IntroductionHey guys, remember when I started this LP and then I had to let it go due to family stuff? Well, it's about time I finished it off!
(Original thread here)
Get it all started by playing this remix to get you in the mood!
These games contain sudden flashes of white at certain points, please be advised that if you are prone to seizures triggered by such things that you should take precaution when watching these videos.
What do you get when you combine pre-rendered 3D graphics, a passable story at best, wacky catchphrases, and soul-crushing difficulty?
You get possibly the best designed game for the Sega Genesis.
Platform: Sega Genesis/Megadrive
Genre: Platformer (Mostly)
Release Date: VM1 - 1995, VM2 - 1996
Developer: BlueSky Software
Story: Vectorman is set in a future where the Earth got so trashed that humans left the planet; robots (orbots?) were left behind to clean shit up so when the humans get back, the place is nice and neat (I was wondering where Pixar got the idea). While Vectorman was dumping trash on the sun, his supervisor was the victim of a workplace accident that caused him to turn evil and want to destroy the world or something. Vectorman returns from his trip hoping for a nice break but finds out that NOW HE HAS TO DEAL WITH THIS SHIT?!?
I'll be playing both Vectorman games released on the Genesis/Megadrive. These games are known for their brutal difficulty even on the easiest settings; naturally I'll be playing on the hardest difficulty setting possible . I've never actually beaten them on this setting (I have on the medium difficulty) so this will be a journey for me as well as you.
So come, join me as I possibly lose my mind.
