"Creating EPIC game video, need contributors" , posted Sat 28 Apr 08:04post reply

Ok, here's the deal. Most of you who know me, know what I do. I break games, any type I can get my hands on. Mercenaries, Saints Row, Bullet Witch, Marvel vs Capcom 2, Rumble Roses, whatever.

Now, it's been almost a year since my last video(not counting the just released Bullet Witch exploit/bug video) which was for Kakuto Chojin on xbox. So, in that time I've accumulated a ton of knowledge about random games and their issues which I want to document in one hell of a video.

I'm talking a massive project that should include at LEAST 5-10 games, and if it's large enough(over 30-45 seconds per game at minimum), then I'm looking to mix in multiple music tracks as well. The problem being is that I can only do SO much, so in turn I'm dropping in here to see if I can pick up some help in the form of gamers who have a bug/glitch/funny idea for a game that they can RECREATE on command and want to see it in a video.

Literally, we're ready to take almost anything for this video, including 3d platformers, 2d titles, fighters, action adventures, whatever. If there are a group of you that want to work together on a specific title then by all means do so as EVERY single person involved gets credited for this, regardless of the amount of work they do.

Also, each person/crew should document each glitch/bug/oddity and how it works so the general public can have a reference point to use when attempting to recreate what we're going to be showing off.

Here's a short example list of titles that we're personally working on:
KOF:MI2
MvC2
Dead Rising
Earth Defense Force
Shadow of the Colossus
Saints Row
River City Ransom(GBA version)
Any pc title not using a trainer or hack(unless it's a skin that helps the clip in a humorous way)
etc

Here's a short example list of what we're looking for in the clips:
Bugs
Glitches
Falling through a stage
Walking through solid objects
NPC ragdoll bugs
Player ragdoll bugs
Climbing on top of objects normally inaccessible
Hilarious explosions or happenstances surrounding carnage
Infinite combos(that haven't been seen before, we KNOW what Magneto reset infs look like)
Retardedly funny combos(think outside of the box)
Badass racing footage(some titles allow you to save your replays) or stunts
Juggles/Combos in games that don't normally have them(ex: Super Mario Bros 2 for NES)

Anything remotely odd or out of the ordinary is worth us taking a look at, so don't be afraid to get in contact. Hell, if a glitch/bug has been done before but you find a new use for it or a way to expand on it we'll take that too.

I have a personal beef against anything using the buzzword 'epic'.





I found Kagami's sword in a junk yard.
I will rule the world and find that truly good cup of coffee.

While I appreciate your opinion on the use of the word "epic", that's the only thing that can really detail the scope we're working with. As of right now we're 95% of the way done with the Saints Row bug section, 50% of the way through the intermission, and the European crew is finalizing all of the never released bugs/exploits for RR:XX on 360.

We still need work in the form of funny in game stuff(video obviously), combos or anything else. I personally plan to delve back into what started me with game video work(MvC2) and I'll be setting up a crew to tackle ideas for KOF:MI2 combos as well as working with a local crew on all kinds of Mercenaries exploits/stunts/bugs, but ANYTHING people can contribute would be so fucking awesome as we haven't done a huge contribution video since early 2002-2003ish(we're aiming to get a good 10 minutes of footage)

long story short:
Got really REALLY sick, been working freelance for ign, and a computer upgrade kept me from doing videos until just recently(new component in capture box makes shiny videos(and ironically enough, it opens up all kinds of options for high quality console game animations)

No, the term you're looking for is 'ambitious'.

The real thing you should be concerned with right now is you don't seem to have a theme going here; you're just looking for material so you can find one. Now, I'm no film student, but even someone not versed in developing videos knows there's got to be a point to it beside watching funny glitches.

"Ambitious" is good...you could basically make a whole video baed on nothing but the heinous Sonic 1 GBA port. ALso, Mr.WF has the emagius 0 curse!

One has to remember that there are videos out there for the sole reasons of demonstrating combos, matches, exploits, bugs, speed runs, or even just soley for showcasing a game's cinematic quality.

Whether or not you enjoy those videos is purely a personal preference, but I'd rather like to stay on track in offering people who have skills a chance at showcasing their tricks, combos, exploits, bugs, or other funny/odd happenings to a fairly wide audience(re: this video will be distributed on youtube, our main site[which generates between 200k and 600k visits per month], and possibly to some other outlets as well if all goes well)

Regarding the theme/flow:
As with most compilation videos, this COULD turn into a pseudo clusterfuck of just random clips with no direction. However, the idea that we are fishing for footage just so we can find a "theme" is outright wrong. Our local and abroad crews(before taking any other material via this post) will be doing 70-80% of the video ourselves.

I myself will be covering Saints Row, Mercenaries, MvC2, KOF:MI2, as well as creating the intermission and possibly even the RcR(gba version) section, while the European group is working on RR:XX(unreleased exploits/glitches) and KOF:MI2

Regarding the "lack of a theme" we apparently have:
The theme itself is of our concern only at this present time(our = everyone involved), as anything we leak could spoil how we have the timing/audio/synch/or overall flow of the video to our fans, and the people(from average joe to the cynical 'hardcore' gamer) are what we take into consideration the most.

I can however, let loose the fact that our editing style will remain the same(simple, yet effective) and that our choices in music will stay within the random awesomeness that our fans have come to expect.

Now I don't want to be rude in the slightest, but I'd rather appreciate it if we could stick to this being about the content and the people involved, instead of you questioning our ability/motives.

Update:
The intermission is finished(running at a solid 1:49) and took me about 4 days to get where I was happy with it. The Saints Row section is going to be compiled next, so I can get it out of the way(and free up used hdd space) before I start working on KOF:MI2 and MvC2.

I'm also happy to announce that we'll be getting a mirror via a very VERY well known online game site, and if all goes well more should be jumping on our proverbial bandwagon of ownage soon enough.

Update:
The Saints Row section is finished, and it's a little weird in how it works. Since one of the main features is ragdoll climbing, the video could have been both long and boring with multiple clips playing at normal speed....to alleviate that I sped up the climbing clips to around 150%, and put them on the ass end of the video.

This allowed a better overall flow, as until the major climbing clips show up(near the end) the video is mostly focused on being quick, funny, and matching the music. Slingshot jumps off of cars, 3 story+ high jumps off of garbage bags, being spawned in under the hospital staircase(thus making you 100% invincible to all things NOT fire), the classic dancing dumpsters bug, vehicles getting stuck in solid objects(in mid air), and a super precise pipe bomb toss(in the window of an on-coming vehicle going at full speed) are just some of the clips being shown in this portion of our flick.

As of right now the local guys and myself have put our focus towards Mercenaries(as many of you know, we have a shitton of neat features for that title that we've never released), and if all goes well this should be one of the more well done sections(super speed boosts, taking out helicopter(s) with inanimate objects, creating a pseudo shotgun using a tunnel, a group of jeeps and some c4, stacking c4 ontop of itself until you have a 9 layer brick and THEN using it, vehicle juggling(w/north korean rpgs), and extreme accuracy shots(no zoom sniper[which we specialize in], north korean rpg, grenades, etc)
