Heya, folks! Lumpz the Clown here to talk a little bit about what I have in store for 2015 and beyond! Got a TON of exciting, new shit to share with all of you, but before I do, I wanted to take the time to summarize all of my online trials, tribulations and insanity that comprised 2014!
First of all, I started the year off by LPing one of my ALL-TIME favorite games: Rocket Ranger for the NES! A sweet mixture of precision, strategy and sheer luck, Rocket Ranger has been a personal favorite of mine since the tender age of 10 and NOTHING has compared to it since! Imagine my absolute cerebral explosion when I discovered that this game is getting an HD MAKEOVER! The devs were able to meet their Kickstarter goals, and I am SUPER EXCITED to see what they bring to the table!
Beyond that, life went on and I continued to upload LPs as well as post to my personal video-game review/tech blog I started in 2013, but I also received an invitation in June that seemingly came out of the blue: to be a part of the amazing movement that is known as Gaming Rebellion. I was initially brought in as a regular contributor writing how-to guides for the Technical Wasteland feature, but after some administrative shuffling and post-launch growing pains, I have since been upgraded to fellow administrator, along with my good buddy Derik Moore!
Together, along with Rizzard Core and Aggro Sky, we represent the brains behind Gaming Rebellion and our fellow contributors are the (also brainy, insightful and hilarious) brawn! Gaming Rebellion never ceases to amaze me and there is NO DOUBT in THIS CLOWN’S mind that we will continue to wreck shit going forward!
Also, I have had the distinct pleasure of expanding my writing to include video game satire news, alongside fellow Rebel Brent Jareske and TheKohlrabi! My first article went off with a bang, and I can’t wait to write more! I will also be assisting Brent with editing duties as needed, so be sure to give his site a peep, cuz it’s chock-full of FUNNY SHIT!
As for other dealings, I’ve also had the pleasure of guesting on my good buddy Steven Eidher’s CAPMAX HYPECAST a couple of times in 2014! We talked about all types of shit, from Twitch versus YouTube to Princess Peach Amiibo upskirts! 🙂 Steven is one of the most ardent and passionate collectors/gamers I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, and you should check out his YouTube channel for some of DAT HYPE! 🙂
Now going forward, as you can tell from my last two uploads (Clowny Counterpoint & Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 Highlights), I plan on moving Lumpz the Clown Entertainment into new and exciting territory! No longer will I be content with rolling out the same shit over and over again! Expect new custom art, dynamic splashscreens, and exciting animations in EVERYTHING I put out going forward! Spoofy trailers, comedy bits, horror stories, WTF moments, and of course LPs! NOTHING’S SAFE! My creativity has absolutely gone into OVERDRIVE and I CAN’T WAIT to show you folks what I got up my clowny sleeve!
I’m also still taking indie game LP requests, so be sure to let me know if you have a game you want me to show off to the interwebs! FREE hypeman AND Gaming Rebellion admin support…HOW CAN YOU LOSE?! Ask the guys over at 2Awesome Studio, Joe Chang & Nate Schmold bout Lumpz the Clown! My ever-growing list of Indie Game LPs can be peeped here! 🙂
As for future hardware/software wishes, I hope to severely BEEF UP my 2011 Mac Mini (current editing computer) with an SSD Drive along with more RAM! It’s may only be an i5, but I want that bitch to run as smooth as glass! I also plan to upgrade to Final Cut here in the near future as well, which means EVEN MORE video freshness to douse yourself in clowny sickness with! I’ve also scored a copy of Photoshop, and given my recent dealings with GIMP, I CAN’T WAIT to dig in and see what I can make with some PRO SHIT in my corner!
Future LP’s/reviews/whatever will include: Manhunt, Manhunt 2, Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Cat Lady, Silent Hill 3, SOS and MANY MANY MORE! I just hope that dickwipe Lame Video Game Guy doesn’t show up! :-/ There was an indie SHMUP thrown in there somewhere, but I forget its name! I knew it HAD to be good, because my good buddy Adam over at ReplayAbility told me about it! Be sure to check out their channel, as they are perhaps some of the FUNNIEST Canucks I have ever run across! Best believe that I WILL be sharing a beer or three with these guys in the near future, and possibly some old-fashioned collabs, so stay tuned for that and MUCH MORE!
2014 may be over, but Lumpz the Clown Entertainment is FAR FROM OVER!
