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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
