Is there anything I can change that could improve it and reduce cost or is there something that needs changing to be able to run games like Minecraft at a high setting?
For some reason, when I was thinking of a new username from Adam5366 I liked the word Parallax. I switched it round to Xallarap but I prefered to have the 'X' at the end so it became Xallarax (I wanted the pronunciation of Zallarax). I used Xallarax in a game called Pocket Legends but people kept calling me Allara which sounded like a girls username. In the end, I wanted people to pronounce it with a 'Z' at the beginning and so it became, Zallarax.
I thought I'd join in and have a go at making a banner. Trying to think of ideas of how things should be layed out was harder than I thought. Anyone have any ideas on how to improve this? I edited the lighting on the character to fit the background almost perfectly. I also added a motion blur behind the logo and used the match colour to get a similar gradient colour to the background. Then I added a gaussian blur to the background.
DLC for Assassin's Creed III is finally available on the eShop, they include The Hidden Secrets and The Battle Hardened packs but europeans will have to wait until 11pm to actually look at it due to the daft age restriction.
