I could list my PC's specs, but I won't. It's good enough to run these games well, so let's leave it at that.

Aliens: Colonial Marines
Video length: See times on playlists
Game region:
Difficulty level: 2 out of 5

Playthrough of the campaign on the solider difficulty setting. I don't really think I need to say anything about the quality of this game as so many others have talked about it. But in terms of difficulty, this is a fairly easy game, and for the most part the human enemies are actually more dangerous than the aliens.

I've also done a playthrough of the DLC campaign, which is called Stasis Interrupted. This is a shorter campaign that features several different playable characters, and is set before the main campaign.

BlazBlue Calamity Trigger

Difficulty level: 1 out of 5

Playthrough with Ragna. I didn't try to get the extra boss simply because if you do, you don't get to see your character's ending after you win or lose. This is also the Steam version -the game was originally released for the Games for Windows service, but then re-released on Steam.





Dead or Alive 5 Last Round
Video length: 12:06
Game region:
Difficulty level: 2 out of 5

Playthrough of arcade mode on normal with Kasumi. The arcade mode for this doesn't actually feature a cheap boss to fight at the end, making it the easiest DoA game to get through on one credit.





Divekick Addition Edition +
Video length: 18:18
Game region:
Difficulty level: 4 out of 5

Playthrough with Johnny Gat. Johnny is a guest character from the Saints Row series, ideally you need to have played Saints Row IV to get some of the references for his appearance in this game. For those who've never heard of it, this is a two button fighting game, with the aim being to land a divekick on your opponent. One hit is all it takes to win a round, but it can be a lot tougher than it sounds! Characters have special abilities to spice things up, and the game's final boss is kind of ridiculous since he can teleport around and has a counter move.





Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition
Video length: 32:33
Game region:
Difficulty level: 3 out of 5

Playthrough of the classic battles mode with Scorpion. This game has the usual special moves, but each character also has a unique ability, and levels also have interactive scenery that you can use to hurt your opponent. The end boss is the only real challenge of this, as it's a more powerful Superman who can do a lot of damage to you. Starting off a combo as soon as he gets up from being knocked down can work surprisingly well against him.





The King of Fighters '97 Global Match
Video length: 34:10
Game region:
Difficulty level: 3 out of 5

Playthrough with the Ikari team. This version's main feature is it has online play, and it also has a few extras such as a gallery mode. As for the game, it gets more difficult as you progress through the standard teams, but then the difficult can really get cranked up once you get to the bosses, which there are several of.

However the Ikari team have it a bit easier. You can beat Orochi Iori fairly easily if you spam Ralf's Ralf kick a lot. The Orochi team can be beaten by abusing Clark and Ralf's command grabs, although you have to time them well. With Orochi you just need to be patient, I managed to take him out with just Leona.





Left 4 Dead

Game region:
Difficulty level: 3 out of 5

Playthrough with Zoey of every campaign in the game, including the two DLC ones and a quick playthrough of survival mode's Last Stand map. The PC version has two big advantages over the Xbox 360: 1) it runs at 60fps and 2) the online still works.

Because of this I played with random people online rather than play through the game with bots as I did with the Xbox 360 version. For the most part the people playing with me were fine.





Left 4 Dead 2
Video length: See times on playlist
Game region:
Difficulty level: 3 out of 5

Playthrough with Nick of every campaign in the game, including the 2 DLC ones. Again, since the online for the PC version still works, I played with random people for these videos.





Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite
Video length: 24:13
Game region:
Difficulty level: 3 out of 5

Playthrough with Thanos and Haggar. The normal teams in this are all really easy to beat, the only difficult part is the final boss, which isn't exactly hard, it just goes on for far too long.





Mortal Kombat II
Video length: 18:21
Game region:
Difficulty level: 4 out of 5

Playthrough with Jax, using the version of the game included on the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection. This game is notorious for being too difficult, however you can manipulate the CPU into doing things that can work to your advantage. I'd like to thanks TerryxMasters for finding this strategy with Jax -visit his channel here -which involves using Jax's air throw a lot.

Even with this tactic the game can still be very tough to beat. You can use it on most opponents, but it won't work on Kintaro -to beat him you need to use jump kicks a lot, along with a few projectiles. Shao Kahn is very easy to beat, however.





Mortal Kombat X
Video length: 32:32
Game region:
Difficulty level: 4 out of 5

Playthrough with Scorpion. This is a playthrough of the game before it was updated to the XL version, so it doesn't run very well (this version of the game is the worst one). In terms of difficulty, I think this is, for the most part, the easiest Mortal Kombat game I've ever played -the only part I have trouble with is the game's final boss, Corrupted Shinnok. It's a one round fight but the boss is very cheap, and all of this attacks do a lot of damage. I got lucky beating him in this playthrough.





Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition
Video length: 56:22
Game region:
Difficulty level: 3 out of 5

Playthrough with Sub-Zero and Cyber Sub-Zero in the tag ladder's normal difficulty. I get some kind of finishing move on every fight other than the last one. The PC version is the "Komplete Edition" which gives you the extra characters, costumes and fatalities for free. (Originally, for the 360 and PS3 versions, you had to pay for them.)

This video goes on for way too long. Sorry about that. Whilst I didn't have to continue, I did lose more rounds than I would have liked, which just meant the playthrough took longer.





OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast
Video length: See below
Game region:
Difficulty level: 2 out of 5

This is a playthrough of the two different circuits in the game: the Special Tours course, and then the course featured in the original version of OutRun 2. I would say that the Special Tours courses are easier than the OutRun 2 courses.


Special Tours playthrough (7:48)
OutRun 2 playthrough (7:55)



Street Fighter II
Video length: 21:26
Game region:
Difficulty level: 2 out of 5

Playthrough with Dhalsim. The original PC version of Street Fighter II was published by U.S. Gold in 1993. And what a glorious mess it is. Whilst the graphics look accurate in stills, in motion everything is extremely choppy and special moves are basically impossible to do.

The good news at least is that in this version Dhalsim is the best character. His slide covers the entire screen, so most of the time just spamming that is enough to win. Failing that, his stretchy limbs are really useful against the CPU here as you can just do the same kick over and over and they'll keep getting hit by it.

Special mention has to go to the music -during a fight only two pieces of music are used, both of which were the worst possible choices -the character select theme and the intro theme. Let me give you an advanced warning: turn your speaker volume down/off.





Street Fighter IV
Video length: 28:43
Game region:
Difficulty level: 2 out of 5

The Street Fighter IV games are usually quite easy to play through thanks to the focus attack. The CPU often don't seem like they know how to deal with these, and will just try to block them, disregarding the fact that, you know...they're unblockable. So after you hit your opponent with one you can follow it up with the attack of your choice. Anyway, this is a playthrough with Ken. I fight Gouken for the secret boss battle at the end.





Street Fighter X Tekken
Video length: 38:40
Game region:
Difficulty level: 2 out of 5

Playthrough with Akuma and Ogre, who are the boss characters in the game. This game is probably even easier than any of the versions of Street Fighter IV, the tag combos are really easy to do and you can do them frequently. The final boss is a little more difficult I guess but is still not that tough.





Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition
Video length: 31:34
Game region:
Difficulty level: 2 out of 5

Playthrough with T. Hawk, fighting Evil Ryu in the secret boss fight. The original Super Street Fighter IV was never released for the PC, but the Arcade Edition update was. It's still easy to get through the game just by using the focus attack, which works great for T. Hawk since you can follow it up with one of his throw moves, which do big damage.





Ultra Street Fighter IV
Video length: 31:06
Game region:
Difficulty level: 2 out of 5

The presumably final version of Street Fighter IV, Ultra Street Fighter IV brings a bunch of Street Fighter X Tekken content with it and not much else. One of the characters added is Poison. I was going to try and beat the game with Elena but I didn't like her move set, so Poison it is.

One of the game's new features is the ultra combo double, which lets you use either of your character's ultra combos during a fight. The trade-off is that the damage these moves do is a lot lower than usual. I decided to use it anyway, since that way I can show off both moves in the playthrough.

I also fight Oni for the secret boss fight.





Virtua Fighter 2 Genesis
Video length: 9:55
Game region:
Difficulty level: 2 out of 5

Playthrough with Kage, using the version of the game available on Steam. The 16-bit version of Virtua Fighter 2 has CPU opponents who can be annoying at times, although overall it isn't as anywhere near as bad as the arcade version. Using Kage you can get through the game just be using two different combos: punch, punch, kick or punch, punch, punch, kick.

The character speech in the Steam version gets worse and worse as the game goes on, which is a problem most Genesis games put on Steam have.
