The more detailed blog entry that this video is a companion for can be found at http://wp.me/p1RWaN-bY. I'm once again taking part in the awesome Extra Life 24 hour gaming marathon for the Children's Miracle Network and support from my awesome YouTube audience would be great! All the details are in the video.
This show is dedicated to showcasing retro video games from all different systems, eras and levels of quality to players both old and new. It involves me playing different retro games, talking about their design, what makes them good (or bad) as well as some of their history and that of the developers and what relevance to modern games they may have. Occasionally, I will also cover modern remakes of older retro titles or modern games with retro inspired design in episodes called Retro Flashforward which has its own dedicated playlist as well. Whether you're already into retro games or just want to see some of the history of video games, there's something for everyone!
This show is a spin-off of my Retro Flashback series that rather than talk about actual retro titles, talks about either modern remakes of older titles or new games that are heavily inspired by retro design methods. These episodes are also in the Retro Flashback playlist but I've split them off here to make them easier to watch on their own.
These videos are VLOGs of sorts, giving a verbalization to the thought process I go through when writing certain posts for my Geek Bravado blog. I don't pre-plan my blog posts beyond thinking about them in my own head and for certain posts, I find it helps to speak out my train of thought, both to figure out what I want to write and to also expand on points that are too long to put in the blog but which people might be interested in hearing in their entirety.
These videos won't be a regular thing and I will only be making them for certain blog entries. They aren't necessary to watch in order to appreciate the blog posts they are companions for. They will often be long, verbose and rambly and I probably will repeat myself several times. That's the point and they definitely aren't for everyone but I'm trying this to see if I can improve my craft, both spoken and written.
