wimps and posers – leave the hall

At my last job, I worked with a fellow named Chris Hayes, who happened to be a guitar player in a local metal band from Hampton NH. Since my musical taste occasionally dabbles into the metal genre, and I like to support good local acts, I made a poster to help promote their band Archaic Eclipse. There are a few tracks on their youtube channel here,  if extreme symphonic metal sounds like something you’d like to sample.

I still haven’t played the new Final Fantasy yet, but after seeing numerous previews of it, I felt compeled to make a quick comic about it. It’s a thumbnail so click it, duh!

My initial thoughts upon seeing what the battle system looked like was “this looks pretty confusing,” and “why are there numbers everywhere?” I think pretty much anything outside the realm of the original Dragon Warrior seems incomprehensible to me. Thank goodness for 3D Dot Heroes. Want.

Been a really long while since I posted anything over here, so hopefully I can remedy that soon. I do have a lot of things I’ve been working on, and even more in the process. Here’s a recent project just for the fun of it, two of my favorite games mashed together, three if you have eagle eyes.
