Eternal - Card Games and Conversations

Normally, I stream Magic the Gathering: Arena every Saturday at 8-10 PM EST on my Twitch channel. As someone who has gotten really into Magic over the past few years, I've enjoyed sharing my appreciation with others.

But this past weekend, Arena's servers were gearing up to be reset in anticipation of moving from Closed Beta to Open Beta, so I didn't feel a strong urge to play it. Instead, I decided to stream a bit of a game I've been slowly diving into. It's called Eternal, and it was made by professional MTG players.

The MTG influence is pretty easy to see, but they make a number of intelligent choices both to alleviate some of the problems inherent to it's inspiration, and take advantage of the fact that the game exists in a digital medium, rather the physical cards that define Magic.

The stream audience and I had a very pleasant back and forth about it, and I thought it would be worth it to share with the rest of you.

Alpha Protocol - Closure Alert - Part 2

Aldowyn, Wil, and I are back once again, continuing our journey of redemption with Closure Alert - Alpha Protocol.

And as a reminder, you can find our original recordings here.

It's been interesting to rewatch the old show in the context of trying to resurrect it in this format. It's been five whole years since then, Disclosure Alert has grown into a bit of a meme among the very limited group of people who even know about it. On top of that, we've all grown in the time since, which really comes off in the recording.

Alpha Protocol - Closure Alert - Part 1

Finally, we're back. After 5 whole years, Aldowyn, anaphysik, and have come back together to finish our Let's Play series on Alpha Protocol.

No longer Disclosure Alert: Welcome... to Closure Alert.

We recorded this on my Twitch channel. Be sure to subscribe and tune in to see us continue our path to redemption.

I cannot even begin to describe how excited I am to go back and finish this after so long. Not only do I have so much to say about Alpha Protocol, but his series highlights both how different the gaming landscape is from 5 years ago, and how much the three of us have changed in that same time.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I, Aldowyn, and anaphysik do!

Dishonored 2 - Talking About New Game+

And one last little surprise. Let's spend a few moments going ham and talking about Dishonored 2's New Game Plus mode.

Thank you so much to everyone who tuned in to even a moment of this series. It was a blast to record with everyone on stream, and I look forward to hanging out with you again!

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider - Improvisation Run - Part 4 (Finale)

At long last, it is finally done. The Outsider, an entity on great power, who influenced the fates of so many, has finally been erased from the world. And with this accomplishment, so to ends our Improvisation Run. It has been an incredible experience for me, and I'm glad to have gone through this whole franchise with you all.

If you want to follow me onto the next series, be sure to follow my Twitch channel for content updates.

This area, where the Outsider truly resides, surrounded by the Eyeless Cult, is where the Void seeps into the living world. This makes it a perfect staging ground for the cult, whose sole purpose is to become one with the powers of the Void, obtaining omniscience and omnipotence.
