Hungry Eyes! Don’t Starve

I’ve been meaning to tell you about this feeling that woooon’t subsiiiiide!

Yup, I’ve got hungry eyes, and the only thing that’ll satisfy them is Don’t Starve.

Carrots, berries, murdered rabbits. I’ll eat it all!

In Don’t Starve, you survive against the elements and the encroaching darkness, hoping to last just one more day before Satan takes your soul. Or something like that. I honestly just want to make jerky.

Follow me tonight, folks, at 10:00PM EST on the MikeReverb1 Twitch Stream!

Man Is The True Danger In DayZ

I killed them.

All three of them.

They might have been brothers. Maybe cousins. They dressed alike–army fatigues–and carried boxes of ammunition. They were bandits, and several people had already died by their hands. The road was littered with bodies, trophies, warnings to passersby.

And my friend Aviate and I gunned them down on the hill outside of Elektro.

This is DayZ at its finest. Emergent stories. I am a survivor, and I will not be a victim.

Death Incarnate

Follow me tonight at 10:00PM EST on the MikeReverb1 Twitch Stream. But be prepared to do whatever it takes to survive!

Also, I like beards.

Creating a Rogue’s Gallery in Rogue Legacy

I’m happy to say that my foray into videogame streaming on Twitch.tv has been quite successful.

I’ve met a wonderful group of people who enjoy gaming, joking around, and being generally awesome. I’ve certainly not abandoned my writing; it’s simply running concurrent to the game streaming. 🙂

Tonight, I plan on playing a game called Rogue Legacy, an action-platform game where every time you die, one of your heirs tries to avenge you. It’s brutally difficult, requiring expert timing, a keen eye, and super human eye-hand coordination.

Yup, this is how the game looks. Crazy!

Yup, this is how the game looks. Crazy!

As always, I will be streaming my playthrough tonight at 10:00PM EST on my MikeReverb1 Twitch Channel and would love to see my friends there!

Videogame Giveaway Tonight on Twitch!

 

Most of you know me as a writer. Poetry, flash fiction, the novel that I’m (STILL) working on.

But there’s another large part of my life that I haven’t really shared much on WordPress: videogames.

I’m a hardcore gamer through and through; when I’m not working or writing, I usually have a controller or keyboard glued to my hands. Final Fantasy, The Last of US, Bioshock Infinite, DayZ: you name it, I’ve probably played it.

I’ve begun streaming on Twitch.tv–http://twitch.tv/mikereverb1–which is a website where people join a chatroom and talk to you as you play videogames. We talk about philosophy, new games that are coming out, plans for the holiday: anything really. It’s a wonderfully interactive community, and I’ve enjoyed it immensely for the past 3 weeks or so.

Now I want to give back to my lovely viewers who have supported me so much; therefore, I’m holding a videogame giveaway tonight at 10:00 PM EST!

The games I will be giving out are as follows:

1.DayZ
2.Hotline Miami
3.Starbound
4.Half-Life 2 + Episode 1
5.Portal
6.Braid
7.Papers Please

It‘s a combination of games past, present, and future–sort of like the ghosts that visit Scrooge. You don’t have to jump through any hoops to be eligible–simply show up–http://twitch.tv/mikereverb1–at 10:00PM EST,  follow my stream, chat with us, laugh a little, and say the magic word before I roll the dice (I will do so on the screen so it’s all fair).

And tell your friends and family to watch too–if enough people join the stream, I may add some more games. 😉

Even if you don’t want to watch the stream because you despise free stuff (:-P), I wish everyone a safe, warm, full holiday surrounded by loved ones.

Sacred Inside

 

There is a desert in the corner of a man’s soul

Where he keeps a thing too precious.

He walks through the hot sand and scrambles over jagged rocks

With a skin full of water, looking over his shoulder to ensure

That nothing else follows him.

It sits all alone, a belief or memory or silly thought too fragile,

Too vital to his being to let it near another part of him.

The visits are frequent enough to keep the thing alive,

And perhaps one day the grains of sands and chunks of stone

Will have no choice but to succumb to the will of the thing

And you will catch a glimpse of it on the other side of a stream.
