You may have heard of my other site, The Clutter Reports, since it’s in my sidebar and I link to it almost every Sunday. If you haven’t, I created it to get myself to clean by making an article out of it. Sometimes it’s about organizing my various collections and junk, and sometimes it’s about reviewing items in my collection to trim it down a bit. I only update it once a week.
One of the collections I go through are my video games. With the other collections, I can settle for photos and written articles, but with games I want my readers to see it in action. However, some games have no clips and they could be taken down at any time. This is the reason I started the occasional video review here at the Spotlight, and those same reasons convinced me to start a video series for The Clutter Reports called Video Game Clutter.
For the first episode I chose to go over the gaming platforms I have, to see if anyone wants to watch the series. This is also my first video done with the new camera, since I didn’t get to go to ComiCONN (stupid tropical storm). Actually, I re-shot some footage that weekend to make up for not being able to go to the convention. While I still have a ways to go to be making quality reviews, here’s a preview of my video article series, a joint production of both my projects.
Some of this was actually done with the old camera for the original shoot. The view at the TV and game footage was all I had left, but I figured the new camera would look better in the long run, so why not re-shoot? The audio was done with the old camera, and I need a pop screen if I’m going to do that again.
Also, the segment at the TV…probably should have sped that better. Future episodes will have music in the background, from the game itself when I can. Since there wasn’t a game to review, I just went with silence.
So any thoughts are welcome in the comments. The episode officially debuts on The Clutter Reports tomorrow at the usual time and future episodes (when I get to them) will go there rather than here. (Unless I need a filler video.) Maybe you’ll end up going through your old game library, too.
