@  Idiot : (22 February 2018 - 06:29 PM) Actually I am a bot. I'm the Tumblr bot. *shot*
@  Elwood : (22 February 2018 - 01:56 AM) You're only slightly less likely that a bot to get banned. :lol:
@  Idiot : (22 February 2018 - 12:35 AM) Yeah don't worry Crash. I'm more likely to get banned than you. And that's only slightly facetious
@  Fire Blazer : (21 February 2018 - 10:11 PM) I think it'd notify me but loool, not sure I'd take anything Pie/Idiot says seriously XP
@  Fire Blazer : (21 February 2018 - 10:10 PM) not like I'd do anything even if you were :P
@  Fire Blazer : (21 February 2018 - 10:10 PM) hahaha, funny that you actually checked if you were reported XD
@  Elwood : (21 February 2018 - 07:13 PM) PIE YOU BOUGHT THAT!?! *Cough* A likely story Mr. Crash.
@  Idiot : (21 February 2018 - 05:34 AM) I was just joking of course. :P
@  xcrash1998 : (21 February 2018 - 05:20 AM) "Checks if I was reported*... ok good.
It was by accident, I wouldn't actually use it. I don't see any reason for it, a forum is a place to chat with people.
@  Elwood : (21 February 2018 - 12:19 AM) (Leans around corner) Did someone say cookies?
@  Idiot : (20 February 2018 - 09:23 PM) Nobodies home, also we don't want any cookies.
@  Fire Blazer : (20 February 2018 - 09:10 PM) (pokes head in)
@  Fire Blazer : (19 February 2018 - 09:31 PM) I've always liked having a shoutbox on forums for whatever reason lol. just a nice place to casually throw stuff here. we actually used to have large conversations in them a long time ago, but said time has passed, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (19 February 2018 - 09:30 PM) oh lol yeah I kinda forgot you can. but who would want to
@  Idiot : (19 February 2018 - 05:52 PM) *blocks and reports xcrash1998*
@  Elwood : (19 February 2018 - 10:58 AM) HERESY!!! What maniac would do such a thing!?!
@  xcrash1998 : (19 February 2018 - 09:49 AM) I just realised that you can actually minimize the shout box.
@  Fire Blazer : (19 February 2018 - 05:25 AM) and it'd be a time investment just to get familiar with all the latest fancy tech and stuff :(

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
