Little Nightmares – A Wonderfully Nightmarish Experience

Little Nightmares – A Wonderfully Nightmarish Experience

Ordinarily, I wouldn’t consider a game of hide and seek to be particularly terrifying. After all, it’s a pretty simple game pretty much everyone played as children that normally has no consequences whatsoever. But apparently, that all goes out the window when I’m playing a game as a little child hiding under a bed as long arms snake through an open door to try to grab me. Because I kid you all not, I spent a lot of that experience…

Not Quite Up to Expectations – A Call of Cthulhu Review

Not Quite Up to Expectations – A Call of Cthulhu Review

If you’ve been a follower of mine for a while, you may recall that I’m a fan of the cosmic horror genre. The very first game that started my streaming career, such as it is, was The Secret World (now Secret World Legends): a game that maintains that every urban myth and legend is true, all while mixing in a lot of cosmic horror. As a result, any time I’m presented with a game that allows me to go back…

Back At It Again in Guild Wars 2

Back At It Again in Guild Wars 2

Of all the MMOs I could be exploring right now, I didn’t expect my current focus to be on Guild Wars 2. In fact, I honestly didn’t expect to touch it ever again. During last year’s Blaugust, I wrote an entire post about my struggles just attempting to play this MMO. There were things about it I genuinely liked, but more about it that I wasn’t a huge fan of. All of that together made me want to give up…

Sci-Fi Horror at its Best – A Dead Space Review

Sci-Fi Horror at its Best – A Dead Space Review

When it comes to horror games, I am a notorious scaredy-cat. You may look at this statement and question why exactly I’m streaming eight horror games this year given that, but I actually did this to myself. In December 2021, my stream team and I were doing some fundraising, and while I had set up eight horror games on a list of potential games to play when my campaign hit certain donation milestones, I certainly didn’t anticipate hitting all of…

A Beginner’s Guide to Loose Leaf Tea

A Beginner’s Guide to Loose Leaf Tea

Some people are in love with coffee, but as for myself, I’m in love with tea. I will admit that my preference began for slightly petty reasons. Everyone I knew in my family was partial to coffee and I wanted to be contrary. Later in life, however, I learned that while I enjoyed the smell of coffee, I wasn’t really a fan of the taste. I’m sorry to any coffee drinkers who may watch my content or read my blog…

A PvE Player’s Guide to Elder Scrolls Online’s Alliance War

A PvE Player’s Guide to Elder Scrolls Online’s Alliance War

If there’s one thing that always intimidates me about player vs player (PvP) game modes in an MMORPG, it’s generally the other players. Now, I usually enjoy the challenge of healing in a combat zone while there’s a very clear target on my back and flashing neon arrows pointing straight at me, and whenever death occurs, I tend to accept my fate because I know I’m usually the primary target. However, due to some horrific experiences in PvP from people…

Don’t Get Too Comfortable! A DARQ Review

Don’t Get Too Comfortable! A DARQ Review

After wrapping up Layers of Fear a couple of weeks ago, I was looking forward to something a bit less emotionally heavy. While I did enjoy it, the game does deal with some fairly heavy themes, and depending on a few of the choices you can make while playing, it can absolutely take a toll on your mind. So, yes, I was absolutely looking forward to playing DARQ after that. Although it is very much a psychological game, the spookiness…

The Legacy of the Bretons

The Legacy of the Bretons

Fans of The Elder Scrolls Online took to Bethesda’s Twitch account en masse on January 27 as the company unveiled the newest expansion for the game, High Isle, and the newest year-long storyline in the game’s vast archive of incredible stories: The Legacy of the Bretons. This storyline will encompass every content release the company gives us in 2022, beginning with the Ascending Tide DLC in March 2022, and carrying into the launch of High Isle in June. To say…

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…
