 Home Photography - The T1000 likes to show off his muscle on the dance floor for the ladies.
I decide to do my own photo gallery of playstation home, using in game camera. Here's my first pic.

Not a good presentation, but I know why.

Edit (I had this posted but GB F-uped and didn't add my whole paragraph explain what was going on)... 
The presentation for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is probably going to be one of the most talked portion of Nintendo's press conference. For anyone who didn't understand what was wrong it was probably all the lights and camera infrared screwing up the controls. Not to mention the load of wireless equipment in the surrounding area which adds to the factors. Like usual the 12 year old (or just plain internet ass) will bash them for the poor presentation.   Just remember when people normally play this, it won't be in a room filled with lights and cameras pointing at you.
Anyways, I'm curious to see how it works. I'll wait for GB to do their hands-on impressions. 

Child of Eden - The game that's got me intrigued from E3

Child of Eden is the only trailer I seem to be going back to over and over from E3 so dar. Maybe it's the combination of music and the fact that's it's a sequel to Rez. If you haven't tried Rez, do yourself a favor and download it off Xbox Live Arcade(as Rez HD) and enjoy porn for you ears. It's beautiful. 
Tetsuya Mizuguchi    (creator of Rez and Child of Eden) don't let me down. 
Here's the song from the trailer 

The Proposition... I made a short movie with the same title.

 After writing my previous Site For Sounds Blog for Red Dead Redemption. It reminded me of a previous film I made about 2 years ago. I really like this personally cause of the ambient sounds I mixed in. 

Ironically my producer/co-director/writer wanted to call the movie “The Proposition.” At the time he wrote this script he never heard about the John Hilton feature film with the same title. 

 I saw the Red Dead Redemption Short Movie on Giantbomb. I liked it, it was fun to see the cutscenes differently. 

Anyways, we just made this film for fun, no reward or contest.   Write a comment if you'd like.

100% Red Dead Redemption

100% .... I actually 100% the single player for Red Dead Redemption (on Xbox 360). I could honestly say this is probably one of my personal greatest gaming achievements. At the same time I also think I’m the biggest dork in the world. It’s a love hate thing.  

 Look at me mom are you proud?... No?... Damn it!

WHOA! Snoopy Flying Ace is awesome.

So I'm a huge fan of Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge for the original xbox. In fact, that was the game I bought that and sold me on the xbox live service. So after hearing about Snoopy Flying Ace through Giantbomb's quick lock video, I had to take a look. I tried the trial version and it comes with 30 minutes of xbox live time. So the developers of this game knows that it's a multiplayer game and it's going to suck anyone in that plays for those 30 minutes. I couldn't get enough so immediately bought it. For 800 points this is a steal for any fans. This game came out of no where. I love it when companies release gems like this. 
This is probably the closest we'll ever get to seeing another Crimson Skies game so for 10 bucks, this definitely gets the itch out while I wait. 


Site For Sounds - Red Dead Redemption (Part 1)


Red Dead Redemption is one of those games that definitely pushes the limit with the capabilities with sound. All the little things you can hear in this game is mind boggling. Anyone who’s playing this game or just finished knows this has production value. Red Dead Redemption defines what it’s like to have an excellent headset or a total kick ass surround sound system when you play. But like usual, I can only tell you what it sounds like on my Turtle Beach Headset Ear Force X4 Headset.    

With any good western story, you need to have a horses. Rockstar definitely went into detail with horse graphically , but of course I want to talk about the sound. When you’re trotting with your horse hooves you can hear the difference between when you’re on a main path, off road, crossing a wooden bridge. The swamp lands near the Thieves hideout is always a nice touch hearing the steps of the horse make small splashes as move along. My personal favorite sound the horse foot step makes is when you’re trotting in the snow. Just hearing the hooves pressing down and compacting snow underneath it is pure sound heaven.I haven’t had this fun playing a game with a horse since, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time    


Let’s not forget what Rockstar is very good at, the small details. Some people think that skinning the animal get boring due to it’s lengthy animation. This may sound evil, but with surround sound headset, it really rocks.  You hear the knife puncturing through the meat and blood splattering, along with blood spraying on the screen. One top of that you John Marston making some sly remark like, “Lets me take your coat madame.” 

I really applaud the sound department team for noticing small things especially when you walk around a town. In town of Chuparosa I walked in between a set hanging pigs and you can hear the rope holding them up build tension. To me that was just pure audio candy. It’s all the small details that count for audio enthusiast to appreciate.




    My personal favorite thing to travel off course and huff it on foot. In the middle of the desert, sometimes you can hear wolves in the distance howling. The birds chirping or random gun fire from a distance. It’s fun when cougars and barracudas come out to attack you. They’re so fast and you won’t know they’re attacking you until you hear their growls. It sometime makes me jump.

I could get into the music department, but that’s a whole other blog entry in itself. If you can get your hands on surround sound headset, do yourself a favor and have play one night with with Red Dead Redemption and indulge yourself into audio heaven.

Favorite SFX: Springfield Rifle shots.


Site For Sounds - Battlefield Bad Company 2

  A good shooter always gets me pumped when listening to them on my Turtle Beach Headphones. I finally got to try DICE's Battlefield Bad Company 2. Now that's what I call a fun game. Each battle starts of fairly quite. Shuffling of your soldiers feet as he runs to whatever vehicle or direction you choose to head of to. You can hear the dog tags and whatever part of your apparel that's loose on the soldiers outfits making noise. I'm usually a sniper in the game, but I'm not one of those camping ones. I like to tag my targets for my teammates. I've been working with my brother and his friends on that. It really helps the team when you have a sniper that isn't selfish but helping the general team progress. 
One of the greatest set of kills I ever experienced was hearing a motion sensor in my proximity.   I was pinned in a building and as soon as I heard it I froze still, as the sensor keeper beeping. Naturally moments later I hear foot steps of the opposing team. Assuming it's clear. After I heard the motion sensor stop, I decided it was my turn to throw one myself. I noticed two in the building with me, but you can see on the radar that their arrows were pointing outside the building edges, so I quickly ran behind stabbed them both in the back one at a time. At those times I kind of exhale his game gets you pumped.  


Remember Sunset Riders

  I don't think I've been this excited for a a western game since Konami's Sunset RidersI love the level where they're chasing for the train on horse. I wonder what it's going to be like with Rockstar's  game Red Dead Redemption.

I always liked the terrible voice recordings they had during this area of arcade gaming. We have come so far with sound production in games.

Deadwood to Red Dead Redemption

 I've been recently watching the HBO TV Series "Deadwood." I'm nearly halfway through the second season and loving every episode so far. Ironically Red Dead Redemption is actually around the corner. Lately I've been watching some of the trailers for the game and I'm thoroughly impressed. I'll be the first to admit I'm a Grand Theft Auto fan. I consider GTA IV to be possibly the best game of this generation. To see the team make a whole entire western game gets me pumped.

One thing I'm curious about is the soundtrack. Red Dead Revolver had an excellent soundtrack. Since this is a Rockstar developed game, I am excited to hear what music they’ll have in store. Just listen to the soundtrack from the original. 


     It had a good sound like composers like  Ennio Morricone or Jerry Fielding made during the good old western movies. Of course, there aren’t radio stations in western games, so I’m really psyched for just the music in this game how they can presented it. I wouldn’t mind if they did a little style with like Deadwood. Either way, if you’re a fan of Rockstar games. You know that soundtrack is extremely important to them.
