Do you think your game is awesome?  Do other people think your game is awesome?  Do you think your game is just okay?  Do you want all your spelling errors pointed out in a public forum?

If the answer to any of these questions is "spaghetti," read on!  (Also read on in case of any other answer)

For several months I've been doing Let's Beat videos (a variant of Let's Play videos which I made up and is exactly the same) of a number of games, including several indie games.  For those of you unaware of what an LP (or LB) is, it's basically a video of some doofus playing a video game and making (hopefully) humorous and/or informative comments while playing.  I do practically all my videos "blind," meaning I haven't played the game at all before filming the video.

So, if you want to see someone play your game, say weird things about it, and maybe get a little insight into what people (read: one person) think when they play your game, I may be your man!  Both compliments and insults offered free of charge!

You can see a bunch of what's done so far over at http://www.youtube.com/paste42

Some of the games I've done are QWOP, Run Jesus Run, Super Press Space to Win Action RPG 2009, FISHBANE, Super Mario Crossover, Enough Plumbers, about 13.5 of the Action 52 OWNS games, Fault Line, Eversion, and many more!

Hear what people are saying about LBs of their games:
"paste Let's Beat-ed my game (an achievement in and of itself) and his beautiful voice made the game about eleven times better. also he does really good editing." -Droqen
"fuck yeah paste!" - Offal
"Hey! Thanks a lot for making the vid. it was halarious." -JaJistu
"That was funny. I enjoy watching your reactions to the game. Glad you like spread." -Jay Pavlina

So if such smashing people begrudgingly accept these videos, isn't it in your best interest to suggest your game?  Or don't.  I don't care.  I just like making videos and playing games.  Smiley

Note: Requests will be handled eventually.  There are always games being played, so please be patient ;]

Other Note: If your game is free, I will most likely provide a link to it in the description.  Please let me know if you don't want me to.

I'd love for you to try a game I recently finished. I think it's quite different from most of the games you've recorded LPs of so it might be interesting. It also doesn't take very long to beat sooooo... yeah. Here's a link if you want to try it out:

Okay, the first couple of requests have been fulfilled!

Here are Let's Beat Frog Hunt as well as Let's Beat AetherBeats.  Fun Fact: I don't actually beat these games because they're not the type of games one beats.

Sorano, I attempted to download your game but instead came face to face with a login screen to which I knew no way around!

More videos on their way!  Exclamation points!

paste, this is a fun idea... I just can't believe I watched 10 minutes of you playing Monster Bash... lol

If you feel like it, give my Gamma 4 entry "High High Rockets" a try... the game is only 5 minutes long, and I guarantee you will beat it.  Beer!

Another dude recently did some videos of my game Madhouse, but I'd love to see how you play it, too!

Which reminds me, Macarena of the Missing would be a good one to do. Cheeky little adventure game by Noyb, pretty funny.

Let's Beat Toys
Let's Beat High High Rockets

Apologies, my screen recorder/video card couldn't keep up with HHR very well, but I went ahead and threw it up onto the webs anyway.  Fullscreen is hard to record.  I'm surprised Toys worked, considering it was in Unity.  Now you know why I do so many low-res games!

@Brother Android: Sorry to crap on your childhood fave, but IMO it just didn't stand the test of time!

Haha, thanks for recording yourself playing Toys paste! It's really interesting seeing someone you don't know play and comment on your game. Gives you a lot better insight on it's shortcomings as well!

I decided to start Madhouse with the tutorial, and I'm fairly certain it will be episodic from here on out.

I didn't do too well with S.T.A.C.K.E.R. though.  I'd be up for giving it another shot though, if you like.  I think I may have figured out most of the gameplay now...

More Madhouse coming soon!

Thanks very much for going through that! It's extremely educational, and rather embarrassing, to see just what the game looks like from the outside.  Beer!  Tired
