@  acceptance : (12 July 2018 - 05:57 PM) As far as we know, anyway.
@  Fire Blazer : (09 July 2018 - 08:29 PM) ooo, Felover's alive, lol
@  xcrash1998 : (09 July 2018 - 11:33 AM) He will be remembered, our brother in arms.
@  acceptance : (07 July 2018 - 03:35 PM) BUM- BUM- BUUUUUM
@  acceptance : (07 July 2018 - 03:34 PM) And in the end; xcrash1998 never did find out what was up with Felover3. In fact, no one ever heard from either of them again.
@  xcrash1998 : (03 July 2018 - 12:41 PM) Hey man, whats up
@  Felover3 : (03 July 2018 - 01:56 AM) Been a while
@  acceptance : (02 July 2018 - 11:12 PM) In retrospect it's pretty obvious, what with the Johnny Bosch and sword revving, but according to my doctor when I was 12 i have ADD.
@  acceptance : (02 July 2018 - 10:39 PM) Holy shit it just clicked in my head that the guy in the DMC5 trailer is Nero. Neato!
@  kirant : (27 June 2018 - 12:19 PM) Granted, that makes it sound like I have no interest in Fates (and I really don't, outside of a couple characters)...so I guess my hopes are above "fairly negligible" right now.
@  kirant : (27 June 2018 - 12:19 PM) I think I've got higher hopes going in than for Fates. Fates, as soon as the trailer hit, made it pretty clear it was going to eschew an interesting "both sides have points" story for a fairly clear cut "good guys" story and "villain" narrative.
@  Mig64 : (15 June 2018 - 02:36 AM) I'm not really sure how I feel about it, it felt a bit too different, could either work very well or not work at all, no middle ground.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) not having super high hopes for it
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) the names and art are interesting
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) new FE looks ok
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 09:07 PM) A post on SF refers to "brigade based tiles" and "squad based controls"
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:59 PM) Those generic units following the character give me hope that we can have actual large scale battles instead of turning everything into a glorified skirmish.
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:56 PM) Seems like a very fitting name for the character, then.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:27 PM) oh hey doing more research on that - the "gard" part is in fact cognate with "guard," so Edelgard approximately means Nobility Protector.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:26 PM) (Also, Edelgard is an interesting name - -gard is a common ending for old Germanic feminine given names [think Hildegard] and Edel is German for noble)

I know it's been a while but my computer had to go in for repairs and I just recently got it back. Here it is though, part 1 of my XCOM 2 lets play. Not bad but there are a few things I'll need to fix next time like talking more clearly and louder.

LPing is haaaaaaaard man haha, especially by yourself—it's like teaching yourself how to be confident and annoying while talking to yourself... (and if you share a house/apartment, which many if not most people do, it can be weird doing so when someone else can hear you, lol)

 

I think the mic quality is a little low, and that's both easily and not-so-easily fixable (it's a money problem, but it's also kind of a fix-it-once-and-it's done thing), whereas becoming a bit clearer/louder with the talking just comes with time for most people, unless you're... naturally good at talking to yourself, in which case that's kind of weird in its own right, so uh, don't worry about it, I guess. XD

It's always fun to watch people play XCOM 2 (I'm pretty much not playing until fans manage to salvage any pieces of Long War 2's update for War of the Chosen).  Love seeing all the extra mods thrown on as well and I can see lots of enthusiasm from the player side.

 

One thing that I think is true for most people trying Let's Plays is to explain the game and the player mentality if you're already familiar with the game (instead of playing blind).  I have a full understanding of what you're trying to do in each part.  That said, it's always easier for someone less familiar with the game to understand the game if you (for example) cited in the overworld map that in order to fuel a resistance, you need to acquire more supplies (useful for [whatever]), Elerium, and alloy.  As can be seen in the top right corner, we're short...everything.  So a major focus might be to acquire more resources.  Thankfully, we can send The Avenger over here and begin scouting an option for an operation to gain more supplies.

 

Similarly, in the equipment screen, the same line of thought could lead one to explain that Sharpshooters are combatants who prioritize either focus on sniper rifles or pistols.  Their role is either to provide long ranged damage but can also do a decent job with the pistols (which don't need reloading). 

 

I'm absolutely no good at doing any of this myself (which is why I've written up my Let's Plays so far instead of speaking them).  It's certainly a fun experience to watch someone play the game with their own modded up version though.

Hey thanks for the feedback guys. Yeah editing it I realized my speech wasn't the best( went radio silence a few times and slurred alot of words) and I need to balance my audio and the games audio better. Could definitely better but gotta be brave enough to publish the rough stuff if I want to get better. I have considered buying a good mic but I don't want to drop $100 and then only use it a few times. Once I get going enough to decide this is something I want to keep doing I'll get one.

Haha...no problem.  You're brave enough to throw it out there and that's the most important part.  Being able to speak, play, and think all at the same time is a tough skill.  The only way to really improve it is to practice it. 

 

Audio wise, I didn't notice too much.  Maybe I've been used to smaller LP individuals, but unless it's notably different (see below, where the voice of Makoto has a notable difference in audio quality from the rest of the cast), I really don't notice it that much.

 

Totally not because my old laptop has been dropped enough times that the audio is probably lucky to still be functioning
