First off, I want to say I'm home early from my church mission in Texas due to an injury, but I am fully recovered! I had a great time, learned a lot of Spanish, and feel I did a lot of good.
Second, I want to say that I am working towards becoming a "YouTuber," but I am very, VERY raw and not too good at it. Fortunately, I have a lot of advantages, like this great family I am a part of, that I can turn to for help.
I like to do videos of gaming, but one thing I strive to do that I have yet to find any other gaming YouTuber out there do is keep it family friendly, by doing things such as avoiding profanity and removing it from videos of online play, playing games I'd be comfortable with my nephew seeing me play, etc.
Now this isn't a plea for subscribers, I want to make that clear. What I would like is to draw on the different personalities present here in the family to give me advice, feedback, and criticism on how I can improve. And if you so choose to subscribe cause you think I have potential or whatever reason, I won't say no, however!
A few known issues:
My audio can be bad. My G930's mic is wearing out, and is not compatible with windows 8 on my new rig. I'm looking at getting a new mic.
They are made on movie maker, so special effects/transitions are virtually non-existent. I am looking into buying adobe premiere elements.
I have yet to create a good opener or closer, and don't have much of a brand.
Some of them are VERY rough around the edges. That's why I need you!
What am I looking for?:
What games would you like to see?
How can I improve the quality of the videos I already have up? (Game volume too loud or quiet/not enough or too much action/better choices in music for the ones that have them/etc.)
Did I miss anything that removes the family friendly element from the online game play?
Anything else you can think of?
Anything you can think of you want to see, or I can improve, please, please, PLEASE leave a comment either here, or on the video itself! Most of my videos are short (2-4 minutess) with 3(?) I think being 15 or more, so if you could watch the whole thing too, that'd be great! Due to YouTube's algorithm, it would make others more likely to see it, and more likely to watch.
Any suggestions on a budget mic? Everywhere I look, I read about the blue microphone snowball, but I keep reading they don't last long.
I currently use Fraps to record, and so the files that come out are real big. Any good ideas for external hard drives? Or should I fork over the cash for cloud storage, and if I do the cloud, should I go Google Drive, Dropbox, or another service?
