  1. Haven't been on these forums for a while, but massive congratulations to you both on getting married! All the best and hope you have a lovely (and extended, man, do you ever take extended time off from this?) honeymoon!
  2. Thanks for all the episodes Ross! Have a happy New Year and get some rest Looking forward to whatever's coming next. And I think it has to be said, you've definitely ended on a strong note, great episode to finish with.
  3. That must have been an absolute nightmare. I had not a clue with pretty much anything said by the in-game characters. You are a hero!
  4. I don't do this nearly enough (or at all, come to think of it), so thank you very much danielsangeo for your ever- and omnipresent subtitles! And thanks to HLPrincess for adding them to the youtube videos as well I like having subtitles, they seem to somehow reassure me.
  5. Thanks for the subs and bonus points for the Airplane reference Today seems a good day for jokes, somehow.
  6. I don't think a proxy is enough to circumvent the block; as far as I know, you'd need someone from outside the country to actually send you the data, as providers are blocking everything that's coming from YouTube. Maybe Ross could provide JudasPhysicist with an early exclusive download link though?
  7. Hang on, Notch is a Ross Scott fan? Puns aside, Notch has just gone up a notch in my book.
  8. I tend to buy games in cheap sales anyway (hooray for Steam!), so enjoyability is a lot more important criterion for a game than price for me. I'm not going to spend my time playing a game I don't enjoy, whereas I'll happily buy a game I do enjoy even if it offers only a couple of hours of gameplay. Alternatively: 'get into', not 'get' : P. Or is that my confusion and does that phrasal verb not mean what I think it does?
  9. BTG, Atvis: I'm going to say that you're both WAY too optimistic as far as the sales:votes ratio goes. I'm sure you remember the Freeman's Mind Gathering Ross organised some time ago - if I recall correctly the ratio of people actually visiting to those that said that they would visit was roughly 1:400. Now I think there's reason to expect a significantly better ratio in this case, but as an upvoter myself I have to admit that whether I'll buy this pack or not also depends on whether I'll be able to get into DOTA or not when this pack releases. Hopefully Valve do make this happen, though, as until then the ratio of buyers:voters will remain rather low anyway...
  10. Your choice of smiley seems a bit off there, HLPrincess. O_o
  11. Two slightly popular guys!? That channel has over 550 000 subscribers! That's probably a larger fanbase than we are, and let's face it, the potential customer base really isn't going to be much larger than the fanbase. In fact, that's probably going to be Valve's biggest issue with this - that aside from to Freeman's Mind fans, they're not going to sell a lot of these. I hope this won't have to wait for a year and a half...
  12. I for one enjoyed most of the lines in the trailer : D. Also, you just broke 6000 votes... better have that Freeman's Mind episode at the ready!
  13. OK, I've been able to find and upvote (is that a word?) the announcer pack! However, I noticed that it doesn't show up under the 'announcer' category. To make it easier to find you should probably add an 'Announcer' tag to the pack, if you can. Thanks for the time and effort you put into this side project, Ross! Looking forward to hearing Freeman yell about towers and barracks.
  14. I think it's a great idea, but unfortunately I don't play DOTA. I really hope there is a significant enough part of FM fans that do to convince you!
  15. I wouldn't have guessed, but two days ago was Episode 43's first anniversary... and I've been waiting from the moment it was released. I'm still hoping there'll be a downloadable copy some time, but since Ross is currently releasing an episode every two weeks, while simultaneously working on a mystery project and messing up his own computer, I would expect he doesn't have a LOT of time to also work on downloadable copies of older episodes. So it might still be a while.
  16. Yet another episode without singing : P, still liked it though! The sound effects have a lot more 'oomph' now, makes the tank a lot more threatening. Though there is little a rocket launcher can't fix... I hate to be 'that guy', but I assume that due to your current mass mind-production of Freeman's, downloadable copies of earlier episodes (43 and 44, specifically) are somewhat lower priority? Don't get me wrong, I'm completely fine with more shiny new episodes instead of old ones, but this 'Freeman's Mind' folder of mine is feeling a bit left out. I am a completionist : P
  17. It is much appreciated, thank you sir! Kind of annoyed at myself because I missed the stream (you really picked a good one to stream, with all the singing : P), though I don't suppose I would have had the time to watch anyway... exams -.-
  18. Tabletka, you can download the subtitles danielsangeo made and just open the file in notepad if you want to read the text. It will contain the timings as well, but you can just read over those or manually delete them.
  19. Absolutely brilliant : D the wait may have been a part of it, but I really enjoyed this episode. I can imagine it gets difficult to keep things fresh after 45 episodes, so the singing was simply genius. May need a little help from danielsangeo to understand every single word, though... Great to hear that everything worked out in the end. I watched this one on blip.tv, with adblocker disabled, though the video player decided to freeze after the video... may decide to wait for downloadable copies again in the future. Anyway, great episode and hopefully Ross will be able to afford to stay alive for a little longer as well now!
  20. There was someone who made a file to open all of the episodes at once, can't this very helpful person also make a file that automatically opens all blip.tv ads, puts your speakers on mute and minimizes your browser for 30 seconds? Also, 16 HOURS. Going to stay up until 4 pm tomorrow for that!
  21. I'm with Judasphysicist on this, though, this has to be an unintentional error due to some bot/automatic mechanism and not a thought-through rejection of the episode. It's still stupid and pointless, but probably nothing more than that. Let's be patient for now, rusty pitchforks may be blunt but they're not any less painful .
  22. Well, that wasn't exactly the start everyone was hoping for... : / I'm OK with waiting for new episodes, but bullshit like this after everything Ross already had to go through feels pointless and annoying. Let's hope they get this sorted out without another change of publishing company.
  23. Good luck getting around the ban. In my country, we complain about an (easy to avoid) ban on sites such as the Piratebay (hell, we have an aspiring political party that openly stands for piracy - 'the Pirates' party'), but at least that's an understandable move on part of our Government. Blocking sites like blip.tv really seems like the Goverment is going through a lot of trouble just to annoy people - there doesn't appear to be a party that gains anything by that. No offence to whatever country you live in, of course.
  24. Good to hear Freeman's found a new home : ), I just hope blip.tv won't mean that you lose a lot of income. As a suggestion: you could try uploading 'notifications' (e.g. short trailers) on your own channel first whenever a new episode airs on blip.tv and link people through. I assume you won't be making money off your own account/less than you would off blip.tv? I think most people that don't follow FM/CP as closely will keep looking for new episodes on YouTube, but I bet most of them would be willing to go to blip.tv if you link them through.
  25. But as you mention, you'd probably get a game that's very much like MP3, i.e. 60% cutscene and 40% corridor shooter... Yes, it's funny to hear a character react to everything, but I feel the machinima/movie genres are a lot more appropriate for that than an actual video game, simply because you won't get a lot of gameplay or interesting interaction with the world. You're just watching and listening at that point.
