And yes I go by Lacreya on Youtube

I wanted to do a let's play for a while, and in the end it was between Legend of Dragoon (Which would end up being ungodly long even if I didn't plan on getting everything. XD) and Spyro: Year of the Dragon, my favorite of the original trio.

It was TwistedPuppy and TwilightBlade (Oh yeah. Both Trade Corner mods) that convinced me to do Spyro. XD So here is the result. I'm doing a One level a video type-thing. And I find myself kind of awkward the first two episodes. But still.

And I am trying to fix my sound issues, but I can't seem to record the sound on its own so I am dependant on what my mic pics up.

Anywho, here are the first 3 episodes.... -which total an hour of footage. XD-

Spoiler:

First episode.... Socially awkward penguin go...

Episode 2.... Losing the awkwardness if only slightly.

Episode 3.... freakin lizards. XD Freaking. Lizards. And an ALMOST cuss... I managed to catch myself.

OH! MY! GOD! This is the greatest thing ever! I'm probably never going to have the chance to play Spyro: Year of the Dragon again, due to my brother selling his PS2 and not wanting to pay for it on the PlayStation Store, so this is completely up my alley.

I really like it so far. The sound could use a bit of work, but it's not really that detrimental to the viewing experience, as most of the voicey parts have their own subtitles. But, yeah: please keep up the good work. You have a loyal listener in me.

Oh wow. It's unfortunate that you can't play it. I'm glad that I can help you... not miss out I guess? idk. XD

And I am really glad you like it. I just don't know how to do the sound without like... killing my own ears, y'know? Or bothering my neighbors. It... It's kinda difficult. XD But I'll figure somethin out. :3

Thanks for the support~

Also: Update with episode 4 now~
I lost what to say so many times. XD

I managed to catch your LP from the index, and had to check it out. The Spyro trilogy is one of my favorite nostalgic video game series. While watching your LP, everything about the game came to mind. (I wish I could play again, but I don't know where my CD is.)

I'll have to remember to check back on this thread. Looking forward to more!

Tiki Tiki Lodge! This level, and some of the Spacey levels towards the end, is one of the few I can remember quite vividly, so it was nice to actually see it again. And have a reminder of Sgt Byrd's awesomeness. Keep it up. :D

D'aww I hope you find your disc soon~ It's good to know I'm not the only one going on a massive nostalgia trip here. Thank you~!

I may give a reference to you in the episode where I do Sgt Byrd's level. :3 And I intend to, thank you~

For those of you who saw my blog, I took a few phrases to squeeze into the episode.... I had 11 (woulda been 12 if I found Mr Cat Dog's on time) phrases and managed to say all of them in this half hour episode.... It's only so long because Twisted was upset about how short episode 5 was.... So enjoy that last level and boss people~ As well as random word sheninigans.

THAT'S the other name to Ripto's Rage. I was grilling my mind for it all day yesterday. XD I may do that one next because I had been requested to do so. XD

No, the Speedways are great! You get to fly and go through rings and flame spiders. What's not to like? Keep up the good work!

I couldn't remember the name of it, but this is one of the few levels that I can actually recall playing quite vividly (the other is a space-y one with Agent 9... I imagine you'll get there eventually!). Nice to see it without having to resort to memory. And keep up the longer videos! They're the best ones. :D

I still remember a lot of the classic Spyro games, Year of the Dragon had a good storyline and was the first Spyro game to have other playable characters (Sparx, Hunter, Sheila, Sgt. Byrd, Agent 9 and Bentley).

I liked Agent 9 cos he's a monkey and I like monkeys.

And two particular minor characters (Handel and Greta from Gateway to Glimmer) made an appearance again.

Haha I love chasing the thieves. Ever since spyro one it was always one of my favorite things!

And will do!

Yes. And Gateway to Glimmer is called Ripto's Rage where I'm from so when I do an LP of that (big request) that's what I'll be calling it. And I agree. It was pretty awesome.

And Agent 9 is one of my favorites too. He's freakin insane.

Bianca, Shiela and Agent 9 always ranked among mine... Bentley was an awesome character but I would have loved a bit more speed and jumping on him. He lives in the mountains after all.....

But episode 11 time!

Spoiler:

I hate this level. I hate this level. I hate this level....
Also, more info on the excitement here

New episode n___n

I always struggled on that Shelia level, the hardest out of them IMO.
Btw, after Spyro 3 I suggest you do Spyro 2... that is if you are planning on doing more.

Glad that makes ya happy. ^-^

I do intend to do more. :3 And it will be 2. Even though there is one orb challenge I know I will struggle with. I have gotten like 5 requests for it so I figured hey why not. And that IS the hardest shiela challenge... Why did he have to go AROUND the house? Why did the other one think about it?

I'll always remember Bianca, she apparently a magical rabbit who went on to make a few more appearances in some later Spyro games.

For me personally, I wasn't as big a fan of this episode, unfortunately. I appreciate that the level is hard and kinda annoying, but there were numerous occasions when I was practically yelling at my laptop screen to just stop talking (or yelling) whenever you got bitten by a piranha or a bomb went off in the Sheila level. Up until now, your frustrations were an endearing feature of these LPs, but I just couldn't sympathise with you on this occasion, unfortunately.

However, your Tigger shout-out was all kinds of wonderful. That made me smile a lot. :D
