a testament of sherlock’s turds

On 27, Apr 2013 | No Comments | In games, rants | By petrostudio

As I’ve mentioned before, I subscribe to Gamefly, which is essentially Netflix for games. I usually add games to my queue that I would not buy myself, or that didn’t strike me at first, but upon reading reviews, look interesting. I do, often times, find some gems along the way.

This is not one of them.

light it up blue

On 02, Apr 2013 | No Comments | In autism, thoughts | By petrostudio

Light it up blue tomorrow (and all of April, if you can), for autism awareness.

I know, there are a million causes screaming for your attention. And there are many very, very serious ones. My own family has been touched by heart disease, diabetes and the big “C”, cancer.

Travelling for business seems like a win-win. You get to see new places and experience new food and customs, meet new people and take in a culture you don’t normally get to, right?

In reality, everywhere you go is tailored to business travelers, everyone you meet probably flew in as well, and everything you see can be carried in a bag in the first place.

the state of the story

On 02, Oct 2012 | No Comments | In games, thoughts | By petrostudio

A lot of ballyhoo (that’s right, I said it) has been made about whether or not Blizzard Entertainment, and a lot of game makers, actually, are hitting or missing with their current crop of games. Since we are in a Cycle of Sequels (my Journey cover band in high school) the comparison is constantly made to the past of game development and little to do with the current state of the industry.

what is graphic des… what the WHAT?

On 05, Sep 2012 | One Comment | In design, rants | By petrostudio

I started this post with a simple question: what is graphic design? I get asked that question a lot, and I thought I would explore the subject.

But when I started looking for imagery and articles about it, I came across something that really made me angry – people ripping off material on just that subject.

mists

On 16, Aug 2012 | No Comments | In film, games | By petrostudio

So, the latest cinematic trailer for the latest World of Warcraft expansion has been premiered at Gamescom in Cologne. These cinematics are some of the best CG ever created, from the original through three expansions to the last, Cataclysm. Mists of Pandaria looks to be an interesting game, but it has spawned what seems to be the best of the cinematic trailers.

double dead darkness

On 05, Aug 2012 | No Comments | In games | By petrostudio

I’m a Gamefly member. It’s a good service, though at times I find myself holding onto a game for so long it actually costs me more in membership fees than to buy it outright.

I typically buy the really top level games that I know I will want, reserving the “lesser” titles I’m interested in to Gamefly. Sometimes, you stumble upon something that is really worthwhile. This is not one of those times.

heavy rain

On 12, Jun 2012 | No Comments | In games | By petrostudio

It’s rare to find a video game that is actually moving. Hell, it’s next to impossible. Even those touting “choice” and “morality“, in the end, just come up short 99% of the time. It’s not often you even find a movie that really touches you anymore.

Let me introduce you to Heavy Rain.

Was thinking of driving rants and stumbled on one from 2008 in a very old blog of mine.

the push

On 27, Apr 2012 | No Comments | In design, thoughts | By petrostudio

I remember telling a colleague of mine, about a year ago, just what my life’s snapshot looks like, in terms of work, family and studies. At the time, I was working on restoring our house and also teaching part-time, as well, so the duties were even a bit more expanded than today.

Regardless, I feel, sometimes, like an insane person.
