I'm not sure yet if I'm in... but if I find the time this weekend, would you prefer I played the German or the English version...?

You can play whichever version you prefer. I assume that most of us will be playing the English version, but if you prefer to play in German then that's fine. :)

That wasn't quite what I was after... in fact, I was wondering whether a comparison of language versions could be of actual use to the community.

Digging out the German DVD would be the greater hassle, actually.

Well i've hit my first hurdle in this, my laptop has decided it doesn't want to read discs anymore. Sooo i can't install and play my copy of TLJ. :mellow:

 

Sooo GOG or Steam boys and girls, which one is better? I have Dreamfall on GOG so tempted to get it from there.

I don't know how much difference it really makes. If you have DF on GOG, I'd just get TLJ on GOG. 

 

Oh, and V, I'm kind of curious about the differences in the translations of the game. It could be sort of interesting to discuss. But if it's a hassle to dig up your German copy, don't worry too much about it.

I'll be starting my play through of this tonight or tomorrow. I don't believe I'll be able to do a Let's Play because I wasn't able to find good software to do one. If anyone has any good software ideas to record Let's Plays let me know!

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 :/

I have no idea why I didn't see that. I do have an nvidia gpu, so I'll look into this. Thanks.

I have two of them. ;)

 

But I guess I'll go for English nonetheless - so I get into the correct terminology for Chapters. I will miss the opportunity to once and for all disprove the false assumption that in the German version, Crow would call Lady Alvane "April". ;)

Notifications 3 - things in TLJ and Dreamfall:

 

TLJ:

 

- Lady Alvane said that she heared April's story so she can't be April,

- Cortez seems to be behind April's dreams, maybe Red Dragon is maker of dreams?

- after first shift April load in Temple in Marcuria - place where Dream Chamber is located below,

- Vanguard fully control Venice,

- Pictures about history of Balance holds some Dreamfall things - huge tower, storm and hooked man,

- the one Draic Kin who found Fathers looking like Prophet from Dreamfall,

- McAllen mentioned Warrior Shifters,

 

Dreamfall:

 

- Prophet must be someone who knows about pre-Divide history about powerfull tower and chaos - so Dragon or one of 12 Sentinels,

- Dreamer and Tower allow someone to control both worlds,

- both WATI and Azadi are fooled by someone,

- Chang co-work with Gillmore - remove of Faith allowed WATI to release Dreamer at time,

- Damien can work for Gillmore or Chang,

- White Lady is White Dragon,

- White Dragon told Faith to find Zoe and lead her to save April,

 

Ragnar said that there are still remains of pre-Divide civilization in TLJ universe. So yeah, i think that Necropolis/Underground city is the one and Prophet must know about it. WATIcorp and Azadi are mixing science and magic. Magic leak from Arcadia to Stark and science leak from Stark to Arcadia.

 

Connection:

 

- huge tower in pre-Divide picture

- Chaos Storm and Apocalypse in next picture,

- blue prints for huge tower in Necropolis,

- huge Azadi Tower in Marcuria,

- Chaos Storm/Dream Storm at Azadi Tower,

 

CORTEZ is the one who send Brian for Undreaming in 1933 so...???

We're about halfway through the week now, so how are we all doing? I've been a bit busier than I expected this weekend, so I've only played the prologue so far, but I'll get on with chapters one and two soon. :)

Was INTENDING to do / record my playthrough of the first part this weekend, but due to some BS with helping a friend move that just really didn't happen. So the goal is to do it tonight. Fingers crossed.

Awesome, i'm going to start TLJ tomorrow night as i'm just about fit to pass out right now lol. Plus I don't have to go to work wednesday, so maybe after the football i'll get on to TLJ and get through chapter 1&2. :)

*sigh* Running into some serious driver issues trying to get this whole "Let's Play" thing to work. I'm HOPING to have it sorted soon, but at this rate I'm either going to have to actually record the thing tomorrow or I'm just going to say eff it and no video. :(

 

EDIT: After MUCH trial and error, I think I finally got adequate recording running / tested. So now TOMORROW will be the day of truth for the recording and stuff. Ugh.

I'm all for this community playthrough, but I won't be able to get into it in a while yet. :( Perhaps for Dreamfall.

I love Prologue in TLJ. Fantastic landscape, Tree puzzle and Mother. I think that this is a place where April's journey will end.

I really hope we'll meet Fiona and Mickey again in DFC! :D

Just a quick question for when we get to the Dreamfall playthrough: will the game work with an X-Box 360 style controller? I've only ever played DF on an XBox and have heard that the PC controls are a little chunky.
