EA refuses to waver from their stance that the always-online DRM for SimCity that's caused so many problems is absolutely necessary to the functioning of the game. However, a modder by the name of UKAzzer has proved that EA is basically full of shit. UKAzzer discovered that the code which checks for a connection every 20 minutes could be changed to 0, resulting in no checks at all. The game still plays and functions perfectly offline, with only minor hiccups.
You can view his video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?featurelayer_embedded&v=Bmce9oIxJag
On a side note, EA's CEO John Riccitiello has resigned. I wonder if the SimCity debacle is in any way related...?

WHY IS THIS CONTEST BEING HELD?
This contest is being held to raise awareness of The Undershaw Preservation Trust (UPT). They are vigourously working toward saving Undershaw (the home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the writer of the Sherlock Holmes stories) from development and preserving it as Conan Doyle's home for future generations of Doyleans, Holmesians/Sherlockians, and literary fans of all kinds. Go to "A Brief History of Undershaw" on their website to find out what has happened to ACD's former home.
WHAT ARE WE DOING?
We are creating a montage of Sherlock Holmes fans showing their support for the UPT's cause. When the project closes (May 6th) the montage will then be sold as a print (not on DeviantART) and ALL profits will go to the future of Undershaw

Selling my soul to DisneyI know I asked about which pics you guys would look forward to seeing the most in my last poll, but just a fair warning: I'm going to be doing quite a bit of Disney works mixed in with that. The reason why? I'm trying to land a job as a concept artist with Disney.Selling my soul to Disney2 years ago in Personal More Like This
No, I'm not kidding. I heard from my barber that one of her customer's daughters actually got a job at Disney by sending in several of her drawings, with a full paid scholarship to Florida U. No, this isn't one of those "my friend's friend's friend said" stories. She knows the girl, and she was the one who designed all the characters in Monsters Inc. Yeah.
It's not just going to be fanarts though. The core of the project is going to be a concept I've been thinking of for awhile: an Indian/Hindi version of Princess and the Pea. I've already got a few sketches done, and I hope to get it sent in time to hopefully land a scholarship in 2014. Who knows, maybe I'll upload some of the pics in the future.
Anyway, this is just a la

When I post art, I always expect crit. Even though I don't formally request it, I do assume some people to come by and evaluate my stuff because they feel like they can communicate with an artist with something helpful.

Olympic Fire and IndustryWell; the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics certainly was .surprising.Olympic Fire and Industry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I predicted; there was quite a bit of content that just had me squirming in my chair, thinking "No! NO! Why did you do that?!". The absurdity of the nod to the NHS, for example, and the sudden appearance of various storybook villains, which felt (for lack of a better word) "Disney".
However; the "historical" section of the ceremony's opening half utterly blew me away. An unexpected appearance by Kenneth Branagh, playing Isambard Kingdom Brunel (who essentially WAS the Industrial Revolution), began a spectacular sequence that pretty much summed up what Britain's past was all about; fire and industry.
It was, without a doubt, the highlight of the entire spectacle, and if you either didn't get the chance to catch it or didn't bother to watch it, I urge you to track it down online!

Dragonborn - Don’t really care for this one so far. Just hasn’t peaked my interest yet.
Dawnguard - I’m REALLY enjoying this one, although as you’ll see it’s necessitated that I add some mods to help keep it from breaking my game.
Hearthfires - I enjoyed this one too. Very relaxing and fun to hunt the world for resources to build your own homes, marry, and adopt children.
Birds - Adds extra birds flying around the world.

