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: http://livestream.com/guruguru214

So...anyone interested?

  • Sorting out some issues with the laptop. Nothing that I'm concerned about being able to fix, but I'll probably still be about another half hour.
  • Oooh...Are we going to start this? I might join in.
  • WHEN ARE YOU GONNA GET THlS RUNNlNG. GEEEEEEZ
  • Laptop's ready to go, except for a restart. Anyone who wants in on the Google hangout can join in here. Let me know if that doesn't work. I'll be in as soon as my laptop finishes restarting.

    As usual, the stream will be here. I'm not streaming yet, but I'm watching the chat on my channel, so feel free to come in and start talking. I'll be starting up the stream when everyone's ready.
  • Got about halfway through the castle before I had to stop for the night. I might try to resume this a little spontaneously, if I have the time and enough people interested, or I might try to shoot for finishing it up on Monday.
  • It was fun watching it trying like hell to remember what do to. Paying for it now though with only about 4 hours of sleep (which was interrupted half way through by the estate agent wanting rent money). That's all my fault as I didn't prepare properly. I'd like to see the rest of the stream, whenever is best for all is fine.

    That sounds like a scene from a Dickens novel. Do you pay your rent in cash?

    Yeah because I can't be sure if I have enough money in my bank account when the rent is due and if I don't then I can incur an extra charge from the bank.
  • I decided to revisit this thread because I have an idea. Is anyone up for a "Great LucasArts race of 2013"? Just thought it would be a nice thing to do in anticipation for the release of The Cave, or the release of Double Fine Adventure, depending on when it should be done, if it should be done at all, just a thought :p
