      PhoenixFilms Community Hunter, Austin

      Hey guys, my name is Phoenix. Over the summer of 2015 I was an intern at Rooster Teeth, mostly in live action, but I also helped edit with RT Games, a couple podcast Let's plays, and Kdin and Lindsay graciously let me do a first pass edit of a couple GTA Things to Do's.

      Since leaving Austin, I've started my own channel. I don't have a lot of subs, but I've been posting daily videos to the point that I now have over 100 videos on my channel. I would like to start making some Community Hunter videos as well, but my style is more Let's Plays, at least on my channel. I'd love to start with maybe a This Is in Just Cause 3, whether it be making the video itself or just co-commentating with someone if anyone is already working on it. My skype is phoenixfilmsj79 and that is my twitter handle as well. If you're interested in co-commentating, or just having me in the co-comment chair, let me know, I'd love to get started on CH.

      You guys can check out my videos at www.AshesRisingGaming.com (links to my channel since I don't have a custom url yet). I have a blue yeti mic and I'm constantly making videos for my channel, but I'd love to make things for Community Hunters as well.

    • Tales of Zestiria - Normin locations guide

      in Forums > Tales of Zestiria - Normin locations guide | Follow this topic

      PhoenixFilms Community Hunter, Austin

      Hey guys, I'm looking for somebody to help me out. I'm currently playing through Tales of Zestiria, recording whenever I find a Normin (tiny little fucks who increase certain equipment stats as he game goes on. It's Japan, don't ask questions). If anybody else is playing this and recording, let me know, I don't know how soon I can get all of them and any video sent to me showing gameplay of the Normin's location would help a lot in me putting together that video for me to move into editing and co-commentary. My skype is phoenixfilmsj79 and my twitter handle is the same. Thanks!

    • My 100th video on my channel

      So it's been about three months since starting my channel, and here I am with my 100th video!


    • What I've been up to... Youtube channel

      PhoenixFilms Community Hunter, Austin

      So I haven't been updating here as much as I should, but man, I've been busy. Not just on work, but on my own YouTube channel. Tomorrow I'll be uploading my 100th video on my channel. But why wait, here it is posted on this journal, aren't you guys special.

      But seriously, it's been a ride so far. After finishing my internship at Rooster Teeth I knew that it was what I've always been looking for. It was the most fulfilling job I've ever had, and the most rewarding. It's what motivated me to start my own channel. Specifically, it was Jeremy's own channel Dooley Noted that I took inspiration from, being able to work and make videos.

      So as an update, showing you all the best of what I've got so far, I give you a link to three videos. (Click the thumbnails to view the video, for some reason I can't embed on this site)

      First the first highlight video I made a while back to celebrate the first month of uploads:

      Here's today's video where I started experimenting with a VS style tournament bracket, similar to Achievement Hunter's:

      And finally, my 100th video, Highlights #2:

    • I'm now a part of the Fullscreen network

      Hey guys. So I've kinda stopped spamming my profile here with my videos, cause that was kinda a bad idea. I will be posting important things here, however. And as far as important things, this seems to be one of them... I'm now a part of the Fullscreen network. My gaming channel, Ashes Rising Gaming, is now a part of their network going forward.

      Slowly but surely I'm growing the channel, and I'll be releasing new videos every day. Currently I'm doing a play through of Layers of Fear if you want to see me scared out of my mind.

      So yeah, go subscribe to me on YouTube. I've got a backlog of videos I'm going through intermixed with newer, funnier stuff coming up (even though it was just a few weeks ago, the earlier stuff is noticeably not as good). I've done a few more collaborations with my friends at Gaming Under the Influence including a series of hilarious Worms Battlegrounds videos.

      Brawlhalla
      Phoenix is joined by the guys at Dos Muchos Games, Gaming Under the Influence, and Games of Wrath for some couch play of the new indie brawler, Brawlhalla, a game that was on the show floor at RTX. We talk about Lord Xenu and Super Saiyan erections. It's one of those kinds of nights.

