A lot of anticipation around here right now. First of all, I'm waiting for the mock-ups for my new book cover, and it's driving me bonkers. I'm hoping for them before my birthday on Saturday, as that would be a great present. I can't fucking wait to see them. In other news, I also know a lot of us are anticipating the release of the Switch. I know some of you are lukewarm on it, but despite some of Nintendo's weirdness, Im pretty hyped for it. I did not preorder it, and I do not know if I'm going to buy it at launch. But I am superhyped for Super Mario Odyssey, as I've been waiting for another Mario exploration game for at least a decade since MArio 64, my favorite mario game.
...and hopefully leave a review on Amazon once it comes out this winter??? I'm trying to hit the ground running this time, and I have been sending out digital advanced copies of the novel in an attempt to get as many readers and reviewers ready for when the book comes out. I'm asking everybody!!! Here is the blurb for the book:
I forgot to tell you guys the funniest part about the Snee family's VR adventures - my dad tried it out before I did. Not PSVR, but Oculus. When he and my mom went to the airport to pick up my brother there was some sort of Facebook/Oculus test demonstration and my dad got in line and tried it. He was pretty impressed, actually! So my dad did VR before I did! Insane.
Let the truth be known! My family got me a PSVR rig for Xmas. I haven't blogged about it yet as I've been exhausted by the holidays, but also been digesting the new experience of VR. I have to say this: while deeply flawed, the PSVR rig is STILL amazing, and I am giddy with the prospects of VR in general now, more so than I was before I used a rig. I know the VIVE and Oculus are better, and even though wearing the PSVR is like having a pickup truck on your head, I am still SO impressed with it, and the possibilities.
Well, Telltale Games' Walking Dead Season 3 came out (Called "A New Frontier"), and I just downloaded it. HOWEVER, you can import the saves for Season 1 and 2 into it, but the problem is getting them off the PS3 or what have u, since Season 3 is only on PS4 and Xbox One, etc. Basically, you have to patch the original games so you can upload your saves (by signing into Telltale Games' servers, which u have to set an account), and then on PS4 you sign in and download the saves and "Continue Game". THe problem though is my PS3 has like no hard drive, so I deleted the first 2 seasons to make space for other games, and now I have to download at slow ass PS3 speeds, JUST so I can take 30 seconds to upload the save files. GRRR. Oh well, I'm not sure how else it would work.
