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 think everyone tends to like the first ones they played the best, and 7 was mine. 10 was great, and I still think it has one of the best combat and leveling systems of any RPG. 12...didn't stick with me for very long, but I want to play it again soon and give it another shot.

Played 12 for the story, was cool after playing FF Tactics.

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.

Great to have you back! Are you laying it on iOS? I had a blast with the iOS port of Final Fantasy III, maybe I'll pick up IV and V too.

I'm playing the PSN version. From what I understand, it's nearly identical to the SNES version, but the PSN has noticeable lag with dialog boxes. Everything else is fine, but having the same text box occasionally pop up 3 or 4 times when trying to close it gets a bit frustrating. Those iOS ports definitely make me want to look into getting an Apple product or two, haha.

Yeah, the iOS port of III was really well done. Not a single glitch or crash for the whole play-through. And the touchscreen really works well for FF.

Awesome parody from two of my favorite Minecrafters.

Penny Arcade: On the Rainslick Precipice of Darkness 3 is going to be developed by the same guy(s?) behind Breath of Death VII and Cthulhu Saves the World? That's... Huh... I'm excited.

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.

I want to make a list of games I'd love to see my favorite LPers play. Trying to think of things they would actually want to play, though. I've got ideas rolling for this. :P

And definitely a "just for fun" thing. I don't want to be That Guy.

It means I'm not an old-school gaming purist, but I wish Sony would patch in some more save points on these PS1 Classics.

want to know my favourite thing about console emulators? Save states... that's all I have to say on the matter... oh wait, "screw purists" also comes to mind... then again, I was a PC gamer in the 80s so not being able to save seems silly to me...
