Obviously we don’t do video on RPS, because we are Old MenTM.
Only now I’ve done a video, for some reason. It’s in the vein of those Let’s Play things that are all over YouTube, tt’s my first one ever, and I’m well aware it’s pretty shonky on both a content and technical level. I wanted to give this a shot regardless of outcome, to see what it’s like and to see what I can learn. In it, I play one mission from the current build of Goldhawk Interactive’s indie X-COM homage Xenonauts, which is out now on Steam Early Access. I also talk pretty much non-stop for about 17 minutes, which I don’t believe is something I’ve ever done before in my life. My mum’d kill to have a conversation that long with me.
Here you go then. Be kind, if possible, and if you can’t then at least be constructive. If there seems to be an appetite for more of these – both from you lot and from me (i.e. if I do not run off to live in the woods in shame), hopefully I’ll do more. And hopefully I’ll get the audio balance and video quality right next time. No promises, though.
