      Man, it's been a while.

      8 months ago

      Hello to everyone who is here, if you still are here lol

      A lot has happened since my last posting, which wasn't about me. (What!? People can do that!?) Some good, some bad, some indifferent. But currently, life is headed my way, but I still am just not to terribly happy about it. And it's an easy fix too.

      Currently, I am working 2 jobs, and making money. I am happy that I have money but I am not doing the work I really want and that bothers me. A lot.

      For now, I just need to find time to practice my drawing and work on a new project that I want to work on solo, and a new project that I have in a group to work on. I'm really excited to see where those go.

      Anyways, if you actually read all this, just know I miss every single one of my friends on RT and I hope to talk to y'all and possible even go to RTX and touch all your faces, and possibly butts. smiley12.gif

      Rooster Teeth Game Production?

      1 year ago

      Lately I have been thinking to myself. "Man, I love RT and AH so much, but I wish that there was just some more that they could do." And in the midst of my thinking and sitting in my Game Production class I came to thinking.

      WHAT IF ROOSTER TEETH MADE A VIDEO GAME!?

      This thought occurred to me as I was thinking about other topics and stuff, while also watching a recent Things to do in:. They have virtually every thing they need to make a game, minus one entity but I will go over everything in a moments time.

      The only problem with this is that to my knowledge no one in the company has any experience with making video games or even the knowledge to make a game, at least production wise. Now, if by some miracle, they happen to get and/or have some one who has knowledge on how to make games or hires someone who does, ahem *clears throat* nudge nudge wink wink I think they have the potential to make something, and here is why:

      THEY HAVE ALL (almost) THE NECESSARY PEOPLE TO MAKE A GAME!

      Producers:
      While they have no knowledge as to how to run game companies, they have the potential to lead a team and get shit going. While the producer on the project isn't only about yelling at people, they have to be very organized and be able to keep track of assignments, numbers, and work spreadsheets and tables fairly easy, which I think the higher ups at RT can do fairly simply.

      Artist
      Not only do we have the fine art work and animations of the one and only Monty Oum,but they have a large number of staff members that are artist and animators. The only difference between game art and video art is the resolution that all the models and textures that are made at to allocate for a faster gaming experience. This isn't a hard feat to do. While I was taught how to do game resolution and low poly modeling, it is easy to switch to high poly and movie resolution modeling. This was the part that I think the company would have no problem with.

      Designers
      While this maybe a long stretch, but I believe that the people of Achievement Hunter, could be potential designers for the game of which they concept. Granted, yes, they do not know the core mechanics of using an engine such as Unity or UDK, however, I think with just a little time and effort, they could easily learn how to put prefabs from the Unity library into the scene they have created. Now, the only issue that they will be have, depending on what game they are looking to create, is a systems designer. One that crunches all the numbers and makes them work and can be balanced. This is a terribly hard job to have and consist of number crunching and making formulas. Other than that, being the people who play games all day every day, I think they would have a fairly creative mind, enough to create excellent levels and excellent story ideas.

      Programmers (and the main issue)
      I have no idea where RT stands on programmers and there knowledge on what language they know and how far they can go with it, but I feel like if this is a problem, free lancing programmers, or teaching them basic knowledge of C# and C++ would lead them to a far off land of game programming and tons of fun.

      So, with that I conclude that while they currently don't have everything it takes to make a game, I think they are at least 75% ready to make a game. So, be looking out for an RVB game coming to you summer of 2015!

      Social Media why?

      1 year ago

      So it seems like my only safe haven in social media is Rooster Teeth, though it has been a while and my first post in months is going to be me complaining. I can't help but just fucking seem someone and either have immediate die hard feelings for them, or kind of shun them off, and that is why I think I hate myself the most.

      Of course, no one I currently have feelings for follows me on here or anything so I am happy about that. I just need to sit down, take a deep breather, and fucking finish college so I can be an independent black woman who don't need no man.

      I'll be taking more casual trips to the RT site, because I have missed this place so much. I'll talk to y'all sooner than later. smiley13.gifsmiley13.gif

      2 years ago

      I notice that this journal thing didn't really work well for me. I should have had like 30 or so journals, and yet i probably have a total of 6, 8 or 9 if you include the drawings that I did. But i forgot my sketch book at home... UGH! This is the last day for the class, I don't have a laptop charger to do any of my work on while at home, and I may have failed... I can't fail.. I need this class to succeed...

