So me and the partner decided that we wanted to play a game together. He had a look through the board and card games that we have, and we both decided on playing the Gears of War board game. This board game has been with him since his university years back in Groningen. The games usually take between 1 to 3 hours, maybe even longer. This was my first time playing, and I honestly cannot wait to play more!
Today on Twitch, I finished my first stream of the month. I also finished the first indie game of the month. The first game of choice was Pony Island. Pony Island was a gift to me from a dear friend. It was also highly recommended. The only things he told me about the game was that I HAD to stream it and that it would be an experience I would never forget. Let me tell you something, it will most definitely be an experience I will never forget. Here are my thoughts on the game.
As a twitch streamer, I will play hundreds of games every year. From simple 2 hour games to full blown 40+ hour games, I’ll play them until I finish. Of course if I’m not enjoying the game, I will just stop. I hate forcing myself to play a game I’m really not getting into! While off stream, I enjoy playing more casual games. My games of choice tend to sway towards more indie games compared to AAA’s.
Sure, I play these indie games a lot off stream, but whenever I want to relax on Twitch, I love streaming them. I have always said that if I am able to enjoy a game off stream just as much as streaming it, then the game is fantastic! Here is my list of Indie games I love going back to!
Today is International Women’s Day. Now I’m not the type of person that celebrates every single “international insert blank day,” however this one is enjoyable to think about. Just looking at twitter today has made me really thoughtful about how far women have come. This also makes me think of the strong women characters that are in games and books. Below I will be talking about my personal favorite women characters that are in games and in books.
