Hello everybody, SlimKirby here....and I am back for a new Let's Play!
Although this game is not really new to my channel, this is the first time I am exploring through this game with good video quality and commentary, so I hope you guys can enjoy this redone tribute to a classic project of mine.
I originally did this game back in July and August of 2007 for a complete walkthrough of the entire game. Although it did have bad quality and no commentary, it became the biggest success of my first year of Youtube, with all of the videos having at least 1,000 or 2,000 views, the first video having over 35,000 views, and being the most viewed video on my channel (until recently, now the #1 video is "Mario Party 3! Chilly Waters - Part 1"). I will be deleting the old project near the end of the LP or after this project is completed.
It feels good going back through this game again, because not only is it a tribute to my channel of the olden days, it's also a tribute to one of the best sleeper hit games of all time, one of the best modern video game based on a television show, and one of the best adaptations of the "Grand Theft Auto" style of gameplay (all of these in my opinion btw).
I do have some concerns about this project.
- First of all, this project may take awhile. My original project took 60 videos, and even with more video time now, it will still easily reach around 40 mark. It's not really the number that I am addressing though. I am also addressing the fact that I am in college now, and there will more than likely be situations where I have to ignore an update to focus on more important things. Keep this in mind!
- Secondly, the Youtube copyright extravaganza is also a concern, since I am working with a cartoon show video game. During my research of the Youtube copyright guidelines, I see no direct mention of video games, but that doesn't change the fact that they are still copyrighted content. Unfortunately, at this time I have one strike already on my Youtube account for copyright (a strike I really, REALLY want to protest since that video has long been deleted, and I obviously got the message (seriously, I don't see why Youtube guideline strikes are removable and not these)). Even with that one strike, I should be protected for the moment, and if I do happen to get a copyright complaint on this project, I should still have enough time to delete the videos to prevent any further action from being taken, and that would be the end of that. However, things can fall through. I will say though, if my account does get removed or deleted because of this project, I encourage all of you to report any other Simpson LPs that are out there, because that would be totally unfair. The way I see it though, my original project has been up on my channel since late 2007, some videos have a lot of views already, and this game was released back in 2003, so I should be ok. It's just unfortunate that Youtube has been very stingy about stuff like this as of late.
This LP will be a 100% playthrough of the game. When I say 100%, I mean to the extent of one straight-forward playthrough. I will be doing all of the missions, bonus missions, andstreet races, destroying all of the wasp cameras, obtaining all of the level gags, getting all the costumes and vehicles that ARE required, and the vehicles gotten through the street races. Anything else that requires coins to spend, but are unnecessary to finish the game, I will be ignoring. I'll probably go into more detail about this later in the project.
Anyways, that is about it I guess. I hope you guys enjoy this project! I know I'll enjoy playing it! :P
