YouTube

Outside of writing, I also have a YouTube channel where I post gaming videos. It’s a small-scale channel where I share my love of my favourite games by doing Let’s Play videos, and also produce a series examining the history behind the characters and stages of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

Let’s Play!

My Let’s Plays are designed to be different. After experimenting with various games several years ago, I hit my stride doing a Let’s Play of Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation, my favourite game in the series, which featured me making affectionate jabs at the game’s aged graphics, sometimes odd level design, and pretending to argue with Lara Croft, making her out to be a heartless member of the 1% with a love of shooting the poor and only pursuing archaeology for the purposes of increasing her (frequently exaggerated) wealth.

This basically set the standard, which I followed up by doing more Tomb Raider games, although I experimented with different styles of Let’s Plays with other games, but the simplicity of that proved to be a hit, and now I am back in a big way, determined to produce Let’s Plays of as many of my favourite games as possible, showing off what I love about them and getting in some affectionate riffing along the way. So join me, won’t you?

Current Let’s Play:

PSASBR History

But that’s not all. Back in 2012, Sony released their answer to Super Smash Bros, their own crossover fighter PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. It didn’t exactly set the world on fire, but I was impressed by how accurately the characters had been developed to their original games.

I heard a lot of people claiming not to know several characters’ origins or feeling that the accuracy wasn’t all that good, and since I’d played many of the games before, I decided to put together a series that covered the history of every character and stage (except Zeus, because screw Zeus), and here we are!

This series is something I’m incredibly proud of, because of the sheer amount of work that’s gone in, but also how fun it’s been to discover many games I’d never played before (and aside from Killzone and Fat Princess, I’ve been enjoying every single one!).

It’s been very well received in the PSASBR community, and I’ve even been asked if I’d do my history series on Super Smash Bros 4, to which I will say…stay tuned.

For now, the series is about to undergo a revamp, where I will be “remastering” every video in better quality with extra bits added in and correction made where appropriate. Please visit the Remastered page for details on where changes will happen, and please feel free to contribute corrections or suggestions on how to improve the videos.
