Lounge L33ts Episode 2: The Ski Chalet Part 1

http://blip.tv/LoungeL33ts/lounge-l33ts-episode-2-the-ski-chalet-part-1-6387871

I think we spend more time reminiscing about City of Heroes/Villains, than we do berating NC Soft for…well…being assholes and shutting down the game in late November. I’m sorry if you’re tired of hearing the CoH community voice their disapproval over the game’s closure. I disagree with Ran-san (aka “Nomiru” in previous posts), I know the game wouldn’t have been around forever. Eventually everything ends. This was not the way to end it though, and NC Soft has only themselves to blame for the bad PR. However, even after all that, I’m still going to play Guild Wars 2. I figure I paid for it, there’s no subscription, and I’m pretty sure I can enjoy the game without paying into the cash shop, so why not? I’ve only managed to log about 2 hours of gameplay, but it was fun enough to make me want to return.
This episode, I also introduce Eric “Setzer” Craig, the current Head of Registration for Geek.Kon 2013 as one of our guests. He’s been playing CoH for quite a while and I hope I can have on in future episodes to discuss other MMO’s.
We wind up touching on a wide variety of topics this episode including Tabula Rasa, Korean Grinders, esports, The Secret World and other Funcom games, etc. As always, polite, constructive criticism is welcome, as this show is still very much a work in progress.

Lounge L33ts Episode 1: The Grind (pilot)

http://blip.tv/romeomoon/lounge-l33ts-6372732

Well, here we go! The very first episode of Lounge L33ts. There was a bit of trouble with recording for this episode. Like I said in the inroduction, this was an episode of firsts. If FRAPS shows numbers in a magenta/pinkish-puple hue, it may not be recording properly. When we finished, I opened the file to find that only the last three minutes had been recorded. Then Matt let me know FRAPS should be loaded (although not necessarily recording) before the game is loaded. In order to get the backup footage to me through the dropbox folder (restricted to 2GB in the free version), Matt converted the file to an flv file. Unfortunately, Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD doesn’t read flv’s and I had to use Total Video Converter to convert the file into a wmv, a file type I knew the editing software would recognize. After editing, it was rendered into one of the “Internet HD” file types offered and sent through Total Video Converter to become an flv file again. At 1.9 GB, it was too big to post on Bliptv. So I went back into Sony Vegas and rendered the edit into an “Internet SD” file, which was small not to have to be converted in TVC. It was a bit of work, and hopefully the next episode will go more smoothly. Anyway, in this episode Matt Winchell, Ran-san, and I meet up in Anarchy Online’s The Grind where we discuss how we all got caught up in MMO’s, the news on Game Director Fia “Lindelu” Tjernberg’s departure, and the prospects on the future of the game:
