Introduction



About the Game
Kameo: Elements Of Power is an action-adventure game from legendary developers Rare about an elf with body image issues slaughtering untold numbers of trolls to settle a sibling rivalry. It began development for release on the Gamecube, but when Rare was bought out by Microsoft in 2002, it faced problems while undergoing redesign for the Xbox and was eventually put on indefinite hiatus in 2004. Ultimately, though, it became the first game announced for release on the Xbox 360 and finally saw the light of day as a 360 launch title, along with another long-anticipated Rare title, Perfect Dark Zero. Then a couple people played Kameo and some of them seemed to like it okay.

About the LP
I'm a life-long Rare fan, but I more or less fell out with them after they got done dominating the N64, so I had hardly even heard of this game until my co-commentator Ruebinok offhandedly mentioned loving it back when it was new. I checked it out and I've been increasingly impressed by it ever since. Ruebinok and I check out the beginning of the game live and blind in the first three videos, and from the fourth video on I'm taking it solo with post commentary to show off 100% of the game.

Daigerus responds to all this costume madness with literally the best thing ever (featuring mild spoilers for stuff that's dumb anyway):

Daigerus posted:

Ah, so we're playing dress up now? Well, two can play at that game, game!



Ash, tired of having skinny arms, decides to follow Pummel Weed's example with great success.



This prompted a few other Warriors to follow suit, but Deep Blue still needs to trim a few pounds.



And tired of being outshone by his horticultural brethren, Snare attempts to branch out (a new pair of arms) and join up.

And for those who wish that rascaly Mystic got her just desserts, here's her being crushed by a giant rock:
