Nintendo Direct 4-12-17 reactions

Next month marks the 5-year anniversary of NFC (whoa). In those (almost) 5 years, we’ve covered quite a few Nintendo Directs. <cue dramatic music> but never <striking image> ~like this~.

Yeah so we did a video thing.

In lieu of a proper podcast episode, Lindsey and I instead hung out on a couch, watched and discussed the Direct, and then gave some final thoughts immediately after. All on video!

Then, I tried to put it all together.

As a video novice trying this for the first time, there was naturally some good and bad.

The good:

It exists. I mean, the goal was to record a video of us watching and discussing the Direct, and that’s what this is.

The bad:

The biggest, and most noticeable issue is the gradual audio delay. Around the halfway point, our audio begins desyncing (or something) and not aligned with our lip movement. It’s dreadful to look at, but even after some research I still have no idea how to fix it, so I didn’t want to just sit on this video until a solution came to me in a vision or something.

Most of the issues related to the content itself to me stemmed from our relative inexperience with this stuff and the one-take improvisational nature of the production.

Hope you can enjoy the video despite these issues! Check it out below:
