TL;DR The story for the last 6 months or so

Hello friends!

So I’ve been a little MIA from the blog for the last few months and a fair few things have happened. I’m going to do the abridged version of all of that and then give some updates on shit I’m doing in the future.

I’m still in Texas and stuff is still pretty awesome. A half-year later I’m still absolutely thrilled that I moved from Troy, AL. The place had just become far too toxic and was very much a dead-end.

I was also going to do a Game of the Year 2014 post, but about a third of the way into the post I realized that 2014 was pretty shitty as far as games go. I did beat Persona 4 Golden last year though, so let’s go with that. Persona 4 Golden GOTY every year probably maybe.

I got to go to PAX South as well. It was very different from PAX Prime. It was significantly smaller and there were virtually no AAA production companies there besides Nintendo. It felt much more like a community controlled event, which was great. I got to meet a bunch of casters and YouTube personalities that I hadn’t met before. I had a blast because of that, but if anyone went for just the expo alone I imagine they may have been disappointed.

Late last year I had picked up WoW again with the new expansion that came out. TL;DR there is that it started out pretty fun, but once raiding started it became very clear that Shadow Priest was just shit tier again. Add in the fact that the Shadow Priest rotation was a clunky mess I quit basically as soon as my guild had cleared all the current tier of raid content. It just wasn’t very fun. In order to produce the results I would want, I’d have to play a class that has a really boring rotation compared to the complexity I wanted. I quit instead. MMO wise I’m playing Guild Wars 2 with some RL friends, but I’m probably not going to play too much until at least EQ Next.

I’ve also been playing a lot of board games, and have bought quite a few myself. I may start doing some mini-reviews for board games as well. More on that later I suppose 🙂

So where is my focus now? Mostly back on streaming, but I’ve also got a project I’m going to start working on this year sometime. Mostly I’m just conceptualizing it right now. My current main goal is to improve the quality of my stream. Which means getting some new gear. The schedule is back to Mon – Thursday 7PM – 11PM and Sundays being for Final Fantasy. Speaking of, I ‘rebranded’ the Final Fantasy thing into ‘Series Run Sundays.’ The idea there is that Sundays will be dedicated to me playing through a whole series over the course of several Sundays (and maybe some extra days if I want to continue on an off day or if I get bored on a Saturday). At some point I’ll be streaming on Fridays and it’ll be dedicated to Board Games or D&D, but I’m still trying to figure out how I want to do that. The big thing I’m struggling with is finding a portable way to do an overhead camera for an entire table. Any tips would be appreciated 🙂

The above streaming schedule will start tomorrow (Monday). This week I’ll be streaming more Dying Light coop, Shadows of Mordor, and *maybe* some Dragon Age: Inquisition while I work on clearing up my AAA backlog. Series Run Sunday will be Final Fantasy 7, continuing where we left off. After Final Fantasy series is done I’ll be playing Legend of Zelda, and after that I’ll be playing Resident Evil. I’m pretty pump for all of that. I’ll always have 2 series in the queue (which can be found here) and I’ll update the listing as to which games in the series I plan to run and (hopefully) stream.

A few things that are in the project pipeline: Once I upgrade my webcam I plan on making YouTube videos reviewing/previewing all sorts of games. I’m also in the process of maybe starting a podcast. The podcast thing has been talked about off and on several times though, so we’ll see where that one goes. I’ll also try to update the blog a bit more often, but we know how that tends to go, lol.

As always, for updates on my shenanigans follow me on Twitter and like my Facebook Stream page. Also, feel free to add me to any video game service, my usernames can be found in the ‘About Me’ page.

One last big note, the best way to support my bullshit right now is simple to share my stuff around social media networks. Be it Facebook or Twitter. Any support this way will be a huge boon for helping me grow my little piece of the internet. Greatly appreciate any support, as always :).

Catch you later!

Nintendo Presser E3 2014 Notes

Notes from the Nintendo digital presser!

  • Super Smash Brothers U – Trailer.. thing? ‘Mii fighter’ announced. 3 types, Brawlers (fists), Swordfighters, and Gunner (Arm Cannons/Projectiles). Looks like a lot of the extra minigames and random customization is coming back, along with some new stuff. Oct 3 for 3DS version. Holiday 2014 for Wii U version.
  • Amiibo – Skylander type toys with special chips in them that will cause Wii U systems to recognize figures. ‘Spring to life’ in compatible games. Super Smash Bros Wii U will be the first game to support it. Support for Mario Kart 8 being worked on.
  • Yoshi’s Wooly World – Looks pretty cute, just like Kirby’s Epic Yarn.
  • Captain Toad Treasure Tracker – Super Mario 3D world inspired platformer.
  • Legend of Zelda Wii U – The one screen they showed looked pretty. A lot of moving foilage and stuff. Described as Open World. Cell Shaded cinematic trailer. Still want to see more, but looks like a decent start.
  • Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire remake – Still a thing. Some weird live action/gameplay hybrid trailer.
  • Bayonetta 2 – Still a thing. Gameplay trailer. Get original with purchase of the sequel.
  • Hyrule Warriors – Dev commentary video. Sept 26 date.
  • Kirby and the Rainbow Cruise – 2015 claymation Kirby game.
  • Xenoblade Chronicles X (AKA just X) – Cinematic trailer. HNNNNG
  • Mario Maker – Gameplay Trailer. Create your own Mario worlds. Uses Original Super Mario Bros and New Super Mario Bros U 2D engines it looks like
  • Splatoon – 8 player 4v4 online multiplayer action game. Paintball 3rd person shooter. Use paint to ‘claim’ territory.
  • Final Announcement is Palunteena as a SSBU character.

Sooooooooooooo. Where should I start with this. Of all the stuff they talked about I really only care about Super Smash Brothers U and X really. The little bit of the Wii U Legend of Zelda title seemed interesting and a lot more ‘next gen,’ but I’m not really going to be on board until I see more. I’m not just going to get hype over a mention of a Legend of Zelda game. They showed a lot of platforms that don’t really do anything for me, I am not even close to the target audience for the Amiibo thing, Hyrule Warriors looks neat I guess, and Splatoon was actually kinda cool. Pokemon has basically become Nintendo’s Call of Duty. Seems like a real cash cow franchise they just throw version of out now.

It is probably worth noting that Mario Party 10, and a new Star Fox is available to demo at E3. Mario Party 10 could be fun if they have solid online play. Devil’s Third, a new title from the Ninja Gaiden director, was also announced after the presser as a Wii U exclusive. I found the fact that they didn’t release all of this info during the presser a little weird.

I’ll have a bigger post about the entirety of E3 later this week. I used up most of my lunch break at work for this one :).

Right now as far as pressers go I’m thinking Ubisoft > Microsoft > Sony > Nintendo > EA.
