after the debacle last night with dux, i lost all confidence in my ability to, well, talk. i was just so bland and i want to cry now. what i propose is not exactly a "dual comm" per se. it may even surpass dual comms in "kick-assitry" and still involves multiple ppl (the more, the merrier!).

what i would like to do (actually, doing already) is make a scripted commentary, not (neccessarily) based on live gameplay. currently i am doing a help vid on "how to improve KD/gameplay". i will write out a few pages of script, then record over a game connected to that theme. Next, one of u guys will either read the script and/or watch my vid, and make a response to it (contradictions, agreements, new variation) or offer completely new advice or a whole different approach based on the topic. This way, we could each have our "own take" of things, while still remaining interconnected on a central theme and build up a pool of information. part of a series, which may make it more interesting since its as if the story continues, but with a different author. (and we are not stumbling and botching the comm since we Know what we want to say.)

themes could be:
general tips for improving
fav weapons, perks, add-ons (stats, gun history (homework!), adv/disadv, some examples tied into gameplay)
fav position on maps, fav defensive spot, fav tricks (could be camping vid.)
style of gameplay, reasoning (possibly shaped by your gaming history)
fav gamemode, breakdown of rules (for non gamers), how to Pwn it, hints
why you love the game (shotties, longshots, knifing, multi-kills, etc.)
reminiscing on days past (RFom/COD4/whatever) or an event involving Squirrels

another reason this is a fucking fun idea is because, say for example a "fav defensive spot" vid, chubakka could say "i like holding down the air hanger on Crash" which would force me (or red) to record a game holding that position. then he could respond to the gameplay and say "i would have done it this way because..." or "i didnt even think of that, it really works." etc. but all the while, its his comm so he can include/dismiss any of the vid footage as he pleases.

same could apply for fav weapon, perks, style of gameplay, etc. the commentator would essentially be pre-picking what they wanted to talk about (according to the theme), and even if they cant physically record it, they can get red/me to act it out on their behalf. i think thats cool. this would allow you guys to get as close to recording your own gameplay (tell us specifically what u want us to do/play) and u gain your own commentary experience (should u ever want to get a recorder). good deal, no?

whos down for this, fuckers?

I hope whatever it is you try that it works out in a satisfying way... But to be honest, as Guzman said in another thread I really don't think your commentaries are that bad -not bad at all actually.

It's not all that bad to be on the serious side or whatever. Besides, I think a player's personality comes out in the way they play, and a player's own commentary should in effect, naturally match their own gameplay.

It might be easier if you are not so critical of yourself and just do a bunch - maybe then you'll kinda find your stride and tempo with commentaries? I don't think I'd try to be someone else or put on some kind of 'commentary persona' if I started doing them myself, I'd probably just go with how I felt at the time and see what came out.

Sorry, I know no one asked for it,but there's my two bucks worth...

Sound advice, IMO.

Either way, I'm at your disposal, Kuzu. (^_-)b

about that highrise domination where all 4 of us did well, do u guys wanna go crazy and do a quad comm? technically speaking, it may not be *that* hard. since i could show dux my screen via skype. and red/ban can meet in person. then we just need to hook up at the same time. i basically dont even need to talk, lol.

fyi, i know u know this, but i would like to post up more vids, i just cant yet. it really takes me a full day to get just 1 vid up. i think its more important for me to record as many good games now, since i may not be able to play pretty soon. if i cant play, i may still be able to edit/post up these 'older' games. that is what im thinking.

btw, every1.
thx for the encouragement and all, especially ban, and guz. i dont want to give up, but i do want to try diff things.

as u may have noticed about me, when i get interested in something (games, controller, stats, making vids) i go all out. that is, until i find the "next thing" that i focus all my energy on. its disappointing for me not being able to make great vids, or at least up to par with my own (high?) standards. anyways, its fun for me getting past challenges, and i hope u guys can put up with my constant ...BS!

1. if anyone wants to do their own commentary with random Kuzu footage, i would love for u to do so.
2. if anyone wants to do their own commentary with premeditated Kuzu footage (tell me how i should play), holla at me.
3. if anyone wants to do a dual comm with pre-planned commentary, lets come up with a theme and ill write it out.
4. if not interested in the quad comm i mentioned above, i think ill do a "squirrel history/tribute" commentary
