Old year bad, new year good
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 1:58 PM

I guess it’s time to look at the old year in review and the new year in anticipation since I remembered I have a blog!

The spirit moves me to write a little bit to keep some of you who check this site interested!

Another trip around the sun survived!
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 2:38 PM

Today’s my birthday, and I’ll celebrate with a blog post!

I’ve been quiet lately. Part of it is just general negativity the last few years about many things. Some of it is disappointment in MMOs in general. Some of it is not really feeling like I have much to say that people are interested in.

But, let me go over a little bit of what’s happening in my life for those of you still reading.

The new year, fear, and Patreon
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 4:51 PM

It’s almost the new year. Time for a bit of introspection and a different approach to life.

To not bury the lead here: I’ve started a Patreon for my creative work. Click the new banner on my site, or visit my Patreon page to support me.

Let me go into a bit more about why I’m doing this, and why this has been a hard thing for me to do.

Watch a bunch of Gaming Legends later today!
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 12:09 PM

So, a few people including the wonderful Dr. Cat of Origin and Fucadia fame, are doing a “Legends of Gaming” stream later today, starting very soon. It’ll be a “Johnny Carson” style show with many different people coming along to be interviewed, then stick around a bit as others are being interviewed.

Facebook info: https://www.facebook.com/events/191189097992468/

Stream at: http://twitch.tv/doctor_cat

I’m scheduled for 2:15 PM Pacific (5:15 Eastern).

Full schedule inside.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 9:36 PM

I hope everyone out there had a good Thanksgiving. Even if you don’t celebrate it, I hope it was a good day. And, it’s always a good time to stop and reflect on what you’re thankful for.

Let me take a moment to count my blessings.

I just keep getting older
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 3:08 PM

Once again I have survived a full revolution clinging to a ball of dirt and molten metal hurtling through space around a continuous nuclear fusion engine. As with most things, this makes my life sound much more dramatic than it really is. For the non-science nerds out there: it’s my birthday today.

But, as is tradition on my blog, let’s take a look at the past year or so of life.

Today in honor of passing the midpoint of Blaugust 2016, I’ll do an “ask me (almost) anything” thread.

Read the guidelines, and then post a comment!

Negativity and its effect on indie developers
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 8:19 PM

Let me tell you a story about my good friend Dave. He’s a smart guy and an indie game developer. He’s stuck with game development for many years. He finally had a success big enough that he’s working on making games full time.

Dave wants to work on a new game. He’s trying a lot of things. He’s trying some 3D this time instead of going with 2D as he has before. He’s working on some AI-driven stuff, instead of heavily scripted and content-heavy games before.

Dave showed the game to some fellow indie developers. But, you know what he found? Negativity.

And negativity doesn’t help.

Busy for a bit
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 9:25 PM

A confluence of things is keeping me extra busy lately. So, here’s a catch-up post with what’s going on in my life, and why posting might be slow or abbreviated for a bit.

“I’m not sure I understand”
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 6:03 PM

Something a little different tonight. I hope you’ll humor me.

Here’s a bit of creative writing dealing with the things bouncing in my head for a while.
