RIP VideoGameScripts

Posted on 9/6/2009 at 21:53 - 0 Comments - Post Comment - Link

It saddens me when I take a look at the successful games in the Game Industry nowadays. I want to make a chance. I want to introduce the world to a better form of gaming. A non-cliché form.

Several minutes ago I’ve watched a review from Gamekings about the game Guerilla Wars: Red Faction. The reporters were very positive about the game, just like most gamers. On the question whether the game contained any decent story line the answer was no.

Guerilla Wars: Red Faction is completely about being able to destroy literally EVERYTHING that comes in your way, including large buildings. You get missions such as destroying a building on the other side on the map etc. Obviously you have to pass enemies to get there, and kill them. The battle with your enemies? Not super.
So many people are excited about this project and I can predict that it’ll be a great success. Plainly because you’re able to destroy everything, since there is literally no storyline in the game.

This, as advanced screenwriter and eager gamer, saddens me. How a game, with no decent storyline, where it is all about destroying, can gain such a success. Right now I just want to stand up, take one of my screenplays, convert it into a videogame script, step my way into that studio, and tell them how games SHOULD be.

Now I know and understand that the storyline of games are less important then movies. The gameplay is on number one. But really, this is an embarrassment.

Anakin's Pain

Posted on 27/4/2009 at 21:54 - 0 Comments - Post Comment - Link

I just watched the Star Wars Episodes again and I really felt like putting this down.

I think George Lucas has done an amazingly GREAT job with creating the character of Anakin Skywalker. Thumbs up for him! Never have I felt so closely related to a character in a movie. Now you might wonder HOW I can possibly feel so related to a character like him. If you want to stop wondering, keep reading.

You see, sometimes things happen that we can't control. The death of someone we love, for example. Knowing, and maybe even seeing, them dying and knowing there's nothing we can do but to face it powerless makes us angered. At least, it makes me angered. When something happens I'm not happy with, or the knownledge of knowing I can't do anything about it, I sometimes get so mad I feel like I could smash the place up. Anakin Skywalker is exact the character that feels the same way. He, however, doesn't take control of those feelings and turns to the dark side. Only in an extreme murderous way.

And that is exactly why I respect George Lucas for putting such a piece together. It's definetly something I try to achieve in my screenplays too.

Speech

Posted on 15/4/2009 at 16:41 - 1 Comments - Post Comment - Link

I had to make a speech for school stimulating people to graduate from school. The speech was supposed to be 1-3minutes. Since my teacher liked it, I decided to post it down here.
Please keep in mind that I was suppose to convince/stimulate people and that therefore my speech is rather nerdy.

I have a dream
that everyone will graduate.
Unfortunately life isn't always that easy,
but that doesn't mean we can't give it a try.
We are human and in order to fulfill our dreams we are willing to give,
and if that means learning then so be it.

Many people of your age don't realize how important school actually is.
They just laugh over it and act like they don't care.
Only later, when graduation comes closer, they start to be aware of it's importance.
But it's too late by then,
the human brain can't consume that much information in such a short time.

But you, who I am talking to,
it's not too late for you!
You still have time to care and learn.
And all those times you spend on learning will be rewarded.
Not only will you graduate but you'll also be one step closer to achieving your dream.

Mijn vader/My Father

Posted on 13/4/2009 at 19:28 - 0 Comments - Post Comment - Link

Dutch rapper Nino and Yes-r have made a song about how they've never known their dads. I personally think it's beautiful. The song can be found here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxVlhKGVEBU.  Lyrics are translated below.

This is something what you'd never do for me,
taking the time to tell me what you feel,
whole my childhood I've been looking for you,
Then I had to stop with looking, were you good but eh? (wtf?)
Every year on my birthday it felt empty, even though I had everything I wanted,
Including cake, and when the phone rang, I was hoping for a wonder,
I would've given everything just to hear your voice again,
Now I've grown up and I tell you this; only a real father looks at his child,
And due to that this note, because you had the time,
but to be a father, pf, you lost that chance.

