It’s been a while since I’ve given a behind the scenes look at what I had planned during the sessions of my D&D Twitch shnow, This is How We Role. But with the current adventure finished, I thought it would be nice to talk about a few things.
New players, new adventure, how exciting! The goal for this session was to bring the new party together and I think it went swimmingly! Continue reading This is How we Role – Episode 12 – Lost in Translocation
It’s time for a sidestory! After the last major session, we kinda lost a couple of players so the downtime episode had to go away while we hunted for replacement players. We’ve found them and we’re getting things ready to resume the campaign. In the meantime, here’s the first of two downtime side-stories. First up it’s Ando.

It’s been a few months since the start of the latest World of Warcraft expansion, Battle for Azeroth and I have to say things have changed in the way I view and consume the game since the last time I wrote. Continue reading World of Warcraft – Then and Now

The world ended somewhere between a plague and many nukes. Pockets of civilisation still exist but mostly it’s all one giant irradiated wasteland.

Last night I finsihed Darksiders III and instead of whooping and feeling excited across the playthrough, as I did with its predecessors, I could only ask myself: What the hell happened? Continue reading Darksiders III – WTF Happened?
I love X-COM, which I think I’ve stated a few times. When the chance presented itself to back the new game by Julian Gollop. the creator of the very first game in the series, UFO: Enemy Unknown and the first set of classic X-COM games—before the Firaxis remake—I jumped at the chance and became a backer for Phoenix Point.
Last week, the cool guys at Snapshot Games sent me a press early access version of the backer build coming out today, so I could take a look and see just how the game is shaping up. Below you’ll find a video of my latest session, up to the point when the game crashed on me. A minor issue with a preview build when the game is this fun.
