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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
