About depthRADIUS


depthRADIUS is named after the deviantART community that it reflects and represents. Built in service of the largest and most influential community of culture creators and culture responders in the world, this on-line journal explores the depths of the arts world from fine art to the most eminently accessible community arts projects. depthRADIUS endeavors to connect artists and art enthusiasts with other artists and art appreciators from all levels of the arts community, from its most successful stars and innovators to beginners just learning their crafts. The “radius” of this journalistic conversation will extend in its boundaries into arts advocacy, cultural relevancy, education and appreciation.

Epiousios

Art

the artist acts like a mediumistic being who, from the labyrinth beyond time and space, seeks his way out to a clearing.

-Marcel Duchamp

Burns Brighter

I want a trouble-maker for a lover,
Blood spiller, blood drinker, a heart of flame,
Who quarrels with the sky and fights with fate,
Who burns like fire on the rushing sea.

From Rumi’s Kolliyaat-e Shams-e Tabrizi

True

Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh.
--W. H. Auden

Do You Realize? by The Flaming Lips -- Lyrics

Do You Realize - that you have the most beautiful face
Do You Realize - we're floating in space
Do You Realize - that happiness makes you cry
Do You Realize - that everyone you know someday will die

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It's hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn't go down
It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Do You Realize - that you have the most beautiful face

By The Way...

The best things in life are not things.

Star Wars: Battle Pod

Tue Mar 3, 2015, 4:23 PM
Img-00 by techgnotic














“Star Wars: Battle Pod” has been released in arcades across America. An international release of the game is imminent.


The game is about the size of a moderately–large photo booth, and it weighs around 1,000 pounds. To enter, you open a small door and take a seat inside the compartment. In front of you rests an almost impossibly large curved screen, as well as the left– and right–hand controls. This is the type of chamber you may enter during daylight hours and exit only to find that it has become night.





by Bandai Namco


The game offers five simulations, all recreations of scenes and battles from the original films — Yavin, Hoth, Endor, The Death Star II — except for one. In the last mission, which is the most difficult, you play as Darth Vader in the wake of the rebel attack on the Death Star. Your object is to prevent the rebels from stealing the Death Star’s super laser, while piloting Vader’s TIE Advanced Fighter. If you’re a good shot, you get to kill Han Solo (George Lucas relented only after long resisting his heroes being killed in Star Wars games). If you’re a good gamer in general, write in and tell us what happens if you complete the mission — this reviewer failed to do so on an embarrassing number of occasions.

The actual controls of the game are intuitive and fun.


You aren’t so much piloting the crafts in the missions as much as piloting the weapons and choosing to go fast or slow. Just for fun, during one flight I alternated sporadically between accelerating and braking and, frankly, couldn’t perceive much of a difference. Odds are you could leave the thrust control alone the entire game and not have a significantly different experience. But otherwise the developers have done a great job of making the game feel like the inside of a cockpit. The immersive nature of the contraption combined with the huge display, vibration, and surround-sound all add to this experience. There is also a wind effect — some sort of fan that blows harder or softer on your face depending, ostensibly, on how fast you’re going. For better or worse, it reminded this reviewer of the built-in fans on modern exercise bikes at the gym.

What the game does not include are any scenarios from Star Wars Episodes I-III, which seems somewhat strange given the platform's potential for podracing levels. The developers have hinted that new levels could be added in the future, but haven’t given any indication of if or when these would be released.


Meanwhile rumors have surfaced recently that the new Star Wars: Battlefront game, which will possibly be released this coming winter, will feature battle sequences from the upcoming film The Force Awakens. Additionally, it seems that some characters from the new film will be playable in the game. Otherwise, it’s being hinted that the vast majority of the game’s levels will be derived from the era of the original film trilogy. A few battles from the prequels will be included as well, but the developers seem to be emphasizing the classic films especially, if the rumors are to be believed.





by Bandai Namco


It is worth noting that both Battle Pod and Battlefront are going light on prequel references.


It’s conceivable that this was a calculated move in anticipation of the upcoming film. While Episodes I, II, and III were not extremely well-received, the original trilogy is what drew multiple generations of Star Wars fans to the franchise to begin with. With that in mind, it stands to reason that developers across platforms would prefer to reignite the flames of fandom for the classics, and avoid referencing the prequels altogether.


Either way, Battle Pod is worth a play for any Star Wars fan, Battlefront looks enticing, and we are on the verge of peeing our pants with excitement for The Force Awakens.















Your Thoughts


  1. Would you like more events from the prequels to be used as backgrounds for the games, or do you prefer everything to be centered on the classic originals?
  2. Of all the Star Wars video games out there, which one provided you with the most immersive and authentic experience in your desire to be transported into the Star Wars universe?
  3. Do you think the arcade games should be transformed into “rides” with an emphasis on mind–blowing special effects, as opposed to simply being the games played in a booth rather than on your computer?












Star Wars: Battle Pod
Star Wars: Battle Pod was released just last month in arcades across America. The game is about the size of a moderately-large photo booth, and it weighs around 1,000 pounds. To enter, you open a small door and take a seat inside the compartment. In front of you rests an almost impossibly large curved screen, as well as the left- and right-hand controls.

There seem to be quite a lot of discrepancies in determining the actual date of National Pancake Day.


Internet sources list it variously as February 25 or 26 or September 26. For Christians observing Lenten rituals, “Shrove Tuesday” (on February 17 this year) is “Pancake Day,” the day you gorge on before beginning your fast. The IHOP (International House of Pancakes) should be a determining authority, but their advertising can’t decide if it’s February 17 or March 3. But really, who cares? Every morning we should wake up to Pancake Day. Here’s a gallery to make your mouth water.
















My absolute favorite meal in Nashville is sweet–potato pancakes at Pancake Pantry.”

As is always the way with pancakes, the first hotcake to come out of the pan will probably be a bit misshapen. Just scoff it, and carry on with the rest.”

Thank you very much for the llama!

Just wanted to say, the journals you post are amazing works themselves. You pick the perfect words, a great and fair selection of features to promote the themes and you really lure in the reader without making it such a drag to read. Long written posts I guess can discourage a lot of people but man, the way you just compose all these recognition, inspiration, event, etc. journals just makes them a real pleasure to read plus the questions at the end, for those who read the journals, are great little vessels for us to vent out our opinions after having are mind literally juiced up to express, just from reading your journal. I usually don't say anything and run off but the recent journal was just fantastic and I had to say something.

I don't know if it was just you with a lot of planning, or if you've got a talented team but regardless, the journals are awesome pieces that get us to step aside from our individual DeviantArt lives and come together as a community and connect and share with each other! It just makes me so proud to be a member in a great community as such, I owe Deviantart much thanks for connecting me to great peers and inspiring me every day.

I :heart: DeviantArt! :#1:
