      So this weekend is the Good Guy Gamers 2017 Extra Life stream.  I am so super excited for this, we've got some great games lined up, and some pretty quality stretch goals (one involves me).


      The donation page is here: Good Guy Gamers

      Complete with info about our chosen hospice and schedule for games.


      We'll be streaming here: https://www.twitch.tv/officialgoodguygamers

      So be sure to stop by between 1300 GMT tomorrow the 18th of November and 1300 GMT on the 19th (also 0800 EST, and 0700 UTC).


      This should be a blast and it'd be great if you joined us.  I'll be keeping an eye on the chat for the whole 24 hours so drop by and give us a wave.  Even more fun would be getting us to $1500, which is when I do something embarrassing on camera  jack

      Hi everybody!


      So I streamed some Lego Harry Potter yesterday and it was great fun.  I'm hoping to do some more this week and again at the weekend, but I don't have a schedule yet, kinda playing it by ear.


      In the meantime, here's a clip of my getting a very simple puzzle totally wrong!

      I have a Twitch channel! I haven't done anything with it yet, but I'm planning on streaming a few games this weekend to get things started.  I've also yet to get a second monitor and my laptop doesn't seem to want the job so I'll make do for now.


      Games I might stream: Lego: Harry Potter; Lego: Hobbit; Lego: Lord of the Rings; Rocket League; Battlegrounds; Tales from the Borderlands; Borderlands 2; LIMBO; and some weird puzzle game called Zup! 3.  Might take it easy tomorrow with some Lego: Harry Potter and maybe some Rocket League.  Because I'm playing it by ear right now, I'll send out a tweet when I'm about to start, which might be tomorrow although Sunday is more likely.


      Here's a link to my channel: https://go.twitch.tv/andytheciderman


      Hope to see some of you there at some point!

    • My RTX/North American/Other Stuff Adventure!

      1 month ago

      Catchy title eh?


      What do you mean 'no'?


      Anyway, here are some pics from my summer adventures, and some links to my Flickr albums for you to enjoy :)


      First up is Vancouver.  I went here as part or my North American adventure and visited before heading down to Austin for RTX.  A beautiful and incredibly interesting place, I saw my first orca here.  RTX was next, and it was my first chance to meet my GGG and OCC friends.  I had a wonderful time and it certainly won't be my last RTX, it might be an 'every other year' thing though, but I'll see.  I've included my favourite snaps from here down below.  After that it was down to Galveston for the GGG Meet Up beach holiday.  That was a smashing week and it was a shame I had to leave early.  Definitely keen to go to the next one and play silly buggers with those guys again.  And finally on this trip was one day in New York, first time there and it wasn't long enough to do it justice, but it was a great day.


      Here are the links to my Flickr albums:

      Guess this is as good a time as any to fire off another journal. It's been too long!


      Not much has changed since my last journal.  I'm still in Edinburgh, I'm still at the same job, and everything is going smoothly.  I am still thinking about what I want to do after I leave this job.  there are many options, but I'm leaning towards priority number one being staying in Edinburgh and seeking alternative employment. I might go into a cycling job, possibly something a bit different, or maybe inquire about joining Rockstar North as a games tester, which really would be something different.


      After a couple of injuries last year, I'm finally back on my bike commuting to work.  I only live a mile away from my office so I have to mix it up to keep it interesting.  We've also started a Friday ride-out at work, which is proving popular.  Today was the second ride and the first time I've crashed in over 5 years.  I took a unfamiliar corner too quickly and a gate appeared in front of me.  I slammed the brakes on, skidded the back wheel, dodged the gate and a huge mean looking rock, and skidded to a halt in a ditch.  Only a few scratches and some foliage attached to my ankle, the bike was fine.


      Apart from that, nearly all of my free time is spent either watching pro-cycling on Eurosport or playing zee gamez with the GGG.  I've now switched predominantly to the PC and it's awesome, playing the League of Rockets, the Grounds of Battle, the Siege of Rainbow 6's, and the 5's of Auto Grand Theft.


      Anywho, that's enough about me. How are you???


      Edit: Oh yeah! And thanks for the comments people! You're all the best :)

      Do you ever get memories that you're absolutely positive are true and accurate, but just turn out to be complete nonsense?  I know this is a real phenomenon and is particularly common with childhood memories, but I just had it happen today.  As in, I remember something that happened this morning that turned out to be complete and utter bollocks.


      So the situation is, my little team of three people has a super secret walk-in cupboard on the other side of the office (totally not super secret) and we keep the key for said cupboard of secrets on my desk.  Early this afternoon, I had to return a box of things to the cupboard that I'd taken out this morning, literally a gap of three hours, and I have a crystal clear memory of me bringing the key back to my desk, including where I held it and where I put it when I got back to my desk.


      So I go to look for the key, it's not on my desk.  Oh shit, where the hell did I put it?

      No one else has used the cupboard today, so where have I put the sodding key?

      I look on my desk, nope not there.  It's not in it's normal hiding place.  Did I sweep it accidentally under my keyboard? Nope.

      I know, it's in my pockets! That's what I always do with it! Nope, not there.  I haven't knocked it onto the floor have I? No.


      *Breaks news to boss that I've lost the key.


      Continue to look for it everywhere.

      Boss asks, "have you left it in the door of the cupboard?" No definitely not, I definitely brought it back here.

      Did I accidentally throw it away? No.  Am I sure it's not in my pockets? It's not in any of my pockets.

      Boss says, "you'll absolutely have left it in the door".  "No I totally haven't, stop talking nonsense!".


      I know! I'll have put in the box of things I have to take back to the cupboard.  That's definitely it!

      It's not in there.  "Are you sure? Check again." Nope not in there.


      Boss says, "I bet you it's in the door". "No no, we're just not looking hard enough."  It must be under the desk for sure.  It's not under the desk.


      Boss orders me back to the cupboard to check the door.

      "Well alright then, but I definitely brought it back here".


      ....mumbling about wasting time....


      It was in the door of the cupboard.


      What the hell brain?!?!?!

      Cue the laughter and ridicule from my colleagues.


      This has been an Andytheciderman tale of woe.

      So... a few months back, you warned us about an RTX post you were going to make. If enough people post their RTX experiences, I can piece together what it would have been like to attend.  stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye
