In September 2015, I embarked into the strange and fantastic world of gaming video creation, mostly thanks to Virtual Bastion, as we had decided to start up a YouTube channel some months earlier. Here I’m forming an archive of links to those videos on YouTube, so I’ll be adding to it as regularly as I can remember. Below the section of VB videos, you’ll find links to the videos that I’ve created for my own “channel,” which is used in the loosest sense of the word. Click away for general entertainment and (mostly) good times!
