Thank you for giving me your opinion about my decision on whether or not I should do a let's play. I intended to do one on "the secret of monkey island", since (believe it or not) I've never played it before. It was going to be in the same style as Paw's let's plays (he's the headphones guy over at TGWTG / Channel Awesome) or Tyranee's let's dubs of the Ace Attorney series (over on Youtube). Since many of you said that it depends on the game, I'd like your opinion on that as well (gonna look up Gotcha Force, Raxon).

P.S. Hey Greywander, I recently got into Game Theory as well. My favourite's the Five Nights At Freddy's... Both of them. As if that game wasn't already creepy enough... >_>

In the 4kids version, they butchered it so bad that Sanji just pushed Gin off.

"Ploop"

Such wasted potential... A lolipop to the eye would have been funny and quasiplausible. And quasiplausible is good enough for One Piece Physics.

4Kids... couldn't even do stupid right.

Hey, I LIKE the lollipop! Seriously, Sanji's so crazy dedicated to food and food-related things he doesn't even hit people with his hands. Why would he have a habit that kills tastebuds and throws nasty ash all over the place?

I know that's a rhetorical question, but this is the internet so you get an answer anyways. In-canon, Sanji took up smoking reaaaal early in order to impress Zeff with his manliness/maturity, only for Zeff to say the exact same thing about destroying taste buds.

It's a character flaw. And a rather good one at that. It's a vice Sanji has that's in direct contradiction to his stated values. Like everyone else who smokes he's simply incapable of quitting his addiction.

I remember reading a fanfiction once where circumstances prevent him from smoking for a while. They initially believe he's suffering from a disease before Chopper realizes that they're withdrawal symptoms.

This being said, I'm rather fond of the Lollipop. Am I the only one who found his voice endearing as well?

I liked the lollipop too, but yes you are the only one who found his voice endearing. I hated Sanji when I first watched One Piece... then I saw the Funimation dub. I ended up realizing that the voice was actually THE REASON that I had hated Sanji.

"Monkey Island? Monkey Island!"

Hell, I'd probably actually find time to watch that, since I always wanted to play those but don't actually see myself getting around to it.
...I kind of want to call for storytime about islands, monkeys, and combinations thereof, but that cigarette move raises another avenue: fighting dirty.
Those among ye that have tales to spin, consider yourselves prompted.

You want fighting dirty?
One of the players in my current campaign (homebrew, far too loose in the rules department) has been cultivating the ability to communicate with infections.
In his first major battle, he gave all the raiders explosive diarrhea.
Then he turned the outhouse into a mundane analogue to Hell itself, while it was still occupied. The screams of torment were cut short - and I'm STILL not sure if that was merciful or not. Pretty sure it wasn't.
Now... now he makes Tok'Ra from flukeworms, and floods NPCs with endorphins to make 'em trust the party.
Sheesh. I didn't even tell you about the poo golem...

Fighting dirty, you say? Heh. Hehehe... MWAHAHAHAHA!

I don't think I need to explain this, but Raxon is specifically extremely good at fighting dirty. I shall illustrate this point with the time in one story where he wanted to join the Justice League.

They were already impressed by his spellcasting, abilities, and medical expertise, as well as the enhanced equipment he could bring to the table, but he asked for a chance to prove himself worthy in combat. Let's be honest, here. Mages are relatively uncommon in the DCU as far as supers go, but someone with a good range of offense and support spells, and the willingness to make tons of enchanted item, enough to make them standard equipment?

The equipment alone is worth letting him join. I mean, feather falling rings, fireproofing amulets, gloves of protection from arrows(and bullets), the list goes on.

Add to that he's an empathic healer, and he's a sure thing. A combat medic who supplies you with all manner of useful things would probably be readily accepted.

Now, Raxon is short. Five foot six, and weighs about a hundred pounds, fully clothed. For almost all intents and purposes, he is a common human in hand to hand combat. He points to a picture of a certain buxom lady, and asks to fight her. They allow it, and Power Girl agrees. They decide on a match. First to hit the mat three times loses.

As the match begins, Raxon grins and reaches behind his back. PG feels a pinch on her backside, and glares at him. She charges him, and runs right into a portal as he raises his palm to her. The other end of the portal is about two feet above the mat and horizontal. She can't stop in time and slams into the mat. Point to Raxon.

She feels another pinch on her backside, and looks up to see him grinning. Standing up, she sees him reach behind his back. Quick as a flash, she reaches back and grabs the pinching hand. She yanks hard, and it comes right off. She looks up at him, and he grins and waves at her with the hand he put behind his back.

