Wk 12 Activity: P12 – Slice of Life “Let’s Play” Anno 2070!!

For Project 12 we were tasked with redoing a previous project, only bigger and better than ever. I chose to redo our project to make a short vlog, but instead to expand it to a 20-minute “Let’s Play” about one of my favorite video games as well as the recent car accident I was in. I was inspired to do this by popular youtube channels as well as the efforts of one of my friends to make it big, which hasn’t worked out for him yet.

For those who are unfamiliar, a “Let’s Play” is basically a recording of yourself playing a video game. There are several types, including: Instructional, where you describe the game and how to play it, Commentary, where you play though the game role playing as the character in it reacting to his surroundings, and Challenge, where you play the game in a specific way as to make it harder for you.

I decided to improve upon the Vlog of Week 2 by playing the game, explaining what I’m doing as I go in order to instruct anyone who may become interested, and then describing a recent event in my life including a car accident that I was in and the repair process that came after. It’s currently in the process of being edited. But as soon as the audio’s smoothed out and it’s uploaded to my youtube channel you can see it right here.
