- I went into Demon's Souls as I did any other game when possible - without any prior knowledge. Between the input latency, shunning the (unknowingly horribly overpowered) lockon system, and choosing what could be construed as a very difficult class to start with, my experience with this game was nothing short of horrible. Innumerable bugs, terrible balancing, and inconsistent play added to an already overburdened mind.
- With the difficulty I've had in getting megui to consistently give videos their correct aspect ratios, some of these videos do not default to the proper (16:9) aspect ratio. You'll want to make sure your player is set to compensate for this.
- Sometimes the video freezes for a few periods when I alt tab out of Virtualdub. The video will resume (and still be in sync) when I tab back in, so this is not a recording or encoding bug. What would be a bug (with mkvmerge to blame) is if the entire video freezes permanently at the same point. Upon which case, use MPC. In any other instances it freezes, it's due to the game's insane performance problems.
I managed what could be considered amongst the hardest possible ways to go through this game, without knowing it until I was finished. Please watch the entire LP and the review before making any judgement/comment on anything I do or say during play.

Character creation, sound tests, and the ominous acknowledgement of an entirely unfamiliar control scheme hints at anguish to come.

As it turns out, Starcraft 2's campaign wasn't the only LP I would miss horribly obvious, directly in my face assets in. Laugh while you can, Potter.

Sometime around this point I acknowledged I may have bitten off more than I could swallow. It's a good thing I have no gag reflex anymore.

Will Professor Snape rise to the call of America, and save the American Dream? Or will he fall into shadow, cast into the barren wasteland of Canada, to be lost forever?

These are phase 2 verification encodes and are very slightly higher quality/larger filesize since I lost all of my specific settings for megui.

Actually, the Crossbowmen DO reload, it's just I'm used to crossbows needing actual reload animations. ah my shoulder

This is one of the most painful and degrading videos I have ever produced. I suffer immensely throughout and watching it was like experiencing a traumatic flashback of when I was beaten up by overweight clowns in the girl's room back in the 70's.

In all those times I didn't want to shift to Pure Black I was already in Pure Black.
I tried to resist my urge to go on an endless rant about laziness.
