Here’s the latest chat with fans. I’m still working to move out of here, but that likely won’t happen until the end of the month. Besides the Game Dungeon episode I’m finishing up, there won’t be much in the way of videos this month since I’m going to focus mostly on the movie. Also, it’s possible the website may go down at some point this month (in fact, I hope it does so it can be updated), to use the new codebase. All it means is things will be locked down temporarily, we shouldn’t lose any data. I’ll have more details on that later.
Things STILL not stabilized for me yet, but I should be available for the next videochat with fans. Ask questions or topics to discuss here for the next videochat with fans on 6pm UTC on August 5th at twitch.tv/rossbroadcast. There will hopefully be a new Game Dungeon before the chat, but it’s too close to call at the moment. I still haven’t located my mic I normally use for the chats, but hopefully I’ll find it in time so the audio quality will be better.

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:
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.
