We here at Encrazed Crafts are long time fans of internet wizards and legends, Mack and Mesh. Back before everyone and their uncle was doing Reaction videos on youtube, Mack wrangled his unlucky friend Mesh to play some FPS games in front of a camera. Mesh is, shall we say, rather excitable and tends to play the games the same way as us, just with the emotional dial cranked up to eleven. And that’s being modest ^_^
For example, here is the video that quickly earned their place in my heart many years ago. Normally, Mesh plays with Mack right at his side. This time he must have lost a bet, as he played the game completely in the dark and alone! He screams bloody mary during the day and with a friend, so this was quite a sight.
Time passed, they disappeared.
But they came back! Last year they even started a mini-series on Minecraft that quickly became their longest running series yet. I’ll do a post about that next week for Minecraft Monday. It’s good stuff, ya’ll love it XD
Too often do big companies completely forget the bottom line, the sole driving force that got them that comfy chair and massive empire of sales: The Consumer. They have more often than not just set a deadline, tacked on a higher number at the end of the title, and forced games out of the developer’s doors and Mack and Mesh had enough of it. Thus lead to Indie Month which lasted all of October. During which they even had little bonuses for the fans in that you could win one of the games they played for the Indie celebration by sending them an email and answering one of their questions at the end of the respective video.
Here is a vlog of a very suave Mesh telling the fans who just won copies of what games, but first we are presented with a lovely rant about the evils of DLC, the very thing that helped spawn the idea of Indie Month in the first place. Here’s a link to a particularly good part, but be mindful of the surroundings when you hit play. Previous video was bleeped, this one is not. (The part linked to directly is safe, but just a heads up if you watch it ’till the end at work, etc.)
The question was, if Mesh gave a black berry (the fruit, not the smart phone) to a developer, would they make a DLC out of it?
In case you missed it in his accent or deep, ivory eyes, we won a copy! Specifically, I won a copy for the Misses. She doesn’t even know I entered, and she loves tower defense games and mods, so she’ll love this. I already played the first two levels and had a blast even on the training stuff as I unlocked a bunch of achievements that I cannot seem to erase after two attempts of uninstalling and even wiping out all traces of the game off the computer. Those achievements will be slightly awkward to explain, but I don’t think she’ll mind too much XD
So there you have it, folks! Mack and Mesh approved and all that!
I was going to make this the splash/banner image up top, but that meant I had to crop everything out minus his eyes to the bottom tip of his ‘stash and it got pretty darn creepy awful fast haha Sorry Mesh! Maybe once it’s shaved off I’ll toss one up there.
