Title: Let's play on Youtube / Alliance of Free n00bs, LOL
Post by: Lukipela on May 31, 2008, 08:03:32 am
Let's play on Youtube

This short piece of semi relevant news courtesy of Anthony (http://forum.uqm.stack.nl/index.php?action=profile;u=1803) over on UQM. The original topic is here (http://forum.uqm.stack.nl/index.php?topic=4124.0). Thanks!

Anyhow, doing a Let's play essentially means that you play through a game, usually with added commentary. The youtube user redpowervan (http://www.youtube.com/user/redpowervan) has so far put up 8 clips detailing his amazing journey through the SC universe. I briefly browsed a few clips and found it quite nice. Hope some of you may enjoy this as well.

EDIT: Seems there's more than one player in town when this kind of stuff is considered. Lets hear it for Zarla, how's done a screencap Let's Play (http://zarla.livejournal.com/192372.html) (normal warnings about frungy_lovers apply, and this other one over here (http://fromearth.net/LetsPlay/Star%20Control%202/) as well.

But wait! There's more!. Another small bit of news I've been thinking about putting up for a while is a new UQM translation. Astute readers may recall the Slovak translation I posted a few weeks back, but this is a really hot one. How would you like to play UQM in l33t? (http://mooses.nl/leetmasters/) It's now possible thanks to Megaguns (http://forum.uqm.stack.nl/index.php?action=profile;u=577) impressive amount of spare time. Go check it out! Oh, and here's the UQM forum thread (http://forum.uqm.stack.nl/index.php?topic=4112.0) about it.

Not sure what the context of that is, but go hogwild I guess.

Someone voted this is not relevant. I think we've got a hater in our midst!

... Zarla's had a screencap very-nearly-Let's Play (http://zarla.livejournal.com/192372.html) up for ages now. And there's already been a SC2 Let's Play (http://fromearth.net/LetsPlay/Star%20Control%202/).

Admittedly, we've not had a video-only one before, but I'd hardly consider a chronicle of the adventure newsworthy at this point. XD;;

Hey, since when the hell was fromearth.net supposed to be shown to the public? That's exclusive material, sister! Not for public consumption!

(TIE Fighter on that page is the best LP ever made)

|D What? *I* found it through Google, while looking for MGS screencaps~

(I don't think I've read that one yet, though I do recall loving that game as a kid. Or at least not dying as horribly and often as I did in Rebel Assault. XD )

One of your scenarios in the melee challenge thread. I've been wanting to use that name for a long time.

I'll keep that in mind for my next news post, thanks.

You've stumbled upon something that's used within an exclusive community, although the Let's Play archive itself is open to the public.

It's not a serious LP, but it does encapsulate what the game is all about perfectly. MU 1 IS THE EMPEROR'S STOOL PIGEON. SRERVE THE EMPROER -- ABOVE ALL.

Heh heh.  Thanks for the tip, Shiver.  I've read through a good chunk of it; very funny stuff, if you've played a lot of TIE Fighter.
