Tala Playa



Info

I've created this little thread here, to host my gaming failures. Notice: Some of the videos may be laggy, my PC isn't the happiest when it comes to recording. Well, the earliest videos are gonna be laggy. Most of the new ones won't.

What I just watched was fifteen minutes of you pausing the game and opening the Steam overlay, interspersed with three minutes of laggy gameplay footage with a visible window border and Steam beeping in the background every five seconds.

...Actually that's a lie: I skipped through most of it when I noticed the pattern.


I am cranky this morning.

I'm sure it'd be a better experience watching the video if you find a way to have no background noise. Lower your microphone sensitivity and remove anything that will make a noise from the room.

Also if you fix the aspect ratio and window borders. Use a better program for recording.

Also if you mute Steam sounds, or just not bother with the Steam chat. It isn't necessary.
It also got my hopes up, thinking someone messaged me on Steam all the time.

Also the FPS issues. Turn the settings down for something. I might also blame the recording software for this.


Try doing these things if you can. It'll make the videos a damn lot better, son.

I have to agree with what Eps and Delta are suggesting here; while it was great fun to be there and listen to you play, the recording of you playing just doesn't live up. The steam noises were distracting and the chatlog was obtrusive. I think a solution would be to pick one side or the other. Either record yourself playing the game in offline mode (attempting to take out the background noise like Eps said), or scrap the recording and have us just listen to you. You might find yourself switching to the steam overlay too much with the latter (as demonstrated by the video), so perhaps asking us not to say anything would keep you immersed in the game, providing us all with a better experience.

Also, for the love of Brennenburg, don't pause every time something moves. Half the fun is reacting to things as they happen, not as you decide to unpause the game then quickly pause it again.

@Delta, did you just, make a post with absolutely nothing positive in it?! @_@

Yes, I realized me pausing ever 5 seconds is a bit stupid, and that I spent waaay too much time in the Steam Overlay. I'll do mostly everything you guys suggested. I can't do anything about video lag, sadly. I've got everything on low, so, yeah. razz

I wasn't going to say anything mean about the video because I didn't watch most of it, but I can tell you this:

Watching you cut out to steam everytime you hear a noise makes you look like a wuss.
People watch Let's Plays to see their reaction to things that happen ingame. That's usually what makes them fun to watch, and often hilarious.
If you keep cutting to steam like that, we don't get to see your proper reaction, thus diminishing the point of the video.

For proof of concept, see this video:


Quite funny, yes? The player is obviously terrified, however he presses on, which usually ends up in a funny situation for us.
Also, playing on does sometimes lead to monents where things happen coincidentally, which makes the video even more interesting. (See the part about his friend finding a bag of Milky Ways)

Also reguarding to your comment about video lag, I dunno about you guys, but I'm not usually one to watch laggy let's plays, so you may want to fix that...

I really need to get recording software. So that I can record me and my friend playing ME3 Multi. We really just fool around.

Episode 2 is live; a slight bit of lag, but a lot less than in the last video. Plus no steam overlay; I disabled all of the steam stuff that might make me not get immersed. XD But I still had people listening. Jad(Delta) got to hear me get absolutely scared. razz

Fraps. I was running everything on medium, and I had it at my desktop resolution. Next episode I run the graphics down and the resolution down a bit. razz But for episode 1 I used Camtasia Studio.

I completely and utterly chickened out while playing. I will, however, do it eventually. (By the time I'm ready to play it, Slender: Source may be out. So I'll play it with Jad and Drago. Maybe.) For those who want the Slender: Source page, this is it.

At least you're living up to the series title. :U

If you're that scared to play horror games, why not just play some normal games?
Like maybe Dungeon Defenders or something?
mostly because I wanna play that game more ;^;

razz Sure, I'll probably do normal games now. So, a bit of Amnesia here and there, and maybe some Slender Source with Drago*. (I can't guarantee Jad will want to play it. XD)

*Meaning I won't have to do it alone. D:
