New Dead Games News episode! I realize only a minority of fans watch this, but this is the one gaming issue I just can’t ignore, so I’m trying to keep the torch lit on this until I can take some actual action against it. This episode is in the new format, where I only cover a couple topics, but go much more into depth on them. There’s currently been multiple events going on that don’t seem very significant now, but I think are a sign of things to come. I’m noticing that I’m taking a “future history” approach on these videos. Life is complicated when you’re a time traveler.

Next video should be Game Dungeon, I think it’s the sort of game that regular viewers expect from that show.

Due to popular demand, I’m releasing a couple more clips related to the last Game Dungeon episode. The first is for an extra-high quality copy (the same version I uploaded to Youtube) of the episode. Due to this episode having lots of fast motion and high details, it compressed very poorly compared to pretty much every other episode. To put it in perspective, I used even higher quality compression settings than this on A New Beginning, and that was 1/20th the size this one was. So for people who are frustrated by the compression, here’s a downloadable version that has minimal artifacting:

Ross’s Game Dungeon: The Crew (x264 9.44GB MKV)

This is meant for personal viewing only. Please do not upload copies of this to Youtube or other streaming networks. However, as with all my videos, Fair Use purposes (reviews, parodies, derivative works, etc.) are of course fine.

The other request I received was for the green screen footage of my driving segment in the video. These were not made under ideal conditions. I had time pressure and had to record this in my currently evacuated room. You’ll see some shadowing that isn’t helpful, but people can monkey with it if they want. I’ve included 3 takes of the shot.

Unlike the Game Dungeon episode itself, you can use this clip for anything you want, no restrictions. I’m not necessarily saying you SHOULD, but I don’t have a problem with it being used for whatever.

Here is the next Game Dungeon after a long hiatus! This turned into one of the more ambitious episodes I’ve done. I’m generally happy with how it came out, in fact, this one might be my favorite “non-weird game” episode. I think in the future I may have to scale down Game Dungeon a little bit one way or another, just so there’s more time for the movie. The one thing I don’t want to sacrifice is the writing, however, so that should remain consistent regardless. Writing is often the easiest part of making these videos actually.

I cut some more material that was going to be in here, some of which I may use in a follow-up episode later on. Also, while I’m not in a situation to have play sessions with fans currently, at some point in the future, I’d be interested in trying a group road trip with fans in The Crew on PC. I figure at least some people have it since I announced when it was free back in 2016 on twitter. I can’t even imagine how the game would handle 100 or so people all in the same place. It could be it would just glitch out, but it would be interesting to try out.

Anything can happen the way things are at the moment, but assuming things don’t change, I hope to have more videos this month.

Here’s my poorly timed videochat! My living situation is still unstable, but I have breathable air and can work on my computer. The audio quality was poorer this time due to me misplacing my usual mic for the chats. New Game Dungeon should be coming in a few hours!

Hey everyone,

things still aren’t back to normal, but there’s a big Game Dungeon coming soon and I think my situation might be stable enough to resume the videochats for the time being. So if nothing goes wrong, the next one will be on 12PM Noon EST on July 7th at twitch.tv/rossbroadcast. I’ll have a few minor announcements and answer questions afterwards. Audio is likely to be more echoey this time.
