I don't do Let's Plays :) And even if I did, I wouldn't use quiznos00 to post them on. You could also link to Andrew's channel, even though he hasn't posted anything in a while...

I think it's a good idea to reunite everyone under a same topic so people who search for that find it easily

Don't forget ChipWiki, which uploads pure vanilla solutions to many levels. It might even deserve its own topic for those who are stuck on a level and simply want a video walkthrough without having to download them.

Also, he said one of his New Year's resolutions was to get going with it, because NOBODY likes stalled LP's... OK, it isn't that bad, but either way I always look forward to more videos from those who haven't uploaded in a while. :chipwin:

I wish I could get back in the mood to do LPs again. Having to set up the mic and talking for hours is much harder than I thought it would be. Maybe one day I'll finish them all.

I don't think it is that bad; I can record for 3 hours straight if I wanted to even though it makes it much harder to speak clearly for some reason, but everyone's different. Plus, my patience starts to grow thin if I play one game for too long, so that explains why JoshL2 got a bit out of hand in the previous recording session.

The last episode from Rock (Nostril3.dat #2) was just brilliant on so many levels. :)

Except there was only one level played - we talking about sublevels now? Just had to say that. Anyway, I agree with J.B., that episode is certainly a classic Rockdet video.

Still, it was kinda sorta missing the signature quote "Perhaps maybe question mark?" Not that it makes a Rockdet video classic though, there are a bunch of other quotes such as "Damn the f%$* up!" that can do the same. (Y)

I think Rock did say, "perhaps, maybe..." but without the question mark.

This makes it even more funny, though, sometimes it's just a "question mark" which is also hilarious.

I have 2 accounts. One has no time limit (AdrenalinDragon) and the other does (TJP7291, my Chip's Challenge channel). I just don't understand how I qualified for the no time limit. <_<

Basically to qualify for the no time limit, you have to upload frequently on the account that has a time limit. In other words, you simply have to be active on the account and behave yourself on it. Lol.

Interesing... I don't usually go on my account on a normal computer and I don't have any time limit...

 

It must account your iPod time too, because I'm on youtube all the time on it...

Youtube has had a redesign, so maybe some rules have changed, but I think 15 minutes is the standard limit for regular accounts.

That's how it was when I first used my Flareon350 account. It's actually 15:30 for some strange reason.

As far as I know, you have to go a certain amount of time without any copyright issues, as they don't want people uploading whole TV shows or movies or stuff like that. You should get the limit off soon.

 

I remember back when YouTube had only a 10-minute limit, those were good times.

Actually, 11 minute videos were annoying to edit, tbh. 15:30 was looser which I liked much, and since then I try to keep my vids around that mark.

That's true, I try to keep my videos a bit shorter so people can watch them more easily in one sitting, but longer videos I can deal with. My Minecraft series will be kept to around 15 minutes per video at most, because they are in 1080p HD which takes up TONS of space (and plus I think it fits the series better to have shorter videos).

Well, rock, I know I greatly enjoy your LPs and would be very sad if you stopped doing them... so keep up the good work :P

 

I enjoy BigOto's LPs a great deal as well, for the record.

On a related note, I'm considering doing an LP of CC1 but if I start doing them I'll probably do Skyrim first. What do you think?

Skyrim is definitely something I'm eager to see from inside. Didn't want to watch any "influent people" LP it for some reason.

The fifth installment of the very popular series The Elder Scrolls, Oblivion being the best-seller fourth game. I never played them because I don't like the genre, but definitely worth a look if you're into that.

Well, one must respect the hype for it certainly, as opinion rhyme with bias.

Plus, it is a pretty good game indeed, so I don't think it's overrated at all, the CoD series is... At the very least, they innovate with new concepts and one must admit that a lot of time and effort was spent in this title.

Having played it to total completion on one character and with a second about half way there, I can tell you that it isn't overrated at all. It isn't the *only* good game released recently, but it's certainly up there in the topmost tier. And if you have not played it yourself, you can't really review it at all.

 

I do, however, find the "arrow to the knee" meme stupid as well.

With that said, you can also tell where they took shortcuts.

I don't even know what that is but I don't think I want to discover.

 

It isn't that bad. In Skyrim some of the town guards say, "I used to be an adventurer like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee."

 

Apparently someone decided it would make a nice meme. But it's not. It's just stupid.

I enjoyed Skyrim much more than Oblivion due to slaying Dragons but I don't really see how you could LP a game that long to be honest.

 

I'd only LP the main quest and the civil war quest line - maybe a few others here and there. All in all, it shouldn't be more than 30 hours total.

30 hours is still a pretty long LP. I know my Paper Mario: TTYD LP was 21 hours long, and there's 70 episodes of it, most of which were 20 minutes.

If anyone's seen Kurtjmac's Far Lands Or Bust series (Minecraft), he plans on playing for more than 1000 hours in the LP alone. So far he is about 2% of the way there at 100 20-minute episodes.

30 hours is fine if you're ready to deal with it.

 

I don't have the time so I can't do it yet, but, yes I can handle that. I will, however, do something shorter first.

I think you'd have to do it in segments rather than a whole clip. When I was doing a speed run for certain games, they were disqualified because of saving. :(

Gauntlet Dark Legacy had tons of unlockable characters, including a happy-face-stick-man. (I believe there's also a nude Valkrie, although she comes with black censor boxes -- also available in one of the Gauntlet arcade games.)

If you guys want to see my Angry German Kid parody for CCLP3 here it is (took 8 hours to make if I recall correctly, as I was really bored):

This video is my revenge against the *horribly* stupid CCLP3 rule that you can't upload videos on YouTube until 3 people have completed the set. When CCLP1 comes around I will advocate to my limits for casual Let's Plays to be allowed right from the start, even if that means risking a copyright strike so I can make a Hitler parody thing as revenge when needed.

I've seen that Frustration thing at least 3 times, it's hilarious but sad that he BBQRageQuits at the end.

Trevor, the only reason why we didn't allow videos of CCLP3 to be posted online right away is because we didn't want solutions to be readily available for everyone - even as a temptation - right from the start. With no solutions available initially, more casual play is encouraged. :) It has nothing to do with copyright.

I'm still okay with this rule. But maybe we should consider allowing LPs of the first 50 levels after 10 people have finished them, or something.

When I said copyright I was actually talking about the Hitler video (which is certainly copyrighted), but initially when I got word that I wasn't supposed to upload videos of CCLP3 I was so freaked out about copyright it was actually hilarious, so it has since turned into a joke from my point of view. I was also under the false understanding that ChipWiki was in supreme control of anything CCLP-related back then, so that explains why they file the copyright claim in the AGK video. I agree with Dave in that LP's of early levels especially for CCLP1 (since it's easier) should be allowed when ~3 people finish them. I don't mind waiting a month or so, but anymore than that and it seems stupid (unless it's only the harder levels that are being restricted).

I'm perfectly fine with the gag rule they installed, but I don't see it as an issue ATM with the return of the revenge of casual play.

Also, Tom, this video is what made it all begin for me.

Yeah, me neither, to be honest. :) But at the time, the LP craze hadn't quite hit yet. It definitely has now!

Regarding CCLP1 LP's - I think people should be allowed to on a level-by-level thing, so say, when 3 or 5 or whatever arbitrary number of people it is have beaten a level it's open for LPing.

 

If the set is designed correctly, this means the first 50 or so levels will be unlocked very quickly - maybe even within a few days - with the end levels taking a bit longer, but with the difficulty goal in mind the set should be entirely available for LPing probably within a month...

 

We would need to make a thread to track this, of course.
