Back in like 2006-2008, YouTube was just getting big, and I really enjoyed when people would upload game videos with commentary added. Even though I was SUPER shy and had no confidence in my speaking ability (especially when using a bad microphone and talking to no one in the room) I decided I’d try a video game commentary video of my own as a test.
I played a bit of a game called Time Zone, which I translated with a fellow ROM hacker (and current Poemato CX regular!) SparTonberry:
Anyway, you can feel the lack of confidence and skill from the video – that’s why I didn’t do anything beyond this initial test. I wouldn’t do any Let’s Plays or streaming again until 6 or 7 years later, when we created Poemato CX. It’s neat to look back and see your roots sometimes, though, so even though this is pretty embarrassing and cringe-worthy maybe it’ll help inspire others to get out there and NOT give up after a disappointing test or two. Don’t be like me 😛
