And so we’re back with another compilation, this time on Tomb Raider: Anniversary.
I have to admit my surprise when I tallied up the deaths and found the number smaller than those in Tomb Raider: Underworld. It was a pleasant surprise, even more because in hour-long episodes, the first death often happened after more than 20 or 30 minutes had passed, meaning that for most of the series, I had a pretty damn cool undefeated run. Then I crash and burn as you’d expect. Continue reading Tomb Raider: Anniversary Death Comp
In the past weeks I finished Darksiders, the last series I played just recording videos and uploading them, and Tales of Zestiria, my longest running series and the first for which I edited the content to make it a bit more entertaining. Granted, I only did so for the last couple of episodes and only added a few animations, but you gotta start somewhere, right?
Before I took my break, I had three running series and with two of them done, it’s time to end the last one and move on to new projects. That’s right, it’s time to go back to the renaissance, fight the Templars and open the way to the vault in Assassin’s Creed II. Continue reading Back to the Renaissance!
Tales of Zestira is finally done!
After 8 months, 110 episodes—and many more I either deleted accidentally or lost due to file corruption—and hours of footage, the game is finally done and I’m very proud of it. What started as a regular playthrough of a massively long game ended up being the first game I created custom thumbnails for and now at the end it’s the first of the LawfulGeek plays series to have extensive video editing done on them. Continue reading Tales of Zestiria – It’s a Wrap!
Last year, around March, I started what would become the first playthrough of what I now call LawfulGeek Plays. It was Tomb Raider: Underworld and it was the first game in a plan to play through the entire classic series—starring the original Lara Croft that is—in reverse order, starting with Underworld and ending with the original 1996 Tomb Raider. Continue reading One Year of Gaming and Back to Raiding
Last week, I mentioned I wanted to do a few things differently with the YouTube channel, and at some other point I mentioned I would be leaving one of the LawfulGeek Plays slots empty for a while as I wanted to do a few more edits and prepare videos more thoroughly.
To that end, and because I’m a bit impatient and want to move things along as fast as I can, I’ve decided to use this week to air the remaining episodes of Darksiders. Continue reading Darksiders Week!
I’ve been playing Overwatch for a few weeks now, and last time I spoke of the negative environment in the forums for the game, particularly about character criticisms and the idea of hero rankings. During said article, I took a few stabs at balancing out the character Genji, which as you may have noticed from my highlight videos, is my main character in Overwatch, with the big lug Reinhardt in second place.
Some of the community were instantly miffed of the suggestions about the character, as I expected them to be. It was the whole point of the thing. In reality I don’t think the character needs much in terms of balancing, perhaps just give him some invulnerability during his Swift Strike dash, but that’s out of personal preference and frustration more than anything.

I know the title is a bit alarming, I’m sorry about that, it’s nothing bad, but I’m finally getting close to the end of Tales of Zestiria. You might be wondering why I’m talking about it instead of just keeping things going until the last episode but this is the first of my Let’s Play series to go over 100 episodes. When I sat down to play it this weekend, after months of inactivity because of the country hop, and saw the endgame zone, I was ecstatic.
You can’t believe how long I’ve been waiting to get here. Because even if I left it very close to the end before moving, there was still so much to see to actually meet the final boss, Heldalf. Continue reading The End Approaches – LawfulGeek Plays
So, yesterday I went back to broadcasting on the LawfulGeek channel on Twitch. After more than a month waiting to have the proper setup, it was a gratifying experience. I had a lot of fun with my loyal audience of one…until he left for the night. Then I just kept myself company, but no matter, I’m used to it.
And besides, my interest was in the game I was playing and which I will be playing on stream for the foreseeable future: Overwatch. You may have seen me share a few videos on different matches and highlights and below you’ll find all of them in a nice playlist. So you can consider this a little hands-on first impression article. Continue reading Overwatch and back to Twitch!
I said last month that there would be more of these catching up articles and I keep my promises!
The last few weeks have been very interesting. The last time I wrote one of these I mentioned I finally made it to the UK, right? It’s been a dream of mine for years and it finally happened. Exactly a week after my last catch-up article, I started work with my first client–I’m a freelancer though I think ‘mercenary’ sounds much more badass, so let’s use that one–and at first, I’ll admit, I was ready to be distant, professional to a fault, but I couldn’t. First of all, it’s really not my style, I’m way too open and enjoy joking around way too much, and secondly these guys are awesome. Where normally I’d be annoyed at going to work day in and day out, I’m enjoying my time with them. And it might be my England-fandom speaking, but I don’t mind commuting from my new hometown–a nice seaside village in Essex–to London for work. I really don’t. Continue reading The Road so Far – May, Internet, Videos & More
For the past few months, I’ve been pumping out videos for a series of Let’s Play videos I like to call LawfulGeek Plays. I’ve run these episodes in various formats and schedules, the latest one being a Monday to Friday schedule with three episodes per day, one for the games I’ve been playing.
For the past couple of weeks I haven’t had any episodes, as I’ve just moved to another country and I’m not in my own place with the proper internet to upload them in bulk. But the break has given me time to think and I’ve realised that the schedule I have right now isn’t working. It’s not attracting more viewers and it’s very time-consuming for me, as I need to record dozens of episodes ahead of time to keep up to date. As much as I love recording and playing the games, it does cut into the time I need for other projects, considerably so. Continue reading LawfulGeek Plays Rescheduling!
