I’ve finally finished a new Sam & Max episode and it’s now fully released on YouTube (as our release schedule has been focusing on Call of Cthulhu and Life is Strange for a while) from Beyond Space and Time. This time it’s Night of the Raving Dead – which was very fun, like all Sam & Max games.
That’s all for now, until next time, which will be Chariots of the Dogs from Sam & Max. XXX
So, we’re adding a new game to our Let’s Play roster – with Dontnod’s Life is Strange. We were both very interested in this game when we heard who the developer is – 2013’s Remember Me by the same dev was flawed but worth playing. It had a rich and vibrant world and story, as well as a strong female lead, mostly held back by repetitive gameplay that focused too much on combat. Life is Strange takes a different approach with the same good points – it’s an interesting world with a female lead, and no combat. We’ll see how it goes. For now, after the cut is the first set of episodes.
Another belated set of Final Fantasy Let’s Play Videos, and possibly the last set from Final Fantasy for a while as it’s on a little break while we get through Call of Cthulhu. Here’s episodes 36 to 42.
So, we’re now doing another horror Let’s Play, the wonderful and sadly much under-rated Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth. These days, because it doesn’t run ideally on modern hardware, it’s difficult to find videos of this game looking like it should, or without people complaining that it’s “buggy”.
As an aside, we’re running the game on a machine we’ve specifically kept for Call of Cthulhu – it’s an older Windows PC, running XP, with an old Nvidia graphics card. Otherwise some of the problems you can have are: the rain doesn’t render correctly, the skybox doesn’t render at all, and portions of the game that require the skybox later on to work aren’t playable. There may be more minor problems, but these are the big noticable ones.
