Update and Current Vid List [19th April 2014]

Hello There Internet,

I feel like there should be an update on my goings on as of today.

In recent news, the Editing PC has now been fixed and videos should start going up on YouTube fairly soon depending on how quickly they get made. This week is a fairly busy week. It is Easter after all but that’s only tomorrow.  On Friday I will be attending the “UK Blog Awards” as part of the “Torch Entertainment Guide“‘s contingent (with co-creators/owners Kennie and Chris) which as been shortlisted for the ‘PR, Marketing, Media & Communication‘ award as an organization. Might lead to a win and more work. Here’s hoping for both.

Anyway, on the video front there is some movement as I can now record and edit footage. As set series go here is what is going so far.

For the “Wil of the Torch” YouTube channel:

  • Week in Gaming News” makes a return. I want to improve the visuals but that can take time so not setting anything as yet.
  • Other stuff is planned, like group lets plays and MMO stuff but that’s in the air at the moment so going to see how that turns out first before setting anything.

For my personal “Guy off the Internet” channel:

  • Web Game Review” will make a daily, 7 day week return. I’m making better graphics for this too but (again) may take time so no date setting. I decided to keep in on my channel rather than move give it to the Torch. Not keeping all my journalistic eggs in one basket.
  • Building Nerdfighteria” will be a new series replacing “Nerdcrafteria Builds” and the other Nerdfighteria stuff. It will be a weekly (maybe more) Minecraft series building a Minecraft representation Nerdfighteria. Talking about general going’s on. May lean towards the topics of the “Vlogbrothers” talk about, more so I can rant or give my opinion on stuff.
  • Open Letter” will be something different. It’s not gameplay. It’s in lieu of The Brother’s Green “Crash Course” (Part of the Nerdfighteria community) ‘Open Letter’ segment and this from the TV series “Black Books”; There is hope that I will be funny but things like that a relative so it’s a try and see what happens sort of thing. Should be one a week but it may be longer depending how quickly I can make them. One a week at most, one a month at least.
  • I might do “Let’s Plays” and restart the “Pixelmon” Minecraft series but I’m not set on the ideas as yet so maybe.

I am also geared up for streaming. Not set on the idea yet but maybe. I might do a few test runs and see how it goes.

That’s really it for now. As I said I am planing more but it’s early days so getting back into the swing of things before going head on. As livelihoods go its pretty sketchy but here’s hopping that I can make a name of myself and get more work with other ‘Tubers, MCN’s, and stuff.

Oh yeah, writing is still slow. Defiantly no books till next year and that’s being optimistic. Depending how stuff goes they may end up on the back-burner. Still like the idea of me as a writer. Just not a a sole one.

Talk Later!

Wil.

2014 New Year Update!

Hello There Internet,

Things are shifting around now. I’m not getting rid of anything before you ask. This isn’t a sad message. It’s new year. Why should it be?

Anyway, stuff here on my blog and stuff on the Torch Guide aren’t going anywhere or changing. (They’re contract locked.)

But over on YouTube things are shifting. Some of you my know that I got another channel called ‘WiloftheTorch‘. This is for journalistic type videos. That means that the ‘Web Game Reviews‘ are moving to that channel. But with that, there may be more content. For example, I have finally nailed down the format for ‘Week In Gaming News‘ and that should be going up on the Torch channel.

But with stuff shifting on the third leg off the Torch there will be lost of free space on my channel. I got a Hauppauge PVR Recorder at Christmas so that means console videos. Once I can connect it to my TV… Look, my TV is a decade old, maybe more, and it can’t connect. I have also been expressly forbidden from usurping the downstairs, bigger, year old TV for my videos. And because it means I have to ‘borrow’ my Dad’s laptop because the PC is nowhere near the TV. (Both at ether end of the room.)

While I scourer the internet for adapters, you my wonder why there haven’t been any videos in a while. 1.) It was Christmas/New Year. A long period of filled with birthdays so I took take 2 weeks off because of house jumping. No time to record anything. Also 2.) I want to make it look nicer. You may notice that the ‘WOTT‘ channel has backgrounds, thumbnails and no videos while mine has videos and nothing else. I want to change that. Also, the starting and ending graphic are a bit prolonged and crap so want to change that too. Hopefully, all that should be done soon. I’m making it and I have no graphic programs but I have and editing program I barely know how to use and had classes on film-making so that compensates. Sort of…

Anyway, I’m back on the Torch on Monday with ‘Retro Monday’ and I am also writing reviews for GTA V, Assassin’s Creed IV and Last Of Us as new games so that’s something.

Wil.
