Let’s Play Freespace 2 – Entry 3 – Getting Nasty in the Nebula…

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Freespace 2 Review

Boooooooooooom! Love It!

Boooooooooooom! Love It!

Hey folks, welcome back to Freespace 2! This time our battle group enters the creepy yet beautiful nebula on the other side of the ancient and alien jump gate we found in the last set of missions. I’ve never seen quite a nebula like this in any other game, and it’s used for tremendous effect here. The Shivans make the most use of the confusion, but some humans do as well! Join me as I complete the missions:

Act 1, Mission 5: Mystery of the Trinity
Act 1, Mission 6: The Great Hunt

Thanks for watching, and enjoy!

Let’s Play The Last Federation – Entry 1 – Flailing About

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Last Federation Review

Chaos! Lasers! Wheee!

Chaos! Lasers! Wheee!

Hey folks, welcome to the first entry into my Let’s Play Review of The Last Federation by Arcen Games. This game just came out on Steam and I’ve been toying around with it having a grand old time. I’m going to do a series of videos because this game is massive in scope and depth. I mean seriously, it’s freaking huge in what it covers, so one video totally wouldn’t do it justice. Therefore, watch me flail about as I barely know what I’m doing in this first video, and enjoy!

Let’s Play TIE Fighter – Entry 25 – Save The Emperor! Again…and Yet Again!

This entry is part 25 of 25 in the series TIE Fighter Review

Stop Shooting at Me! I'm TRYING to Save You!

Stop Shooting at Me! I’m TRYING to Save You!

Games like TIE Fighter have been criticized by some to be too puzzle-like. While this is more true for X-Wing, it’s not something I consciously noticed TOO much in TIE Fighter…until you get to a mission like this. SEVERAL times I failed in this mission to save the kidnapped Emperor from the hands of Zaarin’s traitors, until I finally figured out the right combination of tasks to win the mission. It was insanely frustrating, but it’s not surprising as it’s the last mission in the final campaign of the base game before the expansion content, so it’s likely not meant to be that easy. Still, COME ON. Sigh. Anyway, join me on the mission:

Tour of Duty VII: Treachery at Ottega – Mission 5: Save the Emperor

Over and over again. ;) Thanks for watching, and enjoy!

Fly Missiles Fly!!

Fly Missiles Fly!!

Welcome back to my look into Freespace 2, still the best space combat game money can buy (and if you haven’t bought it yet, what are you waiting for?). In this video, I take on two more missions, culminating in the return of one of the quietest and creepiest enemies in all of space gaming, the dreaded Shivans. I also get to finally fly the Herc 2 fighter, yay! Please join me as I muscle through the following missions:

Act 1, Mission 3: The Romans Blunder
Act 1, Mission 4: A Lion at the Door

Thanks for watching, and enjoy! :)

Bye Bye Gemini...

Bye Bye Gemini…

Welcome, my friends, to Freespace 2, my all-time favorite game and still, I feel, the best space fighter combat sim you can buy. Now, this year is the game’s fifteenth anniversary, and I thought it’d be fun to add to the coverage we plan this year by going through the campaign in a new series of let’s play videos. :) I therefore hope you’ll enjoy the first two missions of the campaign:

Act 1, Mission 1: Surrender, Belisarius!
Act 1, Mission 2: The Place of Chariots

Thanks for watching! :)

It's Super Weird Flying AGAINST Gunboats...

It’s Super Weird Flying AGAINST Gunboats…

Hello friends, and welcome to my continuing coverage of TIE Fighter! In this installment, we fly the TIE Advanced on a mission to further cripple the treacherous Admiral Zaarin. Then, we find that a plot is unfolding in which the Emperor is in danger! In the next mission, Darth Vader himself joins me for our first mission in a TIE Defender (one of my favorite fighters in any space game ever) in order to make our way back to Coruscant and defend the Emperor’s life. Join me as I fly through these two missions:

Tour of Duty VII: Treachery at Ottega – Mission 3: Retribution
Tour of Duty VII: Treachery at Ottega – Mission 4: TIE Defender

I hope you enjoy these missions, and thank you for watching. :)
