Because yesterday's post was so depressing, I've decided to post something Parker's Mind related.
You have questions, and I have answers. And all the regular ones should be answered here.
LET US BEGIN!
Q: What game is this?
A: Yes, I still get occasionally asked this! BLARGH! So yeah, the game is Red Faction... The first one.
Q: Will you be doing Red Faction 2, or RF: Guerilla?
A: Probably not, I don't own either game. Maybe I might play them later, but I doubt I will turn them into a mind series.
Q: OMG! Is the series over now?!
A: NO! If it was, I'd announce it here! Still got a few episodes yet.
Q: When's the next episode?
A: When it is done. Now PLEASE do not ask again!
Q: What are you going to do when Parker's Mind is over?
A: I am planning to do season 2 of Parker's Mind, using Unreal 1. Do not ask about it yet, as details are very sketchy, and very early in the planning phase. It's going to be quite tricky to transition between the seasons, so if you ask for details, the only answer you're going to get at this stage is I don't know.
Q: What tools do you use to make Parker's Mind?
A: I use FRAPS for footage, Audacity for audio and Adobe Premiere for editing, and the title card was drawn in Flash.
Q: Please add me as a friend!
A: No. Why isn't subscribing enough? It's great that you like my work, but my friend list is reserved for people I am actually friends with and who I actually talk to.
Q: I want to make my own mind series, any tips?
A: Firstly, if your voice hasn't broken yet, don't do it. Wait until you actually sound old enough to voice your character. Otherwise you're opening yourself up to being badly flamed. Secondly, be original. References are fine, but you have to come up with your own jokes or you're just going to end up a cheap knockoff of someone else's work. People don't want another Dr. Freeman in a different world. Lastly, be creative. Think outside the box. This makes your series more interesting. The rest you can work out on your own. Oh yeah, one last thing: NO MORE MALE CHELL'S MIND! Seriously! Besides, we already have a really good Chell's mind in the making which is actually done by a girl.
Q: Wait... Isn't Ultor from Saints Row 2?!
A: Yes, they are indeed, but Red Faction came quite a bit before Saints Row 2, and it's by the same developer.
Q: How come Parker talks under water?
A: Because his enviro-suit is environmentally sealed. If you remember, Mars has a thin atmosphere of carbon dioxide so everyone walks around in enviro-suits which are air, and water tight.
Q: Howcome you got Red Faction to look good on your system? It looks all distorted on mine!
A: You need to download the Pure Faction patch to run it on a modern system. Alternatively, you can get it from Steam.
Q: Are you an Atheist? If so, why?
A: Yes I am. As to why, I do not see why that is such a big deal. None of the religions make any logical sense to me. If there's a God, why would his bible be filled with so many holes and contradictions? If there is one true god, why are there so many different religions? Why are there so many different ways of believing in him? It says "Thou shalt not worship any god before me." But why does it need to say that? If he is the only God then that statement would be unnecessary. How come God didn't exist during the regime of ancient Greece? Or ancient Egypt? They had their own Gods, long before Christianity, Islam or Judaism were ever dreamed up. I have yet to see any proof that any of the religions are true. And also, I am quite happy not believing. So to all those that think one needs a god to be happy, and to have good morals, you're wrong. I am very happy, and one of the nicest people you'll know. I have strong moral values, and I do not need a god to have them. I don't see how anyone could truly believe that an Atheist can't possibly have morals.
Again, why is it a big deal that I am Atheist? Who cares?! I believe what I believe, you believe what you believe. I don't go forcing my beliefs on people. I go about my daily life like anyone else.
Answer me this, why is it, that it's such a huge deal when someone is an Atheist, but not when they're a Christian, Muslim, Jew or whatever?
I do believe that is all for now. If you think there is a question that should be added, leave it in the comments section below.
