Your Bloodborne LP legit gave me recurring nightmares about the game, I've never had nightmares from a game before. Also just wondering when is the next episode cause I wanna watch more

Kzinti
Tomorrow. It's exporting right now!

Do you have any advice for someone looking to do an LP? Not make money off doing it or anything, but just advice on how to make a decently entertaining product.

Brian Smith
Have a mission statement or elevator pitch (in your head.). This can be as simple as "I'd like to see how a Souls runthrough would play out if you divided it up by death" or "Dead to Rights has a really ridiculous plot I think people would find funny."
Imagine if a total stranger was gonna watch your LP or someone else's and see if your pitch would convince them to watch yours instead.
In most cases, be prepared to redo episode 1. In fact, plan on it. Then when you've done it, decided if you could do it better or if the idea works at all. I'd more likely watch a blind play through with a good episode 1 even if the caveat was that the first episode was redone; than one with a bad episode 1.

Do you plan to let your daughter start with Demons Souls, or is she going to start straight at Dark Souls or Bloodborne?

Well they're all pretty bleak but maybe Bloodborne to instill the "no matter how talented you are, there are much bigger forces set against you" lesson early.

Its not so much a question, I just wanted to let you know I would listen to another two hours of you guys talking about American Horror Show. I fucking lost it at the 10 commandments killer and I want to know what they did with that but I can't bring myself to watch it, IT'S SO SCARY

gibreel leal
I actually started rewatching Season 1 to see if there was something I can do with it

I remember you were talking about Elvira a while ago and for some reason I got interested in it and looked it up a bit. Have you ever played Waxworks, which is made by the same guys?

Patricia Cornflower
It's on My List! I actually want to finish both Elvira games and try Waxworks.

I haven't read your twitter in weeks, so I'm sorry if this has been answered there or here, but are you still doing DotB streams? It has been a while since you uploaded anything, and I don't keep up with the streams. This is just a break for the holidays, right? I've been enjoying them.

Ninto55
I am I just like playing Demon's and Dark Souls 2

Not a question, and I posted this on your video, but you should know this for DS2 I will let you know beef, that the durability in this game is whack, the more FPS you have, the worse it gets.EACH FRAME the weapon is in contact with an enemy it will take a little off. 60 frames is worse than 30.

They fixed that in May 2015 I heard

Are you gonna try to be transparent about what soul level (I guess it's soul memory in DSII) you are and where you'll be while streaming? I'm kind of torn on Dark Souls II and want to buy SotFS just to play along and maybe invade you, but I'm guessing that just won't work out anyways?

Silver
Sure I can do that

Just to clarify, I wasn't trying to "raise your kid secondhand"- I've got a 3 month old kid myself that I love and worry about 24/7 and I know better than to "Dark Souls" a fellow parent (give them unsolicited advice). Sorry if it was a weird question!

Hunter Schafer
Huh? No no it wasn't! I just meant I get the question a lot and respond on a superficial level, but it's not like I think a whole lot on it

Does it ever worry you how frequently you get asked about when and how you'll make your daughter play videogames? I'd imagine that once she's capable of playing them she should also be able to decide whether or not she wants to. Is it weird to have randos trying to raise your kid secondhand?

Gear
Nah, it doesn't bother me. Parenthood's one of those things you can't really learn externally. I think more about things like her health and safety, etc. Her hobbies are interesting of course, but I'm really not thinking a whole lot about her first video game.
So the answer is "what's the first game you'll show her?" is really "I'll cross that bridge when we come to it, but for right now, it's more about 'holy shit college will cost what?' And 'oh no she can claim stairs'

Do you have a game in mind to introduce your daughter to video games when she's old enough?

Hunter Schafer
Truthfully, I actually don't plan to until she shows an interest. Then, probably Sonic 06 to keep her away from games.

What is the meaning of your name?

Michael comes from the Hebrew for "Who is as God?" but when I feel really damn good about myself I like to omit the question mark.

MULTIGOON QUESTION: What is your favorite screenshot LP? I stumbled on ChokesMcGee's LPs of SaGa and Wizardry by total accident, and realize there's a ton of well-written, non-video LPs I should read.

Lord Licorice
Baxter and Dark Id are my gotos

If HDCP is what's killing Demon's Souls a HDMI 1.3b splitter will strip it out.

ImprobableLobsterSA
Yeah I want to get one for other reasons like iOS and Mac App Store games to make fun of. If we have to have it, I really like PS4's implementation of "Turn it off if you want and content providers can require it." I'm not sure why they can't put out a quick firmware update for PS3 to do that but maybe there are reasons.

Which Star Wars movie is your favorite?

Derek
Episode IV. I know Empire is the best, but Death Star Trench Run is my favorite moment with Han coming back, music swelling, and the pseudo-pornographic image of the proton torpedo entering the exhaust port.

I want to work with computers but I suck at memorization and always forget math formulas. What should I do beef-san?

Dilly
Typically, I find you have to figure out what your learning style is and try to teach yourself in a way that adapts to it. Some people are better at rote memorization, some people need to understand root concepts first. No one learns quite the same way, so you have to figure out how to frame something you're trying to learn in a more familiar environment.
I like coming up with mnemonics so if you have a specific thing that's giving you trouble, lemme know and I'll give it a shot

I may be mis-remembering, but did you say that you aren't able to upload the rest of the Binary Domain playthrough to youtube because of copyright issues? Is it available anywhere else?

Scott
Yeah, Sega blocked the last few episodes worldwide so I'm not sure what to do there. I might upload it elsewhere.
