So I think I might be ready to dabble a little more in the arts of performing Let's Plays.

However;

I am in need of things to LP.
Now I know that you lot most likely know of plenty of games that could do with a mite extra publicity, and I'm pretty sure you can see where I'm going with this...
Suggestions!
This little amateur podcaster wants some material to work with, and methinks It'll be a mutual publicity boost for both myself and for whatever I'm LP'ing. Steelraven7's Dawn was the first to get this treatment, albeit in a let's-see-how-this-goes spontanteous decision type of attitude, and I'm quite certain I'll improve with each video. Thus, I hope to eventually become entertaining enough to actually to warrant having asked for your help in the first place.
So uh.
Yeah.

If there's anything you think I should or could make an LP or other type of video with, please do suggest it right here in thishere thread!

    I was hoping for some smaller, less bulky games to LP so's I can get comfortable in the routine and develop my abilities a bit before I move on to the bigger projects =p
    Thief collection would be a good idea for such a later thing, that's true, even though it's a bit old.
    If I'd be doing older games I think I'd also consider playing Rune Classic, better known to myself as simply 'Rune'.
    But if possible I'd like to stick to a few more modern games to begin with, of the short kind, so my warmups actually have some worth :3

    Singleplayer would be easier, since there's less variables, but honestly that doesn't matter all too much

    Receiver might actually be a good idea!

    Halo 1 is actually not too bad and would be okay, if a little bit long, for a short series of LP.
    Unfortunately Halo's not going to be as entertaining as an LP for two reasons:
    1) Halo is old and 'popular' enough that near everyone already known what it is and how it goes, so nothing I say will be surprising in the least.
    2) I've already played it and have seen so many parodies that nothing will come as a surprise anymore to myself, resulting in rather dull commentary.

    Also I'm not too fond of shooters, but that reason doesn't really count considering I've quite enjoyed some TF2 and Planetside 2 and even CS:GO recently =p
    (None of those qualify for LPs either though)

    To 1: I like watching things I played to death, for nostalgic reasons.

    You could also make an LP about the new Magicka DLC's. It would be multiplayer but there's enough to talk about because of the randomness.

    An LP of Magicka's new DLC... that's a good plan. But ideally I'd do it together with a couple of peeps, so it's suitable, but not quite as a first one.

    You could LP some tekkit- I think a lot of the community would benifit from that knowledge.

    Would Tekkit be a single commentary and the rest on MC chat if needed or multi-commentary?

    Just wait for the new map to get up and running- It'll generate a bit of interest that way.

    Edit: It occurs to me that you might also want to try your hand at shoutcasting.

    Tekkit would work as a multi-commentary in the way that I could go explore it and ask the gurus how things work. How's that? =D
    Aye, Dave, waiting for the new map, that's a grand plan.
    And what on earth is shoutcasting?

    Oh- shoutcasting is where you are an announcer for a multiplayer game like Starcraft, DOTA or League of Legends. Kind of like the guys on ESPN.

    Basically, all it requires is that you have a spectator mode in the game. I've practiced a little on some recorded League of Legends games myself- I don't know if it's my thing, though I really would like to get more into it.

    There's a lot of people on Twitch that do the shoutcasting that suck, but the few that are good actually make decent money doing it.

    The first requirement for a shoutcaster is a good microphone. The second is likeability, the third is talent and the fourth is knowledge of the game.

    Welp, I've got the first down, at least. (THANKS TO ALL YOU GUYS <33333333) That's a good start, ain't it?
    Does seem worth looking into.
