A Sluggish September

Hello, everyone.

Activity here has been very stagnant and seemingly inconspicuous since almost three weeks ago. As a sophomore university student with a major in computer science, I have been focusing most on my studies. I have not started recording gameplay from and accompanying commentary for Sonic the Hedgheog 4, contrary to what I planned and explicitly announced. However, I am trying to complete the still-incomplete soundtrack playlists in the primary channel, that is, when I have the ideal and sufficient time to post. On a reasonably pessimistic note, if we do not have enough time to play through Sonic the Hedgehog 4 because the release of Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing Transformed is very close - that is, within a week or two until its release - then we will cut gameplay of Sonic the Hedgehog 4 for now in favor of Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing Transformed. I hope circumstances will ease sooner or later.

Also, I have launched a Facebook page, from which you can like and follow my latest activities, news, and updates, aside from this blog. You can access the page here.

Additionally, besides Facebook and this blog, you can follow me on Twitter here.

Until next time, have a nice day.

Updates: September 2012

Hello, everyone.

First of all, condolences and solemn remembrances to all of those innocently lost in the crises that shadowed September 11, 2001.

Now, for the first channel, following commentated gameplay from Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games and high-definition revisions of gameplay from Sonic Riders, before the release of Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing Transformed this November, I am planning to do commentated gameplay on Sonic the Hedgehog 4. I will not focus on the special stages. In the meantime, I will return posting soundtrack music at an almost regular interval of every three to five days, trying to complete the still-incomplete soundtrack playlists in the channel.

For the second channel, I will post all of Celldweller's "Soundtrack For The Voices In My Head, Vol. 02" and of course, other similar, relatively underground music.

That is all I have at the moment.
Otherwise, everything has been quite sluggish lately.

Until next time, sayonara.
