So, most of my gaming time these past few months has been playing Street Fighter. I like fighting games, but I’ve never been any good at them. Street Fighter is pretty much the crème de la crème, so what better one to try and actually make an effort to become not terrible at. It’s a slow process, but I’m at a point where I’m winning games somewhat regularly against similarly skilled opponents, and I’m no longer a total newb at the games.

So, I decided to make a video of me playing it. In fact, I hope to make this a regular series of videos, with one every week or so. As I’ve mentioned before, I used to make crappy Call of Duty videos back in the day, but stopped mostly because of a combination of lack of motivation and my terrible upload speed. The latter hasn’t really changed, but I’m at a point where I sort of want to try and make somewhat regular content again.

The Salt Sessions is going to mostly be me playing ranked games on SF4, while making an attempt to articulate what I’m doing and why as I’m playing. This first episode, the pilot if you will, was mostly a spur of the moment thing I made at 3am after a few beers. It’s been a while since I’ve done any video making, so this served mostly as a test for my recording setup: I have a decent microphone, but it isn’t particularly well suited to recording while I’m in the middle of playing a fighting game.

So join me over at JeoDotMe on YouTube, a channel I made specifically to tie into this blog. I’ve mulled the idea of doing video accompaniments to previous blog posts before, but obviously never went through. Now that I want to try and make more video content on the reg, perhaps I might do that. In any case, it’s likely that you’ll see more than just fighting games on this channel in the future. In the meantime, I will (hopefully) have a new episode of Salt Sessions every weekend(ish).
