Generally speaking... while it's not a technically bad channel (we can hear you, audio and video are clear), you trail off a lot and start mumbling... this is more just a habit that needs to be broken (I have been guilty of it as well, and still do occasionally) - though the trick is to either envision yourself speaking to an audience -or- envision yourself speaking to a group of friends (depending on the type of episode - instructional is the former for example, while LPs are the latter usually).
Focus on maintaining that clear stream of thought, and clear voice, and you'll do fine.

Jan 31, 2013I wouldn't limit your name by making it game-specific (I know I'd be regretting it now if I had) - instead make it more focused on your 'identity' - since the channel name is your "brand" - whether you're branding yourself (Username), branding your content (USC-Creator, USC-Gaming, USC-Reviews, USC-LP), or just going loopy (UnlabeledSoCo) - you need to consider what you want that name to mean to people.Posted in: Other Help
My channel is focused on my personality and the games I enjoy (so it's my screen name/pen-name), where as if I was going to make strictly a classic game review, I'd do something like "Cartridge King" ... or if it was first impressions "Instant Content"
Jan 24, 2013Since a lot of you can tell, I post a lot in this section of the forum (I crawl the "Video/Series Help" subforum a few times a week), I thought I'd ask for questions from you guys for an updated and more detailed technical recording FAQ (I'll post an "Updated Recording FAQ" in this section with both text and video versions - when the video versions are complete).Posted in: Technical Help
Right now the core questions I'm looking for (and I'll try to answer here, while working on compiling the FAQ), are questions on:
- Hardware Requirements
- Audio/Video "Best Practices"
- Sony Vegas
I'll look at expanding that list after I'm able to get that core done (such as expanding into other free/pay software, Mac content, digital imaging/animation software, minecraft mods, etc.)
(thought a lot about where to post this, and while it's technically a "call for help", it is for content specific to this section, and felt this was the most appropriate place to put it)
Jan 20, 2013While I don't have personal experience with them, I have done quite a bit of shopping around and asking questions since I eventually do hope to do some work with console titles on my channel - pretty much keep running into the same answer wherever I go "Hauppauge" - every response I've gotten about different brands included some pretty nasty "but"s or "except"s about problems they've had with them. It's one of those situations where you have to pay a premium because only one company can really do it right (another big example of this is Wacom and drawing tablets, but I digress :P)Posted in: Let's Plays Help
Jan 17, 2013not a bad start... could use some tweaking on audio levels in this video (its gotten slightly better in newer videos, but only marginally - still too quiet). Voice first, game audio second.Posted in: Let's Plays Help
Also work on building your enthusiasm a little bit, think about how you talk when you're describing something you love doing (or failing that, think about how a kid describes something new to them that they find interesting), a lot of variance helps keep people sticking with you, rather than letting you become part of the background. This will come with time though.
that's about all I can complain about, visually the videos are just fine. Just need what most new channels (including my own) need help with, and that is content.
Jan 10, 2013Pretty much what Topher said is 100% on the money - do what you enjoy doing, minecraft is a great tool for getting your "LP voice" (or your commentary voice, or whatever). It's good for helping you get over the awkwardness that is "talking to a microphone".Posted in: Let's Plays Help
The reason asking for ideas is kinda iffy - is most people with the ability to act on the good ideas will do that rather than give them away.
Just remember btw - the first several recordings you'll be doing, will be overcoming technical issues, unless you are very very lucky. After that it's finding your voice (which can take weeks or months), and then finally you'll have a gauge on the content you'll be creating more "long term". You'll need the patience to get through those frustrating starts to really get moving.
Jan 8, 2013In the 'reply' window, there's 3 icons on the top left... one's a lightswitch, one's a pink and white thing, and the 3rd is a teal little menu looking thing... click on the 3rd one.Posted in: Forum Discussion & Info
selected "youtube subscribe" from the pull-down menu (it's at the very bottom).
Type in your channel name, for example I would type: Alzorath
Click "OK" and it will give you something that looks like:

End of the original Titanic movie, wasn't it?
The old one, and not the mini series nor the new one.
But given then, that sapphire necklace still lays somewhere buried, day it is ever found is the day that man/woman goes top celeb.
But to subject, I really wouldn't wear any kind of jewelry while taking a shower. The chemicals in common water, even well water, would wear down or corrode most metals in one form or another. While silver being most easy to clean, gold is meh, stainless steel isn't.
As for a processor's IHS, I am sure it would corrode. Not sure what made of really, aluminum probably, in which isn't going to corrode that bad if any noticeable. However the bottom side and PCB is another story.

Console gamers don't get tender thumbs Nancy. And if the controllers weren't the greatest piece of gear invented for gaming then you would be using a mouse and keyboard for your console. Arguing is futile.
