Ranneko Plays in Barcelona – Channel Update 2018-02-02

More changes in series due to the business trip are creeping in. Next week will be a fairly radical departure from the normal schedule and I am not entirely sure how long this will last, because I don’t anticipate being able to record and edit as soon as I get home. A lot of it depends on just how much recording I can get done from my hotel room using my elgato capture device.

I had hoped to do a little streaming while I was here in Barcelona, but unfortunately the hotel wifi is awful. It randomly drops out frequently and even when it works it has a tendency to drop to incredibly slow speeds. The perils of travel as wifi is primarily a checkbox when it really needs a full scale.

The last week’s releases were:

Thursday: Ranneko and Syfro Enter the Gungeon
Sunday: Heat Signature Challenge Runs
Monday, Wednesday, Friday: ShadowRan: Hong Kong
Tuesday: Heat Signature Hot Tips / Ranneko’s Tuesday Tips
Thursday: Ranneko and Syfro Take a Royal Tumble

After the break, more about the videos that released last week!

Pity it was still too cold to swim

Ranneko Plays in Barcelona – Channel Update 2018-01-26

I am working from Barcelona at the moment, leaving me with an odd mix of free time but low equipment. I have spent the evenings slowly editing the most of the footage I recorded before I flew out, and conveniently, my friend Syfro finished up editing the games we recorded back in Sydney. Between these two things I almost have enough to cover the gap, but it will mean some surprise changes of games.

The last week’s releases were:

Saturday: Pillars of Ranternity
Sunday: Heat Signature Challenge Runs
Monday, Wednesday, Friday: ShadowRan: Hong Kong
Tuesday: Heat Signature Hot Tips / Ranneko’s Tuesday Tips
Thursday: Ranneko and Syfro Enter the Gungeon

Indie Wonderland: Enter The Gungeon

Dodge Roll Games‘ and Devolver Digital‘s Enter The Gungeon has danced on the periphery of my awareness for a while now. People have been talking about it since late 2014, and for a long time I was sure I remembered seeing people play it in Steam Early Access. Which is actually impossibly untrue, so… My terrible excuse for a memory might have been confusing Enter The Gungeon and Nuclear Throne, but that’s neither here nor there.

Point is, I’ve been hearing about this game in whispered, misty rumors, always enough to pique my interest but never quite enough to commit to full investigation (and the fact that I was waiting for a ‘has been released from Early Access’ message that would never ever appear probably wasn’t helping). I still don’t even know what a Gungeon is. Is it, like, a gun dungeon? A dungeon for guns? A dungeon that is a gun? A gun that’s a dungeon? A dungeon full of Gungans? Had a good friend not interfered, I might never have had the opportunity to find out.

But a good friend did interfere, by giving me Enter The Gungeon as a birthday gift. And, well, here we are! If you’re as clueless as I am in matters of Gungeon as I am, let’s explore this mystery together.

(Spoiler levels: Narrative, low. Mechanical, medium.)

(Game source: Gift from a friend.)

After the break: Enter The Gungeon. The verb does little to alleviate confusion: the titular Gungeon is probably a structure, but other concepts — like a tournament or a legally binding agreement — can also be ‘entered’. What to expect, what to expect…
