Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Let's Play Archive - Still open for business!

My indie game is better than yours.

Welcome to the Thread!
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Welcome to the Penny Arcade Forum archive of Lets Plays! This thread catalogs Lets Plays made by members of our community (whether it be G&T, SE++, or wherever else), whether the Lets Plays are developed on the forum via threads or hosted elsewhere. If you're unaware, a Lets Play is a documenting (via video, screen shot, and maybe journal keeping) of one's playing of a video game. Sometimes they're funny, sometimes they're informative, and sometimes someone just kicks ass at the game.

As with all things on the internet, not all productions are of high quality work. While there are no promises for things promoted via this thread, I have been trying to promote an environment of constructive criticism. Be critical, but be nice. As Tube would put it, be excellent to each other.

Thread Rules & Guidelines
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

What this thread is for:
  • Asking for co-commentary partners / group commentary. As it may be hard to make this happen, I decided to allow for it here.
  • Asking for technical help. Any software / hardware involved in the LP process is up for discussion here.
    • As of July, 2013 I'm going to recommend people use Help / Advice for this. You can still ask here but over the time this thread has existed, the help for this sorta thing has been stagnant (relatively speaking). And H/A gets traffic for this sorta thing anyway.
    • Going in hand with this, I've axed the tech support section. The times I've tried working on it were never working out anyway.
  • Asking for feedback for test videos and post formats. Wanting to gauge interest in an LP is no longer a function of this thread as of Aug. 10th, 2012.
  • Providing general feedback, information, and techniques for making an LP and resources used in making LPs. If the latest version of some software or hosting service involved in LP'ing totally botches things in some manner, let us know.
  • Getting forumer LP's added to the list, old or new. I only accept completed or nearly-finished submissions. I can and will have biased exceptions.
  • Stream channel announcements. Some of our community members operate channels where they play games streaming live to the internet. These individuals are clear to use this thread to announce when they're starting up a session. I'm going to be opening a list in the near future of stream accounts, as these are growing in popularity while also serving the same entertainment value of LPs.
  • Discussing LPs from other sources on the web. Because there's some good stuff out there.
    • With regard to the list of stuff from beyond the forum; this list is something I'll maintain at my discretion, depending on the general discussion people have about 'em. If I see that something is popular (or just watch something myself), I'll add it.

What this thread is NOT for:
  • Bugging Henroid about updates! I do this on my free time, it's a volunteer service!
    • By extension, asking for a subforum for Let's Plays here. After some demand I went to Tube and made the case for having a subforum. He returned to me with an answer of no, but he digs the idea of this thread.
  • Discussing any of the LPs in our list; they have their own threads for a reason.
    • Despite this rule, PLEASE use some discretion in understanding what necro-posting is. If an LP thread has been lying still for a year or more, it's better you post in this thread rather than resurrect it.
    • I'm going to make the point here that nobody here has to like every LP our community produces. However, because we are indeed a community, I expect criticism to be a step above the normal "it sucks" or "it's shit" attitudes. If you're providing negative feedback about someone's LP, be constructive about it and do not argue with the maker. Help your community improve on things, don't just shit all over it. This is not to be confused with language use of your feedback. You don't have to be a Mr. Rogers.
  • Newly registered users pimpin' their LP's or accounts. Perspectives have shifted, and the short of it is that new users posting their LPs immediately is frowned upon (it falls under the site-whoring rule, as social-media now makes people think they are important). This is a community project at heart, not a catch-all for any content that comes our way. Having your LP listed here doesn't earn you any prestige with us or the internet. New users asking for listing will be ignored, and I don't recommend registering and immediately making your thread as your first interaction.
    • However, new users are not barred from joining in discussion in this thread or any of the listed LPs. The point is to not come to the forum just to promote yourself.

How the List Upkeep Works:
This is something I've had to change a few times over the course of the time of this thread's existence, so it may change in some way other another. The current method (as of November, 2012) is to post here and hope I notice it. PM'ing me will only frustrate me as the Vanilla forum software has a hard-to-keep-track of PM system. Further, to have your LP listed you have to be at least near completion (again, exceptions are at my discretion). If you've proven yourself to have a track record of completing what you set out to do, even incomplete threads will get listed while in progress.

Freeman's Mind -- Hear the thoughts of Freeman as he manages the Resonance Cascade. It updates quite rarely.
Retsupurae -- Not a Lets Play channel necessarily. This is run by slowbeef and Diabetus of Something Awful and offers up commentary on bad LPs out there on the net.
Freelance Astronauts -- The Freelance Astronauts hail from Something Awful, but are branching out with their very own site. The games range from classics like Lemmings, to newer hits like Resident Evil 4, and even horrible homebrew games such as the infamous Ballion.

    I Want to Make a Lets Play!
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    I've axed the tech support section of the thread as of July, 2013. It wasn't fulfilling its intended goal and I wasn't about to make anything come about from it that provided consistent, universal tech advice. But I am going to leave behind just a short list of tips about making LPs:
    • Have plenty of free time to see this through. LPs take a lot of time to do, especially to do right. Have it, or don't try.
    • Be knowledgeable about the game, highly skilled at the game, or regarded as a funny person (by judgment of your peers, not your ego). Otherwise it'll be boring. A combination of any of those things makes it all the better.
    • Don't fake reactions or lack of skill, or do what pewdiepie does. Nobody will like you.
    • Get the community involved. Unlike the other pieces of advice this isn't a need-to-do but it'll help give your LP some unique flavor. Or at least serve a specific audience and be all the more special. How you do this is up to you. Don't let it impede the LP progress though.
    • Never LP a brand new game. I've gone back and forth on this and am decidedly against it again. Please note I don't make the rules here; you can LP games the week of their release all you want, make a thread for it if you want or don't. I just feel you shouldn't and will demonstrate that by not listing the thread here until some time has passed.
    • Making an LP for a game is not a race to glory, to go in hand with the above point. You gain no prestige. None that matters at least.
    • Your first LP should be a game you're familiar with. It'll help you learn if you can manage the necessary time and involvement.

