Swearing, vulgarity.

I am going to attempt to do a regular YouTube show about videogames and stupid jokes.

This is the pilot. It has bad art what I done, but I have an artist on board who is actually mad talented, so eps 2 onwards ought to look a lot nicer.

There are inconsistencies here because I was getting a handle on the look and feel, but I have it down now.

Just over 8 mins, hope people like. Any feedback at all would be great.

I enjoyed. This makes a worthy substitute for Gaming in the Major Years.

This won't matter to most viewers, but the Japanese on the "Studio Gippli" splash screen reads "Maker Gippli." It also indicates a hard G, but maybe that's intentional since the soft G in "Ghibli" is the opposite of what a lot of people expect.

Yeah - I used a direct translate thing, cos I thought it might be funnier if I didn't even know what it said?

If you know the correct Japanese (it sounds like you obviously do), then I would love to see it so I can add it in.

Shame on you for ruining Undertale.





Also wow I didn't realize just how nostalgic Alex Kidd music made me feel.

Good stuff. I liked it. I was entertained.

I don't know if it's what you're going for but you don't spend much time on any segment.

Also, the scrolling text could be slowed down. It's way too hard to read without pausing.

The titles at the beginning are meant to be stupidly fast, but I will slow down the credit roll some.

I liked it, more please.

Man, that first Duke Nukem game, that takes me back. I played around with the level editor for it for ages, I remember making a giant labyrinthine monstrosity where I just kept added more and more to the first level I messed around with. It was probably the first video game editor-thing I ever messed around with, come to think of it.

So you can thank Duke Nukem for my contribution to the Talking Time Bros games, I guess!

Considering its predecessors and its future Duke Nukem is a pretty good DOS platformer imo. Fell into the usual Apogee trap of episode 1 being waaaay higher quality than the "registered" eps.

Thanks for the feedback so far. Later eps are going to be more consistent with the Master System aesthetic. I'm bringing in an artist with talent for thumbnails, but I'll probably keep my dumb doodles for the interstitial bits. I think they contribute to the personal feel I'm going for, like this is MY THING

Really well done, and funny on a professional comedy writer level.

I particularly like your scattershot approach, just tackling whatever games and topics you want. That also makes it feel like YOUR THING.

I watched the Duke Nukem segment three times before I was able to make out the phrase "risk/reward at its aspartamiest," but it was worth the wait.

I agree the writing was sharp and the performance was good and I liked that thing that duke nukethem said about the wage gap.

I am always so excited when there are new madhair videos about games.

Do what you want, but I like that you don't spend too much time on any one thing. If I want to see a humorless and tedious nerd drone on endlessly about a game telling WaCkY not-actually-jokes, I can find a billion LPs on youtube doing just that.

This series of compact and well crafted commentary across different subjects is something different and special.

Yes, this exactly. This is the sentiment I wanted to express, but couldn't think of a way to do it without sounding sarcastic and prickish. estragon thought of a way though, so I'm seconding.

This video had me cracking up at several points. Really like the format of the video.

"The controls feel good, like a naked young man." Bravo.

I don't think you came off that way at all.

I won't go on an anti-Youtube screed or anything here as it's not the place for it, but I spend very little time on YT watching anything videogame related because I think so much of it is garbage (mostly for the reasons estragon said). In fact, I think most of what I watch/listen to is game soundtracks, and that is about it.

This is not garbage. This has a good amount of sarcasm in it but is not insufferable. This has good jokes, but they're delivered well, which is not something I see much of on YT.

I like this and your one credit videos a lot, please keep doing them.

I appreciate this massively, because - and I'm going to come off as quite nasty now, though I don't mean it - I hate how much of circle-jerk gaming Youtube tends to be, how infested with memes and how incestuous it is with everybody promoting everyone else, everybody seems to know everyone else, and there seems to be this en vogue way to do things which is on-camera, hi-def, sarcasm, screeching, hard cuts, and it doesn't feel sincere and it doesn't feel like the kind of thing something as (time to lose friends) fucking silly as talking over videogames actually merits. Like here's my 4k resolution review of Sonic 3, here I am in frame, here's all my gaming stuff neatly arranged behind me. I don't get it. I don't know why that's necessary. I get into it briefly at the beginning of the episode when I complain about appearing on-camera.

Ahem, went off on a bit of a rant there. But yeah. I appreciate it because my whole ethos when it comes to gaming/Youtube "content" (shits self) is basically - and was on Gaming in the Major Years, too - (gesturing to The Completionist, Caddicarus, etc) "See that? Now do the exact opposite."

Incidentally, I don't think anyone at all has come off as dickish/unpleasant in this thread other than me, 'cos it's kind of my aura.

You basically wrote my anti-YT screed for me, thanks haha

But yeah, you highlight a lot of the reasons why I don't do much YT gaming watching. It seems so many people are trying to create a cult of personality around themselves - which I understand is part of the way you generate followers on YT/the internet in general - but so many of them are, at best, unoriginal, that I can't stand it. For example, awesome games done quick, while not the worst thing out there by a long shot, has a constant shot of whoever is playing the game over to the right, which is unnecessary and distracting and so goddamn self-aggrandizing that I just can't take the whole thing seriously.

I really need to shut up now because I think I've said some/most of this elsewhere and I don't want to piss anyone off in your thread about a show that you make and is good

But yeah, this was delightful. Short, punchy, and funny throughout, and my brain is irrationally fond of that black-on-white crosshatch SMS look. In particular, I really like the little intro sequence at the 36-second mark.

If you need an idea for a box art design, might I suggest "Stuart Gipp vs. everyone else's bad opinions"?
