Let’s Play – Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Back in the day when I was just a baby noob, I played Uncharted: Drakes Fortune. Fun fact – that was my second ever Let’s Play series! I had never really played a game like it and it showed. Three years later, it is finally time to dive into Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

Since then, I have had bits of shooter experience through my Ps Plus series, but mostly, I am in full on adventure mode right now. I cannot wait to see what the game that is widely regarded as the best in the series has to offer!

Let’s Play – Jessika

I was going to play this one for Halloween but got the opportunity to jump in earlier!

Jessika is a German, Indie, FMV Detective game developed by Tritrie Games. This game first jumped onto my radar at the Steam Game Festival, where it was one of my favourite demos of the Summer Edition 2020. I was instantly drawn into the immersive UI and I have a building fascination with FMV games after working in video IRL. Join me as continue beyond ‘that moment’ in the demo and attempt to unravel the mystery of what exactly did happen to Jessika.

Unfortunately, the first two episodes I had some technical difficulties on my end. The audio of the game did not record, so I went back and recorded all of the video logs and some background noise and edited them back in. Sadly (but also obviously) it is not as effective as the real game so please don’t judge the game on that! I had so many technical difficulties through no fault of the game, I think my play through was cursed 😅 The audio issues were solved by Episode 3!

Many thanks to Tritrie Games for the copy of the game, it’s very much appreciated.

Let’s Play – Curious Expedition 2 – Early Access

My first experience with Curious Expedition 2 was during the Steam Game Festival: Spring Edition. Thanks to the developers Maschinen-Mensch, I now have the opportunity to play the full Early Access game!

Curious Expedition 2 is a roguelike expedition simulator, an adventure game with board game like elements, and a bit of a story generator. Developed by a small team, this game is shaping up to be great, and it is already tonnes of fun!

I have never played the first Curious Expedition but from what I can see, they have taken everything everyone loved about the first game and developed it further, and I am looking forward to jumping in further and seeing where my journey takes me.

Early access is available to everyone on Steam now!

Let’s Play – Virginia

Virginia has been on my radar for a while despite not really knowing anything about it. I knew it was short, I knew it was a narrative game, I knew it was unique, and that is it!

In Virginia we play as FBI Special Agent Anna Tarver, while she takes on a missing persons case, but that isn’t all there is to it.

Stylistically I have never played anything like it. The stills from the game didn’t attract me at all so I was in love with how much I liked the art style when I actually started playing. Not to mention the music. There were lots of things I admired about this game, but yet I am still not sure I liked it. Join me on this first person, boldly edited, expressive, strange, trip.

Let’s Play – Erica

In my whole time of covering the PS Plus games, this is only the second game I have done a complete series of, following What Remains of Edith Finch.

Erica is an FMV mystery thriller, and in classic narrative game style you get to make choices that determine the outcome of your story.

I have only played through once and am considering another play-through, as I really don’t feel like the story resolved at all. Perhaps another play-through will give another perspective and some more answers. Let me know what you think!

Let’s Play – Portal

I managed to go 13 years without getting this game spoiled. Pretty impressive.

I am not a fan of first person games but I knew this game was a classic and when I picked it up extremely cheap on Steam I knew I had to play it.. if for any reason for the history lesson.

As it turns out.. I probably would have benefited from some extra context.

Everyone else – Portal is such a fun game! It’s so funny!

Me – This is the most stressful thing I’ve ever done in my life. Let’s just forget Portals exist, do everything wrong and micro analyse every little thing.

I can’t even put it any other way.. my play-through sucks. However, now I feel much better equipped to attempt Portal 2!

Let’s Play – What Remains of Edith Finch

What Remains of Edith Finch was the first full play-through I did of a free PS Plus game since I started covering the monthly games on my channel.

It was already on my radar but playing through the first story had me sold. And it kept getting better.

This is another game that I would like to recommend playing through yourself before watching any other play-throughs, as I believe that would really enhance your experience. If not though, my play-through is here and I had a great time. The game really delivered and had me thinking for days. I couldn’t be more satisfied with what I took away from this story.

Also, my first full play-through with my full new set up! Much better than the old headset I used to use.

Let’s Play – Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4

Marvel’s Spider-Man PS4 was my first time recording an open world game. And also probably my last.

As a massive MCU fan I was extremely exited for this game. I pre-ordered and decided I was going to cover the game on my channel. In hindsight, I probably would have been better off just playing it in my own time, but that’s a lesson learned. See.. I am a procrastinator.

Approximately 2 years later I finally completed my play-through. The game really ramped up in the final third. Admittedly, this is not my best series. It does, however, witness my evolution from recording and editing everything on my PS4 console, to getting a proper microphone and capture card, and also upgrading from Microsoft Paint to Gimp for my thumbnails.

Let’s Play – The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is a short, free, prequel to Life is Strange 2.

I played Life is Strange before I started YouTubing. It is a prime example of a game that I wished I had recorded so I could have shared my thoughts and looked back on the experience. So when this popped up on the PS Store I had to give it a go.

I still haven’t gotten around to Life is Strange: Before the Storm or Life is Strange 2, but they are on the list. For now, this was a lovely little experience that I am glad I played.

Let’s Play – The Vanishing of Ethan Carter – Abandoned

What initially started as a Let’s Play unfortunately got abandoned.

This is a very important statement – I do not do horror. This game started out so well. I was so impressed by the detective sections and the puzzles. It felt so great to play. Then came the moment. A moment that scarred me to this very day. The game isn’t technically a horror but I felt like I couldn’t continue.

I do want to say that it is worth a watch. The game did so many things well. If it had continued how it started it probably would have been one of my favorite games. Instead, it was my first failed Let’s Play. In case you haven’t noticed.. I am a top class wimp. I still sometimes re-watch the end of my play-through, just for shits and giggles.
