State of Metadragon – Sep 2016

Hi All,


Since It’s been a while I thought I’d post a small update on the site and what’s been on my mind. “Metadragon” hasn’t seen a lot of updates this year, mainly because I don’t know where to go with it. I’ve made smaller updates here and there, and just recently refreshed the Warframe Selection Guide with the newest Info on Titania. I still play the game every now and then, albeit by far not as often. My newest passion and most of my time is going into Overwatch with a bit of Battleborn and Heroes of the Storm thrown in. On the side I’ve been playing “Master X Master” during it’s short open Alpha phase and it’s really been something. I will definitely cover that game a lot more once it finally gets released, since it is a boatload better than the rather stagnant League of Legends, which i dropped a few months ago.

All the aforementioned games, though not the intensive “time-fillers” I sometimes crave for. However this is also a good thing by my standards as I start to prefer quick hop-in / hop-out sessions more than hourlong sessions in one game, plus it gives me opportunity to try a lot of new games as they come out. This is also the main reason I avoid playing the new World of Warcraft expansion – as good as it may be – just because I know that it would totally suck up my creative energies.

What content?

Mentioning creativity – Since my reviews have not been all that well-percieved (both comments and visitor clicks) I’ve been experimenting with a lot of different formats. One includes starting a (native German) Audioblog section which can be found in the Blog menu above. I’m not sure if I should venture into trying spoken English during my videos and blogs. Don’t get me wrong – I’m pretty fluent in English, but proper intonation and finding the right words for doing a podcast is another level I’m not feeling comfortable with at the moment. It’s already hard enough to do it properly in my native language. 😉 But it’s a fun format and I try to diversify a lot more into that direction as I have now the proper audio setup and personal enjoyment to do so.

Another venture I’ve been meddling around in video editing. You might know that this website has a video section, but to be blunt I’ve not been very good with keeping that up-to date and also haven’t settled on one style or format. If you’re still interested you can have a look at my latest Overwatch Video Montage and tell me what you think.

Well, I think that about sums up what’s been on my mind lately. It’s not much overall, but I still love writing and web design in general, so I will keep this site updated for the next few years to come. No matter If you are a regular visitor or just dropped by: I’d always hope to hear feedback from you because it helps me improve and find entertaining formats that stick.

See you soon,
Fen (Mike)
