Let's Play King's Quest
« on: March 01, 2010, 10:58:32 AM »
For those who just want something King's Quest, I am currently doing a let's play of the king's quest collection I am currently on VII and am working on getting MoE to work on my Win 7 computer. Since this a community of King's Quest fan, I thought I would share my videos with you.

We had just been talking about Let's Plays on the forums before all of this BS happened. It's nice to see a playthrough of the VGA remakes. Not that I don't like the originals, I do, but I like the remakes as well.

We'd also been discussing how different people have different styles of Let's Plays that they liked. I was like "The less talking the better!" but I'm a crotchety old man (:P) and at least your talking is well timed to not drown out the game's dialogue and things -- that absolutely drives me nuts. I was watching one Let's Play and the guy just would not keep his mouth shut. I was like.... I'm not watching a game, am I? The game is a background for you to tell your stupid jokes, why are you tricking me like this??? :P

Anyways, it's a nice job overall, and I'm glad to see you've gotten so far already! :)

I want to see a playthrough (preferably without dialogue) of the Apple IIGS version of KQ3.

That sounds pretty cool. I'd like to see someone do one of MoE too though. that'd be pretty nice.

i wonder if there's any way we can get someone to do one for the NES version of kq5.

There's the first part of a non-talking KQVNES for you, Dark-Daventry!  There is a talky one too; whichever you go for, just search for "King's Quest 5 NES" on YouTube.

There's probably an MoE one around about but I never bothered to look, hahahah.  I just want to see that KQ3 one because it seems a pretty big obscurity to me (heck, after hearing the music, I made myself a KQ3 wallpaper for my laptop from the intro movie!).

I have MoE but my Win 7 is Home Premium, I am hoping to upgrade to pro nd get XP mode so I can play and Let's Play it.

I try not to talk over dialog if I can help it unless there are subtitles or text of the dialog.

I did notice and I deeply appreciated it!

There's like....three parts of a MoE playthrough on YouTube, that's the best I could find D-D. As I've never played the whole thing, it'd be nice to watch just to get the story....
Help me, Mateo360 Kenobi, you're my only hope! (Wrong franchise, I know!)

I still have to find the music from that KQ3 thing. If the forums were up, I'd get the link. Sadly, they're not.

*hugs back*

You're more than welcome, my friend!  The proviso is though, that you have to totally and utterly enjoy that music!

(Heck, you could even PLAY that music through http://virtualapple.org/ if you so chose!)

*initiates a massive group hug* I think you're right, Haids. So let's all join in on this hug and just remember the good times we had here, and hope for a better and brighter future. We pulled through this once, and we'll pull through it again!

I like group hugs, and I love the unity this community (no rhyme intended) has, with exception to one certain traitor who'd better have the sense to never show themselves around here ever again.

On the subject of Let's Plays, Hercrabbiness (Where did she run off to? :P) did a Let's Play of King's Quest VI. Her and her friend turned off the voice acting and did all the voices themselves, which can be pretty amusing. (I prefer her zombie voice over the real one... XD)

Going into other Sierra games, she's also done the first two both Laura Bow games.

Let's see...who else? I know there's this one dude who Let's Played Quest For Glory 1-5, all silent.

Then there's Kikoskia's Let's Play Space Quest 1 Remake. Hilarious, but all of his Let's Plays are. XD

I've seen some other Sierra LPs, but I haven't watched enough to really be able to reccomend them.

I've done LPs of KQ 1-3 (as well as SQ1), and they're not the greatest, mostly because I did them at random and thus I act kind of randomly, especially KQ3, where I had a friend guest star and we had more fun with each other than interest in playing the game.  I don't try to "act" to much in my LPs and let my words just come out, which unfortunately include a bit of profanity (which is not added for comedic effect eg AVGN style, I really am a naughty girl and swear way more often than I should in real life.  I'm working on it).

And I SUCK at voice acting seriously bad. 


I prefer commentary in LPs (which I find sort of necessary, since it differentiates a "Let's Play" from a "Let's Watch".  You can only do so much so many times in a game before it becomes just like everyone else's playthough, and commentary is what makes each one unique.

I much prefer those with commentary as well as I really just watch them to see what other people think of the game. Majority of the games I care to watch a Let's Play on I own and can just play myself, so not much point in it for me to watch a silent one.
