If you are in University - or have graduated from it - I'm sure you know about the necessity of submitting a Dissertation in your final year. At least, this applies to most courses. Well, mine seems to have spiralled out into epic proportions...
Broken Sword 5 is a Kickstarter-funded game, made by Revolution Software. The premise of the game begins when George and Nico indadvertedly become witnesses to a robbery and murder in an art gallery. The mystery behind the robbery itself is interesting enough, but the game really begins to fall flat when you discover that the 'epic story' which unfolds actually isn't that epic.
I've set up a contact network for those who'd potentially wish to contact me in future regarding employment or commissions, and for general friendships. This got me thinking, though, and I subsequently entered a conversation upon the topic: Is the amount someone is paid proportional to the amount of work that they do?
It was a triumph...
Well, nothing's been a triumph, besides the quotation of a particular famous song! :P
Anyway, I'll be looking at new job opportunities come September, or even earlier to avoid the crowds of new jobseekers.
Despite setbacks to posting on-schedule (is there even a schedule anymore? :P) I still post - eventually! It's more than I can say for some other bloggers...
Anyway, looking at some graphic design and various other freelancing jobs, it's interesting to see what's out there. There are some jobs where people are basically expected to work for pennies, such as one wherein a person was wanted to look at between 10-15 articles per day, and to rewrite these. Shady at best, but the pay of $2 per article made it a no-go.
In any case...
I'm rather bad at writing these blog posts on time now! So, to get everything up-to-date:

- 2014 looks to be decisive toward 2015
Lately in my spare time, I've taken to livestreaming. I livestream popular and lesser-known games, and kicked off with Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse on the hour of its release.
I don't do any commentary, but I talk in the chat.

I've been working at the local gaming shop for a while - it hosts a variety of events for a variety of games including Warhammer, Magic and Dungeons and Dragons as well as a variety of board games. If you've been...
Today's post will be a bit short compared to the last one as I don't have as much to write about besides the Game Day for Magic: The Gathering's Theros set which went excellently. But other than that, I need to think of more things...
For the last couple of months, I've been a bit starved for a topic to write about because I've been so busy with uni and my internship - but ironically, this in itself gave me a topic to start writing about on my blog! I just need the time to do it, but that's another story...
