Merged with this thread sticky as questions fit better here than in a separate thread.

Your question is rather confusing though if one has no idea what those people sound like/how they do their dialogue, as well as not knowing what you want to playthrough. =/ Try to elaborate more, please.

I think that'll be cool~ Maybe you could provide caption translators that are in English?

You can add a closed caption text to your youtube video. :3 You'd generally have to make a plain text file, which are saved under txt. You can do this on Wordpad. Then you'll have to transcribe it, and upload it as your captions after you've uploaded your video. Youtube will automatically sync it for you. Or, maybe you can just make it in Window's Movie Maker, if you have it.

If you want to find out more, this video below explains it very clearly:



Hope that helps. :3

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine and I did a Let's Play of Super Mario Land and I want to post it here.
However, I managed to finish the game quicker than expected, and the LP lasted only one part. Is it still okay for me to post it here, seeing how it is only one part?

The.. whole game was only one part? I think that's fine, I suppose. ^^:

Mario Land is one of those games where I've played it so much that I can't not speedrun it.

I have a urge to make a Lets Play of StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, especially the campaign itself, however. Since im playing this on my laptop the quality isnt that good and thats mostly noticeable during the cutscenes. Should i skip them or just play them anyways?

Hey guys, I'm a new member at PokéCommunity and I was thinking that I wanted to do my first Nuzlocke. So I thought that I could just write about it rather than preparing a whole new video. Well, I just wanted you guys to tell me which of theses games should I choose.

Pokémon Light Platinum
Pokémon Volt White
Pokémon Blaze Black 2

Please tell me which of these games should I Nuzlocke.
Appreciate it. Thanks

Hey guys. Which of the following should I Nuzlocke?

Light Platinum
Volt White
Blaze Black

Hi LarvitarBoy,

I think you should go for the game you enjoy playing the most and are also very comfortable with playing. If you're having fun doing the LP of that game, then it makes it easier for us to enjoy your content as well. Personally, I don't really mind which of the games you pick, and I think that most of us share my opinion. I say to just go for whatever game you will be able to produce the better gameplay and commentary from.

If you have any more questions regarding your situation, feel free to ask! I hope that this helped~

If you are going to post the LP, do it on a new thread and remember to use the YouTube tags. If you don't know how to do it you just put the last bit of the YouTube link (e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JACXMILrSNs) between [YOUTUBE] tags. The YouTube tag at the end must have a / before YOUTUBE.

If you have any more queries regarding making a thread and what to/whatnot to include, be sure to read the Let's Play, Guides and Reviews Rules. If you still need help after that you can ask again here, we would gladly help! Or if you would rather want to ask about something that you don't want to post here or see fit to request individual help, the moderator Miss Doronjo.

I REALLY want to do an LP. The only problem is I don't know how I should go about recording my footage. I would either be using my DSI XL, my 3DS XL, or my PS3. What are some good recording tools and software for those systems?

You can purchase a capture 3DS, I forget the site but its around 400 dolars, or you can send them yours and they will customise it for you. Other than that... Just a standard camera.

Hey guys! I've read through the Let's Plays, Guides, and Reviews Rules sticky, but I have a few quick + unanswered questions.

I'm part of a gaming channel that has 4 of us playing games, making Let's Plays, etc. I was wondering if I could make a post for each of the series that we're putting up, or if I can only post about one series at a time? We only have 4-5 series, but most are 7-8 episodes already, with one of them just starting today.

Secondly, if I were to post an in-progress Let's Play, would I have to post about one that's just starting, or could I put my first post up with, say, 7 episodes attached already?

Regardless of answers, thank you for considering my questions, and I'm loving some of the LP's that I'm seeing on this board! Keep 'em up, guys. :]

Hi there!

For the first question, It's up to you, I don't think it matters to much. As for the second, you can put up a LP that's already started, but, you'll need to update your thread with all the videos; and not just links - the actual videos.

Hope that makes sense!

Thank you very, very much! In that case, I'll put up a few Let's Plays that hopefully everybody will enjoy.

Thank you again for the (very quick!) response! :]

So, I'm about halfway done with my Pokemon Gold LP (I've defeated the first Kanto gym, and cleared Johto and the Elite Four completely.)

What is the general consensus on non-Pokemon LPs in this community? I've done some Let's PvP in Star Wars: The Old Republic, and I've got an ongoing series around the Hearthstone beta. I'm also considering some other games like Magi Nation for the GBC, or even the first Dragon Warrior.

If you can get the viewers' interest, then you can LP any game you want. Yes, you'll have the built-in audience for Pokemon LPs because you're posting to a Pokemon forum. That doesn't mean that you, or anyone, should limit themselves to just Pokemon LPs. It just means that it might be a little more difficult to get views/comments.

Pfft I've Let's Played Pokemon in the past and about 20 episodes in I can't get more then 10 views per video. So YOU LIE.

I'd actually recommend doing a different game if even just a side project. There are so many Pokemon Let's Plays, yet sometimes you find games with only 1 or 2 Let's Plays. I reckon you should do what you'd enjoy most.
