Shameless Self Promotion

This is the place where you can confab about all the other stuff besides videogames.

Nice work Suits. I can’t get enough of the NickProse (Ksub trademark). Your enthusiasm is palpable in your writing style. Is there a way of following the blog?

Any updates I’ll likely still post in here and update the blog later. It’s just a nice place to show people who aren’t on here.

Cheers for the kind words though man, it’s honestly very encouraging.

I hope no-one minds but I'll put the link to a little blog I've put together where I've been putting some of the bits I've written about games I've been playing or things I've been into.

The pieces on there are pieces I've posted on here, however some of you have mentioned that you've enjoyed them, so I thought I'd set up a little blog.

A little place to keep them for myself if you like.

I'm not particularly worried if no-one really reads it, profess to be any good at it or want to be famous, - I just enjoy going through the process of playing games, thinking about them, and occasionally putting some words down about them (If I think I have something I want to say about them), its fun.

Anyway, cheers.

Great stuff! I always know I’m in for a good time when I see you’ve made a new post in the retro thread, so nice to see you putting out this kind of stuff in one place.

Suits - just checked out the blog, it looks pretty darn cool. You've made me want to try out Wario Land II, which must be a good sign!

Here's my YouTube channel. I've got back in the swing of updating it after a long hiatus, and we're currently producing a series called Mystery Arcade ("we" being me and my brother).
Each episode we look at an arcade game, followed by two or three of its home conversions. My brother has never played many of these games before, so it's fascinating to see his take on it. Karate Champ is perhaps the most interesting reaction thus far...! We're going to continue in this style until we hit the year 1999 - after that, who knows?
The first few episodes have some serious audio issues, so be warned - I only had a knackered old unidirectional mic at the time, so I did the best I could with the limited resources available!

Anyway, here's the first video


And if you want to check out the rest of the series, head on over to Broken Circus on YouTube.

Hope you enjoy. Any feedback would be highly appreciated, too.

Hello! Long time no see!

Not really self promotion but this seemed like the most appropriate place to explain my absence - I'm now TrueGamingNetwork's Editor, meaning I'll be in charge of content strategy for both TrueAchievements and TrueTrophies (as well as TrueSteamAchievements, though that's a long way off in terms of growth). I'll be managing news, features, guides and walkthroughs across the whole network, which is terrifying.

I've spent most of the last year working really hard on growing TrueTrophies and we've had a lot of success. But I do miss kicking back and chatting about games so one of my aims for this year is to get back in touch with the lovely community here.

Anyway, just wanted to say hello again and explain my absence - it's nothing anyone said, promise! :)

My wife hosts a podcast called Nostalgia Me This and, because she loves me, she let me guest on an episode to talk about Jurassic Park!

I'm starting a new podcast called Three Nice Things, where we watch bad movies and then have to come up with three nice things to say about it!

We're recording our first episodes this weekend and want to know, can you come up with a legitimate nice thing to say about the Super Mario Bros. movie or the 2015 Fantastic Four movie?

We'll read them out on the podcast if you do.

I've given up my radio show in order to spend more time creating content for YouTube.

So far my videos have been based around comics, but I intend to be creating content about many different parts of pop culture going forward.

Please feel free to give my channel a look, and if you like what you see a subscription will be greatly appreciated ;)

A few months ago, I got inspired to take up creative writing again

Though I have a presence on FanFiction.net and Wattpad, I've found Archive Of Our Own and really like the interface.
Check out my works here;
https://archiveofourown.org/users/ReprobateGamer/works

Currently I'm in the middle of a series of short fiction based on the web series Critical Role; there is also a short based on Oxenfree and another on the idea of Earth being seen as a death world elsewhere in the galaxy.

Kudos is welcome there but comments more useful

Thanks for your time
