House of Horrors: Call of Cthulhu Highlights
This week, Jess and Zorine take on the role of monotone Jack Walters as they try (and sometimes fail) to escape bloodthirsty townspeople and commit the seemingly simple task of closing a door.
This game is very close to my becos of the setting and the highly likeable main character (he even kinda looks like me, thanks for the compliment btw)
Hell im just glad to see some girls who like to playing games, my last girlfriend hated games, and would bitch the whole time while I played them, and especially bad if i had friends over playing. The shows supposed to be fun some of you guys need to chill out a bit B======0
Well chicks generaly think of a million other stuff when doing something and never take it even a bit seriously,especialy playing video games,so i didn't expect anything better.
Couldn't watch for more than one and a half minutes, i felt the need to punch something. I mean, the previous videos were OK but in this one i think you went overboard. If you don't like a game just don't play it, there's no need to make fun of it....
This show sucks ass, I agree. Too bad it is reviewed so childishly and not given a more sharp and polished approach.
I enjoyed CoC back in the day. It was a survival horror masterpiece. It is supposed to be played in a 4:3 resolution, the stretched screen in the video looked horrendous.
BTW the two planed sequels "Call of Cthulhu: Beyond the Mountains of Madness" and "Call of Cthulhu: Destiny's End" were canceled because no publisher wanted to risk releasing a first person game that was not Elder Scrolls or a CoD clone and thus Headfirst Productions got bust, which is sad.
Oh, and this show sucks ass. Just saying.
Excuse me, but this gameplay is being immature on purpose? Anyway, is a pity that this great game has been that degraded, to the level of someone writing his own name wrong.
Good stuff! I was about to suggest Dead Space- I guess as it's tomorrow where you are then you already knew that...
FPS challenge for Zorine? Three words lasses: Clive Barker's Undying. The catacombs level almost made me piss my pants.
Thanks Jess. :)
Call of Cthulhu is one of the best survival horror games I've ever played. Hotel escape level (especially 'close/open the door & get to the roof' part) is almost exactly like original short story "The Shadow over Innsmouth" by H.P. Lovecraft. Game is quite long and hard. It can be really scary if you're playing alone.
If you haven't already, you girls should read some H.P.Lovecraft, that will really rock your socks off. I recommend "The Dreamquest of Unknown Kadath", it is the Alice in Wonderland of horror stories...and it has cats, the coolest cats ever.
Please try playing a little slower next time if you play an adventure game. I know you have time limitations and all, but the way you play does no justice to this game. It was all you running around meaninglessly. Just let the game show what it's all about next time if it's an adventure game like this one. I still liked it, though.
@GeorgeSyll It is pretty hard playing games as a girl - it's tricky to think about sneaking when I'm deciding what colour to paint my nails or what dress I'll wear the next day. /sarcasm
These videos are pretty well flagged in the title so if it's not your thing you should be able to avoid them. Conversely, if it's the highlights you don't enjoy you can watch us play the whole game on twitch.
@GeorgeSyll I take gaming pretty seriously, but I'm sorry if this episode offended you. It certainly wasn't our intention.
@GeorgeSyll People eliminate fear with jokes, its their way of handling it. :p
@celtic_flav Hello! Sorry you didn't enjoy it, however this is the highlights reel of a two hour stream - not a review.
@celtic_flav Do you mean that you think this show is actually reviewing these games or do you mean that your review of this show is childish?
@SoreThumbsBill Yup. One of the lead devs (Lead Engineer I believe) finished PC version for free, because Bethesda didn't want to invest any more money. He did it, because he loves Lovecraftian lore so much. And PC gaming too I guess. ;)
@theCCyberDDemon I'm not sure I understand what you mean?
@madjack1812 The highlights will be up shortly =]
@maderrin I like this idea. A lot.
@Vojtass Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn. : )
"The Lurker at the Threshold" was my first H.P. Lovecraft book, and one of my favorites.
And, @Zorine -- Yay, you took up the little "challenge" I'd left in the Silent Hill II (part 2) comments. : ) I hope it was worth your time!
@Fursnake I was actually out of books to read, thanks for the recommendation!
@doi4in I think Zorine would like that one.
@neOnSHiFT Indeed, should be Cthulhu.
@DuaMn True. This was the 'choppiest' episode so far. Also the commentary and the game sound overlapped resulting in a one huge glitch. The girls have to decide whether they talk or play.
@Renunciation You mean Fatal Frame II? Haha, I did, and it was unnerving, to say the least.
@Renunciation In Poland Lovecraft's most famous stories were published in "Call of Cthulhu" anthology. So I didn't read in proper order I guess. ;)
Yeah god forbid we watch something fun about videogames for the pure entertainment value.
That music unnerved me enough when I first heard it, I couldn't help but sit staring and paralyzed as the imagery developed in my mind. The Fatal Frame II segments were equally eerie to me, so I tried synchronizing them, and... well, now you know was that was like. : )
(I hope it wasn't too unnerving, heh ^^' )
