@Dillum Are these images that you are importing into Illustrator, that are pixelated? Because you shouldn’t have any pixelation when you create a logo in illustrator.

@TheTrollionaire You should have a font library (application) which you load them into. I have a Mac my application is called Font Book. Once there loaded you will be able to use them in all your other applications like InDesign, PhotoShop etc..

I have been look for videos which can give me a refresher course on Adobe Illustrator, and yours are one of the best I have come across. I am going to have to sit on evening and watch all of them.

You can buy a lot of logos for yourself and you can later resell them at a much higher price. Check out my channel for some logo design opportunities.

I’m enjoying this show so far. Michael and Andrea play off each other well and have a lot more energy than a lot of game podcasts I listen to. More Nintendo coverage plz.

But really, I love your show Michael! Please keep it up and thanks for all the updates!!

Ya know, I’m the kind of “gamer” that only plays one game at a time, i.e. Zelda – Ocarina of time, Diablo II, World of Warcraft, etc. So, I don’t have a lot of exposure to fun retro games or the new games out for consoles. I really enjoy the way Michael does a great job of drawing me in to the new game content and making it exciting and relevant. His enthusiasm is fun and infectious. Keep it up and this could be a great show!

@sedatedlife18 Dude you rock! Yeah… I’m getting sidetracked hunting down bandits and trying to get sharpshooter challenges, but I really want to get through more of the story – it’s just that on the way I always get sidetracked with something!! I had the same problem with GTA IV but it’s better in Red Dead than having my “cell phone” go off in Liberty City all the time.

I really should watch all the way to the end before commenting. If you really want to make a splash with your fans, and with other gamers in general, I would suggest an interview with a Bungie employee about Halo Reach.

@LuddenMedia Getting to Mexico per storyline isn’t that hard. There are somewhere in the ballpark of 60 story missions all spread out through three map sections. The last map section has the smallest portion of missions, and Mexico probably has the largest. The missions in New Austin don’t take long as long as you don’t spend time playing mini-games like five finger fillet, or doing the sometimes lengthy “stranger” missions. The hardest part of the 100% completion is the ambient challenges.

@sedatedlife18 at least he’s playing Red Dead Redemption as opposed to… not. How in the world did you make it there so quickly? I feel like I’ve done tons of quests. I’ve literally played for 20 hours on that game so far and haven’t made it to Mexico. HOW did you burn through it so fast?

-_- The guy host does not qualify as a gamer. He’s had Red Dead for a couple of weeks now and he’s not even to Nuevo Paraiso. I had 100% completion percentage after a week and a half. Granted I’m a “hardcore” gamer, but it seriously took me about four hours real time to advance to Mexico. If he keeps up that pace he’ll be talking about Red Dead well into Christmas. Still this is my 2nd favorite show on TWI right next to TWIYT.
