Primal Behind the Scenes

Just got done capturing the 15 minute or so behind the scenes footage off of the Issue 63 OPM demo disc. I'll wait till I finish the playsthrough, or at least get through the parts the show in the videos because it could be considered spoilers, or whatever... Anyway it shows the voice actors behind the mics, development footage, a short summery of the premise and story, and a bit about the band the band that provided music for the game, 16 Volt. So look for that in the near future!

New Toy!

Wow... I didn't even finish the first game! I had the money, and wanted it... for some reason... $25 well spent? It's realy big, and heavy too. So yeah, I guess GoW Collection can wait...

Wednesday, November 25, 2009


OK, I got my computer back, and everything is gone. Aww, no big deal, just a bunch of crap on there anyway. So here's the thing, I was lazy to edit some footage for Primal so I lost a bit of it in there. I may have to start over so I can recapture the footage of the part I already did back then. So yes, I think I am going to finish the game. Also, I have some new (old) games I'm planning to do playthroughs for. I want to get back into the streak I had going during Drakan; multiple videos up in a week. First I'll have to build up a back log so I can get ahead of myself and fall back on videos when I don't have time to play any further. Also, apparently lack of memory isn't a problem anymore, so I'll be able to save the videos under better quality! WEEEE! See you soon.

My computer crashed, so I haven't been able to do anything for the channel. I may even end up losing everything on there, but that's ok i guess, nothing IMORTANT on there, so hell... Maybe it'll be OK, but I feel bad getting so far behind on stuff. Eh, it's not like anyone cares. Who reads this stupid thing anyway? Well, I just felt bad not doing or uploading anything lately, so I felt the need to get it out. thanks for reading this if you did... you are awesome!

Does anyone care about Primal? It doesn't seem to be getting many hits on the channel, while the Ghoul mask video continues to get hits. I might just give up on Primal, I haven't been playing it at all since I started months ago. I don't really care about it, it's no Drakan I'll say that! I don't know, tell me what you think, otherwise I don't care, you guys are the reason I'm doing this.

Primal, Part 1

Primal, a game I’ve never played before, but do remember seeing in the late Official PlayStation Magazine. They even had it as a demo on the disk that came along with every issue of the magazine, along with a behind the scenes trailer. It looked interesting, dark and epic. I was just fresh off Drakan: The Ancients' Gates at the time, and was looking forward to another game of just the sort. However, I was hesitant to get the game for some reason, and only came upon it again just a few years back in a Game Stop. I purchased it based on my initial interest I had all those years ago, yet put off playing it until now. Well, strap in, because this is looking to be another long playthrough, that's sure to last over forty of even fifty installments. So... Here we go! Let's hope it's worth it :D

Next Playthrough!

OK, I think it's time for a new full playthrough. I don't really have much time to play games anymore, with college in full force, but I thought that 190 subscribers (!!!) should deserve some new content. So, I'll let you decide.

Here are the choices, and keep in mind that I have NEVER played any of these games, so I don't even know if they're good, so it's up to you. Hell, I just bought them because I'd heard of them... and they were cheap, too.

So here they are:

Primal (PS2 - adventure game?)
Killer 7 (PS2 - weird ass shooter?)
The Darkness (Ps3 - horror shooter?) I don't have this yet*

I looked through YouTube and saw little in the way of a The Darkness playthrough, maybe I'll get it just to LP it? Shouldn't be that hard to find... I don't know, until I can track down Pirates, these are some obscure games I have. So, comment with your recommendation.

New Toy!

I got my haircut Friday, which gave me an excuse to go through the mall afterwards. I picked up the Player Select Isaac Clark (Dead Space game) figure with the plasma cutter. It’s pretty awesome looking, and now seeing him in full, I can say that the character design of his suit is really wild! It’s a really detailed figure with lots of points of articulation, and if you press a button on his back, his helmet visor and the Holotech meter lights up! (The bars on the back of the suit that act as the in-game life meter, btw) It was pretty pricy, at around $17 or so, at FYE. They also had the one with the saw blade weapon. The only thing I don’t like about the figure is the flimsy nature of the plasma cutter, it’s made of some PVC plastic, and O was scared that I’d break off a thin, long part off it just taking it out if the packaging. Other than that, it knocked off one of my Shadow of the Colossus figures (Wander on Agro) and broke off the sword, which really brought me down this morning. I used super glue for a quick fix.

I’ve been playing more of Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations for the DS, and so far it’s either really easy and boring, or confusing and not clear in what it’s asking of the player. I hope it’ll get better as I get further into the game, but so far the part I hate most is the parts where you have to talk to people and collect clues around the crime scene; really boring, and not much going on.

