It's campy and fun. I like Simon (Honeydew). He has the right blend of role play and breaking the fourth wall mixed with humor that makes the series worth watching in my opinion. The boss monsters were kinda stupid, but given what Minecraft gives them it wasn't bad. It definitely could of been worse and I couldn't of done any better. Good on them for doing it at least. Hopefully they go into another season and we get to see what happens to Daisy and Old Peculier. I like him the most, probably because we know next to nothing about him other than a couple things so it is easy to fill in the gaps with whatever your imagination comes up with.
It would be cool if the other people on their server were the only ones in on it and Simon and Lewis get to experience it all without knowing what the heck is going on. Maybe they are, but Lewis tends to be too straightforward to pull it off most times. IE, leading questions and the like. Oh well, it is entertaining and I watch it when I am in the mood to role play and suspend all disbelief. Hehehe.
Yeah, those two are hilarious. I watch not so much for tips for playing but for the comedy of two British guys bumbling through the experience. I can't decide whether that bit about Terrorvale was staged, but as was mentioned above, I think it works very well.
By the way, make sure you check out their "Survival Island" series on youtube as well. AND for those with a serious dependency, subscribe to their podcast, the "YoGPoD"
It's the only minecraft video's I watch. I love the yogscast.
1. It is staged, it's not people hacking onto their server, do you think people they would go along with all that crap, and make awesome cut scenes and titles and ****?
I think they are all on vent/teamspeak, but only simon and lewis are talking. Simon and Lewis maybe get told before hand to go to places, but the rest is ad lib.
2. You cannot connect to their server unless you connect to Lewis's Hamachi he is hosting.
3. It is where I learned to play minecraft, they are awesome, and trumps any 'lets play' series on youtube.
