ROSS RANTS: VR FOLLOW-UP

Subtitles: English

Here’s another originally unplanned video to accompany the original unplanned video! This is a followup video to the last Ross Rants episode, since I felt like there was enough commentary from people to warrant it, plus I had some new information to add. There’s nothing crucial in here if you didn’t have any trouble following the last one, btu that wasn’t the case for everyone. I originally planned for this one to take much less time, but all the minor diagram editing really ended up ballooning the time. In any event, it’s done, so here it is.

Right now my plan is to have at least one more Game Dungeon this month before moving into the Deus Ex series, however, I can’t promise any dates at this point. While rendering parts of this video, my computer completely froze up. I’m fairly sure it was due to the CPU overheating. Despite having a custom cooler and what I thought was decent case airflow, it’s apparently still not enough to tame it. I’m currently running my system with the case off and a fan blowing on it. In light of this, it’s just a reminder to me how technical setbacks can crop up, however I’ll try to have more videos out as soon as I can. In any event, I don’t have future plans to cover any more VR, I feel like I nailed it down between this and the last one.

Planetside 2 play session July 2016

Here’s the footage from the latest playsession again. Unfortunately this is the lower quality footage with no in-game sound. While I did record those both locally, they’re unfortunately out of sync with the twitch stream I think in about a hundred places and it’s just not worth it for me to correct it like I did with the last feed, I’d rather spend that time on more of the real videos. I think eventually I’ll come up with a better method of recording everything, but until then, this is what I have. I tried to timestamp a few of the highlights.

The next play session will be Emerald server on Augusth 13th, at 2pm EST again. I may try something different next time to make the game a little more interesting, I’ll see. In the meantime, more videos are coming before too long!

ROSS’S GAME DUNGEON: THE CHOSEN

Subtitles: English

Behold The Chosen: Well of Souls! I’m over a full week late with this episode than I was intending to, though in my defense, it grew into a monstrosity I wasn’t expecting. I originally thought this episode would be around 15 minutes, but it grew into a whopping 42 minutes as I found there was so much I wanted to say about it that I didn’t want to leave out. While I cut material out of every episode that I think isn’t the most vital, The Chosen is so packed full of “why did they do this” moments, that it was harder for me to leave so many out of the video. This really took a lot of time for me to do editing-wise, so I think the next episode will almost certainly be a shorter one, although I have lots of stuff planned.

I’d say it’s safe to expect more videos this month, though The Chosen should remind me never to promise deadlines since I often underestimate how much work a video needs by a few dozen hours. In any event, I’m looking forward to getting more out! Also something not mentioned in the video is those shaman guys will resurrect each other in a potentially endless cycle.

EDIT:
I also meant to add this episode may have my favorite ending of any Game Dungeon so far.

Videochat July 2016

Well I would have put this video off if it wasn’t already pre-planned since I’m in the middle of working on others, but here it is. The short version is more Game Dungeons are coming soon! I don’t have a 4th of July video planned this year I’m afraid, though I hope to again eventually. Expect a new Game Dungeon in a couple days, and more after that. More videos! Aaaaaah

EDIT:
The next videochat will be on August 7th at 4pm EST.

End of June update

Well I have some bad news in that I’m running late on the next Game Dungeon. I just can’t see it being finished by tomorrow. I intended to have it done this month, but it’s going to take a couple more days. I do intend to have multiple Game Dungeons for July however, and I plan on posting a short follow-up video a little later to the latest Ross Rants since some confusion + good questions were brought up that I wanted to address.

Also a reminder, the next videochat will be on July 3rd at 4pm EST at twitch.tv/rossbroadcast. You can either email me or post any additional questions / topics you have in the comments below. I can’t promise which will come out first, the videochat, or the next Game Dungeon, but they should both be pretty close to one another.

Also the next Planetside 2 play session will be on July 16th at 2pm EST on the Emerald server, also on twitch.

That’s it for now. Expect several more Game Dungeons coming both July and August!
