    Help with video!

    Hello! I'm translating a video from English into Spanish for a class assignment but I am having problems with English comprehension. Please can anyone help me with the transcription of the video? I've already done some parts but there're still some gaps which I can't complete because it's difficult for me to understand. Here's the video:

    Re: Help with video!

    I am a little confused. Are you studying English? And this is an assignment? Surely your teacher is testing your English listening skills/comprehension, not ours?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Help with video!

    With respect, if this is a class assignment, it seems entirely unfair that we would provide you with the answers and thus overstate your comprehension abilities.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    We are dealing with people brought up on video games - a knowledge of cheats and shortcuts and crib-sheets passes for expertise in this world.
