A Girl Solves Problems With Her Rock Hard Friend, Let's Play Primal
Primal is an adventure game originally released for the PS2 in 2003 by SCE Studio Cambridge and was re-released on the Playstation Network in 2012. I'm playing the original PS2 version.
The game itself tells a gothic tale of Jennifer Tate becoming a ghost in order to find her boyfriend with the help of a gargoyle buddy Scree. The notable hook of the game is that Jen will unlock the ability to transform into permutations of the denizens of the assorted worlds she visits. It's rather like Majora's Mask in that vein.
I've originally played this game several times in my formative years and really enjoyed it. I'm going through this game again with Jakale (who watched my original play), Arcanum (beat Solum years ago), and Anoch (never heard of this game). Along the way I'll find all the collectible tarot cards (28 in total) which unlock some nifty concept art and will display the cards below. There are also bonus behind the scenes videos unlocked during normal gameplay that I'll likely make as side videos as they're unlocked.
Videos will be entirely post-commentary with uncut footage. Updates should occur weekly.
I feel the game went under the radar for a fair number of folks. As such I'd ask to keep discussion limited to the story as it happens.
