Name says it all; Originally aired on August 4, 2014. Snarboo, Bobinator, Mr. Argent and special guest Dire 51 join me in a look at the Strider game that pretty much wasn't. The game is basically the same with a few differences - the game is obviously not bug- or balance-tested (not that the final version was), and it has more game-breaking bugs than Obsidian's entire publishing history put together. This includes a final boss that isn't accessible unless you glitch out the game in the right way, and no apparent end (or ending) to the game once it's dead. Special thanks to the fellow in the livestream chat who went by "helper," because I'd have never figured that one out .
Also as mentioned in another thread, there's song lyrics that run along with the opening theme during the intro - because I'm a narcissist, I was going to sing along with it and put that as a bonus. After over forty failed takes I failed to arrive at anything that didn't sound like shit, or sounded like shit in a funny way; part of the problem is that there are a few lines that do not fit the music in any way, shape or form, or at least in a way that doesn't sound like a bad impression of the Micro Machines guy. It's the musical equivalent of putting about three gallons of lunchmeat in a one gallon bag. The other problem was that I had been screaming into a voice recorder for about an hour inside a non-air-conditioned car in the middle of nowhere so my wife didn't make fun of me and I was starting to get dizzy and see shit. So I just subbed the intro and put it in at the end, and you guys can fucking sing it yourselves, I'm done. If I hear that goddamn song one more time going to stab my eardrums out with scissors. Special thanks to Wyrdwad for transcribing the lyrics and providing a translation!
I put scans from the manga the game's based on in there where applicable, and where there's a really big fucked up bug or a difference between the two games I did the picture in picture thing from the Monster Party stream. Anyway, hope you guys enjoy it!!!