    As a general piece of advice,don't do this. (Klyka has our thanks for making a demonstration video)

    can you please remove and/or change a bunch of the 'in progress' lps to abandoned

    for instance i know for a fact that Schide's Castlevania lp hasn't been updated for going on five months now. and that's just one example, at least half the 'in progress' lps haven't been updated for half a year or more

    If not, I'll jump to it when I get back from work.

    There's a general group of folks here that do LPs, and for them I'd list in-progress stuffs. But I'm thinking that any time someone new wants in on the list, they have to complete an LP first.

    That would make things easier on you, for sure.

    I dunno. I guess it's fair, but if someone is doing an especially long LP and has shown that they're consistent with updating, I think exceptions should probably be made. Morninglord has been doing pretty good with Prototype, for instance.

    You need to overhaul the resources part a lot. Take Mediacoder off, or at least make mention of how buggy it is for a lot of people. Add MeGUI for encoding.

    Remove Photobucket from the SS hosting or bold the part about how the bandwidth issue makes it shit. Add imgur as a potential host. Put Blip higher on the list. I don't know why it's under Skype in a separated section.

    VirtualDub Mod for editing.

    Really you should just look at the SA Tech Support thread and use those resources, because I'll be honest when I read this OP it feels very second-rate. Like we have no idea how to do this. I know you linked it, but maybe make the link bigger and center or something.

    Nah, don't make an exception. I'm cool with it. I just wanted to know if it was going to be updated because thems was the rules you know. You makes the PM you gets on the list.
    If it isn't the case I can stop thinking about it and get back to work.

    Well I'm not gonna defend our tech support section, it is kinda thrown-together. Coincidentally though when I was at work today I got struck by a vision of how to format it better. And I'll be taking your notes into things when I rework it.

    if you got component out A/V cables yes it would

    or if the component out A/V cables are just like the EssThree's, then yes it would

    also you wouldn't need any specific capture for the PS1 since every 3 plays PS1 games naturally

    or if the component out A/V cables are just like the EssThree's, then yes it would

    also you wouldn't need any specific capture for the PS1 since every 3 plays PS1 games naturally

    Cool! By the way, your Nier LP inspired me to go pick it up new for $20 today :P

    Until reviews come out for that device / people here try it, I'm not gonna add it.

    And apologies for lack of updating; I intended to work on it last night, but I instead found myself with arms wrapped around my toilet bowl giving up offerings to the porcelain god.

    One of my (many) due updates has just been done. Rent's targeted list of "in progress" LPs that haven't been has been handled. And the last batch of PMs I'd received have been worked in. Also, Adus' long-standing request on the listing of GTA IV: EfLC. Again, if I missed anything please let me know.

    My next update coming in today will be on the OP; the "How to add things to the list" section is going to be changed to "How this thread works," which will include the notes from my special announcement, some rewording on things, as well as my new stipulation for newcomers to the thread (that they will be added when their project is completed). I'm also going to make a note that making bump-posts in your thread is ABSOLUTELY NOT FUCKING COOL AT ALL, which I noticed happening in one thread I checked out for its status.

    The final update, which isn't going to happen today likely, is gonna be on the tech support section (which, really, it's going to be overhauled). I'll be taking Adus' feedback into things, as well as checking if the SA Thread is viewable again (last time I checked, it wasn't).

    In the meantime I wanted to ask you guys something; how would you feel about a flagging system like SA has on their LP Archive? Which is to say, humorous / informative / challenges / etc?

    Edit - I just noticed I left Half-Life: Opposing Force up in the listing; I'm gonna leave it there for now, but it's not getting REMOVED entirely, it's gonna get moved to the list of shame. Because it has a lot of updates committed to it.

    I'd be fine with tags, but that seems like a lot of work and a lot of people to contact with the current list so far.

    Not really, the tags would just be based on our watching them. If something is often funny, we mark it as humorous.

    That works too. Still, would be more work than you think. Especially if you watch the whole thing.

    As in the post contains nothing but this:
    bump

    It's a shitty thing to do for threads in general and is frowned on. I'm making a point of it, though, because I don't want Lets Play threads here associated with that kind of behavior.

    I've made my way around bumping a thread by finding something to actually post about, and generally more than just a one-liner.

    Posting that the next update is available is NOT a bump-post, mind you.

    What if you post a new update but then make a whole new post for the same update but a different host?!

    Uh, that's fine, because you're saying that the post has been fixed.

    But nothing was broken. I'm teasing Rent for the way he posts updates which is to post blip, then make an entirely separate post for viddler.

    I don't care that much, I just find it amusing.

    Hey, whatever works. I sometimes make interim posts just for MKR's diary entries.

    huh

    what

    I am unaware of things

    EDIT:

    By the way I am learning to appreciate good screenshot LPs. They are difficult to pull off well.

    And Syphyre might come into this thread sometime; he's been fun to work with on QFG. Be nice to him if he does, you heathens.

    See it's ironic because in the LP thread you are the complete opposite of a gent

    You are a rapscallion good sir
