    Default Insane In the Membrane: Let's Play Call Of Cthulhu: Dark Corners Of The Earth




    Gather round, everybody!

    In 2005, a neat little game was released unto the original XBOX and the PC: Call Of Cthulhu: Dark Corners Of The Earth.
    Originally planned as the first entry in a whole series of mythos games, this little gem never quite took off. It's atmospheric,
    true to the sources in spirit if not in letter, quite fun, and darn ugly to look at.

    So why LP this game?

    Simple: I'm a mild mythos nerd, and SpineShark, who'll sign up to this forum especially for this LP, is a major one.
    We wanted to do an LP together for some time now, and this game is the perfect soil upon which we'll spill our evil seed.

    What you can expect from this thread:
    - Live gameplay video with audio commentary by me, SpineShark and maybe the occasional guest
    - Updates once a week, with one or two episodes each
    - An unskilled playthrough on Medium difficulty, with wise-ass comments and sometimes help by someone who vaguely remembers the game
    - If there's demand for it, there'll be a live stream

    Spoiler Policy:
    - Please spoiler everything pertaining to the plot
    - Hints towards what to do next are always appreciated
    - General talk about the Cthulhu Mythos is OK, but no mentioning which aspects touch the game unless we've already shown it

    Alright, let's step right into:

    Episode 01: In which we meet our protagonist and loose almost seven years of memory. Amnesia this early, you'll say? Well, of course! The Yith are here to deliver!

    This one is quite cutscene heavy, and we had a whole lot of technical difficulties, but since we lost the voice track on our first runthrough and the video recording of the second take, we were NOT going to re-voice this one. I apologize for the botched sound, but if I don't upload this now, this LP will never take off. Next episode'll make up for it, since we managed to solve our problems, and it might even come earlier than next week, as an apology so to speak.

    !!! Due to my netbook falling down from the desk and its display being broken, the LP is on a halt until I have it fixed !!!

    That a shame it looks good.
    Thanks to Ceika for my awesome half orc fighter up there.
    If i had superpowers. I would go to conventions dressed as myself, and see if i got complimented on my authenticity.

    Thanks. With any look, we should be good to go mid-next week, I hope.

    If you turn up the gamma, the game might actually be visible. Will you be shooting for mythos rank A?

    Love this game. Lost my disk, though.

    Episode 03: In which we start investigating the town of Innsmouth, meet some... rather wet people, and have surprisingly few technical difficulties.

    We managed to get this one on our first try. No technic-related screw-ups this time!
    Also, turns out I missed one diary entry for the screenshots. I'll supply that one next episode.
