Layers of Fear: A Terrifying Experience

Layers of Fear: A Terrifying Experience

This may not come as much of a surprise to you, dear readers, but I’m something of a scaredy-cat. For me to willingly attempt to complete a horror game, let alone stream it for an audience to enjoy, is something of a rarity, so much so that I only ever break out the horror games for special occasions. Like raising funds for charity and including my playing them as donation incentives. This is basically why I’m going to be playing…

For anyone who may not know, I am a huge nerd. The majority of my life has been spent immersed in various fandom cultures to some extent or the other.

A Reintroduction For 2022

A Reintroduction For 2022

As I write this, we’re beginning our second week of 2022, and it still doesn’t quite feel real to me. The past two years have just sort of blurred together to the point where I almost doubt that they’ve even happened, although they absolutely have. It doesn’t help that things have been fairly chaotic for everyone lately, either, namely due to a certain, ah, “panorama,” shall we say. For my part, I’ve been a bit all over the place. Although…

A Horror Game Palooza for 2022

A Horror Game Palooza for 2022

Another year is coming to a close, and as a new year dawns, new things rise. Earlier this month, my stream team (Nest Fam) joined forces with Ikigai (another stream team) to raise money for the Trans Women of Color Collective, and I brought back the Wheel of Horror as incentives for the campaign. Well, thanks to some surprising contributions, we’re now committed to playing every single horror game that was on that wheel! I don’t think it’s an exaggeration…

NaNoWriMo 2021 Final Report

NaNoWriMo 2021 Final Report

NaNoWriMo ends today, and I’m sure at least some of you are wondering how I did. Was I successful? Did I write 50,000 words in a month? Unfortunately, no. No, I did not. Some might consider that a failure. For a little while, I certainly did. However, a major goal I had with NaNoWriMo 2021 was just to write something again. Hitting that 50,000-word goal would have been nice, but that wasn’t the whole point of this exercise. The point…

NaNoWriMo and Why I’m Doing It

NaNoWriMo and Why I’m Doing It

Some of you may have noticed that it has been fairly quiet over here on this blog over the past couple of weeks. This is mainly because I made the perhaps questionable decision to participate in Nation Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, this year after not participating in it for eight years. To be honest, it’s a decision that I’m still questioning even now. At one point in my life, I wanted to be a writer. I devoured a lot…

Exploring Book of Travels

Exploring Book of Travels

If you’ve been hanging around here on the blog since August, you know just how excited I’ve been for the tiny multiplayer online RPG Book of Travels. It finally came into Early Access on October 11, and, as I’m sure you can imagine, I was just as excited the day it launched onto Steam. We’ve had Book of Travels for almost two weeks now, and I thought this would be a good time to record my thoughts on the game…

3 Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Playing Elder Scrolls Online

Would You Play Your Favorite MMO Without Its IP?

Would You Play Your Favorite MMO Without Its IP?

About a week ago, Massively OP posed a question to their staff and readers inspired by a post they saw on Reddit. The question was a simple one, one you can probably guess if you looked at the title of this post at all, but it’s an interesting question nonetheless: Would you play your favorite MMO without its IP attached to it? While I missed the initial post when Massively OP made it, it became a topic of some discussion…
