  1. Netflix

    Just looked past the last few pages and I'd kind of forgotten that Netflix isn't just for watching bad Nic Cage films.
  2. 3D Modelling Thread

    Dan, your progress is great; keep it up!
  3. good stuff thread.

    I was just finishing up Luigi's Mansion and about to buy Super ario 3D Land; and then it became free for registering your 3DS! Glad I didn't register it yet.
  4. Hey man, yeah I've been picking it up just recently. Super noobish though still! Hoping to spend some proper time with it tomorrow actually...

  5. Awesome stuff thread

    Fucking Americans...
  6. Yo.

     

    So do you use Unity then? As I mentioned, trying to learn it myself right now. Slowly but surely...

  7. The Great Big Job Hunt Thread

    I spend all day on all fours (calm down) to prop up the a map artist's desk. And yeah I moved to sunny old Edinburgh for this job. Moving about in the games industry is super common - and also fun! Cause it means people like me can escape the farmlands of Lincolnshire.

  9. The Great Big Job Hunt Thread

    I've been slowly putting together a Google Map of game devs. UK is pretty packed - but I've been avoiding start-ups and mobile stuff really. But anyway you might find it helpful. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/ms?msid=205433213486745599629.0004d6f9c6ac8957a5971&msa=0&ll=53.514185,-2.460937&spn=11.341079,28.54248 Man some of these job searches sound awful. I don't know how people keep sane given the amount of stuff happening/for how long. Mine was fairly simple. Finished uni June/July last year (seems much longer than that :P) and then focused on my folio for about 2 months - then applied for all the larger/console studios in the UK. Within a month I got an interview at Rockstar North and, just over a year ago, started there as a map support artist. Was fairly simple and makes me feel super lucky/guilty at the same time! If you feel out of touch with some of this stuff but want to get back in - while having something to show for it folio wise - then why not try out Unity? Fantastic for mocking up something simple and showing you can code competently in C# or Java. Just take a puzzle game like Devil Dice and re-make it in Unity. 3dmotive have some great Unity training going on over at udemy for only $5 each!
  10. good stuff thread.

    Such a cute pup! That made my day. Well today is my last day off from work. After V shipped I got given 2 weeks of comp time. This is in the GOOD thread though because although it's ending it was a really relaxing and I'm looking forward to going back to work and getting into stuff.
  11. Your Last Game

    PC. I hear the updates/patches are coming out super slow on consoles.
  12. Your Last Game

    Yay! Thomas Was Alone is all kinds of fantastic! I'm just going to say Payday 2 - even though I've not 'completed' it. It's amaaazing. Ticks all the boxes I want ticking.
  13. Eurogamer Expo

    If anyone is about and they see Dream; could they find Sam (who should be standing next to it if he's doing his job properly) and tell him he owes me money please? Thanks.
  14. good stuff thread.

    We love you too.
