Video: Daemons Vs Blood Angels

I've got a new video battle report uploaded today, from my game with He Who Shall Remain Nameless yesterday.  We played Tyranid Attack from the Battle Missions book, so it wasn't really a standard game; with that in mind, I had a bit of fun with it.

Here it is, Daemons Vs Blood Angels.

I definitely like the voice over style. Your commentary does not get washed out by the back ground noise, and it allows you to avoid the snide comments that tend to float in when you are recording.

I think you could also do this over the video and have it work out well. You could use the original description as notes for you and voice it over with more concise descriptions of what is happening.

What snide comments?

Oh, the peanut gallery! I thought you meant me - I'm still sensitive from being called 'snarky' over on YTTH. (Though in fairness, I was kinda snarky on the video they were referring to.)

Yea, I know what you mean. It's hard to talk over the guys, much less the background noise of the card gamers.

Doing it later also gives me perspective on what happened. I just have to avoid any 'brilliance in hindsight.' I actually deleted one section when I realized that I was taking credit for something I didn't mean to do. It wasn't deliberate, but you get going on something, and we all of us think we're better than we are.

I don't know about this one. It was kind of hard to follow.

Evil Homer said...

I actually like the voice over rather than the live talking.

AN interesting idea is to do two of these. Same pics, both players voicing over there thoughts.

Kind of a Perspectives thing.

Whit - you're right about it being hard to follow; since the game was cut short when Dale (I'm going to stop messing with him, even though I think He Who Shall Not Be Named is a funnier nickname) gave it up, I didn't have much to work with. I decided to use that material to experiment.

I like Homer's idea. It's not hard to capture narrations, as long as your computer has a mic. Both players could record there thoughts about the game turns.

Ah well! I still have video for I think 3 battle reports, including the Hard Boyz practice game me and Whit played.

I use a USB headset mic to record my voice... it's worth it since I was already using it for a bit of online gaming with MM(ESNO), EH, Farseer Tim, etc on EQ2 a while back.

I do have a (MUCH MUCH) better mic, but most people's computer speakers are crap and it's far more convenient to use a simple USB headset mic.

I wished I had watched this before our last game. Maybe castling up in the center might have helped actually give you a game. D'oh!

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Don't feed the trolls!

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
