Save Point March 2018

Hey all, it’s been a while. Rather than try and encapsulate 2 months into 1 I’m going to mainly focus on March.

A few things from February though…

I had an article go up on Kotaku: My Grandiose Quest To Play (and Love) FIFA’s Most Underappreciated Teams. Which involved me breaking down those elaborate region based FIFA tournaments I do with my brother Edwin and explaining the beauty of FIFA (18): it connects us with those around us and the world at large.

I had another article go up on Nerd Much: The Value of Finishing Video Games You Don’t Like where I shared my experiences finishing games I’m not crazy about, what I got out of that, and how this doesn’t mean I finish every game I start (an important distinction).

I GOT A GAMING PC

That’s right; that’s right. It finally happened and wow this has already drastically improved my life. So many more video games are available right at my finger tips and (perhaps more importantly) editing/video recording is so much smoother.

I bought a Cyber Power PC AMD Ryzen 5 1600X which you can watch me unbox on my channel. I linked everything I purchased, in detail, in the description.

Speaking of YouTube

Things have been going great. I’m almost at 250 subscribers so make sure you’ve subscribed if you haven’t already.

I finally got around to doing my 100+ subs celebration (an ask me anything video):

For 200 subs I’m doing a room tour. I already recorded the footage: I just have to edit it together.

Lastly, I had my first ever guest on the channel! My brother came through: he gifted me a surprise gift from Kickstarter. The Brawler 64 Gamepad aka a N64 controller with modern updates. We open it up, give first impression, and play it to get a feel for how it actually controls. I loved doing this collab. We got almost 500 views on this video, 23 likes, and a lot of comments so I’m happy to say the community loved it too.

Speaking of Collabs

I guested on Nintendo Domain Podcast again. This Nintendo podcast has such a great cast of guys. Conversations always feel relaxed and well balanced so if you’re a Nintendo fan definitely check this out.

This time around I talk about Kirby.

I also featured on We The Nerdy’s Gamer Cast for the first time.

Sean Capri, the host of this podcast, reached out to me to collab. That’s when I went through the archives of his show and I have to say: WOW. He has so much energy. He’s a quirky passionate person and his podcast is definitely a must listen. I was so inspired going through the archives and hearing him talk to other creatives. You can check out my guest feature here.

Lastly, I guested on The Bad Bit Show podcast

and talked about what it’s like being a woman trying to make it in the industry (among other things).

Website Updates

Logos

You may have already noticed but I completely updated this site thanks to some work from my friend Katherine and my Ally Almore. Katherine does 2D art for fun and Ally is a professional photographer in Chicago, IL.

Katherine designed some logos. Here is the one you can find on the website.

You can see those photos across my platforms online but here are a few you might’ve missed/that I may not have used yet. For more of Ally’s work you can check out her website.
