So we’ve done another good thing, and despite all of my lack of time, I’ve managed to knock this game out and finish it off. My very fair and honest review of this game is that it’s alright. Not great, not bad, but mostly forgettable. It’s possible I was just playing it wrong, and by playing it wrong I mean completely ignoring the campaign and proceeding to just play the multiplayer. Pretty standard choice to make for games like this. But hey, at least the shortest campaign was the most fun one. Almost like they just did a few set pieces from the other campaigns but didn’t really tie them together into a cohesive story or anything really.
And speaking of archives, I’ve managed to get the one here on the site updated with a few more full playthroughs. Nothing exciting since these were already on YouTube, but Tales of Eternia and The Walking Dead are there now, and that’s exciting because those are the last two holdovers from YouTube that hadn’t been included in the site here yet. I also fixed up the F.3.A.R. stream dates using some detective work by looking at my Steam achievements and the dates attached. I’m super smart.
In NEW archive news, I’ve also added in Surgeon Simulator, in which I was a very good surgeon and nothing ever went wrong.
So as you can see, I’m still here. Still streaming, still getting the archive in order, still alive. Go me.
So here we are, starting up a new game, and it’s totally a good one. Aliens vs Predator (not the original) seems like a good place to start, so that’s what we’re playing. First stream’s already done with and in the archive so if you missed it, then hop on over there to catch it.
Next stream will likely be much later as I don’t imagine I’ll have any time this coming weekend to stream due to work. Unfortunate, but them’s the breaks.
Not much else going on, so let’s just end this post here before it gets awkward.
Look at us, just playing through all these horror games and finishing them at a reasonably normal rate. Layers of Fear was absolutely a video game that we played, and white it had some decent atmosphere, it relied way too much on them jump scares. I know a jumped a few times, but like, it got more annoying than spooky most of the time. Still, was fun to kick around in and see what kind of games people are making. And hey, there’s a sequel out if that’s something you’d be interested in. And maybe I’ll play the DLC someday.
And, on top of beating Layers of Fear, we also went back and ran through the (fairly) short DLC for F.E.A.R. 2. I guess it helped us to better see how we led into the third game, but it really was pretty damn short overall. Fun, in the same way the base game was fun, at least. It’s in the archive for that game if you’re interested.
Beyond that, I guess I should pick another new game to play next. Who knows what that’ll be. I certainly don’t, and won’t until the last minute probably.
Since we technically finished playing through F.E.A.R. 2 last weekend, that means we had to pick a new game for this weekend. Who procrastinated until the last minute and had to pick a filler game? Sure wasn’t this guy. I totally wanted to stream this game since days long gone when I somehow obtained it. I’m actually not sure if I paid money for it though. Probably came in a bundle, or was free at some point? My memory is awful, and my Steam library supports my terrible OCD choices.
Anyway, Layers of Fear will get added to the archive as I stream it, so if you miss any due to it being so late at night and you’re asleep, just head on over to the category and catch up on them there.
On another note, just as the title states, I’ve updated the archive with all of the fun Sleeping Dogs streams I did. So, of you ever need to hear vaguely shit humor about and surrounding Asians, I guess you should watch.
So, managed to square away some time to update the archive and here we are. Our Shadow Warrior streams are up now and available for all of you cool people to watch. Also, you might’ve noticed that there was a Twitter post for this as well. Lots of cool stuff coming together for the site again, and aside from maybe a bit of slowness, it’s working pretty well.
We’ll get some more stuff added to the archives soon. Maybe I’ll start delving into our Saturday and drunk streams finally. I’m sure those are what a lot more people have fun memories of, but I like my longform streams the most.
Yes, I know. I’m not Denzel. You’ll also not find any references to Denzel in any of our F.E.A.R. 2 streams. Speaking of that, we just finished playing that game (for the most part). But I mean, I did actually beat the game (sans DLC so far). I also am ending every sentence with a qualifying parenthetical (like this one).
Anyway, yes. We’ve played F.E.A.R. 2, we’ve beaten F.E.A.R. 2. We also beat F.3.A.R. a long while back with Highwang. We, unfortunately, have yet to even play F.E.A.R. though. Maybe another stream and we’ll be the most comprehensive F.E.A.R. streamer this side of kuoushi.com. Best out of 1 players isn’t bad. Okay, enough joking around.
