Video Mondaily – Weekend Shenanigans!

  Boy oh boy do we have an awesome selection of videos for your viewing pleasure today! Over this past weekend much fun was had in having the wits scared out of us in three different games: Survivors, Slender The Eight Pages and SCP: Containment Breach (SCP: CB). Three games with three different monsters that are capable of quantum teleportation (thank you Dr. Who for that one), have to be avoided and can scare the piss out of you at any given moment of time. Thanks to the amount of scares and fun which was had in having the scares we actually now have SEVEN different videos for you to enjoy! You can watch them all now or slowly allow them to filter into your mind over the coming week, thus sustaining you until the next Video Mondaily (depends on how you take your sustenance I guess).

Video Mondaily – The End of a Series

Well folks, it’s been a long and piss-fuelled journey. But finally, MMGaming has reached the end of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. To get here we braved monsters, the shadow, Alexander, monsters, computer crashes, monsters, a switch in player and did I mention monsters? It also is actually one of the few games we’ve completed in a series so huzzah for that! We hope you’ve enjoyed the series and we would love it if you checked out all the videos in our lovely playlist. We’d love it even more if you gave them a thumb, maybe a comment and if you like we really appreciate any subscribers. Don’t worry though dear friends, this is not the end. Tis an end, but not the end. We will have more videos and more series and (unfortunately for me and Tim) more scary game as well. We hope you will stick around for all of them. For now though, Seb out!

Anna review – At least she tried

A while back I made an attempt to play through the indie horror game Anna by Dreampainters. I even made three short videos of me playing, trying to show off the game which I believed would be quite good. These three videos, which show about an hour of maybe an hour and a quarter of play-time, got me about a third into the game, that is if this walkthrough is to believed. I have however since stopped playing because despite a sound premise and what could have been an awesome idea for a game, Anna was pretty damn far from Awesome. The idea behind Anna was indeed a sound one, a puzzle/horror game where you would explore small environments solving the puzzles provided to get to the next stage, meanwhile there would be a number of creepy and scary things which could occur at any time completely randomly. It sounded a lot like a less predictable Amnesia. I mean Amnesia was scary, but eventually you do learn that if you just hide for long enough every monster does disappear. In a game where, monster encounters say, could happen at any time with no forewarning then suddenly you are playing a very different game. Unfortunately it did not work out quite as we all hoped. I understand that the game was actually fairly anticipated which must have made a lot of people rather disappointed with the actual product.

Video Mondaily – Ever danced with Amnesia by the pale moonlight?

I’ve normally avoided posting new videos from our Amnesia series so that we can entertain and enthral you with a variety of different and exciting games each week. However, other than a continuing abundance of Torchlight 2 videos we have nothing new for you this week. It is worth saying that all is not lost though, because this particular video is particularly spine-chilling and entertaining. “Why?” I hear you cry. Well, dear readers, this particular video involves me absolutely shitting a brick on more than one occasion… Definitely worth a watch if you ask me… Enjoy!

Video Mondaily – Seb Stepping In

Some of you might have been enjoying our Amnesia series with Tim getting the heeby-jeebies on an episodic basis. I know I was enjoying it, it’s not often I see him in quite so much fear of his life. However, for whatever reason he has been struggling with getting Amnesia to run properly on his computer along with his recording equipment and so, after a long and difficult struggle, he has given up. I personally thought this was pretty unfortunate as it is one of our longest series and I thought a good one at that. Well, fortune smiled upon us that day as my own saved game in Amnesia was actually at a point fairly close to where Tim’s final episode stopped. So with a great deal of trepidation and inwardly cursing myself for the idea I started to play the indie game from Frictional Entertainment again. So far it’s been dark and scary and very scary, but I am persevering and as luck (if you can call it luck) would have it, my computer DOESN’T crash when playing the game. So today’s video Mondaily features the proud “restart” of our Amnesia series! Check after the jump to enjoy!

Video Mondaily – A Double Dose of Fear… And Some RTS!

Technically two of today’s videos are actually of horror games and so the whole “Double Dose of Fear” title does make perfect sense. Of course, it could be a little misleading in that neither of the games we were playing was actually FEAR and actually in the game Tim was playing he doesn’t really get scared… Much… Anyway! As we’ve had a sudden outpouring of videos in the last week you can enjoy three new MMGaming videos today! First up we’ve got my second attempt at playing the indie horror game Slender from Parsec Productions. Due to the absolute failure of my first try I decided to give the game another bash. What happened though you will only discover after the jump!

Endweek News – Release Date City, Colour Me Intrigued and Videos

Release Date City Just one release date for you this week. Developers Ronimo Games have announced that sometime in the next month the successful MOBA, fresh from XBLA and PSN, Awesomenauts will be getting a PC release version on Steam. There is not definite release date yet, but saying “this month” is close enough in my estimation. Also for those of you who own a Mac there is actually a Mac version in progress as well, so you’ll actually be able to try this one!

Slender and Vicnity: Warp Reality – Some Ideas for Your Little Minutes

So you’re busy, you’ve got about an hour before you have to deal with some stuff in the real world. That world into which I rarely venture. I understand that some people, for bizarre reasons, don’t have the time to sit down and play six straight hours of Skyrim or Mass Effect 3 and so while I do not understand I suppose I should take pity on them and offer them some solace. Thus here comes the second article in our series of Some Ideas for Your Little Minutes. These articles will be of games (or perhaps betas of games) that we can’t rightfully give full reviews, because we don’t classify them as full games. But importantly these games will not be something you need to sit down and focus on for hours on end! This time we have two games for your consideration: Slender by Parsec Productions and Vicinity: Warp Reality by students in their final year of their Diploma in Game and Entertainment Technology at Temasek Polytechnic.

Video Mondaily – Tenebris Lake and MMGaming

Now this is an exciting Video Mondaily guys! This week you can watch me and Tim playing the first short segment of the Amnesia mod: Tenebris Lake. Don’t worry folks, while we are creating this new series in the middle of a several other series of videos I don’t want you to worry, you will still be able to see Tim finishing off Amnesia: The Dark Descent AS well as this new series of videos. Now if you’ve read our review of Amnesia you know it’s one of the scariest games in existence, well this mod is even more ridiculously scary and caused a fair amount of heavy breathing and a fair amount of sleep was lost. These videos are also rather special because we decided to challenge ourselves further by playing the game together: I was controlling the mouse and looking around and suchlike while Tim was on movement and using the lantern. You can expect laughs and fear in equal abundance! So sit back and enjoy the first three videos of MMGaming playing Tenebris Lake!
