Important Announcement
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
A recent overhaul has occurred within the thread list. Many abandoned or status-pending listings have been pruned. Some have been relocated to a new list (see the Tech Support post) for their own individual reasons. An explanation of the management of the list is contained therein. If an LP of yours was removed that you don't feel should have been, send me a PM, with a link to the LP in question as usual, and your explanation on when you'll be working on it or why you're temporarily unable to. I'm also instating a new guideline for status updates.

One month of no updates (which includes posts explaining why things will be / are late) from the maker of an LP will flag an LP with status pending.

One more month on top of that (for two total) will flag the thread for abandonment (it will remain in the main listing still.)

One more month on top of that (for three total) will prompt my action to either remove the thread entirely OR place it in the secondary list, depending on each individual case.

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

What this thread is for:
  • Asking for co-commentary partners / group. As it may be hard to make this happen, I decided to allow for it here.
  • Asking for technical help or feedback on test videos / testing post formats. That's a big part of the purpose of this thread, don't be afraid to ask. Just check the support section first.
  • Providing general feedback, information, and / or techniques for making an LP and resources used in making LPs.
  • Getting forumer LP's added to the list, old or new, and updating their status accordingly. This is not just for G&T; this is forum-wide, so SE++ stuff has a home here too. See below for instructions on how to do this.
  • We now also support stream channels here. If you run a stream channel, follow the guidelines for adding regular LP's to the list. People running stream channels are free to use this thread to announce when they are starting a broadcast.
  • 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. But feel free to make requests (just don't push too much on it).

What this thread is NOT for:
  • Discussing any of the LPs in our list; they have their own threads for a reason.
    • 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. If it starts to come to that, be the bigger person and simply step away. Help your community improve on things, don't just shit all over it.
  • Side-stepping talking shit about a forumer's LP or a forumer outside their thread. No drama. Don't be a dick.
    • I never expected this rule to be violated but it was, and I'm not very damn happy about it. Remember that our general rule on the forum is to not be a dick. If anyone is being one, the mods will be notified.
  • Newly registered users pimpin' their LP's or accounts.
    • This isn't to cut you out completely, but this thread is for people who take time with our community; if you want in, you have to be a member of the community, to be determined by me (the list keeper). Additionally, registering to pimp your stuff and walking away from the community is site whoring, which is an actual hard rule we have here.
  • Complaining about Retsupurae being too "mean." They're not, but if you don't like 'em, then just don't watch. The rest of us will have a good time watching stuff they produce.
  • Asking for a subforum for Let's Plays here. After some demand I went to Tube myself 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. So help me improve on things as needed. :)
As Tube would put it, be excellent to each other.

How to add things to the list:
There are two things you should be PM'ing me about for updating the thread; adding a new entry to the list, and updating the status of one. Below are what's needed for each one (this makes my life easier).
  • If PM'ing me with to add a new entry...
    • The title of the PM must read: LP Archive Update
    • The body of the PM must contain the full name of the game, the forumer behind the project, the format (video, screenshot, hybrid), and the URL to the thread.
    • If the LP is already completed upon submission, note its status to me. Otherwise it will be in progress.
    • The URL must be to the thread, not to the post. This saves me text space overall. Look at the end of the URL to see if you have it right; showthread.php?t=102474 vs. showthread.php?p=11880134#post11880134
  • If PM'ing me with a status update to an entry...
    • The title of the PM must read: LP Archive Status
    • The body simply has to include the full name of the game and the status it needs to be changed to.
    • If the status is going to yellow or orange (hiatus / on hold, or abandoned) feel free to give whatever brief description of why. This isn't necessary but it can help prevent questions from being asked repeatedly.

PA Forumer Stream Channels

Let's Plays from the Internet
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Notable YouTube Channels and Websites
SirRonLionHeart -- A FANTASTIC, ULTRA, OMEGA LP'er who is eccentric as hell.
Freeman's Mind -- Hear the thoughts of Freeman in Half-Life. It's actually better than you'd think.
ChipCheezum -- An SA member dabbling in some LPs in some form or another.
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.

