StarCraft 2 Walkthroughs Complete!

It took almost half a year, but the StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty campaign walkthroughs are finished! I'm actually really stoked about that. :)

This allows me to now focus on other things such as StarCraft 2 multilayer and Black Ops. I hope you guys enjoyed/were helped from the walkthroughs. To my knowledge, Vigil Gaming is the only channel to do a complete walkthrough of every single mission in the game in HD and with commentary.

Black Ops PC + Poll

Hey everyone it's Mike!

If you read my update about Black Ops being barely playable I have some good news for you all. I didn't have much to do right now so I decided to Google some Black Ops performance issue fixes and I found some that I did and the game now runs MUCH more smooth than it did. I did still get some bad freezing going on but nothing compared to the amount I had before (every 3 seconds and every time I shoot). Now it seems that I only freeze up real bad in an open area or where there is a lot of people. This is, however, all based off one game on Launch. The link to these fixes will be at the end of this post.

To the poll results! Last week we wanted to know: "What was the first gaming console you played?" It turns out that 42% of you (3 votes) had your first time with NES or N64. The other 14% (1 vote) was on PlayStation. SNES, A Sega Product, Dreamcast, Computer and Other all got 0 votes. This week we want to know "How much time per week do you usually spend gaming?" with the following options: "1-3 hours", "3-6 hours", "6-9 hours", "9-12 hours", "12+ hours". Be honest. No one is going to judge you! This poll ends on Friday, December 3, 2010!

Mike Update For Black Ops

Hey everyone! It's Mike. :)

I just wanted to inform you all that I probably won't be posting much or any Black Ops gameplays for a couple months just because my computer can't even run the game that well. My processor and video card are outdated and are causing me to freeze up with every shot I take and I get an average of sub-10 FPS as I play.

This wouldn't be that big of an issue if I weren't planning on finally buying a laptop on Boxing Day (a Canadian thing a couple days after Christmas where everything goes on sale). I need to save my money for that at the moment. Now I'm hoping I can get a good laptop for around $500-$600 which would leave me with about $100-$200 in my bank account which would be a good start for the upgrading I need to do.

The video card I'm planning on is, at the moment, about $130. However, I'm probably going to have to dish out some more money to buy a new power supply to support the card. I haven't bothered looking in to the prices of those but the last one I got was like $50 for a 500-600 watt or something like that so we'll see. Now if all luck isn't on my side I'll also be forced to buy a new motherboard which is probably like another $100. But I did talk to my brother about it and he said I probably wouldn't need a new motherboard. Probably. Let's hope not.

But as of now, I'm basically playing on really small servers on small maps trying to enjoy the game as little as I can. This is the only time I'm ever going to envy console users. Screw hardware updates!
Remember though, this does not affect any other games I've been posting on.

Thanks for reading! Peace!

Mike Update

Hey everyone it's Mike!

I just wanted to post an update about me and videos and what you can expect from me.

I'll start off with StarCraft 2. I have beaten the single player and have everything rendered and ready to upload but I want to push out some Black Ops videos first. I might post a couple of the walkthroughs this weekend. There is a total of 5 levels I have left to post which is 12 files overall. I also have some multiplayer games I still need to record that I'd like to post for you all, including a 3v3 miner rush in Bronze League from like a month ago.

In terms of Black Ops you can definitely expect gameplay from Sgt. Pepper, Sw1tch and I. My gameplays, of course, are on PC and recorded using Fraps so pardon any choppiness. Some of you may have been lucky enough to watch the Famas on Cracked gameplay I posted but for some reason the video was only 5 minutes on YouTube but 7 minutes in reality so the entire game didn't post. That was a decent game and the video has been giving me constant issues so I've just decided to trash it. I do, however, have a gun game video on Villa waiting to be uploaded as well as a Sticks & Stones gameplay I still need to record. I'm playing the game quite often so you probably won't be seeing a shortage of gameplays from it.

Medal of Honor I still play but not as often. I'll try to continue getting gameplay for it but it's a game with like 10 maps and 3 classes with only 1 gun swap. There's only so much you can post without repeating yourself, unless you get an amazing game.

I know I haven't done a Left 4 Dead 2 Mutation video in forever but starting tomorrow, if there even is a new Mutation, I'm going to start them again. The reason I stopped initially was because I was doing other things Fridays so I just didn't want to or feel like doing the Mutations. To be honest, I haven't even played Left 4 Dead 2 since the week The Sacrifice came out, I think.

Counter-Strike Source: I've really had an urge to make some sort of gameplay video for CSS so I might play it a little this weekend and get some footage which is hopefully good enough to post.

Day of Defeat Source I also haven't played in a long time and don't really feel like playing it so there's a good chance that'll be going on the Inactive Games list but probably not forever.

Finally I wanted to address anyone's wonder about Half-Life 2 walkthroughs. I know in the past I said I definitely would do a walkthrough for the game but since then I've changed my mind and don't want to, at all. This may change with the announcement of Episode 3 (within the next year to 20 years, depending on what Valve's feeling like). But after the StarCraft 2 walkthroughs I've really grown un-fond of walkthroughs. :)

But that's it. Hope I answered any questions you all had. See ya!

Black Ops

Hey everyone it's Mike!

I just wanted to inform you all that Sw1tch, Sgt.Pepper & I all currently have Black Ops. I just got mine today and am installing it at the moment. You can definately expect gameplay from multiplayer and hopefully single player (if Fraps doesn't bring my FPS down to a crawl) walkthroughs. Really looking forward to playing!

New Uploaders?!?

The poll has spoken.

Last week we asked you all "Should Vigil Gaming recruit more uploaders?" with the following results: "No" with 42% (3 votes) and "Yes. Go Machinima on us" and "A Few" both receiving 28% (2 votes). Personally, I'm happy that No won because inviting more uploaders would be a tedious and frustrating process. However, that's not to say that more uploaders can't be coming down the pipes in the future.

This week we want to know: "What console do you prefer to play?" with Computer, XBox 360, PlayStation 3 and None of the above as your options. This poll ends on Friday, November 12, 2010!
