Stories have been with us since the first hunter told another about the one who got away. Stories are what make us human. Stories lead to understanding. Stories are cooked. Fiction, religion, biographies, gossip, gaming, and history it all goes into the pot and out comes as fiction. To those ends I’ve been around, professionally speaking. Marine, taxi driver, teacher, scientist, and coder. This breath of experience has given me a little knowledge about a lot of things, good and bad.

A good story reaches beyond the scope of its words.

Battlefield: 1943

Imperial Japanese Navy. US Marine Corps. Fight!

There’s a elegance to a simple idea well executed. Two sides, three character types, three islands all carnage.

  • The guns sound like actual guns, that includes impacts, what I really liked was that gun fire from far away has that some muffled sound they do in real life.
  • Someone should have told the voice actor that the ‘Fi’ in ‘Semper Fi’ rhymes with ‘pie’ not ‘pea’.
  • This game is very lethal, guns actually kill rather than inconvenience, it also has a nasty tendency to respawning you right in the middle of the action. So you die alot. So you get frustrated. And you start to hate the other team. And the racism begins, it doesn’t matter what side they are. I find myself raging against the “Round-eyed foreign devils” half the time.
  • I’m a horrible pilot. With machine guns and bombs the only way I can score a kill is by running into something.
  • Everything breaks. Buildings, vehicles and plants. By the time the game is over the island is a burn wreck.

Well worth $15. The problem is since it’s a download I’ll never be free I can’t hide the disk from myself like I did with Team Fortress 2.

What’s new with Tone?

Not much.
Still looking for an agent and a publisher for Picking Up the Ghost.
Still getting married next month and we’ve been busy getting the last of the planning done.

Oh, I lost my job, that’s new.
And while I’m looking for work I’ve been studying Java ME for the Blackberry. Ultimately I’d like to develop a few apps for the three major smartphones; Blackberry, iPhone and Android. Then parlay that experience into a Masters program for interface design. I know a few people who are doing just fine in that field.

Yep, that’s what’s new.

Entanglement

Years ago I wrote a series of stories for a comic series of dark modern fairy tales. I can’t even remember what it was called but I remember Entanglement was the best of the bunch. Too bad there’s no market for a single issue comic story, fortunately Ryan Patrick animated it:
