Let's Play Armored Core: Large Text Dump

Since I've basically completely skipped the story so far, here are some emails from R to explain the various factions that make up the future world of Armored Core.

Let's start with Murakumo Millennium and Chrome themselves:

From: R

Chrome and Murakumo

Zam City was one of the very first cities built in the underground city development program, so redevelopment is proceeding in various areas of the city.

Let's Play Armored Core!

Armored Core

Armored Core is a game series by From Software, who are best known for, well, the Armored Core game series. While still somewhat a niche title, Armored Core is a fairly successful "mech" game. You play as a mercenary, called a Raven, who pilots an Armored Core: a giant customizable mech.

Read on for the rest of the Let's Play.

Let’s Play Commander Keen 5: It Has Begun

My brother and I have started playing through Commander Keen 5, a relatively well known old DOS side-scroller.

And one that really hasn’t aged well, nor does it play as well as some of the more well-known console-based side-scrollers like Mario.

I’m not going to upload the video quite yet, although it looks like we’ve got a working system. Before I get to that, I want to finish my Commander Keen 4 Pyramid of the Forbidden video, which I’ve finally got a “finished” version of that I still need to upload.


Let's Play Commander Keen 4

PAX East is coming up this weekend, and what better way to prepare than to play really old DOS sidescrollers?

So, Let's Play Commander Keen 4!

This is my first Let's Play, so it's going to be a bit rough around the edges. Video is available after the jump.


Final Fantasy XIII: Freaking Eidolon Battles

The Eidolon battles in Final Fantasy XIII are stupidly hard. These are the battles where you fight against a summon monster in order to gain the ability to summon it in battle.

Now you might be assuming I'm complaining about them being challenging. Except they're not, they're basically just rapidly switching between Paradigms and mashing X. (Or A on the Xbox 360.)

No, instead they're needlessly hard because of the way they're designed.

Garland will CRUSH YOU!

This is photoshopped (well, GIMPed), but if you've played Dissidia Final Fantasy:

Garland: I'll CRUSH YOU!!

Wait, How Are They Going to do Tceles-B Hsup?

One of the things in Final Fantasy was a "magic spell" taught to you by a broom that told you to Tceles-B Hsup - "push B-select" backwards. It brought up the world map. How can they do that on the iPhone?

Broom: Wodniw Sutats Dloh Dna Pat.

Ah. Like that.

Final Fantasy is out on iPhone

Hm... I may need to add an iPhone section under games.

Whatever. In any case, Final Fantasy (both I and II) are out for iPhone. Here are some screenshots from my first 15 minutes (yeah, I know, not very interesting):

Just to let people know that I really do have something, here's a screenshot:
