So another Friday is mercifully upon us, and that means that once again, myself, Dracollia, Beefer, Monkey, and our Special Buddy (along with Zero, our Feline Overlord) got together for our weekly gathering of gaming goodness! On the slate for this week was Samurai Spirit from Fun Forge. It’s a ton of fun, and unlike many of our card or board games, it’s cooperative (Editor’s Note: …ostensibly…) rather than competitive. However, while the average play time on the game’s website lists 20-45 minutes, our group’s…more colorful dynamic resulted in a significantly longer session. Also, I’m beginning to seriously worry that my son might be insane. And not just because he’s my offspring.
Anyway, we gave a shot at a streaming client for a live Twitch stream, but it wasn’t working out, so we just shot the video for later upload. And interestingly enough, even uploading it to Twitch didn’t work, so it’s a YouTube only week this week, unless you’d rather just watch below.
Next week, I’ll endeavor to either stream live to YouTube or have a working Twitch stream. Unless I don’t have time – I do this for free, after all. Much as I might like to do it for a living. Until next time, kiddos! – EWE
Mortals! So, you may have noticed that this entry and video are simply entitled “Game Night” rather than “Friday Game Night” as is my usual practice of getting together with my regular crew of miscreants. This is for a very good reason – and that reason is God of War. My entire crew and I sat enraptured on Friday night well into the evening as I began the opening hours of Sony’s absolute masterpiece upon it’s release. As a fan of the previous God of War games, I don’t think I can stress enough just what an incredible achievement this new game is – it should be played by everyone. Fans of God of War games, fans of games at all. Absolutely everything about it has been stellar thus far, and I am enjoying absolutely every moment I spend with it, and am thoroughly excited to bring you my detailed thoughts on it as I progress further into the game. All this is to say, however, that my crew and I didn’t get to our game stream until the following day.
But it was worth the wait, because thanks to my absolute bestie Malevolent Moogle and her hubby Absurdum taking a trip to PAX and bring me back some gifts, my crew and I got to play a new card game from publisher Ninth Level Games, Schroedinger’s Cats! It was a lot of fun, and is a much quicker play than some other card games – so take a look and see if it looks like something you and your gaming groups might enjoy! You can find the video at YouTube and Twitch, or just watch it below!
Hope you enjoy! But seriously – go play God of War. Now. Right now. – EWE
Salutations, humans! Tonight it’s time for something a little different – for the blog if not for myself. You see, every Friday night I gather together with my closest cabal of chicanery and celebrate the end of the infernal work week by reveling in some gaming goodness. Now, while some of our exploits are certainly not going to win me any Father of the Year Awards anytime soon, it was decided that we should give a try to opening up our little shindigs to you out there. Being the utter novice at video production that I am, I decided not to jump feet first into live-streaming, but instead recorded us playing one of our favorites, Cards Against Humanity – and oh, it was a good time.
So join EWE, his spawn Beefer and Monkey, sexy succubus Dracollia, adorable Special Buddy, and Zero the Feline Emperor for a decidedly NSFW evening of entertainment! You can join us on YouTube or Twitch or if you’re a lazy bastard (Editor’s Note: Like him) then just watch it right here!
Hope you all enjoy, and please, while I never discourage people from hate, if you feel compelled to lecture me in the comments about my poor parenting skills, save it – my kiddos are well adjusted, brilliant, grounded (in the good sense), and happy. And Special Buddy is just perfect! Until next time, humans. – EWE