She glances down at the hand in confusion just in time for it to explode and knock her to the mat. Second point to Raxon. As she gets up, her eyes are glowing red and She. Is. PISSED! She charges him, and he turns while raising his palm to her, and she circles around him...

Only to come into direct contact with his other hand. He then hits her with a rather powerful kinetic blast that knocks her into the far wall, and she slumps to the mat. Third point and match to Raxon.

This is a darn good example of Raxon being a sneaky, manipulating bastard. Intentionally choosing someone with a temper, tricking her into thinking he just wants to get a grope, predicting her moves, and always staying two steps ahead. He won without even moving his right foot.

For all the crap I say about him, he is to be regarded as an extremely dangerous and unpredictable opponent when he gets serious. Punk with a gun? Not a serious threat. Kryptonion who can make his head explode with a finger flick? Yeah, gotta bring his A game.

One of my campaigns is a gladiator-style combat-fest we pull out when people are missing. The wizard successfully infiltrated a naked men's mud wrestling 12-man brawl, which he proceeded to "win" with spammed fire balls. So that's fighting dirty in a dirty fight, I believe. I haven't read Raxon's yet but I feel like that's a solid entry.

Challenging the BBEG's female elf assassin to a wrestling match as a high-charisma bard wasting only a loin cloth and being played as your typical lecherous ecchi anime male protagonist.

Needless to say, grappling wasn't the rule set used. Oppai~

"Dirty Tricks"

I definitely need to play more games. The dirtiest trick I've encountered in-character was my own Scion of Amaterasu named Setsuna, and it was a trick on his own friends.

Setsuna controls the Illusion Purview, just like Loki, and uses it to his fullest advantage. Two situations where he did, he tricked future allies for a good laugh. The first encounter: I met a Scion of Apollo and a Scion of Shango--the Loa of Thunder--and "tried to kill them." They chased one of my Followers into an alley and had to talk their way into the room facing off against a big, burly guard. Lucky for them, they never had to find out what was underneath the Glamour I'd made for my Oni compatriot because the Scion of Shango was a Pacifist and rolled high on Charisma.
They get where they /THINK/ they want to be, only to be trapped in an illusion where they're in a dark room with nobody around and no exit. They try to jump at shadows, I run in behind the Scion of Hephaestus and try to steal his fire axe and yank on it hard to disorient him when my Larceny roll fails. Then two of my Followers cut the two Scions with the backs of their katana, slicing their shirts but not actually cutting their skin, just little scratches that I enhanced the intensity and illusioned some blood onto the scratches to make them think they were under genuine attack.
I finally get bored of the scene the Storyteller gave me control over and light starts to fill the room. They turn to go against whoever's behind the raising curtain...to find a theater filled with ordinary people. Applauding. Setsuna is a traveling performer with his band of Samurai Followers trained as his acting troupe. I drop the illusion entirely, with myself and my men coming out of the background to accept the applause and welcome our two "honored guests randomly chosen from the audience before the show to participate." The Scions of Shango and Hephaestus were told to check their pockets (because they were chasing my Follower for a good reason) to find that nothing had been taken, he'd slipped two pieces of paper into their pockets explaining everything.

The other dirty trick is a lot shorter but I find is far more hilarious. A Scion of Susano'o wakes up with a naked man in a white-maned Noh Mask next to him. Setsuna smiled and played up the idea that they'd slept together without actually saying anything had happened, just playing on the other guy's panic. My rolls weren't half as good then, though, and I got shot in the face with a sleeping bullet and was subsequently late to a business meeting with my mother's company and the company run by the man I'd been teasing this morning. :P Setsuna likes to play with his friends.



Monkey Island? I never liked the point and click adventure games. I always missed The Thing that would save my life against the mighty Slayer of PCs and have to go ALL THE WAY BACK and find a freakin' flask of scotch just to not be murdered and then walk three feet and get mauled by Murder McRapeface Jr. who could only be appeased by the steak that I couldn't even freakin' pick up at the time I got the scotch!
So I'd much rather watch someone else play one of those! :D
It sounds like fun at least. I don't often watch Let's Play videos unless it's stupid funny like Markiplier's Happy Wheels compilations.

It's crazy expensive, but roms are free. My belief is that if a game is no longer in production, and a company no longer sells them, then a rom is just fine.

The graphics aren't super fancy, but they don't need to be, given the nature of the game. Gotcha force has a major fun factor. Once you get to playing, you really start to enjoy the play style.
