Hey Guys! long time no post it feels like huh? Phew its been a week, found it hard to find the energy to pick up the ole game controller let alone make videos and post :) but here I am Friday night coming to you live from downtown. Progress is going great on Project Mega Man and I'm having a blast doing it, I am happy to report that I've beaten Mega Man 1!!! This was a big step for me, being one of the hardest games of the series in my opinion and also since... this was my first time beating the game without cheats :( *embarrassed face* I KNOW I KNOW! But I was an impatient little kid and I was like "hey can't let this Game Genie go to waste!" Besides back then we didn't call it cheating... it was "Game Enhancement"... The same way people didn't used to think smoking was bad for you... *ahem* Anyhoo so this was a milestone for me and it got me thinking of which Mega Man's I truly beat sans the game genie in my youth which is another awesome reason for doing this project, to have had the experience of playing my favorite classics with no outside help.
Well below you will find two videos, the first being Bombman the final robot master I took on. I went back to big green subtitles on this one which is really not ideal but it gets the job done. I have also uploaded these videos to You Tube instead of loading them directly on to Blogger which jumped the quality quite a bit. Blogger would always smash the files so far down that the quality would greatly suffer but you tube allows much larger files to be uploaded. The second video is of Wily's Castle which I feel is my best one yet, and... has no subtitles... thats right, I took the next big step and did a voice over! lol I am actually really happy with the way it turned out and hope everyone likes it. If you are hearing impaired well... sucks to be you lol sorry but I can only do so much :) For the Wily video I used a new editing program I found online which was free and I was stupid to think there wouldn't be a catch... The editing software was great however after doing ALL the work on my project and publishing it to a file i find out "oh bee tee dubs... uuuuummm you can pay a hundred bucks to register this program or we're sticking a big ugly watermark on the beginning and end of your file" and since I didn't just have an extra Benjamin lying around and didn't want to re do the whole video again... i stuck with the water mark... its not THAT obtrusive and does go away for 95% of the video. Like I said this is a work in progress and I will fall into a groove with the videos where I have a good thing going consistently... kind of interesting how thats a parallel of the mega man series... whoooooooooooa :)
