Short Update on the life and times of me!

In short, I got Windows 7 and it's pretty damn awesome!

Also, FORGE WORLD LOOKS FUCKING FANTASTIC!!!!!!!! I NEED TO GET THIS GAME NOW!!!!!

I was sold when I first saw it, sold even MORE when I read this, and then my heart and soul gave way when I saw these screenshots.

If you don't recognize these images instantly, you don't play enough Halo.

And that's it!

Is It Time To Move Along?

Posted by Gloqwi Thursday, July 22, 2010 0 comments

I know it. I don't update this website and no one visits it. Why do I still have it? Because it's a fantastic memory that I always want to remember. So yeah, I think I may have moved along to Library of Games.

HAHA! NO!

Instead, I will stay here and work on Library of Games as a lead contributor. Why should I barely hang onto this dying site? Because LoG doesn't do ANIME! XD

 This is the new self-interview that I did for the new website that I'm on. Does it look familiar?


Kaillif Ammen (Gamertag: Gloqwi) is a video game/anime addicted teen and one of the first two people who joined the YouMedia gaming club (originally known as the YPlay Gaming Club) that made this website! He has taken time out of his completely free schedule to answer some questions that look very familiar to people that visit Bungie.net because he is unoriginal like that.

Q. Who are you and what do you think your doing here?


Hi! I am Kaillif Ammen! I was the first person to host the Library of Games podcast before Patrick came in (who has now left us...he's not dead!) and I currently edit the podcast together. I am also the site's caretaker and one of the two currently contributing writers (and lead editor).

Q. That sounds boring and frivolous. How long have you been in the gaming industry?

I've been playing video games for as long as I can remember. I only started becoming super into video games since I got my original Xbox in 2005, and I've only been completely immersed by video games since 2007. I opened a website back in early 2008 which I post on from time to time and now I work here!

Q. Isn't that sweet. What makes Library of Games seem different than any other gigs you've done?

There is more than one person that cares. Seriously! Byrdie has been doing some awesome stuff for the website and Stanley puts a surprising amount of work into the podcast! I'm also happy Aaron and Malic can stand talking about video games and other nerdy things with us for about an hour straight! I love it!

Q. You've been here part of the club for about half a year. What do you think this site will become?

This club has become something bigger over the past 6 months. This started out as two people who raised their hands when they said they wanted to review games for the library, which has now become a larger group of people who now talk about video games weekly for an hour and a website. I don't know what it will become, but it will grow from what it is now.

Q. Whenever you do these long, meaningless posts and work on the slightly frivolous website, what stays in your mind to keep you going?

I don't think they are meaningless, and I don't think this site is frivolous. Everything has to start somewhere, you know? I think it's the thought in the back of my head that says that "something good will come out of this." Yeah, that's it.

Q. Any tips for people that want to start a podcast or a website?

Be different. The key is to stand out from the crowd to get the attention of people that you want to listen to you. We are different because we are teens on the internet that won't spend half of the time spewing racial, sexist, homophobic slurs and speak about video games with thought! Right now, that's not enough to get everyone's attention, but we are currently thinking of ways to stand out (and Byrdie seems to be on the right track!)

Q. Experience, work ethic, or talent? What are you looking for with these guys?

These guys come to the podcast every week and bring something to the table, so there's work ethic. These guys have enough experience talking about games and other geeky things with friends all the time, so what I would want from them is the talent to make something interesting on the podcast or website. For me personally, I have basic experience and talent to start up this place (because I'm egotistical like that) but if you know me, I LACK work ethic. There are about 4 podcast episodes you readers haven't heard because I was too lazy to edit them on time. Don't worry! I'm trying to change that right now!

---------------------

That seems like a very optimistic note to leave off on. This is just the start of interviews that all the members will be doing if you want to learn more about them and get inside their heads. I don't know what they'll be like, maybe the same as mine, maybe completely different. I really have no idea. But I can't wait to see what they respond!

So, my friends wanted to start a machinima series, but it's been a year since that happened and it never really came into fruition. Before we started working, we all did these self-interviews that pretty much served as an 'About Me'. Now I am part of a new website THAT LACKS AN 'ABOUT US' PAGE, I think we need to do our own self interviews to make ourselves look MUCH more interesting. This is what I did for the machinima website a LONG time ago, this is: Broke'd In: Gloqwi.

P.S. Apparently, I thought loathing meant the same thing as egotistical back then. So replace any sign of loathing with egotistical as you read this.

P.S.S. I also didn't know how to spell.

FOR THE SAKE OF OUR PERSONAL INTERVIEWS, LET'S REPLACE 'AMP' WITH 'LIBRARY OF GAMES' and 'VIDEO EDITING' with 'AUDIO EDITING'

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Kaillif Ammen (GT: Gloqwi) is a self-loathing blogger slash gamer who was brought into the AMP crew because he knows more website design s#1t than all you guys (see? self-loathing) and because of his suprisingly low-voice over the microphone. He has taken time out of his completely free schedule to answer some questions that look very familar to people that visit bungie.net.

Q. Who are you and what do you think your doing in AMP?


I'm Kaillif Ammen, gaming and blogging extraordinare! I'm currently the lead website designer/organizer and might possibly be seen in some of the videos. I could also help out with some of the video editing when that actually does happen. Other than that, I'm really just the dude to go to when things need to be done and you really don't have the time to do them yourself.

Q. That sounds boring and frivolous. How long have you been in the gaming industry?

I've been playing video games for as long as I can remember. I only started becoming super into video games since I got my original Xbox in 2005, and I've only been completely immersed by video games since 2007. I opened a website back in early 2008 and that's as far as industry talk goes.

Q. Isn't that sweet. What makes AMP seem different than any other gigs you've done?

There is more than one person that cares.

Q. During your small time with this gang, what makes you think they'll pull through with the machinima.

When did I say they'll pull through?

Honestly, the only hope I have for this is that these guys realize how much money they have dropped to do this and are gonna do it whether they like it or not.

Q. Whenever you do these long, meaningless posts and work on the slightly frivolous website, what stays in your mind to keep you going?

Seriously? I really don't know. It's a good laugh, it shows how much of a life I don't have, and that I really have nothing else to do. I'd go with the second one, realistically.

Q. Speaking of no life, some people might read this and like to learn more about web design. Any tips for them?

Spend most of your life on the computer. Easy.

Q. Experience, work ethic, or talent? What are you looking for with these guys?

Work ethic. I already have enough of the other two. I just want to see the crew actually do something with this.

Q. Bonus Round! What tips would you give the people that are actually viewing this website to do to get people that are complete strangers to you find your website?

Make it look professional. Which is what I am doing. All other answers you will find by asking Crimson.
