Prologue:
Some might have noticed me, not posting at all, lately.

Things happened in life. At work. And for my board gaming as well.

It goes well. It goes well. The third part is kinda gone.

There has been one thing going for me. And it was playing video games. Especially the PC kind. But also mobile games. Games that I can play and simply shut off again when time runs out.

One game in particular. On my cellphone.
I met some nice people in an alliance (very important, patient people).
And also get to partake of their Discord group.

And a couple of those people actually had their personal video channel in Discord.

One thing lead to another. I simply asked the video posters of what program would be best to use. I picked one, and started posting.

For sharing video's. I had to upload them on a website. Best thing that comes to mind is my Youtube channel.

Meanwhile, I uploaded over 20 video's already.
You don't see me, you only hear me talking (except the very first).
You see me commenting as well in subtitles.
And you see me commenting on my subtitles with subtitles.
Long story short. I really enjoy making these video's. I try to put in some humour. While it often is very hard to do so.

I am planning to expand the number of games. The only way of doing this is to get a proper PC and recording tools. I am willing to spend some good money on it too!
My cousin is gonna help me with this.

That would be it for now.

Cheers, X3M

PS. I only share the link to my channel if you are a RTS player.
PS2. I only post more if people are actually interested, or have questions or even remarks ;)

:)

4.5 months later.
I reached 100 subscribers.

And I have the feeling, these are real.

I am colaborating with another Youtuber, hosting a tournament.
I also got invited into the Youtube program of the main game that I share on my channel.

Actually gaining rewards this way.
It makes me happy!

250 milestone

A week or 2 ago, I reached 250 subscribers.
Meanwhile, the game developers that I mainly represent is awarding me with a steady flow of ingame rewards.
These are so high, that I hardly get to spend them now :)
Which is a good sign on the level of rewards.
But also an indication how little time I actually have in regards to attend to my hobby...

Ranting costs time. So, no more ranting.

By the way, this topic is relatively old. How come only now someone asks me to share?
O well, here it is:

Thanks!!!

And for those who own a strong mobile.
I have a recruitment link under every video.
The top 10 players in my recruitment can get rewards from me.

So what you basically do is

So what you basically do is play and comment games a bit like a reviewer?

It's actually possible to do that with mobile device games too? Do you need a recorder on the mobile device or you record it on your PC?

I intend to make at least mobile games, I could send you a prototype when ready. If I am lucky, I could have something working by the end of the year. Knowing myself, it might only see the light next year, or not at all.

Benefits of being a Youtuber

It started as a joke tbh.
It got me so much more already :)

I comment on what is happening or what the player is doing. 90% is me in those video's, fighting another player.
But I am part of an inner circle. And also comment on tournament video's of other players who shared the video.

It is easier to do so with mobile devices. You can record the screen AND sound with the proper apps. I recommend DuRecorder for recording. It has also an edit function for beginners.
For those who have experience, Kinemaster is a better option.
All games so far are mobile, including Dune 2.
The 4 Minecraft video's have been recorded on my pc. Although, a jealous guy disliked bombed the last 2. AND my pc crashed as well due to me tinkering with it.

We come together on Discord. The proper link would be the one towards Fatsquatch Games. We have a company somewhere hiding there, that is making a mobile game. Fatsquatch himself announced to make video's of that game. Although, a couple of others got the link to the "under development" game as well.

Although, I could do a video on yours. You are welcome to participate on Discord. And I can arrange a section for you and your game development. You can post screenshots etc.
And send PM to people that you trust with a link to your game.

I shall send you a PM of the links to follow.

Discord

Is a great platform to chat as well.
If anyone is interested in having a home there.
I could create one:
"BGDF"

If people join in, I will start building a room within:
https://discord.gg/UsV7CVR

We don't have just AoW3 players.
Minecraft and other games as well.
And a couple of Youtubers gather around.
There are also people that can advice on Youtubing.
Or at least designing video's.
Fatsquatch often does a shout out to new people and games.
He has a reach to over a little of 1k people already and is still growing.

Cheers, X3M

I don't think I have a

I don't think I have a microphone, not sure.

The following could be off topic.

A BGDF discord channel (or another platform) could be interesting. Either for chatting, playtesting or commenting instead of doing it in a forum.

I am not familiar with discord, it's like a audio chat right? In that case, we could have a meeling event every month where we talk about a specific subject.

Voice chat is also possible.

Voice chat is also possible. I use it when I play a 2v2 game with my cousin.
But the possibility for voice chat rooms is possible as well. I can ask for details about this from the more experienced users.
There are already a couple around in every Discord server that I visit.
A reserved one should be possible as well.

This week

I reached 333 subscribers. I think in parts of 1000.

Although my progress is slow. The developers of AoW3 posted yet another video of me on the official Facebook page.
Which is being considered weird by certain observers:

1. I do not add #fanvideo anymore to my video's. Since I am already in the YT program. I feel that others should get the chance.
2. I do not place the link to the video's in the Discord section that also contains fanvideo.
3. I ridicule my opponent in the chosen video. Normally frowned upon by many. I only do that with people who complain and flame a lot... wait, maybe it was a notorious complainer towards the developers as well.

Somehow I get the feeling. That the developers think that those who want to get into the programming. Are missing something. While I am showing it all the time.
I have yet to discover what it is, that makes me different compared to the, what I consider, the best candidates to get on that official Facebook page.

My work is interfering a lot lately.
I also started going to school again.

I found the Facebook link!!!

I found the Facebook link/URL ... You are very funny when you comment on these Video! Sometime a bit hard to understand... But funny never the least!... ROTFLMAO!!! Oh baby... I only use them for FUN!... Oh baby...! Ha ha ... Very humorous...

Note #1: Maybe you could make a video with the Salt-N-Pepa song "Push It"...! Would capture the "Ooh Baby, baby" nicely! ROTFLMAO!!!

https://youtu.be/vCadcBR95oU

Note #2: I also watched the video of you against Tracie. It was comical too... From his perspective: "Not Extreme!" And then you Gold-Boosting because of your "panic", which was also funny too! LOL You finished him off in about 10 minutes. Was a quick match. You really had the upper-hand on him.

Good times!!

You have yet to see the 2v2 I did with him.
From his channel, his point of view. His reaction is often like naming an unit that is "useless" or "imba".
He named me imba and himself useless. It was funny as he... :) The whole chat was laughing.

Poor opponents.
