It is done! Let's Play Bastion [No Commentary] gameplay video series is complete, edited, uploaded and published. About 4 hours total in video split up between each level and trips to The Bastion (home base) is what it's summed up to. However, keep in mind I left the game credits in the final video.

Why? Pretty simple really. Most games have 2 basic things:
Going on a week into recording and publishing my game time, I’ve found it’s a lot more work than one would expect. Then again, I am doing all the footwork myself so far. Developing the site...
Last night was the first full length live stream via Twitch on my channel which everyone should follow! So click here and Minecraft survival multiplayer server and we got a nice jump on things in our new world that began with selecting a primary location for our base. A decent start even with my ADHD while -- SQUIRREL! -- digging holes and punching trees.
