Happy Saturday, Iron Persons! Are you having a good weekend? I hope so, because this is all a test. If you are not having a good weekend, you fail the test – but no worries, you can try again in a week.
Today we’ve got some DVD extras for you. The first comes in the form of a question: which Witcher is wichest? Want a witch but prefer a witch that’s a little witcher? Whichever way you want it, Allahweh’s play through of The Witcher is witch, witcher and witchest. She’s already up to episode VI and sleeping with prostitutes, so if you’re not already following Geralt’s anemic adventures, you can catch up and do so here. Be sure to watch the vids in full width on YouTube if you have a burning desire to see the dialogue text properly.
The second piece of news is that I’m currently in the (death) throes of planning a wedding in September to a woman so amazing that she’s agreed to let me have this played at the ceremony. I told her it was was either that or Master of Puppets so I think she made the right concession. But anyway, the upshot is that the giant ticking clock hanging over my head means that there may be some slight delays to going on with my own stuff on the site. And I should really put this giant ticking clock elsewhere in the house, it’s dangerous having it right over my head as I type.
But never fear. As a backup for times in which I’m not going to be able to put something out in a timely manner, I’ve enlisted the help of Sir Reginald Keyword to fill in the gaps.
Sir Reginald Survival Minecraft Keyword the Third is a gentleman of the truest order, and has been trekking across the scale model (one mile = one block) recreation map of Planet Earth, in Minecraft. Starting off in Sydney and trying to get back to London, Reginald is attempting to get to the top of Australia, sailing up and around Indonesia, across the Himalayas, through the Middle East, into Europe and back to Ol’ Blighty.
The odds are stacked against him. Because I have to put a daft gimmick on every project I undertake, here be the rules for this bonus series:
1) Hard difficulty all the way
2) No animals (by proxy, since there doesn’t seem to be any on the map)
3) Every time Reginald dies, the Child’s Play charity fundraiser benefits.
Yep. I know I bleat on about the fundraiser like it’s going out of fashion, which I’m sure you all love, so for once you get to enjoy a bit of schadenfreude on my part since every death will result in a $20 donation. Given that we’ll be trekking across the world in hard difficulty, I think this is going to end up costing a king’s ransom. Did I mention I was trying to pay of a wedding? Hmmmm.
Episode 1 and 2 are up, and more will follow on a regular basis. However, note that this is a spin-off series; what this means is I won’t announce any new episodes here (I see it as a separate entity from IMM, since I’m not physically playing the game in Iron Man Mode) so the only way of being notified of any new episodes is to subscribe to my YouTube channel. The handle is whokilledzekeiddon.
We’ll be continuing on here as usual so do feel free to ignore that mini-series, too. I’m not doing it in some vain attempt to be some kind of British version of the Yogscast. Or… y’know, the Yogscast. I’m not after a zillion views just to become a YouTube partner and play Minecraft for a living like half the population of Earth. ‘Twas something I wanted to do for a while and wanted to do for my own enjoyment*, but if you do happen to enjoy it, a like or a subscribe will let me know that you enjoy the vids I can quickly bash out in amongst the ‘proper’ content here and I’ll continue.
Here’s the first two:
Planet Earth Minecraft Survival – Road to Britain #1
Planet Earth Minecraft Survival – Road to Britain #2
* Do you like the way I said that? It’s kind of like how every musician or author says “I just got back to basics and didn’t care about what the label wants or what the fans expected. I did it for me, maaaaan. If people dig it, that’s cool,” when interviewed about their latest release.
Of course I didn’t make these dumb videos for myself. I wouldn’t have put them on YouTube otherwise.
