How does "Ross's Game Dungeon" get made?

I know lots of weird, obscure and old games nobody's heard of and so I find Ross's Game Dungeon really inspiring, especially the really strange episodes like Super Cult Tycoon, Bozo's Night Out, Bip Bop II and Eternam. I am thinking of trying to make my own videos in a similar style and was wondering: what is the process?


I would assume it involves three steps before you edit:


1. Capturing game footage


2. Writing the script


3. Recording the voiceover


The question is, what order do these three activities go in? Do you write the script, then get game footage, then record? Or do you write and record first, then get game footage after?

Obviously, I'm not Ross, but James Rolfe made a video a few years ago about his process for making videos, and his method seems to be VERY efficient for pumping out similar content to GD.


You'll likely need to update his methods, such as using software-level dvr-style recording (like plays.tv or nvidia shadowplay) instead of using vhs tapes.
