Gamestop Gamestop is just awful. Everything about them is terrible. The staff, the system... EVERYTHING! I swear every time I've bought a game there they've asked me if I wanted a dlc, or if I wanted to preorder some upcoming game a long with my purchase. If I wanted to get something else I will tell you for crying out loud! And now you cant use your power reward points just by looking up the account with your phone number (you have to have the card with you)... WHATS UP WITH THAT? I mean the last time I went there I wanted to get mass effect 3 (along with the dlc) Assassins Creed Revelations and I wanted to preorder Halo 4. I knew I had like $120 in store credit on one of my power up accounts, but when I gave them the number that I used in the account they said I had to have the actual card with me... WHAT THE FUCK? So I had to drive myself back to my house (cause there was no way I was giving them my money when I knew I had in store credit) and got the card.
So now I'm driving back to the mall and I'm thinking I have something around $120 on the cards. Well as it turns out, when I get to the store and they scan the card "nope nothing". Now I'm calling 50% bull shit on that (meaning it could be either). I knew I traded in a shit load of games a while back and I knew I only used some of it. So I had to give those money robbing bastards what little remained in my wallet and I only got Me3 (no dlc). And as we were checking out, the cashier asked me if I wanted to preorder any games or if I wanted to get a warranty on the game. "..." Is all I had to say. I was almost convinced that they were trying to take my money.
It really sucks cause Gamestop dominates that business. I mean sure you can go to a Walmart or Target but what are the chances they will have the exact thing you want? And its not like there are any other game stores as "great" as them. I guess from now on I will be ordering my games off of amazon. Sure I have to wait a day or two but its better then being pressured into spending my money on something I don't need.
Calling Everyone Interested in MachinimaI myself have not made a single machinima in my entire life, but that is now changing. I am currently in the process of making a really big machinima project and I need a lot of help (voice actors and body actors).
BODY ACTORS PLEASE NOTE: if you want to body act in the machinima than you will need to join a custom game with me so I can see how good you are at body acting. How many times we have to go through a certain scene will determine whether or not you can be a body actor
Requirements for Voice Actors: 1. you must send me a recording of yourself for a trial to let me see if you are worthy enough (this is my first project and I want it to show how dedicated I am at making machinima. so no twelve year old's... sorry) 2. you must be serious about voice acting, no amateurs (sorry again) 3. you must have a really good quality mic 4. if you've been in any machinimas please send me a link to it (it would help my judgement)
Requirements for Body Actors: 1. no trolling (please its bad quality) 2. you must be willing to listen to what I (or the assistant director) tells you to do and cooperate. 3. You must be quite at all times when I or the assistant director is talking (it would make it hard for the people who are actually trying to help hear what I am telling them to do). 4. if you have busy spring plans then don't even try auditioning, I need body actors available when I need them
Body ActorsOK guys. As you must know by now I am currently working on a machinima of my own. I have voice actors ready to go (even though some haven't responded yet) the only thing I don't have... is body actors (which is the most important). If you don't have anything going on this weekend and would like to be a part of this machinima (yes your gt would be in the credits) give me your gamertag and I will invite you to a game either Friday Night or Saturday afternoon - Saturday night. Hope to get some responses because I really need the help!
Am I Joel? So I went on the Facebook page of red vs blue, and I looked at the photos of the season 9 screening at Alamo Draft House, and saw the one with me and miles (its cool that they uploaded that one considering that I'm not a cast member) and took a look at the comment page. Apparently, there are people out there who don't know shit about Rooster Teeth, and either mistaken me or Miles for Joel. In fact, one of them said this "Is that Joel, the guy who's been doing the voice of caboose on red vs blue for 9 years? If so, you rock". First of all, what a fucking noob. Second, how do I look anything like Joel, I'm a 15 year old for christ sake! And most importantly, going back to "the guy who's been doing the voice of caboose on red vs blue for 9 years" I'm 15, nine years ago I knew little to nothing about Rooster Teeth, and if I did, I'm sure they wouldn't hire a six year old for a major character in their famous machinima (trust me, they would get so much negative feed back from their viewers if they let that happen).
They might have been talking about Miles, or me but who knows. Although they do sound ridiculous for assuming a 15 year old would play a major part in Red vs Blue, I think it would be really cool working with Rooster Teeth. In fact, I'm even thinking about sending in a demo reel of my work to them and applying for a job (or internship as long as I get to work with them it really doesn't matter). What do you guys think? Should I take the risk?
