Hello Everybody,

I’m Z-Dude, and I’m also one of the Let’s Players here at BBTHQ. I have to apologize for my hiatus, and lack of posting, but school has been keeping me busy. I do plan to return to uploading/posting videos next week! You guys can look forward to the next episode of my Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team Let’s Play around this upcoming Monday. If you want you can always subscribe to my YouTube channel to stay one step ahead of the other readers here, but you can always just follow this blog to be alerted as to when a new video of mine goes up on this blog.

I know this type of post isn’t normal for this blog, but being as I’m a Let’s Player for this blog, I thought I should let you guys know when I plan on returning to adding videos to this blog.
