Is Subnautica Worth The Hype?

December 25, 2016

“Approaching crush depth, please return to the surface ASAP” I hear my pda tell me. Despite its rather pertinent warning (Dying by being crushed is NOT a fate I am particuarly fond of), I am so close to my objective I have no intention of doing so. To prevent the destruction of my seamoth (a mini-submersible), I exit the submarine and immediately begin surveying the area. From the events of…

April 13, 2016

After a years wait, Squad is at last delivering on their promise of a KSP build using the Unity V engine. As part of that upgrade, Squad had to redesign their User Interface (UI) and rebuild many of the critical systems (such as the physics engine PhysX) from scratch. Thanks to all their time and hard work, the KSP 1.1 update will come with many changes for the better. Besides…

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth is Wonderful

December 9, 2015

Hello fair readers!  Sometimes life gives me an awesome gift.  Then, life kicks me in the face with shoes covered in the cold virus and runs away cackling.  Life is kind of a jerk.  However, thanks to said illness, I played an obscene amount of my favorite game, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, and its newest expansion, Afterbirth. If you’ve played the first game, you know just how fun and…

Sword Coast Legends: Not My Bag of Dice

December 9, 2015

Hello again, fair readers!  A couple of years ago, I tried my hand at tabletop gaming for the first time.  Owen has a friend who is passionate about playing RPGs and had a game going with a couple of coworkers.  I was eventually sucked in despite my lack of experience.  Instead of paper and pencil, the sessions were run with laptops on a LAN, and had its perks and drawbacks. …

Meeting people like Adam reminds me why most of us get into streaming in the first place. First and foremost, we do it because it is fun. We do it because we have a passion for videogames. We do it because the people that stop by to watch find a little bit of comfort and familiarity in their day. Before you know it, we are streaming consistently and those regulars…

Giana Sisters: Dream Runners Review

November 18, 2015

3…2…1! The race begins! I frantically try to find the controls, searching for the way to move forward while the others leave me in the dust. I find the controls to be awkward for me at first, having the movement keys be arrow keys instead of WASD. They (meaning easy AI players, as I could not find any real people online) left me so far behind that I died from…

Hello, fair readers!  Sorry for the radio silence lately, but I have had a busy, busy top half of November.  Between birthdays, anniversaries, my birthday, my anniversary, and a deluge of new games and gaming toys, it has been a delectable mess.  I have so much to tell you all, but let’s start first with some show-and-tell. Valve, a company held near and dear to my heart, dove face first…

November 9, 2015

Holy crap. That’s the words that are left coming out of my mouth after finishing this game, but I truly mean that in the best way possible. When I think of SOMA after playing I am constantly reminded why Fractional Games is so well known for their talent of making amazing horror games. While this game does not exactly focus too much on scares, just the ideas and concepts put…

Behind the Streams – Trust the Cake

November 8, 2015

I am a firm believer in the phrase “Everyone has a story to tell.” Everyone has gone through things that have changed them. These past experiences add to a person’s own uniqueness. I made ‘Behind the Streams’ because I want to highlight these stories and show the gaming world that no two streamers are alike. They all have their own styles, their own backstories, and their own motivations for streaming….
