Korra Book 3 finale is online right now! These are some backgrounds from this season and some comps from the finale. I did the paint. layout was most likely either Angela Sung or William Niu.
this is videogames. this is what i get. this is unacceptable. this is not okay. terrorist. never again, you hear me? never again. this is videogames. this is your audience. to every aspiring game developer out there: don’t. give up. it’s not worth it. nothing is worth this. give up on your dreams. they are actually nightmares. just don’t do it. RUN AWAY
This is what Phil Fish tweeted shortly before deleting his Twitter account.
this is what i get. this is unacceptable.
Nobody deserves what Phil has received online. He has been harassed, mocked, torn to shreds, called terrible names, and had his privacy invaded.
He is (or, at least, was) an incredibly talented, passionate, and persistent artist and game designer. And he will be missed in gaming, by myself and by countless other people who loved his work.
this is videogames. this is your audience.
I do not know Phil, and I have tried to never make any sort of judgment on his character or his decisions. I do, however, believe that he is wrong.
It is shameful and terrible what Phil has faced as a public figure and game creator. He has experienced the worst side of the gaming community. But this does not represent the whole of gaming. Gaming is as diverse as humanity itself, and, I believe, is greater than just those who drove Phil away.
to every aspiring game developer out there: don’t. give up. it’s not worth it. nothing is worth this.
I looked up to Phil Fish.
Fez is one of my favorite games. I spent days making a Gomez cosplay and spent hours with a hot, stuffy box on my head just to show how much I love it. Indie Game: The Movie gives me hope and inspiration as an aspiring artist, storyteller, and game designer every time I watch it.
I was saddened when Fez II was cancelled, but I held out hope that Phil would rejoin gaming and lend his talents to make something beautiful again.
give up on your dreams. they are actually nightmares. just don’t do it. RUN AWAY
But now I have given up. Not on game development or my artistic aspirations, but on my dream that Phil would make another game - my dream that I could look up to him, as someone who undertook great challenges in pursuit of their dreams, and ultimately came out successful. I have given up on my dream of being able to point to Phil and say, “That guy inspires me. That guy is the benchmark I’m shooting for.”
I still love Fez. I still want to be a game developer. But I feel like something’s been lost.
Phil, I wish you the best of luck in whatever you pursue next. Maybe you’ll make custom socks or something.
In the wake of her father’s death, some very cruel people sent disturbing messages to zeldawilliams. I found out that she is trying to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Hospital—a charity both her and her father have supported for a long time.
I thought maybe it would be a nice gesture if we could send some love her way and also help some kids in the process. I think that would be a fitting tribute and it might counter the internet awfulness she had to endure.
Behind the Scenes of Richard Linklater’s Boyhood
How I imagine it went down
- C.S. Lewis: I made you a character in my book!
- J.R.R. Tolkien: OMG me too!
- Lewis: You're the man who created the wardrobe that leads to Narnia!
- Tolkien: ...
- Lewis: Who am I?
- Tolkien: A tree
- Lewis: ............
- Tolkien: But, like, a cool tree
"Why would you want to save the galaxy?!"
"Cause I’m one of the idiots who lives in it!"
Just got back from this movie and it was like everything I’ve ever wanted in a movie. Except I feel a weird tinge of disappointment for some reason. Maybe it’s a sort of hype-letdown?
Eh, whatever. YOU SHOULD ALL GO SEE IT.
“There were some people who didn’t like the wolf scene. In particular one very important person. And he said, I don’t understand what this scene is doing in the movie. And I would always say to him, I’m not cutting it. That scene is why I’m making the movie.” - Wes Anderson
"And we stop and we see a wolf on a distant hill, and it’s a really beautiful, beautiful scene. It’s like so heart-warming because it’s just a beautiful moment between these foxes and little animals and this really like mysterious wolf who we’ve heard about the entire movie and who doesn’t talk in this scene and he’s not wearing clothes. He’s kind of, he represents I guess, the wild. He’s a wild wolf and animal, and it’s a beautiful moment where they have this great connection, and in that moment, it really like to me the point of that scene is let’s keep on being free. Let’s keep on being animals. And it’s such an uplifting moment, and like when I’ve seen it with audiences, a bunch of people break into huge cheers and hooting. It’s such an awesome, awesome scene. It really just blows my mind." - Jason Schwartzman
