Uploading the last parts

I will upload the yet to be edited parts of Drakan next week. Maybe Wednesday, maybe sooner. I'm really proud of myself for completing something I set forth to do, and be the amount of feedback I've been getting. Thank you! As I said before, I'll make a poll for people to vote on what's up next.

Drakan is COMPLETE!

I beat Drakan last night, and will have up to three videos up by tonight, and will finish editing the last few videos, and have them uploaded by Friday. Thanks to all who have watched commented and subscribed to my first playthrough. I will have a poll for people to vote for the next game I'll play. I hope everyone has a great winter holiday, and play allot of games!

Here's a little present to all who read my blog and watch my videos.

Inside the zip folder are three game saves for Fallout 3 that will give you four free trophies in a couple seconds. All you have to do is get them onto your PS3 by help with a flash drive or memory card, which will show up when you look under the game section on the XMB. Then copy all three onto he HDD, and play them. From in the game all you have to do to get the trophies is go inside Agatha's house, give her the viol en. Doing this will give you the trophy for completing "Agatha's Song". If you do this for all three game saves, you'll also level up to level 20, and get a trophy for doing so with evil, neutral and good karma. Booyah! Four free trophies! All because you read my blog. No, thank you. Merry... winter holiday.

Christmas Break

I'm shooting for finally finishing Drakan over the Christmas Break. I'm going to upload this week's and next week's videos next Friday. I might even upload them earlier, but still next week. I'm going to take a break and catch up on Fallout 3 over the week end.


I finally got the Mournbringer! All of the elemental blades have been found, and now I have this kick ass sword! I predict we're going to see some serious soulless ownage.

Now that finals are wrapping up, I'll have more time to play Drakan, and hopefully finish it!

Sorry I missed so many weeks.

Into the Kragmore!

I had problems with Windows Movie Maker while finnishing up the first attempt of going through the Kragmore. The fotage was over an hour long so I guess that's the reason it messed up. It said that thier was an argument or somthing with the settings. I don't remember what exacly but it was along the lines of that. Anyway, I fortunately had a save before the Kragmore and did it in half the time the second time. I also found Blackwing eggs, that I was able to locate with the help of a PNG map I found on Gamefaqs. I never got more than the three you find in Surdana, which everyone knows about.

This level is the level featured in the Official Playstation Magazine Demo when it came out long ago. It featured a behind the scenes video too. Maybe the lisens are expiored and I'll upload a capture of that soon.

Some bad news here, I attempted the cave with the skelenton puzzle out side of it in a video not too long ago. I got my ass kicked a few times till I desided to try it later with better equipment. I whent back to the cave to do this weeks video, but it was sealed! So now I can't ever go back in it. Fortunately it wasn't an elemental blade, just some sword called the "Clineschmidt" blade, or somthing. Go look it up in the faq... Hold up, I looked i up and pressing the same button 3 times resets it. I'll try that.

Otherwise that's it.

BIT OF TRIVIA The blade Clineschmidt is a refferance to lead designer Todd Clineschmidt at Surreal Software!

I'm on vacation for two weeks, so no new Drakan for a while. I'll try to catch up when I get back. I was planning to do a marathon and stockpile a few playthrough videos, but I was working on my other project.

In the meantime, I was searching the Internet some time ago, and came across the chicken sword. I never found any proof, but I was wandering if anyone actually found it. So far I know it spawns randomly in the merchants inventory, and the only inclination that they have it, is you hear a chicken sound when you enter the store.

If anyone has a picture of this, I'd like to see it!

Drakan Break?

