No vlog this time. It is dark in here.
MAGFest happened and I didn’t get stranded! YAY! It was fun as always, though I think I ended up spending a lot of it as down time than anything else. Overnight flights apparently wipe me out and bring back those off again on again cold symptoms I’ve been having since September. Not sick, just feeling like it.
Other than that, though, it was good! Shot a crossover that sounds like it’s almost done, as well as a commentary for a crossover from last year and spent the rest of the time mostly just hanging out with people and wandering around like I usually do at these things. Got some swag and managed to get home without incident. It was awesome, even if there are some people that I didn’t really hang out with as much as I would have liked or at all.
But with MAG over, it’s time to think about the new year. In basically February. Shut up, I know what I’m doing.
Videos! I’ll be doing them, but probably with a bit less frequency this year. As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m not spending as much money on comics, and the ones I am buying are long running series that don’t fit the Spoileriffic format that well, so I’m straight up running out of books to talk about. I’ll probably be doing more of the Shea vs Comics series, since that’s a lot more conversational and I can talk about things all over the place instead of just the plot.
The reason for the reduced frequency is the same reason as I stopped doing the Comic Minutes. I’m focusing on the writing a lot more. I’m planning on cutting back on the books I put out1 but I’m going to be working on a few other projects that are writing based as well.

So I might be working on building a game for the next couple years. pic.twitter.com/gJgc56w9DA

Yeah, I’m also starting work on a game. The game is not due to be released until late 2017 or so, if all goes well, but I’m going to be using some of the usual video production time on making it in my off hours. Two smaller versions of it will be released in the mean time2 but the full thing is going to take me a while. So I hope you guys don’t mind, but the videos are going to suffer.
The games also involve a damn lot of writing. These are seriously going to take me forever.
Lastly, I was planning to go to ConBravo! Was. I am going to have to put those plans on hold for a little while, though, because work threw me a bit of a curve ball. Apparently, we now have a cap on the number of weeks of vacation instead of earning an extra week for every year, so my original plans might have to change. Depending on what the new cap is, we will see what happens.
And that’s the new year. Wish me luck.
