Hey there everybody!
Man, it’s been a while. Hard to believe it is already June. The year truly has flown by.
I figured I would throw together a post to give a bit of an update on where we are at and where we are going.
Bad news is that there has been such a long break. Ultimately, I have had a ton of things going on with work and the personal life and for lack of a better term motivational issues have limited production on the various projects I’m working on with this blog.
The good news? I plan for that to end right now! So here is the plan for the various aspects of this site so you all have an idea.
Long Distance Drinking: Will continue on as it has been going. This really has been the only thing that hasn’t dragged to a halt. The goal is to get it to release on a more regular, every-other-week schedule, preferrably on Tuesdays. We have a few ideas that we are going to be messing around with on the cast, so as always, let us know what you think!
GOON Gamecast: It has been a long while for this hasn’t it… Well, Game On Oblivous Noobs, because we are getting back in action this month. We have one veeeerrrrrryyyy old episode that has our in-depth review of Rogue Legacy. The goal for that is for it to be live in the next week and a half (aiming for June 7). At that point, GOON as you knew it will be complete…
The New GOON Gamecast: Given the long wait between episodes, we wanted to get things moving with the podcast and have revamped it a bit. We are aiming less for the marathon sessions of some of the previous episodes and settling in on approximately 1 to 1.5 hour episodes with a bit more of a traditional set of segments. The goal is to also hit a every-other-week schedule for releases, either on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. We’re aiming for Episode 1 to be out shortly after the Rogue Legacy episode (it is already recorded, just need to get the beast out of the way). It will still include Tom, Lance and myself, so no worries there. Just a streamlined focus to the shows from our initial aims.
Videogame Posts: One of the biggest struggles I have had was finding a structure for how to write about the various games I’m playing. Coupling this with my huge gaming back-log, I ended up coming up with an idea. My focus each month will be playing through games on my back-log, focusing on working through games of the same series each month. So, starting with June, I am playing through the Borderlands series. So, there will be at least one post a week (aiming for two) that will be relating specifically to the things I am seeing in games from that series. Aside from that, there will also be posts of other random things I am playing too if I get a good idea.
Tabletop Game Posts: There has been a lot happening with Tabletop gaming recently… My goal is to put up a post a week about a topic that strikes me on those. I am aiming for Wednesdays or Thursdays with these posts. Plan on the next few to be about the Warhammer Fantasy new edition on its way and my thoughts or speculation about it. I am also hoping sometime in the future to do some video content of various tabletop gaming topics and those will be shared here as well.
Movie and TV Show Posts: These will probably be a bit fewer and further between. Similar to before, I am planning on throwing out my instant opinions if a movie really strikes me. Then, I will see what other topics or ideas I find interesting with that and write about it about once a month.
June may be a bit of a struggle, but I’m really hoping to get more stuff written and out there. There will be some rough edges on the posts, but if I’m going to be looking at getting a quantity of things posted, there will be a few errors here or there. Similar to terrorism, if you see something, say something and I’ll fix it.
Also, if there are any ideas you want me to weigh in on, just throw it out there. I am also sure Tom will be throwing some posts up from time-to-time as well to get things out there.
So, I hope I can get more stuff out there moving forward and utilize this space much more effectively. There are a lot of things I know that I want to do past what we are talking about, but this is the baby steps to get in that direction.
