Lets play: Let's Play!

Postby Crile » Sat May 24, 2008 12:51 am

hey, so I don't know about you guys, but sometimes there are games that I think are really interesting, but I know I'll never buy it or I just don't want to play it for some reason. Well, on the SomethingAwful forums, there's a subforum known as Let's Play! where people post threads in which they play a certain game, hopefully to completion, for the enjoyment of their loving audiences. Sometimes they're video, but for RPGs they're usually screenshots and only boss battles are recorded. Sometimes they're good, sometimes they're bad, but usually they're pretty interesting.

SO WHAT? well, they're good to watch if you find yourself bored for one reason or another, or if you enjoy watching other people play games, or (like me) you want to check out the prequels to games that you want to play so you know what's going on! well um, yeah, Just thought I'd share a few that I thought were interesting. I've only just been introduced to the concept in the past few months so I haven't had opportunity (or time) to watch a lot of videos. Sometimes I'll watch the first video of a LP and decide it's crap and not continue. I'll only post the first few videos of a game here, and if there's interest I can link to the rest of them. I think the threads are only available to people that have a SA account (it costs $9.99 to get an account, and mine was an unexpected gift so no I didn't pay =P) so I don't know how else to do this lol.

SO YEAH! let's do this:

Raocow: Yoshi's Island ROM Hack
kay so, this guy raocow is playing a ROM hack of Yoshi's Island, which is just a custom version made by someone with too much time on their hands. Raocow is supremely hilarious and I have thoroughly enjoyed the few videos I've watched of his. Here are the videos from the first world of the game:

AccountingNightmare: Devil May Cry
This one is this Australian chick named AccountingNightmare. SHE SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE CASSI IF SHE WERE AUSTRALIAN. She does a runthrough of Devil May Cry on the hardest difficulty and kicks the game's ass. I was terrible at this game so it's cool to see someone who's actually good at it play. These videos are actually compiled somewhere that should be accessible to non SA members, but she originally did it for SA.

BlackbeltBobman: Metroid Prime series (requires Divx web player)
This is actually my friend Bob. We were in the same Japanese class for like 2 years and he's pretty crazy. His commentary is kinda weird at points but he's pretty informative about the game, which is good. While I would advise that you actually play the metroid prime series, these might be worth a watch. I'll put the prime 1 vids up first, but if you'd rather watch 2 or 3 they exist too. It's kinda rough at first, but once he starts playing it gets good.

um, yeah. Enjoy, if you're into this kind of thing.
