Over the weekend I had been playing a lot of the new Super Smash Brothers game for the Wii U. I came up with an idea for a basketball game mode, mocked up a stage in the level editor, and to my surprise it turned out to be quite a lot of fun. I wanted other people to get a chance to play this mode, but without any proper level sharing in the game getting it out to the public proved problematic. That is when I came up with the idea for this fun set of GIFS. I got to illustrate something fun as well as share my idea with my fellow Smash Bros. Fans. If you haven't tried playing this mode yet open up the level editor and give it a shot!
I made this as a reminder to myself, and any others who may come across it, to save and save often. There have been so many times where I'll be working for hours on end only to have my program crash on me, and unfortunately most of the time I am so "in the zone" that i forget to save. Hours of work can vanish is just seconds. So what I'll do now is print this out, set it next to my desk, and any time I look at it I'm going to click that save button.
This weekend I took the time to set up all of my retro consoles to my current entertainment center. So to show my excitement I drew this! This is also my first time using the animation feature in Photoshop. The process can be a little annoying for someone who is used to working in Flash, but being able to use Photoshop brushed sure does help things look nicer. Go ahead and take a guess at which game that might be.
I'm changing the things work on the site just a bit. First off I'm taking the blog off of the front page and replacing it with a demo reel and contact information. I figured most people coming to my site are coming here for that, and if they're interested then can click around to see more stuff. Also I tried importing my old blog posts and they didn't come in correctly, so I'll either reformat them and put them in later or they'll just stay gone FOREVER! Let's see how things go.
