I always wanted to do one of these myself at least once, but don't have the slightest idea on how to start. Like what sort of software/hardware I'd need, how to edit videos, etc.
I know WB and ND make their own, so they're good to ask for tips... hmm...
it's not really that hard at all. the editing takes a lot of practice, but other than that it's just getting used to the idea of talking while playing games. i've seen a lot of videos where people just kind of shut down and go into that game-state where you clam up and focus and that doesn't make for very interesting watching. making LPs, and being successful at building a following, is actually pretty difficult because you need to be ON constantly and you need to be constantly entertaining, whether it be with your jokes or the gameplay or what-have-you.
but, again, that just comes with time and practice.
