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?

  • I'm thinking Monday again. Maybe Wednesday if something comes up. I'll try to keep you guys posted.

    Good, it'll be nice to have a convenient list of everyone I need to ban.

  • I'm annoyed that my Internet was busted when you did the Maniac Mansion playthrough so you can count me in for watching a Zak McKracken playthrough. I just hope that I'll be able to watch via my PS3.

  • Tomorrow's looking good for Zak McKracken. Since I've got all the technical difficulties worked out (unless you guys want me to try and have my mic going), I should be able to get going much earlier. I'm thinking around 8 pm here, which will be 2 am GMT.

  • Sounds good, I guess it's going to be another late night for me tomorrow.

  • So...it's 8 pm and I just got back from dinner. Are you guys up for Zak McKracken?

    I totally would have been, but your 8pm is my 2am, and I have to work to fund my extravagant lifestyle. The private jet and magnums of Krug aren't going to pay for themselves you know.

  • I'll have to see if I can swing next week's game for the afternoon so it'll be evening over there. Maybe this Friday, since we're not playing D&D this week? The last two have been a lot of fun and I'd love for you to be able to make one of these things.

    So, Zak McKracken's done. I went into this project not wanting to use a walkthrough, and while I had to cheat a tiny bit at Maniac Mansion, I'd say I did pretty damn good.

    Not so for Zak McKracken. I broke early and often. It was still a lot of fun, but playing a game like this with a guide and without a guide are two totally different experiences. With so many locations, a cost for moving between them, and the looming fear of an unbeatable game always present, I totally wussed out.

    Yeah, I know, I'd never make it in a King's Quest game.

    But I did have a lot of fun! Thanks again to everyone who came and watched! I'm thinking either Friday or next Monday for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. See you guys then!

  • I totally think you should play King's Quest. They really aren't so bad, and AGDI has made their fan-made KQ games such that you don't get dead-ends, so I'd be up for you playing those (which also have better quality graphics and sound, plus are point-and-click.)

    I've played the KQ games. I'm sure you wouldn't really be that stuck if you had us watching... though KQ5 is a bitch, really.

    Plus, watching you die repeatedly could be highly entertaining for us all. :)

  • I'm lost. You already had the playthrough?! Gahhhhh! I thought it was 2am tonight. Please let us know when you're doing the next one and I'll be sure to make sure I have the right time and day.
