What is this game?

Lego City: Undercover is a game released in 2013 by Travelers Tales (AKA the guys who make all Lego games) chronicling the adventures of Chase McCain as he returns from exile trying to bring master criminal Rex Fury to justice. This is a game that I quite enjoy despite the infamous loading screens and the fact that the postgame is massive, maybe too big for it's own good, but that point means that each of the mechanics gets plenty of playtime.

Format of the LP

I will be running through the game at a normal pace, doing side stuff as it is en route but not going too far out of the way unless I feel it will save a lot of time in the long run (There's one detour that I'm going to take as soon as I get the mechanics unlocked). I will endeavor to get 100% of the stuff in this game, which I have done twice before so I know roughly where everything is.

This will also be my first attempt at Live Commentary, so we'll see how that goes.

A pitfall is that I only have the Wii U version of the game, because I don't feel like dropping £40 on a game I already own. This means that anything that happens on the tablet is invisible to the audience as there is no good way to record the tablet controller that I have access to, but all the audience will be missing out on is the video part of video calls (The audience will still get the audio as it pipes through the main TV). For menu-heavy mechanics, like shops, I will show all costumes and vehicles unlocked in bonus videos as they become relevant.

Thread Rules/Spoiler Policy

This game has a surprisingly intricate plot, so please no spoilers about where the plot goes, even in tags. If it's not in a video, don't talk about it. Also don't point out where things are being "missed" - if there is something I could be doing but aren't there is a reason. I know it's there, but it's likely to be too far out of the way to bother with right then. With a few exceptions I won't be starting something that I cannot finish right then for clarity's sake.
