Let a console have an exclusive: Epic Mickey

I'm going to take you back in time for a moment. E3 2005, the first official unveiling of the Wiimote/Nunchuck controllers. Wow, what a watershed moment. When few were bashed for saying something as blasphemous as "Okay, you have my att...

 
 
 
 

Sacred Cow Slaughter: The Divine Comedy

From time to time, Press or Fans of something hold an object on such a high pedestal that any attempts to touch or share this sacred object with others becomes a punishable offense. These, ladies and gentlemen, are Sacred Cows. That's wh...

 
 
 

An update on what to expect from me.

Just giving a heads up on what I'm currently working on as well as future plans to post on this blog. Priority 1: Expect me to follow up my Art Academy First Semester review with, naturally, a review of the Second Semester. Hooray and Hu...

 
 
 

Art Academy Semester 1 review

I'll go ahead and admit this right now. I'm not a fan of DSiWare. I know it's the popular thing to say right now but in a lot of ways, even the games I enjoy most on it, I find myself making excuses. It's usually making excuses for it's...

 
 
 

Hey There, Lil Buddy! The Gimmick of Portable Expansion

Consider for a moment that there literally was a time when Sony, Nintendo, and Sega all played with the idea of portable expansions to their home console experiences. All three raced towards this money making gimmick with reckless abandon...

 
 
 

The Hard Sell of Wii Games

Here is my problem. A new Wii game comes out, looks promising, I start to get interested, it comes out, and I suddenly question the purchase. It's nothing against the Wii, really. It's just that damn price tag. $50 seems a tad expensiv...

 
 
 

CheapyD called me a fanboy? Gah, so confused.

Update: Was a big misunderstanding. Apparently people have posted stuff like that before and been serious. By christ, that saddens me. Oh well, Cheapy responded. No hurt feelings all around. As a big fan of CAG (although admittedly I'...

 
 
 
 

A new 3D art style, I hope

One of the things that annoys me about comic book games is nobody is trying to replicate comic books unique art style. I take this back, of course, to the era before quick and dirty photoshop colors. Before digital inking. I'm talking co...

 
 
 

I Suck At Games: Developing A Pattern

We all want to create games. It's a sickness in our kind. "Oh look, I could create a Life Force (Salamander, for the weeabo bastards who stand ready to correct me)." In all honesty, the tools to do so have not, in fact, been better. S...

 
 
 

God of War Drawing Video

I decided maybe someone amongs this community would find this interesting. I did this a while ago. So far, the feedback has been minimal. But if some people here show interest, I will definately do another one, this time of Earthworm Jim...

 
 

About sheppyone of us since 7:01 AM on 09.16.2008

I suppose since one of my stories has been promoted, I'm on the spot to get off my lazy ass and describe myself. I'm a 3D modeler working on Flight Simulators by day, a doodlin nerd by night. I try to remain without system biases but let's face it, no one can do that. I do want to apologize for some of my terrible grammar. I'm hoping to correct this issue as time goes on. I want to get better.

As to which games games I'm into, which ones am I not into is a more apt question. I'm a collector with a fairly massive collection. And, maybe as time rolls on, I'll fill more of this out.
