Two Let's Plays at the same time? Sheer madness.

Okay, kidding aside, I've been meaning to replay Suikoden 2 for ages, so I figured I may as well record it and post it online while I'm at it. This is my favorite PS1 RPG and in fact one of my favorite RPGs of all time, plus it's horridly rare and expensive due to a limited printing run, so hell, let's make the best of it and share it with the world.

And yes, I do own a legitimate copy of the game. Proof. I just don't have a capture device that works with Windows 7, so I'm running and recording it via an emulator. So there.


Damn it all. I've spent the last three hours trying to record footage for the game, but it's consistently failed due to choppy framerates (in FRAPS), shitty emulation (pretty much every emulator I tried) or the god damn program not saving the movie file properly despite repeated attempts (Camstudio). Looks like this one is on hold for now.

In the meantime, here's the only bit of footage I could salvage from this whole mess, the introductory sequence. One of only three or four FMVs in the entire game!

Suikoden is loosely based on the classical chinese novel "Water Margin". Aside from a handful of similar themes and characters, though, they don't have all that much in common.
