Ken Kinnison's Blog

 
Pretty much an amateur game developer always trying to move up the rungs. I've worked with C++, Direct X, a little OpenGL, C#, XNA among other languages and more business related skills. In addition to the technical side I also write and design. With writing my goal is story that stands on its own, but accounts for the special requirements/restrictions of gameplay. Story should drive the gameplay, but shouldn't get in the way of it. With design I've been analyzing, taking apart, putting back together, and then ignoring it and doing what I was going to do anyway. My wife and I are working as a team to forge our own worlds, and allow the player to make them their own. We'll see how this plays out eh?

A hopefully not-to-fanboi counterpoint of an article. 'The Death of Consoles' on wired. The author contends the advantages of the phone will overtake consoles. I agree with his softer assert that they need to change, but the hyperbole is unfounded.

One fool's examination of games as art, I examine what is art, why that definition may be meaningless, and why as gamers/designers we already got what we wanted... we just may not want what we got.

Critical and probably misguided thoughts on the direction of game development. I poke my finger at some of the vibe I'm getting from game development articles on the 'future' of gaming. I also yap about pizza.

I would have chosen the halo 1 pistol... while it doesn 't have the one shot capability, it 's broad effectiveness was almost unbalanced.

Heh, I had the same company name in mind for literally 8 years... a month before we went to register a photographer in Texas registered it lt While we could have gone forward, for some of the reasons you cite for your game name change we ended up reworking it. ...

Little mixed on the text one- since even though you 're saying it is a single button press, that could be slightly annoying to some. Even if you don 't agree, that would likely be the logic for willfully not including it. I have an idea though- put the last ...

My take-away from this and sorry if someone else has said this - it 's less about the griping, but the fact people who didn 't purchase it can review it. Shouldn 't reviews on the market place itself only be on verified purchases

According to your link- 'Double the content '. So every right and imperative.

Arguably he had a father figure for most of his life if I remember the media bio - grandfather for the early part and stepfather for a good part of it. But that 's going off memory of media snippets.
