One door closes and another opens. Last year had some of what I could think would be my sadder moments, but I got through it and things turned out better in the end thanks to friends, family and not giving up on myself. I have great friends, family, a job I’ve actually been enjoying and amazing co-workers who all respect one another. It’s not all perfect but it’s nowhere close to what I expected to end up with, and for that I’m happy.
As usual I don’t have any new years resolutions outside of 1920×1080 since I don’t really believe in doing those. But I have been putting together a list of things I want to do regarding video making.
I’m not sure if I want to do reviews still, I’ve been having fun recording my gameplay with friends and sharing it. But I think I might take more time with those types of videos and add something more special. Everyone else records their gameplay with colorful commentary, and for the most part they facecam it. I won’t be doing that because my face has been known to break cameras out of sheer horror (and no one needs to see my eyes), but I might do something with SFM to create that type of experience. You’ll understand in my next video.
Another thing I want to do is maybe do some vlogging. I get hour lunches quite frequently and as I’ve said before I bring my gaming laptop to work for entertainment. I was thinking of recording some gameplay depending on what it is, why I’m playing particular said game, and if I like it or not… maybe some other things. Perhaps I could call it “What I had for lunch today” or something along those lines. If anyone has other suggestions I’d love to hear them.
There’s more regarding videos I’d like to explore, but I’ll take it in baby steps. I’m a busy person these days and don’t want to overload my plate. Which btw has some really nice brass on it.
There are some other things I want to do too when I find the time, like put up some more servers (like Starbound and some Serious Sam’s when I can get around to it) and other technical stuff.
Then there’s things I want to accomplish under my screwoff category, like finish more games in my collection. I only finished one last year and it was Shadow Warrior (one of the greatest FPS’s of all time btw, looking forward to the sequel!). The rest of what I spent my time on were games that really don’t have endings. Like Skyrim, ESO, Gmod, Carmageadon, TF2 etc. Skyrim for me was a gift and a curse at the same time. All that modding, adventure, soaking in the lore, making my game as ridiculous as possible. I mean… At some point this was a female Khajit.
But this year, more games are there, more waiting to be played and modded, and between my Keyboard and Mouse, and my Steam Controller I have fewer excuses.
I should probably see a dentist about my teeth…
