You’re Invited to Community Gaming

Consider this your invitation to join me in the games I play. There’ll be games we have in common and there will be games we’ll simply exchange experiences about. Right now, I just want to make the announcement and see how many of you still love your games as much as you say you do.

Civ Nights

My wife and I have decided that I need one evening a week to spend relaxing over a battle of strategy. She’s tired of me dragging her into my culture wars in Civilization 5. And to be truthful I’m tired of her warmongering.

Thus the idea for Civ Sundays was born. Each Sunday evening (PST/Los Angeles) I’ll turn on my friends list and begin a round of Civ. You’re all invited. As we can see each other on Steam, on Sunday nights you’ll know exactly what I’m up to. For multiplayer rounds we’ll lay out some rules and determine how epic or quick we want the match to be. I’ll post recaps of each match just to share my gaming habit with you. For those of you who’ve played this with me, please be sure to tell everyone else what a pleasure it is to share a¬†Civ map with me ūüôā You can find me on Steam by clicking this link or just join the NBI Steam group where most of us can be found hanging around when we’re online.

Cook Off

I see my enthusiasm for the kitchen arts has caused some of you¬†to¬†begin playing Cook, Serve, Delicious ….and so we must celebrate with a feast! Record yourself cooking your favorite and worst menus, then simply post them on Youtube, your stream or your blog to share it. Share your progress! Likewise, I’ll post a challenge menu for the community¬†on occasion so we can have some fun with it. Right now I’m in New Game + which is horrifying, or extra fun depending on how you look at it. Meet me there and share your cooking journey with the rest of us.

For awesome game recording software use Open Broadcaster. It’s open source, free, and easy to use.

Casual Replays

I’ve got some other casual indie-type games in my library that I want to play more of. I’ve found these games fun in the past, but for reasons unknown have stopped playing them. It’s time to resurrect these gems and share them with you!

  • Volgarr the Viking
  • Dungeon of the Endless
  • Cubetractor
  • Transistor

This list will likely grow or just change over time, but right now these are games I want to play more of so I’ll be recording my sessions and posting the videos here for your mockery. If you have a game you’d like me to play, let me know. These replays will be me failing and flailing at these games and I’ll try¬†to do some modest¬†editing to keep the videos interesting, short and to the point. I don’t want these to turn into long LPs, but to give you a taste of what it’s like to watch me struggle through a good game.
