Background
GRcade Plays is an activity in which GRcadians play through a game together. People can progress at their own pace, sharing their thoughts and asking for help as they go through. You can play on any format that the game is available on.

Below is a table listing all of the players, the format that they're playing on and notes about previous experience of the game. If you want to join in, please post the details in this thread and I'll update the table.

Please take care not to give major spoilers away as you progress through the adventure - especially if you're racing ahead! Use the spoiler box functionality if appropriate.

Let the gaming commence... NOW!

The game's levels
01) Spiral Mountain
02) Mumbo's Mountain
03) Treasure Cove Trove
04) Clanker's Cavern
05) Bubblegloop Swamp
06) Freezeezy Peak
07) Gobi's Valley

I'm going to set up my 360 again and play it there. I read up on the changes to the XBLA version and I like the idea of having the game save which collectibles I've found after exiting a level. This gives me a good excuse to set up my 360 again and play some Perfect Dark :P

Oh this started? Cool I'll start 360 version :)

I assume for this week we just do first level? Or can we tackle as many as we want to?

That's beyond my technical skills, Hypes, but I hope that you can join in!

Great stuff, Dragon, I'll update the records.

I propose that we can progress at any speed, Seven. Some folk had already started the game so I think we'll have a few people on various levels. I'm gonna start at level 1 later tonight. It's all good!

If I'm going to play it I'll probably have to emulate it.

Is your 360 proving a bit unreliable, TWA? Would the PC be a viable option for you?

And, just as importantly... is there a chance that we'll see some TWA artistry? Even a little pic would be ace...

Alllllright! Frank's on board and this show is really taking off :-).

I'll leave the "player details" updates until later this evening so that I can do them in a single hit.

I don't own a 360, I just borrow my sisters from time to time. But its a piece of junk which hardly works now and she had to delete everything to be able to play GTAV. So more likely I'm emulate it. If I can get that to work. :lol: Do we have a time table to stick to like OOT?

I'm thinking dude. I've got a bit of an idea.

This is a whole new game to me, I can barely remember any of it.

The 'collectables are kept when you exit/die' thing sounds like a great new feature on the 360 version - Already I'm surprised how easily I die and lose the lot! I'd forgotten just how many things there are to collect in each level.

:(
...

oh yeah! save states! :toot:

As some players have already started the adventure I proposed that we can each go at our own pace. Parallel B-K journies :D .

I think I'll be the same, Lime. It's great that so many GRcadians are really feeling this!
