    Is Miles going to be doing that excited, low, raw voice for the entire game playthrough?.. Cuz that just might be a new favorite thing now.

    I'm really glad to see you guys playing Shovel Knight, it's one of my favorite games too! Since you're going into more games available on Steam, I really recommend VA-11 Hall-A, it's probably one of the best things in my library.

    You guys should check out "Undertale"! It kind of has been played to death, but I think it would be your guys cup of tea and perfect for a long play through. I also just want to hear the voices you give each character!

    I hope at some point we can see some "Among the Sleep" played by you two!

    You can set this in the options menu. I didn't realise until I finished the whole game and expansions.

    Ok, I fucking love how Miles and I went for the same voice style with the Specter Knight  - including drawing out the Shield Knight's name.  laughing

    That was decently fun, I suppose. I've heard insane amounts of praise for this game and Miles certainly seemed to be super excited to play it. But I must say, I don't really understand what it is about it that makes this such a great game. Fun to watch and I'll keep watching, of course, but thus far I'm confused. Hopefully that will clear up by the end.

      For me, it's a lot of different things. The story, writing, art, and sound are all right up my alley. It hits nostalgia while still being its own thing.


      From a gameplay perspective, though, it's just so damn fun. I love platformers, and these controls are just so TIGHT. There's a wide variety of relics to mix up your play style, but even if you opt out of using your relics most of the time (like I did on my first playthrough) Shovel Knight's default abilities are still fun and incredibly useful.


      Level design is also rad. There's really only one section in the game that introduced a mechanic I didn't like (looking at you, rainbow barf platform). It was just super stressful, but it's also towards the end of the game, so I think it's acceptable.


      TLDR: I think the thing that makes Shovel Knight so great is simply that it is a very fun and well made video game.

    I remember when Specter of Torment came out, I couldn’t stop thinking about how cool it would be if Specter Knight fought Ruby Rose as a bonus boss. Red-hooded character with scythe vs. other red-hooded character with scythe, basically. But then BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle was announced and filled my need for RWBY crossing over with another video game. I know this isn’t particularly relevant, but I just wanted a chance to talk about that. Nice video, guys.

    How about a BackwardZ Compatible on "Killer is Dead"? It's currently free on HumbleBundle and I think it's fun as dicks.

    Your argument about zombies is entirely dependent on which zombie lore you are going by. The original concept of zombies is that they were a curse from hell. Where as the current most popular lore for zombie is that they are a viral plague. But in either case, zombies are portrayed to have super human strength. In the Curse lore they supersede conventional science since they are powered by a curse or hell, meaning even though they are rotting they still exceed human strength through "magic" of some nature. Where as in the virus lore the dead cells are coming back to life through evolution or mutation, since more zombie games have the odd zombie types, eg. fast movers, spitters, bloaters, screamer, etc. In both scenarios they must consume the living to continue their "half life" most commonly the consumption of the brain. In either case the science doesn't back up zombies not because their muscles are decaying but because at present the reanimation of dead tissue is impossible and their has yet to be a documented case of the existence of "magic" or "mana".  Sorry, I'm not really a zombie nerd but my ADD mind never stops running, and I love lore, myths and legends.

    Miles at the beginning of this video was basically me when I found out they were playing this.  SO good.

    I wonder if they're going to run any DLC?  I almost prefer Plague of Shadows to the main game, both because I think the story is a bit better (not to sell the main story short, mind you), and with the right combination of bombs, fuses, and casings, you can absolutely
    BREAK. 
    THAT GAME. 
    IN HALF.


    And what other game gives you explosives as your only weapon (excluding maybe Bomberman)?

    But seriously- I'm going to enjoy this playthough, I think.
