My LP channel (Shameless self promotion)
« on: September 05, 2013, 09:18:54 PM »
Yeah, yet another roguelike LPer, it's fun!
Have been at it a little while (a few complete projects) but haven't really promoted my channel much.
So far I've done:
Rogue (5.4.4)
DoomRL
Dwarf Fortress (0.34.10, adventure mode, my first project, horrible quality)
Brogue
and Nlarn
(all completed, all in ASCII, Next project hasn't started yet but should soon barring any technology issues.)

Link is https://www.youtube.com/rogueswonderland

I've done some one-of videos of non roguelikes and may start doing full projects that are not roguelikes in the future but those are hardly relevant to this forum.

Hope you stop by!

EDIT: I read every comment!
Also a finished project does not mean I beat the game! I'm not good at roguelikes by any means, I've only properly beaten two! (If you want to find out if any of those are on camera you'll have to watch I guess :P)

Yeah, near as I can tell it's the first on youtube? If not the others are very hard to find.  :)

It's because no one wants to cast the requisite number of Magic Missiles  :P

It's funny that I coincidentally decided to join the Temple forum a couple of weeks after I stumbled across your channel.

I tend not to watch LPs of games I play myself, but I've watched most of your Brogue and Nlarn episodes. I'm curious to see what you do next.

I don't blame them, my knuckles started to hurt after some of those episodes. Totally worth it, Nlarn is a great game, even if magic isn't balanced well.

Neat :) Hope you liked the vids you've watched! Next project should start very soon. (Ideally tomorrow, but no promises, I'm horrible at keeping to schedule.)

Offensive magic (the elemental ones are even more powerful than magic missile) was the basis of my victory when I played NLarn; the other important element (IIRC) was good body armour so that I could weather all of those long fights in the early game.

The other offensive spells are stronger, but magic missle is dirt cheap as well, and it easily spammable.

Yep. A couple of versions ago magic missile was even more powerful, but the dev nerfed it (not quite enough) after I emailed...

Yeah I remembered it being even more unbalanced but when I downloaded the game again for the LP it seemed a bit weaker. Not that I'm complaining, but it could do with another nerf.

Agreed. I tried to get the rate of weapon destruction decreased too, but he only fixed the bug that lets artefact weapons get destroyed. Accuracy in this game is a bit insane :>

Magic is so good that after a couple floors, weapon breaking stops being an issue anyway. :)

Definitely the only way to win! Would be nice to have a fix, though.

It would be nice. I would like weapons to be at least kinda useful in the mid/end game... or at least the early game! They basically become worthless as soon as you get magic missile!
