Pokemon Uranium Let’s Play 1/4 [No Commentary]

Welcome to episode 1 of a short 4 part series where I play though Pokemon Uranium – a full fan-made game released in 2016. Created using the RPG Maker XP engine, this game adds 150 new fan-made species of Pokémon, as well as an expansive new region. I started playing this game a while back when I was bored, and even though I did enjoy playing it, I never got around to finishing it.

If these videos do well, I might return to the region of Tandor and finish my adventure.

My problem with the Pokemon games

Now that Pokemon Sword and Shield have been released, and the whole ‘Dexit’ controversy has died down, I thought I would spend a bit of time talking about my general problem with the Pokemon games.

The Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening – My GOTY 2019

Nostalgia is proving time and again that it is a very powerful thing. The massive amounts of re-makes and re-imaginings coming out and making big bucks is definitive proof of that. As the original 1993 version of The Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening was my first game, I was super excited for the (re)release that Nintendo announced a while ago. With upgraded visuals, gameplay tweaks and an overall adorable aesthetic, it’s no single wonder that I crowned this game my Game Of The Year 2019.

Check out the video embedded below to hear my thoughts on this wonderful little game.

Elgato HD60 S Fallout 4 Test Footage

I managed to get my hands on an Elgato HD60 S game capture device for Black Friday. This short video is a small test that I did to see how it works. I decided to record a bit of Fallout 4 on the Playstation 4 as it’s one of my favourite games.

Hopefully basically means that I now have a valid and stable way of recording lots of game-play footage!

A (mostly coherent) talk about the FTC and COPPA

So, let’s talk about the FTC and the new COPPA guidelines that are coming into effect in 2020. Otherwise known as the Adpocalypse!

It turns out that YouTube has (illegally) been collecting data on people under the age of 13 for quite some time. This violates “The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act” ( or COPPA for short). Luckily, the FTC have caught them, and slapped them with a big fine.

However!

The FTC are completely going overboard and they are gonna be targeting YouTubers directly, even if their content isn’t directly marketing towards people under 13.

As a YouTuber who talks about things like videogames and figures, this could potentially be a big problem for the future of my channel.

Wii 2 HDMI Adapter review

Do you have an old Wii? Do you need to connect it to a modern TV? Then I have the exact thing for you!

The ‘Wii 2 HDMI’ adapter is an interesting piece of hardware that converts the propriety output of the Nintendo Wii into a more usable HDMI connector. It up-scales the outputted image, and also helps the Wii fit better into a modern gaming ecosystem.

What makes this little do-hickey even better is the fact that it’s not even all that expensive. Check out the embedded video below and see what you think!

Second-hand Haul! [Episode #4] Glorious Groudon!

In the fourth episode of ‘Second-hand Haul!’, I show off the many, many things that i’ve found in my local charity shops in recent weeks. I’ve actually managed to find a whole load of stuff recently, which is why i’m uploading so many haul videos.

This episode features Groudon, the legendary pokemon first introduced in Ruby and Sapphire, as well as a ton of retro games for plenty of different consoles.

Check out the embedded video below:

SUPER CHEAP LootCrate clearance sale

Every so often LootCrate (The Loot Company) has sales on their excess stock, stock that they haven’t been able to include in previous LootCrate bundles. So when I got an email informing me that one of those sales was currently underway, I found it hard to not buy a few things.

When I actually viewed all the awesome nerdy merch, I couldn’t actually believe how many cool things that I actually wanted was listed on there.

Check out this video to see exactly what I bought, and whether I got an absolute bargain or not. Spoiler: I’m pretty sure I did!

A weekend filming in Amsterdam

A few weeks ago my girlfriend and I took a trip to Amsterdam. I didn’t shoot all that much footage as I was too busy spending time with my other half, but I did take a small amount. This included a double-decker train AND a pretty awesome street performer.

Check out this short video and tell me what you think about it!
