    Default Let's Play: Jedi Academy

    Let's Play: Jedi Academy


    Star Wars, Jedi Academy! It's a game with jedi! Lightsabers! Kyle Katarn! What more do I need to say?

    Probably these things:

    1. I've gotten a new computer since the last Let's Play! A really nice one! I'll be trying out new things and seeing just how high I can get the recording quality. The first video isn't too great (Still an improvement over Borderlands!) but things will be going up from here, I promise.

    2. The reason the last LP died was because me and Djinn never had overlapping free time. As such, for *this* LP I'll be choosing a co-host at random from my friend's list whenever the whimsy takes me. The first episode is Jibar.

    3. Jedi Academy is a single player game, but single player commentary wierds me out, so I'm using Procaster to stream these so that the co-host can watch, and then comment on what is going on. There's a couple seconds of delay, and it does wierd things to cutscenes though. In the future I may see about editing the weirdness out, but then we'll still have missing chunks of cutscene, so I dunno. Also Procaster likes to declare random 30 second ad breaks, which is irritating.


    4. PART ONE HERE

    In this episode, we meet our Protagonist, who is given her standard issue Lightsaber and Jibar. We also meet the creepy kid who sits next to her on the bus. And her evil twin!

    Try using blogtv instead of procaster.

    Can I volunteer for a guest commentator somewhere down the line? Might be fun and I /can/ be witty if required. I hope.

    Also: Shadow, it's kinda hard to hear you during the intro sequence at least. Might want to look into boosting your mic's gain or something.

    Few things I noticed:
    Your game audio is a bit loud. It kinda drowns out your commentary. Try not to talk to much during cut scenes, it's quite distracting. If you ever find a way to record cut scenes properly, such as using a different recorder or recording with less programs up, please edit them in.

    Well, it's a lot better then most people's let's plays .

    I would like to volunteer as well - I love that game. And I can do a pretty good horrible Scottish accent.

    Boy is Rosh a nice and trustworthy dude... totally not IN YOUR FACE or anything.

    I also second the motion of you increasing your voice volume.

    (Y'know, i wonder if teamviewer4 could be used for "streaming" games to other people.)

    Unfortunately, due to the way FRAPs works, increasing my mic volume doesn't seem to change much. However, decreasing the game volume does work, and we actually figure that out about halfway through the next video.

    And here was I thinking it was because you didn't really like the game...

    Hope there was nothing plot-important in those cutscenes that didn't play properly!

    Now now, we don't know for sure yet whether or not they liked Borderlands. After all, there weren't many hints or anything suggesting something one way or the other. It's kinda inconclusive.

    It wasn't that they didn't play, it was just that there was wierd gunk on them for a few seconds. If I'm thinking correctly, you missed the scene where a giant laser hit the ship because you were busy looking at a pile of weird symbols.

    On closer inspection, I've noticed that FRAPS actually starts a new video whenever that happens. Perhaps it is related.

    Fun Fact: The Delay is ridiculous.

    RIDICULOUS.

    But yes, I certainly wouldn't mind doing some more.
    You should still investigate better streamers, in the hopes of destroying the Delay.

    Oh, and if you do commentate, you will hear an echo of yourself. It is as creepy as it sounds.

    Jedi Academy: Part One Continued

    In which our hero participates in Manye Cutscenese, and Jibar witnesses firsthand what an elegant and refined combat style I have.



    This time I told Window's Movie Maker to upload it in high definition; it seems to have worked. The sound still isn't fixed though because the entire first thing was done in one recording session.

    Thought you'd fixed the sound problem there? I couldn't hear what either of you were saying at any point in that video! (Doesn't help I'm not able to listen with headphones this time, as I did for the first one).

    Interesting. I shall definitely keep watching this. Also you might want to try using the video from fraps, and recording the audio over skype and then syncing them. That would be more work, but it would be much better quality then recording through procaster. Also this inspired me to attempt to reinstall Academy, only to find out that the disk 2 is scratched or something, so it cant finish installing.

    I'm recording through FRAPs, Jibar is talking to me via Skype.

    All Procaster does is transmit everything to the co-host so they can watch in real time. I will try those other sites you mentioned though.

    To be honest I'm a bit confused because the video doesn't end where I thought it did. Apparently I told it to cut off at exactly where Jibar says "Maybe you should turn your game volume down"

    Wow. I thought the training mission in Just Cause 2 was pretty perfunctory, but that was REALLY short!

    This LP has already done me a huge favour.

    It informed me of the fact that the female main character is, indeed, voiced by Jennifer Hale, the nice lady who performs the lead roles in Metroid Prime and Mass Effect.

    I had no idea this was the case. I may need to replay Jedi Academy now. Thanks guys.

    Okay, so, if I recall correctly, I've posted all of part one and it ends at the mission select screen.

    Now I just need some free time so I can get the next episode done...

    Though I know that the idea of having dual lightsabers is very cool, I'd suggest everyone playing this game to try out the single saber-red (strong) mode. IMHO, it makes the combats evolve from mindless frantic button pushing to a more clever, "watch your footwork" type.
