And I coded a little weapon name generator for Destiny based on this: http://www.name-generators.com/name-generators/how-to-make-name-generator.htm
I used the data existing in the game so the names might ring a bell !
You can also add your own names to the generator but don’t F5 or everything will disappear !
Also you can not ad rude words.
Including me. Because I’m a die hard pokemon fan who played almost all the games (including games like Mystery Dungeons or Pokemon Link Battle ) so of course I had to move. Even if my neighborhood is full of Rattatas.
“Remember my super cool Rattata? My Rattata is different from regular Rattata. Itâ€™s like my Rattata is in the top percentage of rattatas.â€
Big cities have their own wonders though, with Lures at every pokestop and rare pokemons here and there. But in the countryside, you’ll only find Rattatas, Pidgeys and Weedles. It’s a bit disappointing (okay I say so but I made 60km including almost 10 on my bike to hatch eggs, I MISS ROAD 210 IN SINNOH OKAY).
But it made me move my butt to capture pokemons, for longer than expected. Before Pokemon Go, any distance where I had to walk was a pain in my butt. Now, I can’t wait to hatch my eggs. I even went 3km in the wild at night, crossing rivers, getting wet and all for a Pikachu… Who never popped. I still haven’t had a single Pika. Also Evees love to avoid me. They pop on my radar but wherever I go, they just disappear or get out of reach. I WILL HAVE A TOP PERCENTAGE JOLTEON, EVEE, YOU CAN’T STOP ME !!
BUT IT’S AN APP MADE BY SATAN HIMSELF
At least if you listen to the medias. Of course people are being stupid, careless, reckless and the app is driving people nuts. But you call it dangerous, I call it natural selection. If you need a reminder not to drive while hunting, not having your eyes on your phone while driving something who could kill you or anyone else, I wonder how you got your licence in the first place.
Still, big thumb up to journalist who manage to make squibs against an app who:
Makes people go outside, walk, run, ride their bikes
Make people talk to each other in a society where talking to a stranger can be seen as an agression
Lifts up the mood of many people in dark times where there’s no day without death, attacks and sad news
Make people ultimately play together, despite age difference
Bungie hits hard for Bungie day this year with a new contest for artists: You can have your own design printed on a shirt, if the community likes it. The community has always been amazing for me so I got in !
Here are my designs so far.
Of course, I could have picked UIdren but I’m pretty sure I would have been the only one to wear it. So I picked everyone’s favourite seller, the agent of the Nine.
You can vote for Xûr here: https://www.bungie.net/en/Community/Detail?itemId=208998124
Next, I picked everyone’s angry daddy, Lord Shaxx. You want the Crucible ? Listen to that robot out there. Lord Shaxx IS the Crucible.
Vote for Shaxx here: https://www.bungie.net/en/Community/Detail?itemId=209448042
Bungie posted another one of my creation to their community pages on social networks !
After my comics on Cayde and Eris Morn (probably my most popular and most featueed comics to this day, even retweeted by Cayde’s voice actor, Nathan Fillion WOOOOOOOT) it’s the Titan I made for my friend who made it to their front page!
Of course it became a pretext to spit on titans, defend titans, spit on Bungie for nerfing Hammer of Sol (thank you Bungie for this), for nerfing everything, for blaming Bungie for approximately every update, and so on and so on.
But still ! I’m happy 🙂
It seems that my most popular comics on Bungie.net won’t be featured since I use my art to complain about the Crucible, but this is a reward nontheless from Bungie sempai :}
Friday 11th was a brand new experience for 6 Numericall students, including myself. We met people from PWC, a company that makes analysis and reports about any given subjects, for companies as well as European commissions or even cities. But PWC has a major problem nowadays…
Switching to digital
The times are changing. Papers aren’t as sold nor read as they used to be. Everyone is on his/her smartphone and everyone wants a quick access to the information they need. That’s why articles tend to be shorters nowadays and why a 200 pages report without any color or image can be appealling, even if you are the one who ordered the report.
That’s why PWC came to us with a problem, waiting for the brand new developpers to find solutions with their new way of thinking.
If at first I was a bit panicked about the whole thing and what they expected from us, in the end, I found digital solutions popping in my mind as they were explaining their problems.
Too much text? Switch to infographics. What would I do with too much text ? Hide it, and display it on demand with a quick AJAX request triggered with a click. No more flooding, and the user can pick whatever piece of information he needs.
With a database and PHP, a customized report can even be made with FPDF. Every problem can find a solution, especially when they give you so many things to trigger your creativity…
In the end, it was a good way to introduce us to the real challenge of a growing entreprise on the digital market. And I kept the stress reliever !
