Disney Infinity 2.0 - Released

Today Disney Infinity 2.0 was released, and I'm really happy for everyone to play the game that I play tested. I know that I didn't make a huge contribution to the game as I would like, but I still have an attachment to this game since this is my first official game credit in the game industry.

I love every Play Set being released, but my favorite one is the Guardian's of the Galaxy Play Set. While it doesn't have Star Lord's "Awesome Mix", I still love the environment and the characters. But the best introduction sequence to a Play Set is on the Spider-Man Play Set. But overall, my favorite character has to be Captain America. He is really strong and at later levels you can upgrade his shield toss to ricochet off multiple enemies. 

But the best part of the game, in my opinion, is the Toy Box. There has been a ton of improvements to this part of the game, and I like how you can build a bunch of different games using simple building blocks and the logic toys to make your game truly work. While a lot of the items will take some time unlock, many of the logic toys can be easily unlocked with a few hours of game play.

Anyways, I really hope that everyone gives this game a chance, and I'm not just saying that because I worked on the game. Thanks for reading!

Last Day at Work

So today was my last day as a QA tester at Disney Interactive. I'm not going to lie, I was really sad that I had to leave but I'm confident that I will go back again. Everyone was really nice at the studio, nicer than any other studio I've ever heard. Normally contractors aren't really part of the studio, but here I felt that we were part of the "family".

I'm really happy for them having finished working on Disney Infinity 2.0 and I really hope it does well since I know first hand how good the game is. I can honestly say that everyone there is trying to make the game better everyday.

Here is my favorite trailer that was done for the game, enjoy:

That's all for now, thanks for reading!

RC Car Rendered

So I finished my little RC Car and I have renders that I got using Mental Ray in Maya. I really did enjoy learning MODO and I'm sure that I will go back to it soon since I do like a few things more about it than Maya.

That is all for now, thanks for reading!

Learning MODO - Update 2

So today I was able to dedicate more time to my little project on getting my feet wet with MODO and I'm happy to to show some real progress.

So I'm learning how to use MODO by doing a simple model of a RC Race-car shown above and its being modeled to smooth. The car is pretty much finished and I'm in the process of putting the last touches on the remote control.  Then I will be able to add a few minor tweaks to model to make it more my own.

Hopefully I will be able to finish it tomorrow since I only have like 5 more videos to follow in Digital Tutors. That's all for now, thanks for reading!
