I finished that Kingdom Hearts supercut like a month ago, but after the Kingdom Hearts subreddit rejected it and I couldn’t find any other good place to drop a link, I just kind of forgot to post it to my own online demesne until just now. So, uh, here’s that:
The Kingdom Hearts run has now finished recording and editing individual episodes, but getting the supercut together is going to take a lot of time. In the meantime, here’s Monster Prom.
I’ve kind of dropped off posting the videos as they come out in favor of posting these supercuts, which I’m going through for the backlog right now, where I take a bunch of videos and cut it down to just the best stuff. Probably also going to do some more traditional supercuts at some point (Requiem has suggested “Chamomile is incredulous about Freudian theory” as a good subject for one, which will probably happen once we have enough material).
The entire let’s play series was worth it for this episode title.
I’m assuming these video links are actually working. The videos are scheduled to go public but at the time of writing they’re still private. I’ll probably forget to check on these posts before they go live, so you guys will get to determine empirically whether I got it right the first time.
I’ve been playing through the first Professor Layton game on mobile lately. It’s charming and the puzzles are, for whatever reason, much more entertaining than usual puzzle games are for me. The premise is that Professor Layton is a master puzzle solver and invited to a village where that is a skill that people care about, so he and his apprentice Luke head out and become embroiled in mysteries. The funny thing is that even Professor Layton seems to get sick of all the puzzles after a while. You’ll be trying to investigate a murder and a kidnapping and someone will be all “hey, before I get out of the way of this door leading to the north side of town, can you help me solve this puzzle?” and you can tell from the dialogue that even Professor Layton, the guy who insists he’s not a detective and just loves puzzle, is only refraining from decking this motherfucker because that would be too uncouth for a true gentleman.
In which I remember how to embed video links.
I’m trying to think of an intro for this video, and all I can think of is a reference to obscure song lyrics. I refuse to sink to the level of Kingdom of Loathing.
Trying to write a wacky comedy intro line for a game with some of the best wacky comedy writing I’ve ever seen feels like setting myself up for a bad comparison.
We stagger into the final stages of World of Horror with low health, low sanity, and two extra scoops of doom in our cereal. Everything turns out fine.
