Yay!

Could someone recommend me some good Let's Plays (and by good I mean FUNNY)? More specifically, similar to Tobuscus's games channel?
Go play Kentucky Route Zero. Now.
Always curious
I'd recommend this web original [1] called Saga of Soul. It was made by a troper and honestly needs more love. An interesting take on the magical girl and a pretty good piece of original fiction. Tropes page

The direct use of force is such a poor solution to any problem, it is generally employed only by small children and large nations.
Any good creepypasta, or pasta-esque stories floating around?

Have you looked at the SCP Foundation? Their stuff ranges from moderately okay to GOD WHY GOD WHY GOD WHY GOD WHY

Ok I don't post here that often but let me recommend my THE NICK OF TIME (and other abrasions) stories. They're tales of paranormal romance for people that couldn't get dates in high school...

Disney vs Non-Disney Villains.

The first round is here, though it's long enough that it's difficult to keep track of all of the factions.
So much to do and it's all a waste of time.
I'd like to share my new obsession with you. note 

Check out The Autobiography of Jane Eyre, inspired by The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. It's a Setting Update vlog based on Jane Eyre.

I was on the fence at the beginning as Jane is a quite unlikely character to be re-imagined as a modern day vlogger, but it actually works. It has vloggy and home-made feel, but compared to actual fan-made setting update vlogs, you realize this is professional.

The beginning was just setting the mood, but it has got really good. They are going with the mystery of the house and the ghost-thing. Hard to imagine how they plan to translate the big twist, but it looks promising. There are some Pragmatic Adaptation changes which some fans don't like, but they actually might turn out to be Chekhov's Gun.

If you are a bonnet drama geek like myself and if you like setting updates of classic literature, or interesting web series, check it out. Episode 1 - "This is me (an Introduction)".

Back in the game.
So I have a thing for British, Australian, and mid-Atlantic accents, not really AMSR or finding it hot but just sort of a Most Wonderful Sound thing, and I like series that discuss, play, or review video games.

The problem is both Zero Punctuation and TotalBiscuit get too ranty for me at times.

Any chilled-out Commonwealth reviewers or Let's Players I should watch?

Not a game, but rather a blog, http://www.madeofwynn.net is about a medievalist with too much free time on her hands and started blogging. It has some very refresing insights in what the middle ages are, how medieval theology works, books are reviewed as well as a series about for what the word 'medieval' should and should not be used. And then there's just the rest. Go read it, it's fun.

Be not afraid...
Check out The Sick Land, the blog defintelty tells a very compelly cosmic horror story with rather gripping phycological horror and of coares course generouse amounts of squick. http://thesickland.blogspot.com/2013/09/drawings.html (It's about an area of land where things are constantly getting fucked up by an invisible field of Fuck-uppery)

Okay, I'm looking for a format that while I'm not entirely sure what I want, I know the basics, and I can't seem to even describe those to Google.

I was watching Star Trek, thinking about how they have a rather broad range of tone and can do some really deep drama one week and something lighter but not broad comedy the next, and got the idea to do some sort of web-oriented drama series in short episodes.

How short? Under fifteen minutes, preferably under ten. My gut says seven minutes is a nice length for story telling, but I have no idea how accurate that is. The next step is to watch some series with that basic format to get an idea of what kind of rhythm such a story has.

Now, half-hour dramas are rare enough on television, and I could probably find anthologies or serials (chockablock with cliffhangers) out there, but I'm sure somewhere out there someone's doing a super-short drama on the web. However, when I take the idea to Google, the best I can do are searches like "drama series under ten minutes", and it gives me a puzzled look and starts offering me "Ten minute stage dramas" and "Six Feet Under (TV Series)".

Beyond the basic idea of "webisode drama", I don't think I have many definite ideas of what I want, but I have some ideas of what I don't want. I'm not specifically out for anything as specific as "sci-fi", or "crime drama", but I want an overall tone similar to Star Trek: TNG or Castle. The closest thing I can think of to what I'm looking for is Childrens Hospital, but that's not a drama, it's a spoof of medical soap opera. Even if you dump the comedy, it's too melodramatic for what I'm looking for. Also the only serious web dramas I can think of aren't so much drama as horror.

I may be getting too picky about this, since I ought to be able to extract a plot rhythm from just about anything that tells an ongoing but episodic story in the time frame I'm looking for. So it shouldn't matter that if I were to move on to creating my own series in this format, it'd probably be either Magical Realism or the sci-fi equivalent, or just pure realism.

Any ideas in the world of the web? I crossposted a whole lot, but then decided to just leave this one and General Recs.

It occurs to me that The Guild is rather similar to what I'm looking for. It's a comedy, but it's character- and plot-driven. How many seasons in am I? I forget.

Hitman 101 came up once I figured out how to explain it to Google, but it looks like it's a bit too serialized. I'll give it a closer look later.

Also putting a pin in Electric City. It's postapocalyptic, but I didn't find in my brief lookup whether or not it's a comedy.
Uh, I hope this thread is not as dead as it seems.

Does anyone here knows a good vlog/web series about American comic books and the comic industry?

I enjoy Likara's Atop the 4th Wall and Moviebob's Comics are Weird, but neither of them are actually actually what I look for. AT 4 W is specifically about only bad comics, and only sometimes Linkara stops to discuss anything else. And Comics are Weird is just an occasional side show of a series that is mostly about movies.

PS:I am not looking for a review show, but I am fine with those too. I would prefer something that focus less on specific comic issues, though, and gave a broader view.

Some folks may be interested in checking out Symbiote, it's a science-fiction web-serial and it's rather decent. Four and more than a half 'books' are out at this time. Probably fulfills a bunch of transhumanism tropes before more than a few chapters in.
