    Let's Play general

    Post by Tetris on Fri Oct 05, 2012 10:35 pm

    Let's Play is a thing that originated from something awful. It's when people talk over video games and upload it to the internet.In this thread I'll talk about let's play, recommend let's play, and it'll probably just be me talking to myself.

    A lot of good lp's archived from something awful can be found here: http://lparchive.org/

    Some personal recommendations:

    Mario Party by pokecapn (and medibot and Kung-Fu Jesus and MyNameIsKaz

    50 Cent: Blood on the Sand by ChipCheezum and General Ironicus

    Mario or Luigi Superstar Saga by medibot and MyNameIsKaz

    Metroid Fusion by Diabetus (commentary by Diabetus and Slowbeef)

    yeah

    Do not make me go on and on about all the LP's I have watched while having nothing to do.

    This post would literally encompass five times the length of every post on the internet together.

    The problem is you won't be able to see original threads of the recommendations in the OP because you not only have to join something awful but then buy another thing to see threads made after 6 months.

    Also, ChipCheezum just started MGS Peace Walker.

    Dangan what?

    Dangan Ronpa (or its slightly longer full name, Dangan Ronpa: Academy of Hope and High School Students of Despair) is a game for the PSP published in Japan by Spike on November 25, 2010. The publisher calls it a "High-speed Mystery Action Adventure". In reality it's mostly a Japanese-style adventure game, but there's some shooting in it. And a little rhythm game. Because of the platform and some of the subject matter, I doubt it will ever be localized for the west. But since it's one of my favorite games of 2010, I thought it's a shame people can't see it.

    There is a general discussion thread about the game and its sequel in Games. Spoilers are allowed there, so be careful.

    So what is it about?

    I guess the best way to describe it is Phoenix Wright meets Battle Royale starring a masochistic teddy bear with Doraemon's voice.

    Sounds good. What about the LP?

    Obviously, I will be translating the game.

    This is a hybrid LP, though most of the time there will only be screenshots. Videos come in in two places: there are some cut scenes that can't be done justice with screen shots (there's one in the very first update!), and some of the action parts will get short videos to supplement the screenshots and show what gameplay is actually like. My guess is that it will be more than a month of updates before we even get there.
    For the most part, this is a very linear game. If you played the Phoenix Wright games you know the drill - there's exactly one place to click at any given time that will trigger the next story event and advance the game. However, there is one part of gameplay that allows for some choice. It doesn't affect the overall story but it allows players to focus on the characters they like. I will open the decision to a vote once we get to that part.

    Normal text is dialogue. Bold text is narration. Italic text is my own additions. The game is ridiculous, knows it, and doesn't really require snarky comments (it sometimes makes these snarky comments itself, in fact). This LP lets the game speak for itself, but adds supplemental information in many places. Information relating to the game itself are marked by the image of Monobear. Information about Japanese culture and translation notes are marked with a small Japanese flag.

    About the translation

    Neither Japanese nor English are my native language, and as such I am not really in the ideal position to translate a game. That said, I did take some translation theory courses and my main fear is that my English prose just isn't good enough. Feel free to copy-edit in your head.
    I don't think super-literal translations are a good thing, and I don't leave Japanese words in just to sound exotic. I don't mind rephrasing passages when it makes the thing sound better. This game is steeped deep in Japanese culture, however, and this isn't a localization (which means I'm keeping the honorifics, and you can't talk me out of it). Don't fear, though - there will be plenty of translation and cultural explanations.

    Attention new readers

    I am currently in the process of editing the first half of the LP, fixing some translation problems and making the text flow better. I'm doing this gradually, so you may notice some small inconsistencies in style as you reach parts I haven't retouched yet.

    Fan art policy

    If you want to create something yourself, go ahead! I'm always happy to see original fan art from people who were introduced to the game by this thread.

    However, because of several prior incidents, if you found some art or video on the internet and you want to post it, confirm with me first. You can PM me or send an email to hopespeakacademy@gmail.com. Fan art often contains spoilers, sometimes subtle. In addition, I may be sitting on some art waiting for the appropriate moment in the story to post it myself.


    A note for people who are not color blind

    Because of the intricacies of the Japanese game rating system, blood in this game is colored pink. Rest assured, though, it is human blood you will be looking at, and it doesn't mean our characters are secretly aliens or elves. If this bothers you too much, I suggest either reading this LP wearing red-tinted glasses or going on a nightlong photoshop color-correction frenzy.

    One last thing

    This game's story is as twisty as they come, and it's a pretty good one. I doubt anyone reading this played the game, but if someone did - :siren: no spoilers :siren:. At all. Not even under a spoiler tag. Speculation is always welcome, though, and there's no need to tag it.
    People who want to be surprised should also avoid looking for fan art and such on the net. It tends to reveal too much.

    the OP of this thread is a very good translator and he also has a habit of ending updates on a cliffhanger so i've read too many updates
