Current Work Update

Hi all,

Just a quick rundown of what I’m working on and what to expect.

Tuesdays will continue to be Tanks Tuesdays for the foreseeable future, though Armored warfare videos may become more common.

Wednesdays will continue Warship Wednesdays as well as World of Warships makes its way toward release.

Next few weeks on Mon,Wed,Fri, Minecraft the windows 10 edition beta achievements will continue I would guess 3-4 weeks to get most of them complete.

Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday X-COM : Enemy Within lets play in the works.

I was going to do BioShock as the spiritual successor to System Shock 2, but the ambient music throws a copyright notice, so It’s been shelved a while.  I also shelved Pool of Radiance for the time being as its probably 80-120 hours of gameplay and equal numbers of hours of editing to get the production quality to the level I’m happy with.

I’ve done a few Streaming tests with Dan from Ottomobiehl Gaming, and I believe we will start doing a 1 or 2 times a week COOP stream that will appear on our respective sites.  We are looking at game options that offer fun gameplay for a duo to run through, Diabo III, Borderlands, Borderlands 2 and the Pre-Sequal are at the top of the list, feel free to suggest others  that you think would be fun to watch.

School starts on monday I may post up some of my artwork from the drawing class, but we’ll see how it goes.

Programming on RELM, RELAX and REBB are slow going as my schedule is pretty full most days.

Current Work Revised

Minecraft Let’s Play will move forward, however the Pool of Radiance is being delayed. I recorded a few test episodes and to really accomplish anything in-game requires 30-45 minutes of playtime and another 60-90 minutes of editing time (map, updating, etc.)  I haven’t yet decided what will replace it, but the Minecraft episodes will run Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday starting on August 25th.  Whatever replaces POR will run Monday, Wednesday, and Friday starting August 24th.

So the current Schedule looks like this:

System Shock 2: Daily through the 29th of August

Tanks Tuesday: Every Tuesday

Warship Wednesday: Every Wednesday

Minecraft: The Windows 10 Beta, Completing the Acheivements.  Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday from the 25th until complete.

TBD: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, until complete.

I’ll keep you all posted.

Current Work

Youtube with Bill:

Let’s Play System Shock – Release is complete.

Let’s Play System Shock 2 – All episodes uploaded to Youtube for daily release through August 29th.

Let’s Play Minecraft Windows 10 Beta – Will begin recording this series today.

Let’s Play Pools of Radience with Maps – Will begin recording this series today as well.  This series will put up a map alongside the game play so viewers will be able to follow our progress  as we move through Phalan.  There will be a lot of fast forwarding and editing for this series, as mapping anything is slow. I hope it adds that little something extra to the series, and if it is well received, I will do the Might & Magic Series, the rest of the Gold Box Games, Bard’s Tales, and Wizardry the same.

Rook Entertainment LLC:

Work continues on RELAX and RELM, but both have taken a backseat to Youtube work at the moment.

Other:

School starts again in a few weeks. I’m hoping the drawing class I’m taking will allow me to do some custom artwork for both the Youtube channel and my company.

Let’s Play System Shock 2

Well, I finished recording System Shock 2 today.  It looks like it will be 27 parts, though at least 2 of them will be cut in half due to being 40 minutes long.  I’m not sure any of the others will require the same treatment.  The first episode of System Shock 2 went live on the first and it will run daily through most of August.

Tanks Tuesdays and Warships Wednesdays will continue as well.  I still have 11 SS2 video’s to edit and upload to Youtube, but I should have the next game or two picked by time I finish editing those.

Thanks for watching.
