As I am sure many of you know, I have an Ion Video 2 PC capture device. It was designed to record footage from old VCR tapes, but I bought it to record gameplay footage. It works pretty well for that purpose, and I have used it in the past to transfer video shot on a VHSC camera to my PC for editing. It works pretty well for both. IT is not perfectly ideal, but it works.

There is one problem, though. While it works great for that, the software it comes with has a tiny display window for the video footage. This means that I had to play a number of my Let's Plays (Such as Doom, Diablo 1 and Final Fantasy) in a tiny window. I have been wanting a better way to record this footage. Preferably, I have been wanting a piece of software that would let me stream from this device, as well.

Well, I finally found software that lets me go full screen for streaming as well as record video in a much larger window. THE software is called Debut, and it is from NCH Software. The home use version if it is, also, free to use. I used to to stream a little Gran Turismo 2 earlier.

Here is gameplay footage of me playing Gran Turismo 2 for the PSone. This was recorded from a PS2 via S-Video output in Debut. I did a little editing to it in Sony Vegas, but not much. This is just test footage to test out the quality of the recording, but I have bigger plans for this game.

Also, pardon my sucking at it. I have not played it in years. I still got first, though.

I went out and saw the Warcraft film today. Just getting to see this film turned out to be a chore. It was at my local dollar theater for all of one week, and I was busy all week. I missed it there. I had to find another dollar theater that was showing it, and I did. I drove half an hour out to see it only to be told that their projector was broken. I went to a third dollar theater half an hour from that and bought my ticket for a 9:50 showing,. I just got out of it maybe half an hour ago. Ugh. What a pain.

As a film critic, I have to admit that this film has problems. The pacing is not very good. The film feels long. Some of the action scenes are not particularly well shot. They can be hard to follow. The film does not develop characters well, either. The main reason I knew who most of these people are is because I have actually played the game. Some of the acting is a little hokey, too.

HAVING SAID THAT....as a Warcraft fan, I nerded out every time I saw something that I recognized from the game. There is plenty to see from the game, too, from locations such as the Dark Portal to Stormwind Keep to units from the game like the Gryphon Rider. There is so much cool stuff from the packed into this movie that it is hard for me to not love it despite its obvious flaws.

This film painstakingly recreates the world from the games, and it does an amazing job of it.The humans, dwarves, elves and orcs from the game are all here, and they all look exactly how you remember them from the game. It nails a lot of the lore, too. This is really the story of the first war. If you remember the original game, you will probably know a lot of what is going to happen in this film, but seeing it all come to life is just so fucking cool.

If you are familiar with the characters such as Lothar, Gul'dan, Durotan and Draka are all here, and they all look accurate to their in game characters. As a film critic, I probably should not love this film as much as I do. As a Warcraft fan, holy shit. This was awesome. If you like the games, I would recommend at least giving it a chance. It is probably the best video game movie ever made simply because you can see all the love and passion that went into it. This film is a labor of love from people that care deeply about the Warcraft video games and their lore. The rest of you might be bored by this.
