• Working on a new game!

    I am in the process of working on a concept for a new game. I will try and share bits and pieces as I iron out the details of what I want to do. So far, this is looking like it might be a very big project that I probably will not be able to do alone and instead I am having more fun working on the concept. If enough people like the idea, maybe it can get picked up by someone to work on it, who knows!



  • On the Topic of Asians

    http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=55851254 I recently got into a discussion about Asians and how they are viewed in non Asian countries. Many times they are seen as ‘exotic’ creatures in which there is somehow a greater standing if you are friends with or even greater status if you marry one. The person in which started the topic is of the Asian race and has been the subject of many of these remarks just for simply being themselves.

    Asians are not in any way shape or form a superior race and do not deserve to be treated like a Lady Gaga or some rare animal.. In fact they are one of the most common race in the world. Never forget that race is a subjective term that may not even be accurate in a world where everyone is mixed.



  • Ark: Survival Evolved – Private Server

    Hello people that do not read my blog. I have an Ark Private server that my group uses. If you would like access, we have room for more people. It is a PvE server with no friendly fire. We do not PvP and try to focus on our own thing. It is kind of boring without people right now. If you have Ark or are put off trying the game because of the public server bad rep, just send me a message and I will get you hooked up!

  • Cities Skylines, Sim City’s proper replacement

    Cities Skylines is now out on Steam! Within hours of going live, the game already has an astounding 60,000 players in game, according to the Steam Community Hub. I have only been able to play lightly from a remote connection to my home computer but what I have seen thus far is quite amazing. The simulation is pretty well done and feels natural (albeit annoying when it comes to laying water lines but that’s what i love about these types of games). I really love the wind and water simulation that keeps it alive. At first it seems quite static but it quickly comes alive and you start to have fun just following people and cars around your town. There are a few bugs that are quite funny to see and do not affect gameplay from the limited time that I could play. One of them was watching a tractor-trailer basically jackknife into a building and then 180 down the road like it was some super truck with ball wheels instead of tires. Quite entertaining.



  • ArcheAge

    2014-09-24_10-54-26ArcheAge was a hidden Easter Egg for me. I knew little about the game until barely a month ago. I got sent a key from a friend to play in the Closed Beta. I played all of 1 hour in the Closed Beta and thought nothing special of the game. Then I decided to do a little research on the game and where It came from.

    I found out that ArcheAge was developed by a Korean based company (I love many Korean games such as Mabinogi and Tera) so that kind of perked me up a bit to look more. What I found was actually quite amazing.
