My New Youtube series

1 post in this topic

Hello everyone.

Long time OC remix appreciator, occasional poster, and overall easy going guy

Today I'd like to share with all you lovely people at OC remix something of my own idea.... even though the concept may already be similar to what some other youtubers have done, however with my own unique flare on things!

So the purpose of this thread, is obviously to get some constructive feedback, on ways I can improve it, or thoughts, if you love the series, well that's awesome, I'm doing something right aren't I?

Essentially I play a game picked at random by a spinner designed by my wife, graphics work done by me, and then I play that game for approximately 10 mins, using Shotcut as my video editor and Audacity as my audio recording software, edit the video, then add my commentary in after doing the edits. However I try and leave in as many stuff ups, screwups and deaths as possible to make the game more real, I tend to just remove loading screens, dialog, or anything that takes away from the actual gameplay itself. The reason I do that? Well I believe it creates a more realistic feel to the video that way.

Initially I thought of an idea, and was going to call it throwback thursdays... then was told that this idea was tried TOO often, or too mainstream / wouldn't work, I have a small following on twitter, so I put out a vote on a new series name, and the name Casual couch gaming won.

So here ladies and gentlemen, is a link to my Youtube series of Casual Couch gaming, which I update weekly with new videos. 

Now this isn't just a shameless self promotion, I also wanted to talk about the concept of a spinner, no I'm not talking about fidget spinners.... get out of here with that nonsense...

I already have the spinner designed and have used it as seen in the series, I've since done a visual overhaul to the spinner slices, and had my wife whom is a coding goddess make some major changes to it visually.  Do you think an informational video showing the first version, and now the polished final product would be interesting or nah? I really want to share my story, or at least be proud of my work, like yes my wife did the coding, but I had to do the leg work of sourcing the images, and logos, using GIMP photo editor to create each slice individually, was an arduous task, and I rushed it initially... but I wasn't happy with it, so I redid the pieces all over again, with better quality and more patience than the original spinner.

Anyway I don't want to make this post TLDR. Would love to hear your thoughts and opinions! 

 

From your casual gamer