DS Games!

I got Elite Beat Agents for free a few weeks ago. I was able to do this because there was a special deal at the Micro Center where if you bought some DS accessory on this shelf, you would get the game for free. So I bought some nice DS pack for around $17 and got the game for free essentially.

I got the game purely because the Mega64 video I saw a while back, and if it's good enough for them to do a video about, it's good enough for me to buy. I've actually never seen it in stores till then, but then again, I wasn't looking for it when it came out.

It's pretty fun, and it's so far been one of the only games to make me tear up, just because I got so into the music, and the music is awesome! Earth Wind and Fire's "September" and Queen's "I Was Born to Love You" are just beautifully-kick-ass songs!

So I was glad I picked it up, and so far I'm stuck at the ninja level on medium. I'll give it another shot when I'm not playing Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations! Which I picked up for $19.89, and ended up only paying $15 for! This game is fun, but so far slow-paced. I don't mind the text, coming right off Hotel Dusk: Room 215 (Which kicked soooo much ass!), but I wish there was more I could DO.

Wall-Mart has some old shit, like a brand new copy of Okami for $39! Wow, still $39? Damn...

New Videos Soon!

I'm thinking of doing some quick Battlefield 1943 videos displaying techniques that I've learned playing all three classes of soldiers. Hopefully I'll be able to show off the maps in an effective way as well, and maybe show off a little all the while :D I'm no good at the plane so forget about that for now. I REALLY WANT to do some more gameplay videos dealing with Fallout 3, since they've proven to be the most popular on the channel, with the one about getting the Ghoul Mask well over 10,000 views (!!!!), especially when the DLC FINALLY comes out.

I will eventually do a complete play through of Black Kat, IF I ever find a complete copy. I haven't tried eBay yet, so I might give it a look.

Battlefield 1943.... ALMOST

I've been wanting a new game for a while now, maybe something online. I do have Warhawk, but that game aggravates me, and I may never play it again. Metal Gear Online is full of crap, and I may never boot that up again. So that's pretty much all I have in the way of online games.

A few weeks ago I watched the good people at 1up play the game on one of their "Game Night" events, and it looked pretty fun. I waited for it to come out, growing eager every time I looked through my game collection for something exciting to play, but because most of the games I own are slow paced, or have been beaten, I ended up not playing anything after all. I wanted to play something exciting, and maybe online, and Battlefield 1943 looked to be the right answer.

I downloaded the demo of the game, and ended up being quite good at it, ending up as the top or top three in my team in the way of points and kills! I liked the game, it was fun and exciting, just what I wanted. I really liked playing as the Japanese, getting into the character of a sneaky scout. OK, so it was final, I was going to get this game, and I might be good at it!

Eventually I found out that the game was out, and I looked through the Best Buy ads for the game, but evidently the game was only available through digital distribution, a bit of a laugh at my self fallowed. OK, so let's go buy it I said to my self. So I waited the tree days it takes Paypal to ad funds from a bank account, and I finally bought it today! So far I can hardly play it AT ALL. I started slow with the tutorial, but plunged into the online play, and here's where it got unplayable.

Every time I spawn, I have about five seconds of running until I get killed. Now this might sound like a noob whining, but here's a scenario that kept ruining the game for me, though out the whole time I played it today. First I would span, run a bit, and die. OK, I spawn again, maybe I'll go off the path to avoid running into enemies. OK, so I'll run up this hill, um... I'm back at the bottom of the hill... OK that was weird. Let's try again. OK so now we're running up the... OK now we're at the bottom again, wtf? OK, let's try this a third time! OK, no enemies up here, let's capture this base. Now where's the flag... OK, I ran right through that wall, that was... why am I AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HILL AGAIN?! I just ran up there three times! Wtf? Now I'm dead, and no one killed me??! The hell? Fine! Let's try this again, spawn, BOOM! Dead... OK... What? I was signed out of PlayStation Network? I turn it off and leave the room...

You see, the problem most of the time was that I was constantly jumping from forward, or backwards. Sometimes right though walls! I could never just run to a place without over shooting it, or be warped ten feet back from where I ran to! I don't know if this was only happening to me, because I saw planes STOP in mid air, only to be jettisoned forward a few seconds later. Maybe I'm getting bad lag, or maybe it's the damn wifi router crapping out. It constantly disconnects when I'm trying to do something! Right now, as I write this diatribe, the Internet notification has chimed three times! WTF is wrong with this damn router? I want to play the game I just bought, but the Internet is always crapping out, either if it's raining, where it's out completely, or just randomly disconnecting.

