Mysterious Island - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


A hybrid of RPG and survival with impressive AI and charming characters!

Mysterious Island is an adventure RPG available free for a very limited time over at itch.io. You play as a band of colorful characters stranded on an island after their ship crashed. Exploring the island, you discover a mix of inhabitants - from friendly talking totems and helpful natives to dangerous animals and monsters led by an evil witch. Your goal is to build a raft so you can sail home, which means facing the island's dangers that stand in your way.

Down the Rabbithole - Hayven Games (WoW Exploration)


Videos exploring the hidden or hard-to-reach places in WoW are what really got me interested in the game many years ago. While watching some random videos today, I stumbled upon Hayven Games, a channel devoted to finding the really hidden stuff. Take the above video for example - a look at an alpha version of Ironforge with two tiers, an entirely different Great Forge area and tram lines running to both Stormwind and Gnomeregan.

My interest in WoW dropped right around the time Hayven's channel began, so it's no wonder I haven't noticed this awesome channel until now. I'll certainly be sinking a few hours of free time into these videos, taking in sights of things that never saw the light of day. There's just something about seeing these alternate/hidden versions of the game I find intriguing, even though I have no interest in the title itself anymore. Nostalgia obviously plays a part of it, but I think it's more about imagining what could've been.

The Ultimate Test... of RNG! Arena - RNGBS


Grimestreet Informant (and to a lesser extent, Grimestreet Protector) doing work in arena again. This deck had a 63.8 tier score (according to Hearth Arena), the lowest I've had since before Christmas. It fared much better than I could've hoped and I feel the cards mentioned above are what carried it so far.

Mega Man 2.5D - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


"Highlights" might be a bit of a misnomer - perhaps a fail compilation is more appropriate!

Mega Man 2.5D is a fan-made game lovingly crafted by a small team led by Peter Sjöstrand. I'm pressed for time, so I'll cut to the chase. This game does a wonderful job at recreating the classic series you remember from the NES. It's compatible with Xbox controllers, allows for co-op play and even has save features! Be sure to give this one a try!

Echo of Soul - Week 4 - MMOMG (w/bonus Youtube gripe)


It's finally here! Apologies for the delay, but I didn't really have access or means to finish the episode until now. I intend to make a small channel update video soon to explain the delay in content and what's coming next, as I feel my Youtube-only viewers probably have no idea what's going on.

Speaking of which, I'd really like if Youtube had other ways to communicate to subscribers other than uploading videos. There used to exist a "Feed" section that you could post messages, but it either doesn't exist or is so buried that it doesn't matter anymore. I've heard that they're trying out a similar feature for the large channels, hopefully we'll see it roll out to everyone else soon.

PC Status & New Etsy Stuff!

A friend let me borrow a power supply, and thankfully I've learned that the rest of my system is unharmed. After I figure out what I'm using permanently, I'll sort out the Youtube and Twitch stuff. My guess is that MMOMG - Wildstar will be pushed back to April, but we'll see.

In the meantime, I have new stuff on Etsy with more coming soon!

For the sports fans, a selection of coasters with fully customized colors!

Comic book fans might appreciate this snazzy Superman beadsprite, complete with stand!

PC Died Mid-Stream, Temporary Focus Shift

Last week while livestreaming, my PC's power supply went belly-up. I've been having minor issues with it off and on (no pun intended) the last 6-8 months, so I'm not too surprised that it finally died. Other priorities got in the way of me replacing it sooner, and now I really have no choice but to get a new one.

I still haven't gotten to see if the rest of the system is OK - nothing looks damaged, but that doesn't mean much of course. If only the power supply needs replaced, I should be up and running again soon-ish (say within a month). If something more serious was affected (let's hope not), the delay will be quite a lot longer.

In the meantime, I'll be focusing a little more on my Etsy shop with some new designs! I'll post new items when they become available, so stay tuned!
