Death Defied.




Welcome to the Casual Let's Play thread, formerly the 2007 LP thread! Relax, chill out, and enjoy some low-effort but high-quality LP's by your friends and mine.



This thread is for people who don't want to go the extra mile to spit-shine their LP to perfection, or get caught up in editing for hours on end. If you want to post your LP just to entertain people and aren't concerned with being informative, drop it here! Did you record a whole game live or do a live stream that you think is worth saving for posterity? Chop it up into chunks and post it here! Basically: If you don't want to make a thread for your LP, this is the thread for you.





If you're asking, the answer is yes. The subforum's usual standards of quality are significantly loosened here, so if you're nervous about it or are unsure, just go for it. What do you have to lose, anyway?



There's only really one rule: Please don't debate the ethics/social effects/etc of having a casual LP thread here. If you must, do that in the Sandcastle, where LP subforum-related discussion is usually had. Also don't bother calling somebody out on what is/isn't a casual LP, nobody cares. If someone makes a bad LP then it'll be ignored and they'll stop posting. But it's hard to make a bad LP anyway so don't worry about it.

Other than that, good luck and have fun!

This is a small sampling of what can be found in this thread, in case you want a quick series to watch or want an idea of what a casual LP looks like. Entries to this list are not added automatically; I reckon at some point there will be far too much for me to keep track of on a by-post basis. Therefore, if you would like to be on this list please send me a PM or email me at cjacobssa(at)gmail.com and I will track your LP and add it here as it unfolds.

Or use the SSLP test poster as I think that helped the roguelike megathread become a bit more manageable.

Also I have that you jacobs will finally be the one to complete a Shovel Knight LP on the forums; you'd think that wouldn't be such an insurmountable task...but I've been proven wrong three times.

Dunno who they are. If others want to point them out, feel free cause the game already assumes people have played Namco vs. Capcom, Endless Frontier, Endless Frontier 2, and memorized each super niche cast's villains to fully "get" their point in the plot.

And yet somehow it sold well enough to get a sequel.

Honestly, I had to look up Juri, and I never played past Virtua Fighter 2, but Dural was always in those.

Every mashup in the Super Robot Wars vein does. Because it has to introduce everyone, get their tie-in rehash plots started AND get the games amalgamation plot started. Sometimes I'm amazed these games only need 3 prologues to do so.

For the record, you're right, the bad guys in that section were straight out of Dark Stalkers 3 (both the demon dude, and the bee girls). The things that look like Tonberries in space suits I don't have a clue.

I don't know what weirds me out more, the fact that Haken and Kaguya live in the Tinkerbell or the fact that the game went for two scenes without making a boob joke at Kaguya's expense. That is some serious restraint on the part of Banpresto.

Perspective

This is Perspective. It's a short little puzzle game from 2012 that was developed as a student project. I remember I heard about it a while back here on the forums, and it's pretty fun. It'll only take you maybe an hour to get through your first time, so we'll be seeing all of it in this one video. I'd really recommend checking it out, It's available for free right here.

http://seewithperspective.com/

This is my first project here, so this was all pretty off the cuff for me and I figured out the editing as I went. Expect lots of mumbling and some less than insightful commentary in this video. Enjoy.

We're #BADATGAMES and we're usually not very knowledgeable about what we play, but we have tons of fun doing it. We're pretty much just using YouTube as an excuse to take valuable time out of our busy schedules to sit down and play games for extended periods, under the guise of being creative.

Fingers crossed that I'm not gonna get probated for posting completed/ongoing LPs! I'm hoping to post these in chunks if it's allowed. Enjoy!

Today, Shovel Knight takes on the incredibly wealthy diver-pirate Treasure Knight, then prepares for his journey further into the second third of the Order of No Quarter's territory. Along the way, he meets a Kickstarter-based threat that will surely test his mettle.

Hey, it was a relatively entertaining showing of a game that, while interesting, doesn't have a whole lot to talk about unless you're willing to go into perspective tricks in art or somesuch, and takes half an hour to finish. I would also recommend checking it out.

Spoiler joke below.

Sadly, Wanamingo vanished after making this LP, although his posts occasionally turned up, sometimes the right way up, sometimes upside down, sometimes curved. Mods are looking into the issues

Actually, water really isn't that good at letting light true. In the sea, it's already pitch black like 50 or 100 meters down. Doesn't have much to do with density.

At the bottom of the ocean, the water is very dense. The density plus some weird chemical tricks makes it so that there's actually puddles of liquid CO2 sitting there. And there's also a whole bunch of methane ice. Both are greenhouse gases and there's a lot of it - if those escape and bubble up, we'd have a bit of a problem.

Valdis Story and Shovel Knight are the only two so far, but his... ahem, dedication to the character is perhaps a bit out of the ordinary. Also he's kind of a jerk.

We will meet all 4 of the kickstarter backer boss fights before the end of the LP. There's actually one more director for a day tier backer, but he designed an enemy type instead of a boss fight.
