Your retro youtube videos

Recommended Posts

Hopefully this will be allowed here. I'm guessing that I'm not the only one here who makes the odd video featuring retro games?

Anyway, here is my latest:

Consider yourselves subbed. :)

I removed everything from my old channel because I didn't like the efforts to merge my Youtube account with my Gmail/Google account, but I later set up a new channel that can exist independently from my Google stuff. My new channel isn't specifically about retrogaming - it has lyrics written to complement game tunes, game music mashed up with commercial music, and random one-off videos - but I did make a playthrough of Super Mario Land 2 late last year just to highlight how short the thing is. I hadn't played the game in ages but was still able to reach Wario's Castle in about 40 minutes (I did skip the secret exits though :P ) Sadly I went a bit nuts with the audio compression on this run, but I'll probably redo it with some better software sometime.

Some interesting videos posted on here. First time I've seen one of yours Swainy. Watched the Renegade one which I don't think I know much about anyway, the Rolling Thunder vid, that of which I used to play on the ST possibly even before I owned one. It did take me back when I saw it, way way back. Oh and I saw the interesting Metal Man or what ever it's called like Robocop vs Terminator.

I had no idea that Renegade on the Amiga was so bad.

My nephew and I started a channel a few months back, thought I'd introduce him to some classic games via some modern collections like Game Room, Midway Arcade Classics and some old games on Live Arcade. That Capcom collection is next on the agenda, as well as things like Gunstar Heroes, the Sonic games, I dunno, Golden Axe?

Rampage is his favourite old game so far. Good choice, if you ask me.

Here's the channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/randomfurytv

Your vids are superb Swainy - ticking all my boxes (Just bought Galaxy Invaders after watching one). Keep it up.

Also, audition for EastEnders at the next opportunity.

Ha, cheers mate. I'll keep the videos coming, no promises on the Eastenders audition though :)

This week in Eastenders : a mix up with a missing step down converter leads Phil to question who blew up his ntsc dreamcast while swainy tells Dot that she really should stick with her old 128 toast rack spectrum rather than get a +2

I've been wanting to do a video series for a while, so these past few weeks, me and a friend got together to do something called Retro Gaming Night. Each night we play a classic game, tell you all about it and show you why you should play it. We try to add in little secrets and facts where possible so this is more informative than a lets play. Got a new one coming out every night for a whole month and then afterwards probably one a week, so hopefully something worth subscribing to. First episodes are up now.

Super Mario 64



Resident Evil Remake

Finally gained access to a decent capture card and PC that do 1080p, planning on doing videos for all the major consoles.

Here's a feature test videos we've done just playing around with various formats and compression at the moment for 1080p & 720p.

Dreamcast - Dynamite Cop recorded via VGA to a upscaller.

PlayStation - Point Blank recorded via PS3 at 720p

This was a open broadcast test recorded at 1080p Kolibri on 32X.

Which is also the next game I'll be reviewing for the blog.

Just wanted to comment on your Mario 64 video to say that I thought it was really good. I've subscribed and will be watching the other other RGN videos asap so keep them coming!

Cheers...

This making YouTube movies isn't as easy as it looks, I mean technically it's at a base level fraps/emulator/moviemaker ( I'm really lazy) but beyond that it's hard to do something that stands out. Let's plays and talking over gameplay has been done, review wise it's hard not to be influenced by channels you already watched, coming off like a second hand Ashens or Mentski via Gamesack...

As a result my videos ( which I've only linked to friends on Facebook) come out as a meandering gibberish to the camera with some lazy movie quotes and lame jokes that you can't hear because I've forgotten that I'm talking to a microphone rather than someone sitting beside me. I guess it's a learning curve and it can only improve in time...

I'll be the first to admit I find it hard talking whilst playing. I'm using the real hardware for all of my videos too, which means recording the footage onto a DVD recorder and recording the sound with my laptop and syncing it all up. It's a lot of work but I enjoy doing it, although the number of views on this latest batch of videos has been low so maybe I'm doing it all wrong? It's hard to get noticed on YouTube, even though our podcast is really popular.

I avoid VO entirely for these reasons. Talking whilst playing can be awkward as I tend to go quiet when I need to actually play well :P and recording a VO on top of pre-recorded footage needs good timing/editing to make it all sound natural and fluid. Not to mention the fact that my microphone is garbage and I hate my own voice. :D

I've got some cheap editing tools and I've often been tempted to do some proper captioning/titling and whatnot as a substitute for VO but I'd rather look at other software before going there...