The archive itself has been languishing for a bit, but I’ll get back to updating it with old streams shortly, you’ll see. It’ll be great. The best archive. The most thorough and complete archive you’ve ever seen. Maybe I’ll even add in a calendar so you can stroll back through memory lane and see where you were back during our old streams, if you were there anyway.
Thanks for tuning in though, always a good time playing these silly games.
Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood among other things was certainly a game, and while not the longest, that doesn’t mean that us clearing it is insignificant. since we so rarely manage to find the time to stream these days. Thoughts on what we’ll play next are currently pretty scattered, but we do have some solid options. First up though, some stream archives for Bound in Blood which was absolutely a video game made by a record number of dudes named Pawel.
So like I said above, we have a number of decent options we can turn to for streams. The one I’m considering the most heavily is a return to my SaGa playthrough and start back up with Romancing SaGa 3, at it is actually now in English and on PC even. I don’t think it’d be a great idea for me to revisit Romancing SaGa 2 just yet, but that is still on the menu as well.
Another potential is to hold off on returning to SaGa and play a tangentially related JRPG like Octopath Traveler. I’ve played a bit of it and it’s quite neat. I like what they did with the visuals and everything, so I feel like it’d be a good game to stream and try to get my RPG feet back under me, as I haven’t streamed one for some time.
Some other shorter options are also probably a good idea, like attempting to go back to Gunman Chronicles and finish that playthrough up, or doing the same for Shadow Warrior 2 which I kind of gave up on for no reason that I can remember.
Or there’s always trying something completely different that I haven’t touched yet, like Alien Isolation which is a good game by all accounts. We could honestly kind of do anything, so I’ll have to figure out what by next weekend.
And lastly, the archive is still chugging along as I get the time to update it. Next thing to go in will be my Shadow Warrior run. The remake, that is.
Yes, I’m aware that is a shitty title for a blog post, let’s move on.
We’ve just defeated Thief 3, and honestly it feels good to finish a game after a long hiatus from longer form streams due to work and baby and things. The latter of those two doesn’t bother me, but work taking away my time certainly sucks.
All that being said, here’s hoping that Thief 3 is only the first of at least one or two games that have been lingering in the depths of the mists of obscurity or some other turn of phrase that we will be able to finally bring some stream closure. I know there’s not too many people out there watching anymore, but it at least feels nice to get these done.
Also, Mother 3 is hitting the archives as well, so I highly recommend checking those out. Or not, I can’t control you. I also have no idea what even happened in those streams. July/August 2010 was a different time.
Thank you for the visit, hopefully I’ll have some more stuff hitting the site.
I’ve started to create an archive containing all of my old streams from back to the absolute early days, on up into the modern kuoushi streams. This will likely be a very large undertaking and won’t be finished anytime remotely soon, but I feel like the end result will be worth it to me at least. These streams cover a lot of my personal history and a bunch of different time periods in the life of kuoushi, plus a dickton of games and memories.
We’ve also been slowly continuing our Thi3f streams. Making progress, stealing stuff, and not being as awful as we could be at the games. I do think I’ve fucked myself over in the hub world though. Tune in this weekend to enjoy that idiocy.
The site has slowly started to take shape again. I have our totally cool forums going which are absolutely a thing that will be super busy and not just kind of there for my own amusement. We’ve got proper stream embeds on the front page, which honestly is pretty okay. I’d like to make the embeds stay there even when people are offline, but that’s $50 I’m not super into spending right now. We’ve got a cute little not super effective widget showing the status of our Sven Co-op server at any given moment, assuming it hasn’t crashed. User registrations are opened back up, too.
Oh, and I suppose there have been a few more kuoushi streams lately. That’s pretty cool too. Just kicking around some games that are fun, and with a whole new layout and vaguely interactive elements for viewers. More to come on that latter front, but it’s coming together.
All in all, things are looking up for the kuoushi world. Not too sizable at the moment, but hey, we’re just getting back into the swing of things.
