    So happy to see Max not only playing the game, but also enjoying it. I even saw a couple people in the chat saying they're gonna buy the game. This stream did wonders.

    Also, Nappy vs Max and Co. GODLY. :ollielove:

    Yeah, that went super well. Max loved the game, had so much fun, and they even cancelled playing Skullgirls because TFH was so fun and they couldn't stop. His chat (a few silly tryhards notwithstanding) was also super into it and there was likely a bunch of sales made tonight, or at least made within the next few days or so.

    Plus seeing Nappy body the hell out of him and Steve with all 6 characters is just the business.

    It's funny that I'm subbed to his channel but he always streams so late for me (I wish I was still young and could keep myself awake till 5AM *old man grumbles*).

    Welp, the archive it is!

    How long have Max been streaming the game? Last thing I remember was watching him start and about an hour or so in I fell asleep and woke up to see him still streaming.

    Not counting the beginning of the stream, when they were just looking at palettes and then did some Mail Time, they played TFH for about 5-6 hours. They intended to play Skullgirls, but TFH was so fun that they just couldn't stop. It was awesome.

    The whole thing should be archived on his Twitch channel, though Simmons also crossposts their streams to the YoVideoGames channel.

    The fact that they literally cancelled a scheduled game just to play TFH more got me genuinely happy. And with how large of a channel Max got, the stream will definitely do wonders for the future of the game. I'm hoping other gaming channels pick up on it and try it out. It deserves all the recognition it gets.

    Also, Nappy just bodying Max was hilarious.

    Even better was the chat reaction to it, especially the Arizona and Tianhuo combos. Nappy gave him the business, which we all saw coming, mwaha~

    I'm curious how much of a fight Max would put against Nappy once he gets a good handle on the game. As fun as it was to see him get his butt whooped, watching a tourney-esque fight between the two would shake the very foundations of the earth.

    Also, TFH for EVO 2018 and on. I'd be so there. As of DBFZ wouldn't lure me in enough.

    Aside from popular Streamers and Youtubers, I think the overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam so far will help along as well.

    So, how often do games that Max plays on Yo Videogames end up on his youtube channel in some form?

    It's sad to see many people getting triggered over a fighting game about ungulates.

    If they end up on his channel, it could be a bit, since he typically has someone else (Hawke) do Hype & Rage Compilations for him. I doubt TFH will be getting one of those, though.

    As for YoVideoGames, Simmons handles shifting stuff over to YouTube a few videos at a time (sometimes in parts), but he only does it a stream at a time so it'll take him a bit to catch up to the TFH stream.

    Well, honestly in recent days, those have been few and far between when it comes to the more positive reception and some people who get legitimately surprised that a game like this that many considered to be a joke actually turned out to be a quality product.

    So, the question is now how hard would it be to get a Pom skin where all the dogs look like Benny?

    Pom needs a ton of palettes, because mean ol' crowdfund backers barely gave her any. I've already asked them to make a Max & Benny skin so HERE'S HOPING.

    They are not Youtubers but IGN posted a bit of gameplay.

    Yeah I saw that IGN gave the game some promotion earlier. Thought that was pretty cool. Hopefully they'll post some more, hopefully in Paprika or Tianhuo's stages so people can hear one of the more intense stage themes, haha.

    I'm amazed they didn't intentionally suck at the game to make it seem bad, IGN is notorious for stuff like that and hasn't gotten any better with time. It'd be kinda cool to get a text review from them too, but I fear they'd spend most of it discussing the game's origins as opposed to the game itself.

    YoVideogames has begun uploading the non-Nappy parts of their TFH stream now! Here's Part 1, so more parts to come over the next few days. I won't bother posting them in this thread or anything, y'all know where to go.

    Aaaand here's another set of reasonably popular YouTubers hitting up TFH... It's Friends Without Benefits.



    Don't, uh, expect any high level play here. ;3 And the comments are a bit cancerous.

    Still hoping Alpharad plays it

    Those comments weren't nearly as bad as I was thinking they would be. As for some of them, they were expected. After all, you know what kind of audience people like Weegee attracts.

    Yeah, pretty much, though naturally they're being stupid and equating the game to Lawyer Friendly Equines, despite mentioning the C&D. As a result, someone in the comments literally refers to the characters as "pony OC designs." It's like, come on, guys.

    Yeah, that has started to annoy me to no end as well. Yes, the game started as a fangame and yes, the character design is similar but TFH is now something original, unrelated to LFE. Same as those people who are unreasonably averse to lawyer friendly equines and refuse to give this game a chance because it is tangentially related to the series.

    Looks like the game is getting the promotion it deserves. I still kinda want to know how well it has sold so far, since I would very much like to see this become a success.

    Ninkendo, a fairly popular Smash YouTuber, played TFH in a video along with a couple of bad games but was pleasantly surprised with it

    (notes something Ninkendo said) Interesting...perhaps if some of us pool our money to buy a bunch of copies, we can send them as rewrapped 'gifts' to the various other Let's Players who are yet unaware of TFH's existence. Like TFS, for example.

    I see Ninkendo is enjoying the game's in-progress AI there. Mwaha. Glad he liked it though.

    This isn't a YouTuber, but I figure I might as well link it here for you guys, but Destructoid has an Early Access Review up for the game, and it's very positive: Early Access Review: Them's Fightin' Herds
