The last Stray Sheep has been half a month ago already so I thought I’d post something in that section already. This time around, we’re talking about categories!
Currently, I’m doing mostly reviews (Indietail) since I originally wanted to do exactly that, review titles in my library and work through my backlog. The Gaming Journey also helps with that as I get to stream games and post about it (MHW, D2, etc.) that aren’t exactly “Indie” Games. So, overall, I really am enjoying that. And “everything else” is the Stray Sheep, I guess?
Well, I was planning for a while now to start up a category with informational pieces about upcoming games, new releases and promotions as well as new games that I’m excited about or that I’ve newly discovered or added into my pile of games to play. I really am looking forward to that as I’d also add the past interviews with Devs into that section and as I’d also talk about stuff like Witchmarsh, which I’ve been backing for a while now on Kickstarter!
Informational pieces would be mostly about “hype” or things that look interesting without the evaluation of potential repetitiveness or design flaws or whatever else I’d say about it. Of course, I may talk about those, too, but generally, I’d love to keep it less review-ish and actually only talk about why I personally am excited about those games and why it looks so interesting to me. I also could post my Revisited-series in there and move some of those posts to that category since they’d go hand-in-hand with the reviews, I guess?
Updates, press releases, new information, new discoveries, interviews – “On the Lookout” or “The Watch Tower” or whatever I can come up with will be the category for it! I personally am quite fond of “On the Lookout” but I’m a bit worried that it may be too obvious or too concrete in a way… it’s not like “Indietail”.
I even have a few games in mind to post about in that sense. I’m looking forward to it!
Before I set everything up, though, and before any of those drafts can be finished and posted, I’d have to come up with a fitting name for it and hence, I gotta find something that “sticks” or that is “easy to remember” or “fitting for my ‘brand'”. I personally am not really too coherent with it just yet, although I may redesign my blog soon…
Edit: The newly created category is called “The Lookout Post” with some puns and all of that in there…
I hope you enjoyed this quick little post on categories and upcoming WIPs!
