Improving, Updating, Exploring
Broadcasting my gaming to the world is quickly become a personal mission for me. Since the holidays I have add two new games to my broadcast. Forza Horzion 2 and now The Crew. Both are excellent racing titles with a unique experience. Horizon is all about the perfect road trip while The Crew is all about self gratification and become number in America.
Starting to really enjoy Graphic Design
All this broadcasting, video creating and poster making really brings a joy to my heart. I use to think coding websites and programming functions was what I enjoyed most about computers but now with my degree leading me down the treacherous road of plugins and complex web designs, I gotta say it’s become more restricting in what I can actually do without banging my head into the computer.
But there is one aspect of web development that I have come to love and that is the graphic design part of it. Turning simple shapes into complex vinyl’s is what I often spend my time doing in Forza Horizon and is my drawing style when given pencil and paper. I also love manipulating images with Photoshop like the NFS Gathering Poster. It’s so much easier and there is much more freedom to create graphic than to code websites. I’m always looking of ways to improve my broadcast to improve my highlights. The PS4 allows it’s users to quickly record and save game footage as way as take screenshots which is how I got all of my gaming images for this blog yet now I have a surplus and I’m not sure what to do with all this material.
I have hours of chase highlights from my time in NFS Rivals. From Darksiders I have an artist expo of screenshot because the game has such amazing backdrops. The more I Broadcast the more highlights I want to create yet Twitch doesn’t have a proper video editor and while exporting to YouTube is great I now want to add that extra spice that only comes from editing a video on a desktop. I’m always trying to improve my recordings, to make things more exciting, more interesting, to gain more followers and views but really what I need now is feedback; honest constructive feedback that lightens me of the good as well as the bad.
February has been good so far I got a few ideas I wanna try before the month’s over with like a Top Five list of my greatest pursuits in NFS Rivals.
