We're Back

So its been a loooong 5+ years but I guess its back to square 1.  We've all decided to game together again and have been for some months now.  After all, we didnt want to start uploading videos if we werent sure we could all play together again.  But its been going just fine.  We're still equally as lazy as we used to be and dont game all the time.  Something we hope to change soon.

So this is the clip we set up for fun, created by my good friend Tobeh.  A genius with SFM.  My efforts with the program could be described as laughable at best.  Even borderline insulting.  So what happens now?  Well we've decided to open up a new youtube channel to make a fresh start.  We'll be uploading all our group gaming clips onto this new channel and leaving our current channels for more personal stuff or single playthrough things.  Austins had his channel open for a long time now and I didnt want to shift in with what hes set up or screw with his income over there.  The other reason is I found out recently that youtube is USELESS and BROKEN and many people who are subscribed to our channels dont get updates when we upload stuff.  Youtubes way of fixing this, unsubscribe and resubscribe again.  They broke something during the whole google integrate/remove thing.  So like 80% of our subs dont see anything.  Though I'm sure theres no problem with the HUGE channels, cause bloody favouritism.

The plan for this new channel is whatever small amount we make from it we'll put aside and buy group pack games for the new channel.  It's easier that way.  So if you want to donate its probably best to wait a little.  Why wait?  Because as embarrassing as it is to admit, we still havent really figured out what to call the new channel.   We have a few ideas but nothings grabbing us too much.  Feel free to suggest some if you like.  Maybe something mentioned will make us think of something or just take that suggestion.  One thing we did decide early on though was to not go with Kilplix And Friends.  While that would be a logical choice, we just didnt want our names/aliases to be in the title.

So what are we thinking of doing from here on out..  Group videos for one.  Most likely some streaming too.  And we do hope to set up some stuff to play with people who watch our videos.  But that last bit has no details at the moment.  I guess you could say we'll see how the new channel goes.  I'm completely clueless about this sort of stuff but Austins been doing it for a while now so we'll go with his lead on certain things.  Aside from that stuff I dont know.  We'll just play it by ear.  At the very least there will be videos.  We're thinking of having the new channel up by at least the end of january.  We just want to get the holiday period out of the way and sort out a few other stuff.

In the meantime just check our blogs every now and then for info on when the new channel will be up.  And if you're excited about this, thanks!  It means a lot to us.

And a late Merry Christmas and happy new year!

    1. Thanks! I hope you enjoy our new videos when they go up too. They wont be anything special or high quality/produced like some other channels, but we've never been hardcore with that stuff.

  8. The channel should totally be called TypicalNightofGaming. And any sort of fails or cut moments should go to another channel called TypicalNightofFAIL.

    1. Or they could just use one channel for their group videos and not fuck around with too many channels.

      Delete
    2. Thats the plan. Have 1 channel for our group videos. If it gets popular enough we'll probably use our normal ones less and less since they're broken thanks to youtubes google efforts. New channels dont suffer any issues. So fingers crossed for a unified channel!

  9. First, as an early birthday present this is tremendous news!

    Second, as a moderator of Austin's Twitch I invite you guys to stop by sometime and say hi to the viewers. It would mean a lot to them to see you guys hanging out again, plus it would help spread the word the gang is back together. I'm so happy and proud you guys worked things out.

    Third, I followed Con's Twitter but do either Jed or Cody have one too?

    Fourth, as for a new channel name I'll give it some thought.

    1. Thanks for the message! I rarely use my twitter but I'm like that with social stuff. Jeds pretty much the same as me in that regards. I dont think he has one actually. As for Cody I dont tihnkhe even knows what twitter is lol

  12. I've been away from you guys for so long and this is what I get to wake up to on New Year's Day. I'm so glad you lot are having fun together again.

    My suggestion for a group channel name is "The Dream Team"

  14. How about ConKillsJeCody? all your names. Sounds like some 90's action/comedy movie title.

  21. Really good to hear that you guys are starting things up again. I caught the tail end of the era of you all playing together and it ended almost as soon as I found you all. Really looking forward to seeing new stuff no matter the quality.

    ReplyDelete
  22. In befitting to you my good Con: it's a little long for a group name, but simple enough to describe how I felt watching you guys when you first started putting videos up together: "Badasses & Molotovs." Tell me what you think, and I'm super stoked to see my number one watched group of gamers when I was little back at it again! Good luck you guys! You'll always have me as a faithful subscriber! <3

  23. Yay the crew is back *-* and names for the new channel mmmm... What about TheAwesomeCrew? (i'm not good at naming channels xD) welp happy new year Con and have a nice gaming time

    ReplyDelete
  24. Holy fuck, this is wonderful news! I honestly never expected this. I thought the best case scenario would be you and Austin making up just enough to be civil to each other, but not game again.

