Psyche Plays Outlast…and fails at it

If you missed my first post about Outlast, let me give you a quick recap! Basically, I’m a wuss, and I decided it was a great idea to pick up indie horror game Outlast and give it a shot. Not only that, but I thought, “Hey, since I’m going to play Outlast anyway, why not record it? Or better yet, why not stream it live so everyone can laugh at my stupid face as I scream?!”

So that’s what I did. Make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel for more videos. I release a new horror game video every Saturday for Scaredy-Cat Saturday! You know what that means…there’ll be a new one later on today! Oh, joy…

League of Legends worlds semi-finals start today!

The League of Legends worlds semi-finals start today!The League of Legends Season 3 World Championships have been raging on for the last few weeks, and as a European player last weekend I was biting my nails watching the FNATIC vs Cloud9 match, hoping I’d be seeing my region playing again soon! Unfortunately Gambit didn’t make it through, but I’m excited to know that later today (since it’s technically semis day!) I’ll be able to watch an EU team play once again thanks to FNATIC’s impressive victory last weekend.

The semis kick off at 4:00am, in just under four hours, with two Korean giants, SK Telecom T1 facing off against Najin Black Sword. Later on, at 8:00pm we’ll get to see the terrifying Chinese top seed, Royal Club, playing against the Season 1 winners, FNATIC.

While I’ll be watching both matches, I’m really looking forward to the latter. I’m nervous for FNATIC; Royal is an amazing team and they played incredibly well in their quarters match against fellow Chinese team OMG. I’ve got beers and girlie alcopops in the fridge ready for the match, and I’ve cancelled my streaming plans for tomorrow evening. I may invite fellow fans to join me in my Twitch chat to hang out and chat about the games before, during and after. How will you be watching the semi-finals?
