Important Metal Gear question: Otacon can’t cook, but Snake doesn’t seem too keen on it either. What did he eat during al those years by himself in Alaska? Andrea votes for raw salmon like a bear, I suspect delivery pizza.
Andrea’s plans for world peace in Metal Gear Solid 4 so far seem to consist in putting the whole battlefield to sleep.
It kind of works.
So, what do a bunch of colourful 3D printed charms have to do with my more usual sewing projects? For any fans of Cyan Worlds’ Myst games out there, especially those who love Riven, these will be instantly recognisable I think. Huge digression coming up…
Myst and then Riven were what seriously got me into computer gaming, from there I got into console gaming too. And that’s where my interest for hand embroidery first started, although the particular game that really put me on that path was thatgamecompany’s Journey on the PS3 in 2012 (I hand-sewed and painted my own white robe scarf).
I love sewing. I love gaming. And along with many other people I see no reason why loving those things has to be a mutually exclusive deal.
Creating fan art is a great way of showing how much you appreciate what a whole lot of talented and remarkable people create as games. Through Tumblr I’ve seen a lot of textile artists, and artists in other media, work with their interpretations of game themes, characters, symbols, etc., So, if anyone reading this has been thinking; “Oh I’d love to do a crochet Moomba from Final Fantasy VIII!”, then I say; Go for it. Find a way to make what you love.
Back to the Sunner, Ytram, fish, beetle (did those have canon Rivenese names. I forgot if so) and Wahrk. These little charms are prototypes for using on a Riven/D’ni mash-up cosplay I’m making. It’s going to be some time before it’s finished (probably 2015 at this rate), but I’m super happy with how these are working out so far.
I want to give a shout out to my good friend JP who worked in Blender to modify these models for 3D printing, based on the 2D images and Illustrator files I made from the original game.
…I’d like to know how and why a 2013 post about Cosmic Osmo’s credits got 87 notes in the last couple of days, but the fact pleases me. Aren’t they just the cutest credits for the cutest game?
laughingpinecone said: Entirely deserved burn in tags, A+. Some FE horses look like those ancient paintings of tigers made by people who had never seen a tiger in their life. Weird… quadrupedal… things.
Horses…in FE9….run…like…ostrichs. The animations of those things scared me more than many horror games I’ve played o_o
yeah, indeed, they look like someone who’s never seen a horse based them on the description of “tall dachshunds with many spherical knees and a angry face. oh and they something fall from they sky or change color if you upgrade your job”
Yeah I kiss snakes. I’ll kiss any snake. Give me that python. I’ll kiss the shit out of it. I don’t give a fuck.
People are giving Wilson money to thank him for killing an unarmed black teenager. Please report this to GoFundMe, as it violates their Terms of Service and they get 5% of the tens of thousands of dollars being donated. Click to report.
This is my message, in case you want to copy and paste:
Your Terms of Service prohibit “items that promote… hate, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime.” Take a look at the comments that come with the donations on this page and tell me that doesn’t violate your terms. “Support Officer Wilson” is a thin veil for people rewarding Wilson for killing a black kid.
Vagrant Story doujinshi I did last year. It was supposed to be for a Japanese anthology but the circle leader got sick, last I heard, and I have no idea when the print book’ll be out. Anyway, here it is in English.
