A lot of YouTube watching gets done at the DrinkBox offices. And I mean A LOT. Sheesh. I decided to take action – and see what folks at DrinkBox are subscribed to and watching these days. So, in no particular order:
Geek & Sundry
The go-to channel for geek culture. Weekly shows with Felicia Day, Wil Wheaton, and host of Critical Role – a game of D&D played by voice actors (DM’d by Matt Mercer).
BONUS: [George watches a lot of YouTube]
Adam Savage’s Tested
Adam Savage (of Mythbusters) and co. talk tech, model and prop building, makerspaces, cosplay, and a tonne of other cool geeky stuff, with a few new videos every day.
[And if you for some reason you’ve never watch Felicia Day’s beginnings, watched The Guild . It’s great. Well, ok, it’s only great if you played a lot of MMOs]
My pick for the Blog post is Youtube channel “Beyond the Guitar”
This guy, who is INSANELY talented, picks music from games / TV / movies and transcribes it for Classical Guitar.
One of my favorites is his Castle Theme from Super Mario World:
He only has 10k followers. That makes me very sad
[Everyone, don’t let Graham be sad and make it 10001 followers]
My pick for the Blog post is the Youtube channel “noclip”
Danny O’Dwyer, known from his host and producer work at GameSpot.com, has created a crowdfunded video game documentary channel called “noclip”.
These are lovingly crafted features telling the stories behind great video game titles old and new. They have a wonderfully timeless feel to them.
This documentary on the development of Spelunky was very interesting to me:
There’s bound to be at least one story you’ll be interested in!
[Everybody, Michael is really enthusiast so you should probably listen to him]
Me says (Chris M)
Alright – well, I felt why not mix it up and have a channel not games related, but one I hold dear to my heart. Global Cycling Network is a funny group of “blokes”, who have videos on every aspect of competitive cycling. If you have a question they’ve probably answered it.
I mean, ever wonder how to ride and look like a Belgian professional bike racer? They got you covered:
[I don’t troll my own entries, c’mon]
Stay tuned for Part 2 which will appear, sometime in the future – or potentially never. xoxo DrinkBox
