Unlucky Nº13

Might just be getting the hang of this YouTube thing. I’ve added another three Just Cause 2 videos in my Let’s Play Badly series, making a grand total of thirteen videos on my YouTube channel. I seriously enjoy playing that game but I have to stop myself from taping just about everything I do and posting it.

I’ll try to concentrate on faction missions and storyline missions only. Mmm, maybe with the odd Race Challenge thrown in for good luck (like the 2nd video here).

The first of the three is the starting stronghold mission for the Roaches. Razak “The Razor” Razman has us take over a Port for him.

The second video is an example of the Race Challenge missions you’ll find dotted everywhere on the map (75 in total). This one is a flying challenge (others include land vehicles, boats and free-fall) and considering its only a 1-star, the easiest of the challenges, I do incredibly badly. Yeah, I named this series well.

The last of the three is another stronghold mission for the third and final criminal organisation – the Ular Boys. Led by Sri Irawan, he’s had his eye on a Nuclear Power Station…

Badly with Bolo

I created another Just Cause 2 video in my Let’s Play Badly series. This time, I’m helping out the local criminal gang, the Reapers, take over a facility. Headed by Bolo Santosi (she of the chunky pronunciation), the Reapers lack the ladder technology to get over a three metre high gate and so need my mad grappling-hook skills (um, skillz?) to scale it for them. Oh, and to shoot lots of people.

Badly to the bone…

Just Cause 2

Yay, an excuse to use my JC2 explosion image!

Just recently, as you might have seen, I’ve created some videos on YouTube for my Minecraft creations (channel here). What you might not have noticed is that I have also been trying my hand at your typical “Let’s Play” style game video. Naturally, I picked the excellent Just Cause 2 as my source material. And just as naturally, I’ve called them “Let’s Play Badly” because I’m a pretty lousy gamer.

So far, there’s three videos covering the first two missions. I think I may have picked exactly the wrong game to do a series on as a majority of it is free-form chaos, going wherever you fancy… and then blowing it up. To counter this, I’ll probably focus on the bigger storyline missions (ones with cutscenes) and maybe a few random base attacks.

One thing I’ve noticed – waffling on while you’re wandering around a blocky landscape may be hard but waffling on while flying through the air, trying not to get your head blown off is really, really hard.

The first episode introduces us to our hero, Rico Rodriguez as he is transported to the island of Panau in order to locate former mentor Tom Sheldon.

In the second episode, we’ve discovered that our contact on the island, Karl Blaine, is holed up at the top of an under-siege casino and needs us to get him out.

The third episode has us putting our life in the hands of the perma-blotto Karl Blaine as we surf the roof of his sweet, sweet ride back to his ‘crib’.

I’m not sure how many more of these I’ll be doing but if you’re interested in seeing me fail repeatedly at Just Cause 2, be sure to check the site. Or you could always try subscribing to my YouTube channel. That’d work too.
