Good luck! :3
Cam tests are flawless, it's really been the sound that's been eluding me for the past month. My biggest problem has been not having a good way to record 2 audio sources at once. I found a neat little 5 channel mixer online for pretty cheap and am now borrowing a mic from one of my friends who does vocals for a local band so I figure as long as I have the mixer within reach while playing and have an ear in from it I can do major adjustments before recording and minor tweaks during.

I tend to not use "um" anyway. I've taken a few speech classes and understand that no other phrase transmits more uncertainty than "um". If anything I just need to work on probably what will come across as silence.

Thanks for the pointers.

I did a quick video test with audio recorded separately, which works for title screens, but I don't think would work too well during actual gameplay.