All those years you were gone, hurt me so bad,
But look at me daddy, I'm no little boy anymore,
I had the question and I'm still asking it; where did my father go?
Because I feel so lonely, and even if you regret,
You can't be my father, you can't be my father,
jeehee, jeehee

So as little boy I had to do it myself,
I missed you but I had to hold myself together,
Saw nothing of you back except for my grandparents,
No father to pass the ball to,
And because of that I played alone and I'm so good in keeping the ball high now,
I can tell you that this is not what I ever wished to say to you,
But yet it is the truth,
I've taught myself what my father should have taught me
Respect woman, work and shave,
These are the kind of things that you could've helped me with
The knowledge and the experience which I had to get somewhere else
But it's cool, your child is big now,
And I've learned from your mistakes, I see it this way,


All those years you were gone, hurt me so bad,
But look at me daddy, I'm no little boy anymore,
I had the question and I'm still asking it; where did my father go?
Because I feel so lonely, and even if you regret,
You can't be my father, you can't be my father,
jeehee, jeehee


yes, and before my puberty I still had hope,
That you'd see the light and suddenly decide to come back,
But most dreams are still fake,
because if I'd dream about that i'd still be sleeping,
but my eyes are open, the facts are known
I accept that I've never known a real father,
But still I'm a man and I still learn
A father I would be, your chance has been gone,


All those years you were gone, hurt me so bad,
But look at me daddy, I'm no little boy anymore,
I had the question and I'm still asking it; where did my father go?
Because I feel so lonely, and even if you regret,
You can't be my father, you can't be my father,
jeehee, jeehee

Things I want to do in my life

Posted on 9/4/2009 at 14:25 - 0 Comments - Post Comment - Link

In this Blog I'm going to talk about what I want to do (at least once) in my life before it's all over. Aw, that actually sounds sad. Please note they're not ranked. Number '1' is just the first thing I write down, not the thing I want most!

1. Having a movie made of one of my screenplays.
That would mean the world to me. It would make me realize my scripts are appreciated and that there's someone out there who'd actually like to invest money in it.

2. Talking/interviewing a gamescript writer (what's the name of that job even?)
As some of you may know I love to game. I've had several comments of people saying my screenplay could be an awesome game and to tell you the truth, I'm pretty interested in trying to write a gamescript. Unfortunately there are no good/decent tutorials on the internet for me which explain how to format the script. Having a nice talk with a gamescript writer would make things clear and I'd like to investigate the other side of scriptwriting.
Being able to do both would also be a great advantage. In case I'd ever feel like making a movie from a game or likewise.

3. Living in London
London is my favorite city, English is my favorite language. Need I say more?

4. Working on a Gamescript for an actual game.
I dont know if this is ever going to happen. As a matter of fact I don't really think it would. But I love to game and I'd love to experience what's it like to make a game, which will be played by many others. I don't really think it's a profession I'd like to actually DO later, but I'd sure like to experience it once in my life.

So as far as I know, those are the things I'd really like to do once in my life. 
How about you?







Eminem's Back

Posted on 7/4/2009 at 18:14 - 0 Comments - Post Comment - Link

Obviously everyone knows Hiphop/Rap legend; Eminem. With his amazing songs and respectable attitude he has been in the spotlights for quite a while. Also his movie; 8mile, has been a rather succes. Then, one day, Eminem decided to put his carreer to an end and move on with his life and family.

But guess what? It seems that Eminem has returned and is making his way back to the throne!  His very new single is called; We made you and can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIkzQYns61Q

We Made You clearly shows Eminem has gone a little modern. In the video you can see him dancing on a 'guitar hero' field. Also the chorus contains  tipical modern (R&B) Music.

I must say this song actually kind of dissapoints me. When I think of Eminem, I think of good, real music. His new song proves my opinion wrong. Either way Eminem is coming up with an album, and I hope the music in it will be more real and more like the way he used to be.

My second worry is piece of shitters like Lil'Wayne. I'm just praying that Em won't involve himself with that garbage. Lil'Wayne is fake, and Eminem shouldn't even bother paying attention to him. I don't mean to offend any Lil'Wayne fans out there by the way.

I guess that for now, I'm left with one option; to wait and see. And so I will. Tell me what you guys think of his new song, I'm curious.

Poem

Posted on 6/3/2009 at 18:17 - 0 Comments - Post Comment - Link

Just a simple poem I once wrote, hope you'll like it.

Why should I keep on searching,

When you keep running away,

Why should I keep waiting,

If I know you won’t stay,

 

Why do you keep hiding,

On places I can’t find,

Why you’re always going,

And leaving me behind,

 

It all just went so good,

What point have I missed,

How could you leave,

When I was holding your wrist.

 

Will you come back,

Will you return,

Am I the truly one,

Do I make you burn?

 

I wished we could talk about it,

I wished that you care,

All the things we’ve been through,

All the memories we share.
