Just wanted to let folks know that I’m in super crunch mode this week and email, FB, blog, or forum PM replies are gonna be slow to come. I’m trying to get about a million things done before this weekend, and there are only so many hours in the day.
The good news is that Rose Colored Gaming is no longer an “I”, but rather a “we” as of yesterday! That’s right, I now have someone on board with just about the perfect skill set to compliment what I do and really help get things moving forward so that the brand can grow and we can (hopefully) handle the increased volume that’s been keeping me backed up for so long
Thanks for the ongoing support and love, folks! Stay tuned for more updates…
Hello to all you lovely gamers out there!
1st, I want to thank everyone who has been so incredibly patient with me while I play what seems to be an ever-lasting game of catch up since little Oscar was born. You guys and gals have been great, and I sincerely appreciate it
2nd, and with the previous statement in mind, we are working on a total revamp of the site, some of the products/services, and other features offered here at Rose Colored Gaming in order to provide a better experience for you and so that I can stay on top of what has become a booming little enterprise (again, thank you!).
As of this week (Sunday, May 12th) we won’t be taking on any new custom orders and we will be selling most of our existing products via eBay to simplify the ordering process while we build a proper storefront here on the site. The current plan is to be down for 3-4 weeks. This will also give us some time to build up an inventory of pre-modded Gameboys, Nomads, Wonderswans, Neo Geo Pockets, and any other time-consuming product that we produce. I get so many emails asking for simple pre-modded units, but simply do not have the time to keep up with custom orders AND keep a supply of pre-mods on hand. I want this to change so that there’s always product on hand, ready to ship for those that want it. I just placed an order for a MASSIVE amount of portable consoles from Japan and am working with a couple of fellows who will hopefully be able to help me get them modded with assembly line-like efficiency so that the supply doesn’t dry up.
I have a number of other features for the site that have been on the back burner for FAR too long. Look for:
• New FAQs and How-Tos
• Some promotional and instructional videos
• More photos and a bigger, better gallery
• New products and services
I will add a link to the eBay store as soon as the items are listed and will be posting updates through the next few weeks as things start to come together.
Questions, comments, and suggestions are still always welcome! In fact, I need your feedback more so now than ever. I love hearing from all of you guys and gals (as some of you may very well know, based on my often excited and long-winded email responses). So let me know if there’s anything that YOU think would make for a better experience on the site, purchasing goods and services, etc.
Wiggy and the RCG family
Again, thanks to all of you for the patience while I try and get life with a 8-week early baby sorted out!
I’ve got some new, simpler packaging in the spirit of getting these processed and shipped as soon as humanly possible. They should start shipping this weekend!
I’ll be making a quick installation video as per the many requests. Don’t worry, they’re super easy to install, it just requires that you apply it to a good, clean surface. I’ve started including a prep-wipe to help you folks get your micro nice and clean before installation.
I’ve also got a few custom micros brewing using these faceplates (like the Kirby mod). I’ll have pics of those and the faceplates themselves ASAP!
4-19-2013 Notice: Please excuse and delay in email/blog/FB/forum replies, shipping, or the completion of orders. As I’ve already posted, we had a baby at 32 weeks on the 16th. I’m so terribly sorry if this has caused any inconvenience or problems. Rest assured, I will take care of any issues, questions, or concerns as soon as humanly possible. Thank you for your patience.
I am putting a hold on any incoming orders for custom items until I can get caught up. I will resume taking pre-orders/orders for custom items once I’ve managed to catch up a bit. Keep an eye on the blog and Facebook pages for updates regarding my return to accepting new orders. I will continue to take orders for production items such as the micro faceplates, backlight kits, & Glass GBA lenses in the meantime.
If you already have an order placed or have sent an item or items in to be modded, then rest assured that you’ll be taken care of. I will NOT be canceling any orders as of this moment.
Wiggy, Wiggy’s Wife, and most importantly, Oscar
So, my wife has gone into labor a tad early (32 weeks). She’s been in be hospital for the last 4 or 5 days, and baby isn’t interested in waiting anymore. I think baby might take after me in that way. Probably bored out of its mind in there after 8 months of sitting around doing nothing
Anyway, it sort of goes without saying that I’ve been away from my desk for a few days and I’m rather behind on everything from answering emails/PMs/blog comments, to completing mods, to pretty much everything else that I do from day-to-day. I just don’t want anyone to think that I’ve forgotten about them.
Gotta run. Be back with updates as they come.
And little wiggy is here! 4lb baby boy! Feisty little bugger just insisted on coming 7 weeks early. Gonna get him modding some GBAs right away
