Small Update On Some Future Things and Stuff

Apologies that updates have been a wee bit on the slow side as of late. I hope to fix that soon. But since things have been slow, I thought I’d share some updates on things I’m planning for this site in the not-too-distant future, as well as some changes I’ve been contemplating. Let’s blast through them, shall we?

  • I am indeed starting piecing together my list of favorite video games. Because that’s a thing I’ve been saying for a while. Can’t say when it will be done though.
  • I also would still like to make a joint list of “greatest games of all time” with some of my fellow bloggers, if we can find a way to communicate on such a thing (why doesn’t WordPress have direct messages again?).
  • I hope to start reviewing movies a bit more frequently.
  • I plan to start reviewing TV series, probably by seasons, while maybe highlighting exceptional (or not-so exceptional) episodes.
  • I have still been considering changing my rating system from the current ‘.5’ system to a whole number system. Or my humorous-but-serious “mostly whole number” system, which would be a whole number system but with the ‘9.5’ score intact. But I may just keep things as they are.
  • While I do hope to continue climbing the centennial ranks with my video game reviews, I do see my purchases of new gaming releases shrinking come 2019. Seeing as I don’t get paid to do this, video games remain an expensive hobby and – these days – an incredibly time-consuming one. And I’m the kind of person who likes to take their time with games, so I can see myself reviewing a few notable games released in a given year, with handfuls of older, shorter titles (or shorter indie titles) comprising more and more of my reviews. I just can’t dedicate myself to one 100+ hour game after another like I used to.
  • Like my list of favorite games, I’ve also been promising to do some form of videos, and I plan to try that out soon. I’ll start with something simple, and if that goes well, I may just expand on that. My reviews will still primarily be in written form, so I’ll think of other things to do in the video format.
  • I plan on getting back into sprite-making and to further my studies on video game design. As I’ve stated ad nauseam, I’d like to create video games someday, so I best start dedicating more time to that. I may even use this site as a means to show/talk about my progress. Or maybe I could make another site for that, if you good people feel that would get in the way of things here.
  • I have also been tempted to share some of my drawings and/or creative ideas on this site. I am no great artist, nor do I pretend to be. But I like to draw weird, cartoonish creatures and cute characters, so I dunno. Maybe a sketch or two here and there. Or maybe not.
  • I have contemplated making simple changes like making sure to do a weekly movie review (Movie Monday?) and game review. Not that such a weekly review would be the only day for a review in any given week, but it would be a consistent one.

Okay, there’s some stuff. I’m going to try and write a review or something more meaningful next time, I promise. …Or maybe something else about Waluigi.

About themancalledscott

Born of cold and winter air and mountain rain combining, the man called Scott is an ancient sorcerer from a long-forgotten realm. He’s more machine now than man, twisted and evil. Or, you know, he could just be some guy who loves video games, animations and cinema who just wanted to write about such things.
