Let's Play Mass Effect 3 #27 Final Thoughts MP3

Anger, Sadness & Envy Rev 3
With the original Mass Effect trilogy now complete, Blackstar and Narcogen are joined once again by Jillybean and Malagate to talk about the series, the ending of Mass Effect 3, and our expectations for Andromeda. This is a special wrap-up episode with no new footage; video is pulled from each of the games in the series, or from other sources where appropriate. It is very long (more than 2.5 hours!) and is not a traditional let's play episode.

ASE Ep. 122 Vidmaster You Think You're Big Time? You're Gonna Die Big Time!

See video
Vidmaster Big Time

Marathon Infinity's "Vidmaster Challenge" features remixes of three levels, the first of which is Try Again from the original Marathon. Each level includes grey, upgraded enemies.

A few notes about our playthrough:

We played Marathon and Marathon Infinity on Normal difficulty. We increased the difficulty on Marathon 2: Durandal to Major Damage to compensate for our somewhat higher familiarity with the levels of that game.

Big Time here is being played on Total Carnage; since the entire point of the Vidmaster Challenge is increased difficulty, there didn't seem much point in not playing it on the highest difficulty.

However, it was clearly designed for solo play where any death means a restart. We use irons' Co-Op script so that we share weapons and don't lose them upon death. We had some sync problems on playback as with the earlier vidmaster levels, but here it only prevented me from capturing Blackstar's chase camera angle. I have no idea why.

I think we're supposed to kill everything in this mission, although the sometimes inaccurate enemy counter still shows a few remaining when we hit the final terminal.

What a ride!

By Committee

Tycho offers us a deal: if we let him out of jail, he just might not not kill us. Wait, what?

The power generators the Pfhor are using to keep us, the BOBs and Tycho restrained are (where else?) down in the dungeons. Who knew?

Anger, Sadness and Envy Ep. 22: All Your Sword Base Are Belong To Us

Blackstar and Narcogen take a look through the second playable level of Halo: Reach, in which you may go left, or you may go right, but either way, you end up backtracking and then going inside before it starts raining Covenant corvettes.

Anger, Sadness and Envy Ep. 21: The Winter of our Discontingency

This time on Anger, Sadness and Envy, Narcogen, Blackstar and Cody Miller take a look at the first level of Halo: Reach, Winter Contingency.

Show highlights include:

ODST was the only Halo game that started with a text crawl. Reach is the only one that starts with a flashback, showing your customized helmet on the post-invasion, burning surface, then transitioning to Noble Six putting the helmet on in the Warthog, on his (or her) way to meet the rest of Noble Team. Does this work?

Hungry Like The (Lone) Wolf. Does the foreshadowing-- the lone wolf stuff stays behind-- work as well when part of the game's marketing campaign was "from the end, you know the beginning"?
