A lot has happened this week and I’ve changed a lot of my thought processes. I’m a bit sad that I couldn’t keep up with my studies over this last week. But ya gotta do, what ya gotta do. Especially when it comes to paying the bills. On the plus side my birthday is coming up and my wife has given me the go head to upgrade my current desktop rig. What will I upgrade….
Updating My Rig
- Fractal Define S
- Intel I5-4690k
- MSI Classified
- 16gb HyperX Savage
- EVGA GTX 1080
- Mushkin Enhanced 512gb SSD
- 7200RPM Unknown 700gb HDD
- Blackweb Keyboard and Final Gaming mouse
- One 24″ LG monitor and Two 17″ LG monitors
Upgrades? There’s still a lot I wish to upgrade. My storage is lacking. I could definitely use a few more terabytes of storage. However I could also use a CPU upgrade. So what am I going to upgrade first? Monitors…
Of all things why the monitors? Currently the two 17″ are very lacking. It’s making it hard to follow tutorials because they barely run 720p. Its not sharp and makes it hard to read when there is a “read a long”. That being said, I ordered two more 24″ LG monitors to replace the two 17″ monitors.
My plan for my next upgrade is to wait until I’m closer to my game design goal. Kinda like an incentive to work harder.
My friend came up to me the 1st of May and said class had started. He seems pretty excited. I can’t wait to see how it turns out for him. But as for me. I still want to completely surpass him. I want to launch my first game before he graduates in the next 2 years.
Its kinda funny how things can kinda just fall into place. I’ve decided to take another crack at udemy. Like I said before I’m not much for classroom settings. But the other day I got an email saying that Udemy was having a site wide sale. So I figured why not check it out and that’s when I found a course that was 22 hours long that taught nothing but game art. Its teaching everything from concept art to game assets and even character design. The best part is the teacher has had 10 years of experience in game art. Its exciting to learn from a creator.
My goal for today and tomorrow is to at least get through 10 hours of the course. Then finish it the next day off I get. Once I finish the course I will post again what I think and whether or not it was worth the money.
Until then have an awesome week!
