Word on the street is that the Anthem demo had a bumpy weekend. I managed to steam for around 3 hours on Friday, and then play for about 30 minutes on Saturday. On Saturday, I recorded a high quality video of my messing around. You should check it out here. I didnt run into any big issues in my limited time on the demo. Some players probably managed to get 20 hours plus, I’d imagine. Those people most likely ran into all the issues everyone was complaining about all over Twitter. But. not me. I win? Next weekend, I believe, is the open demo. Maybe I can manage to convince some people I know to play it with me. I get bonus stuff for participating in the VIP demo. So, I win again? ?

I helped a friend get his blog up and running. Like my blog, it’s been a long time coming. Personal sites are always bottom of the totem pole. I woke up this morning, and I just was inspired to make a logo for his blog.

He told me what he was looking for last week. Sent him some rough drafts this morning. We knocked out the what he liked and didn’t like. We were talking about logo text placement. I said something about maybe have the text below the character because it cuts off flat like a statue of a bust. He came up with having like a sculpture base. I slap something together with some crazy kinetic text. He picked out a cool Google Font. And, boom! I’m happy with what turned out, and I think he likes it to.
We just started with designing today so it’s only a start. I knew he like main left navigation. Made a basic canvas for us to doctor up over time, like my own site. Made some mobile optimizations, and presto! You should check out his site here.
