Overwatch? Overthinking & Support your Support!

New season on Overwatch… And woah. It is not going well for me. Usually (as in the past 4 seasons) I rank platinum. Until last night. Went through my placement matches (7 of which with my OW bestie, thank you R!), and honestly…I sucked. Like…I think there was 1 redeeming match where I played semi well as Ana (my support main anyway). Otherwise…seriously, I was doing everything wrong. Making stupid mistakes. I mean…I was being (deliberately) distracted…but…I’m usually good under pressure or while being distracted. So yea. I’ve ended up barely scraping into gold, which sucks. As I need 500+ … Continue reading Overwatch? Overthinking & Support your Support!

Let’s talk about S-E…wait, that’s not how you spell Overwatch…

You do realise that playing a game character doesn’t turn you into that character, right? You don’t magically acquire their attributes or personality. You main Winston – are you a genius ape with an arc pylon? Probably not. You main Jesse? Is it always high noon? Do you crave cigars? Wear a stetson…? Don’t lie to me, these are serious questions. Do you know where I’m going with this yet? Tracer’s gay. ‘Ew. I’m never playing her again.’ – it’s cool, she probably doesn’t want you playing with her anyway. I mean playing on her. I mean playing as her. … Continue reading Let’s talk about S-E…wait, that’s not how you spell Overwatch…

Things I learnt from an evening of Halo…

It will come to no surprise to anyone that has me on their XBL friends list, that I play a lot of Halo. So yea. I played for awhile last night, and learnt a few things… Never play hide and seek with a Banshee. I had a good run, but the player eventually crashed the Banshee into the ground, just to kill me. Deadpool is someone you want on your team. Trust me on this. While playing SWAT on Complex, stalk your opponent, then assassinate them. And either giggle or do a victory jig. Over their corpse. Consequently, don’t spend too … Continue reading Things I learnt from an evening of Halo…

Sar’s ShOcktober// Game Gore

Day 17. So yesterday’s ShOcktober was all about Isaac Clarke, and how awesome Dead Space is. And all of his brutal deaths, got me thinking on some of the most brutal video game deaths that I’ve seen, along with the creepiest moments. So yea, today is gonna be a mash-up of all the video game scenes that have freaked me out, or made my inner Jigsaw squeal with bloody delight… F.E.A.R – sadly the video is really dark, but it sort of adds to the tension. The overall death is truly brutal though, and creepy as Hell! This is why … Continue reading Sar’s ShOcktober// Game Gore

Sar’s ShOcktober// CoD Zombies Soundtrack: Elena Siegman [+Treyarch Sound]

Day 12. ‘It’s a mere side effect…everything is normal.’ The ESC_Verse is in no way affiliated with Group 935, I just support their continued experiments on the living and/or dead…Oh, and their most appreciated offering of the ray gun ;-P Treyarch Sound, vocalist: Elena Siegman – The One (which goes with the Shi No Numa map. Locate the phone, answer it 3 times to activate the song, and unlock the achievement ‘dead air’.) Treyarch Sound, vocalist: Elena Siegman – Beauty of Annihilation (which goes with the der Reise map. Finding 4 (I think it’s 4? Going off memory here, not 100% sure) … Continue reading Sar’s ShOcktober// CoD Zombies Soundtrack: Elena Siegman [+Treyarch Sound]

Sar’s ShOcktober// Some Zombie Game Modes What I Like.

Day 10. Anyone who knows me, or who has perhaps visited the ESC_Verse before, knows that I’m slightly obsessed with zombies. Which is why today, I’m gonna ramble about my favourite zombie game modes. ‘What fun!’, I hear you cheer. You will notice that games such as Left 4 Dead 1/2, etcetc are not mentioned…because they’re getting mentioned later in the month, you nosey sod! God! Let’s start with Halo’s ‘Infection’ or ‘Living Dead’  playlists. Fast, frantic, fun! My 3 favourite f’s, actually. The point of this playlist is to either kill the survivors if you spawn as a zombie, … Continue reading Sar’s ShOcktober// Some Zombie Game Modes What I Like.

Sar’s ShOcktober// Rapture.

  ‘Would you kindly…?’   Day 6. Today I’m going to write about Rapture, the setting of the video games BioShock 1&2. To this day, BioShock 1 is easily the most atmospheric game I’ve ever played. The whole concept of Rapture is just amazing, and I’m actually gutted that BioShock Infinite won’t be set under water. I’m gonna pretty much assume that anyone reading this, has prior knowledge of the BioShock games, and knows the storyline. Which I’m not gonna chat about, as I just wanna fangirl all about how beautiful Rapture looks.   Rapture was created as a Utopia, … Continue reading Sar’s ShOcktober// Rapture.
