Make Gaming Great Again, May 26th, 2019

Hello World!

I know, for the past two weeks, I haven’t put up any content whatsoever, except the Deplorable memes. I’ve been thinking about a lot of things right now, and I came to some big decisions.

One of the things is the nature of social media, and I’m starting to loathe all social media now. I really think that social media was a huge lie and time waster. I can start going on twitter, facebook and others and waste hours of my time before I start to get to work on something – and so my work is suffering. According to the definition of addiction, if a behaviour becomes a problem to other areas in life, it has become an addiction.

So I’ve voluntarily decided, no more social media except for showcasing my work – and a full exclusion of Twitter and Facebook. Yes, I know that is inconsistent with what I’ve said in my videos, but I need to start to take my work seriously. Besides, social media was created to ensure people were arguing all the time – so I would rather not engage in it.

Other than that, the planning of GamerGate Trolls is almost all done. This block of lessons is all about creating the assets for that game. So, expect some real push on modelling – as I create Trollette and her apartment in Blender, and bring that all into Unreal. That new block of lessons is going to start in mid June – I need some time with my new computer to really get it working.

I am going to break down each part down as a project – that way people can get the practice they really need to create stuff properly – and that way I can focus on creating things and staying head myself.

Also, in this block of lessons, my Fiancée is going to get more involved. I know GGTs is a huge project. With all the major and minor characters and areas and objects – all of it will take at least 5-6 years for someone all by themselves. But if I get her involved, I can probably shave 3 years off of that – with the areas and objects.

Besides, that is why I started to produce videos – learning something and then teaching it is the best way to actually learn.

This week in Make Gaming Great Again, May 12th, 2019

Over the past couple of days, I’ve had a really eye opening experiences, and some deep soul searching. After all, an unexamined life is one not worth living. I know Facebook and the other big 4 social media platforms have reach, but does they have flexibility.

My guess, no, they don’t. I introduced GamerGate Trolls, and all the work I have done on it with a facebook group, and in 36 hours, I was banished from the group. I guess they can’t stand the heat. I’ve been thinking, as a huge Introvert, I have always avoided trouble and drama in my life. Now that I am seeking it, I have come to a real realization, fuck anybody on those platforms.

They are not my platforms. It is Minds, Gab, Steemit, BitChute and Voat that my audience lies. Other than that, everything went good this week.

Switching over to a wordpress blog website has been remarkably awesome for me. I know some people here are saying not to use it, but you can’t run in fear either. If you run from that server, you give them the power. If you stay and fight like King Leonidas and the 300, you can give people the hope to stand. We need to stand and not hide behind rocks.

If they think we can’t fight back and stand and be just as inflexible as they are, than they do not know what is coming. Who are these people, that think they can dictate what is allowed as online speech, to defy us! They are nothing but steppingstones to walk all over. They cannot stop us, once we decide we don’t want to be stopped.

Feel free to check out the work I’ve done this week – especially the Blogs – they support me financially.

MGGA Plays – BattleHeart 1 – Review

Full video –

Battleheart, the birth of the series, was a good game. It was very fun because it was easy to pickup, some basic configuration, and lots of class mashups to create amazing stuff. Still, it’s very linear storytelling, and improper algorithms putting some characters at disadvantages took away from the greatness of this game.

Welcome back to Make Gaming Great Again.

Last ‘semester’ was a bit of an idea, to see if I could start a game development channel on YouTube and BitChute and see if people thought it was valuable. While YouTube certainly has me in some kind of algorithm wilderness, BitChute has over 2000 views and gets more popular every single week I check its stats.

The most important lessons of the first semester is – don’t be afraid of coding, just learn the definitions and practice. Don’t be afraid of art, just use tutorials and get better, then start characters and caricatures from scratch to further your skills.

The whole 10,000 hour rule is all about learning, practicing what you learn, and then trying things and experimenting. If anything, this is the most important thing I think I could have taught anybody in the 24 videos for ‘Semester’ 1 – learn, practice, share and experiment.

This ‘semester’, we will be learning some more advanced things for sure, but it still comes down with learning, practicing, sharing and experimenting.

First, we will learn the principles of animation – 12 things you need to learn to bring your creations to life, be it 2d or 3d animation.

Second, we will learn Blender by creating the solar system. I also recommend you learn Blender Guru’s blender basics tutorial group, because I will teach much of the same stuff he is teaching, but you will be doing something different from what I am doing – he shows you how to make some donuts and a cup on a table, and I’m showing you how to create the Solar System, with the exact same lessons – something called lateral learning.

Third, I will be teaching you coding again through a new coding game that I just learned about. It has 11 levels, each with a more involved coding solution – perfect for practicing and gaining skills.

Thanks for the support and welcome to my ‘second’ semester, making games great again!
