Final Fantasy II - The Tower's Not Really *That* Tall


It's been nearly five months since we last visited this game. And last time, we were plagued by horrible technical difficulties that pretty much prevented streaming from occurring at all — like, diagnostics said we were pulling 10kbps downstream, forget upstream. So we're still climbing the Ultima Tower!

Tune in tonight at 9pm ET as we return to Final Fantasy II!

Holding Court - Batman: Arkham Asylum - Session 5


Now Ivy's got the TITAN. The island is covered in giant, killer plants. And we only have a little bit of antidote, because said plants wrecked the backup Batcave before the equipment could synthesize more.

Holding Court - Batman: Arkham Asylum - Session 4


Well, I've fought the first successful results of Joker's TITAN project, who kept me busy long enough for him to escape. Now, I'm relying on Poison Ivy to help me work toward an antidote. Doesn't that sound like a great idea?

Thursday Throne - Giving Assassin's Creed Another Shot


Okay, so the conclusion of Tales of Monkey Island's gonna have to be delayed a bit. I'm not really sure what I have that could work as a one-off, though (that I don't want to save for other nights). So, since this one is technically an in-progress game on Thursdays, I thought I'd give it another try. It's been a while. My last attempts have been successful. That always seems to change when it comes time to do it live, though...

But, since I don't really have anything else lined up to do tonight, the show might be quite brief this week. Fingers crossed that's not the case, though!

Join us tonight at 9pm ET as we attempt Assassin's Creed once again!

Holding Court - Batman: Arkham Asylum - Session 2


Hey, sorry I missed yesterday! It was not a good day.

The Joker allowed himself to be captured as part of a ruse to throw Arkham Asylum into chaos...which he succeeded in quite handily. There's lots of dead guards now, and Commissioner Gordon has been captured.

I also spent way too much time trying to get at a thing I couldn't reach, because I didn't realize this game was quite as Metroid/vania as it is — I didn't expect to be able to backtrack nearly so much, and so assumed that anything I could see, I could get at with what I had on me, or with something I would soon acquire. Nope! So sorry for that lull. I won't trap myself so this time...though I'll still totally spend a lot of time meticulously exploring the environment.

Holding Court - Batman: Arkham Asylum


Arkham Asylum remains under lockdown, its staff at the mercy of the rampaging inmates.

The Scarecrow is in charge now, and it's never a good time when the inmates are running the asylum. Only BATMAN can set things right and return order to the orderlies.

Holding Court - Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches - Session 2


Not satisfied simply knowing who Delilah is, Daud decided to make for Brigmore Manor and confront the witches in person. To get there, though, he needed a boat, and to get that boat, he needed to break Lizzy Stride, the leader of the Dead Eels Gang, out of prison. Of course, things hadn't gone well for her gang in her absence; one of her underlings got delusions of grandeur and took over, and the rival gang, the Hatters, stole the engine coil from the riverboat. Retrieving it is yet another task that falls to Daud.

Holding Court - Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall - Session 2


After his job for Burrows, Daud is visited by the Outsider, telling him his suspicions are correct — this wasn't just another assassination. The consequences will be real. What will he do about it? Also, the Outsider's final gift: a mystery. Delilah.

Months passed. Eventually, he learned of a ship bearing that name, belonging to a whaling company. He infiltrated the processing plant, interrogated the boss, and learned that the ship was named and formerly owned by Barrister Timsh, a man who profited on the confiscation of property from those who had been accused of bearing the plague. He is in a feud with his niece, however, and she has agreed to aid Daud for a price. This is where we rejoin the story today...

Holding Court - Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall


I overslept! Whoops~

Yesterday, I beat the original story with a low-chaos (Good) ending. But there's still DLC stories to pursue! The Knife of Dunwall has the player taking on the role of Daud, the notorious assassin who killed the Empress. I don't really know what all will be involved in his story — if it'll start from roughly the same time as Corvo's, or if it won't be until after that. We did discover his jobs ledger, so that's probably a fair indication of who we'll be after, but beyond that...

I'm gonna start broadcasting just as soon as I get everything set up, so tune in and I should be on in just a few!

Holding Court - Dishonored - Session 8


Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!

The arc of the story up to this point was somewhat predictable, though certainly well-written. Even the twist, while gut-wrenching, was not unexpected. But I'm really curious where they'll be taking it from here. I mean, Corvo's motivations are pretty clear, but the arc that will carry him there, I don't know.

Lord Regent Hiram Burrows and his right-hand man are unconscious in his bedchambers. As are several other guards around the grounds. I have an audio recording of Burrows confessing his nefarious deeds, and his minister of propaganda is ready to aid me by broadcasting it to the populace. But there's still so much stuff I need to loot!

Holding Court - Dishonored - Session 6


Like I said in last night's post, yesterday kinda sucked, so I was unable to Hold Court. But everything's looking good for me to come back today!

Last time, I kidnapped the royal physician, bribed him to find more information on our next target: one Lady Boyle, there being three of that name. As luck would have it, there is a masquerade ball at the Boyle estate this very evening. It is my task to infiltrate, ascertain the identity of the correct lady, and eliminate her. Corvo is certainly equal to this task. Myself? It'll probably take some save-scumming. :B
