god even trying to make a header for this was too artsy for me

 

These videos cover a variety of topics often discussed or featured in my various Let's Plays, and seek to educate and inform viewers about the inner workings of creating games and content for games. They are presented on a layman's level and hope to elevate the expectations and awareness of viewers when they experience mainstream media, and also serve as a handbook for terms and analytical avenues used in my casting.

 

I am neither proficient nor academically educated in any subjects covered. Further videos down the production line chronologically may return to old subjects to re-examine concepts or terminology and correct them.

 

Note - Camtasia and OBS both are incapable of capturing at good framerates. Sc2 and Unreal 4 are laggier in the recordings than they really are.
