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!

    Godhand puts out what you put in.
    Put in effort you get awesome out of it.
    Put in nothing you get nothing. In fact put in nothing and it just downright hates you. And rightfully so.
    Wether that is good is entirely up to you. It doesn't try to cater to you.

    Mikami is actually quoted as saying he basically made a game too much like he would want to play, rather than a game that would have mass market appeal.

    Best LP decision I ever made!

    Honestly I don't know why you considered cutting out the cutscenes or the dialogue in the first place. That shit has to be seen. I had seen some Youtube clips and stuff but somehow it was even worse when seeing it in the actual game. The dialogue is like a 15 year old's fanfiction, and just as terribly composed.

    Cause I thought it'd be cool to turn it into a "proper" Metroid game.
    You know,something a bit more serious.

    But ok, I agree, this needs to be seen.

    When I'm able to get back to LPing, I'm going to have to find something to do with all these license plates.

    At least I'm playing the Thief character in QFG...

    pfft this is like your second time ever being jailed

    man come back when you have more jailings then digits on your hangs, NOOB

  • joshofalltradesjoshofalltrades His love is a prize Rantin' and RavenRegistered User regular
    Actually it's my first, and it's because of a misunderstanding, not because I was trying to be a silly goose

    At least it gives me time to prep for my classes instead of doing LPs

    you do realize that the new jailing affects nothing about your posts right, no post timer, you can still embed images, the whole shebang right

    No, I didn't. What's the point of jailing, then?

    Is there an easy way to add a "comic book" like effect to an image?

    I'm thinking of LPing Tony Hawk's Underground 2 in character as Max Payne.
    Spoiler:

  • HenroidHenroid Gibberish Cold white sand!Registered User regular
    An easy way? Not that I know of. You'd have to go through each screenshot / frame and add the comic panes manually. I know Moriveth, from SE++, was doing comic pages to do h is "LP" of The Sims, you could maybe ask him if he had some express way of doing it. Just be nice in asking.

    I'm sure there's a way to filter a batch of images. They won't all look great though.

    Yes please.

  • OwenashiOwenashi Registered User regular
    So it's been more then a week since this was released and I wondered if anyone's seen this (NSFW) LP attempt?



    Quality of the LPing aside, does anyone know if the game is indeed as hard as it looks?

  • SkutSkutSkutSkut Registered User regular
    No it's not nearly that hard, it's actually rather easy if you spent about 20 minutes with it. Hell I beat it when I was a kid with no guides or anything.

  • heenatoheenato Registered User regular
    Plus, you should have posted the Retsupurae of that video, which makes it actually TOLERABLE.

  • OwenashiOwenashi Registered User regular
    It's not on Youtube due to a couple of issues. The guys behind it could only post this preview.

  • teg5511teg5511 Registered User
    Oh god that was horrible. Reminds me of somebody I know in real life which doesn't help, either.



    Anybody mind taking a look at this and telling me if putting background music during the non-battle stuff was a good idea or a bad idea?

    Pretty certain this is why I'm not a fan of VLPs. Because people have linked me far too many "isn't this hilarious" and it's a piece of suck like that is.

    good to know you think the by far most popular, well known, and oldest lpers currently active today are a "piece of suck"

    good job!

    Took me awhile to warm up to the 'beef and 'betus, they rubbed me the wrong way at first. Of course I eventually came around, they are pretty great.

    The nostalgia critic video is... dense, though. There's just too much screeching going on for it to be legitimately enjoyable, even with the retsupurae going on overtop.

    As far as I know, slowbeef pretty much established VLPs as a genre, so he's "important" and deserves props accordingly.

    Obviously you don't have to like 'em, though.

    Can we maybe at least all agree that the Nostalgia Critic is awful.

    Because I think he is awful.

    You are literally saying that the person who fucking founded Let's Play sucks

    you should probably back your fucking statement up is what im saying


    probably should show the class all those super important, influential lps youve done

    probably should tell us about your major contribution to the lp community

    These are certainly statements which wholly and irrefutably render Zombiemambo's statement of "I do not like this guy" completely void.

    "i do not like this guy" != "this guy sucks"

    one is subjective and the other is objective

  • SyphyreSyphyre A Dangerous Pastime Registered User regular
    Pretty certain they're both subjective, as he's using the words. Pretty much the same as when I use the word "suck." When I use the word "this sucks" this is a usage referring to that I do not like it, not that it is objectively a piece of crap. The spoken language is fairly malleable, despite your leanings towards genius literary analysis.

    I like Slowbeef and Diabetus as much as the next guy, but the RP of the Nostalgia Critic LP is one of their weakest videos, in my opinion. There's just not much to say. The guy screamed a lot while playing a dull SNES game. You can only make so many jokes about that, and it's a 30 minute long video.
