Let's Play! (formerly "Let's Play Amnesia: The Dark Descent")
« on: November 15, 2012, 11:52:58 PM »
Come one, come all, and watch me play my way through my arsenal of computer games, ranging from Indie software from lesser-known developers to full-blown AAA titles, and hopefully provide some intelligent and entertaining commentary along the way! Comments, concerns, criticisms and suggestions are always welcome! Let me know what games you would like to see and I'll certainly consider them (though bear in mind that I'm terrible at RTS games, so you likely won't see many of those).

Hope you enjoy! :)

(the original post for Amnesia: The Dark Descent follows)

So after abysmally failing to get Mask of Eternity working properly, I've decided to move on and start recording again. A friend of mine who discovered my channel has been asking me to do Amnesia, so.....
Honestly, I bought this game on a whim during a Steam sale; I wanted to support the devs but didn't think I would ever actually play it because I don't really care for scary stuff. But over the past few years I've been trying new things, so I figured I'd give this a go.

Whether this was a good decision or not remains to be seen, though. :P But at any rate, if anyone chooses to watch, I do hope you enjoy! :)

I feel I should mention that Amnesia will likely have swearing in it; not from me, but from the game itself. I can't recall whether I've heard any yet or not, but just be aware that it's a very real possibility, considering the nature of the game.

So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Sorry. :( I'm not happy about it, but I tried everything I could. I'll give it another go later, though.

New episode up! Enjoy! :)

Episode 2: Acidic Relations

(Posted on: November 24, 2012, 11:14:48 PM)


Episode 3 is here! Gotta hand it to the devs of this game. They really know how to do this; I feel compelled to press forward and finish even when I'm scared out of my mind.

(Posted on: November 29, 2012, 05:47:55 AM)


Episode 4, recorded on location!

Er, well, at a location.

That is, a location that is not my bedroom.

:P

(Posted on: December 03, 2012, 05:22:50 AM)


Episode 5! Inching ever closer to a resolution. I'm kind of curious about how long this game is, because I feel like I'm moving at an incredibly slow pace. But then, I guess horror games are supposed to be like that, to a certain extent.

(Posted on: December 07, 2012, 05:09:11 AM)


Episode 6 is up (assuming anyone is actually following along, lol). Some nicely horrifying moments in this one. I'm starting to get the feeling that I'm pretty close to the end now. But we'll see.

(Posted on: December 14, 2012, 06:02:44 PM)


Episode 7 is live!

(Posted on: December 23, 2012, 06:27:29 PM)


Episode 8 is up now!

(Posted on: December 26, 2012, 10:52:01 PM)


Somehow I completely forgot to post episode 9, so here it is, along with episode 10. :)
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here!

Episode 11 is live!

So this thread has been pretty quiet, which is fine, but I'm curious as to whether anyone is actually watching or not. The only reason I ask is because I plan to keep on making LPs, but I don't want to keep cluttering up the forums with threads about them if no one cares. :)

I got a pretty good response to my King's Quest LPs, but considering the demographic of this place, that wasn't really surprising. Plus, I was a lot more active back then as well.

Anyway, if no one is really following, I'll probably just stop making the threads after this one, at least until I do another adventure game. But if anyone wants me to continue, I will. I just didn't want Katie et. al. getting mad at me for a bunch of threads in which I'm the only poster, lol.

I'm planning on playing the game when I have a spare moment, so I'm avoiding spoilers. I do like LPs though! Especially the text+screenshot types since I'm half deaf.

Yeah, that's the only bad thing about LPs, they pretty much spoil everything. But I find them entertaining for things I've already played or have no intention of playing.
Too bad YouTube's captioning system doesn't seem to be very good yet. I just tried it on one of my videos and it was pretty nonsensical.

I think I'll check it out when it's done. What happened to your playlists though?! They were so helpful back when I started watching you a few months ago, and now they're just... gone! I don't want to slog through 200+ videos just so I can watch a specific video!

Um...I never made any playlists, actually; at least not that I recall. I remember thinking about it, but I never actually put the time into it. At any rate, I'll look into that over the weekend. :)

Ah, yes, work; that's where I'm off to now. Fun, fun, lol.

And Episode 14, the finale, is up!

That was quite the interesting experience. If you're looking for a game to get your blood going, that will certainly do it for you.

So as for what I'm going to do next: I gave this a lot of thought, and decided to go for something more lighthearted this time, considering Amnesia laid on the drama pretty thick. Therefore, my next project is going to be Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. I've played both Lego Star Wars and LSW II: The Original Trilogy, but The Complete Saga, which I have not played, combines both games and, so I've been told, adds content and updates the sections from LSW I with the improved graphics, controls and gameplay from the second game. So it won't be completely blind, but hopefully there will be some entertaining surprises along the way all the same.

Considering the size of this game, I'm expecting it to take decidedly longer than anything I've done so far, but I'm looking forward to it. If all goes well, the first part should go up by Wednesday.

Also, considering that my King's Quest LPs have been relocated to The Silver Lining's Special Features section, I've decided to repurpose this thread a bit; going forward, I will continue to post all of my LPs in this thread. The original post will likely undergo a little redecorating to support this, and, as has been requested, playlists are being created. Hopefully consolidation will work out better for everyone.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed Amnesia, and that you'll join me on my next adventure!

And no, I haven't yet given up on Mask of Eternity. :)

Glad to hear it! I haven't played the Harry Potter ones yet, although I did grab both of them from a Steam sale recently. I've been pretty impressed by those Lego games, and I'm excited to get into more of them.

For those interested, playlists are now available for KQ1-7 and Amnesia. Henceforth, I'll be making and updating them as I go along.

Hopefully, I will get the first episode of Lego Star Wars Saga up this weekend. Stay tuned! :)

It is indeed. I'm hoping it won't be too slow...I recorded some last night and had forgotten how it can seem to drag a bit when you have to run around collecting studs so much. We'll see. :)
