Happy Friday, all~
Payday is a bittersweet thing. Or, to say, it would be sweeter if we didn't have those, ya know, 'responsibilities.' :3 Like, technically, I could buy that Xbox 360 I've wanted for several months, and just not pay any bills. And rent. Pssshhhht. ^_^
Hmmm....what is going on....Oh! First off, the list of the ten 'animated' films (and I use the term VERY loosely) in the running for the Acadamy Awards has been released. Some of the choices (*cough*Beowulf*cough*) make me (*hack*AlvinandtheChipmunks*wheeze*) want to curl up on the floor and cry. Others, like Persepolis, Ratatouille, and Tekkonkinkreet make me very happy. ^_^
Place your votes, ladies and gents! And God help us all if Aqua Teen Hunger force takes the cake. I, among with the entire artistic community, will declare animation officially dead.
“Alvin and the Chipmunks”
“Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters”
“Meet the Robinsons”
“Shrek the Third”
“The Simpsons Movie”
Hmmmm...speaking of animation (of a different variety), I stumbled across the news that two gaming franchises (one prominent, one an underground cult hit) will be getting their own animated feature/series, respectively.
The first will be the long-loved Castlevania series. I have NO idea what it's supposed to be about, but you can look at the fledgeling production blog here.
Second, and by far my personal favourite, is going to be SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI: PERSONA!!!! WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
I've played every SMT game for the PS2, and even own the original Persona for the PS1. They are my all-time favourite RPG series. Yes, I love them even more than Final Fantasy.
And I like my Final Fantasy.
I found the news on 1Up.com, and this is actually going to be a series based ten years after the events of Persona 3. I am unfortunately not that long into the game (full-time work will do that), but it's a phenomenal gaming experience. Seriously. Go out and buy it. RIGHT NOW. ^_^
But really....I wonder what they're going to do with it?
That's about all I've got right now...Keep it real, ladies and gents - I gotta go work on my demo reel. Job ends next Friday....*sigh* I wanted to grab that special ed. of Assassin's Creed. Maybe another time, Altair. :3
