Rev Rant: the most important game of 2008

My entire schedule of free time has been borked up since I started a summer class this week, so I didn't have time to physically stand in front of a camera and record this week's Rev Rant. Instead, I recorded an audio version of the whole t...

Rev Rant: Snakes, Plants, and Difficulty

I'm making progress with these, I think, because every week I make new mistakes. First the chroma keying was bad, then the camera was too close, and this week I've put my torso on the wrong side of the frame so my left side keeps disappear...
