    shadyparadox got a reaction from BlockMaster in Starting a Let's Play series of SQ4, but before I do...   
    Greetings, people of the Forum. I'm essentially new to the place, even though I technically registered like two and half years ago.
    Anyway, I'm creating a Let's Play video series of Space Quest IV (the 1.2 version), but I'm not here just to advertise it because I haven't posted anything yet. Actually, I'm starting this thread as kind of an open-ended question to the SQ community.
    To set it up, I'll first say that my style is a bit unusual. Instead of whipping through a bunch of games spontaneously, I pick a very select few I particularly enjoy and create fairly comprehensive presentations of everything I know about them, while still maintaining some natural flow and not bogging down. This requires scripting the gameplay and editing much of the commentary. I don't make many videos, but when I do I want to get them right.
    The trickiest part about scripting these out is making sure to cover the more obscure facets of the game (bugs, funniest lines, easter eggs, unused resources, pop culture references, background story almost nobody understands, etc.). So one approach I'm taking this is to simply ask all you SQ knowledgeables: Do you have anything off the top of your head in any of the above categories (including "etc.") that you think would be fun to show off in a video series?
    I'm already well on my way doing my own research (pixel hunting the game, reading the wiki, perusing the forum), so I know much of the above stuff already, and I'm not asking anyone to do my homework for me. And obviously I'm not going to be able to fit everything no matter how hard I try. But if there's anything you personally feel is a cool and unusual can't-miss item, then I'd hate to, well, miss it.
    Sorry to be a bit general in my request, likely resulting in rehashing of previous threads, but with this category it's hard to know what I'm looking for until I find it. I've already learned about "bluefrog" and the beta keycard just from rummaging around in a few old threads, so I know you guys are the right ones to ask. I could go through every thread instead of posting this, but I don't think that's the most efficient way to go about it (unless you have a comprehensive database of all your discoveries somewhere...?).
    Thanks in advance for your ideas, I'm sure you have some good ones.
