Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is available from midnight on Tuesday 13th November, 2012. What better way to get ready for the game than a little Road to Commander series from the original Black Ops?
Black Ops RTC Episode 45: A YouTube Conspiracy
In this episode I’m playing solo and hop into a game of 6v6 Domination on Stadium. At the start of the video I manage to complete the Shotgun Berserker challenge but my game falls apart no sooner than I have called in my Attack Dogs. Oh well, it’s more about the commentary.
Originally I intended to defend YouTube, which has come under some criticism of late from bigger channels who claim that “broken sub-boxes” are making their lives difficult. However, whilst I was recording the commentary I came up with a theory that might explain why YouTube allows it to happen.
What is an RTC?
A Black Ops RTC, or Road To Commander, is a video series in which every game from level zero to level fifty is posted. For my own RTC, games will be posted with a mixture of commentaries, live commentaries and live team communication.
How I record Black Ops gameplay
Black Ops has a built in Theatre Mode but unfortunately it only allows you to upload clips up to 30 seconds in length. If you want to start recording full length Black Ops videos you’re going to need a capture card.
There are loads of capture cards out there but I went for the AVerMedia Game Capture HD because it has built in storage, which means there’s no need to hook up my PS3 to a computer when I play. To see how it works, check out this review by JSHD.
My set-up for recording commentaries and live team communication is pretty simple. I just plug the USB portion of my headset into a laptop and choose an appropriate recorder.
