I laughed. Hard.

Also how about Bayonetta for the next one? It gets rather silly which seems to be good for these types of things :-p

That was quite fun. I went through all of the episodes. The only time I really got frustrated was, as MG pointed out, when you could've run past the Grippers with the passage spell. Other than that, it was pretty fun just hanging out with Paul and Graham. I think I would have to see it with guests before I know if it's the concept of GPLP or simply the fact that it's Graham and Paul hanging out; the chemistry, I suspect, is what's really entertaining.

If you get one of these up around the time the Unskippable goes up, you could get the Escapist to link to the GPLP on the Unskippable video page.

Out of curiosity, Graham and/or Paul, do you guys have a lineup of games you're intent on doing, or are you making this more of a do-it-as-we-finde-it deal?

I hope they're goinge to do Hybride Heavene myselfe, thene theye can see howe goode the game actuallye is.

The one thing I miss from the last Let's Play is the Chat. The Chat is nice because you can talk with other viewer and comment on the silliness happening at that point in time making the whole experience more engaging.

Also you missed checking the church for one of those passage ways. If there was a chat we could have yelled at you to go back.

You do know that a Ducat is an actual currency right?

But anyway, just started watching them and I noticed that.
Now in to number 3!

@Littleman Yeah, we were going to check it when we went back, but we never ended up doing it.

@JenSev We know Ducats are real. They just sounds funny!

Seeing as how you wont/can't do it live (I don't blame you) if there was a way to set up a viewing session like you can with synchtube, it would be the best of both worlds. You can record it before hand and everyone can come together at one time and watch and interact with each other as though it were live.

I might be the only one who misses that chat part, but as I said, it makes the whole viewing experience much more enjoyable. Especially for how long it runs.

Ah. Sorry, my bad. I'm just now watching episode 9, so I haven't gotten to that part yet.

Speaking of part 9. Not to sound overly critical or anything(because I really am enjoying this LP so far, honest!), but if you answer your phone in the middle of a recording session in the future, you might wanna go ahead and edit that part out. Especially if nothing entertaining happens when you do.

As someone who has tried to make a LP of my own(and failed miserably, in case you're curious), I can tell you for sure that that is a definite way to lose credibility very quickly.

Registered just to say this is great!

Please, do more of these.

One question, though: why didn't you try to block? >.>

Alright just finished all 12, gotta say awesome job. It's nice to see that the things that piss me off in games also have the same effect on other people. The Gripper cave being one example, as well as bosses where they give you absolutely no indication of what you are supposed to be doing and you end up flailing around for an hour before figuring it out.

I have to say I love the idea of enemies who lie to you and make up shit to get you not to kill them.

Great Job, maybe the nest one could be War for Cybertron with Matt as a colour commentator?

But Matt quite enjoyed WfC, I thought.

Only downside is that WfC is actually a GOOD game, so their reactions may be less hilarious.

Damn, I just checked and there isn't any offline co-op, so they wouldn't be able to do that unless they had two copies and set up a mini LAN party for the LP

So it took me two days of work but I watched all the videos and very much enjoyed them as background noise that I occasionally laughed at. I would very much like to watch more videos. The Castlevania idea sounds great.

i saw someone make a suggestion before so i feel its okay for me too and if you dont want it just stop reading here and we forget this ever happened
the original Tales of Symphonia for Gamecube.
you did the sequel for unskippable and that game actually is fun but the voice acting is just in need insulting.

While from an objective, technical standpoint the phones were a distracting intrusion, I couldn't help but get a tickle out of hearing Kathleen (I think) over the phone. I'm of two minds as to whether the phones should be silenced during further GPLP.

Graham's right, it's not professional, but for prying fans it's awesome. I'm still in the "turn it off" crowd.

An excellent LP, it made for great entertainment. I am also surprised that she had so much clothing on, um, in the front.

Loved watching the whole thing, even if it took me a while to finish. I personally found the phone call bit funny, but I understand not doing it in the future is a better plan.

I have to agree with thatlaurachick, not many heroines in games seem to understand the need for armor that covers their body, despite the fact that her back was completely open, the fact that she actually wore pants was very unexpected.
