Gear: Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, Video Games.
Operation Flashpoint was released back in 2009 and it's a tactical shooter. It is very different from the more popular FPS games out there, so the audience that will play it is very different.
I enjoyed playing the game in hardcore difficulty. On hardcore the gameplay feels a bit more immersive and the checkpoints are removed, in a way dying has more consequences.
Codemasters released another tactical game called Operation Flashpoint: Red River. When I ordered Dragon Rising I also got Red River. Hopefully the game is a bit more polished than the first. I won't play those games for a while because I need a break.
For those wondering of how the videos came to be I have listed the equipment used.
How the videos came to be:
- HP DV6T QE - Gaming system with plenty of storage space.
- SteelSeries mousepad - Any mouse pad will get the job done, but this one is a bit bigger.
- Wired mouse - A wireless mouse cannot beat a wired one.
- Fujitsu T580 - Monitoring and deleting videos through network
- Secondary monitor - While editing the 1366x768 resolution of the DV6T QE is not enough.
- Bose AE2 headphones - Playing a game without good audio is such a terrible experience.
- FRAPS - Recording software for games
- Sony Vegas Movie Studio - Editing, text, and conversion to smaller files.
- Iomega Ego Black Belt hard drive - I will now delete the raw files, and save the rendered ones.
- Youtube - Hosting of videos.
- Lot's of effort and time.
The FRAPS raw files add up to about 366GB of storage. Obviously uploading 366GB of data to Youtube would be very hard with my internet connection. So I had to convert them with Sony Vegas and now their total size is about 32GB.
Thanks to Codemasters for creating Operation Flashpoint and letting me upload the videos.
