Yea so the Splatterhouse Quick Play is not uploading at all. It gets to 66% complete and dies every time so I’m going to re-encode it into MP4 and try again. For now enjoy our other Quick Play. Updated the section on the right to include a more recent roadmap for the site. We’re working hard for your views as usual so thanks for coming to the site!
Wow. Yesterday was the 2nd most popular day for the site and our videos so thanks to everyone who’s checking us out for the first time and sticking around. Trust me when I say that we’re working hard constantly to keep you entertained. In the next week you’ll see a couple more quick plays, another ye olde quicke playe, A video review and another pilot for a new series. After that we’ll still have 2 more series; one we’re launching this month and another we’re launching next. It will be splendiforous!
If you have any comments or anything just put it here on the site. Go ahead and friend us on Twitter. We need someone to spam Earthbound quotes at!
The Quick Plays this week were so large that they took all day today to render and convert and stuff but I don’t have any time to upload so they’re goin up tomorrow. We did a Quick Play of Dead Nation and Splatterhouse.
Now to my crazy left-field overnight shift!
Monday. What does that mean to you? It means Ye Olde Quicke Playe of Spell Jammer feat. a special guest. What’s Spell Jammer? Why an amazing DOS game that involved 256-color gradient-ing photos of people into D&D garb in outer space. It’s hilariawesome. Also really really late monday or early Tuesday you’ll be getting your hands on a Top 8 Death Animations video. It’s funtastic and some of our best work yet!!!
Aside from that, what’s new? Uh..Wednesday (early thursday) will be the regular PSN update Quick Play blowout that it usually is and we’re trying to make 2 major videos after this next one. Don’t have an ETA on those yet. Once again I’d like to stress that I’m going to work on the new site design very soon just want to get out 2–3 major new pieces of content before I focus on it. We’ve experienced some very nice growth in viewership recently and I full intend to service all of the internet’s needs (despite my own need to sleep!)
Thanks everyone. Also, friend us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/gigaboots. We need friends!
Almost done with both of the videos. The Dragon’s Lair guide should be going up tonight (which may or may not interest you all) and the first in the Top 8 series will probably go up tomorrow morning. That is all soldier!
Traffic is up a crap-ton today so that’s great. Views are also up because of our latest videos. More importantly than that shiz though is that the Top 8 work has been delayed for tonight and I’m working on a Trophy Video Guide for Dragon’s Lair. BT-dubz, if you go check out the highscores I’m in first. Also working on the script for another video going up sometime soon which is the pilot for a new series. Chances are the Top 8 will be out a great deal of time before the other one.
And ultra-most importantly! I got off from work some time a week or so from now so I can work more on the next iteration of the website. This one has always been a temporary measure (which is why our logo is nowhere to be found) and the next version will feature a lot of stuff this one isn’t remotely capable of. I’m greatly anticipating that and a possible review of Gran Turismo 5.
Thanks for the views. Spread the word.
More stuff is going to come out soon. Expect 2–3 more Quick Plays and the glitch video to be up by Thursday. We’re going to spend our time tomorrow working on our first Top 8. Awesomeness is sure to ensue.
We finished uploading some new quick plays for ya. Expect a couple more sometime around Friday (maybe sooner.) We’re spending all day tomorrow working on our content needed for 2 of our new series. We also have some other major stuff going on behind the scenes that we can’t talk about yet but we’re really excited about and a new website we’re working on to replace this one. This site is a temporary measure until we can get a design fully made for launching that we’re pleased with. In any case, enjoy the two new quick plays, expect more content very soon and look forward to the launch of two new series soon!
So we’ve decided what all we’re going to QP tonight. Donkey Kong Country Returns,
Z.H.P (next week). and Crazy Taxi (with some tips on how to be a badass on it like me!) We’re also going to try to get the glitch video up in the next 24 hours. Expect all of these vids here on GigaBoots.com in the next 24. Later!
We’re behind on Quick Plays this week so we’re probably going to upload a QP of Crazy Taxi and a hilarious video we made of a glitch that happened to us during the review process of Call of Duty: Black Ops. We’re working on new types of content and new content in general so there may not be a review up next week but there should be a new type of video that’s polished humorous and interesting (as you’ve no doubt come to expect from us.) However, the 2 “QPs” will have to wait until tomorrow at earliest as I’m still drained from the COD process and 29 hours straight of editing.
So I’ll post again tomorrow on news about those 2 videos and what-not. In the meantime, our views on COD are a little paltry so if some of you guys could do some promotion on our vids in general or that one in specific to help us compensate that’d be great! Our views are lower than we need to keep up with the cost of hosting the vids so please promote us and we’ll do our best (including not sleeping for over a day straight) to make sure you see quality content every week!
Thanks a million,
p.s. — My brain really hurts from the 29-hour marathon >_<
I should be sleeping seeing as how I just finished a long overnight shift and have a long day of GigaBoots ahead of me but the internet demands a humorous yet critical review of COD NOW so I must sate that need! I must finish this video! *cue the Guile Theme to editing montage*
COD review, up as soon as humanly possible!
So we’re still working on the COD: BO review despite me working overnight shifts and Bob not getting any sleep. We’re almost done with it so expect late late tonight or early tomorrow unless something goes horribly wrong. We appreciate all the fans who’re checking the web site for updates and we promise we’ll work on a better looking website sometime very soon.
Oh and to whoever lives in Thonotosassa, FL, I’ve lived in this state my entire life and never heard of your town. WTF, SRSLY? Also you must visit the site a lot!
Hilarious glitch occurred while getting footage for the COD review. We’ll upload it in it’s entirety sometime soon (before the review.) My work schedule has been all over the place so because of constantly changing sleep cycles I started falling asleep during footage capturing. So I’m going to sleep for a bit and then get back up around 2 A.M. for some more. This review demands to be finished and I demand so as well so I can work on the new series.
Also we’re going to put up an About section on the site sometime soon but until then know that my PSN ID is Danji and you can add me if you want. Some fans already added Bob which we use his account for our QPs that was interesting!
New Quick Plays are going up of Crescent Pale Mist and the Scott Pilgrim Knives Chau Pack DLC. I don’t know when they’ll be up (probably by tonight) but I’m converting them to MP4 right now! Also, I’ll be adding an About Us section soon. Probably sometime during/after the CoD review.
So currently I’m converting 2 more from our backstock of Quick Plays into AVIs to then be converted to MPEG-4 (having this insane quality that we do takes a lot of time and money!) But tonight Bob and I started playing Call of Duty: Black Ops. We already have some good material for the review (both critically and comedically) so that’s looking promising. Unfortunately, because of COD being a more significant game in the macrocosm of things we delayed a review of Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage for a few more days. But none of that is why I’m making this post.
We will be launching a new series or two very soon. I’m not sure which is going in what order but I’m really excited for a new type of content. We were waiting until game releases started to slow and our Video Reviews hit a level of polish that I was happy with (e.g. — transitions.) So, expect a new series from us sometime very very soon. It will be what you expect. Interesting, funny, random and a little strange.
