      I'm hosting a live Q&A about "Hull" and during this Q&A I have a few announcements lined up, as well as discussion in regards to the MAKE YOUR OWN HULL contest! Stop by if you want! Clicky clicky.

      Thanks to all who showed up! It was great!

    • Want a Good Watch?

      James

      No, not the thing you wear on your wrist.

      Benedict Cumberbatch, Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue recently took part in a Q&A for the Masterpiece Sherlock Series 2 event in NYC. The Q&A is extremely enjoyable to watch, whether you're a Sherlock fan, Cumberbatch fan, Moffat fan, or just a person who enjoys hearing about some of the things that go into production that you don't know just by watching. It's in low-res and split into 4 parts, but it's still very good and definitely worth the watch.

      Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4.

    • Today's A Special Day

      And it's a special day because one of my best friends here on this site is celebrating his birthday today!

      Newbs and I only really met each other last June, and even then it was through TeamSpeak, but since, he's become like a brother for me. This is the dude I can laugh with about anything, the guy I can rely on through thick and thin. You've gone through a lot as of late, man, but you've kept your head up, just a testimony to how strong you are, and why you're an inspiration to me.

      Keep on keepin' on, bro. Happy birthday.

    • Article I Wrote

      7 years ago

      James

      So I'm enrolled in an English Composition class that is aimed at having us write opinion editorial articles. Our first one was classified as an "argument of fact aimed at either enforcing or refuting some form of established knowledge."

      Being the individual I am, I chose to refute the studies saying that video games influence violence in individuals.

      The essay is too long to post here, but if you follow this nifty link, you will be taken to it! Hope you enjoy and please leave me some feedback, I really appreciate comments and whatnot.

    • The Faraway Future

      7 years ago

      James

      Can you imagine a time when we, the people of today, the past 100 years, and the next 100 years, will be the central settings to generations of folklore and mythology? Where our descendants will look back on us and think, "They drove cars? They shot guns? Their strongest weapon at the time was the nuclear bomb?"

      It's kinda interesting, when you think about it. Our world, our way of life, being nothing more than stories and legends with creative twists and mystical turns. Where the celebrities of today will be the forgotten names of the past, and the only people who will live on will be those who changed the world.

      Just some food for thought.

    • MAKE YOUR OWN HULL Contest IS ENDING SOO

      7 years ago

      James

      -N!

      For those who don't remember, I started a contest to see what people could make for my "MAKE YOUR OWN HULL" contest. Rules are explained below:

      MAKE YOUR OWN HULL

      Essentially what this contest is, is my way of opening the Hull gates to the readers. This contest has a very simple submission: you make something that has to do with Sheridan Hull, or John Walker, or any character, scene, whatever from my writing series, "Hull," and submit it. It can be a drawing, a painting, a short video, a short story, a song, whatever! As long as it is your representation of the series, it passes. If you have a submission, please message me here on Rooster Teeth. There's no set end date on this, so you have time to work on.

      Now, no contest would be complete without a prize, right? The winners will be decided by a random panel of people I know, and this is what you stand to win. The 3rd place winner will receive a...

      GameStop_GC10_0.jpg

      $10 GameStop Gift Card!

      The 2nd place winner will receive a...

      GameStop_GC25_0.jpg

      $25 GameStop Gift Card!

      And now, the pièce de résistance. The 1st place winner will receive a free copy of...

      Mass-Effect-3-Xbox-360-Box-Art_0-650x650

      Mass Effect 3! Oh snaps!

      So spread the word and get your submissions in! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!


      This contest will officially end on May 1st, 2012. All entries must be sent to the following email: shhull87@gmail.com. I cannot wait to see all of your artistic abilities put to the test for this! Love you all!

