What’s Killing My Social Life This Week – RWBY: Grimm Eclispe

{WARNING: MINOR RWBY SPOILERS AHEAD }  

  It’s incredible to see what a fandom can really do to a person. You’d be milling around minding your own business, reading, listening to music, or watching a show and for a brief moment you would be fine. It would start slowly at first, masquerading as the tiniest hint of curiosity, a growing hunger to find out more about the thing you like. Questions will begin to pop-up inside your head and soon after, your search history. Who are the creators of the thing I like? What are their interests? What is their Twitter and Tumblr url? Can I meet them and how? W̧̕҉H̴͞E̷͜͠R͏E ͠DO̧ ̀T͟͠Ḩ̵E҉͏́Y̵͘͘ ̷̀͘L̵͡IV́E?͢͢ Are there other people who like the thing I like? Where can I find and talk to them? Where can I see their fanart. W͡H͏E҉R̡Ȩ ̛CAN̡ I S̵E͢E ̡TH̢ȨIR F͘IC͟? It is at that moment that you are lost, you are a fan. Surrender your emotions along with all hope of ever getting out. Make sure you strap in, the feels train will be departing soon. If you can’t find sturdy enough safety belts, then just cling to whatever other object you can find and smile as the turbulence tears your fragile body apart. Take comfort in knowing that you are not alone for this ride and that your gruesome death will be regarded with awe and/or embarrassment by future generations. Sew your limbs back on with the aid of an ungodly amount of hand-made clothing. Sometimes cosplaying can mend the wounds that fic and art cannot. Upload fan videos, ships, theories smut and whatever else you can contribute to the fandom. Above all, always remember to respect your fellow trash.

What’s Killing My Social Life This Week – Dragon Age: Origins

Do you like games? Do you like games with dragons in them? Do you like playing said games? Imagine a game such as that and try to picture yourself playing it. Are you doing it? Are you? Good. Now stare at a wall for three weeks whilst thinking intently what that game would be like and you don’t have to play Dragon Age: Origins.

What’s Killing My Social Life This Week – Dungeon of the Endless

Are you tired of these games that… fuck it, I’m not doing an introductory paragraph this time.

Dungeon of the Endless (not to be confused with, Legend of the Dungeon, Dungeonland or I-have-no-creativity-when-it-comes-to-naming-my-game) is, according to that Face Recognition app, a 48-year-old squirrel with one gammy eye and an eating disorder. The story is similar to Risk of Rain’s in almost every way; you are a person/s on a prison ship heading towards a place of unknown place-ness, when suddenly you crash down on an alien planet due to the actions of a particularly aggressive plot-device. Finding yourself in what’s presumably a mutant-infested, underground research lab, you have to use your wit, strength and charisma to escape in as few pieces as possible. The game itself is a weird hybrid of TDs, Dungeon crawlers, RPGs and resource-management games with a few rogue like elements sprinkled on top. Oh and also it has a Tutu. Did I mention the tutu? Twice now, you reply.

What’s Killing My Social Life This Week – Starbound

{Warning! Starbound is still on early access, representation not product full blah blah unfinished game blah is this an early access phase I’m going through, or will I finally move on to  playing shit that works blah blah}

Do you want your Terraria world to be less fantasy and more sci-fi, yet still stick to the Lovecraftian undertone? Have you spent hours on forums, just looking for the right mod to make your game more like Battlestar Galactica? Well then there might just be a game for you and your extremely specific tastes.

What’s Killing My Social Life This Week – The Five Nights at Freddie’s Series

image

Uhhh….hello? Hello hello? Hello and welcome to a quick analysis of the Five Nights at Freddy’s games! As a gamer that also studies game design, this series has been fascinating to me. Not because it’s scary or or the complexity of its mechanics, but just how much discussion it has caused. The first game is made up of something like 8 animations, a bunch of still images, and almost no actual gameplay, but has absolutely captivated the internet.
