Garrys Mod [PC – Steam] – Robot Combat event

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

Me and my cousin, Steven, were making our own robots after the discovery of the wheels tool, we downloaded a couple of arena maps for the event, we had a brilliant time!

What we did for our robots was get an item, usually a bath, a crate or the pod, attach wheels to it, and optionally a pole with a Saw wield to it or a lance or spear.

Steven recorded the event with fraps, and I took a bunch of behind-the-scenes screenshots of the event.

I made a robot called “Steel Venom”, which a Pod with a BMW wheel attached to each side, and with a pole wield on to it and a saw blade attached to it.

Steven built a robot which is a bath with wheels, and Gman on it doing a pose on it, he called it “Gman’s Mean Machine!”

Steven had this to say about the robot:

I’d like to thank Gman for his participation for the event! I was amazed at how long he could hold his briefcase in the air for so long without a break!

The footage recorded will be edited and aired as a series called “Robostorm: The G-wars!”, which will be a short spin-off to fill the gap towards the release of the Next Generation series.

Here are screenshots of the event:

Gman has begun legal action after he was almost cut in half by a saw blade, he has quit from participating again, so events from now on will use replica ragdolls of Gman for the robot.

It is unknown when the series will be aired, but it should be in a weeks time.

2 versions of the show will be made, one for this blog, which will actually contain vocal commentary by yours truely, and one for Youtube without. This way, you don’t have to hear my boring voice, unless you’d really want to.
