Seconding Battle for Bikini Bottom, it's a pretty janky game but overall still a good time. Also it's likely to get rereleased in the near future.

CrossCode comes out on Sept 20th. It's been in early access for a while and the reviews have been fantastic.

I don't really follow this thread so who knows if this has been suggested 1000 times before but this Vip4 redo is making me wonder if an ASMT redo would ever be on the table?
I figure at this point it's been over 8 years and everyone's forgotten a lot of content of that game, I'd love to see a modern run of it. I recall savestates being used at the end of the original playthrough, I'm not really sure if the endgame of that is feasible without (I remember there being some unforgivably long levels capped with difficult boss fights near the end)

I think that could be fun!

I think there is an extra checkpoint or two near the end of the game in the latest revision anyway, so it's more feasible than it was.

Oh geez, I can't believe it's been 8 years :(

I really enjoyed the first half of this VIP 4 series, but the single-level videos feel less good. Honestly, I'm not too keen on raocow getting into the habit of replaying games because of the sheer size of the coming up next list. (Donkey Kong 64 is such a long way off :< )

I wouldn't mind seeing an ASMT2 replay, though. Mostly because raocow played an unfinished version and now it's done (correct me if I'm wrong, please!)

A2MT is very much playable and "done", if you will, but there are still so many random niggling flaws with lots of the levels that I don't think the subsequent LP experience would be all that much better than the zombie version had been. I still think there is a genuinely decent game in A2MT, just with a few minor level design tweaks that haven't been implemented.

I'm also on the side of 'new stuff' (*cough* even though I dream of an Ava playthrough of Soldexus).

And while this should really go in the other topic, I think the Top 10 in Patreon polls should be cut down to Top 5, since 10 surprisingly take a very long time to go through (and kill hype for a game by the end). Especially with raocow inserting whatever he feels like in between.

wouldn't be nearly as bad if people didn't keep requesting monoliths like rabi-ribi and hollow knight

i don't know how rabi-ribi is a monolith when distorted travesty 3 exists :P

what i'm -really- concerned about is that la-mulana playthrough on the horizon though :lol: the next three games after hollow knight are all not especially big (necrosphere will be like, 10 episodes or so max imo) but la-mulana done raocow-style is either gonna be a half-year endeavor or get canned partway through

To be fair, that's a new character (even with old levels) rather than being a replay of the same game with the same mode.

If it's any consolation, there's someone that did a playthrough the full game which includes Ava mode.

And I'm personally skeptical about an ASMT playthrough. At least with A2MT, raocow has expressed some interest in revisiting it as a packaged hack with some closure to loose ends (to clarify things for Petzi, it's "wrapped up" to make it look not incomplete, but I think it's still not finished relative to its original objectives before the project was cancelled). But I don't see much value in replaying ASMT when people that want to see it or forgot its contents can just go see the old let's play. Many people that contributed to it aren't around in talkhaus anymore, so there's also diminished value of connect with the present community. Don't forget that it's a very much aged hack

Hollow Knight is incredibly good and as someone who has been watching raocow for like, almost a decade, I don't think I'm missing the point to like watching him play it

I mean, the rules of the system are that people that pay get to vote for whatever they want (presumably within reason), and whatever happens happens. There's not much point in getting upset about it.

EDIT: I mean that in the sense of getting upset by the game lineup. The system itself may be worth discussion.

No, but I do think you missed the point of my post.

I'd explain better but it was just supposed to be an idle comment and now everybody wants to hot take me about how upset I am so whatever... I didn't mean to bother anyone

@Leet: I get that you want to see more niche fanwork games and lesser known projects, but... there are factors that put a limit to that. raocow made this his job now, so it may not be sustainable without enough mix of games and playthroughs that attract more attention and more liking by viewers. And deliberately looking for games that are more obscure (that would make good let's plays) isn't always easy, and the results don't always work out very well. Games that have a wider recognition/good reception are more reliable beforehand.

There are still upcoming LPs of fangames and whatnot (mainly from A-side). And there are indie and small-team projects that just happened to become better known, like Rosenkreuzstilette. Nothing wrong with that.

more than anything, la-mulana punishes you for not paying attention

Thanks. Yeah, it's definitely not something I'd super excited about, since the LP would be mostly the same.

I definitely agree, it would be cool to see raocow play more mainstream games once in a while, and it would attract more viewers. I'd even like to watch him streaming, as long as it wasn't a game where he has to replay the same part over and over (again, it could be profitable). But being true to himself is more important, of course.

I don't agree at all. The point of the thread is to suggest games he may not otherwise consider. Popularity of said game is completely irrelevant to that.

Though this is also raocow so things most people consider difficult, like the mantras puzzle, he may just blunder his way through without ever even realizing what he's doing. I can see him getting stuck on some of the less obscure puzzles though, lol.
