D&D 3.5 Book of Erotic Fantasy




Guacamelee! is a game developed by Drinkbox Studios. Released in April 2013 for the PS3 and PS Vita, it eventually saw a port on Windows in August later that year. It got very favorable reviews, even a couple of awards. The game was fun, fast paced, controled well, and generally anybody's complaint about the game itself was that it was too short. The game, if you didn't try to 100% it, only took about 3 hours to beat, but considering it's a Metroid-style game where you get upgrades hidden in nooks and crannies, it makes sense, since Metroid games are typically pretty short anyway.

I won't be playing that version. Instead, I'll be playing the most recent version of the game, Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, released in July 2014 for pretty much any system that didn't have the original Guacamalee!. Not only does it have all the DLC that was released for Guacamelee!, but it also includes entirely new areas, enemies, and even an extra boss. It bumps up the game's length from about 3 hours to about 5 hours, so it's still pretty short, but not TOO short.

I love this game, but it DOES have some issues, but none of them are really gameplay related. The background in some areas has a lot of memes and referential humor that I don't really like, and the game, despite being a bit longer, is still too short. Still though, it's a very, very good game that I have platinumed twice.

Also please post cool Lucho matches, thanks.

Characters of Interest


Juan is an agave farmer, but when his not-quite-girlfriend is kidnapped by an evil undead charreda, he rushes to rescue her... and promptly gets killed within seconds. He then puts on a mysterious luchador mask and becomes a hero to the people, beating up nerds with skeletons like Kevin Sorbo.


I'm just putting Fray Ayayay here because I think his name is funny. He's not really that important, to be honest. He does have a unique character model though!


This is El Presidente's Daughter. No, she doesn't really get a name. She's Juan's subject of affections, so when she's kidnapped by a hella rude skeleton man, he tries to save her. Her current status is, and always will be, damsel in distress.


Carlos Calaca has kidnapped El Presidente's Daughter. Are you a bad enough dude to beat up this skeleton? Well, considering he killed you without even trying, probably not, no. What's even his deal, anyway?


Tostada has the amazing importance of being the co-op player's avatar. She appears for some cutscenes but because I'm playing alone, don't get used to seeing her. What's even her deal, anyway?


Jaguar Javier is a jaguar man, trained by Uay Chivo. He's now Calaca's right-hand man furry cat. He's so tough he can destroy a bridge. How can we even compare to that?


Uay Chivo is the source of the worst jokes in this game, and also all our special moves. Apparently he used to be a big deal. Obsessed with goats.


X'Tabay has a weird name I can't pronouce. She's also some sort of weather demigod and Calaca's girlfriend. Current status: Haha double entendres.


The Alebrije is a big demon cat or something. Current status: Bowser'd.

Let's Lucha!

Lucha Underground

So one massive melee game at a time just wasn't enough for you?

And for the record, I 100%'ed the regular edition of this game, at least enough to get the good ending and finish most of the challenges.

Absolutely loved the regular edition of this game. One of the few I've ever 100%'ed. The combat is just so extremely satisfying and it seems like they improved it even further in this edition. Lookin forward to seein the new stuff. Also, I don't think most of the stuff in the game is memes, but are rather just references. I think they removed most of the actual memes from this edition, or so I've heard anyways. Curious to see how much its changed.

Honestly you're not missing out on much in the original game without the DLC. STCE is worth it for the extra areas and boss though.

I have no idea what the hell happened to the previous LP of this game, a weird thing happened involving an interview, then there was a huge hiatus, then sombody else was playing it for some reason, then updates stopped then *splat*.

For what its worth I'll be eager to see your take on this game.

You know what is more annoying then aged internet memes and pop culture references? Pointing out every meme and reference and then spending ten minutes bitching about each and every one.

Most of the time I wouldn't even have noticed the meme without you telling me about them. Just ignore the drat things if they bother you that much.

I would like to draw Ape's attention to this phrase. Yes, you can reference something without it being a meme.

The references/memes in this game don't bother me even a little bit, so I'm looking forward to actually getting to see the ending (with the new content as a bonus). I have the Gold edition from a Humble Bundle or something, but .

Bacter and Mzbundifund were having some issues with their other LP, but that one did seem to just vanish somewhere around the end of the game (presumably). Good thing we have a replacement!

We've already got the second episode recorded and we do it there too, but I'll be sure we regin it in for the rest of the LP.

Shame you didn't start this up on the Day of the Dead - it would have been thematic and easier for me to find pictures of the celebrations here in Austin to go along with everything. I was working on an effort post for the other LP that discussed, among other things, Liberation Theology, Our Lady of Guadalupe, and Santa Muerte.

Folk Catholicism is a hell of a thing, man. I'll have to resume working on that.

*Edit*

Took out a bit that, on a second glance, might count as boss spoilers.

I had a Pathfinder Let's Play going on a few years ago. The LP died though, and the game was abandoned not too long after that second arc was finished. If I ever get enough suckers and free time I might consider something.

Having recently discovered the shenanigans you can get into with Pathfinder (I have declared Agni Goat on far to many enemies and succeeded), I'd love to join up.

Perhaps with a half-orc monk who wears a mask and specializes in grappling.

I hate Pathfinder and most d20 systems with a passion these days, to be honest. If I were to do anything, it would likely be a Dungeon World game with a group I already know, but I have no plans to sit behind the screen anytime soon. I prefer being the player these days, but that always changes every couple of months.

Honestly? I'm good with any system that lets me have enough freedom to have some fun with the character and go with a Concept Character instead of having to shoehorn them into a game's build. Beyond that, I don't really have any requirements for a game system besides having it function (as with all systems, some duct tape will be required).

As for GMing versus playing, I feel you there. I've been told I'm actually a decent GM, but I just feel stressed when I try to be one and enjoy being a player much more. Mostly because I love having mastermind antagonists and I am HORRIBLE at using them properly without metagaming.

That is indeed what it does. After all, the viewers can pause their videos to check.

I swear I can remember what I ate for breakfast like a month ago but I can't remember literally the first 10 seconds of a video I had just edited. It's why I typically pre-watch things before doing commentary.
