Off-Week Update (for Ep. 23)
Ok, I’ve been really bad about this, haven’t I? Blame the sudden desire to make supplemental shows. Speaking of that, I’ll get back to that in a minute.
First off, those who follow me (not just the show) on Twitter will have probably figured out I was in Arizona in mid-May. That cut into some time for Episode 22, which I why I chose to do Brick-Force, despite my only just having done a Sidequest on it.
Going back further, I’m not entirely surprised to see that both Project Powder, and Brick-Force were met with slightly lower than average views. The former being an unknown, abandoned game, and the latter being already covered by me once.
Of course, there was also the Sword Girls review, that yes, WAS supposed to be the first “Browser-Based” I did, but Justin’s enthusiasm in the game had me pass the torch to him, so we kinda co-wrote it, and he used my show format to do the video. If you want some fun trivia, the card Justin was supposed to show when I said, “I want that card so badly” was “Hot Springs Luthica” a MUCH racier card than the one he choose. It’s also the same card I’m VERY SLOWLY grinding toward. I haven’t been playing it as much is all.
The first Browser-Based instead was Realm of the Mad God, which I mentioned in the video, I was FLOODED with requests to do that dropped off just as suddenly. In fact the same goes for a lot of the “new to Steam” games that came out that February.
In case you want to know what I’m working on next, it’s been guessed correctly a few times, and VASTLY INCORRECTLY by one person. Yes, I’m reviewing Aion, the last former Sub game I bought on a whim…. ok, technically the second (LOTRO, Aion, Champions Online, then Star Trek Online) but my last to review. Install was a NIGHTMARE and it seems to be that way for a lot of people I talked to. I, no joke, had to run my PC in safe mode just to install it. It also crashed on me today, but I’m hoping that was a fluke. It hasn’t changed at ALL from last I remember playing it… but I still have yet to delve into the true game, so I’ll see if that changes. Episode will probably be late again, but I’ll do what I can.
…and I’ll try to get these done a bit more often, too.
