Programming Notes

First off, I’d like to thank everyone for supporting this blog. I can be a bit OCD in everything that I do, be it composing a sentence multiple times so it reads well (this sentence included), constantly checking my blog stats (which I do dozens of times daily), or my overuse of parenthesis (hey!), every ounce of support is noticed and appreciated. I am grateful for those who have supported my dream as a writer over the years and have pushed me to stick with it. And I also am excited by new readers and fellow bloggers who take the time to listen to my nonsensical rants. I hope that this is the launching point of bigger things.

Mmm...Dew & Doritos

That being said, I’ve managed to (through some very sleep deprived nights) adhere to a schedule regarding posts. Wednesdays have typically been for editorial type opinions on whatever I see fit in the gaming industry and Fridays have been reserved for reviews. This schedule will continue going forward and I hope to expand to 3-4 posts a week, maybe more if I can self edit myself a bit better. Ideally, the schedule I see in my head is as follows.

  • Tuesdays – An alternating schedule of Top Ten Tuesdays and My Gaming Backlog
  • Wednesdays – Editorial day, in depth thoughts on a myriad of gaming centric topics
  • Fridays – Reviews or Vault Reviews

I have no idea what I'm doing

For the time being, until I get a better sleep schedule I will keep Thursdays and Mondays open. I will keep these days available to react to newsworthy stories in the gaming industry. Or to post pictures of cats. I’m not entirely sure yet.

Also, I will begin differentiating my reviews from here forward. I’ve managed to only review titles that have been released within the past year. Since I am independent, I play games and review them on my own time. Because of this, I try to make reviews as timely as possible (Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite), but this can’t always be. I have a plethora of titles that I want to give an honest review so here is where Vault Reviews come into play. For titles older than a year, I will designate as a Vault Review. These titles will still fall into the same criteria as if I were playing them fresh, but I will also point out how well they stand up to modern critique. I will also use similar criteria when reviewing HD remakes.

Vault Secure!

So again, thank you so much for your readership and support. I look forward to recording more of my gibberish on page.
