Well this was unexpected…
Last week, Tuesday July 23rd to be exact, marked the two year anniversary of Slick Gaming. It wasn’t unexpected in that I didn’t think I’d make it this far. It was unexpected because it approached so fast I didn’t even have time to react. The past few weeks have been busy for me, flying back and forth across the country, getting a new job, working on tons of reviews, and even taking a few work trips to and from San Francisco, so to say I had my blog anniversary on my mind was very far from accurate.
But that doesn’t mean this blog isn’t on my mind.
In fact, there are plenty of reasons why Slick Gaming now is so much better than it was one year ago! A big venture contained entirely in the past year of Slick Gaming is The Recurring Bosscast and my fellow gamers/blogger at Splitkick.com.
I have been co-hosting The Recurring Bosscast podcast with Mat and Jett for nearly one year now. I can’t even believe it’s been that long since we first started, and I cannot believe how much fun that show has been! Just talking about games, speculating about the future of the industry, reminiscing about our favorite systems, genres, and games has been fantastic. I’m looking forward to the next year of the Recurring Bosscast and am definitely grateful and humble to even be a part of such a wonderful team.
If I can give an excuse as to why Slick Gaming hasn’t been as crazy active as it has been in the past, it’d be because of my other gaming ventures. I put in a lot of work this past year into my two other blogs: Slick Anthology and A World of Games.
While Slick Anthology has gone on the back burner the past few months, A World of Games has been booming. A complete redesign of the Tumblr blog, dozens of updates and new content, and a decent reaction from the Tumblr crowd have been enough encouragement to keep me at maintaining the blog as frequently as possible. Thank you, Tumblr-ers, I appreciate the feedback and look forward to bringing more arcade action your way from across the world!
Looking toward the future I am still excited about Slick Gaming and what it holds. Believe it or not, I’ve recorded video footage for new content on the YouTube channel, including a brand new Game Hunter! Also in the works are new Free Plays, Modern Classics, and, if everything goes well, a brand new series of Let’s Plays with my girlfriend Laura!
You can also mark your calendars for a pair of new Worth Playing articles. I’ll give you fans a hint on what the next topic of games will be: Final Fight and Double Dragon are both on the list. And you can expect more reviews, previews, and Game Hunter Journals along the way. Like I said before, I’m super excited to see what 2013-2014 has in store for Slick Gaming and I sure hope you are too!
To all of my friends, to all of my readers, to anyone who has looked at my words, anyone that has ever seen my videos, looked at my pictures, read my comments, followed my blog, encouraged me and supported me, and to everyone that has helped make Slick Gaming possible for these past two years… Thank you.
Here’s to another year of Slick Gaming!
