I’ve previously mentioned the awesome guys from PretzelCast, namely Sven “SeriousCreeper” Paroth and Michael “xwcg” Schwarz, on a number of occasions – and even appeared in one of their “Let’s Play” videos, as well as being on the same team as them for CTR4. But if you thought the two of them were pretty much inseparable when it comes to gaming, you’d be quite wrong. Both of them stream single-player material – and not just Minecraft, either – and you can find their individual YouTube channels here and here.
In particular, something which always tickles my funny-bone is Sven’s 90 Seconds of Awesomeness Tutorial – there are three so far, and a fourth is planned (though silly stuff like work gets in the way *sigh*).
In them, Sven tackles a single subject – how to make a map; how to create pistons; and how to produce indirect light sources – and condenses the whole process down (with some nifty editing) into those titular 90 seconds. For some reason, Sven chose to use a rather silly voice, but the reason is irrelevant: it helps to make what could have been a very dry topic into something which is charmingly goofball1… And I do rather like the running joke of him killing pigs “… just for fun” – though in the Indirect Light video… well, you’d better watch for yourself 😉
I really hope – as do many others – that Sven will get the chance to make more contributions to 90 Seconds of Awesomeness, and if you’ve not seen them yet, you’ll find them in this specific YouTube playlist! Go on, watch them… just for fun 😉
1 And since I can do a very similar voice, it has led to some confusion when he and I are in voice chat together with others… 😉
