- Double Trouble was originally Haldor.
- Cyclops Snail evolved into Zap during production.
- Spyro was originally red and called Fire Dragon. While His Purple Majesty was originally going to be a benevolent and regal NPC, “it was felt that we couldn’t have a game called Spyro’s Kingdom without Spyro as a playable character, so Fire Dragon became Spyro."
- Originally, Camo was going to look like the Chinese Dragon Skylander during the development of Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, bearing the same attacks as well. His design still looked like the Chinese Dragon when The Begnning trailer was made, and changes to his character design was made very late during production. The Chinese Dragon Skylander is now a scrapped character design, with Camo being his successor: https://twitte

Presets in deviantART muro (Beta Testers)
Adding filters to images when using deviantART muro just got easier! The new Presets tab in the sidebar allows you to quickly easily transform an image's appearance, ranging from things that professional photographers often do during post processing of images to fun diversions.
The filters in the Preset tab, many of which were previously available in the Filters menu, make it easier than ever to edit and share images, which is especially useful for deviants when sharing images quickly in comments or Journals.

The Hobbit (1966)Nearly a decade before Rankin Bass had hired the wonderful animators of Studio Ghibli to create the very movie that gotten me into the world of Middle Earth and Tolkien's writings, there once was another version.The Hobbit (1966)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It was called plainly enough, The Hobbit.
And it was only 12 minutes long.
Well, this story, because it was so short, pretty much stripped everything that was The Hobbit out.
So, we begin our tale in the Kingdom of Dale, that was very rich and golden because of the mines of the Lonely Mountain. And here is where we get our first incorrect bit of info. Firstly, Dale wasn't a kingdom, it was pretty much a duchy, most importantly, it was a city. It was a city of Men that rested only, from what I've seen, short of 10 miles outside the gates of Erebor, the Lonely Mountain. Erebor was a kingdom of dwarves ruled by Thrór, King Under the Mountain.
Now Esgaroth and Dale were apart of the kingdom of Rhovanion, but that was
Horses Are For Courses!With all this talk of horse meat in the news lately, it's time we take a step back and really ask ourselves all the fuss is about.Horses Are For Courses!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
History of Horse Meat
Horses are often revered as working animals, and companions. They've greatly contributed to the advancing of civilizations, from the horse-drawn war chariots of the Romans, to the Pony Express of the Old West, horses have had a significant and lasting effect on all of the civilizations that have adopted them. These faithful, hardworking animals have had a place at our side since we first domesticated them. But horses were on the menu long before we were on their backs.
Horse meat was central to our ancestors' diet and played a sacred role in rituals and customs. For example, Celtic chieftains were buried with their steeds, the Vikings' favorite meat was horse meat, and Caligula even appointed his horse as a Senator of Rome. The switch from food source to working animal can be partially attributed to Pope Gregory III in the 8th c

Getting into the Video Game Industry So, odd, but it seems almost at the same time, I got all these questions about getting into the game industryGetting into the Video Game Industry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll try to answer a few here, but I'm going to leave a link below. It has a great resource of every question you could think of (and of course, the following answer )
Breaking Into The Game Industry:
Let me just be blunt; it can feel like beating your head up against a brick wall at times...a brick wall that's been set on fire and largely made out of rabid cats. Should this deter you from still trying? No. But you should be aware of what I like to call "Catch-22 hell." Most large companies want you to already have video game making experience BEFORE they hire you. However, the ONLY WAY you're going to get that experience is if they do hire you.
I hit that wall after graduating from two colleges. Living in Southern California, there were tons of video