    Good on all of you for making up! I hope it sticks!

    I've stuck with you guys since the early days and when you guys split, no other gaming group could rival your chemistry and sense of fun.

    Except for when Jed and Con played stuff together or solo. That's the only place where I get my fun game moments that still has that flair you had as a group.

    Gah, I'm rambling now, but congratulations and I'm looking forward to your guys' new content and I hope you guys have much more fun than before! Just focus on having fun, not on views or anything like that and I guarantee it'll come through to the audience :D

    1. Thanks! And fun was always the number 1 thing for us. Otherwise we would have done really annoying time consuming crap like having super intros and ending themes, advertising our crap to hell, and sticking our faces in the still shots for videos with a stupid dopey surprised face that so many people seem to love doing.

  25. This is so awesome!!

    Name Ideas!! must think of Name ideas...

    Channel Molololotov

    J.A.C.C (First letter of each of your names, nobody shall ever know which "C" belongs to who! >:D)

    The Noobs, The Dead, and the Burning "N-D-B"

    Blaze QUAD (Get it? because you are a squad of four? :D)

  26. This is great! Some of my favourite youtube videos are the ones where you guys are all together having a good ole time with Meet Con as one of my top 5! Im sure that however you guys take this I will support it as much as I can.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I want to say thank you to all of you guys for finally getting back together. I've been watching all of you since the early days of Austin's channel and I'm so glad we're finally able to see that great natural comedy come at it once again. I should also add how much of an impact you guys have had on my life over the years, from just being there in the form of comedic media, to looking at custom maps for Left 4 Dead. You guys inspired me to become a level designer myself through custom map playthroughs. I can't wait to see what more you have in store.

    Thank you.

  30. This is pretty surreal but great news. Certainly will be a blast from the past watching whatever you guys put out first.

    As for a name.. I'm not sure, never been that creative personally. Plus, you guys were well known for L4D but if your playing more than that (which is fair enough) I honestly can't think of anything that wouldn't reference that. Maybe you need to do like a brainstorm or something together? Haha.

    1. I dont think any of us ever expected it either. Hope that card served you well!

    2. Ty for the reply! yeah it did but sadly it's already showing age i'll be moving to a gtx 970 at the end of the month though. Cheers!

      Delete
    3. Great choice! Definitely read up on how the different brands are as some are better than others. Such as gigabyte, MSI are good etc. I've had my eye on that card since last year, but I cant afford an upgrade sadly. Maybe mid year if I'm lucky!

      Delete
    4. Aha! i see you still preference for MSI! I don't like gigabyte i've had a bad experience with them before, i haven't looked into the specifics of each brand but so far i like EVGA,MSI,ASUS i'll be sure to look more into specifics and don't worry! as soon as i can i'll drop a donation so you can yours faster!. Have a good day.

      Delete
    5. Thank you for the kind thought! I want to mention that some lesser brands of the 970 line have something called a Coil Whine. Its basically this high pitched noise the capacitors make when the cards in use. Not all of them do it, and maybe by now most have fixed the issue since I last looked into it. Mind you I dont know anyone who had this issue either so it could be a small thing only some cards got. But definitely read up some reviews for each brand.

  33. This brings a tear to my eye. I've been a long time fan since I was small and now I'll be heading off to college this fall. You guys have brought hours of joy and introduced me to Left 4 Dead. Thank you all so much. Goodluck with the new channel! I'd also like to throw in an idea for the name, The Wrecking Crew.

    1. lol not yet, we've been slightly lazy. Got a few ideas like Typical night of gaming, and recklessgaming/gamers. But we're still not sure. I guess we'll figure it soon.

  35. What about the name Left 4 Noobs just a suggestion

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hey Con!

    Glad to hear the group is going to attempt to make the ol' magic appear. I hope there is no dismay in the future. Though, I'm curious.

    This question is about Left 4 Dead 2 as it is now. I know that back then (even now, perhaps) that you couldn't stand Left 4 Dead 2 from it's characters to even it's music and I can understand that.

    Though now that Valve has put nearly all of Left 4 Dead in Left 4 Dead 2 has your opinion changed at all. Or at the very least made Left 4 Dead 2 bearable just to play through the classic levels?
