Resurrection, again, and again.

As if I keep on resurrecting this dead horse, over and over again; I need to talk about a new plan I have. I’ve noticed a new wave of Twitch channels that concentrate on either a single game, a single game genre, or even a single game console, rather than just playing the latest and hottest game that’s out. So I’ve come up with the idea of returning to Twitch; but rather than trying to beat a random game, or play something that’s new, I would concentrate on the system that I loved as a kid, the humble GameBoy.

The return of the Blog!


Yup, I’m actually going to try and bring this blog back from the dead and do something with it! Yup, I’m going to bring this thing back from the dead, and it’s coincidental that I’m doing this in October! One of the jolts into reviving this blog is that I’ve started to record Let’s Plays of a new game that I’ve been waiting for, and I have plans to make videos and reviews, so keep you eyes out on this Blog, because this Frankenstein monster is going to get wild!

The GreatBitBlog Announcement, IN HD!

Nintendo Gameboy

I come with some news regarding the future of the GreatBitBlog. In the new year, 2015, I will be taking my website, and begin to work on it full time.

In the last seven or so years, I’ve been struggling to begin a career of my choice, and have been working in retail for a little too long. I went to University thinking that I wanted to be a programmer to discover that it wasn’t for me, I went in search of IT related jobs and resulted with nothing. It’s safe to say that it’s very difficult to the job you want these days; however seeing people like Pewdiepie, Markiplier, GameGrumps, The Game Theorists, and Clint from Lazy Game Reviews, I’m inspired to take on my own internet media job, and use my blog as a hub. If I can’t get the job I want, I’ll make my own job, and I’ll be turning GreatBitBlog into my own company. This means that in the new year, I’ll be releasing consistent content throughout the year, including blogs, videos, podcasts, streams and getting involved in more social events compared to previous years.

What I’ll be doing in the next few weeks or so is make an open conference/livestream that I’ll run on Google Hangouts or Twitch.TV. So if you’re interested, head over to my FaceBook page and keep an eye out for a public event for my open conference.

So what do you think? Do you think I’m super inspired by YouTube stars? Am I going to be a sell out? Write in the comments below!

Pinball LOLZ

So yeah. Zen Studios released their popular Pinball FX2 on Steam. So I got it and downloaded the StarWars tables, as I didn’t get them for the XBox360 version. It’s pretty good, so I streamed a bit of it on my brand new “GreatBitStream” on twitch.tv. And well this happened!

Who-da-thunk-it that Yoda sounding like Duke Nukem would be damn funny! lol!

Business card sample from the printers.

Oh yes! With RetroRevival in a week’s time, I have to get ready to physically spam the blog as much as I can! So what’s the plan? The plan in business cards!

So yeah, I received my sample card from the printers today, and it looks awesome! Not to mention that I have a pair of shirts being printed too, though I won’t be able to see those until Wednesday. I just can’t wait for next week! 😀
