Hope you all had a great holiday. I am having a wonderful but busy time. With that, some news.
Good Bad Games!
A side project that I’ve been wanting to get out since forever will finally see the light of day and that is the launch of Good Bad Games. Essentially it is the same as Good Bad Flicks but I’m going to focus on (duh) games. Now don’t worry, Good Bad Flicks isn’t going anywhere, this is just to supplement the show. There will still be (roughly) 4 regular episodes of Good Bad Flicks a month plus (hopefully) at least 1 Good Bad Games a month. If for some reason I don’t have enough time for both I will ALWAYS default to getting the flicks out first. They are the core of what this whole site is about and I will never let them be neglected.
I have a few reasons for wanting to get gaming content out there. One, I wanted to try something different and two, because gaming content is huge right now. I think that there are a lot of people who would love my show but don’t venture outside the Lets Plays too much. I’m hoping this will reel them in and they will enjoy the gaming content enough to check out the movie stuff.
I’ve been a huge gamer pretty much my entire life and aside from films, they are my other passion. So, I wanted to do something for the underdogs of games in the way I am doing that for movies. I’ve finally got it down to where it is possible to do this and I feel it is finally time to give it the green light. Originally I was planning to have the first episode up for the end of 2013 but because Jack Frost 2 kinda screwed me, I’m putting episode 1 up this week and then next week will begin the all request stuff. (Howard the Duck, Phantasm, Gremlins 2, and They Live)
The show is going to be a sort of combination Lets Play/Recap/Trivia. It will probably be a work in progress for the first few while I iron out what works and what doesn’t.
This weekend will be the forgotten adventure game Manhunter New York. In the graphic above you can see many of the potential games I have lined up for future episodes. Aside from Manhunter, I currently have footage captured for Golden Axe Beast Rider, Dark Sector, Saw, Bionic Commando and the hilariously awful Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties. As you can see, I am ahead of the game. The tricky part and why this is a roughly once a month show is that while most movies are about 90 minutes to 2 hours, even a short game can be 8-10 hours. That is a lot of footage to go through, which makes writing and editing take way longer.
I’m hoping to transition between an older game and a newer game every time. With that, I’m looking to do Golden Axe Beast Rider for next month.
Ok, more news.
The Livestream was a success…although kind of short. I only went 1 movie and while I think it went over well I think I kind of overestimated myself. I thought I would have enough in me to keep going all night but doing live stuff solo is HARD! In the future, yes there will be more, I’m thinking I’ll just stick to 1 movie and then if I’m feeling up to it and the crowd wants me to keep going, I will. Not sure what the schedule will be on these but I’ll be sure to let you all know in advance. Oh and the archive of Santa Claus Conquers the Martians will be up sometime this week.
I’m doing another Live Nude Geeks on February 10th with The Cinema Snob so I’ll post some reminders when that get closer.
I have other cool stuff (crossovers and so on) in the coming months. 2014 is going to be the shows biggest year yet! Thanks to all of you who tune in every week. You are all awesome and I appreciate your continued support.