      List of things to do after!

      in Forums > List of things to do after! | Follow this topic

      Title says it all! Let's keep it to a few rules yeah?

      Rules!:
      1.) WE HAVE PEOPLE UNDER 21! So if the Adults want to do something, adultish, then let's make sure that the little ones can get involved.
      2.) MONEY MAY BE AN ISSUE FOR SOME! So if we can let's keep it cheap!
      3.) WE HAVE TRANSPORTATION! So don't think that distance is going to be an issue because "We'll have to take multiple trips". We have about 4 or 5 drivers and maybe more, don't complain if we have to drive for a bit.
      4.) NO I AM NOT AN ADMIN! So if you dislike these rules message me and let me know!

      That is all, let the conversations begin!

      I'm so far behind on my postings that this will affect my grade indefinitely. I'm just sitting here watching D Gray Man, an excellent anime which is sucking with English actors. But whatever right, anime is awesome so I am going to deal.

      Anyways, I have had little to no sleep this weekend. I finished my Research paper at 3 am, and I just can't sleep. I also have to work on my Art homework BECAUSE ART IS THE GREATEST! Anyways thats really it, i'll catch y'all later.

      So for this journal we have to write about something we did over break...

I procrastinated really badly and I am behind on my work in a class that is the worst, and a class which is bad, but I need it. only have 30 seconds left because I was late for class... again. So new journal I am hoping to come soonish.

      Journal #3

      2 years ago

      So I am sorry about the lack of post on Sunday night but I made up for it on Monday... Kind of. ANYWAYS, I just have so much to say and only 20 minutes to say it so lets spray it right?

      So first of, everything is going okee dokee awesome at school. My teachers are really awesome and I am learning a lot, however... There is only one class that I just can't pay attention it. That would be Critical Game Studies. A class where we basically discect the components of games and write papers and take quizzes and such. Not a boring class in the least, however, I just find myself always in the, "BLEGH!" mood when I am in the class.

      My second order of business, is one of my teachers came up to me in the middle of class, (and when I say came up to me, it was more like we just said it out loud and he was 2 tables away.) and he said, "You always seem to brighten up the day, Curtis.". Now, under no circumstance am I saying this is the worst thing I have ever been told, but it made me think. Now let me go back in time and tell you something about our relationship last semester.

      My teacher is a Producer in the gaming industry, working on titles such as F.E.A.R. 3 and Fight Night Round 3. He is a big guy and he is a character. He is always swearing and making jokes, so I thought, 'hey... I'll be the class clown.' Now inner me made a good decision. He loved me, I would make good remarks at the right time and brighten the mood in the room. He would say something, I would make a comment, laughter ensues.

      Now, if you ever had a teacher you admire so much, say, "You seem to brighten up the day," to you, you know my feelings. This is the second teacher that I have had that said this to me, but I still think had about it. I say, you always have to have that one thing that brightens up your's, or anyone else's day. We all deserve to be happy right? So, why not try to make someone happy by saying something funny or what not? I have to move on other wise I could be on this all day.

      My next thing to talk about is my mom. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I am a momma's boy. But I had to talk to her about something that was bothering me, for some unknown reason. But she told me to follow my dream, and do what I need to, to make sure that it is followed. This woman knows what to say, at the right time. I was having doubts about whether I should follow my dream, but she knows what to say, and she said it right.

      I finally hung up this painting that I got from my good friend. It's hanging on the wall to show the world, and I love it. Which reminds me, I have so much I need to buy if I want to have an AMAZING SUPER COOL RETRO apartment when I move to Austin. There is a comic book shop by my school that has some cool stuff, but I need to look so I know what to save and buy for the place.

      A lot is happening guys, and I am not worried or stressed in the least bit, because everything that is happening, could make me more happy.

      Also, tiny side not for the last few minutes. NEW HIGHPAK VIDEO'S will be coming soon, and not in the old ways I did them. I just need to buy the stuff I need, and BOOM! I am set. Anyways, I need to get off and go to bed. Good night my lovely's, and sweet dreams.
