Hey one and all, thought I'd try to keep this updated a little better with what I've been doing away from gamespot.
Operation Supply Drop's 8 Bit Salute!
Yes I know I probably told you all about this to an extent already but I did manage to live stream for 24 hours on behalf of Operation Supply Drop, and while I didn't hit the $500.00 target I set for myself, or even come close to the amount raised by gamespot & Giant Bombs Team of @dannyodwyer and Matt Rory I did manage to raise a nice bundle of cash and so Don't feel so bad about the result.
My page seems to still be up over here to please feel free to pop over and donate if you have a single spare $1.
Life and Live streams
As a result of the 24 hour live stream just about two weeks ago now I've started running my own occasional live streams for both my honor (due to failing several of the tasks planned on the original night), and fun (because I've just been taken with the streaming bug). I generally stream around 11pm GMT do to my odd life and sleeping patterns and my streams focus on playing classic games at a low resolution so you dont have to (And because my kit is the cheapest and least reliable known to man). After playing through Resident evil 2 over the last two streams and Attempting a hell run over the one before that, I'm not sure what I'll be doing next, but hopefully it's fun for someone.

The video game advert archive
I've also been working on a new tumblr focusing on archiving and highlighting all the great and awful print and tv adverts through the history of our fine hobby.
Thanks to former Gamespotter Brendan Sinclair it's gotten a nice little following and I hope to grow the Tumblr into something really interesting and maybe educational.
If you have a soft spot for the often surreal, questionable and occasionally funny games adverts of the past feel free to take a gander.
Writing and Games
On top of all that I've been a busy little bee. As well as finding time to celebrate Fathers Day with my daughter and a friends wedding this past week, I've been playing Dark Souls with an aim to finally finish it so I can finally move onto Dark Souls 2 & South park the stick of truth. I've also been playing Max and the curse of brotherhood for 360 for review over at xblaratings while also penning a few bits about the WWE , How we play games and Reviewing Super Time Force over at True Geek Radio
So that's more or less most of what I've been up to the last couple of weeks, what have you guys been doing and what have you got coming up??
Now I'm off back to hunting those Lord Souls...
