  1. LEVEL 7 Vengeance Complete Beat the game (God of War III Remastered) Incredible game! Really excited to do my second playthrough on Titan difficulty!
  2. Batman: Arkham Asylum This game is so fun and it really holds up well today. Currently on my first playthrough. The combat is really badass (somewhat simple, yes, but still really fun). Hoping to wrap this game up before December is upon us. God of War III Remastered Gonna pick this one up again today since I'm going back home today to my lovely PS4 Game has been great so far, and definitely improves upon its predecessors, especially in boss battles, gameplay, and visuals. I approve.
  3. I really like the percentage bars and the layout for the "Series" section. That's something I've never seen used before. How did you make them? (like the "Yet to Buy" ones).
  4. From what I read from the one-star reviews on Amazon, a few of the major problems people had: 1. There was apparently a 50 GB day 1 patch and people were mad that they had to wait forever for it to download (not to mention all the space it took up) before they got to play the game. 2. Some people complained that the servers weren't stable yet so they couldn't connect (that's to be expected) 3. Complaints about how it deviates from the traditional Fallout formula, especially with the whole "No NPCs" idea. 4. People complained it was a Fallout 4 re-skin and wasn't worth $60. 5. People were surprised that they needed PS+ to even play the game and they didn't want to buy it. 6. I saw this on a Gameranx video, but apparently on base consoles (PS4 and XBOX One) the framerate and game stability is atrocious, and the reviewer said that it definitely hurt the experience for him. I'm personally a fan of Fallout but seeing all of these issues, I'm definitely going to wait to see how Bethesda responds and improves their game. The whole "No NPCs" thing really turns me off because I mainly play games alone, so the one selling point of the game - the whole "play with your friends" mechanic - is kinda lost on me. I've never played it, but I've seen gameplay and I'm definitely hesitant, mainly because of framerate/stability issues (I know it's a Bethesda game, but that doesn't make it any better) and the idea of having no NPCs would make me feel incredibly lonely in the game (I know it's what they were "going for", it being a nuclear wasteland and all, but it still isn't exciting at all to be all alone in the world).
  5. God of War is looking like a whole snack for $22.

    Super excited to say I finally went ahead and launched a YouTube channel. Not gonna lie, this first series isn't going to be anything special, it's just going to be a walkthrough of Batman Arkham Asylum to allow me to at least get some content on my page and get used to using YouTube/video editing while I get some more equipment to enhance things.

     

    Definitely need to buy a mic, I was testing audio when I recorded last night and there was a lot of reverb. Probably a combination of the room I'm in and my mic quality, I'll definitely work on fixing that up for the next series I decide to do.

     

    I'll be playing something on PS4 for my next games, with commentary as well. Thinking of playing Spider-Man on there since the game looks so amazing :D

      Also, don't make fun of my channel icon lol, that's what a quick crash course in Microsoft Paint will do for you :P

      I'm on the first page of search results, 3rd video from the top when you search "Batman Arkham Asylum Walkthrough Part 1" :o

      (Nevermind, I just signed out of my account and searched it and I can't find it in any of the top results anymore lol)

  7. Just recorded my first videos for Batman: Arkham Asylum! I've got no commentary on these, it's just a straight up playthrough just so I can get used to the tech and comfortable with making thumbnails, uploading, and video editing. Also, my mic was hot garbage so the audio quality was terrible for commentary so I decided to ditch that for this first game. I'm planning on doing commentary for my second series, however.

     

    Another question for you lovely people: any good mics on the market that are (relatively) cheap? I know @cronocyde has a badass set-up and mine doesn't look nearly as good. I don't want to blow through hundreds of dollars on a mic, but looking for one that can provide clear audio so that I don't sound like garbage when I speak lol :giggle:

      I'm not sure what you call cheap or expensive but the Sony Wireless (does come with a wire so I'm guessing you can record things) are about £80 and are amazing, I've had two in the span of 4 years and the audio is crystal clear. I know some streamers use a mic called a snowball, besides that I don't know much about it. xD

      I'm going to copy my response in private here in case that could help anybody else ;-)

       

      Thanks for the kind words and sorry for the delay, crazy day here!

      So here's my exact setup:

      - Logitech C920 as my webcam.

      - Blu Yeti mic.

      - Green screen with right lighting.

      - Elgato HD60.

       

      I use Audacity to clean-up my audio and use HitFilm Express 4 for my video editing. All of those software are free to use. I use OBS to record with multi-layers, depending if I stream, record, etc...

       

      Let me know if you have any other questions, and thanks for the sub, means a lot! :-)

      If you're looking at the best cheap mic, check out the Yeti Snowball dude, it's the best for the price. The Blu Yeti is a beast though, I love it!

  8. So I just sunk about ~$150 into buying all the gear necessary to start recording gameplay (seriously, Elgato isn't cheap lol). I've ALWAYS wanted to start a YouTube channel for gaming as a kid (as all kids usually do) but I never acted upon that idea because I was afraid of failing at it and wasting my time.

     

    Now, I'm really committed to making this a thing for myself. I know, not everybody makes it and that's okay, and I understand it takes a lot of time and patience in order to start seeing any sort of results for your work, and I'm okay with that too. I'll do whatever I have to do to actually make this work for myself because I'll never know if I can do it if I don't give it a shot.

     

    My question is: what do people want to see (specifically, you guys)? I don't really know what to play, and I'm going to have to experiment with it a bit. I only have my PS3 with me at the moment, making things even more complicated :P but I'll be home soon to see my beautiful PS4 again 😍

     

    Any advice is appreciated, thank you :)

      Thanks for the support, I really appreciate it guys :D

       

      Hoping to have recorded a video and have it ready to upload by the weekend, going to have to mess around with the set-up because I still have a bit of learning to do with the whole thing!

      My advice is to stay true to who you are.  If you're a thoughtful, quiet person, be that.  If you're a garrulous, rowdy person, be that.  See if you can make whatever you have naturally going for you work.

  9. I've been waiting years for this moment. This plat is instantly going into my trophy cabinet.
  10. Shadow of the Tomb Raider already $30. I'm rolling 😂
  11. That Iron Spider Armor looks awesome! Can't wait to play the game!
  12. Good reason 👍 We'll get that lifted right away for you.
  13. I actually really like some of the avatars. Thanks for the heads up!
  14. inb4 someone comes along and says, "yeah the hacking sucks, but you guys had plenty of time to get the plat while the servers weren't filled with hackers it's been out since 2007"
  15. If you could be told the complete and absolute truth to a single question, what would you ask?
