So, reason being, and my old regular readers (are you guys even still around?) know that I almost never post my personal life stuff on here, but I got married, started a family, switched careers, and haven’t had much time to even think about the poor blog. That said, things are starting to stabilize and aside from PC reviews, I plan to start putting in some current gen console reviews as well. I’ll get into that later.
Before I get any further, I want to give a huge, from-the-bottom-of-my-black-heart “thank you!” to an awesome blogger that goes by mh4wp. You can find his blog right over here! He nominated me back in June of last year for the Liebster Award and it means a lot, so I wanted to really say thank you again. Not just in a comment tucked away in an old review or some obscure place. Also, he’s got a book in the works about the political science of video games, which sounds awesome. I absolutely encourage you, not only to check out the book, but also the blog. Again, thank you so much for the nomination. It put me over the moon, even if I was 8 months late to the party.
In less exciting news, the console reviews I mentioned earlier will focus on Playstation 4 and its exclusives. Don’t worry, I won’t shun the multiplatform games. I won’t be able to review Mass Effect: Andromeda (and its glorious, juicy multiplayer co-op) if I do something as silly as that. Side note: I believe I also heard rumors on the wind of Marvel Heroes coming to consoles? It’d make sense given their beta testing phase of controller usage. If it does go through, I’ve got my fingers crossed for the ability to link my PC account to my PS4. I really don’t want to level 3/4 of the cast to 60 again. I mean, I would, but I don’t want to.
Ok, ok. Let’s address the big, fat elephant in the room. The Nuzlocke. Yes, I know. I FUBAR’d that one yet again. I just don’t think it’s been long enough since the original. I don’t have the drive for it again…yet. I know it was probably the most popular part of this blog. I also know I’ve horrendously failed Lord Emperor Branga by not completing my end of it and leaving his mud puddle garbage frog to rot in its PC storage bank indefinitely. It’s ok, though. Charles wasn’t exactly going places anyway.
Oh, jumping back to the console reviews and such (tangent thinking, even when you think you’re on the train after it hops off the rails, you’re not. Yay.), given that I can record video and take screenshots easily with the PS4, I’ll be using both features for future reviews on the system. I absolutely intend to make some videos for my YouTube channel (yea, I’ve got one of those. It’s right over here! Yea, it’s pretty small still.), such as Let’s Plays and, possibly, reviews. We’ll see how the video reviews go, I’ve been wanting to do that for a long time. Anyway, my first target in this whole new, crazy plan is the PS4 exclusive: Until Dawn. I know, it’s old at this point, but honestly, it’s a huge part of why I bought my first PS4 a few years ago. Of course, that one got sold, and the game hadn’t even been released yet, so no harm, no foul, I suppose. Anyway, with the new PS4, Until Dawn, and a huge amount of love for both, I’m setting my sights on it. I might also try to shoe in some older Resident Evil reviews, too. RE2 and Nemesis, most likely. I wouldn’t mind doing Code Veronica, too, if I could. Oh, and REVII, you’re on my list too, sucka. Better what yo’self.
I think that just about covers everything for now. Yes, I’m going to try and keep myself in check and the blog alive this time (my wife will crack the whip if I don’t). It should be infinitely easier now with the hours I’m working these days. No more wild and crazy schedules for this guy.
That’s all for now. You folks have fun, take care, and I’ll see you next time.
