Let's Try This Again

Posted by The-Great-One - October 11th, 2017


It's been a hell of time as of late. I've been away far too long. Some of you have noticed my steady return. Between now and my last news post I had been slowly working on buying myself a house. I am now a proud homeowner. I will have pictures at some point to show the entire house, or maybe a video if I can figure out how the video camera on my phone works.

I moved in back in June and have been living here since then. It's a nice place, although I have been experiencing troubles with the toilets clogging and overflowing and plunging them does little. Anybody know a fix for that right off the bat, it would be greatly appreciated (shit less is not a viable option).

So I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things and have been planning quite a bit of content. For one thing The Interviewer will be resuming, a new interview every Wednesday. Picking back up next week with an Interview with @Eggy. I'll also be posting stuff to my @Dohn page, so if you're not following that, then please do.

I wanted to ask a serious question to those who decided to follow me (why I dunno). I have thought about really outputting my writing more and I have thought about starting a Patreon. There are two things holding me back on this though. One is I don't know much about Patreon. I know it's open for creators, but is there a fee that you have to pay? Is there a cut Patreon gets? How would it work with my bank account overall? Those questions. Number Two is I don't want to come off as though I'm E-Begging. I'm not. If people enjoy my work, want to pay towards it, and hopefully I can use that money to expand. I have a job at a deli as a Manager. That position is what helped me get the house I'm currently living in, so I'm doing alright for myself financially, so I don't need a Patreon.

What are your thoughts?

Looking forward to that interview with that eggy guy

Yeah sorry about that. I need to push it back to next Wednesday. I got back logged a bit more. Figured out what was clogging the toilets at my house so real life stepped in.

Congrats on your new home!!!

is that somber pensive invite still valid?

Yes. Just been dealing with a lot. I have faster Internet now, so I'll be getting back into the swing of things.

you're an RE fan aren't you? This cheesy-ass promo tape just turned 20 the other day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxtcZp0zQl8

Crazy how little time is between the release of RE1 and RE2 when you think about it, considering RE1 took three years to develop and they also developed and then scrapped 1.5 between the two games without carrying any assets over.

Resident Evil is my favorite video game series. I am excited as hell for the RE2 remake.

I'm not sure what to think of the RE2 remake, probably won't have an opinion until it's sitting in front of me. What did you think of RE7?

Barely played it. Been busy with work, so haven't had much time to game. It is pretty much taking what P.T. did and making a full game.

I absolutely loved RE7, it's probably my GOTY. I went out and bought a PS4 Pro and a PSVR just for it. The VR implementation was actually pretty disappointing but the game itself is excellent. I played through it something like 7 times total getting all the trophies and got my speed run time under 2 hours.

It's not that much like PT though, it's visually similar at the start but they have almost nothing in common, you'll be disappointed if that's what you're expecting. RE1 (not remake) is my favourite and I loved how 7 brought it right back to the start and then hit so many tropes of the entire series as it went on. It really does feel like a bunch of RE fans making their ideal game, but trying to make it a whole fresh experience at the same time.
