Bloggity Blog Thing: Revising Old Games and Making Videos
I have a feeling two-thousand and thirteen is going to be an eventful year! I have college (ok.... community college), a girlfriend, work, and video games all fighting for my time. On top of all of that, I also want to make youtube videos again for some reason, so I guess I can say goodbye to my hard drive space. Well anyway, my girlfriend and I are buying plane tickets, and booking rooms for our big trip to Europe this summer so that means I got to stop spending so much money on games. I wonder if there is any way I can turn off the steam store so I don't have to look at their delicious sales. If there is, give me a holler!
What I am trying to say in some roundabout way is its time to go through parts of my gaming backlog.... and record it... and post it to youtube. A few months ago I made some youtube videos, and created a new channel that wasn’t my personal one. This is did not last long though, and three weeks later I had stopped making videos. I tried playing some Dishonored, FTL, and Minecraft, but I quit trying after seeing the views on my videos plummet. Hey but now I am back, and I'm going to give it another shot. I decided to look through my steam library to find a game that I had never played, and was also short. Limbo popped out and said, “Hello”!
I quickly installed Limbo, booted up fraps, and recorded three videos. I am writing this as they are being encoded. My plan is to keep uploading Limbo videos until I have beat it, and then start recording videos on Dark Souls. I went crazy during some steam sales; since this was my first year having a job, and have created a large library of games I have never played. I look forward to seeing how this will all go!
If anyone reading this wants to see my first videos I will post my youtube channel link right here:
I am going to post this blog before my new videos are up, but the first Limbo video should be on my channel in an hour or two. Also if this is infringing on some youtube rule on giantbomb, just tell me and I will take this blog down.
I know there are a lot of threads asking people to help in building a computer, so I feel bad asking for the help. But that is a lot of money to spend and I want to make sure the parts I picked out will work together. The parts I am looking at are:
I am surprised at how low my vitality is compared to most of you. I have almost finished act 1 on nightmare with my demon hunter, and I only have 2919. From what I'm hearing, I should be getting my ass kicked but I have only died once. From now on I will invest more into vitality and see if it has an effect on how I play my character.
As I sit next to the bonfire close to Sens Fortress, I still find myself puzzled by the events that just occurred. I was making my way up to ring the first bell at the top of the church when I came across a humanoid bathed in red fog. Because of experiences in my past lives I knew that I was about to face my death. I stood ready to block his first blow, but instead he just bowed.
“Well at least I would die to a gentleman”, I thought so I decided to bow as well.
I fired a soul arrow at him and expected him to strike at me in return. Once again to my surprise he bowed and dropped a bag on the ground. I hesitantly walked toward the bag and picked it up. In it was ten souls of once great heroes. I bowed to this invader, thanking him for his gift and before I knew it he had disappeared.
Has anyone else ever been greeted by a helpful soul dawning the dress of a killer?
ps. what the hell should I do with all of these souls burning a hole in my pocket?
