Superandrd is a little known Let's Player. Starting his first LP May 16th, 2011. He
mostly known for playing Pokemon games. Along with LP's he has done multiple
covers of songs on his drum set.
Superandrd (otherwise known as "Ryan"), is an 18 year old from western Massachusetts. He usually will upload two or so videos a day, depending on the length of the videos. Or if he has to get rid of some files to make room on his computer for other stuff.
Pokemon Snakewood Episode 30 marks the first main series video to be in HD format. This is due to him getting a new desktop copmuter (since the very first LP he did he had been using his laptop). All the videos he does now will be HD, the first being "Test.mp4", where tested FRAPS and Sony Vegas to see what setting would be ideal
Let's Play StyleEdit
Generally pretty relaxed, he will usually talk about little things he has found either annoying/irritable or enjoyable about the game he is playing. Or he will just ramble on about his thoughts. He uses a very "in the moment" type of flow for his commentary. More often than not, he will use his knowledge of Pokemon to aide him in battle, spouting nonsensicle facts.
He believes that swearing is no problem, and swears at almost every line of dialogue in the game. Though he aspires to have at least one episode of his videos to have not a single swear (he does not count "damn" as a swear).
He generally does not refer to his LP's as a "Walkthrough", more of "HERE, LET ME SHOW YOU THIS GAME AS I TALK OVER IT". However, as stated before, in the case of Pokemon games he will have snippets of information strewn throughout the video.
-Legend Of Zelda: The MInish Cap (ended in a glitch)
-Pokemon Snakewood (ended in a glitch)
-F.E.A.R. (stated he did not have the skill to complete the game)
Ryan used to utilize a camcorder to capture his audio, but has since upgraded to a Shure PG58. In late November he upgraded again to a much more sophisticated setup for recording commentary AND drum covers. He now uses an MXL 990 condenser mic hooked up to a Presonuns Audiobox interface for his commentary. He also uses the built-in recorder on the Visualboyadvance to capture his video for Pokemon games. For other games he uses FRAPS.

Ryan has quite a few drum covers up on his channel. He has been playing for 4 years as of January 2012. The first songs he covered were HIM songs but he has now expanded out into other genres and artists. His most known video is in fact a drum cover, so far amassing over 13,000 views. While the video has many views, it also has many dislikes as it was very inconsistent (Ryan has stated that he feels this was one of the lesser quality covers he has done). Ryan gained some brief popularity when he posted a cover of "Jumper: The Musical " (Todd Bryanton), only a few days after the original Tom Ska videowas posted. He gained ~700 views in one day for the video, the fastest any of his videos has grown.
Briefly, Ryan tried using a microphone and laptop to record his covers, however due to his recording the drum audio and the video of himself playing at seperate times, the two tracks would not always match up. He only used this technieque for a few videos before abondoning it.
Ryan's equipment includes Paiste, Zildjian, and Wuhan cymbals. He uses Remo heads for his 1968 Ludwig drums.
