Thought I’d spice up my usual round-up post with a reveal, scooby-doo style.
I made a video two years ago that made me chuckle slightly. I was messing around with Batman Arkham Asylum and recorded a little bit of it and set it to music. That video became “Walk the Dinosaur” which, this week, topped over 500,000 views on YouTube:
I use my YouTube channel mainly for just making silly videos, but it gives you an idea of what an audience likes. On my channel I have previously planned and meticulously edited 10-15 minutes videos full of quality that took me weeks. They never really got past 400-500 views. ALL the videos I made for a cheap laugh have more than 1,000. I’ve only recently re-started recording video game stuff for the channel (which had been dead for 2 years) so maybe there will be more to see there!
So, as per usual here is also another roundup of last week’s articles!
