The Friday streams return, and this time Xavier is playing a game that TK purchased on a sort of whim. The Signature Edition of Spirit of the North. Neither of them really know what this game is about, and so fancied doing an unboxing of the rather nice looking special edition box. Today’s stream, however, is all about the gameplay. What will happen as Xavier takes control, and does whatever the game wants him to do? Tune in and see.

Sonic hits the big 3 0 in 2021, so what better way than to have a year long celebration for the blue blur? Well, there are probably much better ways, but that’s not the TigerTails Gaming way, is it? If all goes to plan, there shall be no less than 12 Sonic Year videos (averaging one a month is the target), and this one is the first…
Join Xavier and Hedgie, as they attempt to complete Act 1 of Green Hill Zone from the Christian Whitehead version of Sonic 1 in less than 30 seconds. TK has already set a time, and the challenge is to beat him if they can – with only 10 attempts in which to do so! Will they beat the time, or will they even beat 30 seconds? Game played on an Android emulator, using a PS4 controller.

Join Xavier (with TK off camera) with a highlights reel from a 3 hour playthrough as he takes on the latest Point & Click adventure, Brok the Investigator – Prologue. Made by CowCat Games, the game tells the story of Brok, an alligator who’s also a private investigator (plus handyman). Xavier takes control of the titular character as he tries to solve the case of a missing gun. This is the first chapter of the game, available to download now for free on Steam and Good Old Games (links below).
The first “Classic Adventure” mixed with Beat’em Up and RPG, inspired by cartoons from the 80’s/early 90’s. What kind of detective will you be?

To celebrate 25 years since the release of the original PlayStation in the UK, TigerTails Gaming are making the month of September a celebration of all things PS1.
In this video, TK delves into the madness that is Um Jammer Lammy, the semi-sequel to Parappa the Rapper. A glorious rhythm action game that is as fantastic as it is absolutely crazy. When you have a game about a socially anxious lamb who plays guitar, you know you’re in for a time that was only available on PlayStation. This video will take a look at the story, the game play, and the madness that is Um Jammer Lammy.
Hedgie and Xavier endure what is possibly the hardest challenge on the original PlayStation: Beating the opening to Driver and completing the car park mission. This was originally going to be a stream back in 2018, but Internet issues forced them to record it instead. At first is was going to bed edited down but instead it ended up being released as is so everyone can witness Hedgie’s evolution from total noob to someone who has half a clue on how to control the car. Will he beat the game before giving up, throwing the controller through the screen, and burning down an orphanage? Watch on and find out.
This was originally streamed on 11/09/2020, however the stream died so this is most of what happened up to that point. It was supposed to be a link game battle, but as the consoles refused to connect Hedgie and Xavier battled via Split Screen instead. There was also a twist – the whole game was controlled using AirPad controllers. Early motion control gaming, which really helps level out the handicap as Xavier is usually better at Wipeout than Hedgie is. This was what happened during the stream before it died.

PlayStation Month continues as Xavier does battle against Syphon Filter for the first time since he was a young ‘un. Looking to complete the game in 2 sessions, this will be Part 1 of a 2 part series. Unless he beats the game today, in which case it won’t be. So join him and watch a game from 1999 kick his arse again.
In this video, TK takes on an under-rated game released by Psygnosis which features an anthropomorphic fox as the lead character, always a good sign. This is TK’s first actual review for the channel so why he chose a game from his youthful days about a game that most people haven’t heard of it anyone’s guess. The review includes footage from both the PAL and the NTSC-U version of the game, captured from real hardware, a PlayStation Classic, and the ePSXe PlayStation emulator.
It’s Part 2 of Xavier trying to complete Spider-Man on the PS1… You know this means we get to use this again: Spider-Man, Spider-Man, Xavier plays it as well as he can. Throw a web, fight a guy, swing around, through the sky. Lookout, here comes the Spider-Man!
Spider-Man, Spider-Man, Xavier plays it as well as he can. Throw a web, fight a guy, swing around, through the sky. Lookout, here comes the Spider-Man! PlayStation Month continues with Xavier taking on the PS1 offering to the Spider-Man franchise and seeing what it has to offer. Considering the game uses the same engine as Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, there’s high hopes that this game won’t suck. Then again, it’s an Activision game, so anything’s possible.
