what Jeff and Adam think of your late-game expansion.
Life's A Glitch TV
(commonly abbreviated as LAGTV) is a YouTube
channel hosted by two Canadian guysnote
named Adam (NovaWar) and Jeff (MaximusBlack). They have done some Let's Plays
for Resident Evil 5
, Portal 2
and Left 4 Dead 2
, although they are mostly known for their StarCraft II
commentary series called "When Cheese Fails 101", which was retooled for a season "Will Cheese Fail?" and has since returned to the "When Cheese Fails" format.
Though which player will win is not necessarily known because of the existence of double cheeses.
Unlike their contemporaries such as Day Nine
, Husky Starcraft
, and TotalBiscuit
, who cast games from the level of Tournament Play
, LAGTV casts fan-submitted replays of mid- to high-level Ladder games
submitted by their fans, in an attempt to analyze in-depth what happens when cheese tactics
fail. The games are typically cast blind, with neither NovaWar nor MaximusBlack knowing what is going to happen. While the series is primarily intended for entertainment, Adam and Jeff are also excellent commentators
, dissecting in detail what each player is doing right and wrong. Players who want to learn how to defend against cheese—or perpetrate it!—should consider this show required reading.
LAGTV also casts more traditional 1v1 Ladder games, typically introduced as "Normal-Ass Normal Games" to keep them separate from When Cheese Fails 101 proper. They have additionally produced a series called "NovaWar Says," in which Jeff has to play 2v2 StarCraft
games under constraints chosen by Adam. Their second channel, LAGTV2
, was originally slated for just Minecraft gameplay videos and has since panned out into a Lets Play channel of various games and their "Dear LAGTV" series.
MaximusBlack and NovaWar are known for their insightful analysis, upbeat personality
, natural chemistry
and poop jokes
. Lots of poop jokes.
MaximusBlack was crowned King Of The Web for the period of June 1 - June 15 2012.Head to their website for more.Needs Wiki Magic Love
