BTPF Channel Recap 10th July 2016

July 10, 2016 Leave a comment

Hello! It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these but let’s get back on track! Here is everything that’s been happening on my YouTube channel over the past week for those who may have missed a thing or two!

First of all, I posted my Highlights video for June, bringing together some of my sillier bits to give a flavour of what the last month had to offer. As always, a good place to start if you’re new to the channel.

The last ever episode of Gravity Rush went up this week too. And yes, it’s absolutely the last ever episode. I won’t hear any comments that say it isn’t. Come on now. That’s crazy talk.

In the Tomb Raider reboot, Lara visits a monastery, encounters gore and spooky monsters, and then gets a shotgun to play with. A good time was had by all.

Also, my Twitter followers voted for me to play Dishonoured for the first time. Here’s my experience with the first 40 minutes or so!


In addition, don’t forget my latest Chronological Challenge reviews! This week was Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver and Resident Evil 3, as we continue towards the end of the 1990s.

There was no Chatty Corner this week as I’ve been re-evaluating how I do that, but it should absolutely be returning next week along with more Tomb Raider and another Ferret’s First of the first of this month’s PlayStation Plus games. And that’s it…what do you mean, what about Gravity Rush? That’s done! It’s over! There certainly won’t be another part along with an impromptu plot discussion video next weekend, so put that thought out of your head right now.

Until then, I shall see you around! Enjoy this week’s content!

YouTube Recap: More Consistency Please!

May 29, 2016 Leave a comment

Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a wonderful three-day weekend, as it appears both the UK and US are doing that. And if you’re not having a three-day weekend, then I hope you’re having a good time regardless. With that out of the way, it’s time to return to my weekly roundup of everything happening over on my channel.

But Mr Ferret, I hear you ask, you haven’t done one of these recaps in weeks. Why come back to it now all of a sudden? It’s rather simple. I’ve had a few crazy weeks of random allergy-related illness, starting studying for a marketing qualification, and other non-channel/blog issues, and this blog fell considerably to the wayside in the process.

But I’m back, so if you’ve been wondering what I’ve been up to in the past week, you’re in luck!

First of all, the Let’s Plays!

Gravity Rush continues, and we’re just past the halfway mark now. This week’s episode was a short one that was pretty much just a boss fight and nothing else. But it’s still good! And I give the leader of the mysterious village a highly inappropriate voice. Excellent.

And I’ve started up an LP of the Tomb Raider reboot from 2013, because my channel wouldn’t be the same without a Tomb Raider game on there at some point. This one’s notably different, of course, as it’s a far cry from the classics. This week was a double bill, where Lara slogged through the Coastal Forest and learned how to kill wildlife. I hope she can do this.

Chatty Corner this week continued my recent tradition of just throwing a bunch of stuff and hoping something sticks as a discussion point. Among this week’s topics were Shadow of the Beast, series that have lost their way, and anime fans crying on prom night. Oh yes.

Two Ferret’s Firsts this week, both of which uploaded this weekend. The first was Switch Galaxy Ultra, which I keep thinking actually has “Gravity” in the title but it doesn’t (and amusingly, isn’t in YouTube’s game database, so it too thinks it’s Gravity Rush). The second was uploaded today, and it’s the cult Dreamcast classic Jet Set Radio, which I’d never played before this week (I played the HD re-release on PSN). It’s pretty neat.

And that’s your lot for this week. Next week will be more TR and Gravity Rush, and until Sony announce June’s PlayStation Plus lineup, I’m limited in Ferret’s Firsts options, so I may dig into my collection and find something, like I did with Bayonetta a short while back. And if I do, I’ll most likely put up a Twitter poll with a couple of options, so make sure you’re following me (@TheCheapFerret) to catch that.

If you have any comments on any of this, please let me know, and if you really love what I do and want to see things get even better, please consider supporting me over on Patreon if you can; it’d be hugely appreciated.

Until then, hopefully this blog will see some improvements over the coming weeks, including a possible post tomorrow. And that’s that. Enjoy the videos, and I’ll see you again for another recap next weekend!

YouTube Recap: Busy Busy Busy

March 20, 2016 Leave a comment

Hello everyone! I didn’t do an update last week because I got sick again. Fortunately, this seemed to actually clear by the end of the week, but I’ve also had a busy week in non-channel, non-writing ways, so I’ve not been as active as I’d like to be. Read more…

YouTube Recap: Headset Blues

March 7, 2016 Leave a comment

Hi there. Sorry this didn’t go up yesterday, as the issues I’m about to describe contributed greatly to why that didn’t happen.

So last week was pretty bad for me. It took forever for my new headset to show up, so there have been no new Ferret’s Firsts for a while, and there was no Chatty Corner this week either. To add insult to injury, when the headset did show up, I came down with a cold for two days so recording was still very much off the table. Then when I was finally able to record, I discovered that my new headset was faulty and making noises that sounded like I was in a wind tunnel with a car alarm going off in the far distance while I hit the microphone repeatedly. Then I ordered a replacement for pick-up, but I then suffered from severe insomnia that meant I was a complete zombie all of yesterday. Hence the lack of a post too.

So last week there were only the pre-uploaded Let’s Play parts. Which is good, because it means something still went up, and highlights exactly why I record and edit in advance! Read more…

YouTube: Channel Anniversary

February 19, 2016 Leave a comment

Some of you who follow this blog will be aware that I have a YouTube channel where I post Let’s Plays (or rather, Entertaining Walkthroughs of Games I Think Are Cool), and sometimes various other things. But I never focus on it too much here. Sometimes I’ll link to a video here or there, but rarely will I put the spotlight on what I’m currently doing. No more! Read more…
