RT Podcast Let's Play: Think of the Children

Brandon pretty much screams for the entire Let's Play and refuses to listen to Gus' advice...which is weird because he refuses to use the shout function in the game.

    Well, now we know that Barbara was right, Gavin might actually make a good dad. As for Brandon, well there are always nannies and mannies.

      Did you sign up for sponsorship on a different account? It would explain why this account you're commenting with doesn't have the First star next to your name and why you're still being charged.

    Considering he works at such a video game-centric company, it's baffling how much Brandon doesn't understand the basic concepts of video games. It's like he inherently rejects the notion of cause and effect.

      Probably because Brandon's job at the company doesn't have him coming into contact with video games constantly unlike Gavin and Gus

    This was.....very hard to make it through, but I want it known that I'm a HUGE fan of the return of the RT podcast let's play. But, let's plays need chemistry. The previous RTP LP's had good chemistry. This one.....not so much.


    I just believe Brandon was trying too hard to play this like an AH member. I think he ignored the rules purposefully, and neglected the plans set forth by Gavin and help from Gus to portray a feeling of how Geoff kinda ignores Jack and does his own thing, and overreacted yelling at Gavin or the game like Michael does when things go south in....anything, or doesn't listen to anyone like so many stories of Jeremy in the AH office.


    The only problem with this is......Brandon. He isn't an AH member. He should not TRY to be an AH member. He should have just played the game and had a conversation behind it like previous RTP LP's. But, it's been shown in other content that Brandon is a very imitate-able personalaity. Not in the sense that he is imitate-able, but that's he imitates other people. I think he felt there was a predisposed idea the fans have when we hear "let's play" that he tried to portray that didn't work here.


    My only recommendation for RT podcast let's plays in the future, is have Gus in the driver seat. Gus is the face of the RT podcast, so he should be the player of RT Podcast let's plays. And if playing more 2 player cooperative games, like this one is designed to be, the person should have good chemistry with Gus. I know Gus wants the guests to be more involved in the lets plays, but something here didn't work.

    Loved this as it was pretty much Gus taking Gavin and Brandon aside to teach them how to be parents of the RT staff (which was a bonus lol).

    Brandon playing games is the worst. He ignores the controls, the game's directions, outside help (Gus), his teammate (Gavin), and just runs around screaming and asking questions that have already been answered.

    It's nice to see the rt podcast letsplays coming back. Although, while I can detect the difference in audio, it is hardly distracting. Brandon just did as Brandon does.

    The audio on these are atrocious... I know they don't do these all the time, but this is almost unwatchable. I want to turn it up to hear gus, but I don't want brandon screaming in my god damn ear every 2 minutes. Levels are totally unbalanced. Love the content, just hard to watch when I'm constantly turning it up and down.

    I'm not sure what it is specifically about the Podcast LP's but the audio balancing seems to be all over - like the output SEEMS too low, and then the shouting happens and it's WAY too high, so I'm not sure if they're not close enough to the mics or they need to adjust levels while recording or if the master is just too quiet or what but this is something I've noticed consistently throughout these

    I'm sorry, Paula's dad, but if you watch this, you'd see that maybe Brandon and Paula not having children might be for the better if Brandon's gonna place them below burgers and beach towels/umbrellas on the chain of priorities...

      Seriously. Watching a lets play when people don't bother to learn the controls is very frustrating to watch, especially when there are only THREE damn buttons.

    Brandon always focuses on the weirdest stuff when he's playing a video game. Sometimes there's no overarching plot and it's just a game.

    I like the dynamic of these podcast lets plays, but this game just looks way too stressful and high strung to be enjoyable for more than 15 minutes.

      I like Brandon. I think it was just that this game was a bit too high speed and stressful for him to function well. Well, okay, Brandon never functions "well", but he was a bit more all over the place and confused than usual. Also definitely could have benefited from his audio track being lowered a bit, particularly during his shouts. First time in a while I had to lower the volume on a video just for one person.....

    Are they not understanding that the kids are jumping in the pool/water because they like it? Only save them when the triangle appears... Simple mechanic how can they miss it?! Happy faces and cool faces = points. Or am I missing something?

    I wanted to watch this video but whats with the audio? i mean seriously stop with the yelling. How are you not blowing out the mic? I like the new lets play podcast series but I can't watch if there is going to be this much yelling. Spent most of the video raising and lowering the volume. It was very irritating.

      Unfortunately a lot of AH/RT gameplay shows are going this way, and I've had to stop watching a few (especially Play Pals, or Gavin- or Michael-led content since they're consistently the loudest) due to the incessant shouting and lack of audio editing.


      Part of what makes AH fun to watch/listen to is the genuine reactions while playing games, and at times that is going to include shouting, being scared, or yelling in competitive settings.  That's all well and good.  But there's a right way and a wrong way to include those reactions without we the audience having to constantly adjust the volume on our end.


      The "right" way is to edit down the audio peaks and normalize the volume so it's at least somewhat consistent - since Gavin and Michael in particular don't back away from their mics when making unexpected loud noises, the editor could easily look at their waveforms and say "Oh, wow, that's a huge spike, maybe back that down a bit."  We still get the full experience, but don't leave with an earache.


      The "wrong" way is to just dump all audio tracks into the video file, sync everything up, and leave it as-is.  Even the AH guys regularly comment in videos about how loud someone's being, and sure enough, when the final video gets posted that person is still really loud.


      I've been an RT fan since '03, followed AH from the beginning, and have enjoyed every minute of the ride.  That said, if I walk into a room and someone's shouting loudly enough that it makes my ears physically hurt, I turn around and leave the room.  I just don't want this to be another room I have to leave.
