Upcoming Videos / Streams

Hey everybody, quick update on the video side. I have been delayed in getting started by:-

  1. A huge PC crash that fried many of my components, leading me to MacGuyver my PC. It is up and running and fairly stable now.
  2. An office move, which means my sound setup is now wrong again.

I know, first world problems! But all going according to plan I will be doing some test streams over the weekend (Overwatch and Gungeon most likely) with my first proper stream on Monday.

For those wondering the idea with my Twitch┬ástreams is to play though classic / new point and click adventure games on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10am – 12 noon English time. I will look to start the streams at around 9:15am with a warm up Isaac, Gungeon, Overwatch etc run (to warm up the voice and fix any stream issues) with the adventure games starting at 10am.

The first game through the gauntlet will be Day of The Tentacle (re-mastered edition). VODs will be ported over to YouTube as well.

On the YouTube side I am looking at mastering Isaac Antibirth, which will take me awhile, as well as trying Dues Ex Mankind Divided, with a video going up on Tuesday and Thursday.

Saturday I do not intend to stream, but may drop in with something. Sunday will be dedicated to some Sunday Afternoon Football in the form of Bloodbowl II. Again I am a novice so will start against AI and then see where it goes from there.

Hope to see some of you on Twitch on come Monday for some classic Adventure Game action ­čÖé


Blizzard RPG – A Start of an Exploration

For many years a lot of people have been hoping Blizzard would turn their attention to making a single player RPG. I count myself among these people? The reason for this is I still enjoy story driven games. The fashion may have swung to open world (which I enjoy too) but I still get excited when a story driven game comes out.

Of course the champions of this are Bioware. Mass Effect and Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic before that showed us what story can add to an RPG. They were not the first (I would argue that Ultima 7 had one of the better stories in an early RPG) but they are the best right now.

Then you look at Blizzard and the many worlds they have built, and you wonder, could they compete with Bioware if they developed a single player RPG? Continue reading “Blizzard RPG – A Start of an Exploration”
