B-b-but what about the ending of SQ2 they did? Where they showed a preview of what SQ3 would look like before the credits rolled?

If they weren't planning to remake it, then why show that at all?

- Watching Death Battles on youtube. Hmm... I wonder if any of the royal family of Daventry would stand a chance...?

- Ahhh! I LOVE when I get awesome ideas for scenes in my stories! But... unless they meet that Mantray with the lopped off stinger again, my scene idea is going to have to wait until Trial by fire. I'll give you a hint: If the enemies can work together, so can the Heroes!

In a word, misocosmia.


In more than a word, well...

-being very, very, very annoyed with my insurance company: the person I spoke to on the phone at the start of the month told me that he would send out the paperwork I need the next day... I called today... they never mailed it... never contacted me to tell me the paperwork important for updating my immigration status wasn't on its way

-practicing violin
-skipping TKD b/c I just don't want to deal with getting up and going over there and dealing with people right now
-wishing I had a pdf printer
Noli me tangere! Nescio ubi fuisti!
Don't touch me! I don't know where you've been!

- Now I'm onto 27 PAGES on KQ5 chapter 6! Oh, quick question btw. Specifically a Four Winds article question: is the name of Prince Herbert's kingdom Grew or Grey? I saw both, unless Grey is supposed to be Alicia's kingdom.

Make that 30 pages, with 6,666 words so far!

I think I have waaaaay too much time on my hands!

- Writing chapter 5 of QFG1 finally! :)

- Hmm... it's 9:55 PM right now, and I usually get up at 7:00 AM for my two classes tomorrow. Should I go to bed or not? I know I need to because I have something important tomorrow, but... I don't really feel sleepy.

I'll have to look over that article again and get back to you. I'm not sure. It was published several months ago.

- Doing homework for Game Design class. Now we're actually making a video game with GameMaker and I've been tasked with providing music and sounds.

It's been harder than I thought, since while I've found good sounds, I haven't found good music aside from the Space Quest series.

*ahem* TSL and Cognition have awesome music! I'm not sure if using it is allowed, though.

Well yes I agree that they do! But... it wouldn't fit the game we're making.

Well, that's quite rich to say. Specially given the background of TSL and what whole POS is about.


Isn't it just a school project, anyways? lol

Well, too late to give suggestions now! The project has already gotten the audio needed for the most part (unfortunately due to a mistake which involved us having to pay for each track, we ended up not using ANY of those tracks I picked!), and I've been changed duties. I'm on sprite duty since Josh has better experience than I do with audio anyway.

Kind of a shame, since wouldn't this be a great Boss Theme for a Space Shooter? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynMin_ZUXrY&list=PL3A7D35BA9390BCB6&index=14&feature=plpp_video

The reason we couldn't use the tracks I found at that one website was because in order to get them you have to sign up and pay. I don't know the reason why we didn't use this one though. Then again, the muic that IS being used is actually pretty good- 8-bit remixes of songs from Tron Legacy.

Well, I was guessing it would be ok, but I didn't want to presume.

Thanks!

-Hmm... should I translate the toymakers lines into actual German just for fun? (yes, Cedric would understand that, and yes, Cedric is the one getting the sled, but he gives it to Graham right afterwards) or should I stick with the Gratuitous German mixed with English like in-game?

- Trying to find the blueprints I made of my college so I can make a map of it in the game.
- WHY DO THE ROBOTS HAVE BLOOD?!!

Edit:  It seems I need to pay attention to how emoticons work, though  ??? would've been more appropriate.

But would the readers understand it? Or is that not important?
