Update: Vry Versus Video Games
So despite a fairly warm reception, some may have noticed that I haven’t uploaded any new lets plays. And while some of that has to do with the holidays and other real world things, mostly it’s just my own stupidity. There have been many recording sessions in the past few months, with absolutely nothing to show for it. Either because of technical problems or my own incompetence I end up with an hour or two of recorded audio but no video. Other times I’ve had games continually crashing on me at random times. So it’s not that I haven’t been working on them, and more that the work has been problematic at best.
That being said, I still want to keep recording and putting up more Let’s Play Vry Versus Video Games videos on YouTube. In fact I’ve recently just finished another near 2 hour session that is sitting on my hard drive awaiting editing. I really just wanted to give those of you who were enjoying my silly exploits a heads up that it is not an abandoned project by any means and it’s just been a series of mishaps that have delayed it this much.
For those who aren’t sure what I’m actually talking about, I’ve been recording, editing and uploading Let’s Plays of various games under the title of Vry Versus Video Games on YouTube (You can find my channel here.) I’ve currently been working on 3 different series, changing things up every now and then to keep it fresh for at least me if not you folks as well:
– Shadowrun Returns: Where you get a taste of my strange range of silly voices as I read the dialogue for the characters and play through the game for the first time.
– BioShock: One of my favorite games. I’ve started doing kind of just a wacky commentary that has devolved into a weird metaphorical revolution as the ‘Luigis’ (Green light wearing hacked machines) are rising up against the ‘Marios’ (Unhacked hostile machines). A viewer poll decided to NOT kill the little sisters, so we’ve been saving the creepy little girls.
– The Sims 4: Shakespeare Monkey Challenge: The newest series currently being edited takes the concept of ‘putting monkeys in a room with a typewriter will produce Shakespeare’ to a new level. We shove 8 sims (7 of which are based on famous authors) in a house and force them to write in an attempt to make money. The original goal was 1 million simoleans in 1 year, but considering how time moves in the Sims world, we might be altering that goal and trimming it back to avoid having several hundred videos.
Anyway, I just wanted to offer an explanation on the status of these projects and to introduce the videos to new readers (thank you for visiting by the way! Always nice to have new folks stop in.) Hopefully, the drought will be lifted soon.
