Illness

I'm sick, and it sucks, I've been sick for the past few days and it's getting better, but slowly. I took a few days off work, and even though I'm not completely better yet I'm going now, and it makes me feel like garbage.

Starting posting again

So I stopped this for the longest time, so i guess I'll just start it again, since I enjoyed doing it while I was doing it every day, just put some thoughts down in writing. I'd say it helps me organize my thoughts, and my mind. So it's a win-win.

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Doing stuff

So I'm finally going to start making more videos and stuff. I'm also having trouble uploading from school, and It's not going any faster then at home, so I'll have to leave an upload running overnight or when I'm at school or work and pray that it works on it's own.

Monday, March 28, 2011

Trying to Upload

I really am trying, it's just not working out for me right now... hopefully by the time I go do something then come home I'll have a video up.

Mirror's Edge

So I've started a playthrough of Mirror's Edge. This is a little postponed because I've had to study for my last midterm exam which is tomorrow. It's ridiculous how that works too, a midterm 2 weeks before the start of finals, who plans this garbage?

Black Ops

I just want to say that I've given up on Treyarc's ability to provide a good multiplayer experience. I've heard the latest update helps out the lag issue, although I feel as though nothing has changed. Same garbage as before, hit boxes that aren't in the sprites, causing aim assist to screw me over time and time again, even when I host the match. Regardless of the competition, the next game in the Call of Duty franchise will still have ridiculously good sales, which makes me think; Why bother with messing around with unreliable Peer-to-Peer net code? I'd also like to say that as far as I'm concerned, the connection bars mean less to me then the dirt on the floor. One last complaint, Treyarc tried to defend themselves from scrutiny by Theater Mode by saying it's a novelty, and it doesn't represent what really happened. I say this is a giant load of trash, if it wasn't accurate, then they shouldn't have included it, and maybe spent more time fixing their terrible hit detection. I'll wrap up by saying competitive servers mean a) easier coding, b) easier updates, c) less reliance on the users, d) better hit detection, e) reliable aim assist, f) less having to hear about the garbage that is online multiplayer, so dish out the extra cash so people will stop complaining about how bad your multiplayer experience is.

Yet again, looking for a game.

So now that I'm pretty much completely done with Homefront, I want to playthrough another game. I'm just not sure which one. I'm open to suggestions though.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

Okay I lied.

So I definitely lied about taking a break, I decided to do a News Pickup Guide for Homefront. It'll all be up today, so all you achievement whores can get those 61 collectibles. The only thing left I'd like to do is state which checkpoint is the best for every collectible, so I think I'll look over that when I get home this afternoon.

Monday, March 14, 2011

Burn out

Alright, so since I just plowed through Homefront, there will be no videos today, or tomorrow, unless I decide to actually do a real review of it. I just played way too much to get the videos up as quick as possible. It was fun though!

Sunday, March 13, 2011

As much as I can

So today I'm going to upload as many Homefront videos as I can, and it's keeping me busy because I'll be rendering one while uploading another. It's about as efficient as it can be. Also, for anyone wondering about MvC3, I have one to put up, so I'll throw it up in between some Homefront.

Saturday, March 12, 2011

More Homefront

So I'm obviously going to put up more Homefront, and I actually finished the campaign last night, all that's left is editing and uploading. There's 21 in total, and the last one is only 5 minutes long, as well as one in the middle. By the end I had gotten a hang of the controls, and how I needed to play to not die all the time.

Friday, March 11, 2011

Homefront

Looks like it is Homefront. Just got the first video up about an hour ago, second one uploading, third is rendering.

Edit:
Okay, 4 up today, I think that's plenty for now, more to be up tomorrow!

Thursday, March 10, 2011

Next Game

So I think the next game I'm going to play is Homefront. It looks interesting, and I'd like to see how fluid the controls are, especially compared to Black Ops. Speaking of Black Ops, here's a idea: have 2 sensitivities, one for running around, and the other for Aiming Down Sights. Sometimes I feel as though I can't turn around fast enough when I have it lower to improve my aim, and other times I can't aim properly when it's too high. Anyways, that's my rant for the day. Finished Viewtiful Joe's missions earlier, working on Super-Skrull. They definitely seems easier then Joe's, which is very much appreciated.

Lots of MvC3

So I've been mashing out as many missions as I possibly can, and I'm now officially 50% done. Also, I've just hit the milestone of 100 videos. Still looking for a game (that's not MvC3) to do a playthrough of.

Sunday, March 6, 2011

Regular stuff

I finally got my job transfer, so I'll be living a lot closer to work, which means less time for transportation, and more time for videos, yay! Speaking of which, I just passed the 1/3 mark of the MvC3 missions, only 24 more to go, and I'm pretty sure there's going to be DLC characters too. But seriously, if anyone reading this thinks I should play through a game, let me know, I'll take it under serious consideration.

