Also, what are some games you guys think would be fun to play/watch me play? I'm planning on doing the Kingdom Hearts serie, minus the ones they turned into movies, Nier, Rogue Legacy, Symphony of the Night, and maybe the Souls/Bloodborne series if I feel confident that I won't be stuck in one place too long.

My favorite LPs by far are the ones where people show off all the dumbest parts of terrible games. Bad games provide a lot more material for funny commentary, and good games I'd rather just play myself anyway. You seem to have a different attitude, so I get it if this just isn't in line with what you want to do, but I hope you're open to playing something really ridiculous in the future.

I'd love to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which is supposed to be a tie-in to the last movie but has basically nothing to do with it. I saw a stream of it once, and it was a riot to see all of the crazy glitches. (My favorite was when, right before a boss fight, Spider-Man hung down from the ceiling inches away from the boss's face but didn't trigger the fight because he didn't walk into that area. Either that, or the multiple times when he accidentally said the dialogue for two cutscenes simultaneously, with the captions constantly bumping each other off the screen. Or maybe when an in-engine cutscene put him on top of a limo but didn't bother to take him off when it ended, and he just rode it around the city for a few minutes afterward. This game is not very well-programmed.) It's really stupid even when it's working perfectly - because of how the web controls work, Spider-Man can hold himself, straining and twisting in place, way out in the air at an angle from where he'd actually hang, and the engine sometimes processes directional changes in needlessly complicated ways that make the camera go bananas. The game is just ridiculous, and I think it would be great for a humorous LP.

Oh, and you can do all of that stupid crap in this badass outfit.

I really don't enjoy LPs, aside from James and Mike, but that's more because I'm a fan of the channel (AVGN) than anything else.

I LOVE Speedrunning because you take a game you're super familiar with (and maybe bored with) and learn all of these awesome tricks and strategies for completing them the fastest. It totally opens the game up again in a fresh new way. Plus, you're really just racing yourself. Of course, commentary is key, which can be difficult while pulling off some crazy tricks.

Well... this sucks. Two days ago I recorded three new episodes of Kingdom Hearts, and four episodes of the Rogue Legacy series I was planning. I go in to edit them today, and I find out that none of the voice recordings I took work. They're completely silent. Maybe it was Audacity, maybe it was my mic, I dunno. Rogue Legacy isn't too big a deal, I can redo that pretty easy (assuming I can fix whatever's happening), but I've already saved Kingdom Hearts, so I can't go back and replay what I've already done. Geez. What now? Abandon the series? Skip those episodes? What do you guys think?

You could just start Kingdom Hearts over and catch up to where you were. You were only about half an hour in.

Also, I meant to ask earlier, but is there any reason that the game audio is all in the left channel?

Actually, I was about three hours in. Probably won't take me that long to get caught back up though since I won't have to talk to the audience the whole time. And I'm not sure what you mean about the audio?

No, I meant in terms of what you had already covered on YouTube. You said that there'd be trouble redoing the new episodes because you'd saved after them and couldn't replay that content, but the place where you'd begin that replay is a very short way in, so starting a new game to get there would be reasonable.

The LP is in stereo. Your voice is in both channels, but the game's sound is only coming through the left one. It's a strange and uncomfortable effect. I'm guessing that something in or between the game, the console, or the capture card is set up for mono sound instead of stereo.

I've just launched my second let's play series for Nier. Seemed like a good idea, since Nier: Automata just came out and I've been wanting to replay the first one and get all the endings before jumping into the second one. Let me know what you think!

The sound is really out-of-sync this time around for some reason, and over the course of the video, it drifts from being early to being late. In the opening cutscene, the staff clanks before it actually falls, but at the end, the cookies don't make a sound until well after they're dropped. Maybe it's a sampling rate issue?

Well crap, that's not good. Especially since the game video and audio are recorded together on the same file so I can't go back and edit it...
