I’ve been playing a lot of Nintendo games. Everything from Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Mario 3D World on the WiiU to Donkey Kong Country Returns and Pokemon on the 3DS. I’m buying up all the amiibos that I care to have and even trying to preorder a selectfew that haven’t come out yet. In fact I just preordered the Monster Hunter 4 Special Edition 3DS XL that’s set to come out on February 13th.
Damn it Nintendo. It seems like every time I start to feel like you guys are the bee’s knees you go and do something stupid to mess it up. #backwards #outoftouch
So I’ve been spending a LOOOT of time playing Skyrim again. So far I’ve got ~95 mods or so installed including quite a few graphics, ENB, and immersion mods. I think I’m going to start doing a little playthrough on Youtube but with a twist. Anyway, here a little peak at what it looks like in game:
Man tracking down a copy of the Guild Wars Trilogy and expansion was waaay harder than it should have been. Yeah I could have gotten them on steam but steam wants ~$50 for both. There’s no way in hell I’m paying nearly full price for a game that’s almost 9 years old. You would think that I would be able to find some site to buy the keys for them … but nearly all the normal key sites don’t have them in stock. They’ll have each campaign – Prophecies, Nightfall, and Factions + expansion separately but not the combined pack. If you buy each separately you would end up paying ~$60! Just crazy …
Don’t worry about the German site – it’s legit. I got my keys in a couple of minutes through email and paid through paypal. Now … if Arenanet would fix their damn account creation I would be a happy camper. I spent an hour and a half just trying to create a Guild Wars 1 account and log in. You see you have to have a login with Guild Wars, the NCsoft store (not the same), and, if you own GW2, GW2 (also not the same). That’s right … THREE separate accounts and logins. It’s just so backwards I don’t even …
Now I can at least earn rewards for GW2 while playing Guild Wars. Do you guys still play? If so we should do a stream party or something.
This one took a while to do … I originally recorded 18 minutes of audio for this review and then jump cut it down to 12. In doing so I realized one thing: I am muuuch more eloquent when I jump cut. >.> You may not be able to tell but I actually had to zoom in and slightly rotate my camera footage in premiere. Turns out that recording a review on what amounts to a piece of wood on an ironing board doesn’t give you much wiggle room to see the whole product. All in all I think this turned out pretty good. I think I’m going to get a few things to change my review setup in the future. I’m looking at getting a dedicated review table and a DSLR camera as the first things on the list.
Gotta say that I love this keyboard. When I’m at work using my crappy dell keyboard I find myself missing the smooth tactile feel of the 710+. I also underplayed how much I beat the hell out of my Logitech keyboard … and it still works flawlessly. I don’t much use the G keys when gaming but I do use them a lot for video and audio recording.
Anyway, What do you guys think of this style of review?
So this is the last episode of Terraria: Capture the Flag I recorded with Hero, Matt, and Emma. I don’t know about the rest of the people, but I had a blasty blast making and creating the underground dungeon map. It has so many little traps in it from spiky ball plates to poison arrow darts. You have to be really careful you don’t step on the pressure plates or else that route may be cut off for you for a good while until the spiky ball goes away. I also like how big the arena is as it allows you to have a lot more options for sneaking around people. The honey in the middle serves as a perfect flag passing area due to all the honey slowing down pursuers.
I really need to do more Terraria stuff … perhaps a new LP is in my future? 😀
So the last time I livestreamed I tried something a little different. I recorded a “live” version of my One Shots series for the game Sunless Sea. Now some of you may have noticed that the One Shots series has shifted from more of a “what I’m playing” to an edited (and scripted) impressions/review show. Since Sunless Sea is so heavily text based and playthoughs can easily last hours if not days, I decided I would go ahead and play through one life and then upload it to youtube. Overall I think that the format worked out ok but I may tweak it in the future. The Sunless Sea video is over an hour long so I hope that doesn’t scare too many people away. What do you guys think?
Thanks again for Toof for getting me a copy of Sunless Sea! <3<3<3
So this was one of the best trolls I’ve seen on a stream. Before I got sick last week I had been playing a lot of age of empires. While each game isn’t nearly as long as Civ 5 they can still last several hours … especially when I’m casually messing around. Well after about 1.5 hours of a little bit of cheatsydoodle someone in chat trolled me hard. It had been years since I had last played Age of Empires and I could only remember two of the cheat codes: How do you turn this on and furious the monkey boy. Well the chat got me to put in whimpywhimpywhimpy which I though would shrink my units ….
Nope. It doesn’t shrink your units. It doesn’t shrink them at all!
So I may have broken Guild Wars 2 the other day on stream. Turns out that some of the diving goggles around the game allow you to do dive tricks as you jump off into the water. This time I jumped off, did a cannonball …. and then the game broke. Gotta say that glitch was hilarious up until I leveled and it stopped. According to Reddit it’s possible to do this with the “twirl” trick as well but I haven’t been able to reproduce the glitch since. Just imagine … an entire herd of forever spinning Nords … *shudder*
So I may or may not be the worst player NA when it comes to Spelunky. I don’t know what it is but I can be given the most carry items ever and still not make it very far. I guess I just need to play more.
So Spelunky has returned to my channel and what better way to get it there than with a Failfish Daily Challenge! I think these will become a regular on my channel. Not exactly every day but definitely a couple each week. Too bad I’m horrible at the Spelunky remake …