Friday, March 4, 2011

More Vids

So I realized I  haven't put up any new vids, or updated this in a few days, so expect something within the next 24 hours. I'm getting distracted with some gaming I'm doing just for fun. So I'll tone that down a little to get more videos up.

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

Midterm Exams

So I have a midterm today, otherwise I'd be putting up an MvC3 video, but instead of gaming I'm going to have to do some last minute studying, and by that I mean cramming. Doing that for Calculus is not a good idea by the way, but it all seems to be pretty straightforward, and the textbook surprisingly helps a lot with the course, so I'll make a little study sheet and do a few examples, so I should be good to go in an hour or two of review.

Monday, February 28, 2011

Uploading Stacking.

Today I will be uploading the last 2 part of Stacking. Unfortunately it won't be for another few hours, as I have an exam. I'm so excited about it too. It'll be a blast. Also, look forward to more MvC3 coming up withing the next day or two.

Friday, February 25, 2011

Laziness

So, there should be more videos up, but I'm lazy. Since I don't have class I've been playing a lot of Black Ops, just because I can, and since I'm not going to the school on a regular basis, that means I'm not uploading between/after classes, and that means I'm not uploading much at all because my home internet isn't the best. Regardless, I still have the last 3 parts of Stacking on my computer, just need to edit the last one and then I can scratch that off the list.

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Cancels

On a few of my MvC3 videos I had people asking what a "cancel" was, so I made a quick video. It's a very simple explanation, but it gets the job done. If you play fighting games you'll know pretty much anything I said, but if you haven't it'll familiarize you with some of the terminology used. Stacking part 7 will be put up tomorrow, and hopefully I can get Hulk's missions done tonight. I find him very difficult to use. He's definitely not nimble enough for my play style.

Monday, February 21, 2011

15 minutes?

So I'm uploading a video right now and I just got the message stating that I can upload videos over 15 minutes, which is pretty cool, but i'd have to say it's a bit unnecessary I think 10 minutes is pretty longs, so generally I'll try to keep them under that. Anyways, 2 videos today, 1 MvC, 1 Stacking. As I said before, I'm looking for a request for another playthrough to do, so I'm open to any suggestions.

Sunday, February 20, 2011

Reading week

So I have the next week off of school, so I'm going to try to get as much MvC3 done as possible. I just finished recording my Stacking playthrough so expect those videos within the next few days as well. Still looking for my next playthrough, but if no one requests anything I have one in mind.

Friday, February 18, 2011

New playthrough?

So I'm looking for suggestions for a new playthrough to do, just because that's what I do. Stacking is quite short and it's probably going to end around 8 parts from what I can tell. Also, I don't think I'll be putting up a video today. For the same reason as always, I have to work at my dead end job that won't give me a transfer to a store that's 5 minutes from where I'm currently living. What a bunch of pricks.

Thursday, February 17, 2011

So I'm uploading Stacking part 4 right now, and unfortunately it's in two parts. I was hoping I would have to do that but I even edited some things out of it, and it still hit 20 minutes, and I'm pretty sure part 5 will be the same way, my apologies, but since the Stacking world isn't linear, some of the puzzles can be tricky to solve. I also just finished Wesker's missions, so they will be up as well.

Stacking.

So I have some episodes recorded, the problem is a lot of the time i'm trying to figure out what to do, so i'm going to edit all that garbage out. Also, I didn't upload any videos yesterday, because I had to go to work, which still sucks, as usual.

Monday, February 14, 2011

Taskmaster

So I'm almost done Taskmasters missions, but I'd like to rant a little bit. So as far as I had searched, before I had posted Wolverine's missions (the first one I posted), no one had posted an other missions. So I thought it would be a good idea to start it up and get some views for being the first one to post them. Unfortunately, the day after I had posted Dante's, someone else who is more well known for fighting games (i'm sure you can figure it out if you try) posted none other then Wolverine's and Dante's missions (i know this because I like his stuff and am a subscriber), and now have something like 20x the views as mine, probably based on the fact that he has 100x as many subs, and it's kind of aggravating to think that I tried my best to do something first and be noticed, just to be overrun by someone who may have on purpose (or possibly coincidentally but I'm in doubt of that) put up those 2 videos first so he could get the views. Either way, he'll probably have the rest of them up by the end of the day, while I haven't even attempted them yet. Although we do make some different decisions in these combos (corner vs midscreen), his will obviously always be the more popular of the videos. Anyways, i appreciate the support, and will still be making the videos, but since the "competition" will already hold the top spot, I'm not going to do them as hardcore as I had tried to the past few days.
Anyways, I have a few Stacking videos to put up today. It's getting a little harder to find some of the unique characters to solve the puzzles, but I think it's ridiculously fun.
Thanks for watching my videos, and reading my rant. And remember, have a great day. ;-)

Trish, Stacking, and an unlockable

So #9 was definitely my favourite from Trish, just because it uses both your partners in genius ways and it looks soooo cool. I unlocked some characters last night so I think I'm going to do their missions next, and around the time that I'll be doing that I'm going to make some progress on Stacking, like I said I would yesterday, for anyone who wants to see that.