    • Review - Dragonball Z: Resurrection of F

      1 year ago

      PhoenixFilms Community Hunter, Austin


      DBZ_THE_MOVIE_NO._15.png

      So before I get into the text portion of this, I should link you to the video review I did of this. The video reviews are going to be my primary reviewing medium from now on, I think. So yeah, take a look!

      https://youtu.be/p5L4ewbUYLU

      Dragonball z Resurrection of F is the follow up to 2014's excellent Dragonball Z Battle of Gods, Battle of Gods was, in my opinion, the definitive DBZ movie. It had all the elements that made fans from all walks of life love DBZ. It had funny moments, great characters that all had their time to shine, a great villain, and awesome fights. Ressurection of F follows that in spectacular fasion...

      Or at least that's what I'd like to say... Let me be clear, I enjoyed this movie... just not as much as I wanted to. I grew up watching Toonami on cartoon network, and by extention, DBZ. Watching anything DBZ takes me back to my childhood, so I can forgive a lot, maybe a lot more than I should. But the one thing I have to remember is, this is a show made for kids. Sure it has parts in it that pander to the older audience, but at it's core, it's still a shonen series.

      So in Ressurection of F, Frieza is brought back to life using the dragonballs and it's up to the Z fighters to stop him once again... ok, so maybe just a select few of the Z fighters... Unlike Battle of Gods, most of the characters don't get anything to do in this. Instead we're forced to watch a new annoying character from one of Toriama's past works take up a place that should have been filled by, oh, I don't know... anybody else...

      But back to Frieza.... ok, I need to stop here for a second... Since Goku defeated Frieza in the series, he's faced down the Androids, Cell, Pikkon, three forms of Majin Buu, and a freakin god. Why are we expected to just accept at face value that Frieza has increased his strength so severely in a short time of being revived that he could be a threat? Maybe I'm being too critical. In the movie, it's explained away that he already knew Beerus and Majin Buu were more powerful than him, and that Frieza had never trained, even once, all of his life, so once he got a little training in, he could be powerful... but... as powerful as Super Saiyan God 2 Goku? It's... really stretching it...

      I wish we had seen more of those new Super Saiyan God forms from both Goku and Vegeta, but they just kind of transform into them like they've had it for a while. But what really dissapoints me is how they turned Battle of Gods' best aspect into this movie's worst aspect... Beerus. Beerus is a great character. In the DBZ universe, he's the God of Destruction, and very definitively chaotic neutral. He takes no part in the fights of either the heroes or villains and is really far more interested in eating all different types of foods from all of the universe. He was a great presence in Battle of Gods, neither villain or hero, but a grey area in between that takes no part. But in this movie, he and his assistant Whis take all of the tension out of everything. It's not just them either. There's never any threat. Even if Frieza beats Goku, Vegeta is right there in the wings, and even if he somehow beats him, then there's Beerus and Whis. This is a genuine problem with DBZ. The heroes are now way too strong. They don't have anyone left that can really stand against them. For crying out loud, they are now literally Gods.

      One last thing that bothered me is the over reliance of cg in this movie. Pretty much whenever something complicated happens on screen, the nice 2d images are replaced by cg, and it is waaaay too noticeable.

      The best thing about this movie though is the dub. These guys are absolutely killing it in their roles, and why wouldn't they? They've had these characters for almost two decades now. They have perfected DBZ in english, so much so that I had no interest in seeing this movie until it's english dub came out. Notible mention goes to Chris Ayers as Frieza. In my mind, his voice is the definitive Frieza voice, the perfect amount of arrogance, annoyance, evilness and spite.

      I'm gonna be honest, I'm really happy that there's new DBZ. Keep it coming, I say... but this just seemed like a bit too much. I think it's proven that DBZ needs some new threat that isn't just a stronger version of a previous villain... sorry Frieza...

      SPOILER AHEAD: Seriously?! A tiny laser sniper took out Goku, I'm calling bullToriyama!

    • Testing a Let's Play format

      I recently got a new mic and Windows 10, so I thought I'd make a Witcher 3 gameplay video by streaming my xbox to my laptop and capturing the footage there. Seems to work pretty well. Not as well as an ELgato, but still pretty good.

      Right now this video is unlisted, but take a look and let me know if you'd like to see me make more.