Anybody out there know what's wrong here? Otherwise I'm thinking of hunting for Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat... or playing something else. I guess I'll make a video about the choices......

Another one under the belt!

Thus ends the playthrough of Star Wars: Episode 1, The Phantom Menace for the Playstation 1. The game was a favorite of mine during the time Episode 1 was out in theaters, and gave me hours of entertainment, filling in the gaps and back stories left open in the film. I spent countless hours exploring every nook and cranny of the somewhat flawed but expansive levels of Tatooine and Ohtogunga. Despite my hours of gameplay, I had only finished the game to the end once with the help of the debug cheat code, and invincibility turned on, but it was fun to dust off the game and play it again, and remember where everything was! I hope you'll come back for more, and please, subscribe if you've enjoyed my playthroughs so far. I plan to do more LPs of obscure games of my child hood and beyond.

Thank you all for watching, and your warm feedback. I do this for you, the viewers.

Here's the rating I got for the game: Padawan Learner. I don't think that's really that good :\ But I like to take my time and explore.

I'll let you know what I'm going to do next, but fist I have stuff to do, so I'll take a break from Matt's Gameplay for a while.

inFamous Videos up

I've uploaded three inFAMOUS videos to the channel, one is a side mission that I though was particularly kick ass, a little video showing an Easter egg alluding to Sly Cooper, and one which is almost a gameplay video showing me getting the Cole costume for Playstation Home. I don't know, I felt compelled to record that... anyway, I'm sure allot of you 120+ subscribers, or at least 12 of you who read this, are pissed that I've yet to continue the Star Wars: Episode 1 gameplay videos, and have been uploading these dumb videos instead. Okay, I haven't even beat it yet, BUT I plan to tomorrow, at the earliest! So look forward to maybe even three videos tomorrow to kick this playthrough in gear. There's only three or four levels left, so it's almost over. Stay tuned!!

Gameplay Videos Break

If you read the description of part 23 of the Star Wars: Episode 1 gameplay videos, you should have read that I am working on a project that I have been working on for the last three years, and if you went to the blog I liked to, you would have found out that the project is Shadow of the Brick 2, the sequel to my LEGO stop motion animation spoof of Shadow of the Colossus.

Anyway, I will continue to upload and finally beat the game when I'm done with the film, thanks for subscribing, and hope to read your comments when I return with the last five or six videos in the playthrough!

Saturday, June 6, 2009


Wow, is Star Wars Episode taking longer than I thought. I really should have been over with this play through, but I upload the videos so sporadically, and I've been focusing all of my time on my LEGO film, so I haven't even beat the game yet! Crap, I'll finish the game in June, just wait. I have enough footage for a few more uploads, maybe three or two at the max, so that'll be enough for one a week till I'm done with my other projects. Thanks for subscribing and watching, I have over 100 subs now! THANK YOU!

Star Wars part 18

I did the second part of Tatooine in the wrong order. You see, first you're supposed to go see Jaba at the first part of the level, then that leads you to Watto's box, to make the bet. I went for Watto first, and if you see him before you got the money from Jaba, Watto tells you to get the money, but when you leave the doors to him lock shut, so you have to start the level over again. So I did... and the fight at Jaba's is alto easier then I thought when I played through the game before. I've beat the monster three times now, and only died on the first try. I'm going to try to fix part 18 and 19 by doing them again, so be patient. I'll try to get the next parts up more regularly.

Drakan 2 Trailer Up!

I just uploaded a trailer from before Drakan: The Ancients' Gates was available. It was from an old PlayStation Magazine demo a friend gave me a while back. At least, I think it's from a magazine, maybe he just got it in the mail from Sony. Anyway, it looks like it might even be from when Drakan 2 was in development, as the HUD, and some of the designs of the worlds look different. I kinda like how the life bar looked back then, all pointy and ornate-like. The compass also looks really wicked.

Another thing to consider is that this was before they came up with the subtitle for the game, as they just called it Drakan II. It's kind of weird that they would even call it Drakan II, since the first one never came out on a Sony console. Bad marketing I'd think... Well, I'm off to play more Star Wars: Episode I, I ran out of my backlog videos, so I have to get more footage.

Part 10 of Episode 1 going up now!

I'm uploading part 10 of Star Wars: Episode 1, and boy was editing that video in a way that it made sense was a pain. I died so many times in that video that of the hour of raw footage I recorded, half of it was cut! Amidala kept dying, I kept dying, damn those droids! Well, I'm at Tatooine now, and have almost beat Mos Espa in the one sitting I played it last week! I'll have one more video in Theed, then it'll delve into the footage of Tatooine.

