Ok. About a month ago I completed an absolute beginner’s introductory video to Third Strike. The specific focus was to highlight risky gameplay and to show how badly that gameplay would fair against a competent opponent. I play new players often and I see this to be the single biggest failing amongst newcomers.
I’ve been sitting on the video for a long time, with the intention of adding post effects, fades and so on. To cut a long story short, this hasn’t happened. I wasn’t able to find the time or the tools to polish the video to my satisfaction, so I’m just going to release it ‘as is’ and leave fancy video editing for anything I produce in the future.
The video is somewhat raw, but the content should be helpful to new players in learning the basic. There are no character specific sections, just the fundamentals. If you could find the time to post any feedback, it may be useful if I ever choose to add further videos of a similar vein.
