Sonic Month

so a few days ago now I went back to one of the streamers I followed to watch him play. I played with him on Stream and it was fun. I asked if I can join in the call next time and he said yes. I was so fun that he and his friends added me to their group of friends. now I’m apart of something great and fun

for the whole of Aug, myself and three others are playing nothing but Sonic games for Charity. well, four Charities. Mental Health Foundation UK, Child’s Play, St. Judes Children’s Hospital and Scottish Autism (not really a Charity but I want to give back to them as they helped my family) we also have bonus games when we hit goals. so far, we have £35 and that means we have a lot of games to play. I’ve been co-hosting with Nick (one of the players) and I don’t start Streaming until the 6th with Sonic Heroes.

also, on the 15th Sonic Mania is out and we’re all playing the game at the same time. Josh is playing the game on the channel (another player and the boss) and me, Nick and hopefully Grunt will be playing on our own channels. Josh doesn’t know this but I’m going to make a poll on who will finish the game first. (i can tell you it won’t be me)

my games are Heroes, 06, Black Knight, Secret Rings, Sonic 4 EP2 with Nick and Lost world. I also have some bonus games being Sonic Riders, Riders: Zero gravity, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed with Josh and the Olympics Games. I hope I do well with all the games I’m doing.

this is the link to the channel, even if you can’t give money, sharing the Stream and just watching would mean the world to us. Sonic month

and this is the plan for all the games

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥

my Nintendo Switch

so today my Nintendo Switch showed up. yes, I got my hands on one. I only have one game for it being Splatoon 2 a game I use to play on my Wii U. setting up the switch wasn’t as hard or a pain as I thought it was going to be. downloading the game only took about 30 mins to do and I was playing a game I almost forgot have much fun it was.

there’s just one thing wrong with it… the controller. the Joy cons are more like pain cons. my hands hurt so much playing only 15 mins of the game. so I have ordered a pro-controller to hopefully have a more painless time with the game. there are games I want I just have to wait. games like Mario and Rabbits kingdom battle that looks fun. fire emblem warriors as I loved Hyrule Warriors and I do like fire emblem. I would only get Mario Kart 8 if I find it on sale. super Mario Odyssey as I normally get the 3D Mario games.

it’ll get a Lego game not sure what one as all my consoles (apart from PS1 and GameCube) have Lego games. I know it’s going to be hard to get Switch games as they are like sometimes more than a PS4 copy. and as most people keep asking me, NO none of the Sonic games, Mania and Forces are NOT going on the Switch. my PS4 called them first.

so far I like it but I only have one game and I need to see what the pro-controller is like and hopefully, my hands won’t hurt as much as they still do right now.

that’s all for now, see you later ♥

I may take a year off

well, I’ve been stressed as hell for the past 2 weeks. something happened in my family that I can’t say online, just know that it was scary and it’s getting fixed. it’s also near the end of my college year and the stress of family and college has gotten to me. I’ve been unable to sleep well and I spent most of my time on Overwatch trying to feel better. I’ve never been able to deal with stress and one time it got too much…. I started to hurt myself. don’t worry, I haven’t done that for 3 or 4 years now. I’m just glad I have friends and family who care and have been helping in their own way to make me feel better.

so to help with the stress I may get a year off of College to calm my mind before going for my HND. the summer is coming and I’ll be meeting two of my friends I made over overwatch in 2 weeks. I can’t wait to meet them and give them a real hug.

E3 is also coming up and I’ll be watching as much of the live streams as I can. I’m hoping for news on the new Sonic games, the new Pokemon games on 3DS, new PS4 games I may get and any games for the switch that may make me buy one.

more Streams in the summer and hopefully make more posts here as I do like my blog and you never know, maybe someone big may find me XD.

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥

Is Dungeons and Dragons the next level in Geek?

so I have never played dungeons and dragons before and for the longest time, I didn’t want to play it. someone from my college class plays it and is mad about it (like me with Video games) I world sometimes see him working on DandD maps and talking to other players on discord. he had tried to get me to play but I said no. my only fear with the game is it looks so confusing and he kept saying I’d be fine if it isn’t in the most simple way I won’t get it most of the time.

so on Wed my cousin texted me and asked if I knew what DandD is. I said yes and that my classmate plays it. he then asked if I wanted to play with him and some of his friends. keep in mind he is 17 and his friends are around his age and I’m 22. I wasn’t sure about it but I ended up saying yes.

so today he came over and we worked on my character for the game. a good thing that’s going to come out of this is I will have another character for my portfolio of Characters that I have made. one of my cousin’s friends is going to pay someone to draw our characters in a professional way. I have a drawing already of her and I like how she’s turning out for someone made within 3 to 4 hours. they didn’t want the little things like age, birthday etc. but for me, there are key parts of a character (birthday most of the time isn’t needed).

maybe in the next post I may share her with you guys and maybe add a part on this blog for my characters, if I want my characters to be seen I have to show them. so my twins will be seen with their new looks and their friends and hopefully, this will help them getting seen by someone like SEGA, Sony or Nintendo, you never know.

