    I'm more excited for this LP than I sound in the first few videos. I was feeling sleepy that day.
    Oh Rent I wish I was a bro of yours so we could bro together in Bromania

    In person he's about as brotastic as Broteus, an early Greco-Broman god of light beer. A lot of the raw brochismo is lost in transmission. Style keywords for this LP include: chill, natty, sick, party bus.

    Oh god Rent I never knew you were such a weeaboo.

    I don't get what the fuck all is happening right now, but I liked how you explained the mechanics of the gameplay pretty thoroughly.

    I've been thoroughly interested in this game since I heard people praising it in spite of the horrible reviews by the reviewing reviewers.

    Also, Bullet Witch was terrible. I tried desperately to like it. I really did.

    He's not. They did about 2 hours on GTA and then 4 hours of Nier because he said he wanted to do two weeks at once. So really it's his own fault for wanting to go that far ahead!

    Also this thread is up to 800 views in a day and the GTA thread isn't even at 400 after a week. :(

    Also there's gonna be a new thing in this LP

    The reason I titled the episodes the way I do is after the official names of songs on Nier's OST

    so, when I post an update I will now post the youtube link to the song that the Ep is named after

    so far we have had Snow in Summer:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzDx3PCbXig

    and Village (aka THE BEST GODDAMN SONG IN THIS GAME HOLY SHIT IT IS SO FUCKAWESOME)

    seriously listen to this fucking song

    Is there any possibility for you to compress the voiceovers, so that they don't swing so much in volume? That would probably also make it easier to mix.

    The true Demon's Souls sta...wait

    WAIT

    WAIT A MINUTE

    Couple of things:

    The commentary has slightly better audio quality: Earwig was actually audible, but as Visti said it seemed you were moving back and forth or something.

    There was like 30 seconds of blank screen you didn't cut out at the end of the video. No big deal, but PROFESSIONAL PRIDE MAN.

    so rent how would you compare nier to, like

    yakuza 3 on the ps3?

    or how would you compare it to, say, tetris?

    would you consider a pizza to have better gameplay or graphics than nier? i really val

    ue these comparisons

    As someone who has never seen or played this game, I watched the unabridged opening video and I don't have any idea what could be considered spoilers because it all has no context. Not a big deal in my opinion.

    never played yakuza 3

    tetris is the pinnacle of videogame storytelling so it's just unfair to compare NieR to it

    the pizza, of course, is less delicious than a well-baked copy of NieR, although the taste polygons of your average sausage and pepperoni is much higher

    Or you could make gaudy and needless fast-forwarding sequences and cuts of you killing sheep after sheep.

    But yeah, this LP will get old fast if you don't cut out farming/backtracking/talking to villagers you already talked to.

    yeah

    Also I'm probably gonna start putting all the non-main plot related stuff (like episode 7 which is basically all sidequests and talking to NPCs) into their own videos and mark them so you don't have to see them

    Zen's right, the score to this game is fantastic so far. And the graphics aren't as big a deal as I was lead to believe, the game looks fine. Good LP so far, Rent, only issue is the volume, but sounds like you're taking care of that. I like that you'll be separating the side-quests.

    I actually like "The Incomplete Stone"!

    The audio commentary volume is still pretty wacked. I don't think it's something compression's going to fix. It's just the mic you're using is probably highly directional. At least the commentary volume is even, just on the low side, so a bit of a 50% volume boost for the commentary should fix everything.

    Could you give a brief description of each vid you post in the op? I'd only be interested in watching you play through the bosses but not any of the inbetween videos.

    Maybe I'll watch more when SPOILER joins the party.

    I love the first of those songs you posted, but I love it moreso when you're actually in the shrine, and the background percussion fades in/out depending on whether you're fighting.

    Seriously, the sound team for this game deserves some fucking awards.

    That was the best part - how the music really does weave into everything.

    I'm not sure if you highlighted it in the Lets Play's Rent (Im going to watch them after I finish my B run, hopefully tonight) - but my favorite touch in the game is how the vocal track in the village comes in and out depending on where Devola is sitting playing it.

    It was so cool when I naturally stumbled upon that. I ran up the hill and heard a vocal track and really loved it. I continued on and it faded out. Weird. Later I ran back and it came back. I stopped in my tracks and looked around trying to figure it out, and then I saw her sitting playing guitar. I approached her and started talking to her, and the vocal track stopped. That's when I realized she was actually singing it.

    It was really, really immersive.
