April is an interesting month for one very special reason. Star Wars Celebration has come around once again, but this holds a bit more importance as it is celebrating forty years of the franchise. I've only been a fan for a quarter of that time, but it's been an awesome experience.
The films, the games, the books and comics - especially the Republic Commando series - have all been keeping me interested. And especially the animated TV series, which is really when I started to grow into being the fan I am today.
Last month I teased something new that would be released to the Kindle Store either this month or next. In this update, I can now unveil that. Over three years ago, I had an original story running called TV and Film Residential Camp.
It was a story about an unknown country down in the southern hemisphere that liked to keep to itself. A student holiday wasn't all that it seemed, and one student was able to break out of the memory alterations. He took a trip to the United Kingdom, and specifically a town called Halesowen.
Just a slight change to the title of these monthly updates to give clear indication of what they are. Clarity is key, after all.
I said I wanted to start uploading some Sonic Generations videos in the run-up to Sonic Mania's release, but my laptop is no longer wanting to record and play games at the same time. And when I do try and record, it is wildly inconsistent with how it plays out.
With the rebrand complete, the Cyber Digital Services name will no longer be appearing for any network updates. Instead, as you can see, it's just a simple Network tag. As for expanding what I said when I posted the next part to Crossover Corruption, everything is ready, but holidays and other stuff made me forget to post.
So as a revised schedule for those posts left, the next episode of Doctor Who: The Star Wars Chronicles will be coming in two parts. The first half this week and the last half at the end of the month. The start of our look through the Power Rangers series will be in the middle of the month.
December here at last, and with it brings Rogue One. Just as with The Force Awakens, I'll be watching it near my birthday. Unlike with The Force Awakens, I'll actually be getting a review done near the time I watch it.
Updates to Crossover Corruption and Doctor Who: The Star Wars Chronicles never happened during November as it's that time within a university semester when most of the work gets done. They will definitely be updated this month.
So with the Nintendo Switch announced at last, I gave my thoughts on the reveal. And with no new information coming from Nintendo until January, I feel this could be the perfect time to offer some ideas into games that could come for the system.
One of which is something I've said would have been perfect for the Wii U, but with development now entirely on the Switch, it will have to do. I won't cover too much on games we know are coming, since I plan to cover those elsewhere.
Last month's update was big. This month there won't be much to say. Work continues on making Wattpad the home of all my written fan-fiction, and the next part of Doctor Who: The Star Wars Chronicles will be uploaded as soon as possible.
I also really want to get a proper cover on The Chameleon Chronicles, as there are now two published stories with proper covers. I will also be sorting out a proper banner for my WattPad profile which has the new name of DarkRula Media on it.
This post is coming later than planned as I took a week out. I could have uploaded earlier, but as the title says (while still fitting in with the naming structure set out at the beginning of the year) there are certain events this month happening.
Not in the same way as last month, where I was at Summer of Sonic, but still events. Currently I am sat in my university room awaiting the start of the last year. My last year. That doesn't mean I won't be updating things here, of course. I still have plans, and they will happen - including the sad demise of a name.
Cyber Digital Services was a name - a name I had so often used when younger and fantasising over running an entire business of media related works. I still want the name to live on, though I realise at the core I've been doing things under a different name.
I covered the Star Wars Celebration event last month, but despite also mentioning the Sonic 25th party, I didn't cover it. Of course I'm happy we're getting two new games - even if both won't be released until next year. Sonic Mania looks to be an evolution of the classic games, and Project 2017 seems to be channelling Generations while still going its own way.
However, the bigger reason why I didn't cover it was because I'll be at Summer of Sonic. I'll be able to give impressions of Sonic Mania from my own experience playing. I can also cover Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice, and give my experience on the event as a whole, but I'm sure the main focus will be on Mania.
After not giving any focus to Doctor Who: The Star Wars Chronicles last month, this is the month that focus will appear. The Past, Present, Future article will be up sometime next week, as well as the next part of the story.
I decided it might be better for no stories to be posted so a longer transition period could happen. Probably not the best idea, but this allows for new story parts to get back to beginning of the month posts.
