I ordered a new pc off ebay to get around the issues I’ve been having with ram difficulties with some more recent games and decided if I’m going to upgrade I might as well do it completely and get a really reasonable rig for the best price I can find, well I did get a reasonable one but it didn’t come at the specifications it was listed as on ebay, moral of the story is that you should never buy off ebay as this and my last pc both had problems with not being as described… Well you can but expect things to not be as described and have to get around those issues, and my way around this was to pay an extra £50 to get the processor of the standard I expected and not a downgrade but still get a reasonable upgraded rig, which I will do another post on later.
I haven’t got as many updates and articles out as I would have liked, I had intended for this new pc to arrive and make life a lot easier with being able to do other things on the other rig while edited video’s render on this one and vice versa without having to worry about lack of memory issues preventing rendering and causing problems (as 4gb just isn’t enough these days) and it doesn’t help that my camcorder died and has been buggy since I managed to partially revive it (sounding like it’s going to explode with a high pitched whine growing in intensity by the second when you turn it on is not fun, and the troubles connecting it to the pc makes me avoid using it. I will post a review of the camcorder finally at some point too, show how that wasn’t as simple as record and upload as the stupid thing records in mono and very quiet so I need to use the samson microphone separately to record a stereo track and edit this onto the track and then process and render which creates additional problems and editing time.
Anyway with this update I hope to add more content soon, I have a number of reviews I’m working on which on the old pc are of a lower quality than I can provide on the new pc, as I could ideally use full graphical settings on the new system while recording without having input lag or other issues, and hopefully OBS will actually record at 60fps and not need processing as camtasia does reduce everything to 30fps only in output.
I have also been thinking about redesigning the site in some form as it is a little outdated, it has the word blurb I thought was clever when the site started out as simply written articles, and since expanding into video’s I feel maybe I should make things a little more colourful and include pictures of myself even though I don’t feel very photogenic at present and need to get back into shape. But I do feel maybe I should have better more obvious social links on the site and have a nicer looking banner that isn’t word spaghetti, as most people don’t get the joke just as they don’t seem to get the hand drawn logo, but it is good to see some bigger youtubers appreciate the anti troll terrible pun because you can’t please them anyway as pewdiepie has his hand drawn intro and ssohpkc has the hand drawn bioshock thumbnail, and the point is you can never please them anyway and even if you make it look reasonable they say it’s shit so why not make it as shit as you can!
In the meantime do feel free to subscribe to the various channels and social media links as all the youtubers say “it really helps” and shows what you like etc, and is simply the easiest way to know of new content, twitter will post new articles here, subscriptions will show individual video’s of the lets plays etc.
Thanks for your support and if there is something in particular you are looking for more of do let me know, or any particular games or content you’d like me to make I welcome suggestions, I do have some upcoming things I have put off as they need the new system including syndrome which has just been released and the embargo has now passed and I want to play on the better system, clustertruck without any input lag so I wont flop about like a fish, D4 as hopefully it’ll actually work on the new system even though it should on this one lol! Soul axiom as I really like wales interactive and I’ve been looking forward to getting on with that. Along with many more reviews and other indie games I’ve got in the line as well as finishing off the existing series’
Stay tuned very soon for some steam based board games which I have also got under review and are being uploaded very soon.
