User Experience/User Interface Designer.
Does a lot of Web Development.
Graduated from 4 Year University with Degree in Software Engineering.
Enjoys SciFi and non-fiction books on the mysteries of the universe. Also: Calvin & Hobbes. All of them.
Plays A LOT of video games (no sports or racing games though!).
Worships the Fallout franchise. Well...ok, I don't worship, but I really do like the Fallout games....
Uncharted has been cool up until #3 (Jeez Amy Hennig, since when is it good game design to stick me in an area with enemies that spawn from every which angle with infinite grenades in their dang pockets!?!) *Takes deep breaths while counting to ten.
Thinks Diablo III is better than Diablo II.
I probably lost all respect and friends for that last statement....
Wants to eventually transition into a UX Design job in the Gaming Industry.
Profile Picture is about 3-4 years old, but I like it. It's me at Epic Games, getting to hang out with all the awesome game devs who were working on GoW3 at the time.
My profile name means nothing. I thought of it on the fly, and it looked silly enough to work. I regret the all caps though. Sorry!
I sometimes wonder why I plopped all the $$$$$$ for the next-gen consoles, when all the awesome games are gonna be on my PC.
Man I’m so hyped for Starbound right now, lol. I can’t wait!
Innovation, hampered by idiots.
So what did Bungie hire him on as?
Edit: Associate Designer. That’s pretty awesome, actually. Grats!
Red Dead Redemption Sequel, where art thou~!?
I respectfully disagree with the author’s opinion. I didn’t wait, and I’ve had a great time.
I’m quite happy with my Xbone and PS4. PS4 let’s me share clips and pics of Killzone 4 to my friends on Facebook. My Xbox One has been a great place for me to chat with my Skype friends while smashing up thousands of zombies in Dead Rising 3.
Each person has a different view of it. I totally agree that some people will be more comfortable waiting for a title they want to play or waiting for a price drop (dropping about $1000 does hurt a little). For me however, I’ve been happy with my decision.
So far, none of the “exclusive” content announced (PS4’s lo-res MGS Snake) is going to deny you the “complete experience” of MGS5 if you don’t buy for that console – for the PS4, the lo-res snake model is nothing more than an optional aesthetic appearance.
You guys need to chill out. I don’t like console/platform specific exclusives either, but it’s not like they’re denying you the full Metal Gear Solid 5 experience with these things. It’s a novelty item, jeez.
Awwwwww man, I want in.
They did an awesome job on this, and so I have no qualms about paying for it. Fantastic job Black Mesa team!
I gave Chris Roberts a lot of my money because I trust him to put it to good use – not to the whims of every over-entitled fanboy backer out there.
He said he’s making the ultimate space sim pc game – he’s gonna make the ultimate space sim pc game. If he can bring the space sim genre to other platforms, than who am I to stop him, and really, why would I want to stop him?
I’d be thrilled if my money could help reach the console audience, among others. That’s something to be proud of – not concerned about.
Man, I really liked the long cutscenes. :(
I guess at this point, I could launch into a tirade on how I believe Kojima is stripping out everything that’s made the Metal Gear Solid franchise so unique, but instead, I’ll keep my mouth shut and let the man work his magic. He hasn’t let me down yet over the long course of this franchise, so I’ll trust Kojima to deliver.
Yeah, I usually just go back to Uncharted 2, where the stuff was still there, but not to such an alarming degree as it was in U3.
That, and I am a sucker for games with mountainous terrain. Naughty Dog’s take on the Himalayan mountains and Sherpa towns was extremely well done.
So now Destiny Beta on PS4 first, Uncharted 4 being teased, and a teaser site for something in the Fallout franchise has appeared tonight as well?!?
I’m gonna have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!
Let’s just hope this sequel doesn’t feature enemies spawning from every corner of the level, packing infinite grenades in their pockets and bionic arms, capable of throwing said grenades right at your damn feet.
I pooped myself. Too hyped tonight, with Fallout 4 and now Uncharted 4 being teased.
