Edit: Hiatus soon to disappear on January/early-February!
[ Read Description for More Info ]
I'm going to state this right off the bat that it IS very sudden, so that's one thing that I'm really sorry about.
The other is that starting today, I'm putting vib-ribbon on a hold. Recently, my PS3 controller's gone to hell and can't even be used properly anymore. So of course, I switch to the keyboard...a few problems. One, it feels so unnatural that even the normal-difficulty beatmaps that I'd have no problem doing become something a lil' easier than a hard-ribbon beatmap. Two, another recent thing (that I got no idea if it has any connection to me using the keyboard or not) is that the emulator is hell-bent on just ruining my runs. Before, there is this once-in-a-blue-moon scenario where during a run...well, the best I can describe it is that the audio starts melting down, becoming garbled for a few seconds. But now, that chance has increased hundredfold. Those two things combined has turned my routine of doing vib-ribbon videos from a nice hobby to some kind of horrid chore, and thus, the hiatus.
I'm a man at the age of 20 with no job (and no luck on applying for one, either) who lives with my parent's house, paying for my college and giving me a lil' allowance from time to time. From the very first day I've done a vib-ribbon video, not knowing that more than a thousand people enjoy me taking their requests and making vib-videos, to now, I've not made a single cent from any of this; I don't put up ads on the videos. I've only been doing this for so long for two reasons: One, it gives a nice weekly thing for me to do, being able to hear people's music preference and playing them on a game. But two, more importantly, I wanted people to be happy. Even with the beatmaps that are frustratingly hard (I'm looking at you, the beatmaps requiring sight-reading), I pressed on to do the best I can for everyone watching, especially for the ones who requested the songs. But...with the circumstances, I can't tolerate playing it anymore.
I would like to give a huge, HUGE thanks to everyone up to this point to the following:
- Everyone who's been watching, subscribed, and/or requesting the songs.
- My parents for being able to put up with me and keeping me alive.
- NanaOn-Sha for creating vib-ribbon in the first place.
- HomeStarRunnerTron and Martoon for having upgraded me from a subpar emulator into a MUCH more brilliant emulator (an emulator that's now hellbent on ruining me sadly).
- Caddicarus for having shown me this game, and inspiring to create this series, from this very video: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
And now, with all that said...I bid all of you adieu. May I come back to this series at some point in my life...
