ROSS RANTS: 3D

Subtitles: English

Hear the truth about 3D! I’ve had very mixed feelings about 3D stuff for a long time now and haven’t heard any sharing my views, most people seem polarized on it one way or the other; so I wanted to set the record straight as I see it. This may become part of a larger “Ross Rants” series where I pick topics that I really have a lot to say about (and are worth talking about) and go at it. People are welcome to suggest topics they’d like to hear me tear apart as well.

This video is coming about a week later than I intended it to since just about everything that could have gone wrong, did. I had to redo the entire recording session, I learned horrible secrets about my camcorder, and getting games from 15 years ago to run ended up being a lengthy challenge in some cases. If I do continue this series, I doubt I’ll have as many visual aides as are in this video, but I do hope to improve the video quality in the future. As it stands, I look more like a Star Wars hologram than anything.

ROSS’S GAME DUNGEON: BATTLEFORGE

Youtube

Subtitles: English

Here’s a new episode that’s been a while in the making! I actually started on this as soon as I finished the last episode, so I’m behind on seeing what all the responses to that one were. I was working pretty hard to get this episode up today for reasons you’ll find out. This is easily my most “dramatic” episode so far, but it’s not a trend I plan on continuing. This episode actually contains more that I edited out of it than any other episode since while writing and recording, I noticed the tone of it kept veering in a direction I didn’t want, but I’m pretty happy with how it finally turned out. In any event, I’m sure this one will spark some interesting discussion!

Expect another experimental video later this month with two more in the works (but no set release dates).

EDIT:
I may be late on the other video I was planning for this month, but it’s not far behind.

Interview: Valve News Network

I meant to have this out a few days ago, but it went up the same day as the last video. This is a recent video interview I had with the Youtube channel Valve News Network. The guy running it (Tyler McVicker) isn’t actually a representative of Valve, but he covers a lot of news related to it. He asked me an array of questions that aren’t typically covered in others, including many from fans of his channel. I haven’t had a chance to look at what it was edited down to since I’ve been very busy on the next video, but feel free to check it out:

Here’s the first followup episode to Ross’s Game Dungeon! I knew this would take a lot of work, and it did. This definitely is towards the top in the amount of editing time involved, but I’m relatively happy with how it came out and it hopefully puts a lot of burning questions and comments to rest.

I was originally hoping to get this episode out a week ago, since it kind of leads into a major one coming up soon. You can expect the next Game Dungeon in less than a week assuming nothing catastrophic happens. After that I’ll be trying to get some new experimental videos out for a while and hopefully get into enough of a groove to get more work done on the movie.

Short June Update

This is another “I’m still doing things” update since I know it’s been a little while since the last video. I’m simultaneously working on three different videos. One is another experimental one (which will probably be next), the others are Game Dungeon episodes. The next Game Dungeon will be the first follow-up episode, then I have another one planned for mid-July that’s been a long time in the making.

Besides that I’m hoping to get two more experimental shows off the ground, one of which will almost certainly be next month. Being busy with the videos is most of what I’m up to nowadays, you can pretty much assume that whenever there are long gaps of silence from me.

EDIT:
Due to some complications, the experimental video has been postponed and the next two videos will be Game Dungeon episodes. You can expect at least 3 videos for July.
