too human

i played the shit out of 'too human' for 360 yesterday, and it was awesome. i've had my eye on this one for a while, as i LOVED the last Silicon Knights game i played. This is a big departure from the last adventure they tossed my way. i was lucky enough not to pay too much attention to what the game 'should' have been, so i'm not disappointed by a 'lack of features'.

it reminds me a lot of fable really. not the gameplay, but the games reception. a lot of people STILL complain that fable wasn't 'what it was supposed to be' but it as a great game none the less. this is how i feel about 'too human'. sure, there are things to improve, and the game is nothing groundbreaking, but you know what? it HELLA fun. i can't wait to take it co-op online.

i'll be back to post more as i play more of the game, so keep an eye out for that.

also, i'm downloading 'ratchet & clank: quest for booty' soon, so i'll give my impressions on that too.

see you next time chums!

a friend of mine was recently discussing the idea of making t-shirts. i was listening in as he and another talked about the general idea and look behind the shirts, and i was inspired. not how i would normally be inspired either. normally, i'd think of an idea or two and say 'that would be cool' and it ends there. no, i'm inspired enough to actually DO this time around. i've already made two graphics, and will be purchasing printable iron on paper to test the designs. if they turn out decent enough, i'm going to drop the money and have them printed proper.

i have many more ideas, and i'm sure the more i make, the more i'll think of. so i'd like to say thank you kelle, and jake for talking about making t-shirts. and for letting me in on that conversations. i hope to exchange and share ideas with you in the future.

in the end, maybe they didn't really inspire me so much as motivate me, which is what i needed. BADLY.

Dick Dale

so, i had the opportunity to speak with mr. dick dale today. i couldn't really believe i was sitting there talking to the guy that made 'misirlou' (at least here - the song was originally a greek rebetiko). he was really down to earth, and an absolute pleasure to converse with. i certainly hope to have the opportunity again. what a day.

so, i found my blog site again.  HOORAY!  i'd forgotten about this little dear until someone uttered the word 'bushness' to me.  a lightbulb went off above my head, and then promptly smashed to my skull. thus it reminded me of the site, and chastised me for having forgotten it in the first place.

so here i am, writing here for the first time in over a year.  i don't have a terrible amount to say i'm afraid, but i thought i should throw something up for the occasion.
