Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and realityReboot of Tomb Raider franchise was probably the most heatedly discussed topic over the last 4 years. We didn’t know if it would become a success or yet another fail, but there was one thing that was clear as a day – fandom split in two. One group supported and firmly believed in the reboot. The other group hated and resented the idea of it claiming that Lara Croft is dead for them now.Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and reality2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Now the game is out. It IS a success. Franchise that was on a razor edge before was saved. But there is one question that remained unanswered – did people who resented reboot change their mind or they just receded in the dark mourning over the character that is dead for them now.
Tomb Raider Empire offers you, dear loyal raiders, a little quiz that will help to make things clear. It will be really interesting for us to hear your answers on the given questions and we are sure it will be inter

The second secret unlocked!Dear raiders, a month ago as a present to Lara’s BD, we created the Treasure Vault project and revealed the first secret we had prepared for you. The time to unlock the second one has finally come and we are happy to present you an exclusive collection of videos and commercials Lara appeared in. We’ve collected everything we managed to find and it turned out to be quite an impressive pile of videos so we divided it into three thematic sections which we will reveal one by one. So enjoy part one – Commercials. Two others are soon to follow!The second secret unlocked!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Earlier today we posted a blog about two possible Tomb Raider games and they both were just officially confirmed!
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Crystal Dynamics, a Square Enix studio, today announced its latest title in the critically acclaimed and award-winning Tomb Raider series, Rise of the Tomb Raider . The game will redefine survival action in Holiday 2015.
In her first adventure, Lara Croft was forged into a true survivor, but she glimpsed a deeper, secret world. In the next chapter of her journey, Lara must use her survival skills and wits, learn to trust new friends, and ultimately accept her destiny as the Tomb Raider.
“With the power of the new generation, and our proprietary Foundation engine, our high octane action moments will be even more epic. Multiple locations around the world will be filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth and over three times larger than we could

What do you think? Looks gorgeous to me and that parachute part was especially breathtaking. That is definitely something we haven’t tried before and that is gonna be soooo much fun.
And that’s not all as for the amazing videos. Did you get excited over the scene of Lara’s escape from the prisoners’ camp and her first kill? Well now you can see the full scene from the moment of Lara being captured up to the final gun shot. Enjoy:
American Internet Censorship Bill Part 2Yesterday I posted a journal about my thoughts on the American Internet Censorship Bill that was being voted on by the House of Representatives. Within minutes of me posting I found out that the bill was defeated by a majority vote (though a very close one). So for now our precious internet is free once again, but it also raises an entirely different discussion...American Internet Censorship Bill Part 24 years ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of the comments I saw on the various websites I went to dealt with upholding the true definition of "freedom" on the internet. It was quite apparent that a lot of people who were upset at the idea of internet censorship were more or less concerned that they might have to be held responsible for their bad behavior online.

i have always been a huge fan of art books. in fact i would say that 99 percent of my bookshelves are filled with art books ranging from animation to fashion design and everything visual in between. it was partly why i am so excited to have produced my own book, Walking Your Octopus. one of my goals with this project was to create an art book that was also an art object and this vision guided every aspect of the book's production. as we all know ebooks are becoming more and more popular and i struggled with how my book which was a celebration of all things analog might fit into the digital space. fortunately my very creative friend eric, had the solution...Aereoscope.

Hey dear watchers,
Here's a new XPS Countdown version! As a reminder: You are not forced to update! It is your own choice on how many updates you actually download and use.
- Yepp we thought it'd be kinda fun to have a few small versions before XPS 11!
Here's a list:
- New Sepia Shader that does a sepia tone, which makes the texture look kind of like an old photograph. Exists in two variations: "Options-->Post-processing parameters" (affects the whole scene), "Shader-->Sepia Tone default shader" (affects only 3d models (not background image) This can be adjust using the "Post-processing parameters" like the ''Saturation'' slider
- Default pose stored into the .xps mesh file with scale informations
- After load a scene with different models, the scene can be saved with the names of the replaced items
- Easter Egg can now also inkoked if the Control Window is active

