AndyAce83´s Let´s Play – Episode 06: BioShock 2 Multiplayer – “I Have No Dime For You”

21 Jul

Copyright… Sometimes it seems copy-wrong. I made a video featuring Bing Crosby singing a song from about 1931 called “Brother, can you spare a dime?“. Of course some people got the rights to that song soo… That means I have none. I got this message:

Press the image to get it larger.

Press the image to get it larger.

I disputed on fair use since I: 1) Did not use the entire song, 2) The song is old, 3) The song is a reference to the game, 4) its non commercial.

If you can watch this video then it worked. If not… Some guys just “owns the rights” to a song, written 82 years ago and song by a guy who died 36 years ago.


—————————————–

Now I am not a socialist so I am all for copyright! People should be able to own their own work, but there has to be reasonable limits. Using a song that is 82 years old, must be okay. Especially when it isnt being used in its entirety and the guy who sang it is long dead. The only people who make money of this is guys who buy and re-buy copyrights. In other words A$$HOLES! Copyright, yes. Copywrong, NO!

I also love the irony of the theme of the song and how some people will not “spare me a dime“.

AndyAce83´s Let´s Play – Episode 02: Let´s Try RE6 Mercenaries (Local Co-Op)

20 Jul

Sooo…. I have made another Let´s play. In fact many. This one is the second Resident Evil 6 gameplay and it´s about the mini-game called Mercenaries. Mercenaries was first introduced in Resident Evil 3 if I remember correctly as a mini-game that would be opened by finishing the main game. It looked a bit different then and was more about surviving towards a goal rather than killing as many enemies as possible at with time limits.

Mercenary as is on Resident Evil 6, but also 5, and started on Resident Evil 4. Unlike 4 and 5 you dont have to “open” Mercenaries by finishing the campaign RE6. Only certain maps are unlocked by campaign gaming.

I think we had some fun. It is an exciting game with fewer frustrations than Resident Evil 6´s Survivor or Resident Evil 5´s Versus as it is a co-op game.

I will probably make a let´s play about RE5´s Survivor where I will talk about the pros and cons of the game. We´ll see.

AndyAce83´s Let´s Play – Episode 01: Let´s Try RE6 Survivor

18 Jul

Soo… I have a youtube account. Sometimes I make videos. One of the most simple types of videos, other than video rants with a webcam, are the Let´s Plays. Let´s Plays is when nerds start capturing video of gameplay and distributed it on youtube and other videosites on the interweb and claim that they somehow made those videos themselves when all they did was press record. Sometimes they comment either on topic or nonsensical, although some don´t say much at all. The last one is my favorite, but the ones talking nonsensical is the most common.

I saw some of those and thought “Hey, I can make some of those. I even have an annoying accent like that gay swede* who so many find fascinating.” So I did and I was right. It really is easy. If only I could afford a tool that could record the images directly too.

So here is the first Let´s Play i made. Its of a hated game called Resident Evil 6. A game I think too many are too hard on. The multiplayer versus is not that great, but then again few games are. But when it comes to co-op its rocking and great. I do miss the great melons of Sheva in RE5 though.
