Christopher Walken Plays “Alien: Isolation”

Let’s Plays are fun, but they’re usually missing one key element: actor Christopher Walken. Yep, the guy from Pulp Fiction, Deer Hunter, and Saturday Night Live guest hosting has one of the best and most unusual vocal cadences around, so listening to him play videogames is just a little bit better than your average streamer.

Combine that with the latest survival horror game Alien: Isolation, and you’ve got something that will REALLY make you wanna do a Christopher Walken impression.

Should I take that as a yes for public release (I will be following the guidelines listed on your thread, this being the asking for permission if not already granted)? If it is a yes, I will be uploading them into my thread either today or tomorrow, with a link to your post on the Justicar (I did the Commando myself to match with the version I made for Morinth).

Yep sounds good babe =)

Hello again Otte! May I have your permission to convert your version of Liara's Silver armour to the multiplayer Asari Justicar? Also, do you happen to have any recommendations on sites for texture resources? Thanks in advance!

Sure, as long as you follow my permission rules for public release (if that’s what you are planning to do).

I just google really, I have built up quite a supply of resource images/textures now but I regularly end up using google image search for free stock, especially on metal and cloth textures. Sometimes I’ll photograph my own.

As the banner says, I reached 1,000 followers recently. When I first made this blog, I expected to get maybe 35. I know that this milestone is tiny to some people, but it honestly means a lot to me that so many people stumbled across my little blog, liked what they saw and decided to give it a follow.

So as a big thank-you to everyone who has either stayed with me throughout the years, or have just recently followed me, I have decided to do a giveaway!

I will be giving $20 CAD worth of Steam games each to two winners. If your game(s) cost a few dollars more than your reward, I can be flexible and give you the little extra. If you’re not a PC gamer, we can try to work something out, but it would be a lot easier for me if we stuck to Steam games.

The Rules:

  • Must be following me (new followers are welcome).
  • Likes and Reblogs count as entries.
  • NO giveaway blogs. I will be checking.
  • If you win, you have to give me your Steam name, or shipping information if you decide you want something else.

This giveaway ends Saturday, November 1st I’ll be using Random.org to choose the winners. Remember to keep your ask box open. If I don’t get a reply from a winner within 24 hours, I’ll give the prize away to someone else.

Good luck!

I got a four, what did you get?

I left Doctor Who because I could not get along with the senior people. I left because of politics. I did not see eye-to-eye with them. I didn’t agree with the way things were being run. I didn’t like the culture that had grown up, around the series. So I left, I felt, over a principle.

I thought to remain, which would have made me a lot of money and given me huge visibility, the price I would have had to pay was to eat a lot of shit. I’m not being funny about that. I didn’t want to do that and it comes to the art of it, in a way. I feel that if you run your career and– we are vulnerable as actors and we are constantly humiliating ourselves auditioning. But if you allow that to go on, on a grand scale you will lose whatever it is about you and it will be present in your work.

If you allow your desire to be successful and visible and financially secure – if you allow that to make you throw shades on your parents, on your upbringing, then you’re knackered. You’ve got to keep something back, for yourself, because it’ll be present in your work. A purity or an idealism is essential or you’ll become– you’ve got to have standards, no matter how hard work that is. So it makes it a hard road, really.

You know, it’s easy to find a job when you’ve got no morals, you’ve got nothing to be compromised, you can go, ‘Yeah, yeah. That doesn’t matter. That director can bully that prop man and I won’t say anything about it’. But then when that director comes to you and says ‘I think you should play it like this’ you’ve surely got to go ‘How can I respect you, when you behave like that?’

So, that’s why I left. My face didn’t fit and I’m sure they were glad to see the back of me. The important thing is that I succeeded. It was a great part. I loved playing him. I loved connecting with that audience. Because I’ve always acted for adults and then suddenly you’re acting for children, who are far more tasteful; they will not be bullshitted. It’s either good, or it’s bad. They don’t schmooze at after-show parties, with cocktails.

Turning a straight character gay or making a white character into a different skin color is just as bad as turning a gay character straight and whitewashing. It’s not representation, it’s making a character something they’re not just to please you. I want representation, but this is not it.

I see we need the ‘bowl of M&Ms’ metaphor again.
Two bowls are on a table. One is overflowing with M&Ms. The other has maybe twenty at most. Take M&Ms out of the one that’s overflowing and add them to the other bowl, you have made no significant change to the overflowing bowl and have given more to the bowl with very little, taken the slightest step towards making them have equal amounts. THIS is what it is like in taking a white or straight (or both) character and making them something else. To those with the representation of the overflowing bowl, this makes no difference because, in this case, the in-game representation is unchanged. But to those without the representation, now there is one more character who offers that representation that wasn’t there before, even if they weren’t said to be that representation before. The thing is, we’d rather have that support in whatever it is we’re looking for representation from, rather than create it ourselves, but with such a gap of equality on the matter, we HAVE to make up headcanons and reinterpret things because of the heavy lack of representation.

I can sympathize with what this confessor is saying. On the other hand I also understand the counter-argument, to clarify:Obviously I see that people do this because it’s most often the only way to be represented. I understand this and on a personal level I absolutely cannot judge this, ever. Your game is your own as is your chosen experience. As a general principle however, and this is from a completely different angle obviously as you’re not defending representation and people’s right to choose from this angle but canonical truth and the characters themselves, it could very well be considered wrong by some and there would logically be people that feel strongly about both angles to an extend that they might write the above confession. The confessor might be fully aware of the problem with representation and are touched by it but they condemn this method if not represented officially because that is not how they want to see themselves or others represented. This would be a personal preference.
Now I’ve had a look at the tags for this post. When someone says “I care about representation but I don’t want it like this” and this somehow translates into “I’m privileged and I don’t understand what the problems with representation really mean” a whole bunch of assumptions are being thrust upon this person’s character based on a statement that’s too meager to base them on. I think the real pitfall with these confessions is, they are just too short to properly convey what someone thinks/is feeling and the depth/origin of that feeling or thought. You can disagree with this person, but don’t call them something you can’t judge them being. It helps nobody (especially not the cause) if you can’t look at this from all angles and allow yourself some distance to properly address it. We just don’t know what sparked the confession to begin with but often enough they are made by people trying to convey a feeling they know will polarize opinion because they touch on delicate subjects and it would never be something they’d say out loud because people are often more likely to jump in the offensive than listen and converse about it normally. That often seems to devolve into “hit and run” statements like these.
In my perception the confessor would be considered ‘wrong’ for openly judging another individuals coping method, even though I can understand the underlying reason they are against it. It’s OK for something to not be for you but you cannot judge another for doing and thinking a different thing. Normally you’d have such a conversation with a friend and they would point this out to you which hopefully would, in the future, change the way you word your opinion and you would be better for it. It’s simply something people have to be taught to be made aware of. Remember that people have to mature into being able to leave ample room for the opinions of others, that takes both time and consideration, whether or not it is a tender subject.

how can i import .mesh file (it's an extension) into 3ds max (2011 if it is important)?
Anonymous

Have a look here:

Also, google is your friend. I’ve never done .mesh imports into 3DS myself, looks like XNALara has official support for import into Blender so if the above does not work, you can always look that up and export from Blender as an obj which you can then bring into 3DS.

If anyone else has experience and/or better advice, feel free to pitch in.
