Oh don't you worry, Kingdom Hearts is well over my head now. The concepts were basic enough for the first two games but then the side games started throwing in all this weird stuff and I just try not to read too much into it now and just play for the game play. So yeah especially if you found out about it late, you'd be so much worse off than me. As for Final Fantasy, I think you'd be alright there. I've found those games easier to grasp and understand than the latest couple of Kingdom Hearts games. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is out now and I'm getting my copy at the end of this week, really looking forward to it.
I'm following an online course at the moment but once I eventually finish that off, I'd like to get some professional lessons. I got my money refunded for the online course so it's essentially free, haha. It's called Pianoforall if you're interested.
How could I forget such a pretty face? What do you study at school and what kind of work do you do at your internship?
I am a fairly big reader too but I am into fictional tales and such. I also play games like Pokemon but I lean towards other stuff like Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts for RPGs and then Tekken and Soul Calibur for fighting games. Rather than running, I love to cycle and do my karate. I play the Pokemon TCG competitively and I play a little bit of piano as well.
AC2 is actually way better. You should start with it if you don't want to go near 1, that's what I did. I understand how gaming is going to be a hindrance on production in school. Luckily for me, I'm going to be studying it...ironically, in Dublin, so when I referred to "Capitol City", I meant Dublin! I'm moving up in a week. So if you do come, you'll have a friend! It sounds kind of like an Arts degree you'd be doing. But I've never heard of a degree which would include all those subjects. Ireland is a little limited in that area. But aaaah, it'd be so crazy if we ended up in the same city. Dublin is pretty big though.
why thank you! happy birthday to you :D well i guess we've formally met now. don't do what i did when i turned 21 though... aka get a giant margarita at 11:30 in the morning, then go to work, then have a night class xD
Usually the same case for me. I'm an avid Skyrim fan, really. I've clocked an astronomical amount of hours on it. From 360 to PC, much better on PC though. I do love Assassin's creed though, I don't like the first one much, you may like the 2nd one better if you don't. As I found it as a big improvement and the first wasn't entirely relevant. Depending on how mature you like your games, you may love The Witcher and The Witcher 2 (just on xbox 360 and PC, I think). I have to say that I agree that knowing history behind art, especially classical art, really helps me be more interested in it. As artists like Da Vinci wouldn't have the same presence now, as he was different in his time. Same goes for Picasso and all the other greats you hear about in school. Next time I'm in Paris though I intend on reading up and going to the Louvre. What do you study then?
And well yeah, kind of. I've done courses in graphic design, and worked in graphic design professionally. Then I've taught myself everything really, I just did the graphic design course for the sheet of paper at the end of it. Been doing that for 3 years, same with web design and art in general. Self-taught mostly though, learned a bit when I worked in industry also however. But I'm moving to capitol city here in my country to do 3D & Animation, I want to get into landscape creation in gaming or film. So creating regions like Skyrim itself, is my aim. I start in a few weeks, it's a good course though. A few Oscar nominee's have done it, including the animator from Avatar. It was a tough course to get into.
Yeah, I've seen you a few times, but I happened to read your interests when I came upon your profile and said I'd chat with you!
Well I'm hugely into Skyrim. I do love games that have such lore, and immersion. I enjoy many elements of history, I love to read things like that, but art history is something I want to study more. I do a bit of art myself, and I've never been taught art history. I'm interested in getting into it more. Especially since Da Vinci is my inspiration and...well, not idol but compass when it comes to success. I desire to be a polymath in my fields also.
Likewise! Surprised it's taken this long to cross paths.
