Xbox 360: Lost Planet - Kill Giant Moth
Lost Planet is an awesome game for the Xbox 360. This is me killing the Giant Moth for which you get an acheivement. The game really comes into its own when playing online multiplayer, but that's a story for another blog entry.
Killing the Giant Moth is optional. The best (and only) way I've found to achieve this is to grab the laser gun just before you get to the top level. The Moth's vunerable spot is its abdomen. Its edited out but I missed 3 times in this try. I find it best to aim for the head when it gets close, that way the shot should hit it in the right spot as it flies by.
This is my second attempt at putting action from my Xbox on YouTube. Last night I used my Panasonic Lumix camera to record the action. While it saved any messing about with my Xbox 360 cables the resulting video and audio quality were poor while the Lumix's native MOV format is useless to my video editing software on my PC. Tonight's efforts were much more successul by piping my Xbox 360s video and audio direct into my PC. I had to switch down to TV mode and you'll notice the aspect ratio is quite right on the resulting video. I'll be looking into this later. The action was recorded direct into my editing software allowing me to edit, add transitions and title the video. I'm using Pinnacle Studio 9 which came with my capture card.
