My Summer Plan

My Summer Plan

By: Leonard Dixon

Here’s the end of the Heated Gaming (formerly “The Game Station”) hiatus with my summer plan. After all, I am still in school (currently a freshman in high school.)

First of all, I plan to build a brand new enthusiast-level gaming PC. I wanted to get the most out of my experiences in games such as Dark Souls 3 and Overwatch, and as such, sought to get the funds to build something higher-tier than anything I had before. This means that content related to video should be of a higher quality than seen before.

Here’s the specs of my planned PC:

Secondly, I plan to properly launch the Heated Gaming Podcast. Keep in mind that it will likely be updated more consistently than my blog, as I find it more enjoyable to create and that it’s easier to relay a higher volume of useful information to my readers and viewers.

Last, but not least, I plan to open up a personal YouTube channel under the name Khan’s Trilby, and begin uploading some easy-to-make content for people who like my personality to enjoy.

Overall, there’s a lot more Heated Gaming content coming up sooner rather than later. Speaking of brand new Heated Gaming content, why don’t you check it out? Links to the first episode of the podcast and my YouTube channel (not yet fully started) below.
