Reminder that if you’re feeling bad about being unsuccessful or if anyone tries to make you feel bad about taking time to follow your true passion, Queen released Sheer Heart Attack in 1974, their first globally successful album, when Freddie Mercury was 28.

Blog list update

Figured I should do one of these to keep everyone up to date, as well as inform everyone of some shifting around I’ll be doing!

If you’re reading this, you’re either following Absolutely Pointless or actually looking at the blog (why), in which case things won’t really change from how they are right now, basically a personal blog where I spill my unfiltered thoughts out and hope I eventually end up weeding out the weak followers. I don’t know how there’s still 163 of you.

I’ll be adding a few more things here and probably completely redoing the theme to make it look more “personal” I guess, so look forward to that!

As for my other blogs, things are going to be moved around a bit!

I’m going to try to be a bit more active on Riet Plays Games, the homeblog for my gaming stream and YouTube channel, but no guarantees as I’m having some YouTube issues and I need to get that sorted out.

Pointless Games will be seeing a return as where I’ll be posting game development related things, such as progress on my current project in Unreal Engine 4, or my Kyle Katarn addon for Samsara, or any other dev-related things I work on that aren’t under NDA.

A new blog, Shitscribbles, will be a clean art blog, because a lot of people seem to like when artists post their art separately from their personal blogs, and I can see where some people would be turned off from my frank assholish attitude here on the personal blog. Absolutely Shameless will continue to act as a naughty older brother art blog.

Another new blog, Rietsupurae will be the gaming-oriented branch off of my personal blog, allowing me to get upset at video games and spam about E3 over there instead of here, and I’ll also try to put out some more coherent thoughts about games that I otherwise wouldn’t have put here at risk of filling this blog with long explanations on why your favorite games are shit.

All in all, I have too many blogs and too much time on my hands and I need to be stopped please send help

Also also I watched Starship Troopers today and every time Johnny Rico came on screen, spacemarinescum popped into my head and made me realize space marines are hot

You’re a bad influence, carol, but the best bad influence

Is it bad that I had a dream where I had a little bit of Steam cash and was deliberating what sale to spend my money on

I’m literally dreaming about having game money this is ridiculous

If someone ever asks you what Tumblr is, just show them this picture.

As this is post 1666, I figure it’s fitting to talk about the latest Doom news

From what I hear, the Quakecon footage was hype as fuck, showing gameplay more akin to Doom 2 than anything, which is amazing, they’re finally doing things right over at id. Go take a look at my pal Doomguy’s blog for better info, since he actually went to the showing and has a few posts about it.
