Hey, when exactly do you delete raw recording files? After you have edited the video or after you uploaded them to Youtube? :) Just want to know because the last week or so I have been making a lot of videos but I accidentally deleted a 67 GB file... So yeah that was not smart x3
When it’s uploaded and public, and I can be sure that I don’t need to re-render anything.
Hey, Hannah. I was just going through some of your slightly older videos and watched your videos from the War of the Overworld Beta and was wondering, are you ever gonna go back and play the campaign? I recall you saying that you might, and that you might also be able to do some PvP Yogdungeons type thing. I think that would be really cool if you went back and did that.
I’m conscious that it’s around, and I definitely want to play it again - but I’ve got so many games on my plate currently!
So in one of the latest Shadow of Mordor vids, you said that Lewis had problems with the cart of grog quest/mission/thing. So, does that mean he's farther along in the story than you? (Also, how's he doing, considering his lack of batman knowledge?) Anyway, loving the series, and hope you're feeling better.
He’s finished it. He didn’t do many side quests though.
I'm a skaven (ratling) fanatic, but watching you and rythian play Shadow of Mordor has inspired me to start learning Black Speech. Being a Lord of the Rings fan, would you ever try to learn the language as well? It would certainly help you come up with more titles for your Shadow of Mordor series (assuming you run out of orcish words ^_^U ).
There’s only about twenty words in existence, so that’ll be a short education!
After seeing all the stuff about the new patch in WoW, I decided to finally give it a go, I've been playing for a week and enjoying it thoroughly! But one thing I noticed is that many areas such as the streets in Stormwind are sparsely populated with players. After playing another MMO for 8 years I've noticed this has happened too, many areas which used to be crowded years ago aren't anymore, which kind of takes the "MMO feel" away :( When you first started playing WoW was this the case? Thanks!
You might be on a quiet server, ours is usually pretty packed at peak times. Also, most of Stormwind is usually quiet, all the players hang around the auction house and bank.
After reading that ask about recognition on the street, I have to share this. Back in June I was having a rough morning and running late for work. While I was cutting through Downtown LA, I noticed two ladies on the sidewalk. I thought "They look like Kim and Ha- holy shit" And sure enough it was you and Kim. I was so excited, it certainly brought my morning up. I wanted to say something but I was driving and wasn't sure how to say something that didn't seem creepy shouting from the car.
Well that’s cool! Think we must have been off to E3 :)
Hi Hannah, I'm still I school, but have interests in game developing, directing, and writing. As a male, how can I portray women in ways that are not offensive? I am a strong believer in feminism and equality.
For some reason the portrayal of women still seems to elude everyone, and when it happens correctly it’s like someone’s just invented the wheel. Treat them like normal characters/people and check what George R.R. Martin had to say on it, and you’re probably off to a good start.
Nothing, enjoying a night off of work this year (we couldn’t book anywhere for a party). In spirit, I will be Lara, Mystique, Ellie and a million other kick ass ladies - but in reality, I’ll probably just chill out on the sofa and watch horror films.
Hi, Hannah and Mr. Owl. I really love Kim and your Fright Night series. Any plans on continuing Montas? If not what games are you planning on playing or are there any you want to play? (Sorry if this is a repeat question! I haven't seen it before.) Also, to Mr. Owl -- What is it like being a part of the Yogscast and working with Hannah? ^_^ Hope you both have a great day, thank you!
Yes, when we have spare time to record more! Also Evil Within is coming…
Mr Owl: it’s pretty cool, she lets me have all the space I want to fly around - and all the worms I could ever eat!
Hey Hannah! I don't know if this has been asked already, but are we going to be seeing iPhone, and other phone cases in the Yogscast Store? Personally I'd love a monster hunters phone case but just wondering if we're going to be seeing any phone cases at all in the near future?
Unlikely, the store.yogscast.com store has to make everything in batches before they sell anything (versus Spreadshirt or similiar which makes them to order), and I can’t see them making vast numbers of phone cases, especially with new models coming out constantly.
how often are you recognised or approached in random places like in the street and how do you feel about this? :)
Rarely - unlike the guys, us ladies seem to get away with moving around the general population in stealth. The rare times I’ve been recognised, it’s always been an awkward situation like a cashier serving me at a checkout, or someone on the phone for customer service. Otherwise, zero times being stopped in the street.
Hey Hannah, are you ever going to be going back and doing anymore YogSims? Just heard you mention it in your latest Watchdogs video and rememberred how much I loved that series. Also, loving all the content at the moment, thanks!
