    Holy shit I’m stoked. This is a game I have never played but have been told to death that I would love it. Guess I’ll just watch this LP instead 😉

  • A couple of updates:
    1) First, holy crap the SWITCH. I’ve haven’t been this excited for a console since the PS2. How are other people feeling about Nintendo’s presentation?
    2) Podcast didn’t happen last week as it was a busy week for both me and Max. It WILL happen this week so avid podcast fans need only wait for the release of this week’s…[Read more]

    • Thanks for the update Orca! I’ve been meaning to post something about it, but the time has gotten away from me.

    • I never felt so hype for a Nintendo console since the Nintendo Gamecube. Also SKYRIM ON THE GO! I am not the biggest fan of Skyrim but I guess this gives me an excuse to start playing it now (mind you I like Fallout better Skyrim). Plus the amount of 3rd party support Nintendo revealed especially Square Enix and Atlus. Now I sound like the biggest…[Read more]

    • I’m just as excited for it as the rest of you. It looks really interesting. While watching the trailer I was shouting “what!” in surprise every time I noticed something about how the console could SWITCH it’s controller/controllers around. I actually watched Arlo’s reaction expecting tons of “what’s” but he had a surprisingly tame reaction.

    Hey folks, I’m typing this up super late but I wanted to ask this question, for a friend of course.
    I’ve been using twitch now to stream for about a month and a half or so and have been having a blast trying different set-ups, scene styles, etc. Twitch is, objectively, where it’s at for streaming but I’m wondering how people are using Youtube…[Read more]

    • I don’t have a lot of streaming experience, but I do have a lot of stream viewing experience. What I can tell ‘your friend’ is these things:

      Upsides for using Twitch:

      – Twitch has been in the streaming game for longer, so has a way bigger stream viewing community.

      – For that same reason the way Twitch works makes it a lot more customisable for…[Read more]

      • @maxmarksjr How do I properly format my text here? I feel like it’s really weird to read. (Tests: *ITALIC* **BOLD** ^SUPERSCRIPT )
        Hmm it doesn’t use Markdown.

    Put it up there! You have until 5 pm ish on Wednesday

    • It was a Mary Poppins joke.
      The joke is that I didn’t post a video.

      Anyway, I have no idea what I would post, I’m not sure if anything I’ve uploaded has been particularly funny.

    Hey folks! Long time no post from me. Been super busy with all of life’s little trappings BUT I wanted to a pose a little some-something for you all. As many of you are aware, I co-host the WPG podcast, the OFFICIAL podcast of GPG and its affiliates (Ubisoft give me $ plz). One of my favorite things to do in the week is find a good video or two…[Read more]

    • Analytics tell me this is supposed to be a good video. Is it a funny one? I don’t know, it’s a clustertruck video and I tend to laugh a lot of the time during those, does that make it funny?

      • I actually have ideas to make a video called “No Man’s Pie” (what an original name), which might be more suited for this request. If I actually make it by then I’ll drop a link.

    • Before I post a video let me say just one thing!…

      I never prepare anything. *Flies off into the sunset*

    Those are the best hickups. Nothing like going in semi-blind and having some background. Gives a lot of material to talk about, actually.

    Wrote it myself. Took longer to compress the thing than to actually write it. It’s the single worst fugue subject I’ve ever written.

    Hello everyone! Really super proud to announce the start of a new annual series called The Orca Scares where I try my best to shit myself while playing horror games. I’m a few sessions in and I’m already down two pairs of cargo shorts.

    Here’s the trailer if you want to get psyched.

    Good on ya, man! That’s how I got my start with music was jamming and doing band type stuff with my buddies as far back as middle school doing Dead Kennedy’s covers for absolutely no one. It was a hoot.
    FL studio is a bear to learn, but it’s one of the best for a reason. I’ve been rocking LMMS because it’s free, highly customizable, and I roughly…[Read more]

    Hey folks! Glad to have you on this site. WELCOME.

    I haven’t had a chance to check out any videos yet, but I’ll be sure to do. Max is the head honcho around here and he and I do a weekly podcast where we try and highlight some folks from the community. Be sure to check that out. Also, feel free to post any videos up here that you’d like to have…[Read more]

    This awesome! Really glad to see you taking on the wonderful world of covering and arranging. Really nice samples there. I have very limited time with FL studio but I was always really impressed by the stock samples they provided, it’s just generally decent sounding orchestral stuff.
    As far as what YOU actually put into there – it’s all really…[Read more]

    • I took me a while to think of a comment cause of how much I have to break it down haha. I am no stranger to covering and arranging, it just not known in the internet only between school mates and band sessions back in high school. A friend of mine introduced to me to FL Studio in my junior year of college since he run the music studio at school.…[Read more]

    That about describes our relationship, yeah.

  • Orca Theory posted a new activity comment 2 years ago

    These are honestly my favorite types of LP’s. The commentary is really the highlight and the gameplay is just an enhancement of that commentary.

    • I try to treat my commentaries like the podcast: have some topics going in, but then also let the commentary flow naturally. I use the game as the other “person” in the podcast.

      What I’m trying to say is that your just another video game to me.

  • Orca Theory posted a new activity comment 2 years ago

    That’s more or less the idea. The activity is kind of dated now, but when I was growing up in the late NES era me and my friends would all get different games for christmas, birthdays, etc. etc. and then trade and swap on the playground so that we can play every game. We’d go over each others’ houses and play games together on the couch and laugh…[Read more]

    That must be a helluva headset. Thing sounds mint!

  • Orca Theory posted a new activity comment 2 years ago

    Peaking is a pretty easy fix depending on your mic. Just curious – what are you using?

  • Orca Theory posted a new activity comment 2 years ago

    Really nice video. It’s a good length too, there’s a lot going on and you play through it without a ton of pauses or breaks in the overall action. Audio level for your mic is absolutely fine, though I thought I detected some peaking in some spots – but that might just be a compression thing so be careful of that. If anything, turn the game audio…[Read more]

    • Dean replied 2 years ago

      Thanks for the feedback, I’ll work on the background volume. I think I can solve the peaking issues by dropping the volume I record at a bit.
      Thanks again. 🙂

    • Dean replied 2 years ago

      The chain got too big, it wouldn’t let me reply to last comment.
      Anyway, yeah, it’s a great headset in terms of the mic. It’s just very fragile and I can only buy replacements in December.

    Hey folks, heads up! If you have uPlay for some weird god damn reason they have been giving away a free game each month. This month they’re giving away the Crew. Let’s get on it!
