how much time I spend on cyberspace it's still fitting. :)

And I still play Doom.


2013-02-24 16:17:08

Q: how are you?

Cyberdevil responds:

Great! Thanks for asking. :) You?


2013-02-24 16:17:21

Where do you find the time to statwhore...?

Cyberdevil responds:

I prioritize. Studies? Nah, NG gives me a much bigger sense of accomplishment. :) Maybe when I get a real job I won't have any real time, better live in the moment!


2013-02-24 16:35:48

how do you feel about the illegality of spcyhadelic mind opening drugs ?

Cyberdevil responds:

I don't really do spcyhadelic mind opening drugs so I don't mind them being illegal. They should legalize pot though, worldwide, the governments could profit from it too.


2013-02-24 19:27:11

Are you looking forward to the new "Evil Dead" movie?

Cyberdevil responds:

I didn't even know about it! I am now. :)


2013-02-24 21:27:52

What did you think of the Doom Film they made a few years back?

Cyberdevil responds:

I was disappointed, since it barely had any relation to the classic games at all. As a movie it wasn't bad, but as a game-based interpretation it's horrible. Doom 3 moved away a little bit from the classic plot, and moved from carnage to stealth, but it still featured familiar monsters and locations, and similar scenery. The movie didn't have any of the classic game elements in it. All cybernetic demons were missing, the imps weren't imps (they're just 'impish' in nature). It was more of a zombie movie than anything Doom related. I would've enjoyed it if it wasn't supposed to be based on the game. :/


2013-02-24 21:58:56

Eh Im ok

Cyberdevil responds:

That's good. :P


2013-02-24 22:14:38

Cat or Dog? Star Trek or Star Wars? What are the last three websites in your browser history besides newgrounds?

Cyberdevil responds:

Dog. Star Wars. Gmail, Google & CyberD.


2013-02-24 22:15:39

top ten first person shooters?

(Updated ) Cyberdevil responds:

Hmm, tough question. Right now these are the ones I recall, but I'm probably forgetting at least a couple of classics:

1. Oni
2. Doom 1/2
4. Resident Evil 1/2/3
5. Parasite Eve 2
6. Metal Slug
7. Quake 2
8. Half-Life 2
9. Goldeneye
10. Doom 3

I've been made aware that half of those games aren't strictly FPS. :P So, here's a new top 10 with hopefuly only FPS games in it:

1. Doom 1/2
2. Resident Evil 4
3. Quake 2
4. Half-Life 2
5. SiN Episodes
6. Goldeneye
7. Max Payne 1/2
8. Unreal
9. Doom 3
10. 8-Bit Killer


2013-02-25 00:02:52

How are you with machinery or computers?

Cyberdevil responds:

I'm good at using computers; not very experienced with building them, or any other machinery for that matter, not even cars. ;) Hopefully I will be eventually!


2013-02-25 04:42:04

GTASA and Parasite Eve aren't first person shooters :) and yes Doom is badass, the movie was nothing like the game at all, unfortunately. I actually was in the process of writing a script for a movie, very loosely based on the plot for Doom 2, but this time including all the original monsters, such as cyberdemon, archville, the guy that throws homing missiles and such.

Cyberdevil responds:

Huh, looks like they're sorted as action-roleplay and action-adventure. I guess it's the same thing with Resident Evil and Oni, hmm. It appears I've been bunching pretty much all action games in the same genre. :)

Sounds awesome. Is the script going to be used for something or just stay in written form?


2013-02-25 06:16:39

I'm bored so I probably have a lot of questions I could ask, most of which game related.

Do you have a Steam account and if so, what games?

Cyberdevil responds:

Go ahead, ask! ;)

As for Steam, I don't have an account. I'm actually a bit against the whole concept of collecting all games on a single interface and being reliant of that interface to play or attain games. I'm a big fan of GOG though. Are you interested in that collection? Also like buying obscure games second hand hoping I'll find some old gems I haven't heard of yet, but mostly I stick to old favorites. :)


2013-02-25 07:22:40

GOG is a good site but I'll never fully appreciate their work until they get Metal Fatigue on there.

You mention old gems, which in particular? The ones I like to play are Populous the Beginning, Metal Fatigue, Heroes of Might and Magic 2 (Original, not the Price of Loyalty expansion one with that cd opera music) Gangsters 2 and.... the Daedalus Encounter

Cyberdevil responds:

Never heard of that one, but there are a few other classics they're still missing. All idSoftware games for one, like Doom, Quake, Castle Wolfenstein, Commander Keen, etcetc, and capcom games like Resident Evil. Maybe the demand isn't as high for those since they can all be played on modern computers anyway...

Doom is the biggest old gem of all! But apart from that: Mega Race, Aladdin, Space Junkie, Day of the Tentacle, Serious Sam (if that can be considered old yet), the Ultima series, Worms... that's all I can think of right now. I bought Populous a while back, though I still haven't played it yet. Oh, Abuse! I haven't played that in ages, it used to be a favorite...


2013-02-25 08:17:46

You've not played Populous? You need to, great little RTS game. I'd play you online if I thought you'd be interested. Worms was great too but which Aladdin do you mean? snes or genesis?

Well since it's a Q&A how about a real question, do you enjoy RTS games? If so which ones :> (Like Starcraft 2 etc)

Cyberdevil responds:

I tend to stay away from those kinds of games since RTS is a time-consuming genre. But I will play Populous, someday, eventually, thanks for the offer! I actually haven't played any real games in a few weeks, too much else going on.

It was the PC version of Aladdin, which I assume is ported from one of the consoles you mentioned. Is there a big difference? It was a surprisingly fun platformer, considering it's so old.

I haven't honestly played any RTS for enough time to get any favorites. I've tried Starcraft (also the Broodwar expansion) and Warcraft and Red Alert and a bundle of similar games, but I didn't stick to any of them. Not to say I don't enjoy them, I've just always chosen racing or shooters over strategy games when I had to choose. In school we actually played Sim City (does that fit in the RTS genre?) during class, for educational/recreational purposes. In elementary they had Sim Ant installed everywhere, so those are probably the games I've played the most of.


2013-02-25 11:07:57

RTS isn't that much of a time sink, it's Turn Based you have to worry about. There is a big difference between teh 2 aladdin games though, the snes one was all about platforming (and is considered the better fo the 2) while the genesis one gave you a sword to attack with.

Starcraft+BroodWar is the most famous RTS there is but I wouldn't call Sim City an RTS, not in the traditional sense. I'd say it was a strategy sim. SimAnt is more of an RTS (I think I still have it on cd somewhere)

If you do feel up to multiplayer play then it wouldn't be too hard, Hamachi would be the way to go probably.

Cyberdevil responds:

Most RTS games are built in a way that you can keep playing forever though, I like to play games till there's more to play so there's a risk they would be time-consuming for me. :) As for Aladdin, I don't remember a sword, so I guess it was the good version. Groovy!

Thin line between the genres. :)

Will have to take a rain check on that for now, but it would be fun sometime.


2013-02-25 12:35:22

Which is your best flash project?

Cyberdevil responds:

Hmm, on NG? So far it's probably the BBS Quiz 2012, but there's plenty of projects I haven't posted yet, or that I've posted earlier that are no longer here (as in before my account was hacked). I've made some pretty neat games and gadgets that I'll hopefully get to refining and posting later this year. Nothing complex, but hopefully fun!


2013-02-25 12:43:10

How many roads must a man walks down, before he can call himself a man?

Cyberdevil responds:



2013-02-26 08:20:05

Making some new stuff?

Cyberdevil responds:

Not right now, but I will as soon as there's time! :)


2013-02-26 09:52:43

What did you think of the NG BBS 2012 Quiz?

Cyberdevil responds:

I think it was a lot of fun, and I'm proud of the end result, even though many questions are based more on opinion than general consensus and fact. :) I've never really learned AS from the ground up either so it was a challenge to make, and the first game I've included medals on. I think it turned out pretty well! How about you, what do you think of the NG BBS 2012 Quiz?


2013-02-26 12:12:53

Can you speak swedish?

Cyberdevil responds:

Absolut, det ar mitt modersmal! :)


2013-02-26 17:04:07

why do you post so much?

Cyberdevil responds:

Because I need to catch up. I missed a couple of years. :P


2013-02-26 22:10:54

I loved it and would like to see more BBS-related entries in the portal. I do agree the questions were a bit opinionated, but I'm just happy I made the quiz. :3
Can't wait for the next one!

