Nancy Drew #30

People have asked if I'm going to do a blind playthrough for Nancy Drew #30. I'll let you viewers decide! Here are the options:

1. I record myself playing the entire game for the first time. This usually results in a lot of stupid mistakes that take me hours to figure out. For example, it took me hours to figure out where Ryan is, in The Deadly Device. Afterwards, I do an "official" video walkthrough. This results in two different walkthroughs, which is pretty redundant.

2. I go back and forth between playing the game on Amateur Sleuth mode, and recording my walkthrough on Master Sleuth mode. Usually, I do this in one-hour segments (because my computer can't handle recording HD games for much longer than that). This cuts down on 90% of the pointless wandering around and stupid mistakes, and it's how I do most of my video walkthroughs.

A blind playthrough is certainly more fun to watch. It will be nice to see your reaction when you get to interact with all the characters, especially Sonny Joon!

Definitely do a blind playthrough! AKA #1

Personally, I enjoy following your blind playthrough . . .while I do my own. :) It makes me feel a little less silly when I get stuck on something (nicer still when you and I end up stumbling around in the same spot. If its more than just me, it can't be that I suck at the game, right? lol) and its a little less. . .annoying than the walkthrough. I mean. . .I can often play my game, while leaving the video to run in the other window, without having you run on ahead of me and spoil something I want to figure out for myself. But, if I get stuck stuck, then the video will be (more or less) where I need it to be to nudge me out of the stuck spot without flat out giving me the answer. IE, sometimes YOUR attempts give me an idea of what to try, without actually telling me what to do. Sort of makes it a little less of a single person game - even though things are already pre-recorded. :)

I know it makes more work for you, but it IS rather fun to play with the blind playthrough. I did it with the last game as well and it was kind of more fun than doing it all by my lonesome. (And yes, the video DID have to get paused at various stages as you went one way, and I went another, but thats ok. :))

Please do the blind play through! They are not boring, but really fun and funny. It would be SOOOOOOOOO cool if you could do it live to sort of "complete the marathon"

#1 by far is funnier! Mistakes and wandering around for hours is all part of gaming!

I'd like to see you do a blind playthrough, but after the stuff you've pointed out I think it would be better if you did a walkthrough, but you have to prmise that you'll act surprised at evrything and make silly jokes as if that were the first time you were playing it.

blind please, I watched the THO and SPY - so for me they were not redundant ;)

I love your blind playthroughs! It's hilarious hearing your first reactions to different events within the game. Of course, I watch all your walkthroughs, but the blind ones are funny.
