Youtuber needs encouragement....

So I've been watching a lot of FenPheonix on youtube who has a Let's Play series of videos for Thief1+2, and he has over 400 videos on his channel now. I really like his running commentary very tongue in cheek.

Anyways, I think I finally pestered him enough he finally tried DarkMod again but I think he could use some encouragement. He just started the training mission and could use some pointers + friendly suggestions.

Any exposure TDM gets is good.

I messaged him when I was trying to figure out how to record T2 walkthrus myself, especially for dealing with the gamma problem for T2 recordings & recording sound (your voice & the game-sound, getting the right balance), and he was very helpful. I didn't like his talking at first either but it grew on me too... And it's still much better than a silent walkthru in this case. Most of all I'm just very happy walkthru videos are getting made.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

That's pretty much what I was figuring. There have been a few people who've made Let's Play of Darkmod missions, but none of them have made a large series of all or most of them like this guy is likely to do. Very prolific.

Not bad. I guess a lot of commentary making for general games, you need to be a bit of a smart ass, try to be funny...

 

Sometimes he was funny, sometimes a bit annoying. He did rip on some stuff, but he gave some praise too. Really funny when he did the rope swing 'this is stupid, dumb dumb dumb...oh shit, I made it first try..." lol.

Yes, rope swinging needs love.

 

I usually prefer walkthrough videos without some annoying kid's voiceovers. But this guy isn't a kid for sure and he doesn't annoy me at all.

 

The only minor issue: he is a little too jumpy with the mouse. It's a different kind of art to play a game or to record a screencap -- in the latter you should act more like a cameraman, slower and smoother movement etc.

I enjoyed while watching. He's talking in a good way compared to some of talktive commenters who make my ears blood. Since he's newbie it's another reason to watch. :)

 

I recorded a video of the mission "how it's supposed to be", incluing door locking & listening and body shouldering with different route. Feel free to link this video to him. He needs this most.

I think this will be a rather unique insight into a newbies first time thoughts when playing the mod, watching and listening to what about the mod he likes\dislikes, what surprises him what he hates or what things grow on him. Could point out things that need addressing that others have grown used to. Just a thought. And since it's all recorded it's even better lol.

Wow I knew water arrows would stream water down but I didn't know by that much. Never actually tried it.

 

Also he had the right point with the crates. The Half Life style of worldsim is so annoying to deal with after playing TDM.

 

Lol@ what's this do? what's that do? herp derp ... *throws pot down*

Funny, I think that's how a lot of people are. They may give it a quick try and give up on it, but they play more and they realize it is quite good.

I think that's the main issue we've had with the TTLG crowd personally. Possibly worse there because a lot of those people have seen it develop further and still have the earlier day impressions, where as someone who plays 1.07 first will be more impressed.

      Boris Johnson's resignation does not change the fact that Australia is home to 29 million kangaroos and Wales has a population of just over three million.

      If the Australian kangaroos were to invade Wales, one resident would have to fight almost ten kangaroos at a time.

      Deathloop – what a mess of a game. I'd love to see a post-mortem on it some day. I hope Arkane is doing okay though.

      Be honest: Who of you have actually finished Cuphead? This game is freaking tough! It might even be harder than Sekiro. Dark Souls is a joke in comparison to Cuphead! :-D
