Giddy up horsey...

Yeah, I've been playing a lot of Red Dead Redemption lately. It's good. You should check out my review here: www.giveupalready.com/content.…

  • Listening to: Foo Fighters - In Your Honor

The Mass Effect

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 2, 2010, 1:32 PM
Ladies and gentlemen, I feel honour bound to draw your attention to a game that has come out lately by the name of Mass Effect 2.

Anyone who has played the previous Mass Effect will know that it has already made a name for itself as a by-word for quality dialogue, in-depth story and engaging characters. Mass Effect 2 is no different. Never before has a set of games touched me on such an emotional scale. What Bioware have achieved here is to be applauded. They've created a series that transcends the usual visceral and bombastic world of video games and created something that interacts with you on a emotional and intelligent level.

They have created a story line were YOUR choices, YOUR actions and YOUR conversations shape and define YOUR story. You feel that you are not playing a game where the actions and consequences are defined by a binary series of pre-determined actions, the outcomes of which are already decided for you by the game designers. Rather you are playing an experience that is shaped around your choices. If someone dies, or a mission goes wrong it is down to YOUR actions, no one else's.

These are really a remarkable series of games. I cannot wait for the third and final episode, and will be franticly downloading any DLC that comes out for them.

Simply put if you consider yourself to be a gamer of any sort, you owe it to yourself to play these. Seriously, games like these don't come along that often. So come on in, space may be big, but dear god is it beautiful.

That is all

The Rise of CyanideJack

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 16, 2010, 7:31 AM
Ahoy,

Some of you may (or may not) have noticed I moved my Thicker Than Water and recent Inquisitor stuff to a new account I've created specifically for the purpose: :iconcyanidejack:

This is where I'll be uploading all my "serious" art stuff from now on. Please check it out, I could do with some comments, friends/watchers and page hits lol :)

Don't worry, I've not abandoned this account. Watch this space as they say.

The silence of the Ninja

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 31, 2009, 7:01 AM
Ahoy all,

I'm taking a bit of a break from doing Office Ninja at the moment. I'm basically out of ideas (feel free to submit your ideas below, if you have any). I always tried to avoid producing a strip because I felt I "had to", but rather tried to submit work which I wanted to share with everyone. At the moment, I don't have anything else to share. When drawing a comic becomes more about trying desperately to fill a blank template with the funnehz, you know it's time to take a break.

I'm also tempted to try my hand at something else. I'm not sure if I will (as most of you will know, I'm notoriously lazy) but it's based off some older stuff I did as a series of one offs, and I'd like to maybe take them forward.

Either way, this is not a goodbye. Partially because I like Office Ninja as a concept as I'll return to him as soon as I can, but mainly because I have 6 months remaining on my paid subscription, and I don't want to waste it...

Until we meet again, comrades!  

That is all

Ok, so there's this chap on Deviantart who produces some really rather good stuff, and you should check him out here: :icongetant: he even did a bit of fan art for me once, which is surely worth viewing his page alone: getant.deviantart.com/art/Timm…

So get your arses over to his page now. Do it. Are you doing it yet?

Ahoy,

Due to Tiscali sucking so much donkey dick that I've had to leave them, I'm internet-less at home at the moment. Therefore there will be no comic this week. Sorry. All well and good, I should be set up with O2 in time to post as normal next week.

Tires of SOLID GOLD!

Bloody. Hell. It would seem my car likes tires only made from compressed gold laminated in diamonds. I've just had to fork out over £200 to get two tires replaced. Happy fucking days.

And now the moment you've not been waiting for.

By quite a clear margin, I think you'll agree that the Watercooler Pirate as suggested by :iconguavaman202: won the vote, and as such will be introduced into the comic shortly.

It's worth pointing out at this point that I have no real clear idea about how I'm going to tie in the watercooler aspect to the pirate character, so bonus points if someone can come up with an idea on that.

I'm now off to eat sausages.

Soooooooooooooo. I was thinking about adding in another character to the smorgasbord of characters that are already in Office Ninja. I thought I'd throw it over to you guys.

Not saying I WILL do anything of these (currently half way through a "story arc/ plot" of sorts, plus I'm a lazy bastard), but any contribution will be gladly excepted.

Please vote for:

1) A Watercooler Pirate (originaly suggested by :iconguavaman202: )

2) Another Ninja (Le Gasp!)

3) Another robot

4) Something else (please state).

Ahoy

A comparison that's often made is that my ON stuff looks a lot like Kris Wilson's Cyanide and Happiness stuff: kris-wilson.deviantart.com/

Don't get me wrong, I agree, it does. In the sense that Kris & Co seem to have a monopoly on the whole "square body, round head, lines for limbs" thing.

So, I ask you, does it bother you? Would you prefer to see some changes made to make my stuff different?

I think it's important for me to try and develop a "unique look" as it where, so I'd be interested in knowing what YOU LOT, the people who actualy have to trawl through this tat every week, would suggest. Trousers instead of just legs? More detailed clothes? More detailed backgrounds? What?

I'd actually appreciate the feedback, in all seriousness. I'd like to continue with Office Ninja and Co for as long as people are willing to keep watching it. But I do feel, it's perhapes time to branch out with a more unique style, and it seems only sensible that you lot have a say in that.

Discuss.

Ahoy!

Well, I've just returned from a very windswept trip down to Cornwall to see my folks (some photos from which can be found at my other account here: www.psychopixel.deviantart.com ).

Other than that, I'm not sure about the rest of you, but DeviantArt seems to be back to running as normal now, so I've put my nukes away for the time being.

Come the new year, I'd LIKE (i.e there's no guarantee I'll be bothered) to start an actual comic strip story, featuring everyones favourite office based ninja. If anyone has a story idea, I'd love to hear it. Similarly if you have an idea for a strip, or a new character or something, fire away.

There might be some other news, but I'm waiting on that to be sure. Needless to say, it's nothing major.

Not sure when I'll be uploading something next, probably the week after Christmas. Either way, have a good one peeps, and have a very pleasant new year.

Right, I just spent FIVE FUCKING HOURS trying to get onto DeviantArt to check my messages. This is starting to take the piss. I've contacted DA Tech support, but I suspect it's more to do with those shit-chucking apes over at my ISP (Tiscali Broadband: FAIL). We'll see.

Either way, it's made doubley irritating, because just as I managed to find some people kind enough to actually comment on my work, I find myself having to spend decades trying to actually see those comments.

There will be blood.
