Watch Dogs e04: Knock Down

This extra-long episode (but I hesitate to call it a megasode) was made from the last remaining Watch Dogs footage on my hard drive. That means, if I want to make a fifth episode, I'll have to play the game again first.

I don't really want to play the game anymore, though. The game is stupid.

Watch Dogs e03: Spider Tank Origins

I haven't played Watch Dogs in months, but I still have a bunch of gameplay footage on my hard drive. I edited this short episode together so I could delete some capture files and free up some disk space. Everybody wins! Except Aiden, the star of Watch Dogs. He ends up getting run over by a train.

My first Minecraft video

With Minecraft being the most popular search term on YouTube (are you serious?), I guess I figured my channel wasn't complete without its share of the game. What I learned is that it takes 90 minutes of raw Minecraft gameplay to produce ten minutes of entertaining footage. For its popularity, damn if Minecraft isn't the dullest thing I've ever watched. It's so boring, I have to sing lyrical alterations of B-52s and Matthew Sweet songs while playing just to make it fun (watch the video, you'll see).

Fight Meee s02e09: Didn't Compute

As we draw close to the end of Fight Meee's second season, I learn the harsh reality about what happens when Street Fighter practice takes a back seat to Destiny.

How not to solo Thorn: A two-part saga

The last stage of Destiny's Thorn exotic hand cannon bounty has become a popular subject for YouTube gamers. Of particular popularity is the concept of "soloing" the strike -- running it on one's own and successfully defeating the "hidden" boss, Xyor the Unwed -- for the purpose of unlocking Thorn, arguably one the best weapons in the game. Doing so, it turns out, is a test of patience.

The two videos below represent my last two attempts at this challenge. I can assure you there were other attempts, all of which resulted in me throwing in the towel (usually without passing the initial locked door) before these two.

These videos were edited for time. Part 1 was the result of about 90 minutes of actual gameplay, and Part 2, about 75 minutes recorded later the same week.
