Sometimes Let’s Plays go badly. Your PC dies, your console dies, your saves are lost, your footage didn’t record, your audio is all garbled or your videos got content ID’d by some random account and now you’re without a channel.
As a sort of vent and to also give newcomers an idea of how things can go horribly wrong outside of your control, let’s share some horror stories.
My biggest catastrophe was a Dark Souls LP. It was bad enough that we lost 5 hours worth of audio (we were gonna do post commentary over the footage to fix that), but we were also playing when the game transitioned from GFWL to Steamworks. It introduced some new bugs, including this elevator which destroyed all desire for us to play the game further.
