Matthew Thomas's Blog


I'm not completley sure of what to put in here. The site doesn't do a very good job of telling me what this will do or where it will show up, but I suppose I will start with a brief introduction about myself.

I am currently a student of computer game design attending NVCC in Northern Virginia and then transfering to George Mason University. In my free time, I study games and gamers alike to see what works and what doesn't in the field of game design. I also modify currently existing computer games. I have experience with Valve's Source engine, Unreal (2.0-UDK), CryEngine2 and Unity. At some point will see if I can upload some examples of my work. Once I get this dammed site figured out.

I've been a long time reader of the work on this site and I'm looking forward to activley contributing and as always, learning more about the game industry from the detailed perspective the people on this site have.

On a side note, go ask a gamer what their LEAST favorite Final Fantasy game is. I 'd be shocked if anything other than X-2 was mentioned. r n r nX2 was bad on it 's own merits. Not because it had female leads it didn 't help though that ...