I HAD A SCARY DREAM ABOUT BLACK ACE AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA OAO;;;;;
HERE BE DEH DREAM LADS.
I was coming back from school, and I see my house with police men around it and the front windows were broken as if someone jumped into them. I was asking myself questions. Who would do that sort of thing? I was trying to get in my house but the police men were holding me back. I told them I lived here. My Grandfather was here and told them that I lived here. so they let me go, But my Grandpa told me "You dont want to go in there. it's sad." But I went in there anyway. what could possibly Happen?
I got inside and saw my family around my dog on the floor, chopped in half. Her blood was spilling everywhere on the wooden floor, her legs looked like other dogs bit her. My mom was in my dad's arms, William was in tears, Mathieu was angry. I was traumatized, But it was still weird. the cut was perfect, like as if a sword did this. Who would use a sword whe
While my Guitar Gently WeepsI'm sure many of you already know this but for those who don't, late August 23, Jerry Nelson [Floyd Pepper, Count Von Count, Gobo Fraggle and so on] passed away. Jerry was one of the greats, in my [and I'm sure many] opinion, he was the voice of the Muppets, whenever someone talks of a beautiful song, it's normally sung by him. Makes sense since he said once if it wasn't for Jim giving him a job, he would of become a Folk singer [by the way, his CD is really nice, a mix of silly and beauty.]While my Guitar Gently Weeps3 years ago in Personal More Like This
At first when I found out I was stunned, but after a little time, it's ok, Jerry has raised many of us to love music, to count, to adventure, and to laugh. Now, he has gone to the Rainbow Connection, he will be preforming once more with Richard Hunt. He will see old friends, and lost loved ones. Jerry lived a long life, leaving us plenty to remember, so this is why I feel, while tears are inevitable, that we should celebrate, as we did with Jim, and as we did with Richard, we should grab our instru

The #165 XNALara/XPS release
4 years ago 20. Feb. 2009, XNALara version 1.0 was born,
developed by :icondusanpavlicek:, the original creator of XNALara.
Now, 164 versions later http://xnalara.home-forum.com/t170-xnalara-xna-posing-studio-latest-version , XNALara/XPS 10.9.5 will support Speech Bubbles
I know it would be a lot of work, with a new menu needed, etc - so I don't hold my breath ! But it would beat having to save each image and load them into a tool like Photoshop or Movie-maker to add the subtitles...
... We love a XPS that would give more support to story-tellers. You too? ...

I thought I should stop by to let you all know that I am still alive and kicking.
I have been a busy Slinkers working my tail off trying to save monies for the HOUSE I am buying in May this year. Yes that's right. Slinkers is getting a HOUSE.
Not even like a shack house...its a real one! Like with 4 walls (MADE OF BRICKS) and a whole roof. Holy shiznits I hear you all say....is this really the cucumber addict we used to know?
Against all the odds, all of the rebounds, all of the falling-off-the-cucumer-wagons....I have spent quite some time in cucumber rehabs and I got my life on track. I have signed a legal agreement to say that I will not use any rooms as a cucumber farm.
Over the past few months in my spare time I have mostly watching series 3 of Sherlock, which was excellent...but not as good as series 2 in my opinion...maybe you would disagree on that?

Leave a comment below if you would like to participate - and also state what your gift request is. Next Saturday, December 10th, we will assign people their Secret Santas and send each of you a Note with your person and their request.
Gift ideas must be simple - not all of us can do complex stuff, whether for time or skill set reasons. You are limited to 1-2 YGO characters with a Christmas- or holiday-oriented theme. This also gives the artists free rein to do what they want - cosplay photos, comics, fanfiction one-shots, traditional or digital drawings, etc. For example, my Secret Santa's idea last year was "Bakura in reindeer antlers."
