@  Fire Blazer : (06 December 2017 - 07:16 PM) if the VA strike helped bring in a bit more diversity, then I suppose that's a good thing, lol
@  kirant : (29 November 2017 - 08:07 PM) What I'm trying to get at is that the variety might have been caused by necessity by developers. As much as I was always a fan, I don't think some certain VAs that I thought had great range (ex - Cherami Leigh, DC Douglas) would have gotten their bigger roles without such a strike.
@  kirant : (29 November 2017 - 08:05 PM) I think it's mostly because of a VA strike. A bunch have agreed to not work with major game creators (until an agreement was reached early November this year). This included some extremely prominent VAs (ex - Jennifer Hale).
@  Fire Blazer : (29 November 2017 - 03:36 PM) I feel like the variety is increasing a little bit though, if only because with voice acting becoming more common and people recognizing voices more, there's a little bit of benefit to getting some different voices, perhaps
@  Fire Blazer : (29 November 2017 - 03:34 PM) lol yeah there are some really prominent VOs that will get a lot of roles, and often times big ones
@  xcrash1998 : (27 November 2017 - 05:59 PM) Oh, ok fine. You can ignore the post
@  xcrash1998 : (27 November 2017 - 05:58 PM) Nope was an error on my end
@  kirant : (26 November 2017 - 10:32 PM) Troy Baker takes an insane number of roles. Him, Matt Mercer, and Laura Bailey all seem to be plastered all over games.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2017 - 07:27 PM) Fire Blazer Yeah you are right. Just depends on how far it goes but then there is the question on what is to far or still ok.
@  Idiot : (26 November 2017 - 05:26 AM) There was a game I recently played where Troy Baker did the voice for like 4 different character. That dude is in everything.
@  Mig64 : (25 November 2017 - 05:57 AM) So I was watching the character intros for Fire Emblem Warriors, and I have to say Gharnef should've been voiced by Troy Baker.

@  Fire Blazer : (24 November 2017 - 01:47 PM) and I think it'll stay this way for a bit. do you not like it? any alternatives that don't compromise the benefits of DLC? (e.g. Smash 4 DLC characters; would you rather delay the game for more characters, just so that they aren't released as DLC instead?)
@  Fire Blazer : (24 November 2017 - 01:46 PM) and you can see how they do their mobile games, so... yeah, Nintendo was a bit late to do it, but they eventually did join the other big companies with the new way of selling games and such
@  Fire Blazer : (24 November 2017 - 01:46 PM) uh, idk. I'm not against DLC as a whole, I just want it to be executed well. which to me mainly means, the original game should be a full experience, and any DLC should be extras and adequately priced; if you're selling a single costume for $1, or a single new gameplay map for $3, that kinda thing, that's way overpriced IMO.
@  xcrash1998 : (23 November 2017 - 08:12 PM) I mean in terms of how they sell their games and then there are DLC's and every thing. Nintendo is clearly going into that kind of direction. (Actually is doing that already). Not that I am against them trying to keep profit high to stay in the business but there needs to be a better way.
@  xcrash1998 : (23 November 2017 - 08:09 PM) How do you think will nintendo change in the future
@  Fire Blazer : (13 November 2017 - 08:55 PM) lol, perhaps
@  kirant : (13 November 2017 - 07:19 PM) I assume nostalgia hits as soon as we get old enough to "fall out" of things.
@  Rujio : (13 November 2017 - 03:57 PM) aren't we supposed to be too young for nostalgia or something?
@  Fire Blazer : (13 November 2017 - 06:08 AM) yet it feels bad since somewhere in my heart I miss all that

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