Plenty of people have added me on PSM (Darthjak) because I showed my screen name on the Fallout 3: Platinum Trophy video. Maybe over five people, now. Wow! I never thought I'd have so many people on my friends list. I'll have to do something to get a game going with some of you. Speaking of that, I tried GTA 4 online for the first time Friday. I thought I'd never play it online, but it was fun. Needless to say I died allot of times, but was pretty good at it at the same time. Maybe some of you would like to get a game going with me? Send me an invite when you see me playing.

I also play Metal Gear Online, If you want to add me on there. My user name is Berzerkerwolf.

New Videos Up

Part 9 of the Star Wars: Episode playthrough is up now. It's been going by slowly, mostly because I'm so lazy when it comes to uploading videos, of editing them, at the least. I finally got out of Theed, and am heading to Tatooine, my favorite part of the game. I sat down and recorded an hour of footage a few weeks ago, so I won't have to play for a while, as I can just sit on and continue editing the footage into three or four videos. I haven't even started on Tatooine, yet, but I have been trying to get back into playing the game. It's just a hassle to have to record footage and try the same part over and over again. The latest video I uploaded, part 9, I edited out fifteen minutes of me continuously dying, over and over again. I hate those destroyer droids!

I'll try to get myself to sit down and continue the game some time over the week end maybe. Thanks for watching, and I might upload some of my failed attempts at certain parts for comedic value. :P

Star Wars: Episode 1 Playthrough

I'm doing a playthrough of the PS1 game Star Wars: Episode 1 The Phantom Menace. This may be ten or less videos long, and take a few days to beat in real time. So far I've played it for three days, and have edited and uploaded three videos. So far that's one and a half hour, and I have two more hours to edit left.

This is another one of those save state games, like Drakan, where if you die you go back to the place and time you last saved. So far I have forgot to save in plenty of occasions, and have had to redo an entire level again. We're so spoiled with autosave, I think, that we don't take it for granite. I always forget to save, and this game is hard at times.

I'm almost at Tatooine, my favorite part in the game. This is going to be fun if I remember all of the secrets I found when I played the hell out of this game back in the day.

Playing Ratchet and Clank: Future

I beat this game, but I decided to pop it in, and found out I never fully upgraded all of the weapons, so I grinded in the arena for a while. That's all I really did today. I'm a night person any way. Will try to get another video down tonight.

Full Gameplays Underway!

I've uploaded three parts of Katamari Damacy. Lots of people have done this already, but this gives me a reason to FINALLY play it. I'm also doing Star Wars Episode 1 on the PS1. No one has done it yet, and I'm doing it without cheats for the first time my self. I loved this game back when Episode 1 came out, and loved the Tatooine level. I think it came to a point when the game kept freezing eventually. I hope it doesn't impede my gameplay videos.

Thanks for watching, and subscribing if you did!!

Fallout Clips

I've been doing a few Fallout 3 clips here and there. I'll try to do some other games, but I don't know if I'll do any more full play throughs though. I realy want to only do games that no one elss has done. Primal, Gun, both were games I wanted to do, but people have already done them. Damn. I'll try to do more vids soon, though.

Monday, January 19, 2009

Next Game?

I've had no success to finding Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat, so I might do Neversoft's Gun instead. Let me know what you think. I'll start next week, probably.

Monday, January 5, 2009

Next Game Possabilities

Here is a list of the games I am thinking of doing for my next gameplay. I'll have a poll for readers to vote for the game they'll want to see, but I'm still trying to get a good list first.

Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko
This might be hard to do, because every level has several goals, and only one can be completed at a time, so it'll include massive back tracking.
This is another long game, and Ive never played it before. I don't think I could do another epic game right after Drakan, maybe do a little shorter one first.
God of War: Chains of Olympus
I think I can record from the PSP. I haven't tried it yet, but I do have the cables necessary.
Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat
This is a really old PS2 game, along the vain of Drakan. It's really rare too, but if I wait till I find it, it'd be a good game to do, and no one has done an LP of it yet, i don't think.

So that's it so far. I don't have many rare games that no one has done before. I'll do another post later if I add anything. Please leave comments on suggestions, and I'll see if I can get my hands on the game. By the way I have a PS1, PS2, PS3, Game Cube, PSP, and a Sega Master System.

Final Drakan Videos

The final Drakan videos are going up right now. The first one should be done in an hour. Thanks again for watching.
