The Process: 2016 (or, “where do LPs come from?”)

Years ago I wrote this blog post summarizing the process of making a YouTube LP series. Recently I was asked by a Twitch viewer if I’d make a video about the process. I don’t think it’d make for an interesting video (plus capturing and editing hours of Photoshop footage doesn’t sound fun), so I’m writing […]

Let’s play Sonic Adventure 2

The Sonic Adventure 2 LP series is behind me at long last. Thank. Merciful. Christ. This series taught me quite a bit about how I need to approach game selections going forward, especially requests.

This game was requested for part of the Talking Time fundraiser, which came with a not-exactly-small price tag attached to […]

The Science of BONK: A Methodology for Quantifying the Violence in River City Ransom

Today I put the finishing touches on River City Ransom, which Dan (KefkaFloyd) and I played back in December. Please to be enjoying the playlist:

Throughout the LP I kept a running tally of how we were dispatching each dude. What sorts of violence were Dan and I most drawn to? The people had […]

Merry Day-After-Christmas

I can’t imagine anyone reads this blog who isn’t already subscribed on YouTube, but just in case, I added a widget to display my most recently-updated video. That was really difficult and took all day, and I think maybe it doesn’t work all the way, because it doesn’t look like it’s displaying my Little Nemo […]


I started uploading Let’s Play Metal Gear yesterday. You should go and watch that, if you haven’t. One of the first things I say in the first video of the series is that the game is not about sneaking or killing dudes, but about mapping. I mapped the hell out of Metal Gear, and if […]

So… I guess we’re back?

I woke up today to find my YouTube account had been reinstated. So… happy day? I still don’t know why it was terminated in the first place; YouTube’s e-mail only says something along the lines of “we reviewed your case and it turns out you’re not in violation”. Still, it was good to log in […]

Let’s Play Shantae, coming to a torrent tracker near you!

There hasn’t been any news from YouTube. And if the various complaints and conversations I’ve turned up while researching other folks who were in my position, probably none of us should hold our breath.

But the time for mourning is over, and the time for rebuilding is nigh! This post is about my plan to […]

Why My YouTube Account Was Terminated

The short answer is, I don’t know.

The closest thing YouTube has given me to a long answer is: “This account has been suspended due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy against spam, gaming, misleading content, or other Terms of Service violations.”

That doesn’t sound like an accurate description of anything I’ve ever […]

Let’s Play Revengers of Vengeance!

Let’s race some chocobos!

Ten videos, plus a gag video at the beginning and a bonus video at the end. Everything clocks in at just under two hours.

This LP was noteworthy in that I had to do some pretty miraculous savegame shuffling in order to create the desired effect. Squall only challenges you on your second play […]
