ROSS’S GAME DUNGEON: POTTY PIGEON

Youtube link

Subtitles: English

Here’s the next game dungeon! This is the oldest game covered on the show so far, going back to 1984. I still intend to cover some more modern games, they’re just not on the top of my list. Due to its age, you may not want to watch this episode in full screen unless you sit a good distance from the screen, the resolution is low enough that it’s a bit overwhelming up close.

I’m glad I didn’t announce when this episode was going to go up, since I honestly thought I was going to have it done last weekend with another one coming up now. That totally did not happen. Unfortunately the next episode is going to be delayed further as I’m going to be gone from the 12th to the 15th on spy business. This means I won’t have replies to anything until Monday at the earliest. I hope to type up replies to many, MANY emails during that time however and send them once I get back.

Finally, if you didn’t get your fill of pigeons and classy music playing watching this video, be sure to check out my old short, Pigeon Hunter.

ROSS’S GAME DUNGEON: STRIFE

Youtube link

Subtitles: English

Well I totally screwed up my estimates as to how long this episode was going to take. I ended up needing about 250% the time I thought I would. In my defense though, this is actually the longest video I’ve made to date, clocking in a little over 30 minutes, so you may want to watch it in chunks. I tried to edit it down to just the stuff I wanted to say, but there was a lot of it. Besides Strife, I also cover some of Doom, MIDI music, FPS design and control in general, so there’s a lot in here. In any event, if you like the other Game Dungeon episodes, you should like this one too. I think the pacing on it is pretty good, despite the length.

Seeing as how my time estimates were as bad as usual, I’m giving no estimate on the next episode other than I’ll get to it as soon as I can. I plan on making a few more Game Dungeon episodes, then I’ll be returning to Freeman’s Mind. If you’re coming only for Freeman’s Mind, maybe check back in a month? Also I’m going to do everything I can to get completely caught up on email sometime this month, I’m still woefully behind on that.

More stuff coming!

EDIT: I’m wrong, CarnEvil was longer than this, but not a lot.

FREEMAN’S MIND: EPISODE 57

Youtube link

(Downloadable copy will be up later)

Subtitles: English

More Freeman’s Mind! I’m mostly happy with how this episode turned out, it’s a longer one, Freeman covers a lot of ground in this one. This one also has a particularly good jumping off point I wanted to get to. On that note, some of you will be disappointed, but I’m taking a break from FM for a little while as I want to catch up on Game Dungeon. I’ve already started on it and hope to have it out in about a week, possibly sooner. More coming after that!

EDIT: Could be a little longer than a week for the next game dungeon, it’s going to be a long one.

FREEMAN’S MIND: EPISODE 56

Youtube link

(Downloadable copy will be up later)

Subtitles: English

Freeman’s Mind continues in another backtracking-tastic episode! Between the previous episode and the earlier ones a while back that involved turning the power on, this is one of the most backtrack-heavy parts of the game. Unfortunately this means a lot of empty hallway wandering, so this episode isn’t the most exciting, though I think the bottom portion is good. There was a bit of a delay on this episode for many reasons not related to FM, but I’m through most of it now and will be working on the next episode soon. I plan to have 1-2 FM episodes after this, then take a break to have a small Game Dungeon spree. After that, I guess the world ends, not sure.

New Interview: The Mute Button

I’ve been pretty busy lately and I’m working to have a new video out as soon as I can, but in the meantime, there’s a new discussion I was invited to for the podcast “The Mute Button” however they may be changing their name soon as they’re not the only podcast with that name.

LINK TO PODCAST

The podcast mostly focused on machinima and movies based on videogames. I maybe should have said more than I did, but I said most of things I wanted to and shamelessly plugged Gorilla Gong more than a bit.

Anyway, I hope to have the next FM episode out in a few days, with a bunch more videos coming after that.
