Nightly "Let's Play" LIVE: Enix's Wonder Project J2 (translated!)*ON AIR-AUDIO FIXED*

edited October 2007 in Games and Technology
10-19-2007 : Anyway, my brother kept falling asleep, so we're done for the night. I'm probably taking this laptop to work tomorrow, and I will be working 12hr shifts the whole weekend so that's it until Monday unless one of you wants to start with the justin.tv/palplive account (post and I'll PM login details)

Someone people asked if they missed Illusion of Gaia: Nope, it will return too! I've only got two of six Mystic Statues.

10-18-2007 : I got nothin' planned tonight. In the mean time, I'm playing Wonder Project J2 some more this morning/afternoon. Feel free [url=http://www.justin.tv/czroe]to watch[/url]. Update: This has put me in a classic Enix mood. Should we do some Illusion of Gaia or more Wonder Project J2 tonight? It's 8:00 and I'm ready to play something [I]now.[/I] :) OH! And I think I got the microphone working.

10-17-2007 : Nothing big planned today. Just dicking around in Enix's Wonder Project J2 with an unreleased English fan translation on my N64. The audio seems to be fixed, so enjoy!

I'm doing this from Ichinisan's place today. To capture from S-Video, you're forcing me to play this beautiful game with composite video. :(
Wonder Project J2! 9PM EDT, 6PM PDT

We're started. For the late arrivals: Wonder Project J was a Super Famicom (SNES) game about a robot boy created by Dr. Geppetto (names "Pinno" by no coincidence). By answering questions through an interface robot (a dog), you molded the robot from a blank slate to an upright and moral citizen... willing to give his life to save the others. In J2, Dr. Geppetto has created a new robot... a girl named "Josette." Before he can train her, he dies and leaves her with instructions to go meet you, "Player-san," and live at Megafloat Island. It is your duty to take care of her and teach her what she needs to know to be "real"... just like Pinocchio aspired to be. Your job is cut out for you: She fails to even understand the impact of "death."

Now Josette is familiar with Player-san (me) and I've helped her learn how to greet people. She has a job as a waitress at Karen's Pub and has befrended a hawt blonde.

What is this thread?

Unless a game has online multiplayer, most Let's Play threads are a little... passive.

This thread will open a shared channel for Penny Arcade users to play something new each night. The login details will be shared with anyone who asks and the channel will be open all day for showing any impromptu gaming feats. Let's just keep the nightly session planned.

Though I am currently using my own account, the shared account is "PALPLIVE"

Anyone have a good "PA" logo to use?

Spoilt' 'till I can update it.
What does everyone think about having a shared live nightly "Let's Play" thread? You know, we set up a justin.tv channel for Penny Arcade users and share the login details. We pass the torch at the end of the night to the next show-off. justin.tv does not require email confirmation to create an account, so it's easy enough to join the live conversation.

I was thinking about getting something like this started tonight, but my brother's PC has something wrong with the line input and Justin.tv can't get audio from my GameBridge without locking up the computer. I'll go ahead if you guys don't mind crappy audio piped into a microphone port.

How about we try this tonight at 10:00PM Eastern (7:00PM Pacific)? You guys chose the game, my brother and I will play. We'll play again tomorrow night until someone is ready to take the torch.

Killer Instinct or Donkey Kong Country?

UPDATE:
We started with Killer Instinct and added on a little Battletoads in Battlemaniacs, Super Mario World + Super Mario All*Stars Super Mario Bros. 3 battle mode, and finished it up by playing all the way through Donkey Kong Country in competition mode (Ichinisan vs. CZroe).

That was a little much. How about just Sin & Punishment for tomorrow? Or should I drag Ichinisan into this for a 2p match again? I'm just trying to fill this slot while no one else is playing anything, so if you've got something to show, speak up!

If I can get permission, I'd like to present an unreleased English translation of Wonder Project J2 (N64) in the future this way.

    Bump for edits. If no one is ready to play the next night, my brother and I will simply keep playing until someone does.

    The channel is already up. Join in at any time.

    Edit: Looks like it doesn't want to stream without a restart.

    It just keeps loading for me...doesn't give any actual video - am I doing something wrong?

    EDIT: Now I have a monkey - guess I'll wait for your reboot :)

    Also, I vote for anything but DKC!

    I was wondering that too. Since there are two of you, some night you should play a good coop brawler like Knights of the Round, Super Double Dragon or Battletoads.

    Heh, pretty good music. But why the hell is it called 'Battlemaniacs?' Is this the European version?

    The SNES version is Battletoads in Battlemaniacs IIRC.

    BTW, you're supposed to hit the bad guys - not each other :P

    You're still not doing a very good job of not beating the crap out of each other.

    Other than staying away from eachother, I don't see how. The game chooses the attacks and then puts you in unavoidably close quarters. Am I missing some kind of attack? How can I pick my brother up and throw him at an enemy without throwing him off?

    I don't dispute that... I only rented this 14 years ago... and I had just gotten my SNES.

    Is there a code, cheat, or anything that would let me back in (Battletoads in Battlemaniacs)?

    Alright, you have to finish it now. The farthest I've ever been is that big industrial zone where the lights flicker on and off, and I want to see what's next.

    Only one world left...you almost beat the game.

    I think this is a good idea, and it was nice to chill with you guys in a chatbox and watch a good game from the teenage years.. Hope this trend continues and we see something like EWJ or another good 16-bit classic, 2p should be mandatory though.

    Finished at last. How about a little Sin and Punishment or one of those God-awful Zelda CD-i games tomorrow? 9PM Eaastern (6PM Pacific). DECIDE. I'll go with the first suggestion if there isn't significant dissent from everyone else.

    If anyone else is ready to show us something, let me know and we'll do that instead. I'm just trying to fill the slot until you guys are ready to go.

    OK, NOW the channel should be live. I'm going to play something else while waiting for you guys to get here. ;)

    Just waiting for the word "GO" from you guys.

    BTW, I can't figure out how to log into IRC with my own client. A little help?
