So, I recently decided to go ahead, even though I had zero previous experience making any kind of real video content, and create a Youtube channel for my blog, Retro Revelations. I had a friend of mine with some experience under his belt, give me a run through on programs to use to get me started, and off I went.
As a first choice, I decided I’d play Street Fighter II: The World Warriors on SNES, because once upon a time I was pretty snazzy at Street Fighter in general, and figured “What the hell, I’m basically just experimenting, so I can just beat the shit out of this game, look pretty good while I’m talkin’, and it’ll be great!” Well, that was true, until I got to the bosses. But I handled my business, and I was on to the main event: M. Bison. Except then I ran into a living buzzsaw….named M. Bison. And let me tell you, he is one true blue sonofagun. Even on a NOT hard setting, he still randomly decides to be an especially cheap SOB whenever he feels like it.
So my first ever video attempt, which I figured I could hammer out in 15 minutes, no problem, turned out a bit longer than that…..all because M. Bison is a heartless bastard, who doesn’t care a lick about the vain attempts at Youtube glory by mere mortals. So I could have just imploded, cut the video, whatever. But I decided, you know what, f**k it, I’m gonna roll with the punches, and I kept it all in, epic struggles against Mr. Bison included.
So here it is, my first attempt at Gamin’ and Talkin’. Hope you enjoy!
