I'm guessing many of you guys watch LPs on YouTube. The concept seemed a bit odd to me at first, but I found myself cracking up at 4PlayerPodcast watching old reels of Brad trying to get through survival horror games without screaming. From there, I went on to watch DavidR (X) with X's Adventures in Minecraft, the series that got me into the game at all.
Then there was Coe. I started watching Coe's Quest at around episode 70, and it took a few days (maybe even weeks) to get caught up to where I would be on the same page when a new episode released. X got me into the game, but it was Coe that gave me a passion for it. Coe's Quest epitomized what an LP should be; laid back, witty, funny, intelligent, creative.
I think we all saw the end coming, but that doesn't make it any easier. If you've watched this series, you'll know what I'm talking about. If you haven't, you should watch a few episodes, even if you don't like Minecraft. I probably only talked with Coe a handful of times, but I can tell he's an all-around great guy. Though he'll keep a presence on Twitter, Reddit, and Twitch, I can say that YouTube lost one of the greats today.
Best of luck Coe.
Have you guys seen this FFVII parody series? They've been updating monthly since July 2012 and are almost through the first disc. Episode 11 (the Wutai side quest) uploaded last week, and they've said 12 is already in the works. Loads of hilarious content, and I'm looking forward to more from these guys.
I've been getting a lot of Anook updates lately, so I thought I would check it out again, maybe get a little more active in posting, unprofessional though I may be.
I started playing FFV again a few days ago. It's one of the few I've never beaten (though I did get to Exdeath's final form), and I thought it would be nice to take another shot. It may not be a fan-favorite among the series, but the job system is phenomenal.
Introversion Software mentioned this article in a tweet last night, particularly about the debate in the comments about whether or not something as serious as incarceration should be made into a video game. I expect it to be a brilliant game myself, and have been looking forward to this one as much as many of the big-name blockbusters.
Besides, Introversion already made quite the somber nuclear holocaust game through their Defcon title.
After a brief hiatus, two of my favorite Minecraft LPers started recording again - Prebz and Arnerino of No Games For Young Men. They sound a little awkward (and I think Prebz especially doesn't like talking by himself at the beginning), but that's always been part of the appeal. I love that most LPers are pro/wizards now, but it's fun watching people still having the adventure of discovery.
Okay, this one isn't gaming-related, but I hope you'll let me slide by this once. I've been working on these short stories at the same time as my novel, and the stories join together for the in-progress Ereptor series. The first two can be read rather independently of each other, and the third one should be out on Amazon (hopefully) next week. Both stories (or all three, if you count the one still in the works) are set in the southeastern United States a few years after the outbreak of a zombie virus that destroyed most of humanity.
"Siren" is the second story in the series ("Freya" being the first). I'm leaving this as free-to-read on my WordPress account for a week or so. I hope you guys enjoy!
If you've never had a chance to read Brandon Sanderson's work (Elantris, The Stormlight Archive, Warbreaker, and co-author of the last three books of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time to name a few), you definitely should. I haven't read the MIstborn trilogy yet, but it is near the top of my reading list, and everyone that I know that's read it has loved it.
The point here is that Mistborn does take place in an amazing world and has one of the most incredible magic systems I've heard of, and a prequel story (story and in-game dialogue all by Sanderson) should be out in 2013. Take a look at the trilogy sometime, or download the free-to-read Warbreaker from his site. Either way, you won't be disappointed.
