Here’s the much-delayed next Game Dungeon! As you’ll hear in the video, this is my first attempt of having a collaborative edit of any video. Unlike past episodes, I had a substantial amount of help in the recording and editing process. As for whether it saved time, a lot of time was lost in the transition process (hence the long delay between this episode and the last one), but that should be temporary. The game recording absolutely saved me a lot of time, and the editing did in some areas, not in others. I was still quite heavily involved in the final editing process. I think the verdict is still out as to whether additional editors will save time in the long run, but it’s also a little premature to judge since there were a lot of technical complications.
Anyway, expect another episode pretty soon as the Christmas one is coming up, hopefully before Christmas this time!
Updates on everything that’s going on. Expect at least two Game Dungeons this month. I’ll also be having a birthday streaming session where I try to beat Supreme Commander on hard all in one setting. All important dates and links are in the Youtube description.
Just a quick update, I’ve finally set up a twitter channel at twitter.com/accursedfarms. I was able to get the Accursed Farms name due to a fan squatting it since 2009. I don’t have many plans for this, and still don’t completely understand all the dynamics with Twitter. Frankly, I think spending a lot of time on twitter would make me feel like I’m wasting my life. However, it is useful for quick announcements, like letting people know when there’s a new videochat, play session, a short status update, that sort of thing. So that will be a good place to check if you just want condensed versions of anything new that’s happening with regards to the videos or events, but I don’t plan to use it for much else.
This is a post as a reminder of submitting questions if you want me to try and answer them for the December videochat. I’m trying something new this time, where it’s been suggested to me that there should be a system where people can vote questions up or down so I answer what people want to hear the most. I don’t have a system set up to do that, but reddit does. I contacted the person running the Accursed Farms channel on reddit and he set up a thread where you can post questions to be voted on HERE. I’ll try to incorporate other questions already submitted, but feel free to re-post them on reddit to be voted on.
I would have done this sooner, but I didn’t want to make people sign up for yet another service, but this seems to be the most convenient way to do this sort of thing at this time. I actually have no involvement with the Accursed Farms reddit section, other than I said a while back I was cool with somebody running it if they wanted to.
In other news, there’s unfortunately not going to be a new video this month, however I’m currently working on a new production method where this could possibly be the last month that happens. Work is already underway on multiple more videos.
This is a last-minute notice, but I’ve discovered I can no longer launch Planetside 2! This means I can’t join up with fans. So as a quick ditch effort, I’ll be playing Zombie Panic: Source instead. Go ahead and download it now (it should be free) and I’ll have more info on what’s going on soon if you want to join. Stream will be on twitch.tv/rossbroadcast.
If you wish to join, connect to any of the following servers in-game:
Accursed Farms Main Server (18.104.22.168:27035)
Accursed Farms Overflow Server #1 (22.214.171.124:27036)
Accursed Farms Overflow Server #2 (126.96.36.199:27037)
I will be playing on the main server, but you can still play with other fans on the overflow servers (it might be best for people to rotate some on the main one anyway). My apologies for everything being so last minute!
