Mostly CS:GO on stream.
I'm still trying to find both the time and willpower to pick up Final fantasy XIII again and finish my playlog.
Need to finish off Breath of Death VII too. With over 5 hours logged into that game I should have been done by now.

I'm pretty sure Coleman wasn't confirmed for next season until the Christmas special aired. Her character was built on being surrounded by mystery so I'm not surprised that people find Clara less interesting now that the "impossible girl" and "someone making sure they meet and stay together" angles are resolved. I still like her as a character, but she's nowhere near as interesting as she was before.
Danny Pinks arch was very weak and I wouldn't be surprised if the reason they rushed it was because they weren't sure weather Coleman would be back for another season.

Its Danny Pink you're thinking of.
Just because he's dead doesn't really mean he's going to stay dead.
They could bring him back to life, they can have Clara travel back in time to see him again and get knocked up somewhere along the way or even
bring him back from the past as a series regular only to have a dramatic final episode where he "has to go back" knowing he's about to die.
Plenty of options really.
It's a show where writers can do whatever the  heck they want as long as they come up with a good enough excuse for it.

Personally, I was hoping for a somewhat darker and more complicated Doctor.
Not to say the season was bad, but I don't think it lived up to the promise of having the doctor push his moral boundaries.
In fact, I'd have to say that Smith's Doctor was actually darker and creepier at times while Capaldi's just comes across as older and grumpier.
The Danny Pink story arch was also rather rushed and it didn't really have the dramatic effect they ware going for.

It was fun, and Nick Frost was a fun-enough Santa.

I thought that was the show's little Christmas joke (Saint Nick and Jack Frost) until I read your comment and looked it up. Having a guy actually called Nick Frost play Santa, brilliant :)

Once again, at 10pm CET (that's roughly an hour from the time of posting), we delve deep into the madness that is Breath of Death VII. Will it be the thrilling conclusion? Probably not, but whatever adventures await DEM and his pals...will have to wait, because today we finally clear out that bloody cave.

POST STREAM EDIT:
The cave has now been fully explored and progress has been made, outstanding! At this pace I might just wrap this up in under 30 hours!

Today at 10pm CET (that is roughly 2 hours from the time this is posted) I will be doing part three of my incredibly "epic" and totally worth watching (would I lie to you?) run. Last time I made stellar progress and in just under 90 minutes managed to get absolutely nothing done, so today we turn it up to 11 and start backtracking as I attempt to loot a previous dungeon! Fantastic, if that's not a quality Tuesday evening I don't know what is.

POST STREAM EDIT
Another day, another stream. After an hour I managed to finish the caste dungeon and beat the boss. Wouldn't be that much of an issue if that bastard didn't keep chugging down potions that restored ALL his health whenever I was about to deliver the final blow. Not enough time to do the backtracking I promised, but I'll get around to it next time...no really...it'll be worth the wait. Everyone knows that backtracking in RPGs is like wine, it only gets better with time. Yeah, wine, lets go with that.
21  Media / Game Journals / Re: Breath of Death VII (Livestream on twitch) on: December 23, 2014, 03:18:08 AM
Not to worry, The idea was to go back to finish looting the cave that connected the previous area with Motherbound but I ended up getting thrown in the dungeon and pretty much spent the entire stream getting wiped and starting over because I kept forgetting to save when I cleared a floor. Took me a while to figure out that the armour enemies have insane defence and I need to use armour ignoring attacks on them like Litas snipe. You missed out on a lot of bumbling but progress wise I'm still more or less where I left off last time.
It should still be floating about in my past broadcasts (at least for a few days) if you get the urge to catch up :)

Today at around 10pm CET I plan on streaming part two of my "epic" journey through Breath of Death VII. It'll be just as bad as the first one, so if you want to waste an hour of your life that you'll never ever get back, drop by my channel.

POST STREAM EDIT:
Stream is over, and after over an hour I've made almost no progress! I'm getting my moneys worth out of this one, that's for sure. As it stands I'm almost 5 hours in and I  only just got my 4th party member. The dungeons are getting trickier and I can't just mash my way through the fights anymore (I found that out the hard way). Having fun, I assume I have about two or so streams until I beat this sucker but at my pace it may very well end up being more.

Breath of Death VII. The game built on satire, nostalgia and countless references.

The Steam sale is upon us and with it comes the Breath of Death & Cthulhu saves the world bundle.
I never tried to stream an RPG before, so this will be a bit of an experiment for me, especially since I have a cough that will most likely last all winter.
I shall make my way through the game for your amusement in an attempt to entertain and poke fun at something that's probably way more funny than I am.
Other features of the show will include
-my feeble attempt at reading game text fluently
-spacing out when I get tired.
-twitch being twitch
If that sounds like a great way to spend a Friday then you can catch the stream at:

http://www.twitch.tv/maxxplays

I intend to start at about 9pm CET, that's about 25 minutes from the time of this post. If you miss it then I'll probably be floating about on my channel for a few days until twitch decides to delete it (Unless of course I'm not happy with it, in which case I'll bin it and it never happened).

POST STREAM EDIT:

There we have it.
After several hours of playing I'm apparently no where near the end of this supposedly short game. Of course, trying to find each and every chest in every dungeon, getting hopelessly lost and having my ass handed to me after forgetting to save on several occasions may have padded things out a bit but I still had fun :)

@Maxx: Never heard of Romancing SaGa: Minstrel's Song and Emperors SaGa? They came out after Unlimited.

Nope
26  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The SaGa (emphasis on the captials) Thread on: December 17, 2014, 07:48:10 AM
SaGa Frontier is to date the worst commercial jRPG I ever remember playing and that's coming from someone who owns Ephemeral Fantasia. SaGa Frontier 2 on the other hand was a great game. From what I understand Unlimited was terrible so now its time for a good one again (unless they released some titles in between that I don't know about).

Decided to stream some Dota 2 last night after not touching the game for a few months. Could have been worse, but it wasn't exactly a stellar performance.
28  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: December 09, 2014, 05:01:36 AM
Beat Five nights at Freddy's. I have the mobile version and let me tell you, dealing with jump scares while riding on a bus at night with some random person sitting next to me was...surprisingly easy. Oddly enough, the next day when I was the last one out of the office and making sure all the lights are off, I got a little creeped out.

Haven't recently had much time for gaming outside of long bus rides but I've been managing to get a race or two in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Now, the game is actually pretty good but "All star" is a bit of a stretch.
You know Sega is struggling to fill in the slots when you get "Football Manager" as a playable character in the opening lineup.

Every so often you guys will bring us news like "Game x is coming to PSN" or similar. It would be nice if you would standardised specifying the region that this news is applicable to since it's not always there. I get that the staff is mostly based in the US but you have a lot of European (like myself), Australian etc. readers that would benefit from the news being a little more specific regarding regions.

Shadow Warrior. Anyone who grew up with late 80's cartoons will like this game even before the first screen fades from black. The fact that the game is pure kick ass doesn't hurt either.