Disney vs Lucas ArtsIf ever you bring up Disney in a conversation, people immediately recite tired old issues with the company that haven't been true for a long time. For example, complaining about the excess of half-assed sequels. That was part of Michael Eisner's regime. When he left the studio the quality Disney was producing suddenly skyrocketed considerably. Likewise the excessive merchandising and branding of Disney related products has also ceased to be as all-consuming now that Eisner is gone. In fact, a lot of the main issues people had with Disney during the 90's and early 2000's was a result of Eisner.Disney vs Lucas Arts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since Eisner left, the Disney studio has done a REMARKABLE job in clearing their name of many of the atrocities they had committed during his regime. They promptly turned the animation department around and have even begun doing 2-D animated films again after Eisner said "no." Granted, at the moment 2-D is still in hiatus, but the situation isn't as dire as it use to be and there's still promise
Skyrim ReviewTwo or three years late but whatever! We can't all buy stuff day one, right? Anyway, if you've been following my journal entries as I've started playing Skyrim you can probably tell how this review is gonna go down.Skyrim Review1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I hate complicated things, and Skyrim is a game with a deep and rich history that can be very difficult for newbies like me to get into. Right off the bat the game throws all sorts of names, races, powers, legends, lore, etc at you. Too much of that can be a big turn off (heck I know people who still haven't read Lord of the Rings because there were too many names), but luckily Skyrim does a good job of easing players into the game.
There is a main campaign you have to follow to technically "beat" the game, but you don't have to follow it. The moment I had a chance to break free of the story I did so and I went exploring. That allowed me, a new person unfamiliar with any of the lore of the Elder Scrolls series, to experience the world at my own pace. The world is so e

"I'm going to try to disipate some doubts about CSW, I know you have been waiting a long time so I'll try to answer the most common questions:
First and most important is that the project has not been cancelled. We started to work professionaly and we have been expending a lot of time
without developing fully CSW to improve ourselves in other areas and taking a break doing different kind of things.
The truth is that we still have a lot of things about CSW that we haven't showed yet and some day will be shown;
my advice is that you just keep going on with your lives and someday you will find some update, but for the moment there isn't none.
Nothing of this can be published on the main site because we lost access to it a long time ago, we talked about that time ago. Also we can't release a first version
and then update it with downloable characters because the core of the game is not done, you might think it is by the videos, but it's
Research HeadacheI decided to start the new year off by doing a research binge. For the past 48 hours I’ve been seeking out documentaries, specials, books, websites, ancient literature, etc. I kinda like to think the brain is like a sponge, absorbing everything that’s put around it. The basic idea is that I soak up enough of this knowledge I can use it on a more instinctual level when I’m writing.Research Headache1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Fun though this is in it’s own way, it’s still work. As much as I am enjoying doing all this voluntary research I am beginning to feel a little burnt out by how much information I’ve been assimilating.
This isn’t really related but if you haven’t seen the History Channel’s miniseries “Vikings,” you should definitely check it out if you can. Quite impressed with it, and loving the attention to details and character development. Kinda like Game of Thrones in it’s tone and brutality, but without all the “sexposition” dialogue and

I have already made a poll about it and it seems the majority weren't even aware there was a new system, most people actually thought it was a bug...says a lot about it already. Anyway... I have sent and inquiry and I can now officially confirm DA is running a new front page system. Let me explain what it basically does. The 'popular page' called so because popular works are featured there has changed. The new system is designed to give a leg up to more 'undiscovered artists'. Basically? the system no longer works according to favourites like the old system did. More obscure categories are granted priority over more popular ones e.g Fanart-anime manga- movies TV would be replaced by a image with a lower fav count from Fanart-digital-vector. Before I get lynched by people accusing me of being annoyed/jealous because my own work is no longer featured on the front pag

No, really!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Thanks to the rebellion/revolution, the British Government changed the way it conducted itself so as to ensure such an incident would never happen again.
Had they not, a revolution similar to that seen in France, 1789, would have very likely occurred on home turf.
The French leadership maintained their "all powerful" fašade, and in assisting the American colonies, spent a fortune. This further angered their already irate people, who, in seeing that it could be done, decided to have a little revolution of their own.
So, with the economy booming thanks to renewed transatlantic trade between Fair Blighty and the newly formed United States and with Britain's arch enemy France focused on tearing itself apart, there was nothing to stop the Empire's expansion.
