It’s been pretty quiet here for the past 2 weeks. Well the truth is I have been training for EVO. I’ve been playing Tekken Tag 2 for 4 – 6 hours a day 5 days a week and I’ve been working out for 30 minutes to an hour for 5 days a week.
I signed up for EVO as my first tournament and I’m going in with the goal of not going 0 – 2… well that was the original goal until I got fucked out of $100 dollars. Now I’m aiming to make my fucking money back.
Rant aside, I do have plans to change a lot around on this site.
No More FGC News
I started this website with the intent of covering FGC news for all fighting games. However, it quickly became clear that I needed to devote more time to writing than I did to playing the game. This was a good idea for SFV, but once I started playing Tekken Tag 2 in preparation for Tekken 7 I couldn’t take time away from playing to keep this site up to date. Add on top of this the fact that I wasn’t getting paid for this.
At one point, I realized my passion for gaming came from playing them more than writing about them. I assumed, for some dumb ass reason, that I wasn’t cut out for playing at a pro level. In all honesty that’s my fault.
I let too many unimportant people in my life convince me of my worth. That’s part of the reason why I gained over a 100 pounds since I started college and why I have struggled to lose it.
Long story short, I felt that being on the side lines was perfect for someone as talent-less and fat as myself. This kinda led me to taking gigs and volunteering for things which put me in the background and not in the foreground.
So yeah, dark times. Something clicked in March that made me realize that I was gonna continue to be a fat loser unless I did something about it. So I did.
Cutting out writing is my way to reclaiming time I would spend writing articles to appease others to appease myself. Also I am, or at least I used to be, super devoted to perfecting games.
Once I got to college, and started hanging out with non-gamers, my personality shifted. I went from being this ambitious go getter to a people pleaser. I wanted everyone to like me for some reason. I still don’t why I thought that shit was a good idea.
Anyway, I’m breaking out of that. I need to stop roping myself into commitments that don’t go anywhere. I got my main game coming in a few months and aside from this mammoth, I’m not going to be writing a whole lot.
I’m done with trying to appease people and being stepped on for it. I’m gonna fuck bitches and get money… okay maybe not fuck bitches per say maybe like fuck them up in Tekken 7.
Since the tag phrase of this site is, “Talk. Play. Live. Fighting Games.” This site might just become a vlog with FGC resources or something. Just don’t expect me to update daily like I was. If I find a resource I will update it. Much like the tourney tab, I will keep it as updated as possible because lets face it, no one in the FGC is gonna maintain a calendar of tournaments. Event Hubs doesn’t even do it. They have a page where people input their own events. Even then they only promote the big ones and disregard the small ones like they were trash.
Anyway, I think the best way to promote the FGC as a female is to make it more or less a lifestyle. When I say that I mean vlogs, rants, and watching match footage. Men typically succeed making informative sites and what not because, lets be honest, men are usually straight the point. Women on the other hand we’re more open. We like to share our personal lives and what not.
I don’t really see that many women in the FGC that do much in the way of promoting the FGC. So suffice to say, this may turn into a less informal news site and more or less a lifestyle website.
Something else I wanna do is sell shirts. I started this site with some designs, but I don’t think too many people liked them. Instead I’m gonna make shirts that I wanna wear and wear them. If people are interested then I’ll get them mass printed. I already have a sick idea for a Dragunov shirt I wanna wear to EVO.
Anyway, yeah that’s pretty much what’s been going on. Now I’m not gonna talk about my period or what ever on here. I’m just gonna be a little more ranty when I have time to actually type stuff.
Thank you guys for reading the content on here. While it won’t be as formal it will still be entertaining as shit. Also I’ll have my own videos to pimp on here.
See ya when ever.
