Late to the Game - Page 10 by Gato88 Late to the Game - Page 10 by Gato88
The final page of Kirsten's Let's Play adventure! I hope you all enjoyed this weird little romp through contemporary entertainment - it was a lot of fun to draw and write!

I think I might take a week or two off from posting comics as I prepare the next big thing (like drawing cover art)... But it's gonna be a doozy! 

Thank you and good night.

You mean the facecam size in proportion to the video game footage?

Uh, exactly.  

I prefer my Let's Plays with NO face-cam, actually.   I barely concentrate on the videos as is.  I don't need the added stress of watching TWO video feeds simultaneously.

There's absolutely no reason to have a face-cam anyway since it adds nothing. The stupidest gimmick I saw was this one guy who not only had a face-cam, but his gimmick was to keep a plush mascot in view that "speaks" to him via annotations and intrusive audio clips added in post as if it was a co-commentator. I find it hilarious that "let's play" is such a bloated market that someone in a desperate effort to stand out couldn't recognize that this was an utterly moronic idea.

I watch Game Grumps.  Only Game Grumps.  Because it's two guys, both of whom I like, who are funny, and the primary attraction is the banter between them.  I sit drawing or coloring or something and it's something that I can have running in the background which doesn't demand too much attention.  I also don't get much of a chance to play games, because I'm too busy drawing, but I can WATCH games.  

But I find SO many of the Let's Play channels thoroughly obnoxious and baffling.  Haven't seen the plush mascot thing yet, but ... wouldn't surprise me.

I do think there are good Let's Plays out there ("The Terrible Secret of Animal Crossing" being one that not only elevates the format, but chooses a clever way of showcasing what should be a boring game to show people).

My only gripes with Game Grumps is that it keeps Arin from animating. I guess there's no money in that though, thanks to YouTube's algorithms.

No money in animating.  At all.  I mean, there are those troupers that keep going for the love of it, but that early Youtube boom of young independent animators is dead and gone, sadly.

Hasn't he heard the saying "no such thing as bad publicity?"

It's even more true now that the internet allows people's complaints to reach far and wide and send others looking for the source material.

Perhaps, but people involved in internet scandals usually lose a lot of watchers/ad revenue, like with the whole CS:GO Lotto fiasco (but deservedly so). But yeah, bad publicity can be beneficial as well!
