NOT the End of HPAW

Category: HPAW,News

Due to overwhelming  community support we have decided to continue doing HPAW for the time being. Thank you so much to our loyal fans. Spread the word and help HPAW grow!

Well it has been a long road, but as with all road they must end. So too must HPAW with very viewership and the amount of time and effort that goes in to making videos is not worth it. We are sorry about this, but this is just what makes the most sense to do.

    I have been watching HPAW for years, since the chromehounds episode. It has become a part of my childhood and i am very fond of it. Whenever i feel down i look for the perfect HPAW episode to make me better. I remember getting back from school and looking forward to a new resi 4 marathon episode. If you ever read this Mempf, i would like to thank you for the memories and the amount of time and effort you put into these videos, the quality of the audio, video, the planning and commentary were always great. Your podcast is very dear to me. I will miss it. I suppose its quite fitting that now my childhood is over, (as im going to university in a month)so is my favourite webcast. I wish you and the rest of the cast (teclis, world etc) all the best in the future. There will always atleast be one HPAW fan. All the best – sean murden (abadmedic)

    I remember when I first came across this webcast on accident during the Shiverinng Isles Marathon. Later on, I came across the website and got hooked on the site with the Metroid Prime Unofficial Marathon. I’ve had so many good memories that distracted me after a tough day at work. I’ll miss this site and wish you the best of luck.

    I guess all good things must come to an end. ive loved this podcast ever since i came upon it. u guys made me laugh and actually start widening my view for games to play. the videos always made me feel happy when iwas down and i will miss this site if the decision comes to closing this site down. i will also miss hearing the jokes you guys always come up with. good luck with all of your future endeavors and have a fun kickass life.

    Thank you for all the laughs and inspiration you’ve given me these past six years. No matter how depressed or miserable I’ve been, I could always pick a marathon and forget about the world for a few hours. I remember during freshman year I would bring my laptop to school and sit in my spanish classroom during lunch and watch an episode of whatever marathon me and my friends picked. Even though I don’t watch ya’ll as avidly as I used to, I still find myself quoting World and recommending your marathons to my friends. Your WiiQuest Documentary has even inspired me and my friend to do the same thing for when Skyrim comes out. Thank you HPAW, thank you for allowing me and so many others to join you in ya’lls journey. The world is a little brighter because of you. And I do hope you keep the website up, I can’t imagine not being able to go back and rewatching your Resident Evil 4 marathon. Thank you again, all of you 🙂

    I can’t remember when i started watching you guys, but i know know it has been a long time. I know the cast isn’t as energetic as the projects years ago but it was, and still is, fun to watch old and new. I don’t want to see the site or HPAW go, but i know you and the cast have lives so we as viewers and fans will respect that. I hope that if you have free time, you can hop on a stream and play around a bit, y’know? 🙂 It’s been a great run, thanks for the memories dude

    Tacoman out 😀

    Oh man, didn’t see this one coming.

    I’ve been following you since the beginning when you did the Oblivion marathon on Gamespot. Ever since then i’ve been coming to the site almost daily to check if there’s something new posted. I’m sad to hear it’s over but i do understand why and wish you all the best in future. Thank you for providing us awesome episodes and marathons all these years. Always be Awesome 😀

    Thank you to everyone who commented, it is because of you that we can’t end HPAW yet. It’s rare to find such well thought out comments.

    That’s great, it would have been really sad to see HPAW go.

    Thank goodness HPAW isn’t leaving. When I read this last night, I was ready to cry since HPAW influenced me to buy many of the games I have. I am so releived that this isn’t the end to my favorit site. So excited to see your next project.

    Thank GOD
    If HPAW was not around i would go crazy… or at least have a couple days were im inconsolable.

    Thank God your not finishing yet. I’ve been hooked ever since I first stumbled across your Shivering Isles Marathon all those years ago and have eagerly gone to the site every day since looking for new videos. I hope you guys continue for a long time yet, LONG LIVE HPAW!!!!!!

    It’s always going to be worth it to keep going…as long as HPAW keeps putting out videos, I’ll keep watching them, and I know that quite a few people agree with me here. If you can somehow advertise that you’ll be doing a Skyrim marathon, you’ll get thousands if not tens of thousands of views, and now that your Youtube page is up and running again, it’ll be sure to attract people.

    ive been watching your videos since day 1 dont leave us yet you guys rock on

  14. Tennisfan September 4th, 2011 5:00 PM

    You guys rock…im so happy that you guys are sticking around! maybe if it saves you time you shouldnt worry so much about the quality…i mean your 480p looks AMAZING, seriously!

    I will always love your RE4, RE5, and GTA 4 marathons!

    I know I’m a bit late on the bandwagon, but I must say when I first read the initial post I was shocked. I found you guys back when I was in college and you’ve stuck with me ever since. Whenever I was having a horrible day at work, I would put on a marathon and have your comments piping through my head (I have most of the episodes memorized by now so a lot of the times i have the video going by memory). When my company upped our security and blocked your site, I started downloading the episodes and putting whatever I could on my iPod. I know I’m not big on posting in forums or going into chats, but I do check this website at least 5-6 times a week looking for new stuff and watching the old. There really is no replacing HPAW and I’ve truly appreciated all the work you’ve put in to this. Thank you for keeping it going and for keeping my sanity grounded when I’m ready to freak out at work 🙂

    its really great that is not the end of HPAW, sure i will spread the word to help you guys grow up, thanks to you i decided to do some commentary gameplay and Walkthrough, im not that great yet but i love to do it just like you dudes

    I know, i’m extremely late to the party, but as long as we’re all reminiscing. I remember being in middle school and looking up re4 videos on youtube because that was my addiction at the time, and eventually I came across your marathon. I don’t think I had seen anything so hilarious in all my life at that point. I’m glad to hear that there’s still going to be videos.

    P.S. I’ve been busy for a long ass time, so I haven’t been able to keep up with HPAW as much as I used to, but hopefully now I be more regular with it 😛
