Jam Enslaver Plays...Shadow of the Colossus - Episode 03

After Episode 02 I was rather worried about what might happen going forward. As I mentioned in that post, the crashes on my computer seemed to be getting more frequent and I was at a loss as to what I should do, except in that I was making preparations for building a new computer.

It came as a somewhat pleasant surprise, then, that this next episode was recorded without interruption, especially as this one runs a bit longer than the previous ones have done. I'm confident that it is related to the ambient temperature at the time of recording: the warm spell that North California had been enjoying when I recorded Episode 02 had broken and the day that I recorded Episode 03 was wet and windy. The computer behaved itself and I got into a good rhythm with this episode, beginning to get into a little monologue of my thoughts on some aspects of game design that I hope to continue in future episodes.

That being said, the need for a new computer became very clear in the production of this episode, as it took over three hours to render! I'm very much looking forward to seeing how much of an improvement the new machine will bring.

The parts for the new computer will be arriving this week, and since this will be my first build I will probably wait until the weekend to put them all together. Thus I will try to record one more episode of Shadow of the Colossus on the old machine so as to have something to upload this week. It'll be the end of an era, for sure, but I'm ready for the next one!
