Soundspeed's Funhouse

theangelofallponies asked: Gonna do anything for Easter Soundspeed?

Curl up into a ball and cry because I’m alone and nobody loves me

Yeah I’m gonna go to the park

theangelofallponies asked: My favorite episode of all time is you reacting to "Friendship is Witchcraft" Cherry Bomb, Seed no evil, and mlp putting your hoof down, which mlp vid did you most like (having most fun) reacting to?

Definitely The World’s Biggest Tea Party with Cobalt. It started off a bit slow but when we got more comfortable it turned into a load of fun. That hour just flew by haha

By myself, I’d have to put it up to Dusk’s Dawn. Even though it wasn’t the best commentary, the source material was amazing and I still had fun watching it.

riddlebox-love asked: WoodenToaster or The Living Tombstone? Just a question of musical tastes from one enthusiast of miniature equines to another.

I think I have a slight preference to WoodenToaster, though I don’t listen to either of them very regularly. I prefer Slyphstorm yo

Hmmmm, I should try him (her, it?) Either way, do you recommend any songs?

From Slyphstorm, Pegasus Device is a must listen (especially if you like WoodenToaster’s Rainbow Factory) but his entire library is really good. In general, though, any of Phillypu’s show song piano covers are amazing as well, if that’s your kind of genre

opth121 asked: What if i told you i could get my hands on a box of soundspeed plushies for cheap!?

That would be amazing. I’ve always really wanted one but I’ve been nervous about commissioning another one since the whole incident with Cobalt’s, plus that one had crazy sentimental value to it so yeah

Still would love to get one though

toksyuryel asked: There's a fair number of people out there who do take commissions for that sort of thing. The real issue is having the funds to pay them for it.

Funny story about that. For Cobalt’s birthday last year I got him a Rainbow Dash plushie, and for Christmas he tried commissioning a plushie of Soundspeed. The person made it basically all the way, then stopped responding for 4 months before closing their deviantArt earlier this month, so no Soundspeed plushie ;~;

theangelofallponies asked: Soundspeed, you are are the best there is, anyway I could get a mlp plushy of you?

Trust me, if I could find a way to get a Soundspeed plushie made, I’d commission thousands. But I don’t think that’ll end up happening ;~;

xxsoundspeedxx asked: hello yes i would like to play competitive gun shoot man but everyone on tf2lobby called me mean names and made me cry so how do i do good at video games???

Stack.

At least have one friend/teammate with you on the same team if you aren’t confident by yourself. I recommend having them part of your combo if you are Big Gun Shoot Man/Medicinal Dental Expert/Demonstrations Explosive Man Without Rocket/Fire Freak. Stack with a friend on Medic, stack with a friend as your pocket if you are the Medic. If you don’t need no heals or are healing people, join up with a friend anyway if you can.

They can tell you what you might have done wrong afterwards so as long as you have a SourceTV or a P-REC if they’re not part of the combo. Just get somebody with you especially if you’re more sensitive than a dude’s balls or you aren’t comfortable by yourself in a lobby/center, because let’s face it, some of us don’t have the time to grow thicker skin when we walk into a pub just wanting to have a good game, and there’s five Heavies backin’ their ass against a wall with 2 Engies on the last point to cap and 5 Spies on your team all trying to practice the same Stabbystabby/Slurgi hitbox bullshit but are failing miserably. 

never do TF2Center by myself anymore because I am very aware having a voice that can pass off as a 13-year-old, the worst positioning in the game, and the most intentionally shitty calls when I don’t give a fuck because 1) trying really hard on TF2Center when the Pyro isn’t watching your back and Spy wants your booty is pointless and 2) people who sound like kids aren’t allowed to use a microphone on the internet. (I also can’t ever verify TF2Center’s Mumble for whatever reason so I never really do centers because I put my team at a huge disadvantage not being able to comm as the Med.) I’m usually with at least one teammate/friend (which is more often than not, Randum since I have faith in his DM) when I lobby up. 

Stacking logic also works with games like DOTA, LoL, 2v2 SCII, CoD, Starbound on an open server, anything that has multiplayer vs. multiplayer. Two heads are better than one; even if you both ain’t got skill to show, chances are if you enjoy each other’s presence, that’s all you need because there’s a 90% chance you won’t enjoy the rest of your lobby team’s presence.

Also for being good, just practice practice practice. Adapt good habits, drop pubbing bad habits. Learn, look around, study, implement. Surf, jump, MGE, aim. Toss the sandvich when the Medic asks for it. Shoot the Spy when you see him near your teammate. Puff your Medic every 5-10 seconds with fire or an airblast. Bomb the Medic even if it means your life if your Medic goes down. Use milk if you can’t use the pistol well. Stab all the backs and sap all the shit. 

This is phenomenal advice and you are a phenomenal person, now I am ready to tackle the world of competitive gun shoot man

To add onto this:

Lobbies have a mix of skill levels, it’s not the best substitute for competitive.  It is nice to use as a stepping stone, but keep in mind that it’s not the most balanced thing and you may not develop the best habits.  For people being mean… do take into consideration if someone is giving a bit of constructive criticism and ignore outright haters [local mute in Mumble is a wonderful thing].  It’s not like you’re rostered on a team or in pug.nahl where people are counting on you to deliver to win.  I second joining up with a friend if you’re a bit shy, it’s nice to have someone you know.

My experience with Tf2center in general was going in alone, when the beta was first released.  I sucked and I still suck but I met people there and my friendslist grew.  My skin got hardened [but not cocky… there’s a difference] and I took whatever feedback I got and tried to shed bad habits.  Now we stack teams like nobody’s business and rock and roll and have a ton of fun.  So don’t be afraid to use it to meet cool folks!

Some tips to add on to Uber’s list:  Use lobby to practice things.  Use it to play smarter, to get used to 9v9 or 6v6 restrictions, try rollouts, experiment with weapons, practice calls, map locations.  Learn where and when Spies go for stabs, where Snipers usually stand, sentry locations, sneaky flanks, places to rocket jump to.  Ask people for tips, don’t be afraid to do so, I’m sure a lot of people would not mind.

If you ever want to go do a lobby together I’m always up for it.  My steam is in my info section of my blog.

Double reblog because reasons

Seriously these are helping a ton and I actually am tempted to take you up on your offer to lobby together, as that would be loadsafun <3

toksyuryel asked: The hell do you mean "I'm not that good personally", you're one of the best. Having an early start's got nothin' to do with it, your commentary is QUALITY and way better than (almost?) everyone else doing this. And I say that confidently because I've listened to almost everyone else's commentary as well. The only one I've really found who is on your tier is Cobalt- and is it any wonder that you two end up working together so frequently? You're both great people and some of the best there is!

STAHP YER MAKIN ME BLUSH

Cobalt is seriously way better than me though

Anonymous asked: dude my little investigations was released you got to play it if you don't i'll be really sad.

Soon

Anonymous asked: I want to be a commentator on youtube any bits of advice you can give?

Honestly, the biggest two pieces of advice I can give are don’t take it super seriously and keep making videos. The sad truth about YouTube commentaries is that there are a lot of them, and that holds true with pony. I’m really not that good personally, I just got lucky because I got an early start. But now that there’s a bunch of saturation, most people who do commentate have a hard time finding an audience, which holds true for Let’s Play, Pony, and pretty much everything. Which means that if you’re just trying to commentate for a cheap popularity, you shouldn’t. What you SHOULD do is commentate because you enjoy it and have fun with it, and if people happen to come along and watch it, then that’s great! But, if you really are serious about building an audience, it’s hard to say what will work because it’s different for everyone. The best thing to do on that front is to just keep making videos. The more you make, the better you’ll get, and the more people will come to watch them. Just keep on making videos, never stop, and eventually somebody is bound to find them.
