PostSubject: retsupurae   Mon Jan 26, 2009 8:28 am

Do any of you guys know about "Let's Play"s? From my understanding, they're videos of people online playing through old games (usually through emulator) and describing the game and what it's about, in order to show people the game who've never played it. A lot of them are really crappy though, and some people comment on them and make fun of them. One example of this is retsupurae:




http://www.youtube.com/user/retsupurae




I guess a simple way of explaining it is like Mystery Science Theater 3000, but making fun of youtube game videos instead of old movies. It's a little hit and miss, but there are some absolutely hilarious piss takes on various videos that these guys (from Something Awful, I believe) have made. They started out mainly covering these "let's plays", but have branched out into making fun of video game reviews and other stuff. Here are a few I recommend checking out (there are links here, but I don't know if you can see them or not):


The Most Shameful Thing In The World (this was on Youtube but got taken down due to copyright claims; it's one of the greatest things I've ever seen though) **also check out The Even More Most Shameful Thing In The World for some more**

The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past

Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes

Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels (done by BillyMC) (retsupurae often revisits BillyMC videos because they love him; this is the first Billy video of theirs')

Let's 'ave a carriage ride! (Super Mario 64)

Let's Freak out! (Mario Kart 64)

Mega Man 8 Pro Tips (the first of many Navigator game reviews, which are almost all unbelievably funny)

Rant Hero: World Tour for the Wii (one of the newest, and one of the funniest in my opinion)




I've been keeping up with new videos posted by these guys for over half a year now, but I haven't really told many people about it until now, since I wasn't sure if it was the kind of thing other people would really be interested in. I hope you guys enjoy it Happy

Maybe posting this here wasn't a good idea.

Have you watched the let's point at metroid one? That was pretty hilarious. And the BillyMC Christmas Adventure.

Yeah, I liked how the mouse was on the screen and the guy didn't seem to even notice it :p I also love the idea of Christmas shopping at McDonalds

EDIT: I didn't link them, but I really like Mega Man X part 26, 28, and 31. They're incredibly lame Tongue

I wonder if they are really just that stupid or they knew they meant pick him something up to eat while she was christmas shopping.

I watched a shitload of their videos but now I'm going through their profile and watching all of them. I've watched like 2 pages so far.

I think maybe they do realize it, or they may have realized it on later viewings, but it's funny to hear them laugh so much at it :p

She accidently went to Burger King and asked for a Big Mac. When they told her they didn't have any she said christmas was cancelled.

I watched Billy 2 just a few minutes ago. He kicked ass on that one.

I like how Billy acts all wimpy and unsure of himself, but then there are moments when he acts like a smartass that make his videos much more entertaining.

Have you watched the Navgtr review of Tomb Raider 2? Laughing

Zach, there's a new retsupurae video up! It's pretty good, I thought.

By the way, do you care if I post updates like this in this thread, or would making another thread be okay?
