Ranneko Plays Too Many Games – Channel Update 2017-04-21

It’s been a while since I posted, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy. In fact, right now I have new videos on my channel every single day. Unfortunately, it has proven… difficult to post regularly on the site because my update system wasn’t really intended to cope with this kind of volume. Plus some of my regular series have gone on long enough that it is difficult to avoid repeating myself. The plan from this point is to weekly summary posts so regular readers can keep up with at least the broad strokes.

The current schedule is:

Saturday: Syfro Saturdays – Something involving my good friend Syfro
Sundays: Ranowned Explorers: International Society
Monday and Friday: Pillars of Ranternity
Tuesday and Thursday: Torment: Tides of Ranmenera
Wednesday: The Ranless Sea: Zubmariner

Syfro Saturdays

Kicking off Syfro Saturdays is a relatively unusual piece, normally this will Syfro and I playing a game cooperatively. We already have done this before with Pit People. However, Syfro recently skipped out on a potential recording day because he was attending a game jam. He and his team ended up producing this in a weekend and I thought it would be interesting to give it a go.

Ranowned Explorers: International Society

I am still getting to grips with Renowned Explorers. It turns out that it is much harder than the relatively cartoonish art initially implies and I need to start over again. I love the way non-violent approaches are baked into the combat system.

Pillars of Ranternity

I recently started on the expansion for Pillars of Eternity. The White March, which adds a frozen north section full of tough enemies, new characters and a bunch of quests. The new characters help to ensure that there is a premade recruitable character for every single class. I just recruited the rogue, aka The Devil of Caroc and I thought it would be fun to try a double rogue party.

Torment: Tides of Ranmenera

With the release of the full game, Torment Thursdays have changed into Torment: Tides of Ranmenera, i.e. a let’s play of the full game. I have rolled up my character for this run which is an Intelligent Nano Who Brandishes a Silver Tongue. I also picked up Scan Thoughts and am slowly but surely trying to finish every single sidequest in Sagus Cliffs. This week I am focusing primarily on a combination of Loss-of-Self and a boy and his levy.

Ranless Sea: Zubmariner

Ranless Sea is drawing inexorably towards the conclusion, but like any run of Sunless Sea it takes longer than you might expect. I have kitted myself out with the biggest baddest ship with the biggest baddest guns and now almost nothing is a threat to me. Now I truely can explore the bottom of the Unterzee without fear and I am enjoying trouncing the things I once feared.
