"I should do a Let's Play"
Or so some of you guys have told me. And I do have several games I'd like to play sitting on my computer and/or Steam drive....

So now that I'm (mostly) finished transferring stuff over to the new comp, maybe I could actually try doing one of these. Here's a small list of  options, you tell me what you want to see.

> Pokemon: Eevee Edition
> Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes
> Cave Story: Jenka's Nightmare
> An Untitled Story

Bastion I do have on Steam and I do want to get around to playing it, but it's not on the list at this time as I haven't yet transferred my Steam stuff over to the new comp. Maybe after I do one or two of these and finish with the transfers completely, I'll add my Steam games (or at least the ones that would be entertaining to LP/watch be LPed) to the future request list.

Also would you guys prefer I try to record these and YouTube them, or do a screenshots-only LP?

And yes I know I have a bazillion other things on my "eventually get done" list but these games are among them and I'm in kind of a bluh don't know what to write/where to go with writing phase as far as my various stories go... let's just ignore that for now =)

I actually vote against doing a Let's Play of Bastion. If done by screenshots, a lot of the charm, that is the narrator, will be lost. But if it's done via youtube, that same narrator and you will both kinda be trying to fight for airtime.


I vote Cave Story: Jenka's Nightmare via youtube. A nice simple side-scroller to start it easy. (and if you narrate it with silly voices for the characters, double bonus for me)

I will probably end up borrowing DeceasedCrab's interpretation of Balrog at least. HUZZAH!!!

I haven't actually played Bastion yet, so I didn't know about the Narrator. The four games I listed I've at least played a little of them, so I won't be going in completely blind, but also I haven't completed (or even done the majority of) any of them. I think An Untitled Story is the one I've gotten farthest in, and I know I didn't even get halfway. I have watched LPs/playthroughs of An Untitled Story and Crimson Echoes, but it's been quite some time on both so I don't recall all the details.

Truth be told, I'm really not a fan of video LPs. Then again, I can't say much else in regards to screenshot ones since I've only read the Pokemon ones which are gold.

I've never heard of Jenka's Nightmare or Untitled Story, what are those?

Screenshot LPs will eat up whatever storage you plan to use like you wouldn't believe.

Jenka's Nightmare is a fanmade sequel to Cave Story, pretty well-made one at that. It was started and abandoned halfway through or so; another user picked it up and finished it.

An Untitled Story is a little freeware game that starts off being about a little egg wandering around a mostly-undefined region, it's a big exploration/wandering type game.

Honestly I'd say the game type matters best. I've found most RPGs are kind of bluh to sit through on a video LP unless the commentator is really amusing (Chuggaaconroy is one of the few I like for this); otherwise it gets really repetitive and all, especially if there are a lot of random encounters or grinding; I feel screenshot LPs work well for RPGs - get the necessary dialogue and bits and pieces of interesting battle scenes, but skip over the rest. (Though what Lady mentions IS a bit of an issue - I might have to rely on Photobucket for it if I go that route.) But for a platformer like Cave Story or An Untitled Story a screenshot LP misses a lot of the exploration aspects that make much of the main allure of the game.

Yeah it really depends on the game.

As far as I can tell, if you're not going to do a lot of editing, video LPs might be less time consuming (My FE screenshot LP took me forever to do; I'm assuming other LPers have some quick-n-easy secret.) I think if you were to do a video LP, I'd vote for Untitled Story.

When I did Pokemon Brown back on DomiNation, I would just spam the screenshot button and toss together the pics in DropBox and link them as necessary; it was still pretty time consuming to type up though, yes.

The few videos of Terranigma I did (before the recorder screwed up on me and I didn't want to go through the headache of redoing the sections and ended up losing interest in the LP and playing well beyond where I left off, until I got stuck on something and lost interest in the game for now) did not take long at all to do - the videos would be 10-15 minutes long apiece, I'd take a little time to get the audio lined up with the video in Movie Maker (as I had to record them separately due to the setup on the old computer - I'll have to figure out if I'll need to do the same on the laptop or if Bandicam will be able to pick up game audio and my voice at the same time), and then compress it to web-video-ready format and upload. It sounds complex, but it was fairly easy - I have almost no video-making experience so I was fumbling along figuring this out as I went - and didn't take long at all, maybe half an hour in total (not counting recording time of course).

Alright, since one vote for each of the side-scrollers, I'll leave it to a coin flip... and looks like Jenka's Nightmare wins. Will do that first then follow it up with An Untitled Story. After that, I should have access to my Steam library as well as other games I'm transferring over from the old computer, so a more complete list will be available to pick from.

I'll probably end up doing a screenshot LP of Crimson Echoes somewhere along the way, since I can play and take screenshots while chatting with you guys on Skype, whereas I won't be able to do that with the video ones. Probably after I finish/get bored with Volt White. Then maybe Eevee Edition when that's done.

Will see about starting sometime over the weekend. =) Updates will likely be slow, maybe one or two a week, depending on stuff.

Buttons aren't showing up for me for some reason. Assuming NoScript is eating them....

EDIT: Yup, that was it. Thanks.
