Real first name: John Age: 21 MMCafe Board Function: Stink up the draw board, weird people out, lurk when no epic-sized, long-winded, boring response is possible, slander Siren. Personal website: [URL=http://www.livejournal.com/users/jlg1/]ANGSTJOURNAL[/URL] What you do in real life: College Student Location: Chicago (Home) or Iowa City (College) Nationality: US/White Primary Language: English Link to a pic of yourself: [URL=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v457/JLG/Sketches/General/me.jpg]Close enough[/URL] Favorite Music: Jazz, Rock, Soundtracks, World, Folk Favorites (that I can immediately think of): Anime: Lain, FLCL, Azumanga Daioh... Manga: Battle Angel Alita, Nausicaa, Sgt. Frog... US TV Shows: The Prisoner, Twin Peaks, Teen Titans, Daily Show, ReBoot, Space Ghost:Coast to Coast Rant About Something: I'm ticked off with the game and movie industry's torrid love affair with 3D. It's especially going to be hard for the US movie industry (well, at least animation) when everyone finds out they all can't be Pixar. And since most studios shut down their traditional animation studios, when the 3D gimmick wears off and everyone's tired of the over-saturation of CGI, I think it'll hit the US animation industry hard, and leave places like Europe and Korea with burgeoning homegrown animation to rise up (and of course Japan, which not only has a big animation industry, but has a strong foothold already in the US). But the game industry is bleaker, since technical specs rule the day and people gush for "realism" over style. Though if the complaints are true that "professional-looking" games are becoming too pricey for non-beheamoth companies to produce, maybe we can see a 2D roots revival among indie developers (hell, [URL=http://www.studiotrophis.com/wc.php]The White Chamber[/URL] is a free, point and click game and it's great - even was praised in the NYTimes). But then again, I'm hardly an expert on the issue, so who knows, someone could put me in my place about a number of things.
