I haven’t posted anything to this blog in a very, very long time so I don’t expect that anyone is still listening, but here goes anyway.
Not long after my last post about my activities in Eve I quit playing the game. I was a little burnt out and had things going on in RL that needed attention. I’ve never stopped gaming, I just stopped playing Eve. I’m not committed to coming back to Eve just yet but since they began the whole free to play alpha clone thing I have logged in and done some market stuff as well as starting a new character with the name I plan to try to establish in a larger gaming/online identity arena. I won’t be abandoning my Parisma character but she will not be the primary face I put on when I visit New Eden. If I return to Eve I will be known primarily as Nosepicka. Nosepicka was my goblin squig herder from Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning and I had a great time with him. I’m currently training all the skills for a combat/exploration pilot that the limited alpha clone level will allow. Once I’ve trained all of the relevant skills that the alpha level will allow I may buy a PLEX and do some more training and playing.
What I mean by establishing a new online persona is that I recently upgraded to a new gaming computer and I want to try my hand at Twitch streaming under the identity of Nosepicka42. I still need to buy a webcam and a new headset before I’m ready to stream but those will be coming very soon. I’ve largely been playing Rainbow 6 Siege lately and I plan to start my streaming with it. I don’t know if I’ll ever stream any Eve game play but it might happen, you never know. Therefore I’m going to turn this blog into a more general gaming/streaming blog. I don’t know how much time I’ll be able to devote to writing since I still have a full-time job and a family to take care of but the muse is upon me again and I feel the need to write down my feelings and activities.
I’ve been very interested lately in what’s going on over at Star Citizen. I’ve been doing some reading and even watched a very impressive video they posted showing a sample of their planet side bases and missions. I haven’t plopped down any money yet but I am seriously considering becoming a backer, which is what they call the people who have paid to get into the alpha, but I think I might in the very near future. If I do buy a game package so I can get into the alpha I want to record my experience and possibly make a series of YouTube videos chronicling my experience as a brand new supporter/player. I’m not holding on to any illusions that I can make anything out of streaming and making videos for YouTube but it will be fun to try.
If there is anyone still out there listening to this blog do wish me luck and who knows maybe I will come back to Eve.
