Changes to the News

We had a plan at MMGaming… We made our posting schedule and we would stick to it! Now, obviously, we aren’t professional writers and so there isn’t nearly enough incentive for us to manage to keep up with the posting every week (especially as we don’t have either the time or money to get enough games to keep up) but I would like to think that for the most part we do an acceptable job of keeping up with our schedule. Lately, due to exams both here in the UK and across the pond MMGaming has taken a back-seat for both of the major writers here (I.e. me and Nick) but even so I think we manage acceptable at keeping up… For the most part…

You see, something is terribly wrong here at MMGaming… Every Sunday was supposed to be News day… The Endweek News! Unfortunately, it has been well over four months since I last posted any news at all (minus a catch-up session in mid-October). This is clearly against the natural order of things and must be rectified if balance is to be restored. However, I do feel that changes have to be made and so I am posting this to inform you all of A. Why I Have Been so Quiet With the News and B. What we are Going to do to Rectify This! Read on…

Video Mondaily – Jumping on Command

A long time ago in a flat far, far away… (Also known as a few days ago in a flat in Edinburgh via an online messenger).

Tim: “Hey Seb, check out The Rake – Back to Asylum. Might be fun or make a good video.”

Seb: “What is it? What makes you say that?”

Tim: “It’s an Indie Horror game, check it out!”

Seb: “Uh… Sure! What’s the worst that could happen!?”

Well, I have demonstrated before, I have been known to do things on command and as you may have noticed my attitude towards playing The Rake by Mike R. was pretty gung-ho. After all… What could POSSIBLY go wrong with playing the free indie horror?

Well the answer to that is: “quite a lot actually” and if you are interested in watching me shrieking like a little girl in absolute terror then you ought to check out after the jump!

Video Mondaily – Here to get your PULSE racing

I have been feeling a little bit down on making more Black Mesa videos after the disaster which occurred a couple of weeks ago resulting in the loss of episodes 7, 8 and 9. And while I have also planned to do a few other bits and bobs, including a few of the more interesting encounters in Borderlands 2, I have yet to actually get round to it. I will say first of all that these things ARE still in the works and I do mean to finish Black Mesa but I felt that I wanted to take a little break from it and do something completely different.

Seb’s Skyrim Journal Part 8 – Nothing I can do?

Welcome back to Seb’s Journal of his adventures in Skyrim where I have the intention of doing ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING that the game has to offer. These articles will be of some of the best or most amusing experiences I have in the game and I will hopefully be coming out with them fairly regularly. If you are interested you can see where I left off last time here.

Tolfdir has managed to bring the giant glowing orb from Saarthal back to the College and it is sitting right in the centre of Hall of Elements. I don’t fully understand how they managed to get the thing, considering that it is bloody huge, all the way from there to here without even a giant orb shaped hole where the door used to be but I decided not to dwell on it. Tolfdir informs me that this some have started calling this thing the “Eye of Magnus” which means nothing to me but seems to hold some significance to him. I inform him that I succeeded in retrieving the books for the Library and that one of them seems to hold some relevance to the orb. Honestly that involved too much reading for me so I just lied and told him I had read it and let him tall me what the Eye was all about.

Video Mondaily – MissingNo Black Mesa

It’s been a fairly quiet week as far as videos are concerned, in fact it’s actually been a fairly quiet week as far as gaming is concerned (well, for me at least – you damn dirty coursework!). However, we do have a video that we can use for our Video Mondaily so fear not loyal viewers! This week’s video is the sixth episode in our Black Mesa series and follows up from Episode 5’s absolutely disastrous series of fails (definitely well worth the watch).

This episode is less of a gigantic fail than the previous one and sees me fighting my way through more Vortigaunts, Puzzles and Headcrabs. All in a days work of a theoretical physicist. There is not really much more to say about the video other than kick back and check after the jump!

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).
