    Don't know if this is intended or not, but the non-evil character's voices occasionally sound like they're being possessed. It's hard to describe, but its really noticeable on the ferry in the first video.
    Aside from that, really enjoying the LP.

    That's an effect because of their mics. When their mics are on we hear the people talking twice because it's transmitted over their mics. At least, that's what I think is happening? I could be wrong. Don't quote me on it or anything.

    yep

    luckily starting video two i duck the audio and silence it on our commentary track during cutscenes and talky bits so it's reduced to nearly unheard levels

    and then from video six I reduce the input levels on the mic to a level where bg audio gets wiped with my noise filter I run

    Watched Ep 2, audio is vastly improved over the first video. Good banter too.

    As far as constructive criticism goes, you say 'like' way too much when you're trying to think of something to say, it would probably be a good idea to take a breath and compose yourself.

    Keep up the good work!

    Is this a humorous LP or an informative one?

    This amuses me to heretefore unforseen levels

    Anyways

    video three is encoding on Viddler right now (and taking forever and a day to upload to blip), so new video soon!

    Oh also it's nice and long to make up for the shortness of video two

    ed: I'd really like to know what the quality of the audio is for you guys. I really reduce the gain for our second recording session (that starts with video six), but that introduces a whole host of new issues (mainly that our commentary track is a lot softer than our background audio track), so I have to amplify the shit out of our commentary track and fuck with the ducking a lot to make our commentary audible.

    video seven in particular was a huge headache, and one I'm still not 100% satisfied with. When we get to it I need y'alls opinions on it so I know if I amplified our commentary enough or too much or whatev's

    Could you be more specific on what you mean?

    Is our commentary too loud or what? I assume it's that, and if so yes we reduce the gain on our second recording session (which starts with video 6)

    Seems like Episode 8 was pretty tough to balance. Rather interesting way to do this though, post commentary by re-watching what you've already recorded with someone who isn't familiar with the game.

    I keep losing this thread so hopefully this'll let me tell when there are updates.
