So I’ve mentioned, and have already completed, the first two of my silent streams for FFXV. I started these for mostly two reasons:
- as much fun as it is going into blind panic mode when the Zu attacks me for trying to get a garnet, that type of panic is distracting from the actual game
- I lost track of my original streams because honestly streaming from scratch is exhausting and in this case, at least, made the game a lot more work and a lot less fun
Also less fun was the unending supply of side quests; I’m usually too obsessive to not clear each and every quest and hunt, and that makes for some boring streaming. But! I’ve been through the game twice now (once blind, and once as my ridiculous Prince Spaceman) and can afford to spend my time only playing the plot and not obsessing over every little thing.
And so, without any further babble from me, here’s the Chapter 1 stream for this new project. With the rare exception of before and/or after the main content, no mic. Full subtitles. No side quests. No hunts. Just straight to Galdin, and then in later chapters straight to one story objective after another.
A quick, easy-mode run of Episode Prompto. This one took me a bit longer than Gladio’s episode did, but hey–Aranea makes everything worth it. ^_~
(Stream goes live about 3 minutes after this post publishes, click here!)
I’ve already done chapter 1 with no hunts or side quests that aren’t otherwise mandatory, so I’m moving on to chapter 2 now. There’s going to be a little bit of overlap at the beginning that I’ll edit out later; thanks to how the autosaves work in the game we should be seeing everything starting from the announcement of the attack on Insomnia through the call from Cor before moving on to the actual “new” content.
Also, like chapter 1 I’m not just going to be playing the bare minimum of quests; I’m also completely silent and playing with subtitles, so this series of streams is going to be great for anyone new or old who just wants to watch the actual game and not have me blathering over it.
See you guys in just a minute!
Going back offline for a bit, after two disastrous runs at the second pair of missions. Will post more when I get back online, and will post video(s) of the streams when all’s done. (I haven’t decided yet if I want to post them separately, or see if I can combine them into one.)
I’ll be loading this up in about a half an hour (noon Eastern) for anyone who wants to join. If you need to find me, my PSN is BrennaCeDria!
I’ll be starting this up in just a few minutes over on Twitch, but I have to say, I’m a bit worried. Not just about Prompto, though I mean c’mon, everyone who’s played the main game and has seen the trailers for this already know what’s going to be happening.
Me? I’m worried that there isn’t going to be enough time to cover all the plot hinted at in chapter 13. Either way, I’m heading into it. Join me, and wish me luck!
I have errands I’m running right now, but odds are Prince Spaceman will pick up at the beginning of chapter 9 in FFXV later today. (Hopefully Prince Spaceman will have an easier time with that chapter than Noct did on my original game.) Gaming will depend somewhat on how I’m feeling after an appointment I have, but I think I’ll be okay.
Now then, when I stream will depend on whether or not I go see King Arthur this afternoon or not. I have no expectations other seeing Charlie Hunnam, so I think I’ll probably enjoy it even if it is bad. But again, it’ll depend on how I’m feeling. Feeling rough = go home & game earlier; feeling okay = go to movie and game after.
