Not dead at all. The simple fact that you are ignoring proves that you know it is quite alive and well and living within you.


you seriously have anger issues. Do you even get out at all?

I see you don't behave well on this site either. I see you have negative ratings in you ATS points and BTS points. It seems to me you like causing trouble. You seriously need to get out more.



I never said I was a saint. That is the difference. You say you are not racist, the gaming industry is.

Then why have you said so many racist things?

I am not angry at all. I would not worry about how much I get out since you are so busy posting racist crap on every Nibiru forum you can find.

I just really want you to explain the following statements as to how they are not indicative of a racist.

Tibets believe in …
Tibets believe in spirituality and the chinese don’t like it. Chinese want to destroy Tibet for some odd reason.
Africans control water. Our body is made up of 90% water. Just look at how good they are when it comes to sports.
fire is controlled by the whites. well you know everything from that.
Native Americans/mexicans are good with the earth. Mexicans and Native Americans at one time took care of their own country till the white man came to take them over.
Arabs still trying to figure them

yeah, white people think they are superior to everything. it is sad if you ask me.



Don’t forget the Arabs. They are just as bad as the white people.

Why are you just pretending they are not there?

Why is it okay for you to be racist but not an employer?


And to reiterate. You're not being rejected because you're a minority. You're being rejected because you have no marketable skill whatsoever. The end.


I will get better as time goes on. Practice makes perfect. But since you worked for crystal dynamics didn't it take you time as well to perfect your work? Didn't you get better when you were hired with a company?

you still have issues. As I have stated I am racist towards racists. Those that stereo type minorities.. this also counts for pride being in any race such as black, arab, white, asian, etc. I am human and at one time the human race was one color.

But people can't get past the color of one person's skin. I go after the majority which is currently white. Racism has improved and not much even Obama has stated this. You know that white cop that got blamed being "racist" towards Obama's friend? I defended the white cop. Stop trying to put words in my mouth.

Also you know the black panther group that stopped voters from voting for McCain? I disliked what they were doing.

YOU ARE THE ONE TRYING TO MAKE ME LOOK RACIST.

No gaming company is a school that pays you to get better. They need people who are already good. There are people all over the internet creating things for fun that far surpass your portfolio. Perhaps you can show us one company that was offering positions in which to learn while they pay you?

You just seem to think things work in way completely antithetical to reality. If you can find a good paid internship somewhere, please post that for us. Perhaps people here could even help you get that job. Otherwise, it seems like you are saying you just went to companies with your poor quality work and told them to hire you so you can be good enough to earn your keep. Really amazed no one wanted to meet you after that?

Maybe it was your attitude towards the white people you contacted?

Can you please share with us some of the jobs you applied for? You do not even have to give the company, just a job title. I am also curious what games PIXAR was working on.

Yes it did. But I had a degree to begin with. I'll give you a timeline.
There is no real limit on this scale because your work can become infinitely better, but let's call it one to ten.


Highschool: my skill level was about a 2.

After my Masters Degree: Skill level was about an 8.0.

Now: Skill level about a 9.0

The minimum level to get into the industry is like a 7.0. And you're just not there. It's that simple dude. You need like 3... 4 more years of practice. And I mean, DAILY practice. And then you'll probably be ready. Trying to break into the industry where you are is just a waste of valuable time.

SO it took yo a master's degree to get into the field? I have noticed on some companies requests that a bachelor's is required. That is at minimum. I have taken an internship already and they loved my work. They were white as well, but they were not in the gaming industry and they were medical. I got an A on my internship.

This is why I can only handle people in short bursts. GOD bless george carlin.

wait if I am racist towards only white I shouldn't like white comedians!!!

LMFAO!!!

No. I didn't NEED a MFA, I just decided to get one over a BFA. As a result I got a better job with a higher starting salary.


The point is. I was nowhere near ready out of highschool, and neither are you.

I don't know what kind of internship you're talking about already having. But you have to get an internship in a related field. I couldn't get an internship at a movie studio and use that to apply for a video games job. It's just not the same.

horse sh~~! Not the same? Same production level and pace as the gaming industry.

I have done my research. The only difference is gaming industry has programmers and medical doesn't. oh yeah and the medical industry requires a lot of research.

I'm sorry, but you're wrong. I think I'd know a little better than you. Movies and games are getting closer together, but they are still very different. Even a person who works at Pixar or Dreamworks would have to take specialization courses before they could get a job at Bioware or Epic or something

The environment might be different but it is all the same. if they are looking for a 3d artist on their job posting then it is just like medical industry posts looking for a 3d artist.

Wait he is white!

I look up to that man!

His lifestyle was almost identical to mine.

Okay, making pre-rendered movies is SO vastly different from making a real-time game, they're practically different fields. Colleges even offer special degrees nowadays SPECIFICALLY for VG simply because the fields are so different.

When making a movie, you can use as high of a poly count as you need, as much lighting, tons of filters and render effects, mental ray, Super High resolution textures, etc. etc.

When you make a video game, you need to consider your polygon budget, bake normal maps for characters, limit your texture resolutions, simplify keyframes, etc. etc.

It's a whole different way of going about things. You can't just slap a mesh-smooth onto something and say "Der, looks good, moving on".

It all boils down to one thing: Your portfolio is too weak to enter the games industry.

It's that frigging simple. If you can't wrap your head around that fact, then perhaps you should consider a different job like shoe-salesman.

I believe what I asked was for something specific. I could have said what you just said. Show us something.

Why do you really just expect us to agree with you when you offer us no reason to believe you have any idea what you are talking about. Show us a job posting. Show us quotes from these game sites explaining how they are looking to pay amateurs to gain skills on their dime.
