Anyone who knows Andrew and I knows that books are my thing and video games are his thing. He’s been wanting to start a video game channel on YouTube for quite some time now but everything got a bit sidetracked since we were crazy busy planning our wedding. I had gotten Andrew the game capture equipment he needed for Christmas last year so that just shows you how long this has been in the works! I’m so excited to be part of Andrew’s channel and it’s really fun to be able to collaborate with him on something that I know he loves.
I definitely consider myself more of a casual gamer. I love the old games from my childhood (which is why we’re starting with Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Quest as our first Let’s Play series), Pokemon (in all of its iterations) and anything I can play on my 3DS. I’m definitely going to be going out of my comfort zone as we continue on with new games because my gaming skills seem to have peaked during the N64 days. I’m horrible at first person shooters and other games that require me to control where I’m looking and walking simultaneously. I feel like people are going to watch our channel and think I’m great at gaming and then the second we debut a newer game, everyone will see just how awful I really am lol! Either way, it’s fun to spend some quality time with Andrew and record our conversations. I’ve always wanted to make more time to play video games so I’m excited that we now have a reason to do so!
I’m glad we waited to start the channel too because Andrew worked really hard on all of the channel art and it completely paid off. I’m heed over heels in love with his design! He made me into a magical girl Pokemon trainer<3 And he animated the opening sequence. Andrew’s brother and my brother-in-law Joe also created the music for us! (Fun fact: Joe did the credits music in my YouTube videos too!)
Anyway, here are the first few episodes of our Let’s Plays! I hope you enjoy and if there are any games you want us to play, let us know in the comments and we’ll keep a running list for future episodes!
