Today I wanted to talk about upcoming posts and other projects that are taking a lot of time out of my schedule, resulting in a bit of a “stressful” situation for me when it comes to blogging and content creation. It’s not exactly stress but I don’t know which posts to publish first and which will come later and what games to review and which series to continue and all of that… and then there’s the YouTube video (with a new video coming up tonight)… but I’ll have to stay on the ball and make that work, which is why I figured I should give y’all a status update on what’s going on behind the scene at Indiecator, essentially.
So, first things first: It’s not stress. It’s just about planning and time management. University is keeping me quite busy and the little time I have for blog posts today is not enough for a review, despite my original plans. At the same time, I noticed that this month’s Humble Choice is out already (Spoilers! It’s great!) and I’ll have to write a post on that soon-ish… but before that, I’ll have to cover other things first.
Those other things are keys I got from developers and publishers. I have them installed and I’m ready to roll essentially and to revue them but I didn’t get to it quite yet. I have played two releases already but while one of the posts was scheduled for today, I ended up changing the plans since something went wrong with the pictures that I needed, so I’ll have to redo that bit and I wasn’t quite happy with it. Instead, I’ll have to move that to tomorrow. Really excited about these two titles that I got to play already before they were announced, thanks to the publisher, Neon Doctrine. Meanwhile, there is also another Beta that I have access to and that I wanted to post about by someone who worked on Bioshock Infinite before… and it’s cute and amazing and I’m looking forward to that.
There are also a fair few reviews planned for the next few days, including SNKRX, A Nightmare’s Trip, RONIN, Vane, Smile For Me, Lambs on the Road, and MidBoss. Among those are some newer additions to my library as well as a bunch of games that I loved before they were cool… or rather that I love and that I find cool while nobody has ever played them before. Anyways, really looking forward to that.
Before those games, however, I’ll need to first make two posts on two games I got access to, weeks ago, as well as another post on that aforementioned Beta… and then there’s also the Humble Choice post, so, looking forward to that. After that’s sorted, I’ll review those other games eventually… and then I’ll also get out some Manga/Anime reviews that I’ve been meaning to write for ages now. I’m really looking forward to that.
Other plans for the near future include some work on a (hold your socks) newsletter that you may want to subscribe to once it’s ready. Essentially, it will come out weekly and summarise the posts from each week and what happened on the streams. There will be screenshots and media present, probably, of stuff that didn’t make it into the reviews, as well as behind the scenes information that doesn’t necessarily belong in a blog post.
And well, I’m streaming right now quite often whenever I don’t study, and we raised 40$ already, which is a ton, actually, and I’m looking forward to raising more for The Trevor Project!
Anyways, I just wanted to make this post and I’m looking forward to writing about more games, although I’m not sure if I should maybe take a break or change something about the length of my posts or the effort I put in. I’m certainly not efficient enough, I think, so it’s all causing me a bit of a pain in the arse because I end up postponing blog posts and/or creating more reasons to procrastinate, which is… an issue.
Oh well, I also have a plant now called Bellatrix and I love her and she’s amazing. I don’t know why but I’m really happy to have a plant in my room again and I hope that she lives a long and happy life. Post on that soon-ish, too.
Hope you enjoyed this one! Quick little update, essentially. If you want to get your Humble Choice goodness earlier, you may want to check out Naithin’s post on it. I’m sure I know what game is gonna be on rank 1 for him and while it may not be published just yet, he’ll probably get it out before me this time around!
