For my first content update since the blog came back online, I figured I’d share a personal story that has helped shape my future. DigiPen has what they call Company Days, where guests who work in the video game industry visit our school and give a lecture on any topic they feel is relevant. Sometime around late October or early November of 2011, Chris Taylor came and gave a talk. I was a bit surprised as I walked into the room.
During my relax time over Summer break, I’ve gotten myself into reading some comics. I know I’m starting a bit late in my life, but hey, I’ve got a number of years left to see what the comic book world throws at me. Anyhow, I’ve picked up three comic book volumes: Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Man Noir: Eyes Without A Face, and Kick-Ass. For an intro into comics, this was definitely a good start and I HIGHLY recommend all three of these volumes.
A year back my brother and a small group of friend went out and bought some Star Wars RPG books. We had a few sessions and enjoyed it greatly. Unfortunately real life got in the way and we haven’t played in a while. This is an attempt at reviving our play times and sharing some of what I’ve written with people. Aside from here I also usually post my adventures on the official Star Wars RPG forums.
This post is more out of interest than anything else. I’ve heard some interesting stories about how people get their screen names ranging from naming themselves after their favorite book/game/movie characters to smashing their head against the keyboard and getting a random string of characters. Before I got the screen name I have now, I just used whatever show/game/book/etc. I was currently enjoying at the time. However, during the days of my young impressionable mind, I saw this movie called The Mighty Ducks.
