Gaming Videos: A Playlist

I’ve decided to start putting all of the Gaming videos I make in a single playlist. It’s curious that as a result of my review project, I’ve found interest in and comfort with the “let’s play” method of going through the game. The terrible thing is that I’m terrible at it, and my microphone is awful, and, well, it’s just really rough. But why not contribute to the swamp of video content with my own, rough and weird recordings? You’ll find them in the playlist below. So far I have the original Call of Duty project description, the Call of Duty let’s play, and (uploading now) the Call of Duty: United Offensive let’s plays (parts 1 and 2).

In other news, I have yet to start Call of Duty 2. But it’s coming. I promise [myself].
