Holding Court - Mass Effect - Session 11


The Normandy is grounded. What do now?

Also, this is going to be my last stream for at least a week — I'm about to fly out to Seattle, and then roadtrip back. It'll be a fun trip!

Join me in just a few minutes (@2pm ET) as I continue Mass Effect!

Valkyria Chronicles - Session 10

Early Throne Special - FTL: Faster Than Light

Oh hey, so I hadn't announced this here before, I don't think; Saturdays are gonna be double-headers now! Gonna do one show in the early afternoon, and another in the evening at the regular time. Madness! Today...


We bring this out from time to time as a one-off, and there's two reasons we keep returning to it: it's really good, and we've never actually beaten it.

Join us at 3pm ET as we make another attempt at FTL: Faster Than Light!

Thursday Throne - Assassin's Creed - Session 8


Y'know, playing through it again, I'm noticing how a lot of this game kind of blends together. Like, there's a general progressing feeling of unraveling a mystery, of finding a few answers and even more questions, but it doesn't leave a lot of remarkable milestones along the way.

Last time, we assassinated a man who claimed to be consolidating power in Acre for the purpose of establishing self-governance in the city — though that would likely have been a puppet council controlled by the Templars. Meanwhile, in the real world, Lucy confided that Abstergo was a Templar-operated company, and that while their goals were noble, their lack of ethics was terrifying.

Holding Court - Mass Effect - Session 8


After yesterday's post, a scene came to mind of Joker standing and exclaiming, "Mein Kommandant, I can walk!"

We've come face-to-face with Saren. He's laid out his motives. He's deluded.

Also, Ashley died, oh noes.

Holding Court - Mass Effect - Session 6


I'm continuing to explore the galaxy, paying little heed to what the main story would have me do. I'll do it if it's on my way; the fate of all life can wait.

Final Fantasy II - Stuck Inside of Paramekia...


...with the Altea blues again.

Last time, we recovered Cid's airship, and flew it straight to Paramekia high in the mountains. But we'd only just gotten there when I had to sign off, and I couldn't leave! So I had to savestate.

Thursday Throne - Assassin's Creed - Session 7


It seems I spoke too soon about the villains with messianic villains — the merchant king only sought revenge for a perceived slight. Oh well, he's dealt with now. But always more people to kill.

Holding Court - Mass Effect - Session 4


Space is big, and I've only just begun to explore it. Also, I find it weird that, with the exception of the Citadel itself, there is nothing else on that side of the galaxy.

Holding Court - Mass Effect - Session 3


Unsurprisingly, the Council dismissed eyewitness testimony, being the only evidence available, against their top agent, Saren. However, we now have some actual hard evidence, brought to us by Tali'zorah, a young quarian on pligrimage. We have also been joined by Garrus, a C-SEC officer assigned to the investigation who felt there were still things left uncovered in the brief time he was given, and Wrex, a krogan mercenary with goals related to our own. Now, we continue to dig into this mystery ourselves, while the ambassador of humankind again petitions the council with our newfound proof of Saren's treachery.

Holding Court - Mass Effect - Session 2


So, yesterday got started quite a bit later than I'd intended, due to me discovering how many mods I wanted to install before I started. So now the game is really pretty and I can play it with a controller. Yay!

Also, since all that work is out of the way, I should be able to begin approximately on time today.

I'm currently exploring the Citadel and talking with everybody. That is an activity that will probably continue for a while.

Holding Court - Mass Effect


My sleep schedule is corrected, at least for the time being, meaning I can begin Holding Court once again!

So, when last I did, I tried to play Jade Empire, but the PC version was just so unstable, I couldn't play for very long without it crashing. But hey, I've got other BioWare games at my disposal! Enter Mass Effect, with the same damn story that every BioWare game has, only now in space and not Star Wars. I poke fun because I love, though — they manage to make something really enjoyable out of all their games, in spite of their mass of similarities.

So join me at 2pm ET (about half an hour from now, if you're that on-point with reading this blog) as I begin Mass Effect!

Thursday Throne - Assassin's Creed - Session 6


I-I killed a man...

Well, several, really. I mean, I'm an assassin, it's kind of in the job description.

It's interesting how many powerful people seem to have a messiah complex.

Thursday Throne - Assassin's Creed - Session...Let's Call It 5

Alright, a little bit of newswise stuff first: as you may have noticed, I haven't been Holding Court this week. It's not cancelled, I'm still planning to play through stuff. Not Jade Empire, though, because it was too unstable to be playable. I am kinda feeling the BioWare, though, so maybe Mass Effect? We'll see.

Anyway, personal business, yadda yadda, it'll be back when it's back. Probably next week, but no guarantees.




O frabjous day, Caillou Calais~! The game actually seems to work again! Apparently, installing it fresh after the reformat avoided all the problems it was having before.

So, last time! ...I didn't really get any story progress done, heh. I returned to Masyaf after the job I completed aaaaages ago, flagging the next set of tasks, and then I just wandered around the Kingdom for a long time, trying to collect flags and kill Templars. Which I did, a lot! I'll probably actually proceed with story stuff tonight, though. Maybe derp around the city some first. We'll see.

Tune in tonight at 9pm ET as we continue Assassin's Creed!
