So I usually don't get too excited over video games, but this one has me somewhat excited for this summer. http://www.battlefield-heroes.com/ One of of the things I really like about this game is the style and design. I love the cartoon look. I know I am a big dorky kid but I love it. The next thing that interest me about this game is that it is free. They are using a advert model where the ads our on their website and not actually in the game. Then I guess they will also have things to buy for your character but not give you a weapon advantage. I like this quote: "The game has a "cartoon-feel" and has been made simpler to play, with more emphasis on participation and fun than skill and strategy. " I am a big fan of fun. One way they will do this is only pair you up against people with the same ranking so you have more fun and aren't always getting slaughtered. So come this summer everyone can give this a try.

Well this is just another sketch I turned into a vector image in flash. It has nothing to do with Monday. Today starts a new week. Hopefully it will be a good one. I hope to get some good exercise in this week. I only lost 1 pound last week and I would like to lose more than that this week. I was sick the previous week but luckily it didn't hurt me to much. Not sure what else I got going this week. My buddy Jared has a birthday this week so we will probably go to lunch for that. I hope you all have a great Monday.

Yesterday I felt a lot better so I went out and watched Spiderwick. I had heard of the books but never did get a chance to read them. But I have to say I enjoyed the movie a lot. I will be sure to add this one to my collection. My only concern is that is is a children's book and it has these scary goblins and orcs. So for some kids I think it might be a little scary. The story was good and the visuals where excellent. I totally recommend this one, but just be warned it might be scarey for the young ones.

So I decided to get back into flash. I used this sketch from one of my favorite artists Scott Johnson. It was fun recreating this image and coloring it in Flash. I hope to do more and also I am working on my own little webcomic just for fun. I will share more of that later.

Today my video iPod broke. It is most unfortunate, as I enjoyed it so. It was my loyal companion as I worked out at the gym. Somedays I didnt want to work out when I forgot it. My music and ipod have made workouts much more enjoyable.
So now my dilema, do I buy a new one or repair this one? On one side if I repair it it will most likely need a harddrive replacement. And that will cost $100-200. If I bought a new one, I could get a nano which is 180ish. Though the screen is smaller and it doesnt hold as much. So for now I am music less during work outs. Very unfortunate indeed.
