The SR Let's Play thread
« on: June 12, 2016, 04:58:38 PM »
I thought it might be cool to create a thread highlighting any SR Let's Plays, particularly ongoing ones. In the WindlessZephyr thread, I would post a few thoughts on the latest episode, which would help create a bit of discussion that proved useful, so a dedicated thread for that kind of discussion seems like a good idea. First, I'll just link a few Let's Play series' that I know of.


Windless Zephyr
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLr7IZN94_WgsUkJ1AN3Ug6sJ8QA3fZ7fO

Longest running SR series so far. Semi-active. Currently WZ is out of action due to PC issues. :(

DavionFuxa

Not an active series, but this was still a good one worth watching.

Game Hoard Game
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3jdAUrE6JKFqfvdaEqgtADCVPeFmv9YQ

A recently started series, but very good. Featuring full run-length videos.

Ethervil
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2fCsHy3Q-g7NQLBAaWIvassauoZX2YHj

This is one of the few long-running series' that I've yet to watch.

InkEyes
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLR4EnWvm2EEdCbGs_R7yRh_c9-9x1W5TT

A recently started series that I haven't caught up with yet, but looks pretty good.


Feel free to post any SR Let's Play video links here, starting a discussion, highlighting any problems noticed in a vid, or whatever. I'll update the list of Let's Players over time.

Not a let's play, per se. More of a look at/entertainment. But I guess mine qualifies.

I guess speaking of which, my computer's functional again, so my SR series will start back up in the next few days. Still has work to contend with, after all.

Well, in honor of your return, perhaps we'll release a small content patch.*

The re-return of the Zeph!

Warm Up Chaos

Chaos? Yep, another creator run. A pretty valiant run this, after being away from the game for a while and also taking Compact Molecules, which reduces your DPS a bit too much at the moment. Blunderbuss is taken, bit of an unusual weapon, although fairly powerful, I think. You don't actually get a range boost for the Blunderbuss when taking range boosting gear, which is something I've got to look into. Pretty much all mains should get this range boost, I think. Zeph survives some pretty crazy rooms before eventually succumbing to an even crazier than crazy room.  Good warm up run.


A twitch streamer called DarkTwinge has been playing some SR lately, too. Very good analytical commentary. I wasn't lucky enough to catch any of the live streams, though.

Yeah, I'm watching the recording of Darktwinges first go at the game...

It always entertains the heck outta me to watch someone that's playing this for the first time.  Particularly when they meet up with a boss or some "heavy" enemy of some sort.  The "OMG" reactions, that sort of thing...

I keep meaning to do a playthrough video of my own, I keep not getting around to it.  Would basically be "reckless impatient Hard mode" if I did that.

Okay, one other thing:  REALLY need to change the default buttons for the slow/sprint functions.  They shouldn't be on the blasted analog sticks.  Nothing should be on the analog sticks.

WZ, Episode 47: Shields

A Liliputian run, don't see too many of those. Pretty standard flame tank run so far apart from that. One oddity about shops. There are certain items that disappear if you re-enter. Shield Tech is the example from this vid. Presumably that's because it's a kind of a probation, but since it's not actually a proper probation it really shouldn't be doing that. Also, probations....gah, gotta overhaul those at some point. Note for Zeph if he's reading: that Incinerator/Flamethrower switching bug has been fixed in our internal build. :)

Edit: actually, I suppose Shield Tech does have to disappear, otherwise you could just go back once the floor is clear and grab it.......hmmm, not sure if these probation style items should even be appearing in shops.

Those are the more "questy" items that have made me avoid ever opening a locked chest until I've cleared a level completely.

......I hadn't thought about this particular exploit before.

Hmm.


Also, yes, probation items of any sorts shouldn't be in shops.  Why they're in there in the first place, I cant even guess.

The problem is remembering where they are later.

...was.... was that SUPPOSED to happen? 

I cant tell if that bugged out or not.  There were a lot of things wrong with that last bit.