Saturday, February 12, 2011

Deadpool & Felicia

I put up Deadpool's missions today and Felicia's is rendering as I am writing this. Praying for fast internet because I need to leave for work in 10 minutes, and I want to get hers up. I put Stacking on hold for the day, but tomorrow evening I've got nothing to do, so I'll put a dent in it. I did Deadpool because the wonderful guys at Peaceful Jay's live stream requested it when I asked what they wanted to see. Anyone else got votes for who to do next?

Friday, February 11, 2011

Wolverine & Dante!

So far I've gotten Wolverine's and Dante's missions from Marvel vs Capcom 3 up and running. I really don't want to go in order of the characters, so if you'd like to leave a comment with your favourite character I'll tally them up before I start making my next video (later today) and see who I'll be showing! Also, if I get the time, I want to put up another Stacking video. I tried to record one last night, but I forgot to plug in my microphone and ended up recording off my laptops built in mic, and it's terrible.

Thursday, February 10, 2011

New Stuff!

So if all goes well, I'll have the Undead Nightmare playthrough up and another playthrough started today. Again, it'll depends on school and time restrictions. I put up a Marvel vs Capcom 3 video yesterday, hopefully I'll be able to work on some more of those tonight, but I do have an assignment to do and a mid-term to study for. Work is putting a dent in my plans as usual, but I'm trying not to let it get me down. Hopefully before I leave today I'll be able to put up the first part of my next playthrough, "Stacking". It was just released yesterday on the XBLA, so I thought I'd give it a shot.

Tuesday, February 8, 2011

Not as much as yesterday

So unfortunately I'm not going to be able to upload all that much today. Looks like the internet isn't going as fast as I want it to go, and I need to go to work today. Hopefully 2 up today, and probably start a new game by tomorrow, but it all depends on how much homework I have. Either way I have some games that I would like to record in the near future.

Monday, February 7, 2011

Triple Digit?

I just passed 100 subscribers yesterday, and I'd like to say thanks you to everyone who subscribed to my channel, I really appreciate it.
Onto business. Undead Nightmare is complete! Even though I haven't even uploaded any yet, it's all recorded and I only need to edit the last one, which I'll probably do while the others are uploading. 12 in total, and I'll try to get as many as possible up today, and start working on my next playthrough.

Wednesday, February 2, 2011

Weather and School

So I had to go to school today, which is very depressing because it was -11 degrees Celsius, -19 with wind chill, and there was a snow storm last night, so I walked to school in a 5cm of snow. They should have canceled lectures. Roads looked like garbage, and barely any sidewalks had been cleared by 8:30. Actually, some of the paths on campus weren't even cleared. Needless to say, it was a long cold walk here. Also, the "board" of greedy rich idiots who run the school are raising tuition between 3 and 6 percent depending on the enrolled program. The University of Waterloo's tuition is among the high end anyways, raising it more is just asinine, especially because their enrollment has also increased, meaning more students in debt and wealthier people at the top of the chain.

Also, I'll be uploading the rest of the Red Dead Redemption Playthrough today!

Tuesday, February 1, 2011

Rendered

So unfortunately not all the videos will be up by the end of today, there's 8 videos in total, and I will probably only be able to get 2 or 3 up today, but Wednesdays yield more free time, which means I'll be able to upload more videos, and since I just finished editing the rest of them they are prepared to be uploaded.

Monday, January 31, 2011

Playthrough Complete!

So I finished recording the Red Dead Redemption playthrough, so expect a bunch of videos today and tomorrow. Still have some editing to do on a few of them so it'll be good if I can get that done today, and have them ready for tomorrow (or possibly later today). Undead Nightmare next, followed by some random playthrough that has yet to be determined, but should probably be soon.
Also, I'll say thanks to frozenwifi for my sleek looking icon. It looks way cooler then the Xbox icon I had before so thank a bunch!

360 Gaming Clan

Looks like I'll be doing some recording for the 360 Gaming Clan based out of the UK. You can check out their channel here:
http://www.youtube.com/user/The3GClan
As usual there is a Red Dead Redemption video, and I finally got around to editing some Black Ops stuff I've had for like 2 weeks so there will be a short gameplay up as well.

