    So, I'm thinking of doing a video LP of Skyrim, since it seems like a retardedly funny game. Would you watch something like that?

    Bonus question, what's a good program to record something like that?

    I'd hit it watch it.

    Not entirely of course, thanks to excessive internet usage my attention span is just too small these days.

    As long as you're not mumbling some "jokes" into the microphone.

    I dunno, I usually don't like video LPs since players feel the need to narrate, and most of them can't narrate for shit. If you can, then good, will totally watch.

    No no, I have such a thick accent it would be worthless to narrate.

    Don't worry, there's no acrobatic skill anymore...

    Edit:
    Actually that would be a pretty cool vid if you are into modern art...

    Do it, fag. I want to see an LP where someone actually mocks Skyrim like it deserves, rather than all these other faggy LP'ers who think every little detail in the game is OSSUM(!!11).

    I think the Majestic and Titanic game design of Skyrim would be better shown with a good LP by a good author. I'm not much of a fan of Video LP's (If I do watch any, it just to watch it a bit if it is a game I am interested in, and want a quick look to see how it is). I do this for a lot of Adventure Games I'm not sure if I want to play or not.

    while recording make mental notes of the things you actually want the codex to take note of and edit it down to those

    sure lots of people will say rousing stuff like go for it faget but probably 5% of them at most are actually going to sit through your exploratory 4 hour video series

    Video lps are good as long as the lper is good.

    If I was an honest horse I'd require some sort of test video from Demnowhatever before I neigh or yeigh him. But I'm not, so go, Demnowhatever, go! You can do it!

    Hundreds of Skyrim LPs are being put on Youtube daily, the 'best' will float to the top and get linked here eventually.

    Once I've finished writing my review I'll do some shit and audio the shit out of it maybe.

    Demno-guy, what's the plan for the LP? I take it you're doing subtitles? Also, I guess something like FRAPS or Camtasia should do the tricks required. I'm no let's play superstar though so maybe not.

    Video Lp is million times superior to what for god knows what reason Codexers do with screenshots which is both hassle to make and view.Being stuck up old snobs ftw.

    Yeah I usually don't finish screenshot LP's since there's no easy way to do it. I'm starting this today, after I'm suitably drunk and have sorted out some technical difficulties... There won't be constant narration or something like that, personally I never watch playthroughs where somebody constantly talks. There will, however, be some Finnish swearing and such when appropriate - with subtitles. I'll attempt to play it in a fashion where I play until I pass out from either alcohol or boredom since my time isn't especially valuable right now.

    Do it, hope that the process would not be fatal tho.


















    PS:
    Obviously I won't watch it.
