An RPG Project Draft

An RPG Project Draft

I’ve been craving getting into a new project lately since my break. Mostly, I’ve wanted to come up with something that I would ideally enjoy doing even if no one were to watch it — ideally, I would be okay just doing it for the sake of it.

I thought about reviving BetterDota, but after a couple streams I found I wasn’t enjoying Dota at the level I’d need to in order to focus on grinding out MMR. Instead, I turned to what I like playing when I don’t really have any other obligations: RPGs.

Artour, a stream, and a journey into madness

Artour, a stream, and a journey into madness

So, I want you to picture something for a second.

Imagine you’ve been a fan of League of Legends for the past two years. You’re used to a specific stream experience: webcam, mic, music and whatever else. You start dabbling a little more in Dota 2 and you decide that maybe it’s time to see what some of these pros are doing; you go to the Twitch.tv directory for the game and click into the most popular at the stream at the time.

You meet Artour, and your descent begins.

The Warcraft cycle: playing an MMO as an adult

The Warcraft cycle: playing an MMO as an adult

I have this problem, and it began with World of Warcraft. Burning out on it killed my ability to be immersed in a game full time, or at least long sessions.

Running in the 90’s: delving into Absolute Drift

Sometimes you can’t help but commit a cardinal sin in gaming: you let your first impression be your only one. I picked up Absolute Drift the other week after lusting after it for a little bit, and actually refunded it after finding it “too hard.”

Getting around to The Witcher 3

Getting around to The Witcher 3

I’d been saving playing CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt until I’d sufficiently upgraded, mostly because it felt unsatisfying at medium graphics settings and a choppy framerate. It was definitely worth the wait: seeing the game “as it was meant to be played” as a locked 60 frames-per-second is actually one of the highlights of my recent gaming career.
