Drillimation posts every three days, and at the time of this blog posting, I’m currently in the Paldea region. Yesterday, I picked up my copy of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet and I’m already having a lot of fun with it. I’m just letting you know that the window renovations are complete.
A lot of you wanted to know what actually happened. The old windows of the wooden age were replaced with windows from the modern age. The procedure went way better than expected. They replaced my windows in a concise period of time. They began at 8:30 AM and finished at 3:00 PM. Roughly the length of a school day. By the time they were done, winter was already beginning to put its grip on us. This is the second Pokémon game in a row where I had to pick it up during the middle of a winter storm. For the majority of players living in temperate climates where snow is expected at that time of the year, we never like having to drive to GameStop or any other retailer to pick up our copies while it’s snowing cats and dogs. Despite this. Things went well. The roads were not that bad, but yesterday, we had a pileup in the Harborcreek ward.
Now that we’re three days in with the new windows, things have been looking good. I can at least get back to playing games and making them, as well as making music for YouTube. I hope you’re still looking forward to the 300 subscriber special on Wednesday, November 23.
It was still annoying having to move furniture so that the workers can reach the windows. The desk that has my MacBook, as well as the place where I put my glasses when I sleep at night, had to be moved. The MacBook desk also has some confidential information related to Drillimation, including design documents before and during Chuhou Joutai 1‘s development, which I have no intent on disclosing.
The last time I had to do this was when the first major renovation at Drillimation came in when the carpet was replaced. I had just gotten the desk that I’m using right now, and Chuhou Joutai 2: Paraided! was in the post-production phase. Unlike the window replacement, this involved everything, including my bed and such. This was a whole year before I even got my MacBook, and I had just started posting a lot more of my music content on YouTube.
If you were worried about things having to be delayed or canceled, the only one had to be the Super Mario Maker 2 livestreams, which I was gonna have to cancel if the construction spanned multiple days. The procedure was a success and wasn’t complicated at all. I’m already getting used to my new surroundings.
Anyway, I will continue my journey through Paldea, no matter how many days it will take. I hope to get the whole base game done by the time December rolls in. After that, I will begin work on Touhou Kourinden‘s third act, as well as doing the Mario Maker 2 livestreams until Christmas break and New Year’s. That’s where things will really change as Drillimation is rebranding the moment the clock strikes midnight to welcome 2023. May you hear from me again in the next three days.
