By the way Games, I've been playing the HeMan: Master's of the Universe PS2 game, based on the 2002 revival. - it's pretty fun. Just got past Triclops and to level 2. I'm now riding battlecat, which is kinda neat because while in the first stage x and square both physically attack with the sword, on battlecat X becomes a claw swipe from the kitty while the sword moves entirely to the square button.

I was waiting until I beat Triclops before recommending it because he was a pain in the rear end to do but it was annoying in an appropriate way (given that in the show he had a different eye beam type for each eye)- you approach him in a massive arena with him at the centre, trying to avoid his beams, of which he has loving annoying to avoid homing shot and a normal laser blast, but when you get to the little bit in the middle where he hangs out meleeing him is way more manageable. I just kept dying during the approach and getting pissed off.

thank you, i was curious if that game was any good, but i didn't want to try it myself until i ran out of other cartoon games from licenses i actually understood

Also a little thing you may find amusing - I played Tron Evolution a few months ago, and for the boss that you knocked off the Solar Sailor at the end of the V3 video, mine broke very differently - I was having trouble countering him when his AI totally broke and he just stood there motionless as I threw my disk at him for about 3 minutes. Pretty funny.

I played it on 360 and did enjoy it. I may run through to get the rest of the collectibles some day. Also there is a Carmen Sandiego PS2 game you may enjoy, at least I dug it, called Secret of the Stolen Drums. I have a NG+ save file that I'm planning on running through because apparently for NG+ you get a different ending, although the game itself is identical as no powerups are kept from the first play. Carmen has a cute rapport with the main character, like at one point he is looking through a pair of binoculars at her while she stands on a steamship, and she is looking right back at him from her own. Old gag but a cute one. Also some of her clues have little notes to the player character, like "You're gonna need this hon..." attached to a Peruvian hat.

Also the framing device is pretty funny - starting with the main character being chewed out for abandoning his post to chase Carmen, as the other agents were sent on a wild goose chase to the wrong location, but as the game progresses the chief starts getting more and more enthralled by the story and what the main character actually did. She gradually becomes less annoyed and more impressed, which is funny.

Time for a double bill of Ace Lightning: First of all, we tackle the final Cowboy Crossroads level in:
Ace Lightning Part 10 - Cowboy Crossroad Cemetery.

Next we tackle the boss of the area, the easiest boss in the game, Dirty Rat:
Ace Lightning Part 11 - Dirty Rat boss fight.


Also, to continue what me and GASN were discussing: 1) HeMan's first battlecat level has a big problem with ledges with poor or no hit detection, and that's pretty sad, I fazed through the world way too many times. The second level in that segment seems better for that so far, but I worry it may carry across to later levels, so bear that in mind.
2) An aspect of Tron Evolution that I thought was well done was the fact that while you don't defeat Clu, being allowed to kill the Abraxas virus and destroy the big death ship at least helps the game not feel pointless - you at least accomplish something.
3) The Spiderwick Chronicles game is loving fantastic. I loved it. Tells the story better than the movie did because it fleshes out the world more with sidequests. Crap final battle, but many games have that problem and a cute sidequest opens after beating it, so gently caress it.

Ace Lightning Part 12 - Climbcrag Castle: Firemoat Fort

This is a neat introduction to the final set of normal levels - after this video we are 2 levels and 2 bosses away from completing the game!

Also, to clarify on calling the Princess enemies "transphobic" I was referring to the old dumb joke of "You thought it was a girl but lol it's a guy!" which is often the calling card of assholes who think that's how transpeople work. I don't think the devs were intending it to come off the way they did, but similarly to the same joke in Toy Story 3 it is still in poor taste, especially nowadays.

I know why it happens, they grew up with the joke and just never bothered to think about it. I can still call it out though, especially if it starts cropping up in later games that should know better. Still, a fun level. And the delivery of the joke did make me laugh with the high pitched scream they do, its the same kind of joke as Bugs Bunny getting caught in a shower. So I'll admit to enjoying the joke despite it's age.

Actually three towers all starting from the top of the last one, and quite a gauntlet to boot. A cool level, with some aspects of monumental assholery.

Also, that Wizard Swarm can go gently caress itself.

Ace Lightning Part 15 - Boss 4: Random Virus

We fight a boss with a gimmick that really should have been reserved for a game with functioning physics..

Also, a few thoughts on the level design since now we only have one boss to go to finish the game:

Something that strikes me about Ace Lightning is it tends to alternate between vertical and horizontal movement, sometimes in the same level. The Big Top is largely horizontal, as is most of Cowboy Crossroads with the only verticality being the end of the Cactus Gulch with the climb to the hotel.

However, the Garden of Illusion is a large horizontal level, followed by a deep vertical climb, then the final level having both types of movement in spades. Then the Medieval levels combine them further with a Fort to climb with brief horizontal and vertical sections that switch quickly, a dungeon that is mainly horizontal with some challenge rooms that have some verticality, and finally the upcoming level, a large tower with a few horizontal challenges but that is mainly vertical.
I thought that was interesting.

Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) doesn't need an introduction by this point. It's one of the most infamously bad, incomplete, unintentionally hilarious games in recent memory. Plenty of people have played it to show off its ridiculous badness, but few have actually been payed to do it. Thanks to my Patreon patrons, I have.
This is a totally casual, loose, goof-off playthrough of the game. The weird thing- despite never playing the game until now, I'm... weirdly good at it? I die plenty, but I end up not having an awful time with it despite how demonstrably unplayable it is. This is perhaps aided by my co-commentators, Mugiwara Yoshi, a long-time friend and collaborator whom I haven't worked with in over a year until now, and JigglyJacob (Shadow's story on) who is likewise but I have worked with more recently. We have a history goofing on Sonic (warning: pretty cheap and dated, but also necessary to understand our nonsense). We riff the poo poo out of the game and end up having a blast. However it's worth noting that, because of this, this LP can be either hilarious to you or loving annoying.

The Sonic Story was streamed on my Twitch to celebrate our channel's 8th birthday, and later story streams followed in subsequent months. The LP parts have been edited down from the stream to shorten the egregious load times when possible and skip through long retries. New parts go up on Mondays.

I kind of like Tails being Mech Boy, it's a niche that the other characters outside of eggman don't fall into so it's his own thing. More interesting than just being "Sonic with a weird butt" which was his original character in gameplay.

Ace Lightning: Final Boss!

In this fight we finally take down Lord Fear!... and Pigface... and Anvil... and Lady Illusion again? Yeah, this fight has a lot of players although only three really matter, the last one is just a distraction.

Something amusing that I just realised after uploading this is that Lord Fear has a party, like a JRPG character. He is the white mage, Lady Illusion is the Black Mage casting spells from afar, Pigface is the speedy Thief/Rogue, and Anvil is the Knight/Fighter. A Balanced Party.

Now that I have finished with this, next weekend I may do the next McFarlane video, so that could be neat.

I bring you more Burnout, with a look at the excellent sequel. We still have no Takedowns or EA Trax buttrock, but what we do have here is some truly excellent arcade racing and of course the debut of the Crash Mode!

Watching this back, it seems I'm pretty relaxed about all this crazy 150mph+ action going on. That's for you.
