Azothan's To the Bitter End "Let's Play" videos!
« on: July 01, 2015, 09:52:47 PM »
Well, I kept waiting (and waiting) and hoping for this forum to allow embedding of youtube videos, but it looks like that's not going to happen so rather than waiting any longer, I wanted to share something that I thought was awesome.

There's a guy on youtube who makes Warcraft III related Let's Play videos.  It turns out he Let's Played To the Bitter End, the custom campaign I made!  I ended up stumbling across the videos quite some time back, just after he'd completed the video for Chapter III, and seeing them was one of the most gratifying things ever, not least because he seems to stumble into virtually every trap I set up and still perseveres to the end.  A real trooper!  Plus his commentary is often hilarious.

He's not playing the absolute latest version, but it's pretty close.  After watching his videos, I fixed a couple of bugs that I noticed happening in them.

So, regardless of if you've played my campaign or not, please take a look at the below videos!  They are hilarious thanks to his commentary!  They are poignant as you watch a man's spirit be slowly crushed!  Particularly recommended if you wanted to play but just couldn't hack it. :P

This is super cool. I've just started watching the first episode but I'm looking forward to watching this series.

Sorry, but embedding is probably not happening any time soon. I've tried to get it working a couple of times now and keep running into problems. Pretty sure it's cause we're running an older version of Simple Machines, so maybe at some point I'll try to get that updated.


I've already seen this entire series, and it's excellent (except for the parts of Chapter VII where he resorts to singing to pass the time, but that's just me being picky). Give them a watch if you haven't yet.

I have a lot of favourite moments, but some of the highlights include the end of Chapter V, where you can see confidence turn to utter horror in a matter of seconds, and the early part of Chapter VII (with Kitharsis) where he believes he's compounding his risk of heart failure.

It occurs to me I may be a sadist.

It amuses me to no end that his least favorite character at the start is you, Soul Reaver, but then it swiftly turn into Kitharsis around Mission 6 and 7.

I believe that is the first time anyone has damned my name in a Youtube video...

Poor Kitharsis.

I must admit, I could not hack the difficulty of these and haven't played through them.  It was awesome to be able to experience them in this way. 

Excellent job Soul Reaver!

Thanks Kith!

Oh, and for feeble babies such as yourself: if you type in "easy" in the chat, it makes the current level a (little) easier. :P
