I've been quite dissatisfied with the modern gaming industry. For American games there has been nothing but big budget over rendered clones of WOW, Halo, and others. I've never seen any games outside of Japan that have been driven off pure creativity and risk to be different. That was untill I went to my boy Imran's house and tried out the demo to Mirror's Edge. I don't know who at EA(of all companies) thought of this game but it's pure creative genius! On one level yeah it's first person combat game but, the twist is that the character is a freestyle runner/Spy. Your litterally jumping ,climbing, sliding, wall running on roof tops to your goals. Not to mention the simple color schemes of the levels are so cool! ( I love simple color schemes) Especially the first level reminds me of that Red Hot Chilli Peppers video inspired by the Minute Still Lifes by Erwin Wurm or/and personal storage garages ( which I love). I was really impressed with the design the game play was a real challenge since I'm not savy with the PS3 controls (cuz I'm Po').
I'm totally repin' this game. So please check it out if you have a PS3 I'm not sure if it's available for XBoX360 or Wii. I'll Probably blog about my list of most creative games....

I couldn't go to sleep with out blogging about tonight. What an inspirational night and what an experience to see Barak Obama become the first African-American and the 44th President of the United States. I was filled with joy, excitement, and hope. I couldn't hold back my tears during the counting of his votes and his speech. It's wonderful to experience an African American man who exudes so much inspiration and is a glimmer of what it was like to see my Hero Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I pray that Jesus will use Obama to touch many lives and that he will be a great example of his famous verse " With men it is impossible but, not with God for all things are possible." History was made on Nov. 4th, 2008 and it's inspired me to change with it! I'm painting something special because of this momentous celebration and I'll be done with it this week. Stay Tuned and thank you all!
