Possible Youtube playthrough

Hey guys, it's FlamingGnats. Thanks to Steel_Messiah's generosity I have a copy of 2nd OGs headed my way in a week or so. I'd like to do a playthrough in the same vein as my others, but was looking for some input from you guys. Keep in mind I don't have access to any HD recording hardware, so I won't be able to upload in HD at least until my financial situation changes.

So, any thoughts on routes? Characters you want to see used? Changes from the usual of my playthroughs?

Are you planning on doing a translation with it? Because frankly that's the only way I can imagine you'd get the general people here to care about watching a SRW playthrough.

I've never done a translation before and I've had reasonable success attracting viewers.

lol, what happened to your Z2 playthrough? You just stopped halfway near the end.

My PC's motherboard died and a lot of my other hardware was incompatible with the new one. I ended up losing my hard drive alonjg with several of my Z2 videos. That along with a lot of moving around in real life and some bad personal times led me to stopping.

Since Akurasu often doesn't have an entirely in-depth wiki, it would be really nice if you would showcase various screens of data during your videos. That is, if I can't happen to remember what Aya's Spirit set is, I can't really go and look that information up anywhere without playing up to the point that she has all 6 myself to see what they are. (Of course, this is based on the fact that Akurasu doesn't have this information up yet and, based on what little of it there is for OGs, I'm honestly not expecting it to be up any time soon.) This also applies to things like initial unit specs (including weapon loadouts), pilot skills, etc. (Sure, some text walkthroughs on here will have that information, but sometimes it's a toss-up as to whether they actually do or not.)

In some playthrough videos I've watched (not necessarily yours though, but in general), the player just speeds through everything as if what they're doing is a chore and doesn't show useful information that some people may actively want to know simply because they want to plow through all of the content as fast as possible.

Anyway, just some thoughts, if you're interested.

JinKazuki has already started off a playthrough (with someone else providing translations) following Masaki's route at the following:

Maybe FlamingGnats could get in contact with said translator and go through Lune/Ryuune's route for his own LP?

Translators are more than welcome to work on any videos I've uploaded. I've covered most of the series save the 360, Wii and GC titles.
