RetroBlast is on hold right now. I've got two major problems in regards to RetroBlast:
1. I simply don't have any time to work on the podcast right now. I'm very busy at work, and I've got a ton of stuff going on in my personal life as well. Just simply not enough hours in the day.
2. I've kinda lost my retrogaming mojo. I've tried recording episode 18 two different times. Each time I had to stop cause I just didn't have any passion when I was doing it, and it sounded horrible. I was basically going thru the motions. How did I lose my Retrogaming mojo ? Well, I used to be really into modern gaming, and didn't really care about retrogaming all that much, but then I got really, really bored of what was going on in modern gaming. I hardly ever played my Xbox One, and when I had my PS4, I hardly ever played that. Then I started to get back into retrogaming in a major way, and started up the podcast.
I'm still bored to death by Xbox One and PS4, but I recently got a HTC Vive (this VR headset thing). The HTC Vive has really blown me away. I feel like I felt when I first saw Doom or Super Mario 64. Anytime I have any free hours (which isn't very often ), I've been playing around with this VR stuff. I really think it's a game changer. I know that it's super early days in VR ( kinda like the Pong / Atari 2600 years ), but I can see the potential. I honestly think in 10 years people will look at two dimensional screens like most people look at 4:3 CRT tv's.
So, what does this mean for RetroBlast ?
I don't really know right now. I know that I won't be quite as busy in late June and early July, so I could probably get back to podcasting then, but I'm just wondering if I'll actually have the drive and passion to deliver quality episodes. I definitely don't want to fake it. My hope is that I will get my retrogaming mojo back and will be able to return to making episodes of RetroBlast, but there are no guarantees. I will say that if any new episodes are coming, they would probably start arriving in July, I don't think I'll be able to squeeze out any episodes prior to July.
I know this sucks. I wish I had more hours in the day to work with.
