Taco-Man Vs Lightning Bliss

PFFFFF what an AVGN copy...

What a great video. I enjoyed this one a lot. You really put effort into your videos and I'm sure it takes a while to finish them. And what Taco Man says at the end is actually true. People want more videos but, they don't understand little money actually gets made off of making videos and it consumes a lot of time. That is why I am thankful when artists like yourself take the time to keep the series going.

Yup. Amen!

lmao, ending deja vu! I thought this'd he a Taco Man-specific trip through an Atari-like world, but it was a pretty educational venture through a boatload of games I've never played instead, a time before my time, games before my games, accompanied by an entertaining voice act and an ending moral. Or not. Nicely animated!


What does he say at 10:26? "They don't want me to make any my off"?

Do you record the audio while playing, or do you dub over the game footage?

Also, was it supposed to be a joke that you released your Night Trap game before AVGN started his show? It looks like his first episode was in April of 2006, and your game was in October of 2006.

Samination responds:

"They don't want me to make any money off my videos" was the line. And it's no joke! I consider Taco-Man's Night Trap a pre-cursor to Taco-Man Plays/Game Master. Since I didn't have the proper equipment to record game footage yet, I made an animation instead. Production of the game started MONTHS before Oct and AVGN was still unknowned until much later after releasing his video. So, it's just kind of a slap in the face when people said I copied him when I was already heading in that direction. I mean, for our generation, video games were out life, so it'd only make sense that we'd all make shows talking about them.
