SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Final Day- The White Flag

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Final Day- The White Flag

It’s the final day of SixTAY Days of Writing and this year I didn’t even make it half way. I started late, couldn’t come with any ideas for articles and essentially gave up. It’s not like I didn’t try, I just don’t think I tried hard enough.

So for this final article I’m going to point out all the mistakes I made this year so I, and anybody else who fell flat on their faces, can avoid...

SixTay Days of Writing 2019 Day 26- A Valiant Effort

SixTay Days of Writing 2019 Day 26- A Valiant Effort

Whelp, there aren’t that many days left in July and I’m only 26/60 in terms of articles. I have been trying. Ironically this year I’m not having some colossal catastrophe that’s been barring me from working, I’ve just seriously had no ideas. Which is okay, I guess. When you work creatively, sometimes you just run out of ideas. Happens to the best of us. And I much rather run out of ideas about...

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day 28- Kaiju Crush Update

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day 28- Kaiju Crush Update

Been a while since I’ve brought up Kaiju Crush, but that’s largely because I’ve been working so much on it. Act Two of Titania’s route is done (finally) and I’m working on Act Three. Writing has slowed down again as I gel some ideas, and I’ve been working on the additional art I need for her route. The title card and one of the backgrounds is done, then I need an additional sprite, object...

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day 27- Our Obsession With Boxes

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day 27- Our Obsession With Boxes

The other day I got really lucky, when I was in Wal-Mart I found a My Little Pony the Movie Storm King Fan Series statue on clearance. The Fan Series figures from Hasbro are pretty freaking sweet, and this one marks the third villain I own. I love these things, but I’m in a bit of a conundrum as to whether I should take it out of the box or not. I’m having this debate a lot recently. And I...

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day 25- Games That Should Come to the Switch

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day 25- Games That Should Come to the Switch

It seems as Nintendo has finally done it, created a machine that since they built it, they will come. All sorts of games are being ported and released for the console, from AAA games to niche rhythm and visual novel games. Additionally, lots of classic games that were never on a Nintendo system are migrating their way to the Switch. The other day I saw that classic RPGs Baldur’s Gate and...

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day 24- Ghost in the Shell 2017

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day 24- Ghost in the Shell 2017

The live action Ghost in the Shell was extremely controversial when it came out in 2017, with many people furious that the lead role of Major Motoko Kusanagi was being white washed and cast with Scarlet Johanson. Like for many other anime fans, this was a dealbreaker, and when it was in theaters I didn’t watch it, or buy it when it was on DVD. Which didn’t seem a huge loss since the majority...

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day Two- Now Presenting...Something

Okay, still not 100% sold on what I’m going to work on, theme-wise, so today I’m just going to talk about what I’ve been working on in general in the past few days.

Mostly at my house it’s been spring cleaning. My house is in serious need of repair (has been for years, honestly) so that takes up about 65% of my time for the moment, followed by simply getting sidelined by my disability and...

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day Thirteen- Video Game Funk

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day Thirteen- Video Game Funk

I have to admit, it’s been a really long time now since I’ve sat down and actually played a video game. It seems like I’ve been doing everything else but. It’s not really a lack of time, because my evenings are largely free. Lord knows it’s not a lack of games, as I still have a backlog dating back to the PSOne era as I keep scooping up vintage games when I find them. I just don’t know why,...

Developer Diary Day Thirty-Three

Developer Diary Day Thirty-Three

The good news is I have seemed (at least on the surface) to have fixed what wasn’t working, and now it seems all the routes work. This will totally be something I’ll need to have play tested at least a few times just to make sure that it, yes, does in fact work.

So it’s back to backgrounds. The second one is in the 80%-ish done zone. The art has been inked and flatted and I’ve been working...

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day Eleven- Late to the Party with E3 Impressions

I’m still playing catch-up both with these articles and all the gaming/geek world news so that means I’m going to talk about E3 even though that happened last week. Well, just because news travels a lot faster these days doesn’t mean the subject is entirely irrelevant.

For the most part I didn’t see a lot that rang my bells. A remake of Trial of Mana for both the Switch and PS4 sounds cool,...

