I think most or all of us will have played before, and half the fun will be chatting about Easter Eggs and things that referrence stuff we know with foresight happens later in the series

 

Spoiler

 

 

Anyway I recently started and am on chapter 2 but won't get to play much more, probably not at all with my parents coming to visit until next week. The schedule is about right for me

Sure sometimes holidays and other RL stuff might get in the way, but we can catch up or play ahead in advance

 

@Jecica Away all July ? Cool !, somewhere fun ?

I think if we all waited till September / October the scheduling would be rather tight to keep things together as a group, but no reason you couldn't read through posts here as you play; I'm sure we'd all love to read and answer any comments you have as you do :)

 

Anyway just my opinion and preferences at the end of the day...if people did start as a group somewhat later I'll still follow the thread and likely pitch in (and my progress may end up lagging into sync in time)

While I agree with you, the point of a Let's Play is to appreciate the moments of the game at hand. I mean why else have a community play through? This entire forum could be used to discuss the game further. The point is to share in the experience together as we near the release of Chapters. Playing through it like this would allow us to remember the funny and sad and just plain amazing points of this game.

Going to Greece, island Thasos for some long-awaited vacation :D

I decided on September to play TLJ/DF because that's closer to the DFC release so that I can experience it to the fullest. The other reason is I have a huge backlog of games, and there's also much anticipated Dragon Age Inquisition coming up in October... We'll see, maybe I manage to join you guys here along the way.

I'm in. I could make a Let's Play, too, if people wanted. But I don't know if I'd be any good at it.

April Ryan is my friend,
Every sorrow she can mend.
When I visit her dark realm,
Does it simply overwhelm.

I've already started my playthrough of TLJ and don't really want to start all over again so I'm not going to take part in that one, but, I will be happy to take part in the dreamfall half. :)

Great idea! I'll try to join in from time to time, but keeping a schedule is hard during the summer so I'll probably only watch a play through. It would be extra fun if it was made by someone on the forums though!

i'd be interested in watching a live play though or some sort, or maybe a lets play style video from some one who knows the game/story/ and all the theory's we have had over the years really well.

as it stand I wont bother playing along with a schedule, I can remember almost every single line of dialog in both games with out too much of a reminder ;)

Well then, I recommend not watching my play through if I can figure out how to record it. ;)

 

Seriously, though, I haven't played through the game in years and I wasn't on the old forum, so fan theories are not my specialty. So I'm either going to seriously brush up to try to have an informative play through, or just let you guys laugh at me while I ramble and then get stuck and swear at the game. :P Not sure what people would rather watch. 

 

In all seriousness, though, if anyone does really want to see a forum made play through and has certain topics they'd like to see discussed, feel free to post them or PM them to me. I think my boyfriend is letting me borrow his headset and I also think I found a program that will work for recording.

heh, im sure i'd be interested in watching it :)

If you have an nvidia gpu, try nvidia shadow play.
FRAPS is very popular and easy to use also (I use it to record wow raid runs for my team). Its a bit cpu heavy tho.
d3dgear and movavi are ok too, but I think they all cost abit of money :/

Just for gods sake remember to put Wonkers brain back in, Ragnar didnt in the live playthough. I was most distressed.

I replaying TLJ and Dreamfall now and search for every little clue/hint about story.

 

Notification 1 - Balance pictures (TLJ)

 

During first shift to Arcadia April ended in Temple and Tobias told her the story of Balance. In the very first picture, set in pre-Divide Earth you can see a HUGE TOWER, the man who used it for something and next picture presents Apocalypse, Chaos and start of Divide Tobias said that Chaos was a result of mixing science and magic. Hey isn't the same situation happend in Dreamfall? Dream Conspiracy used science and magic. The blueprints for Azadi Tower can be found in Necropolis and Necropolis can be pre-Divide city. So this means that Tower existed once and now is rebuild. Also Dream Conspiracy allows to control both worlds - Dream Machines in Stark steal your dreams and you became a drone and Tower in Arcadia can harvest captured dreams and use Dream Storm as fake sign from Azadi Goddess to fool other Arcadia nations.

 

So the Prophet must be someone who knew about that old Tower and what happend on old Earth before...one of 12 Sentinels or Dragon?

Okay, so maybe "most" theories. "Some". "A select few."

This is really cool :D don't think I'll be playing along for TLJ (played it during the kickstarter so I feel it's fresh enough) but will be following the discussion. And I'll probably join the Dreamfall playthrough :)

- Why April is daughter of Mother? Who is her father?

- Who is Lady Alvane? Well in TLJ it was obvious but Dreamfall changed the situation...

- What happend with McAllen's plans about Warrior Shifters?

- What happend with McAllen and Cortez?
