[quote=“BeerBeer, post:8, topic:11331”]Heh. You have the “Let me sleep just 5 more minutes” voice. Unforch I’m on too much caffeine to focus and scrutinize your gameplay now.
There’s a youtuber named SilverDragonLord who, I think, makes the best CDDA letsplays (disregarding some derping and inattentiveness). He plays fast, which I’m accustomed to. I think that not very many people can do what he does, which is fast CDDA gameplay and simultaneous fluent commentary. If there’s someone to look up to in this area, it’s him.
Another youtuber named Aavak played pretty well back in the day (with solid commentary). I didn’t like his choice of tileset though.
A guy named RyconRoleplays aims to perform, well, roleplaying stuff. I guess he’s decent at that, and he’s got his audience, but I find his playstyle insufferably slow to my taste. As far as I’m concerned, he could do serious voice acting.
I mean, I’ve watched quite a few CDDA letsplayers. Most of them mumble and/or they have a bad mic, so uhhh you might want to put some energy into your playing/commenting. Your audio quality is good, so at least you have that covered. As far as I can see, you have all the hope in the world. My advice is always that… just… try to be entertaining. Try to do something really insane, glorious or grandiose.
Get into glorious trouble and get out of the said glorious trouble with grace. Like, build a huge vehicle with a ton of guns and wreck up a zombie-infested city. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a player wreak glorious havoc in a CDDA letsplay. I just might state that most CDDA players play too carefully, but then again, witnessing someone take pointless and unnecessary risks is off-putting, too.
I’d also suggest performing any lengthy house/vehicle building projects off-camera. I always skip 1-5 minutes forward if I suspect that the upcoming minutes are going to be spent on something menial. But DO give a quick tour about the major features of the house/car afterwards on-camera. And even though I say ‘do this’ or ‘do that’ on-camera, or off-camera, record everything regardless and cut out the bad parts later, or simply start recording again if you feel that the menial phase is being interrupted by something that’s worth recording/watching.
I said to “be entertaining”, but that’s always subjective. Some people want a YouTube channel that’s like background radio noise. Others might want to witness some seriously skilled gameplay - a ninja at work. Some might just want to have severe lolz. Funniest letsplayer IMO? SplatterCatGaming. Hilarious and intelligent, and I’m often blown away by his commentary and wit. The guy used to be a radio jockey BTW. He’s never done CDDA though.[/quote]
Haha yea I am a little jet lagged from my trip to Europe and I am trying to stay a bit more up beat! I will check out some of these guys. I have watched a lot of Silverdragonlord and he was the one to get me into CDDA. I have a lot to learn I think about both CDDA and YT. Thanks for the heads up!