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥

what I think of Sonic Forces so far

so I’ve been a Sonic fan for about 16 years and I have loved all the 3D games, Yes even 06. so the two new games are coming out this year, mania and Forces. I have preordered Mania and just waiting for the preorders for Forces to show up so I can get a copy. I really can’t talk about Mania as I never grew up with the old 2D games and really can’t play them so I will be talking about the game I want the most, Forces.

so, let’s go back to last year in July at San Diego comic con where SEGA held a birthday party for Sonic. there, they announced two games. one game for the older Sonic fans that will be a blast from the past in Sonic Mania, the other a darker game with two Sonics in Project Sonic 2017 now known as Sonic Forces. I stayed up super late to watch the party and I cried when I saw forces. I couldn’t be happier as people were saying SEGA left the Sonic I loved for Boom Sonic and Classic but they didn’t and I felt so happy. in August the last Summer of Sonic was held in London and I went and got to play Green Hill Zone of Sonic Mania and it was good and I would get it. nothing on Sonic Forces until two months ago when we got the name and the first gameplay for Modern Sonic. 3 weeks ago we get Classic’s gameplay and just yesterday they dropped the mic. (five points if you got that XD) you can make your own Character to help both Sonic’s in stopping Eggman.

now, as a character designer in training, this is the best thing ever! this is why I loved Skylanders Imaginators, being able to make a character of your own and see them in the game, fighting, helping and moving is just the game. I have seen people saying things like “DeviantART is going to have a field day with this”, yes, but their thinking about the poorly done characters that are recolours. there don’t talk about some of the most well-made fan characters ever. they keep thinking the poorly made ones and not the well-made ones. most of my characters came from being Sonic fan characters and as much as I would love to see them with my hero, I won’t be adding them to the game.

here is why. let’s use Samlee for this. she was a recolour of Sonic himself. I was 12, saw other people doing it so I thought it was okay and it clearly isn’t. she has had something from Sonic in all her looks until her newest design which is a calico cat with pale green eyes like a peridot. I am trying to keep her, her sister and her world away from Sonic and with this new game, i’m going to find it a bit harder. making a Sonic fan character only won’t be hard, they won’t have any ties to Sonic or his friends as most fan characters do. I will keep you up to date with this one as unlike Samlee, this one will be posted online.

if you have any thoughts on this, do you think SEGA did the right move with this if you’re getting the game what kind of character will you make? let me know, I would love to hear about it.

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥

A New Idea

my mind like to wonder. it comes up with these stories to help me sleep and keeps me entertained when I’m in a car or bus, with help from Music. an idea can come out of the blue and it did when I was having a shower. two things that I’m into apart from Video games are Gems and Stars. I use to go star gazing with my dad on winter nights and I have some real gemstones like Rose quartz and lapis lazuli. my twins, Samlee and Danny are from Gemtara a kingdom known for their Gems and their towns named after them. I never thought about Stars until I saw some in the shower… (the water was too hot, my bad) as soon as I was done and dry I grabbed my thinking book and started writing down what my mind was already telling me. I did a map of a star island, a shield like design and the name, Polaris. Polaris is the star at the end of the tail of the little dipper. I’m still working on other key parts. like the characters, the story, the island’s past, do they believe in any gods like Gemtara has demigods etc.

I haven’t done this since I made my Characters and Crystal Valley back in 2007, almost 10 years. like what I’m doing with Gemtara, I can’t share too much info as I haven’t gotten my ideas over the copyright law to keep them safe from people who could take them from me. it’s a pain as I want to share my ideas so people can see and maybe enjoy them. maybe down the line of my college years they may help with showing my art safely online. if I ever want to see my worlds come to live i have to show what I have.

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥

A Week To Get Ready

so I sent an application for my HND course for another college. I sent it this morning and I got a reply saying I have an interview next Monday on the 15th. my Mum went to this college so she’s going to get me to it for my interview. so that means I have a lot of work to do to get in. as I want to be a character designer I have to show them my characters as I said I was working on some in my personal statement.

most of my ideas haven’t been put down on paper (or PC) and I have the designs for my characters and haven’t been drawing them down. that’s the hard part for me, putting everything down. I know what happens, key points in the story, the characters, their past, the world etc… so, I’m right now working on Samlee on Photoshop the now and once she’s done I’ll put her in a word document with all her info that I can remember and what I have already have done from college. after Samlee, Danny would be next and then Emma and so on until Monday. I’ll mainly work on the twins, Samlee and Danny, as they are the main characters and they are the ones I want to see come to life.

I have no idea if I can get my college work done and get ready for this interview. I may have to give up my games to get all this done. no more Overwatch, Animal Crossing, Heroes of the storm etc until I’m done. YouTube will have to fill my Gaming needs with videos as I work.

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥

Starting again

so last night I did a Stream.  it was only on for about an hour and 20 mins but it was… good. I played overwatch, did a bit of training and some rank and it went well. views went up to 3 at the most but I didn’t care. I’ll be streaming Sonic today once my throat feels better. it’ll only be on for an hour, doing short streams until the summer. I still have college to worry about.

that’s all for now, see you later! ♥

been sick

so I haven’t been up to much as I’ve been sick for a week now. suck in bed sleeping until 3 in the afternoon and suck on my sofa watching youtube and movies on my PS4. I have only managed to do some college work in the form of my drawing. I had to do three still life drawings and I hate doing still life as it never looks like it’s meant to be. I also had a look at my report on graphics technology. I’ll be doing it on 4K TV. now to me, Graphics don’t make a good or bad game, it just makes it look nice and most people will love or hate the game just from the graphics. anyway, I also have to do the same report but on sound so this one will be a bit harder.

I will post my still life here and put them in my profile.

that’s all for now, see you next time! ♥

Up coming Comic Con

so this weekend I have a comic con and this time I’m going as my favourite Mad girl, Harley Quinn from the suicidé squad movie. I have the top, the jacket and the wig but I will be wearing black Jeans and black and white basketball shoes. I’m not a fan of her shorts and I can’t walk in high heels. there is one thing I not happy about and that’s the makeup. I never wear makeup daily unlike most girls I know. I hate how it feels on my skin and I feel like I’m not me when I have it on, like a mask.

my skin is going to hate me for this but, I have to make an ‘effort’

that’s all for now, see ya later ♥
