That device has been turned into another d*ck extender. Now almost every 'young but talented' artist wants to buy one and quickly upload a video to show everyone how cool his/her new tablet is.

Guys and girls, really, don't let corporations turn you into the brainless mob of consumers. I know people who (in our 'digital age') work with 'real' ink and pencils, and they create masterpieces. I know people who work using old Wacom tablets, and they create great works. 'Mai cewl Cintiq!!!111' won't make you a great artist just because you spent a big sum of money to buy yourself a fancy device. Your hands and your brain are your primary tools. Other stuff like super-expensive ink pens and tablets can help, yes, but it will never work _instead_ of you. Your Cintiq is just a tool. It doesn't make you 'a real pro' or better than a guy next door who uses cheap pencils because he tries to scrape enough money for college.

I'm writing this because of the attitude some of those 'happy owners' express towards 'ordinary' folks. This 'high and mighty' attitude really puzzles me. You've got yourself a new device, it's cool and useful. So? You haven't changed a bit. Your skills are at the same level as before. So why is this 'Now, when I have a cool car, everyone has to kneel before my greatness' attitude? Ehh. I guess it's just how people's psychology works.

P.S.
I'm not talking about the _real_ pros and good artists who use Cintiq in a normal, quiet and productive way. They see it as it is - a useful tool. My problem is with insecure 'pros' who use fancy devices in attempt to repair their broken self-esteem. And yes, I'm just very grumpy. )
The plot is ready. Currently sketching this nightmare.
Saw that promo video, red some comments. Once again I've realised that the majority of modern gaming community consists of hypocritical sissies.

'Oh my Gawd! He KILLS PEOPLE!', 'You must be sick to buy this hideous trash!', 'This game will give video game haters another reason to ban everything!', and all that 'I do heroine and f*ck cheap whores, but I'm a good person' kind of two-faced sh*t.

Gears of War, Mortal Kombat, GTA, DOOM and even Fallout 3/NV - it's ok when you kill hundreds of people/monsters in those games (or punch a whore to death, or dissect someone with your chainsaw, or rip someone's heart out, etc.), but when one developer honestly states that 'killing people is the sole purpose of our game', moral knights and other basement hypocrites start pissing themselves, yelling 'This is wrong!!!111'

So, when agent 47 slices throats and breaks necks - it's 'Wow! What a cool-looking professional!', but when a grimdark guy does the same, only without fancy 'professional assassin' wrap, it's 'Oh Gawd! This is disgusting!!!111'

I hope that I'm not the only one who finds this situation stupid.

P.S.
I'll definitely play it as a Konrad Curze simulator.
I'm writing a script for a very short comic story. It'll be a WH40k-themed one, featuring two very famous WH40k characters.

I'm putting on hold all my other projects (including 'Warhatte!!') until this small experiment is done.

There will be no further updates or hints, because I don't want to spoil the surprise. )

P.S.
'Warhatte' is doing fine. I've made several sketches and created new characters, including Sonic Blaster and Flamer.
