So, it looks like I won't be recording tonight. I forgot all about the PPV, and then I had a couple other things that I wanted to get done, so I don't think that recording is going to happen today. I'm not really under much pressure, though, since I haven't had the last 10 videos watched, another day before the next one isn't going to hurt. Plus, I'm thinking about searching for Cricket off-camera, so you don't see me flailing around helplessly for half an hour or so again.
Not much else exciting to report. Cable and I didn't get to do anything last night. He ended up at work for a bit over an hour and a half extra. Not ideal by any standards.
I did download the Fallout 4 Creation Kit, so there may eventually be an overpowered weapons run, and whatever else I think about adding to the game. We will see, though. I'm not sure I've played enough of FO4 to be ready to mod it up yet. I think I went through FNV like four times before I started adding mods, so...you know. We will see, though. Maybe in the meantime I'll come up with something cool to add. Though I wouldn't hold my breath on that one. Hehe. Besides that, I really haven't gotten much gaming stuff done in the past couple days. I think that's going to change tomorrow, though. I want to get some gaming time in.
That's all for now.
Just making a secondary post out to test something that could be useful. Maybe.
So, I have a good bit of news! I can actually run Doom on my PC just fine. Even though the specs say I need a better hard drive, it works no prob. At least, as far as I got into it, it worked just fine. Now I just need to practice it some.
As for Far Harbor...I haven't really decided what to do yet. I suppose I will go ahead and do that, but I still want to get a couple things taken care of before we start that. I'm just kinda watching videos tonight, but I will probably record something tomorrow. Hopefully, I can find what I'm looking for. We shall see.
Not much else has gone on, really. Just kinda hanging around and all of that. Cable says he wants to do something after he gets home from work, but we'll see. I suppose it depends on how bad work was tonight, and how tired he is.
Anyways, nothing much exciting to report, at least not right now.
So, as you may have noticed, I've worked on the site a little bit today. A new, more compact menu, and a couple new graphics for you to feast your eyes on. I'm still thinking about more changes. I may modify the top graphic to hide/remove the Gears Of War part on the left side with something else. We'll see. I am not totally sure what to put there, though. I suppose I will figure it out at some point, but I'm not sure right now.
I really don't have much else to say right now, but keep your eyes here, I may have more to say later.
So, I suppose it's time to get real in here. As you know, if you know me, or if you have read my F.A.Q., you know that I have major depression. I tend to play games as some sort of therapy. I had also long been interested in recording my gameplay. As you might know, I recorded Ultimate Doom and Doom 2 several years ago. Then a few years later, I posted it on YouTube. I actually never initially intended to post it up. Mostly because at the time I didn't even have internet access, so I kinda did all that recording, and then just set the files aside for a long time. I think that was around 2010 that I recorded them, and 2013 when I put them on YouTube. I was kinda hoping that it would get watched once I put it up. I guess I figured that all sorts of other game video get watched all the time, so mine probably would too. That...never happened. I didn't post anything up again for a long time, not until last year when I started my Fallout: New Vegas run. Just like Doom and Doom 2 before it, it really hasn't been watched. Then I did Fallout 4. I started the day it came out, right after it went live on Steam. I mentioned before how people had videos out before I did somehow. But, I carried on. I thought that maybe since it's a new game, more people will be looking for videos, and since I started day 1, I would get at least some views out of it. That...didn't happen, either. Automatron didn't help. I didn't really bother much with Wasteland Workshop. Far Harbor came out today, and...I'm not sure that I really care. I did a video last night to try and get ready for that, but I failed spectacularly. Which means another video before Far Harbor. Of course, that really doesn't matter. No one is watching. No one. I don't even remember the last video that actually had a view. I'm not even sure if any of my FO4 videos have more than one view. I could look, but I don't know what good that would do. Anyways...I'm not getting views. I don't know why. I really have no clue. And that depresses me, more than I already am. Of course, when I get this depressed, I don't really want to even game. And when I do want to game, I don't want to record, but I know I should, so I just don't do anything. I should have been ready for Far Harbor a couple weeks ago.
It makes me want to not record. And maybe I shouldn't. I'm not getting views, and the few that do happen, I'm apparently not retaining them. So maybe I should stop. I have almost no subsrcibers. I got no follows on Twitter from this, and the worst part...I'm writing this, and no one is reading it. Well, almost no one. I can think of one person.
So, should I keep doing this? I do enjoy it, but I'm just talking to myself. I have lots of ideas for games, but if no one is going to watch, what's the point? I don't know. Maybe I can look up some tutorials on how to get more viewers.
I don't know. Maybe someone has words of advice for me?
Not that I ever do. Actually, I'm not even sure what I mean. Hehe. At any rate, there hasn't been a whole lot going on. Mostly, I've just been watching YouTube videos. That's not a bad thing, I suppose, but that means I haven't really been playing any games. That also means I haven't been recording anything. Of course, right now I'm just waiting until Far Harbor comes out to really record again. I do want to get a little better set up, however, so I can be all ready for it. I think we need to go and get some stuff to repair my armor, but I'm not positive. I mean, I haven't been too great at looting junk, so we're a little low on some stuff. I also think that we may be a little low on cash, too. That could be a problem to get something that I want, but maybe I can figure something out. I think we have a lot of ammo, so I could sell some of that off. We'll see. I'll take a look at the game tomorrow and see if I can come up with some sort of plan so that we can get good and ready.
I don't have a whole lot of other stuff to talk about really. I have games I want to play, and videos I want to watch, and recordings to make, and all sorts of stuff. I guess I'm at least getting the video watching done. That's a start, I suppose. Maybe I'll switch it up some tomorrow and get some gaming in. It sounds like a good plan, at least. Maybe I'll even work on the website tomorrow. I do have a few things that I want to do on that, of course. I haven't really found a new theme for it, but I may do a little modification to what's currently there. We shall see. I have some thoughts, but I don't know that I will get around to that stuff anytime soon.
Anyways, that's about all I have right now. I know that's not a whole lot, but it's better than nothing, I suppose. Hehe.
