The Let's Plays Thread

Postby robybang » September 16th, 2011, 7:42 pm

Anyone here like/do Let's Plays? They're basically recording yourself playing a game while giving commentary.

I mainly watch Pushing Up Roses LPs of edutainment games as well as Chip Cheezum and Slowbeef doing Retsupuraes (which make fun of other LPers bad commentaries/video quality). As for doing an LP, I've thought about it and have the stuff I need to make one, but I don't have the time and would have to think of a game that would be interesting to watch and I could give commentary of.

He's only Let's Played one game to my knowledge (not counting when ALL of Team Fourstar plays games online together), but Lanipator Let's Played "Amnesia: The Dark Descent" and I LOVED every minute of it. He was literally not the slightest bit scared of this game, and did nothing but have fun with something that is clearly supposed to be mind-cripplingly traumatizing. XD He's planning on playing the DLC that came out for it and I am SO excited for that.

The Dark Id has it down pat and can turn even shitty games into AMAZING LPs. There is an amazing LP of FF13 in progress if anyone is interested, basically two guys (who decidedly are not the target audience of most JRPGs) are going through it blind, it is amazing.

(I got a SomethingAwful account just to watch those damn LPs)

EDIT: Here is an archive of COMPLETED LPs that are of average to awesome quality: Archive here.
EDIT2: The archive I linked is only of LPs from the SomethingAwful forums.

Chuggaconroy, Nintendocaprisun, Yogscast, Two Best Friends Play (though I don't know if you'd call that an LP??), and I've also watched Lani's Amnesia LP, and I really liked that as well!!!

I recommend Kikosia on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/user/Kikoskia). He's witty and British. Wittish.

Me and Bowserknight do one where he'll pick a secret game for me that I know next to nothing about and the game will serve to infuriate me with difficulty.
You hear a lot of hammering on the keyboard.

Two episodes so far but I should have more up pretty soon.

I'm still trying to get one together. It's of Fire Emblem.

I won't post a link until I update it again.

As for my favorite LPers, my bro Littlekuribohimposte is cool, um......Datai, and CollectiveSoul are some others I enjoy.
Mageknight and McGammer too.

I have done quite a few LP's myself! (YouTube username "drakelord56").

I have just finished Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and absolutely wrecked everything.

I've never really watched LPs before, but I read somewhere about Sonic 2006 being like a bad sonic fanfic, with this LP linked http://youtube.com/watch?v=mq6U6rBF8kk

Almost finished it (I had it playing mostly at a corner of my desktop, like tv background noise). I think the combination of me having never played this game before and it being so bad and watching them slowly lose their sanity made it quite entertaining. definitely gonna check other pokecapn LPs afterwards

I love the Runaway Guys, plus Josh Jepson and Icrangirl, mainly for their quotes. Here are some that I can remember:

Chuggaa: "So we're-...SCREW YOU! I thought I told you to die in the last-....Okay, I'll take it."
Josh Jepson: "Oh my god! What was the heck was the what the what the what!?"
NCS: "I am in the forest, walking around..." (His whole Forest Maze song)
ProtonJon: "Have I said DEATH WATER enough tonight?"
Icrangirl: "Wheee! Just what I needed was an intidepressant- oh, gourd."

I've done a Let's Play of Moonster Safe, here's my quote:

"Okay. Pull the lever...ooh, cute little kitty monster~!"
