Competition Cartridges | The Braselspective | Nintendo World Championships and others!

This video was originally supposed to be a short and sweet list video, but I got ambitious. When that happens, I take WAAAY too long to finish stuff. The end result was worth it, I thought.

I decided to go ahead and do all the voice over in live action for two reasons: 1) to give everything a consistent sound. 2) to sound a bit more natural when delivering lines. I think it worked well, but I forgot to turn off the AC… -_- I’m such a freaking audio n00b.

I want to thank Game Trader II and Charlie Shaw in particular for giving me the idea as well as a lot of material and information for making this video. I’m incredibly excited to hit up the Missouri Game Con in August. If you get a chance, go swing by their store in St. Charles.

How Does StarTropics Build off of Zelda? | StarTropics vs Zelda | The Braselspective

This video gave me a lot of problems from the writing process to the audio. Not sure why I was so off my game, but I got it done. I’m not 100% happy with this one, and that makes me a little sad, but I still wanted to get it out before I went another week without a bigger video. I’m sorry it’s not the best video I’ve released, but I’m still happy enough with it to release it to the public.