      Oh yeah? I'll definitely have to talk to you when planning that to figure out the best route. I have family up in Washington, so that's why I want to head up there and then Seattle and Portland are two of my favorite cities...based on pictures and descriptions. I'd like to see them firsthand :P

      I think my FB status does this justice;

      So, you win 5 championships in a row, and now you're cheating and your sport is rigged? Well sorry about that, John Force from Funny Cars, New York Yankees from baseball, Montreal Canadiens from hockey, Micheal Schumacher from Indy Cars, and now Jimmie Johnson from NASCAR.

      I guess you guys should be less dominant. God ...forbid you're actually better than everyone else.

      Its cool, I'm in between avatars at the moment anyway. Waiting on details from everyone.

      Which means I need details for you as well.

      What do you want to be holding? (if anything)

      What clothes? (Anything Special)

      A current picture or something to work from. (For hairstyle, details and such)

      Any special request? (Within reason please.)

      The reach achievements aren't incredibly hard, but they still have a challenge. Definetly do-able, not like world at war where they spawn grenades. Instead, the AI just gets smarter while your teammates get dumber. Requires you to think more.

      I really can't thank you enough for taking the time to write such a nice message. It brings me motivation, satisfaction and happiness that you can't imagine. Finishing the CD has been a bit of a challenge due to some sad recent family events, but nice notes like this have been helpful beyond measure.

      I also have to point out one neat coincidence: your little title thing there reads "SlurpingMeta". In the scene where Tex fights Wash and Meta, Wash reveals the stabbing part of the memory unit. I actually created a SFX for this with my voice, and the track was called "Slurp" (basically the sound I made, then did a bunch of processing to it). In the video, RT added another SFX over it, so it's not quite so prominent. On the soundtrack version it will be quite evident. smiley0.gif

      Thanks again James. CD release: soon---as soon as it's so epic it shatters the studio walls and busts out!!!! (That should be soon!)

      Yeah, I've been in the habit since i was a kid and now i don't let people ride with me unless they buckle up. partly because I've seen videos of unbuckled crash dummies flying around and slamming into buckled ones in tests but mostly because I just feel uncomfortable with having them in seats without seatbelts.

    • rane0

      9 years ago

      But do you wear a seatbelt? Otherwise it's all in vain. But it'd make quite the picture.

      How about if your file share was banned in Halo 3 and they never told you why? Especially when all you had were screenshots taken of three mongooses?

    • b51

      9 years ago

      Haha yes sir, but there's no harm in reinforcing a good point. Trying to learn Fallout 3's GECK but I've kinda fallen off the bandwagon there...too much other shit going on. I'm hoping that if nothing else I can make some crazy levels in Forge in Reach to show some of my level design capabilities and then I'm sure I'll find other games with editors that allow me to show off my other capabilities. And then of course as I learn throughout college I'll hopefully be able to build a portfolio of stuff NOT using existing game engines lol.

    • b51

      9 years ago

      mm, good call. A guy from Bethesda actually quoted a book he wants me to read and it was very similar to that. "To be a game designer, all you have to do is say the magic words 'I am a game designer' and then, you know...make some games"

      Very good advice indeed: keeps people from limiting themselves.

    • b51

      9 years ago

      Oh absolutely, but I figure the degree in Child Development will help me understand why some things work and some things don't. You learn from experience and then you apply your knowledge to that experience to help you determine what may be best in what situations, you know?

      And that's awesome! Not as many people that want to be authors as there are that want to be game developers though so being in contact is slightly less helpful. They gave me advice and set me on the right path, but they're not gonna remember a word of our conversation nor will they be putting in any recommendations for me like your author buddies have. I'm gonna have to find my own way to set myself apart from the crowd it seems.

    • b51

      9 years ago

      Heh, while my profession of choice is Game Design, there isn't a widely accepted Game Development degree so the guys at Bethesda told me to major in anything I want to use as a backup plan and then focus on building my portfolio for game design. So my major of choice is Child Development. If I can't get into game development, I can teach really young kids without a teaching degree...or I can take a few extra classes when that time comes and actually become a teacher.

      If nothing else, my number one goal in life is to start a family, so having a degree in Child Development certainly couldn't hurt with that whole parenting thing right?

    • b51
