Ultra realistic flash games

I have to say: personally, worst episode yet contender. Learning for exams, extra work and trying to boost Gut in Overwatch while coming down with an illness of some description does not contribute; simply put, I am quite tired and I think it shows, the commentary being worse than usual. Unlike previously, however, (aside from the fact I have no time on Thursday), I am not liking the idea of publishing those on different days anymore. The whole point of consistency is not to do that, or so I am told, and that honestly is one of the few purposes of this series.

So, have a rather underwhelming episode. I promise I’ll come back next week, sweeping in with the cool memes and yokes the hip kids use nowadays. Also special effects. Sparkles, confetti. Good things.

E3 EA 17

Just a simple Vodvill upload of me, Lucas and eventually Gut watching this year’s E3 EA conference while making rather questionable comments about it. I really am not sure where is the value in watching people attempts at jokes over a chaotically cut footage of something you probably watched already, but then again, the Let’s Play format is a thing so I suppose it’ll be okay. People seemed to like this when we did it last year with Ubisoft despite the horrible video quality, so whatevs.

TGN Spooks

Here’s a scary thing: YouTube partnership. The appended video goes over the basics, aka “don’t panic, nothing really changes”. Although it does: honestly, giving away an undisclosed percent of my revenue to BBTV gets me access to some really nice analytics/metadata tools, an otherwise rather pricey music library I can use at will and several less useful things like possible merchandise.

I really doubt I’ll get some direct exposure or channel support out of this from the TGN people but the tools alone are in my eyes well worth the pennies that go into this from my end. Well, we’ll see how it works out. Hopefully well.

Scary Shit

Ever heard someone say the phrase “scary shit”? Well guess what: we gave the collocation a bit more literal meaning. Don’t worry, “a bit more”, not entire literal meaning. No actual feces is featured in the video.

In a way similar to my older Roblox creepypasta reading series, I grabbed Lucas and we tried doing a couple of reads for Vodvill. The resulting videos should hopefully be sufficiently scary. And somewhat shitty. So enjoy your frights and scares, because for some reason, people are really into that nowadays:

Newgrounds gets worse, somehow

If you asked me a week ago what are some really questionable PR practices, chacnes are “promoting a gamedev program by making a game creation contest with a tight time limit aimed at people with no programming experience” would be pretty high on the list. But mistaken once again, the masterminds behind Construct 3 proved me wrong.

In the newest Wednesdayren episode, I exlore the great world of hastily made Construct 3 games, half of which are apparently based on pre-existing templates only with minor edits and some (BEAUTIFUL) custom sprites added. Looked at Construct 3 after recording – have to say it’s atleast not as bad as Construct 2 and there seem to be some nice new features. In light of that, this C3 game jam endeavour perhaps seems even more tragic.

One of my less inspired works

I don’t know. It feels like the previous Wednesdayren videos were more or less a bit consistent – with Newgrounds I feel like I am just going around, clicking random crap and then pointing out that it’s random crap. Even better in this episode, where half of the time I read poorly written stories in “visual novels”. I guess I am yet to find the ideal position for doing these – and, if not, just suffer through the next eight episodes hoping it’ll pass over quickly.

Also tried doing something cool for the Vodvill channel but unfortunately I found out that the things I needed to rotobrush were absolute garbage in regards to their rotobrushability, so I uploaded just a bit of the remaining scrap. Regardless, Wednesdayren:

Vodcast, eventually

Managed to finally, after a month of it being recorded, finish and upload the first episode of Vodcast, the really questionable “podcast” kind of thing I did with Lucas and Gut for Vodvill. It looks like the audio wave circle sort of thing in the top left corner is somewhat off by a few dozen milliseconds and I don’t know why. I’ll have to toy with it a little bit for the next one but I really did not want to go back and fix it after 6 hours of rendering.

We didn’t really plan anything for the first session we did so it is a little bit weird and the topics rather unappealing. But hey, if we set the bar really high the first time, that would only mean we would have to try really hard the second time, which I suspect none of the three of us really wants. So here: Vodcast.

What music, PR and good taste have come to

Well, then there’s that. I generally don’t feel like doing them online legos anymore, but perhaps having to write a formally corrent ten thousand word work on a topic I feel really skeptical about influenced my decision making. Just felt like calling the masterminds of Public Relations over at Roblox Corp out on this one a bit, as no one else apparently will.

That aside, yeah. I think I am done with the bigger portion of my -hitting the keyboard- part of semester, now it’ll be the more fun writings. And a lot of studying for exams, but hey, shouldn’t be as time consuming, so some of the planned videos should come out finally. For now, here: PR and raps.

Report jakiro pls

This has been positively an abysmal idea. As the Wednesdayren series reached the 10th episode, I wanted to do something that could be really fun. It wasn’t.

I really don’t know how I associated “fun” and “Dota2” but there it is. Long term alcohol consumption effects seem to finally manifest. Sadly, given that these videos need to be made in one day, I really didn’t have time for an alternative, so let’s just try to forget this exists as fast as possible. Speaking of: here’s the poll to determine the next 10 episodes again.
