The Lonely Pathby techgnotic/of depthRADIUSThe Lonely Path2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
I always thought Thoreau’s comment was simply a word game— ultimately not of much value and false at its core. A Valentines Day in solitude should mean being all alone and alone means being unhappy, pure and simple. Still, it will turn out in life that the most alone we can feel is ironically in the crush of family and friends and even in the embrace of one’s Valentines Day companion— but lost and unfulfilled in one’s dreams and visions.

The testimony of Damon Baird in Gears of War: Judgment
Taken from joystiq.com: http://www.joystiq.com/2012/06/13/the-testimony-of-damon-baird-in-gears-of-war-judgment/
Memory is a fickle thing. You may think one thing, but the reality of the situation in question could be entirely different. Was that thing there? What even was that thing?
In Gears of War Judgment, Lt. Damon Baird is on trial for disobeying COG orders – being a military outfit, they're kind of big on following orders – and must recall the events that lead up to the disobedience in question. His recounting of the events while on trial is the entire campaign, but this being a military trial, certain things are classified. It's an idea that will play out in the campaign: the first time through, certain elements from the game environment

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

It's finally over...
The wretched and tyrannical warchief Garrosh Hellscream; has been captured and will be trialed for his war crimes. For all the murders. For all the betrayals. Justice will be served for all, and for my mother and father. But yet, some endings don't always end "happily". Two tragedies have happened over this year and therefore, there are some people who couldn't share in this great victory with me... Tragedies that will haunt my memories for as long as I live...
The first tragedy occurred late last year that still affects me today...: The death of my beloved adopted sister, Jenya Mornment. Ah Jenya... She truly was an amazing woman. Sure she was a Death Knight, but her heart was as strong as a Paladin's. I never really did doubt or judge her homosexuality, I did really enjoy being with her as much as I do with Mari and the twins. One day, she was sent away by the 7th Legion, a group of Alliance soldiers who help figh

This day DID NOT get any better! One majorly BAD thing happened, and one confusing thing happened today. The majorly bad one I'll regret for the rest of my life! But the confusing one was rather confusing. Apparently, Mari was in the Eastern Plaguelands again, but she encounters a Scourge Death Knight. She didn't tell me the full story, but what she did tell me is that all her love for me was put into her split second part of her soul, whose name was Perste. That type of issue I can deal with, but this other issue I I just couldn't deal with. Today, I lost a family member, and a great friend. Vin and I were sent to the Blasted Lands to go find an old bomb that was supposed to be used when the Burning Legion invaded Azeroth. They said that it never went off when the Legion poured through the Dark Portal. They also said that it had an explosion that would kill 50 Legion members if they were nearby. We found the bomb near the Portal, and

Sep 19, 2012 by techgnotic
The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Earth. But
My first poem.. sad, but expressive.A boy with short black hair, sits in the corner of the classroom.My first poem.. sad, but expressive.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
His eyes of an empty blue, he wishes for his own doom.
He walks home, on a cold day, his gaze doesn't shift from the ground.
He feels like screaming, but makes no sound.
He crosses the street on the way home, not looking both ways, wishing a car would hit him from the side.
He's alive, but inside, he has completely died.
He is nothing but a shell of what he used to be, his smile is a lie.
This sorrow has taken ahold, and has ripped every shred of happiness from him.
As a child his eyes were bright and full of life, now they are ever so dim.
He goes out back, tying a rope around the branch of a tree.
He then ties the other end around his neck, a chair under his feet.
He gulps, and jumps off, the eerie crack can be heard.
Noone bothered to speak to him, not even a word.
Now all of the sudden, people start to care.
Now all of the sudden, they were aware.
They finally notice how alone and hurt he truly felt, all the words th

Skyrim RantI was watching my sister play Skyrim. And I'm not sure if you know, but I HATE it when she gives Cicero armor.Skyrim Rant2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I told her he isn't Cicero without his outfit, and all she did was glitch the clothes.
She gave him robes that had the hood with them, and gave him an ebony helmet.
Which causes the game to make him wear the helmet and TRY to wear the clothes.
Nope. I greatly dislike that, because it doesn't follow Cicero's character.
He's thin and strong. Not a Centurion with more hair than a snow bear.
Like, seriously. He needs his jester outfit. Because I hate having his hands out of his gloves.
She even took his hat.

Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

Ok, so... apparently I have been in a coma for three days. They have said that I smashed my head onto a mountain in Deepholm. I had a large bump on my head. My drake had been injured due to the crash. And amazingly, he recovered quite fast. Before I fell into a coma, Mari was frozen to stone by an elemental in Deepholm as well. Jen and Kat both headed there, and Jen took care of Mari, while Kat took care of me. Vin took me, and followed Kat to where Jen the petrified Mari was. Jen, who was really trying to save her friend, swapped spells, thus making her stone instead of Mari; the spell will ware off in a matter of 2 days. Not knowing what to do, Vin, Mari, and Kat took me and the now-petrified-Jen to my house back at Stormwind. Vin laid me on the floor with a pillow, and a while silk blanket rapped around me. Kat placed Jen on a barrel A barrel; I swear, he just gets more brilliant every day. Anyways, Vin said that he w
