Gah! I recorded episode two but the game audio is just a wee bit too loud compared to my voice. I'm still gonna upload it just to keep the momentum going, but yeah, I'll keep an eye out for that in future. Editing now.

I know a lot of Lets Players will record their voice audio separate from the game recording so if that ends up being the case, it's just a matter of rebalancing it in post production. Not sure if that's an option for you, but I bet it's easy enough to set up.

Also, finally got around to watching the first episode and I really liked it. Loved the inclusion of gameplay tips without making it sound like a walkthrough, and the commentary itself was very entertaining!

And what the hell are bandits doing badmouthing the mercenary lifestyle?

Yeah! I totally know about the separate audio and video thing butttttt, for the moment, I'm just doing the easiest thing. I'm getting used to recording and my boyfriend is getting used to editing - so for now that's what we feel comfortable on. Of course, problems like this prop up, but I can be more vigilant when sound testing and stop that.

I'm super glad you like the first episode. ^^ Episode 2 is uploading as we speak. Everyone gets a name drop! Woo!

And I know, the hell? You murder people for a livin' dood, hardly an upstanding citizen yourself.

My Channel (Shitty Cover art and all, shh it's a placeholder) = (Clicky!)

You know i make graphic thingies from time to time... :P

But good!  I suck nut at these games, and some are just hard to find... I will play vicariously though you!
Otherwise I look forward to it!  I'm subscribed and watching as we speak!

This is probably the hardest one to find out of all the western released games (mostly due to being released late in the GameCube's life and the series still being relatively niche since it had yet to embrace the waifus/husbandos).


That said, this was (and perhaps still is) the best FE game released in the west at the time (or to date; though Fates is pretty keenly set up to take that crown either way) and a return to form of sorts over the more mechanically shallower GBA era games (namely due to the return of Skills, the improved Supports system (one that I really wish they'd reimplement since you didn't have to fuss over keeping certain characters joined at the hip), the start of the end of the Weapon Weight mechanic and the return of items that influenced stat growth (not that they do that much and you need to be in NG+ to use them anyways (you are playing this on NG+ Star? Aren't you?))).

Anyways, here's hoping you stick to this one (though admittedly, I haven't made much progress in WA2 in a while either) Mongoose. Also, I dare you to make use of Lucia on every available chapter after you recruit her (or failing that, get Ilyana to 20/20 and use Rexbolt).

Agreed. Path of Radiance is excellent in terms of story, gameplay, and characters. The only real criticism most people had was that the battle animations were pretty boring and repetitive.

I unfortunately won't be able to watch your all of your playthrough, but I'll watch when I'm able since I haven't played this one probably since Radiant Dawn was released.

No worries Jimmy. :) It's all good! Watch as much or as little as you want. <3 It's not like I give cake to the people who watch all the episode or anything. (OR DO I?)

Episode 2 is now live guys! It's a pretty fun one when you get past the audio problems! Clicky!

Unfortunately, PoR tried to use the motions and effects that FEs 4 and 5 used but those were 2D games and this was IntSys's first stab at a 3D game. They've gotten substantially better since, but you still need to play through this game at least once to be able to turn off battle animations.


Whoa there's cake?!

No! I explicitly said there was NO cake! We're all outta cake!

The cake is a lie. :(
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Only two episodes in and I already want to put Awakening back in my 3DS. Your passion is very infectous.

I request more high-pitch reading for a female character! x)

So far so great though, I love the combination gameplay and 'haps' commentary.  I love the small touches where you edit bits, the dancers, the music, the moods, the "shit" that happens.  All golden.  Keep it up, I love listening in!!!

I also just want to add I'm loving the characters, mostly because I love Senri Kita's use of very peculiar palettes (and his complete neglect of pale or drab colours one might expect from a medieval title).  I mean Ike and Misty are basically composed of primary colours, or Rolf who looks like he dipped his head in a bucket of highlighter fluid.
