Science and Sorcery: Game Development prt.1

For the better part of the year I've been working with my friend Drake doing the character designs for his game, Science and Sorcery, a PC-based strategy RPG that he's been developing for some time. For a while I had to keep things under wraps until he incorporated certain features in his game, but now that more work… » 8/08/14 1:33pm 8/08/14 1:33pm

Funny thing is as a Barbie collector I actually know lots of male collectors and doll artists. Some gay, a lot not gay. Noel Cruz is a doll artist who repaints dolls to look like realistic recreations of celebrities. People are too hung up on gendering stuff :/ » 8/04/14 2:42pm 8/04/14 2:42pm

While I like both I like Spring Rolls a little more. They tend to be lighter than Egg Rolls and crispier when fried. The steamed kind with shrimp and noodles are also delicious, and are best served with sweet Vietnamese sauce. Egg Rolls are best with sweet and sour sauce or even plain. » 8/04/14 1:30pm 8/04/14 1:30pm

My least favorite sidequest of the moment is a hidden cave in Link Between Worlds. You have to do all these going through walls and shooting arrows to get to a chest, and all it had was 100 rupees. So not worth it. » 8/04/14 12:53pm 8/04/14 12:53pm

I've had both happen. I was thinking last year's NDK was gonna suck, but I actually had an absolute blast, even with my epic Con Flu afterwards. Then I had really high hopes for Free Comic Book day and it was really disappointing. » 7/29/14 12:56pm 7/29/14 12:56pm

I actually got games over the weekend. Best Buy has their stupid amazing sale on 3DS games so I picked up A Link Between Worlds and Bravely Default for 20 a piece. Like I said, stupid amazing deal. So I've been playing LoZ. It's been my first new LoZ game in a while actually. Last one I played was Oracle of Time. » 7/23/14 12:43pm 7/23/14 12:43pm

Sadly, humans need hierarchy. It used to be simply the best at finding food or protecting the rest was the best. Then we decided it was based off of who you were decended from, what nation you were from, how much money you have or your skin color, gender, etc. Since we try hard to move past that, the next logical step… » 7/18/14 1:51pm 7/18/14 1:51pm

Lord, so much drama. Okay, so I've mentioned before that we need my house fixed due to evil country hired contractors. We can't do the work because the weather has been so humid that it's been impossible to drag stuff outside without it getting damaged, and it has the additional side effect of causing me and my mom to… » 7/18/14 1:29pm 7/18/14 1:29pm

Okay, let me tell you about this motherfucking game right here. You see it's got fairies? And unicorns? And girls using magic? This was a Larping game before Larping was cool (if it ever was). In it it came with cassette tape, a book of magic, a deck of decoder cards, banners, magical amulets and magic mirrors. The… » 7/15/14 1:46pm 7/15/14 1:46pm

I've never really walked away from a game since I tend to be pretty careful about what I buy, but there's definitely a big contrast between the really pretty backgrounds of Star Ocean: Til the End of Time and the official character designs. I don't know why but...damn. » 7/10/14 1:37pm 7/10/14 1:37pm