Other Links
Chrontendo -- atat23 brought this to our attention. It isn't exactly Lets Play material, but it's cool enough that I think it needs to be shared. The guy behind this project is playing through all NES games, in chronological order, giving brief rundowns of what the games were like and noting their flaws and perks. Each episode contains a chunk of games from a certain date range. At the time of this link being added, the latest episode features Super Mario Bros. 3 at the end.

TGWTG Lets Play of King's Quest V -- PaperLuigi44 says, "This is one of my favourites, as Paw tackles a game infamous for unwinnable situations, BS deaths and awful voice-acting."

Let's Play Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines -- Owenashi says, "Based on a female Toreador gunslinger run. Somewhat thorough and it includes a video showcasing the other endings he didn't pursue as well as a video that runs down the playable Clans and the Disciplines in the game."

    Failed PA Forumer LP's Of Note
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    The following section is a list of LPs done by our community members that have failed for some reason or another, but have enough content or potential that I felt they needed to be kept around. The management of this list is largely at my bias' whim, so things may or may not be to your liking. It sits in the same post as our tech support / FAQ area so that they can at least stand as examples.
    Dark Messiah of Might and Magic by Mifio -- video -- This currently resides in the list because of the content done. May be disposed of eventually.

    Dwarf Fortress by Ferrus and various forumers -- screenshot -- Dwarf Fortress is a rad game and succession games aren't easy to establish with it. This resides in the list because it stands to serve as an idea for someone to pull off a successful succession game.

    Etrian Odyssey 2 by Henroid -- screenshot -- This resides in the list because I busted my ass to hammer out what I could for it, and I don't want my content lost. The project was canceled due to losing access to the TV out device I had been using.

    Fantasy General by Kayne Red Robe -- screenshot -- This resides in the list merely because of content present. May be disposed of eventually.

    Final Fantasy 2 (NA) by Owenashi -- screenshot -- This resides in the list because of the content done thus far, and also I like Owen. So maybe he can be encouraged to pick this up.

    La-Mulana by Gennenalyse Rueben -- video -- This resides in the list because of the content done thus far. May be disposed of eventually.

    Legend of Zelda, like, all of them by various forumers -- video -- I was reluctant to remove this entirely, but I'm going to have to poke through this thoroughly to decide if it stays or goes for the time being.

    The Sims 3 by Moriveth -- screenshot -- This resides in the list because of the strong ties to community members, and it is also funny and should never be lost. I may reinstate it as being "completed" because really, when does The Sims end?
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    Making a Let's Play
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    Reference: SomethingAwful has relevant information to read.
    "JUST EXPORT TO H.264/AAC IN MP4 WITH MEDIACODER YOU FUCKS"
    Getting Started:
    Allow me to start this section off with a video by Klyka, who has provided an example of things that make a bad LP video.

    Before you make a Let's Play, be sure the following is true for you:

    I have plenty of free time to see this through.
    Look, making LP's takes a lot of fucking time. You need to have it available. And the more you cut corners on video editing or writing, the more your quality dips.

    I am knowledgeable and/or skilled at the game, or I'm actually funny.
    LP's tend to follow one of these three routes. Being any combination of the above makes for a big bonus.

    I may suck at the game but I'm at least funny enough to not make this a torturous experience.
    Watching someone fail can be fucking hilarious. But it needs to be that; hilarious. If it's a torturous ride, nobody is going to watch / read. And don't fail on purpose, while we're at it.

    Community Involvement:
    A big bonus for LP's is when you get the community involved. In fact, it's not a bonus, it's part of the point of these motherfucks (some people are able to get away with it though, but they've proven why). A common method of community involvement is having people vote on any sort of open ended options there are in the game. I wouldn't recommend going overboard and making people vote on every choice you have, with say, Mass Effect or KotOR type games - that's a lot of work. You can also have the community involved simply from providing commentary for your videos. Another way is to have the community impose challenges or restrictions on what you can or cannot use. None of these are required community involvement, and if you come up with another way, more power to you.

