- This feels like a
monumental entry. I have no reservations about
saying that I feel like this 2-part story will lead to
fantastically big things. I cannot believe just
how well these videos turned out, and I actually
knew this 10 days ago when I first viewed the
footage. Oh the wait has been excruciating to start
working on these, but I knew they'd be the
hardest as I had over 2 hours alone from this
game. That's a literal FUCKTON to shoot in 8k60 Raw.
But of course when I did my first run through of
the footage I went right to the Grand Slam, rendered
out that moment and threw it in a headset. Just...
gasp-worthy. Only way I can describe it. The full
story that I have been able to piece together with
graphics and information on-screen? As I mentioned in
the last entry I actually feel guilty keeping this to
myself. It's going to be so precious to baseball fans
or any sports fans... If I owned a ball club
I would hire me YESTERDAY and beg me to document
my team like this. It's going to be so valuable to the
players IN the video... hell even the freaking
barber-shop quartet that sings the national anthem!
And my hometown Columbus Clippers! GODDAMNIT. Am
I going to have to fly my ass back there to show
them? This is going to be a clusterfuck... but once
they SEE it. The Cleveland Guardians should see
it, right? As I said in the VR180 video: a big
sports-writer witnesses this and he won't be able to
help himself. It's such an intense feeling and I'm not
even a big baseball fan. I'm the guy that watches the
last couple games of the world series... maybe.
Actually the pitch-clock? That shit is BRILLIANT. I
adored that aspect of the game. I'm actually
considering buying a Baseball videogame and getting
back into it because of that.
ABOUT GODDAMNED TIME BASEBALL.
But I digress, part one will go here.
I literally DON'T want you to press that
button. It's so worthless flat. LOL. I mean it
isn't... but it's like looking at a THUMBNAIL of a
video as opposed to watching it. That's how different
- Oh that
cliff-hanger is awful. Love it. Gonna wait a few days
before I post more. Make some people sit on that
But again, wait until you see the freaking end of this
game from the dugout. It's absolutely magic. It feels
like the culmination in everything I've been losing
sleep over all year. This is the access VR180 needed
and I sure as fuck proved the concept. Cannot begin to
express to you how difficult run & gun VR180 with
this set-up is and how EASY it would've been for me to
blow this. But I didn't. We're here.
- And once again, we
focus on how the hell to get people IN their
headsets to find this shit without sitting them down
and making them do it themselves. It's gonna be a
sports-writer. Guarantee you. I can see it clear
as day. It's just gonna be written about and covered
on a website. That's the only way people are gonna
stop EVERYTHING they're doing to set this up.
Fucking annoying, but true.
- Part 2 in a couple
days... gonna make you wait. ;-)
- PS - this is
actually a placeholder entry anyway and the video
won't be live for a bit. So not even sure why I'm
writing that. But that is indeed the INTENTION. God
The Journey is so backwards when dealing with files
