#20 Structure

Well met, my friends!

I’ve been a bit of a slacker when it comes to frequent blog updates. Since I’ve recently started my youtube channel and have committed to updating once a week on Sunday, I figured this would be a good opportunity to do the same for the blog.

From now on I want to update Mondays and Fridays. However, the Monday post will be a bit of a cheat, as I will merely mention Sunday’s youtube video. If the inspiration strikes, I might add some additional content to those posts. I have to say, making videos is harder than I thought – I’m glad that I don’t do a live show! Before writing this entry, I’ve recorded the opening for the second episode of Gamesäge. Suffice it to say that I have some heavy editing ahead of me. Oh and as you can see, I have decided to use the signature greeting and sign off from the youtube channel on the blog as well.

Other than that, I plan to write miscellaneous blog posts that may deal with writing, gaming, game design or any other topic every Friday.

There you have it, time to crank up the output :)

Pursue your dreams and see you next time!

#19 Gamesäge episode one!

Hi all,

I’ve finally joined the ranks of youtubers – I used to have a channel under a different name since 2006, but I did not upload any videos. For recognition purposes I’ve decided to use www.youtube.com/kaiherbertz as my main channel.

However, the show is called “Gamesäge”, which is pronounced “game sage”. Every week I will review one of my favourite games. In addition to merely reviewing it, I’ll have a closer look at the underlying mechanics. Thus, the name gamesäge has a sort of double meaning – it’s an odd spelling of the words game sage and also the word “Säge” is German for “saw”. With my metaphorical saw, I shall cut open the games and look inside to find out what makes them work.

Let me know what you think of the first video and tune in next week on Sunday when I will have a closer look at the game citadels.

Pursue your dreams and see you next time!
