Lets Play: Tribes Ascend (First Look) – Learning to Ski!

Taking my first look at Tribes Ascend for the PC. Recently build a new computer so I now get to play through all these new games I’ve missed out on the past 6 months or so! My upload speed on my internet connection is killing me at the moment so I don’t know how long it will be before I really get frustrated with it, but for now I’ll keep doing videos as long as I enjoy making them and can tolerate my internet connection!

My first play through of Tribes Ascend and learning to Ski all over again. I was a huge fan of Tribes 2 back in the day, but learning to ski is just like riding a bike. You never really seem to forget! I’ve played a few games since I recorded this and I must say by skiing has gotten a lot better since this! Having lots of fun playing Tribes again though.

MW3 Gameplay: Still Learning The Type 95 + What Desktop Mic Do I Use?

Still learning the Type 95 assault rifle on a kill confirmed match on the Fallen map. I also talk about the desktop microphone I use for my recordings. I use the BlueMic Yeti USB desktop microphone http://www.bluemic.com/yeti/

It’s an amazing mic and as it’s USB it’s fully digital audio you record to rather than converting analog to digital and needing extra hardware. You also don’t get any static or interference with a digital mic which is another plus. I actually talked about the mic when I first got it back in April if you’re interested in a great quality desktop microphone for all purpose recording.

MW3 Kill Confirmed on Carbon Gameplay – Learning the Type 95

I’m not a good call of duty player, but I just like making videos and posting them on the internet for fun. More of a learning tool for me to record and post my games and see where I go wrong and what I can improve on. I don’t post games that I top the leaderboard or get a high kill count or anything, but interesting games where I might have a nice kill streak going or a good lesson learned!

This was a kill confirmed match on Carbon played on the XBOX 360.

Ridge Racer PS Vita Gameplay (Off Screen)

I’m starting to get excited about the PlayStation Vita, the launch line-up of games looks promising including Ridge Racer (above). The PS Vita is currently on pre-order here in Australia for ~$348 (wifi only), I think I’ll get one. I’m no way a PlayStation fanboy (jumped ship after the PS2 to XBOX 360) and didn’t really like the PSP but the PS Vita really does look very good.

If you’ve not seen any Little Big Planet PS Vita gameplay footage you really should, its awesome. I’ll see if I can track down some and post it here.

Rayman Origins XBOX 360 Gameplay

I’ve been playing the same old games recently so decided to pick up something new, and Rayman fits that need nicely. Rayman Origins is a throwback to the good old days of 2D side scrolling fun. The artwork is the first thing that jumps out at you on this game, it’s exceptional. The level design is top notch also. There’s lots of fun to be had with Rayman Origins, the learning curve is short but the challenge is also there to keep you occupied for a while.

I played this on XBOX 360 but is also available on PS3 and Wii as well as PC

Terraria PC Gameplay – What Is Terraria?

My first play through of Terraria. Its a pretty interesting game, very similar to Minecraft for those who’ve played that before. You can mine for resources, build stuff, explore for treasure, heaps of stuff. Have not even cracked the surface of this game, still learning everything you can do but looking forward to lots more Terraria soon. Will have to get multiplayer happening which should be a lot of fun with friends. The audio levels were a bit off so apologies for the pick axe sounds being a little loud (will fix that up in the next video).
