Starmongoose - Let's Play Fire Emblem Path of Radiance!
« on: July 12, 2015, 05:08:16 AM »
Hey guys! Well, I'm pretty pleased to announce that I'm starting my own Let's Play channel on youtube, and I'm kicking it off with one of my favourite games.



Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance!

It's a bit daunting, putting myself out there and making video content, but I actually had a lot of fun doing it. Though I need to iron out some of the creases, I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. So without further ado, here is the link to the first episode!

My Channel (Shitty Cover art and all, shh it's a placeholder) = (Clicky!)
The Full Playlist (For Marathoning!) (Clicky!)
Episode 1 : Beating Bandits (Clicky!)
Episode 2 : Wizarding Ways  (Clicky!)
Episode 3 : Pesky Pirates Clicky!
Episode 4 : Defying Daein Clicky!
Episode 5 : Princess Problems Clicky!
Episode 6: Burning Bridges Clicky!

So, let's talk Fire Emblem Guis.

Teehee, I would never ask for you to make a graphic for me Dice. With lots of JRPG characters in it. That's cute.

I woudn't do that, you see.

(But thanks for the Subscribe and watching it. :) It means a lot <3. You even get name dropped in the episode.)

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).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

This isn't a new game plus I'm sorry! :P Reasons listed in the video itself.

Yeah, I'll be sticking with this one. Recording was pretty fun. :) Path of Radiance is super hard to find these days, I'm glad I kept my copy. Illyana is like my favourite mage in this game, so I'll happily level her to 20/20 (if she doesn't die - I'm not resetting).

About name drop: Ironically I think it might be faster sometimes to do a Let's Play on Youtube just play and speak at the same time.  You pretty much hit the nail on the head, my posts usually take HOURS to put together and, I honestly don't mean this to brag, but I sort of set the bar annoyingly high and really no one should feel pressured to do the same (I think Klutz's LPJ has been a way better standard for a 'normal' and perfect length on these).  I do it because as a woman I made up of billions of cells, and millions of thoughts and feelings... well, and more likely because I really love gaming creativity and its ability to tell interactive stories, so I absolutely go all out.  But I think an LP video series...kinda just suits you well.  You're great for good quick observation and have some of that great off-topic "say it as it comes" dialogue.

I totally gotta ask but what program are you using to bring the A/V together?

Great initial video, I look forward to keeping track through this because I've always felt 'out of touch' with the series (certainly it's low availability doesn't  help) and I feel like a phoney saying "Awakenings was a great Fire Emblem" since i really have no comparison (besides an SNES one released like hundreds of weeks ago).  I'm sure the first video was a bit awkward to get through (it would be for me), but I think you did great.  Keep it up, this is a great idea!! :D

Thanks Dice!!! >.< I'm glad you said this suits me. I think so too, I honestly forgot I was recording at some parts and just got into talking about whatever was in my head at the time. It was pretty fun! I'm glad it was good to listen to as well.

I'm trying to be pretty explanatory as I go along as well, so it should be pretty newbie friendly. :) I'm gonna be explaining gameplay mechanics and such as we go.

As for what I'm using to record, I'm using Mishira. It's really simple for me, because all I need to do is hit record and it records my audio and video. I'll be honest though, the boyfriend does the technical side of things including editing. :P

Never heard of Mishira. I'll need to test it. Last time I did a recording, I used Fraps which isn't bad, but I wouldn't say it's the best either.

Subscribed. I've been thinking doing video Let's plays would be easier for me as well, since most of my comments in the journals are things I said to myself while playing the games and actually managed to remember.

Anyway, if I don't get around to watching your first episode tonight I will definitely do it during my "lunch break"* tomorrow

Thanks Klutz. :) <3 You're the bestest.

And you totally should. I'm having fun. It's a little more high-pressure since you're "live" in a sense, but at the same time it can be a bit more natural and better at conveying my real-life out of text personality.

If you're doing school work then I don't think you need to be ashamed of not having a job. As long as you're doing something, right? Like watching my videos. :D A very productive use of time in my opinion

I actually tried responding but then it timed out and I forgot to save my response because my internet was being shit. T___T
I'm going to be responding to it again soon!  I'm sorta surprised though, I thought RPGFan was like 'gasmic' for the SMT series :P

They probably were, then SMT x FE was announced and so all the SMT folks checked out FE:Awakening, then SMTIV sorta disappointed (that's no Nocturne boy, no Nocturne), and then the two sorta became as one (all these eugenics is kinda like demon fusing but S-ranking is like S-linking), then Persona Emblem happened and now they're just checking out on all these old games that were passed over for the latest Devil Summoner/Digital Devil Saga/Persona back when.

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.
