The Novella Movin’ On Up Challenge Returns as a Let’s Play!

 

Hey everyone! I mentioned last week that I would be moving the Novella Movin’ On Up series over to my Youtube channel as a Let’s Play. Today the first video in the series went up! In this episode you’ll be meeting Arwen Novella and checking out her first couple of days in this new series. The game hits me with a couple of bugs, but all in all it was a good start! Check out episode 1 below or on Youtube!

The Retreaux Legacy Ch 1.11 – Ti’Ning The Pretty Princess

Hi everyone! What’s this? ANOTHER Retreaux Legacy chapter this week? Woah! I decided that since I am moving the Novella Movin’ On Up Challenge to Youtube that I could increase the frequency that I post the Retreaux Legacy stories here.

In our last chapter, Crono became a serial muffin burner. Almost every 5 minutes (or at least that’s what it felt like) he was making muffins in the kid oven and then forgetting about them, which caused them to burn. Let’s see what sort of shenanigans our intrepid family will get themselves into today!

The Retreaux Legacy Ch 1.10 – Burned Muffins

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted a chapter in the Retreaux Legacy. The last few weeks of summer were insanely busy for me, but things have settled down now that my kids are back in school. In our last chapter, Crono aged up into a child. We were able to get him to Platinum aspiration status beforehand which means that he’s off to a great start!

Decision Regarding Retreaux & Novella Stories!

Hi everyone! I know I said that I was going to wait until Friday to make a decision about this, but after looking at the poll results and doing some thinking about it on my own, I have made a decision about whether or not I am going to move the Retreaux and Novella stories over to my Youtube channel as Let’s Plays.

I was surprised at how many people actually wanted them to remain as written stories. Out of the 48 votes, 33% of you requested that they stay stories. While this isn’t the overwhelming majority, it was enough of you to make me think that maybe I shouldn’t move them both.

So instead I thought I’d come to a compromise and hopefully make everyone happy. The Retreaux Legacy will remain a written story. I prefer Sims 2 playthroughs as written stories. I love writing them and it kind of brings back some nostalgia for the old Sims 2 BBS days. So Retreaux will NOT be moving to Youtube.

However, I DO prefer doing Let’s Plays of Sims 4 playthroughs over writing them and to be honest, the Novella story was never very popular as a written series (at least compared to the Retreaux Legacy). The Movin’ On Up Challenge also seems to do better on Youtube than it does as a written story (at least in my opinion). So the Novella story will be discontinued here and restarted as a Let’s Play series on Youtube.

From now on, I think that is how I am going to work things. All Sims 2 challenges will be written stories here on the site, and all Sims 4 challenges will be Youtube Let’s Plays. I’m currently unsure whether or not I will do any Sims 3 challenge playthroughs. The game always tends to bug out for me.

I hope this works for all of you!

Stories vs Let’s Plays – Help Me Decide!

Hi everyone! I’m getting ready to come back from my 2 week long break and get back into the swing of things here and on Youtube. I have a question for all of you that have been reading the Retreaux Legacy and the Novella Movin’ On Up Challenge, however.

I’ve been considering moving these both over to my Youtube channel as a Let’s Play, but I am not sure if I want to or if I will be making it difficult for some of you to keep up with them if they move there. If they move to Youtube, I will be picking the stories up exactly where they left off. I will not be restarting them. The chapters that have already been written will stay on the website for everyone to read if they need to catch up.

I have created a poll and would appreciate it if you all could answer whether you prefer them as written stories or Youtube Let’s Plays. I’ll keep the poll up until next Friday, September 8th.

Thanks!

All Posts on Hold Until September!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you know that the next two weeks are going to be VERY busy for me and my family. We’ve got to start getting our kids ready for school (one of which is starting Kindergarten), have some friends visiting, and we are also going to be travelling next week (which means lots of packing and getting things ready). With this in mind, I find it unlikely that I’ll have much time to get much done in the way of website posts. So I am going to put all posts on hiatus until early September.

Once September starts I will be able to focus more on the website and I am planning posts at least 4 times a week.

See you then and hope you all have a great rest of your summer!
