What Is “The Mirror’s Edge”?

June 10, 2008 Leave a comment

So I’ve been thinking, my current blog, radiantdreamer, has too much of a mix of everything in it. It’s time to cut it down. I’ve decided to re-focus radiantdreamer as a more anime-oriented blog, and start up a new blog on the “Ramblings of a Game Industry Otaku”, keeping a closer tie to my game-industry life on this side. Hence the blog title Mirror’s Edge.

As a symbolic name, it works as a reflection of me and what I am, and at its edge, is a borderline between two different, yet linked interests. The flip-side of a coin, a mirror’s edge. Likewise, I would like to find a way to link the two blogs together for readers to jump between if they so feel inclined to see what’s on the other side. Perhaps through an RSS feed or something.

Artwise, I’ll be splitting it up too. My anime related artwork, my photoshop work on figures, will remain on radiantdreamer, while my illustrations that are generally less anime, or entirely a different style, will appear on the Mirror’s Edge. Hope this works out. If not, I can always just stop writing in the Mirror’s Edge.

I’m sure many of you wonder what I do in my spare time. I work on video games! So with that, I’ve added a new section to my gallery detailing the work I’ve done in my six years of being in the game industry. Not everything has been added yet though. Keep checking to see for new stuff!

New Computer!

So it’s finally happened. My computer of 4 years (yes 4 years!) has died. Actually, it died about 2 years ago when the motherboard failed. I don’t know exactly what happened. It seemed that something shorted out. I did want to upgrade at the time, but thought better of it and instead invested in a replacement of the same model. It was an Asus P4P800. RIP.

At the time I didn’t think much of it, and thought it simply was its time, until even the replacement board failed 2 years later. I began to think that maybe the power supply is the one to blame. Everything worked good until my video card fan broke down and I had to buy one of those giant Arctic Cooling fans. I also replaced the CPU heatsink as well along the way, but something in there wasn’t right. Perhaps the wattage on my power supply just wasn’t cutting it anymore, it most likely is the case.
