HdE's Totally Unoriginal Gaming Show

Hello, folks!

I decided I'd make a clean break and start a new thread here to announce (or re-announce - Youtube and certain other parties have made this far from easy) that my gaming channel venture has finally gone live as of... uhh... five minutes ago, I guess.

I've done a straight re-branding of my old channel, so if you were previously subscribed to HdE Does Anime, you'll find yourselves automatically subbed. I'm leaving the old anime content viewable on the channel, as people seem to enjoy it an it's still bringing a little trickle of traffic my way. I've been asked if I'll still bbe doing anime stuff, so to clear that up, the answer is 'not for now, but never say never.' Everything is in 'let's see how this pans out' mode until my first season fo new content is fully uploaded.

What's that? 'First season?'

Yep! I'll be aiming to upload in blocks of 12 videos, with a break between each season to recuperate and re-evaluate where things are going. This is unfortunately a necessity in the ever changing Youtube climate.

But for now... here's episode one!

Just a quick update, guys and gals.

It's early days in this venture, I know - but performance for this video has been ABYSMAL. 12 views.

TWELVE.

And now Youtube has killed it stone dead in search thanks to its crappy algorithms.

I'd ordinarily write off poor performance as a case of folks simply not finding the content on offer appealing. But when weighing my subscriber count (currently holding at 238) against 12 views, something is going wrong.

If you're subbed to the channel and want to see new content, please check that you've enabled notifications. Youtube is getting notoriously bad for not showing videos to subscribers.

Cheers, Phobos!
(Incidentally, I hope you spotted you got a mention in the special thanks at the end of the video!)
Alas I can not see that! I see a handful of names there in the special thanks part then the where we can follow you and finally about 10 seconds of blank darkness. I assume that it’s meant to be in those final 10 seconds?

My bad! Checking things over, I see that your thank-you credit is actually appended on another video. Sorry about that!
Just to be transparent here, I added a brief 'thank you' at the end of my first couple of videos to mention folks who had given feedback and comments that helped me to zero in on the best audio settings.

There's a re-jigged version of my review of Asteroids for the Atari 7800 that I believe has your name in the credits. Should go up in a couple of weeks.

I shall eagerly await that. Not that I don’t appreciate thanks or anything but you know you don’t have to, right? Ultimately I don’t feel I’ve done much, well anything really that’s actually been of benefit to you.


That’s probably come out wrong, I’m not good at taking anything positive or explaining myself adequately.

Ah, but you have!

Tackling issues with audio levels proved to be a MASSIVE task prior to launch (I'm now left with something like 35 project where I need to either re-record audio or remix it) and your comments a ways back were actually very helpful. I had to collate a lot of different input from different people viewing things on different devices. Every little bit of information helped, in the end.

Plus, you give my videos time of day. Which I'm always grateful for. A brief mention is the least I can do.
