Video Content Progress Report

It goes without saying that video is a wildly important part of any modern content mix and has been for years now. Will be the first to admit that I’ve been behind the curve in this regard. Though I’m a long ways away from my early days of recording my screen with a webcam, there’s still much work to be done in order to get my output to a place I’m happy with.

While we’re here, let’s list off what’s been done and what is still a work in progress.

Tips for Managing Meter in Dragon Ball FighterZ

When it comes to meter, Dragon Ball FighterZ doles it out at a very generous clip. After the first few seconds of the match, it’s pretty easy to go through an entire match while still having stocks to spare. However, I’ve run into no shortage of players that liberally burn their meter during the match, only to find themselves bankrupt when the match is in the balance.

Managing your resources is crucial to your success on the battlefield. Let’s talk about two of the most common wastes of meter that occur in a match and what can be done instead to ensure that you have meter when you need it most!

Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game is on Kickstarter

I love Street Fighter! I love board games! Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game is my dream come true!

Designed by YouTuber Angry Joe and published by Jasco Games, it features gorgeous miniatures, multiple stages, and 40-card decks for each character. I want to believe that this is everything I’ve been dreaming of, but there is still much for me to consider. As it usually goes with Kickstarter board games, particularly ones that feature miniatures, the entry price is steep, scaling exponentially higher if you want stretch goals and the expansion characters. On top of that, I want to read the manual and watch the how-to-play videos to see if this could meet my particular expectations.

If this interests you like it interests me, check out Street Fighter: The Miniatures Game on Kickstarter! You’ve got till May 5th, 2018 at 12:59 AM EDT to pledge, so get yours in there before it’s too late!

I won $7.01 in HQ Trivia. This is my story.

For the past few months, I have been an avid HQ-tie. Whether I’m playing with coworkers during the 3PM show or playing the 9PM show with my wife, I’m usually on my phone, answering these trivia questions until I inevitably get one wrong and am eliminated from the game. It seems like answering 12 multiple choice questions would be simple enough, but as my 100+ losses have proven, this is certainly not the case.

However, April 3, 2018 was not such a day. Somehow, some way, I ascended to the top of the mountain and won a game of HQ Trivia.

Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Caught Me By Surprise

When Microsoft announced the inclusion of backwards compatibility into the Xbox One, I shrugged. It seemed to me like a half-hearted retort to Sony rapidly outpacing them in market share, combined with a band-aid solution to Microsoft not having enough exclusive games to make the Xbox One a more appealing product. On top of that, I’m generally not one to spend much time retreading games I’ve previously played or missed at their peak.

Recently though, my Xbox One copy of Far Cry 5 came in the mail, and I fired up the console for the first time in a while. Sitting in my queue were downloads for some awesome Xbox 360 games from my past that I could play right now without having to buy a remaster. It was the first time I really put any thought into the feature and in retrospect, it’s kind of cool.

There are hundreds of games from the Xbox 360 and original Xbox library that you can play right now on your Xbox One. At some point, I do want to make content relating to this “secret” treasure trove of games hiding right under our noses. Stay tuned!
