NekoJonez’s May 2017 Update

SpartaSleepingHello there, it’s time for another update blog. The summer season is almost here and I think it’s time to tell you my schedule for the summer of 2017. Also, there are a few things I want to update you guys and girls about what’s going on behind the scenes in my life and my blog. While I’m introducing this update blog, you can enjoy a picture of my lovely cat Sparta napping. She turned 9 years old last month, so yeah. In any case, it’s time to get the updates rolling! 

My favorite gaming music #20 article progress

At the moment of writing this update article, I have to still write 20% of the article. After that, I’ll have to proofread the article, finish the layout and then put in all the tags and then do the final touches before I can publish it.

But, I can’t publish the article right away. I’ll tell you guys this, I first want to talk about a few games before I can publish the article. So, in the upcoming weeks, I’ll talk about those games. That’s all I’m going to spoil about that.

Writing this article is one of the biggest writing projects I have ever done for this blog. I can’t wait until it’s finished to show it to you. It’s going to be a very long article so, be prepared when you are going to read it.

If everything goes according to plan, I think I’ll be able to publish the article in either July or August. Remember, if you followed me on Twitter, you might have already known this.

Future content during the summer

While I try to plan everything out, sometimes I get a mail about an interesting game and I reschedule everything. But, I do have to say that I have the next 10 articles planned.

At this moment in time, my schedule has cleared up quite a bit. I finished my evening classes for this school year and the play ended last month. So, that means I have a bit more time for my personal life and this blog.

When I have the time, I might publish more than one post a week in this summer. But, because it’s summer time, I’m planning a few trips to meet up with friends and family so, it’s possible that I won’t publish articles in the weekend but during the workweek.  Pay attention, this will only be during the summer period. Because in September, my evening classes resume and not much later I’ll start to be in the rehearsals for the play in 2018.

I think it’s a great idea to follow me on Twitter since it’s so easy to publish quick updates. Also, feel afraid to tweet at me. I only bite in my food, so it’s all good.

Guest articles

Behind the scenes, I’m working with a few bloggers on a big project. I’m actually thinking about doing some collaborations with other bloggers. I won’t announce them in this article since they are still in the planning phases.

Speaking about guest articles, did you know I was a part of the Question of the Month articles in April and May? If you are interested in me answering the question of the month over at LaterLevels, well give it a look. I won’t spoil the question for June, but I have already submitted my reply for that!

Oh, if you are a blogger yourself and you want to do a collab with me, just send me a mail, tweet me or use my contact page. I’m open to collabs! I find them so much fun to do!

Misc updates

Here are some quick and smaller updates that I wanted to share.

Garage sale season is restarting. I can’t wait to go out on the hunt in the near future. I have a few ones already planned. Loot pictures will be on my Twitter when I find new games.

I have bought a 2nd 32GB SD card for my 3DS. Yeah, I was able to get a 32GB SD card full with games on my 3DS, I have since the 3DS released.

I was able to fix my gaming desktop finally. About time! It has been running excellent since Easter without any hiccups. So, the issue was that my 450W power brick was unable to get enough power to my hardware when it was under high load. I replaced the power brick with a 550W one, and it runs all the games I had problems with without any issue. I’m so glad I have my desktop back.

Also, if you follow me on Twitter, you might know that I tried to fix a computer I got from my grandfather in late April. It was a Packard Bell that I was unable to find drivers for anywhere on the internet. So, after replacing a faulty RAM stick and a new hard drive, I got the machine up and running again.

So, now I have two retro game PCs and a gaming desktop. My first retro PC is a Windows 98 SE machine with 512MB of RAM, 900MHz CPU, and 120GB HDD. The graphics are integrated on the motherboard. The new retro game PC is a Pentium 4 2,7 GHz CPU, 1GB RAM, 180 GB hard disk and the graphics are also integrated.

If you are wondering, my main gaming desktop is one that my uncle and I put together. It has a 3,7 GHz CPU, GeForce GTX 660, 120GB SSD, 2TB HDD and 16GB of RAM. It’s a powerful machine. While it doesn’t have the best graphics card on the market, I mainly use this computer for my evening classes. And in my evening classes, I have to use a lot of virtual machines and this computer is very good for that.

In any case, that’s everything I wanted to talk about in this update. Thank you for reading this article and I hope you enjoyed reading this article as much as I enjoyed writing it. I hope to be able to welcome you in another blog but until then, take care and have a great rest of your day!

NekoJonez Update Blog: May 2014

ImageIt’s time again for an article about my life! So, I promised to write an article like this each month. While a lot of this will be things that I mentioned on my Tumblr but hey, a reminder is nice once in a while. Besides, I consider things to be official when they are on my blog. Before I start, I have a few games that I picked up over the course of this month. Today I picked up 4 new PS2 games. I’m working on a list of my gaming collection. That might soon be published. Anyways, instead of heaving a long introduction, let’s get to the updates. 

Life stuff

I’m sorry to inform you guys that I’m going through a struggle right now. I’m caught between a rock and a hard place. I said on my Twitter and Tumblr that I’ll be fine. June will be a month that will decide everything for the rest of my life! Yes, it’s finals time. But there is more to it then that.

Since it’s dangerous to post real life stuff online, I won’t talk in depth about it. For that, there is family and friends.

But I’m extremely busy. This brings a lot of stress and that means I don’t feel as motivated to write as I usually do. So, please keep that in mind.

HappyLatte

Soon, I’ll publish a new exclusive press release on my blog from the guys of HappyLatte. The press release will be posted  between the 19th – 25th. The usual article could be delayed. Depends on how the last week of May is going to look.

I need to do a small bit of work on it. Like adding my own personal thoughts on it. So, that’s way I can’t say a final date. But the good news is that each download that you guys make from my blog, you support me too. 🙂 That’s neat.

Read this article as well.

Since it would be silly to write about the same updates again on my blog.

Blog updates

First of all, as you guys can read… I think I inspired Q to a new series. From Manga to Video game. To be a bit of a “jerk”, I actually gave him that idea. But hey, he is getting really good at it. Since somebody wanted to really make the game he talked about in the article he published on my own blog.

I still need to add that article to the page for ButtonSmashers. I’ll do that soon.

On Tumblr, I kept you guys up-to-date with my life. I had a lot of work with the internships and now the finals are coming. And here is the sad part, I have an overload of ideas for my blog.

A new gaming nostalgia article is written and is ready to go. It will be published in May.

I’m also talking to my friends over at the ButtonSmashers Blog to review something else then a game. Oh yes, a special co-op review of something else.

Also, I’m planning a new game diary and a new Android games article. And a ton of first impressions. Maybe the ones I mentioned on my Tumblr and possibly others.

I’m also planning to revamp my pages. With more pictures and way more handy navigation. But that will be a project I will work on this summer. But suggestions, drop them in the comments.

Closing words

Wow, writing life updates on Tumblr makes my updates shorter and more to the point :). Sweet! Now, I have forgotten one thing and that is that I did a new update to my forum. Go take a look!

Anyways, if you want to keep more up-to-date with me and my current plans, I suggest that you follow me on Twitter. When I post something on Tumblr… it will show up there too. And on Tumblr I say my plans and ideas for my blog. But be warned, I’m sometimes somebody who quickly changes his mind.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed. I’ll see you guys on another post! Cheers!
