Blade’s Edge Update – January and Plans For 2016

Hello everyone, and welcome to 2016! Much like last year, I’m pretty happy with how things are going… so I don’t plan to make any huge sweeping changes. I do have some minor improvements I’d like to work on, most notably to my stream, but for the moment I don’t foresee any major changes for the website. That being said, let’s talk about some of the minor plans I have long-term, as well as what you can expect for January, shall we?

Journey


As far as long-term plans go, I’m mostly planning on refining what I’m already doing. With work and some house stuff goin’ on, I don’t know that I’ll have time for any major revisions. Down the line I plan to make some minor improvements to my stream, such as getting a more refined bot so I don’t have to micromanage everything in that regard, but that’s probably going to be a few months. I’d also, eventually, like to try doing some video reviews for the top of my review posts. In pursuit of that, I’m planning to work on gathering my own footage a lot more often, for both anime and games. Hopefully this will lead to more relevant images overall, but shouldn’t be hugely noticeable. The one immediate change I plan to make is that my SRPG Sunday streams will be afternoon in stead of evening streams starting tomorrow. Expect me to start in the late morning and continue until around dinner time – except when Monday is a holiday that I don’t have to work.  I hope you’re all as excited for this year as I am!

Asterisk War

As far as January goes, I’ll be starting my final reviews from 2015 this coming week, with the start of the anime review blitz. I’ve got about 7 anime reviews coming from the fall season, starting with Asterisk War. Alongside that I’m also going to be reviewing Disgaea 5 and Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel once I’m finished them. Hopefully we’ll get all of that done this month, but that’s a lot of writing so I can’t promise! We’ll get as much as we can done, though, so you should expect at least one per week, hopefully 2.

As far as my streaming goes, this month is Legend of Heroes Month. I started, late last month, playing Trails of Cold Steel and I’ve been having a blast with it. Immediately following Cold Steel I’ll be continuing my playthrough of Trails in the Sky and then moving on to Trails Second Chapter. Of course, we’ll be continuing the weekly Gamer’s Night In and SRPG Sunday streams, but during the week it’ll be all Legend of Heroes, all the time! Also, I’ve decided that I’ll be allowing viewers to pick the games I play during bonus streams or between new games this year, so feel free to vote on this strawpoll if you’d like to help decide my downtime games. Last, but certainly not least, I’ll be doing my January Saturday Selubration on January 16th! We’ll be following this strawpoll to pick the games, so vote here as well and feel free to pop by to join me as we do our first Selubration of the new year!
