So 2.1.2019 was a rather interesting day, I was able to visit IGN’s San Francisco’s location, I was made aware of this thanks to Mark Medina of IGN so a big thanks to his post on the event. On the way to the event I also saw Fran Mirabella but I did not want to be that creep that interrupted him while he was on his way to lunch so I simply ignored and kept on walking.

At the meet-up site being outside there were several other individuals lined up, I spoke with only two individuals. Sighs the world of nerds we are so anti-social. Jumping right in we were screened tagged and led upstairs. We were given the tour met several peeps. I took the opportunity to speak to several individuals whose channels I have watched over the years Brian Altano (@agentbizzle) and Destin Legarie. Later at the meeting which was hosted by Mark Medina I was able to ask about their take on Indy game highlights and an example I posted was Hollow knight which got alot of praise by Tom Marks who is also a fan of that game. There were also alot of interesting questions asked by the other attendees and the feedback was wonderful.

This was a great escape and experience for a closing friday, if given the opportunity I would do it again probably way after GDC and E3 as those are probably the hardest time to get a meetup like this.

DAYUM!!! 2018 Smash Bros Collab on Newgrounds!!!


So I finally saw the Dec 2018 Smash Bros Collab and this joint was freaking insane. The animators really went in and did an amazing job. There were varying style and liberty taken with some themes with various characters. There were some with jokes which were really over the top. Some were really touching moments and showed that there are some animators who are amazing at their craft and are able to really convey emotion. There were others that were beyond what I expected to see but all in all these were really well done and I was entertained at the almost 50 mins of run time. You will find this to be one of the finest pieces of collaborations out there from the Newgrounds camp. Please support their page and give them love. Newgrounds gave my work love when there was really no place to post by craft way back in the early web video days. Yeah it dropped Dec 26, 2018.
