Today I made sushi. Being the lazy pos I am, I may or may not have undercooked the rice by not letting it sit after the rice cooker said it was done, so it didn’t exactly taste as good as it could have.
This weekend’s a long weekend, which means I’ve got a little bit more time. There should be another chapter incoming within the next 24 hours. (It’s already done, and just in editing!)
That said, my thesis defense is scheduled for May 2nd. Shit shit shit shit shit.
There’s going to be a career fair at my school this week. A good number of AAA companies are coming…
I wish I was less busy and had more time to prepare.
San Francisco is a weird city. And I still haven’t recovered from jet lag since I had to jump right back into my usual schedule.
I have, however, seen some success in my newfound hobby: hoarding old cyberstep accounts.
I was honestly stuck between localizing the sword’s name and keeping it. I still can’t decide. It kind of sounds lame in Japanese, but I have the sneaking suspicion that non-native speakers would disagree with me.
This is also probably the last chapter for a little more than a week. I have to leave for a week-long conference on Sunday. I’ll try to churn out something before then, but no promises since I still have to touch up my portfolio.
My business cards arrived today. I tried to stick to a really simple black and white design to make it retain a professional sorta feel, but, seeing them in person, they honestly just feel kind of bland.
Preparing for GDC is tiring. I have to make sure my resume and portfolio are up to date, print business cards, and I even had to make/print a poster for some prize I won.
Welp, here’s to hoping that going gets me employed.
Sorry about the delay, I’ve been pretty busy.
On that note, still looking for people to test and give me feedback on my Starcraft 2 mod. Players of all skill levels will be appreciated. (See last announcement post for details.)
As I’ve mentioned in the note in the chapter, I’m looking for people to test a Starcraft 2 mod I made for the purposes of an assignment.
It’s called “Heroes’ Valley,” and can be found in the in-game arcade if you play in the American and European regions. I need testers of all skill levels, so if you play the game or know someone who does, please do grab a friend and try it out. I’ve been spending a lot of my time looking for testers as opposed to translating, so I’d probably be able to vomit out more chapters if, y’know, I got my homework done.
If you do check it out, please fill out the survey form, which there is a link to in the arcade’s UI.
Edit: SC2 map now published in EU too.
