This Post Is Not About Lego

So, I'm finally getting off my butt and working on a game. Side note: Yes, the LDraw renderer is still in the works, but it's been beating me down lately, so it's going on a further back burner for a while.

Some info: it will be using Boxmen as the characters...for which I now have some good base meshes. (Stay tuned for more on Boxmen in a later post). The title of the game? "Boxmen: A Low-Poly Adventure." Genre? JRPG. The fact that I'm actually excited about it, and want to work on it after work means that I'll actually finish this project...even if it takes the next X months (X being any number larger than 3 >.>).

So that's all for now, back to texturing the lead character!

Of Simpler Times and Giant Robots

So, a new thread over at the hangar has proved rather interesting. User darksyntax has taken the C6 system and recreated two of the iconic MF0 frames, the Chub and Commisar. Seriously check it out!

I'll go on a bit to say that this thread, and the C6 system in general, is of particular interest to me as I have effectively forsworn all video game and Lego purchases for the rest of the year (Gasp!). Combine that with the fact that I've decided that my two latest XVM-17 frames are staying put together, and you get me looking for ways to build more with less. (Seriously, the XVM-17's are massively clip intensive.)

Here's the gallery for the C6 system. I'd show some images, but Micah's photos are not set up to let me do that.

So, for some eyecandy >.>

A Placeholder

As I have a proposal to be submitted Monday, I really don't have a whole lot to say today. Hopefully I'll come up with something useful this weekend ;)

That being said, I'm feeling a bit depressed as I realize that I probably won't be able to purchase a PS4 (due to life, and not being able to get health insurance through work), and with my lack of an XBox Live Gold subscription, I probably won't be able to play Bungie's Destiny when it comes out :( (As it's coming out on XBox 360, PS3, and PS4 at least)
