    Nice try, troll, but what I'm saying is the truth. It's exactly what this kid is going to go out and do.

    he will be all like part way through "oh nose wait a second people i have no clue what im doing, time to get on gamefaqs"

    you could ring up nintendo and ask them for the hardware to output ds video, but when you tell them your playing pirated games and uploading vids on youtube they will just hunt you down and sue the shit out of you

    OKAY! Getting back on subject.
    The only ways I know to record video from a DS is either;
    1) Screen Capture from a DS Emulator
    2) Record from a Tripod positioned in front of your DS.

    Well there you go, hope it helps.

    Define "shit quality". Even if the video is good, the LP can still be incredibly shit. Take a look at some of the "gems" that have been posted recently on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/results?uploaded=d&...es=20%2C24%2C43

    And if you think that video quality is all that matters, I doubt yours will be much different.

    Edit: What is it with you Youtuber LPers and having to play a game the day it comes out, anyway? What's with the big rush to be the "first"? Wouldn't you feel better taking your time, knowing you'll be giving the game the respect it deserves? (Rhetorical question, we all know all you want are subscribers)

    Ah, Law is using that wonderful "I can judge even though I can't do" logic that George Carlin was so famous for. As if he were some authority on the matter. No, honestly, do you have any LP vids? No? So cut this out. Or is someone physically forcing you to watch every LP vid on Youtube?

    It wasn't charming when George Carlin bitched about what people did, it's not charming when you do it. Take your shit to CAG or Sega-16 if you're going to act that way.

    You don't need to be a "Master LPer" to realise the majority of the trash that comes from Youtube is utter garbage, simply watching good LPs is enough to make that decision. I have made LP videos in the past, but then I thought to myself "Wait, this is a terrible idea" and promptly deleted them, despite them (tech wise) being above average for the youtube standard. Then I found Retsuprae, the offical LParchives, then I decided to register an account at SA.

    In fact it's not something I "can't do", it's something I won't on sheer principle that I don't want to be grouped together with those people. Anybody can do it, but it's not always a good idea.

    Edit: Oh, and there's a difference between doing something and doing it proficiently. Anybody can sit down and record themselves playing a videogame and talking about it for the internet, but few of those people can do it well.

    I really don't like that "you can't do it, so you have no right to an opinion" logic. Rather, I agree with the over-used saying, "you don't need to bake a cake to know it tastes good".
    I'm not shutting anyone out because everyone has a right to an opinion/freedom of speech/all that crap(especially on the internet), and I kinda laughed at Law's response. But this is a terribly pointless argument.

    Also, if you want to make a decent-looking LP, you should just try out an emulator like No$gba if it works well enough. But yeah, you may as well learn the game before actually making one.

    Yeah, you're right.
    But I occasionally come across an argument every now and then(actually rather often), and if it's dumb and I'm in any mood to post, then I'll post with the false hope of it actually making a difference. :]