Cyberdevil responds:

Glad to hear it. The next edition is only... 11 months away! :)


2013-02-27 01:59:06

What do you think of this video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCv-HxktZFc

Cyberdevil responds:

Awesome. :D


2013-02-27 15:35:19

what is love?

Cyberdevil responds:

Baby don't hurt me! Don't hurt me! No more...

Serious answer: love is passion, compassion, care and understanding. Love is unlimited. Love is undemanding. Love is... not hate. :/


2013-02-28 04:49:32

you play guitar right?

Cyberdevil responds:

I used to, now it's mostly a forgotten art. Took lessons for two years and then stopped for a... decade. :/


2013-02-28 16:54:08

How come that you as a 23 years old being know Haddaway songs (see answer to bocodamondo)? :P
You mentioned today that you are not a big soccer fan. Which sports do you prefer?

Cyberdevil responds:

It might be because of this: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/
view/364202 (great animation if you haven't seen it yet), or because of a techno/dance remix I think I still have on some CD somewhere, or maybe I heard it even earlier. It still plays on the radio every once in a while. :) I like most music from the 70s - 80s though, especially classic rock, and my older brother (he's 40) probably introduced me to a lot of bands from before my time!

As for sports, anything with rackets. Table tennis, tennis, badminton, etc. I rarely watch sports or play sports, but if I do then it's bound to be one of those. Or just walking/running/venturing out in the wild! :)


2013-02-28 23:14:49

Wait, this video is more amazing. It's a goat compilation thingy.

Cyberdevil responds:

lmao, that's almost too much! :D


2013-03-02 09:53:16

Where do I purchase megaspheres?

Cyberdevil responds:

Unfortunately you can't buy them, but I hear they can be found on Mars or hell!


2013-03-03 07:09:16

What's your worst enemy?

Cyberdevil responds:



2013-03-03 17:09:52

ah, yes....here in the back....three questions, mr. cyberdevil.....

1. Is this your embarrassing video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hfEGUf8sC0
2. What is the genre of game you are collaborating on with Amaranthus?
3. What IS a cyberdevil....is it what you/randominternetdude says in that video?

Cyberdevil responds:

1. Nah, this is probably my most embarrassing one: http://youtu.be/peh5U6E4T_o
2. It's a quiz-type puzzle, according to NG's categorized sorting system..
3. I think I actually posted the answer to that somewhere below, just a sec... here's a copy:

I used to play Doom a lot, and when I signed up here the viciously demonic Cyberdemon was fresh on my mind. Also because it sounded cool. Considering how much time I spend on cyberspace it's still fitting. :)

And I still play Doom.


2013-03-03 18:25:31

Ah, yes, I see I see. Okay, yes...good to know you are not 16 and "just returning from camp, working at gramma's store".
Quiz-type puzzle, eh...okay, as long as it is not Nintendo DS Trivia!
And wait! why cyberdevil, when the original was Cyberdemon?! HM?! HMMM?! EXPLAIN THAT ONE


Cyberdevil responds:

Good indeed, though I wouldn't mind still being 16, that would give me a real headstart on life and work and everything...

You don't like Nintendo DS? :P It's NG BBS trivia though, mostly.

Because Devil > Demon. ;)


2013-03-04 08:35:33

What's the secret for eternal life?

(Updated ) Cyberdevil responds:

Honey and milk. It's an ancient recipe for immortality. ;)


2013-03-04 08:47:20

I wanted you to answer cyberdemon and IDDQD but all I got was disappointment :(

Cyberdevil responds:

Haha, that might work too, life is a game!


2013-03-04 18:21:45

Knock knock.

Cyberdevil responds:

Who's there?


2013-05-11 23:49:45

are you omnipresent? you seem to be everywhere on this site
and why is quake three not on your list?

Cyberdevil responds:

Unfortunately not... just omnipotent. Quake 3 isn't on the list because I haven't played it yet. Don't think I've even watched a trailer for it. Is it worth it?


2013-05-12 15:39:05

definitely if your into id software games
best fps ever in my opinion
most fun for multiplayer anyway

Cyberdevil responds:

Not much for multiplayer in FPS, but I am into iD Software games. :) The ones I've played so far haven't disappointed, apart from Doom 3, a bit. I'll check it out!


2013-09-22 16:23:23



2017-05-27 03:12:53

nope...this is 42

Cyberdevil responds:

Could it be... someone deleted a comment? Someone's comment was deleted? I...miscalculated? O_o
