Hey guys,

I haven't been on for way too long! Final year uni and work have kept me busy for the last few months.

I was, as most people end up doing, browsing through random youtube videos when I was procrastinating. In doing that, I came across this:
http://youtu.be/NfvFahY8sSY

For those who don't feel like watching, it's a simultaneous playthrough by 4 guys, who are planning on working their way through all the games.

The painful (to me) part about this is that these guys don't have much of an idea of the games, at least compared to most of us on the forums. Hence I had the idea that we could do our own version!

Of course this is going to take a lot of organisation. What's more, we are all in different parts of the world (at least I am, I'm in Australia). So we need to find a time when 4 (good number I think, but I'm open to suggestions) can dedicate an hour or so block to play in. Also, only being able to play a (relatively) short amount of time each block will mean that we are in for a LONG time to complete the game.

Anyway, we can get to particulars later. What I want to know, would there be an interest in doing this? Perhaps combining it with a challenge to make it more interesting?

I'm keen.

EDIT: Also found thishttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMFG8rzNPRc

EDIT2: and another! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGaL8Ifc2Y0

It sounds cool, but I don't think I could dedicate the time necessary to do it.

I would tentatively be down to do this, but there are a lot of big Ifs for me:

-Right now i have a new ac adapter coming for my computer, so hopefully that makes it work again
-My laptop might not be powerful enough to record and play at the same time, we'd have to see
-I don't have a decent mic
-I'm not very interesting
-More than just me would have to be interested in it for me to want to.

I wouldn't be able to do it either, I'm afraid. :( I'm crazy lazy and just don't have that kind of time.

Ok, I had an idea that could make this more viable - we play PokeMMO.

This way only 1 person would actually have to record, and we would effectively all be playing on the same game! Like a proper co-op sort of thing. Should still be able to play through a challenge of some sort ie. Nuzlocke, monotype etc. Thoughts?

That's only a great idea if you're the patient kind. I never had the patience to go through PokeMMO >.< it's slow and laggy at points and yeah >.>
Truth be told, I like to play my pokemon games alone. So sure, the people at PokeMMO worked hard & whatnot, but I think a proper Pokemon MMORPG would be different than just running through a game like FireRed/LG, the only difference being that there's other people around you.

@mamoswineftw: Your youtube links were very cool, and I'd probably have enough free time to do something like that, but I have no idea how to get 4 people recording like that at once... Anywho, I'd love to play PokeMMO with someone through a challenge! Now that's easy and classic. :D I have an account or two, and if things are the same since I've played, I should be able to do up to 3 new games.

Hi fellow Swablus, long time no see

My brothers have been playing pokemon the last few days, and i got a hold of a White 2 i can restart, so i decided to finally get through the last round of my Bug UMC at least.

I think I will keep a bookmark for the challenge forum this time around, so even if i don't feel like doing a challenge right then, i won't just drop off the face of the forum for half a year again

Edit: As for the topic on this page: I'd be down for some PokeMMO with some of you guys. It will be a pain in the butt to coordinate a working timing for an Australian, an European and an American though
I have semi-summerbreak already though, so if its planned beforehand i can maybe work something out.

Anyone besides me having trouble continuing their challenges now that school's over? I did most of mine on the bus. So now I'm pretty much down to 2 hours a week for challenges compared to 12 hours a week during the semester. Need to get motivated but the motivation is lacking. :/

I have that problem in general, lol. This summer I have been pretty motivated though, enough to finish White 2. (yes shocking isn't it? It's not that I am just busy, I am also lazy) I would suggest trying to power through a challenge you are close to finishing. Or take a break. Just remember where you stopped

I took a break during school to focus on my finals and omg it took me forever to get back into the groove of playing after that. I'm fine now though. I'm making pretty good progress on both my challenges! I'm trying to finish up though so I can give Unova a rest and give gen III some love. Gonna rekindle my love for FRLG hopefully. But still haven't decided what I want to do with it. idk if I wanna do a challenge or a regular playthrough or what.
