Amnesia: The Dark Descent - Session 3

Tonight at 7pm ET begins what is likely to be our final session of Amnesia: The Dark Descent! Tune in to the Radio PSI TwitchTV channel to see the riveting, horrifying conclusion!

The quick recap: last session, we encountered the only friendly face we've seen so far, and what an ugly face he was. Agrippa, chained husk of a man that he is, has proved quite helpful so far, pointing us toward the fragments of the shattered orb, which we will need to repair if we wish to oppose Alexander and survive. When we left off, we had recovered half the orb; the other half remains to be collected.

If you've been following us, you may have noticed the absence of last week's Alan Wake video. Don't worry, it didn't hit copyright issues again; I've just been trying to figure out a new way of recording and uploading them. When I tell XSplit to record locally, it saves a single video file for the entire episode's duration; I go to upload that file, YouTube won't render it higher than 480p, even though I'm recording at 720p. However, if I download the videos from Twitch, they're broken up into smaller chunks, but YouTube will display those at 720p just fine, although they look muddier than the file I recorded locally. This is kinda frustrating, and I hope to get it figured out sooner rather than later. If anybody has any ideas as to why this may be happening, please let me know.

Alan Wake - Session 3

Alan Wake continues tonight at 7pm ET on the RadioPSI TwitchTV channel.

A brief refresher, since it's been a while since our last session: Alan attempted to rendezvous with his wife's kidnapper at the Bright Falls coal mine at night, but he never showed. The next morning, the kidnapper called, directing Alan to meet him somewhere else. Alan was in the middle of his escape from the mine compound when we left off.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent - Session 2 now on YouTube

So, my weekend (and the rest of the week following) have been so busy, I completely forgot to archive the videos from Twitch and post them to YouTube. I have now fixed that! If you missed our second night of Amnesia: The Dark Descent, sorry your gratification isn't quite so instant this time around, but it is now available.

Things progressed smoothly and disturbingly in the game. Outside of the game, however, we had a bit of a mishap...right about the two-hour mark — where the video segments break — my microphone mount decided to topple over, taking a chunk of my desk with it. So, the first some-odd minutes of the second segment are spent trying to repair this.

Also, it seems my fix the previous show for the webcam's autofocus issues didn't stick this week, and I didn't realize it until too late. I'll make a note of that and make sure it's set up correctly before the show in the future.

Saturday, we continue with Alan Wake. Amnesia returns — and possibly concludes! — on the 17th.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent - Session 2

We're back! Did you miss us?

October's over, but...well, we didn't finish any of our October games. So who cares that Halloween is in the past? There's more scary stuff coming up on Throne of Games.

Tonight at 7pm ET, we continue Amnesia: The Dark Descent. As before — and even more strongly now — this game comes with a MATURE CONTENT WARNING. Things will soon be going from spooky and startling to downright disturbing, as I understand it. Not for the faint of heart. (But if you work out and eat garlic, you should be fine.)

As usual, we won't be watching the Twitch chat; if you want to join the discussion live, and you have an IRC client, click here. If you don't have an IRC client, click here instead.
