Honestly, from what I remember of the stream Matt did, it starts picking up soon after they stopped, but it focuses more on weird shit than straight up horror.

I don't really pay attention to if an LP is particularly popular, but it's a shame if people are sleeping on Policenauts. I'm having a blast watching it and it's weird sci-fi insanity.

Yeah, so far I think Little Nightmares is my number one pick, while Detention is my number two.

I'm biased against first person horror games...

I like the really well made first person horror stuff Amnesia, Outlast etc, but there's a ton of really amateur first person stuff just because newer engines have lowered the bar for making those, in that you can basically make a generic haunted house environment with default assets and adjusting some lighting sliders.

I really enjoyed Detention, myself. It had a pretty good atmosphere, which is a bit surprising what with it being another set in an eldritch school setting.

It certainly gets much more interesting and disturbing as the game goes along.

They come into this plane of reality- without any documentation, without passing through the proper channels- and immediately get the Cosmic Welfare and the free rides through Eldritch School. Im a hardworking, taxpaying American, and i can't even comprehend the true nature of the campus! That just ain't right.

I was leaning WAY back during part 2 of Detention. What a fucking cool ass horrific game @_@ Combining Chinese horror with old school communist fears lol.

But I think the best thing about this game is that they some how achieved the perfect puzzle difficulty for the Best Friends!

Full LP for this AND Little Nightmares please!

It helps alot being set in an old ass Chinese school.

Which have a slight different feel from an American or Japanese school.

Welp, I was hoping to listen to Matt's Deadly Premonition Stream but he set an annoying notification sound when people donate that drove me crazy in less than 5 minutes. I don't understand why streamers do that, and how viewers can tolerate it.

This is what made me tap out when he streamed White Day a while back. I think watching streams might just not be for me. Seems annoying af.

They already confirmed the EW2 LP.
It'll probably replace Policenauts, which seems to be wrapping up pretty soon...
Maybe by next week?

Actually, now that I think about it, it'll probably be a Matt+Pat LP, and Pat's going to Japan in a couple days.
Unless they've already recorded some as part of the Shitstorm or something you might have to wait 'til around the end of the month...

Different strokes for different folks, I guess, I found the near constantly repeating first couple of bars of 'Life is Beautiful' punctuated by the occasional sound of a car crash to be steadily more funny as it went on, especially when it got to the point that it was wearing thin with Matt/Tina.

Streaming culture is built upon a kind of twisted relationship between the streamer and the audience. The streamer pretends to have a relationship with the chat and goes to annoying lengths to visually/audibly acknowledge donations to encourage more people to give them money. If you think that sounds gross, you're absolutely right.

Night Trap is interesting because of the absurd moral panic it caused for something so tame but as a game it is horrendously bad

Probably be where it starts as the end of the Shitstorm and continues after. So they'd have a pretty good buffer of completed episodes recorded by then.

Wow, that finale was pretty satisfying, and yet pretty WTF.

That said, I kinda wish the epilogue was a few days after the whole "Jonathan takes down the bad guys" thing, just so it'd feel a little less rushed.

Policenauts was a hell of an LP. I always wanted to play the game but never gotten around to it for whatever reason(thankfully got to play Snatcher, though). I was excited for there being an LP and it didn't disappoint.

I feel like this year has been pretty strong for the best friends overall. At least so far.

There' some great stuff I wouldn't mind seeing them encounter.

After taking maybe a year hiatus on them they got me back again this year. I'm just one little person, but I was into them for a few years, got bored, but there was a good LP or two that brought me back both into the LPs and the podcast.

Definitely think it was a strong year for them.
