Thoughts on Phasmophobia

Thoughts on Phasmophobia

In my college days, I used to be super into watching shows about people hunting ghosts. Ghost Hunters and its various spinoffs, Ghost Adventures, Paranormal State… you name it, I probably watched it. I’m not really sure why I was so into them, honestly. Maybe I was intrigued by the thought of spirits lingering in places long after their physical form was gone or maybe it just had something to do with me leaning a little more witchy than some…

My Time in New World’s Open Beta

My Time in New World’s Open Beta

In the corners of the internet that I’ve been lurking in, it’s been a while since I’ve seen people hyped for a new MMO. So when Amazon Games’ New World announced an open beta event for this past weekend, I saw a good number of people excited about it. I, on the other hand, was a bit more skeptical. I will admit that a lot of my own skepticism about the game is tied to the company itself. When I think…

Have You Ever: Gaming Edition

Have You Ever: Gaming Edition

When it came time for me to attempt to figure out a blog post for today, I legitimately came up empty. I have an assortment of ideas for future posts down the line, mind, but being that today is a weekend, I wanted to try to keep things as casual as possible. And then I remembered Chestnut from Gamer Girl Confessions posted this a couple of weeks ago. Playing a game of sorts felt like the perfect thing to post…

Would You Rather: Gaming Edition

Would You Rather: Gaming Edition

We’ve officially hit a point in my very first Blaugust where I find myself struggling more and more for blog post ideas a bit more than I might usually. Because the idea of Blaugust is to, you know, write a blog post daily, there’s less of an opportunity to really take a break and give your brain a bit to recharge before diving back into it. Fortunately, though, the Blaugust community is a bit of a godsend in moments like…

The Book of Travels: A Tiny Multiplayer Online Game?

The Book of Travels: A Tiny Multiplayer Online Game?

Book of Travels is a game that has been on my radar ever since I first heard about the Kickstarter that launched in October 2019. Created by Might and Delight (creators of Shelter and Meadow), Book of Travels is a tiny multiplayer online RPG with roleplay elements built into it from character creation and a unique way of communicating with other players. And I would be lying if I tried to convince you all that I wasn’t excited about this…

Review: Scarlet Hollow

Review: Scarlet Hollow

It was Halloween of 2020 when I first heard about a game called Scarlet Hollow. At the time, it was still in the Kickstarter phase, but the first chapter had been released for free on Steam for everyone to play and experience which I appreciated. This way, people could decide for themselves if they wanted to back the project or not. I made the decision to play the first chapter myself, and I was met with what was quite possibly…

My History as a Healer in MMOs

My History as a Healer in MMOs

Most people who have watched me stream long enough or who may know me from MMORPGs such as Final Fantasy XIV will know that I am a healer. I am, perhaps, one of the saltier healers in existence, especially when people always move out of range right as my cast bar is about to finish so I can actually heal them or they move out of line of sight (very important for healers), but I am a healer nonetheless. That…

How I Learned to Love Cozy Games

How I Learned to Love Cozy Games

If you had asked me before December of 2019 if I would ever find any joy in games like Stardew Valley or Animal Crossing, I probably would have told you, “No.” And I likely would have said it in a tone that would have implied you were ridiculous for asking. Prior to the release of games like these, I was playing World of Warcraft, and there were a few dailies in Mists of Pandaria that involved tending to a farm….

The Games That Shaped Me

The Games That Shaped Me

For those of us who play video games, we all have genres or kinds of games that we like. Console, PC, handheld… doesn’t matter. These are the games that have never left us for one reason or the other. The games that have become our favorites over time. Games that we just keep coming back to because we love them or there’s a nostalgia factor that accompanies them. However, a question keeps getting passed around various gaming spaces over the…
