Been back and forth on whether I want to reignite my old "Project Masamune" mod. I had built this 12-page concept over the last several months, but I'm afraid there's too much story and not enough gameplay, which is usually the case in most of my endeavors. I can never seem to come up with that actual element. I could always consider making a machinima, but that's not really something I ever considered doing, and I don't know if it's something I want to do.

 After failing out of Computer Science my first semester in college, that pretty much demoralized me to the point that I don't even want to think about doing any type of coding. It didn't help that it was the school's first time ever teaching Java -- it clearly showed since the professor had no experience educating his students about it. But I can only blame myself for getting the F.

I don't know if you guys ever got to see my old mod. It's been in the archives for a while, but I'll dig it up just for you guys to take a good look. The summary is gone, but the media isn't. Take a look, tell me what you think, and let me know if you think I should try again: Moddb.com . 76 watchers... look at how many people we disappointed....

I like to say that I'm always busy, but the fact is I always have some free time. Anyone who says they don't either has A) a girlfriend, B) live at their work, or C) are lying bastards who love complaining like me.

You.... failed computer science? I'm so sorry Zack. I thought you would have passed that with a B or maybe even an A-. Your mod was amazing dude and I don't know why you didn't finish it. Ambershee could point you in the right direction. He's a great guy and will probably try to get in on the project a bit himself if you ask him.

The concept art, the plot, it was something I was even watching.

I failed the class, but I got a B+ in the lab. Is that good? The reason the mod failed was because we unfortunately had to rely on someone to get their work done, but he kept putting it off until he left the group. Couldn't find a replacement after that.

Well, if I do start it up again, I want to start fresh. I'm considering finding something as a foundation, like a book or a graphic novel. I have two concepts to decide on, but no team to back me up (not even a co-lead), so we'll see how things go.
