Streaming the LucasArts adventure library

This is going to sound so stupid... Oh, hi there!

Do you have fond memories of your first plays through the old LucasArts adventure games? Do you wish you could relive those experiences? Well, here's your chance! Join me on Livestream as I experience the majority of the old LucasArts library for the first time! Offer me advice to help me advance! Offer me false advice to hinder me! Watch and see if you can pinpoint the exact moment the game breaks my spirit and I resort to a walkthrough! Or just sit back and re-experience the novelty of a first playthrough!

Now, things are a little crazy for me right now, so there's not going to be any sort of schedule for how I do this. I might let you guys know a day ahead, or a few hours ahead, or I might just post in here and tell you guys I'm going to start playing something.

I've already played through the Monkey Island games, Hit the Road, and Grim Fandango, so I'll be running through Maniac Mansion, Zak McKracken, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Loom, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, and The Dig. As a bonus, I might also stream my first ever play of SBCG4AP Episode 5: 8-Bit is Enough. As an extra bonus, I might stream Hit the Road and Grim Fandango anyway, since Hit the Road confused the hell out of me and I haven't played Grim Fandango in a good long while.

I'll be broadcasting on my Livestream channel:

So...anyone interested?

  • Well, that's one hell of a bump.

    I'm sort of considering doing it tomorrow evening. There hasn't been much interest since the resurrection, but I figure I can start it and if the people who were interested still are, it'll build up steam as I move through the library.

    I might drop in for Maniac Mansion if I'm free when you do it. Especially if you play with characters other than Sid and Bernard (I played with them just a couple of weeks ago, and I'd really like to see the possibilities that arise with a different combination).
  • That'd be awesome. From what I understand, Bernard is both practically necessary and pretty much canon, but I wouldn't mind trying someone other than Sid as the third character.

    I'm thinking I'll do it at some point this afternoon or evening. Not sure when, but I'll try to give you guys some notice once I see how the day is going. Now, I'm gonna get some sleep so I can be at least half-conscious when I play.
  • I always picked Razor as a third character.
    I'd love to learn about the different combinations when choosing different characters!

    Yes to the latter, no to the former. If your argument for the presence of Bernard is his ability to fix stuff, the hidden skill of Jeff is that he can fix the phone so you can get past Edna (though you can also get past her while she's busy carting someone off to the dungeon). Fixing and using the radio (Bernard's other purpose) is only necessary for the Meteor Police ending(s).

    As far as I know, the game is completable with any set of three. Bernard lets you summon the Meteor Police, Syd or Razor lets you get a recording contract for Green Tentacle (and nuke the hamster, so I guess one of them is the "canon" third), Michael develops the plans for Weird Ed, and Wendy edits The Meteor's memoirs. My personal favorite ending is from having Wendy edit the memoirs, having Bernard call the Meteor Police, and then showing The Meteor the publishing contract before the policeman arrives.
  • I might enough this actually.
  • Well, I just got home and have a few things to take care of, but I think I could start up in about an hour if that's okay with you guys.
  • Looks like I got online at the right time! AWWW YEAAAAAAAH.
  • Sorry, running a little late. Give me some time to get my setup figured out and I'll try to get this going.
  • Good news and bad news. The good news is that I seem to have my computers set up how I want them to run the stream. Bad news is it's time for dinner. I'm going to estimate another half hour or so before I get going. Sorry!
