Thursday Throne - Tales of Monkey Island - Session 2 (really)

First off, sorry for missing Holding Court today. I failed at sleeping last night. Now, on with Thursday Throne...


Last time I posted that we were gonna do Tales of Monkey Island, it turned out that Rose was super-sick and wouldn't be able to make it. But we're all clear tonight to continue with chapter 2!

Join us tonight at 9pm ET for the continued adventures of Guybrush Threepwood!

Holding Court - Dishonored - Session 4


I am way too meticulous for playing this game. :P The story has progressed from the end of the High Overseer mission to the beginning of the Pendleton Brothers mission. But I will find all the things!

I'll be Holding Court at 2pm ET with more Dishonored!

Holding Court - Dishonored - Session 3


Holding Court is back! And it's starting in about 10 minutes!

When last we left our plucky hero, he was skulking around the High Inquisitor's place rendering everybody unconscious. Maybe accidentally killed one guy.

Join me at 2pm ET for more Dishonored!

Thursday Throne Marathon - Zelda Race


I just discovered that there's a randomizer for A Link to the Past, and that it's used frequently for races, cuz if speedrunners go at the basic game head-to-head, you're going to be watching multiple almost-identical runs, and that's just not interesting. It's more fun if the players are having to figure things out on their own.

Now, I'm not a speedrunner, and I don't think I know anybody who is for this game, but I played it a bunch when I was a kid, and still remember a good chunk, so I thought scrambling it and racing it would still be pretty fun! My friend Brie's gonna be racing against me; her channel's over here, so you can watch us go head-to-head. This is gonna be a long one.

The action starts tonight at 9pm ET!

Thursday Throne - Tales of Monkey Island - Session 2


Last week, we got marooned on an island where the wind is always blowing inland, captured a built-by-committee ship, solved the mystery of the wind, and set sail to find Elaine, LeChuck, and all the stuff that was happening before things went south.

Tune in tonight at 9pm ET as we continue Tales of Monkey Island!

The Throne Room Remains Quiet

My voice hurts. I could run a silent stream, but where's the fun in that? But yeah, I think I've caught something. Don't think I'll be Holding Court until that gets better.

Court is not in Session Today

I've got some important stuff I need to take care of today, so unless that stuff takes miraculously little time, I will not be Holding Court today. Shouldn't be anything stopping me tomorrow, though!

Tesla Effect - Session 2


Tex has suffered amnesia and forgotten the last seven years of his life. According to Louie and Zack, he's been an asshole. According to Clint and Rook, he's been a fantastic customer. There's some new faces on the street, a new police chief, and a dead PI. Mysteries are piling themselves up, and Tex has found himself following several trails at once. Sometimes, a guy just can't catch a break.

Tune in tonight at 9pm ET as we continue Tesla Effect!

Holding Court - Dishonored - Session 2


Yesterday, I was arrested, busted out of prison, escaped into the sewers, met up with a group of loyalists, was contacted by some sort of supernatural being, and then departed on my first job for the loyalists.

I'm rather liking the mechanics here so far. I've not done a great job of not being spotted, but I'm starting to get better at it. It's at least somewhat forgiving in that respect, so I don't feel entirely out of my depth while I'm still figuring it out.

Tune in today at 2pm ET for more Dishonored!

Thursday Throne - Tales of Monkey Island


Look out, LeChuck! Here comes Guybrush Threepwood's glowing sword of hot monkey vengeance!

I...don't really know a whole lot about Telltale's sequels to the Monkey Island series. I loved Secret of Monkey Island and LeChuck's Revenge, though, and while not everything from Telltale has made the best first impression on me, most of it did grow on me. This series of short episodes comes with Rose's recommendation, as well, so I'm sure this'll be a good time!

Join us tonight at 9pm ET as we begin Tales of Monkey Island!

Holding Court - Dishonored



Yes, he's killed the Empress! I'll see you beheaded for this, Corvo.

In a dystopian, techno-fantasy Victorian England, you are the Empress' bodyguard, a foreigner, framed for her murder. Saved from the gallows by a group of nobles, they tell you that you can regain your lost honor by doing some of their dirty work. Your only purpose in life now is to fulfill your vendetta.

Getting started a little late again today. Heck, I'm putting this post up around the time I usually aim to start. That's a terrific sign, isn't it?

Join me at 2:30pm ET as I begin Dishonored!

Holding Court - Portal 2 - Session 2


I'm a little late getting started today, so this'll be a little late getting started, too. I can't really play a game like this while holding a sandwich. :B

The game began with me waking up in a crumbling factory, finding my way around, replacing the foreman, and then falling into the old lab, buried far below, and sealed off for reasons that are not yet entirely clear.

Tune in today at 2:30pm ET for more Portal 2!

Holding Court - Portal 2


On the other side of Her chamber is the sealed off place — the place they didn't want nobody to find. And that's where we're going.

Everybody knows Portal, right? It's a first-person, physics-based puzzle game whose primary mechanic is your ability to connect two arbitrary points in your game world via portals. I've been meaning to play this for a whiiiiile now. This seems like a prime opportunity to get around to it.

Tune in today at 2pm ET as I begin Portal 2!

Valkyria Chronicles - Session 6


More history-inspired superweaponry! Last time, it was the Dora 800mm ultra-heavy railway gun, which we defeated by knocking a bridge out from under it, sending it tumbling into the ravine below.

Holding Court - For the Frog the Bell Tolls - Session 3


Well, yesterday got cut a little short by my modem/router being a butt, and then the game decided to crash off-stream, and I'm not exactly sure when I last saved...whoops. I don't think it had been that long, though. To recap, though, I rescued the townspeople from the castle, learned the location of the gold mine, and the foreign trader lent me his ship to visit Brown Sugar Island, where Nantendo HQ is located. When the stream got cut short, I was attempting to curry *rimshot* favor with a doctor in the company cafeteria.

Join me at 2pm ET as I continue For the Frog the Bell Tolls!
