All done. The 'default' thumbnail for this video is perfect.
I tried to make this as short as possible (it could have easily been twice as long) but I just had so much to say.
Out of the entire Heroes series of videos I still think the Heroes III review is the best, followed by this one. I think the writing could of flowed a bit better. I keep saying things like 'before', 'instead' and 'because'.
You may notice that in some of the shots I look slightly different and the lighting has changed. This was actually filmed over 3 days. The first 2 days was what was scripted but while I was editing I had other ideas which I then filmed. This has happened before but it's the first time I've actually bothered to film something.
Note to self: 'loud' parts don't work well.

My 2nd entry into the "Reviewers Roundtable". The topic of "Giant Worm Monsters" was my choice for the month of May.
I had some trouble editing this video. I had recorded all my dialogue but the next day it all vanished, so I had to record it all again...annoying. This video also reminds me that I need a better microphone.

My Portal review:
Things I forgot to mention:
- I love Wheetley's laugh.
- Suprisingly they didn't have rooms that dwarf the ones in the previous game.
- Some of the puzzles are painfully difficult to figure out. There was 1 particular puzzle where there was a ledge and some blue gel. I began by trying to build momentum with the gel by getting some of the floor and the ceiling and continously bouncing myself up and down before shooting a portal and firing myself up, over the ledge. I tried and failed at this for what felt like 30 minutes. I then noticed a buttom on the wall. I bounced up, pushed the button and a lift rose up to the ledge.............yeah.
- The writing is wonderous.