    Don't ask for a Retsupurae treatment to your LPs. First of all, it looks tacky. Second, leave the shtick to the Retsupurae guys. It's their thing. If you want a gag track on your LP, have people with you from the start to help you with post commentary.

    Picking a Game:
    Pick a game you already know for your first LP. If you're going to do your first LP, play it safe and stick with familiar territory. People can get overwhelmed by the time these put together.

    When you pick a game to do an LP, tell us about it. Tell us why you picked it, tell us about the game. The more obscure the game, the more inclination you should have to introduce it to people. This isn't a rule to doing LPs here, but it's a suggestion that only nets positive results.

    Take your game genre into consideration. We don't want to watch all your random battles in a JRPG, and sure as fuck don't want to see your level grinding.

    Don't LP a game that is new. Give new games a couple months past the initial launch before you LP it. I can't enforce this as a rule. Think of it as a request. Give people a chance to experience the game themselves, let the game get soaked up by most people. LP's aren't a race; if you feel the need to be the first person to LP a game, something is wrong with you (word to the wise, you don't actually gain internet fame for being the first). This is also a quality-assurance checkpoint. If you want, you can be like Helloween and do your LP whenever you please and make the thread for it after some time has passed.

    Don't fucking LP I Wanna Be The Guy. It has been beaten to death and most people who play it fucking suck. If you want to be the guy, be the bigger guy and not LP it. joshofalltrades if officially our Guy, he's done it.

    Picking a Format:
    As mentioned before there are two formats to Let's Plays - screenshot and video. It's up to you what you really wanna do, but here's some things to note about each.

    ::Video::
    • Easier to manage while playing. Hit record to start, hit again to stop.
    • Captures the game audio, which can be part of the experience as long as you're not talking over important dialog.
    • Hands-free for viewing. People watching hit play and that's about that.
    • Requires a beefy computer to get done. Lots of HDD space for recorded material, and a beefier computer for computer games.
    • Don't use a camera of any sort pointed at screens. There's ways of directly capturing video.

    ::Screenshot::
    • Easier on computers; you don't need an expensive rig to pull this off.
    • Harder to manage while playing. Gotta constantly capture, especially if you're trying to get in-action stuffs.
    • No editing required. Well not necessarily. Technically you're only capturing what you want shown.
    • Can be a pain to write up those forum posts, with all the IMG tag integration.
    • Allows people to read and enjoy at their own pace.

    Picking a Commentary Format:
    This is just as important as your actual content from the game, and something to consider.

    ::Text::
    • Pretty much required for screenshot format.
    • Works well with video format, if you want the game audio uninterrupted by audio commentary.
    • If used in video, for the love of God, mind the color and font size - it has to be readable.
    • Talking Heads make text fun, but only if you're a creative writer. Gives silent characters life.
      • These can work in video too but I haven't seen it done yet; not 'til I do it myself!

    ::Audio::
    • Pick live commentary...
      • if you're good with spontaneous reaction, or simply want it there.
      • if you want an enhanced experience in general for a group if you can establish it through tech gubbins.
    • or post commentary
      • if you're bad with coming up with things to say on the spot. Scripted comments are fine.
      • if you want a group commentary session; it's easier to do as post than live.
    • Don't sing. You're bad at it anyway. That goes for humming too, it's a cop-out.
    • It'd be bad form to talk over any important game dialog going on.
    • Don't read any text dialog in the game, we can do that just fine, thanks.

    Resources for Making a Let's Play:
    Any sort of important resources for making a Lets Play can be found here. I'm also going to link Something Awful's tech support thread for LP's, since they've gone through the effort of compiling all that information (my thanks to them, if it could be read).

