I realize how I have hurt you over the past month with the utter dearth of posts here on The 8-Bit Variety Show. School has ramped up for my last semester, and I have taken on a few extracirricular activities to strengthen up the ol' resume in anticipation of beginning a painful job search come graduation. As of this semester, I am the assistant editor of my university's entertainment magazine, I am doing an internship with the illustration department which is both game-related and OBJECTIVELY AWESOME (more on that later), and I'm balancing that with the other class responsibilities that I have (which include a law class, a lecture series, and a development for digital devices course).
Still, I come bearing good news! I BADLY want to be on here writing and enjoying your company; I have, in all honesty, missed it. Many of you have become my friends, and being the shameless attention-whore that I am, I like writing new things so people will look at me.
All those reasons considered, I have been trying to find a way to still take care of everything I need to (school, work, extracirriculars, that needy baby of mine), but make sure that there is new content here, at The 8-Bit Variety Show, and I think I found it.
One of my classes requires my producing a six-episode podcast , so I'm pleased to announce the birth of The 8BitV-Cast!, a podcast for the discriminating, genteel, mean-spirited gamers amongst us!
I have purchased a slightly expensive microphone in anticipation of the production, and it should arrive any day now. I will begin working on episodes within the week, and the first should be up quite soon.
I know that it's been a while since the last time we laughed together at either my expense, or the expense of others, but I would really appreciate your feedback about The 8BitV-Cast after the first show goes up.
JUST SO I AM TOTALLY CLEAR: I want to create something that I would actually want to listen to, and the best way to do that is to create something that you would actually enjoy listening to. In return for your feedback, I offer your reward in advance:
|This pant-crappingly terrifying picture of Kirby, if he were to |
eat No More Heroes protagonist, Travis Touchdown.
Help me 8BitVS friends and readers... You're my only hope!
Contritely, but sexily yours,
