I’ve literally only just recently gotten into Gundam, I’ve started with Mobile Suit Gundam 00 and have been very slowly working my way through that, mostly because of other things distracting me.
Anyhow, for Valentines, knowing I like Airfix, Charly decided to get me a Gundam kit. I knew I was getting it, so it wasn’t “ta-da! Surprise” but thats fine by me, she asked me which Mobile Suit I liked the most visually and I have to say I love the chunkyness of Virtue. So an order was placed, and after getting stung by customs (grr) I now have my first Gunpla kit.
As you can see, I’ve started it, I took a quiet moment out of the day (Charly was taking a nap whilst Mei was doing likewise as they’d both had bad nights sleep and Rachael had gone over to a friends house).
The above is only the first piece, some 5 or 6 instruction panels and about 20 parts. I’m really enjoying being able to construct something without having to use glue!
RE Women in Games.
For a while now theres been a lot of discussion about women in the games industry and how there isn’t enough female representation. Thing is, I’m wondering how much this is actually a symptom of the industries output and how much of it is because of the culture within the software and media industries. I read something last week about how many women are struggling to get work in the movie industry, that there isn’t a shortage of female directors, they’re just not getting the work or support from the studios and whether or not this also applies to the games industry?
There doesn’t seem to be any figures regarding female developers working in any area of the games industry, only that “45%” figure regarding how many female gamers there are now.
I think if we are to see genuine change, then the games media and development studio’s need to employ more women rather than just blame the content of their peers output.
God I hate embargoes!
How can anyone get a tattoo done on their feet? I’d end up kicking the artist!
God I love this movie
I love the book too and “Drivers” use of pizza menu’s, its very different and very similar in alot of ways to the movie, if you haven’t read it, go read it.
