We're back to Darkest Dungeon, and we're exploring the ruins again. Unfortunately, the only competent medic is at the pub trying to drown the memory of the last time we explored the ruins, so you guys are on your own. What's the worst that could happen?

In this part, we're back at the Dragon's Gate and we're heading out to find information about where the Black Mages are coming from and, hopefully to find a way to stop Alexandria from invading anyone else. Of course, before we do that we'll stop by Chocobo's Forest to find a couple of Chocographs to collect. We'll also be stopping by Qu's Marsh... Once again, this is all seeming really familiar.

We're back, and we're still exploring the ruins. We've finally reached the point where we can take on the Necromancer Apprentice. This will be our first quest where we have the option to make camp in the dungeon. Making camp is great, it allows you to rest up, recover health and... de-stress? Okay, I'll admit, I forgot to use the option to make camp when I had the chance, and I still don't know what it does.

Also, we get our first chance to use the Leper hero and, I think I'm in love.

It took two parts, but we've finally arrived at Lindblum. Now we'll have the opportunity to resupply, gather information, and plan our next move. Finally things are looking up after that disaster in Cleyra. There's absolutely no way that this can end up being horrifying... right?

In this installment of the blind run we get our first Houndmaster. The Houndmaster has the ability to inflict bleeding damage on the entire enemy part. I decide to exploit this to the fullest.

Also, I finally learn how to use bandages to treat bleeding and antidotes to cure blight. It's three videos in, but I'm finally learning.

We return to Final Fantasy IX, and Dagger is going to have to take a test to see if she can regain her summon magic. What does the test entail? Why chasing an old man around a swamp for half an hour, followed by some literature analysis... Just smile and nod Dagger... just smile and nod.

In this part we take on our second quest. This time we're attempting to clear all the monsters out of a region of the ruins. We gather our party, outfit them for the journey, and send them off on their mission. Guess how long that lasted...

In this episode, we sneak into the depths of Alexandria Castle in order to retrieve Princess Garnet and transport her to the city of Lindblum. Unfortunately, we get found out partway through and things start to go wrong, culminating in our escape vehicle being destroyed and us being dumped in a place full of monsters...

This is all starting to sound really familiar.

As promished, I'm back with a brand new project. I have even acquired a brand new microphone for this new project... Again.

In this series I'll be playing through Darkest Dungeon, a game with permadeath. Those of you who watched the XCOM: Enemy Within ironman run already know how this is going to go...

In this part we find out what happened to the sandstorm and... Well, you've probably already figured out that Alexandria was behind it. Unsurprisingly they follow that up with a ground invasion, so we've got a bit of a fight on our hands.

Join me as we take on the final mission of XCOM: Enemy Within. In this part we finally get a bit of an explanation of where the aliens came from and why they're here. We also get an answer to the question that I'm sure has been burning in the back of your mind for a while" "How's Viking going to fuck this up?"

Watch and find out.

In this episode we explore the city of Cleyra, getting to know it's people and culture and... BOSS FIGHT...

...You done? Okay, we can move on with the story. We also find out a bit more about what happened to Dagger and her group, and begin to understand just how screwed we are.

You may remember that, at the end of the last part, we finally found the location of the EXALT base. Well, in this part we definitely aren't using that information. Absolutely not. What was that? Why is there a jet landing on top of this office building? Umm... I'm sure it's nothing. It's probably just that new aerial pizza delivery company. Yeah, that seems totally normal

Well, we've arrived at Cleyra, and we spend most of the video climbing a tree. A magic tree, surrounded by a sandstorm. We also finally get the Flame Staff.

We've apparently reached the point in our Covert Operations where EXALT has decided to take pity on us, so we have a covert operation where they basically point to the intel and say "Just take it".

The salt is real guys. The salt is real.

As we begin the second leg of our journey through Final Fantasy IX, the narrative decides to take a break from following Zidane and his crew to show us what Dagger and Steiner have been doing all this time. Of course, thanks to our quantum tunneling inventory system they have a bunch of new equipment to try out, and a bunch of new abilities to learn. We also find our second friendly enemy and another Stellazzo.

Well, we did it. We finally managed to shoot down a UFO. Of course, now we need to raid it, and that means fighting a new enemy type, the Etherial. Say it with me kids "What could possibly go wrong?"

Our Let's Play of XCOM: Enemy Within continues, and things keep going much as they had been. We still can't shoot down a UFO to save our lives, squadies are still a form of ablative armor, and sectopods are still the stuff of nightmares. Good times.

In this installment, we take on a council mission, and since we'll only be facing thin men, I assume the mission won't be so hard, and someone dies.

Later, we take on a covert operation, and since we'll be facing EXALT, I assume the mission won't be so hard... and someone dies.

I really need to learn to keep my mouth shut.

Hello everyone, I'm Science Viking. On this channel I will be showing off games that I love. Some will be new releases, some old classics, and everything in between. Feel free to join me on this journey through some of gaming's best and brightest, and who knows, you might discover a new favorite yourself along the way. Or, you might just sit back and laugh at my taste in games. Either way, it'll be fun.

Remember, I love you all. See you around.
