When I type Xenonauts into youtube...

Recommended Posts

A few people on this forum know I love youtube, and spend probably too much time on it. So, for fun, I typed in xenonauts into the search bar, and I got back some interesting results. Of the 9 pages, there's a lot of lets' plays, ranging from v8 all the way to v12.1, so anyone wasn't here earlier and who wants to see the progression of the game can watch how it evolved. There's also quite a lot of "first looks" which is sort of LP, but more in depth than a Let's Play. The Let's Plays come from a varied bunch, I guess you all visit the forums regularly, I don't know who you are on the forums, but I did learn some things from watching them. (I watched a lot of Xenonaut Let's Plays). It wasn't all Let's Plays, though.

First of all, the interviews. There's totalbiscuits'

(that's how I first found out about Xenonauts), and I found this interview of our beloved leader who was interviewed by indiegamemag

Next, I found some animations and sounds. Here's the

and
. Someone really liked Aleksi's air combat music. So much so, that they put it into this
(at about 04:23 into the video). Oh, and did somebody say mod? Here's some of oracle1990's work on female xenonauts.

Remember the kickstarter, when we were all trying to promote it? A couple of people promoted goldhawk's kickstarter on youtube:-buttonmasher and

.

And finally, Xenonauts is used a good example of

(although the specific example of why Chris is a good example is brought up right near the end). Edited by Max_Caine

Yeah, there really are a lot of alpha LPs. I'm almost afraid people will wear themselves out before the game is out. :P

I liked the interview of Chris. I was impressed with how relaxed and natural he was in front of the camera and how well he spoke. In job interviews I tend to stumble over my words, when I'm not going completely blank and can actually think of something to say, that is. So maybe I'm just easily impressed, but I think he did a very good job.

Also, Chris looks younger than I'd imagined! I guess I didn't have any particular reason to think otherwise, but I did.

I wave my arms too much when being interviewed, unfortunately.

Chris: ...or a UFO strafes a

Me: Say military base, say military base...

Chris: ...park.

Great, now I have visions of Chris running round the office yelling 'Danger Will Robinson' when anyone tries to ask him a question.

Maybe Chris has Italian blood. I've never met one that could speak without using their hands.

Thanks for the link mate, at least now I have something to watch at work. :P
