Hey guys,

 

Been meaning to start a thread about this for a while. I have a YouTube channel series dubbed "Gameplay and Talk" that features a variety of retro and classic gaming content. Lately my channel has centered more around walkthrough focused live game playthroughs ("Let's Plays"), as well as live streams, but I also try to occasionally create some retrospective-like videos as well. My channel link is https://www.youtube.com/austinmackert.

 

I enjoy playing games, finishing games, and also learning basic (and advanced) strategies to get through them consistently. My playthrough videos give me a chance to talk about techniques that can make games easier to play and are intended to be good for people having trouble getting through any given title. I do reminisce and talk about other things at times, but the core focus is on what I am doing to get through whichever game I am playing. Also, I don't split up my playthroughs so each video is typically a full, self-contained playthrough from start to finish.

 

I also do weekly live streams on my channel (currently Fridays at 9PM EST). My LPs are usually no more than two hours long, so my live streams tend to cover games that take longer to finish. My live stream link is (https://gaming.youtu...nMackertGT/live).

 

Here are a few example videos! I'll probably post an update in this thread each month with my most recent playthroughs (I'll just hotlink, not embed those):

Highly recommended and awesome videos, his gaming skills are incredible as well. The only potential downside is when I watch him play I think well f*ck it I will never play that good!  :P

I have a couple of old videos, but nothing recently. I do plan on doing some 2600 streams in the future, just not sure when. Would love to pick up a Colecovision and 7800 again as well as use my Intellivision, but they would all need to be A\V modded.. Not really in the cards right now unfortunately. :(

It's bump time!

May was a busy month for me. First up, the usual weekly Let's Plays:

1. Rockman X2 (Super Famicom, all items/armor) - https://youtu.be/1Ig_WSvAbkI
2. Quake: Episode 5 (PC) - https://youtu.be/fUqg-4e04uk
3. Castlevania Bloodlines (Genesis, expert mode) - https://youtu.be/LO6Qnimhdyg
4. MUSHA (Genesis, hard mode) - https://youtu.be/AJAcURr_-oQ

I also did full live stream playthroughs of Super Mario World (SNES), Eternal Ring (PS2), Adventure Islands 1, 2 and 3 (NES), and Dark Souls Remastered (Xbox One).

 

Lastly, I was able to toss together a few off-the-cuff, tutorial-esque videos going over how I create some of the content on my channel. Here's Part 3, which isn't much of a tutorial like the others are, but talks about my physical hardware chain for streaming and recording:
