Let'S Play

A Let's Play (often abbreviated to "LP") is a series of screenshots or a recorded video documenting a playthrough of a video game, usually including commentary by the gamer. An LP differs from a walkthrough or strategy guide by focusing on an individual's subjective experience with the game, often with humorous, irreverent, or even critical commentary from the gamer, rather than being an objective source of information on how to progress through the game.

    • PN Let’s Play: Super Metroid Episode 3

      Joining Matt this week are Tristan Meiman and Trevor Gould. Listen as we make 90s and 80s references, watch as Matt completely forgets an essential weapon, marvel at how no one reminded him. This week, we are trying something a bit different. After the recording, we thought about some of our discussion, and how not everyone my know these references.

    … is usually considered niche, especially relative to the classic King’s Quest and other “quest”-themed series. Of course, The Colonel’s Bequest, about the inheritance to be left by a mysterious, cranky old bayou patriarch, also has the word “quest” in the title. Cute.
