Earlier last month I signed up to receive the Oyatsu Box, a monthly subscription for a box of a random assortment of treats straight from Japan. In the box was one particular item that looked like a packet of ramen. Not necessarily out of the question for a box like this, but this packet was actually ramen candy.
I found a store on eBay that sold some fairly hard-to-find Japanese game art books and decided I'd order some and check 'em out. I'm a huge collector of art books, mostly because I love seeing all the process that goes into the creation of the games that I love so much.
I recently bought a PS Vita. I know, I know, "The Vita has no games!!" but I actually beg to differ. The PS Vita is a brilliant handheld.
AI've been meaning to write a bit about my computer setup and what I use to do work, game, and stream. I hope this is of some use to you, but if it isn't this is a fun little post.
The Monthly Roundup is a collection of noteworthy things that happened in the month that didn't warrant their own post! Without further ado, here is June's Roundup!
It's been almost a month since I started the 1 Game A Month challenge and … it hasn't gone particularly as planned. While I did start out fairly strong, it became clear that I just wasn't up for the challenge. No excuses.
Well these past 9 months have been an adventure. If you were curious as to where I'd gone, rest assured I'm still alive. (Though I will say the journey to get here almost killed me.) The reason for all the silence is that I had accepted a job to work at Twitch as a UI/UX Designer and lets just say it's one hell of an opportunity. I realized I never wrote about it at length (or wrote about much on here) so I collected my thoughts about the process of getting here in hopes that someone might find it useful or entertaining.
I forgot to post these, so the "publish date" on this is from a while back. Sorry!
This was my first PAX as an actual Twitch Employee! I have been to previous PAXes and hung out with some of the employees prior to my start date but this was my first actual "perk" event as a Twitch employee.
I'm in the market for a Playstation 4. Unfortunately, it hasn't been on sale online anywhere since a week before Christmas. So of course I just wrote a script that periodically checks the stock for me on BestBuy, and if it is in stock it sends me a text alerting me.
Those who create games often say that games are an expression of what they feel. So when I remembered that my one-year anniversary with Reid Main was a month away, I thought of the perfect gift that he would enjoy, and that I would enjoy making: a game.
