Let’s Play – The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit

The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is a short, free, prequel to Life is Strange 2.

I played Life is Strange before I started YouTubing. It is a prime example of a game that I wished I had recorded so I could have shared my thoughts and looked back on the experience. So when this popped up on the PS Store I had to give it a go.

I still haven’t gotten around to Life is Strange: Before the Storm or Life is Strange 2, but they are on the list. For now, this was a lovely little experience that I am glad I played.

Let’s Play – The Vanishing of Ethan Carter – Abandoned

What initially started as a Let’s Play unfortunately got abandoned.

This is a very important statement – I do not do horror. This game started out so well. I was so impressed by the detective sections and the puzzles. It felt so great to play. Then came the moment. A moment that scarred me to this very day. The game isn’t technically a horror but I felt like I couldn’t continue.

I do want to say that it is worth a watch. The game did so many things well. If it had continued how it started it probably would have been one of my favorite games. Instead, it was my first failed Let’s Play. In case you haven’t noticed.. I am a top class wimp. I still sometimes re-watch the end of my play-through, just for shits and giggles.

Let’s Play – Detroit: Become Human

Detroit: Become Human was the first brand new game that I did a Let’s Play of.. and it did not disappoint. Developed by Quantic Dream, I missed the era of Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, so I could not have been more excited for this one.

I get very immersed in story games and went all in. They weren’t lying when they said choices matter. It was such a fun game and I recommend to everyone to play it yourself before watching a play-through.. have your own experience first.

Let’s Play – Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy

This game was.. an experience. Being a huge fan of Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, playing Quantic Dreams previous title felt like a no brainer.

Although I have played the full game and watched a fair bit back, I am not entirely sure I could tell you what it is about. It starts great and descends into.. well.. you’ll see.

If you are looking for other content about this game I highly recommend the Watch out for Fireballs podcast episode. It gave me lots of laughs. Listen to the Episode here!

Let’s Play – The Nonary Games: 999

My third Let’s Play and my longest to date! Not my first ever visual novel but my first in a very long time.

My blind play-through of The Nonary Games:999 is probably my most watched series to date. I am so pleased with how it went, especially the order that I got my endings. It was such a great experience, Virtues Last Reward is definitely going to be my next long series.

Let’s Play – Uncharted: Drakes Fortune

This was my second Let’s Play, and to be honest my first proper attempt at playing a shooter that isn’t Grand Theft Auto. I think I did okay, considering!

This is my blind play-through of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. When I decided to play the game I had no idea that it takes the turn it does in the second third of the game. Still traumatised.

Let’s Play – Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture

My first ever Let’s Play, back when I recorded and edited everything on the PS4 console and made my thumbnails on Microsoft Paint!

Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is a Walking Simulator set in the fictional British village of Yaughton. Wandering around, we get to know the residents and start to unravel the mysteries of what went down in this town.

PS. I had no idea what Rapture meant.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
