      Two new LPs with Dylon

      7 months ago

      Dylon wanted to play the Plague Knight DLC for Shovel Knight on the channel but we have to beat the whole game first. That playlist can be watched here

      Untitled-2_zps6yfexbuv.jpg

      The next game we started playing is SOMA, a disturbing and nightmarish horror game very much inspired by the writings of Philip K. Dick. You can watch that playlist here

      SOMA%201_zpstmhqzkym.jpg

      It would please me if you gave them a watch, if you enjoy them please subscribe.

      VGP

      9 months ago

      Video Game Pausecast, henceforth referred to as VGP because initialisms are all the rage, is a new YouTube channel I've started with my friend @Dylon (he's not very popular so you've probably never heard of him). We've even got a real catchy URL for it - youtube.com/VGPausecast . Go forth, subscribe.

      There are a few of the videos him and I made over on my personal channel right now in which we take a look at newer games in a long form preview/initial thoughts. Those kind of videos will come as new games we're interested come out.

      The real news about this is we've begun a Shenmue LP, we've got the first couple parts recorded and they will post on Tuesdays and Thursdays til we finish the game starting this next week. Other videos will happen here and there as time allows, if we get far enough ahead of schedule in Shenmue we can start a second LP.

      I'm excited and Dylon at least pretended to be excited as well. It's all new to us so there might be some clumsiness to things while we figure the format and ourselves out better.

      Don't forget, you need to subscribe.

      I'm enraptured by Everybody's Gone to the Rapture (Short Review)

      9 months ago

      As many know, I like video games, a lot. My only stint with higher education was in game design after all. It's a medium capable of the most unique stories and experiences possible at the moment. Yesterday I played one of those games.

      Being a stone cold atheist, you'd think a game called "Everybody's Gone to the Rapture" wouldn't interest me in the slightest. Lucky for me I knew it's based on a lot of 60s and 70s British sci-fi. Taking place in June 1984 the you explore Shropshire after a mysterious apocalypse and uncover the events in the lives of the people in this rural valley leading up to the end of the world. It was the most moving story I've experienced in the past couple years. You peer into their lives and watch their lives happening and how they deal with all the human trials and tribulations (affairs, troubles at home, teenagers in love, etc...) as they slowly come to grips with an end they only suspected was coming.

      The story isn't told to you, you have to find it by searching the beautifully rendered homes, streets and paths. This story is delivered by figures of light representing imprints of these people's lives on the now vacant world, others bits of narrative are echos in electronics left behind like radios and phones. And the more story you find the more you come to know these people making the eventual vision of them when everything ends inherently carry more weight and meaning. You are doing yourself a great disservice if you aren't relentless in your search for as many story triggers as possible.

      11823048_1078800202131086_14330540281613

      All this is punctuated by a moving and beautiful music score (it's on Spotify, go listen). It's only on PS4, published by Sony so it's unlikely to be released anywhere else.

      I recorded B-roll of the entire playthrough and am tinkering with a script, if time and motivation allows I might finally try my hand at a video review.

      Just Lookin' again... this time at Bloodborne

      1 year ago

      Made another one of these video with @Dylon. It's a free-form chat between us about our initial impressions with Bloodborne, think podcast about 1 game taking place over prerecorded footage I captured. We talk about everything to do with the game and pepper in the usual fun BSing friends tend to do. Game talk and jokes, it's a lot of fun for us and we want to do more.

      You can watch the Bloodborne Just Lookin' here (It's long, like I said, think podcast. So watch some of it, all of it, stop and come back later)

      Be sure to give it a like and let Dylon and myself know what you thought of the video in this journals comments here, on the video or even at us on Twitter.

    • Murph

      Lookin' at games with Dylon

      1 year ago

      I'm not the best at talking to myself, so I tricked @Dylon in to talking to me about a video game we both played.

      You can watch it here

      Just%20Lookin%20FFXV%20Demo_zpshioobwdx.

      It was a lot of fun and I hope you watch and enjoy it. And keep in mind that it's a first effort and we basically winged it, the format needs work and will improve the more I do this with my friends. Let me know what you think and if you liked it go tell Dylon thank you cause it wouldn't have happened if he hadn't lent me his time.

      Getting back to it

      1 year ago

      Those that follow me on Twitter probably know things haven't been going well personally for me the past 6 months. My father passed away in late Sept after a long battle from a collapsed lung that happened when they were draining fluid retained in his chest due to his congestive heart failure. Christmas day we woke to our ferret bleeding from his eye, his eye perforated and had to put him down. 40 days later we had to put down another ferret (after several emergency visits in the month before hand). Now finding out on Friday that our third ferret has lymphoma and has limited time left. It's been exhausting, seemingly relentless and expeeeensive. Not asking for sympathy, in fact I forbid it. Just some back story into how things have been for me lately.

      I've always fiddled around with making videos but after my father passed I started making more videos, mainly to distract myself. It was fun, the few people that watch them seemed to like them. But with everything piling on, resulting money troubles, etc... I haven't made many videos lately. I would like to fix that, things are still pretty goddamn depressing but I need the distraction and amusing people always makes me feel good. So check these out:

      Before finding out about Stormy's lymphoma I played Dying Light a bit and made a few videos

      Part 1
      Part 2
      Part 3

      Before that I made a REmake video (intending to make more but sick ferrets happened)

      Part 1

      So by all means give them a watch, my videos are just me being silly over a game giving genuine impressions of the game as I play. Check out anything else on my channel if you like, I made some videos with @BioHRay and @Dylon way back when, those were good (don't get to make videos like that lately sadly) I admit to my inexperience and ask for feedback but hopefully I can entertain you, at the very least keep my mind on something besides recent misfortunes.

      EDIT: It would appear I'm Featured User, so umm... Hi.

      Hi guy, I was thinking--you're a fairly quiet guy, and nothin' wrong with that, but it does make for low-energy streams. How much have you considered getting a partner to stream with regularly (some friend in the room, or over Skype?) You mentioned hookin' up with Trevor at some point, even.

      • Murph

        2 years ago

        Probably not, Dylon is the only one with time and he's not interested in participating on mine and there's not been an invitation to come on his.

        Oh well, my streams are before I go to bed cause that's the only time I can and weekends no one shows up in the middle of the day.

      • Myshu chupariffic

        2 years ago

        Aye, aye. I stream with my sister, but I can only hook up with 'er once a week (or less), so I get that. Hopefully something works out for ya!

      • Murph

        2 years ago

        Been trying, got Dylon on once. It was the first time we'd actually talked outside of Twitter (besides passing at rtx). Need to get to know each other better but he's busy with his own stream. www.twitch.tv/beardedmurph/c/3272472
        Trevor will be on eventually but he's too busy these days. Steamed with my friend Brandon during my extra life but he's usually working when I stream.
