"I game therefore I am. And I bloody love it."
Nuttylamb, also referred to as Nutty, is a British Let's Player on Youtube that has been posting videos since the beginning of 2012.
She is a member of an online game community called Dogs of War Gaming or DoWG, which she is very fond of. Her first uploads were solely gameplay videos of Battlefield 3, a game she enjoys tremendously and has become quite good at. Let's Plays were soon added to her repertoire and have now become the main focus of her channel, although she still uploads Battlefield 3 videos from time to time.
Personality - Let's Play Style
Nuttylamb often tends towards the excitable, most notably seen in her Tomb Raider: Anniversary playthrough, though she has her deadpan moments as well. She's very passionate about gaming and though she's competitive, she does not actually mind losing. She also enjoys restricting her gameplay in some way, forcing her to play unconventionally.
Nuttylamb primarily does live commentaries, having only posted two or three videos with post commentary so far. This is because she feels she would not have enough subject matter to talk for an entire video. As such, her commentaries are not really of the informative genre, though she does occasionally provide interesting trivia. Through her sometimes unconventional style of play, Nuttylamb can land herself in some pretty amusing situations.
She's very prone to getting lost in Open World games. Also easily distracted by dinosaurs of any kind.
Limbo - (Completed)
"A blind play through of the game Limbo, complete with live commentary which may include occasional expletives and or screeching."
In her first Let's Play, Nuttylamb is briefly beguiled by the game's soothing aesthetics and unique art style, before she's faced with a bigger challenge than she had expected: a giant spider. After numerous tries, she manages to scare the thing away, terrified to her core herself, and proceeds through the game. After a few more encounters, the spider is finally eradicated, making for a profound and victorious moment. Continuing on her journey, she manages to fall for (nearly) every trap laid out for her, until she finally reaches the ending. Souls were healed. Although she's not much wiser than she was at the beginning.
Tomb Raider: Underworld - (Completed)
"A blind play through of Tomb Raider: Underworld. May contain expletives and questionable camera angles."
In her second Let's Play, Nuttylamb takes on the role of the infamous Lara Croft, globetrotter extraordinaire and a challenge to control. Starting off in the mediterranean sea, she solves boob-puzzles at a brisk pace, before coming face to face with a giant Kraken. A few platforming sequences later, Nuttylamb stumbles upon the first piece of the game's admittedly convoluted storyline, one of Thor's gauntlets. Or, as she refers to it, a sherrif badge. It's soon taken from her though, and Nutty sinks a boat while attempting to get it back.
Her next destination is Thailand, where she frequently engages in one of her favourite pastimes, teabagging. Her journey turns out to be largely fruitless however, and she is soon sent back to Lara's still-intact-mansion. Getting her hands on the second sherrif badge, Nutty quickly ventures out, gets the mansion blown up and loses a dear friend. In Mexico, she has another memorable encounter with some giant spiders, solves some more puzzles and eventually reaches Thor's belt. With Thor's hammer practically in her hands, Nutty goes to Greenland, where she speedruns through a maze when she has a motorcycle, swings on some hammers and then finally acquires the real hammer. Wrecking another ship (and having tons of fun doing it), Nuttylamb is swiftly approaching the ending. In the arctic sea, Nutty climbs her way to victory in the most complicated puzzle room ever seen and finally makes it back in one piece. Although the plot was again largely lost on her, the game renewed her love for the franchise.
Batman: Arkham City - (Completed)
"This is a blind play through of Batman: Arkham City which may contain expletives, crazy acrobatics and epicness. I cannot be held responsible for the awesomeness this game may bestow upon your face."
On a vacation, away from her Xbox 360, Nutty decides to briefly put her Deus Ex playthrough on hiatus, and instead starts this one. Chronologically, it's her fourth Let's Play, but since it was finished before Deus Ex, it's listed as the third. In this one, she assumes the identity of the fabulous Batman. After a brief stint as Catwoman, her journey as the caped crimefighter begins, with her first mission rescuing Catwoman's voluptuous bottom. Then, following a trail of clues, Nuttylamb eventually manages to break through the Joker's defenses and finds him dead. No genre-savvy player would fall for it, but sadly, Batman does, setting up the game's plot. As Batman is sent off to the land of the unconscious, courtesy of Harley Quinn, Nutty is back in the body of Catwoman, spectacularly owning prison mates before getting (literally) tied up in some trouble with Poison Ivy.
Switching back to Batman, Nuttylamb is forced on a wild-goose chase, trying to find a cure for Batman and the Joker. Progress is slowed as Nutty's terrible sense of direction becomes apparent for the first time. Finally finding her way, she proceeds to defeat multiple major enemies, occasionally getting scared by abnormally large sharks along the way. With Batman's condition worsening, the appearance of his other not-quite-girlfriend provides a solution and she is soon on her way to construct a final cure. Double-crossed by Freeze, who proves to be a very scary opponent, Nutty is forced to beat his face up a bit, before finding out the cure has been stolen. Back at the Joker's headquarters, she gets blindsided and nearly killed. In Catwoman's penultimate episode, ownage is par for the course, and Batman is saved. Beating and punching and sneaking her way to the ending as quickly as possible, since she's got little time left to complete the playthrough, Nutty's actually left speechless once things finally come together. After the final boss, Nutty watches through the credits, satisfied that the game is done... when a final Catwoman mission takes her by surprise. And thugs were owned one last time.
