So I love Descent, obviously or I wouldn't be here. Just a bit of back-story : I've already done a Let's Play of the game through a modification wherein I converted the Descent 1 levels into Descent 2 format, and added in the various Descent 2 weapons. Which I then run through D2X Rebirth (which is a fantastic source port btw). So I ran my Descent 1 conversion through the D2X Rebirth engine, the game balances out though because the Descent II AI is much smarter than the Descent AI. You can find my Let's Play of what I call Descent 1+ here : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... PdB0aVBChK
Anyway, with that out of the way, what I thought I would try here is... this is just a prototype more or less. Something I've wanted to try for quite some time. There's quite a few Let's Players who show their faces on screen on camera so you can their reaction (and I've dabbled in that a bit). But I thought it might be more interesting to watch my hands actually work the controls instead. So this is something of a prototype to see how well it goes and how interesting you guys find it.
Unfortunately there are some technical limitations that i have to deal with or otherwise work out, for instance, using the phone's camera and the LED light simultaneously drains an enormous amount of battery, even while plugged in. Also the mount sort of thing for the phone is extremely limited in positioning at the moment. So you can only see my left-hand, and I'm not sure if this is going to be interesting enough to merit the financial expenditure of an actual tripod. You can see how delicately jury-rigged I am at 18:05 when the camera falls over. I don't really have so much to work with here, I do what I can with the resources available you know?
Anyway, let me know if you find this interesting or not.
Gameplay starts at 1:00 or so.
