First, I figured I should mention what we have going on this week. Currently we're hard at work making content for the next mini-planet that I'm hoping will feature George Lowe. I've st olen Jemini to help design backgrounds for it while I'm trying to get a playable obstacle course with your game avatars, granted they'll be in a special suit. Should be fun but in the mean time, we need to slow down the main weekly releases but we're still going to be providing some awesomeness. Such as this week, we're releasing more item inventory slots to EVERYONE, 10 more to be exact. So that should be awesome. We're also making a few new items for your Starships, rugs specifically, and the art museum is getting it's new gallery. I'm also hoping to make the arcade versions of the Galactimecha stuff and the Planetary Defender game so look for that.
Next week I'm hoping to get the SC mech out as it sounds like Arklen is nearing completion. I haven't come up with a name yet but I will be checking your name suggestion thread more thoroughly soon. I do want to try and make this a defensive build since some of you have been hoping for that and since every other model has been MOAR POWAR! Anywho, a few questions!
Lord Kashmir asks: How did you get started at AE? Do you have any facial hair? If you could have your NPC do any one thing in MQ just to mess stuff up, what would it be? Do staff members use thier game names when talking to each other? What is your favorite thing you got for Christmas?
I saw an ad in Craigslist for a full time animator and I applied and became the MQ animator. ||| I DO have facial hair. I tend to fail at keeping up with my shaving but I try to have one of those fake jawlines. Not the paper thin ones but the thicker like, half-inch to an inch jawline. ||| Turn MQ into a sing-along. ||| We change it up from time to time. Sometimes we do, sometimes we don't. ||| Sonic Colors.
shadowdragonshadow asks: What do yall like to do/go when on a vacation? What planet would you go to if you lived in the MQ Universe?
I like going to Missouri and canoe down Jack's Fork River and the Upper Current River in the Ozarks. Beautiful place with nice clean and clear water. Also lots of turtles to catch. Especially tiny ones. They're adorable. ||| Zargon probably. Seems like it could be fun there.
Homecat52 asks: 1.) In a no-holds barred battle between you and Cysero who would win and why? 2.) What is your NPC's powers? (example: Artix has undead-killing powers, Walric is a powerful arch-mage, and J6 is a sharpshooter.)
Probably Cysero because I actually have no idea how powerful he is so I would probably under-estimate him and end up face down in the dirt. ||| Molecule manipulation I guess is the best way to put it.
DARK cal asks: 1) what is your most embarrassing moment? 2) if you where a food what food would you be? 3) where is your favorite place to go on holiday? 4) who is your favorite author?
I'm not sure. Whatever it is, it's probably not appropriate. It's hard for me to be embarrassed. ||| Probably a taco. I've eaten enough to become one. ||| Bunker Hill Ranch in Missouri. It's a little place deep on a mountain side by a river (Jack's Fork). Don't go there much anymore. ||| Dr. Seuss I guess.
LeoMart asks: Could you show us a picture of how you look without your bag? Also what car do you drive?
I probably can eventually but not at the moment. At least, my real face, Not so much my in-game face. ||| Blue 2000 Ford Mustang V6. 140,000+ miles on it. It's not happy lately.
Lord Kashmir ALSO asks: 1)Do you guys have steam (Application)? 2)If you do which games do you have on it? 3)Favourite zombie game? 4)Funniest thing that's happened to you?
Yes I do! But it's my personal username so I think I'll be keeping it secret. The username has nothing to do with Korin or AE so it's probably no good to try and guess it. I do love Steam though. ||| Battlefield Bad Company 2, Mirror's Edge, Left 4 Dead 2, GTA4, Audiosurf, OrangeBox, Red Faction Guerilla, Beyond Good & Evil, Half-Life 2, Far Cry 2, Dead Space, BioShock, STALKER and the Serious Sams. Bought a lot of those during their huge discounts they were having over Christmas Break. ||| Probably Left 4 Dead actually. Haven't played many zombie games but I'm having a lot of fun on the PC version. Moreso than the 360 version. ||| Too many to count.
