Tangential Recreation 1×11: Unepic

Let us give thanks... for never having to play this tedious bloody game again.

Five Nights At Freddy’s

Quick! Aboard the YouTube bandwagon before it finally rolls out of town!

I’ve got a new security job! Nothing can possibly go wrong!

Game & Watch: Mean City: Learn English Or DIE!

Meet the English language tutor Frank Miller would have created.

Can we (myself and Mr. Matt Dillon) stop the villanous Middle Aged Harley Quinn before she wreaks revenge on the most deserving city since Sodom? Well, yes, probably. But not without some regret. Screw this place.

Tangential Recreation: Minecraft / Sonic

Literally a cannon full of bees / HEROES. DON'T. CRAFT

In this episode, I am the best at Sonic All-Stars. And some other stuff.

Also, I just realised I forgot to post last week’s. Literally the longest I’ve ever played Minecraft.

“Let’s Play” The Magic Circle

An adventure more than twenty years in the making! Like Lords of Midnight III, only with a chance not to suck!

You know, I’m not convinced Ish Gilder deserves his legendary reputation…

Should you feel like I missed anything in this one, check out the full game here. Filthy disbelievers.

Game & Watch: Blue Heat

Can you solve The Case Of The Cover Girl Murders?

It’s a bit like Her Story… if her story involved making a million annoying censor bars. Join me and my special guest Resulka as we play through this ‘classic’ FMV shot alongside an erotic thriller you’ve never heard of. The rest is going up soon, but Patreons can watch the whole thing right now. Just log into the dashboard for the link.

Tangential Deviation 1×08: Borderlands

Still chasin' chitlins, whiskey and skirt...

This week – random impromptu singing (sorry!), Reddit woes, the morality of unreleased games, and being bored of the Borderlands. (Though Tales of the Borderlands is pretty fun)

Fallen London And Me: Lost In Reflections

She was July in summer and winter...

It looks like the Calendar Council is missing one of their months...

It looks like the Calendar Council is missing one of its months…

Looking for a delightful new chunk of Fallen London? This month’s Exceptional Story was written by myself and professional word-deity Alexis Kennedy, and you’ll enjoy it. Really! It’s a tale of ravens and music, of mirrors and possible futures. To play through it, you need to be a Fallen London subscriber (“Exceptional Friend”) during July, though it’ll be available to purchase individually in a few months for those who miss it during its debut.

Game & Watch: Revolution X (Complete)

MUSIC IS THE WEAPON! A machine-gun with unlimited ammo is also the weapon.

First of a new thing then. People have been asking for more stuff like the old Crap Shoot streams, which I’d be willing to do, but at the moment don’t really have the audience for. (You need a decent one to give them energy). So instead, for the moment anyway, trying an alternate approach – unscripted LP style playthroughs with a guest to bounce things off. A few recording issues and umming, but hopefully okay.

The plan is to do a mix of games – inevitably, the next one is almost certainly going to be an adventure of some kind – but wanted to start with something relatively short. So! Behold the light-gun shooter about which it is said “Oh yeah, that exists.” How long will its 10 second loops of Walk This Way survive YouTube’s Content ID?

Oh, and if you want to see the ‘good’ ending, it’s here.

A Random Selection Of Things That May Interest And Entertain...

Vampires Of Santa Monica

A few rambling thoughts on real-world settings after an after-dark ramble through the city of fallen angels in the company of Deb Of Night.

Lamb Of Columbia, Lamb Of Rapture

A little idle musing on Bioshock’s two heroines, and what their similarities and differences ultimately say about their respective games
