I am surprised I did not post on this before, and I did I do not remember/search (strangely) did not pick it up.
As a bit of some background knowledge to help some understand this post, a Let’s Play (abbreviated LP). For those who do not know what that means, an LP is where someone (or a few people) plays a video game (usually the entire thing) while recording their screen. They also have a microphone (or two) connected and they give commentary as they play the game. This last part is what distinguishes LP’s from Walkthroughs, which are only recordings. Let’s Plays come in two types: normal, which is the more traditional type, and blind, meaning the player(s) have not played this game before, either in months or years past or before they started recording.
Back in July of this year, I did my very first LP. I played a game known as OpenBlox, a self-described open-source remake of ROBLOX, a popular but usually bad children’s online game where you can build stuff and write modified LUA script to make it do stuff. Compared to OpenBlox, however, ROBLOX looked a good game. Thus my first LP was of a bad game that you never need to play (seriously, never play it. An unavoidable dependency it downloads wrecks the System PATH). Every so often, even last week people talk about it. It was that bad. Here is the teaser video of it and link to the playlist to watch it… if you dare. You can safely skip Part 1. I am giving an introduction and background in it, does not contain gameplay, and is rather boring.
Four months later (November 14, last Thursday, actually), I did my second LP with a surprise second player named rioforce (whom you know by now is my brother). I had been saying that week I was going to do it, but I did not say what it was until I published the teaser.
With that trailer, I confirmed a suspicion some may have had not never voiced: I was playing another bad game, this time one called BIOINCLE UNIVERSE: THE BOHROK’S REVENGE. I was introduced to this game by jamesster as an unbeatable game, with a challenge to play it and attempt to beat it. 1.5 hours later we finished the game, beating the boss and writing another chapter in my LP’ing history. If it had not been for rioforce, this thing may have ended up in the digital garbage dump, he really helped liven up the entire night. Thanks rio! 😀
We are not sure if the creator intentionally made a troll game or thought this was good. If the latter, yikes. If the former, then job well done. Anyway you look at it, it is a bad game the end.
There you have it, my first two Let’s Plays! Watch them and prepare to laugh, cry, and flat out be amused. I had fun playing them, and hopefully you will enjoy the fun with us. 🙂
If you are wondering when I will do another one, don’t hold your breath. It was four months before I did this newest one. Don’t attempt to suggest games for me to play, I will ignore them. ;P However, if/when I do another one, I already have a few games in mind.
