Quick Update (sorry it's been so long) - 01-22-17
Been really busy and basically life problems kept piling up on me, so here's what I've been working on since October 2015:
-The 025 Diaries is now Contestant 25. The main character of this series is Dakota Warren, inspired by my personality, like before with Aaron Kirsch, a 16-year-old charged by his U.S. Secret Service agent parents with the task of saving the world. This story has many elements of The 025 Diaries from 2015 carried over and revolves around the history of video games, and still has the villainous Sterling clan who works for the mysterious mega-corporation 3654Tech as well as a wacky cast of characters determined to keep Dakota on his toes throughout the adventure while he finds missing video game controllers as part of an investigation by the FBI.
-Warrior25 is now The Gearbox Diaries. The main character here is Darren Wilder, also inspired by my personality and my passion for cars. The story here revolves around the sudden disappearance of famous TV and movie cars, including Danny Krueger's Subaru Impreza WRX STi from Born 2 Race (played by Joseph Cross), Johnny Tran's modified Honda S2000 from The Fast and the Furious (played by Rick Yune), Ricky Bobby's #62 Me Ford Taurus from Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (played by Will Ferrell), Cole Trickle's #46 City Chevrolet Chevrolet Lumina from Days of Thunder (played by Tom Cruise), etc.
One of the main antagonists, the ringleader responsible for the thefts is rumored to be driving what appears to be Nathan Scott's 1984 Honda Accord hatchback from One Tree Hill (played by James Lafferty) and has caught the attention of the FBI and the CIA as well as Interpol. They are determined to keep this from becoming an international incident, and they need Darren's help--as always--to save the world. Another main antagonist is inspired by Brian Tee and Rick Yune (both from The Fast and the Furious series of movies) mixed with James Lafferty (One Tree Hill, Crisis, Underground, etc.) that will also keep Darren on his toes--and rumor has it both antagonists have ties to the mysterious 3654Tech as in Contestant 25.
Like Contestant 25, The Gearbox Diaries also has a wacky cast of characters determined to keep Darren on his toes throughout his adventure while he multitasks in the most treacherous, extreme conditions possible between trying to become a stuntman in Hollywood and becoming a professional race driver.
-I am also working on something new: painting cars for every mod in the PC game NASCAR Racing 2003 Season, featuring characters from both Contestant 25 and The Gearbox Diaries in the world of NR2003. I have been working on this project since March 2016. Similarly, I am doing the same thing in other games such as WWE 2K17, but only for Contestant 25 characters, as they created their own Superstars in the world of WWE in said game--the PS4 version.
And yes, I must try to update here more often -- but there's just way too much stuff going on that's preventing me from doing so, and I'd like for that to stop. Until next time, WM86/DFW :)
