Let’s Play! – The Witcher – Ep.2

 

Lookie here, mortals – I’ve managed to actually get a second stream done and uploaded!  Still now live viewers/subscribers – but that’s ok, I think we have all learned by now that I can happily carry on a conversation with myself (Editor’s Note: …what’s that supposed to mean?)  So, if you would be so kind, watch the replay of Let’s Play! w/ Evil Wizard, Esq. – The Witcher – Ep. 2 on Twitch or right here below!

As for some other goodies on their way, I’m still working out the script and a recording time for my flame-haired offspring and I to sit down and record the first episode of our podcast – with tentative topics being a breakdown of the new Legion expansion of the popular (and free to play) Diablo-killer, Path of Exile, as well as a discussion of the fantastic start that new North American pro wrestling promotion All Elite Wrestling has gotten off to recently!  In addition, I’ve been bitten by the bug to do some old-school D&D dungeon crawling and have been powering my way through Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and will be bringing you my thoughts as I finish that campaign and carry over to the Siege of Dragonspear interquel.  So you’ll be seeing, hearing, and reading me more and more, fleshbags!  (Editor’s Note: Uh, that sounded kind of threatening, don’t you think…?)  MWAHAHAHAHA! – EWE

Let’s Play! – The Witcher – Ep. 1

 

Good evening, mortals!  As I said last time, my fire-haired eldest spawn has decided that I should do a series of Let’s Play streams taking us through the world of The Witcher.  To anyone that was able to join me live, thanks so much, and I’ll try to get the audio better next time.  But if you missed it, well, there’s no time like the present to get caught up!  Join me, won’t you?

Here’s a link to the original video on Twitch since I CAN’T GET WORDPRESS.COM TO EMBED THE GODDAMN VIDEO!!

I also uploaded it to my YouTube channel – and I would be ever so grateful if you followed and subscribed to either or both!  (Editor’s Note: “Grateful” here having the meaning “won’t immediately torch your village.”)  YOU’RE NOT HELPING.

That’s all for now, fleshbags!  To anyone in the US, have a safe Independence Day, but remember – if you watch or support the Orange Hobgoblin’s Nazi Dictator Military Parade, I have a meteor with your name on it. – EWE

The Ever Expanding Evil Empire

You may recall, humans, that I had recently mentioned some changes that were possibly in the works here at the Ominous Dark Tower (TM) and that details would be forthcoming.  Well, that day has come!  After consulting with my hordes of darkness (Editor’s Note: meaning me, which probably doesn’t count, his sons, and Malevolent Moogle) HORDES OF DARKNESS, I have decided that you all have not been graced with enough of me only posting here.  As such, I have decided to expand my empire: in addition to getting back to posting more Game Night videos, I will be live streaming more on Twitch and posting some Let’s Play videos on YouTube.  I’m also in the early planning stages, along with my boys, of writing and recording a periodic podcast focused primarily on gaming, comedy, and wrestling (although they rejected my naming it “GCW” and doing a loop of wrestling fans chanting “G-C-DUB!  G-C-DUB”) with the occasional tangent when I feel the need to rant off-topic.

First suggestion from the oldest son? A video series through the Witcher franchise.

Further details and links will be coming soon, but to give you an idea how excited I am to do this, I cancelled my Netflix and subscribed to Game Pass just to give me more material to work with and fewer excuses not to work on it.  I hope you enjoy what we have coming soon as much as you’ve enjoyed my ramblings here thus far.  Because I’m going to need help and input to make this work…as I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing.  Talk to you more soon, mortals! – EWE

Indie Corner: Last Dream

Welcome to mid-week, mortals!  You’re halfway to…wondering where in the hell your weekend went before doing all of this over again, for the rest of your natural lives.  BWAHAHAHAHA!  Ah, but I don’t bear all bad news – in your spare time, you could stumble upon spectacular little gaming gems like the one I’m about to tell you about!

This is actually a two game series that was funded on Kickstarter and developed by White Giant RPG Studios, and was brought to my attention by my very good friend and fellow streamer, as well as husband to my bestest friend in the world Malevolent Moogle, the one and only Absurdum.  Please, please, pretty please, find and follow him on YouTube and Twitch – he is very funny and talented and knows his games!  Last time we got together, I saw him playing what appeared to be a retro-RPG and asked what it was.  After watching him play it for a while longer and hearing from him about how much content the game and its sequel roughly contained, I pulled them up on Steam and found them to be on sale in a bundle for under $5 total – and you can guess what happened.

I have not yet progressed far through the main story of the game yet, but that is primarily because I have been reveling in the comfort-food-feeling of the combat and leveling mechanics.  For those with fond memories of being able to lose themselves in an hour or so of fast-paced, turn-based combat with a relatively steady trickle of rewards in the form of skill points and gold for new abilities and equipment, you will be right at home, and the variety of character classes ensures that multiple playthroughs are unique in playstyle.

If these games are still on sale on Steam, and you have any fondness for old school JRPGs at all, this is a no-brainer from my standpoint.  If they are not on sale, this still feels like a pretty solid value, but the developer’s website appears to have a demo version available for download, so try it out for yourself and if you like it as much as I do, by all means, support an indie dev, humans! – EWE
