Rock Band 3
I’ve been anticipating Rock Band 3 for a while now, and figured that I’d chronicle my experiences with the game in comic form. I couldn’t imagine how they’d mess up something like Rock Band, but I was sure there would be some changes that I should give mention.

White, Green, Blue and Dead All Over

For those of us who have made the case for violence as art, a staggering lack of evidence has been our biggest downfall. Dismemberment, decapitation, gallons upon gallons of blood; it all rings the wrong bell for people like Roger Ebert and the Red Cross.

But then along comes White, an avant-garde take on painting a portrait in the style of a Jackson Pollock or an angry art major. From first-year students of the Graduate School of Games and Interactive Medias in France, White allows the player to paint a portrait using various weapons to murder anthropomorphic paint balls who giggle and prance along a barren white canvas.

Take for instance my own painting, after the break.

“Hideki, don’t abandon Amaterasu! :< Anyway, this was inspired by 101 Dalmatians believe it or not D: The beginning when Pongo was looking at the dogs pass by.. and then the part at the park :'D aww I love that movie hahah... ANYWAY.. Wanted to do something with Bayonetta in it.. but I didn't want to abandon Amaterasu..."

I don’t think I ever really grasped what made a great image of the day post when I was writing at 4cr, but even with this piece, a day doesn’t do justice to how uniquely cool and fresh the mash up comes across – even Capcom couldn’t resist posting about it today.

Thanks to Ujn Hunter for the tip!

Trying to Catch the Wind: an Interview with Jenova Chen, Part 1

Interview with Jenova Chen

“We should find ourselves indulging in similar daydreams if we started musing under the cone-shaped roof of a wind-mill. We should sense its terrestrial nature, and imagine it to be a primitive hut stuck together with mud, firmly set on the ground in order to resist the wind. Then, in an immense synthesis, we should dream at the same time of a winged house that whines at the slightest breeze and refines the energies of the wind. Millers, who are the wind thieves, make good flour from storms.” – G.B., 1958
