It’s been a while but for a couple of weeks now I’ve returned to Overwatch, been playing and improving my skills every time. The last time I played was months ago and had to quit because the toxicity in the competitive mode got to me. I couldn’t tolerate the level of abuse teammates and opponents levelled upon each other for the most meaningless of reasons. Continue reading Back to Overwatch – I love Quick Play!
It’s that time of the year again, when speedrunners from around the world get together for a week-long marathon of game, space and time breaking playthroughs of both famous mainstream games and some obscure gems of the gaming world of which only the runners themselves and their community have heard of.
Yes, it’s Games Done Quick, specifically Summer Games Done Quick, raising money and awareness for Médecins Sans Frontières, aka Doctors Without Borders. Last year the speedrunners community raised nearly $1.3 million and you can be sure they’ll attempt to beat that record this week, using their amazing incentives to draw donors.

For the past few months, I’ve been pumping out videos for a series of Let’s Play videos I like to call LawfulGeek Plays. I’ve run these episodes in various formats and schedules, the latest one being a Monday to Friday schedule with three episodes per day, one for the games I’ve been playing.
For the past couple of weeks I haven’t had any episodes, as I’ve just moved to another country and I’m not in my own place with the proper internet to upload them in bulk. But the break has given me time to think and I’ve realised that the schedule I have right now isn’t working. It’s not attracting more viewers and it’s very time-consuming for me, as I need to record dozens of episodes ahead of time to keep up to date. As much as I love recording and playing the games, it does cut into the time I need for other projects, considerably so. Continue reading LawfulGeek Plays Rescheduling!
A few weeks ago I announced my participation in this year’s Extra Life, planning to stream for four days, Friday 6th to Monday 9th of November, with the main Extra Life event takin place on the 7th, during which I will mostly be playing Tomb Raider games, as I am part of the Team Tomb Raider Community!
I’m currently hard at work getting the schedule and all the raffles in place, as well as sharpening my hosting skills with my Nightly Twitch Stream. I’m streaming Monday to Friday 8-11pm GMT+1 (which will revert to GMT in October), which is about 3-6pm EST. Continue reading Extra Life 2015: Looking for group!
Last year I was part of another site’s writing staff and through them I had the honour, the pleasure and the privilege of participating in Gameblast 2014, raising money for SpecialEffect, a UK-based organisation that focuses on helping people with disabilities enjoy the world of gaming and in turn helping them through gaming. It was a wonderful experience that left me with the desire to do more. Continue reading Here Comes a New Challenger! – Extra Life 2015
