I'm a former LPer and speedrunner. Gave up on LPing as after a total of 5 years (and some change), I wasn't really advancing anywhere. And after that kind of time, doing it just for the joy of doing it really isn't enough anymore. Speedrunning is much more peculiar and I'm pretty sure I'll never really give up on that completely. For what it's worth, you can check out my currently dead channel here
And then lo' and behold, I stumble upon the World of Longplays and immediately feel enlightened. I do
enjoy simply recording game footage, but I grew tired of making that extra effort. I do
still have all this wonderful software at my disposal, but I haven't touched either of them in months. I would
probably end up recording commentary-less playthroughs again, but my hatred for Youtube deepens with each novelty they bring up, and my videos would likely continue to utterly miss their mark. World of Longplays therefore seems like the perfect solution to all my problems - I get to record game footage in a much less time-consuming manner (fun for me) and as long as I manage to follow the simple guidelines, it just might get uploaded to a place where someone
might actually give a damn. B)
So, here's hoping I actually pull it off and shape up to be a decent contributor. I shall do my worst.
