Even though I have a new computer (which is why I've been playing so much Starcraft II and Football Manager 2011 instead of working on my own game), I still use my old laptop when I'm working on Sore Losers: Riot Grrrl (the game I'm developing). I do this because I use MS Paint to create the graphics for this game and the new MS Paint has an annoying habit of changing the colour depth of PNGs when you save them, which causes many a problem if you're using RPGMaker 2003.
Unfortunately, my laptop has decided to start the very slow process of dying, which would've meant I'd have lost the whole of this game if I wasn't backing it up properly... but I was backing it up properly, so I'll just continue development on my new computer using Paint.NET or something to get around the problems I have with the new edition of MS Paint.
The lesson here is basically this: BACK UP YOUR PROJECTS!
As far as the blog goes, I know I haven't really stuck anything up for quite a while so I will be trying to get some more reviews out over the christmas period. I don't really have much else to do since I'm staying at my parent's house over the holidays so, if I don't update, I don't really have any excuses!
