Guess who's rising from the grave soon ;)

The re-return of the Zeph! Maybe!? :D

That's the idea. I have two episodes recorded and rendering as we speak. The first will be up tomorrow, I reckon.

Awesome! I'm looking forward to those. It's good to see you happier and back making videos again, as I know you've been through some tough times lately.

It's been a while since I posted about a SR Let's Play, but I notice that InkEyes recently posted a new video. It's the first video I've watched of the latest build. He goes through explaining the mechanics, dies a few times, heh, but seems to be having fun with it.

There was also a vid by Gambit017, but I haven't had the time to check that out yet. Here it is for those interested.

A nice full run by InkEyes.

A good run this, interesting choices and some tense moments.

Things I noticed, we already sort of knew this, but AllInTheWrist is a bit OP. Sniper Protocol is perhaps a bit too strong. I noticed a couple of typos...drat! One more thing, the visibility of the map locations when using those backtracking teleporters is bad. Very bad. I don't suppose the engine guys -- and by engine guys I pretty much just mean Ptarth, heh -- could take a look at the colours used, and maybe tweak those so visibility is better?

There was also an unfortunate case of the video being falsely copyright claimed for some reason by some other party which is super frustrating. The video is still up, but the monetization was claimed. I discussed it with InkEyes and he was understanding about the situation, but that type of thing shouldn't happen. Very frustrating.

That sort of thing happening is what I often call an example of "Youtube Quality" [insert exaggerated thumbs-up here].   Usually as a result of some, ahem, "feature" that wasnt necessary in the first place.  This one's even dumber than most though, isnt it?  If I recall correctly this bit is handled by automated bots. Because, you know, brainless AIs are the perfect things to use for this.

And speaking of Youtube Quality, I go to look at the video, and am immediately beset by some of my favorite Youtube Glitches.  Which of course are indeed the result of "features".   I REALLY wish they'd stop adding totally useless crap that nobody asked for, and maybe FIX something before doing that.  They wont, though.


Cool to see new videos though.  Watching someone else playing this is usually very entertaining.

The misclaiming on Youtube can't be dealt with by Arcen in any unfortunately. :/ Youtube's system is entirely broken and completely stacked in favor of the one who makes the claim unfortunately. But if he contests the claim all money will be put in limbo until it's resolved, which ALWAYS ends with them dropping the claim as they have no legal right to do it.
