Slay the Spire is pretty fun

Seems like Slay the Spire has taken over Hades in my lineup. I'm liking it, and each deck feels unique. I haven't unlocked the 4th one yet, so I don't know how that one plays, but the other 3 are interesting. I really want to continue Hades, though I probably will do that on my own time. I think I might do Honkai Impact 3rd weekly, though don't know how long each video will be. I think I'll play it by week.

So far so good in putting out a video a day. I think I will be able to finish February with this steady progress (not counting the Friday the 13th videos). 

I have also been playing some Project CARS 3 on my own after doing the initial video. It's alright, but like I mentioned in the video - it really shouldn't have been called Project CARS 3.

I still want to do short review videos like I did in the past again, but I'll have to go through my extensive library to see which ones I should do.

Recordings and stuff

 Surprisingly, it wasn't too bad recording while on the Blackwidow v3. It's not quiet by any means, but at least RTX voice does a good job of canceling that sound out. Sometimes there's some noise that passes it, but it's faint at best.

I've also started to play Slay the Spire... Wondered why I haven't played it until now. It seems pretty fun. Also seems similar to a recent demo I tried - Roguebook, made by the Faeria devs and also by Richard Garfield. I liked the demo, though I got my butt handed to me. Didn't know that it was (or seems like) inspired by Slay the Spire.

Also started Honkai Impact 3rd. I recorded some Genshin Impact stuff before, but didn't really continue on that. Honkai seems like I can do short stints, but can do longer ones if I wanted to, so it seems a little bit better.

Got a few games during the New Years event on Steam, so I may or may not get to play them soon, with my library size.

Keyboards and stuff

This week I upgraded my keyboard to the Razer Blackwidow V3! My first true mechanical keyboard. Thanks to youtube, I've been binging DIY mechanical keyboard videos and it seems like a pricey hobby, but I wanted to tip my toes in it. So I reserved a starter kit lol. Was looking around and found the GMMK Pro. No soldering, but at least I can use whatever switches and keycaps (to an extent). Also that makes me wonder if I should lube the switches... It technically is 'better' for the most part, but it is also very time consuming based on the videos I have seen.

Regardless, I plan on trying the Blackwidow in my recordings this coming weekend. Hopefully it won't be loud with RTX Voice.

 It has taken until now for me to notice the sync issues I had with my avatar when I first started to use it. I think it went on through my videos for a few weeks (at least up to Black Mesa part 6).. I think I noticed it and then tried to fix it afterwards, but I didn't realize how many was effected... I should have noticed it during editing, but when I played through parts, it seemed fine.

Ever since Black Mesa part 7 (around November 13, 2020), the issue has been fixed, but dang... what a rookie mistake. I have commented in all of the videos effects I believe.

February is here!

 Somehow, I was able to put out a let's play video everyday in January. Even for this week as well. Started some classic games, and even continued on a game that I haven't played in a long while. Maybe someday I'll continue Final Fantasy 9 lol. 

For the new people that haven't seen my older stuff, I have done some short-form reviews before, and I have been thinking of starting it back up again - one reason is that I would like to get through my Steam list, and find some hidden gems in there that I don't remember getting. I think it takes more time overall, compared to my normal let's plays, but since they are reviews, I feel like they would be more informative than just the experience.

Other than that, I hope to have time to stream more in this month. I have a few games that I want to do specifically for streaming, but I don't know if I will have enough time in one chunk to do so, but we will see!

Wish I had gotten on the stock train as well, but it is what it is. I would need to do more research on it and set limits and whatnot due to the hours that I am awake. Maybe I'll research something in the long term, rather than the ones currently in the news.
