I might be getting a new-ish-((like a year or two old))-computer within the next three-ish months-((My grandmother is moving out of state, has a new-ish one, and wants to gift it to me because she knows what a Computer geek I am))-and I'm thinking of doing some research to see what equipment I'd need to do Let's Plays on Youtube.
I've wanted to start up doing let's plays since I first laid eyes on Youtube. I mean, it's gaming and talking--I already do that in my spare time, and have a super-fun time doing it....So why not record it?-((other than I haven't owned a computer, or had a chance to really try it :L))
My thoughts regarding what exactly I'd be doing, in terms of actual setup-a microphone and obviously some sort of recording program. I figure if I truly enjoy doing it, then later I can spring for some sort of camera too-so you can actually see my face and reaction in the top or lower corner of the screen.
My thoughts were that if I can't buy the stuff, I would wait until Christmas and ask my parents/ grandparents for the items.
As for the actual videogames I'd be playing; I think I'll start with happy wheels levels and either weird or horror Indie titles. Then, as-((if))-my channel grows at all, I can branch into more mainstream games.
One game I really wanna playthrough would hafta be Lucious, the first and second.~
At this point, I'm just nervous and excited. First of off, my grandmother might decide not to give it to me, then my parents need to actually be okay with me getting my grandmother's computer, and I need to learn how to actually go through and record, edit, and post the playthroughs.
But I'm happy, looking forward to even having a small possibility of doing something that I've been yearning to do for years-thinking I wouldn't get an actual chance anytime in the future.
So, would any of you guys watch my overly-awkward ass play videogames? My thought was to basically just act as I do when I play videogames normally-commenting on what's going on, questioning things, and some swearing/harsher remarks.
Please, please, please comment yes or no-I want to basically figure out if it'd be worth it before I spend an assload of time looking things up and getting things set up!~
Oh, and if this happens, I will be posting another journal announcing it, AND possibly another for YouTube channel name suggestions. If I go through with this, I'd even like to make an Icon for my YT channel-just so, if there are people willing/enjoying watching me game, there's something that could be made into fanart or some stuffs like that.
Thank you for reading!! ^_^
