HI! I'm new here! Nov. 6th, 2004 @ 04:56 pm
I just want to say I'm glad I love yoshi. I've loved the little green guy ever since 'super mario world' and 'yoshi's island' came out. He has to be the most awesome character ever created in the history of forever. =D I think he's much better than Mario.

Just another thing to say, I made this small fan site where I put random stuff I think is cool. (I just wanted to make this site just for fun!) I'm starting a page on yoshi fan art. Here's the link for it: http://www.freewebs.com/socalledstuff/yoshi.htm

I had to make this picture in the computer paint program because I don't have a scanner... oh well, I think it still looks good. I hope you enjoy it! Thank you for reading. (^_^)

The Artistic Intent of Future Video Games Aug. 27th, 2004 @ 11:55 pm
The idea for this post was generated in my last post, when I thought of how video game designers and artists would base their games in the future. I believe that video game design is comparable to the history of art, such as painting or sculpting, and by looking at how art developed, we can figure how video games will develop.

Technology has advanced to the point where ever increasingly, recreating reality is possible, from the wind blowing through the grass to the subtle contrasts in color and tone, to the replication of real sounds. This movement to replicate reality is very prevalent in classical art, such as painting or sculpting, and has been the basis for it since humanity could take brush to paper, or chisel to stone.

Humankind has advanced its ability to create and simulate realism in forms such as these, and has also ever-increasingly developed new and better tools with which to accomplish the task. I believe that video game technology has followed the very same path, frought with obvious differences, but considerable similarities. The canvas of video games has been the platforms on which they have been developed; computer technology that has been advancing rapidly since it was created. The brushes and paints of the video game designer are the coding and boolean logic necessary to create an executable program that will work with a given system.

It is my belief that video game designers will reach a point, much like artists have in the past 200 years, where they have effectively replicated any realistic environment, and are basically bored with doing it. But how will they stray from this norm, and still develop games that people will understand and find engaging to play?

I know you've thought of it... Aug. 14th, 2004 @ 12:51 am
Whenever one looks at a pizza missing but two adjacent slices, one can't help but think, somewhere in the vestiges of his mind, something peculiar about it. I know that I have, and I am pretty sure that you have thought it, as well.

The pepperonis are ex pills..er, power pellets!

I beg of any of you out there to tell me you haven't seen the same thing when you look at a pizza!

Thank you! Aug. 12th, 2004 @ 09:06 pm
Hey guys,

It has not even been a week and I'm surprise at all the entries. I'm sue some of you spread the word... and for doing that I say "Thanks a bunch!"

Your passion has inspired me to work hard at reorganizing the site, but I can't do it without your help and support.

Thanks again!

» A Yoshi-Themed Game In The Future
In the heyday; much simpler times, the world of Nintendo has seen such classics that have featured many characters participating in their own active titles. Of course, no one will dispute the dominance of the Links or the Marios of the world, but very rarely has Yoshi seen the "main protagonist" role in Nintendo games. Yoshi had his first prominent role in Super Mario World released for the SNES, and then struck it big when Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island was released. Super Mario World 2 and it's follow-up for the N64 entitled Yoshi's Story were in my opinion, very good games, featuring the most whimsical artistic stylings and also just great gameplay.

Since the release of the Gamecube, Yoshi has seen limited appearance in the newer projects released by Nintendo. Save for a few cameos in Super Smash Brothers Melee, a role in Super Mario Sunshine and the Mario Party series, and some rehashing of the Yoshi games for the Game Boy Advance, Yoshi hasn't had a domain to call his own since the days of Yoshi's Story. Focus has been on showing the amazing capabilities of the latest technologies, and sending the likes of Link and Samus to amazing worlds that we wouldn't have dreamed of in the days of Super Mario World while riding Yoshi's back and having him eat the moles before they dug out of the ground to avoid leaving mole holes on the screen (I'm not the only one who did that, am I?)

The last Yoshi is coming up on being 7 years old, so I, for one, think it's time that Nintendo begin work on another Yoshi-centered game. My question for this burgeoning fan club community is this: What ideas do you think that Miyamoto and the other Nintendo developers should integrate into the next Yoshi-themed game, and what would you like to see done that hasn't been done before?

Heh. I just got another retarded temporary ban on the message board, so I thought I'd come here and make some sort of non-introductory post.

If any of you have been checking my journal lately, then you've already heard this. It's a little something I made in about 10 minutes ... it's a 30-second long MP3, comprising the melodies from two familiar video game songs and the chords from Pachelbel's Canon. And a drum loop.

Yeah. Kinda fun.
