the end of a-side

Postby raocow » 2 months ago

man that sounds pretty theatrical with a title like that
anyway in 'coming up next' I've been talking about that for a bit, but I figure more people might want to know this that don't read 'coming up next' so I'm going to be copy and pasting what I wrote there verbatim. I'll just add here that c-side would remain c-side, all the sonics until the end of time

-- original message below --

I don't know where to put this so I guess this will do

This is just a head's up that after the current lists are done, I will probably retire the notion of an 'a-side'. There still would be videos in the morning and in the evening, at the same time, but the distinction between a and b has become so muddled that I think it's gotten useless. The a-side made sense when there was a lot of romhacks and smbx episodes that peeps where excited about but I feel like that time is over, and I'm growing more and more open at playing a variety of things.

Naturally, whenever a big romhack or episode or whatever, I would definitely make it a priority to play it. But in between, rather than struggling to find stuff to play, I think I would rather just play things that seem interesting, you know?

The ultimate showcase of how silly this is, like, twice now I've played mario 64 hacks, right? These games have nothing to do with traditional mario 2d games, they are set-up differently, the goals are often extremely different, they are completely different games, but I'd play them in the morning because Mario's face is in there. Meanwhile, in the future I'll be playing a Hat in Time but this time on the b-side because instead of mario it's a girl. And Rayman Origin was some 2D gameplay, and it also had to live it up in B. It's just weird, right?

Anyway. I think this should be fine. I'm aware some of you don't care at all about this side and that side, but I know some people do, and I guess for those who do advance warning is good.

Though like I said I'll still be finishing the current list in it's entirely before the chaos begins.

Because man, *man* it's funny thinking that DK64 is going to be the last A game. The least 'a' game ever.

The end of an era. But I totally get your reasoning. And don't think of it as the "end of A-side", think of it as... merging two concepts that weren't ultimately all that different to begin with. :P

It's the End of dAys!!

I'm glad that raocow is now open to an assortment of games and mergind both A and B as one. So that not just raocow would have more time to rest but he can also play more kinds of games (limited to what he likes to play or pateron votes). Just one less video per day tho.

I'm not sure it was ever answered anywhere, but once both lists are finished, are you planning on continuing to split your list of games, or make it one large list? Will it be "here's the games that will appear in the morning and here's the games that will appear in the evening" or is it "here's the entire list of games, when once is finished I go to the next one in this list regardless of timeslot"?

I know you said "two slots", but I just wanted clarification

I think it's going to be one list, so if one game ends up being very long you don't get a bunch of game stuck behind it

@raocow: so like when an LP reached like 70-100 episodes and it's considered to be a long LP, you'll pause for that game and play the next?

what no

What I mean is that, if there were still two distinct list, if one games go long it clogs up one list but the other list continues fine. By having one single row that splits, if one game goes long the 'head' can still let things through normally

I do wonder if there was ever a significant break in the Mario side. Going by rough memory, I think a lot of times in the pre-Patreon days (that's up to before 2015), when a second side alternated between on and off, when there was a non-Mario game it was concurrent with a Mario game.

Will you still be recording the morning/evening games in a different order than you upload them? Do you still do that now? I remember that being the reason for a few confused understandings of when and how you react to comments.

So with there being no more A or B sides, I guess that means the record's stopped playing.

I thought the a-side just meant it had something to do with Mario; never really thought it was about hacks or 2D Mario in particular

So if I'm understanding right, "Oh, VIP 6 is out, but I'm still playing Donkey Kong 64", we'd theoretically get evening VIP 6 instead of "this happens ONLY in the morning when this game is done"?

I am probably WAY over complicating a simple concept but when don't I haha
