Jonathan Cooper was the Animation Director on Assassin’s Creed 3.
Dan Lowe was the Senior Technical Animator on Watch Dogs.
Both are calling out the Assassin’s Creed: Unity team on their bullshit about not including female avatars in multiplayer.
This is getting blown out a little too much. I’m in no way a ‘game developer’ but I have made 2 different video game projects on my own. I’m horrible when it comes to graphic design, animations, or modeling. I absolutely love the coding side of game development.
Now since I needed some animation and character models in the projects I created I had to buckle down and learn modeling as well as animation. So I guess you can say I was self taught.
I went through a bunch of tutorials online as well and youtube tutorials. The one thing I found in common between all the tutorials was in the order of character modeling and animations. They ALWAYS started with male characters and then when they were done with male they went on to female characters. The main reason for this was that male characters were more ‘square’ if that makes any sense. Less curves and less work to do. So once you have a base character you can build off that and make a harder character like one with more curves like female characters.
This has nothing to do with the animators hating women or being sexist or oppressing women in general. It was just the logical and easier route to take. Mind you, one of the tutorials I watched was a female animator.
Now I don’t know the pressure or deadline the Assassins Creed team is under but I will say that it will take more work to add female avatars in an online environment. I don’t know how long it will take but it will be more work. I really doubt the Assassins Creed dev team is filled with hatred and anger towards women to the point where they took away female characters in the online portion of their game. There is a lot of pressure and bullshit that goes on when creating a game that the public never sees or hears about.
Life has this on going burden.
This burden of finding someone special.
Finding that person and spending the rest of your life with them.
I can’t find that person.
I think that is why I hate life.
Today will mark the largest fast food strike ever, spreading far beyond U.S. borders. Organizers expect to rally in more than 150 U.S. cities and in cities in over 30 different countries. Fast Food Forward, a New York-based labor group, and the International Union of Food, Agricultural, Hotel, Restaurant, Catering, Tobacco and Allied Workers’ Association (IUF) have joined forces to help orchestrate the fast food employee walk-off. The goal of a global call to action is to usher in change, so that this $200 billion industry stops exploiting their employees with low wages and preventing them from unionizing.
fuck yeah homies
I don’t usually reblog this kind of stuff but I was a little blown away by this. I have graduated with a degree in Computer Science and I am now currently working for a kitchen cabinet company managing their 2 websites myself.
At the moment I am getting paid a whopping $11.90 an hour. Now If I understand this correctly these most likely uneducated fast food workers are on strike because they want to start off at $15 and a union? I’m in no way against the union but $15 an hour? $15 AN HOUR!?!!? Sometimes people are just completely delusional to this fantasy that they think they should be living. I can’t believe these dudes are asking $15 an hour, that is just wrong.
