I Wish I Was Better at Social Media and YouTube
It’s been a little bit of time since I’ve posted on here, but hopefully that just means more stuff has happened while I’ve been away. And that’s like 50% true.

Let’s start with the Games. I still haven’t gone back to work so I have a lot of time to play. I’m pretty sure they’re just hoping I don’t remember I work there and they just won’t ask me to come back. Kinda like when you owe someone money and you just don’t mention it and hope enough time passes that the knowledge just fades into the aether.

The majority of my time has gone into Red Dead 2 just because there is so much to do on that game, and while I rank it as one of the best games I’ve ever played from like a design and cinematic perspective, but basing part of the gameplay on RNG related collectibles I think is a way to artificially lengthen what is already easily a 100+ hour game if you’re exploring, doing side missions and taking everything in.

Thankfully, I’ve done all the stuff pertaining to collecting the exotic orchids and found all the animals for the hunting requests, I’m currently doing the very final part of the It’s Art achievement where the squirrel statue ends up on top of the mountain (I do not get that reference by the way of the squirrel randomly disappearing, if it even is a reference).

I’m also working on killing the 18 Bears by going to the spot by Wallace Station, but it just takes ages with all the sleeping and reloading save stuff. I have a Day 1 Xbox One so load times are not my friend. Once I’ve done the Gambling and Bandit Challenges, I’ll have reached 100% completion.

I also started the Game Pass title The Touryst, which caught my attention because I liked the aesthetic and it was a small install size, so I was like “Yeah sure why not” and it’s actually a fun little game. It’s nice to play a game that’s self-contained and not trying to take all my money with MTXs or wants to dominate all my time. The achievements are more or less contained within the stuff you do for the main “story” of the game so anyone looking for a fun game that’s not too taxing of a max, I would recommend.

After 6 months of resisting, I finally caved and downloaded Warzone seeing as all my friends play it and we nagging me to get on board. I’m way out of line with the meta but I can see how its appealing and I do have fun with it, I just don’t think BRs are the genre for me, same with JRPGs, I’ve just never been a fan. I’m not knocking anyone that likes them (or JRPGs), just not my kind of game.

It’s also been years since I played a Call of Duty regularly, so I’m pretty rusty. Plus you’re playing against Playstation players and PC M+KB players so it’s gonna be even tougher than normal. It’s still a laugh to play a game with my friends again though, it’s been a long time since I have so it’s nice to get that social aspect of gaming back.

IRL Stuff

I’ve been keeping busy running the YouTube Channel, adding in stuff like social media has expanded the work load quite a bit. I think we’ve hit a bit of a wall with our natural growth, so we either have to start making different/more mainstream content or sink some money into paid advertising, or both. To be honest, it’ll probably be the content because right now our catalogue of content isn’t vast, so a huge influx of followers wouldn’t do much good since there wouldn’t be anything to keep them there.

My friends have made me a custom PC shopping list, so I’ll be spending the next few months sinking money into that, having a capable PC set up for once and maybe I actually start thinking about making content. But hey, me and everyone else right? “IM GON BE A REEL GOOD VEEDEO GAME UTUBBER AND MICK SOOO MOOCH DOOLER BILLS” (I’ve been rewatching a lot of old iDubbbz recently).

But yeah, that’s about it. Still trucking along, making stuff and looking for a better job. Our latest Podcast Episode is below, feel free to check it out if you wanna hear Nerds talk about Video Games:

Anyway, thanks for reading. You’re cool.

As Always
