Sir Candle's Winter of Regret

edited Dec 2010 in Gaming
As of right now I have 171 games that I've purchased on Steam. Also as of now, I have barely played around 60 of them, if I've even ever installed them. More if you want to count expansions and such.
I'm planning on forcing myself to play every one of those games for at least one hour. Hopefully, this should stop me from repeating last year (I dropped over $200 on games during the Christmas sale).
You all might be wondering why I'm posting this here. Well, I've also decided to livestream the whole damn thing. I would be delighted if you guys joined up and supported me through this, as I'm sure I'll need it.
Here is a link to my Livestream page for future reference, and I'll also update this post when I have a more concrete starting time.

Here is a list of all the games I have, I will be playing almost everything that shows playtime to be under 1 hour.

I am very open to any other suggestions!
Happy Holidays all!

Coming Soon: (Hopefully within this week)
Call of Cthulu: Dark Corners of the Earth
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
Painkiller Overdose
Quake
Zeno Clash



Progress:
12/6/10 Gothic 2: Broken
12/6/10 Gothic 3: Elder Scrolls, but shitty.

    Cool Idea. If I'm available when you stream, I'd watch.

    Have you decided an order yet? One suggestion would be to set a schedule so if people are interested in watching a certain game then can plan when you will be playing.

    Keep us posted

    I've tried running a vent-like program but it creates an echo for those watching and in the vent. There is a chat for the feed and I'll be keeping an eye on that. And you should be able to hear me through the feed as well.

    ALSO! I've decided to start RIGHT NOW! I'm going to play Gothic 2 and maybe 3 if I have time. I want to get these out of the way as a semi-test. See you if you can make it!
    Gothic 2 is fucking messed up.
    Lets try 3!

    This week is the last week I'm working for Christmas break. I have about 4 weeks of absolutely NOTHING TO DO!
    And, with the Christmas sale coming up, and with some money I have recently come in to......

    ALSO! I played Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. It was actually pretty fun but I couldn't figure out how to save the game, or the livestream video apparently.
    I also realized I can't edit my first post anymore. Bummer.

    Which path did you take? Or did you not get that far?

    I don't think I got that far. I also couldn't figure out how to save....

    Yeah, I have a version that I run on SCUMMVM, so I dunno how Steam treats saving. I always just mash the function keys until one brings up a menu. *shrug*

    It started out in a windowed mode with some options at top, but once I maxed it, they disappeared.
    Oh well, I've got plenty more of those adventure games to play. I'll figure it out one of these times.
