As I go into my fifth week of college, Spring Break approaches in about a month. Therefore, I’m finally sharing my plans of the first video “Let’s Play” of The iDOLM@STER 2.
Of course, there are reasons why I held this off for a bit. First and obvious was SOPA/PIPA, which got defeated. If those legislations were to pass, it would have been illegal for me to record footage, put commentary on it and upload it even though it’s legal under fair use. Second, I want to become confident enough and get the “true ending,” which I did in my last play through back in the second week of January. Therefore, I feel ready to start making the recordings when the time comes and spend my entire weekend recording until I finish my produce.
So, how will this work? I already have a standard definition capture card, a good video editing program and the game. I still need to get a S-Video cable for the Playstation 3 to improve the picture quality. Once I get that, I will do a full recording with my commentary when I go on break. During the gameplay, I will explain how the game works in the first 10 weeks and do the vending machine tutorial. However, I won’t be able to translate any of the dialogs since I still haven’t got that far in my Japanese self-study. Even so, I won’t skip through it so you can read it on your own time. Once the recording gets done, I will release one episode each week in the “Idolmaster 2 Let’s Play” category, which will consist of 10 in-game weeks each episode.
Aside from that, this is what I have planned thus far for the play through in March:
Unit Name: 春女の子 – (Lit. Spring Girls)
Tentative Unit Members: Miki (Leader), Chihaya, Yukiho
Tentative Song List: (any song over 150 BPM), Relations,七彩ボタン,Do-Dai, (DLC Song? -自分Rest@rt or Change!!!!)
For now, if you have any suggestions or concerns, voice them in the comments and be sure to check it out once I’m ready to publish them! ¶
