A message from a consumer.... well thats me.
----------------------my gameing life, the good and the bad-----------------------------
So i first got into guitar hero back in college when my roommate got me hooked on it and it was great. So great i bought the game when i finished college and got my home town friends hooked on it. Well with me low on money, an awsome diploma in software engineering technology that im yet to put to awsome use, and a few broken and outdated pc's by my side and only a nintendo wii in which to pass the time sometimes. Sure i could be playing guitar hero but it looks so bad on my parents 50+inch tv, and the wii is only fun for short party times with the occasional friends and relatives. Big tv's are great if you got proper working equipment to go with it, HD ha you need a degree in HD to get some of this equipment working, i thought i did.
Basicly what im getting at is i miss the good old days. What were those days you ask. The good days consisted of a wicked gameing rig that i could kick the pants off of any CS Source player on the net, play high quality adventure/action games with stunning visuals. Gigs and gigs of music at my disposal even though i would only like 1 gigs worth of music. At the time the wii came into the picture and was sweet with everyone so involved and so much fun happening.
How did it get to this, well let me tell you.
Sure the console is cheep thats why so many people have it, but no one can resist stunning graphics of a ps3 or pc. I still dont regret getting it, well actually it was a christmas gift but i still like it today, i lent all my games to a friend though. So my gameing machine died on me a month back and couldent do anything, took off to a gameing show in toronto and meet some dude that gave me his computer, It's only a bit better than an old palm pilot i used to play with but it lets me do word stuff like this editorial im writeing here.
Today i write to you on that oversized palm pilot with my gameing keyboard and mouse laying to the side collecting dust, only to ask not for a hand out like an alienware pc, i dont even want an average pc by todays standards. What i seek is the ability to catch my own fish. I want the best dam pc out there, i also want a PS3, XBOX360, and the latest and greatest rock band 2 and guitar hero world tour. But at the same time i dont want people to hand them to me to feel sorry or nothing.
What i want is a job, ya i dont live in some American gameing capital of the world like LA or California etc... But it would be quite the dream to get into the gameing industry while im young too. An old saying turned gameing style "You can give me a game and i can play it for a week, or you can get me a job and i can buy and play forever."
It would be a miracle if someone called me up sometime in the neer future and said "come work for sony or gamespot etc.." Im no hardcore game designer although i did make my own 3D game with a little help. I got it on my blog your all welcome to play it. I have a wide range of programming knowldge stretching all over the place im a super computer user at anyones disposal. I like to think of myself as a hardcore gamer in all areas of gameing. A fairly recent saying "to truly pwn, you must pwn at all games." I no longer gear myself to one game anymore now im all over the place. hay a g/f would be a plus too LOL
-----------------------Rambleing on about another life-----------------------------
To get off my life for a minute i would like to talk to you about a parralel universe where only one gameing company existed. If this company existed they would have a console with the hardware of a PS3, the fun characters of the WII, and the community of the XBOX360. Just imagine ALL the best qualitys of the 3 consoles out there into one. What would that mean you ask, no more clutter, you are truly connected to the world like a home computer. All games come out for PC and the Universe Console, we will call it. Its software will update constantly, it will be able to play almost any format of disc from CD's to Blue rays, dvds and HD's. Darn it give it a clock on the front and let it be your rogers box too even. Yes the console will be expensive but heck consider the power of the console and when the next universe console would come out relative to the current one. lets say the universe console is 900$ wow crazy but the next time they release a new console would be in close to 8-10 years. Thats great then, why, because. Thinking logically and resonably plausable here.
The console would have Controls like the 360 or ps3 which ever wins best controller award of all time, games would include wii remote style controllers for those who really want arcade style games. What i find is half the games out there on the wii really dont use the wii remote all too well, i mean swing to attack, and no matter which way i swing the attack is the same, well the B button could have saved the alot of trouble too geez. And game companys could have more employees focusing on makeing games that are based off movies Actually fun to play and not wipped together with super glue and a cheep form of duct tape. All other games are fine btw. And companies in compitiion with each other like rock band and guitar hero would actually work together and basicly put there darn games together into ONE. now that be sweet.
-----------------------------------What i have to say about tomorrows games (E3 related)-----------------
Well they all seem like there comeing together, slowly game designers are being replaced with architects, kung fu masters, full length feature films, steven hauking, and maby even aliens.
Its only a matter of time before, we turn into the kids from that back to the future movie where they say "you play that with your hands HA HA HA HA".
But for now, im dam proud to play with my hands, and im dam proud of the games that give you the ability to shoot a GUN at people and get away with it. Digitally obviously and not like that family guy episode where death was out for the count LOL
-----------------------A final word i leave you all with today--------------------------------
My potential for this world is great, sure my writeing is not so great but heck no ones perfect. I have been finding that i am getting more and more popular everyday, i even had my name read out on gamespot E3 Live LOL :P my popularity keeps on growing. And whats awsome is i dont have a million favs that i need to satisfy..... yet. LOL
It would be a cool thing to see someone in the industry writeing articles all the time with horrible grammer and spelling, imagine how many fans that dude might just get with his flaws. People like people for there flaws more than they like them for there perfections.
ya im lazy but my passion is gameing and i will come to my passion when it calls and needs me like a hot danzel in distress.
i just had my question answered on gamespot today in the far cry video around 15:50 check it out
oh and a job would bring this story to a happy ending. my resume just ask or i can be found somewhere on monster and workopolis.
just keepin it real later all (good and bad comments all welcome here... for every 3 good ones 1 bad one is allowed LOL :P)
