Psyklaxia: my new YouTube channel!
« on: May 27, 2018, 05:25:29 am »
Hello all! I've been rather busy of late, mostly with Real Life stuff, but I've also found the time to prepare for this, my new YouTube channel! I'd been thinking about it for a while, but I'm finally ready.

The theme, funnily enough, is ROM hacking. I will provide short reviews of hacks, translations and homebrews, but the most important part (for me) will be tutorials. I'm making a series explaining ROM hacking to everyone, starting soon with a beginner's explanation of how computers actually work. They are a lot more work than reviews, of course, so most of the time you'll be seeing reviews.

Here's my first video, a review of Super Mario World: The Lost Adventure Episodes 1-3:

I've already got a bunch of videos done and ready to go, but for the sake of consistency (I know YouTube viewers prefer that) my videos are all scheduled to come out every Sunday at 09:15 UTC - so it will always be on Sunday wherever you are. ;)

Please subscribe, as there will be plenty more videos to come! Maybe I'll even review your hack! :) Enjoy!

Awesome! I welcome more romhacking related videos on YouTube. I don't think there are nearly enough.

@Psyklax - Great! I'm looking forward to seeing what ROM hacking tutorials you can (or have) come up with! :)

Thanks for the interest, guys! And Filler, one of your translations will be appearing next, see if you can guess which. ;)

Incidentally, I've changed my website to look in the same style as the channel, but I'm having trouble embedding the YouTube channel there. Currently it seems to work in Edge but not Firefox. Weird.

Just for information, I've just finished the sixth video, so there should be a regular stream of videos. You'll just have to wait until each Sunday to find out what they are. :D

Just in case anyone missed it, my second video went up on Sunday, reviewing the small amount of translation Filler did for Coca-Cola Kid. :)

(I wanted to embed the player but I don't know if it works on the forum - or if the mods are okay with it)

It's early days in my channel and I'm very much open to feedback, by the way! :) Tune in on Sunday for my first tutorial on how computers work. Most of you guys will probably know it anyway, but who knows, you might learn something! ;)

A channel by you focused on rom hacking. Subscribed.
Is it you talking in the video? Well done!

Alrighty! Pretty good stuff there!
Love the editing and voice over narration. Can't wait for the tutorials.

Your voice is soothing and mellifluous, and you do not force viewers to sit through an intro or stare at your face.  I can hardly ask for more than that.

On the other hand, you do seem to say repeatedly that you haven't actually played much of the hacks in question.
This depresses me. I feel like a goldfish right now...

In all fairness, I've released two videos - and only in the first one did I say that, since I was doing three hacks at once. :D I showed every level of Coca-Cola Kid. I don't plan on playing each game for hours. But thank you for your kind words. :)

(looks up 'mellifluous' on Wiktionary)

Hey Psyklax! I left a comment on your YouTube video. You make great videos! :)

For anyone paying attention, the latest video, for the record, can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuL0CZrxSYo.

While most of us newbies are probably be anxious to see more tutorials from Psyklax, here are the next two videos in the series, in the meantime:

Well, it's nice to have 24 subs at this point, though I've been getting fewer and fewer views on each video... guess I need to work harder promoting my channel if I want to get anywhere.

Anywho, nesrocks may be interested in my newest video, as it concerns his excellent hack of Super Pitfall. Like, comment and subscribe etc, it's all appreciated. :)

I may be forced to take a short break soon, but I'm working on future videos. Suggestions for good hacks to review would be great! :D

I mentioned your channel in my latest video for what is worth. I've been enjoying it so far.

Psyklax, it appears that you haven't posted a video on YouTube at all yesterday. Have you decided to take a break from the videos?
