A while ago I saw this trending topic on Twitter. Didn’t get to post then, but using this time to do it now.
When I was a kid, I didn’t have mentors. Most of what I did revolved around what my parents and their friends wanted. What they expected: get good grades, take AP classes, go to piano lessons, be prim and proper, become a doctor. Often, my parents dragged me to Filipino parties to be a walking showcase of their pride. If I messed up, I’d be chided for not following the example of <insert other Filipino girl my age’s name>. But most cases, I accepted it. I had little motivations to make an alternative course; I sat alone in auto-drive for most of my childhood.
Perhaps my past reflects why I don’t look up to others. Most of my time existed in solitude, amongst the pages of books or cinematic video games. I was too eerily content with my life. Back then, video games were only in my life as a replacement for not having siblings. Or in some cases, friends. Only after I saw how much others enjoyed video games as I did, across Newgrounds (my first internet site of choice) and Neoseeker, did I consider involving myself in the video game industry.
I don’t know what I want yet out of eSports. Of designing video games or machinima. I like to dabble in the possibilities, and the extent of what skills I can potentially offer. Suppose what inspires me is the thought of what I can shape myself into.
After the jump are a few of my favorite videos - the ones that inspire me. The ones that I remember when I want to make something of myself. Or, at least the ones that have really nice taste.
I am not an employee of Bioware or EA, so sadly no, I don’t have any insider intel. And even with privileged info I occasionally get, I wouldn’t say anything about it. Sorry.
That being said, based off everything the BW devs have said thus far, it looks like their announcement will be held during the EA press conference + E3. It makes more sense anyway, since EA’s press conference is going to be the main hitter with Sims 4 news simultaneously coming out.
