Shameless self-promotion

Post by DP on Sun Jul 07, 2013 11:23 pm

I figure since at this point this whole forum is a huge family, you guys should be the first to know this. I've been planning a little side project for about two weeks now, and now is about time to reveal it.

I've started a LP Channel!

The channel is called Drop-In/Drop-Out Gaming, and the whole premise is that any combination of people can participate in the games based on who wants to join in. Myself and (currently) two friends just hung out today and filmed four hours' worth of footage, but I'm sure I've got others that will include just me and a single friend, or other friends not currently included. The first video will be up tomorrow. I will warn you now that my friend was sort of a moron and forgot to set his brand new $200 mic to be the audio input for the first ~8 videos, so the audio quality isn't that great for some of them. However, we're still gonna put them out because there's a lot of great and/or funny stuff that happens before that.

Anyway, if any of you are interested, you can check out the Channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/DropInDropOutGaming (of course, the aesthetics aren't final in any way, the images are just stuff we threw together).

Sonic and the Secret Rings turned out really well for what we did. Luigi's Mansion also ended up coming out amazingly.

Well, it's pretty goddamn hard to get views on a let's play channel anyways.

So it's the right decision. Shameless but right.

On the bright side of the shameless promotion, I'm sure people who watch will be entertained.

And I'm gonna double-post for this, but let me clarify now that this LP channel will not in any way affect Axis, for those of you that may be concerned. While I may laze around sometimes, when I'm motivated, I get shit done. And this LP channel was the change of pace I needed to give me 100% motivation. Hell, if not for a book report due in two days, I'd've had Mario and Link done by last week, plus a third character done by this week. I've really wanted to work on it at the exact time I couldn't.

The first video will be up today. I'm still contemplating whether or not we should upload two for our first day. We've got most of them edited already, so it wouldn't be a big deal if we did that.

I didn't edit that one. I checked on the ones I edited, that's not an issue. So MD's just bad (shocker). The audio is also something that MD did. For some reason he keeps wanting to edit even though it takes him twice as long to do it.

Then just guide him through a couple. It helps get speed up and accuracy. As for audio I ment in the editor (i'm assuming Vegas but camtasia is easier by far to use. If your using windows movie maker the door is thataway) just mess with sliders (on track management in Vegas on the clip in camtasia in wmm kill yourself...I mean I don't know) until its audible.I mean I enjoyed what I heard but I didn't hear as much as I wanted too

Oh, we've edited the sliders already.  Otherwise you'd ONLY hear game audio, it was that loud.  All of the first week or so of Sonic vids will follow that pattern, because if we make them any louder there will be SO much clipping in the next few episodes.  Jake talking already nearly clips it as-is for some reason lol.

It's a lot better overall starting with LM ep. 3 or 4.

Edit: MD's currently trimming that extra 20 seconds down in YouTube's editor.

Oh, my bad.  Tomorrow is the first episode of Luigi's Mansion.  For the most part, I'm inaudible in that one (I sat farthest from his laptop's mic, which we didn't know was recording), even if I turn the commentary's audio up to max.  I would've subtitled my stuff, but even I can barely hear it.  Thankfully, Mario Party 3 goes up the next day, and that's recorded with the right microphone.  And it's fucking hilarious.

Edit: Nevermind, Mario Party starts tomorrow, Luigi's Mansion is up now.

Oh, I forgot to mention: For the record, we are taking requests for games we should play. Pretty much anything is fair game, although it might take some time for us to acquire said games. We're also currently trying to avoid repeating series (putting hopefully a bit of a gap between games in the series), so random requests work even better!

*Looks at CDi console and game prices* Yeeeeeah, about that...

Unless I magically come into a shit-ton of excess money, that's not gonna happen soon. Well, maybe if we emulate the games.

It's quite funny how expensive cartridge-cased piles of crap are these days.

I blame poor handling (and poor explanation on HOW to handle cartridge games) for that. I mean, Mario Bros. 3 should NOT be $30 on eBay like it probably is when you think about how plentiful that game was. But so many people didn't know how to care for the games that they're actually rare now.

Anyway, any more fiscally-reasonable suggestions? I'm sure you've got a few games you'd like to see us do, Count. (Before you even mention Colors, I'm already thinking about throwing money at it for a future LP.)

Anyways... I think that DmC could provide some useful material after all of the controversy and what not. Especially if you're willing to show off games like Jak II on your channel.

*Looks at price* okay, the eBay listings for that are a lot more reasonable. We could do that one. Given how many times we've already used the infamous "fuck you" line, and the entirety of the series we're starting today, it's definitely possible.

We've talked about Sonic 06. I want to do it because there's a lot that Grep missed (like the Green and Purple wristbands/gem powerups), but we're not sure yet. As for the Ratchets, we'd probably only do the first one, or the Future Saga. The latter because MD hasn't played them and the former because the latter 75% of the original tetralogy is very similar in style and I don't want to get boring. Maybe we could do TLoU but I still don't have it yet, and probably won't get it until August, so who knows!
