Ranneko Plays Full Throttle Week – Channel Update 2018-02-09

This week was basically the last of any game footage I had recorded before this Barcelona trip. Heck I recorded Full Throttle Remastered with Syfro back in November, there have just been a few delays with editing.

As I commented during the series, I never actually finished Full Throttle as a child. I got very close, but I just couldn’t find the right rock to kick. It felt really good to finally finish the story after all this time, but I was surprised to find just how short the game is. Despite the compulsory combat section, it only took about 3 hours to finish. To be fair, we were both already somewhat familiar with the game and the puzzles, but neither of us had played it in years. I wonder how concerned the developers were about that when the game was released.

I would also love to hear what you think of these release model, a single game run from start to finish at one episode per day. It would work much better with a stream first setup, which I have been considering using, but it does make collaborations harder to organise. At least if I want the entire series to be done collaboratively.

I will be continuing with this significantly altered schedule for at least another week, because, though I do return home today, it will take some time before I have another opportunity to record more games and edit them.

Edit: Well, as of Friday morning, the feedback is pretty clearBut this does leave further questions:

  • Is it the game? Is Full Throttle just too old or are my watchers uninterested in Point and Clicks
  • Is it the delivery method? Too many days in a row?
  • Is it the team? Do they not like the combo of me and Syfro?

Given my recording circumstances, I guess we will see, because next week will be SteamWorld Dig 2 week.

The last week’s releases were:

Saturday: Ranneko and Syfro Take a Royal Tumble
Sunday: RanWorld Dig 2
Monday-Friday: Ranneko and Syfro Go Full Throttle

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

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