I'm late this week again. I've said that I'd do three videos a week and release them on the Friday of that week, but I keep falling behind. I'm trying to make time for my main project Shadow of the Brick 2, so that leaves little to no time for Drakan. I guess I have too much on my plate at the time. I'll try to play tonight, or maybe tomorrow. Look for three videos Monday. Maybe I'll feel guilty and do six? :)

Allot of people have been criticizing my skill at the game, particularly the parts where I'm flying Arokh. I have to tell you people, this game has clunky controls and deplorable clipping! You get stuck to the enviorment all the time. Landing Arokh is aggravating in its own. It shows the games age, but it's still a good game. And for the people still criticizing my game play in the earlier videos, like say from 10 to 20: ease up! I've got better since then. I forgot all about combos and the like till part 20 or more! I'm getting better still. This game is hard, and the parts you see me die is when I left it in because I thought the death animation was cool. For example the battle with Demog. He killed Rynn almost six or seven times till I used the spell to sploit a kill. I cut most of the second part out, that's why it was shorter and no third part was uploaded that week.

Ok, enough blog. I hope people read this. Thanks for watching, I appreciate it :)

This game is longer than I remember, and seem to remember renting it twice to beat it. With only doing a half an hour a week, it might take a while to beat it, since I'm taking my time to get everything. Any one kn ow of any Black wing eggs in Ravenshold? I got a map showing three in Kragmore, which is more eggs in the entiore game that I ever got!

It's also alot harder without god mode on...

If you watched part... 35 or 36, i think, you'd notice that there's no audio. ... I think I had the wrong settings on Windows Movie Maker. I think I overrode the save before the part in the videos too, so I don't think I can redo it. The boss fight can be found elsewhere though...

May 9, 2008

I finally got around to uploading the recent session with Drakan. I'm getting to the Andrellion Islands now, and have just got the medicine bag back. This is from videos 25-27.

I'm also branching out to do some tricks and tips style videos with other games. I'm still doing Drakan, and am putting up three videos every week on Friday. It's getting good now too.

Primal is the next game...

Changes here...

No posts for awhile. I've moved the video part to my Youtube site and am only going to do commentary on the videos here. So go to the Youtube site for the videos, come here for comments on my progress and other opinions on the game(s).

Next game will be Primal, I'll start playing it when I'm done with Drakan, which won't be for a long while actually, Drakan is a long and hard game. I've been spending all my gold in that game for potions. It'll probably be June when I get done with Drakan.

No videos yet, I haven't played Drakan for a while now, college...

22-24 will be up by Friday, I'm doing 1 3o minute session at a time and slitting it up into 3 segments every time to fit Youtube restrictions.

Drakan Update

Sorry it's been awhile since I added any more videos for the Drakan playthrough, I've been editing and uploading them to Youtube for a while, so when I do add the new ones, they'll be ten minutes each. I've done this because it's easier to upload, and the audio was messing with the Google video uploader method. Look to the Matt's Gameplay account on Youtube for the new videos, come back here for commentary.

Drakan: The Ancients' Gates, Part 3

Rynn descends into the swamps of the Shadowmire, an unpleasant, and not at all pleasant, and horribly crappy place... I hate Shadowmire. I... Rynn dies a few times here, but I stop recording when it comes to starting the level again. Note to self: Save often...

Drakan: The Ancient's Gates, Part 1

This is the old action RPG game I played waaay before Oblivion. It was the first Dragon riding simultor too I think. Here Rynn and the soon to come Arokh are on a mission to restore the order of the flame and reactivate the mother's eye, so they can awaken the Dragon Mother... lost you? Well watch the intro here. Also, the ol' "kill all the spiders in the bacment" quest.
Oh, and at the end, I seem to get lost... I was going to edit it out, but screw it. I'll have parts 2 and 3 up before you know it. I'm playing a half an hour a day, and started Saturday I think. Stay tuned, and tell your friends, your geek friends at least...

I'm back with Gex!

I't been a while since I've posted here, considered it a failure for a while, but I'm back. Here's the last boss battle for Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko. This year was the first time I've EVER got to Rez. This video is from this summer, and after I bought it off eBay. I hadn't played for at least five years since I rented it from Blockbuster for PS1!
