I noticed there will be a live stream today, but what the hell is Jurassic Lark?

I am new here, so sorry if it is common knowledge. I searched the forum for related posts, and didn't see any.

Patrick is a big Jurassic Park fan and (I forgot how) he got hold of a ton of JP games. They're planning on playing through all of them, it's been a while coming, since the last Big Live Live Show but I guess this is going to be the start of it. Also welcome!

Chris Tilton, a friend of the crew, bought Patrick every Jurassic Park game ever made (or just about) for his birthday last year. So, him and Ryan are going to play them.

I believe those all came from various people sending in random games.

The only Jurassic Park game I ever owned was the first SNES game. That was just weird. And hard. So goddamn hard.

Probably some kind of prehistoric bird. Patrick's been nursing a mysterious ancient egg in his hair for the past few months. It's probably going to hatch soon.

I remember that. Those weird ass first person sections and whatnot. It was interesting but I liked the Genesis version way better. You got to be a freakin Raptor.

Yeah that one Jurassic Park game during the Big live show live(?) was kind of hilarious.

Patrick and Ryan are going to play likely bad Jurassic Park games. Should be great!

Ryan and Patrick are going to play nearly every Jurassic Park game. I doubt this will become an endurance run, probably one game per episode.

Head's up. Live stuff is for premium members only so you wont be able to watch it.

For some reason I thought the games were a wedding present to him. Either way bring on some Operation Genesis! "God Bless You!"

I can't wait till they get to that RTS one on the PC. That was my very first RTS game.

@CaptainThunderpants: Can I just not watch it live? Will I be able to watch it once it is uploaded to the site?

@Aviont: Let me know if someone does and it isn't made super obvious and I will do the same for you if you find it! I won't get back until about 2 hours in and that is no good!

Usually, only live Flight Club videos and whatnot are premium only. TNTs and other live streams are usually accessible to everyone.

Just head over to giantbomb.com/chat 10 minutes after it's scheduled. I don't think they've ever been on time.

It doesn't say premium so I'd assume it will be available to non-subscribers right?

This might be kind of fantastic.

This ought to be great, every bad JP game played back to back and perhaps maybe a diamond in the rough can be discovered by this Triceratops size shit pile.

Hopefully it involves Jurrasic LARP and we see Patrick dressed in a dino suit (tail and all) and Ryan as Dr. Alan Grant.

Yeah I can't wait for this. I had the Jurassic Park game for the SNES with the first person sections. My favorite thing to do was to blast the raptors in the visitor center with the gas. But it was mad scary because I had never played many games in first person and when those raptors woke up, watch the fuck out. Also, it was funny seeing myself get trampled by a triceratops.

I also had the Jurassic Park game for the Game Boy and was very similar to the SNES one with the top down view going on.

Then there was the PlayStation game for the Lost World, didn't play it but it was my main reason for wanting a Playstation, the graphics looked incredible to me at the time.

Then there was Trespasser which I hope they play, probably won't get to it this time around. But I remember being excited for it but my computer just could not play that mess. It was cool with the physics and think a game with exploration like that, in the vein of skyrim, but to survive the trek through the island would be cool. That said, why don't they make a Skyrim expansion or Elder Scrolls game where you go to a part of the world that has dinosaurs as the fauna and that's the main difference.

So, what is going on in the stream? Any word on the stream being archived for non-subscribers?

I remember playing Jurassic Park on the Playstation 1. I would just use cheat codes and be a velociraptor and just kill people all the time. I knew I should have upgraded the other day to the premium membership.

...I miss Sazh. Everyone seemed to like XIII-2 more than the first but me? Snow, Fang, Sazh, those guys were way more fun to watch than Serah and Noel.
