Let's All Play: Oregon Trail


Recommended Posts

Let's All Play Oregon Trail!

The rules are pretty basic:

Play the game through on Farmer (Hard).

You may name your wagon team anything you want.

You may buy any supplies you can and may start from any month.

You may hunt whenever you want.

You may take whatever directions you wish.

You do NOT have to do the river-floating minigame if you can avoid it.

After you play through, post your video and score you earned in the thread. At the end, we compare points to see who wins. Multiple rounds are a possibility if it's voted for.

Anybody who wants in can play the game here: http://www.virtualapple.org/ You will have to install their plugin to Firefox, but as of yet, I've had few issues with it. If you choose to, I believe they also provide it fore actual download, if you want to use an emulator.

Videos:

Lone Magician

Party: Buki, Crube, Artie, and Samurai Drifter

Party: Brian, Coffee, Indie, and Ikari

And because LeadingMan is a dick and felt like doing something else entirely but still wanted to contribute...

Party: AmbeRose, Wind, Amy, and Siendra

The problem with that is that there are only 5 people per wagon. We'd either have to do it in teams, which means there would only be a few teams AND we would either only have one round OR have many rounds. I dunno if I'm up for doing a lot of rounds, I'd have to think about it. I don't want the thing to die because I or somebody else doesn't have time to do a video.

Also, it seems the difficulty has been voted for and came out as Farmer (Hard).

Vote for how many rounds at the top! You may need to click "Delete My Vote" if you have the option.

We don't need to do it in rounds. Bring up a list of people interested in doing a LP, once we're locked in with them, write them down in one thread and then have them select 5 members here. We can let other members post if they want to join in with a certain person, but that's not really needed if the captain/LPer already had 5 remembers in mind. If a member doesn't get picked then they just don't get picked.

This could be a blast.

Oh, so basically, we pick people to be in our wagon, and whoever dies on the way to Oregon is out? If that's the case, I think we should do multiple rounds, so as to have an overall winner, or at least an overall winning 4 people. Then, in the last round, the 4 people left (or however many are left, plus a few stand-ins that don't count) can head out to Oregon and see who survives. I say 4 people because, when I play, the leader (in this case, it should be the LPer), never seems to get sick or hurt until everybody else is dead. I think we could factor that in, too.

Well, I'm itching to get started on this soon, so what does everybody want to do? I'd be down with loading up wagons of active AE Members and those who die along the way get crossed off, and we keep going until there are only a wagon-full of people left (or whoever is left + some placeholders) and see who makes it to Oregon out of those people.

If that's the route we go, we'll need a list of active members and a list of who wants in.

Of somebody can come up with a list of active member names, we could totally do survivor or something.

Put together in only a few mins so it's not alphabetized and a few people I'm sure were left out. If anyone wants to make a better list go right ahead.

They say there's an alluring call out there. A call for freedom, fortune and independence. A call that strikes every man at some point in his life, and he has to examine his surroundings and make a fateful choice. The choice between adventure and comfort, between the dream of a brighter tomorrow and security ... The choice between walking through the fucking desert and getting dysentary while being mauled by bears or living near all these goddamn Irish in New York City...

A choice that inevitably leads many to:

Welcome to LeadingMan's Screenshot LP of the New Oregon Trail on the iphone and many other mobile devices.

As per the rules of the thread we're starting off as the farmer, who has the least money in comparison to the other jobs but his food stores deteriorate less slowly.

First up, let's name this family!

oregon40ea.png

Oh no... This won't do at all. Who the fuck wants to willingly be named Buck?

oregon568e.png

Much better, and don't tell Amy this, but I think Siendra's growing up to be the prettiest.

Our next choice is for the wagon load out. Let's see... First we have a boring economy style wagon, cheap but useable. We have one which is built to store a ton of food, and since we're a farmer this is useless... And we have A FUCKING TANK.

oregon7449.png

The choice is obvious. Oh and yes, game... I know that's precisely what I think of when I see armor plating and a giant cowcatcher on the front... Boats.

The last decision is when to depart. You can choose in the terrible frigid cold with great risk to family, our oxen and even food storage and only a madman would leave... In the early cool spring hoping you make it there before summer. And in the late spring, knowing you definately will be passing through nevada in the blistering heat of our great sun's scorn for humanity.

Well everything looks about right.

On a side note, Ezra Meeker is retarded. Anyways, it's time to hit the old dusty trail.

The date is in red so this game can be edukashunal. I mean, I know that's why I bought my iphone... to learn. It certainly didn't have anything to do with establishing a personal and worldwide connection to limitless porn.

I swear to god... If you two don't shut up, the next WoW killer you hear about will be me creeping up beside you two while you sleep and strangling the ever-loving shit out of you two while gently caressing your hair as you slip into the comforting blackness of eternal night... and as you breath your final breath the last thing you will hear in this world is me joyfully crying as I assure myself "Wow, I am finally free..."

Well... I'm off to go kill shit. Be back in a few.

Our gruff scarred wagon-master reveals the finer points of hunting. Touch an animal to kill it. Just like a 4 year old.

oregon303f0.png

Once you done killed the varmit you touch it's conviently presliced meat to walk over and pick it up.

oregon31829.png

I continue hunting past his infernal preset kill limit, no being in my way shall survive my wrath.

oregon32128.png

And just like that we're done and the bloodlust subsides. I "really hope" I didn't shoot anyone I loved in my anger...

oregon3312d.png

Ah, they're fine I see. Good... good... ... Anyways, the hunting sections scale in difficulty. It won't be long before I'm hunting deer, moose, bears and whatever else gets on the other end of this rifle... If it is god, then god too shall be shot.

oregon34590.png

Well, this trail ain't going to traverse it's itself. Amber, get the kids ready it's time to get the lead out pudgy...
