    YouTube Dreaming in 16-Bit: Sega-16 Video Review Series

    I've recently begun to dab into the world of YouTube video making, and the result is a new series of video reviews narrated by yours truly. This is a work in progress, and the first episode is kind of rough in some areas (I forgot to mention that Bloodlines is called Vampire Killer in Japan), so please have mercy. And yes, my voice does indeed suck.

    So here's episode 1: Castlevania Bloodlines.

    Your voice is better than mine.

    I need to do it so it doesn't sound like I'm reading. Hopefully, I should get better as I go.

    Don't be so hard on yourself, my voice sucks too.

    *proceeds to watch video*

    *Up to 3:40*

    Heh, I gotta say. I've really been enjoying listening to this. Your voice is just fine, easily better than mine (sob). Only problem I can see is you need a better microphone. If you ever hope to be on the Blast Processing Podcast, you need a good mic man!

    Oh yeah, don't be afraid to include a little music here and there while you're talking. It can immensely help set a mood or direction with your narrative.

    *finishes video*

    Very well done video review man, ESPECIALLY for a first video. MUCH better than my first. You should definitely consider making video productions a part of Sega-16, even if you were the only guy making them. I've never actually played a Castlevania before (outside a little of SCIV) but this game looks really fun.

    After it was done, I was thinking about how it needed some background sounds or music. I'll definitely work to incorporate that in future installments.

    Thanks!

    You will definitely get better as you go. With that said I hope you do more.

    Oh yeah, I rated and subscribed.

    Want me to post my thoughts on the episode from here in the video comments too?

    Great job, O creator. I really did like your voice, although it sounded like you were reading at times, that can be hard to avoid. I think it's an awesome start for a Sega-16 video series, and might I add, you picked a great if not perfect game to kick it all off.

    Kudos.

    It felt like I was watching LeVar Burton on Reading Rainbow.

    Ken, I love your writing and your voice is fine, but you did kind of come off like narrator for a kid's story . . . which made it all the more disconcerting when you started the rough languange at about 6:30.

    I guess my son won't be listening to this particular bedtime story.

    Awesome review, of my favorite game on the Genesis. The LeVar Burton comment was a joke due to the scripted tone in his voice. It's still truthful though. PBS broadcasting acid-flashbacks.

    On a side note though.

    Melf, you're an English prof.
    I'm ignorant to the 'laws' behind it, I've burned many a braincell since my serious ventures in academic English; was the proper context used in your phrasing of "It was automatically assumed by my friends and me," at :45? It works & is probably right, but it sounds 'wrong' to my ears.

    Wrong enough to get me to 'think' about it at least.

    It's grammatically correct, though perhaps I shouldn't have used the dummy subject there. A lot of people say that kind of phrase wrong by using "I" instead of "me." "I" is a subject pronoun, so it's not used here (just remove the compound subject and say "It was automatically assumed by I," and you'll see how it's wrong).

    But now that I've heard the piece so many times, I'm finding a lot of stuff I would have liked to have phrased better. Something to consider for next time. And I got the Reading Rainbow vibe too, lol.

    Ok, that was awesome. Ken, your voice really fits the review and has just the right amount of monotone and manly depth to make it awesome.

    That was very good! You have an excellent voice, very well suited for this kind of stuff. Also, I agree with you that the classic, pre-SOTN Castlevanias are better (except for Aria of Sorrow on the GBA, that one's awesome)
