Since Flower's release, there have been a few people who've experienced sound lagging/chugging/something issues with the game.  Well, looks like Sony has finally put out an update for the game which should alleviate some if not all of those issues.  My personal PS3 hasn't exhibited any of the problems, but hopefully those of you who've experienced it will now have a glitch-free audio experience.

Pictured here is Tim Schafer hosting the 2009 Game Developers Choice Awards.  Not a brilliant picture, but not bad either, so I decided to pop it onto my flickr.  I'm slightly annoyed that Kotaku is currently using it for their most recent post on the awards show.  There are two problems I have with this situation.  One: the photo is licensed for noncommercial use.  Two: there's no attribution.

On the first, that's easily gotten around with a quick e-mail to me.  Commercial magazines and websites ask me to use a CC-non-commercial photo, I say something along the lines of "send me a copy of the mag and

301 Moved Permanently

a-ok," and everyone's happy.  Easy as pie.  On the second, well, that's just sad.  For us artists, having our name there is really important, and it takes minimal effort.  It's not just the terms of the license; it's respectful.  Come on, Kotaku.  Even Fox News was able to manage that.

Edit: Thanks to Michael and

Kotaku for adding the link back to the source.  Really appreciated.

I was at GDC last week.  It worked out pretty well.  Took a few pictures, talked to various people, and mentioned what I do (game music, photography, and other random stuff).  Check out my flickr set for more images from the conference.

Overall, GDC was the usual mix of AWESOME and FRUSTRATION.  Give me a moment to catch my breath, and I'll get into this...

 
Living as an Artist is like Being Cloistered... PDF Print E-mail

The difference between art and science can be explained like so: science is the search for what is there while art is the belief in what isn't.

Just another in my long list of (mostly failed) attempts to make something that sounds reasonably elegant while explaining why the heck I act and speak as I do.  In this case, justifying why science is something I love but something I would absolutely hate to devote my life to.  Also, the fact that I'm a huge fan of Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris, yet still consider myself to some extent religious...

(Or maybe I like religion more than I am religious?  Or maybe I'm confusing that for simply being spiritual?  I don't know.  Maybe after a good night's sleep this will all change...)

...why are all the really nice quotes on Flower's music in languages other than English?

GDC time for me!
