A bit earlier here on Ramblings, I mentioned that I wanted to change the UC area, for reasons that I won’t do into details here. The matter of this issue is though, I simply don’t have enough time to do what I really wanted to do (like upgrade Quake – but it’ll still be there in OS 9 goodness). So instead of making any promise I can’t keep, I’m just going to stick with reality and say that some changes will occur. I’ll state right here, the biggest change is the simple fact that I am somewhat tired of just displaying less popular gaming systems. While I enjoy doing it, I also would love to display the Genesis, Atari 2600, Playstation and more. Not all at once of course. Thus for 2012, I’m indirectly going to call it the Underdog Chamber +, where the ‘+’ is going to stand for the competition that went against the underdog systems I have on display. I’m going to try to display things by generation (1st gen, 2nd gen, etc.), and show systems that beat the underdogs during each generation of console. How much of this I get done, only time will tell. How well it will be received in another thing too, but I can’t predict that until it actually happens. Consider this a test.
The other big area I wanted to seriously improve was signage. I want more display boards behind systems, with more information for casual (and hardcore) gamers to be able to read, to garner more information about systems on display. This is the one area where I am way behind in, and will not fully be able to implement by show time. At least I don’t see that happening, between work and school, time is somewhat short.
That is it for now. Have a fun New Year’s for those who celebrate it. Goodbye 2011, hello 2012! 😉
