So, I've been meaning to get around to posting about the videos I've been making on the Let's Play Community channel for a while now, and what better time than when it's on hiatus? I'm actually serious, it gives me a convenient way to put everything in one post without worrying it'll get too outdated, lol.
Primarily, I make Why You Should Plays, which is really fun and gives me a chance to showcase games I love. Some of them are underrated, some are in greatest hits collections, but I love them all. The first video I made was for Jak II:
People seemed to like it, which was nice, especially since it was my first video on the channel. After it went up, @PhoenixFilms reached out to invite me to join the LPC Discord and make videos with the rest of the community, which has been a ton of fun as well. I've made WYSPs for Ico, Portal, Spyro: Year of the Dragon, and Shadow of the Colossus myself, but I've also been a part of several community videos, including a group WYSP for Dead by Daylight, courtesy of @DBenitez87
It's been a chaotic few months, but really fun, and I look forward to getting back in the swing of things when the channel's back up (particularly since I was having a blast writing a WYSP for Stardew Valley, lol). In the meanwhile, I did want to share a couple more videos that didn't get a chance to be featured.
The first is a WYSP for The Last Guardian, which only feels appropriate since I've done videos for Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, lol. I'm hoping this'll eventually get to make it on the LPC channel, but in the meanwhile, I did want to share it:
(Per the LPC journal post about the hiatus, I've removed the intro/outro from these videos and LPC symbol from the thumbnails, which is why that thumbnail looks like the bottom half is missing something, lol)
The second video is actually the first one I ever made for the channel, though it never got put up because several people submitted similar videos and they could only pick one, which makes perfect sense. Still, I'm proud of the compilation I made of the first two games Achievement Hunter and Funhaus played against each other in Dead by Daylight and may yet make another for the second pair of videos purely for fun (and a little bit at my sister's request), lol.
I was so proud of that thumbnail at the time. So proud, lol.
And that's the update. Hopefully I'll get in the habit of making updates more than once every six months eventually, lol.
