The Banner Saga Playthrough Finale

Welcome to the sixth and final part of my playthrough of The Banner Saga! I know it’s extremely late, but I got distracted with my Sunless Skies Playthrough, which you can check out here.

If you haven’t watched my previous videos, I strongly suggest watching them before this one. You can find them here: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five.

This video focuses on my (successful!) reattempt of the final battle, as well as the closing cutscenes. I even linger on the credits for a bit so you can listen to the fantastic soundtrack, if you want.

Thank you for watching my playthrough, please support the developers at Stoic Studios by purchasing their games and soundtracks.  The Banner Saga Trilogy is available on all major platforms (including smartphones) and is rated T for Teen.

The Banner Saga Playthrough-Part Five

 

Hey everyone, and welcome to the penultimate chapter in my playthrough of the Banner Saga!

If you’re new to my playthrough but are interested in watching, I’d strongly recommend going back and watching Parts OneTwoThree and Four first.

In this episode, I play through most of Chapter 7, and promptly lose to the final boss because I’m very rusty at the game. Rook and friends are finally reunited, along with some new allies and potential foes. But they have little time for reunion, as Bellower is already here, and the final battle (at least for the first game!) is upon them.

Next time I will replay and (hopefully) beat the final battle, and watch the ending. Tissues recommended for the credits.

If you’ve enjoyed my playthrough so far continue to watch and please and support the developers at Stoic Studios by purchasing their games and soundtracks.  The Banner Saga Trilogy is available on all major platforms (including smartphones) and is rated T for Teen.

The Banner Saga Playthrough-Part Four

Hey everyone, welcome back to my playthrough of The Banner Saga!  Today I’ll be playing Chapters Five and Six.

If you’re new to my playthrough but are interested in watching, I’d strongly recommend going back and watching Parts One, Two, and Three first.

Chapter Five is very short ( as in less than 10 minutes) and introduces a new, and very important, character in addition to expanding on the world’s mythology.  Chapter Six returns to a more traditional format and follows Rook’s journey, as well as how terrible I am at resource management.

The Banner Saga Playthrough-Part Three

Greetings, to the several people who are watching my playthrough of The Banner Saga.  Last week I took a brief hiatus for Thanksgiving, and now we’ll jump right back into the action with Chapter Four.

If you’re new to my playthrough but are interested in watching, I’d strongly recommend going back and watching Part One and Part Two first.

Chapter Four returns to Rook and friends as they realize their newly found haven may not be as safe as they initially expected and follows them as they seek new shelter from the encroaching Dredge.

The Banner Saga Playthrough-Part Two

Hey everyone, I’m back with the second part of my The Banner Saga playthrough.  Remember how I promised it would be shorter?  Well, it technically is, but only by like 10 minutes.  Apparently, Chapter Three was much longer than I remembered.

If you haven’t watched the first part you can watch it here.

Chapter Three focuses on Hakon’s party as they continue their journey in the wake of SPOILER’s death, and continue to face the unexpected threat of the Dredge.

If you miss my traditional blog posts, worry not, because next time I will be writing another of my in-depth theological examination.

The Banner Saga Playthrough-Part One

Hey everybody, I know, I haven’t written a post of any kind in forever.  I have no good excuse for not doing any, so I’m not going to offer one, instead, I’ll just start creating new ones on a more regular basis.

In addition to normal blog posts, I’ve also started a no-commentary playthrough of the first Banner Saga Game.  This first part encompasses the first two chapters, future playthroughs will be one chapter at a time.

The Banner Saga is a Trilogy of Strategy RPG’s with a strong emphasis on mature storytelling and difficult decisions.  Gameplay is split between a tactical chess-like battle system and an adventure game-esque caravan simulator, reminiscent of the Oregan Trail.

The first Banner Saga game (aptly titled “The Banner Saga”) is a Low-Fantasy Nordic epic following two bands of refugees as they flee from a mysterious foe in a world were the sun itself has stopped in the sky only days ago.  Released in 2014, it received universal acclaim for its gorgeous art style (inspired by Eyvind Earle, the artist who created Disney’s Sleeping Beauty) and evocative score by Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory.  It went on to spawn an entire trilogy of games, where every choice you make has lasting consequences that carry into the next entry.

Interested?  I hope so.  Below I’ve embedded the first part of my playthrough, on YouTube.  It clocks in around 1:42 hours, further entries will be shorter.  It’s available to watch up to 1080p60, though is available at lower resolutions if that’s all your device can output.  If you enjoy the first two chapters please continue to watch my playthrough (new parts released every few days) and support the developers at Stoic Studios by purchasing their games and soundtracks.  The Banner Saga Trilogy is available on all major platforms (including smartphones) and is rated T for Teen.
