Game Cinema: My New YouTube Channel

I've started a YouTube channel for the purpose of recording story-based games and posting them in an episodic fashion for my non-gamer friends. To explain my thoughts behind this project, here's me from half an hour ago:

I've had this idea for quite a while, but I was waiting for Nvidia ShadowPlay to come out, which allows me to record gameplay without taking huge performance hits.

The first game I am televising is Telltale's The Walking Dead. And here is me from 15 minutes ago to tell you about it:

I'm expecting my videos to be a little raw at the beginning, but it's a part of the learning process right? For example I have learned that ShadowPlay records in 3D when I play in 3D, so I have to turn that off if I want to be able to edit it at all. It also records Steam popups, so I need to remember to go offline in Steam before recording from now on. This won't stop achievement notifications to pop up though.

Of course I want to make sure that I televise games that you guys will enjoy! So go pick out a game you would like to see next! Obviously it helps if it is on PC, and it would be best if I already own it.

Oh, and as all the YouTubers say, likesubscribefavoriteshare. Seriously though, subscribing is a great way for you to make sure you don't miss any episodes, and please do share with any friends who would be interested in this kind of thing.
