So I have finally finished University and I have pretty much decided to not do the last optional year. I say ‘pretty much’ because there is still some ounce of a chance that I might decide to do it, but its very unlikely. I’m a free man with a job interview at apple on Tuesday 21st June 2011.

Yay. =]

An interview finally and its not at some boring ass clothing retail store. Fingers crossed and prayers are in session.

I have written out the first episode of a series codenamed “Stuck in the Bits”. Its a video game parody series that I plan to be hosting on thebitbag. I’m glad I now have the time to get started on it, now that uni has finished, but I am feeling this odd sense of damp motivation. I’ve drawn out the two main characters but have not colored them in yet. It’s a start, which is good. However, I had to force myself to get the drawings done. The natural urge wasn’t there. This is quite worrying. I had the urge to design characters during the times I should have been prioritising my university project, yet the moment I am legitimately free to do stuff, I am struggling to get off my ass and do it. Hmmmm… interesting.

I am not feeling that boost that I imagined I would be feeling as soon as the project was handed in and the curtains in my life as an animation student were closed. Is something missing? It feels like something is missing. Something has to be missing…

I wonder what it is.

Back in the old days, long before Apple had an iron grip on the hardware industry, lining people up like lemmings to buy the latest gadget as if it cured lung cancer. Before Blizzard had enough funds to buy the whole of Korea. Before any type of fanboy plagued the earth we walk on. Prior to all this, games and their genres were much more straight forward than they are now. In Mario games you jumped on anthropomorphic crackhead mushrooms. Platformer. Your co-driver screamed “Long easy left!” at you in Sega Rally. Racer. Bison trolled all of us as the last boss in Street Fighter II. Beat’em up. In todays world, we are seeing many borrowings from different genres to help amplify the strengths of that particular game or to make completely new genres even. At the peak of this subject is the Role playing games. (more…)
