So I couldn’t leave it a whole year without making a post here. Surely something has ‘developed’ in the past near-year. Well yes… and also.. no. There have been a few projects which I have been a part of but mostly I’ve spent most of the year so far recovering from a leg surgery. It’s left me with time, but it’s been time that has needed to be set aside to rest and recuperate rather than to make any major progress with anything I’d consider a project.
There have been ideas, for sure. I have just added some of them to my IdeaLocker so that they are there for the future. I don’t know what this thing is in the future that is going to happen to give me the time needed to work on all these ideas, in fact I am fairly sure it will never (at this point) happen. But they are still ideas, and I can’t stop them coming.
WreckNET.co.uk was launched to a fairly stunning reaction of not a whole lot. Unfortunately I think we may have missed the boat when it comes to attracting the masses, as frankly we don’t seem that attracted ourselves at the moment. Perhaps that will change over time, who knows, but it sure is nice to have somewhere – a forum – to come together and post stuff to the internet. I did very little on the WreckNET project, most of the work being completed by my long-time collaborator, Chris Hack.
EchoREC.co.uk is my next (current) property to get up off the ground. I shut down StoneyGaming a good while ago now, and for a long time when playing games and capturing I wasn’t thinking about the endgame, the editing and releasing of videos. But these things change over time, and one day I suddenly got the urge to post some gaming related content. Rather than go back on myself I wanted to try something new. New name, new channel, new start. EchoREC is heavily inspired by ‘The Division’ – Evidence Correlation Holographic Overlay. For which I used a literal translation, Echo – Copy of. REC – Recording. Copy of Recording. – It makes sense to me and that’s all that matters in the long run.
The site will contain the SG 10 Year Archive. It’s a decent selection of videos and it would be a shame not to allow access to it after taking the time to create it. But EchoREC is about more than that. Yes, it will give me a platform to share with nobody, my latest gaming video creations. But it gives me the space without any pressure to write and post what I want to regarding games, without any association or expectation. I am excited to get it finished and online. [The site is online but not ready just yet, a few more tweaks and we’ll be live].
KiloTangoHotel.co.uk is currently getting a much needed overhaul. This is ongoing (although it has eaten up almost two days this week and I refuse to go on without having something visual to show for my progress). Its.. coming along with the help of some nicely made plugins. Hopefully this one won’t take too much longer to complete.
More in.. hopefully.. less than a year!
