Simpson, if you want help, I can see if I can't rent out the sound-booth at my school (professional quality, free of charge! :D) and then cut out waiting. Anything longer than a few minutes and people WILL tune out.

Kayedon,
I'm not sure what you are saying, but I encourage you to make whatever changes you feel would make it better. If you want I can send you the noncompressed versions. I think a torrent might be best if you are interested.

EDIT: I reread this and I sounded kind of like an ass. Please don't take it that way, I meant it because I wouldn't know what to do with a sound booth.

Was the voice work done after you played the game, or while you were playing it?


Perhaps use one of the tutorial maps for your ... tutorial. It might have a better initial setup for explaining things. Failing that, a new tutorial mission could potentially be built, but you'd have to say what was needed in it.

Lol it's fine mate. I'm just saying if you want a more professional quality voice-over instead of what you have (I haven't had a chance to listen, I was just reading previous content) that almost sounds like Sierra might've made it instead of some fan-content, I could do it.

Here is how I did the recording.
Camtasia studio captured the screen and sound on my mic.

I played and spoke what I was doing. It was done in 1 take, no do overs. Personally I think the sound quality is good, I was able to understand everything.

Yeah, I think the sound quality was pretty good. No need to change that setup.

Are there any other comments about the content?

What was it missing that you feel was important?

Do you think the average newbie would actually watch all 20 minutes?
If not what do you think would be a good target time?

I'm thinking perhaps there is some wisdom in youtube limiting videos to 10 minutes. You could perhaps have a series of tutorial videos, each focused on independent topics.

and then people like me would think "if it's complicated enough to need a ton of tutorials, it can't be much fun to play"
