Design Festa Spring 2016

Design Festa is the largest art festival in Asia which is held biannually at Tokyo Big Site in Odaiba, Japan. Artists from all over the world are invited to express themselves in any way they see fit  through their work, regardless of their age, nationality, or even their talent. The festivities include a bazaar, stage performances, and most notably, live paintings by artists on canvases that range in size from a couple meters to a couple stories tall which are painted for the duration of the weekend long event. With no limits or restrictions on what can be exhibited, there are plenty of interesting, beautiful, and sometimes disturbing things to be seen here. RTP’s own Lost Link and Seagz retuned once again to see what was in store this year.

Katsucon 2015 Success!

maleficent

I returned to Katsucon this year, surviving the long flight from Japan and encountering no snow storms! Seagz and b-rock were unable to attend but I got to meet and hang out with a lot of cool people. The convention was filled with videographers and it was awesome meeting them all in person for the first time after watching their videos and talking online. RealTDragon and Cosplay With Me were especially rad dudes.

Summer Comiket 86 Coverage!

The comic market has ended and the doujinshi long sold out. The lines have fizzled and the cosplayers have put some clothes back on. Lost Link traversed the gardens and parking lots of Tokyo Big Sight for three days filming some of the interesting people hanging about while b-rock and Seagz roamed the inner halls searching for the best art.

Musings of Mudora XIV: A Fluctuating Banner

varl

I haven’t had this much fun pointing and clicking since my childhood days playing Myst. But while I was often utterly alone on a mysterious island back then, in The Banner Saga I’m in command of a sprawling caravan journeying across an expansive land where the sun has stopped moving in the sky. As the leader of both men and Varl (giant badass horned viking people) I must make decisions that, more often than not, mean the difference between life and death for my people.

Hey, We’re at Comiket!

We survived day one! Sunburns and mega crowds and 118 degrees aside, it was pretty successful. Got some arty merchandise, filmed some Japanese cosplay, started production on a music video and met some pretty cool peeps! Now to get some sleep in preparation for DAY 2.


Musings of Mudora IX: The King and I

swan

So I’m pretty sure my top 3 games of 2012 are all going to be indie, downloadable games. I recently had the pleasure of playing one on the PSN called The Unfinished Swan. The game tells a fairy tale about a boy chasing a swan that has escaped from one of his late mother’s unfinished paintings. You start in a completely blank white space equipped only with a paint brush. As it happens, the world around you is there but you have to paint in order to reveal your surroundings. This concept alone was enough to convince me to give the game a try (14.99) and to my genuine pleasure the game had an interesting tale to present in combination with its unique gameplay.

Hey Folks! Sorry for the lack of updates lately. Notorious admin b-rock assures me that he is hard at work editing podcasts and thinking up intelligent articles. But rest assured, he’s actually just playing video games and enjoying something called “Summer”.

Musings of Mudora – IV: Falling Out

cow

Know what’s cool about video games? They give players experiences. Sure you can go ride a bike, climb a mountain, eat ice cream, and do a back-flip off your garage onto a trampoline to the sound of Fort Minor’s “Remember the Name”. But how many us have traversed the wasteland of Washington D.C. after a nuclear fallout?
