Hello, ladies and gentlemen, it is I, SharkyHat.
I want to start by saying ‘Crash Bandicoot’ will be returning Monday. Sorry for the lack of videos past Tuesday, too. I’ve been busying playing ‘Fortnite’ – which is GREAT – and generally spending time relaxing.
Given how little time I have during the day after my work schedule, I have found myself generally happier with sitting back and just playing a game for myself for a change. It’s been refreshing to not worry about mic checks, recording setup, frame rate, editing, uploading – all that.
Don’t worry though, the creations aren’t ending! After we finish ‘Crash Bandicoot’, BroOp Gameplay will be doing something a little… different. We’re being doing an A-to-Z series for the SNES! Each episode will be four or five games, single session highlights, with a rotating cast of the BroOp Gameplay crew. We hope you all enjoy it! It may be an every-other-day thing or just a Friday thing – depends on how much we accomplish during the week.
Just wanted to catch up and not disappear again. Catch you all Monday!
Well, haven’t had new videos for the last week-and-a-half and it’s been a mixture of illness (sore throat and coughing which makes for a terrible quality of video), lack of interest in Yooka-Laylee, and general lack of focus in general right now. We will be getting back to BroOp Gameplay with either Yooka-Laylee or something else – entirely sure yet – in the coming days.
The Sharky Plays stuff will continue at some point as well with either Outlast 2 like I want to do or Wolfenstein or something else if anything crosses my mind. That had just been because of a lack of free-time outside of other free-time activities. I play D&D a few days a week. Any time we have available to record goes to BroOp Gameplay, so unless I’m pulling double-duty on certain days I won’t be getting much done of solo stuff.
Sorry for the lack of content, ladies and gents.
So, following Resident Evil 7, I think the channel is going to undergo a major shift in how things are presented. This episode-by-episode system? It sucks. Do I have time for heavily edited videos? Fuck no. So what do we do? I don’t fucking know.
Look, I’m not going to sugar-coat this: maintaining the channel as it is is bullshit. It’s a sinking ship in my eyes. It’s an outdated style of presentation in a sea of copycats and clones and there is nothing defining it further than my deadpan personality and the occasional humor that comes from BroOp Gameplay episodes.
Long story short: We’re going nowhere. I understand that some people love our show… but that can only get us so far, you know? We have 450+ subscribers and average 15-20 views at the most on videos… Most of them are from me while I add the cards. That’s a shitty feeling when people who see you post stuff each day don’t even bother watching.
I know this can be considered whining or complaining, but when it’s time to realize that the model isn’t exciting, or entertaining, or even worth the effort anymore, you gotta make some changes. I love having a channel, but right now… I just don’t love the work I have to do to get things on it.
Hell, this entire post could just be what I need to type to vent and clear my head. I’m going nowhere as an individual – on channel and off of the channel. I have hardly dream anymore; I have no realistic goals to achieve in a decent time-frame; no hobbies to fully enjoy anymore, everything feels like work instead of fun; food’s losing its taste. I’m lonely even when surrounded by friends and in a relationship.
Life sucks right now and I feel like I’m drowning. I need something to change. Something to just go right for once and as it stands it’s probably not the channel until we change something up and make it feel new again… But if the channel can change and improve, then I’ve got something to strive for and focus on. Hopefully that will bring me back to my old self.
Thank you for letting me vent. Thank you for your support.
We hope things can shine a little brighter again soon.
So, we figured out what happened to the Elgato and it’s operational again. Woo! That’s ~$200 we don’t need to spend!
Depending on how today goes with scheduling (read: work), Resident Evil 7 could return tomorrow. If not tonight, we’ll be recording it tomorrow evening and it’ll return on Wednesday.
I’m also getting a desk-arm for my microphone – FINALLY, RIGHT? – so I plan on doing some solo stuff again. It might be gaming videos; it might be vlogs; it might be random things for other channels; it might be stuff for the Vidme channel because I’ve only been avoiding that for a long time.
So there we have it, an update – crisis averted and more stuff coming (hopefully).
I’ve been really shitty with updates this week – been a hell of a personal week.
So our capture card went to shit. Long story short, Resident Evil 7 is on hiatus. We’ll get to something on Monday, but not sure what. That’s about it.
Sorry for the lack of activity.
Hello, ladies and gentlemen, it’s SharkyHatGamer here with an update on a series we talked about some time ago – “For Honor”.
So, Matt and I were planning on playing through the campaign for the game together as it was advertised as having a split-screen co-op campaign. However, apparently they have removed that from the campaign back in October and the news of it did not reach either of us. So! There won’t be a “For Honor” series since we can’t play it together – it was sort of the goal. “Resident Evil 7” will continue until completion and we will move on to another series once we decide on a game.
Thank you all for your time!
If you’d like to help the channel, please support Sharky through his Patreon or Spreadshirt! It’s expensive to keep the editing software running. Also, follow SharkyHatGamer on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.
Hope you all are having a fantastic Sunday. This week marks the end of one series and the start of another! On Friday, the final episode of ‘The Last Guardian’ will be released and starting on Tuesday, BroOp Gameplay will begin ‘Resident Evil 7’.
So, from Tuesday to Friday, two BroOp Gameplay series! I’ll probably get another solo series going on Monday next week. Was thinking about doing it this week, but three series is a lot of editing, uploading, managing for the time that I have available.
Not 100% on what we’re playing next week, but leaning towards ‘Dreaming Mary’. Check out the channel for any surprises and updates!
