I suppose this is something I might do as a little tradition for myself as it's fun to look back on these inperticuler.
A year later and essentially nothing has changed, I tried (and failed) to go back to Murdered: Soul Suspect but due to a bad mix of just getting stuck and my commentary being rather shite my interest dropped and it fell by the way-side. New N' Tasty is something I've slightly re-visited on the PS4 and Vita but I really found it just as bad and the prospect of getting all the way back to where I was on PC was painful, long story short I'll continue both of these games and hopefully finish a damn LP for once but I'm not going to rush myself, not like there is an audiance holding their breath so I figure I may as well pace myself.
I was working pretty hard on a new 4by3Gaming video, it took me far, FAR to long to finally sit down, finish the game and then script it all. So I have a finished script, I have all the footage (at least of the game, no/little Live Action footage) and a whole lot of editting to do as well assuming I get that Live Action footage filmed. I'm kind of thinking to myself that it hasn't turned out the way I was hoping which (among other more lazy reasons) has been holding me back from pushing forward with filming. Down the rabbit hole.
On top of all that I can only see myself working MORE in this new year, that's why most of the stuff I've done it live streamed - not editing required just sit down and play, have fun and boom its all up and ready for thumbnails and the like (It's bloody fantastic and sure as hell beats listening to my own voice for an hour editing a twenty minute LP) but I'll talk more about that in this next bit.
Looking back at 2016!
Well shiiiiiiiiiiiiite, 2016 was pretty good for me personally (and an awful year for the world over) I mean I didn't get to really make much but it has been a welcome respite in a way, as I mentioned in last years Birthday/New Year post it's really easy to feel burnt out when creating content, especially when you're a moron like me and try to push out two LP's and something like Kvasir Hiest Squad, while playing AND editing every second of it all and that fatigue seemed to last a long ol' time as my enthusiasm for creating videos kind of nose-dived in 2016, I've had idea's sure and alot of them I've partially created in this time, hell some of it I've finished and just not released, but a majority of my content for the year was streamed.
So to explain, in 2015 I really went headlong into creating video's, now there had been bouts in previous years but this time was different, in hindsight I think I was burying myself into lots of work to fill a rather large hole in my personal life and to be honest I probably just ended up stressing myself out, making silly deadlines for video's that only me and my friends really watch but ultimatly putting my mind to use rather than sitting and stewing on bad feelings. Maybe not the healthiest approach, especially when I was pumping out video's that I wasn't that happy with or even if I was finding the editing to be a chore, but alas that's how it went down, so when 2016 rolled around and I'd had a good amount of time to dig myself out of that hole, I decided it was easier to chill and just go at my own pace.
Oh yeah and I went from like a normal of 25hr week to a 35hr week over the course of last year so that definetly took it's toll on my bother to make content, free time becomes quite the commodity when you suddenly find yourself at work most everyday. (Skills to pay the bills folks)
So in retrospect it's been a fairly relaxed year for me, at least outside of work and I've had some good times playing Guild Wars 2, Overwatch, FINAL FANTASY 15 WHICH WAS FU- alright, I'll save my gushing praise for a L.O.R I think but phew! It was a stinker like FF13, thank bloody chirst.
(PS 23 is lame and not really that important of an age, nor was 22 but it has that shitty Taylor Swift song so... I dunno, so I guess birthdays really stop being that big a deal past 21)
