YouTube News

First episode of LPSS2 goes live Saturday morning at 6am, with one episode a day until it’s complete.  Let’s Play System Shock one is rolling to a close, with about one week of episodes remaining.  The first Warship Wednesday video went live yesterday, and the next Tank Tuesday episode is Commented as will be all future Tank Tuesday and Warship Wednesday episodes.

On August 1, I will post a short video discussing the future of this channel and my ideas going forward.  I haven’t yet decided what I’m going to call it, but it will basically be me talking for a few minutes  about the channel and whatever else comes to mind.


Let’s Play System Shock 2

I started editing/rendering the SS2 video I had completed, and realized I did not export the audio for 2 of the 16 episodes. Rather than trying to reproduce it and likely sound fake (I’m not that good of an actor), I deleted all 16 and started over.  I am on episode 6 now, and only recording 2-4 episodes before editing/rendering/uploading them to youtube.

The new Series will start August 1st, as I am running these episodes longer (20-30 min average). I expect I will finish SS2 in 30 episodes or less, but it takes what it takes.

I am considering a slightly different approach to the next series after SS2 so I do not get burned out on this.  I will reduce the episode releases to 2-3 per week for the primary Let’s Play game, and add one or two stand alone Let’s Plays or reviews per week.   The stand alone Let’s Plays will likely be retro games, emulated games, etc.  I have a huge list of stuff I want to do, and it seems to grow weekly. LOL

Current Let’s Play wish List in no particular order:

Ali Baba – (Atari Emu)
Gold Box Games – RPG – Probably too long/repetitive
Masters of Orion 1 & 2- 4X – long/repetitive
MULE (Atari Emu)

Let’s Play System Shock, locked and loaded

All 51 episodes of Let’s Play System Shock are on YouTube, with one being released everyday until August 7th. Let’s Play System Shock 2 is currently in the works.  I’m working on episode 16 now and will likely start that series either on August 1st or August 8th, depending on how fast I produce them.  I am trying a few new things this time around.  I’m using Audacity’s Noise Reduction filter to  cut out the fan noise.  With SS1, I was just trimming the clips down to my talking.  I am also really trying to be more verbose. I’m not certain I am where I want to be yet, but we will see how it goes.  There is always the next game…

Speaking of next game I’m not sure what it will be. I have a long list of games I would like to play or replay. I think I will play it by ear for now.
