...Power has shifted. New greed replaces the old.
I've been stuck for a long time between trying to convince myself that my thesis is going to get finished by september, and trying avoid getting an aneurysm from reading about how many things Eidos Montréal is going to fuck up in Thief 4.
Seriously. It really is starting to look like in certain aspects the studio is doing exactly the opposite of what people have been asking for during the last decade, and all the other news we get seem to indicate that they never wanted to make a Thief game in the first place but were forced to use that intellectual property. So no matter what, they want their own ideas implemented, even if it clashes directly with the IP they are supposed to model their product after.But complaining about a game is not why I'm here.
I can do the complaining in the forums.
...Actually I can't since I was banned from there due to making convincing arguments in public about the lack of impartiality by the official moderators who were giving unsurprisingly positive hands-on impressions of a...-NO! That's not why I'm here.
I'm here to share something really amazing. Take a look at this animated artwork.
I have never seen anything like it. From what I can piece together, they use an 8-bit color pallette, where certain ranges of colors are made to cycle so that those particular colors smoothy change in the picture. One of the most insane versions of it is the forest snowfall, where the paths of the snowflakes are traced with the cycling colors of the pallette seamlessly in the bark of the trees and the background.
I also apologize for the lack of artwork. I just feel like if I start something and then take a break to do my thesis, I can't pick up a piece of artwork again. So why bother even starting?
...Also, what is the logic behind making "The Last of Us" a PS3 exclusive this late in the console's lifespan? They're certainly not selling new consoles with the game, and they are certainly cutting into their own profits by not giving players of other platforms access to the game. It's insane. It's like they don't want money.