    Imageshack -- Image hosting service ; can be fussy or buggy
    Photobucket -- Image hosting service ; lean on bandwidth per account
    YouTube -- Video hosting service ; most popular and therefore most abused
    Viddler -- Video hosting service
    Windows Movie Maker -- Video editing software ; not the best but free

    MediaCoder -- Encoding software
    Screenshot Captor -- Image capturing / saving software ; fairly convenient after setting preferences
    IrfanView -- Image editing software
    GIMPshop -- Image editing software
    Rightload -- Image uploading software

    Skype -- Voice communication software
    Blip -- Video hosting service ; caption-only LPs not allowed ; voice commentary must run throughout

    FAQs and Program Settings:
    ::FRAPS::
    • Resource intense program; shut off all unnecessary programs while recording.
    • Be sure to check the "Hide mouse cursor in video" box in the settings.
    • "Record external input" check box is for your mic. "Record Win7 sound" box is for actual audio playing. (likely different on other OS')
    • Records 20 minutes with about 4 GB of drive space. Have space available.
    • F9 is your record start / stop button. I'd tell you what the colors mean, but joshofalltrades failed me here. He's colorblind y'know.
    • Half-video recording records game's resolution at half-size, smaller videos!
    • Probably don't want to record at less than 25 FPS; that's the point television shows air at.
    ::Video Capture Devices::
    • Pinnacle Studio 12
      • Comes with a capture card specific to it, S-Video and Composite available.
      • Max quality AVI recording at 29.97 FPS at 720x480 resolution = 70GB gives over 5 hours of recording.
      • Info provided by Kaseius.
    ::Audacity::
    • Kaseius recommends starting before your video recording software.
    • Always run a sound check before getting started.
    • Use headphones if possible to avoid feedback.
    ::Windows Movie Maker::
    • Encoding at 480p results in about 10 minutes coming to 60mb of data.
    ::Mic / Headset Recommendations::
    • Pending!

    I guess that's good enough of a post for me to make an actual reply.

    So hey the other thread didn't hit 100 pages quite yet but uh, in the interest of avoiding being possibly screwed for the next month, I made the thread already.

    There's guidelines now for getting things updated or added.

    The "making" section hasn't been updated yet; it's still sitting on my end unfinished. It's gonna be know as the Support section though. Again, thanks to the folks who've provided me info I needed to get it really rolling. Still trying to compress things but I can handle it.

    Hopefully the general format of the "OP" (three posts) makes things a little easier to get right down to and see. I know it helps ME out tons.

    This OP is OMEGA!

    Also, I have since finished the main story of the Drakengard LP and am making my way through the alternate endings.

    Needless to say, shit did indeed get stranger.

    a fifty-foot little girl

    yeah...

    Oh woops, I totally just now caught an error up in the OP already. D: Fixed though.

    Also, I wish I still had access to the DS contraption I was using for EO2, because maaaaaan I wanna do an LP of Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks so bad. This game was fucking great and I want to share it with the WORLD. Then again even if I had the equipment my PC can't record a lot 'cause my HDD sucks ass.

    @PaperLuigi; there's something nice about LPs where extra endings or events are accounted for as bonus content.

    If I ever did an LP (which I won't) it would probably be Disaster: Day of Crisis. Partly because I don't believe it ever got released in America (last I checked), and partly because I thought it was a cheesy but underappreciated game that I really enjoyed.

    We need more Japanese forumers. Mostly because I want someone to LP Metal Wolf Chaos. That game looks like the shit.

    Though I think it already was LP'd.

    He's afraid he'll get jailed. Or knows he's going to get jailed and is putting his affairs in order.

    This is his 25th Hour, or something.

    Man shut uuuuuuuuuup. <_<

    Seriously I was looking at my list and June is my one clean month infraction wise. March too technically since I got a joke infraction. I dunno what the hell is wrong with me this year. BUT ANYWAY.

    I think Klyka is the one person to not get back to me on the PMs I sent out. Everyone be sure to berate him for it.

    back to techie stuff:

    are you planning on doing post commentary or live? with live I'd be interested to see how easy it is to synch up the audio afterwards using the video from your HD recorder.



    also, subway BMT with BBQ sauce = win!

    It needs to be Scott Pilgrim related.

    EDIT:

    Fuck me, they are back! I don't know what's more surprising, that they actually listened to my request or that somebody else was checking up on them and noticed they were back!

    YouTube never sent me an email saying, "Sorry we're assholes" or anything. Huh. Wonder if I can download them all and back them up again.

    well, there are programs of questionable legality that allow you to download youtube videos

    have no idea of the video quality though
