Lost Episode 3

So episode 3 of lost is going to launch a bit later than expected. This next episode requires a lot of actors and a lot of visual effects. I won't give to much away but the next episode of lost is going to have a ship in it and there for I need to animate the ship sailing. The crew of the ship consist of four people and in some shots we have Cosmo and Jim in there as well so we would normally need 6 different actors for this particular scene which is a ton of people and there would be a lot of lag. To conquer over this, we will be using a green screen. I am going to shoot Mick in front of a green screen as all the different characters, and then I'll take that footage, apply the green screen effect, and then put all the characters into the shot on the ship. So in actuality we only need 1-3 people to film a scene with 6 or more characters in it. The green screen effects I'm still mastering so this is why it may be some time before we can publish episode 3 because everything needs to look perfect and there is a lot of room for errors. Anyway hope you guys will comment below with your feedback on this and I hope you enjoy episode 3 when it launches!

News

So not to many updates this week so I'll just condense everything into one little paragraph:

The new schedule has been working out well but over the summer you lose track of time so the schedule is getting... floppy. I've already missed one Kotor Tuesday and like a months worth of portal and I'm sure a pirates thursday with a few late uploads here and there. Sorry : ( Anyway I'm still hanging onto the schedule just so that you guys don't go the whole summer without a video to watch but don't expect the uploads to be right on and know that I'll probably miss a video here and there. Anyway another reason for the upload times being a day late (minecraft mondays going up on tuesdays) is because my processor is practically fried. My friend convinced me to get a dual core AMD when we bought the computer. Dual cores are fine if all your doing is gaming but I need to record videos and run the games at the same time and on top of that I would like to eventually be able to render out videos while recording and gaming so a dual core will not do. I'm trying to get a part time job somewhere so I can pay for a quad core so I'll let you guys know how that goes. Anyway if I do get that job it will also pay for SWTOR and all the other games coming out in the fall. For the up coming week Minecraft Beta 1.7 should be coming out soon and that has pistons so I will deffinatly be ready to make a ton of videos with them in it. That about does it for this week so thanks for reading!

Weekly Update

So as far as updates go we'll basically be talking about E3 and the new Schedule and how that has worked out so far.

GAMING NEWS
Now then, let's get started! E3 so far has been a blast and I am really looking forward to the fall/winter season of Gaming! At E3 they announced that Halo 4 is under development and they are looking at a Winter of 2012 release. This game is being made not by Bungie, but by 343 Industries. 343 Industries was created by Microsoft for the soul purpose of making Halo games and they helped in the development of Halo 3. The game is going to start off the new Halo Trilogy that takes place in deep space with The Chief as the main character. It will no doubt include great multiplayer and forging features as we have come to expect from them. I will deffinatly get this game when it comes out and maybe make commentaries for you guys if you wish. Along with Halo 4, Microsoft announced that they will be remaking "Halo CE" which was the first in the franchise. They are remastering the Campaign and are throwing in multiplayer as well. I do hope that Theater mode will come back so that I'll be able to make some awesome Machinimas for you guys! This game will be coming out on Novemeber 15th and I will be first online to play that.

With that, EA released tons of cool information about Battlefield 3. Battlefield is a great game and in my opinion better then any call of duty. Call of Duty is going down the tubes and anyone who still likes Call of Duty is just a "Shallow" gamer as I like to call them. Battlefield is an infinatly better experience and so I will be getting that right away when it comes out. Long live EA.

Modern Warfare 3 had a ton of new content at E3 and that game will suck. Reason being, all the Call of Duty games have gotten progressively worse and worse over the years. Why would that change now just because there is a battle in NYC? Who gives a crap? I live there why do I want to see it blown to bits? You Cod Mod 3 Fans can complain your pathetic cases below.

Star Wars the Old Republic also had a new trailer and that thing was freaking amazing! I have decided to do an entire Let's Play of the Jedi Knight Class so you can all look forward to that!

Assassins Creed: Revelations also had some gameplay and I will deffinatly get that game, and hopefully do a Let's Play with that as well. Ubisoft along with Bioware is my favorite company and I love all their games. Ubisoft also announced Far Cry 3 which hopefully will be on PC and my friends and I will play that.

Mass Effect 3 was talked about at the EA press conference. It looks pretty sweet and is scheduled to release on March 12, 2012 which is Malgus's Birthday lol.

I will also be getting Batman: Arkam City. Done deal.

Media News
I'm looking forward to Halo CE so I can make some cool Machinimas for you guys. Other than that, same as last week.

Other News
The new schedule we're using has worked out very well and all seem to be satisfied so for now no changes will be made.


Hope everyone enjoyed this Update and I hope to see you back here next week!

Live long and prosper,
