I spent the weekend playing a lot of games but not the games I expected. I tried to get into the new AC Unity but just couldn’t do it. It looks amazing but I found the game super boring. I wonder if the reason I liked Black Flag so much was because it wasn’t like a traditional AC game. I beat COD’s single player campaign and thought I’d dig into the multiplayer but ended up back in Destiny for my FPS fix. I think if I had my freinds on the PS4 it might be different. I tried switching over to the Xbox One to play with them but that only lasted one night. I spent the most time this weekend playing Diablo 3 on the PS4. I had grabbed it on Friday when I was sick and looking for something to play. I thought I’d just check it out real quick and ended up playing for three hours straight. When Kara got home she saw me wrapped up in a blanket on the couch and said. “why are you playing Diablo 3...without me!”
We had played a bit on the PC but it didn’t really stick. She picked up a controller and popped into my game. Pretty soon the two of us were hooked. “This is so much better than playing on the computer.” she told me. Pretty soon my 10 year old turned off Minecraft and came in to see what we were doing. “Can I play?” he asked. I gave him the third controller and he jumped in with a Crusader. I have to agree Diablo 3 is much better as a couch game. We kept coming back to it over the weekend and had a blast.
Tycho says he doesn’t think I’ll like Dragon Age: Inquisition but I have to see for myself. I did the pre-install on the PS4 last night and I’m looking forward to checking it out tonight. I also grabbed Farcry 4 while I was in there but I don’t know how I’m supposed to find time to play all this stuff.
I know some people like to see the behind the making of stuff on our larger comic projects. Here are a couple images showing you the process for the latest page of Automata. The first one here is my original sketch for the page.
Here is the inked page ready to be colored.
I’ve been getting lots of nice comments on Silverside so thank you for that. I’m glad you guys like Sam and Carl as much as we do.
