It's been a minute since my last blog post. I think everyone was dealing with blog fatigue, including me. I suppose I was so excited about being able to record my gameplay and went a little overboard with it, lol. Still haven't figured out how to capture my footage while still being able to game in HDR10. The splitter I recently got doesn't seem to support it, but the tech support for that product seems to be at a high level and willing to work with me. Koopman, I believe.

That said, I'm kind of at a standstill with the Xbox One X games as there's plenty of footage I want to capture there. I thought streaming could have been a temporary workaround, but my upload speeds aren't as good as I thought they were, so the quality is fuzzy. I'm sure I'll figure something out. In the meantime, it's not like I don't have a backlog of 360 and One titles that aren't enhanced. wink

Now, before I get into the purpose of this blog, which is going to be about Wreckateer, let's look at some of the laughable milestones I've achieved since the last blog post:

Completion Percentage: 65%
Completed Games: 5
5,000 Gamerscore
250 Achievements Won
TA Ratio of 2.6
25 day achievement streak
I'm actually hoping to maintain a ratio over 2.0 indefinitely, but if it doesn't happen, then that's fine too. The completion percentage should be maintained higher than it currently is. You know me, always trying to knock out these online achievements first which is why it's low as it is. However, I am striving to not have no more than 10 started games at once. Out of my current started games, I should be able to mop up a few as soon as I dedicate my time towards them, but the rest aren't exactly quick completions. One takes at least 24 weeks to do.

Currently, I'm playing Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor and it's just as fun as I remember it. There is a steep learning curve and even I run into hiccups every now and then with its controls. I'm waiting on the platoon I'm playing with to at least finish up the main game so the rest of the co-op missions are available. They're just downright impossible to do solo, even with the upgrades that you get by getting better ranks throughout the game. I have gotten better from when I first started the game though. For instance, I remember that going for the enemy veet's legs is a weak link. Immobilize the veet and it's basically easy pickings. Of course, they can still fire off shots, but if you're out of their line of sight, they're not really a threat to anyone.

I've also started to get back into WP games again. Unsure if I'll get get my completions up to 100, but we'll see. I'll focus on the ones that are quick completions and what I found to be the most enjoyable at first. I've actually figured out how to record my WP footage too. Could be useful for guides or just crazy stuff I witness and will be able to share that with all of you. You know, those random game physics. They make me laugh.

Anyway, as I'm processing over 200GB of data from captured footage in Steel Battalion, I'm going to start uploading edited videos to YouTube from Wreckateer. I'll link the first video for now and then put everything else into a playlist later.

As expected, I enjoyed going through Wreckateer again. It's like Angry Birds, but found myself more immersed with this, in a way. Guess it was the perspective of everything, like a 3D version of it. Of course, for whatever reason, the videos aren't going to be the standard I envisioned for myself. There were hiccups in the videos that I can't pinpoint its origins, but it gets the job done. It's not not like I'm going to be winning any Academy Awards for my efforts, lol. It's just something I enjoy doing and will undoubtedly appreciate being able to reminisce with these videos later on in life.

That's all for now and here's the first video in the Wreckateer series. Hopefully I can wrap this all up by the end of the week. As always, hope you all have a great day! smile

MrZombieChicken This game is not fun without a cussing like a sailor audio track!
Nicely done. However, I've noticed some graphical stutters. Due to hacking perhaps? roll

Sir Paulygon laugh I'll see what I can do.

I noticed one instance of graphical stutters that don't know how that happened, but yeah -- that's my splicing you're seeing. Figured people wouldn't want this video to last even longer when I used my mulligans and didn't earn gold the first time around. smile

I'm up to Region 5 now with my processing and uploading. It takes about an hour per region.

Sir Paulygon Oh, and for whatever reason, I took way too long with my shots at times and looked for opportunities to trim down the length of the video as best I could. My intentions were to try to get them all around 20 minutes.

MrZombieChicken Sweet! I may check out your footage of "stay on target" achievement too. I was never able to get that one. I think I give up too easily if I don't unlock something in 2-3 tries. wink
Posted by MrZombieChicken on 16 May at 14:37
Sir Paulygon I think that's under my "miscellaneous video" -- haven't gotten to that one yet. I totally crushed that one too, lol. Think I got twice the requirement for that achievement. In the zone on that one!

Anyway, I'll do that one next and ping you once I have it uploaded. Any others you're struggling with?

angelsk I still need to beat a friend's score on that one. Think I set it a little too high on my alt account. Doh.

Plus then finish a few more difficult ones (for me)
Posted by angelsk on 16 May at 21:48
Sir Paulygon I'm sure you will get there! Did you already knock out the other online achievement -- smash 1000 goblins?
Posted by Sir Paulygon on 16 May at 23:09
angelsk Probably not yet :)

Sir Paulygon Whew. Glad I keep backups of these videos. I mus thave accidentally deleted the 10-6 level, so having to redo the editing for Region 10. Probably won't get that uploaded today, but should have the DLC levels sorted though.

Sir Paulygon Here is that Stay On Target achievement for you, Zombie:

Sir Paulygon Should have everything uploaded by tomorrow! Currently uploading Region 12 and wrapping up the editing for Region 10 since I had to dive back into my backups due to a mishap on my part.

Now, I get to play catch up all over again with Steel Battalion, lol.
