Co-Op Let's Play Projects

I've been wanting to do some co-op Let's Plays with the bf for some time now, and we finally got around to it. The only real challenge was to figure out how to get both of our audios working in one video. The way we solved it was to buy a table-top microphone which is a simple solution and unfortunately that means that the voice audio isn't as clear as it could be (but hopefully still good enough). If anyone has a good suggestion for another way to go about it I'd be very happy to hear some tips!

We started out with a classic - Streets of Rage - which I've never played. This becomes evident as I suck pretty hard, but maybe there is some comedical (tragical) value in watching that. My hopes is to go on to playing many other beat em ups, the only thing is we have to adapt our recording schedule to whenever Mini-me is safely asleep. We've been half way through a recording and have him scream right in it (he just likes making himself noticed every now and then), making us start over. I guess it's an option to just keep the baby shouts in there for bonus value, but we've opted out of that for now.

My real hopes are to make some Let's Plays on my own eventually, I just haven't figured out what kind of game to Let's Play yet. Most of the games I play are the kind of "endless" games that I at least wouldn't enjoy watching Let's Plays of, like Skyrim or MtG or otherwise games I don't think are suitable for Let's Plays (and this is entirely my own opinion) like RPGs.

At the moment they're probably more fun to make than they are to watch, as we try to figure out a good way of creating them. If you want a shot at seeing me playing badly, here you go. Hope you enjoy!

    Looks like you're having a blast. I used to like playing Golden Axe with my kid like that (though I suck pretty bad also). Hope you two and the little one are doing well. Still hoping to see an update about the mini some time. Best wishes and a merry Christmas to you and your family as well.

  2. Oh I'd love to do Let's Plays with my son, but that's way off in the future! I am really looking forward to playing games with him general though, so that is going to be a lot of fun when we get there. I'm already having fun just playing peek-a-boo with him at the moment.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours as well!