Hey Hannah! Silly question, but you've been using the word 'tat' a lot and I kind of picked it up. But since I'm Dutch, it doesn't really make sense to my friends and when I google it, I get no clear description. What's it from and what does it officially mean?
It means ‘stuff’, usually the kind of stuff that you’d throw out in a clear out. You know, that old jumper which has a hole in it or a kettle which leaks and needs replacing.
Hi Hannah! What do you think about children and teens (10-12 yersars of age) watching youUT videos?
The responsibility is on parents for anyone under 13 on Youtube. I don’t really mind either way who watches it, but I don’t like it when parents blame me for their kids being unsupervised at that age and watching me play games like The Forest.
Hi Hannah, I apologise if you have been asked this before, what is your thoughts on the AC Rogue and Unity games being gen specific? Also will you be doing a play through of both? (I'm a big AC fan so I know I'll probably end up getting both but I'm interested in what others think)
Yup, playthrough of both if I can manage it!
I don’t see a problem with it, it’s an eventuality. It happened back with Xbox and then Xbox 360 - it’s just the current teenage audience are too young to remember. It also happened back in the early days of DOS and Windows OS - I could never buy Worms 2 at first because I didn’t have Windows 95 :(
At some point, developers have to take the leap to next gen, or lose out, and a lot of the time the big AAA titles have been worked on in secret for two to three years (usually at least two with AC games) - and sometimes this means that they have to start from scratch if a new console is announced, or rewrite tonnes of code.
It’s impossible and sometimes punishing to a game to try and put it out on all current gen platforms - this is why I think Watch Dogs has such bad optimization and had those graphics rollbacks. They started making it for current gen, next gen happened, and they tried to split themselves too much to please everyone and ended up with a game that wasn’t as good as it could have been. You can’t please everyone, so better to develop and improve graphics, engine and lots of other things than stay stuck in the mud without progression.
What I don’t like is next gen games that aren’t available for PC on launch that have always been out the same time (Tomb Raider sequel, grrr), there’s no reasoning for that - especially on PC, which can handle all and everything that previous and next gen can throw at it.
Hello, Hannah sorry to bother you with another question. I wanted to know how you guys pick who join the Yogscast. Ever since I watched the first episode of SOI surviving the night I wanted to join the Yogscast. But now I'm wondering if it is even possible to join in the future cause I know right now its impossible cause I run a very small channel but someday if the Yogscast are around I wonder if it is possible?
It was originally a tight circle of friends that slowly expanded to add more people we gamed with. Now it’s more picking channels which have potential. People can apply via firstname.lastname@example.org - but they usually need a good number of subs to qualify for looking into (30k?).
Have you ever received email from "concerned parents" about their kids viewing you guys?
I’d probably say we’ve had less than twenty of those emails in the last three years? And a lot of those kids are under 13 years old and should be supervised on Youtube, according to the terms of service.
You mentioned people showing up at YogTowers unannounced, and before reading that post I didn't think it happened at all. Does it happen often?
Not as much as it used to, I think people have realised. We do still get more in the summer when kids are off school, and also when their parents decide that a trip to see us without asking is a…good idea?
Since Lewis showed off everyone playing WoW on his twitter, how's the 6.0 stat squish and class changes going for you?
Well, I still have no new moonkin form, the new eclipse is odd but okay. The hilarious thing is how many butthurt druids are crying on the WoW forums about travel form being condensed, and demanding them to be split again - because they want the ability to use stag form whenever they want. Bear in mind NO-ONE uses stag form whenever they want. They just want the option.
I'm really sorry that I'm asking you and I'm probably being incredibly annoying and you've probably got a billion other of these asks but i've just got to ask. I really love your videos, no question to that! And I love the music you've added in your Watchdogs: Bad Blood series! But in today's episode, you used the song Moonshine by MDK. I LOVED IT. So I scoured Youtube, SoundCloud, Google. But I couldn't find it ANYWHERE. So i'm just wondering where you got the song from? kthanksluvubye (ー∀ー；)
MDK’s Youtube channel, which is in the video description, is slowly releasing these tracks as they’re from his newest album. You might be able to get the whole thing early via his Bandcamp (also on his Youtube channel).
Have you & Nilesy thought about building an Aviary for all of your birds in Evicted? Something like a big glass dome would be cool so they could fly around & stay safe, especially since you have so many flying familiars/pets in your menagerie!
You can’t cage the birds! That’s what the owl sanctuary is for - and why we might be going back there!
