    • Combat Evolved Anniversary

      7 years ago

      ZZoMBiE13

      I remember when this one was announced. I thought to myself; I played Combat Evolved like it was my career. The Achievements in this one will be a gimme!

      Let me say with all sincerity, they are NOT a gimme. Sure, there are those that are not much challenge. The ones you get for clearing the levels, the one you get for grabbing skulls and terminals, the Chievo that requires you to nab the Banshee on AotCR. We all did that back in the day and with the new graphics it shockingly easy to get the Banshee now. But beating the Library without dying??? Make it thru 2 Betrayals without shooting Grunts?

      I gotta hand it to 343 for coming up with such interesting things to challenge the Halo fans with. I never would have expected the Anniversary achievements to actually be challenging to get and it is a pleasant surprise. I think Halo: CE is probably my favorite video game of all time, and I'm happy to have some interesting criteria to try and meet.

    • Regarding AHCS

      7 years ago

      ZZoMBiE13

      This question keeps coming up so I'm going to post this in hopes that it can answer some peoples questions in a more in depth manner.

      Since E3 and the announcement that Master Chief is going to be moving back into the limelight as Halo's front man, I've been getting several people who are justifiably curious if this means that AHCS will make a return. In my last comic, I menioned that since the Chief was my main character and he was no longer the main character of Halo what with ODST and Reach having different leads.

      Sadly, that was but one of a number of reasons that AHCS was retired. Not the least of which is that while entertaining to make, AHCS took up a huge amount of time. Time that I sadly no longer have to spare the way I did in '07 and '08.

      It's also worth noting, that there simply isn't a better place to end a Halo related comic than on number 117. It couldn't have lined up more perfect in my opinion. Even if the day came when I had the time, energy, and werewithall to take up another project like this one, I'd want to start up something new rather than treading on the AHCS legacy.

      A while back I was contracted by a few guys to make artwork for them. An NDA prevents me from saying any more than that, but this project takes up literally all the art time I have to spend and when project A is finished, project B will be starting up soon after.

      I truly hope this has helped shed some light on the situation for people who might be curious about this topic. I further hope that this didn't come off as pretentious or presumptuous. That was not my intent in any way. I simply wanted to try and offer fans of the old comic a little enlightenment on the situation.

      Thanks for taking the time to read this and thanks for your understanding.

      I've been doing some artwork for a small group of people over the last several months. While the primary project we're working on remains something I cannot talk about, we have been working on a side project and it's finally to a point where I can share it with those who might be interested.

      They've made a line of T-shirts and a website to show them off and sell them. Many of the shirts feature original artwork by yours truly as well as a few other artists. I think they turned out pretty cool and if you want to see them (and maybe buy one) here is a link to their website. smiley0.gif

      I've loved your work for a long time and your comics have had a large part in the inspiration for my own Halo artworks. smiley12.gif

        Sorry for the late reply. I haven't been checking in here at RT nearly enough over the last year or so. But I'm pleased you enjoyed them. Feel free to link me to your Deviant Art page. :)

      So, I just thought I should let you know I used to read AHCS 3-4 years ago (before I even played Halo or watched RvB), and I was very much in awe of your ability to draw.

      Today, after being a member of this site for a couple of years, Reddit reminded me about it, and I went back through your archive. It's so much funnier now I get most of the references.

      I miss AHCS, but I hope what you're doing these days is even more awesome.

      the only thing I wish they did for it was recreate how we used to play it.....split screen co-op and split screen multiplayer, to bring back the good ol days of lan partys and how you can cheat by looking at your buddies screen.

      also...you forgot Assassin's Creed Rev coming out....I just started playing that last week

      but hey if you ever want some help on some achievables, you know where to find me

      Sorry it took me so long to get back to you! School stuff. :(

    • QuackJAG

      7 years ago

      Ah, I see. I actually wouldn't mind being Mr. Greene at all. I like Frank better, but I've created QUITE the persona with Greene. I run around with him in a yellow and pale plaid suit, with green sunglasses, pink hair, and cow boy boots.

      Frank may be the MAN, but my Greene is completely AWESOME.

      So yeah, lets totally give it a shot man! Let me go ahead and download it, and perhaps we can give it a try sometime soon!

    • SpikePrime

      7 years ago

      You are one awsome dude, Zzombie. I've got to ask, considering that one of the main reasons that you stpped creating strips for AHCS was because Halo had mved on from the cheif, and we're now about to get four new games (Halo 4, its subseqient sequals and Halo: Anniversary), are you going to pick up on that where you left off? I mean, it's all about the cheif again!