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Uploading

Well it seems as though my uploading is going well today, and I don't have to work, which mean little to no stress. Depending on how well my uploads are going (it's looking good right now), there may be 2 videos today. I am a little bit ahead on recording, and therefore a little behind on editing, so if it's a little sloppy forgive me, as I try to be efficient. Major change from yesterday when I was raging hardcore at the internet and YouTube. Everything just seems to work better when I don't have to go to work. So yeah, work sucks.

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Why does the internet suck...

As I sit here typing this I am uploading a video to YouTube. This is the second time I'm uploading this video because the first time it stopped, over half an hour into the upload, at 88%. Firstly, YouTube definitely needs to show your upload speed, so if for some reason it goes to 0, you can try to fix the problem, especially for big videos uploaded using the Advanced Video Upload feature, which "allows" resumable uploads even though I've had videos stop and never resume. There needs to be a refresh feature, or possibly a separate applet for uploading large files to YouTube. It's great they use Java, but that means nothing if it's still in the browser. Uploading a video to YouTube should be no different then uploading anything else. It needs to give an estimated time in minutes:seconds and shows the speed of the upload, and needs the extra option to "resume later". It's just data, it's possible, it can't be hard to do.  Give us a way to upload that will consistently work, regardless of internet stability, or the need to disconnect. It really can't be that damn hard.

Monday, January 24, 2011

Lameness

So I actually thought I'd be able to do lots of uploading today, but unfortunately my girlfriend and I are going to meet another couple for dinner later, which means I won't be able to upload everything I planned on. Lots of Red Dead videos on the horizon. I decided that it was better to go with 1 mission per video. Less editing, shorter upload times, less shenanigans in general.

Friday, January 21, 2011

Busy Busy Busy

So, I've been pretty busy the past few days with family, school and work. Since I upload all my videos from school, I haven't been able to upload as many recently because I need to leave campus earlier to go to work. I also do most of my recording/editing after work, which means I'm ridiculously tired sometimes because I have to wake up at 7:30 every morning to get ready for class. Either way, I'm making it work (and still have time to see my girlfriend). What will really help out is my pending work transfer. Since I work at a popular chain of grocery stores, I can transfer to a store that I live closer to, so I can reduce my travel time drastically. Hopefully this happens soon, because I don't know how much longer I can make my commute effectively to work.

Disc: Resurfaced

Today, there will be Red Dead Redemption videos! My disc looks a lot better then before, and plays great now. Earlier this month it didn't let me install the game to my USB stick, so hopefully now it'll work and run even smoother. Two videos today. More for the rest of the week. I'll try to get another guest involved. Speaking of which, I would like to know if anyone knows of a free program that records Skype conversations, because then I could probably get more guests.
Edit: Looks like I'm not going to get 2 vids up today.. internet = slow.

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Videos

Apparently I can't play Red Dead Redemption right now, because it's glitching out... Makes me sad. Looks like I'll have to resurface the disc. So that playthrough is on hold for the time being, but hopefully not for too long. On another note, I put up another Black Ops video courtesy of xDirtyThirty. Music in it is a little weird, but I want to completely avoid copyright issues, so I work with what I can get for free.

Sunday, January 16, 2011

First Montage

Budweiser x360a's footage made for a 3 minute "montage". Tomahawk kills, a double headshot and an excellent sharpshooter start. Quality wasn't as good as I thought it would be, but I'm pretty sure I fixed the problem for next time, and I should have noticed it before I uploaded it anyways.
Today I become a Godfather. I'm going to church at noon to participate in my cousins baptism and be formally given the title.

Friday, January 14, 2011

Black Ops

So I've found the first person who wants some Black Ops videos done. He brought up a good point though, of whether or not it would be free. This will be free for anyone who cares to approach me about it for the time being. The only thing that could possibly change is if there are 100 people who want videos done.
YouTube aside, I'm totally loving my calculus course, which is the weirdest thing I could possibly ever say. Great teacher, small class, I don't think I could ask for any more then that.

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Red Dead Redemption

As anyone who's looking at this probably came across it through my YouTube channel, you'll know I'm doing a Red Dead Redemption playthrough. The past 2 videos have had guests, so this next one might be a little lonely. I'd also like to say that if anyone plays Black Ops, and has some clips they'd like recorded I'd be happy to take a look at it, record it and put it on my channel, either with commentary that you do, or that I do, or no commentary at all. I'd like to start another playthrough, just so it's not all Red Dead, for those who like other games, so if there are any suggestions let me know.

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

First Post

So I decided to create a blog just for fun. For those of you who don't know, I make Youtube videos of Xbox360 gameplay. I don't know how often I'll be posting on here, school and work take up a lot of time, but I'm sure I can make some time to put up some posts. Anyways, thanks for checking this out!