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day 24- Worlds I’d Like to See in Kingdom Hearts

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day 24- Worlds I’d Like to See in Kingdom Hearts

Kingdom Hearts 3 has been out for a while now, and while some new DLC is coming out later this year, it’s pretty much been confirmed that we won’t be getting any new very significant content with it in the form of new worlds. So thinking ahead here are a list of Disney worlds that I hope will appear in some form in upcoming Kingdom Hearts games.

Moana is pretty much already custom...

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day 23- Shows I’d Like Rebooted

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day 23- Shows I’d Like Rebooted

I’ve been watching Voltron: Legendary Defender recently. I got into it via osmosis from seeing gifs and art posted by mutuals on Tumblr. I vaguely remember the original Voltron (it came before my time but I’d see parts of reruns at like 6am in syndication) but the new version looked cool, and it was by the same studio that did Avatar the Last Airbender. I definitely enjoy it and it got me to...

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day 22- I'm so behind...

It’s halfway through the month, I’m 8 days behind, totally out of ideas and have writer’s block.

So how’s it going for y’all?

Developer Journal Day Thirty-Eight

Developer Journal Day Thirty-Eight

Line art for the latest background is done and now I’m in the middle of coloring. I’m hoping to be done in the next day or so. Mostly at this point it’s lots of little detail work. All this setup will pay off in the long run because it won’t take too much to shade everything, and that tends to take the most time in all my other drawings. Just need to keep working at it, and then it will be...

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day Twenty-One-Being an Aughts Anime Fan

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day Twenty-One-Being an Aughts Anime Fan

A cache of 00-era manga made its way to my house the other day, and as I read these old Tokyo Pop releases, I’m having another bout of nostalgia, so today I’m going to tell you what it was like to be an anime fan from the late nineties to the mid-2000s.

Before the internet, most anime fans sort of stumbled into each other through a kind of kismet or happenstance. Anime was hard to find and...

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day Twenty- Disney Sequels

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day Twenty- Disney Sequels

Still going through my movies and I’ve been sorting through my Disney animated features and looking back at all the sequels that got released for them. Back in the 2000s, Disney was cashing in on their most popular animated movies by making loads of direct-to-video ‘sequels’. While many were actually sequels, taking place after the original movie ended, many were known as ‘in-betweenquels’...

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day Nineteen- Identity Crisis

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day Nineteen- Identity Crisis

Got incredibly lucky at the thrift store the other day and found a huge cache of comic books and manga. Found the first three volumes of Fruits Basket, volumes 3 and 4 of Soul Eater NOT! and volume one of Karin/Chibi Vampire. I also found DC’s Identity Crisis.

Identity Crisis was a mini-series from 2004-05, years before the New 52/Rebirth shenanigans. It was met with mixed reaction. Some...

SixTAY Days of Writing Day Eighteen- Such is Progress

SixTAY Days of Writing Day Eighteen- Such is Progress

Doc’s Video Games is closed. I was never a big fan of Doc’s, but I’m still very sad to see it go. Doc’s Video Games was a local used game shop. Their prices were too high on their games for my taste, but they were independently owned and operated. The real tragedy is that Doc’s is the latest victim in the indie used game market in the Denver area. A few years ago there were dozens spread...

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day Fourteen- KFC

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day Fourteen- KFC

I have come down with a serious case of KFC—Kentucky Fried Cranium. I’ve been working on Kaiju Crush almost non-stop, as well as these SixTAY Days articles and my brain is wiped. It’s a shame because I am soooo close to finishing the second act of Titania’s route as well. I only need to write one scene. That’s it. One scene separates me from that milestone. I’m even starting to tinker with...

SixTAY Days of Writing 2019 Day Seventeen- The Disney Frustration

Was at Wal-Mart the other day picking up a prescription and when I was waiting for it to be filled, I wandered through the movies and DVDs and saw something that drove me nuts: packaged collections of various Disney cartoons such as Kim Possible and the original Ducktales. What could possibly be infuriating about seeing collections of Disney shows? After all, various studios eventually...