    • Bleu_Ace

      7 years ago

      That's the issue, can't get Netflix anytime soon. We're kinda on budget at home for the time being.

    • QuackJAG

      7 years ago

      You have some freaky zombie instincts.

      While Dead Island is pretty fun, I can defiantly feel it losing its appeal already. I've already pretty much decided to trade it in and put that money forth into Gears 3.

      Point is: We still need to Dead Rising Co-Op at some point.

      Thanks! smiley0.gif You know, I actually really, really, really like the idea of the grafted tech. Very cyberpunk, which is a favored genre of mine. I imagine him more scarred up too. I gave him the scar over the lip, then realized I don't know how to paint scars...a few tutorials ought to take care of that. That's a piece that's going in my BFA entrance portfolio this fall and I keep tinkering with it. If you don't mind, I'd like to give those ideas a try.

      This is why I like to socialize with other artists - good critique and creative brainstorming. smiley0.gif

      Thank you for the favorites! I need to go favorite a few of yours. I'm particularly fond of John and Noble Six. smiley12.gif

      Thanks! There is some stuff I haven't seen. Damn, you're talented. It's pretty cool to see how an artist grows over time, too.

      Checked out the t-shirt art too. That's some good stuff. I want one!

      It'd only be fair to share my DA gallery. zero-one-three.deviantart.com/gallery/ Much of it is amateur school work, since I'm navigating the crazy waters of art school. But, in case you wanted to know what a female Brute looks like, or what Standoff would look like on acid, there you go. smiley0.gif Most of my works-in-progress end up on my journal here. I'm currently driving myself crazy with a concept piece from the novel Halo: Cryptum.

      I'm looking forward to seeing what you're working on when you can finally reveal it! smiley13.gif

      Yeah thats why I was asking. I want to get Dead Rising 2 but I have no friends who play it. So Coop is out of the question. Which is what I want to try. I played Dead Rising 1 so much I had gotten pretty much everything (except the survive 7 days in survival mode) But I'm wondering if I should wait for the Off The Record Edition?

    • Halochief89

      8 years ago

      Think I should get Dead Rising 2? I mean... with Off The Record edition coming soon and all. I'm very very interested since I loved the Original.

    • Bleu_Ace

      You bet I am! I've posted some of my more recent artwork too.

    • Bleu_Ace

      8 years ago

      I know what you're talking of now, maybe I can contact one of the customizers I've seen on DeviantART, they knew what they were doing.

      There was a comic shop around here before, the owners always called me Transformers Girl. However, they closed recently and were replaced with a hookah shop (which I find pretty stupid in the consideration). Thankfully there is a craft shop where I got my art supplies for the figurines. A guy who worked there has collected things since he was a kid in the 70's (star wars, etc.) and directed me to the supplies I needed.

      I used to play D&D back in high school with my old friends, one of them (who hosted the game every Sunday and was our GM) his father would collect the miniatures and the larger figures and paint them. He even had the giant dragon statues. My father also used some types of paint, but I haven't seen it sold in any stores around here.


      I plan on doing some RvB customs for myself. I thought it would be fun, especially since I've seen people do it before. I also plan on sprucing up some of the figurines I do have, plus paint a Transformers MC Axis Arcee statue replica I bought ages ago. I also paint some stuff on glassware, so I bought a gloss spray for that too.

      Thank you. So far I learned that acrylic paints would be best for plastic and action figures. I also bought some protective glaze for acrylics that also make it look glossy at the end. When you say primer do you mean a base coat before officially painting?

    • Bleu_Ace

      8 years ago

      That is great to hear!

      I'm doing fine, on summer break and trying to keep myself busy. I'm working on commissions and some customs. My latest journal shows what I'm up to.

      Hey, do you know what kind of paint will stay on and work well on Halo figurines?

      Well, right about now, I was originally planning to be announcing that tickets for RvB:TX were on sale. Unfortunately, that's not going to be the case. You might have heard that the RT staff has their own event planed for late May. We, the organizers of RvB:TX, don't feel it will be possible to compete with a larger and better organized event, so we're officially canceling our event.

      But all is not lost! We're keeping the group page for two reasons:

      1) RvB:TX will now be a hub for all RT fans in and around Texas. We'll keep people up to date on RT related events in and around Texas, from small meet ups to the RoosterTexas event the staff is planning. If you have not already done so, please watch the group to stay up to date on the news.

      2) We're planning a smaller get together in Austin this winter. It won't be as big as our original plans, but it'll still be a chance for fans to get together and have fun.

      For more details, please see the journal here.
