With Star Wars Month over, it’s time to look away from such for now. Or it would be, were it not for May the Fourth (otherwise known as Star Wars Day), and the content hitting Disney+ on that day. Yes, there’s an hour-long episode of The Bad Batch arriving to start the new series off, and I want to talk of it. But then… there’s something else…
It is in no way confirmed to be happening, but we only have to wait a few days to wait to see if the rumours are true. Star Wars Detours was a Robot Chicken-esque series being developed in 2012 that aimed to offer a very crass, comedic take on the universe beloved by many.
You can see, then, why Disney would not want it existing in the same space as the sequel trilogy. Well, that trilogy has been finished for more than a year, so you can see how such a thing is very possible to be happening. Whatever happens on Star Wars Day, I’ll have articles, which also includes talking of anything that might be released about a certain blocky adventure.
During Star Wars Month, there were a few reveals. One of which being the new Farming Simulator. It’s looking a big one with the number of improvements and features the announcement article is teasing, but the big one – previously only a mod – is seasons. Whether only altering how the world looks or having a larger purpose to exist, I’m looking forward to seeing how such works. In fact, I’m excited about it all, so prepare for that article.
So excited am I, I’ll be on Farming Simulator 19 quite a bit while live on Twitch. There’s two planned sessions, with every possibility for more. I’ve noticed that the previous streams have all fallen on a Thursday. So, that tradition is continuing. There’s every possibility that much like last month saw no Thursday streams, this month sees them full with farming instead. We will see.
I want to feature some more Forza Horizon while live, so that will be coming up at some point. As well as that, there will be some Miitopia. The demo is available, with the full game releasing at the end of this month, so I can play the start of it through the demo, then continue when the full game releases. Star Wars Day will see me on another Star Wars game, but I’m not revealing which.
During March, I streamed a full Pokémon Shield playthrough with something I called the Wool and Wings Run. With a team consisting of three Wooloo and three birds, I defeated the champion to take the title. But you might be thinking what rules exist for such a run. After all, I already said it was based on a previous run I’d done on Let’s Go, Eevee!, and there’s no Wooloo available in that game.
I’ll be giving the rundown on the rules I set myself for this style of a run, so that maybe you can give it a try for yourself. I don’t have a good name for such a run, though, so at present I just label it the alternate dual team run. That more than likely won’t be a name I’ll use in the article itself. If the part my sister’s waiting for arrives and I get my laptop back, I’ll see about editing the streams down into highlights for this month to tie in with the article.
It’s time for Star Wars Month once again, and this time I can add streaming to my list of what I’m doing for it. But what is Star Wars Month, and why did I start it? The first stream of the month will sort that out, with me looking at exactly that by going to my website and YouTube channel to share some of the things I’ve published on past Star Wars Months.
The big streaming event for the month will be Republic Commando, where I’ll be doing a full playthrough of it across the month. In fact, this Star Wars Month has a bit of a classic theme with the streams, as I’ll be playing the classic Battlefronts, along with a bit of multiplayer fun (against bots) on Jedi Academy. In anticipation of LEGO The Skywalker Saga, I’ll be playing a classic of TT’s first generation. No, not The Complete Saga. The later one of the first generation. The Clone Wars.
On Pokémon Day, I started a Wool and Wings run of Pokémon Shield over on Twitch, with that continuing on until completion throughout this month. The day before that was the Pokémon Presents, which ticked off news for one of my three cores during February. With March being the month where news of Sonic the Hedgehog usually happens, along with LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga being pencilled for a Spring release, I’m expecting news of those two this month.
As ever, the anniversary of the Switch this month brings with it my experiences of this fourth year. There’s been a lot that I’ve played within what some consider a dry year for the console, with almost double the games over previous years. Sure, Nintendo have been releasing less over the course of the last year, but things look to be picking up again – at least for next year.
Even after saying how 2020 was the best year for me with this label and wanting to grow it further, you’d be forgiven for thinking I’d lost interest. Oh, I’ve still been streaming, but no videos and hardly any articles. Well, that’s just how it’s been for the previous two months as well. I’ve been keeping myself inside as infection rates grow once again, and it hadn’t done me any good at all.
I’m getting back to my walks on my regular routes, so this month should see more of everything. More videos, more enthusiasm in streams, and more articles. One in particular has to do with Power Rangers, as I’ve just recently come across an article on The Hollywood Reporter that has unveiled a bit in regards to the future of the franchise. I’m going to look at the future of the franchise too, taking into account this latest bit of news.
A Happy New Year to all. The last year hasn’t been the best, with the negative seeping into every positive event owing to the major pandemic holding the world in its grip. The power it holds will hopefully be lessened, and we can finally feel free once again. It’s been tough for everyone to some extent. My motivation has been all over the place this year, as noted by delayed articles and the website as a whole still needing a few additions and fixes, but it’s still been a great success.
Last year saw a lot of success for the site, with me pushing more articles to it then any previous year – and considering the two largest events I regularly cover were unable to take place, that’s an achievement. I’m not sure I trust the analytics to give an accurate idea of how successful the split from Blogger has been, so this is the year where I will see such.
