TheRunawayGuys are a group of 3 popular LPers, Chuggaaconroy, ProtonJonSA, and NintendoCapriSun. Together, they do many collaborations and invitational tournaments between themselves and other guest LPers such as JoshJepson, Lucahjin, MasaeAnela, and SuperJeenius. Chuggaaconroy handles the channel.
Chuggaaconroy has collaborated with the YouTube Channel "BrainScratchComms" for a few projects which include:
He records his videos with a Black Magic capture card with component cables for many of his LP's, and edits them with Sony Vegas Pro 13. When he records standard definition game consoles, he uses a Hauppauge capture card.
He does not record farther than a resolution of 480p for most of his videos, that being the games that he is recording do not have a higher resolution than 480p. In most LP's, he uses sidebars or pop ups to display information of things that can be collected (I.E Stray Beads from Okami, the chance of finding a wild Pokémon in FireRed, Crystal, and Emerald, or the items collected in Pikmin 2). This information is helpful to those who are playing along with him during the LP.
There are some points in his videos that have events that take too long to be shown in real time, so he speeds up the video while playing some video game music, some of which have referenced a future Let's Play.
On October 1, 2011, Chuggaaconroy mentioned on his social networking site that he will begin to upload his videos in 720p, even though the video quality of the games do not exceed 480p. YouTube's compression to the video file will decrease the audio quality as compression is not as high in 720p.
Chugga has coined some memorable catchphrases. Some have come to be a staple in most of his series. Some were used in one LP, and he references them every now and then. And for a particular one, he groans every time he hears it (most of all when ProtonJon talks about it during a RunawayGuys Super Smash Bros. Brawl episode). Here is a list of every single quip his viewers have come to love and enjoy.

You think I have places to go hang outs? You think I have dates to go on? You think I have sex to have? Well, apparently, you don't know teenage boys on the internet very well."
