    Sucks that your IWBTG Let's Play got screwed, hopefully you can get it unbanned. It was a real good watch.

    As for VVVVVV, like the other's said, that Text-to-Speech adds a lot, and fits so well. Great idea on that! Will be looking forward to the next part.

    Part 2 is uploaded and is processing now. I went ahead and added the links to the OP, including the download location.

    Excellent! I've played parts of this game, but the TTS makes watching it so much better.

    There is no space at the top of my sig :?:

    Also, maybe when I'm done with my blind run-through I'll go back and pick up the crap I missed because I wasn't looking at a walkthrough

    Nice LP, and fun to watch/listen to you die.

    Small complaint, try and keep your cursor out of the recording field though, That little dot on the video annoys me for some reason

    Oh, hey, I didn't have to wait too long for Part 2. Very very nice job on "I'm Sorry" and "Please Forgive Me". I haven't played the game, but, well, that looked difficult enough to get on a few tries, much less one.

    Sorry about that. My old recording software got rid of the cursor by default, and I'm still not used to FRAPS. I'll try and remember to move it next time.

    FRAPS leaves in the cursor? That's...odd. You'd think more people would have complained about that.

    New video on the way. This one is over 23 minutes long! This is where the language starts to get too much for little ears.

    Strap yourselves in for a bit of a marathon. I wanted to cut it in half but I realized how much god damn trouble that would be and decided to just make this a long one.

    This video contains the dreaded Veni Vidi Vici.

    Loving this LP, especially the text-to-speech (I would've recommended MorphVox for serious stuff, but the Microsoft Sam style just fits perfectly).

    Also, the music to this game is brilliant. There's definitely something about SID/MIDI backing that I like (FFVI in particular was a great example of this).

    Okay, it's uploading now. Blip says it'll be about an hour and 20 minutes.

    Lots more text-to-speech dialogue in this one. Also, I'm pulling a retcon of sorts; Vitellary and Vermillion are switching voices. Upon reflection I decided that the voice I originally picked for Vermillion sounded kind of like the scientists from Half-Life, so Professor Vitellary gets that one instead.

    Okay, part 3 is up for download only. They're still converting the video for online viewing on their end, so it's completely out of my hands, but if you feel like downloading a >23 min. long Let's Play video, go for it!

    Just in case you don't feel like navigating back to the OP, here is the link to download.

    Man, it was a lot of work too

    I know more people are watching it than are commenting because there are over 150 views today alone, but I wish those people would leave me some notes here

    Even if it's "This sucks gonads dry", so I could know what to improve

    Ok, here's one, make sure that you die before you make a cut in the death montages. A few times you started halfway through a jump, and went to the next cut for seemingly no reason.

    It's because I couldn't see the preview window in my editing software when I made those cuts. It'll be better next time, because I'm returning the shitty software and going with something else. It took hours to get the thing rendered and uploaded so I didn't want to go back and make minor adjustments like that in favor of getting it out there tonight.

    Thanks for the criticism though. Keep it coming, hopefully there's something I can fix that I wasn't aware of.

    "You're a normal trombone! Kind of...like the rusty one. But not as bad." Hahaha.

    The death montage was hilarious. Glad to see its return. I don't really mind the weird cuts but, yeah, if they could be deaths instead, then go for that.

    Look at it this way: the stuff I cut out of there is boring fluff, even if the cuts themselves aren't perfect.

    Hopefully they will be soon.

    Just now caught up on this and I'm loving it. I laughed so hard at the "can't hit the checkpoints" part that I woke my sister up upstairs. Will definitely be watching the rest, you are a soldier.

    Watching the latest set. Laughing, having a good time, marveling at skill. Also hoping the kiddos are in a soundproof room far away from the computer room.

    Watched the first 3 sets last night. You have cemented that this is not a game for me despite loving the aesthetic and the gameplay premise. I can't believe some of the things they're asking of you and (after a little swearing) you're actually doing them.

    Really enjoying this so far. I can safely say that I would never buy this game simply because I would be guaranteed to have the neighbours set the cops on me for extreme use of bad language. I do like the text-to-voice thing. Very novel.

    As a final note, be cautious with Blip. From what I hear, they can be a bit weird when it comes to LP's. Sometimes they're okay with them and sometimes they aren't and the criteria seems to be somewhat random and changes from day to day. Hopefully you won't have any problems with them.

    So if you really want to bring the bad language, I suggest trying to get more than 15 seconds in the Gravitron.

    You know what, we need some community involvement in this LP.

    I'll come up with contests as the thread goes, and whoever wins each contest will get a point. Whoever has the most points wins. Simple, right? I haven't decided what the reward for winning will be. I'll figure it out when we get there.
    This first contest:

    VVVVVV slashfic!

    The first and only rule is that you can't break any normal PA Forum rules. So no pictures of pixel nudity, please.

    Other than that, feel free to slash VVVVVV with whatever other fiction you feel like. Keep in mind the goal here is humor. You can go for that with an otherwise well-written, taking-it-way-too-seriously entry or writing it in the familiar typo-ridden style that most slashfic comes in. It must be semi-readable, though, and if you go for the latter style it should add to the humor, not distract from it.

    Video entries such as flash movies are acceptable also. Be creative!

    Oh, one other thing. I will be judging the competitions, unless I state otherwise. I'll gauge the general reaction to each entry and go from there.

    Write your entry and then copy/paste it into the reply box after a !Entry, so it will catch my attention.
